Weather Your Storms

What habits have you cultivated when it comes to your attitude about storms in your life? Are you set immediately in a panic, do you fret and worry, and begin to speak of all the dreadful “what if” possibilities that could arise from the storm, rather than look for the positive angle? Maybe it is time to start growing that inner muscle that says, no matter what, I have what it takes to weather the storms in my life, for they will come, and go, but I will be the factor that decides if I go with the storms or not.  Mah Mekolle

JOURNEY TO YOUR CORE: WINNING part 3

  1. The race is personal
  2. The prize is subjective
  3. The price is similar; effort/energy/sacrifice

No matter what race or battle you are in, for everyone this is a personal struggle and fight. Some people are in a race, fighting for their life on a sick-bed, they just had a traumatizing diagnosis, they need to win, live. Others are fighting for their loved ones, in prison, custody, race for time to save those in battle. Some races are for the sake of the dignity of a human soul, a race to gain back control of your life, freedom, you want to win at being you, without any restrictions or from some negative people in your life, you are in a race to learn something, learn to forgive, let go, move on, let in, love. Everyone is in a race to win, but each race is very different

The prize is subjective, definitely, what each person is fighting for has a different meaning at the end when they win. No two prizes will feel the same, the accomplishment of each goal means something different for each one of us

The price is similar, yes, no matter what race you are in, it involves energy, movement, action, and also sacrifice. Depending on what you want to win at, it will not happen without some level of action. So, ask yourself. You might want to win win win, but, do you know what race you’re in, do you have the tools for your journey, do you have help, a team effort, what prize are you playing or gunning for, and are you ready to do what it takes, sacrifice, put in effort and energy?

Thank you, I hope you enjoyed this short training on WINNING. If you did, please let me know and also share with you friends and social media, that they too can be blessed. Do not forget to leave your comments and for more questions, email me at pearlsofourlives@gmail.com

Be blessed, lead with you heart, and do your best. Enrich your life and the lives of others

JOURNEY TO YOUR CORE: WINNING – VIDEO 1

TOPIC: WINNING

As part of my company’s launch, I will be doing things a little differently from when I was just a blogger. As an official business dedicated to the continuous and consistent training and inspiration of hearts, I will start to teach on some topics that really resonate with me. I see myself first as an educator, as a student and as a conduit for the life lessons I have learned. Again, my joy and my goal, is that for anyone who needs a lifting, a leg up emotionally, spiritually, and mentally, that my blog may be a constant resource to support you in your journey to navigating the life you have chosen, more successfully. I also welcome direct communication and topic requests from you all, in order for me to be more effective in reaching you. There are more than a million topics on Self-development, reaching goals, and more, but if I can speak to your heart directly, then my work will be done.

Journey to Your Core: VIDEO – WINNING part 2

 

“No one wins a race alone, to win you need a team” Mah

In part two of the topic on WINNING, I spend 5 minutes discussing two main things, no matter what race you are in, no one wins a race alone, every winner needs a team! What race are you in, and who is on your team? Are you struggling by yourself, are you in a race that will take years to accomplish, which could have taken just a few months had you found a good team? How about, in the case where you are winning, who are you taking with you on this journey? Are you lending a helping hand to someone else?

Snip20150910_16

Now, please do me a huge honor and let your network know about these pearls of wisdom. This is a labor of love, and heart, and you are now part of my team. I can not reach the heights that I need to reach those who need my help with anxiety, grief, spiritual and mental growth, and help with living a more joyful life, if you do not assist me in reaching them.

YOU ARE YOUR THOUGHTS

YOU ARE YOUR THOUGHTS

Our thoughts are made up of a lot of things, some of which are intrinsically generated by our desires and deliberate action of thinking in a certain direction. However, these are not the only factors that make up the noise and activity in our head, our mind, and our heart. A huge percentage of our thoughts comes from input we get externally, all our portals and windows into our soul, our mind: the things we see, hear, feel, smell, taste, experience, encounter, and our instinct. We consume an enormous amount of information, data that is random and some, not so random. In essence, the totality of what we think is a salad bowl of more that what we desire to think about, is based largely on input. From that point of view, the true us, is really not reflected in the sampling of our mind. Yet, we are, our thoughts, and I will explain further.

You see, while we may not be the author of every thought in our mind, we have the authority to control how much external data we let in our heads, and how much of that information we allow to dwell and take residence in our head. We have the capacity to program our brains to work for us, to predispose us to a mindset of positive thinking, thus positive outcomes as much as possible, or we can allow the brain to be at the mercy of every passing data and for that data to dwell and morph into whatever interpretation or effect it wants. What we allow to take root in our mind becomes our belief system or has the power to influence what we put out through the same portals: what we say, how we act and react, and the energy we put out. What comes in, goes out.

