Working And Living Are Two Different Things (Part 2 of 2)

Do not dare to miss to first part.

 

Continuation:

When someone asks you to take an hour out of work to do something during the day, tell them that you’ll have to make that hour up at the end of the day, so they shouldn’t expect you out of the office until an hour later than usual.

Don’t Do Chores.

It can be tempting to do laundry or dishes when there’s a load of them to do and work seems slow. But don’t give it to it during your working day. Chores eat up an amazing amount of time.

Resist the temptation by wearing better clothes than you usually would when you’re working. Not a suit, but something business-casual that you wouldn’t really be willing to wash dishes in.

Have a Business Phone Line.

You need a phone line that’s just for business to let clients leave messages when you’re not in the office. Say exactly that in the message: ‘I’m not in the office right now, but please leave your name and number and I’ll get back to you’.

Whatever you do, don’t be tempted to take business calls after-hours. Nor give out your personal number to business contacts.

This is a sure-fire way to never stop working. Turn off the ringer on your business phone when you leave the office for the day.

With Children, All Bets are Off.

If you have children at home during the day, it can be very difficult to maintain a sensible work pattern. They will come and bother you at every opportunity, because they miss you and want to see you.

They’ll even cause trouble just to get you to sort it out. They wanted to come and bother you at your office job too, but they had no way of getting there.

So what can you do when there are children in the house? After all, it’s harsh to just ignore them, isn’t it?

The best answer I’ve found is to hire a babysitter, who can keep the kids entertained while you work. It could get expensive, but it shouldn’t be for long, right?

Working And Living Are Two Different Things (Part 1 of 2)

When you’re at home all the time, people have a way of giving you everything to do, with no regard for your job. It can be very hard indeed to keep your family life separate from your business when you work at home.

In fact, this is one of the most common reasons home businesses fail. Their owners come away all too glad to get back to the corporate grindstone.

Don’t be driven away from home business, here’s what you need to do to keep your family at bay:

Work Time, Home Time.

Make a schedule for when you’re going to work and when you’re not, and stick to it. This doesn’t have to be inflexible. It’s very silly to only work nine to five every day. But it still really needs to be there.

Without a plan, you’re inevitably going to go too far one way or the other. Either work far too much or nowhere near enough. You might find it best to a new plan at the start of each month or week, so that you can still respond to changes in circumstances.

Yes, I know it can be difficult to draw clear lines between family time and work time. Especially if your family is around for some of the hours that you want to be working. The only thing I can say to you is that it’s important to keep on trying.

The moment you give up everything’s going to come crashing down. Whatever you do, don’t let your family anywhere near your office space.

Fit Errands Around Work.

People will obviously be upset if you absolutely refuse to run their errands. Is it really so much trouble to run down to the bank when you’re at home all day? But you can’t let them take away hours from work. You should make your response automatic.

Do not miss out the first, second and third part.

 

Continuation:

 

It is important to limit your own responsibilities to prevent emotions like lack of self-worth etc. Remain present and in attendance to your own needs first and you will always give others your best, automatically.

You are not your accomplishments

Understand that you are not your accomplishments. What you do and don’t do, your beliefs, ideas, possessions, are nothing to do with who you really are. They are the baggage you have picked up along the way.

They are nothing to do with the spiritual you who wants to feel good. Stay connected to peace. Lose your ego, and take this attitude of freedom with you in your everyday life.

The journey is the destination

Many times we say “If only I had x, then I would be happy”. Or “I’ll be happy when I’ve got this…”

As you go into the world and experience the contrast of your likes and dislikes, through your everyday experiences, so a new want is born. Then comes struggle in the journey towards its manifestation.  It contains all the stresses and strains you wish to rid yourself of. Understand this: you’ll never get it done.

The journey itself towards your wants shows you new elements of contrast.  It got new possibilities, new likes and dislikes, that change and alter your path. Thus your job here is not to get caught up in the end result but to ensure you enjoy the journey along the way, regardless of your goal.

Your everyday journey contains all the same underlying experiences, emotions, and full-body feelings that you seek from your end goal. The journey is the destination. So enjoy it.

Bringing it all together

So how do we overcome the various stress blocks to pull greater peace and abundance towards us? Once the biggest unconscious blocks are resolve, your intentions, ambitions, passion will feel that much free to move towards you, automatically and effortlessly.

Circumstances and people appear in your life from nowhere and events begin aligning themselves, as the universe conspires with you, to realize your passion.

Secrets For Stress-Free Living (Part 3 of 4)

Do not miss out the first and second part.

 

Continuation:

 

Being in the present moment is the only way you can make an emotional connection to what it is that you want. Therefore begin the process of it becoming attracted to you in future present moments.

This type of emotional alignment cannot be achieved when your thoughts are in the future or past. “But how much do I need to be in the present moment? I have all this stuff to do.”

You must be in the present moment to have enough fully-loaded, pleasurable, positive full body feelings. Being present will begin the process of its automatic attraction to you. Living with your thoughts at a future or past moment in time, is entirely redundant in the process of being free of stress, and attracting what you want into your life.

You can never be enough to

You can never be sorry enough to change this problem situation. It is only when you love yourself that you have that love to radiate to others. When you are allowing the abundance to flow to you, then have the ability to gift it to others.

Giving your energy in any form to others, is the fastest route to the emotional poorhouse. Whether it is love, forgiveness, agreement, or any energy, when your cup is not already brimming over. If you want to help others, you must first help yourself.

Others easily see through empty gestures, compliments, or favors; and, such gestures only hide you from your own emotional impoverishment/malnutrition. They are not useful, and serve no purpose in enhancing your life or others’.

Be selfish enough to line up with your intentions

This is important because it is only in your thriving that you have anything to offer others. If your own energy tank is not full, you have no business looking after the tanks of others.

Please read the wonderful first part.

 

Continuation:

Happiness is your meta-experience when thinking about something that brings you such pleasure. Happiness cannot be experienced by the senses directly, only pleasure can.

Focus your life on having more now-moment pleasure experiences, rather than accumulating reasons or things to be happy about.

Stay connected to source

Find your own personal way to stay connected to your higher consciousness (the feeling you). For many this is meditation, music, song, etc. Why are we so attracted to parks? water? nature? wildlife and animals? We have awareness on some level that we are part of a much greater collected consciousness, something else, something higher than us.

Some people may be partially disconnected from it, but you can never fully disconnect from it. Notice that the word emotion is e + motion. Notice the connections of levels even on a linguistic level. Did you know that elephants are one of the very few creatures other than humans who cry tears of emotion? And when was the last time you saw an elephant running?

They adapt or has the ability to release emotions from tears in the same way humans do. People are attracted to source because we recognize that’s where we want to be. We want to have those feelings, we want to experience that energy. Energy, just by being in its presence, makes us feel better about ourselves.

Live in the moment

We only have access to our full personal power in the present moment. This is practicing the art; it’s a habit to be developed, a life-skill. The extent, to which you are connecting, on some unconscious level, either into the past or into the future, is the extent to which you rob yourself of your present power.

You are not going to be experiencing what it is that you want; therefore you are moving your emotional point of attraction, into negative territory.
