ENJOY LIFE – The Best Motivation Video 2017
The time to learn how to enjoy life is now, in the moment of whatever it is that you are trying to achieve. It starts as soon as you open up your eyes in the morning. As soon as you open up your eyes to greet the day, you enter into consciousness. It is at that moment your creativity is at it’s most powerful. Right then and there, you have an opportunity to steer your thoughts and your emotions in the direction that you want them to go. Not in the direction that they’re telling you to go. In other words you can literally choose to seize the day or you can let the day seize you.
As soon as you open up your eyes and start the day, immediately start focusing on something that you are totally grateful for in your life. I don’t care what it is or who it is but I want you to feel whatever it is with your heart and soul. You’re only goal as soon as you open up your eyes should be to make yourself feel good and give yourself enough confidence to get through the day. Don’t worry about what needs to be done. Think about who you have to be in order to get it done. You do this by focusing on all the things that you’re grateful for. Focus your mind on what’s working in your life rather than fixating on what isn’t working. Maybe you’re grateful for the person who’s laying next to you in bed at night. Maybe it’s a dog who’s been a loyal companion. Maybe you’re grateful for the birds singing outside your window. Maybe it’s the wonderful house you live in or the wonderful organization you work for. It doesn’t matter what it is. Just feel it with your heart and soul. Build your life from there and keep going!
Why should you to do this?
Gratitude is the most powerful connection you have to your higher self.
You always, always want to start your day connected to your highest self and when you do, life becomes easier. You don’t take things personally when you’re confronted with a challenge. You take it for what it’s worth… it’s a challenge, everybody’s confronted with challenge but you know there’s something within you that can meet the challenge and move forward as a result of it! Tell yourself “I’m going to enjoy life”. Say to yourself “I’m going to enjoy the day. This is going to be a good day.” Visualize how you want your life to be. Visualize yourself having fun with your fellow workers -the people who you are working for or if they’re working for you, it doesn’t matter. Visualize yourself achieving the goal and always, always find the laughter within you and around you everyday of your life. That should start in the morning before you leave the house.
There’s humor all around you. We get so caught up in our thought processes and what needs to be done, we let all the funny stuff in our lives just pass us by. Another thing that can put us in a great mood everyday is do something nice for somebody. There’s nothing that can bounce you back from a bad mood better than that all these things that I am telling you. They are giving you a different thought process — a different focus to look at life, a different perspective. Our lives move in the direction of our most dominant thoughts and what we focus on day in and day out. Not only do our lives move in the direction of what we focus on and what we think about but those very things that were thinking about and focused on are moving closer to us! In other words, the more you focus on your lack, the more of that you’re going to get back. When you start laughing at a negative, intense, stressful, overwhelming situation, your brain is no longer focusing on that negative situation. Your brain can only focus on one thing at a time. If you’re laughing, your brain is focusing on that — the ridiculous thing that just happened. Even if you’re brain does go back to that negative situation (which it will eventually will), guess what? It won’t be as overwhelming as it was before because you’ve calmed your nervous system down to the point where you control the situation instead of having that situation control you.
How to acquire the attitude that you need to succeed in all levels of life while enjoying the process.
Therein lies the key phrase my friends. While enjoying the process! That seems to be something that most of us leave by the wayside, especially when we’re setting out to achieve our goals. We want to accomplish something. We get so caught up that enjoying ourselves becomes secondary. I would wager any amount of money that for most people –when you’re writing out your plans and your goals for the future, nowhere on that list do you include learning how to enjoy life. Instead what we have a tendency to do is create these dangerous mindsets. What you’re doing when you say negative things to yourself… you’re literally putting your happiness on hold. You are actually convincing yourself that your happiness is dependent on something that has to take place at some point in the future. That’s insane! Do you want to know why it’s insane? Because happiness will always be a couple of steps ahead of you in the future. My friends, the time to enjoy life is now, in the moment of whatever it is that you are trying to achieve. Whether you’re cleaning the garage or raising a family or going to work. It is your right to enjoy life. In fact, every morning as soon as you wake up, create a healthy belief system and say to yourself “I’m going to enjoy this day”.
