PUBLISHEDPRESS RELEASE TITLE
10/20/2018Daily Motivation - I accept myself wholly and completely
Accepting yourself wholly and completely entails valuing every part of yourself unconditionally. You have to be able to value both the good parts, and those parts that you think need to be strengthened. Unfortunately for many people, self-acceptance is a hard thing to do, especially when they look at the mistakes they make. But the good news is that self-acceptance is something that can be nurtured. It is a process that starts with acknowledging the judgments you usually make about yourself, and then being able to soften those judgments. We have to recognize that this process is a skill that you can practice, as opposed to being an inborn trait, that you either have or do not have.
10/19/2018Daily Motivation - Everything you can imagine is real
The power of imagination - The power to imagine is an inherent gift within every person. Each one of us can imagine. All great paintings, buildings, cars, songs, or movies begun with an image in somebody's mind. The ability to create something in our minds is one of the most powerful tools man has been given. Think about a world where there is no imagination! What a dull world that would be. People sometimes call dreams imaginations. And rightly so. Dream, imagine, the kind of life you want to live, and the world you want to belong to. Then make all your dreams come true.
10/18/2018Daily Motivation - Each and every day I feel fulfilled and joyful
How to Feel Fulfilled and Joyful Every Day - Feeling fulfilled and joyful each day is something that everyone throughout the world regardless of their background yearns to achieve. Call it bliss, joy, happiness, delight, ecstasy, elation, euphoria, the name does not matter, it is THE feeling we want to experience. In achieving the highest fulfillment, we first need to ask ourselves these questions: - What makes me joyful now? - How fulfilled am I on a daily basis? - What can I do to increase the feeling? - How do I react to negative happenings?
10/17/2018Daily Motivation - I check my pulse and if I can find it, I know I've got a chance
Finding Hope Even When The Odds Are Against Us - Sometimes in life we get knocked down by tragedies or adverse circumstances. The normal reaction for most people is usually to give up, viewing their setbacks as the final straw. Some people choose to focus on the bad things rather than finding hope in the unlikeliest of situations to overcome setbacks. Challenges will always be with us, because I doubt that there is anyone in the entire universe who has a perfect life. Even if we are rich in material wealth, there is always the possibility that we can still suffer physical and emotional pain, and in some cases money will not even be the solution to those challenges.
10/16/2018Daily Motivation - Each day I strive to learn something new
Life is constantly changing, and different aspects of our daily routine change with it. Things related to our professional lives and even our hobbies are affected by those changes. Unfortunately, we may not even be aware of the changes that are taking place. There is a thin line between success and failure and learning something new on a daily basis can essentially offer new possibilities through simply altering how we view things. It need not be anything overwhelming, but just a new bit of small, but interesting information that could change our life forever.
10/15/2018Daily Motivation - Empty pockets never held anyone back. Only empty heads & empty hearts can do that
Tips To Practice Positive Thinking - Early in life children have great aspirations. They want to emulate mom or dad, and become like them. Some want to be fire fighters, astronauts, or movie stars. Growing older, reality sets in. Or perhaps I should say conditioning sets in, from parents, schooling, church, and, not to forget, the media. They learn how to be victims of their circumstances. Little do they know that circumstances should never be a hindrance toward achieving our goals in life. Challenges are part of life. It is stuff that we can deal with as it comes up. It is no refection on who we are.
10/14/2018Daily Motivation - Happiness depends upon ourselves
Aristotle, the great thinker of the past, believed that the purpose of our being is to find happiness. He believed that the goal of life is to be happy, and this happiness depends entirely on the individual. It is never about what happens to us, or the events around us. We are responsible for our happiness. It is always a choice that we make. The challenges in our lives should never be a hindrance to our happiness. When we make the decision to be happy, the universe will conspire and help us to experience that joy. It should always be our goal in life to find the happiness within ourselves, and never in the events of our lives. We wish our lives away when we get involved in linking our happiness to different stages in our lives.
