If You Could Start Over Again

If You Could Start Over Again

What would you do differently if you could start all over again? So many people fantasize with the idea that if they could only go back and start again they would make different choices and do something different from what they are doing now.

You can’t go back in time, but you can actually do something about your situation now if you don’t like how your life has panned out so far. But the amusing thing is that people know what they done wrong and what they would change but they do not change anything, they will just live out the rest of their days complaining about the past.

Complaining does not help to change your life around, it is action. You have the capabilities within you to take charge of your life by identifying what you have done wrong and then you can correct your mistakes of the past by making wiser choices with the use of your days ahead.

The days that are before you are what will help to define how you live out your life, you can continue to live the mediocre life or you can step it up and be determined to succeed and make the last chapter of your life the blockbuster which your life should have been. Never dwell on the past, use it as a teacher to teach you what you need to do better.

You have the choice from today to shape your life in whatever way you want it to be. So what are you going to do? See what aspects of your life you need to improve upon, spirituality, health, family, dreams, personal development, financial freedom, and adventure. The major seven areas which demand your attention.

What areas are you not happy with? What areas do you wish you had the opportunity to correct? Now with the answers in hand, set your goals, deadlines, and plans to amend these areas of your life. You can make the necessary changes needed within yourself in order to get better results.

Do not be fooled by the negative folk who have given up on themselves and have just settled. Throw the old script out of the window and rewrite one the way you want your life to truly be. Believe in yourself, you have within you the gifts and talents to accomplish amazing things, if only you would take action you would come to the realization that you are more powerful than you perceive yourself to be.

Let this be day one of a life that is lived fearlessly. Now is the time to embody ambition, determination, drive, hunger, persistence, personal growth, courage, adventure, ruthlessness, and a burning desire within you to make your dreams a reality.

Start to move in the direction you truly want to go, do not remain confined to a life of mediocrity, living life in a state of resignation. It’s time to step it up to new heights in your life. How many hours, days, months, and years have you wasted so far doing pointless things that don’t benefit your life not even one bit? Plenty, we are all guilty of throwing away our time like it is something which has no value, you must value your time to focus on those things that matter the most. Spend your time engaging in only the most important things that will benefit you, you have to reduce and exterminate the garbage daily activities and people from your life.

You must get serious about success if you want to develop your life to a higher standard by changing your thinking and changing your daily habits. These two aspects are what keep people stuck in the swamp of mediocrity, drowning slowly as a result of self-betrayal, and living a lie.

Is that what you have become content with? A garbage life that we are told to pursue, where is the fulfillment in living this sort of timid life? There seems to be none, work should be something that is an expression of who you are, rather than just assuming someone else’s life. Work can be that and even more if you design the life that you want to live and put in the work. Let not the lies of the majority fool you into being like them, you will be going against yourself, your greatness demands that you be who you want to be and live the life that you are capable of living. Give yourself approval to go forward in the direction you know within you that you truly want to pursue, most people are their own worst enemies, they build up a case of why things will not work out, the list of why it won’t work is endless, pages and pages of BS, you must start to build up a case of how you will succeed by saying, ‘How can I become successful?’ And the first thing you must do is believe in yourself.

Believe that you have what it takes because you do. Deep within yourself plant the seed of belief and keep on affirming to yourself every single day that you are destined to be a huge success. The time to start a new adventure has arrived, this shall be one with many ups and downs but you have the strength to ride the waves and reach the promised land. Hard work and dedication is what takes you from where you are to where you truly want to go.

“we cannot start over, but we can begin now, and make a new ending.”

How To Use Science To Awaken Kids Minds

How To Use Science To Awaken Kids Minds

Science can really be a wonderful gift to awaken children’s minds. We may think that science is simply a subject to be learned at school. But what we forget is that science isn’t limited only to school!

Looking around us, we all are in some way or the other using science in our daily lives. For instance, how our body functions is a part of biology; the pollutants in the air causing pollution is a topic discussed with the help of chemistry.

All in all, science plays an important role in our lives. So why not use science to awaken the minds of kids?

Children by their very nature are curious. They always wonder about everything. The moon and the stars in the sky arouse their curious questions.

Most children show a keen interest in acquiring scientific knowledge early on in life. If we, as parents and guides, teach them properly and answer their questions in a scientific manner, they will eventually learn to be inquisitive and excited about everything they see.

Experiments and building models are just some of the examples which take science out of the books. Science need not be limited to the classroom, but rather at home science activities can go a long way in keeping a child interested in the world around them.

Following are some ways in which science can be used to awaken the minds of children:

1. Science Begins At Home

Like every other good thing that needs to begin at home, including science into your kid’s lives must begin at home itself.

According to The National Science Foundation, parents are their kid’s first science teachers. Science for kids can be taught inside your very home and out in your backyard. All you need to do is to make them aware of it and fill their minds with wonder and curiosity.

