Archive for the ‘self improvement’ Category

A little over a month ago, I did a post about the nature of personal energy (“Some Things Fill Your Bucket”) – about how some people and things fill your bucket and how some drain it dry.

I invited you to take a look at your bucket and decide whether it was empty or full, and how much; and then to decide what that was telling you about the life you’re living now

That’s important, you know. When you’re burning the candle at both ends and draining your bucket to the dregs, you end up burnt out. That makes it a lot more difficult to draw positive things into your life and leaves room for depression to creep in.

I saw a meme the other day that gave me more input into this.

Copy of Fotolia_44996157_M “The problem with both  the folks that think the  glass is half empty and  the ones that think the  glass is half full is that  they’re both missing the  point…

The glass is re-fillable.”

Brilliant!

It’s important to think about what’s in our lives that drains our buckets and limit our exposure to it, but it’s also important to think about what we can do to refill our buckets for ourselves, no matter what else is going on around us

So let look at some ways to fill our buckets…

Catch you soon

They say that happiness and a positive attitude have many benefits for us in body , mind and spirit. It  boosts the immune system, drops our blood pressure, makes us mentally more flexible and resilient, builds creativity and alertness and decreases the chances of illness or injury.

At that point, the question is are you in touch with what truly brings you joy?

And do you celebrate it?…

Let’s all do the dance of joy!

Friday, Saturday and Sunday last, Starwolf and I had one last whirlwind weekend  at the Changing Times, Changing Worlds convention as speakers, panelists, and general creators of interesting events , as well as my stint as a visiting author.

We’ve not only seen the end of the conference, but also the end of one of the busy periods in our business.

I’m still writing and we’ve got the holiday preparations to do, but overall things are somewhat slowed down from the frantic pace that it’s had for the last few months.

It’s kinda like the cycles of the year. The world itself has periods of new beginnings, growth, frantic activity and harvest, as well as more quiet times for peace and introspection.

It’s time to take a deep breath and to rest, of course. But it’s also time to think about what we’re going to do next.

This is the time to think about what events we wish to appear at next year. This is the time to think about what classes we want to  teach next at shops and conventions like Changing Times, Changing Worlds. This is the time to mull over the topic of the book that I will write next year, and start doing a little research.

We’re beginning to think about this.

And what about you? As we approach the winter, when we all gather inside and nest, what are you planning? What great deeds await you in your future?

Awhiles back, I was talking about our beliefs. How our beliefs tend to shape the nature of reality around us, for good or ill. How that’s why it’s a good reason to cultivate a more positive mindset, because it tends to manifest a more positive world.

All well and good.

Have you ever noticed though, when you start on any program of improving your own life, how things will go on along well for a while, and then suddenly, usually without warning, obstacles, barriers and challenges to your program start to crop up?

Unexpected commitments. People in need. Illness. Exhaustion.

And you feel like giving up. Maybe just for a while, until you can settle these things that are complicating your life.

This is the moment of Truth…

Sometimes, you will have to stop what you’re doing to straighten things out; but many times, these obstacles and barriers and challenges are only sent to strengthen your resolve, to test your commitment to your dreams and to your new path…

Sometimes, as I said, you may have to stop temporarily. Many times, though, the right thing is to use this time to build energetic muscle – to keep going, even though the going’s hard and even if you need to go at a slower pace

Conan the Barbarian said “That which does not kill me, makes me stronger”

And it’s worth finding the barbarian in you at these times

We’ve talked about how self talk ,whether helpful or destructive,can build your beliefs. Now let’s talk about how the talk of the people around us can build our internal programming.

There are lots of different people in the world, and lots of different beliefs to go with them.

And they’re all ready to share them with you.

Some will want to teach you achievement, and some caution or fear. Some are insightful, some ignorant. Some will energize you, some drain you.  Some will teach you things that are excellent for them but don’t work at all for you.
Some will teach you things that help you be your best, and some will teach you things that limit you.

And most of them will share whatever it is that they believe under the impression that they are being helpful. Whether they actually are or not.

And all of those beliefs (even the ones that contradict each other) will go right into your subconscious if  you let them.

It’s important to examine the belief patterns that are offered to you. To choose the ones that work for who you are, and let the rest of them go. And to spend more time with the folks who energize you and support you in being more perfectly, joyously you, as opposed to the ones who want to make you over into someone else or crush your dreams ( even with the best of intentions).

Know who you are. Know who is part of your tribe. And let them teach you what you need to know about  in life
