G.K. Chesterton

“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”
Robert Brault

“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”

Just a heads up today.

The most popular promotions I have done in the last few years have been for the free Ultimate You Mindfest. Over 3000 Positivity Blog / Positivity Newsletter readers have signed up for it in the past three years and listened to the guided meditations called Paraliminals.

So I wanted to let you know that Learning Strategies is having another Mindfest that starts now on Monday, the 1:st of December. And it is a sort of a follow up to the popular Paraliminals program mentioned above.

It is called The Sonic Access Mindfest and each day for 4 days you’ll be able to stream a new Paraliminal. And you get access to the Goal Setting Paraliminal as soon as you have signed up.

The topics for this Mindfest and the recordings are success, health, relationships and spiritual growth.

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”

“People throw away what they could have by insisting on perfection, which they cannot have, and looking for it where they will never find it.”
Edith Schaeffer

One common way to get things done, to achieve and to motivate yourself is to be kind of hard on yourself.

To set very high standards for yourself that you want to stick to every time.

Now, this way of going about things can indeed help you to accomplish big things in your life and to get things done every week.

But it comes at a price.
