Time Management

Making peace with time

Time is huge. Why? Because everything happens within the time. There is past, present and future time. People can get easily caught up with time. If you are too much in the past, it’s not good. If you are too much in the future it is not good as well. All happens within the now.

Those that call themselves high achievers, like me, I think they struggle with time a lot.

If you want to learn about time and how to manage yourself in it, go to Udemy website, and find a course that suits you. Learn more about time management, strategies and tactics to get more stuff done. There is literally someone out there, who can help you finally find peace with time. So be helped, and sign up for some time management course.

People want a lot of things to get done in this century. If you are one of them, and it seems like there is no enough time for everything that you want to do, stick with me here, and I’ll help you with that, finally find a peace.

“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.” —Saint Francis de Sales Source

Make a peace with time

Straight to the point

It is overwhelming, I know, but if you decide to change your bed sheets, and it is time to do that, why would you think cooking?

We can’t do two things at the same time. One task at the time. Which one is more important?  Food or clean sheets? Food. Then do the food. Only after full belly, change your bed sheets, and then take a nap 😀

Be fully present in whatever you do. Think what you do. Watch what you do. Don’t think cooking while you doing your bed. We are not wired to multitask.

I will never forget when I heard Jim Rohn saying how when he was in the office, he was thinking beach with his kids, but when he was at the beach with his kids, he was thinking office. You see now how this is broken? Who does that? Only those that can’t be in the present moment and struggling with their values.

Time is the most valuable commodity

So precious that you are unable to buy more. Once lost, it can never be replenished. Time is also the commodity that is most often wasted by people. -Simon Sinek Source

Really see time as the most valuable commodity. You are never going to be able get back the time. Once used, it will never return, so use it wisely.

Are you big on time? Trying to make the most in time and you really want to be productive? Then continue to read carefully.

Let’s say you wake up hour and a half before you need to leave the house. You have an hour and half to get yourself ready for that task.

First determine and get clear on why you need to go there, what are you going to do, how you are going to do it, who else is going to be there, how long will last, what do you need to bring, and so on and so forth.

What is the next important thing I should be doing

Always ask yourself this question. What is important to me and how should I prepare myself for this place that I am going to.

Do I need to get a shower? Is it important? What should I wear? Is it convenient? …

First, get yourself all dressed up for example, and only then do the jewelry. When you go to the bathroom, do all the bathroom stuff.

If you are in the kitchen, do all the kitchen stuff. While you are waiting for water to boil, make yourself a breakfast, take a bite and prepare the food that you are going to bring with you.

Videos are best on that. Nothing can’t explain you better than the video, better than the written word. I hope video above will explain you better about the time, and how to make a peace with it.

Slowing down will also help you. Don’t do anything in the rush. Practice being in the present moment.

Let’s say you are cutting your vegetables for the dinner. Feel the water washing peppers. Watch how your hands go putting them on a cutting board, take knife, feel the cut… This is being in the present moment. We all think it’s only about cutting vegetables, but there are whole range of the preparations before that cutting act. I hope you get the point?!

You are already successful

Don’t be worry about time. Time is only illusion and we are only passengers.

It is really only about finding what is working for you, that’s all. For me, doing one task at a time really works, it makes me feel I have control over me and the time. It is really that simple.

Are you doing To-do lists?

To-do lists are bunch of ****. We are not machines. We are not meant to make endless lists of the things we need to get done. Luckily, I stopped making to-do lists long before. It made me feel terrible. Sometimes, I didn’t feel like doing some things, and I would usually postpone it, and then make another one, rewrite it, for the day after. Stop doing to-do lists and your are going to feel new born, happy, free and alive.

Did it helped you a little bit this post? Again, don’t worry, just relax. You can even chant yourself these words: “relax”, “relax”, “relax”, “trust” 😀

Conclusion:

The fact that you want to make the best out of time, you are already successful. Many people on this planet waste their time, you are not one them, and you are never going to be, so relax.

Do one task at the time. If you are washing your hands, then wash your hands, and from that point on, when you finish washing and drying your hands, you can ask yourself: “What is the next really important move?”

Love,

Maja.

Seeing perfection in everything

What is perfect for you? How do you see the things that are not seemingly perfect? Can something be amazingly perfect? What about all the things? Some of them?

