FINDING BALANCE.

In my previous blog on having a productive mindset, the very last point on that topic was balance. Fortunately the desire for peace of mind and the desire of having a balance life have become an increasing topic of discussion. Vast majority of people will like to find a way to live their life in balance. Life is very much a balancing act and we are always a step away from falling. You are always trying to achieve goals, all while trying to keep in balance the various elements of your lives. If any aspect of your life takes a disproportionate amount of energy you will have to short change the other aspects. Finding balance is dealing with areas that take up too much energy and align them, so that you have energy available for others areas. It is up to you to balance all different aspect of your life.

Balance is not the final goal but and on going process. Rather than trying to stay balance think of yourself practicing balance over and over again. The problem is always figuring out what is more important and doing them. In order to practice balance you will have to re-examine your priorities regularly. In this write up I will talk on six ways you can practice balance.

Set goals in every area of your life. To assist you remember your ultimate goal is balance.

Make time to reassess yourself on daily basis.

Make conscious decision to become balance.

Access your life as it is now and make changes in the areas that don’t align.

Be willing to take risk in every areas of your life.

Plan every task. Make a list of your daily, monthly , and weekly plans.

The key to your balance is knowing when you’ve lost it. Never get so busy making a living that you forget to get a life. And remember you will never fine time for anything if you don’t make time for it. Focus on being balanced success is balance. In my next blog I will talk about the importance of saving.

HAVING A PRODUCTIVE MINDSET

A productive mindset is one that make use of your resources. It is not trying to do everything and be everything. It is making the best of what you have while enjoying the process. In this write up I will love to talk about the characteristics of a productive mindset.

Positive attitude : This is a must have when working on having a productive mind set. Not just for productivity but for success in general. You need to stay positive to achieve positive things in life. Yes we all get negative thoughts, yes we all get nervous. The good news is you are in control of your thoughts and can decide to change the negative thoughts into positive ones.

Persistence: This is my personal favorite. Although having motivation is a huge part of what gets you working towards your goals, you need persistence to keep you going. Most often motivation isn’t strong enough to pull you through difficult times. It is guaranteed that you will struggles , there will be times when you will feel like giving up. Being persistent is the only thing that can keep you going .

Vision: To be able to visualize your goals helps you focus and gives you and idea of what their outcome will look like. Vision helps gives you a variety of goals and their outcome. It is more difficult to strive for goals without having an idea of what the goals are.

Self-confidence: This was a topic on it’s own in my previous blog. It is believing that you are fully capable and can do whatever you set your mind to. Without self-confidence and faith you can not value the potential of your goal.

Balance: To function well and get the most out of life, we must maintain balance. Doing too much or pushing too hard on anything can lead to burnout or frustration. Take some time off for yourself, go on vacations. It is important to have fun while working towards your goals.

To conclude with, productivity is the absolute key to success. It also gets rid of negativity in your live. Like always I will love your opinion in the comment section. Remember to always come back for more Real Life Inspiration.

FIVE THINGS TO BOOST YOUR SELF-CONFIDENCE.

Low self-esteem is like driving through with your hand breaks on. Nobody is born with limitless self-confidence. IF anyone seems to have an incredible self- confidence it’s because he/she had worked on building it for years. I always lacked self-confidence. Everyone’s opinion seemed to matter for some reason. This held me back from making decisions that pleased me. I needed to over com that fear. This is something we all face to some degree. I still have fears undoubtedly . Now I know that I can beat them, I can break through the walls of fear.

As an aside, I know some people make strong distinction between self-esteem and self confidence. The difference being wether you believe your worthy of respect from others (self-esteem) and wether you believe in yourself (self confidence). In the end both amount to the same thing. You do not have to be reliant on others to increase you self-confidence. If you believe that you’re not very attractive and entertaining to be around, you should think again. We all have something unique about us that everyone enjoys.

Below I outline FIVE things that will help you take control of your self-confidence. there’s more, but these five worked for me and I hope it does for you.

Speak to yourself: it’s always delightful to get a good feed back from others. However always seeking approval from outside is and easy trap. Approve yourself, be the one the one that says the words of encouragement you long to hear.

Build your capacity of energy: A bit of stress can be useful to keep alert and give us the extra energy needed to perform. Knowing how to engage with the feelings in your body will expand your presence rather than shrinking it.

Photoshop yourself image: ourself image is very important to us more than we often realize. Often we create a mental image of ourself, and if this image isn’t fixed and immutable, you need to change it. Use your mental photoshopping skill and work on your self image. Figure out why you see yourself in a certain way and change it.

Get to know yourself: when your trying to overcome a negative self image and replace it with self-confidence, your enemy is yourself. listen often to your thoughts, think about what makes you different, what makes you happy. Think of the limitations you have created for yourself. Dig deep within you, face the things you fear the most.

Groom yourself: sometimes changing certain aspects about yourself, helps boost your self-confidence. Get new habits like exercising often, shower twice a day, dress nicely, go out when necessary , be more organized, chase you goals and learn to always take risk.

To conclude with, I will emphasize on the point that , you are in charge of your own happiness. If something makes you happy , go for it. People fear what they don’t understand. Feel free to communicate with me in the comment section and don’t forget rot come back for my write up on having a productive mindset.

MOVING FORWARD.

