Choices – Inspiration and Motivation

Sometimes life throws us curve balls that are unforseen and it is during these times that we can easily lose our faith, hope and passion.    Experience has served to teach us that during these especially challenging times we need to find that which inspires and motivates us.

The the words from Patrick M Power’s Everyday Wisdom  is sure to re-ignite your belief  in your dreams and aspirations.  The underlying message in this video is to believe in your potential and that basically there are only two things that create your dreams:

1.  Your choices

2. Your committment to those choices.

Empower Yourself – through weightloss

How do you empower yourself through weight loss?

Quite simply any action you take to direct and control your life or a situation in your life  begins to empowers you. When you make deliberate choices to improve your life, to take positive action or steps to make changes where your health is concerned, and in this case the choice to lose weight, it rids you of the old thinking patterns that kept your weight on in the first place.

Dr Wayne W Dyer talks with Ellen DeGeneres about his new book ‘Excuses Be Gone’ and also shares his own personal experience about his own  ‘excuses’  about the excess weight he was carrying around- some 15-17 extra pounds of extra weight.

And Dr Dyer initially made all kinds of excuses for why he had this extra weight.  He considered it to be ‘ man weight’ or the ‘age factor’ ( something that happens as a result of being a certain age).  Dr Dyer continued to keep this weight until he began to challenge those underlying thoughts and beliefs that he had about his excess weight.

Dr Dyer outlines that we use many excuses for our choices such as:

  • I’m too old
  • I’m too fat
  • It’s going to take a long time
  • I’m too scared
  • It’s going to be difficult

This is just a pattern of thinking that is so ingrained into our psyche that it is difficult ( but not impossible) to change or re-program our thinking.

If our thinking affects our life then ” what we think about expands”.  So the key here is to make better choices in what we think! 

I have been on the journey to lose weight and it is all of the above as Dr Dyer mentioned.  It’s difficult, its a lot of work, it’s effort, it’s about being consistent, disciplined and very focused.  Most of us are in the ” hurry up brigade’ and want to lose it right now and without it costing us anything. 

In putting in a substantial effort and being consistent with lifestyle changes as well as changing our thinking ( and this includes getting rid of all the excuses that we can’t do it and replacing it with why we can and the benefits of it) then we become empowered. 

Begin your journey today and empower yourself through weight loss!

How To Consciously Choose The Life Of Your Dreams

Everything in life is a choice and your spiritual growth depends entirely on the choices you make and the spirituality information that you immerse yourself in. The key to creating the life of your dreams is to begin the process of understanding how important it is to be conscious and aware of the choices you are making and whether those choices are serving you or not.

Relativity tells us that you can’t know something as an experience until you first come to know its opposite. That is the purpose of the theory of relativity and all physical life.

That is why we have this other beautiful, magnificent and glorious ability in our lives called choice. We get to choose whatever it is that we desire. We can say “the devil made me do it” all we want, but the ultimate reality is that we make a choice about every decision we make in our lives.

Now comes the important question. Are you making your choices consciously or unconsciously? Really think about that one. Remember we are thinking up the life of your dreams here.

Are you thinking consciously or unconsciously? Think about that, consciously.

Right now you are reading this article. You are fully in the present moment. Your mind is engaged. Your brain is processing the data. You are in a conscious endeavor to improve your life. Right now you are thinking consciously, but what happens when you stop reading this article? Are you going to go over and turn on the idiot box and watch the next generation of a “reality show?” Are you going to mindlessly subject yourself to the commercials that tell you to go out and buy the next best version of the useless material possessions that already fill your cupboards and closets and your life?

Is that what you call conscious living? Does that serve you? I’m not making judgments here; I am just making observations. It is entirely your choice as to what you fill your days and nights with. I just want you think about what you are thinking about because that is the only way that you can begin to think consciously.

If we are saying that life is a process, and we are, then we want to be awake and aware of that process. You can only do that if you are conscious that life is a process and then consciously aware about how the process works.

That’s why you are reading this article. To understand the true nature of how things work. This is a conscious endeavor, which takes some concerted effort, but the rewards and riches that await you are worth the undertaking.

We are not thinking about short-term gratification. We are going for the long haul, the big picture, the effortless life that awaits us when we wake up to this clarion call to consciously view life as a process.

Telling ourselves that “the devil made me do it” isn’t going to cut it anymore. You can only use that excuse when you are living unconsciously. Remember we are changing the way we are thinking and thinking different thoughts. Thank you Albert Einstein for telling us that you can’t change your current situation by thinking the same thoughts that got you there. You must change the way you are thinking and think different thoughts.

Start the process of consciously being aware of your current situation and the begin to consciously make choices that open up different avenues of thought that have the potential to create the life of your grandest dreams and aspirations.

Sunscreen Song

This is a song by Baz Luhrman ( Director of the movie “Australia”, starring Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman). It came out some 14 or 15 years ago and it is a sensible message that points out how silly it is to worry about life. 

I was inspired by this song when it aired on the radio and after listening to it, it made me realise that we worry about ‘small stuff’ and usually about stuff that never quite eventuates anyway.  It is about our life’s journey- what is important, what is not.  About guilt, love, jealousy, how to treat our fellow man, respect, all the maybe’s and maybe nots, choices we make, choices we don’t make, fear, living, dying and on and on it goes.

My favourite line is ” Do not read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly”.The moral of the story is this:  At the end of the day, you only need to worry about ONE thing- whether or not you put enough sunscreen on or not!

Enjoy!
