What’s your personal philosophy?

What is your philosophy?

Though it may not be pinned to your office wall, our life experience carves out a set of standards or values that over time we choose to live by.

I like to call it a “personal philosophy” –  kind of like a subconscious set of rules that you use to guide your behaviour, decisions and direction in life.

A personal philosophy can serve you positively or negatively…

Just think of a smoker who lives by the philosophy of, ‘I may as well do it coz I only live once!‘ as compared with someone who is shooting for their dreams with the same philosophy.

But here’s the good news.

These negative patterns can also be disrupted – particularly when the reasons a strong enough – and you can definitely create a personal philosophy that empowers you to grow.

Think for a moment about the personal values you place on things like…

  • Time – Are you always early or late?
  • Money – Do you hold on to it tight or allow it to flow?
  • Work – Do you do it to earn a living or to be of service to the world?
  • Health – Do you believe in balance, a strict diet or do you just eat whatever satisfies you?
  • Lifestyle – Are you designing the life you want or is the government in control?
  • Relationships – Do you have them to ‘get’ something or to ‘give’ something ?

Creating a personal philosophy that truly resonates with you can take minutes or it can take months, but either way, it’s well worth making a start.

It’s an exercise that will reveal the inbuilt patterns and beliefs in your life that aren’t serving you well that it’s time to ‘shake up’ in order to create positive change.

The Power of Decisions

The Power of Decisions

Our decisions in life shape our destiny.

When you stop and ponder it, you’ll probably notice that at different junctures in your life, you’ve made decisions that have taken you on a journey that ultimately impacts the quality of life you experience today.

You may have decided to choose a certain career, start a business, form a relationship with a particular person, pay attention to (or neglect) your health, accept a diagnosis from your Doctor, or attend a personal development course.

All of these little decisions have set you on a certain path.

And whether you’ve made poor decisions in the past or you’ve been the victim of circumstance, at some level, we all get to decide the meaning we place around those things – so that they either give us the strength to move forward or we allow them to compound our pain.

What really is courage?

What is courage?

What really is courage?

The most common definition is, ‘Strength in the face of pain, grief or loss‘.  Or, ‘The ability to do something, even though you might be fearful‘.

We all experience moments in life that require us to call on these versions of courage.

But when it comes to your personal growth – elevating your health, relationships, career, business or finances – courage can manifest itself differently. It’s kind of like a self-imposed form of obstacle that requires us to look within ourselves to find the inner strength to move forward.

In this context, one of my favourite definitions of courage is this:

Courage is vulnerability masked“.

Are Your Beliefs Limiting Your Health?

What are your limiting beliefs about health?

In every aspect of our life, our inbuilt belief systems are like a rudder that guides us to carry out certain daily behaviours.

Take the current state of your health as an example…

If you’re at your ideal weight, vibrant, pain-free and not reliant on medications, chances are you’re doing things consistently that are generating that result.

But if your health is not up to scratch, it’s time to ask yourself if you’ve fallen ‘victim’ to any of these limiting beliefs over time:

How Do You Start Each Day?

How do you start each day?

What do you do when you wake up each day?

Do you hit your alarm clock snooze button, before eventually crawling out of bed to dive under the shower, get dressed and rush out the door?

Or do you spring to your feet, throw on your activewear and get moving whilst half the world is still asleep?

How you start each morning sets the tone for your day.  And what you do consistently every morning, ultimately sets the tone for your life! (more…)
