Dooming Yourself to Failure

Are You Dooming Yourself to Failure? Beware of These Signs

Niji No Hashi Dojo Martial-Arts Cary, Morrisville, NC I’ll never be successfull

Much of our happiness and success is the result of our thinking. So, too, are our failures. And our thoughts are revealed in our self-talk. What you say to yourself during the course of the day largely determines the outcome.

In theory, it’s really pretty simple:

  • Positive self-talk leads to success.
  • Negative self-talk dooms you to failure.

Which one are you setting yourself up for?

Like an evil mist, negative thinking has an insidious way of weaving its wispy tendrils into our thoughts and words. Over time, it becomes a habit – so much so that you might not even notice it. But you can’t help but notice the result: failure, time and time again.

The solution is to develop new habits in your thinking.

Let’s examine several ways to combat these negative thought processes and develop new, positive thoughts that will better serve you.

When you’re good at recognizing these flaws in your self-talk, you’re 90% of the way there:

  1. “I can be happy once I …” It’s a mistake to believe that you need to have or do anything before you can be happy. As soon as the criterion is met, another will simply take its place. It’s great to strive for more, but to make your happiness dependent on such attainment will delay your happiness forever.
  1. The success of other people makes you jealous or resentful. The flaw is thinking that only a limited number of people can experience success.
  • Learn to admire others that are successful. Learn from their success and be happy for them. You can be successful, too.
  1. “I can’t do anything right” or “I’ll never be successful.” Mistakes are simply a learning method of how not to do something. Humans learn largely via ‘failure’. The most successful people have failed far more times than the average person. The difference is that they discover how to pick themselves back up again so they can go on to succeed.
  • Remind yourself of all the times you’ve succeeded at something in the past.
  • For example, learning to talk and walk were difficult endeavors. Consider how many times you failed at both of them and yet you were successful in the end. What if you had the same level of perseverance for everything else in your life?
  1. “Why do these things always happen to me?” Over the long haul, life is remarkably fair. Bad things happen, but they tend to pass and good things take their place. To believe that you are singled out for bad things is a critical error that can guide you toward more negative circumstances.
  2. “I can’t do this.” It’s difficult to do something that you believe you can’t. In reality, you can do nearly anything, given enough time and effort.
  • Can you improve a little bit today? Of course you can, and you can keep improving each day. How could you not be able to do something if you never give up?
  1. “I’ll do it tomorrow (or next week).” We often let ourselves off the hook by putting things off into the future. Successful people are great at doing what needs to be done. They simply do the things others don’t have the nerve to do.
  • Be brave and claim your success today – not someday.
  1. Any other negative self-talk. There’s a simple way to know if your thinking is on track. You should be happy, motivated, and enthusiastic to attack your goals. If you don’t feel this way, then you have negative thoughts in your head. Find and resolve these thoughts.

Monitor yourself continuously for negative thought patterns. When they occur, intentionally turn the thought around into something positive.

Most of your negative thoughts have little reality supporting them – they merely have the power of repetition on their side. You can override that with repetition of new, positive thoughts.

You have the power to transform your life. Imagine what you could do if you banished all negative thoughts from your mind. Nurture yourself with positive self-talk and enjoy the success you deserve!

Are you Making a Fresh Start

3 Quick Ways to Boost Your Self-Esteem

Are you Making a Fresh Start

Self-esteem is basically about having a positive and realistic sense of who you are. You like yourself and understand your strengths. You believe in your abilities and recognize the areas where you could use a little more work.

While your childhood experiences influence your level of self-esteem, there’s a lot you can do as an adult to boost your confidence. Study these tips for building up your sense of self-worth, and apply them to your own circumstances.

Practice Your Faith

For many of us, our spiritual faith defines who we are and our purpose in life. Let your faith show you how valuable you are, and how precious your life is.

  1. Meditate and pray. Set aside time each day to connect with the divine. Create a quiet space where you can sit down and still your mind.
  2. Read inspirational messages. Pick up a few books by a spiritual leader you admire. If you’re looking for new ideas, browse online and ask your friends what they’re reading.
  3. Discuss your beliefs. Clarify your thinking and challenge your assumptions by talking with others. You’ll deepen your understanding of your faith and discover how to put your beliefs into action.
  4. Embrace your individuality. Your faith will help you to respect your unique gifts and give you the courage to be yourself. Authenticity is the basis of true confidence.

