Notes on how to live in the moment & be happy :O)
There is only one person who can make me happy… and that is me! Accept happiness as a state of mind that you can choose to take. Enjoy the journey towards your dreams. Mix with happy friends who support you personally and professionally. Smile! Laugh! Watch funny and uplifting films, and read funny and uplifting books. Celebrate – wherever you are in your life
Develop an Attitude of Gratitude
Keep a journal, a record of abundance and thankfulness. Pile gratitude on top of love. One part love, plus two parts gratefulness = peace
Honor your Highest Values
Give yourself easy rules to live by what is most important to you.
“If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally. If you want to take responsibility for your life, you must choose one of those three options, and you must choose now. Then accept the consequences. No excuses. No negativity. No psychic pollution. Keep your inner space clear.”
“See if you can catch yourself complaining in either speech or thought, about a situation you find yourself in, what other people do or say, your surroundings, your life situation, even the weather. To complain is always non-acceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge. When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation or accept it. All else is madness”.
Eckhart Tolle from his book ‘The Power of Now’
Live in the moment. Slow down and capture the detail. Enjoy the little things. Smell the roses. Be aware. Be present. Meditate & Relax
The Secret Method of Inviting Happiness Through Many Blessings
“Just for today, do not anger, do not worry, be humble. Be honest in your dealings with people. Be compassionate towards yourself and others” By the founder of Reiki, Mikao Usui
Love yourself. Hug your inner child. Be your own best friend. Mirror talk – compliment yourself, tell yourself that you love yourself. Do what you love doing.
“Self love is the energy required for loving another person, your family, your neighbour, your country, and your fellow human beings” Masaru Emoto
Love others. Be compassionate. Share. Be generous. Forgive – yourself and others. Letting go and forgiving someone doesn’t change the past – but changes the hold that it has over you.
“What you give in life is what you receive. To give love is to receive love. A mind full of love and good feelings can never go wrong” Sydney Banks
Live by Empowering Beliefs
Cultivate beliefs that make you stronger in mind and spirit. Dwell on beliefs that create a better world – care about something important
“If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it, even if I did not have the ability in the beginning”
Look for the positive in everything!
Read uplifting books. Think positive thoughts. Use positive language. Watch uplifting films. Go on motivational courses. Choose your friends carefully. Have positive thoughts. Be optimistic. Focus on the positive. Plan new experiences. Be creative.
“Always look for the beauty in life”
Alice Herz-Sommer (110-year-old holocaust survivor 1904 – 2014) See video clip click: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnoQ8F_CUfE
Have a Great Self-Image. Be true to yourself. ‘Cut the… poo’ (remember transformational vocabulary!). and let your authentic self shine through.
“Man is not what he thinks he is, but what he thinks, he is!” Emerson
Count your blessings and Curb envy

Refine Your Energy
Change your energy to attract more of what you want in life. The Law of Attraction works when nothing is resisting it. The Law of Attraction works when you come from a place of abundance. The Law of Attraction works when you have positive thoughts and emotions. The Law of Attraction works when you allow it to happen. Create positive energy from thoughts, words and beliefs. De-clutter and re-cycle to allow energy to flow freely. Thoughts become things. Like attracts like… be careful what you wish for!
“I attract into my life whatever I give my energy, focus and attention to – whether wanted or unwanted” Michael Losier
Visualize. Take action. Use confident language. See yourself as a confident person. Practice the posture of a confident person.
“I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence, but it comes from within. It is there all the time” Anna Freud
To yourself. Listen to wise words. Use positive words. Ask positive questions. Use affirmations and incantations. Talk positive words to yourself in the mirror – compliment yourself. Tame your gremlins… Control your inner voice.
Remember the power of words
“Kind words are the music of the world. They have a power which seems to be beyond natural causes, as if they were some angel’s song which had lost its way and come to earth.” Frederick William Faber
Keep in the Loop
Remember the cybernetic loop – the mind effects the body – the body effects the mind. Practice a happy confident posture. Have a healthy diet – you are what you eat. Learn how to keep your body healthy. Keep hydrated. Breathe from your belly. Take regular exercise. Meditate & remember to relax.
Always have something exciting to look forward to. Focus on happiness. Set inspiring goals that motivate you. Work towards your goals. State what you want. Write down what you want. Write down your goals. Mind map or list your goals. Make a treasure map. Focus on what you want. Keep peddling to stay on your bike!
“You are never to old to set another goal or dream another dream” C S Lewis
