Unravel Joy: Negative Patterns

Unravel Joy: Negative Patterns

You have been conditioned to respond to phrases, people, and environments in particular ways. For example, the phrase “we need to talk” may elicit bad memories from your childhood. Crowded environments may cause you to feel stressed. You may feel uncomfortable around certain types of people and get upset without knowing why.

We all have different triggers, but the result is the same. We feel angry, sad, upset, or uncomfortable.

How can you counteract these responses? By creating positive conditioning.

What are some things you can do or think about that will give you a feeling of happiness?

For me, the answer is the mountains. I grew up in the western part of Canada, not too far away from the Rocky Mountains. I remember spending many summers there with my family and friends. Any time I think about mountains, a feeling of joy and excitement overwhelms me.

Music is another very important positive trigger. Any time I sit down to write I play relaxing folk music in the background. It puts my mind at ease and allows my thoughts to flow freely.

When you feel a negative emotion inside, quickly shift your thoughts to that happy place, happy song or happy memory. In the beginning, this will be hard to accomplish, but with practice it will get easier and eventually it will become a part of who you are.

Are you ready to unleash the joy within you? Learn how to let go of limiting beliefs, feel excited and motivated to succeed, re-wire your brain to create more happiness now, and take back control of your feelings and emotions. I want you to experience joy in your daily life. I want to see you reach your highest potential. And I want to help you do it! So, let’s begin this journey of exploration together.

Discover Your Life Purpose: Personality

Discover Your Life Purpose: Personality

Your personality type plays a big role in telling you and others who you are. It also tells you about the type of career you could pursue as well as the type of people who are the best fit for you.

One of the most highly regarded personality tests today is the Myers Briggs Type Inventory (MBTI). This test divides people into 16 personality types. 8 characteristics will be looked at, and after a brief description, you will need to decide which of the two contrasting traits most applies to you.

I also recommend that you take an online personality test here: https://www.16personalities.com/

Once you have discovered your personality type, you can find valuable information about possible career and relationship options here:

https://www.truity.com/view/types

Let’s begin.

Are you an introvert (I) or an extrovert (E)? Do you focus more on the external world around you or on your own inner thoughts and feelings?

Are you a sensor (S) or an intuitive (N)? A sensor is someone that focuses on the information in front of them and is in constant pursuit of facts, whereas an intuitive seeks to find meaning and insights from beyond the senses.

Are you a thinker (T) or a feeler (F)? A thinker values logic above all else. They analyze the information provided to them and make decisions in one or the other direction. Feelers make decisions based on how they feel and also take the feelings of others into consideration.

Are you a judger (J) or perceiver (P)? Are you someone that prefers structure and order or someone that prefers to be spontaneous?

Once you’ve decided which four characteristics best describe you, write them down. For example, I am an ENFJ.

People with my personality type are driven to implement their vision of what is best for humanity. They see the potential in other people and are easily able to express their ideas to others. They have a vision, and are passionate about helping others develop to their fullest potential.

Once you’ve finished the test, let me know your results.

Are you ready to discover your life purpose? Learn how to take advantage of your natural talents, embrace your passions, understand your personality and create beliefs that will empower you to live a fulfilling life. I want you to find meaning and joy in this life. I want you to pursue your dreams and to believe that they are possible. And I want to help you do it! So, let’s begin this journey of exploration together.

Unravel Joy: Limiting Beliefs

Unravel Joy: Limiting Beliefs

Have you ever sat down and thought about your beliefs? How do they affect the way you live? Have they helped you rise above or kept you on the ground?

From a young age, I was taught that life is hard. My parents struggled a lot in their lives and I was conditioned to believe that life is about pain and suffering. Their intention was to help me deal with the obstacles that life presented me with. What occurred though, was that I came to expect the worst. My outlook on life and the world were negative, and what I watched in the news confirmed that belief. When good things happened to me, I couldn’t really enjoy it because in the back of my head I believed that I didn’t deserve it.

I was also taught to respect my elders. The intention behind this belief was honest and pure; my parents wanted to teach me the importance of listening to my elders and accepting counsel when I do something wrong. The problem though, was that I was expected to do what I was told. I was not allowed to differ in opinion or thought. With time, I began to resent the fact that I couldn’t express myself honestly.

Have you heard any of these statements?

  • No pain, no gain
  • Don’t burn your bridges
  • Money is the root of all evil
  • Money doesn’t grow on trees

In what ways could these beliefs be limiting?

What I’ve learned to say instead is:

  • Life is beautiful. I can find many reasons to believe that this life is full of love, joy and peace. I can experience goodness and be the recipient of gifts. I am allowed to embrace the wonderful and exciting.
  • Look at life from different perspectives, and then make your own decision. It is important to consider advice from those with more experience, but it is ok if you don’t agree with them on every point. You can make your own decisions and do your best to live a good life on your own terms.

Are you ready to unleash the joy within you? Learn how to let go of limiting beliefs, feel excited and motivated to succeed, re-wire your brain to create more happiness now, and take back control of your feelings and emotions. I want you to experience joy in your daily life. I want to see you reach your highest potential. And I want to help you do it! So, let’s begin this journey of exploration together.

Unravel Joy: Benefits & Challenges

Unravel Joy: Benefits & Challenges

What are the benefits of happiness?

  • People who are happy don’t suffer from depression, doubt, or anger as much.
  • Happiness helps you be productive, problem solve and be creative.
  • It can help you be more sociable.
  • It can help you have more success at work, with friends and long-lasting relationships.
  • It will not only help you communicate but also connect with others.
  • It can even help in the healing process of physical ailments like wounds, sores etc.
  • It strengthens your immune system.
  • It lengthens your lifespan.
  • It can help you have a healthier view of yourself.

What are the challenges to being happy?

Some people are addicted to drama. When they are in conflict with others, adrenaline is released in their body and it makes them feel alive and connected. It becomes like a drug. You have to be aware of addictive tendencies when trying to create happiness.

Sometimes, drama may give comfort. What would happen if you stopped complaining? What would be the consequences of focusing more on positivity? For many, this would mean that they would no longer be able to complain to others about their problems or things they don’t have. You will have to answer these questions: is negativity and drama providing you with comfort? Is negativity the way you connect with others?

Your conditioning may be playing a role in why you are not happy. Have you been taught to observe life as half full or half empty? You may believe that external factors do not affect the way you live your life, but is that really the case? When you watch or read the news, does it lead you to view the world as a beautiful place or a dangerous and scary place to live? What do your parents, friends or colleagues say about the future?

All of these factors have to be taken into account if you want to reach a state of joy. You need to remember why you want to be happy and what the benefits are. Only then can you begin to unpeel the layers holding you back.

Are you ready to unleash the joy within you? Learn how to let go of limiting beliefs, feel excited and motivated to succeed, re-wire your brain to create more happiness now, and take back control of your feelings and emotions. I want you to experience joy in your daily life. I want to see you reach your highest potential. And I want to help you do it! So, let’s begin this journey of exploration together.
