Do All You Can Each Day…

Do all that could be done each day… do all that could be done each day… do all that could be done each day… spending time watching TV, scrolling through Facebook, Instagram prevents you from reaching your goals. If your not taking advantage of all available time during the day your leaving potential gains on the table. Which means you are not reaching your full potential.

To get extreme results you have to take extreme action. Extreme results doesn’t come from mediocre actions. Mediocre actions will guarantee mediocre results. If you want extreme results you have to take extreme actions… but I have school, I have work, I have kids… Enough!!! Maybe you don’t want it as bad as you thought, maybe you should just give up… but just don’t hate on anyone else who is going for what they want.

Don’t complain when you see others getting extreme results if your only putting in mediocre effort. Especially if your not working as hard as them, how could you expect to have the same results. Does this make you jealous, you should be inspired by their success. These guys are obsessed with thier results. Be insane, go for your goal at top speed, at 100 miles per hour, going all out, kicking in the door, taking no prisoners…

You know how you could mess it up, by wasting time, life is short, real short. You could be here today and gone tomorrow, or worst, end up in the hospital, on your death bed thinking about all the things you could have accomplished. When all your dreams come to visit you on your death bed, what till they say about you as a they slowly die with you?

New year new me…

Have you set your New Years goals yet? A new year tends to unhide the reset button for most allowing them to move forward with a fresh start. But what is to prevent them from relapsing and quiting too soon, discipline, motivation, willpower, fear of failure?

Most people tend to fail because they quit to soon, or set their goals to low and hit. Relying on motivation can sometimes lead to quitting to soon because the moment you lose motivation you stop. I feel motivation is like a feeling that comes and goes like the tide. This could lead to working on goals whenever you get the feeling.

I feel the secret might be to avoid motivation, and to focus on building habits. The first time you start, it might be tough, like jumping into a cold shower, yea it’s uncomfortable, and you want to jump out. On the second day, it’s still uncomfortable but it’s not as bad as the first day. By the time time you reach the 10th day, your probably indifferent. After a month, and when you skip a cold shower it starts to feel weird because it’s now the norm…

Stressed Out?

Stressed 01

“Your either coming from a problem, going into a problem, or in a problem…”

A few years ago, I used to find my self extremely stressed out to the point where I couldn’t fall asleep. Worrying about things that I might need to do, or something that might go wrong.

Other times I would just feel bad about things that happened in the past, not keeping my word, letting people down, or failing an exam. One of the worst things that stressed me out was my job. Having a feeling of knowing that you could be laid off at any moment.

Other times I just worry about my family. My mom and dad especially because I want to be able to take care of them as they get older.

Stressed 02

Over time I picked up a few techniques to deal with stress:

  1. Mediating for 20 minutes a day.
  2. Breathing exercises where I would breathe in slowly and deeply through my mouth, hold it for a few seconds and slowly breath out.

Meditation is great for calming the random chatter in my head, while breathing exercises help with anxiety and stress.

I am not really a religious person, but I take what resonates with me from each religion. Ideally, I try to stay present, while feeling deep love and interconnectedness with everything, and accept that everything that arises passes away.

One state I have been trying to reach is not identifying with anything that is not me, I truly believe this is the road to enlightenment, but I will leave this for another blog.

Sometimes you may feel like things are falling apart around you, you may not be happy, but you can be at peace with it.

Sometimes watching others push the bounty can inspire us to try things that are out of comfort out zone. One of the thing that’s striking about these photos is the glare from the gloss. It’s subtle, but it seems to bring them alive.

The rainbow of colors below reminds of a galaxy, with the white streaks of patches in the sky. It’s always a good idea to try different styles, you never know how it might work out.

FLII Dual Ring Light

img_1928

Photo by: @kristinaurribarres

Most ring lights tend to give off cold light, which can give you blueish look. The Dual selfie ring light gives you the best of both worlds. It has both warm and cold LED’s that can be controlled independently.

2019-04-110 - Dual Final4CC__11538.1498419083

The light clips on to anything that is up to 3/4″, it has a front facing mirror, and it’s rechargeable. It usually lasts about two hours at full brightness but can last even longer when it’s set low.

Instead of buttons, this ring light uses dials to control the brightness. So you can vary the light exactly how you want.

Check out the youtube video here by K3Chocolate: Video

One of the cons here is that you always have to recharge it, and it’s not as bright or as large as some other ring lights because they are about 3.5 inches.

In summary, these lights offer both warm and cold lighting at an affordable price compared to the larger ring lights at $80 to $100 plus.

On Goals….

2019-04-08 Life

Listing to Tony Robbin’s yesterday at the gym, he is a great motivational speaker who inspired others, but to be honest, I never liked his book. I did, however, like to listen to his YouTube videos,”Attitude is Everything“. In this video, he spoke a lot about rituals…

This reminded me of building habits. I think a lot of people rely on motivation, but “motivation never lasts” as Tony would say. I truly believe this… it’s easier to fall into a routine whether it’s good or bad. You might have a goal that you are working on, maybe it’s to lose weight or to gain muscle or pass an exam. The first day you might hate it because life can be full of unexpected hurdles and speedbumps, but if you keep going, after one month, it starts to become a habit or the norm, and it’s easier to do what’s the norm than it is to find motivation.

You tend to be the average of the 5 closest people you hang around so it might be a good idea to surround yourself with people who have similar goals. While they are trying to accomplish their goals, they might unintentionally inspire you to work on or harder at your goals after seeing the success they achieved.
