Opening your mind up to the things you fear frees you from them

I don't know about you, but I've experienced a lot of fear in my life so far. I've also experienced a lot of things that feel a lot better - fun, love, satisfaction etc. There's no denying that life is a cauldron of emotions, thoughts and feelings - it's a right old mixture! I've had a tendency to want to avoid the things that don't feel so good, such as [...]

How Taking Action can Break Long-Standing Negative Patterns

I find it really easy to get stuck in a rut iin life. Doing the same things, seeing the same faces, watching the same TV programmes, reading the same books. It's really easy to fall back into what I'm already comfortable with. But there is a great deal of benefit to be had from trying new things, and being committed to undertaking certain actions that do not feel so comfortable, [...]

Slowing life down by processing what’s happened!

This is a really interesting idea that someone gave me recently, which has made a big difference. I commented that the last four years seem to have disappeared in the blink of an eye, and when I look back at them they're actually a blur. The guy I was speaking to is actually a professional in one of the fields of psychological therapy, though I wasn't having a session - [...]

When You’re Facing Challenges, Keep your Head Down and Plough Through

Morning all. For the past 4 years I've been working really hard. Going back to the start of that four years, I was in £30,000 of debt. I'd been spending far too much time on my own. I was depressed. I had no self-esteem. I was in real trouble. Then there was a moment when everything changed direction. I'd simply had enough of being in debt, of facing the daily [...]

Welcoming ‘Criticism’ – A Whole New Persepctive on Life

This post is again very much inspired by my watching Eckhart Tolle videos on Youtube. I listened to a video last night about accepting criticism or, for example, someone shouting at you. Historically I've found hearing criticism exceptionally difficult. However recently I've been giving regularly to various charities, and as a result my self-esteem is rising. Accepting criticism from someone without curling up into a shell and trying to hide [...]

Giving as a Means of Opening to life

Good Morning, Well, I'm finally putting it into practice: Save 10%, Spend 10%, Give 10%. I've known about this rule for about 10 years now, but I've never put this in to practice fully. I've done parts of it, sporadically, such as Save 10%. In the past I've found it easier to do the saving part as that involves no 'risk'. To give money away and spend it freely involves [...]

Challenging Stress – Is it Here and Now?

Morning, I've been ill recently, so have been taking it easy with my physical training - it's important to know when to ease back and give your body a break. Often a rest is needed to gather momentum for the next big push. I've also been feeling some stress over the last week. Work have been pushing me hard, and we're also in the process of buying a house. It's [...]

Humility, Hatred and Gratitude

Morning All, Bit of a different blog post this morning. While I was lying awake in bed at about 5.30am this morning, I had an insight which has been a long time coming. I've often felt this undercurrent in the past, that there's something about me that others want to seer clear from.  Not all the time - I have some really positive relationships, but nevertheless I've had this sense [...]

Keeping Life Simple – Humanity Working as a Team

Life doesn't need to be so difficult and challenging.  There's a common belief in self-development circles that challenges and difficulties make us stronger. This is a helpful belief, and it helps to empower us to a degree and take steps further forward.  But I'm not so sure this is actually fundamentally true. Once you find your rhythm in life - when you're dealing with everything as it arises and bringing [...]

Keep Pushing Forward. Never Settle

Keep pushing, Never Settle Keep Pushing, Never Settle Keep Pushing, Never Settle Keep Pushing, Never Settle, means you're always honing and refining your life. You're using every single moment to the absolute max. While you're doing whatever it is that you're doing, you put 100% focus on that and do it with as much quality as you possibly can. If that's doing the dishes, then you focus 100% on that. [...]
