How To Keep A Positive Mindset When It Seems Impossible

How To Keep A Positive Mindset When It Seems Impossible

In light of recent events here at MAP (MyAdvertisingPays), I really wanted to write a post on keeping a positive mindset during adversity.

Why? Because of you all! The positivity I’ve seen over the last few weeks has been so inspiring – now that’s the MAP (MyAdvertisingPays) mindset I’ve been talking about! Despite the technical difficulties, you’ve been lifting each other up every day.

But that doesn’t mean it’s easy. It’s inevitable that tough times will hit us here and there. That’s part of life. Sometimes it will feel like it’s too hard to stay positive and hopeful.

Luckily for us, resilience is something we can learn. So now is the time to teach ourselves how to stay strong in the face of adversity, and to cultivate that positive mindset day in and day out.

Resilience is a huge focus area in scientific research, so there’s a lot we can take from science – and collective experience – to equip ourselves better.

We’ll start with psychological techniques and then move onto the science. Let’s take a look…

How To Keep A Positive Mindset When It Seems Impossible

  1. Accept that we NEED to experience good and bad

These terms – “good” and “bad” – are only labels we put on those experiences. Everything can be seen as both good and bad if we are open to experiencing all of life. That’s something we all want, right? To discover and experience all the good in life? To do that we have to set aside the bad bits too.

Not getting what you want all the time is a good thing. Can you imagine a world like that? The person you would be? The kind of people we would all be?

We also need to be open to accepting it as it is, rather than trying to change or control it. If it’s happened, you can’t change it, so stop wasting time mulling it over when you can move on to the next good thing.

When you’re really struggling to take on this mindset, try practicing gratitude. Or even better – make this a daily habit. Write down five things you’re grateful for every morning. You might realise that you’re luckier than you think! This is a great mood booster when you’re already down.

  1. Trust the universe

I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. You might not be, and that’s okay. After all, our reptilian brains are wired to expect danger! But I do ask you to trust the universe. If you’re able to do that, life will be so much easier. That I can promise.

The purpose of the universe is not to serve you – it is to show you that you can serve yourself. You are capable of looking after yourself.

So how do you do it if you don’t know where to start?

Firstly, identify your limiting beliefs – what’s holding you back? I’ve written a post to help you do that.

Secondly, face your fears head on. Step into them! Great risks reap the greatest rewards. This is where the treasure is.

Lastly, this quote from David Cain of Raptitude offers great advice: “think a lot about what you want, and think only sparingly about what you don’t want,”.

Just remember, trust is a practice. So practice every day.

  1. Let go of the steering wheel

If you put self-imposed limits on life, you should only expect more of the same. Now that doesn’t sound like much fun. In fact, it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Actively let go of the steering wheel where you otherwise wouldn’t. Practice this. Practice taking risks.

If you’ve got your hands on the steering wheel, you’re going to blame yourself for things you can’t actually control. By acknowledging this early on, it will be easier to let go of things.

Go with the flow! When it doesn’t work out, you can give yourself a pat on the back for being brave. Save yourself the upset.

  1. Experiences make us stronger and richer

Let’s start with a few examples. Ten business ventures might fail until you finally find the approach that does work. Bad experiences within the family can bring you closer together. Travel, although life-changing, can be difficult, but the stories people return with make it worth it.

Even really terrible events make us more resilient. Have you lost a loved one? You may feel stronger emotionally for having had that experience and getting through it.

But why are some of us more resilient than others? Scientists say that there are key factors that make some people more resilient than others. These include having a strong social network (this might explain why our MAP family is so positive!), realistic optimism and having a mission in life.

I think it’s safe to say that all of us at MAP (MyAdvertisingPays) have a strong social network and a mission in life.

Optimists see a choice where pessimists don’t. Lead your life, don’t let it lead you. Write that down and look at it when things get rough. There is always a choice.

