How to Make Sure Your Glass is Always Full

Regina CatesIf I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…

Money does not make you rich, character does. There are lots of wealthy people who are absolutely impoverished in character. You cannot buy a reputation for being a person of good character. It is earned by being a respectful, kind and responsible. You are truly wealthy when you accept the greatest legacy you will ever leave is choosing how well you live.

Be genuinely grateful for what you have in life and tearing up the list of what you do not have will be gratifying. Attitude is everything. Have an attitude of lack, and life will be a never-ending search for the next “thing” to fill the holes within your heart. An attitude of gratitude magically plugs those holes.

Treating other people as you want to be treated does not mean waiting for them to go first. Leaders lead by “being the change they want to see.” Frustration, anger and disappointment come from waiting for others to go first.

You cannot change anyone other than yourself. When you change yourself for the better, the world changes for the better because your positive actions influence those who see your behaviour. That is why changed people change people, without trying. They lead change by example.

Every soul is whole no matter how wounded the human being. No matter how low you have gone in life, there is wisdom and strength within you that will get you successfully to the other side. The key is to accept you are not your problems. YOU are bigger than any challenge you face.

Regardless of what happened to you in the past or how you were mistreated by others, what matters most is how you are treating yourself today. Hurting yourself will never get back at those who hurt you in the first place. The truth is that loving yourself is an excellent way to prove their mistreatment wrong.

Being gentle with yourself, other people and all life is one of the strongest things you do. Gentleness is not weakness. It takes great strength to have the self-control necessary to be kind.

You are going to lose a friend and you will find a new friend. You will lose a love and you will find a new love. You will lose a job and you will find a new job. You will lose a bad habit and you will find a good habit. There is gain through loss. Everything changes so don’t get stuck in the hard parts of life. Instead view the challenges as opportunities to grow and you will blossom.

It’s okay to get angry and frustrated at times. It’s not okay to make these a lifestyle. You are responsible for your own happiness. If life is not going well then it is time for you to do something about it.

Your glass will only remain half full until you realize you are the one holding the pitcher. Don’t sit around waiting for someone to rescue you. You must be your own superhero.

    Attitude The Power of One

    You do not have to see all the steps just take the first one

    An area of importance to us all, should we decide to be better

    Getting the best from yourself and others all starts with one: one thought … one word … one action.
    “One” is the first note in orchestrating the personal attitude that shapes and directs your life – and impacts the members of your team. Contrary to the lyrics from a classic rock song, one is not the loneliest number. It’s the most important one!
    Your thoughts, words, and actions are like individual notes that work in concert to create the power of one person – YOU – to make a difference. You can harness your “power of one” if you simply:

    • Catch one negative thought and turn it into a positive one;
    • Think of one thing for which you are grateful at the beginning of each day;
    • Say one “Fantastic!” when a friend or team member asks how you are doing;
    • Assume the best in one upcoming situation;
    • Keep on moving one more time when you experience adversity;
    • Help one friend or colleague in a time of need – and take pride in it.

    Many people used to feel that one vote in an election couldn’t really make a difference. Well, recent political elections that have been decided by razor thin margins have proven them wrong. A single
    act can make a difference … it can create a ripple effect felt many miles and people away. So, ask yourself: What’s one thing I can do today that will make a positive difference in my attitude? Then DO IT!
    Repeat that process every day and your life will improve – and so will the lives of the people you lead. Attitudes are truly powerful … and they’re contagious!

    Be nice to people on your way up. You might need them on the way down. — Jimmy Durante

    5 Unique Ways to Forgive and Let Go

    PMA added: 

    A positive mental attitude is an irresistible force that knows no such thing as an immovable body.
    Time and again we hear stories about ordinary people who do seemingly impossible things when they find themselves in an emergency situation. They perform herculean feats of strength and endurance, things they never dreamed they were capable of doing. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could harness that strength and make it available anytime you need it? You can — if you believe you can. No doubt you can remember a time in your life when you were exceptionally focused on your objective, a time when you achieved more in less time than ever before. Perhaps it was an impending vacation that motivated you to get everything done before you departed, or perhaps it was a “must pass” exam that helped you focus your concentration. The intensity that you developed in those situations is always available to you when you have a Positive Mental Attitude.       Napoleon Hill

    5 Unique Ways to Forgive and Let Go

    “The past has no power over the present moment.”
    ―Eckhart Tolle

    There is great value in every act of forgiveness.  You can forgive yourself, you can forgive others, and you can forgive even when you don’t know exactly who to forgive, because forgiveness is not about who is to blame or who is at fault.  It is about letting go, completely and permanently within yourself.

