3 Months From Now, You Will Thank Yourself - Study Motivation

Contrary to what some people believe, actually we're all pretty similar to each other no matter our background, our race, our gender.  We're all actually striving for the same things, the answer to three main questions in life is a large part of it -

1) Who are you and what is your value 
2) What is your purpose here in life, and
3) What is your destiny when you're done here

These questions are often all that is driving our exploits in life; our business or career goals, our relationships, our reason to get up in the morning.   Here Nick Vujicic shows how to focus our thoughts and aspirations to find true fulfilment.  This video also includes a very practical and effective tool to help us get through the tough times in our lives - WTOH (watch and find out) -  Stay strong

Enthusiasm - How to Find It

By Stephen Russell-Lacy

How keen are you to get up in the morning and follow your ordinary day?

Have you the enthusiasm needed to do what is fulfilling and good?
"Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm". (Ralph Waldo Emerson, philosopher)
With inspiration, and the enthusiasm that goes along with it, we have energy for living life to the full, no matter what obstacles and hardships it throws in our faces.
What can one do to feel enthusiasm for what one does each and every day?

Danger of enthusiasm carrying us away

We may be a naturally generous, kind, or affectionate sort of person. And so become easily swayed and even enthusiastic about giving away money, time or love. But such inbuilt good tendencies can weaken judgement about a situation. Sentiment or fervent emotion may need the protection of good sense before it runs away with itself.

Our thinking may be realistic or unrealistic. Before giving charity to an alcoholic, remember he or she will likely spend gift money o…

Learn This, and You'll Never Be The Same! (Use This!)

Have you ever felt that you are banging your head against a brick wall?  That you are investing great effort in a project or goal but achieving little results?  Sometimes our biggest enemy is ourselves, or more specifically 'our minds'.  Our beliefs and expectations can either limit us or release us into experiencing the great things that we long to see realised.  Also, whether we like it or not, our lives are governed not only by physical laws in this universe, but also by spiritual laws.  If we are open to the discovery of these laws and are prepared to operate them just as we would the physical laws of nature we will find that our lives take on a completely different quality and the things we long for will begin to manifest in the reality of our physical world. 

This video hones in on the Law of sowing and reaping, or what is sometimes described as the Law of Attraction, that is that what we can visualise, we can expect and what we can expect we can see manifest.  If this i…

When Someone Says, "It's Alright For You"

By Susan Leigh

How many of us have had the expression, 'it's alright for you' directed at us? Whether uttered verbally or implied through a look or a sneer, the sense that we're somehow blessed with super-special advantages can be galling.

It may be perceived as 'alright' for us because we've a partner and are supported through having an ally in our corner, or conversely because we're single and so have lots of free time, no responsibilities and are unencumbered. Or we may be seen as having good fortune because we're intelligent, motivated, financially okay - they've decided we're especially gifted in some way. Whatever our story, we're seen as 'lucky'.
But being deemed as 'alright' doesn't give recognition or acknowledgement to the drive, determination and sacrifices that have gone into achieving those results. It's inferred that, through being blessed in some way, we've miraculously been given this good fortune…


"If you think you're going to be successful without hard work, you're fooling yourself"

-Arnold Schwarzenegger

If we want to achieve something that others have achieved, we have to think how they think and do what they did.  So it makes sense to narrow down just how the most successful people think so that we can implement those patterns in our own thought lives.  So, the moral of the story is-

If they did it, so can I!!

Being Extraordinary - The Simple 3 Step Formula For Creating The Life of Your Dreams (Start Living)

By Trent Fisher
The dictionary defines extraordinary as: "beyond what is usual, ordinary, regular, or established." You were not born to be ordinary. You are a unique individual; you will never be satisfied with an average life. There was no one in the past, currently alive, or ever will be living, that is exactly like you. Once you understand this, you will know that because you are not like anyone else, you cannot be ordinary. Therefore, you need to be extraordinary. Society wants you to be average, to fit a defined mold that was decided upon by others before you were born. You, as an individual, weren't taken into consideration when they set what society expected. Some of the factors used for this include; sex, skin color, nationality, socioeconomic standing, education, religion, etc. Do you feel unfulfilled in your life? Do you think something is missing from your life? If you answered "yes" to these questions, this feeling is because your soul is call…

Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Circumstances! (Law Of Attraction) Pow...

What is the key to changing our life's external circumstances?  We've heard before that the answer is that we need to change our thoughts.  But, how do we do that and why does it seem so hard to do?  The answer is that we are often trying to change our conscious thoughts and beliefs rather than our subconscious thoughts which are the true drivers of our conscious thoughts and behaviours.  This video provides tried and tested tools to enable us to do that, and create the lasting change that we long to see in our lives.  I think you'll find this illuminating!  Thanks for watching!

