Enthusiasm & Joy!!!

28 Aug

stacked-gold-bars

Hello all.
Many people try to overcomplicated things. I believe that at the core of everything you take on, if there isn’t enough enthusiasm or joy, the chances of you going in the wrong direction is very high. Now a lot of people do things because they feel the “have to.” I don’t believe you “have to” do anything. You were put here to express enthusiasm and joy in all that you do, and allowing others to be blessed by this. It always goes back to your personal belief systems. Something is only as important to you because you believe it to be.

“Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.”
-Tony Robbins


HOW DO YOU KEEP YOUR ENTHUSIASM & JOY ON A REGULAR BASIS?

Now a lot of people ask me, but how do you keep your enthusiasm and joy when everything around me isn’t working? I say, your view on life is all based on your own perspective. Yes, maybe things didn’t go your way when you wanted it to, but how you deal with it or how you resolve it is always and will always be your choice. Does it get difficult sometimes? Yes. It does get difficult to realize that you are fully responsible for the way you react towards challenges that come your way. But does this make you a stronger and better person? Yes. I believe it does. When you begin to realize that all the reactions that you have deep within you are just your own feelings towards a certain outcome, than you really get an honest look at who you are. If you are willing to change this, remember that it is just a matter of internally changing the way you look at your situation.


ENTHUSIASM & JOY IS A CONSCIOUS DECISION INDIVIDUALS MAKE FOR THEMSELVES

The people living with a sense of enthusiasm and joy everyday I believe make this consious decision for themselves. It really is a choice of the individual to live in this manner. Just as it is a choice for an individual to live in sorrow, or fear. Is it easier to live in sorrow and fear in this society? Yes. It is easier because it seems like the more comfortable choice. It takes a lot more out of a person to bring enthusiasm and joy to the table, especially in these current times we live in. I believe everyone has this ability to shift their focus on what they truly want to bring about in their lives. So although living a life filled with enthusiasm and joy may sound very appealing to many people, the reality is that if you really wanted to be at this level, you would have to make the conscious choice to do so. It all begins with your choice.

“Joy comes from using your potential.”
-Will Schultz


BEGIN NOW!

If you want to start living with enthusiasm and joy and have all these positive experiences come your way, you certainly can! It’s all a choice. Nobody can take this away from you. You were given this power, all you really need to do is start utilizing this power on a daily basis. Seek out things that empower you, and make you feel good! As you seek out these things, begin to focus on the joy it brings you and stay on that course.

“Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

How the Current Economy Presents Tremendous Opportunity for You: The Spiritual Revolution

24 Jun

“The spiritual journey is individual, highly personal. It can’t be organized or regulated. It isn’t true that everyone should follow one path. Listen to your own truth.”
– Ram Dass

Hello all.
We are in the midst of a great collapse of the U.S economy. This is an exciting time to be living. The reason it is exciting, because if you see the opportunities that are present during these current times, and seize them you will be a very accomplished individual 5 years from now.

The opportunities that are presented are becoming more visible to those that are living consciously. Those that are seeing what is missing in the world today will reap great rewards in the future. The amazing thing about this all is that we are headed towards the very basics again.
The idea of unity, peace, and compassion for ourselves and others is making a major comeback. What I see that is happening now, is that old systems are failing. The old ideas of corporate ladder climbing is crumbling. The government is starting to
fail because the original intent came from a dark place. This may have been through greed, pride, and other selfish motives. The industrial age thinking is starting to really collapse because a new era is emerging. This goes beyond the Information age era. What we are entering as collective human beings is a spiritual revolution.

The Spiritual Revolution

The spritual revolution is being felt by many people that are tuned into their intuition. You can see it in the eyes of children, they know what is happening, but most don’t have the ability to communicate it effectively.
The tables are turning, those that live consciously and work from their soul will be the new leaders of this nation. Those fixated on their ego desires will slowly diminish.

The current economy will allow you to really take a look inside yourself and see what the world is in need of. The answers are going to be felt and inspire you to move in the right direction. The tremendous opportunities are already here, you just need to be open to them and accept the changing world that you are currently in.

These are the times to follow your heart, and watch in amazement at how this simple habitual act will take you to places beyond your wildest dreams. The current economy presents tremendous opportunity for you because the spiritual revolution is here.

Slumber not in the tents of your fathers! The world is advancing. Advance with it!
-Mazzini

Where Amazing Really Happens

Hello all.
Amazing really happens wherever you are at. You don’t really need to search outside of yourself to find amazing. Amazing is in everything you do and the value you provide for many people. Amazing happens as soon as you get up in the morning ready to create and provide value to people that are eagerly waiting to hear from you.

“Where Amazing Happens”
-National Basketball Association Playoffs Slogan

You may have those times in life where things aren’t moving along and you feel stuck, these are times when you are not recognizing the amazing inside of you. The moment you begin to recognize the amazing in you, acknowledge it and continue forward on your life’s mission. Although I can’t tell you exactly what your life’s mission is, I know that this amazing quality that is inside of you is what will push you forward to be, do, and have what you want in life.

