A Wealth of Wisdom  I believe in creating your own reality, feeding your mind good stuff, and doing what excites you. Created & run by Ruben Chavez.

When I say this, people often assume their excitement needs to be in the form of some grand idea or life passion. It doesn't.
-
What I literally mean is: take the time to get in touch with the small, everyday things that spark your interest. Then act on those things to the fullest extent that you possibly can. Repeat this process ad infinitum.
-
Why is this important? Because these little things are the "clues" that will lead you to the bigger things (i.e. purpose, passion, etc). This process has worked for me, for many people I've observed, and probably for many people that you admire.
-
The tricky part is that people don't know what excites them because they’ve ignored and suppressed their instinct to act on the things that bring them joy in the name of being a "responsible adult." We must lose this mentality if we want to create a magical life. In the words of The Alchemist, "The Soul of the World is nourished by people's happiness."

Lately I've been feeling like I'm the middle of an intense period of growth. I've been spending a lot of my time diving deep into subjects I've always wondered about but didn't know a lot about. It's so satisfying. Anyone relate?

Comment 3 things you like about yourself then tag 3 friends to do the same.
I'll start:
1. I like that I take ownership of my education daily.
2. I like my ability to adopt empowering beliefs and let go of limiting ones.
3. I like how disciplined and attentive to detail I am.

Don't make the mistake of ignoring the things you are drawn to just because they seem trivial or unrelated to your larger goals. It's not your job to know how they're connected, it's your job to take action on the things that spark your interest and pique your curiosity.

I'm beyond grateful for @banessaloya. But a big part of what makes our relationship so special is that we are both complete on our own.
-
Don't wait for someone to save you. Save yourself instead. Rather than searching for the person of your dreams, focus on becoming the person of your dreams and you'll be more likely to find the right person.
-
Get on the same wavelength of the thing you want to attract. You want love? Learn to love yourself. You want companionship? Become your own best friend. Match the frequency of your desires in order to manifest them in your life.
-
When you focus your energy on becoming the best version of yourself, the rest will eventually work itself out. What's your opinion on this?

Today is my birthday and as such, I think it's a great day for some self-reflection (as if I needed an excuse lol). I took inventory of a few of my values I hold dear and wrote a blog post about them. The link is in my bio if you want to take a look ☝️
-
A question I'm often asked is: "How do I stay motivated?" My answer is simple: Get clear on your values.
-
A big reason people lack the motivation to do the things they say they want to do is because they haven’t taken the time to figure out what's truly important to them (aka what motivates them). They haven’t crystallized their values.
-
Values are simply the things you believe to be important. They are your "Whys" -- your reasons for doing what you do.
-
You can tell what your values are by your actions. If you value something, you prioritize it. On the other hand, if you say you value something but your actions don’t back it up, then it’s not really a value. It's just an aspiration.
-
In my blog post, I reveal the underlying beliefs that drive each of my above values, along with a brief description of how each value manifests in my life. Click the link in my bio to read the full post ☝️

I’d love to hear what you value most! What are some of the things that drive YOU? Comment your 3 highest values below 👇

That last point is major 🔑
When you trust your own path, you don't need to prove the other is wrong.
*
If anyone believes they have to force a point of view on someone else, they probably don't believe in the power of that point of view themselves. The idea of forcing your point of view on someone else is an expression of powerlessness.
*
Sharing your experiences & perspectives with others = cool. But looking down on others for thinking, believing, or living differently than you do = NOT cool.
*
It takes sooooo much energy to impose your will on others. I know because I used to do it constantly. (Always for their own good, of course 😜)
*
When I stopped worrying about what others were doing and started focusing on my own personal development, my stress levels decreased and my joy increased. I highly recommend it. What do you think?

Here's my typical daily routine. It's nothing groundbreaking but I've found that sticking to this specific template helps me stay focused and feel good consistently:
-
1. Wake
2. Drink lots of water
3. Smoothie (coffee/cacao/superfoods)
4. Workout
5. Read or listen to audio book
6. Create/write/do stuff that excites me

Growth comes in all different shapes and sizes. It's not always noticeable to an outside observer. Sometimes, you are the only one who knows you're growing. For example, setbacks are often a period of personal growth.
-
To me, growth is gaining a greater understanding about myself and the world around me. It's becoming better than I was yesterday. It's progressing toward a goal that matters to me and appreciating the steps along the way.
-
What's one way you've grown recently?

Whatever you give focused and intense energy or emotion to is what you will tend to experience more of. This is true whether that energy/emotion is positive or negative. Emotions like love, fear, gratitude and anger are all highly energized states and have potent creative power.
-
So when you let fear be your dominating emotion about something, you are also simultaneously bringing it to life and making it more real. The same thing happens when you let gratitude be your dominating emotion about something.
-
If you do not want something in your life, focus on the opposite of it. Focus on the solution. Resist the temptation to only focus on the problem. Acknowledge the issue, but put most of your energy into creating the reality you prefer.
-
Promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate. Talk about your blessings more than your burdens. Focus on what you would like to experience more of and you will draw more things like it into your life.

Don't fall into the trap of never being satisfied with what you have. It's easy to continually distract yourself with bigger goals, but it can be difficult to appreciate your life as it is right now.
-
This tendency is natural. For 99% of the time that humans have existed on this planet, being happy or at peace meant danger or death. We had to stay on our toes just to stay alive.
-
Even though we're no longer being chased by saber tooth tigers, that part of our brain hasn't changed. Practicing gratitude can help remind us that our life is actually pretty damn good, all things considered.
-
A PERSONAL EXAMPLE:
Ever since I was introduced to entrepreneurship by my first mentor when I was 18, it's been my goal to not only work for myself, but also have freedom of time and location.
-
When I finally reached that goal in 2014, I was SO excited. But eventually, the novelty and newness of the accomplishment wore off and I adjusted to a new normal. In fact, most of my peers and friends that I had made along the way were doing even "better" than I was!
-
It would've been easy for me to slip into a place where I was always dissatisfied with where I was at. But I caught myself before I fell into that trap. I reminded myself that I had achieved something I had been fantasizing about for a decade!
-
Once I really let that thought sink in, I was instantly filled with gratitude. And although I sometimes still have challenging days, I always go back to gratitude. Gratitude for how far I've come. Gratitude for where I'm at. Gratitude for where I'm going.
-
If you always think "success" is just around the corner with the next job, the next lover, the next achievement, it will never come. Make it a habit to celebrate small wins and milestones along the way to your larger goals.
