What closed doors really mean

15_WHAT CLOSED DOORS REALLY MEAN
views
15

How many times have you heard that every time you see a door close open it? or break that door down?

We all have goals and the moments we start working on them we will face challenges, some of us give up with the first challenge and others give up according to the level of the challenge, some of us will get pass through small challenges while others give up if they require a lot of effort but that´s what a challenge is, it requires hard work and time.

We´ve all been working in projects and we´ve all faced closed doors but, what did you do with those closed doors? did you give up? did you try to open them with the skills and knowledge you already have? how many times did you try to open it?

Most of us prefer open doors than closed doors and the reason is simple, a open door means that we don´t need to work to get to another level we can just get in but this also means that we stay as we are, we don´t learn or grow while when we get to a closed door we need to work if we want to open it and keep going.

For me closed doors mean that there´re some skills, abilities and knowledge that I need to learn or acquire to get to a higher level. The ones who are willing to learn those new skills and apply them to the best of their abilities are the ones who will get pass through that door, and with every door is the same each close door means it´s time to learn something new and become better the best part of all this is that with every new door we become someone else, we grow we can´t continue being who we are if we want something bigger for us there´s something we need to change, we need to become the kind of person who deserves to win.

Closed doors are not for everyone just for the ones who are going to take the time and work as hard as they need to improve their skills, learn new ones and get better. It doesn´t matter how many close doors we need to break we will break them and if those skills and lessons help us grow, becomes better person, increase our knowledge and wisdom the we got nothing to lose and a lot to win.

The reason why we give up is fear, not knowing what´s in ht next room and also being lazy those two excuses are the reason why most of us don´t achieve our goals. If we have a plan there´s nothing to fear but if we don´t want to work hard then there´s no way we can achieve anything and we don´t deserve it either.

Now we can´t just knock at the door and wait to see what happens because in most cases nothing will happen, we need to take action in showing up may not be enough. If we open the door and we find out that it wasn´t the right one then we find another door, this means that there´s not one single way or path to achieve our goals so we need to keep adjusting throughout the journey, but the lessons we learnt from the wrong doors will stay with us, the more skills, knowledge and wisdom we get the more doors we can open.

If we have clarity of what we want to achieve and where we want to get it doesn´t matter how many closed doors get on our way we will open them and we will become the person we need to become to achieve our goals, it´s just about patience, persistence and discipline.

Show up, work hard and open as many doors as possible to achieve your goals, no one will do it for you, we can share with you everything you need to know, all the information you need to break those doors down but you need to put in the time, effort and hard work otherwise someone else will use that information and break those doors.

We all have choices

11_WE ALL HAVE CHOICES

How many choices have you made today?

From the moment we wake up until we go to sleep we make a lot of choices and they starts whit the alarm clock, do we get up or do we hit the snooze button? do we exercise, go out for a walk at least or do we stay in bed? do we have breakfast or skip it? if we do have breakfast do we cook something healthy that includes proteins and fats or do we have a bowl of ox cereal? and we continue like this our entire day.

There are different factors that will impact our daily choices like lack or poor quality sleep, stress, mood, nutrition it´s clear that if we don´t feel good we will make poor choices and if we feel great we will make better choices so everything we do to our body inside and out affects every choice and this becomes a cycle that can be positive or negative.

Sometimes we don´t know which choice is better, when we have doubts they come from a lack of clarity, of not knowing what we want and this goes to our values, beliefs, purpose and commitment. When we know exactly what we want to achieve and where we want to get is easier to make choices we just need to ask ourselves which choice is going to moves us towards our goal but if we don´t know what we want then we will end up making choices that give us instant pleasure based on short term results but in the long run those choices have a negative impact.

To make the right choices we need to be clear on what we want, have a clear end result of our goal and know our values, once we got those 2 clear (we also need to know our purpose in life and what we stand for but our values and goals must be align with them as we saw in other post) it´s easier to make the right choice every time we just need to ask ourselves which on is best for us and the people around us, which one get us closer to our goal or which one has a positive impact and more benefits for us and those one around us.

We always need to think of the long game, in many cases we will have to choose between a short term or immediate result which gives us instant gratification or the long term result where we won´t get any instant gratification or reward, we won´t see results in a short term but the long term result and reward of achieving our end goal is worthy, that´s the one we´re looking for we want the big rewards.

We all have to make choices and those are the ones who shape our lifestyle and success on achieving anything, the ones who have a strong will power and commitment to make the right choice every single time are the ones who win, those who keep making bad choices thinking only the instant reward never achieve their biggest dreams.

