Happiness is Contagious !

Did you know that Happiness is Contagious?

Did you realize that Joy can literally extend from person to another?

Are you feeling great today?

You may end up spreading the joy to someone you don’t even know at all. Now how cool is that?

Taking control of your own happiness can positively affect others, did you know that?

We get this chain reaction in happiness that increases the odds in terms of us trying to shape our own moods and make sure we have a positive impact on the people we love most!

Happiness spreads among people, like a bonfire from one to another. That means when you feel happy, a friend of a friend of a friend has a slightly higher chance of feeling happy too.

Each happy friend increases your own chance of being happy!

I read somewhere that "you can not be happier than the least happy child".
What is truly amazing to discover is that when you replace the word ‘child’ with any other name the sentence is still true.”

If you have a lot of connected friends or a wide social circle, you are more likely to become happy.

NO you will not become sad if you do not have a wide circle of friends!

What was the term? Smiling faces, going places......

Enjoy Life

See the Magic that surround us everyday!

I am completely convinced that 2009 is without a doubt our year !
And since it's already mid January, let's get going, what is stopping you?
What ever it is You are planning to do this year, I'm convinced that You are going to be Brilliant !

Just Do It!

Jumping right in can be terrifying, especially if you feel like you haven’t spent enough time on preparation. But the amount of knowledge you’ll gain along the way by ‘doing’ will far outstrip any knowledge you could get from books and planning. We need to stop waiting for the perfect moment to take action, whether it’s having enough time, money, resources, contacts, etc.

Let's face it,the absolute perfect moment is never going to arrive. It’s going to be challenging and uncomfortable at times, but you’ll be much further along and wiser than if you had never tried at all.

From the day you where born , you were absorbing information.
You learned a so many attitudes, beliefs and practices around such things as money, love, food, stress, communication, work, etc. And all of this learning was unconscious.By the time you where 7 years old you simply started to model your parents.
That is great if your parents where (are) successful and happy with their life's. Some of their life patterns have probably served you very well, while others have not. Each generation want something better for their children. That is life!

Did you know that the majority of people experience fear on a daily basis, monsters that are stopping them from achieving the success they deserve and are not even aware of it? With the economy monster breathing down our backs, many of us are feeling the insecurity and fear even more.

In conquering my own monsters, I am now dedicated to spreading the knowledge I gained along the way.
It is all about lifestyle - creating one where we can ...
quickly and easily deal with the challenges that come our way.
Break through the negative patterns that keep our drama alive.
Find ways to be joyful no matter what is happening and truly achieve the success that we all deserve.

The point I'm trying to make is.........that you want to move forward towards greater success, happiness and inner peace.
You can consciously harness your thoughts to propel you towards your personal and professional goals.
The first step would be to identify the skills, characteristics or patterns of thinking and behaving you would want to improve.
You may want to work on your confidence level and perhaps leadership.
You might want to improve your health and well- being.
You may need to concentrate on how to manage you finances.
Or you could use some help with relationships.

You may know people whom you totally admire and look up to in each of the areas you would want to improve. their background does not matter at all. Try to be around and learn as much as you can from these people you admire. Just make sure that these people have the same core values that you have. If they don't, this exercise would be futile.

From now on no more negative self talk!
Be aware of your words, do you really mean what you say?
Focus on all the great things in your life right now and stop complaining. Pretend that you are living the life you want and deserve to live right now.

You are a future Millionaire!

Here is a way that you can become more positive. Thinking is very important, you need to know what your triggers are, it could be almost anything. Our emotions are very important, when you think happy thoughts chances are that you will be happy, same would be with the other side of the coin, if you are having unhappy or sad thoughts you will most likely be unhappy and sad, that is such a negative emotion. If we get to that point, it is time that you change your thinking!
Sit down and meditate ( previous post) think about positive thoughts or events. Begin a journal. Your life will take on a rosier view, when you do this. Life is so much easier when you are up-beat and happy!

For every angel fluttering through the skies, there is a divine counterpart here on earth. Each of us has a golden celestial self just waiting to be awakened. Give the angel within you permission to emerge in expressions of loving thoughts and kindness.

Law of Attraction

Does the name Helene Hadsell ring a bell?

She has an outstanding gift of being able to manifest anything she desires into her life -- by "choosing" to win specific contests.

She's won trips to Europe, kitchen equipment, cars, made appearances on TV and in the most remarkable case -- she won a house in a lucky draw that 2 million other people took part in. She's also won beauty contests, healed herself from a near-fatal accident and published a book that sold 3.5 million copies.

She claims her remarkable ability has nothing to do with luck -- and everything with mental focus and controlled thought.

Sure we all would like to win whether it would be the 649 or anything at all. Do we give winning any thought at all? Or do we keep asking for the same thing over and over again. If the only thing your mind is doing is transmit and transmit some more the Universe–which is trying to respond–can’t give you a single thing because you’re not allowing yourself to receive! Focus on what you really want and you will get it!

Allow yourself to receive.
Just think of your desires and leave it out there, go away, and trust that your cup will be filled with gold coins :)or just to be healthier :) when the time is right.