Resilience really is the crucial ingredient to a happy, successful life. So don’t forget to remind yourself of that every time you struggle to find positivity in something.

  1. Have a basic plan

If something bad happens, you might feel helpless. Take the power back by making a plan. Moving through the initial action-paralysis can make a world of difference.

Listen to your gut here. Is your plan going to involve something risky? Good. Sometimes you need to have nothing left to lose to make the big, life-changing moves. You’ll feel so strong and in control by taking risks, so listen to your gut.

  1. Stimulate your Vagus Nerve

Taking slow, deep breaths, for roughly the same amount of time in and out, activates your Vagus Nerve. This nerve induces relaxation – one of the best ways to kick a negative mindset to the curb. But even better than that, it has the power to re-wire your mind. I don’t mean that in a cotton-wooly respect either; your brain is plastic, so it can change in size and shape using bottom-up and top-down messages. The Vagus Nerve receives both of these things.

How does a single nerve do all this? The Vagus Nerve is the largest cranial nerve – it travels from the skull, throughout most of the body. A century ago, German physiologist Otto Loewi noticed that stimulation of the Vagus Nerve actually slowed down heart rate. It does this by releasing chemicals in your body to slow down your organs and heart rate among other things.

This is why deep diaphragmatic breathing – breathing from your belly – helps you to relax instantly. It stimulates the Vagus Nerve, which puts the breaks on your system! Not just that, but it activates the PNS, which influences involuntary actions and your mood. Vagus Nerve stimulators are actually used to treat treatment-resistant depression!

Have you ever been told to just take a deep breath and suddenly things don’t feel quite so bad? This is by far one of the fastest ways to relax and shake off negative feelings. Activate that Vagus Nerve! But deep breathing exercises aren’t the only way to do this…

  1. Try Meditation or Yoga

These practices also activate your Vagus Nerve.

Yoga poses, chanting and breathing all stimulate the Vagus Nerve.

Alternatively, Loving-Kindness Meditation has been found to increase Vagal tone, as has Om chanting.

But they don’t simply activate the Vagus Nerve; research has found that an incredible amount of physical and psychological benefits result from these practices.

Meditation for example has been consistently found to increase resilience, reduce illness, reduce mental/physical stress, assist with physical healing, improve creativity, focus, self-knowledge, clarity and problem solving amongst many others.

It’s safe to say that it’s definitely worth ten minutes of meditation a day!

Many of us try to distract ourselves and keep busy when we’re struggling with a negative mindset. Science actually says that we’re doing the wrong thing. You can be at peace with yourself without outside noise or distractions. In fact, it’s the only way. Distractions cause spikes of a chemical called Noradrenaline – which can lead to stress. That’s the last thing we want here!

Try practicing meditation or yoga to reap the benefits you won’t find elsewhere.

How To Keep A Positive Mindset When It Seems Impossible

Let’s cultivate this positive mindset day-in and day-out from now on.

It’s never too late to shift your expectations.

Which of these tips are you going to try? What helps you to keep a positive mindset when things go wrong?

Let’s share these in the comments to help each other!

Two of my previous posts will also help you to keep a positive mindset – my post on “how to tap into the power of your SUPERconscious mind” and “how to begin your spiritual awakening”.

Mindset of the Greatest: Muhammad Ali who died aged 74

Mindset of the Greatest: Muhammad Ali who died aged 74

Mindset of the Greatest: Muhammad Ali who died aged 74

Yesterday’s phenomenal London event was tinged with the sad news that the incredible Muhammad Ali had passed away after being admitted to hospital. For me and so many others, he came to represent and be a role model for the mindset of success: claiming himself, boldly, to be the greatest long before he ever was. Ali was both an astonishing boxer and an ever more astonishing human being. So funny, so interesting, full of life and unique too.

I have loved everything he has stood for since being young, and I know that the things I have learned from his life will continue long after his death.

The Telegraph released this video of inspirational moments and quotes.