We live in the world of the social media, and people post things that are seemingly perfect. Would you post a picture of yourself just coming out of bed, hair all around, make-up under your eyes, wrinkles on your face? Of course you wouldn’t! Because we are not looking presentable, and that is O.K. No one would do that!

Don’t take things too seriously or personally.

People are feeling bad for themselves, because they take things too seriously.

We don’t post things because we wan’t to show you how we are prettier than you, but because we feel good in our own skin, and we wan’t to show the world, inspire one another. Do you feel me here?

Not everybody has that intention, and that is also O.K. People have all sorts of intentions doing same things. Again, do not take things seriously. People in it’s core don’t wanna hurt you intentionally. They are in pain!

Seeing perfection in everything.

Let yourself be inspired by what you see.

There is perfection in feeling tired, being dirty, broke, single, exhausted…

You are tired for the reason, for example. Maybe you worked hard, and now you are feeling tired but satisfied. Being tired is a perfect state to go to have a rest. Aren’t you happy knowing that you are going to bed, have a good night sleep, cozy up in a warm and clean sheets. Is there any better feeling than being totally exhausted and going to bed? I don’t think so. You see, perfection in even being exhausted. Train yourself to see that.

Apply that to whatever you want, whatever is your situation. In being broke (studying finances), being single (leveling yourself up), dirty (reason more to enjoy shower)…

All is perfect as it is!

We are the beings of the movement.

We strive, grow and learn doing things, going places, working towards something.

Determine what is not working in your life but you want to improve upon. Make a list of the things you want to make it work in your favor. And then study it. Study it deeply! And start implementing learned as you go.

There was a saying from Jim Rohn, I think. It goes something like this: “If you study your chosen field for 5 years, only an hour a day, in 5 years you can become national expert in it.”

I believe that to be true, because the more I study my chosen fields, the more people come to me for an advice.

Have you heard of something called “divine order”?

The Divine Order was the belief that everything in the universe has a specific place and rank in order of their perceived importance and “spiritual” nature.

Everything is in it’s perfect order, everything.

We can’t create everything perfect tomorrow. For what we want to achieve, it takes time, and we have all the time in the world. Do you believe you have a time? I do! All the time in the world.

Beauty is in the eyes of beholder.
Beauty is in the eyes of beholder.

You are not alone in your troubles.

This sentence I saw when I was truly desperate and I needed change in my life.

Do you believe in signs? Watch this video where I talk about the signs that I had received.

Seeing perfection in everything doesn’t necessarily mean that we don’t wanna change, or that we accept for what really is, no. Being satisfied but eager for more, is the key. Be grateful for what it is, but wanting more. Life causes us to want.

Let’s say that you are going through some challenges in life at this moment. You have people challenges. With one particular woman or a man you had fight. How would you feel? Angry? Disappointed? Of course you would!

Why is that a good thing? Because all the things that we call negative or unwanted in our lives, causes us to want. You can’t experience high in it’s fullest if you weren’t been down. You can’t experience light in it’fullest, if you didn’t experience darkness.

Conclusion

Everything is as it supposed to be. I probably said that already few times, but it is. We strive for perfection, but that is far from the truth. Nothing is perfect in this world, not at the same time. There will always be something to work towards to.

People want to have that sense of accomplishment, and so they work so hard to make house clean, kids fed, husband satisfied, striving career… Can it all be perfect at the same time? No it can’t! And never will be.

We need to practice seeing perfection in everything. Do you really want to practice that? If not, what do you want to practice towards to?

Once you see something that you judge. Let’s say you judged your family member. Stop for a second, and ask yourself. Can she or him be the way I wan’t them to be? Of course not! And so, train yourself to see perfection in them. See him or her how they have a nice hair, they walk like a million dollar, or they have a beautiful smile. These are just examples.

The more you are going to practice seeing in them something positive, you are going to notice more and more positive stuff from them. Isn’t that fascinating?

I was practicing that with people I worked with. They all had different eating habits than me, they were gossiping, talking about fashion and makeup… I don’t talk about these things, but I find that very interesting in them to listen, and it was fun. Now when I think about them, I think how amazing those girls were, and they still are.

