Falling into negativity will rob you of seeing the opportunities

Being an entrepreneur can be a lonely journey at times, there could be days, sometimes even weeks before you start seeing any clients or selling any products at all. It’s easy to fall into depression and throwing in the towel could seem like the only choice that you have.

Falling into negativity will rob you of seeing the opportunities, it could even feel like doors are closing on your face. When this starts to happen, not only must you use positive affirmations but you must start to believe that more doors filled with abundance are opening up to you.

In order to change your reality you must believe that there is a better reality out there. Robert Kiyosaki responded to the question “What kept him going?” in the following manner “It is not what I believe, it is what you believe exists. If you think such a world exists for you, then you’ll go through the looking glass”.

For people in business questioning yourself over and over again about why you started on this journey, usually brings the answers to you. For some it was to avoid the pain of having to work hard for someone else to reap the financial rewards, for others it was the pleasure of having free time to do the things you love and making money doing that.

GRATITUDE

GRATITUDE

Spiritual speaker South Africa
Life Coach Johannesburg

As the Law of the Universe prescribes, what you focus on expands. Whether you focus on lack or abundance, what you put out into the Universe is what you will get back. This is how it was for thousands of years and this is how it shall forever be.

If what you focus on expands, isn’t it a good idea to focus on things that you want instead of focusing on things that you do not want. If you are grateful for what you now have you shall be blessed with more in the future. If you focus on your lack now, less shall be given to you, or even worse, that which you have will be taken from you.

If we look at life in that light we will be thanking everyone that does even a little thing for us. Each day upon waking, if you are grateful for your good health, you shall be blessed with even greater health. Each day when you go to work, be grateful for your job, and you shall be blessed with better opportunities. When you are grateful for the money that you’ve earned you will be blessed with more even a thousand fold.If you are grateful for the people in your life, you will be blessed with many many years with them.

Thanking people whenever you get an opportunity, brightens the day of two people, when you give a smile or a thank you, it is more rewarding to be the giver, then your soul will smile and the Universe will shower you eternal smiles. Expect nothing, do not hold out barter,and nothing will be expected of you. Give with your heart and only good things will be bestowed upon you. Gratitude begets plentitude, that is the law of life and that should be the attitude of your life.

BE FEARLESS

Business Coach - Suyan Budhoo

In years gone by adults used fear to get children to pray or attend church and yet they spoke of a loving and merciful God.  What then do we expect our children to believe? How can God punish us and still be loving.

The youth of today however do not believe in such superstitious religion and why should they, when we have also encouraged them to think for themselves and enquire into the meaning of science, technology, philosophy and poetry.  Why not enquire about God?  We should not be afraid of opening up our minds to questions like Who is God? What is religion? Why am I here? and Who am I? for the fear of stumbling upon the truth.

Executive Coach South Africa

Who am I? this is a question that some religions do not encourage for the fear of opening up a can of worms.  What if a child learns that he is gay, or if he wants to become an artist instead of a Doctor, or wants to explore another religion.  These are the type of fears parents have and sometimes instead of allowing our children to explore who they are we burden them with unfair expectations.

Fear in most cases are unwarranted, we worry about some future event that in any case may never occur.  If you have faith in your parenting skills and in the way you bring your children up then there is no need to fear.  Your children should therefore be encouraged to explore who or she is.  We as parents cannot teach our children, the child teaches himself.  Our duty is to afford opportunities and remove obstacles for his growth.

Life Coach Suyan Budhoo

Fear of some future event can cause unnecessary stress and may become your death in a form of some disease.  Being held captive by fear can be hell, playing games with your mind, this is unrighteousness, this is not the way God intended us to live our lives.  Living in fear is like being in prison, it is more important to have a free mind than it is to have a free body.  What good is it to live in this world, if we are always afraid to enjoy the benefits of this freedom.

“All the negative thoughts and ideas that are in this world have proceeded from this evil spirit of fear.  Therefore I say Be Fearless, be fearless”  Swami Vivekananda

WHAT IS KARMA?

Suyan Budhoo - Spiritual Coach

The word karma has its origin in Hinduism, and a loose literal translation would mean ones deeds and the effect such deeds yield. It is often misconstrued that karma only means punishment for past misdeeds, however this is not true. A good and merciful God also rewards the good actions of a good man.

Although this is a concept that had its origin in Hinduism, it does not belong exclusively to the Hindu’s. I have found this concept in the Bible as well “ As you sow, so shall you reap”, and its meaning- you will be rewarded or punished as per your actions. If we understand and accept all that is found in the Bible and the Vedas, as spiritual beings, why are we still struggling to rise above everyday challenges.

