21 Ways To Be Awesome
Who Are The Angels? Angels are all around us. Whether you realize it or not, you are surrounded by
heavenly beings that are here to help you. Not only do they want to help you, their purpose in your life is to help you in every area.
Life is not an ďevery man for himself Ē endeavor. You can certainly live that way if you choose, but not enjoy the spiritual gifts that heaven has for you? Angels are the heavenly embodiment of God ís
energy sent to us from heaven. They love and assist us our entire lives. Before we íre born, we set
a life plan for ourselves containing the lessons we are to learn in this life and on a soul level.
Your life plan is precisely what, where and with whom you are meant to be. There ís
nothing in life more fulfilling than being on course with your life purpose, or your soul plan.It doesn ít matter if you want to be a millionaire, a business owner, or a parent Ė living your life path in this lifetime according to exactly how you planned it before you were born is by far the greatest gift and most successful accomplishment you can achieve in
Now, there are two types of angels that assist you.
DID YOU KNOW?
That the angels exist solely to help us? Their only purpose and reason for being is to assist us in our daily lives. That ís why it ís important for you to call on them for help in every area of your life!?† - 5
When we íre born we íre given at least two guardian angels, without exception. These
heavenly souls are assigned to be with you your entire life and offer you their loving and
divine help, as well as their guidance and support according to what you have set out to
do in life. Indeed, the life experience of your guardian angels has a lot to do with the life lessons
you íve set out for yourself.
As you live your life and grow, you take on more guardian angels, especially in times
when you want, need or ask for help in your life.
Most guardian angels stay with you your entire life once they come to be with you
Our angels play a very important role in our lives.
Because they íre assigned to us at birth, they stay by our side, loving
and guiding us, until we return home. There are many different types
of angels, each with their own unique role to play in our lives.
Everyone loves angels and for good reason. They signify love,
courage, strength and guidance. It ís no wonder that people get angel
tattoos, adorn their homes with Christmas angels during the holidays
and make snow angels in winter. Some people think that angels only
exist in heaven and don ít interact with us at all.
Well, I ím here to tell you that they sure do!
First of all, did you know an angel ís wings aren ít use to fly, but rather to denote which
phylum, or level, they íre from? Each phylum has a different color wing tip and each has
a very important role to play.
Let ís take a look at the different types of angels.?† - 6
The Phylums of Angels
There are ten different phylums (heirarchy) of angels, all with their own personality and
area of specialty. You can call upon them at any time, depending on your needs. They
all exist to help you while you íre here.
1. Guardian Angels
The Guardians are the first phylum. They radiate with love and glory and appear with a
beautiful white light surrounding them. The color of their wing tips is silver. The
guardians are our protectors and are here to keep us safe. They assist us with our fears
2. The Archangels
The Archangels are the second phylum. The four main archangels are:
Archangels have white wings with blue tips. Their primary purpose is healing and
they íre also messengers of hope.
The Archangels use a scepter to heal by touching us with it in the area of our body that
Their totem is the wolf and their element is rain. Their stone is aquamarine.
The Archangels exist to help us with our journeys here on earth. Did you really think you
were in this alone?
These powerful angels oversee the Guardian Angels and when you need a powerhouse
to help you out with a difficult area in your life, call on them right away! These heavenly
beings are there for you.
Let ís look at them a little more in-depth.?† - 7
Archangel Michael - His name means: "He who is like God."
Michael is the warrior, defender and protector of heaven and earth. Call upon Michael
whenever you want protection. He also removes negativity and fear from your life. I
work with Michael very often and he gets the job done!
Archangel Gabriel - Her name means "God is my strength."
She has a feminine energy and is associated with conception and birth, and is the
or looking for a different job, call on Gabriel.
Archangel Raphael - His name means "He Who Heals."
color is emerald green which is the color of healing. Call on Raphael to heal yourself or
someone you love.
Archangel Uriel - His name means "Fire of God."
Call on Uriel for insight into your life's purpose and direction and to send you clear
messages and ideas. He lovingly answers our prayers and thoughts.
There's a lot of information on the internet about the Archangels and I strongly suggest
you invite them into your life because once you do, doors to endless possibilities will
open for you.?
3&4. The Cherubim and Seraphim
The third and fourth level of angels are the Cherubim and Seraphim. They íre known for
their beautiful singing abilities. The difference between the two is that the Cherubim
have beautiful singing voice and the Seraphim possess a vibrational/tonal ability.
Together their music is indescribable and beyond words.
