YOU Are What YOU Think, Believe and Eat?

 

I felt inspired to write this article as a member of the Australian Business Online Directory.

I hope that it INSPIRES people to THINK about and BELIEVE in themselves in a way that is uplifting and loving most of the time.

It’s OK to accept both the light and dark, positive and negative of all the sides of us as one without the other could not exist.

For you to know light you must experience darkness.

For you to know positive you must experience negative.

Enjoy the article and let me know what are your thoughts.

Health Wealth and Abundance to YOU always


YOU Are What YOU Think, Believe and Eat?

Do you really believe that to be so?

Are YOU what you think YOU are?
Are YOU what you believe YOU are?
Are YOU what YOU eat?

I believe that we are all these things and so much more….sooooo much more. We are pure potentiality and yet so many don’t even scratch the surface of DOING anything with their life and I say Doing because I dislike the word “try” infact I tend to never use it in my vocabulary – only when wanting to make a point, lol and I do that often!

You see in life you can go around trying things and yet already just in writing this and possibly in you reading this, the word try just feels like a half ass effort doesn’t it. If you truly want to be successful and I say this to myself as much as anyone who has chosen to take the time to read this, you just gotta give things a go. Afterall you don’t try and breathe do you? You just breathe or you don’t and if you don’t you’re probably dead.
Do It or Do not there is no Try.
I think my friend YODA said it so well when he penned that phrase and it’s become something I live by.

So back to my question are YOU what YOU think you are?

If you’re creating every thought that enters your mind then would it not stand to reason that you are your thoughts. Some thoughts could be polar opposites of each other. I won’t say right or wrong, good or bad, they’re just thoughts that might be opposite ends of the spectrum – interesting concept huh.

So if you think thoughts, are you still those thoughts? What about only if you really believe those thoughts?

It might go for the same concept when somebody tells you something – do you always believe them, is it true right or real? Only if you believe it to be so? So if you have control over your thoughts and also your beliefs would it be fair to say that perhaps YOU are what you think you are and what YOU believe you are. YOU are NOT what other people believe you are after all. It doesn’t matter what other people think of you, it only matters what YOU think of YOU.

Perhaps the difference here would be to concentrate on those things that lift you up, vibrate well with you, excite your soul and allow you to feel good and excited and motivated to go out and really inspire others and succeed in life.  I’m not saying that you can’t feel the sad emotions, the angry emotions or even the hurt emotions however understand that staying in those emotions for too long may not serve you well or lift your spirits or propel you further and further forward.

I have found that when my spirits are high and I feel good, is when I get my best work done.

In saying that, it leads me to the third question… Are YOU what YOU eat?

Well I think that really is a no brainer. For many years I enjoyed junkie type food and things that perhaps weren’t the best for me and noticed that as the years when on I got a few more kgs heavier and feeling more sluggish. Now I’m not saying that I was eating all bad stuff, probably I could have been eating way better. Actually no probably about it, I could have been eating a whole lot better and if I was I would have felt better and then achieved so much more and perhaps a little more exercise thrown in would have helped also. I tend to do that in spurts.

I really noticed this when I got really really sick Christmas of 2010 and i think that might have been the sickest I’ve ever been. It was horrible. I suffered for months later. Everything around me suffered. I become more depressed and didn’t want to get out of bed. I had no energy no spirit no drive to push anything along. Things started to suffer. My staff left. My business suffered. My health suffered. My heart and soul died inside. Everything I had worked so hard for, for so many years was crumbling down around me. I was running a successful six figure business year after year and it felt good, most of the time. I wanted more and yet just didn’t have the drive nor the motivation to push harder or perhaps I should be saying smarter and soon the finances started being affected and its been a long climb back up the mountain. At times it feels like I am still at base camp and yet when I look back on all that I have achieved since then, I think I’m a lot further on than base camp although no where near the summit yet…although I’m working towards that one..

