A new year, a new pair of eyes seeing the world!

 “While every year starts with a new beginning, why not for a change, let’s see the world with a pair of new eyes?” 

Look through different pair of eyes

2012 is heading to an end and 2013 is almost a blink away. What are your plans on celebrating 2012 achievements and on starting goals for 2013?

Remember not too long ago, we were setting our goals for 2012 (Resolutions) Project and now it’s time we reflect on how much we have achieved and by-passed. The goals were there, because they were important to us and bought us a sense of purpose in our daily life. They constantly encourage and challenge us that we may be the persons we want to be and be a better self today than yesterday! We celebrate and be proud of our achievements!

On the other hand, where we underachieved, we try to understand the underlying root causes and our deepest obstacles, with bravery, we face our weaknesses or darkness without self-judgment and accept who we are with kindness.

It is very controversial subject, should we accept who we are and embrace ourselves as we are or should we continuously strike to seek personal excellence and be better each single day. This is a question only for you; only you will know and you decide. What’s important is, no matter what is your choice, be yourself entirely. If you want to run ahead, go for it~ if you want to take a longer rest, so be it. 2013 is your year for being truly and kindly to yourself.

Every year after the new year count down, we start with ’1st January’. It’s the first date into another year, decade or hundred years. You may already have something new (Christmas specials) or hoping for something new and exciting to happen in 2013 or just simply want a new start and a different year. It’s a great challenge for you and all of us to view our existing environments, especially relationships with our spouse, children, parents, colleagues…etc, and with ourselves with different perspectives and with a new pair of eyes of your own choice.

‘A new pair of eyes of your own choice’ means you take off the glasses you have been wearing in the past years and put on a new pair. If your old pair of eyes used to look at yourself with critical self-judgment, then with the new pair, you’d no longer doing so; if your old pair always showed you the self of a broken heart and powerless soul, let the new pair shows you the abundance of love and spirit full mind. When you start to see yourself, people around you and things with your new eyes, new things appear!

So before you leave with the new pair of eyes, answer yourself the following questions:

  • what are the 3 aspects you would like your new eyes to see? Example: always the truth, the honesty, the positive side, your inner feelings, others’ feelings, the fun and creativity, the gentleness and kindness…etc.
  • what would you not let yourself to be blind by?

I have my pair ready! Waiting for yours, so we see the world together with the new pair of eyes!!

Food habit, track down what you eat. (2012.W46)

(Ending Sunday 18th November 2012)

This weekly challenge will be focusing on the food we eat. I won’t ask you to eat less sugar, or more vegetables, but just to write down what you eat. Quite simple isn’t it?

Few people are aware of what they eat and their pattern, so by writing down all the food we eat, it allow us to understand better our food intake habit.

You can think you don’t need to write down what you eat to remember it. But most of the time we underestimate the quantity we eat and easily forget the small snacks or treats we have.The fact of writing down everything we eat a least one time a day for one week have made people to lose weight. And no other action was asked from them. This research was funded by the National Institutes of Health. And they find out that after one week of food tracking many obese people found out some of their bad food intake patterns. For example it can be the urge to snack at 10am. Knowing that, some people now keep healthy food like apple of banana on their desks for this time. This simple action breaks this particular habit resulting in weight loses.

Other people begin to plan in advance their future meal. Doing so, they replace bad meals with healthy ones. Many others behaviours were changed, and the doctor never made any suggestion.

Having a clear understanding of food habit allow the subjects to surgically target the time, place and other trigger that makes us made bad choice about food. So we can replace bad habit with good one with relatively little effort and for great result.

After six months of study, people who kept daily food records had lost twice as much weight as everyone else.

You have few pounds to lose? Do the weekly challenge and test the easiest way to lose weight!

Challenge: Write down everything you eat a least one time a day for one week
Extra Challenge: Share the habit(s) you have seen and how you replace it.
Goals: Self-awareness of food habit
Time required: 10 mins a days for 7 days
Energy level: Low
Preparation: Pen and paper

Self-focused questions “How am I doing lately?”

In my Day 30 – How you love yourself in the coming 90 days? Today’s home work, end of Sep final updates, a quote of encouragement on Sep 28: “No matter how busy or tired I am, I am committed to take at least 1 hour a week conversing with myself.” And exactly what topics do I talk to myself?

An important question for all of us before all other questions I asked myself is –>

Do I spend enough time with myself, listen to my inner voices and have peace within? 

