The world is more than any poison

Ever so often the anguish that rises in your ambiance is kinda blessing. It’s a mandate that some situation must be removed. Those who bring distractions to your peaceful abode. Especially if the peace is self-earned for which you work hard every day. There will always be those who are keen to water down whatever you do, no matter how good it is. Those who will try to pull you back or hinder your progress whichever possible ways.

So, how was your day today? Did you meet someone who tried to shame or guilt-trip you? Who told you that people are drawn to you only because of your looks and nothing else? That if your exterior is beautiful, you cannot be beautiful inside? Or, you are ugly because you don’t fit their definition of perfection? That you are only a body and not a soul? That you’re not worthy of their love and appreciation unless you follow their dictations? Did anyone fill you with such negativity that you must refuse every bit of appreciation that comes your way? Did you see someone abating the magic you bring to your surroundings? Did someone convince you that it is an ugly world made for cowardice to live in? Of those who are overfull with complex fears attacking others? That love is lust if not a blood relation? Did you find someone trivializing all kind of human bonds? Or someone who approves rapes inside the family? For each rapist has people who are his own. Did anyone try to shut you up by pointing a finger at you and force you to suffer? Did you run into someone who is covertly cutting roots of another and has no ability to water it, to bring life to it? Did anyone spill his poison on you today?

But that’s not how it is, honey. If someone tries to make you feel inferior, gives a grimace at your strength and beauty and highlights all the misfortunes you went through, it’s about the person himself. Because there’s no other way than expressing oneself. Crappy people will always come with their crappiness. But darling, this world is not only poison. People who question or doubt other’s choices are doubtful of themselves deep down. Places where you are made to feel small are never yours. Those who carry that invisible nastiness despite their sugar-coated words can be felt instantly. They will harden you and make you bitter and unforgiving if you let the poison in. Make a conscious choice else you will become one like them. A free soul feels like a fresh breeze. A medley of fragrances. And you always want to be that. And that’s how boundaries are placed for each person.

Never be convinced that you’re worth the shit and not love and honour. Don’t let the poison get in. Never give it a reason to stay. You deserve every bit of love, honour, appreciation that comes your way. You can be beautiful in the best-est and countless possible ways. A fragrance that cannot be caged. That lingers when you are gone. No matter how you look, what you have, you are enough and you can choose to grow. You can always  choose to flow despite that stagnation.

Choose wisely

They say “If you lie down with dogs, you’ll get up with fleas”. If you don’t want fleas, don’t lie down with dogs. If you don’t want negativity in your life, don’t hang around negative people. If you want more than average, stop hanging around average people. If success is important to you, don’t hang around with people who have no ambition. If kindness is important to you, don’t spend time with unkind people. Your friends and peer group are a great reflection of you, because YOU choose them. Choose wisely.

Jim Rohn once said that we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with.

Now, many people will deny this fact, but research shows we are much more affected by our environment, and those around us, then we would like to believe.

The people around you MATTER..

If we are the average of the 5 people we spend the most time with, what if those 5 people we spend the most time with have no ambition? What if they are dragging us down? How can you get around this statistic?

Find a coach or Mentor. Find many coaches and many mentors. See, this also applies to the people you spend time with in LEARNING. If you listen to audio tapes or read books from great teachers on a daily basis, you are effectively spending time with them and they are influencing your life as well.

You must always surround yourself with those that are better than you in someway. Those who you can learn from in some way. That, is how you get better. Just like great competition brings out the best in great athletes, great people bring out the best in you.

Surround yourself with winners!

Surroundyourself with people that have things you want. With people that will force you to raise your own game. With people that will help push you forward. Not because they will give you hand outs, but because seeing them live life at that higher level will force you to get there yourself. Not because they will only ever be positive with you, but because they will always be straight with you. Winners don’t like hanging around with losers. You have to be on top of your game to play at the top.

They say if you surround yourself with 9 losers you’ll soon be the tenth. Getting comfortable is the worst thing you can do if you want to achieve anything of significance in life.

The comfort zone is great… if you are happy to settle for less than you can be. It’s not great if you want to reach your true potential in life. Get around those who are HUNGRY. Get around those who want to leave their mark in this world! Those who want to make a difference in this world.

They say misery loves company, well so does success! Success loves successful company, there’s just less to choose from.

There’s nothing better than getting together with a group of winners and WINNING!

If someone has the fitness, health and body you want… get around that person or more people like that. Soon their standards will become yours. If someone has the wealth, business, happiness or life you want – get around those people. Get around the people that are living at a higher level than you.

If you are only hanging around people who drag you down. Those people who can always find a reason why it CAN’T be done… that will also become your reality…You will never see a successful person hanging around a DREAM KILLER. If you want SUCCESS hang around with DREAM CHASERS. Find someone that is doing what YOU want to do. Follow them, consume their material, read their books, listen and LEARN.

The more you learn from these people the more you will become like these people. You might have to cut some negativity out of your life and it won’t be easy. But what do you want from your life?

Negativity is a virus. You must get it out of your life, otherwise you will be the one that suffers in the end.

Everyday

Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words.

~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Never Blame Anyone

Never complain about anyone, nor anything,

because basically you have done

what you wanted in your life.

 

Accept the difficulty of improving yourself

and the courage to start changing yourself.

The triumph of the true man emerges from

the ashes of his mistake.

 

Never complain about your loneliness or your luck,

face it with courage and accept it.

In one way or another it is the outcome of

your acts and the thought  that you always

have to win.

 

Don’t be embittered by your own failure or

blame it on another, accept yourself now or

you’ll keep making excuses for yourself like a child.

Remember that any time is

a good time to begin and that nobody

is so horrible that they should give up.

 

Don’t forget that the cause of your present

is your past, as well as the cause of your

future will be your present.

 

Learn from the bold, the strong,

those who don’t accept situations, who

will live in spite of everything.

Think less in your problems and more in your work and

your problems, without eliminating them, will die.

 

Learn how to grow from the pain and to be

greater than the greatest of those

obstacles.

Look at yourself in the mirror

and you will be free and strong and you will stop

being a puppet of circumstances because you

yourself are your own destiny.

 

Arise and look at the sun in the mornings

and breathe the light of the dawn.

You are part of the force of your life;

now wake up, fight, get going, be decisive

and you will triumph in life.

Never think about

luck because luck is

the pretext of losers.

Samurai Song

When I had no roof, I made audacity my roof.

When I had no supper, my eyes dined.

When I had no eyes, I listened.

When I had no ears , I thought.

When I had no thought, I waited.

When I had no father, I made care my father.

When I had no mother, I embraced order.

When I had no friend, I made quiet my friend.

When I had no enemy, I opposed my body.

When I had no temple , I made my voice my temple.

When I have no priest, my tongue is my choir.

When I have no means , fortune is my means.

When I have nothing, death will be my fortune.

Need is my tactic, detachment is my strategy.

When I had no lover, I courted my sleep.

Don’t let it die !

For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.”
