The Magic of Thinking Big

Everything begins with a thought. I am a big believer in thinking BIG. Why NOT? I have a burning desire to accomplish big things in my life. As such, I teach and coach my students and clients to do the same. I teach them to think BIG. There have been many times in my life that I have seen or heard of stories of men and women doing the unthinkable. Rising up to the challenge and doing things that were thought of as “impossible”. They reached high levels of success and great wealth despite of their challenges. This has always inspired me. I hope it also inspires you.

A few years ago , when taking a business course in college, I read a book titled, The Magic of Thinking Big, by David Schwartz. This book inspired me a great deal. I still review many portions of it today. It is very uplifting. It teaches you to set high goals and then exceed them. It also helps you discover the secrets of how the mind works and how it can best work for you. It goes over how you can reach success by the power of the mind and your thoughts.

I want to share one of the many ideas shared in this book. As I share with many of the clients I coach, in order to think big you need to develop BELIEF. You must have belief in yourself and belief in your goals and dreams. Belief is imperative for success. One of my favorite quotes by Henry Ford says it best, “If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.”

Here are some things that Schwartz shares in regards to developing powerful beliefs:

Think of success, not failure

Your thoughts are very powerful. So make sure you are thinking success all the time. At work, at home, make sure you substitute success thinking for any failure thinking you might have. Know that you will win, not lose. Have a WIN, WIN MENTALLY in all that you do. Let this dominate your thoughts. It takes practice, but when done long enough it will become second nature and come naturally. Remember that thoughts become things. So keep you mind thinking positive things. Think success conditions and your mind will create plans to produce success. If you think of failing you will produce that result. Always think success.

Remind yourself daily that you are better than you think you are

Successful people are not know it alls or super people with foreign capabilities. They are not supermen or have a super intellect. Also, keep in mind that success is not based on luck or on something mystical or far from reach. Successful people are just ordinary people who have learned and developed belief in themselves and in what they do. They have a burning desire to follow their goals and dreams and believe they can make them happen. There will be times you may be discouraged, but also remind yourself you are better than you think you are. Never sell yourself short.

Believe BIG

Your success will be determined by how big you think. The size of your success is determined by the size of your belief. If you think little goals and expect little achievements, then that is exactly what you will get. Think big goals and achieve big success. Set high goals for yourself and change them accordingly if needed. Set the bar high.

Lastly, I want to encourage you never to settle for less than what you deserve. NEVER Settle for anything in life. Think Big and make it happen. All is in your hands. TAKE CONTROL. Stop making excuses. Schwartz calls this excusitis, a mind-deading thought disease. Many people suffer from this disease, way too many in my opinion. These people have no plans in their life and find a book of reasons of why they cannot be successful.

Why settle for a bad relationship? A job you hate or dislike? Financial struggle? You do not have to settle in life. Think Big!

Wishing you much success on your journey,

DON’T LOSE HOPE! Keep Strong, Keep focused!

Today as many days, I finished my long day at work. As I finished up my day working with my amazing high school students, I had the same pressing thought throughout the day. “Don’t lose hope, keep strong, keep focused! Things will slowly unfold perfectly as they must!” This was a reoccurring thought and was heartfelt. It seemed as if I kept repeating it to my students time and time again.

Many of my students seem to be going through some difficult challenges in life. I have seen and noticed that many of them have lost faith in themselves. Many have lost their vision for their lives. Some don’t even have a vision for themselves. As many people, they have lost hope and have lost their way.

I always ask my students what they see in their future. Unfortunately, many times they do not think much about their future as they are too focused on their current challenges and difficulties. To many of them their future is just too much to think about at the moment or just seems too cloudy. I, too, have felt this way before and can relate to many of these feelings. It takes courage to go through life and never lose sight of your vision, your goals, and your dreams.

Working with my students has always inspired me. One of the things I do is teach, coach and mentor high school students that are considered at are at risk, or kids that have challenges completing their high school education in a traditional high school setting. Many of my student’s stories and challenges remind me of how easy it is to lose focus on our goals and dreams. I am reminded of how easy it is to get caught up in our day-to-day challenges and in turn lose complete focus on the possibilities and the opportunities that lay before us. Thus, I was inspired to write this blog. For my students and others that might feel weak at times.

I know that things are not always easy. I have been through much pain in my life thus far, so I can relate to many challenges. I can relate to the feeling of despair, loneliness, anger, depression, you name it. I have felt it all. There were times in which I found myself alone with no direction, no passion, no focus, and no purpose. I know how hard things can get. I know how you can hit rock bottom in a dark tunnel with a feeling of no way out. But above it all, I have learned this, that as long as we have life, there is a chance! A chance to win! A chance to take control of OUR lives! A chance to change the way we think! A chance to dream and make all of our dreams and goals a reality! WHY? BECAUSE WE CAN!

