I found this list on my computer and sadly I have no idea who the creator is or wherefrom I’ve downloaded it and saved it. Anyhow it’s perfect. I love the internet you find so many like-minded, often I find things so on point of what I’m thinking it makes me feel unnecessary and repetitive in my own writing. I hope you can take these 4 statements below under reflection and adapt them to your reality. Have a wonderful start at the week!
So, the other day I got my 500th follower on this blog. A small thing like that makes me feel very honored. I try to check out as many of you followers blogs as I can and I will from now on highlight my every 500th follower.
My 500th follower is Joe Seeber. Of what I read, a dude I share many similar thoughts with. His blog is as much about self-development as how to develop and earn money from your blog. In fact he runs a great email platform where you can get good advice how to create an income online, check it out at: http://www.joeseeber.com/about-joe/
My favorite post of Joeseeber.com is about ‘the law of attraction’, you can read it at: http://www.joeseeber.com/is-the-law-of-attraction-real/ I’m in love with this post, I’m in love with the idea that I’m not the only one who thinks that thoughts are as real as anything else, and to take control of your life you need to take control of your thoughts. Thank you Joe for writing this! I’ll probably re-post it in the near future.
”I mostly read personal development books as l am on a strict regimen of always improving myself as a person and offering as much value to the world.
I go wherever my heart leads and I don’t think twice about it. I have this habit of once finding my calling, I becoming obsessed with it. I’ll follow it to wherever it may lead.” – Joe Seeber
Hi! I skipped yesterday’s Monday inspiration to take time to comment on this picture I was about to post:
– A flower does not think of competing with another flower, it just blooms. This quote, whoever wrote it, is so excellent. There was a time in my life when I was competing with others. When I felt that I had something to prove. There was a time when I felt uninspired to see others succeed, when I felt that it somehow would have a negative impact on my own success in life. I don’t know when this thinking took its drastic turn but I’m glad it did and I wonder how I ever have been thinking so wrong. Success isn’t limited, success is for everybody who believes it and aren’t afraid to pursuit it. Success is unique for everybody. Success is to be proud of yourself. Like flowers we humans should, and are so very able to bloom together, sadly somehow we believe that we should be ‘the rose that grew from concrete’. We live everyday like life was a competition, like there’s just a small crack in the concrete we have to compete for. In fact success is so much easier to achieve together then alone. In fact if the environment is good flowers bloom so easily, they don’t think about it, they don’t look at the other flowers and thinks ‘oh shit, now she bloomed so it means I can’t’, nope. They just bloom. They bloom together, together they emit seeds and create more blooming flowers. Okey enough with the flowers. To sum up, myths of Success:
- Success is limited
- Someone else’s success affects yours negatively
- Success is something we should achieve alone
If you want success, surround yourself with successful people. Encourage others, help others, support others to success. Recognize what success is, live in success everyday and recognize how easy it is to just… bloom.
I totally forgot yesterday’s post, so I’ll make up for it today. I’m busy moving around, exploring the world/finding my place in it so I’ve not taken the time writing a decent post lately. I will though. However this morning inspirational clichés will have to do. And frankly all these quotes is what keeps me going. Have a great day!
The internet is full of random stuff, funny stuff and sometimes really good stuff. I always save pictures or quotes or links that in some way inspire me or amuse me and I thought that from now on I’ll share them with you every Monday to get a nice start at the week. This ones for today:
What I know for sure is that I don’t know anything. That’s for me a pretty relaxing thought. I’m lost. It’s okey. It’s exciting. However I thought I should comment that I’ve decided to use my real name Isabella instead for my second name Jennifer. It just feels right, further explanation is otiose.
Reflect and speak up, that’s qualities I appreciate and respect in people. Muhammad Ali has them both. In this clip he highlights things that is really important that is brought to the surface. I admirer Muhammad Ali for recognizing that to get your point through you have to sell it. Here he’s selling it with humor. Good but sad that people laughs to such serious things. Or what do you think?
Small things are significant for me. Actually I’ll probably create something of the small things. My world is intense and I put huge meaning in most of the things. I may enlarge situations that’s really not that bad, in the same way find enormous delight in situations that’s not that great. I feel A LOT. Often I don’t even know why or what. That’s why I create. That’s the only way the feeling make sense for me. When you hear or see an artwork of mine don’t judge me. Don’t criticize me. What you see isn’t me. It’s my emotions or/and thoughts which been released into to that specific piece, so you understand, you could impossible judge me by the art. But you may be able to feel me.
