Don’t Compare, Admire to Inspiration!

compare2As humans, we all have that instinct to compare ourselves to others and feel crappy about ourselves. Truth is, each of us is Unique and we should embrace that notion that we are not all the same, and we each hold a Special Compound that is US.

When you look at someone else, envy, compare, wish you were them.,.. stop and think, You are Unique, and with your good and bad qualities, you are an entity, you are your own person.

Admiration is beautiful, jealousy is not. Seeking a Role model is beautiful but bitterness is ugly.

I hope you woke up today, saw the sun, and thought to yourself:

I have been blessed with another day of life and I will appreciate it and grow better and stronger.

What I want from you to be aware of today is that we are all different and though sometimes someone else’s life seems better and healthier than ours, it really may not be. We are humans and we always want others to see what is socially correct and positive. Sometimes that may make you an optimist, other times it is because you want to hide your discontent with life and your lack of purpose and will to change it.

Don’t judge life by what you see, you really don’t know what goes on behind closed doors. So, focus on your inner peace and your outer joy. Be happy with what you have, and strive to trump what you do not have.

Something New?

5 Ways To Tell If You Need A Career Change, what a great article today.
A friend of mine inspired me to write this, she has been struck with a life decision that can change her whole entire life, but you know what, there is nothing wrong with being scared, it makes you human. Happiness, it is a big factor in your wellness and in your health, and you must always put that first.We have all been through troubled times where we doubt, we question, we need better answers….Do you need a career change? Are you happy with what you are doing? Are you depleted and over it?

I’m 36 and work in a mid-level corporate role.  I know I don’t like my work (and haven’t liked it for more than 5 years or so), and things are not going great at the company, but it pays very well, has good benefits and there are some things that are OK about it (mostly that it pays a regular paycheck that feels “secure”).  I was promoted recently too, but still I agonize daily whether I should change careers or just leave it alone and stick with it.  How can you tell if you should change careers or not? 

Should I stay or should I quit?
Here are five ways to tell if you NEED something new.
1. You are chronically worn out, exhausted and depleted: if you get home and your body is broken down and cannot think of doing anything else, you have depleted yourself to the point of exhaustion.
Your body tells you what your lips cannot.
2. Your skills, responsibilities, and tasks are not you at all: Do you care about what you are doing? Is it YOU? Do you have what you do, find it useless or worthless? Do you see yourself wanting to make a bigger difference? You may really be in the wrong field.
3. You’ve come to the point where your salary no longer makes up for the boredom and emptiness you feel: The money can make you *happy* for so long, but are you over it? Is material no longer satisfying you? Sometimes, making less money can make you much happier than making more, and you need to make that decision. Is the money keeping you stuck in your position?
Hang on here – I have this money, but I hate how I spend my life making it.
4. Despite all the “right” choices you made in your career, the outcome feels very wrong:  You have worked so hard to be where you are, but you HATE where you landed. Yes, that is so possible and you know, you need to be brave enough to acknowledge that. you need to know when what you believed was for you, is NOT YOU AT ALL, and that is totally fine. Life is not always what we seem it to be, and this is what life is all about, change, new, experience, learning.
5. You have the irrepressible feeling that your talents and abilities could/should be used in a totally different (more creative and impactful) way: If you are thinking, there is more to life than what you are doing, then there very much may be. Listen to your gut, don’t lie to yourself.
There’s another way to live and work, even though you can’t see it yet.
So, you have been given a quick glimpse of reality. Life, career, happiness, they all need to intertwine, you cannot be happy if you hate what you do 8 or more hours of your day. If you feel this article has given you an eye opener then maybe you needed one. Wake up, Make a Change. Life is too short to live it on a candle waiting to be burned out. You need fire, you need happiness, you need a good life, you only get it once.
I hope you have found yourself a little more today. Have a great Sunday!

Quote to Inspire

“Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family.” – Kofi Annan, http://www.bquot.es/s/2884

This quote always catches my mind. You must always be powerful… Do not stop searching for knowledge because without it… we have nothing. When you have information you feel like you can own your world and live free. Education, last but not least teaches you and helps you how to live. So keep seeking knowledge…. Always know information and keep educating yourself in this world because without these three you are nobody. Be somebody.

It’s Your Attitude!

They way you view life can alter everything about you. They say the way you see life makes the person you become well Why not look at your surroundings,  your experiences, and your feelings in a much better attitude. … Positivity is beyond ability.

Change the way you see life today and you might notice…. Life… It’s not that bad!

Quick quote before I send you off…

Be the Change You wish to See in the World   Mahatma Gandhi
