What’s Holding You Back From Doing What You Love?

Have you ever wanted to do something that you really loved, really wanted but you didn’t? What stopped you? Was it what people might say or think? Was it fear? Fear of failing or fear of actually succeeding? What was it?

We often find ourselves in a position where we really want to do something but… we don’t do it because of different reasons and then, we feel bad and we regret not doing it.

Are you standing in your own way?

Most of the time a change of mindset is all you need to let go of all those limiting beliefs and start doing what you love.

So here are some tips to help you finally let go of what’s holding you back and go after your dreams.

What Others Will Think Of You

So you’re afraid of what people might think or say…do you really think this is good? Why do you care so much?

Do you honestly think that all those people in the world who are doing what they love and are living their best life are spending their time worrying about what others think?

C’mon, be serious…they’re too busy living their best live and enjoying every moment.

People will always find something to disagree with what you’re doing.

Even if you do nothing they will still have something to say about it. So why worry?

You came into this world with a purpose. Maybe you’re very talented at singing or at dancing, painting maybe or you would love to be a teacher…whatever your skills are…use them!

If for example you want to follow a different career… let’s say you want to be a DJ. Do it! It’s your life not others. Do what you want, like, enjoy and think it’s good for you. Not what other people want you to do.

So You Failed! So What?

Fear of failing, of not being good enough holds so many people from succeeding and doing what they love.  So you failed. Try again!

Listen we all fail, it’s part of life. Some people fail big time and not just once! They fail but they don’t quit. See failure as improvement. That’s how you find out what works and what doesn’t.

Imagine yourself succeeding and focus on making progress.

And if you still don’t succeed try again. At least you’ll know you did what you could, you tried. Now if you want, you can focus on a different thing.

Get Out Of Being Stuck In The Past

In life you sometimes get to a point where you’re stuck, you’re stuck in moments from your past. Nothing is like it used to be.

Maybe you look back to a time when you were happy. You think life was easier, better and you keep on holding on to those moments, those feelings.

You can even feel them as alive as the first day! You look back because you never let them go.

Maybe everything happened so fast and all of a sudden that you just didn’t have enough time to adjust, to realize and get used to your new life.

Or it happened a long time ago but you can’t move on.

You keep on replaying them in your mind hoping that somehow you’ll get them back, those feelings, those people, that time, maybe a second chance… or maybe you just got lost in your past and the only thing you want back it’s the old YOU!

Somehow replaying endlessly brings you some sort of short happiness.

Or maybe you’re stuck on a bad situation constantly thinking about it and why it happened.

You keep replaying it in your mind trying to understand it. What went wrong, whose fault was it, how you could have done it better… you just can’t seem to get it out of your head.

You think about those moments because they made a difference in your life and somehow things were never the same again.

Live Life As You Like By Your Own Standards

How awesome does that sound? To be able to live life as you like by your own standards? You’d love that right? Go ahead take a few moments and just imagine how different your life would be.

Beautiful right? But…can you actually do it? Can you really live life the way you want to?

Isn’t it weird how everybody is trying so hard to please others? At work, home, friends?  You always put others first and forget about yourself.

You know time flies and nobody knows for how long we’re going to be here and still you’re spending all this precious time trying to fit somewhere you don’t belong! Trying to live a life you don’t like while dreaming of a life you would enjoy. Why?

Let me ask you something…where are you in all of this? When I say you I mean the REAL you!

This life is about you! It’s yours. Stop wasting time doing what others want and what they think it’s right for you.

Is this really what you want and what makes you happy?

Do you want to live life how others tell you to? Or do it your own way? It’s never too late and you’re never too young or too old to choose to become the person you really want to be.

You have the power to change your life. There are people living their best life out there and you can do it too.

Is it going to be easy? Probably not.

Starting the journey of self-improvement, finding yourself and making the necessary changes to live the life you really want, to follow your dreams and your soul requires a lot of courage. This is where most people get scared. They take the easy way out. It’s comfortable to them.

Isn’t is crazy how doing the RIGHT thing it’s always hard? But, what if it’s not?

How To Be So Productive That You’ll Have Time To Enjoy Life

We all want to be as productive as possible and in the same time enjoy life right? What’s all that work good for if we don’t find time to actually live?

But somehow our productivity is not as good as we want it to be. If often you find yourself with a bunch of unfinished stuff, procrastinating, deadlines knocking at your door, unfinished projects, drained, sick and tired and overwhelmed and no free time…these tips are for you!

Get more productive, finish your work and have more free time to enjoy life!

Do What Works For You!

One of the reasons people fail at being productive is because they follow so many advices and tips that do not work for them. They read, they listen, they try but it doesn’t work for them like it does for others!

We’re all different and what works for one might not work for the other.

For example some people like to wake up very early in the morning at 4:00 or 5 to get some things done before going to work or whatever they have to do.

You trying to do the same and wake up at the same time might not be such a good idea if you’re not a morning person, if you can’t go to bed early or if you’re more productive during evenings!