Some of us have clarity but for some reason we can´t make the right choice, here we need to ask ourselves if we are committed to that goal if we´re willing to do whatever it takes to go all in and put all our effort, time and concentration on it, we may want to achieve a big goal but we don´t want to work hard or spend too much time, we prefer to go to the party and have fun than spend those hours working on our project, then we´re not committed.

One way to make it easier for us to make the right and best choice every time is to develop habits, routines and systems so that our brain doesn´t need to think about it, if we want to lose weight we schedule a time of the day when we can exercise for 1 hour and we make sure that it can be the same hour every day, if it´s in the morning when the alarm clock sounds we get up and exercise, and we do it every single day until we don´t have to ask ourselves if we want to do it or not.

When we develop as many healthy habits, routines and systems we design our day to be more productive and we also reduce work on our brain so we have more energy to think and make better choices for the rest of the day.

Achieving our goals depends of us

When we set a goal most of the time we already know what we need to do, at least at the beginning and the only thing we need to do is take action, achieving any goal depends of ourselves, if we don´t take action we´ll never achieve anything.

We can share all the tools you need and everything you need to know about fitness, health and success but if you don´t take action the information we give you is useless.

We can have all the information, the best plan and the best ideas but without the work nothing´s going to happen. Action and execution is what get us closer to our goals and the reason why we don´t take action is because of limiting beliefs, low self confidence we don´t keep ourselves accountable all that is holding us back.

What we need to do is increase self confidence, accountability and the belief in ourselves for this we can follow the next steps:

1. Set small goals.- We need to start with small goals that help us increase our confidence, every small goal we achieve will keep us accountable and motivate us to work for something bigger.

2. Choose a new choice you want to make every single day.- There are some habits that we need to change to make any goal sustainable so we need to decide which habits we want to change and for that we need to make a different choice, choose one and do it for at least a month before you take another one. For example waking up 30 minutes earlier every day to take a walk.

We need to focus on progress and not perfection, taking action consistently over a period of time will give us amazing results, it doesn´t matter how small the action is we need to start somewhere.

We can all achieve great things in life the only reason why we don´t get them is lack of action and that lack of action is based on limiting beliefs, excuses which normally are based on fears. We cannot let our dreams die when we got everything we need to go for them, it´s going to be hard, it´s going to be painful but the reward is worthy.

If you have a dream set is as goal and create a plan of action then start working on it. I talk on other posts about taking massive action, you can take massive action with even a small daily activities like waking up earlier and going for a walk, it all starts by developing habits that are going to make our results sustainable in a simple way.

If we have dreams and goals we are the ones who need to work on them, those are our goals not anyone else’s, we need to start working on our dreams so that in some point in the future we can stop working for someone else’s dreams.

If our goals are important enough for us, if they move us emotionally then we will make everything we need, it´s easy to concentrate and work hard when we have a clear end result that motivate us, nothing and no one can stop us and even when we fail we´ll learn from that failure and get up stronger with more wisdom to keep moving forward.

Leave a legacy

6_foto tree goals

If we think about the reason or purpose we´re here it´s to make this world a better place, to help as much people as possible and to leave a blueprint that can help the people behind us.

If we have the desire to be remembered by our contribution to society or to the world we need to work on building our legacy, what can we do now to help as much people as possible and to make this a better world?

For me there are two important things here: what do we want to be remembered for? and what blueprint can we leave that will be of help for future generations?

When our time is over how do we want to be remembered? what do we want to be known for? we all have a limited time and we´re here to live our best life possible. People will remember us by how we treated them, how we make them feel and the impact we had on their lives, if we do good for people our impact will last. The more people we help the better not only for us.

Do we want to be remembered as someone kind and generous, always helping the ones around and making people feel important? Then we need to start being kind and generous right now, treat everyone with respect and attention and make them feel important.

What blueprint can we leave behind that help future generations achieve more than we did? For this we need to be clear on our values, principles and priorities. What´s most important for us in our life, do we want to leave a guide for success, how to be a great athlete, how to be a great musician or actor, how to live our best life possible.

We all have different priorities and interest, our life is like a book full of stories structured by chapters, every chapter can be a lesson for others to avoid our mistakes, even when we all need to go through challenges and fail there are some failures and mistakes that can be avoided, this is why autobiographies from great people are a fantastic we take some of their ideas or experiences and apply them to our life in certain situations.

Our purpose help us leave a legacy, our purpose is the reason why we´re here, what do we love doing, what we´re good at and how can we help as much people as possible, when we find our purpose and work on it we live a meaningful and fulfilling life that will leave a blueprint behind for others to follow and will also helps us be remembered in the way we want.

