Is Positivity Toxic? WTF!

I first heard this term about a year ago. It just feels wrong to me. But I truly wanted to understand this concept so I did some research. I now understand why and when someone would view thinking positively as toxic. But positivity itself is NOT toxic. What is toxic? FORCED positivity.

Who came up with this term anyhow? First of all, positivity is not even a real word. And second of all, if it were the two terms do not go together. It is a true oxymoron.

So what is toxic positivity? Well, I find it to be when something really tragic happens and someone tells you, "Everything happens for a reason." or "Just think positive it will be over soon." That my friends are forcing positive vibes on someone who needs to grieve. That is FORCED positivity.

3 Ways You Will Stand Out

You see them everywhere on your Facebook feed. Friends selling lashes, makeup, candles, workout attire (really cute stuff), jewelry, and even teas. Yup teas! If you are one of those folks selling online you will want to read this blog post. 

 

Do you want to appeal to your customer? Abso-freaking-lutley! If not then skip this post!

 

I have 3 tips for you! But before I get to those tips, remember selling is not about YOU! Never forget that. This is outer intention 101.

 

Inner intention is about you, it’s what you hope to acquire. Maybe that is the sale. Your sales will expound by leaps and bounds if you use Outer Intention. That’s a Reality Transurfing term but I am about to explain what it is and how it works. I have to tell you a story first.

 

It seems every gal I know is selling something on Facebook and starting a new group or following to join them on their journey. So if everyone is doing this, what are YOU going to do to stand out? Hang...

Focus on This - Tony Robbins Teaching

 The 3 patterns of focus with Tony Robbins are as follows:

  1. Are you focusing on what’s missing from your life or what you are grateful for?
  2. Are you focusing on what you can control or what you can’t control?
  3. Are you focusing on the past, the present, or the future?

 YOUR ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION WILL QUANTIFY YOUR EMOTIONS! 

 AND IT IS YOUR CHOICE!

To be in the best state of mind/consciousness:

  • Focus on what you are grateful for.
  • Focus on what you can control.
  • And focus on the present.

 Anything else will put you on a lower scale of consciousness. Remember the consciousness scale in Power vs Force?

Any of the FORCE consciousness levels means that your focus is not in the “correct” pattern.

You can focus on the FORCE levels, it is your choice. But those will not get you into a place where synchronicities fly off the shelf!! It is a mindset shift.

The Ultimate Life Changing Challege

The 30-day anomalous challenge! It transformed my world in magic fashion. Seriously!

 In my opinion, the Anomalous Challenge is much like Artist Dates from the Book The Artist Way by Julia Cameron. The Artist Date is a once-weekly, festive, solo expedition to explore something that interests you. The Artist Date need not be overtly “artistic”– think mischief more than mastery. Artist Dates fire up the imagination. They spark whimsy.

The Anomalous Challenge and The Artist Dates are just ways to get you out of your comfort zone. It actually reprograms your brain - in magic fashion. But you knew I was going to say this.

In late 2019 I started recording videos of myself in my journal. I knew one day I wanted to become a public speaker and YouTube influencer. But I hated being on camera. <- This was actually a very limiting belief I had. After about 10 days of doing the videos in my journal, I started recording actual videos. However, it wasn’t until March...

13 Tips To Improve Your Strength Training

Let's talk about Strength Training today. These 13 tips apply to everyone but I want to focus on those of us who are 40, 50, 60, 70+. You got this!
 
1. Do a light cardio warm-up before strength training to help prevent injury and post-workout soreness.
 
2. Proper form is more important than the number of reps; use a mirror to check your form. This is what mirrors are for in the gym, not for vanity purposes!
 
3. If you want to see results faster, do at least three strength-training sessions per week.
 
4. Save time and burn more calories by doing supersets, working opposing muscle groups back-to-back, and moving quickly from one exercise to the next without resting. This is also called circuit training.
 
5. Don't just lift dumbbells. Explore all types of equipment including resistance bands, kettlebells, stability balls, medicine balls, and barbells, as well as moves that require no equipment at all like push-ups and free squats. These are...

The Best Mask for Exercise

I know I don't like it either but it is required that you wear a mask while working out now. I actually got in trouble for pulling my mask off while doing the stairs at Planet Fitness. Since that day they have allowed you to remove your mask while doing very strenuous exercises like stair climbing.

As a Certified Fitness Trainer, I do not recommend wearing a mask at all during exercise due to the risk of hyperventilation.  However, it is required due to COVID. And I respect that. 

I have found a mask that is cool and comfortable and most importantly, breathable. It allows maximum breathing as a mask will allow. I still do not wear mine during extreme exercise.

Here is a link to it on Amazon. I have stocked up on these as I wear one at work and now it is required everywhere. It is only kind to respect the rules without complaining folks!

Are You Resisting Time?

"Time, it is only your resistance to it that makes you measure it." -Abraham Hicks

 How do you resist time? Statements like:
  • It's going to be a long day.
  • Looking forward to Friday.
  • Can't wait for my vacation.
  • I have to work until 5:30 and it's only 2:00.
  • Monday is here already?
All of the previous statements resist time.
 
What about the things you enjoy? Did you know that is also resistance to time?
  • Weekends fly by.
  • I wish I could stop time while I am on vacation.

Resistance to what 'is' can speed up time as well.

A wise person once taught me how to release that resistance to time.
 
Here is how you can do that:
  • Have you ever watched water boil?
  • It takes a while for it to boil if you are watching it.
  • "A watched pot never boils." is that statement.
 Well, if you want to speed time up, stop the resistance or stop watching the water boil. 

If you want to slow time down watch your water boil - or pay attention to every little thing.

Trust that everything...

All Truths Are Half-Truths

All truths are half-truths. -The Kybalion
 
 
When I first heard this I had to think about it for several days. But consider the options it opens up. 
 
It helps to understand others and be more compassionate. When we realize that our truth is not 100% fact it can help when talking to others.  
 
More words of wisdom: "I already knew that." "I disagree." Do not serve you.
 
We live in a time where there is a lot of fear in the air. Look at this diagram:
 
Where do you fit on this scale? How are you feeling right now?
 
This is from the book Power vs Force by Dr. David Hawkins
 
 
 
Power is always an option but it depends on your truth.
  
It is best to be proactive, not reactive.
 

  • It is up to you to decide what you consider to be true. Remember all truths are half truths. But how does that truth make you feel? Consider that.Proactive thoughts come from a place of power, Thoughts...
