What if you could start every morning with a smile?

Two of the most important things for personal growth that I consider are meditation and reading. They both help me to be more conscious of things and be more in the moment. A brilliant byproduct of meditation is that it keeps you focused and makes you more productive. It’s not for nothing that most successful people say they meditate in one way or another.

Sometimes I lose track of the habit. The method I use is starting to do it again is doing it for 10 days in a row for ten minutes. After a while, it becomes natural. When meditation is not something you don’t do very often you can use an app as headspace or do a guided meditation.

Should You QUIT Your Job?

This Is The Introduction To The Video I Want People To See

I hope you’re having a great Day!

Today I want to share a powerful message from Joe Rogan. He says that torturing ourselves by doing the same thing over and over again, e.g. working for a boss we don’t like, is worth questioning. 

This is something I experienced before I started my entrepreneurial journey. To get what I was searching for, I had to look for new ways of doing things compared to before. 

Was it easy? Definitely not! Throwing ourselves outside of our comfort zones and into the unknown is always scary, but that’s the only place where the treasures we want can be found! 

Watch the video here.

 Have a great day!

~ Mel Robbins

The secret of energy clearing

“Maybe you can take life less seriously,” Eric said. Eric Dowsett is someone who can clear energy. He taps into the energy of my house or myself and can clear up what is not serving me anymore or has impacted me negatively. I can understand if this is not something you believe in but it helps me enormously: I feel lighter and my mood and energy improves big time. One of the most important lessons I learned is the use of language. Changing your language changes your mood and then changes your actions. For example, if you say: “I am depressed,” you identify with this feeling and you become this feeling. If you say: “This is the feeling of depressions,” it becomes a whole other story. At this moment you detach from it and you can start changing it. There is a good exercise to integrate this into your daily life. Say to yourself when you feel a certain feeling: this is the feeling of… Do this consistently and see what happens over time. I’m sure you will change for the good.

Feel lighter through clearing

Clearing is a way of being that allows information to exist, without judgment, without identification. A lot of people carry with them certain unconscious programs, without knowing that these programs are the reason that their energy is stuck in some way. If you start to get conscious about those patterns and programs you can start changing your situation. Clearing is a way of looking at things that changes our relationship to ourselves, others and the environment. If you start noticing shifts in feelings: stop empowering them, stop judging them. Then your body can start to change on a cellular level. For me, this is a way of seeing things that’s real. It helps me clear up the situation. And feel lighter. Although I need some help to do so.

4 ideas to be more positive in life

Lately, I noticed that I was thinking negatively more often. It could be that it is because of my business running less smoothly or because I don’t get the results I had in mind. The fact is that I put out messages that are not resonating with who I Am. I want to be someone who sees the sunny sides of things. So I started looking on YouTube and came across a video from Tony Robbins about positive thinking. He tells that the experience of being on a 7-days mental diet changed his life forever. The four points that hit me the most:

1)Make from your positive thinking a habit: the moment you catch yourself thinking negatively about a situation, think about what this situation teaches you.

2)Be curious instead of judgmental: if you are curious about someone you can see him in a different light. Maybe someone has a difficult day when he’s not greeting you with enthusiasm.

3)Make giving compliments into a habit. It will help you to see the positive in people. And as a result also into yourself.

4) Be good but don’t be perfect. If you want to be perfect the chance of failing is immense. So set your standards a little bit lower. you will succeed more and it will create a positive feeling about yourself.

So what I will do. The following 7-days I go on a mental diet. I will do the best I can to create a positive mindset. The first step in that direction is that I want to be thankful that I found the FREE Video Series that got me on the path of self-development. Feel free to watch them too. You won’t regret it. To finish I want to give you an affirmation that helps me the most: every day in every way I’m getting better and better.

This is how your passion starts working for you

Passion is not something you are, Mel Robbins shows in a youtube video about passion. Passion is the energy that you bring in everything you do. It is something you feel. So you can stop searching for it because it’s already in you. I agree with that. I was searching for my passion all those years. Thinking it was something outside of me. Another job, new interests, traveling to other countries, finding love. In that searching, I forgot about myself.

Passion is inside you and you’re in complete control of everything you do in your life. You choose how much energy you put in the things you do. That is something I found out after realizing that chasing a dream is not working for me. The moment I started creating my life. Doing things I love. Being with people that give me energy. Spending time to relax and meditate. From that point, I started living my dream. It had no fixed forms: I’m not a writer, I don’t live in a vila, I don’t eat in fancy restaurants. But I feel energized and do the things I love. I love my life actually. It’s not what you do, it is how you do it. Passion is how you’re living not what you’re doing. For me at least.

So stop searching for your passion. Look for the things that energize you and start living today. These are the videos that initiated my transformation. They showed me how to stop dreaming and start living my passion. Watch them too and see how your life evolves in the right direction. A life that is driven by passion.

