No Pressure Guide to Happiness

The path to greatness is a road we all must travel ourselves.

The demands we place on ourselves will determine our final outcome, our final result. Are you placing the right demands on yourself? or are you being to demanding?

There’s so much pressure this day in age. Not only does the pressure come from our peers but it comes from all of society, all of culture. It’s ironic how we have it better than any civilization has before us yet we struggle more-so than ever before.

The demands we place on ourselves are killing us rather than actually helping us grow.

What pressures are you putting on yourself?

Are you pressuring yourself so much that the stress and anxiety consumes you?

Don’t be so hard on yourself, we all struggle.

Do you live in a sea of hopelessness or is everyday something new? a new day to conquer? a new day to win? a new day to be all that you can be in all that is?

Now-a-days everyone struggles and it seems no one knows why.

The truth seems obvious yet we all live in our own world’s of ignorance. We deny the truth as a means to protect ourselves, ultimately hurting us and leading us towards our bitter end.

5 Major Influences on Well-Being

Influence #1 – Culture

We live in a party culture, negative influences are everywhere. From the moment we wake up to the moment we go to bed we are bombarded with endless messages.

What kind of art do you part-take in? What kind of movies? music? Why do you listen to this type of music? do you listen because you love the music itself or do you listen to gain popularity? to fit in? What kind of habits to you part-take in? do you abuse subtances? drugs? alcohol? food?

Do any of these things actually make me feel good about myself? Will any of these things make me feel better?

There’s good and bad in everything, choose to take pride in acknowledging the good in all things. Seek out good, find ways to make good known.

Do you believe in God? I do. I’m not saying its a pre-requisite to healing but it does help to alleviate depression and anxiety to know someone is looking out for you. It’s also relieving to think our souls are eternal.

See I think of the good as God. Seek out God.

When people channel good from themselves, through themselves unto others this is the act of God. The act of a higher power and the act of a deeper understanding.

Do you seek out Good/God in others?


Influence # 2 – Society

A big part of our conditioning as humans is due to our surrounding environment. What is your surrounding environment like? Are the people around you toxic substance abusers or are they free from attachment, warm and supportive?

There’s so much pressure in society now-a-days from media, advertisers and those around us that most people have formed unrealistic expectations in their daily lives. It’s an odd realization but its safe to say most people live in denial of the truth to some regard.

Do you live in denial of the truth? are you happy?

Do you have control of your health? your life?

Do you live in denial from the truth? Do you act like your addictive habits aren’t so harmful? Do you act like you can live forever? like you’re invincible? like you can eat anything you want and get away with it?

Hard work pays off, and that’s that. There’s nothing more to it. Your disciplines and self-control will determine your levels of happiness.

What controls your life? the external or the internal?

Denial is putting the blame on anything other than yourself. Sure we all come into this world with different troubles than one another but its our responsibility as individuals to vanquish our demons and whatever plagues us. As humans we all need to build courage and face our fears or we forever live a life of discontent and discomfort.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it, that’s where most people get lost. Reach out to someone close or find an institution near you that could possibly help you with some counseling. We all need therapy and it doesn’t hurt to start helping ourselves. If someone you know is experiencing these kind of problems let them know you have a waiting ear and a supportive frame of mind. If their problems exude anything beyond what you’re capable of discussing encourage them to reach out.

Influence # 3 – Psychology

So culture says “abuse this” while society says “be accomplished“, the psychological aspect becomes tormenting as we get stuck in-between.

Are your thoughts impulsive? bad? negative? do you feel toxic? This is more common than you’d think now-a-days.

Have you ever come across the law of attraction? the idea, you become what you think about most?

Making smart choices means being a smart thinker, being a smart thinker means monitoring your thoughts. Do you’re thoughts generate negativity? positivity?

We create the worlds we live in with our words. Believe it or not the thoughts you think today (if given enough substance) will become tomorrow’s beliefs. So what are you thinking today that’s creating tomorrow’s anxiety? creating tomorrow’s opportunities?

The truth is 9 of 10 things you worry about will never happen and the 10 things that did happen, 9 of them you didn’t worry about. Stop worrying. Stop draining yourself psychologically.

