Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations

More work and effort you put into something, more and better results you get back. When you show universe that you want something badly, you will be rewarded. There will be difficulties and obstacles on your way, but if you remain focused and you keep working on your dreams, they will come true eventually. 

 

I still remember dreaming about visiting and living in beautiful destinations all over the globe when I was little. I was born into loving but not so much adventurous or rich family. My mum would do anything for me, but she never really understood my passion for traveling. She always did her best to give me everything I needed and she always tried to make me happy. She would take me on my first vacations, to finally visit sea sides. She would pay for my school trips and send me off for adventures with my Girl Scout group. She would always take me skiing in winters and cycling in summers. My dad was a keen cyclist and we would spend whole spring, summer and autumn on our bicycles. We would visit castles, swim in lakes and explore mountains. I was one happy kid.

 

 

But when I grew older I suddenly started to feel like I needed something more. I wanted to see more, visit more countries, meet more people, do more things, have less stuff, live freer life and be even happier. I wanted to live different life than my parents. I wanted to live stress free, adventurous, happy life. I left my home and started living in foreign country. It was scary and difficult at first. My mum was devastated that I left home and I was facing various difficulties in new country. The beginning were not easy, but it all worked out eventually. My life changed drastically and I am a new person now. Even though the change did not happen over night, it was a long process. It took me seven years to get where I am now. But I loved every moment of it.

 

I had to overcome my own set backs to get where I am, but it was all worth it. I am happy for what I have achieved during those seven years. I have been doing what I love with people I love. I have seen incredible places and met amazing people. And there is much more to come my way because I have not given up. 

 

So if you have any dream, do not give up, do your best, go for it and be persistent. Everything you desire will come your way, if you really want it and you are willing to fight for it.

Your happiness depends on you

 

The degree of everyone’s happiness depends on everyone’s attitude to own life. As well as you create your life by everything you do, think and believe, you also create and influence your own happiness by your attitude to your life events – both those good and bad ones. We all experience happy moments in our lives. Sadly, we all experience sad moments too. However, the outcome always depends on you. You either let the happenings ruin your day, week, year and maybe even your whole life … or … you take it as it is, you cope and you move on without hard feelings. You can either keep reminding yourself of the bad times and suffer all over again and again and again … or … you can move on, start focusing on the good things and live a happy life.

 

We all make our own choices. There is no-one else to be blamed for our mistakes as there is no-one else to be rewarded for our hard work and achievements. So if you are not happy with your life as it is now, do something to change it. Go out there and explore your opportunities, find out what your true desires are and what makes you truly happy. Start focusing on things that make sense to you, that make you smile every day, that allow you to live your life fully and up to your standard. There is not enough time to be worried and miserable. Replace things, places and people that make you feel bad with positive alternatives that always make you feel at ease and happy.

 

The purpose of our lives is to fulfill our full potential, live abundant lives, be happy and help others. There is enough good for everyone. We have only been taught and conditioned to think otherwise. Our history might have been harsh but our presence and future is in our hands. We are here to create better tomorrow for ourselves and for our children. Our lives are flexible, they respond to our behavior, believes and feelings. Whatever we do, think and believe reflects in our presence and future. Whatever we decide our lives to be like, we will get just that. You can change your life any minute. You just need to start acting on your decision and working for better tomorrow.

Who is your hero?

Do you have your hero, your role model? Who is that? Is it someone you know personally or maybe some celebrity? Is it a sportsman, businessman, politician, actor, singer or maybe your friend, family member or your neighbor? Is your hero still alive or is it someone who already passed away? Is it someone from recent times or from distant history?

 

 

Matthew McConaughey gave an amazing speech at the 86th Oscars® in 2014. For him his hero is himself ten years from now. Each and every day he chases himself ten years from that moment. He will never become that person – the hero, he will chase him forever. And forever he will be determined to become better every day.

 

Where do you see yourself in ten years? What is your dream life in ten years time? Can you be your own hero? Can you chase your own perfect life? Do you have clear vision of your dream life? Are you worth your admiration? Are your goals high enough to motivate you  now? Are you chasing the right hero? If not, become it. Anything can happen. Make it happen. Become your own hero. Do what it takes to have what you wish.

