Investing in YOU is something to do all year long, not just for a holiday, or a week or just once in a while. Yes this might be challenging sometimes, but in the long run taking care of your health and well-being helps everything and everyone around you. I hope you enjoyed the holiday season being with family and friends. A new year approaches and a new beginning. Keep taking small strategic steps toward your goals and desires. Each success brings you closer to a life of tranquility instead of a life filled with stress and worry. You will become happier, healthier and more content if you work toward your dreams in a slow steady pace. Doing more doesn’t always make things better, and you will be surprised how relaxing life can be once you begin to focus on what you are passionate. You will feel a true sense of renewal and begin to finally live the inspired lifestyle you desire.

Tranquility is defined by Dictionary.com as a “quality or state of being calmness, peacefulness, quiet, and serenity.” This is exactly what I wish for all of you!

Whether it’s during the holiday season, the start of a New Year or just another normal day making well-being a priority is essential. Did you ever notice how some days are super busy and other days are quiet and peaceful?  Sometimes you may even feel a little anxious and uncertain. Wouldn’t it be great if you could jump start your day on your terms and be full of energy and unstoppable happiness? You can have this once you decide to create a real change in your life with some simple action steps that will bring you to the next level and beyond. To follow are some systematic steps toward a lifestyle of peace and tranquility as you move ever closer to successfully doing what you want to do.

Easy Steps To Improve Your Well-Being With More Well-being-this-way1Tranquility and Less Stress

  • Start your day an hour earlier and finally create some private time for you. Once you do so you will be pleasantly surprised just how much you  get done during this peaceful time of the day. Mix it up a bit and add some of your favorite music while enjoying the beauty around you. What a great way to start your day!
  • Choose something that you like to do and that you are passionate about. This could be writing, prayer, meditation, or even exercise. It doesn’t matter the activity as long as it’s whatever you like to do and will shift your thoughts into a more positive frame of mind. (I love my time for writing, exercise, and researching information about fantasy sports with music in the background)
  • Do less. I’m sure you have heard of the K.I.S.S. principle- Keep it simple stupid. Do you use this principle? If not, why? Stop now and make the decision to remove one item that you do often and are not getting the results you desire, and simplify it. By using this principle you will get more done, be happier and less stressed.
  • Set goals for 3 months, 6 months and a year. Enjoy the journey. Pick one to start working on in the short term that will move you towards your longer-term goal. Choose one thing at a time, focus on it, and make it happen.
  • Create a morning and evening routine to start and end your day on a positive note.
  • Empty your E mail inbox and clear your desk regularly. This will help you if you are feeling overwhelmed.
  • Respond to others without reacting. Raise your awareness to your surroundings. If someone says or does something to you that you don’t like, say and do nothing. Count to 10 before you respond. If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t!
  • Be kind and compassionate. Be thoughtful of how others feel. Think about what the other person might be going through. Don’t judge them. Remember there are two sides to every story.
  • Be patient, kind, not hard on yourself.  If you had a little too much to eat during your day, or at a party, don’t beat yourself up. This will get you nowhere fast. Give your body some love, create time into your schedule and go for a walk. Clear your mind from the stress and think positive thoughts.
  • Move your body. Exercise. See if you can make this a daily habit. Get into the habit. Start simply with 5 minutes each day. Expand the time with what works for you. Exercise not only helps you lose weight but it could make you feel so much better like it has done for me.
  • Find your passion. Do what you love to do regularly. Let your creativity shine through. You will be happier, more tranquil and less stressed.
  • Be held accountable. Find a coach or partner who will support you to on your journey in life.
  • Review and write down your financial plan to simplify your finances as you focus on growing your wealth.

You really do have the power to jump start your day and be full of energy and unstoppable happiness! All it takes to get started is choosing one action step and following through with focused attention. You will create real change once you start. Remember to believe in yourself because you can do anything that you set your mind to. Let today be the day that you make the decision that will lead you toward less stress and more tranquility as your dreams become reality.

To your health, wealth, and happiness,

My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.
~Henry Ford

Who comes to your mind when you think of the word friend? Some of you know many people, as far back to childhood, high school or have college buddies that are friends and keep up with them using social media. You’ve probably noticed using the internet just how easy it is to meet and make new friends and build relationships you may have not done so otherwise. Yes, technology has worked its way into our personal relationships, but do we really know what it means to be a friend?

