Why Is It Important to Build the Foundation of Your Well-Being

A house without a solid foundation, no matter how pretty it looks, it is only a matter of time for that house to fall down. This is because for anything, a foundation needs to be created. The same goes for your well-being.

The foundation of your well-being is you. You are the foundation. Unless you are right, unless you are strong within, unless you are mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically right, nothing in your life can be right.

The reason why you want a strong foundation is because everything, absolutely everything starts with you. For your relationship with others to be healthy, you first must have a healthy relationship with yourself. For your body to be right, you first must have a healthy relationship with your body. For you not to allow things to affect you in such a personal way, you first need to be right mentally and emotionally. For you to be able to handle the difficult moments in life, you have to have a strong connection with yourself.

Nothing in your life can work unless you are right. Nothing in your life can go well unless you are well. Everything is a reflection of you. This is why you need to have a strong foundation if you want great well-being. You do this by doing the inner work. You do this by mastering yourself. There is no other way around it.

Mastering yourself leads to freedom. Mastering yourself leads to self-confidence. Mastering yourself leads to ultimate happiness. There is nothing like you mastering yourself to the point where you know where you are heading, you know your value, you know what you’re all about.

So with today’s post, I would like to encourage you to start building that foundation of well-being and that foundation is YOU. Hire a coach if you need to. If you have any deep and personal issues, hire a psychologist or therapist. Do whatever you need to do in order to get yourself fit mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically. You are worth the investment!

Are You Feeding the Negative Emotion?

This is an extremely important topic because many times we overlook how we are feeding the emotions we are feeling. So, if you or anyone you know is constantly feeling the blues, feeling overwhelmed or feeling empty, this post will be of value for you.

If you are constantly feeling any “negative” emotion, have you considered the fact that perhaps you are unknowingly feeding that “negative” emotion? The reason why I write the word negative in quotation marks is because I don’t think any emotion is negative. However, they can turn negative when we don’t learn and understand that emotion that we are feeling.

Any emotion that you are feeling is just feedback from your soul. It is your job to sit with it for a bit and understand it. Just like you would sit with your child and listen to him/her when he/she is feeling a certain way, it’s important that you do the same with yourself. This is a form of self-love and self-care. It is when we don’t do this that we start to neglect ourselves. When we neglect ourselves, those emotions that one would consider negative then turns negative,  which eventually then starts eating us up, affecting other areas of our life.

Our actions, apart from our thinking, also affect our emotions. So if you constantly find yourself feeling down, worried, anxious, etc., you have to consider the actions that you are taking. Are you feeding that emotion that you are feeling? If so, why?

You may wonder “how am I feeding this emotion if I don’t want to feel this way?!” Well, good question! We don’t intentionally do this but sometimes we do. The way you may be constantly feeding that emotion is if, say for example, you are feeling depressed and so you feel like not doing anything. The very act of not doing anything, just sitting there and not going out, not getting yourself dressed, is feeding that emotion. If you feel fear of doing something that you know would be very helpful for you and would move you forward, you giving into that fear is feeding that emotion.

I know it is easier said that done but it is necessary to be conscious of the actions you take and not feed that emotion. If you feel very down and you feel like not doing anything, do the opposite of what you are feeling. Do something because this will break what you are feeling. The more you keep feeding that emotion, the worse you will feel. This is when it becomes a cycle that seems difficult to break.

For your well-being, it is a must to be conscious of your actions and feelings. It is a must to break any emotion that can become negative for you. You break it by not feeding that emotion. You stop feeding it by doing the opposite of what you are feeling.

With today’s post, I would like to encourage you that if you are feeling the blues on a consistent basis, if you are feeling overwhelmed, stressed, etc., look into your actions and don’t feed that emotion. As you do this, I promise you that you will start to feel better with time.

The Same Ol’ Same Ol’……

I would like to discuss this on today’s post because many times the reason why we feel so bored, frustrated, stuck, down, among other “negative” emotions that just rob our joy of living is precisely that- the same ol’ same ol’.

There are times when things being just the way they are is a great thing because things can always be worse. But, if this is the way you are feeling about your life, it is a matter of time for “negative” emotions to come to the surface.

Life becomes enjoyable when there is spice in our life. The truth is that we need a little bit of everything in order to feel great about life. Too much is the same as too little, as the saying goes in Italian. It’s in having a bit of everything that you are able to have balance.

