Laughter Yoga

This past Sunday was World Laughter Day! For a change on my personal self-help journey, I decided to dedicate this post to Laughter Yoga!

If you’re looking for a way to brighten your day, feel happier, and handle stressful situations better, then laughter yoga is your ticket!

Laughter yoga was founded in India by Dr. Madan Kataria. The major discovery of this practice is that fake laughter works just as well as real laughter in increasing your serotonin and dopamine levels. It’s a wonderful thing to try out and I highly recommend locating a certified laughter yoga instructor in your area.

So, if you’re wondering what it looks like, I made a mini video ūüėČ

Until next time!

Mystery of Sex Transmutation

Chapter 10 from Napoleon Hill’s¬†Think & Grow Rich is the¬†Mystery of Sex Transmutation

What does that mean? Well.. I went with a video blog this week to address the topic. ¬†It’s actually surprising that a book published in the 1930s would have a chapter dedicated to such a “taboo” topic.

Here’s a couple of quotes from this chapter:

..the scientific inventor, or “genius,” begins an invention by organizing and combining the known ideas or principles accumulated through experience, through the synthetic faculty (the reasoning faculty). If he finds this accumulated knowledge to be insufficient for the completion of his invention, he then draws upon the sources of knowledge available to him through his creative faculty. The method by which he does this varies with the individual, but this is the sum and substance of his procedure:
1. He stimulates his mind os that it vibrates on a higher-than-average plane, using one or more of the ten mind stimulants or some other stimulant of his choice.
2. He concentrates upon the known factors (the finished part) of his invention, and creates in his mind a perfect picture of unknown factors ( the unfinished part) of the invention. He holds this picture in mind until it has been taken over by the subconscious mind, then relaxes by clearing his mind of all through, and waits for his answer to “flash” into his mind.

-Napoleon Hill, Think & Grow Rich

Just for a handy written reference, the 10 things that can stimulate higher thought vibrations are:

    The desire for sex expression.
    Love.
    A burning desire for fame, power, or financial gain.
    Music.
    Friendship between either those of the same sex or those of the opposite sex.
    A Master Mind alliance based upon the harmony of two or more people who ally themselves for spiritual or temporal advancement.
    Autosuggestion.
    Fear.
    Narcotics and alcohol.

Major take-aways from this chapter would be ..

HARNESS YOUR SEXUAL ENERGY FOR CREATIVE GENIUS


And now- personal self-help update:

The property I had under contract a while ago didn’t close. Meaning, the deal fell through. However! I was able to secure a part time- work from home job that pays me enough to cover my bills, and give me the time I need to devote to financial freedom and spiritual growth.

I came across a picture today that aligns with spiritual growth:

Think

Something that I struggled a lot with at my last job, was knowing I was lying to people ūüė¶ They had us tip toe around topics with customers, but in the end I knew the answer they wanted but couldn’t tell them. Yes, lots of people work in jobs that bend their morals, but it’s all made up.

EVERYTHING IS MADE UP.

It is simple to be happy, and that’s what my goal. The self-imposed need to be at a job I disagreed with was made up. So I quit. Was it worth it? OH YEAHHHH.

Until next time!

Power of the Master Mind

Moving forward in this Self Help Challenge, this chapter is the 9th step to accumulating riches.

Rather than go into too much detail, I made a mini video. ūüôā

Quote of the week from Napoleon Hill’s¬†Think & Grow Rich

Poverty may, and generally does, voluntarily take the place of riches. ¬†When riches take the place of poverty, the change is usually brought about through well-conceived and carefully executed PLANS. ¬†Poverty needs no plan. ¬†It needs no one to aid it, because it is bold and ruthless. Riches are shy and timid. ¬†They have to be “attracted.”

Persistence

Persistence

The 8th step towards Riches

-According to Napoleon Hill in Think & Grow Rich

On this self help journey, this step is CRUCIAL. ¬†I decided this week to make a mini video update. ¬†Along with that update here’s a list to help check your persistence!

Persistence is a state of mind, therefore it can be cultivated.  Like all states of mind, persistence is based upon definite causes, among them these:

  • Definiteness of purpose. Knowing what one wants in the first and perhaps the most important step toward the development of persistence. ¬†A strong motive forces one to surmount many difficulties.
  • Desire. ¬†It is comparatively easy to acquire and to maintain persistence in pursuing the object of intense desire.
  • Self-reliance. ¬†Belief in one’s ability to carry out a plan encourages one to follow the plan¬†through¬†with persistence. ¬†(Self-reliance can be developed through the principle described in the chapter on autosuggestion.)
  • Definiteness of plans. ¬†Organized plans, even though they may be weak and entirely impractical, encourage persistence.
  • Accurate knowledge. ¬†Knowing that one’s plans are sound, based upon experience or observation, encourages persistence; “guessing” instead of “knowing” destroys persistence.
  • Cooperation. Sympathy ,understanding, and harmonious cooperation with others tend to develop persistence.
  • Willpower. The habit of concentrating one’s thoughts upon the building of plans for the attainment of a definite purpose leads to persistence.
  • Habit. Persistence is the direct result of habit. The mind absorbs and becomes a part of the daily experiences upon which it feeds. ¬†Fear, the worse of all enemies, can be effectively cured by¬†forced repetition of acts of courage. ¬†Everyone who has seen active service in war knows this.