Dictionary.com defines the word friend as

A person attached to another by feelings of affection or personal regard 

a person who gives assistance; patron; supporter

How many friends can you speak with openly, who are good listeners, and are there for you? These are the people who don’t get mad over nonsense and would never judge you. We’re not talking about those who do and then decide not be your friend anymore. Life is too short for that. We’re shining light on those who you can be yourself with no matter what, and agree to disagree. A true friend is someone who believes in you and you share feelings of mutual closeness with an uncanny amount of rapport and trust that only grows with time, nonstop understanding, and a trust between one another.
 
It’s not necessary to talk to them all the time and you may only keep in touch periodically. It could be a week, month or even a year later, but when you do reconnect it’s as if you had never stopped talking.  You have a special bond, a feeling inside that radiates positive energy, peace, excitement, joy, and love. True friends are one of life’s wonderful blessings. They are exceptionally rare, sacred, and a treasure to have.
 

Did you know that you already have a trusted friend who will never let you down?  One you can trust completely, one who will always keep your most precious secrets secret, and one who is literally on call 24-7. That’s pretty amazing, right?  Realize who your best friend really is.

 

You Are Your Own Best Friend.

Yes, Powerful YOU!

 

When you appreciate this friendship with yourself, you will be able to have the fullness in experiences with all of your “other” friends. This is because you have learned to find joy and contentment within yourself.  When you love and make friends with yourself, you find that you are not as demanding of others and feel disappointed by them. This is because you are meeting your own needs and not looking outside yourself for others to fill that void. You will realize you have everything you would ever want. You will discover that it is all within you.  By acknowledging your positive qualities, strengths, and shortcomings is how  to truly appreciate yourself.  Love yourself and become your own best friend.  Allow and accept yourself for who you are and realize that you are perfect (flaws and all) exactly the way you are.

Let today be the day you make a commitment to you by becoming your own best friend.  Be gentle with yourself. Show yourself grace and kindness because you really do matter.  Set aside quality time for you.

  • take a daily walk, start with 5 minutes
  • journal, even if it’s one sentence
  • clear your mind, by listening to music that relaxes you

It’s your choice, however something that you don’t already do now and it’s something that you really enjoy.

What could you do  now that will  enhance your friendship with you? Don’t worry about the past, or the future.  Enjoy the moment, let life flow by, becoming the friend who never lets you down.

It’s my pleasure to share a poem  being my own best friend.

 

Move Forward Today

Life goes by fast 

Don’t worry about the past 

Tranquility is close by 

Be still and listen for your why 

Take time for you now 

With patience you will find how

 Move forward with what you love each day

 Going within is the way 

As your mind wanders about 

Trust you can heal your doubt 

Sadness comes and goes 

Smile, buy yourself a beautiful rose

 When tears roll down your face 

Stop and give yourself some space 

Fear making a change and feel alone 

Today step out of your comfort zone 

The bigger the change, the bigger the test 

All is well, do your best 

Make a commitment to you. 

Something different each day new 

Happiness is your birthright 

Believe you are the shining light!

 

 

Remember to share:

Will you be in the same place as you are five years from now? Are you happy and enjoying your life? Focus on what you desire as if it is yours now. Visualize your success and have positive thoughts.

Experiencing challenges teaches you many invaluable lessons.   The number of times you succeed is in direct proportion to the number of times you fail and keep trying. Don’t give up.  Doubts and fears might pop up however they are temporary obstacles.

Be persistent. Focus on one step at a time to reach your goal. You will have a great feeling when you successfully meet the challenge. All great achievements require time, endurance, and a push to get through to move towards your goals.

Surround yourself with others who support you and are positive and avoid the people who give off negative energy or put you down. Openly share your talents with others.

You don’t need to know all your answers in advance.  Have a clear idea of the goal you desire to reach. Take one step at a time and be patient with yourself. Once you muster up the courage to begin, you’ll find the courage to succeed.  If you can believe it you can achieve it.

Share your own formula for creative success.

Survivor – Eye Of The Tiger lyrics
Risin’ up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance
Now I’m back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive

So many times, it happens too fast
You trade your passion for glory
Don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive

[Chorus]
It’s the eye of the tiger
It’s the thrill of the fight
Risin’ up to the challenge
Of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he’s watching us all with the
Eye of the tiger

Face to face, out in the heat
Hangin’ tough, stayin’ hungry
They stack the odds
Still we take to the street
For the kill with the skill to survive

[Chorus]

Risin’ up straight to the top
Had the guts, got the glory
Went the distance
Now I’m not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive

[Chorus]

The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger

Start your day with a positive thought. Your attitude is key to your happiness.  If you are angry, frustrated and focusing on what is not good, then each day will be  more of a challenge and less enjoyment of life.  How you perceive and view your challenges will make a difference in your life,   Instead of anger, negativity and fear choose happiness. Life is precious.

