Musings Episode 62: Keep Your Head Up…

Hey everyone, I know this one’s up super late, so I’m gonna be honest. At the moment I’m going through some pretty heavy stuff, so really just trying to keep pushing forward and move positively from day to day in life.

Usually because of the premise of this blog I try NOT to focus on what’s going on in my life and more about thoughts, lessons, and awesome experiences, but I thought my dedicated readers at least deserved an explanation as to why I’ve been sort of on and off when it comes to posting on time.

Anyway, this week’s musing just thought I’d get a few things off my chest and encourage any of you who may be going through difficult situations to hang tight and know that you’re never too tired to go back into battle. Ready? Armor up…

Musings Episode 62: Keep Your Head Up…

Everyone, and I do mean everyone at some point (actually, at times multiple points) has some rough patches in their lives they go through. Everyone copes differently with these moments, depending on the person.

The main thing is that through it all, no matter how many times you’ve fought, how many battles you’ve been through, or how long they’ve lasted, the main thing to remember is to ALWAYS keep your head up.

There may be moments when you’re discouraged, beaten down, and almost feel like giving up. It’s in these moments that you’ve gotta remember you’re strong enough to overcome whatever it is you’re going through – you’re strong enough to take it on head on and come out victor in the end.

It’s absolutely critical you think this way, because like a child who grows up to be an adult, in difficult times optimism can often slip away and become lost.

It’s absolutely critical you hold onto that part of your childhood where optimism, innocence, and undying relentlessness keeps you pushing forward and persevering.

The only way children come to believe in Santa Claus is through these tools.

It’s the thought process we obtain as we get older that causes us to “stop believing” – stop hoping, stop anticipating the good, stop getting excited.

Sometimes, growing up can be one of the worst things to happen, depending on how you take it.

Or it can be the greatest – it all lies in whether or not you choose to accept or reject the majority’s thought process of how you should look at or come to accept situations, people, and experiences in life.

So stay true to being yourself – and remember, no matter what happens, it shall soon pass – and you’ll overcome it, find a way around it, or through it, the way YOU want to.

The only two things.people that have control over your life, is YOU, and the higher force that created you – the creator, universe, Adonai, energy & matter, mother nature, whatever you wanna call it.

Those are the ONLY two. Other than that, no one, and I do mean NO ONE, has the right to DICTATE what turn your life is supposed to take. No one has the right to control your destiny but YOU.

Let someone do that to you and you’ve officially let someone take your power.

No matter what happens, keep your head up…

Musings Episode 36: Promises…

Promises are powerful things. Ever noticed when you were a kid how you hung onto a promise like it was a golden egg? You may have believed so much in promises made by your parents, friends, siblings, the mere thought of that promise being fulfilled kept you in a high mood more than anything else going on that day, or that week.

The fear of a promise being unfulfilled was non-existent to you, and right down at the very core you knew no doubt. If it was said it was going to be done, if it was said it was going to happen, it was…

I’m sure a few times or so a promise may have been broken when you were a kid – and I’m almost definite as adults today anyone of us can relate to the disappointment felt.

This isn’t about the disappointment though. This isn’t about the promise not being carried through. This is about the undying belief and absolute certainty we have when we’re children. Nothing can shake it, and no one can change our minds on it.

promise made promise kept, promise, i promise, promise keepers, promise me, promise quotes, broken promises, optimism, learned optimism, define optimism

Slowly, as people age they have a tendency to be told to face the real world – that promises are broken and things are bound to disappoint.

“No sense in getting your hopes up.”
“Entertain the thought for the child when they’re young, but they need to face reality when they’re older.”

This isn’t a bad thing – in fact, things like these can actually teach you that negativity, doubt, fear, worry, and disbelief are all learnt thoughts – not something you were born with – yet oddly enough, as you’re born in innocence, so you’re born in optimism, positivity, and certainty, too.

That’s a powerful statement in itself.

Born with positives – slowly learn negatives.

This means, you have the power to overcome the negatives – to unlearn, to erase, to remold your thinking. Remold yourself, and your beliefs.

There are times when people become so disappointed in something they bother not believing at all – they become struck with “I’ll believe it when I see it” – yet what they don’t realize is, that in order to see it happen, you have to first believe it.

Many millionaires are not made so by stroke of luck – they believe in themselves. Believe the lifestyle they visualize themselves having. Believe in the car they see themselves driving.

Millionaires, in fact, truly are “visionaries.” Being a visionary isn’t as cut and dry as being able to imagine. It also takes such an undying and deliberate excitement and obsession (in a positive way) that you can literally think up any part of your ideal lifestyle and mentally live it to the point where you feel physically “tingly” or “heady” from the mere thought.

promise, i promise, promise keepers, promise me, promise quotes, broken promises, optimism, learned optimism, define optimism

It’s no magic trick you’ve discovered.

No 90 day miracle training you’re conquered.

You’ve merely gotten in touch with yourself.

…and that? That’s the most productive, and massive step you could take towards your ideal you, that can’t be measured in days or strength – but simply the taming of your thoughts, and clearing out of your mind.

There’s a quote by Bruce Lee…

don't think feel, promises, bruce lee quotes, don't think feel bruce lee, promise, i promise, promise keepers, promise me, promise quotes, broken promises, optimism, learned optimism, define optimism

he had it right – and not just in martial arts. When you truly, vehemently, want to get in touch with or aspire to your true, successful self, while building the plan or structuring the path may require thinking – in the end, it boils down to FEELING every part of the success you want – before it even happens.

FEEL your success, before it happens – and you’ll no longer WANT or YEARN for it – but instead naturally, and gracefully, slide into it. You’ll feel it so much, when it arrives, it’ll FEEL normal.

…and that…? That’s the power of promises. Promises, are beliefs, tied with feelings. Control and alter the feelings in your favor, and your beliefs will effortlessly follow. Get excited about that Maserati or custom built Honda you want. Get excited at the thought of 3 Brazilian models tearing down the highway with you and not having to blink at your gas tank.

promise, i promise, promise keepers, promise me, promise quotes, broken promises, optimism, learned optimism, define optimism, wake up and live

Get excited about your business growing, and increasing in profit, and not having to even utter the words “budget” or “bills” – because they’re more of an accessory, an option, than a priority. Because they get knocked down a peg, when you finally find out how to FEEL success, and flip the cards in your favor.

That’s a promise. Everytime you make it your business to feel the excitement of something good you want, that’s a promise….

…and the only way you can break that promise, is by breaking, or doubting, that feeling.

Come hell or high water, don’t break your promise.

Come hell or high water, don’t break the feeling.

Stay awesome.