It’s okay to have bad thoughts, fact of the matter is we all have them. The important factor is not to act on them or let them consume you. Fight your way to establish good thoughts, good beliefs.

Consider this thought: “I believe in the good things coming” – A lyric by Nahko Bear’s Black as the Night

What a beautiful thought.

Whether we believe we can or we believe we can’t we are usually right. Find messages that lift you up, work towards your faith.

Influence # 4 – Habits

What a better way to build positive thoughts than actually acting on well-being.

CONSIDER THIS: Your levels of healthiness and wellbeing are determined by your ability to act in ways that are whole in terms of mental/emotional, physical and social health. 

Are you healthy? do you have a healthy body? a healthy mind? Do you do the things you have to do? or do you escape and retreat as an act of denial from what is?

Don’t let stress consume you, accept the moment for what it is and work on being present with the moment.

Notice the cycle for change:

  • Pre-contemplation – being unaware.
  • Contemplation – planning for action.
  • Action – following the path set forth.
  • Maintenance – holding true.

Don’t get stuck overthinking you can’t always think your way out of a bad situation. Thinking is important when it comes to planning but without consistent action thinking is worthless. Work to get to point of maintaining your healthy habits, work one habit at a time until they become deeply engrained routines.

Influence # 5 – Biology

Okay so maybe we’ve come to terms with society and culture’s influence, maybe we’ve established good habits and have redirected our thinking patterns. Maybe something still feels off and we keep falling back into our destructive patterns?

Some of us are born with pre-dispositions which opens our body to be susceptible to illnesses. Unfortunately there’s no way around it. Some of us need medication in order to feel whole, don’t fight it if that’s you. Of course, always talk to a doctor before taking any prescription drugs.

How to start creating a healthy life.


  1. Start taking responsibility and control for your life.
  2. Start being grateful, be happy regardless of whatever circumstance.
  3. Love yourself unconditionally, we all make mistakes and at times look foolish.

There’s so much wisdom to gather and to share. Let your light live on in others. Work to reach new heights of being then spread the lessons you’ve learnt with those who value your word.

Start making healthy choices. Stop accumulating unnecessary risks whether financially, socially or in terms of your health. Start living to prevent risk, making wise choices.

A healthy body means a healthy mind and a healthy mind makes smart decisions.

Holistic Healing

In terms of holistic healing we can always be smarter with what we put in our bodies. Most people don’t focus on a well-balanced diet so they become weak. When we listen to our bodies and give them what they need we can destroy pathways to negativity. Building stronger connections with ourselves and mother earth based on what we put in our body is important to establish that mind-body connection.

Becoming Self-Aware

As individuals we must learn to give time to our concealed thoughts. Work to understand your feeling and emotions. We can’t always get our emotions completely on our side but with practice we can influence them in a way where they no longer carry so much weight into the situation.

The Health Triangle
Balancing Happiness and Creating Success

When it comes to being a whole happy person there are 3 aspects that determine our potential levels of success and well-being.

  • Physical Health
  • Social Health
  • Mental/Emotional Health

When all pillars are strong we are most likely to act fully and whole, becoming our best selves. When one pillar is missing or lacking, just as a tripod would, the balance shifts sometimes to the point where we tumble over destroying the other two pillars.

So how can we focus on improving these pillars?


Focus on the message being said, the tone in which you say it and how it’s interpreted by others. Work on making good connections with others. Work on being assertive and removing/distancing yourself from toxic influences.

Focus on building good character. Focus on things that create intrinsic value, things that benefit the greater good, work on your trustworthiness, your integrity, your word.

Be compassionate, warm, kind and supportive towards others. Not everyone wants to hear about how they can improve sometimes people just need to be heard.

Work on becoming the best listener you can be.

When it comes down to it the most important thing sometimes is having someone to turn to in times of distress.


Start now. Start taking charge of your health, your muscles your joints. Treat your body as a temple. Focus on nutrition and improving your physical health. Dedicate minimum 30 minutes a day to physical activity, you won’t regret it.

30 Minutes is enough to influence big change especially if you’re doing it consistently.

If you’re not the most physically inclined focus on little wins until you can accomplish greater feats; the goal being to always challenge yourself.