 

You create your life. So why could not you create your own hero – yourself? Create your perfect self. Become the person you will admire forever. Become the person who you will be proud of. Become the person who will alway push you to do more, to be better, to be more successful, to take the action.

 

You might not be there where you want to be. You might doubt yourself. All you need to do is to change your frame of thinking. You need to realize that you are capable of miraculous things and that all happiness of the world and success and love belong to you as well as to anybody else. You just need to realize that you are worth it all and that you will get it once you ask for it. Celebrate yourself, love yourself, have visions and goals, plan on how to make them come true, take action and become the person you desire – become your hero.

Find your why

Do you ever wonder what is the power, the secret behind someone else’s success? Do you wonder why some people are successful and others are not? Do you wonder what makes and motivates successful people to achieve their goals? What is it that keeps them going? What do they know or have to manage to get what they want? What is the secret you need to know in order to become whoever you want to be, too? What do they know that you don’t? 

 

 

We have aspirations and dreams and strive to live exciting and beneficial lives. We tend to give our lives meaning. We need to know why we do things we do. We search for purpose in our lives. But what we often don’t realize is that this is the big secret to success. You need to find your why! You need to know why you want to achieve what you say you want to achieve. You need to know why it is that you want what you want. You need to know why you decided to go the way you go. 

 

Your why is the cornerstone of your efforts. It is the cornerstone of your journey to success. Vision, plan, your hard work, determination and consistency are your tools. These are essential to make your dream, your why, come true. You need to have and use these to achieve your dream destination. But without your why, your tools will not get you anywhere. 

 

It is your job to find your why. It might not be easy and it might take some time. But if you start looking for it, it will come to you. What is life without a purpose? It is an empty space without joy and without reaching your own potential. Don’t let yourself live an empty life. Find your purpose, find your why and start working on it.

Choose the right reality

Reality is a state of things and being as they actually are and exist. We live real lives and we rely on real things. We tend to be skeptical to supernatural phenomenons. Human history was filled with supernatural beliefs and superstitions. People believed in Gods and explained everything new and strange to them as God’s work. However, with arising scientific discoveries and expansion of rational reasoning human kind became vastly skeptical to supernatural occurrences and became reliant on reality and reason.

 

 

For masses the development meant loss of beliefs and hopes in something more – something that we cannot explain by reason. We lost our hope in the power which determines our lives and life chances. We believe in science and physical evidence of things and happenings. We are taught in schools to rely on our capacity of reason and logical thinking. But our schooling systems neglect the emotional and self development elements in our education. They teach us what they want us to become. They offer no or very limited space for self expression. They narrow our thinking to scientific and factual kind. Our imagination, faith and open mindedness are limited though.

 

Of course, there are many people who are religious and they have their faith. They believe there is something bigger than us that can control or influence our lives. There are many forms of beliefs and they all come with different influences. However, it is not just about religious beliefs. There are scientists who believe and proved that universe is a massive power system that works based on vibrations and various universal laws, like the Law of Attraction.

 

These scientists have conducted various researches proving that our past, presence and future interact with each other and influence each other and that our decisions reflect in all three of them. We create our own reality and we get to choose which reality we want to live. There is always more possible realities ready for us based on our past and present decisions and these are presented in forms of opportunities and it’s up to us to choose which way, thus which reality, we want to go and live.

 

There are people who believe in destiny and that their lives and destinies have been set by God and cannot be altered. They believe that what they live has been created for them and they have to take whatever is given to them. For example, if they become unemployed, they believe it was supposed to happen because it was God’s will. There are people who reject any supernatural or spiritual forms of influence in their lives and they only rely on their reason and merely see their lives as summary of occurrences that can be explained by reason – occurrences that logically follow each other. For instance, if they become unemployed, they explain it as a result of bad economy, horrible boss, lack of work opportunities, … you name it. And there are people who believe in power of their thoughts and universal laws. They know that if they learn how to communicate with universe, they will get anything they ask for. They know that they themselves choose their realities and whatever happens in their lives. For example, if they become unemployed, they know it was because they wished better employment for themselves and they needed to become available first. They immediately open up to new opportunities and become ready for what will be coming their way.

 

It is all up to you. You can always make change. You can always decide what you really want in your life. You can live the way you have always lived or you can do your research and start living in more controlled and satisfactory way. You can choose your future. You can choose what will come your way.

