When we think of the whole self-love thing we often are focused on the heart and feelings. Which is rightly so. Love is a feeling thing. It is heart-based and felt throughout the body. As opposed to a funny feeling we experience in our heads. Although love and light-headedness do go together on occasions. When we talk about self-love we are talking less about hormones and swooning ourselves, or buying ourselves romantic gifts to be opened by ourselves while we have a candlelight dinner by ourselves. Don’t get me wrong, the gifts and romantic dinner sound like fun, but let’s get back to this question of ‘what role does the mind play in self-love?’
Picture this. Two people born in two different cities. Two different parents. Two different sets of beliefs installed. Two very different behaviours at play in the family environment. Two different schools. Two different groups of friends and influences. Two very different life experiences. Two different physical appearances. Two different interests, talents, and hobbies. I could go on, but I am sure you get the picture.
Now here is the big question: What are the chances that when these two people connect they will think, feel and behave in exactly the same way?
If your answer was anything other than NONE or VERY UNLIKELY then you definitely need to give me a call and we definitely need to chat. So we agree (apart from the people calling me shortly) that the chances of two people from two different places, families and life experiences having exactly the same values, beliefs, skills, mindsets, perspectives, outlooks, etc. is very very low.
‘Improve Your Relationships. LOVE Your Life.’ with Carl Massy. Last night I (Carl) had a wonderful opportunity to present at a retreat in Ubud, Bali on one of my favourite subjects…RELATIONSHIPS. It started off with a very applicable quote by one of the leaders in peak performance (and how to have a fulfilling life), Anthony Robbins.
He made the statement that, “The quality of your life is directly proportional to the quality of the relationships in your life.” This is SO true. And why it is so important to understand more about getting the most from the relationships you have, becoming the person you have the potential to become, and understanding some of the simple strategies and tips that will make a profound difference in your life.
In the near future I will be sharing the presentation as a webinar, so that more people can benefit from the very valuable lessons and examples I shared as a result of my own experiences (some appeared like disasters at the time but were beautiful life lessons), my studies and working with a number of coaching clients over the years.