They are truly the most joyous phylum of angels. They have white wings with rose
Their totem is the canary.
5. The Powers
The fifth phylum of angels are The Powers. Their primary purpose is healing. While the
Archangels use a scepter to heal, the Powers use their wings by sheltering you within
The Powers use their energy to heal. The electrical force that comes from them enters
your body and heals you cell by cell. They íre quite large in size.
Their totem is the falcon, known for swiftness and perseverance. Their element is the
moon. Their stone is the emerald, which possesses the healing color of green.
Their wings are white with greenish white tips.
6. The Carrions
The sixth phylum of angels are The Carrions. Their primary purpose is to escort away
dark entities when they die. Their sole mission is to stand back until a dark entity passes
The Carrions protect our world and The Other Side from darkness. They are the reason
dead dark entities don ít exist on earth.
Their totem is the raven and their element is the wind. Their stone is the opal.
7. The Virtues
The seventh phylum of angels are The Virtues.?† - 9
The Virtues assist us with our life charts. They help us to make changes to our charts
whenever needed. They also help us with our life and charts on The Other Side before
we come here to Earth to live another life. They íre an incredible phylum of angels that
help to guide us before we begin our journeys here on earth.
Their totem is the dove, the symbol of peace. Their stone is silver and their element is
They have white wings with pale blue tips and a silvery blue luminescence.
8. The Dominions
The eighth phylum of angels are The Dominions. They watch over us and permanently
record our actions and good deeds in the Akashic Records. They typically don ít assist
us on the earth plane but do their work for us on The Other Side.
When we need assistance, our spirit guides will sometimes go to The Dominions
instead of The Council because of The Dominions í thorough knowledge of our charts
Their totem is the cougar, which represents strength and dignity. Their element is earth,
which signifies grounding and the lives they record. Their stone is the bloodstone.
They have white wings with maroon tips.
9&10. The Thrones and Principalities
The ninth and tenth phylum are The Thrones and Principalities and are considered the
highest phylum of angels. They represent Mother and Father God ís armies.
The Thrones and Principalities come to us when we íre in any type of danger. The
Thrones are Mother God ís army and The Principalities are Father God ís army.
You can call upon these phylums of angels to protect you or your loved ones when in a
difficult or troublesome situation.
The Thrones are more active than The Principalities, who act more as guardians-at-the-gate.
The Principalities are in charge of cities and nations and are the protectors of
spirituality and religion. They have incredible power and grace and are the highest
phylum of all angels.
Each phylum of angels are here to assist. Call upon them at any time.
They íre a gift from our Creator and are here to help you.?† - 10
A Centering Meditation
As humans, we spend so much time in our minds, thinking about one thing after
another. We rarely, if ever, take time to turn off all the unimportant thoughts in order to
focus inward, where inner peace resides.
If the thought of meditation scares you,it ís really a lot easier than you think.It was
difficult for me when I first started meditating because I couldn ít keep my mind still.It ís
a problem for anyone who has never meditated.
A friend told me about The Healing Waterfall, which is a beautiful guided journey and
that ís how I learned to meditate.I recommend it to all of my students too.It ís such an
incredible way to start meditating.
This centering meditation will bring your consciousness into your heart, to the center of
your body, which is where your angel meets you. Find a comfortable quiet spot where
you won ít be disturbed. If you record this exercise, allow a minute or two between each
1. Close your eyes. Feel your breath rising and falling in your body. As you inhale,
inhale through the belly, expand it. Allow the weight of your body to push the air out.
2. Place your hands on your heart. Feel the beat of your heart, the life force energy
within you. Feel your heart pumping blood to every part of your body.
3. Keep your attention focused on your heart and your heartbeat. If your mind wanders,
simply bring it back to the center of your heart.
4. In your mind ís eye, see a flame in the center of your heart. This signifies the spark of
the Divine within you. It ís the essence of who you are. Connect to this flame and feel
what it means to you.
5. Exhale fully. When you are ready, open your eyes.
This exercise can have a wonderfully positive effect on your life. You can use it any time
of day, wherever you are, whenever you don ít feel centered and it only takes a minute
or two. You can do it at your desk, while you are sitting in your car, at a red light, etc.
When we think of the angels, we often think of heavenly beings with wings. While that is
true, they are also our closest friends and supporters. When we take the time to focus
on our Divine light within, we bring ourselves closer to our angels and their message.?† - 11
The more you meditate and focus on your Divine flame within, the closer you bring
yourself to your angels.