Appreciate Your Accomplishments

Each action we take reinforces our self-esteem or tears it down. Learn to make choices that will help you to take care of yourself.

  1. Make a list. Think about your past victories and the patterns that they suggest. Maybe you perform well when you collaborate with others or narrow your focus to a few top priorities.
  2. Align your actions with your values. Think about what you value and how your actions support your core beliefs. Examine which choices cause stress or create peace of mind for you.
  3. Take risks. Feeling confident and capable allows you to reach beyond your comfort zone. Audition for a part in the next production at your local community theater or volunteer for a tough assignment at work.
  4. Persevere through obstacles. It’s easy to say you have a goal, but tougher to see it through to completion. High self-esteem helps you to overcome setbacks because you know that you’re worth the effort.

Cultivate Social Support 

While we’re ultimately responsible for developing our own self-esteem, our interactions with others play a powerful role. Use your relationships to strengthen your belief in yourself.

  1. Turn to your family. Rely on family rituals that contribute to your sense of self-worth, and work on changing the dynamics that seem counterproductive. You may decide to hold family meetings so you can agree on house rules and cut down on bickering.
  2. Deepen your friendships. Are your daily interactions mostly about work? Disclose your inner thoughts to let others know you and communicate on a more profound level.
  3. Evaluate your romantic life. How you perceive yourself has a powerful impact on how you handle dating and marriage. Talk with your partner about what you can do to respect each other’s feelings.
  4. Play with your dog. For a quick fix, look at yourself through your dog’s eyes. Your dog thinks you’re great, so let them teach you to have more compassion for yourself. Many studies show that pet owners tend to have higher self-esteem.

Love and accept yourself for who you are. As you build your self-esteem, you’ll be more likely to make sound decisions and fulfill your goals. You’ll know that you are worthy of respect and dignity.

These ideas to enjoy greater success

Actions That Bring You SuccessNinja-Secret-Principles1Stay focused

Who doesn’t want more success? Whatever you’ve already accomplished, there’s always another interesting mountain to climb. If you’re looking for more achievement, you can improve your life dramatically with a few simple changes.
Although these suggestions are straightforward, most of them will require constant attention for a little while until they become habitual. Once they become automatic, though, you’ll be thrilled with your progress.

Try these ideas to enjoy greater success:

  1. Hang out with successful individuals. You’ll frequently find that you achieve about as much as the people with whom you spend the most time. If you want to be successful, affiliate as often as you can with people who are more successful than you. There are a couple of reasons for this:
  • You’ll be exposed to a completely different way of thinking and interacting with the world. Very successful people look at many things differently than those who are less successful. Integrating some of these ideas into your own thinking will likely bring you more successes of your own.
  • You’ll also encounter new opportunities. High-achieving people frequently have all kinds of ventures going on; you never know when they might need a helping hand. You’ll also get to connect with their peer group, who are likely to be very successful as well.
  1. Adjust your attitude. Successful people usually have a positive attitude. That’s what allows them to move forward aggressively. This is not the same as acting foolishly, however.
  • Minor challenges don’t bog them down because they believe that things will work out in the end. They also keep the bigger picture in mind, so minor challenges are just that – minor.
  • If you want to be wealthy, do you have positive attitudes about wealth and wealthy people? If you want to be healthy, do you have a positive outlook about that? Your attitudes must be congruent with your objectives.
  • Everything starts internally; seeing outside changes in your life takes time.
  1. Be organized and focused. Before you go to bed each night, make a list with all the things you want to accomplish the next day. Doing this at night gives your brain a chance to work on things in your sleep. Also, you’ll feel much better when you can start the day with a clear objective instead of spending time trying to figure out what to do.
  2. Have goals. Your brain is tremendously good at finding solutions. You can help it out by doing a good job of outlining and prioritizing your objectives. The simplest way to do this is to write down your goal and include a deadline. Now your brain knows what to work on and when to have it accomplished.
  • Read over your goals at least twice a day to provide mental emphasis that they’re important. We all know how easy it is to get sidetracked by 50 other things and forget all about our goals and plans.

