Forgiveness – Why Is It So Difficult? Part 1

Forgiveness_Design2_02

When someone we love and trusted has treated us with disdain the last thing on our minds at first is forgiveness. Our dreams have been shattered and we usually become angry and want revenge. Forgiveness isn’t on the horizon.

If you’re infused with anger and resentment toward another person, your thoughts are likely full of negativity. You may also have guilt for how you contributed to the situation or think that forgiving is only for the weak – and you never want to forget the transgression so it will never happen again.

Being judgmental is also a reason why it’s so hard to forgive another. If you perceive the other person as not appreciating you or all you’ve done for them or the love and trust you’ve put in the relationship, it becomes even more difficult. You’re so disappointed by the other person’s behavior that you refuse to put it in the past.

It’s important to remember that forgiveness doesn’t automatically let the person off the hook for what they’ve done. Even if they apologize or make amends for the transgression, you may think they need to continue paying by being non-forgiving and casting them out of your life for good.

You can make the choice to forgive and still not reconcile or accept what they’ve done. But, when your harshness of judging begins to permeate your own life and make you bitter and resentful, forgiveness can be a gift that you give yourself so you can pick up the pieces and go on in a healthy manner.

 

 

15 Power of Positive Thinking Quotes

positive-thinking-b

  1. Thoughts are not static. They gather momentum like a snowball on a hill. Positive thoughts blossom – negative thoughts flatten.
  2. Negative thoughts can quickly become catastrophic. Learn to “re-frame” them into more positive, realistic thoughts.
  3. Find ways to turn even negatives into positives.
  4. Use music to help shift thoughts from negative to positive. Make a playlist of tunes or songs you find energizing or inspiring.
  5. Don’t feed negativity by hanging with negative people or listening to negative music. Raise your energy by using positive stimuli.
  6. “If you want light to come into your life, you need to stand where it is shining” – Guy Finley
  7. The difference between being truly rich or poor is how you choose to feel – no matter what is going on around you.
  8. If you truly want to embrace positive thinking, stop paying attention to (and feeding) your negative thoughts and fears.
  9. If positive thinking is to work, you need to realistically decide where you need to change your thoughts.
  10. Pay attention to your words. They create your reality. Negative words create a negative reality; positive words create a positive reality.
  11. Humor can help stimulate a positive attitude, which helps positive thinking. So as they say, use it – don’t lose it.
  12. Do one thing daily you truly enjoy and let yourself look forward to it. That is the secret to shifting a negative outlook to positive.

Change Your Thinking!

Day 1 Ambition

Change Your Thinking and Start Thinking Big

In many ways, big thinking is all about changing the way that you currently think. Often, you need to look deep inside yourself in order to see deeply entrenched patterns of behavior that you may not have previously been aware of. This, while difficult, is a necessary process. You see, we often operate on automatic pilot. Our brains are programmed this way on order to save on caloric energy. Have you ever driven home and realized once you’ve arrived that you have absolutely no memory of the drive itself? That’s your brain on automatic pilot. When we are in this mental mode, our brains rely on old behaviors, ones that have been laid down over long periods of time, to keep us moving and reacting appropriately.

Unfortunately, some of these patterns of behavior are not always optimal. If you have a tendency to be negative, then it is virtually guaranteed that some of your patterns of behavior exhibit these tendencies, as well. When you go into autopilot mode this negativity is manifested in a knee-jerk reflexive action because the pattern of behavior is so ingrained. So, while the pattern is saving the caloric energy that is required of creative and reflective thought, it may also be causing you to experience negative outcomes over and over again without you even consciously realizing what it is that you are doing.

The answer to this situation is to assess all of your behaviors and reactions and identify the ones that are the most problematic. Are there patterns to your current way of approaching the world that you can see? Are any of these patterns mostly negative or producing negative outcomes? Are you able to see connections and patterns that you weren’t even aware of?

The key to successfully changing the way that you think is to root out these “automatic” ingrained behaviors. Sometimes, these behaviors can be so deeply ingrained that you may simply be incapable of recognizing them. If you look at your behavior and find nothing wrong, yet you still seem to be unable to reach your goals, this may be what’s going on. In this case, you might need to have your behavior assessed by a third party. A second set of eyes, especially when they aren’t yours, may be able to point out some troublesome areas. Pick someone you trust, someone who’s close to you and knows you well, and ask them about your potentially negative behaviors. You might be surprised to find out what someone else sees.

How To Regain Personal Momentum

TheMomentumPrinciple_Design5_04

Have you lost the enthusiasm and sense of purpose in your personal life? Some signs might be that you’re tired all the time, out of shape, bored, lack self-confidence and feel stuck in a rut. You’ve lost your momentum.