There are so many ways, tips and strategies to become more productive but you have to understand that not all will work for you.

Each person has its own way of doing things! So take some time to find out what works for you!

Simple Steps To Bring More Happiness Into Your Life

Can you bring happiness into your life?

Happiness is a choice and it comes from inside. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t find happiness outside of you. You can be as happy as you can by yourself but when something good happens to you it brings you even more happiness right?

We all end up from time to time forgetting who we truly are and letting everyday worries shadow our joy. We get sidetracked. But happiness is there!

See it like a dormant thing that wakes up at different stimuli! Happiness is always inside and available to you. But, if we fill our days with stressful situations and craziness of everyday life, work, deadlines crazy boss, difficult situations… you forget how to actually live. Soon you’ll start to feel lost and unhappy!

So how do you bring happiness back? If it’s right there inside you…how can you access it?

Surrounded By Happy People…Does It Work?

It’s like when you’re wearing a nice, beautiful dress and you know it’s beautiful but when you hear people telling you how great it looks on you, you feel even better. And how wonderful is it when we have someone to remind us how great we are and lift us up when we fall.

Also, having around us people with the same mission helps us stay on the right track.

True, some people are very lucky to have strong and successful people around them from the beginning while others are all alone fighting depression, loneliness, without anyone to talk to.

But we all have the power to choose how we want to live our life.

There are people who had everything they ever wanted but they are unhappy. And people who had nothing and managed to build the happy life they wanted. They somehow found the strength within themselves to move forward.

Yes! Bad things happen, we live in a crazy world. But that doesn’t mean that good things don’t happen or that there’s no hope. Or it’s pointless. It’s not easy to deal with life challenges but that doesn’t mean you should let them ruin your life and happiness.

We can’t always control everything that life throws at us but, we can choose how we’re going to let life challenges or circumstances affect us and for how long!

Take Responsibility For Your Life

It’s always easy to blame someone else than to actually look at you and admit that maybe you’re the one who’s making a mistake. It’s always someone else’s fault. Someone told me recently that he feels better to blame others cause it’s easier. But is it fair?

Is it the right thing to do and most important…how does that help you? It might be easier but it won’t make your life better or solve your problems.

Start taking responsibility for your life and your own actions. While we live in a world that whenever something happens it has an impact on everyone’s life that doesn’t mean you should go and blame everyone and everything for what happens in your life.

Yes, some have it easier than others. True you might have to work harder but in the end it’s your choice. You decide if you want to spend time blaming others, constantly complaining, wanting, dreaming and hoping or you start doing something about it. Read more

Real Tips For Setting Goals In Life

Who doesn’t want to set goals and really achieve them? We all do right? Have you ever noticed how much time you’re wasting planning in vain?

You make plans after plans, set goals after goals, bigger to do lists, smaller to do lists, writing lots of goals setting worksheets and strategies only to end up in the trash, same with your bucket list.

You even break your goals into smaller ones thinking it will be easier to achieve them, you tell yourself that tomorrow it’s going to be different but it’s just the same and after all the trying and struggling somehow… you end up in the same place or even worse.

You just can’t get things done! No time, no motivation no achieved goals no….nothing but stress and disappointment.

Listen, one thing I learned about goals is that when it comes to achieving them there’s no one size fits all and no just one right way to do things. That’s why sometimes, when you’re trying to do what others do you don’t always succeed!

Some people don’t know how to set goals. Some achieve them all the time while others are too afraid to go after them and some don’t have goals in life.

When it comes to reaching goals some people don’t like to waste time while others love to postpone and procrastinate all the time.

We’re the same but also different, we have different ways of doing things. What motivates one person means nothing to the other.

What works for one might not work for the other. There are so many people who succeed with their goals and each has a different way of reaching those goals. The one that works best for them. So what’s the secret?

Even if there’s more than just one way to achieve a goal, all those people who succeed in achieving their goals have ONE thing in common… they WORK for it! They take steps every day to make it happen. If you want to achieve something you have to take some action.

Now, if you’re serious about succeeding with your goals…I do have some easy tips for you to follow when setting goals and help you get things done. You ready? Here we go:

Set Big Goals But Keep It REAL!

Dream as big as you want and set as many goals as you like but keep it real when it comes to achieving them.

Don’t make the mistake of setting a deadline too soon. What are the steps you need to take to achieve your goals? Some reach their goals faster while others need more time. Don’t push it thinking you’ll get there faster. You’ll end up really disappointed.

It’s like running. Let’s say your goal is to run a marathon so you need to prepare. You don’t go running like crazy for 1 hour if you never ran before. You start slow! Then you increase the time while you’re getting stronger and you’re making progress.

You start with 10 minutes of running, then 20, half an hour….and so on till you reach your goal. And this may take weeks even months until you succeed. Same goes with everything else. Set the right time frame that will help you achieve your goals. Read more