By working and focusing on our purpose we focus on the things that matter, we spend most of our time doing meaningless stuff, we´re just busy but not productive, it seems like we´re doing a lot but we´re actually not making any progress and not getting results. When we think of our purpose as a way to live a meaningful and fulfilling life for us by helping people and making this a better world and also as our way to leave a legacy we get motivated to do what we need to do, we start working toward results and stop wasting time on activities or stuff that doesn´t matter.

Share with us the comment section how do you want to be remembered and what are you doing every day to make that happen.

We can achieve everything we want

What would you think if I tell you that we can achieve almost everything we want in life? Would you get excited and interested on how you can do it and why I said almost everything?

The reason why I said almost is because there are 2 variables we need to consider which are:

1. Control.- Is our goal or whatever we want to achieve in our control?

2. Effort.- Are we willing to work as hard as we need for as long as we need?

If our goal or whatever we want to achieve is in our control meaning that we can control our progress almost entirely throughout the journey, our end results and we are willing to work smart, to work as hard as we need for as long as we need then we can achieve whatever we want.

If our goals depend of some external factor we can´t control then there´s no need to focus a lot on them but in most cases when we set a goal or we want to achieve something the end results or whether we achieve it or not depends of us and our commitment to that goal.

For anything we want to achieve we need to make a commitment and keep ourselves accountable, when we set a goal most of the times we already know what we need to do and we know that it´s going to be hard, it´s going to require hard work and it´s going to take time, if we´re not committed and we don´t have a strong reason why we want to achieve it we will fail.

We need to have a clear idea of what we want to achieve and make a plan, almost everything has already been done so we can follow the steps of the ones before us. We already have a guide we just need to take that guide and adjust it to fit our goal and our life so that we can follow it, then we need to take massive action.

If we work smart by doing the right thing, if we work hard and do it for a long period of time we will get results and we will achieve our goal, self-discipline, perseverance and patience are key. For how long are you willing to work as hard as you can?

Having a clear goal with a clear vision in our mind of that goal achieved, an insane focus and obsession and massive action every single day is the secret to achieve whatever we want but not everyone will do it.

Many people will call us insane or crazy but if we want to achieve something worth having we need to own it, all of us want to achieve amazing things but most of us don´t want to spend the time and put the hard work so the ones who are not willing to work hard for long periods of time don´t deserve to achieve success.

Success is not for the lucky ones, success is for the ones who set clear goals, create the plan and work as hard as possible, success is for the ones who own it.

Are you ready to own your success?

We are here for a reason

It´s just another day, one more day to go and… do exactly the same as the day before.

Have you ever woke up one morning and not feel like wanting to wake up and go to work, you don´t feel motivated to do what you need to do?

This happens to all of us and this means that we haven´t found our purpose in life, what makes us feel fulfilled so we´re lost or we know our purpose, we know what makes us feel happy and fulfilled but we´re not working on it because we follow what´s normal.

To find our purpose, what makes us feel happy and fulfilled comes from doing something that has meaning and that involves giving. Is not only about asking what would we love to do even if no one pays us? Is about doing or working on something that is meaningful, something that has value and meaning to us.

Once we find our purpose our life will be much easier and enjoyable, our purpose is our guide and all our actions and decisions are based on that purpose. Every time we need to make a decision and for every action we want to take we just need to ask our self if those actions or decisions align to our purpose, if the answer is positive then go ahead.

There are simple ways to know what your purpose is and here are the steps:

1.- Ask the right questions.- What is your talent? what are you good at? what do you love? in which activities do you get insane focus?

2.- How can you help people around you or around the world by doing what you love and what you are good at?

3.- Values and principles.- You need to get clear on what you stand for and lead through your values and principles

4.- How can you make a living

When you find the talent that you are good at and that you love doing and find ways to help people leading with your values and principles you are on your way to living a life with purpose. It is hard to do but once you do it your life will change completely and with the right mindset you´ll find ways to make a living from it.

Having a purpose is having a reason to wake up every morning that motivates you and inspires you, that keeps you excited and that make your life amazing. This is how we´re supposed to live and everyone deserves to live this way.

When we find our purpose we just need to take action and here another struggle begins, we will go against what´s consider normal and most people won´t like it so we need to stay true to ourselves and follow our heart, our purpose even when people don´t support us, most of them prefer to follow the normal average and mediocre life and it´s hard for them to see someone living a better life, being happy and feeling fulfilled so we need to continue and if there´s someone who wants to change their life and we can help them then we take them with us by helping them find their purpose.