Swim upstream

Comformity is rooted in our subconscious minds. We blindly desire to blend in and become just like everybody else. We want a spouse, a house, kids, a career, a good car, a great holiday once or twice a year, a good salary and a promise of sufficient retirement rent.

 

 

Yet, the greatest stories and inventions of man kind come from being different, being special, wanting more, having ambitions, striving for advancements in life and desire of becoming someone. What world would we live in, if we all only strived for conformity and basic needs satisfaction. We would still be living in caves hunting mammoths.

 

Being different makes whole society adjust to new ways of living. It advances humanity. It pushes us forward. When Henry Ford first introduced his cars, people ridiculed him. They believed that his invention was just a silly idea and that people would ride horses forever. The opposite is true nowadays. The list of examples goes on and on. But pushing boundaries of social approval is not just about inventions.

 

Millions upon millions of individuals have been made to conform or punished for their failure to do so. This has been a truth since the dawn of our civilization. Rulers ruled their clans, territories and kingdoms, and others had to obey. Those who did not, were punished. People have been killing each other because of their religions. During the World War II millions of people were killed because they did not meet Nazi’s criteria. Today, people are harassed and ridiculed because of their sexuality, religion, money situation, image, even style of clothing, …. and the list goes on and on.

 

Injustice has been happing to people over centuries and thousands of years. However, man kind learnt that development is inevitable and that diversity is a positive and not negative aspect of our lives. Learning about other cultures and accepting people of different religion beliefs and individuals of different sexualities, skin colors, abilities and interests make our development possible.

 

Every single one of us is slightly or vastly different to everybody else. So please let’s be a little bit more understanding and open every day. This is a beautiful world full of interesting people and you can find something nice or interesting about single one of them. And do not forget to be yourself. Do not blend in. Show world who you truly are. Diversity is beautiful.

Today is the day

Do you ever tell yourself that right now is not the right time … that you have to wait on better circumstances, better timing, better people, better equipment, better skills, … ? Why is it so? Why do we tend to believe that there is always something and someone better than what we have and who we are? How can we be so certain that we are not enough and that we are not equipped well enough to gain any goal we set for ourselves? Resources are inexhaustible. We can do anything at any time and anywhere we set for yourselves. Even if we do not have what we need for our success, we can get it. If we ask for it, we will get anything we want. If we open up our minds and look out for opportunities that are given to us, we will succeed. Our only limitation is ourselves. Only our own small mindedness can prevent us from getting anywhere and anything we want. 

 

 

Once your mind is set on a certain goal, act on it. Act first and then aim. Boldness will carry you towards your dream destination. Remember that there is no ‘perfect time’, but any time is perfect. Once you know what your deepest desire is, go get it. There is no reason why you could not get where you want to be. You deserve the best. You deserve to be happy. You deserve to fulfill your potential. You just have to want it. And you have to want it a lot. You have to want it so much that you dream about it, you visualize yourself there where you want to be, you live your dream already, you feel its presence in your today’s life, and you know that you deserve it and you know that it is what you have. Then go and act upon your desire. Even if you only do a little action today, it can mean a huge jump for you in future. You may be puzzled and not sure what to do. You may think that there is no way for you to manage it. But do not get fooled. You can do anything. Just go for it. Start small and progress higher. Start doing your research and see what your options are. If you truly want it, you will find your ways to attain it. 

 

Beginning might be harsh, but have your goals still on top of your mind and you will get through it. There is nothing sweeter in your life than getting that which you wish, living your dream life. Remember to act on your dreams. Do not wait for tomorrow, next month, next year … and start acting now. There are never going to be just the perfect conditions – you will always be working long hours, have families, be in love, be traveling or going through some kind of crisis. So start today. Stop wasting your precious time and make your life the best life.

Be open to new opportunities

How many times have you wondered ‘What could have happened if I only …’ – fill in the gap with whatever relates to you. Probably every one of us have a regret or two. Some of us have even more. We were taught how to live our lives and we were conditioned into having certain aspirations in our lives. Our societies have been developing in specific notions for centuries and we have been going with the flow unaware of what has been going on behind the scenes. The truth is that minority rules majority. Ninety percent of all wealth belongs to ten percent of all population. And ninety percent of population works for those wealthy ten percent of ‘rulers’.