Are you taking time for “me” days? or do you spend every waking moment working, plugging away?

Stress management is something we all need to determine for ourselves, therapy can come in many forms. Sometimes we need to abide by one therapy to get to the next, each having their own lessons and way of profoundly creating transformational change.

So what do you find value in? how do you de-stress? re-charge your batteries?

You have greatness within you, the question I ask now: are you up to the challenge to unleash it?

Thank you to all my readers! I wish you all the best on your endeavors. Don’t give up on yourself. Always get back up no matter how many times you fall down. You may not know me personally but I can tell you that my life is a testimony that you can rise above the suffering. Don’t let your current situation define you, you are stronger than you’ll ever know.

4 Aspects to Obtaining Higher Consciousness

What is consciousness?

Consciousness is the state of being awake and aware to one’s surroundings.


What does it mean to live unconsciously?

The unconscious mind is a shadow of the “real” mind it’s not identifiable less flexible, complex, controlling, deliberative and action-oriented than its counterpart (the conscious mind).

– Paraphrased from

To live unconsciously is to act on the emotions we don’t understand, when we do this we give away our power and life-energy acting out of routine, patterns and old conditioning.

We tend to live according to our “current feeling” rather than seeing life as it is and working towards the bigger picture.


What is higher consciousness?

Higher consciousness is the consciousness of a higher self, transcendental reality or God. It is “the part of the human being that is capable of transcending animal instincts.

– Excerpt from


How do we influence higher consciousness?

We can influence higher consciousness by understanding ourselves and our place in time and space. We must become aware of all the conditional patterns that have influenced our behavior up until this point.

We need to learn discipline and control in order to train the mind and body to abide to our higher self.

To reach a higher consciousness we need to transcend the current circumstances… we need to stop living through the senses, stop living through emotion and rather live through our objective intellect and spiritual needs.


How do you transcend your current circumstances?

We transcend our current circumstanced through a process of self-actualization.

Through understanding ourselves fully, spiritually and physically we are better able to see clearly and better able to work along side the laws of nature rather than against them.


What is the process of self-actualization?

We can build awareness by challenging our trials and tribulations with a can-do attitude, only through giving yourself fully can we learn best from experience. Knowledge is power and knowing thyself is the beginning of all wisdom.


How do we begin the process of self-actualization?

We begin by realizing we’re human just like everyone else. We must also realize the world is full of chaos and we can’t always make sense of everything; we need to learn to control what we can and to let go of what we can’t.

The process of self-actualization begins the moment we accept ourselves as who we are and begin to release the negativity that has plagued us up until this point in time.

The good and the bad of the past have come together to make this very moment in time, accept it and give in to the moment. Focus on creating memorable moments so tomorrow’s moment can be harvested better than today’s.

The process begins when we start taking initiative and responsibility for the direction of our lives.


I still don’t know where to begin, where do I start?

Start by determining what it is you truly want in life if money was no object. Where would your soul guide you if you weren’t tied down by your cash resources?

Okay, I determined what I want… but I still haven’t figured myself out…

Honestly dreams are dreams and can sometimes becoming true realizations but until we are able to distinguish our deeper reasons for these dreams they will direct us and cause mayhem on our psyche.

One thing we need to truly come to realize within ourselves is life isn’t about the destination, its about the journey. Embrace your journey and you’ll have arrived at your destination. 

Most of us are to focused on the past and future leading us to our biggest flaw; emotional-based thinking. We need to focus on this current moment with our full awareness and continue honoring each moment remaining fully present to grow as individuals.


Understanding the Flaws in Emotional-Based Thinking

Living in a reaction-based consciousness we tend to hold in various emotions simultaneously, these emotions identify themselves when we feel threatened. Most of the time when we get into this defensive state we can only identify ourselves with the strongest emotion out of the bunch, usually anger or sadness.

We are “unconscious” to our emotional thinking. When we become emotional it’s not an instance of one emotion becoming to strong to contain, it’s more of an instance of how our various emotions react with one another.

More often then not we’re feeling more than one emotion at a time and this can becoming confusing to us on the conscious level, which causes us to react at times on surface level and not fully understanding why.

Higher consciousness begins with discipline first and foremost.