Do everything as best as you can

We spend too much time comparing ourselves to others, we spend too much time watching what others are doing in most cases just to criticize, we spend time paying attention to our outside world instead of paying attention to us.

We all have different talents and abilities and we´re all at different levels, when we compare ourselves or our work to others we´re not considering their level or talent we just focus on the result and this makes us feel like failure, like we´re not good enough. Every time we spend comparing ourselves or watching what others are doing we´re just wasting valuable time, we can spend that time on improving our skill and learning new ones to get better.

When we focus on doing everything as best as we can every single day we feel happy and satisfied, we know that if we do something over and over we will get better.

When we pay attention to what is going around us, what other people are doing or saying we´re focusing on what we can´t control, when we focus on what we´re doing and where we can improve we´re focusing on what we can control.

The best thing we can do is focus on what we can control and aim to do everything we do as best as we can. We need to realize that we can´t be successful at many things at a time so we need to work on one or two activities of projects and become the best at them, we can all become the best at what we do if we put the hard work and time needed so we need to focus and work on mastering our stuff, improving and learning new skills every single day.

We cannot waste time paying attention to external factors that we can´t control and that can break us  emotionally and mentally which is what happens with critiques and haters.

It´s not about comparing what we do, our work and project with somebody else’s work it´s about our work and how we feel about it, there are some simple questions we can ask ourselves to know if we did our best or not:

1. Did I give my all?

2. Could I have done better?

3. Am I proud of the results?

Most of us strive for perfection and for some of us this is a huge mistake that can bring us down by not feeling good enough, we need to strive for excellence, what´s the best work we can do. We need to keep in mind that if it´s our first time doing something the result may not be great compared to someone who has done it several times but with time and practice our results will improve so we need to measure our work or result based on our actual knowledge and skill.

More often than not we are capable of accomplishing amazing results but we sell ourselves short, we don´t give it our all we know deep inside that we could have done better and many times when we do not get the results we wanted is a lack of effort and not a lack of knowledge, practice or skills.

From now on we need to make the commitment to do everything we do as best as we can and our goal is to strive for the best work or results we want based on our knowledge and skills but using them to our full potential and give our all always.

The importance of small achievements

6_foto tree goals

How many times have you think about setting small goals and then refuse to them because you think those small goals won´t get you anywhere?

Most of us don´t have the confidence and believe that we can achieve amazing things in life, for so many different reasons we´ve been losing self-confidence and we no longer believe in ourselves, we´re not accountable any more.

When we want to live a better life we know we need to change something but if we set big goals we won´t achieve them and we feel even worse, we can´t start with a big goal if we don´t have self-confidence and if we don´t believe in ourselves so what we need to do is start small.

When we set small goals like doing 20 minutes of exercise every day is a huge step that will give us amazing results, when we are able to stick with this goal we can add another one like giving up all junk food, now those 2 smaller goals will have a huge impact on all aspects of our life.

When we start seeing progress, when we see those results showing up and when we are able to accomplish those smaller goals or achievements we increase our confidence, we start believing in ourselves and that will give us everything we need to set bigger goals knowing that we can do it.

We need to start small and keep building slowly, this way we will achieve greater goals than if we try to start with something big when we´re not accountable, when we don´t believe in ourselves, when we don´t believe we can´t do it and we deserve it and when we´ve lost self-confidence.

We want to develop a mindset that can help us get through life and live to our full potential, we want to develop or replace old bad habits with good ones that make it easier for us to live an amazing life so we need to think in the future, in long term not short term.

We´re looking for results that last even if they take longer to achieve not for faster results that won´t last long enough. We need to think of the future, long term but work short term what I mean is that we need to keep our focus or keep remembering our finale goal but put the hard work, time, effort, dedication today to build the habits we need to sustain our results.

Building confidence and believe takes time and the way to do it is with small accomplishments, setting goals that give us results every week or two so that we can see progress.

If we have a big goal in mind chances are we can accomplish it if we believe in ourselves and that confidence has increased. What we need to do is set an ultimate date to achieve your finale goal and start working backwards dividing that big goal or finale goal into smaller goals we can achieve each month and week.

Once we have the smaller goals or weekly goals we need to focus on them, work as hard as we can always remembering of our finale goal.

Be a student, always keep learning

Life is our biggest teacher, have you thought about this? there´s something we can learn from any interaction, every situation, from everyone around us we just need to be open to find the lessons and learn.

