10 things you should remove from your self talk. Day 1!

1. “I’m not good enough.”

You might think you’re not good enough, but you’ll surprise yourself if you keep trying. Your past does not determine who you are. Your past prepares you for who you are capable of becoming. What ultimately defines you is how well you rise after falling.

Don’t ever be afraid to give yourself a chance to be everything you are capable of being. Forget the haters. Never undervalue who you are and what you’re capable of.

Excellence is the result of loving more than others think is necessary, dreaming more than others think is practical, risking more than others think is safe, and doing more than others think is possible.

2. “I should be living up to other people’s expectations.”

Remember, it’s always better to be at the bottom of the ladder you want to climb than the top of the one you don’t. Happiness and success is all about spending your life in your own way. Always be yourself and walk your own path. No one can ever tell you you’re doing it wrong.

Everyone has their own dreams, their own struggles, and a different path that makes sense for them. You are YOU for a reason.

If you end up living a boring, miserable life because you ignored yourself and instead listened to a parent, a teacher, or some person on TV telling you how to live your life, then you have no one but yourself to blame.

Just remember, the smartest and most courageous act is simply to think for yourself and listen to you own intuition. In the end, it’s better to die your way, than live someone else’s idea of your life.

Tip 10 for Happiness…

Tip 10… Stop being ungrateful!

Not all the puzzle pieces of life will seem to fit together at first, but in time you’ll realise they do, perfectly.

So thank the things that didn’t work out, because they just made room for the things that will. And thank the ones who walked away from you, because they just made room for the ones who won’t.

No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life. Someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs.

Instead of thinking about what you’re missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing.

Everyone, and I mean everyone has bad stuff happen in their lives, it’s how you deal with it that makes the difference!

10 minutes at the beginning of every day think about all of the good things that you do have in your life and feel the emotion of that happiness and you will find more of the same coming your way.

Tip 9 for Happiness…

Tip 9… Stop trying to be someone you’re not!

One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself in a world that’s trying to make you like everyone else.

Someone will always be prettier, someone will always be smarter, someone will always be younger, but they will never be you.

Don’t change so people will like you. Be yourself and the right people will love you, and you’ll love yourself more too.

Being independent of the good opinion of other people is the fastest way to happiness!

Tip 8 for Happiness…

Tip 8… Stop living in another time and place!

Some people spend their entire lives trying to live in another time and place.

They keep on about what has been, what they could have done, or what might become. However, the past is gone, and the future doesn’t exist. No matter how much time we spend thinking and lamenting about either, it doesn’t change anything.

One of life’s sharpest paradoxes is that our brightest future hinges on our ability to pay attention to what we’re doing right now, today.

We need to live more in the moment. Living in the moment requires active, open, intentional awareness on the present. Don’t fantasise about being on holiday while at work, and don’t worry about the work piling up on your desk when you’re on holiday. Live for now. Notice the beauty unfolding around you.

Its not rocket science Einstein!

All the time you are living in the past or future you are MISSING right NOW!

Tip 7 for Happiness…

Tip 7… Stop running from your problems and Fears!

Trust me, if everyone threw their problems in a pile for you to see, you would grab yours back.

Tackle your problems and fears swiftly, don’t run away from them. The best solution is to face them head on no matter how powerful they may seem.

Fears, in particularly, stop you from taking chances and making decisions.

They keep you confined to just the small space where you feel completely comfortable. But your life’s story is simply the culmination of many small, unique experiences, many of which require you to stretch your comfort zone.

Letting your fears and worries control you is not ‚Äòliving,’ it’s merely existing
Bottom line: Either you own your problems and fears, or they will ultimately own you.

Tip 6 for Happiness…

Tip 6… Stop criticising others!

The negativity you bleed out toward others will gradually cripple your own happiness. When you truly feel comfortable with your own imperfections, you won’t feel threatened or offended by the imperfections you see in other people.

So stop worrying about the flaws you see in everyone else, and focus on yourself. Let the constant growth and improvement in your own life keep you so busy that you have no time left to criticise others.

Tip 5 for Happiness…

Tip 5 Stop talking down to yourself!

Nothing will bring you down quicker than berating yourself. The mind is a superb instrument if used right, but when used incorrectly, it becomes very destructive. Be aware of your mental self-talk. We all talk silently to ourselves in our heads, but we aren’t always conscious of what we’re saying or how it’s affecting us.

As Henry Ford once stated, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.‚Äù One of the major causes of why we fail is due to self-doubt and negative self-talk. The way to overcome negative thoughts and destructive emotions is to develop opposing, positive emotions that are stronger and more powerful.

Listen to your self-talk and replace negative thoughts with positive ones, over time you will change the trajectory of your life.

Tip 4 for happiness…

Tip 4… Stop trying to control the uncontrollable!

If you try to control everything, and then worry about the things you can’t control, you are setting yourself up for a lifetime of frustration and misery.
Some forces are out of your control, but you can control how you react to things.

Everyone’s life has positive and negative aspects – whether you’re happy or not depends greatly on which aspects you focus on. The best thing you can do is to let go of what you can’t control, and invest your energy in the things you can – like your attitude.

Tip 3 for happiness….

Tip 3… Stop trying to avoid change….

If nothing ever changed there would be no sunrise the next morning. Most of us are comfortable where we are even though the whole universe is constantly changing around us.

Learning to accept this is vital to our happiness and general success. Because only when we change, do we grow, and begin to see a world we never knew was possible.

And don’t forget, however good or bad a situation is now, it will change. That’s the one thing you can count on. So embrace it, and realise that change happens for a reason.

It won’t always be easy or obvious at first, but in the end it will be worth it.

Tip 2 for happiness….

Tip 2… Stop blaming others and making excuses….

Stop blaming others for what you have or don’t have, or for what you feel or don’t feel. When you blame others for what you’re going through, you deny responsibility and perpetuate the problem. Stop giving your power away and start taking responsibility for your life.

Blaming is just another sorry excuse, and making excuses is the first step towards failure; you and only you are responsible for your life choices and decisions.

PS I still have 1 space left on my next Mindset Course!

10 Things you must stop doing to be happy.

Over the next 10 days I’m going to give you ten tips on things that if you stop doing them will help you to be happier!

Tip 1…Stop procrastinating with your goals!

Some people dream of success while others wake up and work hard at it. Action and change are often resisted when they’re needed most. Get a hold of yourself and have discipline.

Putting something off instantly makes it harder and scarier. What we don’t start today won’t be finished by tomorrow. And there’s nothing more stressful than the perpetual lingering of an unfinished task.

The secret to getting ahead is simply getting started. Starting, all by itself, is usually sufficient to build enough momentum to keep the ball rolling. So forget about the finish line and just concentrate on taking your first step.

Say to yourself, “I choose to start this task with a small, imperfect step.‚Äù All those small steps will add up and you’ll actually get to see changes fairly quickly.