We all need certain levels of assurance and reassurance to ourselves (that we are being oneself, living the life the way we want and we know what we are doing) and security (where not to worry about getting hurt or suffer, be as free and safe within) in our lives, both physically and mentally, especially the later. These two provide a sense of stability and peace anchoring within ourselves, steady the our inner being, even when our outer surrounding is full of chaos.

The level of assurance and security needed may vary accordingly to our backgrounds, past experiences and most present situations. The source of the providers often we think is and count on others and in fact, we ourselves are the ultimate source. It is for our own well-being and benefits to understand self well, take the responsibility and be our own source provider.

The below is a list of questions I am asking myself on regular basis: (Just be very honest with yourself and not to judge yourself; pay attention to the first answer in mind, it is often the most true reflection of your current thoughts. Be gentle and keep in mind this is to spend quality time with self, not to criticize self)

  • How am I feeling lately? (both physically and mentally)
  • Am I happy? Truly happy? And why is that? May I do something about it? (replacing ‘happy’ with ‘content’, ‘satisfied’, ‘enjoying life’, ‘sad’, ‘angry’, ‘upset’, ‘tired’, ‘stressed’, ‘worried’, ‘calm’, ‘focused’, ‘determined’, ‘relaxed’, ‘appreciative’, ‘creative’, ‘healthy’, ‘demotivated’, ‘judgmental’, ‘blaming’, ‘fearless’, ‘resentful’, ‘growing’, ‘honest’, ‘being loved’, ‘loving’, ‘avoiding’, ‘free spirit’, ‘having hard time’, ‘running out of time’, ‘energetic’, ‘inspired’, ‘lonely’ … etc. you may go through few emotion adjectives as above or select the one best describes you and dig into it.) 
  • How far am I from my personal goals? (Do I have a personal goal?)
  • How is my work vs. life balance at the moment?
  • How have I changed emotionally and physically from last month? (How is my well-being?) 
  • What can I do differently for myself next month?
  • What did I do last month that I am proud of? (Take time to appreciate how good I am!)
  • Am I growing or learning or enriching myself? (Developing my potential…)
  • What is(are) my priority(ies) in the coming month? (take 1 month at a time – this helps to regain focus on what is important and close to your heart) 
  • What makes me happy? (and grant yourself to do that :P what’s the wait?)
  • If I win 1 million dollars, what would I do and feel? (this question is to encourage dreaming~ every dream with realizable action plans => goals coming true!!)

The purpose of the above question is to constantly be aware of our own thoughts and feelings. Many people who are stressed often neglect the early warnings that are sent out from their mind and bodies. If we are all aware of early signals and having regular check up or conversations with self, life will be much happier and more relaxed!!

While you taking time surfing on the net and reading nice articles, why not take another 5 minutes to answer the above question for yourselves, having a little intimacy with self!!

Self-development 101

 “The greatest enemy of tomorrow’s success is today’s success” by Rick Warren

I have to admit, I have been complacent with my August Completed – 30 Days on How to love your partner and switching myself completely off from the areas of bucket list challenges writing and self-disciplining to areas of focusing on relaxation and self-indulgence :)

With end of September final updates and reading of “Self-improvement 101” by John C Maxwell. I have woken up from my prolonged self-indulgence and procrastination; realizing that I have been spending lots less time on personal growth. I felt like as if I am standing on an escalator going down, but I am trying to go up; and the moment I stop walking up, I am being taken down by the escalator to the bottom. I did enjoy my own satisfaction and relaxation, but at the same time being fooled by it.

Self-development will not happen by itself for us; it requires dedicated intention and efforts. How much we are willing to invest in ourselves is how much at the end of the day, we will harvest from ourselves. If there is an area of life you would like to develop further, let’s work on it for the coming month. Quoted from Earl Nightingale: “If a person will spend one hour a day on the same subject for five years, that person will be an expert on that subject.” Indeed, 1 hour a day for 5 years, that is 1,825 hours in total, roughly equals to 228 working days (assuming 8 hours per day). It’s like a year of short term study (advance enrichment). I am now amazed that 1 hour a day may turned into something sounds grand, even a second career development!

So, if there is something you would like to spend this 1 hour on? 

It’s not ‘time’ that we don’t have, it’s self-discipline. Once your goal is set (and it has to be your passion), then put yourself into a non-bargain-able daily hour program (refer below example, skip weekend if you want) and
Example: first select your to be developed area or subject (i.e. want to learn an instrument, want to be a life coach or learn photography…) and ENJOY the learning experience (not to be burden by it).

  • monday: read books or articles about it
  • tuesday: take relevant lessons or workshops
  • wednesday: make notes, reflect and integrate knowledge from monday & tuesday
  • thursday: field search (via Internet or stores…) on special techniques, trends and what are being offered on the market
  • friday: put into practices

If you don’t have something in mind, it’s never to late to find out more about yourself and something you are interested!