Begin now to develop a service oriented approach to life, focus on providing positive value to others in whatever way you can. We live in a society that believes in high achievement and success. Generally speaking, this society conditions people to find amazing outside of themselves. However, I believe that in order to reach what I call Beyond Success, you must find the amazing inside of you first. When you are highly creative, and moving along at your pace and making moves in this world, you are acknowledging the Amazing in your spirit, and sharing it with others.

Amazing really happens with you.

Put Your Creativity Into Action

Hello all.
Putting your creative work out is always a challenge. Especially when you are just starting out. A lot of the pressure comes from not knowing what the audience will think. This leads to a fear of criticism.
Have you ever tried something that you thought was really creative and people laughed and looked down on you for doing it? Or maybe you just had what you believed to be a truly creative idea and ambitious goal and people said “how can you do that?” or “You can’t do that!”
While constructive criticism is essential to any worthwhile success, when you let what people say negatively effect your action towards your goal, it can turn into a problem.

“In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.”
-Tony Robbins

I use my personal blogs as an example a lot. I started out these blogs with no real concrete direction in mind. I just started out as a hobby, something to “kill time.” really knew was that I was going to use my personal life experiences as I was building my business and share ideas that have worked for me along the way. The first six months I received consistent 0 views on my blog. So I mean 17,000+ views later I think that’s not so bad.

“Do It Now Method”
The point here is this. If you have something creative to share, use the method that I use.
The method is called the “Do It Now” Method.
I say to myself, “Do it Now” every time I have a creative idea, and I write it down on a notebook, so I won’t forget it. Or I immediately start working on it at that moment.

This gets my creative juices moving into action immediately, so that there is not enough time to second guess my idea. You can use this method whenever you have a creative idea, and witness the great results of this simple yet highly effective method. I believe that we limit our creativity when we over think what we should do. Those hunches, or intuitive ideas that come to each one of us comes for a reason, and it is up to you to either hold on to it or share it with others.

If you begin using the “Do it Now Method” you will begin to see that great results take place, because you are putting immediate action on your hunches. It is also important to remember it’s perfectly fine if what you decide to work on doesn’t come out like you expected the first time. This takes practice, the more you develop this method the better the results over time.
The critics will be out there both positive and negative, but continue to create and deliver anyway.
Put your creativity into action.

Looking At Life Like It’s One Big Classroom

Hello all.
Life is one big classroom, filled with many lessons. When you look at life like a classroom, events and things that come along will make more sense to you. For example when something upsets you during the day, you can take it as a learning lesson. When you start looking at life like you are supposed to learn lessons, life actually becomes more exciting. The reason it becomes more exciting, is because you look at things with a healthy curiosity. Those that are curious, usually seek answers to questions they were never aware of. Those that are rigid with one way of doing things, never allow the curiosity to come out of them and don’t learn much.

“Live as if your were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

-Ghandi

The great thing that I’ve personally taken on was to be enthusiastic about learning new things. The more enthusiastic I got by wanting to learn, the more exciting life became. The world is changing fast, the more enthusiastic you and I get about learning new things, allows us to experience life like it was one big classroom, filled with exciting lessons. Some lessons are harder to learn than others, but just the fact that you acknowledge the fact that you are learning, gives you the opportunity to live a more beyond successful life.

Many people that are stuck and confused in life, are generally people that say they know it all. There is no way to know it all, if we knew it all we wouldn’t be here (earth). If life is one big classroom, it would be a good idea to be enthusiastic about each new learning experience.
Everyday presents new lessons, just the idea of that excites me.

How To Win In Life: 3 Steps

18 Mar

Hello all.
This is post is about How to win at life-Baker Style.

Step 1
First, you need to decide on what you want to be in life. Many people focus on what they want to have and what they want to do. But this is not how you win in life. You need to focus on your inner self. You would first need to know what you would like to be. What kind of story do you want to leave behind? What kind of value, or service did you want to offer? Being has everything to do with what you offer to others, because in essence we are all connected. Thus, what I give to another I am really giving to myself. What we send out we get back.

Step2
When you know what you want to be. Then you have to take the small action steps in the present moment to be the person you want. This does not mean changing drastically overnight. This is a process, a step by step day to day internal searching for yourself. Spend time alone and listen to the silence, it will speak to you. You will feel it is right, instead of thinking it is right. Continue on your path of least resistance, and take on action steps that bring you the most joy in life.

Step3
When you take small action steps that you really enjoy, you will begin to see enthusiasm around you. Remember that the enthusiasm around you is what you created. You create the life you desire, with every thought in action. When you are immersed in your being the doing will take care of the rest. Trust that the joy alone in being you is the act in of itself, to lead you to be a winner in life. Whatever brings you joy, you will find that your true self becomes evident, and when you operate from this level, you are winning in life.

“Win as if you were used to it, lose as if you enjoyed it for a change.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
