7 Steps to Having Great Karma in Your Life

The energy of people who always seem happy and enjoy life can be contagious. Have you ever said to yourself “Why is it that these type of people draw a crowd and seem to attract everyone to them like a magnet?” Did you ever stop to think that it’s their positive attitude and the way they look and react to the world around them?

Mindset is everything. Having a positive attitude can do more than anything else towards getting you whatever you want out of life. They way you think and act says a lot about you as a person. Those who are in positions to make things happen for you will want to be around you and want to work with you to help make your dreams become a reality. Having a positive attitude in whatever you do will make things easier, less complicated and even more enjoyable.

Being successful and happy starts with a positive attitude.

Listed below are seven simple, but powerful strategic tips to assist you with having a more positive attitude and thus becoming a more powerful person.

1. Be passionate and action oriented towards living your life. Don’t just make it through the day, live it to the fullest without complaints. Dig your teeth into the grind of the day and live it like it was your last day on earth. Wring every moment out of it and live each day with passion. Passion and a positive attitude are contagious. You will find others attracted to you who are just as passionate about living and life. Set goals and complete them as expected. Here’s 50 Steps Towards Achieving Your Goals.

2. Be active instead of reacting to it. Don’t wait until something bad happens then try to deal with it. Be proactive and make something good happen constantly. You are solely responsible for what you make of the life you have. You only have one great life so don’t waste it. Create the best life you possibly can one day at a time.

3. Believe that each moment is perfect regardless of its outcome. Life is going to happen. That is a fact of life. How you deal with it matters and determines the results. Don’t allow the misfortunes to drag you down. Good can come from everything no matter how bad it may be at the time. Learn to open yourself up to learn from each experience. Gain strength from the bad things that happen in your life. Learning to have a positive attitude even when bad things are happening will help you to get through the bad times even stronger and drive you to be more than determined to succeed.

4. Learn to always be grateful for what you have. Gratitude determines your altitude. It’s a well-known fact among successful people that having gratitude will get you more than just satisfaction. There’s nothing wrong with having dreams and goals and desiring more out of life, but don’t forget to be grateful for what you already have. Those who are never satisfied or grateful with what they have fall into a “needy” or “poverty” mindset where they think they never have have anything. Eventually their poor attitude will doom them for ever having anything.

A positive attitude attracts positive actions. Gratitude attracts positive energy.

5. Daily.. Seize every opportunity that you can instead of regretting it later. Now, whatever you do, don’t put yourself in the poorhouse or take food out of your children’s mouths chasing every get-rich-quick scheme that comes around the corner. However, don’t be afraid to make and take opportunities that feel right. Do your research. Understand what’s required and factor in what the opportunity requires. Successful people have taught themselves to have a sixth sense when it comes to taking advantage of new opportunities. Keep in mind, nothing comes from comfort. The inevitable of success requires you to strentch yourself.

6. Always keep a good sense of humor. Laughing at yourself is the best medicine. People like to be around those who find humor in even the most awkward moments. Learn to laugh out loud and you will be more positive, especially if you can learn to laugh at yourself. Don’t take yourself, or life, too seriously. Life is much too short to waste it moping around in self pity. Don’t invite people to a pity party either. Humor is very attractive. A positive attitude can be born from a strong sense of humor.

7. Have the belief that you are in charge of your destiny. Your dreams will give you purpose.. No one can take your dreams from you except for you. As long as there’s breath in your body, there is no limit to how much you can accomplish. Life is not something that is going on around you. It is simply what you make of it. By doing nothing you are still creating your life but it may not be the one you desire. Why not get involved and create a life you want and can enjoy? Just remember, it all starts with you and learning to have a positive mental attitude.

Anyone who is truly successful and enjoys life, has a life to be proud of. This person more than likely has a positive attitude.

If you use these seven steps to develop a positive attitude, then you too will live a life worth living filled with happiness.

A Father is more than a Father

It is a wise father that knows his own child. William Shakespeare

happyfathers

A father is more than a father. He is a revolution. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads, grandfather’s, stepfather’s and those who have fathered without being a sperm giver. Father’s play an important role in any child’s life. Father’s are the nucleus of the family. They nurture and love a mother and give guidance and structure to the children.

dadhero

Growing up with a father in the home is almost rare these days. Some will question if this is part of the destruction of the family. Father’s never get the recognition they are due. Having a father in the home has many advantages.

  1. Father’s bear authority. According to the word of God, man (father) is the leader and the family should follow. Without a man in the home, there is lack of direction.
  2. Father’s have a love that mother (woman) can’t give. God made it necessary for man to nurture, love and protect.

My father didn’t grow up in the home with me, but he was there every step I took & every move I made. I’m fortunate to say he still does. Meet my handsome dad. I consider my life blessed because not only did I have my dad, my granddad’s were present too. Having a man in the home who represented a father was normal to me.

As a wife and mom, my son’s have experienced the same. My husband’s presence has had a dramatic impact in how I rear my son’s. They see him as an example and they follow his lead.

A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father. Frank Abagnale

The world can never have enough great men filling the role of father. Men who are father’s.. you are needed and certainly appreciated. Society will say one thing, but from a woman who appreciates your presence, your dominance, your guidance and your stature, thank you for all you do.

Until next time.. blessings & peace,

Nichelle

 

4 Types of Human Hunger

“Making money isn’t hard in itself,what’s hard is to earn itdoing something worth devoting your life to”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón

Thought of the day…

A question on the panel in #PlentifulLiving101. There are 4 types of hunger where people are striving to be fed.