    Forgiveness is recognizing the reality that what has happened has already happened, and that there’s no point in allowing it to dominate the rest of your life.  Forgiveness refreshingly cleans the slate and enables you to step forward.  Here are five unique ways to make this step possible:

    1.  Stop trying for a while.

    If you’re trying hard and haplessly making zero progress, stop trying.  Stop trying and start being.

    When you see yourself as trying – to do something else or get somewhere else – you don’t interpret what you have and where you are as being good enough.  This perception of constantly trying makes living seem like an endless struggle.

    There is great value within you right here, right now.  Allow it to come out, willingly and without a struggle.  Instead of trying to get to some other point in your life, give your full attention to doing your very best with the life you are living now.  Instead of believing that you are not there yet, be grateful that you are right where you are meant to be at this moment.

    Yes, by all means set goals and take steps in the right direction, but don’t disregard the steps as you take them – these steps are your life’s story.  Let go of all the needless trying and let yourself take these steps peacefully and mindfully.  Let go of the judgments, forgive the past, and let this moment be as incredible as it is.  (This is something Angel and I discuss in the Adversity and Happiness chapters of 1,000 Little Things Happy, Successful People Do Differently.)

    2.  Be the watcher of your thoughts and emotions.

    In his best selling book, The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle tells us to be the watcher of our thoughts.  What he suggests is that instead of trying to change our thoughts – via gratitude or deliberate forgiveness, for example – we need to simply notice our thoughts without getting caught up in them.

    You are ultimately the sole creator of your own feelings.  When negative thoughts arise based on past experiences or future worries, as they sometimes will, realize that these are simply issues your mind (not you) is working through.  Pause, be present and pay close attention.  Think about these thoughts and emotions consciously, almost as if you were a bystander looking in.  Separate yourself from your mind’s thinking.

    Perhaps after you study your thoughts and emotions you will think to yourself, “Wow, am I really still working through that?”  And guess what?  Over time, your negative feelings and emotions will lessen and genuine awareness, love and acceptance will grow in their place.  You will begin to realize that your mind is just an instrument, and you are in control of your mind, not the other way around.

    By not judging your thoughts or blaming them on anyone else, and merely watching them, there will be a big shift within you – your sense of self worth.

    It’s not like you won’t get upset anymore or never feel anxious, but knowing that your thoughts and emotions are just fleeting feelings that are independent of YOU will help ease your tension and increase your positive presence, allowing you to forgive and let go.

    3.  Love.

    Feeling sorry for yourself and sabotaging the present moment with resentful thoughts of the past won’t make anything better.  Hurting someone else will never ease your own inner angst.

    If you’re disappointed with yourself or frustrated with someone else, the answer is not to take it out on the world around you.  Retribution, whether it’s focused on yourself or others, brings zero value into your life.

    The way beyond the pain from the past is not with vengeance, mockery, bullying or retaliation, but with present love.

    Forgive the past, forgive yourself, forgive others, and love the present moment for what it’s worth.  There are plenty of beautiful things to love right now; you just have to want to see them.  Loving is never easy, especially when times are tough, yet it is easily the most powerful and positively enduring action possible.

    If you’re feeling pain, don’t take action that creates even more pain.  Don’t try to cover darkness with darkness.  Find the light.  Act out of love.  Do something that will enable you to move forward toward a more fulfilling reality.  There is always something good you can do.  There is always love to give.  Fill your heart with it and act in everyone’s best interest, especially your own.

    4.  Seek positive revenge by living well.

    Are you contemplating revenge?  You know that’s negative thinking getting the best of you.  However, there is a way to seek revenge positively.

    How?  Forget about them.  Remember you.  Working on a better you is more fulfilling than hanging on to contempt of others.  Let it all go and hold on to your growth and kindness instead.  If you train yourself to consistently be more loving in thoughts and actions, your positive energy will attract more positive results into your current reality.

    Be unlike the person or situation that hurt you.  Let go and grow past your pain.  Carry on living well in a way that creates peace in your heart.  The energy you would spend trying to get real revenge can be better spent creating an amazing future for yourself.

