How to Overcome A Stagnate Life

July 11, 2015 4 comments

Live on Purpose

Do you feel like you’re stuck in a rut now that you are seven months into another year? Are you having the same struggles in your love life, career, friendships, or passion?

It’s time to take action to fix the problem. You’ll first want to identify the areas of your life that feel “off.”

Take some time to reflect on what’s bothering you and why. Once you know what’s going on, it’s easier to find a solution.

Having a Goal

It’s important to have goals in all aspects of your life because it focuses your energy onto the big picture. When you have a purpose for your actions, you’ll begin to see those little steps being important building blocks for your end goal. Your life won’t seem so stale when you have your end goal in mind at all times.

Here are some tips for setting goals:

  • Make your goals attainable. If you have lofty goals, break them up into smaller pieces.
  • Write your goals down on paper and keep them handy.
  • Always state your goals in a positive fashion (i.e. “I will be free of unhealthy relationships or bad business/ministry deals…” instead of: “I will stop hanging with the wrong people or I will stop making bad decisions…”)
  • Be as detailed as you can when planning out your goals step by step.
  • Fight the urge to procrastinate.

Take Action

Once you’ve discovered the areas of your life that need changing, and you have goals in mind, it’s time to take action. When things have hit a point of stagnation there is no other choice you have but to take swift action.

Remember that you can think, plan, or worry all day long but it’ll do nothing positive for your life if you don’t act.

Here are some strategies to keep in mind as you put your goals into action:

  1. Don’t Hold Yourself Back. If you already know what’s holding you back, it’s time to fix the problem so you can take action. Is fear holding you back? If so, it’d be in your best interest to master your fears. A life full of stagnation because of fear will do more harm than good.
  2. Be Consistent. Many people will crack down on changing their life and then drift back into a world of stagnation. Once you’ve started to take action, make sure it’s consistent action. This is the only way you’ll reach your life goals.
  3. Right Now. You already have your plan in place and it’s broken up into small pieces. Ask yourself what you can accomplish right now to put yourself a positive step closer toward your goal. It doesn’t matter if you only have 15 minutes, there is sure to be something you can accomplish in that time period.
  4. Take Time to Unwind. It’s easy to get excited and eager about your new goals and dreams, but ensure you schedule some “me time” as well. You need to be able to get a good night’s sleep and rejuvenate your body and mind. Otherwise, you risk physical and mental exhaustion, which will only bring you back to stagnation!
  5. Take Notes. Be sure to take notes of your observations and tweak your actions along the way. Doing so will help you figure out what’s working for you and what’s not.

Picture Yourself

At the end of the day you should picture yourself having broken the chain of stagnation. Even if you’re not quite there yet, it’s important to remember that it’s possible and likely when you’re willing to change!

What Have You Learned So Far? Your Life Lessons

Special Teaching of Minister Ginger Lodnon

Special Teaching of Minister Ginger London

Life is a fascinating journey that provides many twists, turns, and surprises. You can’t always predict which way your life will go. Sometimes, you might want to sit back and survey what’s important to you and what you’ve learned so far.

Reflecting on what you know to be true about life can actually help you live a rewarding existence and keep enjoying the best parts of life.

What are the life lessons you’ve learned so far? Listed below are some commonly identified life lessons. If you haven’t learned these lessons yet, maybe reading about them will cultivate your thoughts about what you have learned. Plus, you’ll expose your mind to these ideas and if you choose, you can incorporate these important concepts into your own life lesson repertoire.

  1. Recognize and cope with your own feelings. Learning this lesson early in life will prevent you from making many mistakes in terms of your choices and relationships. Take time to label what you’re feeling and learn how to express and cope with your emotions positively. Learning this life lesson will enrich your existence.
  2. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Somebody said this phrase a long time ago and it really caught on. Learn to tell the difference between something that really matters to you and something that, in the scheme of things, will not affect your life in any dramatic or real way.
  3. Take care of your health and appearance. Whether you like it or not, the health decisions you make each day have a profound impact on the kind of life you’ll experience in the present and future. And those decisions directly affect your personal appearance.
  4. Respect others. You don’t have to like all the people you meet and you certainly don’t have to make friends with them. But if you respect everyone, your own life will likely be easier and more enjoyable. Although you might not feel respected by someone, you can’t go wrong in respecting them anyway.
  5. Learn to delay your own gratification. Whether it’s putting your opinions out there, imbibing in alcohol, wanting to buy yourself the latest expensive toy, or just insisting on getting your own way about something, don’t expect or demand that your needs be met immediately,
  6. Keep your mind open and your mouth closed. When you’re open to accepting new people, places, and things, your possibilities are endless. Rather than disagree or criticize something you don’t understand, try to expand your mind to the new concept and take it all in. Who knows, it might become your next favorite thing.
  7. When it’s all over, only love matters. A lesson that most of us don’t learn until very late in our lives is that the place you worked, the money you made, and the “toys” you collected don’t add up to much as you near life’s end. What does matter is that you’ve loved and been loved. Everything else falls away.