We can’t all be the same. Life is not created for parading people the same way, dressed the same, talk the same, no no.

Family, Relationships

Why family is important

Family is shelter, security, and first place to be. It is everything when you arrive to this planet. It is your cozy up place.

Not everybody has amazing family support, and I know that this might sound harsh to believe, but hey, what is perfect in this life.

“Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family: Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.” — Jane Howard

Everybody on this planet somebody raised up. Me raised up my parents, you might raised up your grandmother, aunt, or somebody third. That is not really important who, what matter is that they gave you shelter, food and support.

That doesn’t have to be grandiose love and support, but know that they gave you something. They gave you what they had.

Family is teaching you what to do and what not to do.

There are a lot personalities and characters in every and each one of us, belief systems, habits, etc. I know that you didn’t like something that your parents did, but know that they didn’t know better. They had the best intentions at all times, every time!

Family is everything
Family is everything

You learned what you are certainly going to implement in your own life and family life, and you learned what you are not going to take with you in your adult life.

All is happening for the reason.

If you still have your own family, whether you are a parent or a child, are you happy with what you have? Do you feel understood, appreciated and loved for who you really are?

If you do, I congratulate you, because this is a really beautiful thing, but if you don’t, know that you still have a chance to turn your family life around.

First step would be to really see what you have, who are your parents, and how do you feel beside them?

Second step would be to determine what you want to have in your family, how you interact with them, and how they make you feel? You can make a list of the things that you want to experience.

Third step would be work. Work on bettering your overall family relationships, for whoever you call your family member. Working on bettering yourself first, your communication, love, understanding, etc.

If you still don’t know how family life is important, read this article on 10 reasons why family life is crucial to live happy and fulfilled life. Hope you are going to love this article as much as I did.

1) Family introduces you to the new world when you arrive on earth.

2) Family helps us in our various developments like mental, social, physical, and emotional.

3) The Family is the one who demands less and gives us more as possible.

4) Family accepts us in all possible conditions whether good or bad.

5) Family brings out our personality more effectively.

6) Family is the backbone of one’s life that is the main supporting system of our body.

7) We cannot deny that family is the one who supports us financially also until we get a job.

8) We get recognition and name in society because of a family.

9) Every other member of the family has its own importance and value.

10) Family gives you wings to fly high in the sky to achieve your goal.

Your family member can be anyone

Whether a person is your blood or not, if you have a truly connection with this person, you can call him/her a family.

Our friends are also family. We spend so much time with them. Especially in the early days. We play, we fight, we have fun.

Family is also overrated. Unfortunately, many parents think that they can do to their children whatever they want, but that is far from the truth.

You don’t posses your children

You are the mentor and teacher to your children. And your job is to raise strong, confident, and ready for life kids. They are not here to work for you, they are not your slaves.

Please, don’t get me wrong. I am not saying that you are the one. I just wanted to mention that there are the families that work that way, and I think this is not healthy, for nobody.

If family is important to you, you’re going to make it work, if not (it’s on your second or third place of the importance) then you won’t do anything about that. Both are O.K.!

I will never forget the day when I realized that I was always praising my family, and saying how family is first, but I was miles away from them.

You are not doing any good being separated miles away from your family. Of course, for a short while, but certainly not for a longest.

There are lots of families separated from their mpthers and fathers, working in another countries, just because they have to earn money for bread and milk every day.

Kids are growing up separated at least for one of the parent and they cannot understand why. Do you want to live this kind of lifestyle? Me certainly not! This is not life, this is survival. I understand that they have to earn for the living, but hey, there are other options that they didn’t though of. And it is, there is always solution to everything, we just need to look for it, be resourceful.

Conclusion

Family is really important. It sets you up for the life.

Define what family means to you. What is like living in family? How do you feel? What do you do with them? Where do you go?

Define a term family for you and start living it. Act as if! Do whatever it takes to live the family life you really set yourself to be.

Good luck in that, because you can.

Spirituality

How beliefs affect behaviour

What you believe you can achieve you will. If you are not believing that you can achieve something, you won’t. It is that simple!

For example: you don’t believe you can find a partner of your dreams, and even, somebody like him or her, doesn’t even exist. You are not going to go to search for him or her anyway. What you believe you can, you will, if you don’t believe something you can, you won’t.

