It is time for you to develop an abundance mindset.
How do you stop making things so complicated? Most things are simpler than they appear. We don’t always see this because… The human brain is a stimulation hog. It likes being busy. The brain keeps busy by understanding, solving, deciding, debating, arguing, influencing, growing, opine-ing or whining. It’s always working. This means that even if something is … Continue reading How To Stop Making Things So Complicated
Want to develop a new habit? Keep starting over and over.
Life gets messy. And I mean that literally. The average American house has over 300000 items in it. That is a lot of stuff. And all of that stuff leads to clutter.
I’m sure each and every one of us has a tale to tell about clutter. With the rise of mass consumerism; the amount we purchase, consume, and ultimately store (often out of sight) has increased drastically. We just have too much stuff!
It seems that we have developed an obsession with material possessions or “things”, which, on the whole, don’t serve us at all. Perhaps at the time of purchase, we experienced that instant gratification. But very rarely, if at all, is that gratification sustaining.
The downside of this is that we find ourselves cluttering up our environment and our homes. Tied to this is a host of other problems.
“Anyone with an overflowing closet or totally stuffed…

I love comments so please share your thoughts. Thank you!
The paradox of our time
in history is that
we have taller buildings but shorter tempers;
wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints.
We spend more, but have less;
we buy more but enjoy less
We have bigger houses and smaller families,
more conveniences, but less time;
we have more degrees, but less sense;
more knowledge, but less judgement;
more experts, yet more problems,
more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much,
spend too recklessly,
laugh too little,
drive too fast,
get too angry,
stay up too late, get up too tired,
read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.
We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life,
we’ve added years to life not life to years.

The Present Moment As a Loved One
Have you ever thought of the present moment as a loved one?
I’ve been working with this thought lately, and I find it helpful when I’m feeling rushed, distracted, worried, upset, frustrated, anxious, sad, irritated(which is a lot it seems).
Let’s think for a moment about our relationship with this loved one we might call The Present Moment …
- We barely pay attention to it, thinking instead of what we have to do later, things we’re worried about, etc.
- If it’s boring or uncomfortable, we habitually turn away from it and go to distractions, rejecting the Present Moment.
- We judge it as good or bad, pleasant or uncomfortable, and dislike it if it isn’t behaving the way we want.
- We don’t accept it as it is, but want more, are worried we’re missing out, think we should be doing something else.
- When we’re…

Full concentration on a single act. One thing at time. Being present in every moment.
Taking some of my own advice!
Even the most motivated of us — you, me, Tony Robbins — can feel unmotivated at times. In fact, sometimes we get into such a slump that even thinking about making positive changes seems too difficult.
But it’s not hopeless: with some small steps, baby ones in fact, you can get started down the road to positive change.
Yes, I know, it seems impossible at times. You don’t feel like doing anything. I’ve been there, and in fact I still feel that way from time to time(yesterday!!!). You’re not alone. But I’ve learned a few ways to break out of a more serious slump, and we’ll take a look at those today.
Being Motivated Can Seem Elusive
Most people will go through a slump at some point in their lives, when trying to get motivated to do ANYTHING is a struggle. Again, I feel that way sometimes myself, and in fact…