We live in a time where information is everywhere, we are overloaded with information and if we want to stay up to date we need to keep learning.

Life is the master and we are the students, living means enjoying life by being present in the moment and accepting challenges and adventures and we also need to go through ups and downs and learn from failures. Life will always be our greatest teacher, it will put us in situations where we need to find our way out so that we can learn something.

There are so many ways and sources to get knowledge and learn from books, research, podcast it´s only about finding the right information, reading, understanding and applying it but we can also learn something new from every situation and every person.

When we are open to learn we don´t criticize or blame, we´re not listening to give an answer, we´re always thinking about what we can learn from that situation, we listen to understand the other persons point of view and learn something from them. The best lessons in life are not taught in school they are learned through experiences, one way to keep learning is to start a new project of something we´ve never done before.

Failures are a great way to learn, if we take time to revise and see what we did wrong and where we need to improve we will get better, we also learn what not to do and the biggest the failure the biggest the impact it will have, failures are only worthy if we learn from them.

If we read books, magazines, blogs, listen to podcast, watch interviews, something we listen from friends, family, etc; we get so much information so what we need to do is understand all that information and think for ourselves not in a scenes of judgment but we need to make sure that the information we keep is true so we need to use and apply what we learnt otherwise it´s only information in our heads, real learning and knowledge come from using the information we´ve got in real life situations and then how can we use that knowledge to be better and to help the people around us.

Be curious, by being curious we are open to try new stuff, to explore, to accept new adventures and question everything. Curiosity opens new doors and possibilities to challenges we´ve never faced and it can be the way to find our passion or what we love doing, it also sparks creativity which can take us to so many different paths.

Some people go through life thinking that they know everything and this is the biggest mistake we can make, this type of thinking and mindset only keeps us stuck in that level or place, it doesn´t matter where we are right now there´s always something we can learn from any situation and from every people we meet, learning is the best investment we´re always do.

Be true to yourself

3_foto completo

The more time we spend on social media the more we compare ourselves to others, the more we try to be like them.

If we search by themes on social media most of the accounts will look similar. We´re all looking for attention so when we share something in our accounts and we don´t get as many attention as we want we tend to check other accounts from people we consider to be better than us and we start modeling their content and when we do this we´re not being ourselves and people notice.

The best thing we can do is be true to ourselves, this can be so hard to do because we´ve been copying or modeling someone else and hiding our true selves to fit in. Since we´re all looking for attention and we all want to fit in, to be part of a group and look like everyone else but this is completely normal, we´ve been thought this when we were in school and society thought us what is normal so with school and society we learnt how we need to act if we want to fit in.

Fear is what is stopping us from being and showing who we really are, fear of what people think or say about us the problem is that in reality we´re looking for authenticity, the more authentic, real and true someone is the more attention that person gets and the people around wants to know him/her.

The people that seem to be authentic in every situation are comfortable in their own skin, they have confidence in themselves and they´re not scared of what people will say or think of them, they´re not looking for approval they know that when they are truth to themselves and can be who they really are they will be accepted and liked by people who prefer the truth.

We´re all different, we´re all unique and in a world with too much information and when we´re all looking for attention the best thing we can do is be true to ourselves, this is going to differentiate us from everyone else, our uniqueness is what´s going to set us apart, it will make us stand out and when people find us and see that we´re being true and we´re really showing and sharing who we really are we´ll get attention.

To be able to be ourselves in everything we do and be true to ourselves we need to accept who we really are, be comfortable with it and then we can be who we really are in any situation.

After so many years being told that we need to fit in, that we need to follow orders and rules in order to be accepted and to get attention we lost the essence of who we really are so it will take time to find ourselves, to accept and be comfortable being ourselves and the first step is by doing it alone, how do we feel and think of ourselves when we are alone? what does that little voice inside our heads tell us?

Our beliefs and principles are a huge part of finding ourselves again, by asking to ourselves what do we belief? what do we stand for? what principles move us? our beliefs and principles are our guide.

At first when we start the journey of finding our true selves we can get confused between our beliefs and principles and what we´ve been thought growing up, what we can do is ask ourselves if a certain thought or idea goes according to our values, beliefs and principles or not and how does that idea or thought makes us feel, if it feels right and goes according to our values, beliefs and principles then it´s right.

Once you accept who you are and feel comfortable when you are alone then you can start sharing it with people around you. Keep in mind that some people won´t be supportive and won´t like the idea of being truth to yourself, most people prefer to hide themselves in order to fit. Do not take any negative comments personal with time you´ll be accepted, trusted and respected for being truth and real.
