Never underestimate the power of making peace with your past!

Never underestimate the power of making peace with your past

“Life is short. Play hard.” We’ve heard this before.

When you’re carrying around emotional baggage, it hurts!
Emotional baggage is all the pain, the hurts, the blame and shame, disappointments and frustrations you have accumulated over the period of your life.

  • It hurts you more than the other person
  • It stops you from playing the biggest game of your life!
  • It keeps you stuck, unfulfilled and going round in circles… until you finally had enough and decide to make a fresh start, a new beginning.

But if you haven’t made peace with your past, nothing really changes. The faces and places may change but the `dramas’ stay the same. Sometimes they get even worse!

There’s a saying… “Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die…

You can replace the word `anger’ with pain, hurts, fear, frustration, depression, stress and any other negative emotions.

Then there are the judgments! Judgments that people have made on you and those that you have made on other people. How would you like to live a life without judgments?

Just google `judgments’ (sometimes spelt with an e) and this is just one of the findings:

If this resonates with you, please stop drinking the fatal Kool-Aid and get help to release the pain from your past.

A self-aware person can do anything!

Making peace with your past, making peace with yourself cannot be under-estimated.

When you look into the mirror, do you like what you see?

A self-aware person knows themselves. They’ve taken time to examine their lives, to release emotional baggage, to check their beliefs to see if there are any negative or self limiting beliefs holding them back and to do any necessary fine-tuning to help them get to the next stage of their lives.

A self-aware person makes good decisions to move on, to release and let go, so that they can step confidently into the future of their own choosing instead of being stuck or trapped in the past of `same old, same old’…

Sometimes it helps to have another person to coach them and to hold them accountable to their new goals. They may get help to release and let go of emotional baggage.  Also, it can be easier to `unload’ to a stranger who knows nothing about you and who can be objective. Having someone to listen to you and support you through each stage of the recovery process is something which you need to experience for yourself to understand how invaluable it is.

During Jack Canfield’s Breakthrough To Success program which I attended in August 2013 in Tucson, Arizona, he gave us `homework’ to do everyday of the 5-day event. One of which was to `talk’ to ourselves in the mirror. Some people actually found it incredibly hard to do, as they have lost touch with themselves, found it hard to even look at their reflection in the mirror and to look at the eyes staring back at them.

Please contact me if you would like to make peace with your past, with yourself.

A self-aware person is really the master of yourself! It’s incredibly powerful! Please give yourself the gift of your own personal power.

Stop hiding from yourself and the incredible contribution that you are to the world!

Are you addicted to pain and suffering?

The title of this post may sound weird but think about it…

Could it be possible, that you have become addicted to pain and suffering?

It’s not your fault. This may have happened gradually until you became accustomed to the P&S setting which is like the thermostat for your body to ensure that you are neither too hot or cold for comfort.

It’s like the story of the frog in the saucepan and the heat is being turned up slowly.  The frog did not notice at first that it was getting hotter. It was simply just a `little’ warmer than usual… then a little warmer until the frog is just about cooked!

Just look at your life for some clues…

Do you have any areas of your life where there are some issues or problems?

  • Relationships: dramas with your ex-partners or significant other
  • Family: toxic family members who pick on you and criticise whatever you do
  • Financial: (not enough) money problems or you make good money but problem is keeping the money. You just seem to give it away!
  • Work/Career: unemployed or if you’ve got a job you don’t feel happy or fulfilled
  • Business: problems with cash flow, staff, trouble making ends meet
  • Health – physical: asthma, chronic fatigue, headaches, migraines, stress, weight
  • Health – mental: anxiety, anger, fear, pain, frustration, depression
  • Past issues: relationship (ex-partners) to work (ex bosses, managers or colleagues)

Or things may be okay but you feel that something is missing. You feel that there should be more to life than what your life is about. You wonder what is your life purpose should be…

If you definitely know that there is something missing and you are fed up of getting no where and you’re willing to do whatever it takes to change this, please contact me. I can help.

Time is a currency that everyone gets at the start of the day. Once you’ve spent your day, you can’t get it back. Use it wisely. Otherwise, five years from now, you could be no further ahead.

Look back at your life, say five years ago. And now. Compare the two. Has anything changed significantly for the better? If not, let’s change this.

Time is also money. Stop sabotaging yourself and take action to create your Dream Life and find new opportunities that excite you! Like attracts like. If you don’t change how you attract things, you will keep attracting the same things and people to you as before.

Learn how to make peace with your life. It’s liberating!

You can FINALLY put down all that `baggage’ that you’ve been carrying around with you for years! I can teach you many ways to release them plus have a few laughs as you do it! 🙂




Guardians of the Galaxy: A Bunch of Losers?

I saw this Amazing movie last Saturday and it made a big impact on me.

Then I saw a post on LinkedIn about being a loser, down on your luck and picking yourself up from the bottom…

I was inspired to write about how Guardians of the Galaxy has given a new meaning to the word `loser’.

Normally negative. By all means, it wouldn’t be a compliment to be called a loser.

But Guardians changed all this. People are proudly calling themselves `@Spacelosers’ on Twitter!

Peter Quill (played by Chris Pratt) also called `legendary outlaw Star-Lord’ (mostly by himself), turned to his bunch of followers and said, “I look around and you know what I see?” Pregnant pause. “Losers…”

Oops! If someone had said that to you, you’d probably get mad!

Luckily he continued and explained. “I mean, people who have lost stuff, homes, families…”
Catch the rest on my LinkedIn article below.

#StarLord, Thank you! You’re Legend!
People are proud to `lose’ their baggage and reinvent themselves!
