Inspiring you to: © Be the Best You Can Be! MBS

Ah, March - the perfect month to make a fresh start to your life! When Spring is adding zest to the very air we breathe you can choose to go that extra mile. But how? What? Here is a suggestion: You could simply opt for a change of attitude to a more positive one that serves you better. This switch is a great way to grow - to develop your whole being.

"Developing the self is the most fun thing you can do in life. It's a spontaneous experience of joy."
      #Dr Deepak Chopra

Personal growth is a choice. Actually, if you think about it, our life is made up of the sum of all our choices up to this moment. Hmm. That may set your mind on the path of: Well, when I made one choice such and such happened and it's working well   /  but when I made another choice I didn't like what happened and it seems like I'm stuck with it now. The great thing is that if we are not happy with some of our choices... we may well be able to choose again!

"You've got a lot of choices. If getting out of bed in the morning is a chore and you're not smiling on a regular basis, try another choice."
      #Steven D Woodhull


Admittedly, change is not always an easy thing. However, choosing to change, to grow, is the first and most crucial step towards making it happen.

"That definite decision, the universe conspires to make it happen."
      #Ralph Waldo Emerson


A lesson in avoiding criticism
Okay, let's get specific by looking at one very common problem: Criticism. Being on the receiving end of criticism can be a very painful experience.

Do you attract a lot of criticism? If you do, using the following Blossom Tool could change that.

Blossom Tool
Stop criticising... yourself!

When you stop criticising yourself and start choosing more supportive thoughts you will stop attracting criticism from others. (Wow! What a lot of heartache and aggravation that will save.) This is because people's behaviour towards us tends to mirror our own.

Choosing to put aside criticism will take you a giant step towards your best self. Choose to: Be the Best You Can Be!

#Happy Valentine's Day!

You do not have to be in love to enjoy Valentine’s Day! Instead of hiding away feeling guilty because you are single or your partner doesn’t thrill you anymore, you can use this day as the starting point of a new deep and meaningful love story. Call it: Loving Yourself!

There is an old jokey line that goes: ‘I love me who do you love?’ but that is definitely not what I am talking about here!  

#Dr Deepak Chopra, personal improvement guru and bestselling author of #The Path To Love has made a study of the above. “Most people think of love merely in romantic terms,” he said. “However, love is an experience of complete unity between body, mind, spirit and environment. When you have that unity you experience spontaneous self-love.”

When people hear ‘self-love’ they may interpret that as selfishness. In this context though, this actually has the opposite meaning. “By ‘self’ I don’t mean the ego,” Chopra explains. “I mean the state of being where you feel love towards everyone.”

 If you are alone you may take note that Chopra says that feeling this kind of love attracts love. “The key to experiencing love is to be comfortable with your own self,” he advises. “But,” he continues, “most people are uncomfortable with themselves. They don’t feel attractive and if you don’t feel attractive to yourself it’s going to be very difficult to attract others.”

The main problem is that many people focus on the superficial: ‘how do I look on the outside?’  But Chopra points to a different approach. He feels that we need to accept ourselves as we are, and puts a special emphasis on embracing our weaknesses. “Seeing yourself as a whole is the first step towards seeing yourself as a truly attractive person,” he maintains. “You’re only human. When you see that the same is true for every person you’ve ever met (as well as every media darling celebrated in our society) you will gain a sense of comfort with both the most attractive and least attractive.

“The closer you come to seeing the appeal in all people, the closer you come to God’s perspective. Equality is the first step towards acceptance and acceptance is love.”