These 4 simple ideas can bring you great power, if you’ll use them to your advantage.

Being successful is really no more challenging than being unsuccessful. Both require specific actions and attitudes applied consistently over a period of time. Make some changes today and give yourself the gift of success.

Martial Arts Habits That Improve Focused

Stay focused and NEVER GIVE UP and live your lifeNijiNoHashiDojo, Martial-Arts, Cary, Morrisville, NC, Ninja, Self-Defense-FOCUSED-WISDOM

Unless you’re a Buddhist monk, you encounter distractions from time to time that minimize your effectiveness in getting your work done.

The internet is especially disrupting with email, messages, status updates, and more. But distractions also include co-workers, family, and our own wandering minds. It seems that we dawdle our lives away five minutes at a time.

The big question is how to defeat this tendency. How can you make use of the Internet constructively without falling victim to its distractive qualities?

Try turning these strategies into daily habits that help you become more efficient and effective:

1. Use time limits. When we set a time limit, we improve our ability to focus. It almost becomes a game of ‘beat the clock’. Ideally, you should use a timer and limit your work periods to around 25 or 55 minutes – with a 5-10 minute break in between tasks. If a task is going to take longer than 55 minutes, break it down into smaller chunks.

• Having a time limit also forces you to do the most important parts of any work. If you only have an hour, you’re going to have to decide what’s most important. This is much better than deciding to simply work on something until it’s done. Decide how long it should take, and then set the timer.
• If you have any sort of attention challenge, using a timer can increase your ability to keep your mind on the task at hand. The time flies by, and you’ll get more done. You’re likely to even find it relaxing, since you’ll be focused on what you’re doing instead of thinking about 20 other things.
Research has shown that the most productive schedule for most people is:

o 50 minutes of work
o 10 minute break
o 50 more minutes of work
o 30 minute break (You might not be able to get away with a 30-minute break at work, but it’s a good time to get up, walk around, and get a drink.) Repeat

Time your breaks. If you decide to check your email or do one of those other tasks that seem to magically go from 5 minutes to 30 minutes or more, using a timer will serve as a reminder. It will also force you to only check on the most important things.

2. Close everything that can be closed. Everything on your computer that isn’t necessary for the task at hand should be closed down. If you don’t need the internet, shut it off. That includes all your email, notifications, games, and blogs. Close your door and unplug the phone, if possible.

• Nothing is going anywhere – it will all still be there when you’re done. One of the keys to being more effective is eliminating the things that make us less effective.

3. Insert a pause, as needed. When you first implement these habits, there will be times that you will have an incredible urge to check your email, Facebook, or Twitter.

• Before you succumb to the urge, take 10 seconds and pause. Take a long, deep breath and ask yourself if you really want to waste your time on something that is largely meaningless, or if you’d rather accomplish something worthwhile.
The ability to focus has been largely lost for many of us. However, these easy habits, which anyone can do, can go a long way toward improving your focus and effectiveness at any task.

It’s likely to be challenging at first, but you can do it. You can get more done, in less time, by learning to improve your focus and avoiding the things that waste your precious time.

Put these three habits into play starting today. You’ll be impressed by how much more you can get done!

Decreasing the pain you experience from arthritis

Effective Solutions To Help You Cope With Arthritis

Niji No Hashi-Dojo-Martial Arts-Cary-Morrisville-North Carolina-ArthritisUnfortunately, arthritis brings pain. When you have to deal with the pain of arthritis on a daily basis, it can be difficult to cope. Fortunately, there are some things that you can do to ease your pain. The following article contains helpful tips for decreasing the pain you experience from arthritis.

If you are a smoker, consider quitting, and if you don’t smoke, avoid cigarettes. Reduced blood flow is a direct result of the nicotine released into your system from smoking cigarettes, and this can increase arthritis inflammation. It also causes joint damage and will result in your arthritis progressing more rapidly than in a non-smoker.

People who drive with arthritis are able to park in handicap spots. This is not widely-known by those afflicted, suffering unnecessarily by not taking advantage of this helping hand.

Although it should only be considered as a last resort in the more extreme cases, if you are at your wits end when it comes to the pain of your arthritis, talk to your doctor about the possibilities of surgery. Joint surgery will help to increase your joint flexibility and can restore your natural movements.