10/13/2018Daily Motivation - Being successful is my natural state
Does Success Come Naturally? - Ever taken the time thinking about how your subconscious mind manifests itself in your daily life? All goals you want to achieve, start as an idea. Having positive thoughts and visualization prepares your mind to turn the goals to a successful conclusion. Sometimes you may wonder why other people have success in life, while you fail in some of your undertakings. Does this mean that you are cursed? No one is cursed, unless you call "stinking thinking" a curse. I am talking about a negative mindset, because everything starts in your mind.
10/12/2018Daily Motivation - Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds
What is one of the most common themes in the lives of all of the great individuals in the human history? No matter when these extraordinary people lived, almost all of them had a hard time presenting their innovative ideas to the people around them. This includes artists, forward-thinking leaders, scientist and pretty well everyone else, who ever dreamt of a better world, and had the desire to make these dreams come true. Almost all of these people experienced resentment and rejections from many others who wanted to hold onto the status quo. This has been true since before the dawn of civilization, and it is still true today.
10/11/2018Daily Motivation - For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness
Tips On How To Manage Your Anger - There are many encounters in our daily lives. Some of them make us happy and others leave us with frustrations, or even outright anger. Living a life full of anger is a waste of our own time and energy, that would be better spent on something more productive. Prolonged anger can be very detrimental to our health. How can we avoid anger, or deal with it?. The following tips will help us tame our anger, so we remain happy most of the time.
10/10/2018Daily Motivation - Having Less Than I Need Drives Me To Work Harder
I consider myself lucky because I know the life I want to live, and the kind of life I want to wake up to on a daily basis. I look at different neighborhoods as a way of reminding myself what is possible if I work a little harder. I have a list of everything I want to achieve in life, and this has become my daily motivation. Every minute when I feel less motivated, all I need to do is look at that list, and visualize the fulfillment my dreams.
10/9/2018Daily Motivation - Everything is Possible - Think Possibilities
We are the sculptors of our destiny. We have the ability to drive our future into any direction we desire, but often we give up on our dreams for fear of failure, and fear of the unknown. But you can achieve anything you desire by having the right mindset and a strong will to pursue it. Some of the greatest individuals, past or present, neither had an exemplary childhood, nor did they attend the best colleges or universities in the world. They have one thing in common though, a commitment to their dreams.
10/8/2018Daily Motivation - Even If You Fall On Your Face, You're Still Moving Forward
One of the most common attributes that successful people share in common, is the virtue of perseverance. If you are going to look into the lives of high-achieving people, you will realize that they had to go through a lot of failures before they gained their current status. What does this teach us? Well, first of all, falling flat on your face doesn't mean it's the end of everything. The road towards success is filled with potholes and roadblocks. What you need to do is keep on moving forward, no matter what. Always keep in mind that if you fall, you can still get up and continue your journey.
10/7/2018Daily Motivation - Good things happen to me every day
In life, there are times when negativity seems to surround us, smothering our dreams and destroying our hope. But if we become more observant, we will see that the present moment is filled with a lot of beauty. We can either allow this negativity to saturate us, and hold us back, or we can let our positive attitude propel us forward. When we allow negativity to suffocate our dreams, we start to accept it as a way of life. It is very true that we cannot control what happens to us, but we certainly can control how you react to it.
10/6/2018Daily Motivation - He who has a why to live can bear almost any how
Tips On How To Find Your Life's Purpose - We face many challenges in our lives every day. Most of them are minor, but major challenges can make us feel like giving up. At a time like this, we are really tested, and can show what we are made of. People with a strong purpose in life have a much better chance to get through rough spots in their lives. When we have developed a purpose in our life, we are less likely to feel discouraged. We will remain optimistic, and stay focused on life. What is your purpose in life? If you are still working on finding your purpose, here are a few points that may help you...
10/5/2018Daily Motivation - Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need
Go out of your way give to those in need - The world we are living in today is full of self-centered people. Everything that people are doing is aimed at benefiting themselves alone. Sometimes it seems that we live in a dog-eat-dog world. Is this the way we were meant to live? The world can be a better place if we all became a little more generous. By going out of our way to help our friends or neighbors in whatever they need, we will do more for them than we can ever imagine. Good deeds never go unrewarded, whatever good we do to others, comes back to us tenfold or more.