One thing that you must remember is that you are the one who puts that spice in your life. No one else can do that for you. You are the one who knows exactly the recipe to your exciting life. No one else can get it quite like you can.

Now, you may be fooled into thinking that you need others in order to add that spice to life. Yes, your relationship with others is very important and others do play a role in your overall well-being but, one thing you must remember is that every relationship starts first with you.

In order for you to be able to add that spice in your life, you have to be right within you. You need to be centered, fully nurtured, fully loved, fully taken care of, fully appreciated and all this must first come from you.

You are the one who needs from you first. Others don’t need you first; remember that you are the one who needs you first. This is because only from a place of you being so full that you are able to give your best to others. It is only from a place of love that you are able to give genuine love to others.

Your spice will come from you knowing yourself so well to the point that you do and give yourself exactly what you need in order to be fully happy. Your spice will come from feeling so secure within yourself and that security comes from within. You get that security through self-mastery- there is no other way around it.

If you find yourself saying “same ol’ same ol’ ” and this just doesn’t feel good to you, it’s time to add some spice in your life. It’s time to shake things up a bit. It’s time for a change. Change for everyone will mean something different and it will be different for everyone. It could mean a change in your routine, a change in mindset, a change of job, where you live, etc.

Know that your life is not meant to be stagnant. Know that you are not meant to settle for something that just doesn’t feel right. Know that none of this leads to greater well-being. It’s important that you take responsibility for this and make the change necessary in order to make your life into one that you love.

I would like to invite you to take the FREE course I created called The Path to Your Nirvana™, which is a 28 day course with 5 steps meant to help you live your own happiness by understanding first what is getting in the way of you being on your own path of happiness, how to overcome it, learning to understand your actions and focus and getting you to the path that your true essence has in store for you.

What Is Your Hidden Disease?

Sometimes what we have to be careful with is not with what we know but what we don’t know. Why? Because it’s what we don’t know what can hurt us the most. It’s said that knowledge is power and it is true. But it’s not just knowledge that provides us with power, awareness is also power in its own way.

How is awareness power? Awareness is equivalent to a light being shined on something. When you shine the light on something, it’s no longer in the dark. It’s no longer something you don’t know. It’s no longer something that can sabotage you. It’s no longer something that can creep up on you.

Many times the reason why we don’t have the life how we quite want it- we attract things we don’t want, have relationships that are below satisfying, don’t find ourselves quite where we want to be or even sabotage good things that come our way- is because there are things that are not in our awareness that are messing us up.

It is for this reason that I ask you what is your hidden disease. Is it low self-esteem that you may not be aware of? Is it a past experience that has traumatized you in some way? Is it a limiting belief? Is it some kind of emotion that has become toxic? There are many things that can actually block us tremendously without our awareness.

All these things I just mentioned above are just some of the many hidden diseases that may be hidden without us knowing. They are hidden diseases because they spread, contaminating our whole life, paralyzing us and preventing us from enjoying greater well-being.

Many times we don’t know about these hidden diseases until it is so obvious that something is seriously wrong. Just like when we physically don’t know that the body is ill until we see symptoms that we just can’t ignore. These hidden diseases are always giving us signs but many times we tend to ignore them. If you want greater well-being, it is important that you don’t ignore these signs.

Don’t let hidden diseases get the best of you. Know that you are the one in control at all times of yourself and your life. Yes, there are certain things you don’t have control but those things are external things like the weather, other people’s actions and choices, etc. But when it comes to your inner self, you are the one in control.

You are more than welcome to share with me in the comments below what are your hidden diseases and what are you going to do to overcome them. Remember and I will repeat this again, when it comes to your inner self, you are the one in control.

I would like to invite you to take the FREE course I created called The Path to Your Nirvana™, which is a 28 day course with 5 steps meant to help you live your own happiness by understanding first what is getting in the way of you being on your own path of happiness, how to overcome it, learning to understand your actions and focus and getting you to the path that your true essence has in store for you.

It’s Important to Laugh at Yourself

I shared this message on the Facebook page, @AuraEMartinezCoach, but I will share it here as well since I think it is a very important message to share.

I would first like to share that Monday, March 4th I went to Cancun, Mexico for a personal development and training event because I truly believe that in order for me to be able to offer the best to you, I have to treat myself with the best and be coached and mentored. The day that I arrived, I was so sleepy since I was already jet lagged. On top of that, I woke up very early for that flight so I hardly slept that night.

