Tony Robbins Reveals “The Greatest Secret EVER!”

Ok, I have literally just finished watching this video and this has literally just sparked the motivation and desire for change. I honestly don’t think I am the same person after I watched. I think this is something that everyone needs to see and learn. Thank you Mr. Robbins for sharing your light with the world and allowing is to learn from you. I recommend that you all have a watch of this and if it doesn’t make you think differently about some part of your life then, I will gladly eat my shorts. But if you are about to watch this make sure you have a pen and paper (or phone) handy to take some notes because trust me you are going to want to.

As I was watching I couldn’t help take some notes of my own. So if your in a bit of a rush and can’t find the time to sit down and watch hopefully these notes I took can summarise Tonys talk and expose the key points to you. You can see these notes  below so you can take a look.

There’s Something About Ellen

500px-Ellen

Ellen, Ellen, Ellen.

There is something about Ellen DeGeneres that just makes me so very happy. This is a woman who I would literally swim oceans for. I don’t understand why there aren’t more people like her in this world. If you don’t know who this woman is then you SERIOUSLY need to get out from under that rock that you are clearly living under.  Just bring you up to speed with who she is and what she does let me quickly go over everything Ellen.

So firstly she started out as a stand up comedian way back in the 80’s. Then in the 90’s she starred in her own self-titled sitcom from 1994 (the year I was born) right through to ’98.  During the fourth season her sitcom Ellen in 1997, DeGeneres came out publicly as a lesbian in an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show. In my opinion it seems that Ellen DeGeneres really came into her own after she stood in her truth and owned it. Many of my generation (the 90’s babies) will probably recognise her from ‘Finding Nemo’ where she played the amnesic loveable blue fish that goes by the name of Dory. This was where I was first introduced to Ellen and I must say it was love and first .. sound? She was bubbly, energetic and fun, and for me, little miss Dory stole that movie. It appears that Pixar agreed with me, because in the year 2016 a WHOLE movie dedicated to the character of Dory is going to be out in cinemas everywhere and this movie is going to be titled ‘Finding Dory’ and Ellenhas agreed to come back and play that role I am just so excited by that! She was a judge on the hit TV show American Idol, she has hosted both the Academy Awards and the Primetime Emmy’s. She has won thirteen Emmys and numerous other awards for her work and charitable efforts.

OK, so now your up to speed I really want you to understand why it is that Ellen is such an inspiration of mine. to mark her 1500th show the Ellen team put together a little montage of all of her best bits and this video truly embodies everything about Ellen which I just love and adore. So here is a challenge for you, try to see if you can make it to the end of this video without experiencing any kind of positive emotion. Take a look.

As you can see from this video she is such a positive force of energy in this universe. Every day I am going to strive to be a little more like her and find the joy in every thing I do and bring laughter and love everywhere I go, I hope that you do the same.

After seeing how well she is doing and observing how successful her show has become I began to wonder why her show is doing so great and why does everyone, including myself want to tune in and watch her. I do not watch Ellen on the daily, because her show does not broadcast over here but from the many clips that I have seen all over the internet, Ellen has yet to deliver any real ground breaking interviews. So if she isn’t delivering any REAL top quality journalistic style interviews what is making her so popular. Well I will tell you, her success is solely based on her kind nature her giving spirit and that beautiful smile, she makes us  laugh with happiness and cry with joy. Ellen is just being Ellen and THAT is the key to her success and the key to yours and by you being more of yourself. Thank you Ellen for teaching me that.

World Kindness Day

Hands on a globe

Today is World Kindness Day – an annual day launched by ‘Secret Millionaire’ David Jamilly and UK Kindness Movement founder Louise Burfitt-Dons in a bid to make acts of kindness a greater part of everyday life in the UK. (The pair are currently lobbying the United Nations to recognise it as an official national day.)

What kind act have you done or will you do to help others or what has someone done for you?

World Kindness Day is exactly what it sounds like: a day dedicated to kindnesses, big and small.The holiday is the project of The World Kindness Movement, and can trace its start to the birth of the World Kindness Movement in Tokyo, in 1997. The day is observed in several countries around the world, according to Wikipedia, including Australia, Italy, Singapore, Canada, Japan and the United Arab Emirates.This year’s World Kindness Day falls not even a week after Typhoon Hainan devastated the Philippines, leaving more than 1,500 people dead. If you’re looking to keep the kindnesses going, the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation (http://www.randomactsofkindness.org  ) maintains a list of “kindness ideas,” which includes cleaning up graffiti, donating used books to your local library, and tutoring school children.

Observance is simple: be kind; or, even better, do something kind. Will you celebrate?

