Positive Distractions

What are Positive Distractions?

I’m not sure if positive distractions is the scientific term, however as a former Buddhist monk I’ve been using these for many years and they really do work.

A positive distraction is something we can use or do to change our mood from a negative, sluggish mood into a more positive and energised attitude. Your own personal mood boosters if you like.

There are a few simple tasks and exercises that we can do to collect together some of these personal mood boosters. These then become our tools to battle when any negativity or dwellings on the past that arises in our minds.

I’m going to share Two with You Today!

This first task is all about realising you have more good happening in your life than bad. Unfortunately sometimes as humans we have the tendency to focus to much on the one or two problems we have in our lives, becoming consumed by these thoughts. We forget to look at the bigger picture and neglect to notice all the good we already have in our lives.

The One Bad Apple

Story demonstrates this point very well.

Finding the 7 Wonders in Your Life

Finding the 7 Wonders of your life will start to shift your perspective from those negative thoughts to focusing more on the positive we already have in our lives. Once this little task is completed we have our very first little tool to combat negativity.

Now let’s create an army of these tools so negativity has no chance to linger longer than needed in our minds.

The second Positive Distraction

There is a scientific rule discovered by Abraham Hicks called the 17 second rule. This means that if we bombard the mind with 17 seconds worth of positivity it has the ability to gather it own momentum and produce further thoughts of the same.

The 20 Second Meditation is using this same scientific approach and turning it into a meditation. For 20 seconds we saying positive things towards ourselves out loud and with passion. Really mean what your saying even if it feels a little alien at first. This is for just 20 seconds so keep going and after a few more moments you start to feel the belief that was your saying to yourself is true. Keep it up for 20 seconds and the mind has shifted into a positive state. It will also have momentum and start to generate its own positivity.

The 20 Second Meditation

A word of caution; even if your depressed this will change your mood, even if for a moment, the momentum will be there but it’s like pushing something heavy up a hill it will need a constant boost of energy now and again to get that momentum from stoping.

What is the Secret to Life?

The art of life or the secret to life is to just breath and let go!


That’s it a simple as that!


Let me explain:


If you and me attach too, hold onto all those emotions and thoughts running through our minds, we suffer


The way out of suffering is simply not to hold on, just watch. Don’t attach to those angry thoughts, those self pity thought, just breath and be!


To achieve this ending of suffering, just breath and watch each moment as it arises and passes, arises and passes. Become present in the moment.


Meditation helps us learn this vital skill to just breath and let go, never holding onto that which causes us to suffer.


Just breath and be! Let go and watch each moment come and go like the tide in an ocean! Come and go!

The 20 Second Meditation

I’ve got another little trick called the 20 Second meditation that I would like to share with you quickly today.

The reason why this is called The 20 Second Meditation is because a meditation is a one pointed concentration on something, generally we focus on our breath. The 20 Second Meditation however is a focus on positivity and similar to that of a mantra meditation.

There is no need to sit crossed legged on the floor, or with your eyes closed I do this walking in the countryside or taking a shower or simply wandering down the street.

Scientifically Based

When in negativity, science tells us that 17 seconds of continuous positivity changes our thought patterns and generates more positivity on its own.

How do I start

For the first time you do this 20 Second Meditation find somewhere quiet and private.

Now For 20 seconds I want you to tell yourself how amazing you are. And I want you to do this out loud, doing this exercise out loud works better than quietly in your mind. I want you to Just keep praising yourself, tell yourself how proud you are of yourself, how wonderful, how amazing, how great, and do it with passion.

Keep going for the full 20 seconds, and you will see the shift inside yourself. Keep going with praise of kindness and positivity for that full 20 Seconds.

Just 20 seconds

At first it feels a little hard and strange but keep going for just 20 seconds and you will feel the shift inside yourself

It’s a bit like pushing a car, the first bit requires effort to get the car rolling, but once moving it will keep rolling for a bit all on its own. Just like your mind, effort to start the shift keep the momentum up for 20 seconds and you can stop. Your mind will keep rolling for a bit with positivity. We have changed our negativity mindset into a positive in just 20 seconds.

I do hope you have fun with this little exercise, and if you follow this website it’s just another tool for you to combat any negativity that may arise.