My short video is intended to be a helpful tool in dealing with one of the ways we can set ourselves up for control of the data that comes in our head and how to react to it. START YOUR DAY RIGHT. A simple step, such as paying attention to your thoughts in the first 20-30 minutes of your day, is powerful in taking ownership of what disposition you want your brain to be in. You can decide for yourself, that although you cannot control the words and actions of others, you will control how your mind receives those experiences, and you will set the tone you want for your day. Enjoy the video, ask me questions and join to further the discussion. Think about these tips as you learn to start your day right:

– Wake up expectant every morning, determined to own your day

– Wake up grateful, there’s always something to be thankful for, like the breath of life

– Dedicate a few minutes of your 24 hours to map out what you desire for your life that day

– You’re your thoughts, for what you think, you speak & create. De-clutter your thoughts, you’re worth more than junk

REFLECTIONS AND MEDITATION

I love to ask myself questions, especially at the start of the week, which could also for most people be the end of the week. Sunday, is a great middle for me, that point between rounding up the last week’s activities, and getting ready for another week. Always, I make time to reflect, meditate and rediscover my WHY, WHAT and many other balancing questions. Today I will share a few enriching pearls on Reflection and Meditation. Use them for your reflections if you want, and share with others. When we learn, we ought to pass it on. Don’t forget to drop me a note, tell me what works for you and enrich me with other tips as well.

We must always start with identifying who we are
We must always start with identifying who we are

PEARLS ON WEALTH SERIES

In the grande scheme of things, when all has been shared,

when all the work has been done, man goes down alone,

man is buried alone, unless unfortunately buried in a mass grave.

Most people who have time to prepare for their death,

leave a will if they have anything of material importance.

However, for the most part, when time comes to say that final goodbye,

people look for people, not money, people.

They seek out relatives long-lost, they want to reconcile with friends,

daughters, sons, spouses and neighbors; material things don’t

seem that valuable when you’re impaired, sick, or dying.

The folly of youth is thinking there is time, the justice of time is knowing 

there isn’t any to waste. Make a connection with someone you know

that needs you, reconnect with someone you know you should never

have broken away from, if they are still available to make room for

you in their life. When it comes time for the closing of the eyes,

man goes down thinking of hearts, not gold, hearts.

Where is your wealth-building leading you today, what are you

investing in that will ensure you need not worry on your last breath?

who reaches for your hand? Will there be a hand to reach for? Wealth,

are you chasing the right wealth today?

THE DOCTRINE OF WEALTH- THE DESTINATION, THE ARRIVAL?

DP12

PEARLS ON WEALTH

Money, Money, MONEY, MONEY! Yes, it is all about the MONEY, do you find yourself thinking this way?  I HAVE ARRIVED; I AM HERE; I AM HAPPY; HAVE MADE IT, or so we are led to believe.  Our culture is built on individual’s status of wealth, and this symbolism is everywhere.  When did money become such a destination?   When did we forgot our initial purpose of providing for our basic needs and start focusing on the status of ourselves compared to those around us?

There are no rules of right or wrong in how we approach life, everything is subjective, there are ideal propositions out there and outlooks that seem to produce more ideal results.  Abraham Maslow’s phenomenal study on human motivation and personality is still one of the most popular theories in psychology and sociology today, where his hierarchy of human needs: Physiological, safety, love & belonging, esteem and self-actualization are exposed. When we are able to provide for the most basic, then we move on successfully to the next and are able to accomplish the next. Failure to succeed or achieve one level stunts growth in the next, says our competitive society.

In our world, we have the ideal process confused; When did money become so important? Are we starting to impose our mixed up views as ideal fact to the world?  For example. FACT: Unless you have diamonds and a flashy lifestyle, you haven’t arrived? Or, Fact, unless you LOOK like you have made it, you haven’t made it?

I have made it and I have arrived, but WHERE I wonder? What is this destination that even when we are happily in love, have a place to live, at least a meal or two a day, people who love our company….somehow , we still live like we are not yet THERE? Where is this PLACE that seems to rob our world today of the sense of accomplishment, unless there is FLASH at the end?  Thinking in terms of Maslow’s basic needs is where we refocus our energy and find there is no need to compare our self to others, but it is providing to our self the basic needs and finding joy in the love, happiness, and family in each step we take.

So, WHAT and WHERE is your DESTINATION? When you think of your personal “I have arrived…” be honest, what are you thinking of? When we are sitting on a goldmine, in terms of love, family, shelter, peace, and safety, with these basic needs met, we then can realize that I have Arrived, I am Here, I am Happy, and I have Made it.  Our comparison to others is irrelevant and it is within us we find our path to enrichment.