Mindset of the Greatest: Muhammad Ali who died aged 74

But even as I watch and write, there is the sense that no words, no quotes can do justice to the profound effect he had upon not only the sporting world, but people outside of what would have been his usual sphere of influence.

I’ve studied the greats, I’ve followed and emulated those people who teach the mindset of success, and Mohammad Ali was right up there. He was a true blessing to humanity.

Mindset of the Greatest: Muhammad Ali who died aged 74 

Ali, who had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s at the young age of 42, was admitted into hospital in Phoenix, Arizona late on Friday with a respiratory problem. He had become increasingly frail and doctors feared the worst, placing him on a life support machine.

However, the man who claimed himself to be the greatest would prefer us to be left with this memory of him. In his own words, how he would like to be remembered:

“I would like to be remembered as a man who won the heavyweight title three times, who was humorous and who treated everyone right.

“As a man who never looked down on those who looked up to him…who stood up for his beliefs…who tried to unite all humankind through faith and love.

“And if all that’s too much, then I guess I’d settle for being remembered only as a great boxer who became a leader and a champion of his people. And I wouldn’t even mind if folks forgot how pretty I was.”

Rest in Peace Muhammad Ali

Are entrepreneurs made or born?

Are entrepreneurs made or born?

Are entrepreneurs made or born?

“…You have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever – because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart even when it leads you off the well-worn path, and that will make all the difference.”Steve Jobs

For quite some time, popular belief has been that there is a strong link between characteristics – or personality – and the potential to become an entrepreneur.

This suggested that Entrepreneurs were born that way.

However, it seems to be becoming more apparent that the links are not as strong as was once believed. Instead, people are becoming more open to the idea that we can be taught to become more Entrepreneurial.

This is 100% my experience in my own life, and the lives of people around me. With the right mindset, anything is possible.

Are entrepreneurs made or born?

Case study of Steve Jobs: who imagined a future and then created it.

The perfect example of how entrepreneurs are made and not born!

Steve Jobs was the $8.4-billion-dollar man, and was undoubtedly one of the most powerful visionary leaders in history. In 1976 he co-founded Apple in his parents’ garage, was fired 9 years later, brought back to rescue it in 1997 from near bankruptcy, and by the time of his death in 2011 had turned it into the most valuable company on the planet. An innovator, intellect and artist, not many come close to this case study in success.

Which aspect of Steve Jobs’ personality contributed to his success the most? Most would answer with his supreme self-confidence.

“The only problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste,” Mr. Jobs said in a typical broadside. “They have absolutely no taste. And I don’t mean that in a small way, I mean that in a big way, in the sense that they don’t think of original ideas, and they don’t bring much culture into their products.”

If that doesn’t give you an idea about just how self-confident this genius was, here’s a few more examples: He was running two companies at the same time- Apple in the morning, Pixar in the afternoon. Because he knew he could. He passed on that confidence – once persuading Steve Wozniak to finish a months-long job in just four days. Making the impossible possible. His colleagues called this his reality distortion field, after an episode of Star Trek centred around Aliens using mental force to create a convincing alternative reality.

This man visualised a future, played with it in his mind, and then created it – all without compromise. Jobs had trouble imagining failure because he believed he could do whatever he put his mind to. That’s exactly what he did.

Jose Mourinho: a case of self discipline in action

MyAdvertisingPays Personal Development The MAP Addiction

Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho: a case of self discipline in action

How do you feel about Jose Mourinho as the manager of Manchester United? As talks enter their second day, Paul Scholes has made his feelings clear, suggesting in the media that Jose Mourinho would ‘deliver exciting football’ at Manchester United.

How can he deliver such excitement and consistent results? In my opinion, Jose Mourinho is the perfect example of self-discipline in action!