Give yourself a new routine for stretching. A common issue for those suffering from arthritis is a decrease in the flexibility of their joints. Prevention of this issue can be as easy as stretching every muscle at least once daily in your new routine. Begin by stretching your feet, and then gradually move up the length of your body until you reach your head.

TIP! Thinking positive thoughts can help you to cope with arthritis pain. It might sound silly, but a strong mind/body connection does exist.

It sounds unlikely, but relaxing music has some benefit in easing arthritis symptoms. Listening music that relaxes your body helps to ease some of arthritis’ aches and pains. Additionally, you will notice that this type of music can encourage sleeping.

If you have been diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis, you must allow yourself some respite. Your levels of energy are not as high as they once were. Don’t pretend they are, as it can make your symptoms worse. Concentrate your energy on those things that you feel are most important. Sometimes it’s alright to reduce the amount of responsibility you undertake.

When dealing with arthritis, it may be helpful to consult a physical therapist. A physical therapist can help you with establishing a workout that will lessen the pain and inflammation that is due to the arthritis. A good workout can also help improve your flexibility. Follow their advice closely, and you should soon see an increase in flexibility and a reduction in pain.

TIP! For arthritis sufferers, it is important to lose weight if you are overweight or obese. Excess weight just puts more strain and pressure on your arthritic joints, which can make your arthritis even worse.

A cane can be helpful and supportive. Many people who have arthritis refuse to use a walking aid to show they have a disability. If the cane lessens your pain, you will not be as disabled with one as you would be without on. Look for a cane that can be adjusted to your height so it is comfortable for you to use.

Decreasing the pain you experience from arthritis is an important element to maintaining your lifestyle when you have arthritis.

Break activities down into small steps

Transform Your Workouts With the Power of Mental Imagery

Niji No Hashi-Dojo-Martial Arts-Cary-Morrisville-North Carolina-Visualization

As a Martial  Artist Would you like to see your workouts yield better results in less time? Mental imagery is a dynamic way to do just that. When you use visualization to augment your workouts, you work not just your body, but also your brain.

In fact, when it comes to getting fit, your mind may be even more important than your muscles. Here are some practical tips and tricks for using your thinking to maximize your workouts.

Benefits of Visualization

  1. Improve your performance. Studies show that mental activity can produce physical changes in your body. Test subjects who imagine performing an exercise measurably strengthen the muscles involved. Mental imagery can help you lift more weight, develop greater coordination, and play your favorite sports better.
  2. Enjoy your workouts more. Kids have hours of fun with mundane objects because they use their imagination to turn wooden blocks into castles and fortresses. You can have more fun on the treadmill if you picture yourself running along a beach.
  3. Learn principles that work for your whole life. Visualization works outside of the gym too. Once your master the foundational skills, you can extend them to any area of your life, including your personal relationships or career.

Principles of Successful Mental Imagery

  1. A big part of visualization is training your mind to settle down and manage stress. Put aside negative thoughts and focus on your breath. 
  1. Be specific. Make your mental images as concrete as possible. Feel yourself putting on the clothing you wear to work out. Picture the place where you exercise. Analyze every movement you make.
  1. Break activities down into small steps. To capture more detail, it’s helpful to break your total workout down into each movement. You could imagine getting into position to do a leg lift, grasping the bar, raising your leg out to the side, and lowering it smoothly before switching to the other side.
  1. Engage all your senses. Sight is often our most dominant sense, but you can put all of your faculties to work. If you run in the park, think about how the grass smells in the morning and how the gravel feels under your shoes. Listen to your breath and the distant sound of traffic.
  2. Focus on your feelings. Let your emotions run free. Visualization isn’t just a purely intellectual exercise. To achieve maximum success with mental imagery, connect with your feelings about having a leaner body and increased energy.
  3. Time it right. Mental imagery takes practice. Use it while you’re on the way to the gym and during your exercise session. Then practice again by reflecting on your workout later in the day.