This is what I can tell you. Life is happening and will always be happening and challenges are part of life. I have come to understand that is not so much what happens to you that matters and determines where you end up in life, it is what YOU DO and how YOU react to what happens to you that makes a difference! It is how you take things, how you behave, how you take action to what happens in life that makes a difference. When you understand this simple concept, your life will change.

We must take full reasonability of where our lives end up. Many people get paralyzed when something bad happens or does not go their way. To some, fear determines how they live their life. I want to encourage you not to live in fear and to make the necessary changes in your life needed to live the life you have always dreamed of.

The beauty of today is that you can chose to steer your life in any desired direction. Today is that day in which you can make a difference in any area of your life. Today, this very moment, you can decide to make a positive change in your attitude, your beliefs, associations, and behaviors. YOU alone have the power to make all your dreams and goals a reality. This is the power of free will.

The question is, “Do you think YOU have what it takes to make it happen? Do you think you are capable to go through challenges that WILL come your way? Are you courageous enough to go after your dreams with a burning desire and passion?

The answer to these questions will determine how and where you end up ten years from now. It will determine how the story of your life unfolds. I am a strong believer that anyone, no matter where you have been or where you come from, can achieve all their goals and dreams. Why? Because WE can! When you decide you want something and set it in our mind, you can achieve it! I love this quote by Jim Rohn that says, “If you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree.”

We are amazing creatures with amazing, unlimited potential. I encourage you to take courage. To dream big and go after you your goals and dreams with a burning desire regardless of the many challenges that might come your way. Don’t lose hope! Keep strong, Keep focused.

Wishing you much success on your journey,

Attract the LIFE you Want!

I know we all have goals, dreams and aspirations in life. It is a beautiful thing to dream big. We are amazing creatures with unlimited potential! But keep in mind that in order to attract the life you want you need to become an attractive person and learn to be happy in the present moment!

Happiness is a conscious choice! It is something you decide! You do NOT need anything else right now in order to be happy! As great business philosophers and mentors have taught me, it is important to be happy now, as you pursue what you want.

Also, learn to live in an attitude of gratitude and you will being to attract the things you want. In addition, it is important you maintain good, positive, empowering beliefs! Check into your beliefs. What are your beliefs in regards to money? success? wealth? health? If you have disempowering beliefs, create new empowering beliefs. Note that your beliefs are your reality, so keep good, empowering beliefs!

Lastly, always surround yourself with positive people and be in high, positive energy! Stay away from low, negative energy. Keep positive and dream big! Anything is possible when you believe in the beauty of your dreams!

Wishing you much success on your journey,

Stay away from Negativity

We are surrounded with an array of people in our life. Some are positive and some can be quite negative. I am sure that you have met or currently know someone in your life that is negative or very judgmental. It is important that we limit our associations with these people. As we go through our journey, working and moving towards our goals and dreams, we must learn to protect ourselves and our attitude from negative associations.

It is unfortunate to see that some people feed off negativity and love drama. Sadly enough, a lot of times this has to do with their personal unhappiness, lack of productivity, or their negative beliefs. Many people simply enjoy seeing someone else’s disappointment. These types of people can be quite judgmental as well. They see the flaws in others and point fingers quite easily. They usually see the negative in people and pass judgments based on their personal beliefs. These people drain and suck away our energy, so it is important we understand the value of limited association. Be cautious with your associations in your life.

This quote by Terry Olick explains it best, “Negativity sucks away energy. If part of the negativity stems from your attitude or perspective, commit yourself at the beginning of each day and each activity to find something positive in yourself and in others around you. If the people around you are negative and you can’t change that, either remove yourself from the situation or view it simply as one obstacle you face in pursuing your own potential. Stay focused on your our own goals and make the best out of each situation.”

Protect yourself and your attitude and limit your association with negative people. You DO NOT need negativity in your life. I know there are times we have people in our lives we have to deal with (ex: co-workers, family) but learn how to limit their ability to influence you. DO NOT allow their ideas, opinions and negative judgments influence you. DO NOT give them any power. Limit your association to these people.

Good associations are important for your personal growth. Associate yourself with people that are positive and will help you grow. Stay away from negativity and judgmental individuals. Connect yourself with people who are positive and value you as a person. People who genuinely care and love you for who you are. People who rise you up instead of step you down! It is best to be in company of a few than with an army of bad company.