Final Sep update on My 5 self-love actions for the next 90 days (Part 3/3)

Sorry for the delay! Finally it’s here! :)

Day 30 – Today’s home work: Create a self-love plan of 5 action items for the coming 90 days (July, August, September) The below is my 5 self-love actions with final month, end of Sep updates: (my end of August updates and end of July updates)

(1) Read 3 self-love books (1 book by the end of each month)

3rd book checked - Self-improvement 101” by John C Maxwell.

Additional book read: “Social Intelligence: The new science of human relationships” by Daniel Goleman.

(2) One statement per day (30 by each month end)

      • Sep 1 - It’s better to be well prepared than sorry.
      • Sep 2 – There is nothing more important than embracing and standing firmly for certain family values. I am making the changes for a better family life
      • Sep 3 – The easiest and fastest way to change the world is to change ourselves.
      • Sep 4 – Do not let others to decide or to disturb on how I will live through my day today.
      • Sep 5 – Nothing is so urgent in life (don’t have to rush all the time), unless when life itself become urgent (facing life and death situation).
      • Sep 6 – Helping others is like having pollen and seeds spreading around, we never know what kind of flowers, fruits or outcomes it will bring. It is not so much about expecting any return, but rather not to underestimate the impacts that we bring on others. (I encourage myself keep on spreading the seeds of surprises!)

        • Sep 7 – When I start to focus on how much others do for me, I start to realize how little I do for others. 
        • Sep 8 – Loving self is an important life long subject; but we often forget to keep it in the daily program.
        • Sep 9 - Take 2-3 hours to do something I like regularly, i.e. per week, I feel much more with myself and  happy with myself.
        • Sep 10 – Self-improvement is meant for ‘self’, not for others.
        • Sep 11 – Type of life we are living in is reflected in the types of daily activities we do. (if want to change the type of life, we got to change the activities)

  • Sep 12 – if we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we are not really living.” by Gail Sheehy
  • Sep 13 – Growth is certainly a choice; no one says it is easy, but for sure rewarding!
  • Sep 14 – Focus on self-development, not self-fulfillment. (self-development is a bigger goal than self-fulfillment. Self-fulfillment is the by-product benefit of self-development)
  • Sep 15 - Anyone appears in our lives for a reason. I may not understand what is the reason right away, but I am willing to explore and learn more from them.
  • Sep 16 – Resting is preparing for the next heard work!
  • Sep 17 – Finding life purpose calling is not easy (especially we don’t listen to our hearts), but it will come when we start to pay attention.
  • Sep 18 – Sometimes what I think it is good for others may not be the case. Always double check with consideration.
  • Sep 19 – Within an interaction, how I react enrolls how other responses. (meaning if I want my boss to trust me that I am handling everything well, I need to first show my boss I am handling my boss well)
  • Sep 20 – Where I am being myself and expose myself, it does not mean I am weak and vulnerable. I just choose to let others to see the naked me. (don’t have to guess me)
  • Sep 21 – He who dares loving, trying and giving is really living!
  • Sep 22 – Managing self is easier than managing others; nevertheless, we like to manage others first.
  • Sep 23 – A winner knows how much he still has to learn, even when he is considered an expert by others; a loser wants to be considered as an expert before he has learned enough to know how little he knows. by Sydney Harris
  • Sep 24 – Live like there is no next month.
  • Sep 25 – It’s not ‘time’ that we don’t have, it’s self-discipline.
  • Sep 26 – Develop a plan, working toward according to the plan and discipline myself without any excuses.
  • Sep 27 – What is life like with a limited life with unfulfilled potentials?
  • Sep 28 – No matter how busy or tired I am, I am committed to take at least 1 hour a week conversing with myself (i.e.how I am feeling, how I have been, am I happy, how far am I from my personal goals, how is my life/work balance and so on).
  • Sep 29 - Always give self extra credit, support and courage to do things desired.
  • Sep 30 – “The greatest enemy of tomorrow’s success is today’s success” by Rick Warren

(3) Two hours of exercise per week (8.5 hours every month) 65% checked – took an hour every week during lunch time to do some fast walking around the block and 30 minutes stretching each night before going to bed. Certainly over the past 90 days, there were still room to improve; and I keep on telling myself to continue going ahead, not to let yesterday’s failure dis-encourages tomorrow’s success!

(4) Two activities per month that I would love to do with myself (2 activities to share each month) Checked! Take a good bath with oil, home made ice tea with candle and music :) Treat myself with world famous singer concert (Madonna’s concert)!!

