Habits

life coaching, colouryourdream,purpose, goal, dream, habits

How are you doing so far with reaching your goals in 2015? Have you gone back to your old habits already? Do you think: “Why should I bother….?”

I realized that some people have problems moving forward, because they have bad habits and they don’t overcome these habits.

If you just live your life like you used to, what happens? Some people are very driven, but some people are not, they don’t take “action steps” in their life, they are discouraged and tired and think: what can I do, how can I make things work, how can I change?

It is very important that young people have good role models and that they “accumulate” good habits in their first half of life.

It seems, in fact, as though the second half of a man’s life is made up of nothing but the habits he has accumulated during the first half.”

-Fyodor Dostoevsky

Have you accumulated good habits in your first half of your life? Which are good habits? Which are bad habits? Which habits do you want to keep? Which habits do you want to get rid of? When do you want to get rid of these habits? How do you want to get rid of some habits? Who can help you?

It is a blessing if you grew up in a good family where you saw your parents having good and healthy habits.

It takes a lot of effort to form new habits at a certain age, but its possible! The question is: how determined are you to change bad habits?

Think of one habit which you want to get rid of in 2015. How will you achieve this? What will help you? Who will help you? 

Start today living a healthier life in all areas of your life: family, work, community, self and start accumulating good habits!

??? Tell me one or two good habits that you have??? And if you like – which habit do you want to get rid of???

life coaching,colouryourdream,purpose,life,photography,city,emotional intelligence

Do you sometimes or often or always avoid difficult people or situations? Why?

What could you do different next time in order to grow in Emotional Intelligence?

Here is one tip:

Do not avoid difficult people or inevitably tough situations. Make the choice to use your EQ (=Emotional Intelligence Quotient) skills to move forward by watching your emotions and making decisions about how to manage them. Observe the other person too, share your preferences, and move forward with reasonable expectations.“

??? Who is a difficult person for you or what situations are difficult for you? What feelings do you have when coming across difficult people or situations? What helps you to not avoid these people or situations???

(Quote: Emotional Intelligence 2.0, Strategy #58)

passion.”

-Simon Sinek-

 

??? What is your passion? What do you love doing? What motivates you? What stresses you out?

       For what do you work hard???

Inner power

Three weeks ago I moved basically to the other end of the world. While packing some personal things, I found a little notebook with some notes I made a few years ago. I wrote down some points which I read in a book* and I came to the conclusion to keep this notebook. Because the author points out some interesting things I think it’s worth sharing here on the blog.

Why are some people stronger than others?

Inner power, inner strength makes all the difference in those who are secure. Secure in their social interactions with others – secure within themselves.“

Jane Lind says that power means being filled up and a lack of power is emtiness and having no strength.

Inner power comes from feeling loved. Those who have been filled with the power of love are powerful and have little need to struggle for power.Without inner power, there can be no inner peace.

The more powerless we feel, the more we will struggle. And the more we struggle, the less we will have peace within. Whether the problem is a struggle within ourselves (e.g. problem with weight) or whether the problem is an exchange with another person.“

The author tells a story about a guy: „One would never know from looking at him on the outside that anything was wrong. I don’t understand why I have always felt something was missing. Although Tom’s parents had given him everything he could want in material, they had not given him the inner power that only comes from being loved. Tom went along trying to earn, trying to earn love, trying to be filled up.

On the other hand Jane Lind describes a girl/ woman who experienced following:

Maria grew up in a poor section. She had to resist drugs and crime and worked long hours after school. She had never known her father. Maria was born to a teenage mother. But Maria had inner peace. Maria was happy, cheerful, warm and loving. Maria was given consistent love and acceptance by her mother. Maria was powerful.

We start our life as empty vessels. We need to be charged like a battery. We can be charged with positive power or negative power or a mixture of both.

If we are not filled with positive power as a child or do not find, later in life, a person who loves us enough to fill us with the inner power of love and/ or do not experience the love of God through Christ, then we may feel empty or we may fill ourselves with negative power.

Love is positive power. Without love, we feel powerless, empty of power.

We need God’s love, but we also need love from others. We each, individuallyneed to receive love from at least one other human being.

Unless this love is received, it will not help. Love may be there, being offered, but often, because someone doesn’t feel worthy and/ or cannot believe that anyone would love him or her, and therefore is not open to accepting this love, it will not be received. There are those with personality problems, emotional and mental illness, who put up barriers to receiving love, even that which comes from God. There are those who have built up a defence and let not anyone love them.

Whether we are powerful or not, award titles and money do not make a lasting impression in terms of inner peace and strength. After attaining these, we very often still feel power empty.

Someone, not something, must give us love. Objects and positions alone are not enough to make us powerful.“

My notes end here and I forgot, if I put the book in my boxes I sent to my new home, or if I left the book behind.

When I think of the many people I met all over the world, I think it’s true what Jane Lind is saying in her book.

???Think about people you know or think about your own life. What did you experience? Do you think that the thoughts are valid?

* Book: Powerdigm, Jane Lind (1998)