Your life lessons might look quite different from this list. The most important point is that you identify the deepest, most meaningful lessons you’ve learned about life. When you recognize what really matters to you, you’ll live each day consciously and full of purpose.

Live The Life You Have Always Wanted

Are you living an authentic life? If you find yourself yearning for things to change, wishing that you could be somebody else, or wanting to live a totally different lifestyle, maybe it’s time you revealed your true self to the world.

 If you believe you only get one life and this is it, you likely realize how important it is to live the life you desire. You can best accomplish this by discovering the real “you” inside and catering to what’s most important to you.

So how do you start the process of unraveling the person you’ve become to reveal who you really are?

Your answers to these questions will help you uncover your true self:

1Who are you really? Would you love to dive into that intellectual part of you that you’ve ignored over the past years? Maybe you want to write the great American novel or see the world. What do your innermost feelings and thoughts tell you about who you really are?

    • Think about the times when you’ve been happiest. These are great clues to learning who you really are. What made you so happy? Where were you? Who were you with?

2Are you truly happy now? When you look closely, do you feel joy about your life? Or do you feel like all you’re doing is trying to keep up with your neighbors, friends, or family rather than doing what you really want?

3What do you want to be remembered for? Cultivate your thoughts about what you want to be doing with your life right now. By fulfilling your hopes and dreams, you’ll be remembered as the person you want to be.

4.  What are your top three dreams? Answer this question quickly, without thinking too hard. The first answers that come to mind are probably correct. Have you achieved these dreams yet? If not, are you working toward them at least a little bit each day?

5.  What do you plan to do with your life? Contemplate this question to help you discover what’s really important to you. Let yourself get excited and develop a joyful anticipation about what you’ll be doing next in your life.

  • You’ve heard the saying, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” However, the builders of Rome did have to make progress every day. Re-focusing on what you truly want and setting up your daily life to stay on task will move you closer to your goals and reveal more about yourself.
  • Think about what you must do today and tomorrow to move toward fulfilling your hopes and desires. When you really want something, knowing that you’re coming closer to it each day will, in itself, bring you increased happiness and excitement for your future.

Answering these questions to unearth your true feelings at least once a year is a good idea. Doing so will help you stay on track in terms of having the life that you truly want.

Revealing the real you is an exciting journey that will fill you with great joy and satisfaction. And who doesn’t want more of that?

Day 4 – Productivity Killers and Myths

Are you one of the millions of people who simply want to find just a few more hours in their day to finish a task? What would you do with an extra hour sleep? Relax with friends? Or work more in your business? Whatever it is, learning simple strategies to become more productive is the aim of this challenge.

Productivity killers

What Kills Productivity? We all have the same 24 hours in a day, yet some seem to get way more done than others. In this section, let’s take a look at a few of the more common productivity killers. These can be killing your productivity in either your personal or business life.

Killer #1: Too much on your plate is one of the top productivity killers. We take on tasks even when we already have a full plate. Often times we do this because we are confident and overly optimistic. We believe we can get everything done or maybe we just haven’t learned to say no to those things we really don’t want to do.

Killer #2: Which leads to the next killer: You don’t know how to say no. By spreading yourself too thin, your quality of work, your health and your sanity often suffer. Taking on too much, filling your plate with every request made of you, can be overwhelming and cause you to not get done half of what you normally could.

Killer #3: Not getting enough sleep can kill your productivity. I’m not telling you to get 10 hours of sleep. Everyone’s body is different. But research says most people need 7 to 8 hours to be fully rested.

Killer #4: Not getting enough exercise can kill your productivity as well. Physical activity keeps your mind healthy as well as your body. Just a simple walk around the block can clear your mind so you are ready to start on a task when you return.

Productivity is key to getting things done. Learn more about productivity killers and myths, listen to the training audio here  http://stme.in/01WP2tfZz.