It is a rocket science, ha? It is not! It is the law of life. If you want to read about “The game of life and how to play it” purchase a book through this link. (not affiliate link)

“I can believe things that are true and things that aren’t true and I can believe things where nobody knows if they’re true or not.” Source

Example 2

Let’s say you wanted to be an entrepreneur for years, but somehow it happened that you always stayed working for somebody else. Why? Because you didn’t know how. You didn’t believe you can!

After a years of struggling for somebody else, you finally got courage to quit the jobs for good, and become full time entrepreneur. Why? Because you finally started to believe in yourself.

You can also build belief. Which belief you wan’t to build? Make a list of the beliefs you want to build and start working on them.

Story about wanting to be an entrepreneur for years, and finally becoming one of them is my story.

If you wan’t to hear how I finally quit my job, and became full time entrepreneur you can watch here:

Our subconscious core beliefs affects our behavior, our thoughts creates our emotions and emotions create the reality that we live in. Emotional healing guru

Example 3

Your mother is working in retail for years, and her boss doesn’t respect her. Her big passion is flowers and she want’s to quit her job and start flower business. One day she finally said goodbye to her boss, and she is jumping into unknown about growing flowers.

She is struggling for years to grow that business, but something always push her to not to stop, her belief that she can. This is the power of belief in herself, and ability to put this business on the healthy foot. And so she did.

She believed she could so she did.
She believed she could so she did.

What causes us to make decision in life?

We make decisions according to our ability to follow through, and beliefs that we can, passion for whatever that we want to accomplish in life.

Decisions must be made in life, because if you don’t, you are going to be tapping at the same place for years, feeling miserable, and nobody want’s that.

To make decisions in life, you need to first know what you want. Make a list of the things you really want, the life that you want to live, how do you want to feel, and so on.

Schedule some time for that. For example, set an alarm clock for an hour, prepare notebook and a pen, or piece of paper, and start to write. Really focus on the things you want to accomplish, and write them down immediately.

Do you need to believe in all your dreams?

No, not necessarily. Nobody believed in all that they started 100% and that is O.K. Your belief in the thing that you do is going to grow exponentially, it will grow over time. The more you are going to work on your project, the more you are going to develop belief in yourself that you actually can.

And belief will affect behavior.

The power of belief is amazing post that people loved. It is literally powerful. To believe in something that is serving us, or will serve us, things that we really want to achieve, is very powerful.

“You have to believe. Otherwise, it will never happen.”
― Neil Gaiman, Stardust

I invite you to really find the way to change your beliefs in order to achieve more in your life.

How you can do that?

First of, I found amazing course on udemy.com There is a course on that, can you believe it. People are teaching you how to change your core beliefs, beliefs that doesn’t serve you anymore, and beliefs that you want to change. Here is the course that you may want to attend. It is 1 hour on demand video, and 16 downloadable resources that will help you change your beliefs.

How I would do that?

Well:

  1. Make a list of the things in life you want to change or improve
  2. Briefly describe why you think these things doesn’t work for you
  3. Work on changing those beliefs that you can by researching how you can improve that area

You need to be able to see first in your minds eye

We don’t accomplish something that we believe we cannot do, and so, if we don’t see ourselves reaching that goal, we won’t go after that goal in the first place.

Whatever that you wan’t to achieve in your life, see yourself achieving that goal already.

Let?t say you want to be an author, see yourself writing, creating that content. See yourself creating front page of the book, finding publisher, a person that is going to correct the grammar, promote the book, customers buying it, sending you feedback about how you have helped them through your book, see all of that. It is crucial to become an author.

How you can do it?

whatever that you do, all throughout the day, see yourself in it, watch yourself smiling, being satisfied, enjoying life… See yourself thriving.

What do you think about that? How belief affect behavior? Does this Blog Post helped you realize how our belief systems are important in life? What it it that you want to achieve in this life, and how you are planning to do that?

Health

7 reasons why you might feel tired

  1. Not enough sleep

We need rest and recharge. Our body needs time to recover and re-energize. Try to sleep every night at the same time, or around the same time, so your body is going to used to waking up and going to sleep around the same time. Why, because it is going to be mess if you don”t do that. Every night you are going to go to sleep and waking up at the different times, and we don”t wanna that, we want consistency.

