Daily Decisions: Why You Should Think With Your Heart

Daily every moment you make small and big decisions. Do you put your heart in when you think with your mind? Why do I ask? Read on for answers.

Your heart is the core of your being and bears true feelings. While the mind thinks, its inner critic is at work. So your thoughts and feelings are pulled in different directions and you make an inconsistent choice.

Always think with your heart because your heart will always tell you the truth through the feelings you have about a particular situation or matter. Your thoughts are secondary while your heart is prime.

You make the best decisions when your thoughts and feelings are on the same plane. That way your decisions are solid and can never be wrong.

Practice and practice thinking with your heart. Ask yourself: What does my intuition say? And the heart will answer for you. Whenever you find your thoughts discordant with your feelings, stop. Distract yourself for a few minutes by focusing on something. It can be a home item, office ingredient, a picture or even a view. Then come back to the choice you are about to make. Look what your heart says. Find out what your mind says about the same matter. If they are in harmony now, you are well off to make a good decision.

Therefore, when you make a choice or decision, always figure out if you are thinking with your heart. In most cases you will be not. So attempt again and again until you do it on autopilot meaning it becomes a good habit for you and there is not much effort on your part.

Heart and mind are crucial elements of the body. While feelings belong to the heart, thoughts belong to the mind as I have already mentioned. Thoughts and feelings are not in the same category. While your feelings agree with your gut instinct, your thoughts may have a problem because of your mind's inner critic. In other words, while your feelings will be positive, your thoughts will be negative. That is why I advise you to learn and relearn to harmonize your thoughts and feelings.

As I have already mentioned, if you are able to do it on autopilot, you will never ever make a wrong choice. You have successfully educated yourself into making good decisions no matter how big or small. Isn't that wonderful?

Learn From Your Mistakes

“As you begin to take action toward the fulfillment of your goals and dreams, you must realize that not every action will be perfect. Not every action will produce the desired result. Not every action will work. Making mistakes, getting it almost right, and experimenting to see what happens are all part of the process of eventually getting it right.     

Jack Canfield


Expect Life to Be Hard and It Gets Easier


The easiest way of making life easier is to redefine what we presently think is hard.

If we think something is hard we won't enjoy that thing, unless we see the purpose or benefit in doing or enduring the hard thing.

If we expect life to be easy, we're soon disappointed. Expecting life to be easy is the commonest insanity. But, where we anticipate life to be tough, life is suddenly made much easier because our expectations are right-sized to reality. For life is easy for nobody.

Yet reality is an authentic friend to all who ply courage and humility; who love truth.

Life is tough, always has been, always will be. But when we accept life is tough, it gets easier.

Surely a purpose of life is to endure hardship better so we're able to experience more joy. The opportunity we all have is to recalibrate how we perceive difficulty. The more prepared we are for a range of difficulty, the more resilient we will in fact be.

Recalibrating our perception of difficulty has got to be about faith, even for the irreligious.

Faith has this direct benefit. It trusts that enduring hardship makes us stronger, more resilient, mature persons. There's a payoff for our sacrifice of endurance. When we believe something good compensates us for enduring something hard, our actual experience of life is made easier, because we see the purpose.

We can do anything if we see the purpose and agree it's worthwhile. And in faith there is purpose in enduring misfortune well... to struggle well.

That's faith. It trusts that enduring adversity is good, for it knows that there's no other sane option. And when faith is vindicated, we redeem what goodness and growth would not be ours otherwise.

When immersed in the sea of difficulty we either sink or swim. Because there's no point in sinking we choose to swim.

The Importance Of Planning Ahead For Everything

Welcomed to the Year! This article will help you get familiar with the importance of effective planning ahead for everything in your life. Time ahead can be puzzling and confronting. To make its best use, it requires the ability to reduce the wastage of resources, in particular - time. This can be done effectively by identifying the problem you confront. It is important to carry out an in-depth analysis of the situation, such that the problem can be identified. We should avoid planning ahead of the possible causes of the wastage. This is a difficult task, but always keep in mind that life can be pretty good for tossing curved balls. There are ways that can help us in effectively planning ahead. For example, how much you need, to repay back, the mortgage on your home, or how to take care of your children when your spouse is seriously ill?

Once the problem was identified by the Holy Spirit and God evolved with a plan to solve it. When carrying out the plan he looked into all the priorities. As he first needed light, he provided with it. The light that was created by God also helped in organizing other things in its place. So, do you have a plan? Because if you fail to plan, then it is certain that you plan to fail. It is not possible to achieve success without a proper plan. When maximising the use of your time, keep in mind to effectively get rid of the waste. It is important to come up with a yearly plan.

Not setting of goals and target is another time waster. When planning, God had set out series of activities for each day. He then set his target and goals to follow. There are a number of people who fail to plan and set goals ahead of time. In case you avoid setting your goals, you will end up wasting more time. You may also fail to review your performance. If you have set five targets for a day and if you achieve only three then it is possible for you to measure your level of success for the day.

If you plan to win 100 souls in a year then it is important for you to establish your needs first. After that, you need to come up with a plan that evenly spreads all your needs over the period of one year. One benefit of setting and following your daily goals is that it helps you accomplish everything at the right time. This is also one way to avoid last minute preparation. Many students fail not because they are not intelligent, but because they have failed to plan ahead of time for success. They always get started preparing for exams only few days before the exams. This increases their work pressure and results in panic. If you plan everything ahead of time, then there is no need for you to panic. You should do everything at the right time.

