Don’t forget to set up your goals

Personal Development blog

Without setting up your goals, you are aimless. Do you really want to live your life like this? Don’t waste your energy on drifting without directions. Imagine you can do and be so much more then you are now. If you can imagine it, then you can do it. Henry Ford said once “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t—you’re right.“- so choose your attitude and thoughts right.

Use your unlimited potential!

Power of daily rituals. Why we need habits?

Personal Development blog

In this post I will focus on a power of daily habits, the rituals we all have. Some of them are good and they can help us to become big achievers, some are not and they can really slow down or even completely stop our chance of success. Habits can either benefit or hurt the goals a person sets for themselves.

What is habit?

Based on Wikipedia : “A habit (or wont) is a routine of behavior that is repeated regularly and tends to occur subconsciously. In the American Journal of Psychology (1903) it is defined in this way: “A habit, from the standpoint of psychology, is a more or less fixed way of thinking, willing, or feeling acquired through previous repetition of a mental experience. Habitual behavior often goes unnoticed in persons exhibiting it, because a person does not need to engage in self-analysis when undertaking routine tasks. Habits are sometimes compulsory. The process by which new behaviours become automatic is habit formation. Old habits are hard to break and new habits are hard to form because the behavioural patterns we repeat are imprinted in our neural pathways, but it is possible to form new habits through repetition.”

Personal Development blog

Did you know that today we celebrate second International Day of Yoga? On December 11 in 2014, the United Nations General Assembly declared June 21st as the International Day of Yoga. Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during his address to UN General Assembly on 27th September 2014 stated: “Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition . It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature. ”  June 21, which is the Summer Solstice, was specially chosen for the International Day of Yoga, because of it’s meaning. Mr. Narendra Modi had said that, “the date is the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and has special significance in many parts of the world. ”

Lets look at why is the Self Image that important.

Everything happens for a reason! Relax and learn your lesson!

Personal Development blog

images (3)Everything happens for a reason! I truly believe in this phrase. I know, I know…- some of you will say it is easier to say than to really believe and live by that, but I really do. Things happen in our lives; things that we not always agree with or don’t understand the true meaning at the time. It is hard to get our head around it, we search for “why” but sometimes one door needs to close so the other opens for us. I went through it few times… I know what I’m talking about. You feel like the world it ending and everything is against you, but in the reality you came to the end of the path and are at the crosswords where the new path starts. Sometimes we are too comfortable in the present situation, even when it is not ideal for us, and don’t want changes as they are disturbing our comfortable stagnation. How many times you complained about something but didn’t really do anything about it?!

Eventually all things fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moments, and know EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON.”
— Albert Schweitzer

Why not to live your dream life now? Make it your reality!

Personal Development blog

One of my favourite phrases and my life motto is Henry Thoreau’s   “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.” We much too often only dream instead of make our dreams our reality.

Is it a fear of failure? Laziness? Lack of trust in our abilities?

Why not to live your dream life now?

For sure it doesn’t just come to us or nobody serves it to us on a silver platter- it requires work, hard work and some sacrifices.

Happy Mother’s Day! Celebrate your mum!

Personal Development blog

From a mum to all the mums- Happy Mother’s day!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

But there’s a story behind everything. How a picture got on a wall. How a scar got on your face. Sometimes the stories are simple, and sometimes they are hard and heartbreaking. But behind all your stories is always your mother’s story, because hers is where yours begin.”
― Mitch Albom, For One More Day

I have a sister, so I know-that relationship, it’s all about fairness: you want your sibling to have exactly what you have-the same amount of toys, the same number of meatballs on your spaghetti, the same share of love. But being a mother is completely different. You want your child to have more than you ever did. You want to build a fire underneath her and watch her soar. It’s bigger than words.” ― Jodi Picoult, My Sister’s Keeper

Discipline vs motivation- what is more important for your success

Personal Development blog

I recently had a discussion with a friend about what is more important for a success: motivation or discipline. I was talking about the motivation as a driving force to go forward but he reckons that discipline would always beat motivation. Hmmm… My first response was “But don’t you need motivation to be disciplined?” It made me thinking… what is more important for your success… Are they really two very different things?

What is discipline? What is motivation?

Ok, let’s start from definitions first. I took these ones from Wikipedia.
