An Introduction to Self-Discovery

Do you know that self-discovery is greatly dependent on whether you love yourself?

The term “Self-discovery” means identifying your nature and your needs to understand your dreams, fears, insights and true identity. Even though the word self-discovery may sound trivial, it is a significant process in learning of knowing one’s self.

Do you ever remember about a time when you dreamt about having a certain kind of life that after you finally achieve your desire, you still seemed to feel unhappy? Why do you think that is happening?

Let us discuss it now.

10 Steps to Attract the Life You Want

10 Steps to Attract the Life You Want

“What you seek is seeking you.”

Rumi

If I told you that you could create the exact type of life circumstances you want, would you call me crazy?

What if your very thoughts could create ripples of change that not only impact your life…

…but those around you as well?

Philip, a call center worker from the Philippines certainly didn’t think so. He dreamed of moving overseas so he could secure a better life and provide for his family. 

But at every turn, his own mind shut down every opportunity he thought of. 

For instance, Philip considered seeing an immigration consultant, but he either “didn’t have the time” or “couldn’t afford it”.

So, he resented his situation and cursed himself (and the world) for his “bad luck”. 

He didn’t realize that the real culprit was his mindset – not his circumstances. 

And it seemed like the more he ruminated, the more bad things happened. 

Thus, he kept feeding the cycle of being stuck in a rut and feeling bad, trapping him even more.

That was, until his aunt Sara introduced him to the Law of Attraction.

Part 4: Inner Critic’s Role in Building Self-Confidence

Do you notice and listen to that tiny voice inside ourselves? Strange but it is true that you may succumb to a somber and mediocre way of life depending on how you respond to those promptings. There is no biological or scientific explanation to this voice, but we all hear them.

Do you know what your inner critic is telling you now?  Do you believe its validity?

In the last blog post, we talked about increasing your self-confidence. Today, we are going to deal on how your inner critic affects your self-confidence.

Do you notice and listen to that tiny voice inside ourselves?  Strange but it is true that you may succumb to a somber and mediocre way of life depending on how you respond to those promptings.  There is no biological or scientific explanation to this voice, but we all hear them.

Although there are two types of voices – one in a form of good motivation and the other stemming from fear.  The latter being an innate automatic response to protect us from hurt.  But ironically this inborn whispering voice would tell us that we are not good enough, we are worthless, or we cannot do anything right.  Sounds familiar?

Part 2: Building Self-Confidence

In the previous post, we talked about the signs of low self-confidence.  Today, we are going to go over several different ways that you can increase your self-confidence.

Even though we dream of being perfect and we see other people who appear self-confident and flawless, we must realize that no one can be perfect. We are all human and we all make mistakes all the time.  And I have to say, that is okay.  That is part of human nature.  We are here to experience life.

Do not be fooled!  Even the most confident people have their insecurities and the people who appear extremely self-confident are not perfect. Because no one is!

With age comes maturity and maturity comes from the experiences we go through.  Experience is one of the greatest teachers we have. And when we fail to learn from the experiences we encounter, that only keeps us reliving the same type of conditions over and over again.  Until we are ready to accept our current conditions and resolve to move past the disappointment, we would not be able tostop the cycle of self-defeat.

Happiness: The Making of a Wonderful World

Do you know that Happiness is an obligation?

The great book, the Bible, stated a commandment, “You shall rejoice with all the good that the Almighty has given you.” (Deut 16-11).

This post is not about geographic destination travel per se, as most readers would probably expect, but relates on the lighter side of sojourn and journey in this time and place.

Not one of us can always stay happy all the time even when we get to travel around the world, have the most beautiful mansion or the coolest car in the entire planet. It requires a 180-degree turn in the way we look at things.  We can drive to the next country in our bucket list or just walk to the nearby town and feel fulfillment simply by beginning to change our mindset.
