Three Unstoppable Forces

There really are three unstoppable forces in this world. Few would argue that the rising sun and a rushing ocean wave are overwhelming forces of nature that are impossible to stop or defeat.

Yet, add the power of your mind to the equation and many will quickly object. They point out all the times people supposedly had a determined mind and things didn’t pan out. In the simplest way of describing a determined mind, that may be true.

I wanted the promotion. I was determined to get it and I didn’t. I really wanted to go out with that person, but they turned me down. See, a determined mind is easily defeated,

Here’s my definition of a determined mind. It’s a mind that doesn’t let temporary setbacks decide the outcome. It’s a mind that takes whatever comes and turns it into fuel for the big goal. It’s a mind that never gives up and is going to find a way or make a way no matter what.

That kind of mind cannot be stopped. That kind of mind is a force of nature like the sun and the wave. That kind of mind turns defeats into fuel for bigger victories. That kind of mind learns from every experience and is better next time.

You, yes you, have that force-of-nature mind within you any time you want to unleash it to chase your dreams, better your day, or better your world.

The sooner you realize how powerful it is, the sooner you will become unstoppable and unbeatable too.

Wherever you are on your journey today, you are awesome!

Skepticism and “Magical Thinking”

You know, skepticism can become a religion too. Doubt can become a comforting drug. When they become your default setting they limit your life in every way from the start.

Some seriously believe that expanding your thinking beyond what can be seen and measured is “magical thinking.”

Yeah. It is. It’s the kind of magic that opens new possibilities in a life and kicks down new doors for a civilization.

A skeptic feels at home in things that can be proven. That’s a comfortable place to live when virtually every proven was once a radical idea, disavowed as magical thinking by the skeptics of its day. Thankfully, it was believed in by one or a few crazy people with enough creativity and ingenuity to see beyond what was proven in that moment and enough courage dare the status quo.

Skepticism has a place in our thinking, but as a life philosophy it’s an uncreative, unmitigated failed mindset. It’s constant fear is being wrong or being tricked by nefarious data. So what? I’ll take being wrong 10 times as the cost of achieving one BIG dream or one betterment for human civilization.

I’ll take a magical thinker seven days a week and twice on Sunday. As for me, I aspire to be a better one.

Wherever you are on journey today, you are awesome..,even magically so.

Let Your Affirmations Be More Than Just Words

Affirmations are a powerful tool for putting your mind on your side. However, if they’re used without passion, purpose, or repetition, they can just become powerless, meaningless words.

In fact, done right, they are powerful oaths to yourself and the universe that clearly set your intention, put energy behind your actions, and put the power of belief to work for you.

Here are six tips to make sure your affirmations stay sharp and empowering.

  • Use words that have meaning and power to you.
  • Always use the present tense when creating affirmations.
  • Focus on three to five affirmation topics at a time. More affirmations are fine when you’re listening to them and they supportive same goals.
  • Affirmations are working when your affirmations come into your mind as an answer to the limiting thoughts you’re trying to replace.
  • Use affirmations you’re bought into. Try incremental and aspirational affirmations as appropriate to your belief level.
  • Change affirmations if they become stale or stop resonating with you.

Follow these simple guidelines and affirmations can become a workhorse in your personal development, recovery, or big dreams.

Wherever you are on your journey today, remember you are awesome!