5 Ways to Feel More Positive in 10 Minutes

By Michaela Barnard

I often have people say I am always positive, like I was born with it or it's just part of my personality. But what you should know is that being positive is a choice - a weekly choice, a daily choice and an hourly choice. Through the journey of personal development, remembering that we always have a choice has been a game changer. Every moment I choose to be positive, feel positive or see the positive and the exciting thing is, if you're a human and have a heartbeat, you have a choice too!
I've put together these five ways you can feel more positive in ten short minutes and change your attitude for the rest of the day:

1. Gratitude
2. Feed your soul good news
3. Make a to-do list
4. Walk outside
5. Smile

1. Have an attitude of gratitude

You may have heard of it, but a grateful heart can't be an unhappy heart. Grab a piece of paper and scribble down 3-5 things you are grateful for right now. Whether it's your heart that beats without you telling it to, t…

The Video That Will Change Your Future - One of the BEST MOTIVATIONAL VI...

Change your life, change your future! If your life was a book, what story are you writing?  One of the greatest life lessons we can learn is to realise that our progress and success in life is completely dependent on us!  No one else is going to live our lives for us or make the difficult decisions we need to make in order to help us fulfil our life's dream.  But the reverse of this fact is that no one else can stop us either!! So, here's a question: 'What story is your life writing right now'?

7 Reasons To Discover Your Life Purpose - It's Never Too Late

By Trent Fisher

Following your life purpose has so many advantages it's incredible that so many people don't discover theirs. You may think that you don't have a purpose, but I disagree. I believe everyone on this planet has a purpose to fulfil. It may not be something grand like being the leader of a country or finding a cure for a disease that is plaguing humanity. But, you do have a purpose, and it is one that you are uniquely qualified to carry out.

Here are 7 Reasons why following your purpose is so important

You will be happier - Understanding your purpose and living it will cause you be in alignment with who you are as a person. When you are not in alignment, you feel disconnected and frustrated. When you are in alignment, you feel a sense of connectedness and joy. Living your purpose will give you more happiness because you feel fully you.

You will be fulfilled - In the same way that living your purpose will make you happier, it will make you more fulfilled. This happe…

What's our most precious resource? Not money - we always have the option of working hard and getting more of it!  It's our time!  It's the one thing we've got the least control over! So, if we're smart we'll use what we've still got to it's maximum potential!  It's truly using our time to it's fullest when we can look back over our lives and say 'I used my time to the max' and I have no regrets!   Here's an inspiration to do just that from Morgan Freeman.  Enjoy!  :-)

What To Do When You Have More Than You Can Handle

By Tim L. Latham

Life is a series of challenges to be managed.

In between trials, life can seem easy, but the next problem is always on the way. When faced with too many challenges at once, it's easy to feel overwhelmed and to believe that you have more going on in your life than you can handle.
Regardless of the size or the number of challenges you may face, the solution is the same: Ignore those things you can't influence and spend your time and energy implementing solutions for those things you can control.
A level head, a solid plan, persistence, and assistance can overcome any challenge life may bring.

Try these strategies to lighten your load:

1. Acknowledge that you're feeling overwhelmed. There's nothing to be gained by ignoring your situation. You'll be in a better position to efficiently deal with your life when you acknowledge the reality of the situation. When you recognize that something is wrong, you can begin to do something about it.

2. Take a timeout. If …

THE MINDSET OF HIGH ACHIEVERS - Best Motivational Video for Success in L...

Do you want to be high achiever?  Maybe, maybe not!  Maybe becoming a 'high achiever' isn't specifically on your list of things to accomplish, but what about if we rephrase it?!  Do you want to make your life count?  Do you want to make a difference with the life you've been given?   Do you want to achieve financial independence and freedom so that you can enjoy the freedom of having more than just 'enough', more than just scraping by, and have an abundance to enable you to reach out and help others when you want?  This is all part of what it means to fulfil your full potential.   Being a high achiever really means overcoming all the obstacles blocking you from fulfilling that goal, the goal that will enable you to reach the place of feeling full and happy with life, becoming a significant blessing in the lives of others.  Here Denzel Washington gives some much needed and hard learned wisdom on this life transforming topic! Enjoy, and if it inspires you, leave …

Life Lessons From Our Dogs

By Iris Fanning

This past week has been filled with highs and lows. My husband, Ken, traveled to San Diego to bring our son home for the summer from college. I was looking forward to spending some time with our son, Sean.

This same week our beloved Boston Terrier Mix dog, Lucky, became gravely ill. He hung on until my guys got home. Then it became apparent that he was in pain and his system was shutting down. There's no need for the details. We took Lucky to the vet yesterday morning and at age 19 he passed on his own a minute or two after we left the room.
What do we learn from our beloved dogs and cats? Here are a few things I learned from Lucky.

* There's always time for fun & play.

* Simply be happy when you're with the people you love.

