Eezy Living: Someday Has Arrived

Life is now. Stop waiting for your opportunity to fully live and realize that it is already here.

Perhaps you have always thought that someday you will follow your dreams. The fact is, someday has now arrived.

Your authentic purpose is calling out to you. Now is the time to be fulfilling that purpose.

Go now in the direction you’ve always known you must go. Allow the unique and beautiful person you are to come fully to life.

Let go of the excuses and rationalizations that keep you mired in disappointment and frustration. Move quickly forward by continually reminding yourself of why you are doing so.

This is the moment for bold, yet sincere action. Someday is here, and the richness of life is now yours to experience.

Eezy Living: Empowering Perspective

Whatever your problems may be, you’re not going to solve them by withdrawing from life. It may seem that life has beat you down, but that doesn’t mean you have to hide from it.

The answer is not to give up on life. The answer is to give up your negative perspective.

Success does not come from avoiding the difficult things. Success comes from transcending the difficulties while transforming them into positive value.

Yes, it is painful to move forward when you feel that life is pushing against you. Yet what is even more painful is the regret you’ll feel if you don’t make the effort.

Your attitude is always your choice. No matter what is happening on the outside, you can always maintain a powerful, positive outlook on the inside.

Choose today to rise above whatever might be threatening to bring you down. Choose a perspective that empowers you, and use that power to do truly great things.

Eezy Living: Feel The Greatness

This is a great day to be alive. This is a great day to be who you are, where you are, and the way you are.

On this day, you can begin by assuming the best. Then you can follow through and do everything in your power to make it happen.

Today there will be all kinds of challenges and frustrations. And today, you can use each one of them as a way to grow stronger, more compassionate, more capable and more accomplished.

This is a day that’s too unique and precious to waste. This is a day that’s filled with new and exciting possibilities for making a difference.

Though there are certainly things to complain about, there is much more to be thankful for. Focus on the gratitude instead of the shortcomings, and you’ll invite today’s special flavor of abundance into your life.

This is a great day to be positive, purposeful and filled with enthusiasm for all you can do. Feel all the potential greatness in this day, and get busy bringing it to life in your own special way.

Eezy Living: Real Success

There are as many definitions of success as there are people who pursue it. Real success is what feels right to you, what you know in your heart that it is.

If you have to compromise your most deeply held values to achieve success, that isn’t success. If you have to make yourself miserable to achieve success, that isn’t success.

Real success comes from bringing to life the best of who you are. It has nothing to do with acquiring trinkets or exercising power over others.

Real success comes when you use each moment to express a purpose that is uniquely you. Success is a gift you work to give rather than a position you strive to attain.

You can never be happy by accumulating things you don’t truly cherish, no matter how many of them you may have. Happiness is yours when you simply let it be, with no conditions and no requirements.

Move on past the disappointment that comes from following a dream that is not yours. Be the best of who you are, and live the joy of real success.

Eezy Living: Lift The Fog

Negative thoughts fog your thinking and your perception. With each doubt, with each frustration, with each fear the fog grows heavier.

After a while, it becomes difficult to see how to move forward. And that just makes the fog even thicker.

The fog of negative thinking prevents you from seeing and acting on your best possibilities. Instead of focusing on moving forward, you’re able only to give your attention to the petty distractions of the moment.

There is something, though, that will burn off that fog. It is determined, passionate, meaningful intention.

Give your energy to positive purpose, and the fog will begin to lift. Then step confidently through what’s left of the fog, and you’ll quickly leave it behind.

At times it may seem that there’s no escaping the fog of your negative thoughts, yet at any time you can choose to be free. Fill your spirit with true purpose, and your best possibilities will come clearly into view.

Eezy Living: Better Than Ever

If you’re in a pattern that’s taking you nowhere, it’s time to create a new pattern. That’s not nearly as difficult as it might initially sound.

You are the person who is keeping yourself stuck in an unproductive pattern. You are the person who can move quickly, decisively and permanently to something much better.

Stop and take an honest, objective look at what you’re doing. If you had a good friend who was doing the same kinds of things, think of the advice you would give that friend.

One big reason you keep doing what doesn’t work is because it feels comfortable. So remind yourself that continuing in a negative, unproductive and unfulfilling pattern will make you extremely uncomfortable in the long run.

Comfort feels nice, and yet fulfillment and meaningful achievement feel thousands of times better. Your life is meant to be filled with the richness of new experiences, not just the comfort of familiar routines.

Get yourself out of that same old pattern and get yourself on a path that will resonate with your passion. You owe it to yourself, and to all of life, to continue becoming better than ever.

Eezy Living: Give Care

If all you care about is what’s in it for you, there won’t be much in it for you. If all you care about is what other people think of you, people won’t think very highly of you.

What you care about has a powerful impact on the way your life unfolds. So instead of caring so much about what you think you need, put your energy into caring for all that you have.

You have life, and great possibilities, and other people with whom to enjoy it all. You have a universe filled with beauty and wonder, and the opportunity to create new meaning and value.

Give loving care, attention, gratitude and support to the abundance with which your world is filled. Take good care of the good things, and they will grow even more beneficial.

Give care, focused thought, attention and awareness to whatever you’re doing, and whatever you’re doing will bring meaningful, valuable results. Give your care to making a difference, and continually put that care into action.

Lift up life by caring for it. Give true care, and the rewards are immense.

