Be Present All During Your Day Because A Small Meaningless Event Can Improve and Change Your Life Forever, If Your Receptive To It.

                               Any Experience Big or Small Can Change Your Life Forever. 
We Must Always Live Now and Be In The Moment to Identify the Power of Seemingly Small Events

     This is the Event That I Have Concluded to Be My First Thought About the Dream of Inspiring and Helping Others Through Actions, Words, and Non-Verbal Cues.  Although, It Is Such a Minor Event, I Had No Problem Recollecting the Memory, Feeling the Way I Felt That Day, and The Thoughts I Had During the Experience. As Years Have Gone By, I Have Practice More and More About Being In the Moment, Living Now, and Being Open To These Types of Events. They Get You Thinking. Our Life is Made Up of Experiences, Everyone Of Which Even If Not a Big Deal To You,  May Be To Another. My Experience Below for Example, Going to Moe's Restaurant, Seemingly Boring Since I Live Close By, But To a Child in a 3rd World Country, It Very Well May Be The Highlight of Their Childhood. What I Mean By This Is We Should Not Take For Granted The Experiences We Have No Matter How Routine or Dull We May Consider It.  Those Who Live Near the Eiffel Tower May Consider It Normal, However When We Go Visit The Eiffel Tower, It's a Memory That Stays With US FOREVER. Dont Be a Victim of Considering Your Surroundings as Constant, Everything is Changing, Anything Could Happen, and There's Beauty in The Miracles That Surround Us All.

I Am Who I Am Because I Ate At Moe's Mexican Restaurant. Huh? Yes, You Read That Right.

 "NOT all life changing experiences are giant. Some can happen in a split second. I can remember the exact moment I wanted to start living more positive and incorporating it in my daily life. One day, I was having a bad day and was currently fighting with an addiction as well. I had not seen a smiling face, act of kindness, or simple chivalrous gesture done I think ever. I was at my near bottom with no fate or optimism for the future or belief I would ever be happy.
       I remember I walked in to Moe's for the first time... What happens when you walk in to Moe's?
                         Every worker Yells, "WELCOME TO MOES!" 

      I have seen this done at other restaurants but this was DIFFERENT. Every employee in the building from the assembly line, to the bus boy,to the cashier, to the manager (I actually had to compliment the staff, never did that before..)

    They were all sincere, they were really smiling, they had enthusiasm when they spoke to you it was clear, confident, they made eye contact,  they joked with eachother and laughed around the whole process, INCLUDING ME in the conversation that forced me to start laughing.. (they did this while executing their jobs extremely well.

   They had passion, they loved their jobs, they loved who they were around, they were able to be themselves while making money.  They spoke loud enough to hear and exemplified with their eyes and their smile, made eye contact and their eyes were wide open while listening. They were funhearted lovable charismatic, genuinely happy, and were being themselves.

     This one tiny experience changed my life. It was that moment where I saw first hand the power a warm hearted, genuine person with a smile on their face could affect my own personal emotions and flipped that depressed  state of being I was in before I went in. When I Left I was smiling, positive,  enthusiastic, and optimistic for the future.

   That trip to Moe's sparked my mission to constantly improve myself , be chivalrous to all women of all ages (even when others refuse and are just ass holes), I decided I was going to only think positive thoughts, help other's,  be respectful to men and women o all ages equally, and also to use stand by my moral and ethics WHILE ALWAYS striving to be a polite gentleman, and use my manners no matter the circumstance.

  Im still working on these things. I've made mistakes but I make a constant effort to act consciously according to my morals, who I want to be and who I am. If I make a mistake or am wrong I will always own up and take my consequences, apologize for my misdoings and ALWAYS learn from that valuable experience. I will never be perfect and I will always mess up or falter at least a little and TRUST ME I have.

   Through this year I took off for reflecting and growing. Ive been able to implement my positive lifestyle to work and all other areas of my life. I am confident in the man I am and the man I will be."

      We have all had different experiences that lead us to see things with a different perception or come to a different conclusion.  I can guarantee that if you are reading this, you have experienced an event either traumatic, like a devastating injury, or something constructive like working and saving for years to buy your first new car. I do agree that these can be very life-altering events either for good or bad. I understand asking a stranger to share a personal story tragedy or life-changing experience on a public blog would be a little much pressure for most. However anything you have to say even if it is just a comment and would be much appreciated.  Im happy to lend a listening ear. And offer advice if I can.I want to hear anything you have to say, long or short,  good or bad. Big or small. SOME LITTLE THINGS CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE.

      After Awhile Living Somewhere We Begin To Concentrate on Less and Less Because Our Brains Consider Them As Constants. However, Since ALL Humans Being are Created Equal, the Deciding Factor On What It Is We Remember or Learn From These Small Reoccurring Events Depends On How Open We Are To Them. If You Are Driving Down The Street You Live On for 10 Years, Your Probably Thinking About Something Else Other Than The Beauty of the Trees or Houses. We Need to Shake That OFF and Think Consciously. Live Now, Live in The Moment, and Appreciate the Beauty of Everything That Surrounds Us. 