10/4/2018Daily Motivation - Enthusiasm permeates whatever I do
To be enthusiastic means we are inspired by a cause, which could be our dreams, or our purpose in life. Enthusiasm is an intense enjoyment of what we do. When we have enthusiasm for our goals and dreams, we will do anything to make it happen. If we lack some skills that are required, we show a willingness to learn, and want to become the best at what we do. Work will not feel like work at all. It becomes a pleasure to pursue our objectives, because we love what we do. With enthusiasm we tackle every aspect of our endeavor, and we do it with excellence. Our enthusiasm will be visible to everybody around us. They will wonder what we are up to.
10/3/2018Daily Motivation - Common Sense Is not So Common
What is common sense? Somebody once told me that common sense is what the general population on this planet lacks. Food for thought! Talking about food. Would you blame obesity, which is rampant today, on the fast food industry? Or would the answer be that people should know that fatty foods make them fat? The essence of common sense is in those questions. The best definition I found was on Wikipedia, "Common sense is a basic ability to perceive, understand, and judge things, which is shared by ("common to") nearly all people and can reasonably be expected of nearly all people without any need for debate."
10/2/2018Daily Motivation - Remember fear doesn't exist anywhere except in the mind
7 Ways to Overcome Fear and Improve Your Life - When fear takes over our lives, it expresses in all kind of different forms, gloom, depression, despair, and discouragement, among others. Where do we find the fear? Fear is a mental habit, that only resides in our minds. It simply does not exist anywhere else. Fear enters our mind when we start having negative thoughts, and negative feelings. And these thoughts translate into negative expectations.
10/1/2018Daily Motivation - Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school
The Real Meaning of Education - Education is very important in our development as a person. But do all of us know what education really means? When we were kids, we probably heard countless warnings for us to study hard. But when parents are asked why education is important, most of them will say it is for us to be able to get a good job. But is the reason for us to get a good job the real purpose of education? Do we really go to school just to be able to survive?
9/30/2018Daily Motivation - Don't re-open old wounds in order to examine their origins. Leave them healed
Healing on physical terms refers to the body's recovery, whether towards regaining health or that of a wound. On the other hand, it can also refer to something more of a deep emotional wound, which almost everyone knows, that the pain due to an injury or cut is nothing compared this miserable feeling of an emotional wound! Despite this truth, why do people tend to hang on to the past, rummaging through bad experiences, and even attempt to re-open old wounds? What's past is past. It is gone. We cannot change it.
9/29/2018Daily Motivation - Every obnoxious act is a cry for help
Ever noticed how kids throw tantrums when things don't go their way? Did you know that adults behave the same way, except they use a different technique. If you live with an obnoxious person, you know what I am talking about? Or perhaps your boss exhibit obnoxious behavior occasionally? It can be a nasty affair, so I am suggesting to add a little humor to the situation. Of course, I do not mean that literally, but create a little humor in your mind to make it easier to deal with. Imagine the person with a silly cartoon face, or even in diapers. It might also help to dilute the nasty things that might be said. After all they are the ones with the problem, not you.
9/28/2018Daily Motivation - Demonstrating self reliance increases my confidence
Self-reliance and self-confidence are two words very closely related, whereby one can’t do without the other. In other words self-reliance and self-confidence are dependent qualities. Let's define each one: SELF-RELIANCE - Self-reliance means depending on our own inner strength, abilities, power and resources to overcome the daily challenges. SELF-CONFIDENCE - Self-confidence on the other hand is trusting in our own abilities and judgement. These two qualities are very important in our self-improvement.
9/26/2018Daily Motivation - Do what you want with what you have where you are
Work With What You Have To achieve Great Results - Many times people harbor dreams of success and a good life but never really take realistic steps towards achieving them. The main excuse is that they lack the resources, and are waiting for the right time to pursue their dreams. There is never a right time to chase your dreams, because time waits for no man. Many people around the world today have enormous wealth, and successful businesses, not because they inherited some big chunk of money, but because they had the drive to start with whatever little resources they had at the time.
