Have you ever shared your dream with someone only to be discouraged?
Have you ever been so certain about the direction that you want to take only to be told by someone you trust that you are going to fail?
If you answered yes, to any of the above questions then you understand how it feels when someone tries to blow out your light….damn your enthusiasm.
Apparently, it’s human nature for one to damn someone else’s light if theirs isn’t shinning. Remember that misery loves company, and if you are in company with people who have given up on their dreams, don’t expect them to inspire you.
Note that people who feel insecure about their own qualities will attempt to make others feel that way. They will devise mental plots to get you to start doubting yourself.
Furthermore, if one is stuck in a dark place for a while, understand that they have become accustomed to the darkness. They don’t want to experience anything different. Their brains have settled, and it normally takes some mental and emotional work for them to snap out of their illusion and start shinning their own light. Therefore, if you share your dream with someone in that mental state, be sure to receive discouragement.
“If one is stuck in a dark place for a while, understand that they have become accustomed to the darkness”
The next question is, what do you do if someone discourages you?
The answer lies in the very reason why you want to pursue your goal. Your why, should matter more than what anyone else says about you or your goals. Besides, what others think or say about you is their business: that’s their model of the world. Whatever one is projecting in their mind has nothing to do with you. Your business is what’s brewing in your own mind. Therefore, you can’t let naysayers retard your decision to move forward with your dream. Remember, no one but you has the power to put out your light. You are the master of your enthusiasm and your inner thrill, and it’s really up to you to keep shinning no matter what.
“No one but you has the power to put out your light.”
In this video, I share a few tips that you can use to keep your light shinning. The tips are simple and I’m certain that you already know about them. However, sometimes it helps when we are reminded that the answers and solutions we seek for are always within us.

Last year on March 1st, 2014, I introduced the Global Worry Free Day; a 12 hours’ worry-fast that begins from 7.00 a.m. to 7.00 p.m: your time, your region.
The day is intended to remind humanity that worrying is equivalent to rocking in a lazy chair. You are doing something but it ain’t taking you anywhere.
This year’s theme is “A stress Free Mind.” I will be sharing a tip everyday to help you start reprogramming your mind for more peace.
Take time and laugh.
I came across some of the benefits of laughter from mayoclinic.com. They are listed below. Please note that the list is not exclusive.
- Laughter lowers blood pressure.
- Laughter reduces stress hormone levels.
- Laughter is an easy and fun abs workout.
- Laughter Improves cardiac health.
- Laughter Boosts T cells.
- Laughter triggers the release of endorphins.
- Laughter produces a general sense of well-being.
Below are some links you can access and give yourself a hearty laugh. I dare you not to laugh. Come-on, stop taking yourself so seriously.:)

Remember, the more we focus on positive things, the easier the negativity dissolves.
Please spread the world. The Global Worry Free day is coming up March 1st, 7.00 a.m. – 7.00 p.m. wherever you are. Let’s team up to infuse our world with positive vibes. Every step we take makes a difference.
Sending you love and light.