Easiest Way to Think Optimistically

    Smiles are Contagious. Smiles Create Happiness and Promote Well-Beinf. 
   The Law of Attraction Says Your Thoughts Will Become Your Reality.  Happiness Attracts Happiness and Smiles Promote Positive Thoughts.
     Have You Ever Seen a newborn Baby Smile at You?
    Genuinely Smile through the Day, Think Positive Thoughts, and Being Polite & Chivalrous to All, (especially) Women and Children.
  A Childs Smile and Laughter Is Divinely Powerful.
     We are all Human, we all struggle to find happiness, and its hard to smile when you feel like Atlas with the weight of the world is on your shoulders and Murphys Law is in full affect.
   We constantly find ourselves asking at times (especially in difficult/stressful situations)
   " what do I have to smile about, what could possibly be worth being happy about with all these struggles and problems im dealing with?"
We may also even think (very often),
"Why should I Smile when no one else is, and how can it affect my mood or well-being positively?"

    You need to have faith and be confident that things will be better if you do. Our brain associates certain actions and events with specific emotions or states.  Conciously making the effort to put a smile on NO MATTER what, will lead to you doing it habitually. Thats when you will start to see the change. The Law of Attraction is proof of how our thoughts can impact our daily life and outcomes.
    You must live the change you want to see and act the way you want to feel LIke ITS ALREADY TRUE. Eventually it will be. If your depressed or pessimistic about the present or future. Think of all the blessings and talents you have. Be grateful for family and friends as well as think of a moment you knew for sure you were sincerely happy and smiling. THEN put yourself back in to that moment, think and relive the experience and the emotion.
    Let children guide you and be your teachers. If your not happy, BUT WANT TO BE. You need act enthusiastic to be enthusiastic.
Even if you fake a smile, it can still have positive affects and over time becomes the truth.

How To Make a Difference and Change the World, Living In the Moment, Following Your Passion. We Create The World We Live In, But We Must Be Confident, Inspired, and Spread the Message.

How To Make A Difference and Change the World By Improving Yourself 
Live Now Challenge

      It's our turn. Now. Right now. Get up, get out there, change the world, and make a difference. Our generation is going to determine the future of not only the country we live but also the world everyone lives. Personally, I do not  believe this is something to take lightly by any means. Not only are we going to live in the future we create, so are our children, and our children's children.         That is a truth we should all keep close at heart and mind. Its a collaborative effort and we all need to do our part and if thats not enough motivation to make a change for the better Now, then consider the fact the we also live in a generation unlike any seen before. Everything we do now, everything we say, and everything we write will be not only at our children's disposal but all future generations to come as well. They will be able to watch your every move just like a movie. Our lives are going to be an open book for them to learn from and judge life-decisions by.
     Now, is also the best time too for us all to realize and understand that as humans we are not remembered for what we take from this world but rather what we give back to it. Our personal stories, success' and failure's, our legacy if you will can either be the cause of positive or negative inspiration's and aspiration's of our lineage. That fortunately can be greatly affected by the actions and decisions you make now. A lot of people still wonder, "how can I make a difference and change the world?" This I believe is an easy answer, especially in 2012. No matter the subject or niche there will always be people follow you and your message. My recipe is as follows;
"To make a difference: Start with yourself. Grow. Expand to world."
     Human kind as a whole responds to passion. Anything can become popular or a fad as our history has proved. The deciding factor then must be the presentation. Have you ever seen a speaker who was so passionate about what they were talking about that you actually got excited about a topic usually uninteresting to you? What was it about the topic that suddenly had made you so enthralled by it. The topic is the same, still contains all the same information from when you despised it. Then what was different this time? The presentation of it changed. It's wasn't being presented in the boring, uninteresting way it had been before. The speaker was passionate about the topic which had spread to you and excited your enthusiasm for the subject that you didn't know existed before.
     People naturally respond to passion, and passion comes from doing what we love or doing something for what we love. In fact, passion is so persuasive it can even blur such clearly defined moral lines. As terrible as it is look at the Holocaust and Hitler. Hitler was an extremely passionate man and although his intentions were evil and misguided, he still managed to control one of the largest countries in the world and make an inhumane act of violence seem like the right thing to do to many.   I am in no way saying that this is right in any way, shape, or form instead I am merely using this as an example to the power that passion can have.
     If you have ever sat close to a fire, you felt the heat on your skin although you couldn't see the heat you knew it was from the fire. When the fire grows you feel the heat much more intensely. When the fire weakens you must get closer to feel the heat. I believe that humans have the same capability. Imagine a fire burning bright inside each individual. When we are doing what we love that fire is burning much stronger and more people are able to feel it as well as feed off of it. Passion is the fuel to each person's fire and is different for every person It is our own responsibility, just as we have found what makes a real fire burn stronger, to find out what makes our fire burn brighter. Then, let it burn baby, burn.
     Ask yourself sincerely what you love to do. Then do it. Learn from mistakes and hiccups, gain experience, form well-thought opinions, and grow personally fueled by natural passion. Finally, put yourself out there. Be self-confident enough to take the "social risk" and put yourself out there. As I have said before people respond to passion, but people cant respond if they are never shown. Keep that in mind.
     One of my all time favorite quotes I believe states it very well, "do something you love and you will never work a day in your life." When you are passionate and love what your doing, it's not work, it's fun.
     Just as a young man works to secure his families future; we must all work to secure our future's future. How can we do that? Live Now. What i mean is don't worry about what the future actually brings. Tell yourself how you want it to be and live like it's that way already. Generally, when we expect something, a victory or failure, negative or positive; we get what we expected, good or bad. If you live now instead of waiting for the future, you are guaranteeing that the future you get is the one you want. The Law of Attraction says so; if you think it will happen, it will happen.
      Living Now is to think about only the present. Like a child opening their eyes for the first time, you see things, everything. You begin to notice that bird's nest in a tree, you hear the rustling of the bush's leaves from the squirrels fighting, you feel the warmth of the sun on your skin, you begin to feel what other people are saying and hear them more clearly than before, you begin to appreciate the work that has gone in to literally everything around you man made or naturally. Everything is clear. You become more aware of your surrounding, you can fully concentrate on the obstacles happening Now, which are the only ones that can ever affect anything anyways. Why wouldn't you want your full focus on them?
      Living Now also makes you happier and less stressed in general. You can't be worrying if you aren't constantly dwelling on the past and future. This is true because the definition of 'worry' itself states 'to think about future or past events.
     Without experiencing the actual feeling of living in the moment, it's hard to fully grasp the concept and benefits. The best way to get in to the Now is to concentrate on your breathing. This may sound cliche but it is 100% true. When you concentrate your mind solely on your breath going in and out while visualizing the oxygen and nourishment being carried to all the parts of your body, you subsequently can't think of anything else except the now.
     Once you fully grasp this idea and have practiced. The next time something irritates you or a problem arises, no matter where you are even if your in the middle of a speech to a million people, remember to take a deep breath and concentrate on this breath. Everyone breathes its normal you wont be an outcast so don't worry. Plus the pause may even help to build up suspense (trust me it works). After that breath your mind will be clear and senses alert. Watch how much better you handle that situation and how much more cool, calm, and collected you seem.
     Living Now makes life run smoothly, naturally, and positively. It allows one to see what they really want, free from distractions. Its also how one can achieve those wants. In fact, what happens now is what determines everything else so don't miss your chance to be happy and naturally create a better place for yourself, your family, and the rest of the world. With the present moment being the only one we can affect and being the only one that truthfully affects anything. It's amazing to me how so many people don't see that and waste so much time worrying about things that will come naturally if we let them.