9/25/2018Daily Motivation - Consistency The Key To Success
When a person lacks the natural talent or ability for something, the best way to attain success is through consistent effort and practice. A less gifted footballer, for instance, can do well on the field in a competitive match, even better than the more talented individuals, because of consistent practice. The same player will be selected again and again because of the consistent performances, while others may have one great game, but are relegated to the bench, because of inconsistent efforts, in-spite of their natural talent.
9/25/2018Daily Motivation - Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality
Learn about the true power of commitment - Do you know the real power of commitment? If there is no commitment, there are only hopes and promises, and we will not transform our hopes and promises into reality. When we are committed, our words not only become the driving force of your actions, but also create a high degree of personal discipline. The real power of commitment is huge. It focuses our mind on the one thing that becomes our purpose in life.
9/24/2018Daily Motivation - Close some doors. Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance. But simply because they no longer lead somewhere
Adopting to Change in Life - Life is like a moving wind, ever changing. The life we live today differs from the life we lived yesterday, and of that we will live tomorrow. But what happens when we keep looking back, and keep our eyes and minds on yesterday’s successes and failures? Most likely our tomorrows will lose some meaning, and the happiness we could enjoy today is diminished by looking back. Do yesterday’s worries and disappointments have any role to play today or in our tomorrow? Nothing more than a lesson learned.
9/23/2018Daily Motivation - By failing to prepare you are preparing to fail
The key to success is in planning - When we see successful people in life, either in terms of financial status or in a business career, we admire them for the success they have achieved. We envision of having the same type of success for ourselves, with a sense of fulfillment, and a life lived on purpose. Seeing the appearances of success, we must not forget that success does not come by chance. It is a deliberate, and well planned out journey with a desired end objective. By planning for success, we design a well defined path, complete with goals, toward our desired achievements.
9/22/2018Daily Motivation - By being yourself, you put something wonderful in the world that was not there before
Let us talk about one of the things that holds the key to transforming yourself and the world around you ... being yourself. Many people lack self-esteem, and as a result, they do not lead the satisfying lives that they really want. They also find it difficult to help or influence others. If that describes you, please listen closely. You are a unique, one of a kind human being. Your personality is unlike anybody else's, which makes you as important in this world as anyone else.
9/21/2018Daily Motivation - Build your own dreams or someone else will hire you to build theirs
Run After Your Dream! - Have you ever felt lost as if what you do is getting you nowhere? At some point in our lives, we all have felt as if we had no purpose or sense of direction. We end up simply living by the moment, relaxing, and procrastinating. We all want positive change in life, but without a goal and an ambition, we are stuck in the starting blocks.
9/20/2018Daily Motivation - Believe you can, and you are halfway there
Believing in ourselves is a major factor in our self-motivation. A self-motivated person has the confidence to step out of their comfort zone. The belief in our abilities gives us the faith to enter uncharted territories. Being our number one fan starts a fire deep inside of us that gives us the strength to withstand the toughest situations, and nothing can stop us, to forge ahead and follow our dream.
9/19/2018Daily Motivation - A child becomes an adult when he realizes that he has a right not only to be right but also wrong
As children, we often have a somewhat misleading view of the world. We naively see the adults we interact with, be they parents, teachers, and other grown ups, as perfect beings capable of doing no wrong. The way adults react to what we do makes us think that perfection is an attainable ideal, especially because they are our role models. At this point in our lives, we also lack the capacity to tell what is right or wrong, and this makes us blind to the mistakes adults make.
9/18/2018Daily Motivation - Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional
Tips To Overcome Challenges In Your Life - We can probably agree that even the most enthusiastic, energetic and optimistic people we know need some encouragement from time to time. Our lives are full of challenges. These challenges should not make us weaker or lose interest in life. But they should make us strong to face life head on. Most people find it difficult to accept and deal with these challenges. Running away from them is the worst thing we can do. Choose not to be defeated by following these tips.
9/17/2018Daily Motivation - Being ambitious makes my life better
Ambition is a strong desire to be successful, coupled with determination and hard work. It is the fuel that keeps us driving towards our destiny, making it essential in order to excel in everything that we do, culminating in a rewarding and happy life. Successful people are driven by a positive desire and an optimistic heart, that enhances their lives day after day.
