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.

Principles of Blog Writing

When it comes to blog writing everyone has their own take. Blog writing is self-expression at its finest, allowing even the most complex individuals to showcase and articulate their deepest thoughts without fear of rejection.

Honestly when I think about blog writing I think to myself… Am I really cut out for this? Could I really maintain a blog? Would I be able to keep up with engaging content that viewers actually want to read?

Realistically it doesn’t matter as long as I write. My first principle of blog-writing is doing it for myself. Writing about topics that peak my interest and at a volume that makes sense to me. If I wake up tomorrow and don’t want to write a blog, that’s fine, I won’t write a blog that day. If I wake up and want to write 4 blogs then I don’t let anything stop me and I do so. I try not to criticize myself in terms of working on my blog; I try to just allow the energy to flow naturally.

My second principle would be patience. There are many factors that contribute to becoming a successful SEO and blog writing is only one of those aspects. It’s essential to continue to stay patient not only when considering building followers but also when working on developing your own personal skills. Change is inevitable and we need to continue our own personal progression to stay innovative and ahead of the curve.

Principle three; perseverance. (A) Staying true to your voice, (B) putting the time in when it counts and (C) remaining consistent.

(A) First persevere with your voice. Don’t forget about why you began and what your aim was. What were your values and your overall goal? Stay consistent with who you are just focus on A+ quality. Honestly we can all be insightful if we are given the opportunity to engage in deep thought. We all see the world different from one another and can learn from each other’s various perspectives. Staying true to yourself means staying in line with your passion and finding a niche that will appreciate and support you for who you are.

(B) Putting in the time when it counts refers to not allowing yourself to fall behind. It means being able to deviate good decisions from bad ones, doing what actually needs to be done rather than a lesser task. It means potentially staying up some nights just to get head sometimes just to allow freedom to breathe. Writing can easily become a daunting task if you begin to resent it but that’s not to say it could also introduce you into a world of euphoria engaging in new positive thought patterns.

(C) Perseverance is everything. “Writing at its best, is a lonely life” – Ernest Hemingway. You need to be willing to endure solitude and isolation to concentrate on your own thoughts.

Principle four; care for yourself. Now this may seem odd and almost like it has nothing to do with blog-writing but that couldn’t be further from the truth. If blogging is our platform for self-expression then we need to be sure we are expressing ourselves in a whole, joyous way. Choose to live in the light rather than the darkness.

If we are angry at the world 24/7 365 days out of the year then most likely when we write the underlying tone that the readers will embrace is that of anger or sadness. We need to be able to write from the heart from a place of love or the craft will become tedious and repetitive fairly quickly.”We can’t learn to love another until we’ve learnt to love ourselves” this is also in our writing. Learn to love yourself and enjoy being happy everything else will fall in line.

Personal Growth & Development

“Lost time is never found again” – Benjamin Franklin

personal growth and development

Success is a small list of daily habits carried out with consistency over an extensive period of time. Ideally we fashion the lives we want with the actions we choose yet most of us are sabotaging ourselves with destructive habits. Its time to wake up and start taking action.

We all use our time differently and these differences will determine the course of where our life will flow. Choosing to wake up never intently thinking about the future we tend to lead ourselves down a rabbit hole we cannot escape. Gradually our self-destructive habits take a toll on our resources and our self-esteem creating an uncontrollable downward spiral which usually leads to reckless spending and consumer debt. The effects of debt can be soul-crushing making the future appear hopeless.

We must consciously choose to look at our choices with a long-term approach in mind.

“People do not lack strength, they lack will” – Victor Hugo

Distractions are everywhere. From binge watching TV shows to never getting off social media many individuals are wasting their time gaining no benefit from their actions. More often then not these individuals are sick of their monotonous routine and actually experience negative side effects yet they continue to live the same patterns.

We all have our strengths and our weaknesses but it’s up to us to take personal responsibility for our own growth. Once we stop stretching our comfort zones our lives become plain and dull. We need to create a plan of action to accomplishing what we believe is possible or else we will never get there.

Don’t live hoping, wishing and ultimately regretting. Take action and see what’s possible. You determine your own worth. If time is money then don’t let yours be wasted, be conscious with how you manage it. Determine what you’re willing to sacrifice for the greater good and take progressional steps to get there.

Before embarking on your soulful journey be sure to consider the following:

  1.  Transformational change begins with your attitude.
    Be positive and have faith that your circumstances will become better with time.
  2. Make your goals clear.
    What do you want to achieve and how are you going to get there?
  3. Evaluate your current support system.
    Do the people around you support your new goals and ideas or are they discouraging?
  4. Create/find a safe haven conducive to your growth.
    Find an efficient place you can be alone; somewhere to reflect, think and be productive.
  5. Start everyday with a plan.
    Evaluate and plan everything you need to accomplish the night prior
    Prioritize your tasks as efficiently as possible
  6. Set the mood for your day.
    Find a way to make your mornings joyful whether it be reading, writing, listen to music or engaging in physical activity.
  7. Enjoy the process.
    “Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is more important than the outcome” – Arthur Ashe. Remember to have fun along the way or you’ll soon lose your “umph” and inspiration to persevere.
  8. Do what works for you.
    Everyone’s vision of success is different. Don’t let people persuade you off the right path. Remember your values and what you’re ultimately trying to obtain. Remember not to stress take life as it comes, you can never plan for everything. Be flexible but always considerate of how your actions affect others.
  9. Learn from the best.
    Whether it be the best teachers or the best sources, choose to go straight to the source whenever possible. Don’t believe everyone tells you. Question everything; learn to make up your own mind if there’s no evidence pertaining to the circumstance.
  10.  Be humble in the face of humility.
    Don’t rationalize why you failed instead re-evaluate how the situation could be done differently and act. Don’t complain or go into a negative state of mind, learn from your mistakes.
  11.  Be consistently persistent.
    Get up when you get knocked down. No pain no gain; we stand back up only to grow stronger if we’re willing to learn from our mistakes.
  12.  Read, read and read some more.
    By other’s faults wise men correct their own.

Information is everywhere there’s never been a better time to learn for free. Whether it be online pdfs, audio books or credible articles the power is at our fingertips and is more available than ever.

“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge” – Daniel Boorstin

Always have good intentions and seek to understand the knowledge parted. If you know you’re doing the right thing don’t let others convince you otherwise. Be confident in your ability and act with conviction. Don’t let anyone stand in the way on your path to becoming your best self.