Suyan Budhoo - Business Mentor and Coach Durban

Right living is simple as explained in our great books, it is the interpreters who have complicated it by over analysing and defaming the original message. The original meaning is that we should act in a way that is pleasing to God in order to get the rewards that we deserve as we can see from various religions.

Krishna–“Fixing your heart on Me, you will overcome every difficulty by My grace; but if from self-conceit you do not listen to Me, you shall perish utterly.”

Mohammed–“If you rely upon God as He ought to be relied upon, He will provide you as He provides the birds: they go out empty and hungry in the morning and come back big-bellied at eventide.”

Native American–“All things give thanks to You, O Wakan-Tanka, who are merciful, and who help us all. We ask all this of You because we know that You are the only One, and that You have power over all things!”

Executive Coach in South Africa

All religions believe that we receive our rewards and punishment either in this life or in death. However Hinduism, because of its belief in rebirth believe that if we do not receive our benefits and punishment in this life, same can and will be meted out to us in our next life.

This theory to me, as a Hindu makes sense, how else do you explain the difference between the place, family, society and circumstances in which people are born. It is said in the vedas that our previous life determines this life and what we do in this life determines the circumstances of our next life.

Karma is the intertwined knot that has no beginning and no end, this symbolizes the interlinking of cause and effect, if you desire only positive results act only in a positive manner.

WHAT IS RELIGION?

Life coach in south africaThe answer to this question is as vast as the heavens above. This is my attempt to explain what religion means to me. Religion lies not only in churches, temples or mosques, neither is it to be found exclusively in our holy books.

Practises such as genuflexions and meditation, visiting these holy places and reading such books are good in that it helps us to focus on something greater than ourselves and channel our energy towards positivity. These actions are good if they stimulate us to perform deeds for the good of our fellow man and it lifts our thoughts towards divine perfection. It is important to acknowledge that there is a God and we be allowed to pray to him in whatever form we choose.

Suyan Budhoo - Spiritual Coach South AfricaReligion is so much more than what we learn at Sunday school. It is about acknowledging the uniqueness of every man, appreciating the differences and still finding enough similarity to live in harmony with each other. In whatever form you may worship there are common threads in every religion. I believe that religion is seeing the good in man, being good and doing, that is the true essence of religion.

Below we find that this is confirmed in every religion on earth.Executive coach in Pretoria“Sri Ramakrishna – I have now come to a stage of realization in which I see that God is walking in every human form and manifesting Himself alike through the sage and the sinner, the virtuous and the vicious.”

“Buddha – Goodwill toward all beings is the true religion; cherish in your hearts boundless goodwill to all that lives.”

“Jesus Christ – But I say unto you, love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.”

“Mohammed – All God’s creatures are His family; and he is the most beloved of God who tries to do most good to God’s creatures.”

Being good requires less effort than some people may realise and the rewards are in abundance.

LOOKING FOR MEANING

Our interpretation of events are based solely upon our personal perspective and opinion. We are sometimes biased about certain events due to the incorrect perspective we have taken in interpreting such a situation.

As the only life force that can think and reason shouldn’t we be using this “power” in a more effective way? I truly believe that nothing happens in our life by pure co-incidence or luck. Everything, from the birth of a baby to going through a divorce happens by design. If, instead of mourning certain events, we look for the meaning behind it, we are sure to come out of any situation stronger.

Suyan Budhoo - Spiritual Speaker South Africa

There will be situations in your life that may seem beyond your control, like losing a job for example, but many who have gone through this will tell you in retrospect it was the best thing that could have happened to them, and there will still be others who tell you it was the worst thing that happened in their lives. What sets these two groups of people apart despite facing similar situations?

Career Coach - Suyan Budhoo

It is their perspective or interpretation of the situation that either strengthens you or destroys you. Perspective around a situation normally comes from our past experiences, upbringing or social situation but mostly from whether you have a positive or negative mind-set. Past experiences, upbringing and social situations are all external factors that should have very little baring on how we choose to think and live our lives. I am not denying the fact that society matters or that your past is important. All I am saying is that you should not let those external factors determine where you are going.

Once you realise that there is meaning behind everything, you will start looking for the positive in every situation. Initially it is difficult, especially if you are or was a pessimist, but once you realise that it does not help your current situation to mope around or stress about the events in your life, it will become easier to look for the meaning behind everything.

Business Coach Johannesburg

A negative mind does not bear positive fruit, this is what you need to realise when working through a difficult situation. Once you manage to clear your mind of all negativity then only will you awaken to the maxim that anything is possible.