Make a decision to  be patient, loving, and not so hard  on yourself.    Live life to the fullest and be the one to achieve your dreams and desires.

Each of us needs a boost now and then, towards achieving our goals and dreams.  We all feel fear.  What would it be like to you when you feel the fear you decide to do it anyway.  It’s so much better than procrastinating and taking no action.  When you do what you fear you will have an amazing feeling after you take the action towards your fear.  If you are waffling with your decision, ask yourself what simple step can I take now to embrace my fear?

Be your best friend and listen to your heart.  Don”t let what others stop you from what you desire. Believe in your abilities, live your passion and be the confident you.

Watch the video below and be inspired to feel your fear and do it anyway.

Relaxing music can do wonders for you when you want to take a moment out of your day for some “me time”. It’s easy. Close your eyes, breath deeply several times and feel each muscle in your body relax.

Are you feeling a little stressed? You have choice as to how you are going to handle the stress. It might be a challenge at first, and it takes practice, but you can decide to push the pause button for some well deserved time in order for you to regenerate your mind, body, and soul.  Take a moment and enjoy the beauty of nature.

You will be happier you did.

“The highest good is like water. Water gives life to the ten thousand things and does not strive. It flows.” Lao Tzu – Tao Te Ching

Are you thinking about your growing to do list, and feeling stressed out.   If your emotions are getting the best of you know there are solutions within your grasp. Your thoughts and emotions are very powerful. Use them to your advantage instead of stuffing them down and holding them inside of you. Change your thought to a more positive one.  Recall a past event where you were proud of yourself and happy. Learn to let go of those negative thoughts that don’t serve you. If you are struggling, be open, share them with a trusted friend who will listen and support you.

If you are not quite ready to share, then take a moment and listen to the meditation music within the video below.  You will find the calming and soothing music by Marcomé.  Her music will help calm your nerves and bring you closer to a place of peace and tranquility. As you listen, also watch the beauty within the nature images on the video. When I look at images and listen to her music, it helps clear my mind,  brings me more present, and changes my thoughts.

Take the time to relax. Stop, be still, listen, and don’t do anything.for five minutes. Take the time to free your mind, body, and soul as you breathe deeply with focused intention. It takes some practice however, you can learn to be patient with yourself and soothe your spirit along the way.

Go with the flow more instead of get caught up with all you have to do. You will be much happier each and every day.

To your health, wealth, and happiness,

Remember to share:

Take a moment to look around and see there is an abundance of hope around us if we just believe. Believing in our dreams or aspirations, let alone ourselves, isn’t always easy, since life can become quite chaotic and we can become lost in the process. When those moments of hesitation or self-doubt arise then it’s within those moments when we need to slow down, quiet our minds and reaffirm our decision to believe in ourselves by feeling the fear and doing it anyway. The power of action can be liberating. You only need to put one step forward to begin the process of believing in you.

Believe in You

When you lack passion, feel overwhelmed or are filled with uncertainty, you will see those feelings of disbelief set in. Such feelings serve as a signal for you to dig deeper in what is really going on inside of yourself. Take the time to look for inner guidance and learn to trust your instincts. As you find answers you will grow to recognize your strengths and abilities and not dwell solely on your limitations. You have the power from within to believe. Never forget that belief is a state of mind that is strengthened with patience, dedication, and plenty of practice.

What are your goals, hopes, or desires? Have you wanted to try something different or set out on a new adventure but stopped yourself before even getting started? I know I have many times and I suspect I will again, but the one thing that has kept me moving closer to my dreams is focused action. Sometimes life demands and obligations wreak havoc which can cause fear deep within. There is no need to be afraid because 99% of the time what we fear doesn’t happen. There is a story you are telling yourself, and it will get you nowhere.  There can be miracles when you believe.  It all starts and ends with you.  When the time is right and you are ready it shows up.  Be patient with the process, practice being kind with yourself, and believe that miracles will happen. Once you make the decision to take action then you are half way there. Start with the thought of believing you can and you will achieve your goals. You can do anything you set your mind to.

