A simple way to get rid of negativity

I have been always suggesting you guys to stay in the present moment and to fully appreciate its beauty. And indeed this should be one of the core foundations upon which create an exciting and rewarding life. Nonetheless from time to time we get overtaken by what happens to us or feel so deeply involved in some situation that we act in ways not completely aligned with our purpose. Sometimes we behave in a totally irrational way and our emotions become the only thing we see, the only reason to do something instead of something else. In this cases we feel like someone else is driving us, like what we are doing is the only thing we should be doing. We are absolutely unable to control ourselves and our actions.

This can be amazing when we are overruled by positive and inspiring emotions like love, compassion and commitment. For example, a mother driven by love can overcome incredible sufferings to ensure the wellbeing of her children and a passionate person can face very challenging situations to protect and support a very good friend.

4 Essential Reasons you should value Relationships over Money

Would you like to be one of those people who decided to give up everything just for sake of money and material possessions? Would you define as successful a person who became extremely rich but had to sacrifice family, friends and social connections?

We are immersed in a reality in which luxurious cars, huge villas in front of the beach and glossy clothes play an ever growing importance in defining the level of success we have achieved. It seems that material possessions are the only thing distinguishing a great man from another one. However, this is a misleading concept which makes us blind. It makes us seek and pursue the unessential.

From what I’ve learned I can assure you that once we are able to fulfill our primary needs (food, shelter and clothing) then making more money starts to become less important. Having the possibility to buy more and to satisfy your desires might sound appealing, but in reality others are the key factors which define the quality of our lives. (read more..)

Is your environment taking you down?

Last time I have talked a lot about attitude and positivity. These are indeed fundamental aspects of our lives. If you don’t expect to succeed you are most likely to fail. If you think that every setback is just a proof of your inabilities you are not going to improve any soon. If you see yourself as limited and powerless for sure you are not going to start a fresh new adventure that might bring new excitement into your life.

Many people understand this principle and try their best in order to change their minds and thus to create a better reality for themselves. Nonetheless this is absolutely not easy and it is not guaranteed that one is going to succeed.

Sometimes we try to change our opinion and to see the good in every situation but we just can’t help but go back with our minds to what is still not perfect, to the long way that is still in front of ourselves. In fact, many times what really prevents us from changing is not our mind, but rather the environment we live in. (read more..)

How to change your reality by focusing on the positive

We are gifted human beings. Our abilities go far beyond every expectation. Our body is an unbelievable machine which enables us to act the way we think and to realize amazing things. We can run free among nature, we can make amazing acts of compassion, we can hug other people and show them our love. But what is most incredible about ourselves is our mind.

The power of our mind is almost endless. The problem is we are not able to fully harness it. We are not even aware of it.

One of the greatest ability of our mind is to shape the reality we live in. It might sound strange, or even ridiculous. You may affirm that reality is physical, unique. But indeed everyone experiences a slightly different reality. And what makes the difference between what I see and what you see is nothing else but our minds. (read more..)

Do we really need to become a better version of ourselves?

Everyone is talking about personal development. Everyone is setting his own goals and following his own purpose. Everyone has that BIG dream she is trying to realize with her full strengths. But what is the point of all this? Why should we decide to struggle, to face discomfort and uncertainty? Do we really love to fail over and over again just because we believe that one day we are going to succeed? Will we really become a better version of ourselves just by reaching those objectives that we have set for ourselves?

Aren’t we enough?

Is there anything wrong with ourselves and with the life we are living right now?

I am one of those who actually sets goals for himself. I have achieved some and failed others. I have been incredibly happy right after realizing some of them and I have felt really frustrated when things did not to go the way I had planned. But one thing is absolutely certain: reaching or achieving our goals is not what really defines who we are.

I am equally proud of myself whether I fail or I succeed. And this should be true also for you. Goals are important, but they are not essential. (read more..)

6 Simple strategies to effectively deal with Self-doubt

As we go through life, it might happen that we suddenly stop and realize that nothing is going the way we planned, that things are not turning out the way we expected them. We might start doubting our own abilities and beliefs. We might feel unsure about what is going to happen and question our ability to shape our life the way we truly desire.

We might feel small and powerless.

In these situations, we expect that the whole world might collapse on us. However, this is just temporary. Most of the times we are just giving birth to a monster inside our minds. The real problem is that we have to get rid of all our doubts quickly; otherwise the monster would grow bigger and bigger making us depressed, exhausted, overwhelmed.

Discomfort might be a valuable signal that we need to change something, that our lives are not aligned with our true purposes. If this is the case, than we should better understand which are our inner desires and take some little steps toward our dream life. Nonetheless, most of the times self-doubt arises out of stress, of a bad period or due to some challenge we will have to face soon. (read more..)
