Everything Happens In Your Favor

It is normal to be disappointed when something didn’t go right or when something that you wanted didn’t go through. Disappointments are a part of life. However, in order to grow in well-being, it is important to be able to view the disappointments in another light.

I truly believe in the power that our mind has on our mental, emotional and physical health. I believe that with our mind we have the capacity to cure ourselves if we wanted to. The mind also has the power of making us sick and it is because of this power that I always emphasize how we need to learn to use our mind right. With all this said, it is important that we learn to view that everything happens in our favor.

Everything works in our favor, even when people disappointment us. When an opportunity shuts in your face, it is because there is a bigger more beautiful opportunity waiting to arrive. When a relationship didn’t work out, it’s because there is someone even better for you but for that person to come into your life, the person who is currently in your life needs to leave your side. Something that may seem bad can be an opportunity for growth. It is an opportunity to be able to view things in a way that perhaps you would not have thought of viewing in that way. When something didn’t work out, God knows or the Universe knows what it was trying to avoid you of going through.

I believe that when we view that everything happens in our favor that we get less disappointed. We get angry less often, we are more relaxed and our mind remains clear. In other words, it is beneficial for your health to view things in this manner. We can enjoy greater health because we see how the universe is working towards our well-being.

I have to admit that if you are not used to viewing things in this manner, this will take some time for you to believe and feel. However long it takes, give it time but start now believing that everything happens in your favor. You will see how little by little your life will transform in a beautiful way. I challenge you to start viewing how everything happens in your favor.

Your Life Is For You to Live It However You Want

Nobody is the boss of your life. You don’t have to hold yourself accountable to anyone but yourself. The reality is that nobody is living your life for you. For this reason, you need to live your life the way you feel fit. Of course, without hurting anyone nor yourself. So then, why pay so much attention to what others may think of you? I believe worrying too much about what others may think of us can paralyze us from being who we truly are. This causes complexes and the need of other people’s approval of ourselves and this is not healthy for our well-being.

Part of well-being is having a healthy self-esteem where even though you will always be asking for other people’s opinion which is normal, you first approve of yourself despite others not approving of you. It is being secure of oneself, not in an arrogant way, but having that sense of confidence in yourself that you are the way you are and you are fine just the way you are. That confidence that you were designed with purpose and you are proud of who you are.

Your life is for you to live it however you want because nobody has a right to tell you how to live it. Inside of you, you have a GPS system that guides you and tells you which direction to head with your life. It is a matter of listening to your interior.

Your life is for you to live it however you want and when you live it the way you want without hurting others nor yourself, this will fill you up with happiness and well-being. Your well-being also depends on your happiness and a healthy self-esteem.

Remain In Your Knowing

Today’s blog post is more of a reminder than anything else and this is because many times we forget things that are so crucial to our overall well-being. There is a place to forget certain things because they are not helpful to our overall well-being, but there are other things that we can not afford to forget. For this reason, it’s important to remain in your knowing.

Remain in the knowing that you are loved. This is something that sometimes we tend to forget. We forget because we sometimes are not in the mood. We forget because at the moment things may not go the way we want them to go. We forget because we may not see a manifestation from others of their love. It’s important to remain in the knowing that you are loved regardless of whether or not others are showing you their love. Just because they are not showing you their love, doesn’t mean that they don’t love you. At the end of the day, they, too, are only humans and they too go through their ups and downs. Just because things may not go the way you want them to go doesn’t mean that you are not loved. Perhaps things not going the way you want them to go is an act of love in itself.

Remain in the knowing that you are supported. Sometimes we make the mistake of thinking we are not being supported because we are not seeing that support from others. Remember that there is a higher force supporting you regardless of whether or not others are supporting you.

Remain in the knowing that you are needed. Yes, you are this important! You matter so much! It doesn’t matter what your occupation is, your title or your level of education, you have an important place in life. It’s important to remember this regardless of how others see you or think of you. You are irreplaceable and for this other reason you matter so much.

Remaining in this kind of knowing gives you power. It gives you a boost that I have no words to describe the power it can have in your life. This knowing is uplifting, it makes you stronger, it makes you invincible. It is this feeling and strength that help you get by despite the adversities of life, despite if others may be “against” you, despite the challenges you may encounter.