Kind regards

The answer to all your problems

How to end your suffering

I have a beautiful task for you this weekend or the coming week ahead, that I think your going to enjoy immensely. This is going to show you the true reality of Yourself, and free you from suffering.

Are you with me?

If you are suffering from a lack of self belief, self confidence, low self esteem, depression, anxiety or stress then this task will show you a life changing miracle. I’m going to show you that you are not suffering from the process of life.

What you are really suffering from are your memories and imaginations, your intelligence of your mind if you like.

Your problem is one of your memories and imagination, you suffer because of memories from 1, 5, or even 10 years ago and your imaginations of what and how life should be.

With Just 3 Questions I Can Unlock the Limiting Beliefs holding you back. I Will Motivate & Inspire You Into Achieving Your Dreams and Goals

Why is this?

Your body is constantly in harmony with life, and the energy of this earth, your body is continuously part of the universe, breathing in the air, processing the food we consume all perfectly in balance and in harmony with nature. And your not trying to control your body to do any of these things, it just happens naturally.

The same conditions apply to your mind. It’s a little thought factory processing and making thoughts from the input of your 5 senses. Our problems arise because we are always trying to interfere, trying to control. We don’t want the negative but want the positive. We have not learnt to let go and just let things be. We control it by trying to hold onto, grasp or attach to what we want and equally what we don’t want. We completely forget that this process of the mind is in complete harmony with the universe. This is the natural process of our consciousness.

And this is what I am going to try and get you to experience. To have a direct learning experience with, clearly seeing and understanding how those thoughts, memories and imaginations of past and future events and experiences are not really you. Just the natural process of your consciousness.

Once we have this direct experience, seeing clearly this process of mind and dance of consciousness that we have no control over, we naturally put a small distance there. We no longer attach we just let it be.

Your mission if you choose to except it

So this weekend or the week ahead, find the time to get deeply immersed in nature, walk, sit and observe. I want you to explore the structure of a leaf, why does that stone or rock look the way it does? how does that ant move it’s body? I want you to contemplate the immense world around you and see how we can never fully grasp nature in its full entirety, but how we can see this same perfect harmony and its entirety within us.

the solution to your problems, personal development through mindfulness, Dhamma Tapasa, 4enlightenment, developing minds, changing thought patterns, why do I suffer in life, how to overcome disorders, teach me some wisdom, a direct learning experience, former Buddhist monk explains,

I’m going to try and get you to see clearly how we can never understand the full entirety of nature, and how this mind is part of this exact same process of nature and in perfect harmony with it.

It has taken billions of years for evolution to create a mind this large, and we are suffering because none of us have bothered to read the operators manual (admittedly we were never given one when we arrived) 😂. We don’t suffer life, life is perfection, we only suffer our mind. It may seem like we suffer life because we become so preoccupied with our own thoughts, it can indeed seem like we suffer life, but life is just that, LIFE. And life is a miracle and so are you a true miracle of life.

This is going to be a wonderful task for you, I know you love nature a lot and I also know your feeling a little down at the moment. So no matter what, go and spend some time in one of your favourite places, nature. Look at everything around you and see how your body and consciousness are part of this nature. Your thoughts are as natural as the trees growing from the soil or the water flowing over the rocks. And our body and mind are one with this harmony.

If I can get you to look deeply into this, and see clearly this process, naturally we put a little distance between us and our thoughts! This will bring so much comfort and relief. We begin to not take those thoughts so seriously and this natural distance is formed.

This doesn’t mean we abandon our minds, no we detach ourselves from the process, after all it’s a never ending affair of thought after thought. We naturally rest our legs and arms when were not using them, so why not let your mind rest, it will be there when we need it.

So go out to the forests, fields and wild places, contemplate this process of the world around you. Enjoy the warming embrace as you discover the truths I’ve shared for yourself. Go immerse yourself in nature. Go get lost and only then can you find your true self.

How do we contemplate this wonder of life?

