How To Use Challenges As Our Best Friends

Don’t be afraid of challenges, let them take you somewhere new, relax and be awesome.
– Sara Maya Smith

Our thoughts shape our actions, and our actions shape our destiny. Negative thinking affects our reality, our life, and our level of success, limiting our potential.

When we are afraid of something, the first things we impulsively tell ourselves is “I can’t deal with that,” “Maybe I’m not ready to deal with it,” “I think I’m not good enough to face this.”  And what happens? Well, it’s pretty simple: it happens that we don’t even try to overcome our fear. Also, what happens here is that we think we cannot do something, and this thought prevents us from taking action. We lose plenty of opportunities when we live our daily life with this mindset.

What to do

The first step we should take instead, is to face the obstacle immediately. The obstacle in this case is our negative thought. And how do we face a negative thought? We have two options:

  1. replacing it with a positive thought immediately, and take action;
  2. ignoring it, improvising something and behaving as if we actually have control.

Whatever the choice is, we have to push ourselves out of our comfort zone. So, which are the steps to do that?

Steps to get out of our comfort zone:

  1. Ignore or replace any negative thoughts: This first step is the easiest one. We just have to stop letting negative thoughts and feelings take over, and switch immediately to the second step, which is…
  2. Take action: It’s important to take the first step. This can be any small step, like building a simple and small habit.
  3. You did it! Before we even realize it, we did something we thought we couldn’t do. And this is actually a first step to build a healthy self-confidence, that will help us step out of our comfort zone in the future.

Actually, doing what we think we cannot do, is the key to real growth. Leaving our comfort zone and pushing ourselves beyond our limits, is the key to improvement. Normally, people think that progress means living the life they are supposed to live, going from being a child to being a teenager, from being an adult to retiring, and the majority of people live this way. People do not even ask themselves if they can do more, if they can live a better life or if they can be happier.

Real growth is not about being how we are supposed to be; it is not about being as others want us to be. Real personal growth is unleashing our potential and going beyond our limits. It means thinking outside the box, always, looking at ourselves from unusual perspectives.

The only way to unleash our potential is to stop overthinking, and take action; the first step is the simplest one, but also the hardest one. And it’s worth a try: once we take that step, we impress ourselves with how far we can go, and how much we can achieve, despite all the people who told us that we couldn’t because it was “impossible.”

Remember: IMPOSSIBLE = I’M POSSIBLE 🙂

Wayne Walter Dyer’s Best Lessons

As many of you already know, the world has lost one of the most inspiring and incredible men of this century, one of the best motivational speakers and best-selling authors of all times, Wayne Walter Dyer.
He passed away on August 29th, at the age of 75, and according to his family, he died in his sleep.

Since he brought a lot to my life and inspired me a lot during the last years, I deeply desire to share with you his most beautiful and important quotes about life, love, happiness and success.

  1. “Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.”
  2. “With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.”
  3. “You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with.”
  4. “You are not stuck where you are unless you decide to be.”
  5. “Passion is a feeling that tells you: this is the right thing to do. Nothing can stand in my way. It doesn’t matter what anyone else says. This feeling is so good that it cannot be ignored. I’m going to follow my bliss and act upon this glorious sensation of joy.”
  6. “All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with
    another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change
    you. The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you
    are looking for external reasons to explain your unhappiness or
    frustration. You may succeed in making another feel guilty about
    something by blaming him, but you won’t succeed in changing whatever it
    is about you that is making you unhappy. ”
  7. “Your reputation is in the hands of others. That’s what the reputation is. You can’t control that. The only thing you can control is your character.”
  8. “When the choice is to be right or to be kind, always make the choice that brings peace”
  9. “I am realistic – I expect miracles.”
  10. “You have everything you need for complete peace and total happiness right now.”
  11. “In any relationship in which two people become one, the end result is two half people.”
  12. “Loving people live in a loving world, hostile people live in a hostile world. Same world.”
  13. “Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.”
  14. “The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don’t know anything about.”
  15. “I would rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I’m not.”
  16. “I am thankful to all those who said no. It’s because of them, I did it myself.”
  17. “Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.”
  18. “You get treated in life the way you teach people to treat you.”
  19. “Present-moment living, getting in touch with your now, is at the heart of effective living. When you think about it, there really is no other moment you can live. Now is all there is, and the future is just another present moment to live when it arrives.”
  20. “Begin with the end in mind. Start with the end outcome and work backwards to make your dream possible.”
  21. “Love is co-operation rather than competition.”
  22. “It’s never crowded along the extra mile.”
  23. “When you have the choice between being right and being kind just choose kind.”
  24. “The more you see yourself as what you’d like to become, and act as if what you want is already there, the more you’ll activate those dormant forces that will collaborate to transform your dream into your reality.”
  25. “There is no stress in the world, only people thinking stressful thoughts.”
  26. “Upon awakening, let the words Thank You flow from your lips, for this will remind you to begin your day with gratitude and compassion.”
  27. “Once you believe in yourself
    and see your soul as divine and precious,
    you’ll automatically be converted
    to a being who can create miracles.”

Hope Dr.Dyer’s wisdom will always accompany and inspire you in your daily routine.
And I’m sure the world will never forget such a great man.