* A walk is always in order.

* Stop & smell the flowers, grass and clean air.

* Food is good. So is water.

* Stretch

* Show others your appreciation.

* Sleep well. Don't worry.

* Back scratches are great!

* Pay attention and comfort othe…

Seven Ways to Keep Your Cool During Difficult Economic Times

By Iris Fanning

Many people are experiencing stress, anxiety and difficult emotions due to this economic down turn.  It's important to keep this in perspective and learn tools and secrets to being productive, happy and more relaxed during this time.

1.  Tough Times Don't Last -  It's important to remember that any difficulty, stress or trauma is transient by nature.  You will get through this time just as your ancestors weathered the Great Depression, World Wars, losses and changes.  Your are hearty enough to get through this time in history.

Hi.  We've looked before at some issues regarding depression and low motivation.  Wouldn't you love to know exactly what causes it?  Krish Eswar in this video gets specific about what causes low mood.  Turns out it is a deficiency in something in our brains called Dopamine which is usually generated naturally.  But if this reached low levels then we experience all the symptoms related to depression like fatigue, low motivation, memory problems, poor concentration etc.  Would you like to find out how to increase it naturally without drugs?  Well, here it is!

Picture What You Want In Your Mind

For nearly anything in life, you need to picture what you want in your mind first while taking the necessary steps to create it into your reality. It is not enough to just imagine the things you desire, sit on a couch and eat a sandwich. Dreams never literally take physical form unless you put in the work.
But where do you even begin? How can you go about realizing what you want? What can you do to change your current circumstances? Why is the mind so powerful?

Well, if you can picture what you want in your mind, believe it in your heart, and have the desire and the courage to work for it, you can bring it into your reality. You have to see it happening. There is nothing off limits. And there are no limitations to those who believe and those who are willing to work for their dream. So, you have to see it in your mind before you can see it in your reality.
You need to visualize what you want. Picture everything you want so clearly in your mind until you can see it right in front of you. W…

Happiness is all in your mind: Gen Kelsang Nyema at TEDxGreenville 2014

Are you having a good day?  What is making it a good day?  These are some of the questions Gen Kelsang asks and they are particularly poignant when understanding how to become happy.  Most people think that our happiness is based on what 'happens' to us, what the circumstances in our lives are like, but living like this puts us at the mercy of the random events that take place in our lives.  There is a better way!

Some people might be put off by the fact that the speaker is a buddist monk, but actually she's just teaching fundamental principles that are true to life, and are also very biblical.  If you don't know how to 'make yourself' happy, then this is for you.   To your happiness!!

The Secret to Being Attractive

By Vyara Bridgeman

How many times have you wished you were smarter, younger, fitter, slimmer and better? And why?
I often observe intelligent people who do well in life and intelligent people who don't. I have met beautiful individuals who are well liked and successful, but I have also met countless of miserable beauties. I have seen slim people full of happiness, and I have also seen slim people drowning in depression.

So, do you have to look good to feel good? Do you have to look good to do well? Of course you don't! If you want people to be drawn to you, you need something else.
When it comes to being attractive, be it in your social, sexual or professional life, the first thing to look at is your personal confidence; second one is the degree to which you live out your passion.
Surely, there is nothing attractive about a slim beauty that is self-conscious, feels lost and doesn't have any interests or passion. People are drawn to interesting people full of life. Vitality is c…

Tony Robbins: How to deal with STRESS and DEPRESSION - #MentorMeTony

It's one of the greatest scourges of our time - it's depression!  It saps our energy, robs us of our interests and makes the simplest of tasks seem almost impossible!  Most of us have felt it at some point in our lives, but often we just don't know how to get better.  Medication can certainly help to get us back on track, but really it's just treating the symptoms.   The real cause lies in something deeper, something more fundamental to our way of life.  Which is great news, because if it's cause is often related to our lifestyle habits, it means we have the power to change and become people who live, rather than people who simply tolerate their present state!  In this video Tony Robbins pinpoints both the cause and the cure for depression and these principles and lifestyle changes are nothing short of life-changing!!  Be blessed!!

Be Somebody Nobody Thought You Could Be

By Sergei Vanbellinghen

When you want to be somebody nobody thought you could be, you should feel inspired by other's successes. But numerous people feel envious or jealous, even becoming bitter towards successful individuals. However, through sheer determination, you can create a life full of achievements.
Would you choose to create success for yourself or let envy define it for you? How can you push forward to become a successful you? Is someone else's success making you envious? Are you ready to make things happen in your life?
We all feel the need to prove to the world that we could become the person we want to be and realize our dreams. But first, to do this, you have to believe you can be somebody at any time. You just have to decide to make it so through hard work, persistence, determination, and conviction.

Age is and can never a barrier! When other people think that you could not be somebody, you have to make their perception wrong. You need to push yourself to the limits…