(5) Save $100 per month for the thing that I always wanted ($100 more at the end of each month) Checked! Not only I have saved $300, a friend of mine has given me an iPAD as a gift! So wonderful~ it’s like when I start to accumulate wealth, wealth itself multiplies!!! (law of attraction?)

Completed – 30 Days on How to love your partner :)

30 Days to Love Our Partners!! We did it :) 

Dear Friends and Readers :)

After 30 Days on How to love yourself moreI have challenged myself on 30 Days on How to love your partner. It has been a great 30 days in my life and for my relationship with my partner. I have carried out the daily actions myself; some are quite challenging and requiring lots of space between my partner and I, some are easier and fun to do. We not only get to know each other much more in a deeper level, but also using the opportunities to make commitments embracing our differences and common goals in life. Both my partner and I have learnt a lot in this 30 days journey, I truly hope this mini-journey has brought and shared different perspectives of relationship, enriched and helped your relationship in any ways. 

Thank you all who read my posts, shared comments, gave feedback and liked what I believe :) Learning how to love is a lifelong journey, hope to see or hear from you again on the road.

I wish all of us all creating and profiting from the life we want and we create!

Love from Hsing/Cindy

Day 3 – Are you in the relationship for the right reasons?

The reasons and the purposes determine the mindset of how you behave, what you bring to your relationship and what you expect from your partner.

Ever ask yourself the reasons and the purposes you enter a relationship when it just starts? Is it due to ‘love’, ‘the fun together’, ‘crazy sex’, ‘the special connection’ or ‘a rebound situation’, ‘material enjoyments’ or … etc? Ever think about before enter a relationship, what could you and will you bring to contribute to the relationship? What do you expect your partner to deliver in the relationship consciously and subconsciously? For the married, was it obvious to you why you get married and what are you commit yourself into?

In the below video of Bryon Katie, “You are the love of your life” captioned the idea that the ultimate relationship is with ourselves (you provide and care for yourself), and the people around us, whatever they bring to our lives are just bonuses. Staying within a relationship helps us to learn more about self-love (hence to love others).

 

Most of the time, we just enter a relationship without thinking too much. We enjoy the moments, give what we have (often not even 100%), take what we want (sometimes we ask more than what’s being offered by our partner); when things go wrong (not as you wish for), just end the relationship and find another one. It’s less drastic in a marriage, but similar traces may be spotted; instead of leaving the marriage, one may emotionally withdraw, shift focus to work, children or have affairs.

If we are able to take a moment of quietness for ourselves in the beginning of a fanatic love or before making a marriage vow or even this present moment, think through:

  • Why do you want this relationship (hope no one forces you) and what you expect from or want to achieve in this relationship (i.e. life companionship, intimacy, excitements, great conversation…). If there are vast differences between yours and your partner’s purposes and expectations, consider taking some time to understand each other.
  • Are you able to bring and contribute what you expected into this relationship yourself, instead of seeking from your partner? Could you reduce the expectation of your partner to zero?

It’s not too late to review your current relationship now and think about the above. It helps to know what get you here the first place, how you may adjust yourself and your expectation (of the relationship and of your partner) and head where you want to go. If you are in the relationship for the wrong reasons (only you will know), everything else will follow in the wrong direction and you will not get what you want. Loving self and your partner is life journey of dedication and efforts; it may not be easy, but definitely very life enriching and rewarding.

Today I love my partner by: (share it aloud to your partner)

Removing my expectations of my partner to provide (for me) in the relationship, because I may provide to myself.

For your actions:

(1)    Find out the purposes and the reasons that I am in this relationship;

(2)    Understand what my expectations are for the relationship and what I will bring to the relationship instead of asking from my partner.

(3)    Devote and give myself 100% into the relationship; leaving no regrets.

30 Days on How to love your partner

Dear Friends and Readers,

After the previous launch of 30 Days on How to love yourself more, I have a great pleasure introducing this coming series of 30 Days on How to love your partner :)  

How our partners love us often reflect how we love them; how we love them is a reflection of how we love ourselves. We project ourselves, our beliefs, needs and wants in love relationship onto our partners both consciously and unconsciously, more than we are aware and knowing of.

I wish going through the coming 30 days together, we may reflect on our current relationship, existing values and behaviors in love (with self and our partners), as well as become more aware of our strengths and vulnerabilities; by making new decisions and taking courageous actions, we may love our partners (and ourselves) more and differently. 

It doesn’t take a master mind to know how to love yourself and your partner; all you need to start with is a willing heart.

Love from Hsing