From my previous blog titled (GET INSPIRED), you get to know a side of me people never open up about. I am not here to write more about my past, not this time. In my conclusion I emphasized on the fact that we are capable of so much more than we think. God is constantly trying to open our eyes to amazing possibilities. In life there are two questions that confront people at every place and time, questions that confront you and me. Are you satisfied with the direction the world is moving? Are you satisfied with your life?

These questions are always before you , within you and around you. You are capable of incredible things. Don’t be afraid to embrace your beautiful self. The more you accept how imperfect you are, the more others will. Do not be afraid of possibilities, they are always so many more than the ones you see easily. Moving forward is never easy, there will be joy in the journey as well as a heart-wrenching pain. Any one who says the path is easy is to be distrusted. Life is difficult and messy, there’s no point trying to mask that or pretend otherwise.

How often have you fallen into the trap of thinking that the things of this world are more important than they really are? How often have we mistaken that certain things, pleasure and experience will make us happy for longer than they did? Yes there may have been times in your life you tried with all your might to overcome destructive habits and failed. We all have insatiable heart desires. Today is a new day and every moment is a chance to turn it around. This might be the begining of a new season of grace in your life. I hope it is, I pray it is. Where ever you are today I invite you to open your self up, love yourself like I learned to do. Try new things, leave the mistakes of the past in the past. Make new mistakes, we learn from the mistakes we make. Take risk and don’t fear the consequences. Only very few things bring us happiness in life.

Check on my write up on Successful and productive routines. It’s a major step to moving forward. In my next blog I will write more on having a productive mindset. I am open to your opinions in the comment section even if you don’t agree with me. Remember to always come back for more.

HAVING A PRODUCTIVE AND SUCCESSFUL ROUTINE

Few things bring us happiness like deeply rooted daily routines. There is something about daily routines and rituals that lead the human mind to flourish. This is something I have always struggled with. This involves creating strong routines around sleep, diet, exercise and communion with friends and family. Perhaps it doesn’t come easy with everyone. For a long time I blamed this on my life with all it’s irregularities as a teenager. As I grow older I have come to realize that what I need is more effort and fewer excuses.

The central precept of work is to maximize ora et labora – latin for pray and work. Do you have a daily routine that grounds the days of your life in health and happiness? I have been fascinated my whole life with men and women who have been successful. I have studied their lives and it always becomes apparent that they each have their own rules of life. They each have strong daily routines. It’s a powerful lesson that even as I sit here working, I know its a lesson that I have to take again.

Developing a daily routine can help you feel in control of everything. It can aid our mental health and help us cope with change. Building a routine allows us to make time for important things. From my months of research on productive daily routines, I was able to come up with four personal daily routines we should all adopt for success and productivity.

Maintaining these habits is never easy. Starting them is the key. Once you start developing daily routines your mind becomes open to new ideas. I hope you enjoyed this article.

  1. organization; this includes, making up your bed every morning, cleaning your surroundings, having a daily schedule, planing, setting priorities and goals.

Get inspired

I have never felt good about breaking laws and hurting people. It doesn’t bring me peace. I figured in life it’s either them or me. The thing is I was so hungry to be accepted, known, loved, respected and recognized. I knew if I didn’t lie about who I am, I wouldn’t get the things I desire. i supposed we all have the basic survival instinct, but most of the people who judge people like me have never been ignored or looked down upon. it breeds depression and desperate people do desperate things.

so I did what I had to do. I lied, i lied about myself and background. my siblings and parents. everybody was always better off than I was, well at least to me they were. i knew it was wrong but I was young. The lies went on and got even deeper. Some lies became the truth. I quickly discovered that a girl needs more than lies, you have to live the life style you claim to have. you had to attend parties, even throw them. Not too long I was a whole new person even hurting those that knew me for me and loved me for me. I told myself that it wouldn’t be forever but we tell ourselves all sort of things. I told myself once high school was over, in college I would be myself , I would change.

Time went by and I was able to keep up with the lies. I got into college and it crossed my mind. Nobody knows me here. This is my chance to live my truth, the real me. I thought about making new friends and living and honest life. Later that night I was invited to a really cool party with some really rich and cool kids. It wasn’t long before I had the reputation of lying again. About who I am. The lies they all came back. I couldn’t sleep at night, it was high school all over gain. Yes I felt guilty I love my parents, I love what they do , I was proud of them, yet I wanted more. I decided to change colleges. yes I did. In a new country far away from home where no one really knows me.This time I was determined to start all over and live my truth. This is my chance, my heart was filled with hope. I never wanted to be hungry with fame and popularity, I wanted what was real. I remember my first day. I immediately connected with someone. She was someone most people will call a nerd but she was exactly what I was.

Hope filled my heart again. I was honest with her, and she loved me even more . I spent my entire life chancing fake friends, who only cared about what I was and not who I am. who would have left me in a heartbeat if they found out who I really was. I became popular, not from lies but from excelling, In my grades and college sporting actives . Yes I had the fame I seek, this time it was for something honest, something I was good at, Surrounded by friend who loved me for me. They say every saint has a past and every sinner has a future. If I could lean in close to you and whisper something in your ear, it would be, if there are pieces of your past that are weighing you down, its time to leave them behind. You are not what happened to you. You are someone unimaginably greater than you ever considered, and maybe its time to consider all possibilities that are within you.