Going straight to the chase, I was so out of it that day that when I arrived, I thought I left my room key on the bench that’s in front of the restaurant where I ate that day. It wasn’t until the waiter asked me my room number that I realized, looking in my purse, that I didn’t have the key. So the waiter checked the bench, it wasn’t there. She checked inside the menu the key wasn’t there. At that point I was a bit freaked out at the thought that someone else took the key because I was convinced I had left it on the bench. So I asked the waiter to put the food on hold, which I already ordered, and went to the reception desk to change rooms. That’s when I was given another key to activate the new one and deactivate the old one. When I got to the room because I wanted to activate the new key, the old key that I thought I left on the bench was in the bathroom.

Then for dinner, I went out with my business bestie and when it came time to pay, yes I had pesos but my mind just couldn’t do any conversion anything or anything foreign, again, I was so out of it. So for some reason I didn’t see the 500 pesos bills, I thought they were 100 pesos, didn’t see the 5. The waiter thanked me so much and she was so kind to let me know that she couldn’t accept the tip because it was too high of a tip. That’s when I realized that I had given a $100 dollars tip basically. Yeah, I know!

Theeeennnn, when I arrived to my room, I had all my mini liquids in a Ziploc bag and in it was a clear nail polish. So the bag just slipped out of my hand, fell on the floor and the nail polish broke. So there was clear nail polish all over the little bottles inside the Ziploc bag and the french manicure that I had done got all smeared because of the clear nail polish. There goes my french manicure! And to top it off, I went downstairs in the hotel to the spa place to see if they sell clear nail polish. Well, they had every other color EXCEPT the clear nail polish, of course. At this point at the spa I’m trying on colors that may be close to a clear nail polish and I found one and tried to put some on and as I was doing that, the lady at the spa was like “You can’t do that ma’am because that is for the spa”.

Looking back it was such a comical day. I just laughed the whole day at the whole situation because even though I was in that situation, it was still funny. So the message I want to share with you is that it’s important to learn how to laugh at yourself.

It’s important because life is also about you making a fool out of yourself. It’s about hiccups. It’s about things not going perfect. It’s about disappointments. When you expect things to go exactly how you want them to go, things will go south pretty fast because you will feel that life is not meeting your expectations. Instead, choose to believe and remember that life is ALWAYS meeting your expectations no matter what. Choose to forgive yourself for your mistakes or things not going right. Choose to laugh whenever you make a fool out of yourself. Choose to know that it is ok if you don’t know this or that. And if someone says something stupid, laugh. What other people say is NONE of your business. What other people think is NONE of your business.

The faster you can laugh at all the things that go wrong in your life, the better you will feel about things and things rather than go down, they will start going up. Know that you have a choice in your thoughts and beliefs. Just like I mentioned on my social media, what are you choosing to think and feel today? That matters.

Now I have to mention that if you find that it is a challenge to laugh at yourself when things don’t go right, then there is something else going on that you may not be aware. I can’t emphasize enough how beneficial the FREE course, The Path to Your Nirvana™, will be for you in order to uncover what is stopping you from your unique happiness. It will help you uncover blocks that perhaps you are not aware that you have. All you have to do is click on the link https://bit.ly/2QbBZW4, put your name, email address and choose which language you prefer.

So, I would like to encourage you to learn to laugh at yourself when things don’t go right, when you mess up, when you act funny, etc. This will add tremendously to your well-being in ways that you just can’t imagine.

I would like to invite you to take the FREE course I created called The Path to Your Nirvana™, which is a 28 day course with 5 steps meant to help you live your own happiness by understanding first what is getting in the way of you being on your own path of happiness, how to overcome it, learning to understand your actions and focus and getting you to the path that your true essence has in store for you.

From What Lens Are You Looking At Things?

As I was walking down the block, a thought crossed my mind. The thought of how indeed we all have different lenses that determine how we view things and how we feel about things which affects the way we react to things.

In case you are wondering what do I mean with lens, I mean your perspective- the way you decide to view your world, the things around you and what happens in life.

If you find yourself constantly struggling, or at least it feels this way; if you constantly find yourself feeling frustrated; if you feel anger that you may not understand where it is coming from, I would like to invite you to ask yourself, from what lens are you looking at things?

The way we view things shape our world. We view things the way we do based on our conditioning and we may not even be aware of its existence. Our experiences shape our conditioning. How we were raised shapes our conditioning. The opportunities we have had in life or lack of shape our conditioning. What we saw growing up shapes our conditioning. The list goes on and on in terms of what shapes our conditioning.