Refreshing Myself Part 2 – I Deserve To Be Happy

October 18, 2014 2 comments

Refreshing Fruit

Today is Saturday and I have decided to not focus on my car, because it is repaired and I have it back now. This weekend is my refreshing myself weekend. Before I close out the year strong I am going back into my own teachings to see what I need to refresh my life with.

I found a lesson affirmation from one of my “Got To Get Myself Together Challenges” called “I Deserve To Be Happy.” Here is an excerpt from it.

I Deserve To Be Happy

Everyone deserves to be happy and successful, including me. I know that happiness and success are things that I create in my life. So I purposely take certain actions that facilitate my happiness and success.

I also focus on the good things that life has to offer rather than spending my energy bemoaning my challenges.

I am a good person. I do many fine things. I am kind, generous, and I work hard. All these things contribute to the joy and fulfillment in my life.

I deserve to experience great happiness on a daily basis. I am certainly worthy of it. I remind myself of all my blessings on a regular basis and find it easy to experience happiness.

Even if happiness and success try to elude me, I know that I can catch them. I have all the ability I need. I have all the talent I require.

Success and happiness are mine!

I see success over and over in my life. I use my past successes to provide confidence now. Success and excellence are a part of who I am.

Today, I take positive steps to ensure my happiness and success. I spend time doing things I love to do. I surround myself with loving people. I renew my commitment to my goals. And I deserve to be happy and successful.

My encouragement: I have the talent I require.

Seven Key Points on the Power of Words – FREE TELECALL

FREE TELECALL JUNE 26

FREE TELECALL JUNE 26

 

One of my favorite scriptures is Proverbs 18:21 which says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” The Message Bible makes it even more clear – Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.”

Words have great power, especially those words that you are using every day.  Most people underestimate the great power of words. Just a single word can make a person’s day or even shatter it. Words can destroy and they can also build something. Your words can create a great impact on the lives of other people and your own life. The words that come from your mouth can make a great change in the lives of other people.

Your voice is powerful! Has God given you a message that can transform the lives of those who hear it? Are you unsure about how to shape your message so that those who hear it will be impacted by the power of your words? Are you feeling a little nervous about the power of the words God has entrusted to you.

Don’t worry! Take a deep breath! God has assigned me to help you with your assignment.

I would like to invite you to join me on June 26, 2014 for my “free” 60-minutes tele-call on “Seven Key Points on the Power of Words.” On this call I will teach you seven key points on the power of spoken words. The words you speak can cause great happiness, enlighten a soul and heart, or encourage people. The words you use today and how you use them can essentially determine whether you will succeed or not.

It’s time to get moving toward getting your message out to the masses in a creative and big way. But first, you must understand the power of spoken words.

GTGMT 28 – Tell The Truth

January 29, 2014 1 comment

 

Have you ever come across the type of person that you felt you just couldn’t trust for some reason? You didn’t know exactly what it was, but he just wasn’t on the level. Or how about the type of person who always has a story, it’s just not a story you believe. Most of us have come across those types – they’re easy to spot because they’re obvious. The truth is, though, we all have some “masking” in us.

As we were growing up and forming our ideas about how to act safely in this world, we all began to wear masks in varying degrees. We say and do the socially acceptable things, and we defer to people in authority over us, no matter what our age. We’ve been doing it for so long and it’s so automatic, that many of us have no idea what we really think or feel. We do it because we don’t want to be rejected by others and because we’re not so sure about ourselves to begin with.

These masks keep us safe. They also imprison us. All of our “shoulds” and “have to’s” and “ought to’s” obscure who we really are. Some people are afraid of repercussions if they decide to be more authentically themselves. But authenticity is not a license to be boorish, and most people know that, so fear of repercussions is invalid. A few people may be threatened by your authenticity in and of itself, but more people will probably welcome it, and studies have shown that the more authentic you are, the more authentic people you attract.

The more people trust themselves and are comfortable with themselves, the more authentic they become in what they say and in their behavior. The more people give up their masks, the more they can explore and celebrate their real self. This releases all the energy that went into maintaining their masks so that it can be put into celebrating their lives.

Do a little investigating into what you think and feel. Is an authentic? Is it working well for you? Is it time to replace those old thoughts and feelings with more authentic ones, ones that represent who you really are. 

We are all changing and growing all the time. Choose the beliefs, feelings, and values that are real for you now. You will be freer, more alive, and happier.