As one of the best football managers in the world, Jose Mourinho is a great case study for success. Often referred to as “The Special One”, Mourinho was born on 26 January 1963 in Setúbal, Portugal. His father – José Félix Mourinho – was a Portuguese goalkeeper and manager. Mourinho Snr. lost out on the Portugal national team job in 1983 but lost out and never got another chance.

Going on to coach little-known players at small-time clubs, his influence on his son’s career was vital. In the Mourinho biography, author Ciaran Kelly quotes Professor Jorge Castelo – one of his teachers during his five years at The University of Lisbon studying sport- on what distinguished Mourinho from other students: “The key was that he had a father who played and coached. Mourinho, during his childhood and adolescence, experienced more of the game’s situations, emotions, and dramas. He was closer than anyone to the specifics of the game.”. Jose’s father provided the wisdom of a lifetime’s experience in football.

Jose Mourinho: a case of self discipline in action

Today, Mourinho Jnr. has been successful at the highest level in four different countries, so other than taking on his father’s wisdom, how did he do it? Self-discipline. The ways in which self-discipline has contributed to his success lies with both the organisation and preparation he puts into his work.

Firstly, Jose’s players have often discussed his organisation skills. Players have spoken of 30 pre-planned preseason sessions – just one quality of a leadership style glowing with self-discipline. Secondly, the off-field preparation he puts into his work arguably goes unchallenged. This preparation includes 16-hour work days between his coaching, scouting, player management, and creating dossiers on his teams upcoming opponents. By showing others that he will put in the hours to be successful, he is setting an example for his team. However, we don’t have to be football managers to learn from his philosophy of success – we all can.

As someone who has been at the top in four different countries, his success translates across both cultures and different industries.

Jose Mourinho: a case of self discipline in action

Let’s get behind the drive to bring him to Old Trafford, because with football in his blood, his leadership style, and self discipline rubbing off onto the players, I for one can see a swift and exciting rise to the top for Manchester United!

The above case study is an extract from my new book, Money. Mindset. Millionaire. in which I take an in depth look at the mindset needed to achieve success and financial freedom. This will be released later this year. To pre-order a copy, you can email TheMapAddiction@gmail.com .

The secret to becoming a MILLIONAIRE

The secret to becoming a MILLIONAIRE

What is the secret to becoming a millionaire? If you want to become wealthier, then the first step is to work on your mindset. This isn’t something that happens overnight, not is it a process that has a clearly defined start and end.

In particular, it doesn’t have an end.

Instead, it is an on-going commitment – by you – to continued personal development, which you will need to set aside time for each and every day.

Forever.

Because if you want to increase the money in your bank account, then you need to provide the universe with a service that equals that amount. You cannot expect to be rewarded if you are not prepared to work on yourself, to increase the value of the service you offer.

And how do you increase your value? You work on your mindset.

It isn’t a free lunch. This book is not a free lunch. It will require work and commitment. However if you follow the advice, you will create the right conditions for wealth to come into your life.

Because we are going to get you to the point where you can provide the universe with a service that equals a million dollars. This is how the universe works. You have to create something. Or give a service. Or add value. Unless of course you get lucky and win the lottery – but the odds of this happening aren’t very good.

So instead, you can make the decision to take responsibility and take the creation of wealth into your own hands. And that all starts in the mind too.

Mindset is everything.

Think about it: everything you can see right now as you read this book – the chair you sit on, the light above you, the shape of the window you look out of and the cars that pass by it, were all, at some point, a thought in the mind of their creator.

That thought manifested by someone who took action. However it had to occur in the person’s mind before it could become a physical reality.

The secret to becoming a MILLIONAIRE

Everything begins in the mind.

Mindset was the beginning of my journey. In my first book, The MAP Addiction, I shared the story of how I was approached in the street when I was working as a Road Sweeper and I am going to share it again in this book, because it was a pivotal and defining moment in my life, and what I consider to be the beginning of a huge mindset shift.

Here’s what happened.

