The Art Of Letting Go And Wonders It Can Do For Your Life

‘’Some of us think holding on makes us strong, but sometimes it is letting go.’’
– Hermann Hesse

Letting go of the things that no longer serve us in life is beyond difficult. It requires a huge mental effort, lucidity, and will. The common reason why we hesitate to let go and continue to dwell on the past regrets is usually fear. However, it’s not any kind of fear, but the fear of change. For many people change is far more frightening than pain. We are only able to break free from this vicious circle when the current situation becomes unbearable. But then it will be too late.

Find What Motivates You

Allow me to get straight to the point. You can set as many clear and concise goals you so choose. You can write them in attractive notebooks and fancy them up with highlighters for that added extra. But unless you’re clear as to what will motivate you to actually make those goals happen. You will not move forward. End of story.

I read so many personal development books that tell you that one of the key ways to become successful in whatever your chosen field may be is to be decisive and clear in your goals and your overall objective. Of course, this is in many ways accurate but behind this has to be the intention to be committed to lifting these goals off of the page and this can only happen if you are completely aware of what will drive you and empower you to make them happen, no matter what, regardless of the sacrifice.

Find It Difficult To Meditate? Read This!

Meditation by its original definition is nothing more than thinking about something or contemplating about something. Lately however when someone says ‘I meditate’ we assume the person sits in the lotus position (with legs crossed) holding palms of their hands together in a prayerlike gesture and… thinking nothing.

When we want to meditate, we usually mean we want to relax in an efficient manner. In short, meditation can be any type of ‘activity’ where your mind is taken off the daily struggles and your body is somewhat rested. Which, in itself, is a bit of a dangerous slope given that many meditation tapes suggest for you to lie down. And of course, we fall asleep if we are tired enough, we’ve all been there!

So, are there other type of meditations we can all do easily and while achieving the results we seek from meditation: rest, recharge and some feeling of balance, (even if only a short period of time after performing meditation?)

Two Words That Can Change Your Life

I used to be always on the go. Felt like time was running out. Seemed as if I was chasing my own tail, striving to become something that I didn’t know I already was. While I am partly to blame, society, trends, clichés and poor information had me believe that “hard work” is the secret to success. I’d make excuses to further solidify my unhealthy attachments to being busy, and burned out in the process. Until, that day came and I burned out. It was at this point where I heard God telling me “There is a better way”. I had no energy to fight any longer, opened my Bible and got the confirmation I needed, slap, bang in my face.

Singer & Songwriter Yuna

When I look at Yuna I firstly see a woman with substance; she doesn’t need to bare skin or compromise her morals to increase her sales because she has been able to transcend barriers and reach international status with her undoubtable song writing and vocal talents. She stands for something far deeper than words can say; than images can convey. She is the epitome of what we call a POWER WOMAN. I caught up with Yuna to talk more on her career, the worldwide success of her album Chapters, working with Usher on ‘that hit’, keeping her personal identity + much more. #BeINspired

To Lose Is To Gain

I know we all have times where we’ve lost people, or we’ve lost precious possessions; but have you ever thought that even though you’ve lost these people and things, there is still something positive that can come out of it? Sometimes in life what we don’t really tend to look at is when we do lose things, we tend to obtain something much better. It is difficult to lose a job or a partner or even a sentimental possession that is close to our heart. However, I encourage you to think about what life and the universal has opened up for and to you. Nothing ever is taken away from you without a better replacement that is never too far behind; you just need to welcome it and be ready to receive it.
