Tag Archives: Believe in ourselves

to Strive to get lessons of living life

One of our readers  officially graduated from the Dale Carnegie course which strives to teach the lesson of living life, which is something that reader and we do believe each of us should constantly be conscious of and getting better at.

That visitor of our ecclesia-site like so many would love to see his best version of himself. Understandably would not be that the best thing to hope for?

He knows there is no substitute for good health and we can do a lot to keep ourselves well. Too often lots of people do forget that we have a lot of power over our lives and we can effectively realize and use it by just being intentional. As told more than once at this site, the ideal visualization of the future generates positive feelings and hopes, which is an important part of the journey to get there. We have to set a goal and think positively.

The nagging feeling in itself is not a great motivator or productivity inducer. Even worse constant confrontation with the negative thought pulls us down. So we better avoid contact with negativeness, be it thoughts or even negative people or people who have a bad influence on us.

We should have confidence in ourselves, knowing that what we want to do is not impossible! concerning that matter he writes

And this probability is not from factors outside of our control. The ratio shows how many people come up with the strength to win against the odds. It can be up to us what side of this ratio we land on. {Draw Your Future}

He looks at Patti Dobrolowski her model and wants to highlight her explanation of a factor that makes her strategy work:

Your brain actually emits serotonin and oxytocin when you draw and dream. So you feel happy. Capable. Creative.” Who wouldn’t want to feel that? Without getting too scientific about it, serotonin and oxytocin do affect mood positively and they can also be attained by exercise or a detailed daydream so whenever you need a boost, you can also try that. {Draw Your Future}

All of us should know we are fallible, but all those around us are as us also not perfect and have their faults and limits. We should not always compare ourselves to others but believe in ourself going for what we believe we should and can do. We should set our mind to delivering on that, knowing that it is in our power. And if we need some help, we also should know there is always Some One high above Who is stronger and mightier than all beings, Who can help us.

The effort to realize this reality in our visitors life started well before the Dale Carnegie course. He was encouraged by it, and wants to continue on his path for long after. He writes

With work and personal issues clouding my mind, I did not get a chance to appreciate the course as much as I would have liked (I failed at being intentional there but we all have our down days). However, I hope that, in coming time, I can realize some benefits from the foundation that the course set for me. I also want to learn more about the man and the movement that grew into this program. {The Power in Me}

We would advise him to look beyond the doors of that institution and to get even more wisdom in the Book of books, trusting in the Most High Establisher Elohim, God His Power but also the power which can grow in himself, which is the power each of us at to be on the look-out for.

For now, he leaves his readers on Matters of Living with a good thought from Dale Carnegie, which we like to repeat here too:

Are you bored with life?
Then throw yourself into
some work you believe
in with all your heart,
live for it, die for it,
 and you will find
happiness that you
had thought could
never be yours.

How to Live Beyond the Ordinary

On her other blog, today’s guest-writer Nezel Yurong, an aspiring yogi and mother of two boys, wrote already in “Purposive Ninja Virtual Professional” about qualities we can acquire to make our life as enjoyable as possible.

We should know that our mindset is very important for the way how our life is going to develop. We should also know it is essential to have the right attitude to reach our goal in life. As such we should be very well aware that everything starts with a positive mindset.

She reminds her readers to

Believe that you can achieve the goals you set for yourself. Obstacles are inevitable. Whatever they may be, just have the faith and determination that you can overcome them. {Purposive Ninja Virtual Professional}

And repeats the same call we can not warn enough people to be persistent, continuing to try to get to their goal, never to give up.

Though we have to be careful Nezel warns

Do not push too hard on people or on yourself. You may make it slow according to your capacity; just keep moving forward. {Purposive Ninja Virtual Professional}

To do that we often need a lot of patience.

According to Beverly Sills, “there are no shortcuts to places worth going.” Get into the mindset that the wait will be worth it. Always take massive action. And remember that great things take time. {Purposive Ninja Virtual Professional}

Everybody shall encounter enough people who want to stop them dreaming, or even worse stop them reaching their goal. whatever the cause may be, a.o. jealousy, hear what they say and how they say it, but let it not drag you down. Look around in the world and find the interesting people who can inspire you or coach you and help you develop further in an ever changing world where you want to be receptive to and to be willing to make use of the new technologies.

 Adjust your sails to the different weathers of your journey. Keep on learning. And have an open mind to possibilities and opportunities. {Purposive Ninja Virtual Professional}

Our guest-writer recognises the good thing with life is that we are all born ordinary and we all can bring gifts to offer to the world from the day we were born. We may come into this world as a nobody and than have to work ourselves up onto that ladder so many expect so much.