     My challenge to you is this: 
Start To Live Now. Have Confidence That What You Do Now Will Get You Where You Want To Be AND Stop Worrying About the Future and Wallowing in the Past. Grow, Gain Experience, Constantly Improve to Become the Best You Possible, Love and Respect Yourself As Much As Everyone Else. Be Passionate and Speak with Conviction. ALWAYS Walk With A Smile and Share It The Rest of the World.

Awareness of Your Surroundings and Connections or Associations Your Brain Creates Are Incredible. Conscious Effort and Living in the Present Moment Allows You To Improve This and makes You Appreciate the Little Things

       Our brains make so many connections its absolutely incredible. Although we don't consciously interpret the vast majority of these connections. The more you work on living in the present moment,  asking questions, observing your surroundings. I personally at least have begun to see that certain things I see affect my emotions or state or even begin to connect thoughts I had many years prior in response to the same object or a similar object. Mostly for me its for things I've seen frequently for the majority of my life. But sometimes it can even be (and honestly I may be wrong but its what I have noticed) if I meet someone for the first time and I don't like them. I can usually associate them in personality or appearance or vibe with someone or something I previously had decided I didn't like.

    Any ways here's a random thought I had about this incredible bronze fountain in my backyard.
It's called Adventure Mountain after the artist Jim Davidson

                                     I wrote more in a previous blog an in depth post about

     This fountain has been in my backyard forever. I always said and believed I was the kid at the top. Now that I think about it, this fountain has in some ways made me strive to be the best I can be. To me back then the statue of the boy on top was a leader and courageous person, two qualities I have always wanted and fought for. I also thought it was a competitiveness with the others climbing the mountain that he reached the top the fastest to be the best. That's also something I had always wanted. After years of growing and maturing my perceptions have changed as everyone does, but I've seen if they're is truth to a thought it remains while the ones that were wrong whether we know they're wrong or not, our brains manipulate and change in attempt to correct them since our new experiences changed our perception. My thoughts remain the same today looking at this fountain with one drastic difference. The boy on top didn't get their first by wanting to win. Otherwise he'd be chastising the boys close behind. He was still a courageous leader but his desire to help those other boys push themselves and accomplish things they never thought possible like climbing a mountain. He was a true leader who envisioned a goal seemingly dangerous or impossible, inspired others to follow him, and in his desire to inspire and help others he succeeded. Not by stepping on them it cheating but with true passion and motivation to succeed and help others succeed. I know I know its just a fountain right? You need to see the beauty in everything because our brains are so incredible these kinds of associations are everywhere and we just need to be awake to see and understand them.