Go out and get lost in the wild forests fields or mountains around your area, examine the stones and rocks, the grass and trees. Close your eyes and watch yourself breathing, your heart beat, look at the first thought that comes in without judgement, where does it go? Did it disappear? or merge into the next thought? See the relationship of your body and nature, isn’t it the trees that breath in the carbon dioxide we breath out and then give us the oxygen for us to breath. Life is this symbiotic, a perfectly balanced world and so are you, you just need to see your thoughts aren’t you, just this process of nature.

the solution to your problems, personal development through mindfulness, Dhamma Tapasa, 4enlightenment, developing minds, changing thought patterns, why do I suffer in life, how to overcome disorders, teach me some wisdom, a direct learning experience, former Buddhist monk explains,

Ask yourself, am I, my thoughts right now? Can you truly say that this thought is me, mine or I? Can you see how every thought has the ripple effect to create another. Is this you? Or is it the natural process of nature? And can we truly grasp this nature in its entirety?

What this exercise is trying to achieve is a slight distancing from our thoughts.

This is what I’m trying to achieve for you, even if it’s for just a moment, that is all that’s required to truly see the reality of your existence. Just one moment of not attaching to your memories or imagination and you are free! Even if it’s for one moment, this is all you will need to see the truth in reality.

If you keep going down the same path

What happens when you keep taking the same path in life? A path that has kept you feeling, depressed, stressed, angry, anxious and with a lack of self belief and confidence.

It’s exactly like this analogy, If I were to give you a mango to hold in your hand, the first minute or two the weight of the mango doesn’t effect us. If you kept holding the mango for an hour, your arm is going to ache and start to feel soar. If you were to hold that mango for an entire day, your arm is going to feel paralysed. And the weight of the mango, which hasn’t changed, now feels a heavy burden.

This is the same with those negative thoughts. Thinking of your past bad memories for a moment isn’t going to effect us much, holding onto the negative for an hour and our mind starts to ache. A whole day and we can become paralysed by the weight now on our shoulders.

So I want to show you your true reality so you clearly see your perfect existence in this universe, a perfect symbiotic existence that we ourselves interfere with and try to control.

Imagine for a moment your stuck in heavy traffic going to work. How stressful it feels, right. Now imagine seeing the same traffic from above where you can’t hear the hooting of car horns, you just look at the traffic and it’s looks rather nice, no stress is there.

the solution to your problems, personal development through mindfulness, Dhamma Tapasa, 4enlightenment, developing minds, changing thought patterns, why do I suffer in life, how to overcome disorders, teach me some wisdom, a direct learning experience, former Buddhist monk explains,

So this weekend go out and free yourself, see for yourself the truth I tell. For this leads to a liberation of mind, body and soul.

I wish you much success over this weekend my noble warrior, for you are one of the true hero’s of earth.

Much happiness and kind regards

Strategies For Success & Change

How you make change

Life and motivational coaching is all about you feeling empowered to make the right choices so that you can move forward in life with optimism, enthusiasm and a feeling of more confidence.

So how do we know what choice to make and how do we implement these new choices into our lives?

You need a strategy

For any successful change to be made we need a strategy. I would like to discuss the word strategy as an analogy or simile if you will. A strategy isn’t a frightening word and should be considered to be like a road map. We know where we are, point A, and if we know where we want to go, point B, then all we do is follow the clearly defined roads to get there, the strategy. It doesn’t matter what or where you want to be, there will be a route, a way, a path that has been trodden many times before, giving you something to follow.

As I’m sure you are aware if we look at a road map we will see not just one road, or approach to our destination but many possibilities for you to choose. In our analogy of the road map as our strategies, all these different roads are all the many different life coaching and motivational techniques you have at our disposal. There are many such techniques to help us learn and reevaluate our lives and there isn’t one approach fits all type of style. Some of the exercises you may find a little to wishy washy for your taste, others however will resonate with you and motivate you to succeed.

The technique shared today is powerful and takes real courage, the results however will speak for themselves. The results from this exercises can identify possible limiting belief systems that might be holding you back from achieving what you desire. So stick with it.

Understanding your Value Systems.

A value system is a personal thing, no two people hold the exact same values, yes we have many similarities and share many common values and morals with others. As an example of how individual our value systems are, I would like to use the extreme yet simple example of killing. I think that you can agree with me that No killing is a good value to hold and not matter how you sugar coat it, to kill is wrong. However what maybe your and my values others may not share. And even the value of No Killing can been seen with many eyes in as many different ways. It seems ok for humans to kill animals and this is justified because we need food, however a vegan would wholeheartedly disagree. And it seems fair game to swat a pesky mosquito or fly that irritates us, yet to some this is still seen as killing and taking a life. As you can see each and everyone of us holds values personal to ourselves, and of course these can change as we grow older.