Discipline is everything; the road to liberation is a dogfight that will knock you down time after time again… not everyone will be able to live and find what is known as “Christ consciousness” some of us live on low levels, others on high ones.

The frequency in which we “be” and frequently reside in will determine our circumstances, how we handle them and how they introspectively change us.

Only through a commitment of excellence are we able to find our own strongest levels achieving clarity and true direction.


Overcoming Subjectivity

To live in higher consciousness we must fight to see the objective truth. There is a lot of man-made deception with the intent on keeping humankind focused on basic needs.

Keeping the mass population focused on these lower level needs takes the attention away from things that could truly benefit our nature and overall existence.


Personal Growth and the Road to Achievement

Read, read, and read… there’s so much to understand about human nature and existence itself. Anyone who knows anything knows there’s always more to learn.

Find a way that you work on yourself so that you can add value to others. Find your beliefs and allow others to find theirs even if ideas may vary from your own; we all need to come to our own realizations and need to express ourselves without fear of being judged.

Start learning about personal development, check out business gurus like Brian Tracy, Jim Rohn, Earl Nightingale and Chris Widener, listen to audio books, podcasts or if you don’t have many books google for PDFs versions of whatever it is you’re interested in; find anything that inspires you and let it do its thing.


4 Key Aspects of Higher Consciousness

Thinking outside of the box, outside of labels and outside of predetermined patterns.

Transcendentalism – the belief that man is at his best when independent, and not part of organized religion or politics. To discover the nature of reality by investigating the process of thought rather than the objects of sense experience.

– Definition from

Don’t cling to strongly to one idea, we are flawed thinkers and constantly make breakthroughs with new paradigm shifts. What you believe at this very moment may not be exactly what you believe in the future so don’t criticize others because before you know it you’ve become a hypocrite yourself. We all make mistakes and need to embrace the inner journey, don’t force others, focus on what you can control.

Commitment, initiative, releasing the negative and influencing the positive.

We feel lost or happy usually based on the extent of control we have over our own lives. Choosing to live through our senses typically comes with consequences physical in nature such as depleting our resources that could have been allocated to a better cause.

Living through senses creates the cycle of dependency and inner struggle which creates more conflict and barriers to happiness.

When we’re in this state of low self-esteem we tend to attract others in the same state which can create a faulty support system where everyone likes to see each other lose. With this feeling of lesser worth and inferiority we tend to feel envious and defeated when others mention their accomplishments. As a unconscious or conscious manipulative act using peer pressure and our influence we tend to hold people in the same position; we like change as long as it doesn’t affect us to much.

Finding silence, transcending energy through meditation, prayer or reflection.

A big part of finding silence is accepting our thoughts and ourselves as we are. We are all that we are, it is all that it is and if it’s meant to be it’ll be.

We must see life and reality not as something that happens to us but something that happens through us, and how we react will spawn and re-spawn through out our lives.

Choose to find your calmness. Choose to give time to your concealed thoughts, choose to see your thoughts but to realize you are not your mind but an eternal consciousness that cannot be scientifically shown as existing within the human body.

We are not trapped by our thoughts. What we generally do, however, is create thoughts that trap us.” Joshua David Stone

Those who carry the biggest burden have the greatest message with the greatest influence.

Choose to live life with a sense of passion, determine your values/principles and address what truly matters.

Live according to the greater good and praise all who see worth in you. Choose to add value to others, aim to ignite the ascension of others spiritually, and they will come back ten times stronger to influence you in your own endeavors.

Focus on good karma, do unto others as you wish to be treated yourself… choose to see the good and help people grow.

Reaching higher consciousness isn’t easy, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth it. We all must find our own virtues to happiness, all I ask is we all do our best to encourage positive change; peace, love and positivity.

10 Inner Dimensions of Self-Worth

Many of us look outside ourselves with intent on finding things that will make us happy. Sadly this isn’t where true happiness resides; happiness comes from within not “without”. If you’re not happy with yourself in your current circumstances then nothing will make you happy until you flip the switch and decide to be happy with what you’ve got.

Living a selfish life wrecks havoc on our self-esteem and our self-worth; although our esteem may be at an all time low this doesn’t mean it can’t be re-awoken and soar to new heights.