Be patient with yourself.
Receiving takes time.
Many people will try to receive for a little while because they have decided that if the Law is not working after a few day's or weeks, it’s never going to work at all.
However think about this one thought,everything in this world has a natural development time.
So relax and be patient. Remember that you too, as part of the Universe, are also governed by the laws of the Universe, and you cannot change the natural development time.

Support and educate yourself.
Seek and be hungry for new knowledge. Make an effort to be amongst people or communities where you can support each other, learn from each other, and also share new knowledge that you have found.
While the Law of Attraction is not an overnight delivery service, it will indeed deliver, if you do your part too!

In this crazy world, anxiety may always be there to test you. But you have the power to choose how you react to it. Being more self aware is the way to gain power over your reactions that create stress.

To become more self aware, start practicing meditation. If you already meditate, start teaching someone else. This will deepen your practice. By practicing meditation, your self awareness will develop and that will help you master your reactions to anxiety and worry; the culprits of stress.

It will take some discipline to develop a consistent meditation practice. Know that you can achieve this, if you really want it. The only thing required of you is the commitment to make it happen.

Imagine getting restful sleep every night. Imagine waking up refreshed and invigorated, ready to "go for it". Visualize how you would feel, and how much more you would enjoy each day. How much better would this make your life, just by itself?

Light a candle, empty your mind and gaze at the flame for 5 minutes, or longer if you are comfortable with this way of meditation. Concentrate and do what you must to keep your attention on the flame. When you have made a commitment to meditate, try to meditate at least once per day. Twice a day would be better.
Keep your focus inward on your breath, relax and don't let your
thoughts wander all over the place.
Being an observer of your breath is really the only thing to do.

Every fiber of your being is aware of your breath. You’re relaxed as
deeply as you can be and subtle shifts in your breath brings you further into your meditation.
After a few days, you will be deepening your meditation practice. The ability to detach from the thoughts and be an observer of your breath is a style of insight meditation.

Stay committed and devoted. You will achieve inner peace.
Rest assured, it will be become a simpler experience!
You will begin noticing that you are more alert, able to
concentrate longer, and not feeling as tired in your
normal, regular day. These are some benefits from practicing meditation on a daily basis. Remember to focus on your breath, detach from your thoughts, and notice your bodily sensations.

Deep relaxation exercises, will help you control your focus, discover the power of your mind, and keep your inner state passive and quiet.

Tomorrow you wake up looking forward to your new day and welcome it with open arms. Things start to look a little brighter. You notice that you have more energy.

May your life get better, better and better!

Did you make a New Year's Resolution?

Are you sticking with it?

January is the time of year that many of us make New Year's resolutions.
Statistics show that by the end of January, at least half have abandoned their resolutions and by the end of March, up to 90% have given up.

It really does not have to be this way.

Before we can make any changes in our lives, we have to accept that we and we alone are responsible for our lives.

If we are responsible for something we don't like in our lives, then we have to respond. We have the ability to change how we respond to it and we certainly can can choose to do something differently.

Key's to your Success:
#1 Be committed.

The biggest key for achieving our goals is that we have to be committed! Write down all the reasons why or what you want to change. What is happening or not happening in your life that you don't like, because of this challenge?
Imagine and write down all the ways your life will improve as you start achieving your goal.
There’s no need to set goals that don’t make you stretch. You want to be proud of yourself at the end of the year–and how can you really be that if you just did what you already knew you could do?

It is very important to have what you want clear in your mind. A great way to go about this is to write down what you are getting by doing whatever it is you want to change. To set goals you need to know what you want–and deep down we all do. Think about it–you don’t have to ask a child what twice what they want. This is one of the most important steps you can take.

There are always pay-offs for the things we do, even negative things, or we would not do them.
If you are not committed enough to write down the reasons why you are doing or not doing, what you want to change, you will never be committed enough to make the changes needed.

Key's to your Success:
#2 Create a realistic plan.

You need to come up with a realistic plan to help you achieve your goals. Most of us have unrealistic expectations and put too much pressure on ourselves. Basically we set ourselves up for failure.
If you don't stand up for what you need, then you are allowing circumstances to dictate what your life is going to be like. There is always a way, if you are committed enough!
The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.

Key's to your Success:
#3 Be prepared for setbacks.

You have to be prepared for setbacks and when they happen, consider them a learning experience rather than an excuse to forget or dump your goal. Don't think of these hick-ups as complete failures, don't dwell on them and don't let them give up your goals. Just get back on that track of yours to reach your objective. ( It was only a hick-up).
After a set back, examine what was going on in your life to cause you to lose focus and plan ahead what you will do the next time you are put in a similar situation.
We fail to take responsibility for the fact that how we process an event is what leads us down the path to feeling angry and upset. How we process the event is the cause. We need to learn how to process information differently, in a more positive light.

Key's to your Success:
#4 keep track of your progress.

Reaching goals will usually takes time and often we don't see results as fast as we would like to see them. Unless you have a way of tracking your progress, you won't know if you are actually accomplishing your goal.
This is where a lot of people get discouraged and quit.
Tracking, either through charts, graphs or keeping a written record will show you at a glance, if anything is happening. What are going to do today to make tomorrow better?

Remember, you make your own luck!
