12 Things We Tell Ourselves That Are Completely False (365 Days of Spirited Living — DAY 343)


“We all talk to ourselves. A major key to success exists in what we say to ourselves, which helps to shape our attitude and mindset.”
— Darren Johnson

The biggest obstacles in our lives are the ones we create. Our thoughts and our internal voices are powerful. More powerful than we realize. It directs our behavior, our attitudes, our intentions, and even our interactions. Ultimately, it determines whether we regress or make progress, go up or come crashing down, fail or succeed.

At every point in life, it is much easier to give in to lies, false realities, fantasy thoughts, delusions, illusions and magical thinking. The truth is, we don’t have to really do anything for these types of thoughts to creep in. And if we leave the doorway of our lives unguarded and unchecked, false ideas will pour in, wreak havoc in our minds and keep us back from obtaining the life we always wanted. Read more…

Rumor Mill (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 308)


Proverbs 26:22 (NLT)
Rumors are dainty morsels that sink deep into one’s heart.

If we’re honest, we’ll admit that we like to be in the know. And most of the time, being “in the know” means being knowledgeable about people and their negative business. Gossip is such a big part of our society. Go to any grocery store or beauty shop and you are bound to find an array of gossip magazines that reveal nothing but the sadness and negativity that people go through. Read more…

3 Little Ways We Sabotage Ourselves (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 168)

3 Little Ways We Sabotage Ourselves

“And there’s also ‘To him that hath shall be given.’ After all, you must have a capacity to receive, or even omnipotence can’t give. Perhaps your own passion temporarily destroys the capacity.”
— C.S. Lewis

Many of us don’t get what we want — even things that have our names on it — because we are too busy resisting and rejecting. This is the simplest form of self-sabotage — not being open to anything, even good things. If you are to be blessed with anything, you have to at least have a hand open to receiving it. Our own vices set us back, hold us up, and stop us from embracing our ability to receive and sustain.  Read more…

(30 Things To Stop Spending Time On If You Want to Be Successful #13)

“The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.”
— Isaac Asimov

Everyone thinks, but not everyone thinks critically. Critical thinking is defined as the intellectual discipline of actively and skillfully evaluating, analyzing, and processing information before making it a belief or putting it into action. While we attempt to excel in every other aspect of life, excellence often slips our thought processes. Acting excellently must first be preceded by thinking excellently. This is where many of us fall short.  Read more…

3 Further Ways We Complicate Life (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 35)

3 Further Ways We Complicate Life

“‘No’ is a complete sentence.”
— Anne Lamott

Being busy — or “crazy busy” as Dr. Edward Hallowell would say — makes us feel significant. It makes us feel as though the world couldn’t revolve without us being there to make things go. Right? Well, that’s not always true. Many times, that’s in our heads, but not in reality. In this super busy life, we’re never bored, but always tired. We’re never unoccupied, but always fed up and irritated. And we complicate our lives by trying to cope with the mayhem and madness instead of letting it all go. Life as we know it has made us feel like we are supermen and superwomen, able and ready to do everything, go everywhere, and meet everyone even if our already jam-packed schedules don’t allow it. Everyone has a maximum capacity and we really need to learn to embrace it. When you hit your max, stop, sit down, and breathe.

Quit Looking For Excuses (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 20)

Quit Looking For Excuses

“He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.”
— Benjamin Franklin

There is no such thing as too tired, too hard, too late, too early, too easy, too much, too little or too old — those are just plain old excuses. These are little lies that people tell when they lack the mental fortitude, motivation, or will to do something. You can let the excitement and creativity of the world pass you by, or you can stop hiding from life and start living life.