Automatic Writing Ė Communicating With Your Angels
Our angels are assigned to us for protection, guidance and love. Even in our loneliest
moments, we íre never alone. All we have to do is call on our angels for guidance in
every area of our life.
Automatic writing has been around for centuries. People have used it to speak with their
guides, angels and loved ones in spirit.
It doesn ít require you to do anything unusual. Simply sitting in a comfortable position
with a pen and paper is all you need. If you íre like me and want to bring through
messages quicker, you can use a computer keyboard.
Now, there are two types of writing when communicating with your angels. There is
ďautomatic writing Ē and ďautomatic dictation Ē.
When you íre automatic writing, you íre not aware of what ís being written. You feel
a sort of floating sensation, as though you íre floating above your keyboard.
With automatic dictation, you íre fully aware of every word you íre writing and the
information comes to you either in your mind ís eye (clairvoyance), by hearing it
(clairaudience) or by knowing it (claircognizance).
The whole process of automatic writing is really very simple Ö.don ít complicate it
by allowing your mind to analyze whether or not it ís you or your angels.
Most people think the process is going to be hard and that they íre not ďqualified Ē to
communicate with their angels in this way. Humbug!
I assure you, you íre very qualified to communicate with your angels!
Before you begin, it ís a great idea to have a journal that you can keep solely for your
communications with your angels. As your conversations with them progress, you íll be
able to refer back to your increasing progress and read all the messages you received.
Your angels are just as excited to communicate with you as you
are with them, and there ís a very simple technique that you can
use to communicate.?† - 12
You don ít need to make this a ritual with candles, incense or other types of
paraphernalia. You can certainly use them if you like, but they íre not required. All you
need is your willingness to let your angels ďin Ē no matter where you are.
Let ís get started:
Find a comfy spot to sit and relax. It can be on the floor or in your favorite chair, or
sitting up in bed.
Take several deep refreshing breaths and allow your body to relax.
Say a short prayer to elevate your energy and call in your angels such as:
Please help me to hear your messages clearly through your loving angels.
Allow me to be healed in my areas of greatest need and to learn more about your truth,
love and joy.Ē
As you begin, asking a question will help your angels communicate with you. They can ít
answer you unless you ask!
ďDear Angels, what would you like to teach me today?Ē
ďDear Angels, can you please tell me about my strengths?Ē
Remember to relax and breathe. Open yourself up to your angels í energy so
you íll be in an active, receptive place.
Begin writing anything and everything that comes to mind. You may hear a single word
or a sentence. You may see an image or picture in your mind. You may get a sense of
It doesn ít matter how it comes to you, simple write it all down. Don ít allow your mind to
start analyzing what ís being written.
Don ít analyze, organize or judge, just write!
Ask your angels their names. You may hear, see or know the answer. Write down the
very first thing you get. Ask them whatever question you would like the answer to.?† - 13
As you write, are you aware of what ís being written? Do you feel a floating sensation as
You íll receive your message easily but don ít stop to question it or talk yourself out of an
accurate angel communication. Our minds want nothing more than to be in control of
every situation, including automatic writing.
Don ít allow doubt to take away from your session. Simply acknowledge any feelings
that arise, then push them aside.
When communicating with your angels, you messages will be positive, helpful and
loving. Angels give with love and truth.
What you receive is what the angels want to tell you.
It may be simple or complicated, but trust what is given to you. Automatic writing and
automatic dictation are not a science. They íre both simple processes that opens you up
to receive communication from your angels.
It ís important not to ask your angels about other people as the angels don ít engage in
psychic gossip. You are their primary concern.
Once the messages slow down and you íre not receiving anything more, thank your
angels for their time.
Remember to journal your communications and as you progress with your automatic
writing, your communication with your angels will strengthen and your messages will
become longer and more detailed.
Have fun with your angels!
If you receive a message that is not joyful and loving, you may
have picked up on an energy that is not angelic. Simply ask your
angels to remove that energy and show it to the light, then call in
your angels for communication.?† - 14
A Meditation To Open To Your Angel
This wonderful meditation will help you to open to your angel. It will become easier with
practice and your bond with your angel will grow stronger.
Have a notebook and pen handy. Write ďOpening to My Angel Ē and the date at the top
of the page.
1. Sit in a quiet, peaceful space with your feet flat on the floor and your eyes closed. Ask
your angel to draw closer to you. Imagine its wings softly folded around you.
2. As you slowly inhale and exhale, feel or sense the presence of your angel reaching
out to you. Ask your angel to come closer to you now. Breathe in your angel ís essence
and energy and allow yourself to feel the love emanating from your angel.
