What if…you had a power…

Personal Development blog

Have you ever wondered if you can do more than you do now, can achieve more in life and feel more fulfilled? What if you had a power…

Sit down, calm you thought and ask yourself few questions. Don’t think too long, don’t try to impress anybody with the answers, be very honest with yourself.

What is your purpose in life? What is your dream? Do you do something to get what you really want? Are you happy? Are you a master of your life or the life happens to you?

Only small percentage of people are happy with what they have. Most of us live the life unaware of their potential. We can do so much more… but… there are thousands and thousands of excuses we use not to do it. I’m guilty of it too. You too?

How many times I skipped my yoga class … because I was too tired… it was raining… I had something else to do… blah blah blah… If only we really wanted… we could do so much more…

Decisions, decisions….

It is all about decisions.

I made my choice now. My New year resolution is my personal development. choice-abstract-4-1237643-640x480I’m going to make this year MY year! I will work to improve myself, learn more about the person I am and empower myself!!! My plan is to learn from people who are the best in it. It is going to be a year of new Elektra discovery! So next year I will reach 40, this magical age when some people have middle age crisis 🙂 I choose better! I already see myself as more aware and open person who slowly discovers what she wants in life. And I choose to go this path!!! My ultimate goal is to understand myself, choose my best path in life and not to let the life just happen to me. Living consciously at full potential, making the best decisions for myself and reaching real happiness in life! I know that by changing it now it will change many things for better, including my finances and relationship with my husband, kids and my friends.

I get it. We all work hard, are tired, some of us have kids, lots of duties but… when do we really spend time with ourselves, have a reflection moment, learn new things. images (7)How much time after work do we spend glued to TV screen just to realize that it’s bed time and all this time we just had we wasted. Next day the same story and it is like that almost every day.

Don’t make this happen to you!

Choose wisely!

Choose to change your story!

Do it today!!!!!!!!!!

  1. I appreciate your post. The best thing everybody shoud do is taking a moment do think about all those questions and write it down. I did this a few years ago and this really changed my life.

    I knew what I wanted to do and be in life. But alas I was following the grind of society. Until the day I sat down and took the time to write it all down on paper. Then I took the decision that things would change from that specific day.

    My life began to change from that point It’s worth taking a few minutes to do it! (This reminds me “The Secret” and the Law of Attraction 🙂

    1. Thanks David for your comment and sharing your experience! It is a powerful exercise to write down your goals. It actually makes you more aware of what you want and what can you do to get there. Getting an idea where we are at this moment, what could be the plan of action and what is our aim- is the way to go. As Earl Nightingale said “Think of a ship leaving harbor. Think of it with the complete voyage mapped out and planned. The captain and crew know exactly where the ship is going and how long it will take,it has a definite goal. And 9,999 times out of 10,000 it will get to where it started out to get. Now let’s take another ship, just like the first, only let’s not put a crew on it, or a captain at the helm. Let’s give it no aiming point, no goal, and no destination. We just start the engines and let it go. I think you’ll all agree with me that if it gets out of the harbor at all, it will either sink or wind up on some deserted beach, a derelict. It can’t go any place because it has no destination and no guidance. It’s the same with a human being.”

  2. If I had a secret power it would be energy, I always fell like the walking dead, find it hard to get up each day and before I know it the day is gone and I have nothing to show for it.

    You’re right I need to buckle down, find out what I want and use my power to get there. Just because I’m 50+ doesn’t mean I have to give up on the good things.

    Thanks for the motivation.

    1. Thanks for you comment Debra! I’m glad you liked my post. It is never too late to realize what you want in life and do it!!! Do it today! Unleash your secret powers 🙂

  3. Very genuine article. I thought you are speaking with your heart, so I felt it. We are very complicated creatures, and it’s quite difficult to understand what we want, and it’s way harder to understand why we want it. Psychotherapy is one way; I say painful way but true way to understand what you are and why and what you need.
    So I would say I need a superpower to know myself.
    Cheers

    1. Appreciate your comment! Yes, I agree we are complicated creatures. But we also have lots of powers which we don’t realize we have unless we unleashed them. And to do it we need to be able to slow down, have a moment of reflection/meditation and listen to our true self. By asking lots of questions and attempting to answer them genuinely we giving ourselves better chance to understand and know ourselves better.

  4. A very motivating content,a challenge i wish almost everyone faces before its too late in life.Is there a way to introduce your questions to young children, there should be questions like these asked in schools. i can think of two people i know personally wilt great talent and are not aware of it. good choice of subject and interesting presentation. Are there any stories to add?

    1. Thanks for your comment! I think it is a great suggestion to introduce these kind of questions to young children, I hope it could be part of their curriculum at school. I have 2 kids and I try to introduce this type of thinking in their life.

  5. Hi Elektra,

    Thanks for sharing. As I read it I could feel the energy and the desire to motivate. Questions are so important because they focus our attention. I have also been in the personal development field for many years and I can really say it changed my life too and the journey still continues. I agree it is so important to understand our real needs and wishes.

    Wishing you all the best!

    1. Thanks Roux! Yes, my journey still continuous too 🙂 I learnt a lot, found and followed my passion and I want to live it! I started my life coaching course and would love to motivate people to aim higher and achieve their awesome goals!

  6. I think it is so important to find happiness within and to do that we have to become more aware. We have to realize that what we have is what we need and work towards living consciously. Your article is full of truth and insight. We really should do the best we can in living to our greatest potential and your article points those reading in the right direction.

  7. Very nice post!!! And congratulations on your decision and good luck on your journey. There are many facets to look at but the most important one is to just be yourself!!

  8. This is a wonderful, and may I say well written, reminder of the values of life! Its funny, it can take a near death experience to help you realize how important it is to take control, and that’s what happened to me. Now in the space of a year, I have dramatically improved my well-being, skills I wanted to acquire and the ability to say no to things I didn’t want quite yet.
    I think it is important to stop and think about what you want in life and start working towards achieving it. Like, I used to dream about being fluent in dutch all my life, I never did anything about it though, this year I have put in a lot of work and am now able to speak a little with my Dad! It is amazing what you can do if you set your mind to it!

    1. Congratulation Emma on taking control over your life and achieving amazing goals!!! That’s awesome! Life gives us some clues, small pushes but sometimes it takes a dramatic event to stop us in what we do automatically and look back in our choices. Thanks for your comment and good luck with your new journey!!!
