Feeling Alone & Being Motivated

Lost: unable to find one’s way; not knowing one’s whereabouts.

Alone: having no one else present; on one’s own. Without others’ help or participation; single-handed.

Any loss is a form of death. The essence of something is now absent. Maybe a friendship ended or your dog ran away. Maybe you lost your job. Maybe your relationship ended. Maybe someone close to you actually passed away. The identity with this thing leaves us stuck and alone. Wandering and deserted.

The man/woman you once or still love, is now walking alongside someone else. Someone else was hired in your old job. Your best friend has a new best friend.

As these things depart- you remain. Unloved. Feeling sustained inside your vacuum of emptiness. Through the death of these things you become lethargic and confused. The promiscuity of sorrow continues breeding further emotional torment. The byproduct of your devastation creates a missing self-identity that once brought you comfort.

The people you want or wanted in your life are simultaneously having their own life experience. Their concurrent experience simply intersects with yours for a time.  A seasonal conjunction. Everything is temporary and short-lived. Experiences must all come and go. To have died, something must have once lived.

A need for things is simply your own false perception.  Remove the blindfold of loneliness. You believe or feel entitled to believe, the act of desiring these things dictates their presence in your life.

Unknowingly, this confusion and isolation has always been present. Did you evolve in your mother’s womb with someone else? (To the antagonist, even twins are separate beings) Is anyone else experiencing your dreams? Can anyone beyond yourself feel the hot stove your hand rests on?

Alone. You have always been alone. You will always be alone. You have always been experiencing this so called life by yourself.

Those that cannot withstand the smoke, cannot withstand the day you set fire. Let them die. 

In the midst of your forfeiture, be cognizant that these inhabilitating emotions were handpicked. Chosen and selected by of course. . . none other than. .  .You!

Embrace your emptiness. Not being filled with these things; your vacant heart is symbolic for acceptance and peace. Let this revelation guide you to the comprehension of a new reality and restored life. You and your Creator- that relationship is sufficient.

*Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? – 1 Corinthians 3:16 

*But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. LUKE 5:16 AMP

Negative Self-Talk

Internal characterless statements expunge all validity of our progress.

  • I just want to be happy.
  • I want what’s best for you.
  • I hope things get better for me.

These crumbling phrases paralyze the human spirit. Consequently and unknowingly, creating a self-defeating vigor within your brittle mind.

You cannot afford to be ambiguous. The clock is still ticking – time is running out! You must speak clarity and conviction to your soul.

Engage Your Subconscious Mind

Write things down once your thoughts become meaningful or your goals become truth.  You must review them. Over and over. And over again- every single day!

The practice of writing things down is an accessory to a powerful mind. Psychologically this practice is proven to increase memory, minimize distractions, and sharpen the brain when you get older. Unload the burdens of your brain. Increase the potentiality.

If ever your emotions inaugurate feelings of defeat or surrender; your true self will override these impromptu notifications. Focus, concentration, and diligence will flow with ease. Contemplations suddenly are disciplined. Circumstances will be viewed from the mountain, not the trenches.

Suffering is the catalyst for growth! Be thankful for it and scream something positive to the bogeyman.

Give birth to a conviction within yourself to DO BETTER! 

You must apply discipline and consistency to achieve your goals. You have to plan everyday. Hard work . . . works!- Denzel Washington

 

Procrastination- The BLOODLESS COMPLACENCY

Procrastination: the act or habit of putting off or delaying; especially something requiring immediate attention. The act of willfully delaying the doing of something that should be done.

The hand of the diligent will rule, but the slack hand will be put to forced labor.– Proverbs 12:24
YOU SAID YOU WANTED: (allegedly)
  • A promotion. . . but won’t get to work on time. 
  • To get rich. . . but you’re in the bed.
  • To start a company. . . but you’re laying on the couch.
  • A healthy relationship. . . but you don’t want to listen to your spouse.
  • A clean home. . . you won’t do the dishes.
  • Your kids to do well in school. . . but you’re too tired to help them succeed.

You desire all these things, yet lack the willpower to produce a glimpse of effort. You could stop being lazy, but you’re too lazy to do it.
Only hard work yields riches. The display of dedication and being uncomfortable spawns accomplishment.
There is not a soul that accomplished their dreams being lethargic.  Never put off what you can do today. Convincing yourself you will do it tomorrow is what you said yesterday.
Nothing comes to a sleeper aside from a dream and flourishment belongs to the assiduous.
The only antidote for procrastination is action. 

“Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.” – Abraham Lincoln
“The man who moves a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.” – Confucius

MALNUTRITION:

Malnutrition– lack of adequate nutrition resulting from insufficient food, unbalanced diet, or lack of adequate nutrition from insufficient food, or defective assimilation.

Your mind and spirit have an appetite that needs to be acknowledged. Lack of sufficient food for your soul have detrimental effects. You must take care of them just as you do the body.

Anorexia effects the body just as wisdom does the mind and spirit; feed them daily.  

DIAMONDS:

Endurance: from Old French, from endurer ‘make hard’. Additional meaning- the fact or power of enduring an unpleasant or difficult process or situation without giving way.

Be mindful of how diamonds are created; intense heat, pressure, and endurance.

When life becomes difficult you must have the endurance to continue. Press on and pick your head up.

Finish fast or finish slow. Just finish. The pressure and pain are good for you. The obstacles are there shaping the paramount of your legacy.

It does not matter how slowly you go, so long as you do not stop. -Confucius

LION-HEARTED

Everyone wants to eat, but few are willing to hunt.

Fight and dominate obstacles or become a slave to them.  Everyone seems to have a plan for your life- that doesn’t mean the plan is yours. Step back and observe the surroundings in your jungle.

DO NOT:

  • Try and please everyone.
  • Fear obstacles or changes.
  • Live in the past.
  • Analyze too many details.
  • Speak negative about yourself.

You must acquire the conviction and tenacity to create a new reality for yourself.

Confidence will absorb your entirety after you affirm the belief in yourself. You will become a master of self; the beginning of being great.