1. Money – people need more of it. Something is always due or overdue. You fake the funk and rob Peter to pay Paul then go about it as if nothing is wrong with your right. You live in a fantasy because reality is too scary for sight.

An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. –Benjamin Franklin

2. Time – not enough of it exist. Work 8 hours to come home and prepare for tomorrow. You’re too tired to do anything else but complain you don’t have time. Waiting for Friday to eventually realize that it’s Monday already and you’re back to the same routine.

TIme quote
3. Security – nothing is guaranteed but life and death. I hate to inform you, but that good job isn’t either. Don’t be fooled and retire with just a pen. You better hope your 401K is still in tact. You should be accountable to you and everything else should be secondary. It ain’t like it used to be and if it was, don’t you want to be FREE.

“If a company won’t hire you, why don’t you start your own company? Steve Jobs created jobs, he didn’t apply for them. #Startup your dreams.”
Jarod Kintz

Dave Ramsey Quote
4. Spirituality – without it, people are misguided, mislead, misdirected and confused. They focus on external connections versus internal. When spirituality approaches them, they take credit for them being relieved for all of the problems above. Nothing can be done without a great relationship with the supplier. For HE provides a way to get through and be open to something new.

“Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love,
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved, as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.”
Francis of Assisi

 

Nevertheless, the combination of money, time, security and spirituality can cause one to think long and hard or just continue going about their daily routine of existing and not living. All are needed to survive and thrive. At some point, one must have a conversation with self. Be real!! If there is lack, increase won’t take place until you take action and move in a different direction in one or all areas of your life. Is it time to get busy?

“Always be smarter than the people who hire you.”
Lena Horne

Choosing a Mate That is Right for You

Don’t forget to LOVE yourself..

Finding someone to share your life with can be a challenge. Often times we look in all the wrong places and eventually get stuck with leftovers or trash that is difficult to be disposed of. Love and relationships are two different things. You must ask yourself, which one do you want. In choosing, make certain that you have the time that is needed to invest in what it is you want.
Before you can give of yourself, make certain you are confident in what it is you’re expecting and what it is you want to receive. Have some type of idea of the relationship you are looking for because this is the first step of valuing your time and that of others. Are you seeking a casual companion, a weekend lover or someone to spend the rest of your life with? Develop an idea of what you would call a great mate. While some might say that this limits your choices way too much, it’s possible to both know what you’re looking for and be open to something else.

Love pic1
The most tangible aspect is that you don’t have to settle. The secret sauce in finding a companion is in putting together a list of characteristics of your ideal mate and how you think about that list once you develop it. If you see every characteristic on it as absolutely necessary, you might miss out on meeting a wonderful person. After all, no one is perfect, but someone is perfect for you. If, on the other hand, you see your list as a set of guidelines, having it can help you choose the relationships you do and do not want to pursue. This is critical because far too many people are in a hurry to find a mate without vetting them out. This behavior could lead to all sorts of unhappiness, regret and a possible disaster. Being specific with intention can be beneficial in the long run.

Love make the world go round..

When seeking a relationship, it’s important to identify what you deem as necessary and unnecessary characteristics in a mate. Begin gathering your list by thinking back over past relationships, whether they were romantic in nature or not. Were any fulfilling? Are there any characteristics that other people have that make life incredibly difficult for you? I mean… things that would make you miserable to be around. Or better yet, things that you simply cannot tolerate. In contrast, are there any characteristics that you find absolutely necessary in someone you’re going to be close to? Things that make your heart flutter, your mind think and your life better. Now think about some attributes and aspects you would appreciate or admire in a potential new mate. These should be things that make you feel good and enjoy being around this person. Use these components to help get you started, both in making a list of things you want in a mate and in making another one of things that you don’t want and refuse to deal with. Anything that comes up in these thought exercises is probably pretty important to you and might even make or break a future relationship. So think long and careful about this process.

Love is bigger than one second, one hour and one day..

Just as you list the necessary and unnecessary components, you must acknowledge the desirable and undesirable characteristics too. After you have your lists of necessary and unnecessary characteristics, think about other aspects of people you’ve known that you have enjoyed or that have been hard for you to deal with. These may not be quite as important as the things you just listed, but they are aspects of another person that would be nice to have or to simply avoid. You may want to make these into a separate category on your list. That way, you can separate them in your mind from things that are absolutely necessary or to be avoided. Again, thinking long and hard while being aware and conscientious are key to successfully choosing the right mate.

Your CHOICE can make or break you…

You deserve to be picky. But how picky do you deserve to be. For me, being picky is a big deal. Just as I am careful in planning out other events in my life, I will be just as careful in trying to choose someone who is worthy of my time. After all, choice is a personal decision and it can also be a life-long one as well. Now that you have your list in front of you, it’s up to you to decide how closely you want to stick with it. Again, it’s your choice! Are the characteristics on the list important enough to you that any perfect mate would have to have all of them? On the other hand, are some of them absolutely essential and others you can live with or without? Know that you are free to make whatever choice you want to in this area. This is your life and you should have a say so. This is your relationship you’re considering, so the choices need to be suited to your own preferences and perspectives. In case you are not prepared, remember that choosing to be picky might mean that it is harder to find a mate. No matter how many of these characteristics he or she has, there will still be areas of your relationship that could be difficult in other areas. Relationships should grow. In that process, both of you will change. It is with great hopes that your intentions are to grow together and help each other along the way.

Let me count the ways that I LOVE you…