That’s not to say that you’re not going to be confronted with challenges and problems. Of course you are. But what I am saying is that you will be able to bounce back a lot faster from those challenges and problems because you’re arming yourself with the “bounce-back” factor. You’re starting your day with a healthy mindset. This is how you take control of your life. You determine whether you’re going to enjoy the day instead of outside circumstances! I don’t care who you are, I don’t care how much money you make, I don’t care how many things you own, the bottom line is this. If you are not happy… you are not successful. You need to understand and to utilize the power of choice –to work for you not against you.
You know you cannot stop life from throwing stuff at you — it’s impossible. You cannot stop the unexpected from interfering with your goals and your dreams. But you can always choose how to respond to these things. You can always choose the state of mind you want to be in. You need to understand that your entire life is based on the choices that you make and for every single choice you make, whether it’s consciously or unconsciously, there is a consequence. In fact, where you are at this point in your life is based on choices that you made in some point in the past. Those choices are the key factors that determine the quality of life that you have right now. Personally and professionally.
Now, if you don’t like the way your life is going on any level, it’s time for you to sit down to reflect and make different choices. As you’re doing that, and I can’t stress this enough, your sense of humor influences your sense of perspective. It’s a choice how we deal with all this stuff that life throws at us every day. When you are in the middle of a negative emotion of any kind, at some point you have to stop yourself and say, “Where is this going to take me?” If you don’t like the answer, know you have the power to change the outcome.
We go through the course of our lives and we let circumstances, situations, events and people to suck the energy right out of us because we don’t know we have a choice. We don’t know that we have tools that can turn this around. Humor is being your higher self. It is the part of you that brings out the best of you. When times get really tough, I can’t stress to you enough the importance of recognizing opportunities to laugh during the course of the day. It’s the key to happiness, especially when you’re confronted with challenging time and I understand this my friends.
I understand that sometimes our problems are so overwhelming that you just can’t find the laughter but understand this… happy people know they’re going to have sad days. Happy people know they’re going to have bad times. Happy people are not exempt from the trials and tribulations of life. But they all have this incredible way of shifting perspective. That is to say that they allow themselves to step away from the situations that are causing them pain or bringing them down and they immediately start focusing their attention on what’s working in their lives instead of concentrating on what isn’t working. They think about the things that life has given them instead of cursing the things that life has taken away from them. They all have this uncanny way of finding the laughter in between the pain. They don’t ignore the pain. They don’t run from the pain. They simply find the laughter in between the pain.
We all have the power to do this so that when you eventually do go back to situations that are causing you pain (which you inevitably will have to do) you will notice that it won’t be as overwhelming as it was before. Why? Because you’re connected to your higher self. You’re putting yourself in a position where you are in control of the situation. You’ve calmed your nervous system down to the point where you can take some kind of control. You know that you have the power to experience any challenge in your life from a healthier perspective. (Did you notice my choice of words?) I didn’t say some challenges. I said any challenge.
How you experience the challenge in your life my friends, are by the thoughts that you keep programming in your brain and day out. How to enjoy life is to understand and utilize the power of your thoughts to work for you not against you. Understand this. The thoughts that you have without any challenge in your life will ultimately determine the outcome. Thoughts will determine the quality of success and happiness that you will have in regards to that specific challenge. Contrary to what most people may think, it’s not the events that take place in our lives that determines the quality of our life. It’s the thoughts that we have about them!
Your thoughts about a challenging situation will either minimize or maximize the effect that challenge has on you. It’s not your thoughts in and of themselves that gives it great power. It’s what your thoughts create that gives it power. Your thoughts formulate the beliefs that you have about that challenge. Your beliefs don’t just come from nowhere. They come from constant programming from your thoughts. So if you’re constantly walking around with negative thinking patterns, you can bet your life… you can be certain… that those thoughts are going to create a destructive belief system. If there is anything that is going to keep you from being productive and successful in your life, it is 100% because of negative self-talk.
If you want to know why your energy is down when you’re starting the day, (it should be up) it’s because of negative self-talk. If you want to know why you’re having difficulty enjoying yourself during the process of whatever it is you’re trying to achieve, it’s because of negative self-talk. You literally have to stop and think about what you’re thinking during the course of the day because those thoughts are formulating your belief system all the time. How to enjoy life means having a healthy attitude. This gives you the ability to bounce back, to deal with the ratio of “no’s” that outweigh the “yeses” and the constant change that’s always taking place in our lives.