When you lose your personal momentum you lose the desire to pull yourself up and get going again. It’s like you’re stuck in quicksand and it keeps pulling you down. Unlike quicksand, you have to start moving again to gain the momentum you lost and get back into the life you want. Here are some tips to get back in the momentum game:

  • Socialize – Gain energy from positive people in your life. Take advantage of friends and family members you feel great being around.
  • Set ONE priority – It’s easy to become overwhelmed by things you must do. If you set one priority for an activity, you’ll be more apt to finish it.
  • Make time – Set a time in concrete to begin the activity. Do it no matter how you feel at the moment.
  • Make space for the activity – Set yourself up for success by making room for the work you’re about to do. That may mean clearing off your desk or setting your alarm clock for an earlier wake-up time.
  • Complete the project – Don’t stop or look back or forward until you completely finish the project at hand.
  • Use a timer – Until that timer goes off, be committed to work on the activity or project you set as a priority. No checking emails or answering the phone until it’s completed or the timer rings.
  • Set small increments of time – Especially at first – you don’t want to overwhelm yourself, so set small amounts of time to devote to your project that will be easy to do.
  • Don’t let anything stand in your way – Take some type of action toward your goal even if you don’t feel like it or something monumental happens to ruin your day. Do something.
  • Don’t skip your work times –Whether it’s exercising or getting busy on a novel, meet the times you set for work like it’s a life or death appointment.

“Stuff” is bound to happen to push you off track. You or a family member could catch the flu and be inundated with doctors’ appointments and bed rest. Your car might break down or your job might require that you work evenings.

The main thing about regaining personal momentum is not to give up. You’ve got to drag yourself back up and begin or restart again and never look back. It’s a skill that all those who have accomplished great things has learned –and it’s a skill you must practice to reach your goals and fulfill your dreams.

The greatest power we have in the natural is the power of our thoughts. There is an Intelligence inside us that can elevate our life at the highest level. Everyone should learn to work in partnership with this Intelligence which is formed to react on our intentions and to create with us a life of abundance and happiness.
 
Freedom, happiness, richness, love, friendship, health and wealth are our birth right.
We have been created to live our life in freedom, health and wealth. If our life doesn’t look like that, it means we block ourselves by our thoughts. Our thoughts are very powerful instruments we use to either create happiness and wealth, or sickness and poverty.
 
If your life doesn’t look like what you’re dreaming of, it means you have thoughts which go against you. Your thoughts create your life. If you want to change your life, change first your thoughts.
You can choose your thoughts. Nobody in the world can put a thought in your head without your permission. Your mind belongs to you! It’s your job to control your thoughts! You are the master of your mind (you know it better than anyone), you are the caretaker of your thoughts. You can change them. Choose those thoughts which will bring you the results you want.

5 Qualities of A Great Life Coach

March 30, 2016 Leave a comment
Coaching_design1_06

Diamond Coaching Success

When it comes to coaching people, there are a lot of good qualities that many coaches exhibit. In fact, every coach out there has some good qualities that you could list about them, but if you talk to enough coaches and you get to know the people at the top of the industry, you will notice a pattern starting to emerge. You will see that the most successful coaches actually share some of the same attributes. Here are five qualities that the greatest coaches have. See if you can develop these same attributes so that you’ll be in that elite club of successful coaches who are making a difference with their practice.

 

Self-Awareness: Self-awareness is a big one. You want to know yourself intimately because if you are still struggling with finding out who you are, you are going to have a major problem coaching other people.

Great Communication: The best coaches have great communication. They say the right things at the right times, and even more importantly, they listen. Listening is a skill that you want to develop and you want to understand and empathize with the people who you’re listening to so that you can communicate not only what you want to say, but also exactly what they need.

Perceptiveness: Great coaches are perceptive. They notice things. Coaches can tell when someone is not as motivated as they used to be, or when someone is having a bad day. This perceptiveness comes in handy when getting to the root of a client’s problem, and digging down into the beliefs and thoughts that drive a specific behavior.

Organized and Professional:  Great coaches are not only professional, dressing the part, and always having the right attitude, they are also very organized. Even if you aren’t naturally an organized person, you should take a class or just learn to do better because organization is vital to running a good coaching business. You’ll be collecting information about several different clients and helping them each with a different goal, and unless you are organized you are going to get confused and look unprofessional.

Flexible:  The best coaches are also very flexible. They can easily bounce back when someone throws them a curve ball. If a particular style of coaching or method isn’t working with a certain client, they are happy to change things up and allow them to learn from a completely different place, even if it isn’t one that they are most comfortable with.
