Thought management


“It amazes me that there are people who do not understand or get, or appreciate the concept that everything begins from within. It starts on the inside and then is made on the outside. The results we get in the real world start first inside us as an idea or representation.

It is simple. Chairs didn’t come from the outside. They begin as a thought, an idea, a concept, a possibility inside someone’s mind. When ready the individual or individuals made a chair. This is true with any creation humans make. From within to without is the process.

This is why it is so critical to learn to control your thinking process. This is why maintaining a positive mind set is critical to your success. You success stems from the mind set you hold FIRST!!! Your happiness, your enjoyment, your life exists within you and how you think about it.

The results you get, whether you like them or not, ARE the reflection of what goes on inside you already. If you don’t like them you must change what you are doing on the inside because whatever you are doing is getting you what you don’t want.

Successful happy people already know this. They know how to think and bring about wonderful lifestyles, careers, riches and happiness. Others do not. They are using their mind to remain poor or broke, unhappy and conflicted.

What you think about you become. What you focus on expands. What you hold in your head you will one day hold in your hand. What you think about you bring about. How many times do we have to hear it until we realize it?  As many as necessary until we do!

I studied these principles since a child and it took years before I realized what it was about. It is so simple we miss it. We don’t believe it. We ignore it. It is not necessarily easy because we are conditioned to think and behave and do otherwise.

We have to take control of that habitual chronic thinking and train our minds to do what we want. Otherwise our minds do what they learned to do. If you don’t like what you are getting then you must change their training program or you will keep getting the same.

Why do I repeat myself frequently in these blog pages. FOR THIS VERY REASON!!! We need to hear it or see it or repeat it enough until we realize we need to do something different to get what we want. ONLY you can control your thinking in this way.

Others have influenced you and you may be thinking their programs as we all grew up doing. Time to begin to think for oneself. Time to make the world what you want it to be. Time to make yourself into the person you already truly are but keep missing.

Your conditioning, my conditioning keeps us blinded. Time to make it otherwise. Time to program yourself for happiness and success. Time to make it happen. When isn’t NOW a good time to begin? Do it today. Decide to become the master of your thoughts!”

Forgiveness After The Storm

Forgiveness After The Storm

The muse of poetry in its depths stalls the ensue of thee,Drowning in the sparse spectacle of hope left, one dives into the waters of misery.Triabilsing in the painful stance of existence, death in its allure creeps behind,To be or not be in the bane of tormenting breaths, in their truth one seems to find,

The hostility that binds, convulsion in its gloating flair laughs hysterically at the corpse of being,Dreariness to live in its slow burn writhes the only ounce of light left to see.The void of embracing the freshness of unadulterated air forges to question the beauty,Of living a life that could lead in the lightness of radiance and the smiles of unbridled glee.

The trueness of being lapses in the oscillation of turbulence and the sea of calm,Yet the tides of uncertain syllables that breed animosity render the sou

Beyond Materialism: The Psychological Motivations Behind Retail Therapy

Beyond Materialism

Most people can understand the happiness that comes from purchasing something for oneself when we talk about needing some retail therapy. Can shopping truly improve our mood? Clinical psychologist Scott Bea, PsyD, affirms that shopping can have psychological and therapeutic benefits as long as it is done in moderation, according to research. Engaging in shopping activities, whether online or in person, can provide a psychological and emotional boost. Even just browsing can bring happiness, but it’s important to be mindful of your spending habits. Dr. Bea outlines various explanations for the phenomenon.

Shopping helps to regain a feeling of power or authority

Research demonstrates that engaging in shopping activities can help individuals feel more in control of their

The Aesthetic Epidemic: Understanding the Roots of Lookism

The Aesthetic Epidemic

We care about more than just ourselves – we care about our loved ones, our communities, and the world around us. We are affected by tragic events, especially when a child is murdered, regardless of where it happens. It deeply impacts us and makes us feel disheartened. Moral evils raise doubts about the goodness of the world and the value of existence, especially for those who believe in a benevolent deity. However, anyone can contemplate the purpose and value of the universe in light of such evils. We may not need to worry about the value of the Universe and instead focus on finding value in our own lives or the lives of our loved ones. The concept of value is subjective and can be created by us.

The important question is what we should value or find pleasure in. Some people may try to ignore moral evil by focusing only on their own lives and loved ones, but this narrow perspective is unsatisfying for most. I

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

To be or not to be, to go all in or to unwind and relax, we question our dreams, running in constant chase of our quests to come true, we are the ones who never sleep. Dreamers we are called, the ones who passionately strive in the endeavours of the best they could ever be, here is a letter to me, a letter to you. In the stride of embracing the best you have ever been, nurture your soul before the onset of the abundance in you that lies unseen.

Too bold, too much for your age, you are doing too much, how often have you heard these notions been used to describe you? As we tirelessly strive to achieve the next goal we have in our mind, we are often told that we are being hard on ourselves, to enjoy life a little. Life in its entirety passes by us in its dynamic flair, and the existence we envisage holds unique individuality to each one of us. The choices one makes for themselves belies them and them only, and t

How To Remain Centered And Calm In Face Of Difficulty

Thought management

My life is a mess and I have nothing to be grateful about! I witness myself say this phrase from time to time, where life plonks us into the desperation of ebb and flow of wilderness and things not going in our favour.

It is easy to say we are grateful and in complete balance when things are going well and life feels like the warm embrace of the sun shining on a Sunday morning. But the real test lies in remaining grateful and centred when life feels like spinning out of control.

While it is easier said than done, here are some reminders that might help you get through the days that feel like a burden –

1) This too shall pass, no moment in time that feels permanent loses its impermanence. We often lose hope when things don’t go our way and during these sad days, we should remember, that t

15 Most Liberating Thoughts For Someone Who Needs It

Thought management

Our life unfolds in a succession of revelations of who we are. It is when we sit down and repeat the same sentence in our head over and over again, in every action we perform, every activity we indulge ourselves in, does it indulges into our existence as a habit.

The key to having a sense of liberation is allowing life to flow through, not forcing anything and more essentially not resisting change. I believe that our life improves in the direct proportionality of how often we are exposed to situations where are forced to challenge our age-old beliefs and counterfeited perceptions and seek the greater version of ourselves. When we get too comfortable in the comfort zones we build for ourselves, we do not grow into the people we are meant to be. Sadly most people embrace change only when metamorphosis is the less painful and only possible option.

I know that