3. Bring your attention to the center of your heart. Ask your angel a question. Imagine
yourself writing the question within your heart.
4. When you feel the words to your question within your heart, open your eyes and write
your question down in your notebook. Close your eyes again.
5. With the words of your mind and in your heart, connect with the deep desire to hear
your angel ís voice. Listen in your heart Ö become aware of any feelings. Our Angels
reach out to us through our feelings. Allow the feelings to come to you and be open to
the words that arise.
6. Write down whatever you receive, whether they íre words, images or feelings.
7. Remember to thank your angel for this message.
8. Read over what you íve just received.
Notice how you feel about the message. If the words you wrote down bring tears to your
eyes or you feel moved by them, you íll know that your angel has just spoken to you.
If you íre not sure you received a message, simply close your eyes again and repeat the
process from the beginning, and ask your angel to make contact with you.
Accept whatever message you receive with gratitude. Don ít dismiss or judge what
comes through because that will shut down your heart and block communication with
When you accept, you open, and when you íre open, you
receive?† - 15
Meditation and the Seven Steps To Inner Peace
If you want to experience inner peace, you don't need to travel to exotic locations, study
with a yogi or lock yourself in a room and chant endlessly. Finding inner peace is a
matter of taking time for yourself to quietly reflect on the stillness within you.
We're all so busy rushing from one thing to another, occupying our precious time with
things that don't even need our immediate attention.
Sadly, we seldom take time for ourselves to be at peace.
Truth is, the idea of someone having 20 minutes of free time to do nothing could very
well put them in a panic! Most people wouldn't know what to do with themselves. That's
because they don't know inner peace.
Inner peace is the reflection of within. It is the focus of the quiet stillness within you that
gives you a sense of the kind of peace and relaxation that is without words.
Meditation is the secret to finding inner peace. Inner peace is the secret to spiritual
awakening and oneness with your spiritual self.
Here are some suggestions that will help you find inner peace.
1. Spend Time In Quiet Reflection
With all that's going on in the world today, one of the best things you can do to achieve
inner peace is to minimize or eliminate reading newspapers and watching the news.
When we allow our mind to absorb the negativity that's around us, we become more
detached from our spirituality and achieving inner peace.
When our mind has nothing to occupy it, it immediately feels insecure and looks for
something to fill the void. That's when we instantly turn on the TV or surf the internet,
anything to keep the mind busy.
Instead, when you find yourself with some free time, even if it's just 15 minutes, use that
time to be still, to be by yourself, to focus inward. A guided meditation will help you take
a huge leap forward toward inner peace.
2. You Are What You Think
Manifest A Miracle states that we've been conditioned to think negativity and the life
we live today is the direct result of those thoughts. Negativity thrives in the minds of?† - 16
most people Ė sad but true. They thrive on bad news, they buy it, they follow it, they
seek it out. It's no wonder that so many people seem so unhappy and withdrawn,
unable to escape the self-imposed wall of negativity they've build around themselves.
We must take the necessary steps to avoid negative thinking. You'll never be able to
achieve inner peace when you're focused on the negative.
There's simply nothing at all to be gained by thinking negative thoughts.
Changing your way of thinking is not going to be easy - it doesn't happen overnight. But
what steps are you willing to take to change your life and achieve inner peace?
You are the master of your mind, not the other way around. Take control of your
thoughts and you'll not only take control of your life, but you'll achieve inner peace.
3. Simplify Your Life
"There never enough time in the day."
How many times have you heard someone say that? We fill our days up with so many
chores, tasks and mundane activities and as a result, we don't stand a chance in
achieving inner peace. Simply because we don't take the time.
You want to meditate but have to get the laundry done. You want to spend some time to
yourself but the grass has to be mowed. You want to sit down for just a few minutes but
you have to vacuum first.
When you stop placing demands on your time, you'll feel a weight lifted from your
Prioritize your time by tackling the big tasks first, plan time for yourself, then accomplish
some of the smaller tasks, but at a comfortable pace. You'll find your day a lot less
hectic and a lot more enjoyable.
4. Quiet Time Alone Is The Foundation of Inner Peace
Each day we spend our time working for someone else, taking care of our families,
cleaning, cooking, etc. Sadly, we never manage to find just 15 minutes to focus on inner
Sitting quietly and simply listening to the breath allows the body and mind to
relax.?† - 17
This cultivates inner peace. There's no amount of money that will bring you inner peace.
There's nothing "without" you that can bring you inner peace. It must come from "within"
you, from within those quiet moments of solitude when there is only you and stillness.