Mental Imagery: A Practice

  1. Enter a . Close your eyes. Scan your body and loosen up any tense spots. Take deep breaths from your diaphragm.
  1. Let go of distracting thoughts. Observe your thoughts as they arise without making any judgments. Gently turn your attention to your breath.
  1. Rehearse your movements in your head. When you’ve cleared your head, start thinking about the workout session you have planned. If you’re doing yoga, you could run through every pose you plan to do. Watch yourself using correct form and moving with ease.
  2. Imagine successful outcomes. Identify your fitness goals and incorporate them into your mental imagery. You might like pretending that a crowd cheers you on as you run your final laps. If your doctor recommended losing weight, you might envision feeling gratified to hear that you’ve lost a few inches off your waist and your resting heart rate is down.
  3. Let the good feelings linger. Gather a vivid sense of the positive emotions you generate during visualization. Slowly turn your attention outwards, keeping those pleasant thoughts in mind.

Mental imagery makes exercise more effective and enjoyable and can also be used to augment other parts of your life. Start visualizing your way to increased fitness and better health today!

Secrets to Increasing Your Creativity

Secrets Principles to Increasing Your Creativity: Learn How to Incubate

Niji No Hashi-Dojo-Martial Arts-Cary-Morrisville-North Carolina-Ninja-Secret-Principles 2

 

Many popular theories about creativity break the process into stages. The most mysterious of these intervals is incubation. Over the years, psychological studies and real life breakthroughs have come to suggest the best ways to use this step.

In general, creative thinking starts when you identify an issue and prepare to tackle it. Next, you hit an impasse and decide to take a break. Then, the answer comes to you while you’re taking a shower or getting up from a nap.

That productive rest period before the Eureka moment is called incubation.

Guiding Principles for Effective Incubating
1. Prepare carefully. This is the time to do your research and engage in critical thought. Figure out the challenge you want to solve and state it precisely.

2. Plan ahead. Incubation is more effective when you remind yourself that you’ll be returning to your dilemma later. Look forward to coming back feeling refreshed and full of new answers.

3. Slow down. Think about coming to a gradual stop rather than slamming on the brakes. Allow your body and mind to quiet down. Take a few deep breaths. Relax your neck and shoulders. Observe your thoughts without pursuing them.

4. Choose non-demanding activities. If you spend your break studying calculus or the Peloponnesian War, it’ll be difficult to get anything else done. Devote your time to routine tasks that require little thought.

5. Let your mind wander. Relax and let your thoughts flow. Free yourself from any expectations and see what happens.

6. Eat nutritious foods. Treat your body to a balanced diet full of vegetables, fruits, and other whole foods. Cut down on sugar and replace unhealthy fats like margarine and beef fat with healthier sources like olive oil and salmon.

7. Keep it brief. You may find that the results you want are already close at hand. Short breaks often work better than taking a whole day off. Take it easy for about a half hour.

8. Appreciate the value of sleep. REM sleep unleashes creativity in amazing ways. When you dream, you form associations and consolidate memories. You’re able to see things differently and spot new opportunities.

Practical Strategies to Encourage Incubation

1. Reduce stress. Chronic stress can take a toll on your body and your mind. Find relaxation practices that work for you, like taking a warm bath before bed or meditating each morning.
.

2. Keep a journal by your bed. If your day job keeps you on your feet, make the most of your overnight slumbers. Have a pen and paper handy to jot down your thoughts when you wake up in the wee hours.

3. Meditate daily. Meditation and sleep have similar effects on the brain. Carve out five minutes to sit down and calm your mind.

4. Play with kids. Cut back on weekend appointments so you can spend time goofing around with your kids. Toss a Frisbee or throw a tea party.

5. Flex your creativity. Creative pastimes sharpen your thinking and allow you to express your thoughts and ideas. Experiment with different mediums to discover your strengths. You may want to take up photography or write a novel

6. Exercise outdoors. Connecting with nature always helps. Break out your ice skates or bathing suit depending on the season.

7. Develop a new hobby. Lots of great artists and scientists have engaged in pastimes that created an atmosphere conducive to their accomplishments. For example, Emily Dickinson baked cakes. You may get inspired doing needlework or repairing clocks.

8. Continue learning. Your education is a life-long project. Broaden your horizons through reading, lectures, and classes.
When it comes to triggering creative insights, not all rest is created equal. If you want to boost your creativity, make time to play and harness the power of your dreams. You’ll be surprised with the incredible payoff.