As your reading this do have any idea of some of your values that you hold dear to yourself? Perhaps you’ve never really given it much thought before?

So first of all what is a Value System?

A value system can be described as our own inner compass, a compass that judges what we believe to be morally right or wrong, good or bad and wether it is acceptable or not. We all know the feeling of compromising our values, when we say, do or even think in conflict with this personal value system it makes us feel bad, guilty and upset. On the other hand we also know what it feels like when we do, say or even think something in align with our core value system, it makes us feel positive, happy and leaves us feeling good about ourselves.

Your value system should be personal to you, and not because of what the media or society say you should have as a value, it is your personal view so there is no wrong answer. Your values can be emotional, mental, physical or even spiritual in nature.

By now I’m sure you can think of thousands of values, big ones as well as all those tiny little ones you have. What I want you to focus on is certain values you place on certain areas and aspects of your life. So we are going to be focusing on just five main categories in your life. What are your values with your Friends, family & loved ones? What are your financial values? What spiritual Values do you hold? What sort of values do you place on your health and fitness? and finally what are your work values?

Here are some examples of certain values within these five categories, just so you get an idea of the values we hold. Notice how all the questions start with “I Believe” this is a great way to get our minds thinking on the right track. If you also start “I Believe” then after a couple of statements just let your thoughts take over. Remember this is personal to you so there is never a wrong answer.

What are your values with your Friends, Family and Loved ones?

I believe in unconditional love for my family. I believe in mutual respect between partners. I believe it is my job to keep the family together.

What are your financial values?

I believe all rich people are idiots. I believe if I had lots of money I’d be happier. I believe Money is easy to come by. I believe finances frighten me. I believe I’m not very good with money.

What spiritual values do you hold?

I believe in a god. I believe what the Buddha taught. I believe all spirituality is airy fairy and for hippies. I believe in Karma and what goes around comes around. I believe in treating others the way you want to be treated.

What sort of values do you place on your health and fitness?

I believe in keeping a balanced diet. I believe in looking after my body with plentiful exercise. I believe I don’t eat well. I believe my body is a temple.

What Work values do you have?

I believe work to be just that, work. I believe work should be a fulfilling activity. I believe creativity should be high on the agenda for the work I do. I believe money is the most important aspect of my work. I believe in doing something that makes a difference for a job. I believe work is just for money.

Taking Action

Before you take a piece of paper and pencil to write some of your values running through your head right now. I want to make one point very clear. You are looking for your values that you hold dear to you. This is Not about what you think would be a good value, or a value you want to work towards in the future. This about the values you hold dear now. The reasons for this will become perfectly clear latter and trust me you will get far more benefit doing it this way around. So to clarify this all important point, we are looking for what you believe not what you should believe or want. What you believe Now!

Now grab a sheet of paper and pencil and write down the five categories leaving enough space in between for your answers. To remind you again of the categories I want you to focus on are: What Values do you Have for Your Friends, Family and Loved Ones? What are Your Financial Values? What Spiritual Values do you hold? What Values do you place on your Health and Fitness? And what values do you have for Work?

Now let’s have a look at your answers

Analysing your results

Before we examine your results, if you have actually done the exercise, I’m sure you are starting to see some of those limiting beliefs that you may have. The financial values questions always throws ups some interesting and sometimes some deeply ingrained core beliefs and values that defiantly hold you back.

Now we have the answers for the five fundamental categories, let’s take a look at them in a little more detail. If you have been truthful in your answers above, the results will be worth so much more than if you have been a little shy of that truth. A quick way to find out how truthful and accurate you have been with your answers is to add a percentage to each of those answers in turn. To get that percentage figure, ask yourself, truthfully, how much do I truly believe in this value? If the answers 10% that’s fine, if it’s 70% that’s also fine. As always there is no wrong answer with this exercise. Generally speaking the higher the number the more it means to you.

Once we have our list with our percentages along side, we can now really start to break it down and analyse it fully. You may be easily starting to recognise areas in our life where perhaps you need to improve. There maybe certain aspects you want to change and you may be beginning to see how certain values and core beliefs might be holding you back.