If you have trouble stilling you mind, ask your angels to help remove those busy
thoughts so you can focus on inner peace.
5. Be Immune to Flattery and Criticism
You must remember that it's not what others think, but what you think that matters.
We certainly can listen to the criticism and flattery of others, but if we depend on them,
we rob ourselves of inner peace.
Allowing yourself to be affected by people who bestow either flattery or criticism on you
will inflate your ego which pulls you further away from inner peace.
Allow yourself to have a strong sense of confidence and self. Know that your opinions
are ultimately the ones that matter. Don't criticize anyone but instead accept them for
who they are. Leave the criticism to those who lack good judgment and self-confidence.
6. Act Selflessly
Act from the heart and reap the rewards!
Give selflessly of yourself. When we serve others in some form, the feelings of love,
happiness and inner peace will envelope you like a big hug from someone you love.
7. Avoid Criticism of Others
It's vital that we empathize with others, to put ourselves in someone else's place.
We must be aware that everyone is fighting a battle of some kind. Criticism of others is
a negative energy that deeply affects your sense of inner peace.
When we criticize, it's impossible to feel inner peace. Instead, make an effort to give
your love and energy to others in need, and in doing so that positive energy will have a
wonderful ripple effect.?† - 18
Angels and Your Life Purpose It ís Not A One Man Show
Whether you realize it or not, you are surrounded by heavenly beings that are here to
help you. Not only do they want to help you, but their purpose in your life is to help you
on your path.
Life is not an "every man for himself" endeavor. You can certainly live that way if you
want, but why not enjoy the spiritual gifts that heaven has for you?
Angels are the embodiment of God's love and energy sent to us from heaven. They're
goal is to assist us our entire lives. Before we're born, we set a life plan for ourselves
containing the lessons we are to learn in this life and on a soul level.
Your life plan is precisely what, where and with whom you are meant to be. There's
nothing in life more fulfilling than being on course with your life purpose, or your soul
It doesn't matter if you want to be a millionaire, a parent, or a business owner - living
your life path according to exactly how you planned it before you were born is by far the
greatest gift and most successful accomplishment you can achieve.
When we're born we're given at least two guardian angels, without exception. These
heavenly souls are assigned to be with you your entire life and offer you their loving and
divine help, as well as their guidance and support according to what you've set out to do
in your life.
As you live your life and grow, you take on more guardian angels, especially in times
when you want, need or ask for help in your life.
Most guardian angels stay with you your entire life. Take advantage of their love and
guidance by asking them to help you in every area of your life.?† - 19

121 Ways To Be Awesome!
If you want to be awesome, you have to care. Care about the people around you and
even people you íve never met.This is especially true if you íre blogging or a public
figure. Care about your fans and they will care even more about you.
2. Give Value
We all have something to share. Always focus on what you can do for others. What do
you love and what are you good at (or want to become good at)?
3. Be honest
Honesty feels good and is the right thing to do. But why do many choose to lie instead?
Most often it ís because it makes their life easier,or does it?It usually might seem like it
in the short-term, but in the long-term, honesty always wins.
4. Be honorable
Be honorable and respectable. This means doing the right things, keeping promises and
in general, being someone who does the right thing. Look at our world leaders today
and do the opposite.?† - 21
Having integrity for me means being ethical and following a moral code that is both
practical and benefits all of humanity.It ís idealistic,but it is certainly worth striving for,
isn ít it?
6. Follow your passion
Find your passion and follow it. Never give up. There is always a way to do what you
love while supporting yourself. It may not come in the form you think, so be open-minded
7. Take responsibility
You are responsible for your life.There is no one to blame.If you íre not happy with your
life or with your circumstances, you are the only one that can take responsibility and
start changing it. What are you waiting for?
8. Be positive
Being just a little bit more positive can mean a lot of things. Reading a good book,
checking out positive quotations or even watching a movie that you enjoy. The
possibilities are endless. Even though being positive is clichť and kind of irritating, it is
9. Take action
You can dream and you can wonder, but nothing happens without taking action
consistently.You don ít ha ve to be perfect. Learn as much as you need to know the next
step and take action!
10. Be radical
Sometimes it ís good to be radical,if it ís you.Radical means different things to different
people,so I íll leave it up to you to interpret it.
11. Focus on your strengths
Stop trying to fix your weaknesses.You can ít be perfect.Focus on your strength and let
other people do what you íre bad at.?† - 22
12. Do less
You can do less and live more.You don ít need more stuff.Release your cravings for
materialism. It will lead to less debt, less work and less stress.