It is once you are able to bring to light those conditionings that you will know what lens you use and you are then able to change your life, if you find yourself not happy with your life at the moment. It is sometimes the lens with which we decide to look at things that doesn’t allow us to be happy.

If you find yourself in this situation, I highly recommend you sign up for the FREE course, The Path to Your Nirvana, where you will learn what is standing in the way of your path to your unique happiness. You just click on the link https://bit.ly/2QbBZW4, put your name, email and choose which language you prefer. I can’t stress enough how helpful this course will be for you once you follow the course and listen to the affirmation audio that is included as a bonus.

Know that the lens you are using is a choice. At any moment you can choose to change the lens you have to one that is favorable for you. You have more power than you think you have. But you first have to believe in this power.

Changing the lens you use requires you to have awareness of the lens you are currently using, why and where did the lens come from to begin with. Then, it takes making the conscious choice to change that lens on a daily basis. This may be easy for some people to do on their own, for others, they may need some assistance in being able to change the lens and I want to say that if this is the case for you, there is nothing wrong in seeking help when you need it.

Depending on the situation, you may need a therapist or a coach to assist you with that. Getting the help you need doesn’t make you weak at all, if anything, it is a sign of strength because it means you admit that you need help and are willing to do what it takes to get yourself to the next level.

So with today’s post, if you find yourself not happy with something or a situation, if you find yourself frustrated, I would like to invite you to ask yourself, from what lens are you look at things. Is this lens allowing you to see clearly? Are you seeing things blurry? Does it make you happy to see things from this perspective? These are all questions to consider which will allow you to determine if it’s time to change the lens you are currently using.

I also would like to invite you to take the FREE course I created called The Path to Your Nirvana™, which is a 28 day course with 5 steps meant to help you live your own happiness by understanding first what is getting in the way of you being on your own path of happiness, how to overcome it, learning to understand your actions and focus and getting you to the path that your true essence has in store for you.

How You May Unknowingly Be Stepping Away From Your Power

Sometimes we do things we don’t realize that hurt us. We all want happiness, there is no denying of that but we sometimes unknowingly make ourselves unhappy. Being unhappy takes away from your well-being. Part of happiness is knowing and stepping into your power and it is because of this that I would like to write about how you may unknowingly be stepping away from your power.

You unknowingly step away from your power when you hold on to things, situations, people, relationships, etc. that don’t serve you or don’t make you happy. I know how hard it can be to let go, trust me I do. I have held on to people and situations for way too long that didn’t serve me at all. If anything, holding on to those people and situations were just a waste of my time and it made me feel worse and worse with time. So do yourself a favor and let go NOW of the things that no longer serve you. It is important to trust that things are still working out for your favor no matter what.

You unknowingly step away from your power when you are not honest with yourself. I believe I wrote a post on the importance of being honest with yourself even if it hurts. Being honest liberates you. It’s best to feel bad now for a little bit than feel really bad down the road because you were not honest with yourself. Honesty can be one of the hardest things to do but it is a must if you are to grow in well-being. It will liberate you from things and situations you don’t need in your life.

You unknowingly step away from your power when you are not grateful for what you have at this very moment. I don’t know how to describe it but there is something so soothing about thanking God, the universe, whatever you believe in, for all that you currently have. There is emotional and mental power in you being grateful for all you have right now. It brings joy, it brings peace and you will feel loved when you live in gratitude.

You unknowingly step away from your power when you focus on the things that go wrong instead of all the things that are right with your life. Your focus is everything. Your focus determines your energy, your perspective, your emotions, your current physical state since mind influences the way the body will be, etc. Focus on what’s right and more right things will come to you. If this doesn’t come easy, just take baby steps. Catch yourself when you focus on the negative things and change it to positive things.

You unknowingly step away from your power when your self-talk is negative. It’s important to learn to be your own cheerleader. Not all the time will those who usually cheer you up be there when you need them. This is why you need to learn to be your own cheerleader and you do this through your self-talk. If your vocabulary consists of negative words and phrases, this needs to be changed if you are to change your life. Be mindful of the words you use and be mindful of the energy behind those words. The energy, too, matters a lot.

This post would be very long if I were to list more ways that you may unknowingly step away from your power but pay attention to one key indicator that doesn’t lie and it is your emotions. If your emotions are negative emotions, pay attention to how you may have unknowingly stepped away from your power. Your emotions don’t lie. Start now to step into your power. Doing this will add greatly to your well-being.
