You are a product of your own actions and the actions of those around you. We do not live in a vacuum. We all are influenced by each other. We all can help or hurt those around us. It is a choice. We all rely on each other, even when we don’t admit it.
Happiness comes from within, it comes from contentment, gratitude, and being present. If you are present in the moment and appreciative of all you have, then your happiness will naturally flow. The only person you should try to be is the best version of yourself. Your current happiness will always be crushed by comparing yourself to others.
Setting minds free to explore through encouragement and creativity is the foundation of great innovation. When energy, purpose, and positivity are combined with action better results will always be coming.
In order to focus properly, you need to gain control and discipline. Attention management is the practice of controlling what you focus on. It is a deliberate practice of aligning your values to your actions.
When you are free to be yourself, every aspect of your life will improve. What is inside of you is so much more powerful than what is behind or the to the side of you. Focus on your potential and you will find the greatness that is in front of you. You don’t need to do what others do, you don’t need to be what others want you to be. The worst way to spend your time is wishing your life was someone else’s. Each minute thinking about the life you could have is a minute wasted. Create your own life and don’t worry about anything else.
Comparison is dangerous because it leads to envy and jealousy and is the enemy of gratitude. Since you don’t know what others are going through, stop judging their results. Everyone is on a completely different road.
Exactness is not up to us to define, yet it is there for us to find.
We all know that when we obey the truth, our life is better. We obey for different reasons. Fear, reward, love. We also learn to obey in different ways. Right away or after failed approaches. We learn what to do through a variety of ways as well. Revelation, reading, intuition, etc. And the good thing is, obedience doesn’t mean weakness, it is the opposite. It proves we are strong enough to make a decision that shows grit and resilience. It shows we are looking toward the future rather than so focused on today. It is the difference between gratification and satisfaction. To gratify is selfish and immediate, to satisfy is long-term and often has a deeper purpose. Our mission is to find the truth and obey that truth.
Creativity seems to come out of nowhere. The reality? It comes because we have been thinking and working on solving the problem for a long time, but our subconscious just needed time to process all the information. Once it is finished, the light and flash of inspiration always strikes, often out of nowhere.
Happy Birthday, Cobi! The most creative person I know.
When you think about your fears, you only enable them. People need to feel connected, they need to feel worthwhile, when you think about others you begin to enable them as well. Whatever we think about becomes empowered. Think more about others to help everyone feel connected.
