This quote is so true. How you treat others is a direct reflection of how you feel about yourself. When you are happy with yourself, feel great about yourself, you know the importance of taking care of yourself, eat well, exercise, all the things that are so important to keep your health and your physical condition. Be kind to yourself. Take the time to enjoy life, and do the things that makes you happy.
And, when you feel good about yourself you automatically also will treat others with love and respect. As you do with yourself. When you meet someone being rude or treat you bad in some way, you can be sure that they are not feeling good about themselves. So, instead of taking the rudeness personally, try to see it as it is. A mirror reflection of how they feel themselves. And then it gets so much easier to not be affected of how someone else treats you. Let it pass. And instead, try to see if there is anything you can assist or help the other person with, how can you get the person you meet to realise and understand the importance of starting to treat yourself in the best way? And get into the same mood as you, instead of the other way around.
Take the time to clean out any mess in your life. If it is your relationships, your messy wardrobe, some paper piles you need to go through, throw away or archive in some way. Some things to be taken care of that you keep postponing.
Just decide to do it. Take some time every day to clean out the mess, an hour or two, and keep doing it until you are done. If it is a relationship, take the time to solve these issues, once and for all.
To be able to say check ☑️ on your messy parts in life will make you feel so much lighter, so much happier. To get rid of the mess in your home, in your thoughts, in your mind, will do magic for you. Like a cleansing breath of air.
To make other people feel good is the best way to develop and build relationships with others around you. Take the time to listen when other people talk, really get to know them, understand what they like and dislike, what are their interests, what does their life look like? Be interested! Ask questions and listen to what they tell you. Show others that you care.
When I go to buy take away dinner at my local restaurant the man taking the order always ask me if I need something extra. Can he serve me some coffee while waiting? Can he offer a real plate or fork and knife to borrow even if it is take away food? Trusting that I will return with it after using it. And being real friendly, showing that he cares for his customers. This really makes me feel good, and I will for sure return again, and again, and again.
To make other people feel good, to leave them in a better mood than when you met them, is the smartest way to build a good and strong relationship. It is key to how you build a successful team, a business or a strong family, or a friendly relationship. Also, it will help with your personal development. So go make someone else feel good today!
It is when you connect your head with your heart that you really get balance in your life, and in your soul. This morning I went up at 5, (you can read more about the 5 AM club by searching on the site for the tag the5amclub), and started with some Yoga with Adrienne. Today it was a session called Up your connect, talking about connecting your head and heart. Yoga is about placing your head and heart in line, and being aware of this in your different poses, to connect through the spine, all the way in your body, from feet to the top of your head.
Besides the physical yoga practice, this is also about connecting your head – meaning your mind, your thoughts, with your heart – meaning your emotions, your feelings. When head and heart are aligned, synchronised, you will feel a balance in your body and your soul, and get a happy, positive attitude that will help you tackle the everyday life situations and challenges. Being stronger and more balanced within.
Every week has a new fresh start, the Monday morning. Not only the beginning of the day, but the beginning of a new week full of possibilities.
Start the day with exercising, yoga is my choice, then take the time to reflect and listen in to how you feel, starting this week. Think about what you want to achieve and focus on during this week, maybe set an intention. What positive things do you want to fill it with? What new things do you want to learn, what experiences do you want to get?
How can you make this Monday the start of the best week you ever had? 🙂 Do you have any tip or advise, please comment below and share. Thank you.
Wish you the very best week ever. Take Care. Namaste.
What words you use in your everyday life matters a lot. Think about not using negative words but positive, winning words. Words that lift you up and elevate those around you. Even when things get tough. If your team or your family are facing challenges. Do not mention them as a failure, but as a possibility and an opportunity to learn and to do or experience something even better.
What words do you use most frequently? Start making a list out of the words that you use most frequently. Are they the words you would like to use? Are they the words that will help you to be your best self and to lift others? Then make a new list the words you would like to use. Choose the most positive and powerful words you can think of. And start changing your vocabulary. Step by step. Start talking like a positive person, always. Being aware of your language is the first step.
The language you use and the words you choose determine the way you feel and how you see things. So start by looking at the glass as half full, and not half empty!
When you are faced with a challenge, you get the question from someone else to do something new, something you have never done before. Or, you want to try and learn something new yourself. If it is the crow pose in yoga, learning a new language, or changing a tire on your car instead of asking for help. What is the voice in your head telling you?
That I have never tried, I most probably cannot do it.
That I have never tried, I am sure I can do it!
You see the difference. Just by letting your inner voice tell you: “You can do it”! will increase the odds of your success immensely. Whatever you decide you want to do, it is possible. Do not limit your possible experiences and learnings by thinking you cannot. Change your mindset, think positive and you have already increased the likelihood of actually succeeding by a lot! People having this mindset are the ones reaching the goals. Try it next time you face a challenge, or you just get a question to do something you have never done before, and see what happens. Nothing is impossible. The impossible just takes a bit longer to achieve.
Do you know what you want to get out of life? Have you made the work of really finding out what your goals are in life? Your personal as well as your professional goals. When the time is up, what do you want to have accomplished?
Once you have defined your goals you can start making the plan on how to get there. You can make both short and long term plans. Start with the long term goals and then divide them into smaller pieces. For instance, you set a 10 or 15 year target. Then you make the plan on what to do each year or every other year. For the current year I would divide into quarters, months, weeks and even days. So you are really clear about what you need to do, step by step, to reach your long term goal!
With a plan like this you will really increase the possibility of getting things you want and reach your goals. Go for it!
Why should you get up early in the morning? A quote from Robin Sharma “be wise, early rise”, meaning when you get up early you have the time to do your inner work, your time to develop, to do the thinking that is so important, and to keep focusing on your goals in life. To exercise, to reflect and to grow. To inspire your head, heart and soul. Taking the time every day to get in a good physical condition, to take the time to reflect on how you want your day to be, and to grow by reading a book or other that educates you, and make sure you learn something new very day.
So, try to win “the battle of the bed” and get up early. Maybe even join the 5 AM club. You can read more about this by searching for the 5 AM club in the blog and in the Source of inspiration page her on my blog. Try it for a while and see what happens! Take the challenge and you will not regret it.
Do not let what other people say affect you too much. When getting a nice compliment, welcome it, enjoy it, but do not let it get into your head so that it influences your actions and decisions too much.
In the same way, a hard word or criticism, you should not allow it to get into your head. Do not let it affect you negatively. Maybe there is a reason behind the criticism that you are not aware of and that does not have anything to do with you. But you accidentally get in the way when someone else is having a bad day. So do not make too much out of this if there is really not a good reason behind.
Either way, compliments or criticism, this can affect the way you talk to and treat others, if you do not pay attention. Some people are good at giving a lot of compliments and others are less skilled. When letting nice words affect you too much maybe you start favourising a person good at giving compliments and that can be dangerous, since you are then letting compliments get to your head. And do not treat people differently even if you get critic. Try to welcome it and see what happens. Criticism and feedback can help you to develop and increase your self awareness! Treat it as a lesson of life and try find the reason behind instead, to find insights and things to note for yourself in future. When changing mindset and not letting it get into your heart but treat it as a lesson in personal development, you can actually turn this into something good!
