Ride the Vibrational Wave to Happiness

Ride the Vibrational Wave to Happiness

What is Vibration?

For those of you who are familiar with Law of Attraction, the following introduction, might be a little too basic for you. Bear with me. For those of you who are not so familiar with Law of Attraction, at its most basic, the concept is that like attracts like. Or as I like to say like vibration attracts like vibration. What do I mean? Well, when you break it down to its most fundamental level, we’re nothing but big balls of energy vibrating at a frequency that is perceptible by our senses. In fact, everything in our world is nothing but big balls of energy vibrating at different frequencies.

What’s meant by “perceptible by our senses” is that a frequency falls within the ranges of our senses (i.e. we can see it, and/or hear it and/or taste it and/or smell it and/or touch it). There is a lot of things in our world that our senses cannot detect, but still exist. Electricity, radio waves, and ultraviolet waves come to mind.

In this context, like vibration attracts vibration means that we attract things that are vibrating on the same frequency that we vibrate at. How do we know what frequency we’re vibrating at? The answer lies in how we feel. Feeling appreciative, for example, vibrates at a different frequency than feeling sad. In fact, we vibrate on a whole spectrum of frequencies, directly correlating to how we feel. On one end of the spectrum, there are feelings such as love, appreciation, happiness, and optimism. On the other end of the spectrum, there are feelings such as hate, anger, sadness and pessimism. And there’s a whole bunch of frequencies (i.e. feelings) that fall in between.

Quickest way to manifest, or is it?

With this understanding, the quickest way to manifest anything you want in life, then, is to get on the vibrational frequency of whatever it is you want before getting it. So if you want money, for example, then you have to feel abundant before the manifestation of money comes. If you want to find love, then you have the feel love and feel loved. And so on and so forth. In other words, you have to feel good about whatever desire you want before you want it. While this advice is spot on in regards to helping you achieve your dreams, reality can sometimes be quite different.

Case in point, how easy is it for you to feel abundant when the first of the month rolls around and a whole whack load of bills come in? Or how can you get in the frequency of feeling love when it seems like you’re the only person in the world, who is single on Valentine’s Day? How healthy can you feel when you’re in any sort of pain?

It’s very tough. Not only can it bring you down about that particular subject, but it can also bring you down, period. So, is there a remedy for this all too common issue? Fortunately, there is, and that’s what this Life Hack article is about.

Riding the vibrational wave

I call it riding the vibrational wave, and it goes like this. Find a way to feel good about anything other than your object(s) of desire and then ride that good feeling into the object of desire. So, if it’s money you desire and you feel negative about money, then shift your focus and make an effort to feel good about something else, that’s easier to feel good about. Maybe you like your job, or your kids, or your home or the way you look, or maybe you like watching Sunday Football.  It doesn’t matter really. Once you’re in a good state then (and only then) come back to the subject of money.

And when you do, be careful not to jump into an area of that subject that has a high negative emotional charge. Keeping with the example of money, if you get down every time you pay your bills, don’t pay your bills right after getting yourself in a good feeling place. Find something else about the subject of money that you at least feel neutral about (ideally you’d like to visit an aspect of money that you feel good about, if possible). And then start to think about money in such a way that makes you feel good. Examples can include, “I have a steady income ensuring that I can at least pay for the fundamentals of life” or “Money is the engine of a lot of amazing things in this world including; charity, medicine, academic research, helping people etc.” or “Money has given me many amazing experiences in my life like vacations and schooling and times out with friends”. You get the point.

You can do this with any subject matter. If you desire a relationship, then don’t think about your crummy ex-partners, for example. Go more general, and think about your amazing friendships (a relationship is still a relationship) or think about the times your life was enriched through interactions with other people, or go online and find 20 people (on a dating website) who is of potential interest to you. Again, focus on an aspect of relationships that is at least neutral if not positive.

When it comes to your health, once you feel good, start focusing on the parts of your body that are going right. Maybe you can walk with no problem, or your senses are all working wonderfully, or you can go to the washroom by yourself, or the fact that all of your organs are working in perfect order without any input from you. The things to appreciate about your body are almost endless if you give it a little bit of thought.

How to raise your vibration

So how do you get to a place of feeling good? Well, there are many ways to do that. Appreciation for the things you have in your life is one of the quickest and easiest ways. Taking even 5 minutes to write down everything you appreciate in your life will have a big effect. There are other ways as well. The following article highlights 33 ways in which you can feel good (or raise your vibration in the law of attraction speak). Examples include getting outside in nature for a while, trying something new, unplugging (after reading this article of course), and more. You’ll start to notice a shift in how you feel, and once you do, then you can ride the wave to the object of your desire.

And if you follow the advice in this article, then you’ll start to notice a shift in how you feel about that particular subject in general. You’ll start to feel a little more positively about money, and a little more optimistically about relationships and a little more hopeful about your health, and that’s exactly what you want. It will start small, but if you keep it up, you’ll start to feel better and better, and soon enough, you’ll have a positive outlook on your objects of desire, at which point you’re well on your way to manifesting those desires.

20 Time Management Tips to Super Boost Your Productivity

20 Time Management Tips to Super Boost Your Productivity

Are you usually punctual or late? Do you finish things within the time you stipulate? Do you hand in your reports/work on time? Are you able to accomplish what you want to do before deadlines? Are you a good time manager?