While I was working on a job in Bristol, a gentleman approached me in the street. At the time I was head-to-toe in tar. He confidently strode over to me and said, ‘You look like a smart guy, do you keep your options open?’ and then he handed me a small box.

I’ll never forget the four words that were written on the front of that box…

An opportunity for you

Inside were two audiocassettes; the gentleman told me to listen to them and let him know what I thought of the content the next day. I was simultaneously excited and intrigued as to what was on the tapes, and given that I was still in charge of the team I decided that we should all finish early that day!

I got back to the hotel and promptly listened to the tapes from start to end, transfixed. The message was clear: you can live the life of your dreams. You don’t have to be where you are right now. Everything in life is a choice.

The authors of those tapes spoke of financial freedom and residual income, of not trading time for money, and of ultimately escaping the rat race.

The timing of this message couldn’t have been better; it confirmed what I’d been thinking ever since I’d had to put my Porsche to rest in the garage while I worked 12-hour days. It gave me hope for a different future. The message I took, and the one that has stayed with me, is this: we’ve got one life and we need to live it. And knowing this, why then would I settle for anything less?

You might know the name of the stranger that came out of the blue that day. It’s important for me to recognise him (and anyone else who offers others the possibility of success) because he helped me to reach this conclusion much faster than I might have on my own.

The people on those tapes were talking about a multi billion-dollar company called Amway.

Thank you, Paul Still.

The secret to becoming a MILLIONAIRE

The message on those tapes was clear: it’s all about the mindset. And when you get the mindset right, money can flow to you. Because money is simply the transfer of energy.

My new book, Money. Mindset. Millionaire (which is now almost half way completed), will show you EXACTLY how by sharing with you the 12 Success Habit you absolutely must develop is you want to become a million dollar earner.

Monday inspiration: how to choose your words more carefully

Monday inspiration: how to choose your words more carefully

Monday inspiration: how to choose your words more carefully

Last Friday, a kind and eagle-eyed colleague in MyAdvertisingPays (MAP) spotted an error in the title of a recent blog post I had posted. It was ‘just’ one word, however that one word changed the whole meaning of the piece, and it led me into thinking more about the power of words, and how we all need to choose them more carefully. 

Because as Eckhart Tolle said in A New Earth, “one small error, one misconception creates a world of suffering”.

For me, the mistake was easily rectified – I could log into my blog and change it, however when the words we use to define ourselves over our lifetime are not as accurate as they could be, things become much harder to challenge. What better time to start challenging these words than now?

Below I’ve highlighted some of the main ‘offending’ words – those which, if left unchecked can cause some of the greatest damage to our self-belief or potential for achieving our goals. A small change in the way you talk to yourself and others can have a huge, transformational impact on your success, your life, your relationships, your reality and your dreams.

Monday inspiration: how to choose your words more carefully

So, what are the words you need to choose more carefully?

Try. How many times have you heard yourself or other people say “I’ll try”? “I’ll try to finish that project by tomorrow”, “I’ll try to loose some weight”. Trying isn’t committing. Either you are going to do something or you’re not. Make that commitment. Get it done. Swap “I’ll try” for “I will” and you’ll see the difference almost instantly.

Should. This refers to a world imagined in our heads. The way things ‘should’ be versus the way they are. We are taught from being young that we should or should not do this, that in order to have a secure future we should study hard, invest our hard earned money in pensions, or work tirelessly in a 9-5 role. They ‘shoulds’ that are implanted in our minds are placed there from people who had them implanted by someone else and if we aren’t careful, we spend our lives not challenging them.

I can’t. Really? You can’t? How do you know? What evidence do you have that you can’t. There’s the old saying, ‘can’t means don’t want’. Is that what you’re really saying? Because if you want something, and I mean truly want something, you will make it happen. Saying ‘I can’t’ is basically giving yourself the opportunity to do nothing, because when you say you can’t, you then don’t have to work to find a solution. Is that the person you want to be?

