Motivation And Where To Find It

Here are two things that some people might mistake for the other; inspiration and motivation.
There is a distinction between them.  Inspiration is mostly found on the outside of self (books, movies, songs, pictures, places, people, etc…) while motivation is something that stems from inside of you. It’s important to know the distinction so that you could summon whichever one you need at the moment.
You may be a student struggling in school or you might be someone working to live the dream life you’ve always wanted. Whoever you are, whatever your battle may be, here are a few pieces of advice to help you stay motivated.
  • Slow down: Don’t stress about the things that aren’t really significant. Sometimes you just need to take a break from some things. Recharging is important. If taking a break means taking a week off to unplug or just taking a break from something else or whatever, then by all means, take the break. Afterward, you’ll be feeling much more inspired, energetic, and ready to tackle whatever.
  • Daily To-Do List: a list full of things you need to do and strongly desire to do.
    If you narrow it down to what you need to do and what you strongly desire to do, it’ll have you stay focused and not stressed over so many little things.

     

    What is a major difference between people who are successfully productive and ones who are not? The successful ones prioritize! Everyone has 24-hours, nobody is short-changed. So what makes us all different is how we use that time, and what we prioritize.

  • Motivation list: One of the ways I summon mine is by writing down a list of reasons why I want a particular outcome. I actually wrote a list of reasons why I want to become a published author. Some were things like making my parents proud and knowing their sacrifices mattered. Others were  how I didn’t want to let this life pass by without following my dream. This story was given to me for a reason and I owe it to my family, my Creator, and myself to make this happen. No talents nor gifts should ever be wasted. They were given to us to give to others and this is how we change the world.  I wrote a lot of reasons but I’ll just leave these ones here.

Keep this list! Maybe even carry it in your pocket or somewhere you could see it every day, especially when you need it.

I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything, but there is good reason for that! In my next post, I shall explain further.

Much Love & Light, As Always

Why You Should Believe In Your Dreams

Why should you believe in your dreams?

Because everything we have now was once a dream, a vision, something that came from the realm of possibility. Everything you see around you was once an idea, a product from somebody’s imagination. And through belief, and unwavering perseverance they brought it into this physical realm. Manifested it into their reality. 

This ability is inside of all of us. Most people don’t know that they truly have the power to change their own lives, to make their dreams a reality. And it’s all because they didn’t allow themselves to believe. Faith is not everything, but it’s hope that keeps us going and drives us on when the times get tough. Giving up is the quickest way to failure. There’s no other way around it. People who give up on their dreams, give away their chances of ever succeeding in making them a reality. Sometimes Failure comes first before Success shows up. That doesn’t mean you should throw in the towel at the first fail.

If you think about it, there are infinite universes with endless possibilities that can become different realities in parallel universes. I know that’s a mouthful, but it’s true. Scientists are discovering these other universes and dimensions (CERN). There are multi-universes and in these universes, whatever possibility that could happen has already happened or is happening. That possibility is true.  So imagine, you are already living this dream of yours in one of these universes. You have to be, because it’s possible, right? Perhaps that’s one of the reasons why you have this strong desire to make this dream a reality! Because an aspect of your consciousness is aware of that reality already existing, and your heart wishes to merge with this reality. Consciousness is not bound by time and space. Burt Goldman is the founder of Quantum Jumping, he has mastered the ability to jump into parallel universes and meet his alternate selves. He’s now a successful author, artist, musician, and photographer. And he’s only 89! He believed he could be anything he wanted, and when he saw himself living out one of his dreams, he knew it was possible for him too.

Somebody (a version of you) has to live out this possibility, right? If this dream is something you can’t imagine not doing or pursuing, if this is something you can’t imagine living life without or doing anything other than this, then it may be meant for this you to live out this dream.

This dream could be your soul’s calling. This version of you, right now, will live this life as *insert your name* only once. Sure, your soul never dies. Just like energy can never be destroyed or created, and we are made up of energy. But still, this current identity you have will only be once. The many versions of you throughout the universes will only be once. Out of all of you, don’t you want to be the one who lives their life full of meaning? That does what you once thought impossible? You can do it. The fact that you even have this vision of being *insert whatever* and not something else, means that you know deep down it’s possible. You are just afraid. It’s your Ego’s false sense of self that makes you think you can’t do something but the real you is Capable. 

In the next post, I will write about why Ego tries to get in the way of you and your dreams. 

Much Love & Light, As Always