Loving Yourself in the Face of Others' Expectations (By Margaret Paul, Ph.D.)

How often are you stressed and frazzled in trying to meet others' expectations? You can learn to love yourself instead!

I was staying at a friend's house on one of my teaching trips. I walked into the kitchen early one morning to find my friend frantically trying to get everything done that she believed she needed to get done before going to work.

I walked over to her and put my arm around her and said, "Breathe." She stopped and breathed and started to cry.

"What's going on?" I gently asked her.

She listed off all the things she needed to get done before leaving.

"Why do you have to get all these things done?"

This question stopped her in her tracks. "OMG! I'm trying to do what everyone expects me to do!"

"Are these things you want to do?"

"No!"

"You have help here. Can you get someone else to do them?"

"Yes!"

A big smile broke out on her beautiful face and I could feel the peace coming into her body.

As we talked more about this, my friend realized that all her life she had been trying to meet others' expectations of her, starting with her mother.. She realized how much stress this creates for her, but she also realized how scared she is that someone - her husband, her mother, her kids, her friends - will be angry at her if she doesn't meet their expectations.

"What would your inner child need from you to feel safe in not meeting others' expectations, if what they wanted of you wasn't what you wanted to do? What would be loving to yourself?"

"I know exactly what she needs to feel loved by me and to feel safe. She needs me to let them know that it's not okay with me for them to get angry with me for not meeting their expectations and then to walk away, to lovingly disengage. She also needs for me to not so instantly say 'yes' when they ask me to do things I don't want to do. I need to start to say 'no.' This has been so challenging for me, but I really can't stand this stress anymore of all this pressure of meeting everyone's expectations. I think I'm ready to risk saying no and speaking up for myself if they get mad. Whew! That thought feels like a big relief inside!"

Are you loving yourself in the face of others' expectations, or are you sacrificing yourself to control how others feel about you? Are you taking responsibility for others' feelings or are you focused on what is loving to you?

Loving yourself in the face of others' expectations means:

  • First, tuning in to whether meeting someone's expectations is in your highest good, i.e., is it loving to yourself, or would you would be abandoning yourself to meet their expectations?
  • Being honest with them: saying yes when you mean yes and no when you mean no.
  • If they get angry, annoyed or blaming, speaking up for yourself by letting them know that you are available to talk about it if they are open to learning with you, but not if they continue to be angry and blaming.
  • If they are open, you might want to explore why your meeting this expectation is important to them, and why it might be important to you to not meet it. Much learning can occur through exploring expectations, which can lead to a satisfying resolution for both of you.
  • If the other person isn't open to learning with you, you may need to lovingly disengage - i.e., walk away to take loving care of yourself.

It's important for you to become aware of when you are trying to control how others feel about you - by meeting their expectations when you don't want to - and when meeting their expectations is a joy for you. When it's a form of control, you will feel stressed, and when it's what you truly want to do, you will find pleasure in meeting someone's expectations.

Be as Positive as You Can Be

"Positive thinking is more than just a tagline. It changes the way we behave. And I firmly believe that when I am positive, it not only makes me better, but it also makes those around me better.” 
— Harvey Mackay


Is Life Really This Hard Or Am I Making It This Difficult?

Every day it seems like there are more problems, fewer solutions, less money and more stress. Keeping a positive attitude is not easy when you are on the "lack" side of things. Pessimists always get a bad rap. Is that because what they say is too hard to hear? There is a fine line between the reality of "what is" and a pessimist giving an opinion. An optimist may make you feel better for the moment, however, after that moment passes, you have to deal with the present.

I do believe "manifesting" is viable. It is definitely easier to practice virtually any positive activity while things are going your way. It is easier to give money when you have plenty of it. It is easier to give advice after you are successful. It is easier to talk about weight control after you have accomplished great weight loss. My applause are saved for the brave few that venture out to share when they have not yet aspired to their greatest height. The risk they take is criticism for speaking without a podium and self doubt.

One of the biggest problems I frequently see is the fear that is created by worrying in advance of a situation. All of the "what if scenario's" rolled into a big ball. The more they spin around the fear, the bigger the fear ball becomes. It is physically impossible to cross a bridge until you get to the bridge, yet hours are spent in anguish, worrying about a future event, demanding every possible variable and combination of variables be mentally played out, fretting every possible outcome, before there is a problem. Since that is 100% impossible, all the time and energy given to this endeavor is truly wasted.

For the sake of your health, both mental and physical, stop everything fear based. No decision can be made while you are surrounded by fear. Without the ability to make a decision, no action can be taken. Without any action, you are frozen in time, rendered immobile How long can you stay this way? Some people spend their entire life living in this constant state of fear rather than coming to terms with it. No matter what actually happens, nothing is ever as bad as imagined.

To overcome FEAR, do the following 3 things:

1. Make a list of your biggest fears, cross off all but the 3 things you fear most.

2. What is THE WORST thing that could happen to you if ANY of these 3 fears came true?

3. What is the BEST thing that could happen if NONE of these fears come about?

Now ask yourself, What do you really have to lose? Is it worth taking a chance of failure to achieve success?