Even if our circumstances are brutal and hard to rise above we must always remember these inner principles to being and improving self-worth:

  1. Strive for better  Each day there are winners and losers, do you consider today a win in the grand scheme of things? Did you step closer to your goals or fall further away?
  2. Push past exhaustion – Just because the elements are not perfect doesn’t mean effort isn’t necessary. Push through doubts, exhaustion and any necessary conflict.
  3. Recognize needs verses wants – Be deliberate with how you utilize your resources. Avoid any vicious cycles of coping with stress, battle your conditions and elicit better (positive) ways to cope.
  4. Recognize workplace success vs. a successful life – Sometimes to have a successful life we must abide by the roles we’ve been given. Don’t squander your opportunities; they may not be ideal but honor each moment with awareness and see where life takes you.
  5. Recognize flawed patterns – Whether these flawed patterns are our negative thinking, over thinking or idolizing material possessions; choose to let go. It is what it is; manage what you’ve been given.
  6. See the good in others – Keep conversations light-hearted, don’t dig into pasts or try to make sense of everything. Validate feelings and give your honest perspective, everyone has a voice that needs to be heard.
  7. See the bigger picture
    a) Everyone wants to belong, everyone is human, and we’re all the same with a few subtle differences. Don’t let differences divide, let differences influence positive change.
    b) Everyone’s got their own problems; running away is never the solution, and not everyone copes well.
  8. Understand we all have bad days – Okay so today wasn’t perfect, that doesn’t mean we have to beat ourselves up. We all have off days but don’t let that discourage you. It’s not easy but try and wake up every morning with a sense of bliss thinking “nothing could be better than it is right now.”
  9. Being the victim is a choice – Attitude is everything. Bring a positive light for all to see but only confide in those who show true loyalty.
  10. Everything happens for a reason – Don’t bask in your failures; mistakes are stepping stones to success. Brush that dust of your shoulder and choose to challenge life.

Ultimately effort is between you and you. If you’re not willing to sacrifice something to get to where you want be honest with yourself. Like stated above “nothing could be better than it is right now”, if you’re not happy with yourself how do you expect to be happy with others and the world around you?


Self-love is everything; don’t forget your worth.

Here’s some age old wisdom: Love yourself and treat others as you wish to be treated.

Embracing the Soul Factor

We’re all destined for great things.. We all have so much potential we refuse and neglect.

We overwork and overconsume to the point we have no energy left to do the things that nourish us soulfully.

So busy plugging away at the day to day duties we quickly forget the importance of nurturing this part of our being.

Why do we put so much focus on the brain and heart but never the soul?

Just cause you don’t see it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

Everything you do has an impact on your soul. You can choose to listen to your inner voice or avoid it completely.

Living through the ego we are ignorant to the concept of the soul. We may think we abide by the soul’s purpose but sooner or later we come to find out we’ve fooled ourselves.

Don’t attach yourself to a piece of knowledge, it is what it is, if its fact and cannot be changed just let it be.

Focus on elements under your control. Take care of your body, it’s a temple for heaven’s sake.

Your body is your passage way to the other elements of being. Don’t be restrained because you’ve neglected movement for so long. Challenge yourself to move and take action.

Build up your endurance gradually.

Don’t worry about having the body of your dreams just worry about having a body that meets the functionality of the soul. Prepare the body so it’s ready for action, ready for whatever stress may arise.

Activities such as something so simple like going for a bike ride can be a joyful experience some people just aren’t able to enjoy.

To think our ancestors walked for days, weeks and even months at a time. We need to be able to endure and persevere and a lot of having the proper mindset comes with being in control of your physical health.

Taking care of your body doesn’t have to be some daunting task, depending on our perspective we can actually make it quite enjoyable.

Taking care of your health isnt about getting a huge pump or having 90% of the blood in our body rushing to our arms, its about being able to physically endure whatever it is that comes our way.

Why does the average joe nowadays have a beer belly and uneven posture?

Most of us have the wrong attitude when it comes to taking care of the body.

We don’t have to spend hours at the gym to have a good health we just have to utilize our muscles to reduce potential muscle atrophy (prevent muscles from weakening over time).