Wish. For me, wishing conjures up images of people wishing for a better life, whilst sat passively doing nothing about it. We wish for a lottery win. Stop wishing, take responsibility for yourself and your life and start acting. Rather like trying, you need to replace wishing with an action word. “I will become wealthy”, I will achieve my health goals”.

I am. ‘I am’ and the words you use after them define your reality and your inner sense of who you are. Be careful not to use ‘I am’ to then define a negative emotion… such as ‘I am angry’. That suggests that anger has become who you are. ‘I feel angry’ is better. Instead, use ‘I am’ statements to define yourself by the positive traits you want to be, or know that you already are. ‘I am successful’, ‘I am someone who helps others achieve their dreams’, ‘I am a millionaire’, ‘I am a BILLIONAIRE’.

Make it a commitment to watch your words, and watch your world transform!

How to quickly change your mindset from negative to positive

MyAdvertisingPays Personal Development The MAP Addiction

How to quickly change your mindset from positive to negative

How to quickly change your mindset from negative to positive

The truth is this: you can achieve anything you want in life. You were born a winner, just like everyone else, and the only thing that stands in your way of success is your mindset. You are reading this for a start, and so you’re already a winner, you’re already someone who has an interest or dedication to improving themselves.

Changing your mindset from negative to positive is a lifelong commitment, something you work on each and every day. However in this blog post I am going to be sharing with you some very simple steps that can get you started today. Right away. Because if you’re anything like me, once you’ve made up your mind to do something, you want to get going immediately. This book in an in depth guide as to how to do that, but in this opening section I want to give you a quick start overview so that you can implement some changes right away. These will serve you well as you read through the rest of the book.

Before you read on, I want you to believe and know that you are a winner, you can achieve your dreams. With the right mindset, you can follow your dreams and passions, and you won’t let anyone or anything hold you back. I want you to feel good about yourself and your life.

Mindset is everything in life. How you approach every moment of every day will determine the outcome of your actions. Do you approach life with joy, attention and enthusiasm. Or do you approach your tasks and responsibilities with negativity and resentment? When we put our all into the present moment and do the little things right, the bigger picture takes care of itself.

But to do this, to approach life in this way, you need to work hard on yourself, harder than you ever have before. But trust me, it’s worth it. By following the guidance below, you’ll be amazed at how your life will improve for the better. Not only your life, but the lives of the people around you too.

People just love positive people. Actually, let me rephrase that: most people love positive people, some of course love negative people! It’s all about conditioning, and it can be easy to judge people who are negative, but just remember that they may have been born into negativity, they may not know any different. Rather than judge and speak badly of them, you can choose to help.

Remember that in the same way, we are all conditioned in our belief about life. For instance, we don’t go from zero to becoming an instant millionaire. It takes time, how long is up to you but ultimately if you practice daily and consciously at any new belief or habit, for 21 days in a row, you can change your conditioning.

Quick daily habits 

So I said that I wanted to quickly share with you the daily things you should be doing to make these changes quickly. If you want to change your mindset fast you have to do these things fast. You need to fill your life with everything to do with positivity, success, and successful people. Study successful people and copy what they do.

Here are the key daily actions for the success mindset, which will lead you to a successful, happy and fulfilling life.

