Beware Of What You Ask For

Moments TO BE

Today we want to talk about manifestation and why we must be careful with what we ask for.

Let me give you an example:

In every single workshop I do I ask people what they want from life. I ask it in different ways but one of the first answers I always get is “I want more money.” If the group is not too large, I usually go up to that person and hand them a dollar or another small denomination of the local currency and then tell them to go home because they got what they came for.

Strange enough, they are never in agreement with me 🙂 “No, that is not what I want at all. I want a lot of money.”

Wake up!!! This is just as vague und unspecific as I want more money. Can you imagine that a lot of money means soemthing different to Bill Gates or Warren Buffet than it does to you and me?

You need to be crystal clear on what you want before you ask for it or you  might be deeply disappointed in the results you are getting.

Make sure that what you ask for is what you truly want!

Namaste!

Know WHAT you want

Moments TO BE

Today we will talk about what you want from life. Did you know that over 90% of the population in the western world does not have a clear direction in life? I think this is a massive problem because how can you expect to ever get “there” if you have no idea where “there” is for you?

How to Motivate Yourself

Motivation is not something that comes naturally to us, at least not in tough times. But those are the times we especially need to be motivated. However, motivation is key to many human activities. For one, you cannot simply sit back, relax, and watch your deadlines fly by if you want to get anywhere in life. You need to take action and to do that it helps a lot when you are motivated.

So what are the best ways to motivate yourself?

  1. Know what exactly it is you want. What are you motivating yourself to do? Do you merely want to finish a job, or do you want to live your dream life? Set clear and tangible, or at least manageable goals for yourself. If you know exactly what you want, you can get it, and you can motivate yourself to do whatever it takes.
  2. Live a a life of purpose. The problem with a lot of people is that they work hard but they don’t know what they work for. Often they are simply working for the money but that will only motivate us short term. You need to know the reason why, for what purpose you want the money. Give yourself a tangible purpose so that you can know what you are really working for. Striving for money is an empty goal; striving for money so that you can get your dream home might be more tangible; striving for more money so that you can help your family or a cause of your choice will be even better.
  3. Take a break. Sometimes, being burned out means that you need to stay away from things for a while, have some time alone to yourself, and get an outsider’s view of your situation. When you start getting fatigued more often, your body might be telling you to slow down; and slowing down can mean re-energizing yourself by taking a vacation, or even just taking a walk. You may want to set aside some alone time each day for you to recharge, so that you are not constantly being barraged with work.
  4. Don’t be afraid to say NO when you already have “a full plate” Sometimes, you can have so much to do that you are saturated with stress, and you reach the point where you simply want to give up and not even start working – you feel overwhelmed. Take a deep breath and delegate even if that seems impossible when you first do it!
  5. Reward yourself for a job well done! Plan out a trip for yourself, or promise to take yourself to the movies of your favorite restaurant if you complete a certain job. Little rewards, such as snacks and a cup of hot chocolate, will work too.

Over all BE NICE TO YOURSELF AND TREAT YOURSELF WITH RESPECT even when things do go wrong at times.

First and Most Important Step to Success

The first step is

KNOW WHAT YOU WANT

That sounds easy, doesn’t it?

How is it then that over 90% of people do NOT know what they want???

When I first realized that I was really shocked but it was also a great revelation because it showed me the No. 1 reason why people do not live their dreams and why so many are unhappy and frustrated with their life.

If you are not clear on your destiny, on your destination, how can you expect to ever “get there”?

This is a serious question you need to ask yourself.

DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GOING WITH YOUR LIFE?

Imagine getting into a taxi and just tell the driver “Go” without giving him a destination. He will probably drive you around the bloc a few times until you run out of money and you end up frustrated because you spent money and time but got no-where.

This is unfortunately what I see all around me. People are working hard but still not getting closer to their own dreams, not really getting closer to feeling fulfilled and happy and they wonder why.

In most cases it is because they are very fuzzy about what they want. They have not taken the time to become clear on that. They take every day as it comes without clear direction and many are surprised that they move from opportunity to opportunity without getting the desired results.

You need to be clear, crystal clear on what your destiny, your purpose, your passion in life is. In my book “To be or not to be – the choice is YOURS!” I dedicate 3 chapters to this because it is that important and I want to make sure EVERYBODY gets there.

But until you are ready to get the book let’s start with a question:

Imagine you had all the money you could ever need and could do anything you wanted to, knowing that you could not fail, what would you do?

………………………………………………………………………. (write it down)

Now ask yourself if what you wrote would give your life more meaning…

If YES, why aren’t you doing it – starting today?

…………………………………………………………………………………

If NO, why would you want to do it in the first place?

…………………………………………………………………………………

Give these questions a few moments of thought:
What is my life all about?
Who am I?
What do I want?
What are my dreams?
What is my idea of an ideal life?

This is just to start you on your journey but believe me, KNOWING WHAT YOU TRULY WANT is the first thing you want to become clear on. Otherwise all your efforts might be in vain.

I go further into this in the first chapter of the TO BE book and I recommend you make that tiny investment and get yourself a copy.