13. Be authentic
Whatever you do,be authentic.Be yourself.I íve always been a bit of an introvert,so
this is another one of those points that I ím constantly working on.
14. Enjoy the process
When you íre do ing something you love, you will automatically enjoy the process. Goals
don ít even matter at this point.Sure,they give you a direction,but you íre loving life and
15. Be practical
You don ít have to quit your job to do what you love.You can slowly start phasing it out
by working on your passion project after you get home from work. Be practical and
realistic.Don ít just jump into your passion when you don ít have a plan.
16. Lose arguments
Why do we insist on being right all the time? Try losing arguments.It ís great fun and
interrupts patterns in people. Seeing people get confused is a lot of fun.
17. Let someone pass you in line at the supermarket
Everyone ís in a rush to get home,but what if you took a deep breathe and let someone
pass y ou?It ís unexpected and it makes people smile.
18. Quit your job
If you íre ready for it,just quit your job.There ís no need to hang onto something that you
don ít need.For the rest of you,stay put.
19. Give away stuff
How much stuff do you have that you haven ít used in the last 12 months?What about
giving it all away? I know a lot of people that have their houses full of stuff.?†
Be aware of where your focus is.Where focus goes,energy flows.If you íre constantly
thinking about how you will fail, you will feel bad and maybe even fail. Think about how
you will succeed and you might just succeed.If at first you don ít succeed,try again.
21. Tidy up
Keep your apartment or house clean.Not saying that I ím a master of cleanliness or
anything, but it sure does feel good to have everything looking good,doesn ít it?
22. Embrace challenges
Most people avoid challenges, or as they like to call them: problems. What would life be
without challenges? Incredibly boring. We would never grow Ė at least not as fast Ė and
everything would be smooth sailing.
23. Live with power
Live with power and certainty. Power goes hand in hand with responsibility. Take action,
be confident, be yourself and trust that your intuition will guide you wherever you need
24. Practice courage
We all have our fears.By practicing courage and doing something even though you íre
afraid,you grow.New stuff is scary.I know that.You know that.Let ís do it anyway,shall
25. Surround yourself with awesome people
The people you choose as friends have a big impact on how you think and act. Do not
accept just anyone into your life. Choose your friends wisely.
26. Go with the flow
You know, the universe is constantly giving you hints and trying to pull you in one
direction. Are you not icing those hints?From now on,think about the signs you íre
getting and follow them.?† - 24
27. Release expectations
Release all expectations after you íve set your goal.You never know what the universe
might deliver to your doorstep.That ís why you want to ha ve an open-mind, because
what if the universe has something better in store for you?
Dare to experiment. Embrace failure, because that is how you learn and how you grow.
Being awesome means looking ridiculous and making tons of mistakes. Why? Because
it helps you become better and provide even more value.
29. Live within your means
Do you really need a car? Do you need cable T.V? We can live a lot cheaper when we
realize that we do not need a lot of the stuff we think we need. This allows you to work
less and have more free time to do what you want.
30. Slow down
Life is busy. Try to be conscious as much as possible. Breathe and slow down. Enjoy
the fact that you íre alive.Be grateful for the little things.Be grateful for the big things.
31. Use money as a tool
Money doesn ít have to enslave you.How much money do you really need?How about
having enough to do what you want, when you want to do it? Why would anyone need
more than that?
Let yourself dream.All my childhood I íve been told that things can ít be done,but I have
come to realize just the opposite,so let yourself dream and ignore the people that don ít

favorite books are the Power of Now and Way of the Peaceful Warrior.
112. Throw out your T.V
How much time do you spend watching T.V?I haven ít watched television regularly for a
very long time. It frees up amazing amounts of time.If you watch 2 hours a day,that ís
730 hours per year,or 4.34 weeks per year.It ís time to kill your T.V.

How often have you felt happy after reading the news?It ís filled with propaganda,
manipulated stories and bombs.

do you any good.?

now, but I have noticed that whenever I focus on one thing, magic happens more often

How about money? Which one is #1?
People say they don ít have time,when in reality they íre saying they lack priorities.If you
don ít have time to follow your passion,you don ít really care about feeling fulfilled and
awesome. Learn how to eliminate and discriminate.
120. Keep it simple
Keep things as simple as necessary, but no simpler.
Remind yourself that you are going to leave this earth eventually. This will melt away
any obstacles that are preventing you from living your life to the fullest. Henri Juntilla