The Fear Of Succes And How To Overcome It

Foto door Nathan Cowley via Pexels

Fear is mostly about something that is not going to happen. And if you worry you’re always or in the past or the future. It is a not helping strategy, that is not bringing you somewhere. Of course, it is easier said than done. Because worrying is a part of our nature. A part of our brain, the part that is in surviving mode, uses this to create an illusion of control. In a video from Carolina Antonia interviewing Dan Holloway you get an insight into how Dan overcame his fear. He gives an example of the glass bowl. if you could imagine a future in which you have achieved everything you want to achieve and if you were convinced this is gonna happen would you then be anxious, would you then worry so much? Or could you then be in the present and let go. He talks about trusting the universe and be certain of your success. Because if you will prevail there are only two choices or you die or you succeed. There is no other choice. If I look at myself self then there are a few things that keep me from not getting where I want: my lack of self-belief, the idea that I have not enough money, not doing what needs to be done. The things that help me to succeed are:

  • My persistence: I’m going forward whatever happens
  • My curiosity in what I do
  • The community of people I gathered around me with the same goal
  • The coaching I get that helps me to get my goals done

I got a structure in how to attain my online business goals by seeing these FREE VIDEOS. They gave me the right insights to get things rolling. I also was afraid that I couldn’t be successful but luckily I came to SEE the On-Demand Series you also have the chance to attain.

How to define your customer

Wow, that is how it works I thought after seeing the video of Dan Holloway. Now I know how to approach my ideal customer. Going from his fear to his fulfillment. Here I share what’s most important from my perspective or you can choose to see Dan’s video.

If you want to sell a product you have to ask yourself the question: what pain or problem does my product solve? How does it make the life of my customers easier?

First, you got to know the customer’s problem:

  • they’re trapped in an unfulfilling career
  • They don’t want to sacrifice their lives in the corporate rat race.
  • They feel trapped in their lives paying bills, getting up early, having no time to study

Then you must understand your customer’s deepest irrational fear.

  • they waist their entire life’s
  • They never see their kids growing up
  • The fear to lose everything 

The key is to understand their problems better than they understand themselves. Put yourself in the mind of your customers and feel what they’re feeling. And projecting that in a story in which you put yourself in an identical situation, but you came out with a solution.

If you master the previous things. The most valuable tool to understand this process is to talk to your customers. The more you understand their problems the more you connect to them. Then the question arises: what would your customer do to solve their problems. They say: I can’t do this another 20 years. What would they type if they go on to Google: 

…how to change careers…

…how to build an online business

…what are they reading and doing…

You start to see where they are in their process and you can meet them with a specific message. So you can position your product or service as the solution.

Then your building the right message at the right time and place and do that with the right intention: do it from a place of inspiration, not manipulation. Good intention is helping to create value. Bad intention is just making money.

Finally, get specific in your messaging with your ads. They want to buy the product that solves their problem, not eight different features that solve the problem of other people. One pain, and one problem you’re the solution for.

See Dan’s video on how to create the ideal customer. Or even better, do you want to know how he came to know what he knows now? Watch the FREE on-demand video series that taught him (and also me) how to market online. 

How to find your path in life?

“You can fail in what you don’t want. So you might as well do what you love.” – Jim Carrey

Finding your purpose, knowing what life is all about? Isn’t that what we all look for. This morning I watched an excellent movie from a speech Jim Carrey gave to some graduates. In a very inspiring way, he tells them how he found his way in life. And about his father’s part in finding that. His purpose was to free people from concern. That was what became his mission. We all can give the world something: what will they need what your talent can provide? We are so much more than our personalities, our masks and the roles we play in our lives. Who are we beyond that? Mind for the risk just to go for success. Because the ego will tempt us with the promise of something we already possess. We all have to take the risk of being seen in all our glory. Relax and dream up a good life. Watch Jim Carrey’s Commencement Address and feel inspired as I was…

What did it do to you? How does it make you feel about your purpose? My one is to allow people to grow in their lives. I found my purpose in blogging and building my own online business. It all started by watching the Free On-Demand Video Series from Stewart, my mentor. Key in this is dreaming up a good life like Jim Carrey already said. So why not go for it yourself and Watch the Free Video Series.

5 secrets of sleep you may not be aware of

We all sleep, but yet we don’t care for it and take it for granted. In an eight hour performance, Max Richter uncovers the hidden gems of it: the intimacy, the underlying emotions and the vulnerability that makes us human. This weekend at the International Documentary Festival I saw the film Max Richter’s Sleep about this undertaking. It made make think: do I care about my sleep enough? And do we all in general? These are 5 reasons why you should sleep more:

1) Your memory is improved. While you sleep you digest what you learned during the day. So if you learn a language in the morning you know it better than the day before.

2) Creativity is stimulated. While you sleep your brain directs more to the unconscious. This is the source of creativity. So it makes sense to sleep more.

3) Sleep lowers stress. Relaxation and sleep are very interrelated. It is said that sleeping lowers blood pressure. Even cholesterol levels are effected which plays an important role in heart diseases.

4) Sleep helps to reduce depressive feelings. When you sleep little depression can due to feelings of anxiety become present. That’s why a good night’s sleep is important for an overall feeling of wellbeing.

5) Sleep is important when you want to lose weight. Metabolism and sleep are situated in the same part of the brain. And when you are sleeping you tend to be more hungry.

I think I gave reasons enough to sleep more often. At least I am aware now that if I care more my life can be more peaceful. So whether it’s morning or evening I wish you a good night’s sleep.
