Become an Asset

On today’s post, I would like to encourage you to do one thing that if you don’t get anything else from this blog, this is one thing that you must do that can dramatically change every area of your life and that is to become an asset.

That’s right! For so many of us it is easy to blame other things, people or situations for our shortcomings, our “failures” whether that be in relationships, money, etc. However, none of this helps. All this does is continue the cycle of misery, frustration and dissatisfaction. I find that the best way to overcome shortcomings, misery, frustration and attracting the wrong things over and over again is by becoming an asset.

Become an asset by working on every area of your life. This means that you work on becoming a better self in every way you can- mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically. So how can you start becoming an asset and in what areas am I referring to?

Become an asset to your family! Everything starts at home. Ensuring that you become the best mother, father, brother, sister, cousin, etc. will help create a very healthy home. This means that you work on being the best version of yourself because you understand that you are a role model for other family members. So make sure you are a good role model to yourself first so you can be a great role model to others.

Become an asset to your husband/wife or companion! You do this by making sure you are in harmony with yourself because you can only offer what you have. This means that you work on any issue you may have, so if you have any hurt or if you are broken, you work towards becoming whole. What constitutes healthy relationships are two whole people. If you realize that you need professional help in order to heal, then go seek that help. You are worth the investment.

Become an asset at work! Always do your best to acquire new skills so that you can have more to add to the work that you do. Do your best to always be grateful for the job that you have. Always strive to be a great coworker for your fellow work colleagues.

Become an asset for your friends! Do this by always striving to make yourself happy so you have more joy to offer to your friends. Always take care of yourself so that you can be that example to your friends. Always strive to be grateful for all you have as a person.

Become an asset to yourself! Yes, you read right. You have to be an asset to yourself. You do this by taking care of your whole body. This means taking care of your mindset, of your spirit and your physical body. This means stating positive affirmations to yourself, doing things that you love, being more loving towards yourself and always striving for happiness. This also means taking yourself away from situations that don’t serve you. This last thing I wrote is a form of love because you don’t allow yourself to be in situations that are harmful to you.

Becoming an asset is about making the effort and taking responsibility for your life. This is crucial to your overall well-being. It all starts with a decision so make a decision to choose yourself first and become an asset.

El sentirse abrumado: Una plaga para su bienestar

El sentirse abrumado nos puede incapacitar y es precisamente por esta razón que tengo que escribir sobre esto en el blog.

El bienestar se trata de gozo, balance, armonía, buena energía y de una vida amorosa. El sentirse abrumado nos quita todo esto y es ahí en donde las enfermedades pueden comenzar. Si usted se siente enfermo, cansado la mayoría del tiempo, mentalmente nublado y con una falta de propósito en la vida y sin gozo, pregúntese si se siente abrumado.

Hay muchas razones por la cual uno se puede sentir abrumado, una de ellas siendo el tener mucho que hacer. Quisiera poner énfasis que el sentirse abrumado no es equivalente al estar ocupado. Una buena amiga mia, Dawn, hizo una distinción muy importante en una de nuestras conversaciones y es esta- el estar ocupado no es equivalente al ser productivo. ¿Por qué siento que es importante mencionar esto? Porque quizás la razón por la cual usted se siente abrumado es por estar ocupado sin ser productivo con su tiempo.

Cuando se siente abrumado, es importante el entender la causa. ¿Se siente así por todas las responsabilidades que tiene? Se es así, ¿por qué? ¿Será que usted se siente abrumado porque desea algunos cambios en su vida? Si es así, ¿cuáles son esos cambios que usted desea? ¿Se siente usted abrumado a causa de una relación que usted tiene? Si es así, pregúntese por qué.

Muchas veces el sentirse abrumado viene de alguna insatisfacción que uno actualmente tiene y no nos damos cuenta. Es por esto que escribo una y otra vez que es importante el prestarle atención a sus emociones. Es importante aceptarlas. Ellas son información del alma. Al ignorar sus emociones, usted está ignorando información importante de su verdadera esencia.

Cuando se siente abrumado, es importante aceptarlo, quedarse con ese sentimiento por un rato y entenderlo. Cuando usted toma el tiempo de entenderlo, usted sabrá qué pasos tomar para poder sentirse mejor.

Entonces, si usted actualmente se siente abrumado, quisiera animarlo a que lo acepte, se quede con ese sentimiento por un rato y que lo entienda. No evite el sentirse así porque sino usted se perderá de información importante que puede llevarlo a un cambio grande y a un mejor bienestar.
