Are You Feeling Worried?

When our thoughts are lost in worry in can be helpful to focus our mind on something else. Prayer is an excellent solution as it focuses our mind on God.


It focuses our mind on all the times that things worked out for the best.


It can be hard when your in the grips of worry to think about anything else but this is exactly when  you will feel the biggest benefit.

Overthinking Kills Your Happiness

DI 003

All worries fall into two categories, stuff you can do something about and stuff you can’t. We all spend too much time and waste too much energy attempting to change what we cannot change. It is a major cause of stress and frustration.

If there is somethings you can do, do out a list and get to work. If there is nothing you can do, forget about it and move on, and i good way to doing that is just get busy. Get involving in doing something that take all your attention.

 

What Would You Do With $86,400 A Day?

Its not hard to find people complaining. They will complain about standing in line, about the price of food, and what there goverment is doing or not doing.

It is much harder to find people that are actively working towards making a change. We all have 24 hours a day, and what we do in that 24 hours determines our destiny, and the destinies of those around us, so choose wisely.

Have a great day.

Make A Commitment to your Crazy Dream; It Could Change The World

Just do it is probably one of the most recognisable slogans there is. It is a direct command. Sometimes that is what we need. Someone to say,  just do it.

I can only speak for myself, but I often think about doing something for weeks or even months before I start.

We all have things that we would like to do, things that would improve our mental and physical health, but we talk ourselves out of it with excuses.

Starting is the hardest part. Attending that first meeting or making that first phone call, or puting them running shoes on for the first time. Once that is out of the way though, it’s so much easier to follow through.

So, whatever you have been putting off for weeks, months, or even years. Take the first step today. Send the email, make the call. Invest in some running gear. it could be as simple as getting some information.

What holds most people back is they get a burst of faith and decide to climb a mountain before they have walked a mile.

 

I will use weight as a relatable example.

If you want to lose 10 pounds, eating nothing but salads and milkshakes is not a good starting point. You might keep it up for a week, but chances are you will crash and end up upset which will lead to binge eating and ending up heavier than before.

Instead, start by replacing the slice of cake with a handful of nuts and an orange. Park the car 10 minutes away from work; a few small changes like this will get better results.

Then, when you see the improvement, it will give you the faith that you can do better. So, you slowly cut out unhealthy foods and replace them with healthier options.

Most challenges that we face can be broken down into a series of steps. And when you do this, the challenge seems more manageable; fearful thoughts change to thoughts of faith, which in turn shift to feelings of accomplishment when you start completing each step.

Now, instead of a vicious circle of fear leading to worry and doubt, you have a circle of faith, expanded awareness, and peace of mind.

Whatever is the main thing that is holding you back take the first step today, just do it. And remember that one small step forward is better than staying where you are.

Enjoy your week.

The Power Of February

ONE-beautiful-sunrise

Many people think that when January is gone, there goes the new year resolution for another year… but this is not the case.

Studies have shown that decisions made in February are the ones that last for the rest of the year.

Maybe its the long stretch in the evenings or the brighter mornings.

We all have unlimited potential within, but if you don’t have goal-directed people around you, you will not get very far.

People that encourage you, people that want to listen, people that want to hear your opinion.

Make 2019 the year that counts, the year that you can look back on and say, that was the year that changed everything.

Work on your faith daily, even if its only a short prayer. Take regular walks in nature and feel the wind in your hair. Connecting with nature can help in so many ways, relieves anxiety, depression and helps your fitness too.

One of my favourite quotes is, “It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.”

Make some decisions of faith this week, park the car 10 minutes away from the office or take a walk to the corner shop.

Stick a sticky note on your laptop or back of door, somewhere you will see it often— of the person you want to be.

Say a short prayer, “thank you Lord for all the small things that I take for granted.” Often throughout the day.

Fulfilling your divine destiny is a marathon, not a race. It’s many small steps that over time will get you to your destination.

I believe in you. Take a step of faith today.

Thanks for reading. Enjoy your week.
