Affirmations and self improvement
Today is the best day of your life. The perfect day is today, not tomorrow or yesterday. Self improvement and affirmations can help you change and achieve success.
When we look at a certain object, a painting for example – we will not be able to appreciate what is in it, what is painted and what else goes with it if the painting is just an inch away from our face. However, if we try to take it a little further, we will have a clearer vision of the whole artwork.
We reach a point in our life when we are ready for change and a whole bunch of information that will help us unlock our self-improvement and achieve success now. Until then, something can be staring us right under our nose but we do not see it. The only time we think of unlocking our self-improvement is when everything gets worst.
Take the frog principle for example –
Try placing Frog A in a pot of boiling water. What happens? He twerps! He jumps off! Why? Because he is not able to tolerate sudden change in his environment – the water’s temperature. Then try Frog B: place him in luke warm water, and then turn the gas stove on. Wait until the water reaches a certain boiling point. Frog B then thinks “Ooh… it’s a bit warm in here”.
People are like Frog B in general. Today, Anna thinks Carl hates her. Tomorrow, Patrick walks up to her and told her he hates her. Anna stays the same and does not mind what her friends say. The next day, she learned that Kim and John also abhor her. Anna does not realize at once the importance and the need for self-improvement, until the entire community hates her.
We learn our lessons when we experience pain. We finally see the warning signs and signals when things get rough and tough. When do we realize that we need to change diets? When none of our jeans and shirts fit us. When do we stop eating candies and chocolates? When all of our teeth have fallen out. When do we realize that we need to stop smoking? When our lungs have gone bad. When do we pray and ask for help? When we realize that, we are going to die tomorrow.
The only time most of us ever learn about unlocking our self improvement and achieve success is when the whole world is crashing and falling apart. We think and feel this way because it is not easy to change. However, change becomes more painful when we ignore it.
Change will happen, like it or hate it. At one point or another, we are all going to experience different turning points in our life and we are all going to eventually unlock our self improvement. The Greatest Secrets of Life and Reality are Revealed, not because the world says so, not because our friends are nagging us, but because we realized it is for our own good.
Happy people do not just accept change, they embrace it. Now, you do not have to feel a tremendous heat before realizing the need for self-improvement. Unlocking your self improvement means unlocking yourself up in the cage of thought that “it’s just the way I am”. It is such a poor excuse for people who fear and resist change. Most of us program our minds like computers.
Jen repeatedly tells everyone that she does not have the guts to be around groups of people. She heard her mom, her dad; her sister and her teacher tell the same things about her to other people. Over the years, that is what Jen believes. She believes it is her story. In addition, what happens? Every time a great crowd would troop over their house, in school, and in the community she tends to step back, shy away and lock herself up in a room.
Jen did not only believed in her story, she lived it. Jen has to realize that she is not what she is in her story. Instead of having her story post around her face for everyone to remember, she has to have the spirit and show people “I am an important person and I should be treated accordingly!”
Self improvement may not be everybody’s favorite word, but if we look at things in a different point of view, we might have greater chances of enjoying the whole process instead of counting the days until we are fully improved. Three sessions in a week at the gym would result to a healthier life, reading books instead of looking at porn’s will shape up a more profound knowledge, going out with friends and peers will help you take a step back from work and unwind. Moreover, just when you are enjoying the whole process of unlocking your self-improvement power, you will realize that you are beginning to take things light and become happy.
Look at it this way. All the thoughts you have held and all the words you have repeatedly used have created your life up to now. Every thought has shaped your life and has made you what you are today. At this exact moment (Now) you are what you have thought through the whole of your life, so, achieve success now
Everything you think and consequently do from this moment on, will determine what happens tomorrow. Once that thought process has taken place and a decision is taken, an action is formed. Once that action is put into motion the law of cause and effect is set into motion.
Remember, once the law of cause and effect is set in motion, you cannot easily change the outcome. You can try, but you will only set another cause and effect in motion. You can only hope that this second action will counteract the first, but there are no guarantees.
We all live in the moment of “now”. Think about that. If you are thinking about the past, you are thinking it now. If you are thinking about the future, you are thinking it now. Now is always the present. Therefore, when you are planning your future you are planning it now. The point of power is always in the present moment. This is where we begin to make changes.
Many books have been written on the subject of obtaining success. You may be one of those people that have read many of these. However, for many they read book after book on the subject, but will never actually put what they have learnt into practice. By all means read more and gain a greater understanding, but put it into practice.
So please start now. You can read and read, but if you never start to implement what you have read into practice you will never succeed. Never put off what you can do today until tomorrow.
Do not wait for the right moment. Some people can wait all their lives for the right moment.
There is only one right moment and this is that moment.
The moment that the greatest secrets of life and reality are revealed.