Eezy Living: Think Highly Of Yourself

Very often, your biggest limitations are the limitations you put on yourself. What you expect has a profound effect on what you actually get.

If you think of yourself as too old, too inexperienced, uninformed, dull or ordinary, those negative expectations influence the way you live. When you think of yourself as creative, passionate, interesting, valuable, unique and genuine, those positive expectations will be expressed in your life.

Thinking highly of yourself doesn’t mean you have to be arrogant or elitist. When you truly think highly of yourself, you’ll end up living your life so as to genuinely prove those thoughts accurate.

You can be held back by your expectations, or encouraged forward by your expectations. Make the choice to be encouraged, inspired, motivated and compelled by the positive things you expect of yourself.

Sure, there are many difficult challenges you’ll face in living a fulfilled, successful life. Don’t add your own negative expectations to those challenges.

Instead, expect the best of yourself in every moment and in every situation. And ride those expectations forward to a life of true fulfillment.

Eezy Living: Start The Ball Rolling

Motivation leads to action, and action leads to more motivation. If you’re not motivated to do anything, do a little something anyway and start the ball rolling.

Even the smallest positive step can begin to create positive momentum. Take that small step, feel the tiny wisp of motivation and momentum, and let it carry you to the next modest step.

Even if it doesn’t seem to accomplish anything, a small, initial positive action does in fact achieve something of great consequence. It gets you going.

Once you’re in motion, you’re much more likely to stay in motion. The longer you stay in motion, the more likely you are to keep going.

The best thing to do when you don’t feel like doing anything, is to do something. Remind yourself that although you may be severely unmotivated, you can take a small action anyway.

No matter what your situation or level of motivation may be, there’s some little something you can do. Do it now, get the ball rolling, and let the power of positive momentum push you forward.

Eezy Living: Live Smart

Don’t just think about how great life can be. Live those thoughts.

In your own unique way, you are incredibly smart. So use the opportunity of this day to live smart.

Your best ideas deserve much more than to be stuck in your mind. Bring those ideas to life.

You intuitively understand what it will take to make a positive difference in the world. So go ahead, and actually do what it takes.

Put your thinking into action and truly experience how great life can be. Translate your intelligent thoughts into effective, rewarding efforts.

You’re smart enough to know what it takes to create the fulfillment you desire. Put that great intelligence to use, today, and make it happen.

Eezy Living: Amaze Yourself

Jump right out into life and make your own special splash. Forget about what conventional wisdom says, or what is normal or comfortable, and listen to your passion.

One of the worst things you can do is to create lifelong regrets out of missed opportunities. The momentary discomfort of venturing into new territory is nothing compared to all the treasure you’ll discover when you choose to step forward.

There is so very much richness that you can create out of the things that are already available to you in abundance. Visualize your own special version of life’s richness and delight in making it happen.

Today is not a day to sit around and watch. Today is a day to live fully and enthusiastically and courageously.

You have it in you; there is no doubt. Choose to let it out.

Amaze yourself with the new and great and wonderful things you do. Today is an opportunity that you definitely don’t want to miss.

Eezy Living: Give This Day Purpose

To get the most out of this day, give it a purpose. Instead of just taking whatever comes, experience this day the way you choose to experience it.

If this day has no clear purpose, then you’re likely to be tossed around by all the random things that happen. Yet when you’ve made a firm commitment to a specific result, your focused direction will enable you to rise above the distractions and diversions.

If you’re standing still, wondering what to do next, the obstacles will push you back. Yet when you’re already moving forward and you encounter obstacles, your momentum will help carry you through them.

Give this day a purpose that will excite you, motivate you, ignite your passion and compel you to get moving. Give yourself something good and meaningful to show for the time you spend living this day.

When the next step is clear, you’re much more likely to take it. When you’ve decided exactly what is to be done, you’re much more likely to do it.

There is enormous positive potential in this very day. Give this day a purpose, and claim some of the great value it offers.

EEzy Living: Build great strength

Don’t run from failure or hide from failure or avoid the possibility of failure. Use failure to improve.

If you’re not willing to fail, you won’t be able to grow. To become stronger and more capable, you must push yourself beyond what you already know you can do.

It is only by lifting more weight than you’ve lifted before that you strengthen your muscles. It is by experiencing failure that you discover new ways to succeed.

Failure and disappointment can serve as powerful steps along the path to magnificent achievement. In dealing with the difficult times, you build great strength with which to create good, meaningful, satisfying and fulfilling value in your world.

Success means nothing if it is not earned. Failure is an important part of earning success.

The road to achievement will constantly test you. Be willing to take those tests, and to work through those tests, and achievement is yours.

Eezy Living: Live Beyond Fear

There is real treasure at the center of your being. Yet fear can keep that treasure hidden and inaccessible.

Fear of failure can keep you from taking the steps necessary to succeed. Fear of being wrong can prevent you from making the choices that are truly right for you.

Fear of loss leaves you unable to win. Fear gives power and influence to whatever it is you fear.

Yet fear can exist only when you view life through the narrow window of your ego. Get beyond that ego, and fear no longer has any place to inhabit.

When you view the rest of life as being separate and disconnected from you, that provides fertile ground for destructive fear. The more fully you realize and the more deeply you understand your connection to all that is, the more quickly the fears will vanish.

Stop listening to your ego and you’ll stop being a prisoner of fear. Think and act and feel beyond yourself and you’ll live well beyond the fear.
