Are You a Seeker of Truth & Knowledge? The Guide to Questioning Everything

Are You a Seeker of Truth & Knowledge? The Guide to Questioning Everything | The Butterfly Maiden Project | Scoop.it

As a true seeker of truth and knowledge, for every question to which you think you already have an answer, you are willing to ’unlearn’ what was taught, preached, and/or programmed into your psyche. The truest mark of a seeker is the ability to approach life with the open-mindedness of a child. Ask new questions to old answers.

Feeling Overwhelmed by Creative Options? Refuse to Choose!

Feeling Overwhelmed by Creative Options? Refuse to Choose! | The Butterfly Maiden Project | Scoop.it

Unlike people who are satisfied with one area of interest, you’re genetically wired to pursue many areas, and that’s exactly what you’ve been trying to do. But because your behavior is unfamiliar – even unsettling – to the people around you, you’ve been taught that you’re doing something wrong and told you must decide on one path.”

Working Up to Start Juicing

Working Up to Start Juicing | The Butterfly Maiden Project | Scoop.it

It’s no coincidence that I’ve found myself at a place in my life where I need to make some changes. Funny how easy it is to become complacent, even with our highest priorities. I didn’t just wake up one morning rejecting my former healthy habits – no, I let them slip away from me one by one.


Big breath in, as I continue working up to start juicing as a catalyst for improving my physical well-being.

Rejecting Hypocrisy: My Motivation to Start Juicing

Rejecting Hypocrisy: My Motivation to Start Juicing | The Butterfly Maiden Project | Scoop.it

In less than a week, my life may drastically change as I start juicing. Hypocrite : a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings" As much as I hate to admit it, I am currently a hypocrite.

 

I teach and preach holistic wellness. I coach other people on the necessity of a balanced life – the mind-body-soul connection. The majority of people I work with pay more attention to their bodies and mind, and need my help to address spiritual and emotional aspects.
In the last year or so, you could find me at the opposite end of the spectrum. Sure, my emotional and spiritual health is sound, but I have paid very little attention to my physical body.

 

I’m finally ready to make the commitment to change, but I don’t want to jump in half-cocked. I’ve been diligently reading, prepping, getting ready to commit. I’m seriously contemplating a 5 day vegetable juicing cleanse, followed up by a 21 day sugar detox.

60 Inconvenient Personal Development Truths

60 Inconvenient Personal Development Truths | The Butterfly Maiden Project | Scoop.it

Personal Development Without The Hand Holding?

 

Ever feel like the road to personal transformation is a rocky one, with potholes you have difficulty getting around?

 

Are you putting in the effort and seeing everything around you shift and change and seeing no difference in your life?

 

This article lays out 60 hard-hitting but potentially life changing "inconvenient truths" that could transform your life, relationships and happiness level with a series of simple perspective shifts.

 

CJ|IE

 

 

 

I know you want to be the best you can be. We all do. But sometimes we look for success in the wrong places or we try to achieve it in the wrong ways.

 

Here are 60 inconvenient truths about personal development to help you stay on track.

 

The acquisition of knowledge doesn’t mean you’re growing. Growing happens when what you know changes how you live. You can’t have good ideas unless you’re willing to generate a lot of bad ones. A good idea without action is nothing at all. It’s not so much about finding opportunities as it is about creating them. 10% of our lives is decided by uncontrollable circumstances. 90% is decided by how we react to those circumstances. What we don’t start today won’t be finished by tomorrow. If you’re waiting for the perfect conditions, ideas or plans to get started, you’ll never achieve anything.

Welll, don't be too intimidated or even bored by the long list... they are perls... OK, you've met perhaps even each (don't think so but might be...) but it's such a goog arrangements to have them together and need nt read a whole book (though there are recommendations within about some)... it is worth even to copy it out to recheck them from time to time... good reading and thinking about them....

Before you know it you’ll be asking, “How did it get so late so soon?” So take time to figure yourself out. Take time to realize what you want and need. Take time to take risks. Take time to love, laugh, cry, learn, and forgive. Life is shorter than it often seems.

Are you a SURTHRIVER? (Echolalia)

"Surthrivers" are people who take what life hands them and not only deal with the situation, but find a way to thrive -- to grow stronger -- because of what they have survived. Surthrivers make their mark in the world by combining a realistic, hopeful attitude with one of graciousness and wonder. Things don't always go their way, but they play whatever hand they are given. Sometimes they win, sometimes they lose. Their joy is derived from simply playing the game.
