Fight Your Demons

What I will be writing this week I can definitely tell you from personal experience that this is a difficult one. I can also guarantee you that anything that promises a fast solution, a quicker way of getting there or anything that guarantees you anything fast, are just phonies. Why? Because ANYTHING that you want, that person you know deep down inside that you are and those things that you have yet to acquire requires that you fight your demons and these demons can be quite downright nasty.

You may be wondering what demons am I referring to. Well, those demons can be anything from your limiting beliefs, your self-talk, your physical environment, your thoughts, your emotions, and as you can see, the list goes on. The reason why I call these demons is because they are exactly that- they rob you of your happiness, they stop you from living your joy, they hinder you from believing that you are meant for greatness and they stop you from living your truth.

The reason why, and I can tell you from personal experience, you may be still stuck in the same situation over and over again in life no matter how hard you try to change the situation is because you have demons that you probably are not aware of their existence and you probably don’t know what to do to overcome this.

If you want certain things in life and you notice that you are not having those things, then you have demons to fight. The first step in fighting those demons is to first be aware of their existence. You can’t overcome something that you are not aware what it is. It’s like you feel you are not yourself but you are not acknowledging that you are experiencing certain symptoms. You can’t stop what is going on if you first don’t acknowledge that something is going on.

The second step is in questioning what that demon is. Where is it coming from? What is causing it? Questioning this demon of yours will help you understand it’s existence.

And the third step would be to find something that would kill this demon. Now this may not be easy and it may come with resistance. This is when it becomes necessary to remember how this is ruining your life and how this is stopping you from living the life that you want.

Life is not meant to be a constant struggle. Life is not meant for you to live with limits. Life is not meant for you to live feeling not deserving. Life is not meant for you to live constantly attracting what you don’t want. When this is what you are currently experiencing, that means there is inner work to be done. This means there are things that needs to be resolved and taken care of within you. This is not a bad thing. On the contrary, all this leads to better self-care, which is very much needed if you want to be your best version.

It is because I truly believe that life is not supposed to be a struggle, on the contrary, you are meant to be living a life where you are living authentically and very happy, that I created the FREE course, The Path to Your Nirvana™, so that you can start gaining a deeper understanding of why you are not living the life that you want and what you can do to change that.

Remember that fighting your demons will help liberate you so that you can live the life that you have been wanting to live. It is crucial that you take this step if you find yourself going in circles in life and know that this is very much possible for you to do.

What To Do With Setbacks

This past weekend I had what I called a setback. This is a setback that is spilling over to other areas of my life and I just kept wondering why. Why can’t I seem to be moving forward the way I want to? Why is it that things are not working or going the way I want them or need them to go? Why, why, why? I’m pretty sure most of you have had moments like this in your life as well and so I feel it is important to write about what to do with setbacks.

First let’s define what a setback is. A setback can be a difficulty you are encountering at the moment, a reversal in what you are doing meaning that instead of moving forward you are moving backwards or something that you feel or think is standing in your way. We all go through setbacks at some point in our life because there is value in every setback. I was tempted to say that we go through setbacks because that’s life but that is like saying that life is meant to have some difficulties and I don’t think that is it.

So with this said, then what can one do with setbacks? Because there is value to setbacks, (remember this one-value, this is key so remember this) this is an opportunity for growth. You can grow spiritually, mentally, physically and you can even learn something about yourself that you didn’t know before. One of the things that we should always feel encouraged to do is learn because learning is part of growth in every way. Setbacks can offer you the opportunity to strengthen a belief or a value that you perhaps didn’t believe to be true before. For instance, if you have a year that you get sick a lot, your physical state can be a setback because as a result of how you feel, there are things that you have to put on hold since the main concern is your health. However, this one setback can provide you with the knowledge not just in the mind but in the heart of how important your body is and how important it is the way you treat it. Because of this experience, you now fully understand the value of your body, the value in how you treat it because what you just went through hit home for you. Even seeing a relative getting sick can hit home for you how important it is to take care of yourself.

Setbacks can be an opportunity for you to see a side of yourself that perhaps had it not been for that setback, you would have never known that about yourself. An example of this could be perhaps you are being challenged to do something and in the process you learn that you need to be more patient or be more organized. There is always something about ourselves that we can learn that we don’t know yet. I am one to believe that there is so much to us and so much learning to do when it comes to ourselves.

Setbacks don’t have to be a problem nor an obstacle. It may feel that way in this present time but if you dig deep and pay close attention, you will find lessons hidden in that setback that can help enrich your life in so many ways than you can possibly imagine. It’s all in paying close attention and being willing to learn.