If your answer is “no” to any of the questions above, that means you’re not managing your time as well as you want. Here are 20 time management tips to help you manage time better:

1. Create a Daily Plan

Plan your day before it unfolds. Do it in the morning or even better, the night before you sleep. The plan gives you a good overview of how the day will pan out. That way, you don’t get caught off guard. Your job for the day is to stick to the plan as best as possible.

2. Peg a Time Limit to Each Task

Be clear that you need to finish X task by 10am, Y task by 3pm, and Z item by 5:30pm. This prevents your work from dragging on and eating into time reserved for other activities.

3. Use a Calendar

Having a calendar is the most fundamental step to managing your daily activities. If you use outlook or lotus notes, calendar come as part of your mailing software.

I use it. It’s even better if you can sync your calendar to your mobile phone and other hardwares you use – that way, you can access your schedule no matter where you are. Here’re the 10 Best Calendar Apps to Stay on Track .

4. Use an Organizer

An organizer helps you to be on top of everything in your life. It’s your central tool to organize information, to-do lists, projects, and other miscellaneous items.

These Top 15 Time Management Apps and Tools can help you organize better, pick one that fits your needs.

5. Know Your Deadlines

When do you need to finish your tasks? Mark the deadlines out clearly in your calendar and organizer so you know when you need to finish them.

But make sure you don’t make these 10 Common Mistakes When Setting Deadlines.

6. Learn to Say “No”

Don’t take on more than you can handle. For the distractions that come in when you’re doing other things, give a firm no. Or defer it to a later period.

Leo Babauta, the founder of Zen Habits has some great insights on how to say no: The Gentle Art of Saying No

7. Target to Be Early

When you target to be on time, you’ll either be on time or late. Most of the times you’ll be late. However, if you target to be early, you’ll most likely be on time.

For appointments, strive to be early. For your deadlines, submit them earlier than required.

Learn from these tips about how to prepare yourself to be early, instead of just in time.

8. Time Box Your Activities

This means restricting your work to X amount of time. Why time boxing is good for you? Here’re 10 reasons why you should start time-boxing.

9. Have a Clock Visibly Placed Before You

Sometimes we are so engrossed in our work that we lose track of time. Having a huge clock in front of you will keep you aware of the time at the moment.

10. Set Reminders 15 Minutes Before

Most calendars have a reminder function. If you have an important meeting to attend, set that alarm 15 minutes before.

You can learn more about how reminders help you remember everything in this article: The Importance of Reminders (And How to Make a Reminder That Works)

11. Focus

Are you multi-tasking so much that you’re just not getting anything done? If so, focus on just one key task at one time. Multitasking is bad for you.

Close off all the applications you aren’t using. Close off the tabs in your browser that are taking away your attention. Focus solely on what you’re doing. You’ll be more efficient that way.

Lifehack’s CEO has written a definitive guide on how to focus, learn the tips: How to Focus and Maximize Your Productivity (the Definitive Guide)

12. Block out Distractions

What’s distracting you in your work? Instant messages? Phone ringing? Text messages popping in?

I hardly ever use chat nowadays. The only times when I log on is when I’m not intending to do any work. Otherwise it gets very distracting.

When I’m doing important work, I also switch off my phone. Calls during this time are recorded and I contact them afterward if it’s something important. This helps me concentrate better.

13. Track Your Time Spent

When you start to track your time, you’re more aware of how you spend your time. For example, you can set a simple countdown timer to make sure that you finish a task within a period of time, say 30 minutes or 1 hour. The time pressure can push you to stay focused and work more efficiently.

You can find more time tracking apps here and pick one that works for you.

14. Don’t Fuss About Unimportant Details

You’re never get everything done in exactly the way you want. Trying to do so is being ineffective.

Trying to be perfect does you more harm than good, learn here about how perfectionism kills your productivity and how to ditch the perfectionism mindset.

15. Prioritize

Since you can’t do everything, learn to prioritize the important and let go of the rest.

Apply the 80/20 principle which is a key principle in prioritization. You can also take up this technique to prioritize everything on your plate: How to Prioritize Right in 10 Minutes and Work 10X Faster

16. Delegate

If there are things that can be better done by others or things that are not so important, consider delegating. This takes a load off and you can focus on the important tasks.

When you delegate some of your work, you free up your time and achieve more. Learn about how to effectively delegate works in this guide: How to Delegate Work (the Definitive Guide for Successful Leaders)

17. Batch Similar Tasks Together

For related work, batch them together.

For example, my work can be categorized into these core groups:

  1. writing (articles, my upcoming book)
  2. coaching
  3. workshop development
  4. business development
  5. administrative

I batch all the related tasks together so there’s synergy. If I need to make calls, I allocate a time slot to make all my calls. It really streamlines the process.

18. Eliminate Your Time Wasters

What takes your time away your work? Facebook? Twitter? Email checking? Stop checking them so often.

One thing you can do is make it hard to check them – remove them from your browser quick links / bookmarks and stuff them in a hard to access bookmarks folder. Replace your browser bookmarks with important work-related sites.

While you’ll still checking FB/Twitter no doubt, you’ll find it’s a lower frequency than before.

19. Cut off When You Need To

The number one reason why things overrun is because you don’t cut off when you have to.

Don’t be afraid to intercept in meetings or draw a line to cut-off. Otherwise, there’s never going to be an end and you’ll just eat into the time for later.

20. Leave Buffer Time In-Between

Don’t pack everything closely together. Leave a 5-10 minute buffer time in between each tasks. This helps you wrap up the previous task and start off on the next one.
