One easy way to heal yourself is through service to others. Helping people and add value to their lives assists you to evolve by removing yourself from your current situation.
Stepping away to see yourself in a different light allows you to empathise with yourself to truly see the real reasons and feelings driving you down a certain path.
It is human nature for all behaviours to be driven by what is highest on one’s list of values. This is natural and should be encouraged as one’s passion can lead them to the fulfilment of their destiny.
However, when behaviours are more negative than positive then you should reassess the hierarchy of what’s most and least important to you. In this life you were born with everything to gain. Success is your birthright and so your actions should be aligned with this notion in order to keep moving forward.
We are all born with the gift of intuition. The inner knowing that you feel in your gut serves as a guide to direct you towards your destiny.
Each person you meet, obstacle you encounter and choice you make serves it’s purpose by playing it’s role in the evolution of your consciousness. If you are ever stuck, not knowing what direction to take your life that is your answer. You came here for personal growth and to accomplish tasks that are unique to your soul’s progression. There is nothing good or bad, it is all just learning.
So when you don’t know which way to turn, go in the direction of your heart. It will lead you to where you are meant to be.
Spending time in nature grounds your vibration. Do it as often as you can.
Trust your dreams. The inner nudge you feel that constantly draws you back down a certain path to pursue particular interests is guiding you to your destiny. So in this instance, always listen to your heart, because the steps you take will lead you in the right direction. Have courage to move past any doubts or setbacks, as every experience you have gone through in your life leading up to now has prepared you to take on a new level of greatness and have the most amazing memories you have ever had. Believe that the best is yet to come.
Some of you may be wondering why I haven’t been posting as regularly. Well the truth is I have been busy preparing for my first figure competition.
This is something I am extremely excited about. I am 26 years old and I have been lifting weights consistently since I was 14. I am absolutely, 100% passionate about bodybuilding. I feel that it is one of the most fulfilling journeys you can ever take yourself on. I believe that your inner reserve of strength and perseverance that you encounter along the way is amazing and once you uncover your real, mental strength you feel empowered to achieve anything you want in life.
My comp prep has been easy for a few reasons. I love this sport and I feel extremely fortunate that I have the opportunity to participate in it on a daily basis. I have been eating extremely clean for many consistent months and years. My 12 years of old school weight training mean I have a lot of muscle mass so my main concern is just balancing out my physique and stripping fat. I only surround myself physically and mentally with people who lift me up, not put me down. And lastly, I want this more than anything.
One place I find inspiration is on Robby Robinson’s Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/RobbyRobinson.TheBlackPrince?fref=ts . Robby is an extremely nice guy, has a wealth of knowledge and all his life’s work is a real legacy to the sport. A few weeks ago he posted this quote, ‘Faith sees the invisible, believes the impossible and receives the incredible’. I immediately placed that message as a background on my phone and used it as a reminder to keep going and persisting, regardless of what I saw in the mirror. More to this, I received his book, The Black Prince: My Life in Bodybuilding: Muscle vs. Hustle (which you can find on his website http://www.robbyrobinson.net/books.php) and I will post a review once I have read it.
In the meantime, I am remaining disciplined and focused on my ultimate goal and dream. My wish is that you feel just as determined and gain the courage to really chase after what it is you want.
So below is a picture of me four weeks out from my first figure competition taken 3 days ago. I have already noticed more changes since I took this which just goes to show, you can achieve anything as you try your hardest, visualise and just keep going!
The only person you have to be better than is the one you were yesterday. If you stay determined and keep climbing the ladder of personal success you will surpass all your expectations. That is how you get to the next level.
‘I may not be there today, but I am closer than where I was yesterday’
Do you remind yourself of this on a daily basis? If you don’t, maybe it is time you do. One reason people simply give up while on the road to success is not seeing immediate change or receiving instant gratification.
What you need to remember is success will not happen overnight. Success is the total sum of daily, cumulative efforts, applied with the power of intent. This means applying focused energy that will bring you closer to have better abilities at performing tasks and making better choices that will only benefit you and bring you success.
In terms of transforming your body each time you look in the mirror and you do not see a big difference remember, ‘I may not be there today, but I am closer than where I was yesterday’. Daily efforts will establish routine and positive habits that imperative for ultimate fat loss and better health.
In order to evolve you must practise positive self-talk on a daily basis so use this affirmation each day, undoubtedly believe in yourself and just watch everything fall into place.
One of the best things about being alive is the ability to achieve. Expect the best from yourself, set the bar high and watch how good you will be.
The secret to luminous, glowing skin is eating fats. Consuming lots of organic fats like coconut oil and butter throughout the day is the road to radiant, beautiful skin.
One way to avoid pre-mature ageing is by steering clear of sugar and other toxic, processed foods. My love of chocolate has decreased dramatically since I learnt that sugar causes wrinkles by attaching to collagen fibres and breaking them.
Organic coconut oil and cold-pressed nut oils such as macadamia oil are a great face mask to wear overnight. Manuka honey mixed with organic, full fat cream leaves your skin amazingly nourished, smooth and stunning.