I think that this positively the most incredible idea for official national day that there is (aside from Christmas, Valentines and the other obvious). I do think this is only one of several days in a three hundred and sixty-five day year that can be devoted to pure kindness. I believe we owe it to ourselves with all the war memorials and the infinite moments of silence that we have to endure, in my opinion we owe it to ourselves to just be kind to one another and enjoy life. I am not saying it is not important to remember the holocaust and appreciate the lives lost during the wars I understand these are very important but WKD (World Kindness Day) will inspire people young and old and give us an excuse to just be cool with each other in a world where everyone seems to forget that we are all in this together. People seem to be so wrapped up in their own lives I think that having this national day would encourage people to step outside of their shells and look around them and see what they can do to bring a little happiness into someone else’s life. It does not even have to be a huge thing.

Kindness is the act or the state of being kind – ie. marked by goodness and charitable behaviour, mild disposition, pleasantness, tenderness and concern for others. It is known as a virtue, and recognized as a value in many cultures and religions.

 

I remember one time I was have THE WORST day, I am sure you have had them to. You know the ones where things just don’t seem to get any worse, you wake up on the wrong side of the bed, your room is a tip, you wear your scruffiest clothes, the weather is not on your side, you have puddles in your shoes, you have a headache, your phone just keeps going off,  and people (who aren’t really doing anything wrong) just get on your nerves. Well I was having one of this days and I was walking home in the pouring rain and I walked past this guy who was waiting at a bus stop. He was wearing some torn up jeans and a Jack Wills hoodie that was drenched through and  he looked straight into my eyes and smiled at me and said, “How are you?”. Now I know you where probably expecting some deep profound moment, but it was just the idea of a stranger who doesn’t know me and has no idea who I am, smiling at me with genuine kindness and compassion it completely turned my day around and I was, from that moment on, a lot happier. So something as simple and a genuine smile can completely change someones day. Being there to listen to someone, help out the elder with their bags, if you see someone struggling don’t hesitate to lend a helping hand, go see that family member who you have been avoiding, call that friend you have been feuding with and just bury the hatchet. You might as well, what have you REALLY got to lose.. its World Kindness Day.

Now go forth and be kind to one another!

The Guide To Change … by Iyanla Vanzant

IYANLA1. HAVE A VISION.

You can’t achieve something if you don’t know what it is! Maybe you want to start thinking more positively. The vision will give you something to focus on and writing it down will help you to stay in track

2. GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION TO BE DIFFERENT…

from how you’ve been in the past and what you think is expected of you. Answer the call from within to connect with what is true for YOU!

3. BEGIN WHERE YOU ARE, WITH WHAT YOU HAVE.

When you start a workout a trainer will tell you, “If you can’t touch your toes touch your knees, if you can’t touch your knees go for your hips.” So do what you can. And then…

4. PUSH

When your mind says”No!” you say yes (No, you can’t think positively about that plane train delay? Yes – 2 hours to yourself! – yes, yes you can.)

5. LIGHTEN UP YOUR ENLIGHTENMENT 

Transformation doesn’t have to be deep, dark and mysterious. If you screw up fine – laugh at yourself, learn and move on.

Welcome

Hello and welcome to ‘The Soul Journal’.

With all the constant bad news that is published each and everyday, the stabbings, the shootings, the robberies, the bombings, the kidnappings so on and so forth, this is a place where none of that exists.This is a place where, even if it is just for a little while, you can escape all of the negativity the world is seems to be force feeding us.

Aaryn

This idea has been brewing in my mind for a long time. My name is Aaryn-James. Since I was young I enjoyed watching the news and learning about the world what was happening within it from science to politics and technology to health. As I grew up I noticed more and more that all the news that is being broadcasted and published on a daily basis all seems to be negative and showing humanity in a less than pleasing light. The more I watch the news and read newspapers I begin to lose my faith in humanity, finding myself doubting whether any true goodness does in fact exist in this world.

For those of you that know me personally I am not a very negative person I like to think of myself as quite a positive human being. I do see some positivity and good things happening in the world, but they don’t seem to have a light shining on them. That is the exact purpose of this blog I intend to use the tools at my disposal to spread as much positivity as I possibly can ..I truly believe that is my responsibility as a human being.

So throughout this blog you will be seeing some uplifting stories and something that has brought me or my friends and family happiness in the hopes that it will also bring you some joy, you can share it with your close ones and then so on.

And if you ever want to get in touch with me personally if you have a suggestion or comment  or a story you want to share with me you can email me directly on soul_journal@outlook.com and I would love for you to get in touch with me.

It takes but one positive thought … to overpower an entire army of negative thoughts

-Robert H. Schuller

Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll starts having positive results