Now because this is a really deep and truly personal choice too what values you hold most dear, there are a million and one answers, and as such some of the examples I use below may align with your values, however some will not. If you find a strong disagreement arise inside you when reading some of the examples, ask yourself, does this apply to me?

With Just 3 Questions I Can Unlock the Limiting Beliefs holding you back. I Will Motivate & Inspire You Into Achieving Your Dreams and Goals

Some of the limiting beliefs you may have

Values around Family, Friends & Loved Ones

I believe Family are the only ones that matter. This is too much emphasis one one group and will always end in disappointment. Friends are as equally important, sometimes more so. Especially if we have one or two really close ones. And sometimes family can be the ones that are holding us back.

I believe love is hard to come by. Love is something you freely give, how long that takes is entirely up to you. What has happened to make you feel this way? Has that happened every time or was it just the once? Love can be as easy as you want to make it, the choice is yours.

I believe it is my job to keep the family together. This can cause immense amounts of suffering and a very stressful value to have. It is no ones job to keep a family together, every family I have ever met has issues and problems. Including my own. And to take on the role as task master isn’t going to win any favours with anyone, unfortunately it only comes with abuse and no thanks. Ask yourself what would happen if I were to maybe drop my input so much?

Your Financial Values

I believe all rich people are idiots. There maybe a lot of idiots with money but there are also a lot of kindhearted ones as well. The choice is yours

I believe if I had lots of money I’d be happier. Happiness comes from within and not through a bank balance. Rich people have rich persons suffering and poor people have poor persons suffering. A middle of the road bank balance is way better.

I believe finances frighten me. There are plenty of courses to learn that are friendly and aimed at people like yourself. There is no need to be scared.

I believe I’m not very good with money. This is a very limiting factor. Ask yourself Why? What is it that makes you keep spending again and again?

Your Spiritual Values

I believe all spirituality is airy fairy and for hippies. Not all

Motivational and life coaches won’t help me one bit. Well if your reading this, then it means you are absorbed by what is being discussed and nodding along with it. If not you would have switched off a long time ago.

Most people are fakes who believe in this spirituality. There are many fakes around in life, everyone of us though is doing our best. No one spends their time on this planet deliberately trying to mess their life up. Everyone is trying to make the best choice for themselves and there families, those choices are made from the accumulated knowledge pass on or learnt. None of us are perfect. But then that would become boring.

Your Health & Fitness

I believe I can eat what I want. A balanced diet will look after your mind and body far better.

I believe fitness is something you have only when your young. I’ve known marathon runners that only started when they retired. I also remember a lady that climbed mountains in her 80,s Now that’s also not my thing, the secret is finding something fun that you enjoy doing, then the fitness naturally comes without feeling like it’s a strain or fitness plan.

Eating all this wholewheat stuff is only for hippies. Her it seems the hippies get there first most of the time. Wholewheat food are good for your heart and colestreall and if that alone should be enough to start eating them. We are all getting older. A healthy body a healthy mind.

Your Work Values

I believe work to be just that, work. Where’s the satisfaction in that? We are filled will so many choices today that it is difficult to know what career to choose. However if this is your belief then doing the same thing day in day out to pay for a mortgage and your kids wellbeing is going to cause major depression at some point. Life must have a focus, a real meaning and purpose for us to be happy, content and peaceful people.

I believe work is just for the money. Again the same advice is given as for the above belief. Work needs to be more than just money, it’s something we all have to do for a long time, if enjoyment can be found happiness will follow.

I believe my job sucks. Like a lot of people, perhaps you fell into your job and have sort of got stuck. What is it you want to eat doing? What would fulfil you? Maybe you have a mortgage and there is no way things will change. Impermanence is a law in life, all things change then change again. Everything is in a state of movement, never rule anything out. Change can happen at any age we just need the right determination.

Conclusion

The most important thing to understand with life coaching or motivational advice is that YOU have to do the actual work. I can show all the techniques and motivational advice I know, each one will help in some way or another. It is YOU however that must do the work, you must fill in the questions, with your answers. YOU must grab a piece of paper and pencil and ask those tricky questions.

Every successful person I have ever met has always had strategies to propel themselves forward. Every leading business man or successful leader looks constantly at there lives to make sure they are heading in the overall desired direction.