There was a time that I cut my sleep, wanting to get some things done, but hey, I was walking through this world sleepless, and I always looked very tired, I was super slow, my concentration was slow, and naturally, I was making a lot of mistakes.

Have you heard about silky pillow cases? Your hair cannot get tangled, but is smooth and silky, while you sleep. Just like right after brushing your hair when you wake up in the morning, and your skin even looking, without wrinkles and lines, looking hydrated. You can check pillow cases through this link. We selected the best one for you.

2. Not drinking enough water

If you want, do the experiment, I am not kidding. Try not to drink water for 3 days, and the fourth really see and feel what is going on with your body. 3 days is very little, comparing to someone who is not drinking water at all. So, if you are water drinker, 3 days would not be a problem for you too, I think.

Do this just for the sake of experiment. I”ve never done that. But I know how I feel if I don”t drink water for some time. I feel sluggish.

Pro tip from me, this is what I do: Take small 2dcl glass of water and drink it. When you go to pee, take another glass of water, and so on.

This prevents you from over drinking water, and bloated stomach. It will give you energy, all the toxins in your belly and system will be flushed out.

3. You feel burned out, exhausted, you feel like you want to escape from everybody

People are feeling burned our because they are always rushing somewhere. Are you one of them? I know I am! We need to slow down. Nobody is behind us and pushing us forward, but we do that to ourselves. We live in the world where people put to much pressure on themselves, always trying and wanting to achieve something. There is nothing wrong with that, but to what extent is enough? When to say stop, and do everything at the slow pace. Slowing down to the speed of life

4. Poor diet

Food is huge. If you consume processed, sugary, and fat food, you are going to feel exactly that. But if you eat live foods, full of enzymes, vitamins and minerals, you will feel amazing after each meal. Live, and full of energy.

Have you had any time in your life when you eat only certain amount of foods? I did! At one point in life, I craved only cheese puffs, and I was surviving only on them, for 2 or 3 months. I felt weak, unmotivated! That is what food do to your system. Garbage in-garbage out!

I am not saying that you should be avoiding certain foods, but you should be eating balanced foods, with all included, and 3 times a day. Most importantly, you should watch how you feel, and then according to that, take those necessary actions.

5. Drinking alcohol

Alcohol can drain your energy. Watch how you feel before, and after a pint of beer. Alcohol will drain your energy immensely.

I drink occasionally, and when I do, I could get a nap after that. It just slows me down, and I am not awake and alert anymore.

Drinking alcohol might not affect you in your young years, but as you get older, your body will start to refuse some substances such alcohol, and you are not going to get that boost of energy anymore.

6. Spending too much time indoors

We are the beings of the movement. I will never stop saying that. Spending most of the time indoors, will not only make you feel tired, but also your mood will be down, you will feel down.

Air in our houses and apartments is everything but not fresh, we inhale dust and all that comes with it, no wonder we feel tired.

You need to burn your energy to get your energy back. Go outside and take a walk, go for a run, go to the nearest park, have a picnic. Do whatever it takes to get your body moving, I assure you, you are going to feel amazing.

There are countless of articles on why we might feel tired. This one is one of the best that I have found. I hope it will be of help to you, as you have there more reasons to your tiredness. It is good to get educated.

7. Get your digestion moving

Digestion is also closely related to how tired you are. We all feel much better after we visit toilet, we feel much lighter, and so get your digestion moving.

Why you can”t go to the toilet can be also many reasons: you eat dry foods, not drinking enough water, not moving your body…

To get your digestive system moving drink plenty of water, eat foods rich in fiber, do some exercises, go for a walk, run, ride a bike…

Conclusion:

First things first, you need to want to work on your well being and vitality. You need to love yourself and love life, in order to want more out of everything.

To know what is your particular problem, you need to educate yourself first on that. Read through this article first, and be really honest with what it is that you are not doing, or you are doing a lot of, or too much of.

Being honest with yourself is your first step to change.

We hope that you will feel energized after this article, and look after yourself even more, have a lot more energy!

Sincerely,

Maja!