  • Read personal development books daily – for 30 minutes minimum. Read self development books written by successful people – I include many here on this blog including this one. Ideally, do 15 minutes to start your day off in a positive way and 15 minutes before bed at night. That way you’ll be planting positive thoughts into your mindset before you drift off to sleep. This is very powerful as your subconscious will soak up the new, positive ways of thinking and your brain will do the work for you whilst you are asleep. If you have more time to dedicate to reading then great, things will transform faster.
  • Positivity – watch a positive video each day. If you are going to watch a film, watch something inspirational. You are going to have to delete, block and ban negativity from your life. This may seem harsh, and so you may have to speak to people and let them know you don’t want to be around negatives anymore. If you experience negative people on Facebook or other social media platforms, give them a warning and if they continue, delete, block and ban them. You’ll be amazed how your life starts to turn to positive. Turn off the news and do not watch it. Turn off the TV, and the radio too. Don’t read the newspapers. The reason being is that it is all full of negativity generally and you are being brainwashed, even if you don’t think you are. Even if it is on in the background, your subconscious can hear every word – whether that it is the TV, radio, or other people. If they haven’t got smiling faces, get away. Practice this daily and you’ll be amazed at how things turn around!
  • Follow successful people. Either on social media, or go to places where successful people go. It’s really quite basic and easy, but it is also easy not to do. Like eating an apple every day, it is easy not to do it despite knowing it is good for you. Choose what is good for you.
  • For every negative thought, replace it with 11 positive thoughts. If you’re thinking negative, then it attracts more negative and negative things will start to happen in your life and so it is crucial that you replace negative thoughts with at least 11 positive ones. This might seem extreme and I used to replace every negative thought with at least 3 positive thoughts but I was talking to a wiser man one day and he suggested upping that to 11. After I thought about it, it made a lot of sense as I will be compounding positive thoughts and this is what I do. Apply this to your life and watch it transform, you’ll be amazed it how it makes you feel, and feeling is everything. This is really powerful. It is a habit; I’ve been studying personal development all my life. Terrible things have happened in my life however I immediately see the positive – I would otherwise attract negative universal energy. It’s incredible when you get this working in your favour. Just watch The Secret and you’ll see what I mean

How to quickly change your mindset from positive to negative

There are 3 parts to us as humans. The body, the mind and the spirit. Work hard on each of these elements.

Work hard in a positive way – and keep it that way. The mindset, the spiritual world, and the body. Look after each.

The mind has the power. Plug into the spiritual world. Plug into the universal world and it’s abudanat energy. If you want something, keep it simple – just ask for it. And believe it will happen. You’ll be amazed at what comes next. So if you want that Porsche, ask the universe for it and it will deliver. It might seem crazy as you’re reading this right now but trust me, if you want it bad enough your mind will deliver it to you. It is the same with anything you want. Just believe it and it is yours.

But what do you want?

Most people don’t even know what they want. Write down what you want. Spend a good couple of hours on what you want to achieve in life and when you want to achieve it by. Remember you have one life: live it. You can have anything you want… Do you want that Yacht in Monaco? It’s yours. Do you want to be around positive people in life? You can have this too. Do you want to travel the world first class? You can do it! Just ask the universe and it’s yours.

It sounds great doesn’t it? Well, I can assure you, it is great! It’s phenomenal. All of this just from using the power of your mind. Believe and trust in yourself, trust in the universe. And it is all yours.

Does this mean life will be perfect? 

Of course not.

Things are going to happen in life that are beyond your control, you’ll have challenges. Are you going to overcome them? Yes you are. Especially when you have the mindset skills, which from every negative there will be a positive and remember, where there is a positive there is always a negative. Just like how you can’t have God without the Devil. You can’t have life without death. It’s how you deal with them both that matters. Look for the positives and learn from the negatives. The universe will give you more of the positives if your mind is aligned to seek them out.

So remember…

You can choose negative or positive. If you choose negative then you will attract more negativity to you. And you won’t feel so great as a result, but if you focus on positive you’ll get positive energy out into the universe and you get more of that back. It is very important that you understand the importance of a positive mindset.

There is no room for fear or doubt and negativity.

It will hold you back all of your life. Over 85% of the things you worry about never happen. Think about that, what a waste of time and energy that could be spent on other things.

Focus on what you want to happen, and what you want in life. Get the feeling of already owning what you want. And it is only a matter of time before you will have it. How fast you get it is up to you.