Remember that good associations are important as you go through your journey. Keep positive and keep smiling.

Wishing you much success on your journey,

The Importance of Accepting Change

Accepting change in our lives is important. There are times we find change difficult in both our personal and professional lives. Change, however, is something that is part of life and must be accepted. If we resist and/or are reluctant to change, it will be difficult for us to achieve our goals and dreams. Accept change and try to see the positive that comes from those changes.

Wishing you much success on your journey,

Forgiveness: A Virtue of the Courageous and Strong

How many of you have been hurt or betrayed by others? People you love? People you work with day to day? Or simply just anyone? Well, based on my experience I think most of us have been hurt. Would you agree?

I am also almost certain you have heard the about forgiveness. Some of us have chosen to look the other way when we think about this concept. Some do not even ponder the idea or have chosen to ignore it all together. Forgiveness, however, is a virtue of the courageous and strong. It is most beneficial to YOU.

I have learned, firsthand, that forgiveness is not an easy thing to do. It can be difficult and at times seem impossible. Although this could be the case, forgiveness can also be liberating to our soul. That is why forgiveness is so important. Many times it has to do a lot with YOU. A quote comes to mind when I think
about forgiveness, “When you hold resentment toward another, you are bound to that person or condition by an emotional link that is stronger than steel. Forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and get free.”

I think this quotes explains forgiveness best. You see when you hold on to unforgiveness and resentment, you are still bound to the negativity that comes with that person or event. YOU are giving that person or thing power. For example, when you think about when someone hurt you I doubt you feel a sense of joy, peace or happiness right? Most of us get angry, upset, saddened or disappointed when we think about the person that did us wrong. The latter, however, is not at all helpful in our lives.

A lot of us think of forgiveness as means that we should say all is FORGOTTEN and things should go back to the way they were, not necessarily. That might be very difficult and impossible in some cases.

This is my take on forgiveness and how I have come to understand it. See all that is required when it comes to forgiveness is the decision to MOVE FORWARD and LET GO of old pain and hurt. You do not have to let the person who hurt you back in your life or even be friendly with them. This does not, however, mean you have to hate the person either. What we have to do is allow yourself to let go of all the negative emotions that are associated with that person. If you chose to hold on to the pain, YOU are choosing to allow that person to continue to hurt you. So you see, YOU CAN CHOOSE TO stop letting them hurt you. I know that biblically this might a bit different that my take on forgiveness, but I do believe that forgiveness is something that is required.

Remember it is your choice to learn to let go of a past wrong and your choice to no longer allow yourself to be hurt by it.

Also, it is important to know that not forgiving others brings about bitterness. There has actually been medical research done showing that bitterness has been linked to stress-related illnesses. I doubt you NEED a stress-related illness in y our life.

Just know that by forgiving others, you set yourself free spiritually and emotionally. I encourage you to be strong and courageous, forgive. This is most beneficial to YOU.

I wish you much success and peace on your journey,

Develop An Attitude of Gratitude

How often do you take time to count your blessings and the good things you have in your life? Do you tend to focus on the positive or negative things in your life?

Many people fail to look at the wonderful things that surround them and instead focus on what is missing. It is very important to learn how to appreciate all the positives you have in your life. When you focus on what is missing you will feel disconnected and dissatisfied with your life. There is no joy in that! On the other hand, however, when you develop an attitude of gratitude you will feel more positive, energized and optimistic about life in general.

It is also important to note that when you have an attitude of gratitude you reduce your stress levels. When you make a conscious choice to see the good, positive things that already exist in your life you will feel more content. You can take control of your own happiness! This is powerful! Having an attitude of gratitude will help you focus on things that are important and valuable to you.

I encourage you to make gratitude a part of your daily life. This can radically change your perspective in life and it will surely make a positive impact as well. When you focus on the positive things, instead of any disappointment and/or discontent, you will create a feeling of abundance. You will also begin to see endless, wonderful possibilities in your life.

I suggest you take some time to think about five to ten things you are grateful for. These can be people in your life, personal attributes, material things… anything you are grateful for. Hopefully this will come easily to you. If you cannot think of some things, think of the simple things you might take for granted, such as clean water, food, health and shelter. After you make your list, take a few minutes every day in the morning and at night to read through your gratitude list. You will see how quickly you will develop a better attitude and be inspired in your life.

Remember, there is much to be grateful for. Keep this saying in mind “I cried because I did not have shoes, until I met someone that had no feet” Take time to count your blessings everyday. It makes a huge difference!