2. Science Is All About Observing, Exploring, And Testing

Train your children to go for walks and to observe. Observing is one of the key practices to notice and take in all that nature has to offer you. Take along a magnifying glass and stop to pick up some interesting natural objects along the way such as flowers, a few blades of grass, rocks or stones, and even insects.

Ask your child to look at them with the magnifying glass. You could also help them look up any creature or object on the internet or in a book when you return home and gather more information. Or you could set up a telescope or a pair of binoculars and as you lay out in the night, observe the starry skies. Viewing the sky is an easy way to introduce the study of astronomy.

3. Cooking Is Not Only An Art But Also Science!

Let your child help you cook. There are many processes that happen in the kitchen as you cook.

For instance, boiling water, melting butter, caramelization, baking etc. are some processes that could get your child interested in cooking.

4. Get Sporty  

Sports and hobbies are two other ways in which you could include science into your kid’s lives. If your child is interested in cycling, skateboarding, or rollerblading, explore how the wheels on their vehicle turn. This will make them think and provide you an opportunity to explain it scientifically.

If it’s baseball, talk about pitching and speed. If it’s football, find out why the ball is shaped that way. Dancers can learn about why stretching is important before dancing and about their body condition. Swimming is another activity that will make your children wonder about how a body floats in water, about gravity etc. Thus, they’ll start learning the laws of physics.

5. Build up something

Science and creativity go hand in hand. Spend time with your kid’s building or constructing something – be it playdough or building blocks or even building a periscope or constructing a model of the solar system.

Always be prepared to answer your kid’s curious questions with patience, truth, and wisdom.

6. Making learning fun!

Learning need not be stressful. Rather make their learning more playful and fun. 

You could use experimental toys such as physics gifts, biology gifts, chemistry gifts etc. which would help them not only in learning practically but also to broaden their mindsets. This will help their imagination to grow.

7. Ample Sleep

Do allow your children to get ample sleep every day in order to keep their minds sharp. Sleep deprivation often causes a dull mind and eventually slow performance.

So make sure your children go to bed early enough so that they can wake up on their own in the morning feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. A healthy mind depends on proper sleep and a nutrition-packed diet. A child needs around 10-12 hours of sound sleep at night.  

Conclusion

Make use of all sorts of materials to nurture your child’s imagination. The more they experiment, the more they will grow and the more active and healthy their minds will be.

The Pitfalls To Success: 10 Tricks Your Mind Is Playing On You

The Pitfalls To Success: 10 Tricks Your Mind Is Playing On You

Have you ever felt the moment of greatness within you? Maybe you got a brilliant idea for your own business. Maybe it was about a creative project, or anything related to your personal growth. But you didn’t act on time. You were excited about it for some time, promising yourself you’d make things happen.

As time went by you were left with a fraction of a memory, reminding you of the initial enthusiasm you had.

What happened?

It was all in your mind. It made you believe you weren’t talented enough, rich enough, or good enough to make your dreams a reality. It made you give up.

Isn’t it time to prevent your mind from stopping you from succeeding?

When you learn how to recognize the mental obstacles you’ll stand strong against them.

So let’s list the symptoms that indicate your mind is undermining your success.

1.Overwhelming Anxiety

When you don’t know what your future is going to be like, it’s normal to worry.

Let’s say you’ve come to the decision that you’re going to leave your 9-5 job and become an entrepreneur. It’s a big change that pushes you towards uncertainty.

In small doses, stress motivates you to try harder to direct everything on the right path.

But when anxiety becomes overwhelming you start worrying so much that you’re petrified. And you don’t make that change.

You have to recognize this situation and calm down. Yes; the future is uncertain. But a good outcome is a realistic possibility. You just have to work for it.

2. Harsh Self-Criticism

No matter how much you achieve, you’re never satisfied with the results.

You convince yourself that you’re not good enough to reach a higher level of greatness, so you simply stop trying.

Stop! Look at what you’ve achieved so far. Maybe it’s not absolute greatness, but it’s something.

You can do more! You can!

3. The Negative Seed Of Limitations

You: I don’t have enough time for this.

Your mind will play that trick on you, for sure! But why don’t you just try?

Why don’t you make a plan that is aligned with your most important goals?

One step at a time, you’ll make progress. Whatever goal you try to achieve, the least you can do is try and make time for it.

4. Negative Attitude

You: I’ll start practicing yoga from tomorrow morning and I won’t miss a day.

Your mind: You can’t do that. Yoga is hard and you’ll quickly get bored.

This is not the type of attitude you want to allow. If you’re constantly negative about the goals you want to achieve, you’re preventing any kind of progress in your life. You must have the right attitude in order to succeed.

5. Thoughts Of Failure

You: I’ll try to do a handstand today.

Your mind: You’ll fall. You’ll fail.

You: I’ll start my own business.