Focus on your accomplishments

Martial Arts Activities That Build Your Self-Confidence

Niji No Hashi Dojo-Martial Arts-Cary-Morrisville-North Carolina-13

Everything becomes easier when you’re brimming with self-confidence. As soon as self-doubt enters your mind, your ability to act is compromised. Self-confidence might seem to rise and fall in a random fashion, but there are steps you can take to increase the level of confidence you experience on a regular basis.

 

Enhance your self-confidence and accomplish more with these techniques:

 

  1. Achieve a goal. Start small. Your goal might be to arrive to work on time every day this week or to eat a piece of fruit each day. Easy goals are easy to accomplish. When you accomplish something, you feel more confident. Choose easy goals that make a difference. The accomplishment of many, small goals will change your level of confidence.

  2. Make a list of your accomplishments. It’s interesting that our failures are easy to list, but our accomplishments require a little more pondering. Make a list of your accomplishments and review them each day. Remember how great you felt in that moment.

  3. Groom yourself to a higher standard. Get a better haircut. Spend a little more time and attention on your grooming each morning. Learn how to apply your makeup more effectively. Trim your beard in a more attractive manner. Trim those stray ear and nose hairs. You’ll be surprised how much better you look and feel.

  4. Be assertive. Having more control over your life results in greater self-confidence. One of the quickest ways to increase the level of influence you have over your life is to be more assertive. Give yourself small tasks to accomplish that require assertiveness. A few examples you might consider:

 

  • Walk into a fast-food restaurant and ask for a cup of water without ordering anything else. It doesn’t matter whether your request is granted. Just ask.
  • Tell your boss one thing you’d like to change about your job or your work environment.
  • Make one suggestion to your significant other that would enhance your relationship.
  1. Dress nicer. We all feel more confident when we’re dressed well. Up your game and put the “nice clothes” in your closet to work for you. Think of your friend or coworker that dresses the best. Shoot for a similar level of clothing while maintaining your own style. It takes the same amount of time to put on a nicer shirt.

  2. Practice breeds confidence. You’ll be much more confident if you practice your speech ten times instead of five. Whether you practice your flirting skills or your ability give presentations, your confidence will increase with practice.
  3. Drop one thing from your life. The odds are high that you’re currently stuck with an obligation in your life that you don’t enjoy. While there are some things in life you have to do, there are just as many that you don’t. Take control and drop one of these non-essential activities that you prefer not to do anyway.
  4. Find a mentor. The right mentor can make all the difference. Knowing that you have an expert on your side is sure to boost your confidence. A good mentor will provide the support and guidance necessary to reach your goals. Good mentors aren’t easy to find, but well worth the effort to locate.

Some of us are blessed with a high level of self-confidence while others must learn to cultivate it. Focus on your accomplishments, be more assertive, and find a mentor. Spend time each day growing your self-confidence and experience real personal growth.

My cognitive strength increases with each day

Reading strengthens my mind.

NIJI NO HASHI DOJO MARTIAL ARTS CARY RECOMMEND BOOKS FOR March 2016

The act of reading exercises my imagination. I am introduced to new vocabulary, concepts, and ideas each time I open a book.

Language is powerful and challenging, and I enjoy the mental stimulation.

When I discover an unfamiliar word, I look it up. Increasing my vocabulary enables me to communicate with greater clarity because I can say exactly what I mean. As my mental dictionary grows, everything I encounter possesses an increased level of definition.

My mind is actively engaged when I read. Afterward, I process and reflect on the material with an open mind.

Encountering beliefs that challenge my own encourages me to research the unknown. In this manner, my reading is augmented by peripheral texts and new venues of literature. I reinforce my knowledge while availing myself to different opinions. Mentally, I gain the ability to see multiple sides of a position.

New ideas sometimes influence my perception, and I develop new methods of contemplating everyday events.

I treat the act of reading the same as physical exercise. I perform it regularly. Just like an exercise routine, I introduce new material to avoid stagnation. When my day is full, I search for small opportunities to read.

My cognitive strength increases with each day.

Today, I look forward to reading something new. I can experience exciting adventures, thoughts, and ideas just by opening a book or with the click of my mouse.