Nothing in this life comes without having to make some effort, when it comes to improving your life the more you put in, the more the rewards there will be, trust me I know from personal experience. And doing the hard work now pays dividends in the future.

The little Boy who was Cursed to Breath fire

A Motivational Moral Story

One day not so long ago there lived a very angry little boy. Everything in life and everything about life made him angry. The more angry he became the more frustrated he became and the more frustrated he became well that just made him more angry.

He began to hurt the people around him who loved him the most. With each new insult and angry outburst he was hurting those that cared. He wasn’t seeing the consequences of his anger. He couldn’t understand that his actions were causing others pain and hurt, he was too consumed by his own rage to even notice.

After a particularly bad outburst his mother had sent him to walk in the woods and think about things until he had calmed down. It was on this day, walking in the woods, that he met a witch that was about to change his life for the better.

The witch was out collecting her herbs and spices for potions and magical spells when she heard the little boy. He was cursing and kicking stones, making an awful racket as he went.

The little boy cursing and kicking sticks as he went, was so engrossed with his emotion of anger he didn’t see the witch until he was standing right in front of her.

“Who are you!” He angrily muttered “your in my way!”

“I’m a witch capable of turning you into a frog or making your tongue talk like a parrot, maybe I turn you into a mouse or something worse. so I would drop the attitude” replied the wise witch

“Well your in my way!” Barked the angry boy “and you smell”

“Your an angry little man” replied the witch “I think you might need to be taught a lesson”

“Oh shut up and get out my way” angrily demanded the little boy

“I did warn you”

And with a great flash of light and a kinda whooshing sound the witch threw one of her most powerful spells she had for years, it seemed this angrily little boy was about to be taught a lesson.

“There, it is done! You have been cursed, now every time you find yourself angry and about to hurl insults and abuse you will blow fire like a dragon”

And with this the Wise witch walked away leaving the little boy feeling a little dazed and slightly confused.

When the boy finally arrived back home his mood of anger had passed and he was feeling a lot more calmer. He’d forgotten about the witch and the curse and was feeling happier.

It was around the evening dinner table that he started to loose his temper. Just as his father had poised on his fork a particularly nice looking potato ready to pop in his mouth the little boy burst into anger. As the little boy opened his mouth ready to curse, suddenly, just as the witch had said, a burst of flames as impressive as any dragon came raging out of his mouth instantly turning the potato on his father’s fork to crumbly dust.

Shocked and surprised the boy quickly put his hands over his mouth to spare anymore carnage. His anger had now been replaced by horror and surprise as to the damage he had just caused.

That evening as the little boy was told it was bed time, anger reared it’s ugly head once more. Once again the instant the little boy opened his mouth to vent his rage a massive burst of flames came shooting out. The walls were scorched black and the television taking a direct hit was left melted and deformed.

Our little boy went to bed that evening thinking for the first time in his life, how his anger was having a direct effect on those around him.

Over the course of the next few weeks, little by little our boy started to see first hand how ever time he was angry or had an angry outburst the flames raged from his mouth burning everything to a crisp as it went, hurting and harming those around him.

The other town folk were now becoming afraid of the little boy who was now famous for blowing flames every time he was angry and as so would try to avoid any direct contact with him.

Our poor little boy was becoming very sad and lonely indeed.

However this curse the wise witch had bestowed upon our little angry boy was turning out to be a very clever curse indeed.

As more time passed the little boy was slowly beginning to control his angry outbursts.

Gradually over time his anger became less and less. At first he managed to control his anger for a day, then he could managed two days in a row, then three, and four then an entire week went by without the little boy becoming angry in the slightest way.

And as our little boy began to control his anger a fantastic transformation was also unfolding. He was also beginning to become calmer and happier person. The other town folk could also see the wonderful new change in our little boy and so they had started to include him once again. This was just the encouragement the little boy need to finally rid himself of the old wise witches curse.

With a massive concerted effort and intense control our little boy expelled the last remaining flakes of anger left in his body, he had truly conquered his curse of blowing fire and in doing so had also mastered his anger.

His curse was lifted!

Our little boy decided to leave some of the destruction and scorch marks his anger had created. A reminder as how a quick small outburst of anger can cause far longer lasting damage.
