3 Steps to being Happier and Healthier

Focus on You:
3 steps to being happier and healthier.

3 STEPS TO BEING HAPPIER & HEALTHIER

 

In my quest for learning more about bringing abundance, wealth and prosperity into my life, I have heard a few things that have really stuck with me. I wanted to share three of these with you, in hopes that they resonate with you, or maybe you have some to share with me. 

1. Focusing on world disasters made by man fuels the disasters. 

What on earth am I talking about?

Well, when you think of what you like or don’t like, want or don’t want, we create a vibration that the universe picks up, right? So, when we hear about crazy dude in that country/state/province/etc doing that thing, and we all talk about how crazy and scary and dumb it is, we are giving it energy. If there is no energy given, then it fades away.

This stuck with me. In concept, I agree. If there’s a tantrum and you give it no attention, usually it will cease. HOWEVER, while I understand that fueling the fire can make more people jump in and act irresponsibly, I am not sure that ignoring or disregarding bad deeds will make bad deeds go away. I wish it would. So, while this makes sense on some level, I am choosing to not talk about them, not think about them, and try to spread positive joy around the people that I interact with each day. Perhaps if we all tried that, we could start to reduce the actions of others that were caused in anger. 

That being said, I do not plan to make this community about social events, or rant about politics. I plan to embrace happy things, and remind myself that I can be the most effective when I am happy and healthy. 

2. Remove NOT, NO and DON’T 

I can credit The Secret and Michael Losier for this one. 

I am actively trying to remove NOT, NO and DON’T from my vocabulary. How? Change the answer. Say what DO you want?

“If you don’t change what you see, you will not see change.”
Change what you see, and you WILL see change. 

We say those words so easily that it’s hard to censor them first. While it will sound silly in the beginning, just stop, ask yourself what you do want, and rephrase. I believe it will help us know our desires easier, and it puts out into the universe a statement that can be relied on, and not misinterpreted. (Yes, I said it there.) 

The Secret says that the universe cannot decipher those words. 
“I do not want to be late.” (Be Late. Got it.) 
Whereas, if you say “I want to be on time.” 
There’s no way to misinterpret that. 

3. Manners ((under construction))

Those are three changes I am implementing in my life, and I have noticed a calming effect, and even that makes me happier. I believe it is all about changing what we see so that we can see change in ourselves.

Choosing a direction and going for it.

My last 10 days have been pretty exciting. I’ve been planning, re-planning, acting on the plans, revamping plans, and listening to inspirational audios to keep me centered. 

1. Meditation. I have started (re-started?) meditating again. Every solo chance I get, I listen to a guided meditation on a topic that I am wanting to embrace at that time. Sometimes it’s gratitude, sometimes it’s morning mindfulness, and other times it might be abundance or body scan, just to remind my body that it’s ok to relax. I notice that my days are different when I can start with that, and that weekends tend to throw me off balance. My schedule changes, I am no longer alone in the mornings, and I tend to spend more time online and in stores, and I find that the influence of media and other people changes my mindset. When I can center my thoughts and choose a mantra for the day, I tend to go back to it for at least half the day. When I start the day and allow media and other things to creep in, I notice my self-talk and balance within the universe waivers. I found that very interesting, as I become more self-aware this time around. Do you notice a difference in yourself? Maybe that’s partly why Mondays are so difficult.

2. Direct Sales. I used to have my own DS businesses with three or four different companies, and focused on one in particular. Within a 9 month period, I aimed for the top tier, and was awarded into that tier. I received top discounts, and could have continued competing for free trips, cars, etc., but by the time I got there, I was no longer motivated. I had made it to where I wanted to be, I had shown I could recruit more than anyone on my team, I could out-sell, out-advertise, etc., and in less than a year while working my full-time job. I had customers across 4 cities, and it was fun… until it wasn’t.

I realized that the fun was the challenge, but deep down, I wanted to mentor. I knew I could reach this stage, but I wanted someone(s), a team to work with me, to challenge each other, etc. I could not find that person who wanted to grow their business, and do it independently like I did. I didn’t want to have to provide all of their supplies, because they didn’t want to. I didn’t want to have to show up because something else more interesting came their way. I had more passion, more dedication, and I had no way of sharing it.

Until now. 

I am in the process of creating a 90 Day/90 Way planner to increase business, and make more money. So I have decided to offer daily tips for free in the meantime, and gauge the success of people, answer questions, etc., before I launch my new planner. So, introducing the link above for Grow your Business (name subject to change), where you can join on fb, and get daily tips and tricks.

I have had a lot of success in these direct sales businesses, and received recognition regionally, and nationally. What would you do to have the same? Is this a goal of yours?

3. Goals! This is exciting for me as well. I have decided that I am going to start focusing on what my 2018 goals will look like, and make a plan. What do you want 2018 to look like? It’s only a couple of months away, and I do not want to be planning it on New Years’ Eve – I plan to have a PLAN, a GOAL, and best of all, SUCCESS.

Abundance, Wealth & Prosperity

xennialbloggerAll the things!

In the last post, I was commenting on The Secret. Since then, I finished listening to the audio version, and watched the movie. I am working on making my thoughts positive (the universe does not recognize negating words, like don’t) and I feel like I am achieving some result. I have tried to make it a priority to stop and compile a gratitude list, and then challenge myself to add a few more. I try to do this when I recognize I am feeling particularly grumpy or down. Sometimes it’s a superior at work who pushes my buttons, and sometimes I get carried away with ill-fitting thoughts. I try to recenter myself with gratitude and thankfulness, and review the three key words I am working on: Abundance, Wealth and Prosperity

Speaking of wealth, there’s a podcast that I have been listening to, and it’s great. Two ladies, Cait and Carrie, have a program called Budgets and Cents. I love it. At first, it confused me. The podcast description is about changing your money so you can change your life. I expected discussions about personal finance, saving money, dealing with investments or side hustles, and instead, you receive a personal view of the life of these two women, who go through the aches and pains of starting businesses through blogging, freelance and self-employment, and how they changed their mindset on money. 

I would love to hear if you think that the Law of Attraction works, and what it’s done for you. I’d also like to learn more about what you turn on when you need inspiration or entertainment. 

Send me your comments and questions below. 🙂 

Until next time…

UPDATE APRIL 26, 2018: Budget and Cents is now Honest Money Conversations! A few small changes, but it’s still our Cait & Carrie, talking about all things money.
