How many motivational seminars have you attended? As someone who operated a speaker bureau for ten years, I can't count how many conferences I attended. These exceptional people taught me a lot in that decade, and I'm very grateful for these teachings.
There are thousands of motivational people in the Speaking Industry who have achieved their goals and became famous, rich or just plain happy! People have inspired me who have suffered unbelievable hardship such as Shilo Harris, that most of us could never imagine.
On this blog, you will also read many of life's struggles that I have endured.
We can all be motivated to change our circumstances significantly when we hear stories of other people's struggles and successes.
And, with all good intentions, that is what we set out to do.
But something stops us.
We don't take action!
Why? Most likely, we don't believe we can do it! Do you realise you are a Divine substance? You created out of the same stuff as God! The Source? Creator? Whatever you want to name it. And now, in this chaotic world we live in, this is probably a good time to invite spirituality into your life!
How do I know this? I've read hundreds of books on this topic, and I have studied Near Death Experiences for over 30 years. The majority of the near-death experiences conclude the same finding; we are from source energy and can tap into that energy to create the lives we desire.
Now I realise I might lose some of you hear but stay with me a while as I explain in more detail.
Ask yourself this question. Do I genuinely believe I can achieve this goal? Deep down, the truthful answer is probably, no. Another question you might ask is; do I deserve this? And, I bet, your deep-seated belief system is also saying no.
How do you fix this? Try meditation and affirmations or explore hypnosis. If you have a Spotify account, you will find many meditation programs on the app. Or you can scroll through YouTube and also find an abundance of free meditations and hypnosis. Other ways is to go out into nature's gifts, and sit and listen to the birds, the sea, the river or where you can find a tranquil place.
Sometimes taking action is too hard. It might involve getting up two hours earlier to exercise, read, write or work on your business plan. Most highly successful people are early risers. For example, if I do not get out of my bed before 5:30 am, it bothers me. Waking up around 4:30 am is my favourite time because of:
I get moving, and it helps me accumulate my 10K minimal steps per day.
I watch the sunrise (if it is not raining).
The peacefulness is bliss.
Instead of procrastinating, I am motivated.
Rising early in the morning gives me more amazing hours to enjoy in my life.
Listening to the birds calling out to each other is lovely.
I reassure myself constantly that I am living an abundant life.
Commit to rising one hour earlier each day and use this time to be creative, exercise, study or work on small goals to get you to where you desire to be. The photo above is one I took at around 5:00 a.m. just outside my apartment, I would have missed this if I was not an early riser.
I DON'T DESERVE
A big one! How many of us feel we don't deserve to achieve our goals? Belief systems like this often result from our childhood. Maybe you were bullied as a child; your parents divorced, and you blamed yourself, came from a low-income family, and the list goes on. When we have deep-seated beliefs like these, we often sabotage our success.
There are many ways to help heal yourself, and I do not believe that you need to spend money on counselling; for instance, there are books such as "The Science of Getting Rich" by Wallace D. Wattles that has helped thousands of people change their mindset. You can download a free copy here.
Read The Science of Getting Rich repeatedly until your subconscious accepts it as the truth.
Gratitude is a powerful manifesting tool. It is also helpful in lifting bad moods. When we are in gratitude, our vibration lifts, and it helps us feel better, and when we feel better, we have a more positive day. When you think back about when you woke up in a bad mood, did everything else that day follow suit? Most likely, it did. Like attracts like, we are all made of vibrational energy, and our job on Earth as creators is to be in a positive vibe.
You can be grateful for your health, friends, family, car, the flowers in the garden, the air you breathe, your pet, the rain, the sun etc.
Every morning wake up, and instead of reaching for your phone, think about how grateful you are that you have another day to take steps towards your goals. Then when you get out of bed to write down 20 things that make you feel grateful.
Small changes like this can make a big difference.