 

 

Why is it so then? It is because those ten percent of population discovered what they really wanted in their lives and decided to get it no matter what it takes. They worked hard to get what belongs to them. They stepped out of their comfort zones and set themselves free from the main stream way of living. They had their dreams and they acted on them. They actively looked for opportunities and worked their asses of to get where they are. They continue to educate themselves and they always look for new approaches and strategies to make more money and more importantly to retain them. They keep working less and making more money because they elevate their business systems and they have others work for them. They do their business in smart and efficient way. Anything they do, they do it to 100% and they still look for innovation.

 

What I am trying to say here is that there are countless opportunities for every single one of us. We just have to be open to them and once we come across them, start acting on them. We need to become more consciously aware of our living conditions and the way we address our lives. We need to appreciate our lives and everything we have. But we need to start looking for more, for something that will make us truly happy. We need to set our goals and create plans on how to attain them. We need to look out for opportunities that will take us closer to our dream destination.

 

Love your life and make it the best life possible.

A book a day keeps poverty away

In modern world where there are countless media, new technologies and various distractions we tend to forget about books and learning from other sources than mass media and mainstream information channels. We tend to focus on the visual and to neglect the written content. When looking for answers we run a couple of internet searches and quickly skim through the content. While doing so, we often forget to focus on the context though. We look for specific answers for our specific questions, just to make our search as quick as possible.

 

 

Don’t get me wrong, I love having all the answers to my questions ready for me and accessible by a couple of quick web searches. But there is a whole lot of value in reading books and journals and a whole range of educational and self-development materials. There is so much more value in reading a whole piece of content than in just getting the answers you are looking for. By reading the whole bit, you happen to find more answers, explanations, revelations, tips, hacks, inspiration and entertainment.

 

There are countless master pieces out there that you can learn from. There are numerous resources for any topic you pick. The history of book and journal writing is long and there are masses of quality and interesting information out there. Don’t limit yourself to mainstream resources and mass media that only share specific pieces of information with you. Broaden your viewpoint, refresh your imagination and expand your general knowledge. More context you know easier you can decide what is best for you.

 

I don’t mean that you should know every single bit of everything that was/has been/is going on, but try to focus on the field of your interest. As well as you follow new trends and opportunities, learn from past strategies and inventions and explanations. Compare what used to work back then and what is happening now. Find the best compromise, the best solution for yourself. Make decisions based on your knowledge instead of on what others tell you to do. Rely on your know how.

Listen to your intuition

Reason is a big part of our lives. We are brought up to reason things and to understand them. We are taught to think twice and to act once. We are taught to think before we act. We need things to make sense. We rely on our ability to understand and we get uncomfortable when we do not get things. Over centuries we slowly forgot to rely on our intuition. We neglect it and we are not too keen on listening to it. Often we do not trust our intuition and we consider it misleading. We put reason over intuition.

 

 

What is this intuition then? Intuition is your ability to understand things based on your instincts, without you consciously reasoning them. Our instincts were designed to protect us, to keep us safe from various dangers. Our instincts have been evolving over the time in accordance to our own development and changing nature of dangerous we have been facing.

 

Nowadays, most people are not in direct danger of losing their lives every single day due to various predators, extreme weather conditions or lack of food. Today, most of us face different dangers and difficulties. These may vary from lack of education or expertise, over lack of social inclusion, to work overload or powerful competition. People adapt to their environment and thus even to changing nature of setbacks and dangers. Many professionals develop instincts related to their profession that protect them from losses and enable them to get big achievements in their field. Non-professionals also develop instincts related to their life situations. Bidders develop instincts for bidding. Criminals develop instincts to stay away out of prison. Nurses develop instincts for the right care. And the list goes on and on.

 

Instincts and intuition are important parts of our lives and our decision making processes. Reason is essential for our everyday tasks and our overall development. But we must not forget to pay attention to our inborn strength – our natural equipment that has been keeping us safe and sound over thousands of years. Whenever your reason fails you, sit down, relax and listen to your inner self. Listen to your wild yourself. Listen to your natural you. Your instincts are right. Sometimes your reason will not agree with your intuition but that is ok. Reason is powerful but it is not almighty. After all, reason is a summary of what you have learnt and collected over years. You cannot fail yourself. Give yourself a chance.