In order to remain in this knowing, you have to make a daily choice to be in this knowing, to repeat to yourself how you are love and are loved. Repeat to yourself that you are valuable and needed. Repeat to yourself that you are always supported. This repetition will help strengthen those muscles that will make you invincible in life.

How Does Lack of Self-Love Looks Like?

Self-love is so critical to your overall well-being because this is one of the basics for building the foundation of your well-being. Love leads to trust. Love leads to respect. Love leads to healthy boundaries. When it comes to having a healthy relationship with yourself, self-love has to be there.

But many times, that lack of self-love tends to wear a mask and we think we love ourselves but in reality we don’t. It is when we lack self-love that we find ourselves in situations where we not only question ourselves but we question whether or not we deserve certain things, we self-sabotage, and the list goes on.

So with this said, how does lack of self-love looks like? Lack of self-love looks like you coming up with excuses for why someone disrespects you. It masks itself in you blaming yourself all the time for everything that goes wrong. It looks like you abandoning certain aspects of you and so you seek elsewhere for what you think you need. Lack of self-love also reveals itself in the choices that you make. Lack of self-love wears many masks that it is not possible to discuss them all in one post but I will focus on the ones I just mentioned here.

I’m going to elaborate a little bit on each of these things. The first one which is you coming up with excuses for why someone disrespects you. First off, there are no excuses or reasons for someone to disrespect you, I don’t care what the other person claims their reasons are. Someone disrespecting you is a reflection of who they are and how they feel about themselves. You allowing the disrespect is a reflection of the way you feel about yourself. You allowing the disrespect means you don’t feel deserving of respect which means you don’t love yourself. Remember that love is respect.

The second mask that lack of self-love wears is you blaming yourself for everything that goes wrong. There is a big difference between taking responsibility for what happens in your life and blaming yourself for everything that goes wrong. One leads to greater well-being because it leads to growth and the other is just plain negative and only chips from your self-esteem. There is a negative energy to blaming because it is accusatory. It implies that you did something so wrong and only you did wrong. There is no learning from the experience with blame. Blame leads to shame. There is no love in shame.

The third mask is you abandoning certain aspects of yourself and searching elsewhere for what you think you need. First, the things that you actually need you won’t find it elsewhere. That is because it first resides within you. You abandoning certain aspects of yourself means you not tending to your own needs, you not paying attention to your emotions. It’s also you not filling yourself up with the love, care and attention you need. You first need you before anyone else needs you. No one else needs you more than you.

The fourth thing I mention is that lack of self-love reveals itself in the choices you make. You want to know if you truly love yourself? Just look at the choices you make on a daily basis. What are the choices you make when it comes to food? What are the choices you make when it comes to friends? What are the choices you make when it comes to companionship? What are the choices you make when it comes to your feelings? All these, if you take a close look, will reveal to you whether or not you truly love yourself.

Are You Bombarded With the Should’s?

I can tell you from personal experience that being bombarded with the should’s is the fastest way to burnout. Burnout doesn’t contribute to your well-being. It takes away from your well-being. Greater well-being requires that you have things that ADD to your well-being, not that take away from your well-being. Because the should’s take away from your well-being, I feel the need to write about this.

The thoughts and feelings of “I should do this”, “I should do that”, “I should do this because my goals are…..”, none of this even sounds positive. There is no positive energy in the should’s.

So, what can you do with the should’s when the reality is that there are things that you must do because you have certain goals? Well, the answer is to reframe those should’s.

Reframing means to literally change the frame of something, meaning the “look” for lack of a better word of a situation. Just like the frame changes the look of a photo, the frame that you put on a situation changes your perspective and feel of things. So what you are going to do is change your perspective of the situation.

I remember back when I was so disciplined in toning up my body. I would spend several hours food shopping and several more hours cooking and prepping my meals. I would carry my food everywhere I went. All this, after a while, felt like a chore for me- a chore that I was getting tired of doing. It was at that moment that I knew I needed to reframe the way I was viewing everything that I was doing.