Your mind: What if it fails? Or you haven’t got enough skills for that!

Failing is always an option but remember: it’s not the only one. If you don’t try, you’re failing for sure. You’re failing to achieve the potential results. That’s the worst outcome of all. Take action.

6. Conformism

Are you always trying to please people and deliver what they expect? That’s not a good mindset to have if you’re aiming towards professional and personal growth.

Can you think of a great leader who’s a conformist? Of course not!

Great people distinguish themselves by unique thoughts and inventions. That’s the kind of person you want to be.

7. Being Dependent On Approval

You’re finally ready to start that business, but you’re worried about your partner’s or your parent’s opinions?

Do you rely on their support too much? That’s not okay.

It’s good to have support, but when their negative attitude stops you from doing something great, it’s a huge obstacle. Don’t seek approval. If you’re sure you want something, go for it.

8. Being Comfortable In The Comfort Zone

When you’re used to doing everything the same way, your mind gets used to that comfortable state of being.

You do things automatically and you lose your creativity.

If your life has become like that you have to snap out of it. Do something different! Try something new! Live a little!

9. Zero Vision

Sometimes you know you want something, but you don’t know how to get there. You envision yourself as a successful business owner five years from now, but you have no idea how to start and how to go through the journey that takes you there.

That means you lack vision. It’s okay; you can overcome this obstacle. Just find out what you have to do to achieve your goals and make a plan that takes you there, step by step.

If you need extra education to gain knowledge and skills, start working on it without wasting a single day. Your vision within your mind takes form with consistent action

10. Being Overwhelmed By Change

Achieving something great usually means making a change.

If you don’t like your current situation and you want to elevate your life to a higher standard, it means that you need to make a major change in your life. If you’re bored by the town you live in, moving is a huge step into the unknown.

Repeat after me: change is good! If you don’t change, you’re practically not growing. You don’t want to stay in that same spot forever, do you?

Takeaway Message:

Don’t let the obstacles within your mind stop you from becoming successful.

It’s time to stand strong so that you don’t just settle for a life that is less than the one you deserve!

“To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.” 

Buddha

What You Think About Others Does Impact How They Behave

What You Think About Others Does Impact How They Behave

People can impact you profoundly, positive people positively, negatively people negatively.

I have seen how important it is to surround yourself with people who believe in you, your abilities, and your potential to grow into the person you know you can be.

If you spend major time with negative thinking people who think you’re dumb or stupid, and not good enough, those thoughts somehow get implanted into your brain, on a subconscious level, there is a mental blockade from you growing, and the only way to grow is to let go of these people.

Once you get away from negative thinking people, you start to see clearly, mentally, and their poison leaves your mind, and you feel like you can see again, like you have Awakened, you start to believe in yourself to a greater level, and you wonder to yourself, why was I like this when they were around me?

It is not easy to tell what others think of you necessarily, but one way is to see how you feel around certain people, if you feel empowered, able, faith, and believe in yourself, then they are good signs that these people are good to associate with. Whereas on the other hand, when you are around certain people, you may feel disempowered, unable, fear, and doubt. These are the people you need to get rid of from your life.

It doesn’t matter who the person is, whether they be family, friend, work colleague, and so forth. You have to make sacrifices for success. You will never go to higher places in your life if you surround yourself with people who do not see the greatness within you.

It is of utmost importance to surround yourself with those who believe in you. Do not take this message lightly. Who you spend time with is who you become. Toxic negative thinking people can actually influence who you become and the life that you live.

Once you eliminate the negative toxic people from your life, your life will move to a whole new level. You will never grow with toxic people around you, they lack belief in themselves and they lack belief in you, and they hold themselves back and they hold you back.

So the main message here is that you should never think negatively about others, as you can impact their mind and their life. Always believe in others, but most importantly believe in yourself. What you think of others does reflect the beliefs you hold about yourself.

Many people try to instill their doubts, fears, worries, and limitations upon you because they are cowards, they don’t take action, they don’t try, they don’t do anything  different, but all they do is make assumptions based on nothing, and they expect to fail, how crazy is that, people predict the outcome of failure before they have taken action.

Surround yourself with those who take action, those who believe, those who have faith, those who want more than average, those who make you feel that you too can live your dreams. Life is too valuable to waste time with people who make you feel as if you are not good enough.

Find the ones who do not just see you for who you are but who you can become. Always seek to grow, always push your limits, this is one way to rid yourself of the dead weight, those who are on a lower level mentally will be left behind.

Rise up within so that you can rise up without.

Believe in yourself, and your abilities, never let anyone make you feel like you are not special, gifted, and talented. You have the ability to achieve more than you know. You may not see it now, but I see it, I believe in you.

Let your faith banish the fears that may be clouding your mind and come through to the other side, where there is a life of abundance waiting for you.

Share this with others.

Have a great day!
