10 Life-Changing Tips Inspired by Tony Robbins

Standard

The following article is from Robert Piper.  We love Tony Robbins, he definitely has Good Juju flowing!

Tony Robbins is one of the most famous inspirational speakers of our time. Here are ten of my favorite nuggets from this motivational giant.

1. Embrace setbacks. 
“Every problem is a gift – without problems we would not grow.”
2. There are no limitations.
“If you can’t you must, and if you must you can.”
3. Be willing to change.
“If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten. ”
4. Don’t focus on your fears.
“Focus on where you want to go, not on what you fear.”
5. Focus on solutions.
“Identify your problems but give your power and energy to solutions.”
6. Take action.
“A real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken a new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided.”
7. Ask good questions.
“Successful people ask better questions, and as a result, they get better answers.”
8. Make the life you dreamed of.
“I challenge you to make your life a masterpiece. I challenge you to join the ranks of those people who live what they teach, who walk their talk.”
9. Be willing to raise your standards for what you accept in life.
“Any time you sincerely want to make a change, the first thing you must do is to raise your standards. When people ask me what really changed my life eight years ago, I tell them that absolutely the most important thing was changing what I demanded of myself. I wrote down all the things I would no longer accept in my life, all the things I would no longer tolerate, and all the things that I aspired to becoming.”
10. Don’t focus on the small things in life.
“Most people fail in life because they major in minor things.”

Great Quotes to Create Good Juju

Standard
Following are 10 great quotes to get help you feel inspired. Compliments of Daily Inspiration and Motivation.

“Never give up on something that you can’t go a day without thinking about.

Watch your thoughts; they become words.

Watch your words; they become actions.

Watch your actions; they become habits.

Watch your habits; they become character.

Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.”

“Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.”

“Everything is okay in the end, if it’s not ok, then it’s not the end.”

“I do it because i can, I can because I want to, I want to because you said I couldn’t.”

 “When you feel like giving up, remember why you held on for so long in the first place.”

“A champion is someone who gets up, even when he can’t.”

“When things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill, When the funds are low and the debts are high, And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must, but don’t you quit. Life is queer with its twists and turns, As every one of us sometimes learns, And many a failure turns about When he might have won had he stuck it out; Don’t give up though the pace seems slow—You may succeed with another blow, Success is failure turned inside out—The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems so far; So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit—It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.”

“Every great achievement was once considered impossible.”

 

Create Good Juju with a Vision Board

Standard

With the beginning of the New Year, many of us are reevaluating our goals.  I’ve always thought about creating a Vision Board, but never have.  However, I think this week I will.

A vision board is a visual demonstration of your goals.  Cut out pictures that represent what you want to achieve in 2013.  Glue them to a piece of poster board and post it on your bulletin board. Let this serve as a daily reminder of your aspirations. Have others in your family create their own.  It’ll be a fun art project that everyone can get into, and it’ll get the Good Juju flowing!

Another suggestion is to create a digital version of your vision board. Simply make a graphic collage and set it as your background image on your computer.  That way, it will always be top of mind and a nice reminder of what you hope to achieve in the coming year.

Good Juju Tip #10 for a Happy Holiday Season

Standard

The following tip comes to us from the Intent Blog.

Act On What You Know Will Make You Happy, Even It’s Hard

Putting your happiness first isn’t always easy. It often requires going against what everyone else is doing or thinking. But if you aren’t true to what feels right for you, even if it doesn’t fit the needs and sensibilities of other people — parents, partners and friends included – aren’t you just selling yourself out? You always know what the best action is to take for you, it’s just not always easy. Be committed to your happiness, even when it’s scary, and even when other people don’t like it.

Good Juju Tip #9 for a Happy Holiday Season

Standard

The holidays are all about showing others how special they are to us.  Today’s tip of the day comes from Zen Habits.

Give a free hug.  OK, only do this when appropriate … but if you have a loved one in your life, give them a hug! Often we can go too long without showing our affection and gratitude, even to those who are closest to us. Don’t neglect this important part of your relationship. By “free” hug, I mean don’t expect anything in return — just give it as a gift of gratitude. If you give a hug to a stranger, be prepared to run very fast afterward.

Good Juju Tip #8 for a Happy Holiday Season

Standard

Keep expectations realistic. Don’t expect the holidays to be perfect or even the same as they were last year. As families change and grow, treasured traditions may need to change, too. Talk with loved ones about which traditions to keep and be open to creating new ones. If, for example, some relatives can’t come to your home, find new ways to celebrate with them across the miles, such as sharing photos and videos or communicating via Skype.

Good Juju Tip #6 for a Happy Holiday Season

Standard

Feel the Good Juju with the scent of a season favorite.

Peel yourself a clementine When researchers mapped the moods created by certain fragrances, they found the scent of this sweet, juicy fruit more likely to boost joy. Not only will a whiff of one help keep you happy, the vitamin C, calcium, and potassium in it will help keep you healthy too.
