How To Be Happy

Comments Off on How To Be Happy
Happiness will not be found where you are currently looking because what you think will make you happy will not. Happiness will not come from Losing a few pounds Gaining a few dollars Making it big Getting married Having the perfect body Having the perfect house Or more possessions So stop searching for something that can’t be found and start learning what you can do to become a happier person. Researchers have found that your life circumstances are only a small part of your happiness because people quickly adapt to positive changes in their life.

Changing Your Words To Reach Your Dreams

I have a question and it’s a pretty intense question – what would your life be like if you could take all the negative emotions you ever felt and lower their intensity so they didn’t impact you as powerfully, so you are always in charge? What would your life be like if you could take the most positive emotions and intensify them, thereby taking your life to a higher level? You can do both of these. Change your words and you will change your experiences and your outcomes. So If I change the following words, I can change their impact on me. For example: Change: Afraid to disenchanted Confused to curious Exhausted to recharging Failure to learning Hurt to bothered Hate to I prefer Nervous to energised Overwhelmed to many opportunities Stressed to blessed If I change the following positive words to...

Be Happy Before You Have a Reason

Comments Off on Be Happy Before You Have a Reason
“I am happy before I have a reason.” I wish I could tell you who this quote is from but I have no idea. Have you ever put much thought into what makes you happy? What do you need to be happy? What needs to occur for you to be happy? Have you realised that for many of us, our default state is that of not being happy. For some people their happiness is not dependent on them but on others. Some people feel that loved ones must prove their love constantly for them to be happy. Have you thought about the saying “What you focus on is what you get?” So if you are focusing on happiness, what happens? If you are focusing on not being happy, what happens? I am...

How the Words You Use Create Your Reality

The Power of Words “I know nothing in the world that has as much power as a word. Sometimes I write one, and I look at it, until it begins to shine.” ― Emily Dickinson Words … they have been used to make us laugh and cry. They can wound or heal us. They offer us hope or devastation. With words, we can make our noblest intentions felt and our deepest desires known. Words are amazing and yet we often just say them without thinking about what we are saying and the effect they could be having on ourselves or those around us. We use words to speak to others often we also use words to speak to ourselves consistently and constantly. Throughout human history, our greatest leaders and thinkers have used the power...

How to Improve Your Communication

Comments Off on How to Improve Your Communication
Have you ever taken the time to think of the words you often use to describe things? It is known as the way you habitually communicate. The way we speak and the words we use are often from habit. They are the ones that come to our mind without us even thinking. How do you habitually communicate with your kids, your work colleagues, your partner, your friends? Often we don’t realise the power of our words have on them. Children, as well as adults, tend to take things personally, and we need to be sensitised to the possible ramifications of thoughtless remarks. Think what could occur if instead of continually blurting out impatiently, “You’re so stupid!” or “You’re so clumsy!” – a pattern that can in some cases powerfully undermine a...

The Key to Being Your Best

Comments Off on The Key to Being Your Best
Have you ever thought about how you structure your day vs. how you should structure your day? A leading question, I know, asked to generate some thoughts. We actually all have a “prime” time or “golden” time during the day when we feel great. It is during this time that we should schedule our most important tasks. This is referred to as our energy cycle. An energy cycle is how your body functions throughout the day. You need to take note of when you feel good, when you feel tired, when you are just chugging along. Ask questions such as are you an early bird or a night owl? Listen to what your body is telling you. It is not always possible to have control over all your tasks or when...

The Secret to Having More Time

Time only needs ‘managing’ because we don’t seem to have enough time to do everything we want and need to do. In particular, we never seem to be able to ‘find time’ for those important but not urgent activities. Stop looking.   You’ll never find time. It isn’t lost. You’re living it. You have to consciously decide to live it in certain ways and not others. You have to make time by taking it away from one activity and giving it to another. Start Living Liz Cassidy   Action: What is most important for you to do this week? Make the time to do it.   It’s not about not having enough time it’s about it not being a priority.   Thank you and I look forward to sharing more tips, strategies and skills to support you to be more organised so that you too can create a better...

Using Your Power – The Power to Choose

Comments Off on Using Your Power – The Power to Choose
Have you been using your power to make the right decisions in line with your goals and what you want to achieve from life? Have you been thinking about what makes you happy? The power to choose is what gives us the opportunity to create a different life, right now! We, as an individual, have the power to choose. If we set a goal of health and fitness which means we exercise everyday, then that needs to become a priority. We have the power to choose what we do, that is, we choose to make the time to exercise. The entire goal setting theory will not work unless we accept that we have the power to choose. Remember don’t let age, life or other excuses get in your way. You don’t have to be...
