Living in the Infinite

Good Morning Everyone!

This is an important post to me because I would like to share two things…

First, an interview done by one of my favorite authors Simon Sinek… His discussion about the Infinite Possibilities and shifting our way of thinking in business and in leading teams… I will let him explain more, and you will see the great examples he makes for his arguments..

“People don't buy what you do; they buy why you do it. And what you do simply proves what you believe” 
― Simon Sinek, Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action

Secondly, I want you to know how Powerful you Truly are. Read the whole post. Focus, and find a quiet place to think.

What I have to say is Valuable information for You.

In moments of transformation, we can inspire others.

"The true secret of happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life." - William Morris

What if I told you

Written by: Isabella Uribe

All you have is this moment.

What if I told you,

You only have right now

  • Would you spend your time right now differently?

  • Would you look at people in a different way? 

  • Would you think about yourself in a different way?

  • Would you even think of your self image?

Would you focus on what really matters to you? 

  • Maybe you would make that phone call or visit someone you’ve been avoiding…

  • Maybe you would go to that country you have been DYING to visit…

  • Maybe you would spend that extra hour sitting at the table with your loved one…

  • Would you spend an extra hour with your team?

  • Maybe you would go to the dog shelter and hug a few dogs

  • Maybe make a call to your grandparents just to say Thank you

What would You Do?

This isn’t a negative question, on the contrary! This is a question of Opportunity. A question of Urgency.

You get to live the life You envision.

“What if?”, and “What would you do?” are huge questions that I always ask myself as a point of reflection.

There was a quote I was told as I was growing up.. If this situation isn’t going to matter in 5 years, why spend 5 minutes of your life on it? Reflection is a great tool and becoming aware of our patterns, and can support our journey to becoming better beings.

How can you become a better?

Get feedback. What are the limits you are setting for yourself? What is the image you are creating of your self? Are you being pictured as the perfectionist? The procrastinator? The micro manager?

This is my drive.

To inspire having an awareness Of this precise moment.

If You are spending your precious time to read this…

I hope for one second

You can see how valuable

Every second you have is.

We are not victims of our situation. We are the architects of it.

Ritually provides insights on what you can try,

RIGHT NOW,

in your daily life.

Whether it is a traditional Japanese tea ritual, to a simple mindful walk in your closest park. 

I am here support you on your journey, towards a Daily Practice, and to inspire Self Love, and Mind Expansion.

There are only two ways to influence human behavior: you can manipulate it or you can inspire it.

Very few people or companies can clearly articulate WHY they do WHAT they do. By WHY I mean your purpose, cause or belief

  • WHY does your company exist?

  • WHY do you get out of bed every morning?

  • WHY should anyone care?

People don’t buy WHAT you do, they buy WHY you do it.

”We are drawn to leaders and organizations that are good at communicating what they believe. Their ability to make us feel like we belong, to make us feel special, safe and not alone is part of what gives them the ability to inspire us. For values or guiding principles to be truly effective they have to be verbs. It’s not “integrity,” it’s “always do the right thing.” It’s not “innovation,” it’s “look at the problem from a different angle.” Articulating our values as verbs gives us a clear idea - we have a clear idea of how to act in any situation. Happy employees ensure happy customers. And happy customers ensure happy shareholders—in that order. Leading is not the same as being the leader. Being the leader means you hold the highest rank, either by earning it, good fortune or navigating internal politics. Leading, however, means that others willingly follow you—not because they have to, not because they are paid to, but because they want to.” - Simon Sinek

You don’t hire for skills, you hire for attitude. You can always teach skills.

Reading through his book, I realize that over all the skills that I will learn, there must first be a vision and goal that I work towards.. I can lean more about sound healing, I can go to a yoga training, become a Reiki master… you know what I mean….

Before all else… with Ritually… My promise to you… Yes, you,

I am committed to Always share with you the open and infinite view on loving and taking care of the first person you need to look for, Yourself.

This is not a selfish act,

this is reality.

If you are balanced in your being,

then you can support and grow,

your dreamS,

your passions,

and your community.

Have a great week, sending positive energy to you this week, and hope this created reflection in your life today!

Curious about Myself

Paleo, Vegan, Pegan, Keto, Atkins, Gluten Free, Non-GMO, Alkaline, Kosher, Low Sodium… so many terms!

What are we supposed to eat now-a days?

Should I just eat vegetables and fruit?

How much is too much fruit?

Kale causes issues with female hormones if consumed too often.