The longer you neglect your health the harder you’ll have to work to get to square one so start becoming accountable.

As long as you have a brain and two feet you can choose your own direction. You’re not a tree.

“If you are willing to do only what’s easy, life will be hard. But if we’re willing to do what’s hard, life will be easy.” T. Harv Eker

W.O.L.F – Warrior of Liberty and Freedom

There are moments of our lives where we feel as though we are in the spotlight… recognition comes, friends, we seem to have all the support we could ever want or need. Then there’s those moments where we’ve fallen. Those moments of struggle where we really need somebody and there’s no one to be found. Sometimes in these moments of struggle we see the true reality which the universe has brought forth.

Through struggle we are able to see on a genuine level who adds true value to your life. Some people are manipulative sociopaths who will try to fool you by any means necessary; not everyone looks to add value to your life, most people are out for themselves looking to get ahead by any means necessary. The truth is most people are superficial and have their own agenda.

Life is short, we’re supposed to be happy but some people need to get off the hamster wheel and realize what’s actually taking place in the grand scheme of things.

On a deep level psychological level people of society’s lives have been predestined. So many people are living according to the invisible script that has been written for them. It’s sad because those who choose to take the “unscripted” path tend to be the one’s who are shunned for their differences.

Those who choose to live the “unscripted” life have a hard road sometimes no one will have faith in one’s vision but the individual has to keep pushing and believing one day will be his day. This is why I classify it as the wolf mentality, life’s tough but we’ve got to be tougher.

Code of the Wolf

Protect your pack,
show no fear,
respect the elder,
teach the young,
lead your companions,
survive each day,
hunt your enemies,
howl to a new tomorrow,
explore the unknown,
adapt to the environment,
demonstrate no weakness,
never back down
and leave your mark.

Raphael Vieira

Why is the W.O.L.F classified as the black sheep of society?

Not only does the wolf have to establish values important to him and his pack but the wolf also has to be strong, fearless and never back down in the face of challenge.

The wolf mentality builds a strong positive presence leaving others in awe and wonder; a fierce mentality can be intimidating to those who live according to life’s predestined script.wolf 4

You know you’re doing it right if people begin hating you for no reason what-so-ever. People will begin questioning your story, your path, and your morals that got you to where you are now; that’s life. There’s always going to be naysayers and people who doubt but it’s up to you to determine your course and sometimes that means moving against the current.

Those who refuse to take action will make excuses and build reasoning for those who managed to accomplish what it was they set their mind to. Let people rationalize their failures all they want, don’t let it affect your being.

People always have their own two-cents when it comes to someone else’s progress, most people will minimize the transformational efforts from a place of envy and hate. Misery loves company and these people will say anything to keep you where you are at this very moment. They don’t want you to improve it’s of no benefit to them. Your improvement only makes them feel less competent and resentful of their own life.

Even when you have nothing your attitude is that one thing still under your control. Don’t be vengeful or jealous of others; choose to focus your energy on building something for yourself. Don’t live in envy and resentment choose to focus your attention on the now and commit to something worth completing.

  • Choose to build; build your knowledge, build your wealth, build your reputation, build your mastermind group, build your network.
  • Choose to create; create positive change, create strong values, create a legacy, create hope and a course of direction for your life.

At the end of the day we have to be accountable for ourselves. It’s up to us the legacy we decide to leave behind as individuals and as a collective. Be the role model and lead by example. Let people make their own decisions just offer value and direction, give it time but gradually those who support you will share your word and follow.

Sparking Transformational Growth

Why do some people experience miracle after miracle while others seem to experience no luck at all? Do they have a rabbit foot in their back pocket?

Truth is a lot of us don’t approach change with the right mindset. We need to start taking action this very instance; before you know it the window of opportunity is lost and never to return.

Start taking action! Start now! Don’t let anything hold you back! Don’t choose laziness; the easy path only guarantees jealousy and resentment. Choose to take the higher road and to put forth a consistent effort. Change is inevitable; start directing your energy in a more constructive way, work on becoming your best self.

Don’t let neglect bury you in a deep grave you can’t get out of. Stress will kill you if you let it; let the stress be a driving force. Find your passion, build your momentum and harness your energy. Use adrenaline to tackle your biggest fears.