I needed to remember why I was doing everything that I was doing. I needed to picture myself with the body I wanted. I needed to remind myself to enjoy the process. I changed my should’s to wants. I want to go food shopping. I want to spend my time in the kitchen. I want to prep my meals.

So the answer is to change your should’s to wants. You want to do whatever it is that you feel it’s a drag to do. You want to because you enjoy it. It’s in the reframing your should’s that you will no longer be bombarded by them. That’s when life becomes enjoyable because you are enjoying the process rather than just going through the motions. You start enjoying the process because you are not only focused on the outcome.

Should’s, they don’t need to bombard you. It is just a matter of reframing your should’s so that you no longer feel like you are obligated to do the things that need to be done in order for you to get your desired result.

What Kind of Well-Being Do You Want?

We all want a great life, there is no doubt about it. But the problem isn’t the wanting a great life as much as knowing how that great life looks like.

Wanting anything is never enough, that is just the start. You have to have clarity about what it is that you want. It is that clarity that can provide you with direction. That clarity can help you with the how.

So, I would like to ask you, what kind of well-being do you want? How does it look like? How does it feel like? What does it consist of? How do you wake up feeling? How do you feel before going to sleep? What kind of people are in your life? These are just some of the many questions to ask yourself when it comes to getting a visual for how that well-being is for you.

You can’t get what you want unless you have a clear image of how that looks like. Same thing when it comes to well-being. This isn’t any different. The more you understand yourself, the better your life will be. The more you know yourself, the more power you have in your life. True power comes from mastering yourself. During the process of mastering yourself, things can get ugly because the process is not always easy but it is a must.

Today’s post is not going to be a long one only because the questions that I just asked you earlier in this post are so powerful that to answer all these will take you some time. It is in sitting with yourself that you will grow in ways that you never imagined possible. So with today’s post, I would like to encourage you to think about the kind of well-being that you want to experience. From this point, you will be able to start living the life you have always wanted to live.

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.

Know Your Values

These past few years have been nothing but growth for me. This growth, though, came with so much disappointment and hurt but the lessons are so valuable that I can’t put a price to this. One of the things that I learned was the importance of truly knowing what your values are.

The reason why you want to know what your values are is because if you want to attract the kind of people that you need, the friendships that will truly nurture your soul, the loving man or woman that you want, etc. it’s important to know what you value. For instance, I realized these past two years that I truly value people who don’t consistently speak awful about others whether that be their family, friends, etc. Why? Because to me this shows me what the person is capable of saying even about me and it tells me what is in their heart.

When you know what you truly value, you will attract and let in those things and people that align with what you value. But unless you get a good understanding of who you are and what matters most to you, you can’t position yourself to allow only the things, people and situations that you truly want.

So, how do you know what your values are? Well, this comes with self-analysis. It comes with the willingness to go deep within you to understand what truly matters most to you. It takes a willingness to want to take the time for you to know who you are. And it takes a willingness to grow. Know that as you get older, your values may slightly change due to the experiences you have. Every encounter you have, every relationship, every circumstance will shape you in some way.

If you allow the growth, you allow the lessons that you are meant to learn. You will allow yourself to be a little better than yesterday. You will allow yourself more wisdom. It is through this growth that you will learn more about your own values.

When you know your values, you won’t waste your time on relationships that will just have you spiraling down. You don’t allow circumstances that don’t add to you. You are more willing to let go of the things that are not working for you no matter how good those things may look on the surface.

The values that I am referring to in today’s post are the ones that are truly aligned with your true essence. Know that there are times when we may have values that conflict with one another, which is something that I mention because of personal experience. I will get into conflicting values on another post. For now, it’s important that you become aware of the values that you know that will add to your life greatly. This is why in my coaching program, I coach people on knowing their deep down important values because this is part of mastering yourself to greater well-being.

So, if you find yourself in constant opposition to what you want in life, missing the mark or just not getting what you want, then you have to look into your values. This will help indicate to you the direction you need to be heading in life. I would like to invite you in today’s post to take a look at your values if you see anything that isn’t the way you want it to be.