Conversely, time dwelling on the things you want is time well spent. So don’t feel you are wasting time thinking about the things you want because youre not, most people don’t have the time to think because they are in the rat race – some people work 12 hour days. They come home shattered, have dinner, watch TV and collapse into bed. It is monotonous, mind numbing and in my opinion quite depressing.

Right now I put practice what I preach, because if I spend time focusing your mind on the negativity that exists in the rat race, we’ll spiral into negativity and attract more of that… so let’s with the focus and dwell some more on the positive.

Let’s talk aout what you want.

What do you ultimately want?

Peace of mind?

All of us want this. It is a nice state. Ultimately we want to be happy – at least most of us do and we don’t want to be worrying about a lack of money. Lack of money has broken up more marriages than any other reason, and causes more stress and anxiety than any other issue we can face.

“Who wants to be a millionaire?” was and is one of the most popular programmes in the world for a reason. People know that their life can become more comfortable and peaceful when the day to day stress of where the money is coming from disappears. How many people play the lottery in the hope they might get lucky?

But in my opinion, financial freedom isn’t a matter of luck, but a matter of whether you really want it. It’s about choice and mindset. Not everyone does want it – some want to get by, be comfortable, pay the bills, and that is also fine.

Just remember this, whatever you want, you can have it. That’s the bottom line.

6 ways to a positive life, INSTANTLY

6 ways to a positive life instantly

Want to know how you can live a more positive life, but don’t have hours and hours to spare reading long self help books? Take a look at these quick actions you can take immediately that will allow you to live a more positive life, instantly.

Practice gratitude. The fast track way to a positive life is to learn to be grateful for everything you have. And let’s face it, we all have a lot. In fact, we live like kings and queens of days gone by, if not better. Be grateful for your hot water, central heating, your ability to read this blog post as a result of an incredible education, that you can reach out for a drink or something to eat without difficultly. Even some of the most poor and deprived people within our society have an incredible amount to feel grateful for and as soon as we start to recognise what is good, we notice more of what is good. And guess what? That makes us feel GREAT!

Make a choice to be happy. Do you want to be happy or does your ego get a sense of identity or gratification from the negativity in your life? People can be addicted to negativity, to illness – because it gives them a sense of identity, a place in the world. They get attention and sympathy. What would it be like to let go of the negativity and embrace a different way? What if you could get addicted to positivity instead? Make a choice to be happy and watch your life transform instantly.

Meditate on your breath. Take a moment to take a deep, conscious breath. Focus on the rise and fall of your abdomen, the air going into your nostrils. Repeat it just a couple of times and now reflect: whilst you were focused on the breath, what were you thinking? The likelihood is that you weren’t thinking about much, because it is almost impossible to be mindful and conscious of your breath whilst thinking at the same time. The implication of this is that once you notice yourself engaging in negative thoughts, you can give yourself a moment to take a few conscious breaths and put some space between yourself and your thinking.

6 ways to a positive life, INSTANTLY

Give compliments. Say something nice to the next person you see. It doesn’t matter who it is… just notice something nice or positive about them and then take the opportunity to share that with them. Watch their demeanour change. And crucially, watch your own change also!

Help someone. Contribution, or making a difference, is one of our fundamental human needs and nothing feels better than giving someone a lift or a hand. Next time someone asks you for help, give it freely and willingly and watch what happens as a result. I love helping people and putting smiles on people’s faces, it is an essential part of my life and something I take huge pride in.

Surround yourself with the winners in life. Get around positive people and energy. If you want to transform your world and get a positive life, instantly, then you need to hang around in the places where positive people are. Notice who in your life your energy dips around and spend less time in their presence. You don’t need to be cold or critical, you don’t even need to explain yourself, just make a conscious choice to spend less time with that energy and see out the positive. If you hang around positive people, that energy will rub off on you. Get to the next MyAdvertisingPays (MAP) event and you’ll feel a phenomenal energy in the room as people all on the same wavelength, all working for the benefit of one another, bring their positive energy together to change lives.