Find your courage, embrace fearlessness overcoming anything that burdens you.

Challenge yourself. Don’t let mistakes and downfalls determine the course of your life. Never back down, never give up. Even when you feel isolated, even when things seem impossible commit to your vision choose to live morally strong.

Seek to understand and to grow. Your emotions will get the best of you on occasion, you’re only human. It’s okay to have an emotional reaction just don’t let emotions affect your decision-making in the grand scheme of things.

Allow pain to propel you forward, allow it to become a mindful learning experience, channel your pain and find a way to express yourself. Find your flow and let go; stop criticizing yourself and just let be, see what’s possible. Find something you’re passionate about and work tirelessly till it’s completed.

Anytime you feel down on yourself take action in the creation process. Create for yourself, find your expressive piece & allow your soul to move you. Find a place free of distractions, quiet your mind and just be.

Don’t be sad, be grateful and appreciate this very moment the natural flow of the universe will provide. Just be you, be genuine, find your true vibration. Find your truth, your happiness, and your reason to be; rid yourself of the soul-sucking ego.

Live purposefully and within your means encourage others to do the same. Commit to action everyday and work on building self-esteem. One day your pain will subside make sure pride is there to take its place.

“One should… be able to see things as hopeless and yet be determined to make them otherwise” – F. Scott Fitzgerald

Suffering is a part of life, we all suffer in different ways but something beautiful comes with it; Only through pain can we come to understand true joy.

“The wound is the place where the light enters you” – Jalaluddin Rami

Thinking Rich; The Growth Mindset

What is thinking rich? Can we think rich even if we don’t have an abundant of resources?

What ideas build the concept of thinking rich? Can you really build success by thinking rich?

thinking rich 3.jpg

The idea of thinking rich depends on your confidence in your ability. It’s believing in yourself and understanding the fact you’re competent enough to accomplish what could seem near impossible. Human consciousness is capable of so much but more often then not we stand in the way of our own accomplishments.

Why Think Rich?

Thinking rich is important in building one’s own self-esteem. It’s so easy for us to take the path of least resistance and live day-to-day with no goals, no passion. Thinking rich may not always be the easiest thing to do but it’s one of the biggest factors to becoming one’s best self.

Barriers to Thinking Rich

Nowadays it can be so hard to think rich. We’re so overwhelmed and consumed by everyday products and technology that a lot of us neglect simple routines that could ultimately propel our happiness exponentially.

Day by day neglect eats away at our self-esteem. We learn to live with the pain; we bury it so deep in our psych we almost forget it’s there. Thinking rich is acknowledging the truth about life and being able to rise out of the madness. We are the master’s of our own destinies; we create our future, we can’t be happy just gliding; through drifting through life.

Principles of Thinking Rich

Thinking rich is acknowledging the automatic negative thoughts (the ANTs) and being able to move past them. Thinking upbeat and positive we are better able to find our flow rather than interrupting ourselves with negative thinking. Make sure you’re mind is one that nurture’s not sabotages your well-being.

Upbeat & full of energy – living with passion & purpose. Thinking rich is taking control of your life and moving progressionally to where it is we want to be. In time our progress will inspire and self-motivate but until then we must focus on action. The fruits of labour will come in time, begin sowing and soon enough you’ll begin reaping what you’ve sown.

Be resourceful. Thinking rich, moving towards success means not squandering resources and opportunities. Thinking rich we are more in tuned with our surroundings and better able to recognize the opportunities that precede us.

Think action. Thinking rich is thinking action. It’s thinking for today, not tomorrow. Planning is important but planning obsessively without taking action is just wasting time. Be deliberate with your word; if you claim you’re going to do something don’t stop till you do it.

Focus on closing & completing. Don’t just set your sights on accomplishing everything. Live with purpose, do those things that are most important and most urgent in that moment. Tackle your biggest problems first, your biggest projects, and don’t stop till you’ve got something to show for.

Thinking rich is a perspective. Thinking rich is never feeling down because we know mistakes are all part of the learning experience. Don’t be afraid to think rich and don’t let others convince you you’re foolish for doing so. Thinking rich is a successful mindset that guarentees abundance whether be relationships or resources.
