It’s time to take responsibility for all of the emotions within us. No one else did that to us, even if it seems very much like they did, and holding onto it serves nothing.
It’s interesting to think about why we like feeling punished, feeling beaten up or trodden on. And I know people might say – ‘I don’t like it’ but I beg to differ. There is an aspect of us that loves drama, loves the pain of it all and wants to hold onto every painful memory as if it only just occurred. And that is what it’s time to wake up from.
That’s not you. And that’s not me. That’s not who or what we really are.
The other night I watched an inspiring online video by the go-getter who started the publishing company MindValley, Vishen Lakhiani. In my view MindValley is potentially the new Hay House of our day.
In this video he was talking to an audience about how he built his multi-million dollar company and about what the key difference was, from achieving little to achieving and exceeding all of his goals.
You can watch the video here:
But that is not what this post is about….
This post is about a word he used that I instantly fell in love with and have been using daily.
The word is:
Or Bliscipline. Which ever floats your boat.
It’s about having discipline to align your thoughts, feelings and actions with what brings you happiness.
For example: eating chocolate right now might be pleasurable but it would make me tired later on. So that is not in alignment with what I really want. What will bring me deeper and more fulfilling happiness and bliss. Alternatively I could eat an apple and do some study. This is in direct alignment with what will bring me the most fulfillment and joy, as well as keep me on track for future happiness, success and fulfillment.
This word is great because it reminds you why you are doing something – or not doing something as it may go. As opposed to the word discipline which unfortunately usually reminds us of feeling deprived or told off.
So add some bliss to your day whilst also sticking with your path of highest joy and success!