Find an environment that you can trust, feel safe, and where you can begin to create real change in your life. Once you begin the journey you may discover an ever-growing stream of obstacles that block your path. Perhaps fear might get in the way or you may even create nonessential tasks to avoid a situation that’s been on your to do list for a long time. Either way, you want to be prepared and follow through on the decision to make a different choice. There is no need to ever beat yourself up because you haven’t achieved your goal. Just remember to focus on the process of believing in your heart that you can and that you will. Once you do this you will find that obstacles become minor distractions and you become stronger in the process.

Imagine what your life would be like if you worried less, lived a life filled with confidence, and that you enthusiastically took action with an ease and flow that only comes when you truly believe. You will experience your dreams when you believe in yourself and that you can achieve what you set your mind to.

Are you committed to what you do? Do you have belief in you?

If you don’t believe in your abilities right now just ponder a moment that someone in your life who let you know or showed you that they believed in you. This could be a friend, a partner, or a coach. How did it feel? Was the moment filled with happiness and relief or was it filled with disbelief? Your answer can tell you a lot about how much you do or don’t believe in yourself. It’s wonderful knowing that someone in your life believes in you. It’s a special feeling inside that touches your heart and helps you to start believing in yourself as well. Do you ever wonder what they see in you? Why they never question or doubt your ability? Hopefully you understand that others can see in us the things we fail to because they don’t have preconceived notions or the self-defeating talk that we carry around with us. No matter how many cheerleaders you may have in your corner it’s still up to you to find the inner strength to accept your gifts and talents and use them to create the life you’ve dreamed about. You want to be able to forgive others who may be holding you back (including yourself) and accept the fact that you, your feelings and your dreams really do matter.

Sometimes we need to step back to see things just as they are.  It just may take another person to show you just how beautiful and wonderful you really are for you to see it for yourself.  I know this was the case for me when I started on my journey of wealth and well-being. Jumping on board when a good friend or loved one believes in you is the best gift you can give yourself. Others are there for support and can guide, lead, or even provide you a road map until you are ready to take the reins for yourself. Learn to use their confidence in your favor whenever doubt or uncertainty creep in. Before long you won’t have to rely on motivation or strength from someone else because you will understand and believe in yourself. It all begins when you accept and trust yourself. Remember you are human, nobody is perfect. Do the best that you can do. Mistakes happen, so you might as well learn the valuable lessons, share the wisdom, and then move on! There will be more challenges and even bigger lessons just ahead. When you fall and then rise again, YOU become a stronger person because you’ve learned to believe in yourself without doubt and fear. Believe, face your fears, persevere, and you will achieve!

I’ve shared a ton of information and it may seem a bit overwhelming. Take some time and save the quick tips listed below. You can share them with friends, associates and loved ones. Please print them out and read them each day so you can learn to believe in yourself and allow the world to benefit from all that you have to offer.
Enjoy these…

Simple Steps to Believing In You

  • First you must “Believe You Can”.
  • Take baby steps towards your goals.
  • Keep moving forward.
  • Never give up. Always choose to persevere because when it’s time and you are ready, it will happen.
  • Open your arms to change, stretch yourself, and leap out of your comfort zone.
  • Be sincerely grateful for those who have faith in your talents and abilities.
  • Never quit and say it’s not possible.
  • Look to your inner guidance, know your capabilities and learn to trust your instincts.
  • There is always choice. Live your life the way you choose overcoming the challenges that arise. You are strong!
  • Believe in yourself and trust your decisions.
  • Find your own voice to discover the inner confidence within you.
  • Stay positive and think of the wonderful qualities you have.
  • Be in the moment now. Have a one day at a time approach to help bring you clarity instead of a feeling of overwhelm. Some things will work out without you having to do anything.   Say out loud or journal “all is well”.
  • Open up to the world and express what is inside your heart.
  • Live your life knowing you do your best. Your best is always enough!

We all have challenges in life. It’s good to remember the key to happiness is how we handle these challenges. Messages and lessons are everywhere and can be given at any time. What will you do with them when they come around? Will you live in fear or jump at the chance to believe in you like no one else can? Don’t wait; you must take action even when it’s a bit scary. Move forward despite what others may think, say, or do. Be open to growing your belief by expressing your thoughts and feelings from your heart. Our brains can sometime get in the way and keep us from what we desire the most. Act with confidence. Live your life as if you know you will succeed and you will find that it is impossible to fail. Choose to believe something good will happen and become determined to look at things in a positive light. Be yourself; the strong, powerful, courageous YOU that you are. Trust yourself and dream big! Never give up.  Believe in YOU!