9/16/2018Daily Motivation - A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty
In difficult situations, a pessimist sees only the obstacles to his or her goals. On the other hand, an optimist sees every barrier as a stepping stone, a lesson towards achieving his or her goals. As a matter of fact, optimistic attitudes is what determines the extent of our success, while pessimistic attitudes is what kills our dreams. There are benefits that come from being an optimist, but also from being a pessimist.
9/15/2018Daily Motivation - A good friend will always stabs you in the front
In a world where sincere friends are few and far between, it is always refreshing to come across an ally who doesn't hesitate to criticize and correct whenever we go astray. Thanks to our fast-paced and competitive lifestyle, where we are all striving to get ahead in life, drive better cars, live in bigger homes, or look more affluent than our colleagues, nowadays most of the people that we think of as our friends, would rather see us fail than point out our shortcoming to help us.
9/14/2018Daily Motivation - A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality
The world is a better place today because of the dreamers. Great men and women of the past who had a vision, who had a dream and collaborated with others who believed in their vision. They achieved momentous milestones in life, which changed people's lives around the world. No man is an island. This saying holds a lot of truth in it. You too can dream of big ideas and share it with other like minded people. The results may not only change others’ lives, but they also will reinforce your belief that nothing is impossible to achieve. If you can dream it, you can achieve almost any goal, with the help of a good team.
9/13/2018Daily Motivation - Being resourceful is important to me
Why We Must Be resourceful - What does it mean to be resourceful? What is the importance of it? Can we be resourceful without even knowing what the whole thing is all about? Resourcefulness is simply the ability to cope with unfavorable situations and make the best out of them. To some, this may sound rather oppressing. However, if we understand the importance of being resourceful, all our endeavors will turn into fun and success.
9/12/2018Daily Motivation - I am confident about what I have to offer the world
All The World's A Stage, And You Have An Important Part In It! - Have you ever wondered how famous personalities seem to radiate an aura of self-assuredness, speaking in an indirect language saying to us, "Look at me! I am important and I have something that society and the whole world needs!" Their secret? They have found the one thing that we have been looking for all our lives.
9/11/2018Daily Motivation - An abundant future awaits me
If you ever hope of living the life of your dreams, you have to create an abundant mindset. An abundant frame of mind is the difference between leading an ordinary life and an extraordinary one! You have to be absolutely sure that the future holds nothing but great things for you. Every cell in your body has to believe that you will have everything that you desire! If you ever encounter difficulties in achieving your goals, you should not let them faze you and weaken your faith.
9/10/2018Daily Motivation - A light heart lives long
How to be Light-hearted in a Challenging World - Someone with a light heart is always cheerful and carefree. We may yearn to be the same way, but sometimes it seems impossible. With the everyday challenges, which may include family, financial, or even dealing with illnesses, among other things. It is almost impossible to be always cheerful under these circumstances. Almost! But it is possible.
9/9/2018Daily Motivation - Don't worry about failures, worry about the chances you miss when you don't even try
Life is full of opportunities. We would be silly if we were to shy away from something, simply because we are afraid to fail. Trying different things in our life can not only be exciting, but necessary to gain experiences in various areas of life. Otherwise, we might end up being naive, dull and inexperienced.
9/8/2018Daily Motivation - I have the power to change myself
Becoming the best You, you can be - Whenever we are facing challenging times, the world seems like a lonely place, with little hope. Even at times like these, everything we need to make a change in our life is already at our fingertips. We are created in a way that all the resources that we need to make a positive change in our lives, are already with us, right now.
9/7/2018Daily Motivation - A man's character may be learned from the adjectives he habitually uses in conversation
If we want to live a happy, positive, and abundant life, one of the key factors is our mindset, and our attitude toward life. We want to guard our minds from negative influences. Here is a fun way to get to know our friends and acquaintances, and even family members, to see how supportive and helpful they would be in our effort to improve our lives. What kind of character do they have? Are they positive or negative?