So I started with ME. I started with looking after what I needed. I needed to REST. I needed good quality SLEEP. I needed to be hydrated – I mean really HYDRATED daily with good clean water. I need to start eating better foods and cut out some that weren’t the best. Now I’m not saying that I went completely the opposite – I didn’t and still don’t. I still enjoy my chocolates and coffee and the occassional iced coffee too (you know the sweet ones) and chips however the food that I choose to eat now most of the time is way more healthier and I’m more conscious of it. I”m learning about what products to put on and in my body – the surest way to know, is that if you can’t put it in your mouth don’t put it on your body!

At the start of 2017 I did a 21 day detox program and cleaned out my gut – afterall our health starts with our gut. As a result I lost 4kg. In February I did a 30 day water challenge. Along with eating healthier I consumed 3.5 litres of clean Healthier Water a day and gave back to charity for every day I achieved this (of course I did it! I was determined to succeed) and as a result lost another 2kg. Then my partner and I did a 90 day Wildfit challenge and this was tougher than I imagined. I slipped up occassionally however I still lost another 4kg as a result and I felt great.  For most of the year I mainted the lower weight and yet slowly I’ve put on a couple of kgs again. Now I’m not really overweight for my height however when I feel great I look great and I feel more energetic, so at the start of 2018 it’s time for another detox. Always a great way to start the year ahead. Start how you plan to finish!

The learning curve is incredible and I’m changing things little bit by little bit – it’s much easier that way than over whelming ones self with a complete 360 flip. One product at a time change. What I have learnt over my journey so far, is that without my health I have NOTHING! You can have all the money in the world, yet without your health you have nothing. You can have the best business in the world yet without your health you have NOTHING. You can have a loving family and yet without your health what can you really enjoy.

Look at your health as your number one investment in yourself and everything starts to change from there. That includes looking after your mental health, your physical health and your spiritual health. When you’re in flow everything flows. Be kind to yourself along the way. Change can be challenging at times and when you attempt to do too much all at once you may find you STOP and do nothing. Remember baby steps as long as your moving and moving forward.

YOU are what YOU think
YOU are what YOU believe
YOU are what YOU eat.

Invest in YOU and invest in YOUR success.

Success is in all of us we just gotta take the necessary steps to DO it.

Failure is not the opposite of success its just the polarity of it. Without success there is no failure. Without failure there is no success otherwise you would have nothing to measure this against. If you fall down, make sure you get back up again and again and again…that is the way and the path to success.

NEVER GIVE UP.
With love, health, wealth and abundance to YOU always

HOW TO DEAL WITH BURNOUT – Take these steps immediately

I love these videos by Kate Maree O’Brien because she’s often spot on the money with what she shares and because she’s genuinely experienced it herself.
I can relate to this!
When I started working for myself some 13 years ago I went hell for leather for probably the first 7 years and wondered why by 2010 I became very sick and run down, often tired and wanting to just sleep, sleep, sleep.  Anxiety and stress was obviously getting to me although I would never readily admit that. I was fine. I was a machine. I could just keep going. I often said, “Sleep is over rated” and “I’ll sleep when I’m dead”. Little did I know that sleep was one of the most important things for my healing and recovery. Now sleep to me is very important. I often have no problems sleeping, however sometimes its the quality of my sleep that counts.
If you believe you might be challenged or dealing with burnout, check out what Kate Maree O’Brien has to say and do check out her other video’s. There really is some great content worth listening and watching to.

FEELING BURNTOUT? WATCH THIS VIDEO! This is the exact steps to take immediately if you’re feeling overwhelmed or burnt out and your system system is on overdrive. When you’re feeling stressed and overwhelmed, and you’ve been running for so long, your system starts to go into a survival-type mode, and the first priority is to unwind that. To allow your system to unwind, so that you can breathe. And from there make better decisions for yourself. Healing burnout, starts with self care. Burnout comes about when we take on TOO much. So dealing with burnout requires us to be able to step back and make new decisions. To be a powerful no and a powerful yes. To eliminate things out of our lives. BUT it’s hard to do that when we are burntout, so the FIRST thing. The MOST urgent thing with burnout is (drum roll please).. Taking time for yourself to unwind your system. This is more important than anything else, and becomes your highest priority. In this video I discuss what I mean by ‘The Power of Attorney’, and going into ‘ICU’. Ive put myself in ICU, so many times, and I have a really low tolerance to putting myself in there too!