Wish you much success on your journey,

Learning to Love Yourself

Many people that try to satisfy their lack of self-love with a number of things, material, superficial, or  temporary things. Love, however, does not come in form of material things, it comes from within. It is important to learn to love yourself unconditionally in order for you to give love to others. 

Embrace yourself, accept yourself, be with yourself, be your own best friend, shower yourself with the love you deserve!

The Importance of a Healthy Attitude

I am sure you have heard the importance of having a good attitude in everything you do. This is not always easy for some people, but this is important and very true. If you want to be successful in life, it is imperative that you have a good attitude. There is no question about it!

Understand and keep in mind that what you feel determines your attitude. We all go through our day  moved by our emotions.  We then deal with the world in terms of how we feel about certain things. Your feelings are very powerful. They can inspire you, or they can paralyze you. You have to be very aware of how you are feeling about things. Take some time to explore your feelings. How do you feel about your family? About work? Business? Certain people? Your friends?  How do you feel about your past? Your future? How you feel about these things determines your attitude. Know that your attitude will determine the quality for your life.

When you think about your past I am sure some feelings come to mind. It is important to note that you must learn to develop a healthy attitude about your past if you want to be successful in the future. This might not always be easy, but I encourage you to use your past experiences as a school with lessons to be learned. Some things in your past might be hurtful or even painful and difficult to deal with, but know that the past is something we cannot change. Also, know that your past does not have to be your future unless you chose to live there!

It is so sad and unfortunate to see some people still live in their past and with their past emotions. Many take years to get over past mistakes and failures and bring those emotions to the present and future. Do not beat yourself up for past mistakes and failures.  Do not let these feelings and emotions overpower and overwhelm you with remorse and guilt. You MUST not let these feelings of the past control your future.

Jim Rohn states, it is key that you develop a new healthy philosophy about the past if you want to change your current attitude and have a better future. You must accept the fact that there is nothing you can do to change the past. It is vital that you change your attitude of the past in order to have a better attitude for the future. If you do not change your negative attitude about the past you will most likely have a future filled with the same feelings of the past. You cannot move forward to a better and brighter future until you close the door on the darkness of the past.

Remember the past was a school with a wealth of lessons, memories and experiences.  The present is now! Your future begins today. Today you have a new opportunity to make things happen for you. To make all your dreams and goals a reality. Your thoughts and feelings about today are crucial for contributing to your future. Be optimistic. Know that your future will only be a mirror of your current  attitude and philosophy about life. Keep positive and smiling.

Wishing you the best on your journey,

Embrace your Challenges

Life is so beautiful. I truly believe this wholeheartedly. I have been able to experience the beauty, the love, and the joy life can bring. However, I too have encountered numerous difficulties and challenges throughout my life thus far. Life, although full of beauty and joy, does come with its challenges.

One thing I have learned is to embrace those challenges. To dance in the rain. I have learned that no matter how hard things can get, there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. There is a lesson to be learned from each difficulty. There is an opportunity to grow. I want to share with you some thoughts on this subject.  

It is important to understand that every human being has experienced disappointment, heartache and despair. One a great business philosopher, Jim Rohn, calls it “the blowing winds of disappointment…” He states that although we all go through challenges in life we do not all end up in the same place.

Keep in mind that the same circumstances happen to us all.  We all have disappointments and challenges: the rich, the poor, the educated, the uneducated, etc. We all have difficulties. Know that challenges are not reserved for a certain population. They hit us all. We have all been blown by the winds of circumstances and difficulty, yet we all end of in different places. Why is that?

Well, our destinations in life are not determined by what happens to us. Our destination is determined by the way we CHOOSE to set our sail. Our destination is set by the way we CHOOSE to think! If you understand this simple idea and thought you can drastically change your life. Know that YOU have the ultimate choice of thought. “It is not what happens to you that matter so much, it is what you choose to do with what happens to you that makes the difference.”

This is a powerful idea. Know that you are in control of your thoughts and what you do. It is interesting to see how people react to challenges and difficulties. Many people go through challenges and get depressed and sit and cry about how hard life is. Some do nothing. Others sit and complain. Others feel sorry for themselves and choose to victimize themselves.  

There are some people, however that choose to learn from each challenge and disappointment. Be aware. Be a person open to grow and learn from each challenge. Understand that in every disappointment there is a lesson to be learned. An opportunity to grow. There is victory for you. You are not alone on your journey. Choose to learn and grow. Embrace the rain. Sunlight is approaching.

Much success and joy in your journey,

Eva Angelina