9/6/2018Daily Motivation - My cherfulness is contagious
Deciding to be cheerful is simply amazing for our well-being. But what if I tell you that it is equally awesome for other people who are around us? Yes, that's right! Cheerfulness is like the sun, the one object that brightens up everything it touches. The sun energizes our bodies and makes us feel better. When the sun comes up after a rainy night, we wake up and smile, as if to say "ah, there is hope as long as the sun rises!"
9/5/2018Daily Motivation - Solitary trees, if they grow at all, grow strong
You’ve probably heard people talk of how the rich use other people to enrich themselves. This might be true in rare cases, but this is not really what happens. As a single entrepreneur, we can only do so much by ourselves. If we want to develop our ideas and bring them to market, we need the help of many people with various skills to make it happen. When we employ other people, there is no limit to what we can achieve. We can grow our business beyond borders, all we need to do is find the right people to work with us.
9/4/2018Daily Motivation - A human being is only interesting if he's in contact with himself
Daily interactions are part of our everyday life, ranging from just gesturing a slight nod to smiling at someone, communicating while maintaining professionalism, making new acquaintances, and developing deeper relationships. Of all the people we meet and friends we have, and those we've come to know better, whom are we likely to listen to? Is it best to go with the new trends, and typically think that the advice of others is more valuable? Who should we trust most? The best answer should really be no other than ourselves!
9/3/2018Daily Motivation - A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool
Let's accept the fact that each day we will make mistakes, and that making mistakes is more than okay. It is our nature as humans to err, and getting things wrong is part of the learning process. The most successful people in the world are regular and major risk takers. They are able to take these risks, because they accept the fact that they don't know everything, and that from time to time they are guaranteed to miss the mark.
9/2/2018Daily Motivation - How to be joyful in life
Every successful person had failures at some point in their life, and every happy person had sad moments in life at one point or another. What makes them different? They did not allow their negative experiences in life to change them, or their goals in life. We can all relate to them. We have challenges in life, some are minor, but others are more serious, and some of these events may rob us of our joy in life. They could even make us feel worthless, thus we are getting down on ourselves. But how can we wrestle with our challenges in a state of misery, and still be joyful, despite of what is happening?
9/1/2018Daily Motivation - Today is the first day of the rest of your life
Now is the best time to turn your attention to your future. Have you set your goals for your life, to achieve your dreams? Goals for the next year, next month, and next week? What strategies do you have laid out to accomplish those desires? Are your goals taking you closer to your dreams? - Today is the first day of the rest of your life!
8/31/2018Daily Motivation - Money Flows To Me
Imagine yourself as a magnet for cash, as a magnet for all the wealth the universe has to offer. This process will open your eyes to the vast range of opportunities that present themselves each and every day. Maintaining a positive mindset, especially when it comes to your financial well-being, is essential for seeing that the universe is both generous and on your side. This generosity leads you to create positive change, grow your wealth, and share your abundance.
8/29/2018Daily Motivation - I Follow Through With My Commitments
Keeping your word is one of the best things that you can do to build strong relationships and a reliable network. Surprisingly, it also intensifies the power of your words. When you say something and follow through, you will start seeing positive results in other areas of your life as well. Making promises to yourself, for instance, will have a higher meaning, as you are working towards improving your life.
8/29/2018Daily Motivation - And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years
Time spent on this earth is of no importance unless we are committed to making each and every day count. This can be as simple as having a positive impact on the lives of others, or it can be as complex as perfecting a talent through decades of persistent practice. Regardless of how long our life is going to be, we have to make an effort to do something that matters.
8/28/2018Daily Motivation - A spirit of positivity infuses my life
Capturing the essence of a positive mindset - The world is a strange place indeed. We spend so much time trying to achieve our goals and dreams, work relentlessly toward them, yet a single element of negativity is capable of sending us crashing to the ground, our dreams seemingly crushed and shattered. Negativity is a poison in our mind. Taking on a feeling that things will not work out, can render all our efforts futile, and we become despondent, as if someone just popped our balloon.
8/27/2018Daily Motivation - My kindness is a powerful weapon
Kindness - An Excellent Secret Weapon - A weapon is something that makes us feel powerful. It is usually thought of as a tool for aggression or violence.
