Choose Beliefs that support where you are going in life.

Choose Beliefs that support where you are going in life.

What are beliefs anyways?

Beliefs are simply thoughts we keep thinking nothing more, they are not "The Truth" they are just something we told ourselves often enough, until we started to believe them.
Over our lifetime we accumulate many beliefs, some that support and help us and others that hurt us.
I find that the beliefs that hurt us the most are some of the beliefs we have about ourselves.
So how and why would I hurt myself?
Let me give you a little example : many years ago in your childhood someone said to you "You are so disorganized" or "You will never be like...",or "You are just like ....." so you hear statements like this a few times and then you start looking for evidence to support that statement, and of course because when you are looking for something you'll find it, you keep noticing evidence of that.
Little do we know that all we need to do is just stop affirming that to ourselves and start looking for things that we believe are our strengths.
If you are on the wrong track, all you have to do is STOP and find a better track.
It is in your hands and in your best interest to empower yourself my friends, or you can keep doing the opposite.
So what do you choose starting today?

If what you are doing isn't working the way you want it to work, don't be afraid to change it , start approaching it a little different.

If you want to do better this year than you did last year, you must choose thoughts and beliefs that will take you in a different direction, right?

So, starting today, compliment yourself, use superlatives when you think and speak about yourself, choose beliefs that support where you are going in life.
It is in your hands and it is up to you.

How are you doing on that?

Life is an opportunity, capture it!

Life is about choices.
There are two ways to start our day. We have a choice every day the moment we walk out our home to go one or two directions.
We can be the person determined to have a good attitude because you know that if you have a great attitude you can be with people that treat you with dignity and respect and care about you or we have the choice to be negative, angry, mad and hostile.
The choice up to us.
We choose what attitudes we have right now. And it’s a continuing choice.

It's Wednesday morning, 5 AM Ottawa Canada snow storm (-?°C) i didn't even dare check the temperature, I'm on Twitter (one of my favorite places for inspiration) as well as TV turned on - news are coming in, updates, warnings - and most of us still at home comfortable, warm (some even grumpy/no caffeine yet :) or irritated about the storm and the mess is about to start), and I really started to think about it : here they are, a dedicated group of people that make a choice to be our inspiring guides at 5/6 AM everyday and throughout the day, to bring their good positive attitudes and their creativity into our lives, to do it with a smile on their face, be uplifting and set a good start of the day for so many of us.

Dedicating this blog post to you, all media - TV, Radio, News papers - special thank you to the ones i interact with on Twitter and keep me updated about Ottawa events and good music - @CTVCanadaAM , @neilhedley , @AMorningOttawa, @ErinLannan , @daytimeottawa , @EZBreakfastShow , we appreciate what you do everyday, we appreciate the fact that you leave so many people with a feeling of increase and a positive start of the day, you make it easier to start our day with a smile and a good attitude.

Most important lesson - you teach us how we should start our day :)

Choosing your Attitude /The Power of Thoughts

If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you like to win, but you think you can’t,
It is almost certain you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost,
For out in the world we find,
Success begins with a fellows will,
It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed, you are,
You’ve got to think high to rise,
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can

Enthusiasm and belief can achieve more in a day than reason can accomplish in centuries.

To all of you for a very successful 2011.

Don't wait for others to treat you better, treat yourself better.

Everything you see is a reflexion of your own Mental Attitude towards yourself.

Taking responsibility for your attitude, your behavior and results is probably the most important step on your way to improved Results in all areas of life.

When you focus on the negatives about a person or a situation - you are in the same vibration - in the same energy, that is the reason you notice what you notice about that person or that situation.

Every change in life begins with awareness and responsibility, you can not change your circumstances by blaming anybody or anything. Right?

Don't give your power away. If you blame, you allow others to control how you feel, to control your results in life.
When you blame you loose, you set yourself up for failure.

If I hear people say to me : But you don't understand she or he did this to me, or said this.....
My short answer is : Yes I do understand. But, does that change the situation in anyway? I guess your stuck then, aren't you?

People are so focused on proving how right they are about the situation they are in, they never get of that track, therefore they don't see they have choices.
You do have choices, lots of choices.

If you want to change your results, if you want to be a winner in life you must take responsibility for your actions, for your present results and your present circumstances.

How do you begin?
Ask yourself, what can I do different? How can I change my own attitude?
What beliefs/habits do I need to change? What behavior do I need to change?

Then go out and do it different, take responsibility for your results in life. Don't wait for others to treat you better, treat yourself better.

Empower yourself my friends. First and best victory is to conquer SELF.

How are you doing on that?