    The bottom line is that the best revenge is happiness, because nothing drives your adversaries more insane than seeing a fresh smile on your face.  (Read Buddha’s Brain.)

    5.  Let go of the need to forgive every mistake.

    Mistakes are the growing pains of wisdom.  Most of the time they just need to be accepted, not forgiven.

    There is an obvious shift in your heart and mind that happens when you go from feeling hurt and upset to peaceful and loving, but it’s not necessarily forgiveness that’s taking place, it’s just the realization that there was nothing to forgive in the first place.

    To help you wrap your head around this concept, try to look at your situation from 40,000 feet.  Imagine a more seasoned, wiser and more compassionate version of yourself sitting at the mountaintop of life, looking down and watching as the younger minded, current version of you hacks your way through life.

    You see yourself holding on to false beliefs and making epic errors of judgment as you manoeuvre through life’s many obstacles.  You watch the children of the world growing up in challenging times that test their sense of self-confidence, yet they push forward bravely.  You see the coming generation radiating with passion and love as they fail forward, learning through their mistakes.

    And you have to wonder:  Would this wiser version of yourself conclude that everyone in their own unique way was doing their very best.  And if everyone is trying to do their best, what needs to be forgiven?  Not being perfect?

    Perfection doesn’t exist.  Forgiveness is oftentimes the simple realization that there is nothing that actually needs to be forgiven.

    Your turn…

    Who would you like to forgive?  What stressful burdens do you need to let go of and rise above? 

    We will forget and forgive any judgment error that you make, but integrity mistakes are forever. — David Cottrell

    Grateful Gratitude

    Character is accurately reflected in one’s mental attitude.
    Without a strong foundation built on positive character traits, success will not long endure. It is virtually impossible to fake good character. Phonies are quickly spotted because they haven’t the substance and determination to maintain the charade. Developing good character begins with a positive attitude. Your desire to be a good, decent, honest, considerate person must first take place in your mind. When you make the decision to become a person of character, you will also find that you are much more willing to do the right thing simply because it is the right thing to do.- Napoleon hill

    "Today I am grateful for resources."
    Gratitude opens the door to power wisdom and the creativity of the universeIt is essential to give your focus and attention to the resources that surround you always.  And when you feel completely cut off and like there is a lack of resources, THAT is the time to give this extra attention…
    There is always an abundance of resources around you, and just like everything else, noticing the resources (or not noticing them)
    is completely up to you – it is your choice. And trust me, when you take time to refocus your attention on resources (instead of the absence of them) then MORE flows into your life. If you are struggling with this, that’s okay, here’s some help…
    Oxygen is a resource for you – Electricity is a resource for you – Water is a resource for you – Love is a resource for you
    Energy is a resource for you
    and the list goes on and on…
    Remember, it is up to you to choose to see the resources that surround you. It is up to you to celebrate them and love them and give thanks for them, so… "Today, I am grateful for resources." You are Extraordinary!

    Gratitude unlocks the fullness of lifeGratitude is an essential element when you want to raise your vibration.  You hear about how important it is at every turn. I personally talk about it all the time and it is a major part of many of my programs.

    So, here’s the crazy thing that I want to share with you today because I’m concerned you may be struggling with it and it actually may be sabotaging your manifesting?
    What is it?

    "A moment of gratitude makes a difference in your attitude." Bruce Wilkinson

    Gratitude Guilt!
    Grattiude is the most important single ingredient to lifeHere is what seems to be happening with a lot of people, and maybe it is happening to you too…
    They realize the importance of gratitude, so they decide to start incorporating it into their lives and they make sure to take time for gratitude every day.

    At first it goes great, they feel better, they feel alive and aware of how much is in their lives that they can be grateful for that they weren’t even noticing before.

    They start to feel much more connected to the power of the moment. They even start to notice that during the rest of their day they are seeing more and more things to be grateful for, big things and small things seem to leap out at them and they are excited by how amazing these new found gratitude glasses feel.
    And then?
    Gratitude guilt starts to creep in and guilty thoughts bombard them, things like:

    · Well, I don’t want to make other people feel bad with all I have to be grateful for.

    · It’s not fair that I am experiencing gratitude for my life while the people I love aren’t.

    · My friends and family are going to judge me, so I’d better not share how grateful I am.

    · I don’t want to rub anyone else’s nose in my gratitude.

    · If I’m not struggling, then what I achieve isn’t valuable, and gratitude has eased my struggle, etc. Does this sound familiar?
