A few weeks ago, I decided to re-read the second half1 of Evolve Your Brain by Joe Dispenza, D.C. There was so much great content that I knew I’d glean a ton more from it with another round.
Because of the move I mentioned in my last post, I haven’t been doing much reading, but today I picked Evolve Your Brain back up.
It’s borderline creepy how this works sometimes, but the part I was at could not have been better-fit to my recent situation and feelings. I keep talking about how I feel out-of-sorts or just not really like myself. . . . → Read More: Understanding Why Change Feels So Weird
I’m in the process of moving, so I am feeling like everything is a big mess right now… inside and out. Even after getting rid of about half my things, I still have what seems like a mountain of stuff… it’s amazing how much I’ve accumulated over the years. This applies to both physical and mental junk… although the mental clutter isn’t always as easy to get rid of.
I know I’ve mentioned it in past posts, but since I started my mental rewire, I feel pretty out-of-sorts sometimes. I came across a note I wrote to myself today. I can’t . . . → Read More: Messes Aren’t So Bad After All
I’m a perfectionist. As much as I try not to be, I am. At times, it can be helpful, but it seems more often that it just gets in the way. I’m starting to realize how often I put things off because of the pressure to make them just right… it can be overwhelming! I tell myself to loosen up a little, don’t be so hard on yourself. Well, yes… but it’s much easier said than done.
One reason I waited to tell people about this blog was because I wanted it to be perfect. I wanted to have a perfect writing . . . → Read More: Get Over Yourself – Not Everything Has to Be Perfect
I’ve decided to narrow my focus for my income strategies. Initially, I had planned to do a number of things at the same time – writing ebooks, affiliate marketing, adsense, pay-per-click ads – but I feel like that has made it so much harder to really get anywhere with any one project. I’m spreading myself too thin. So, I have chosen to focus on affiliate marketing.
What is affiliate marketing, anyway?
Basically, an affiliate sells someone else’s product for them and gets a commission for it. For example, I am an affiliate with Amazon.com, so I get a percentage of sales generated through . . . → Read More: Narrowing My Focus
I love to communicate. Whether it’s talking on the phone, in person, email, texting, instant messaging, Facebook… I can’t seem to get enough of it.
The problem is, I love communicating with my friends so much, I’ve become a slave to it. Whether it’s talking about the events of my day, chewing over problems, venting frustrations, catching up on happenings, seeking or giving advice, even just random chit-chat… I’ve become addicted to these things. I feel as though I need these interactions… like I won’t be okay without them sometimes. I’ve let myself become dependent on them to make me . . . → Read More: Taking a Vacation From Dependency
While intentions are great, and can even be the foundation of any well-laid plan, they really don’t amount to much until they are put into action. This is the most critical step in succeeding in just about anything, and yet, it’s the step I seem to have the most trouble with.
I can come up with a million excuses and justifications for why I do something or don’t do something, but all of that just delays action. I want to be successful. I want to create helpful, worthwhile, inspiring, motivational content and earn a living through that. I have found many excellent . . . → Read More: Make the Leap. Take Action.
I love to draw. I have begun to really like painting. I enjoy doing graphic design and industrial design (product design). I don’t mind writing – and I used to love creative writing, although its been ages since I’ve actually done it. Playing the trumpet with a full orchestra is among the most exhilarating experiences I’ve had – yet I haven’t played my trumpet in over a decade. There are many other things that apply at times, but these are things that have always been part of me – part of who I am. I want to do them… but I . . . → Read More: Why Do I Avoid What I Want to Do?
I want to help people.
I started my mental rewiring journey two months ago and I feel like so much has happened and changed and I’ve already grown so much. I’ve read a lot of great literature about a plethora of subjects, largely pertaining to self-improvement and ways to work from anywhere. It has been so inspiring and helped me in such valuable ways – I’ve learned so much!
That said, I know I’m hardly an expert and I still have tons of growing and learning I still want to do. But the thing I realized about it is, if I share my . . . → Read More: A New Goal – It's Not Just About Me