Carrots cause carrageenan poisoning? Am I a Flamingo?

Raw or Cooked? Blackened or grilled may cause cancer? Aluminum foil may cause Alzheimer’s?

Dairy should we have it? Maybe Ghee is better? Isn’t it dairy at the end of the day?

For over 4 years I have tried and explored all different types of diets and eating habits… Figuring out what works for me! Eliminating, trying new recipes, following different doctors, learning about Ayurveda, and saving MANY Pinterest recipes…

I was recommended to try an immunology test recently, which tests my blood with over 54 different chemicals and food ingredients. They then analyze the reactions and conclude what you may or may not be “allergic” too. I was pretty aware of a few of them, but was definitely surprised by a lot of them! Every since moving to a more vegan plant based diet, and replacing my meals with plant based protein, I could tell something was off. It has been a month of me being vegan, and as much I enjoyed it, it’s clearly not working with my body. I am beginning to be more creative with the meals I can eat.

The results show that I am reactive to: Almonds, Barley, Lima Beans, Cashew Nuts, Catfish, Coconut, Eggs (!!!), Flounder, Garlic, Ginger, Lobster, Cow’s Milk, Filbert Nuts, Peas, Peanuts, Perch, Pork, Rice (my life), Rye, Sesame, Soybean, Tuna, Walnuts, and Wheat.

I am going to eat consciously around this for 6 months, and see the impacts on my body. Let’s see! If you’re curious to know more about this, leave a comment below!

and now with my focus in sustainability, I have become an advocate for choosing responsibly what you are putting in your mouth, and buying from suppliers.

Do you know where your avocados are coming from? Do you know what the chickens are fed to create the perfect egg? Do we even know what is being sprayed on our Spinach and Apples that we love so dearly?

It’s shocking…

What can You, and We do right now?

  1. Follow organizations and individuals in your community that are making a difference. Share their content, quotes, tidbits of knowledge.

  2. Learn how to improve your household, your habits, and inspire those around you.

  3. Share this article with friends and family and start the conversation on what nutrition and eating ethically means to you.

1/6 Rituals That Have Impacted my Life

REFLECTIONS IN LIFE... something I make sure to do at least once a week. Keep myself in check

After my injury on September it has been a slow yet steady process of getting back to my normal active lifestyle. From going to yoga once a week and working out 3 to 5 times, to barely walking more than 2 miles a day... Not fun for me.

What was the upside of having to dealing with this condition? Having the chance to use my time on other opportunities, and slow down! I sometimes forget like I bet many of us do, that it is OK to take a break. It is OK to relax on the beach. It is OK to listen to our bodies when we feel under the weather. 

I have the issue sometimes of overcommitting and it has been a journey that I will continue to practice of saying, "No". It's wonderful to keep your options open, but it gets to the point where you have said "Yes" to way too much! Focus on what you're really values are and work on those! It's not easy. It's hard. That's the real truth... but I have some some tips if you feel like this may be happening in your life.

1. Breathe

I can't explain HOW important this is for each of us. Be aware of your core balance. Today after my weekly morning practice, I was discussing with a friend of mine the importance of learning how to breathe and it's benefits when learning to be self-aware in decisive moments.

2. Visualize all of your commitments, DRAW them out! 

3. Ask yourself, "Is this really helping me?"  Is it REALLY? 

4. Now IMPLEMENT. You are now AWARE, and have the power to make a difference. So GO FOR IT! 

Here's an example of how I have used this in my life,

I was a part of the Student Government in our university. I realized although I believed it was a beneficial experience I was dedicating a lot of time to something that I really wasn't enjoying and needed to be spending more of that time on things that will enrich my career goals, like spending more of my time with my Entrepreneurship club. 

"Society tells us that successful people are busy. Think about the CEO’s, famous law firm partners, crazy celebrities, politicians, the rich and famous “leaders” of society. They’re just so successful that they’re super in demand, always taking phone calls, going to meetings, cutting ribbons, giving speeches, running shit like events and parties. Successful people just have so many successful things going on that they need to always be doing these successful people things."   This article gives a strong opinion on overcommitting, click here . You may find this useful, you may not.... Check it out. Share your thoughts! 

I am not a professional in any shape or form. This is only from personal experience and vouched by many conversations with friends and family.

If you're somewhat feeling this way, and may need some friendly guidance, I am Willing and would love to help. Maybe you've gone through this in your life already, if so Share! Comment below. I'd love to hear your opinions and gain more feedback.