When we grow up we may encounter experiences which might embarrass us much. ({Making Most of the Gap from a Nobody to Somebody}) On our way we can come to sit in an unproductive environment and seeking for something that gives more meaning and purpose to life. It’s possible we come to face weeks of soul searching, discovering we need to let go of some things before we can successfully embark on a new journey, which on many different occasions we shall confronted with.

Often a big problem people then face when they come on such ‘crossroad’ or ‘turning points’ is that they have difficulties with the confrontation and the changes they perhaps have to make.

They need to shake off the dust from their feet. No matter others might have been born with a silver spoon in their mouth, that does not make them extraordinary nor should let us feel sorry for ourselves.

We should remember

Being extraordinary is an inward thing. It is a journey. It is a choice.

Let us never forget our better self, believing in the self, getting to nurture the gifts which are given from birth.

As Richard Dawson said,

“Be nice to each other. You can make a whole day a different day for everybody.”

Nezel adds

If we want to be remembered or leave a lasting legacy, we have to muster all our strength to build up others.

We have to accept whatever the present puts in our table. The present is just the way it is. If there is something we don’t like in the present moment, we have to accept it, then tweak something that would promise us a favorable future.

Living beyond the ordinary

I read somewhere of someone asking how to make her life extraordinary. Is your life ordinary? Mine too. The good thing with life is we are all born ordinary. Yes, others may have been born with a silver spoon in their mouth, but that does not make them extraordinary. Outwardly, perhaps. They live in huge abode than anybody else, do not need to clean their toilet like anybody else, and even have bodyguards and assistants who are always attentive to their every need.

Still, those things do not make someone extraordinary. Being extraordinary is an inward thing. It is a journey. It is a choice. Media may have its definition about being extraordinary by the way some things or people present themselves. That is why many aspire to be great, famous and wealthy in order to become extraordinary. Worse, they do all means whether acceptable or not just to get…

In your own heart or outside of it

“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
Carl Gustav Jung

“We usually look outside of ourselves for heroes and teachers.
It has not occurred to most people that they may already be the role model they seek.
The wholeness they are looking for may be trapped within themselves by beliefs, attitudes, and self-doubt.
But our wholeness exists in us now.
Trapped though it may be, it can be called upon for guidance, direction, and most fundamentally, comfort. It can be remembered.
Eventually we may come to live by it.”
– Rachel Naomi Remen, Kitchen Table Wisdom 10th Anniversary

 

 

Dr Austin Ejaife, [an Olorogun, the ‘Ugo’ of Agbon Kingdom] asks where we look for answers, direction, and meaning in our lives.

These Dreams

These Dreams (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Who has not high aspirations becoming somebody very important or well known? When we grow up we are first of all confronted with the female so close to us, because we where inside her for nine months, that we have a special, sometimes very sacred relationship with her. Mostly all infants look up at their mother.

Next in line comes the father who often is pushed from his throne by the teacher. How many children do not go in dispute with their father, because the teacher told so and so? From toddler going into our teens we loose innocence and start comparing those adults more and more.

Looking at those grown ups we at first admire them a lot, for what they can and for what they say. They bring us to dream about who we ourselves could become, … like them …

Dr Austin Ejaife wonders

Do we look outside–dreaming with hopes and aspirations of things to come, things that may or may not someday be in the future? Or do we turn our gaze inward–towards our own heart–to find our true beauty and awaken our power, our potential, our true ability.

Though the world may turn around us in our eyes often we do not believe enough in ourselves. For us it does not seem to be possible that everything that could ever be possible… already lies inside of us. The writer of Finding Your Clarity Of Purpose may find that our true beauty, our power, our potential, our true ability, is patiently awaiting us to look there and discover it, to recognize it, and to use it, but for many people this shall stay a long undiscovered path.

Because many people not knowing that everything is in themselves, they miss out on a lot of things and are not able to find true fulfilment and happiness. We also should know and come to understand that real full happiness with no problems and sorrows at all, does not exist. There is no such thing as a world without sorrow. Like every rose has its thorns our life is full of  thorns but also hopefully full of flowers with nice smells. Problem with many people is that they are so much focussing on the dark side of their life that they do not see the sun-rays nor the vibrant colours.

Ejaife writes

Do not let your vision be clouded with dreams or ideas that some outside force can bring you fulfillment in life… it cannot and will not; only you have the ability to unlock your purpose and potential. Clarity of vision comes to us when we look within our hearts and see ourselves for who we are, who we have been, and who we can be, and then trust ourselves fully and completely.

Why are so many afraid of their inner “I“? why are so many afraid to become confronted with the “I am” they are?

We should be not afraid to grow up and to try to become ourself, daring to look into our own heart to find clarity of purpose and meaning.
