Tune Out

We all have goals. Regardless of where you are in life, whether you’re just starting out or are deep into the throes of midlife, there are likely extraordinary things you’d like to accomplish. There might even be things you need to achieve with such urgency you’re willing to fight to get to where you need to be.

This is why it’s so frustrating when you stall out in meeting those goals. Roadblocks can leave you reeling and unsure whether to even continue. Distractions run rampant over your dreams, stripping you of both energy and impetus.

Being able to tune out those distractions and still propel yourself to your chosen goal is valuable beyond compare. Being able to do so regardless of the diversion, be it social, work-related, or personal can leave you empowered in ways you’ve never imagined.

So, hold on. You’re about to learn one of the most valuable lessons of your entire life: How to tune out distraction and realize your most profound dreams.


We’ll begin by digging into the problems caused by distraction and take a hard look at just how distraction holds us back. From there, you’re going to discover a list of the more common distractions people deal with, followed by some ideas on how to keep them from sucking up your time and energy. It’s going to be an exciting journey. Let’s begin!


The Things You Say

Hey, are you listening?

We don’t always pay attention to the conversations around us. When we get bored or think we’ve heard it all before we tend to tune out, catching only one word in a dozen. We fake out the person we’re with, nodding and catching the gist. Sometimes we even get away with it.

While this might be okay when the conversation isn’t important, there comes a time when you know you ought to be listening. If you’re talking to someone who matters to you, whose opinion counts, you probably want to listen up…especially when the one doing the talking is you.

We don’t always listen to our own self-talk. We tend to tune ourselves out, figuring it’s all the “same old same old.” After a while, we might not be hearing it anymore. This becomes a real problem when the self-talk turns negative.

Negative self-talk is what holds us back. It keeps us from accomplishing the things we could and can affect our health if it goes on long enough. On the other hand, positive self-talk is what gets us where we want to go. It boosts us when we need a jolt to set us into motion. It inspires and enables us to get to where we want to go.

In this book, you’re going to find a discussion of both positive and negative self-talk. You’re going to discover just why it is we get so negative and how to flip the script, to change self-talk over to the positive. Once you’re done, you’re never going to ignore what you’ve been trying to tell yourself ever again, nor will you allow yourself to fall into the trap of negative self-talk when you’ve got the powerful positivity of an inner dialogue designed to inspire in your arsenal.

So, isn’t it time you listened up? The journey toward positive self-talk begins here. 


Practice Kindness

How do we define kindness?

According to the dictionary, the quality of being kind involves a “sympathetic and a helpful nature.” The very act of kindness means we exhibit sympathy and couple it with actions that provide assistance, to the betterment of the quality of life to someone else.

It sounds simple. Why then is it so hard? Why is it especially difficult when the one we’re trying to show kindness to is ourselves?

The aspect of kindness is twofold:

- There isn’t a person in the entire world who isn’t capable of kindness

- Kindness has a way of turning around and reflecting back on the giver

With these facts in mind, it’s a wonder more people aren’t kind. After all, if Kindness truly matters, shouldn’t we all be more compassionate to others…and to ourselves automatically?

In this book, we’re going to look at the nature of kindness. We’ll examine how kindness helps us and others in our daily life. Then, as you start to feel the rekindling of kindness within your heart, you’ll discover lots of tips on how to add more kindness into your day.

Alone Time


How do you feel about being alone?

We don’t stop to think about being alone until we are. Only then do we start to notice the strangeness of the quiet as you realize you’re the only one in the room. Yet 28% of people live alone in today’s world, and it’s not uncommon for anyone to experience at least a few moments out of any given day where they are completely and utterly alone

What’s funny is how we dread this feeling so much. When we find out we are going to be alone for the weekend or are expected to do something alone, our first thoughts tend to go to who we can invite just to break up the silence. At the same time, we’re utterly ignoring the opportunity and yes, even the absolute joy which can be found in alone time.

When you’re alone, you gain the ability to focus. You get more done. And if you’re at all introspective, you tend to learn more about yourself. Alone time can be enlightening and even desired. Hopefully, this eBook will help you to find the power of solitude as you discover the joys of time within yourself.

How are we going to do this?

We begin with a definition of terms. First, you’ll find out the difference between being alone and loneliness. From there, you’re going to discover the power of alone time, and how to harness it. Lastly, you’ll find lots of ideas to get you started in exploring your time alone.

So, sit back, and prepare to be dazzled by the star of your alone time: YOU! After all, with the guidance found here, you will move from wondering how to deal with being alone to seeking solitude.

Let’s get started!


Your Circle

How do you get ahead?

What if you found out the answer to this question lies not so much in who you know, but in what kind of people you know and how much time you're dedicating to these relationships?

Entrepreneur and motivational speaker Jim Rohn famously said, "You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with."

Think about this for a moment. If these words are true, what does this make you?

This book is about teaching inspired individuals the value of surrounding themselves with the right people. By "right" we're not talking about those with high balances in their bank accounts or even those exhibiting the outward trappings of success. We're talking about the support system you surround yourself with. We're asking who is in your circle.

So, get ready to explore the idea of having a support system. As you read, you're going to discover why this is so important. Better yet, you're going to discover who should make the cut and be included in the support system. More importantly, you'll be asked to look hard at the relationships you have and decide who gets the cut.

These aren't always easy questions to answer. This book is going to require hard work and a certain level of commitment if you truly want to maintain a successful support system. It's, for this reason, the last chapter of this book is so very important. There you will discover how to maintain positive relationships, enabling your new support system to last for many years to come.


Perk Up

Most of us, at one time or another, have been so worried or anxious that we want to throw up. Maybe you've even gone past that point to where stress has made you physically sick. Perhaps you've heard that story about how actors, as they take the stage, will frequently become ill before going on. You may have felt that queasiness yourself when giving that pitch or proposal.

This sensation is because your body reacts to your mood. When you're happy, your body feels lighter, and pain diminishes. Sadness, on the other hand, causes you to slump. And worry can cause you to slouch or even break out into a cold sweat.

Often, we’re not even aware of our current mood. Have you ever had a bad day at work and when you get home, some tiny irritation causes you to take out your bad day on the person in front of you? You might not have even realized that you were under that much stress or had grown angry.

So, it follows that boosting your mood starts with an awareness of yourself. Think about it this way: the body and mind are interconnected. By noticing what’s going on with certain parts of your body, you’ll have a clearer picture of where your mood is right now.

Boosting your mood is not only crucial for your mental health, but for your physical health as well. Statistics show you'll have a good chance of living longer and healthier with a good attitude than you will with a bad one.

Let’s take a closer look at the link between mood and health.

Outside the Lines

Who are you?

Sometimes it doesn’t seem very easy to answer this question, does it? It kind of depends on who you’re around. When you’re with strangers or co-workers, it’s not uncommon to wear a mask or adopt a persona. You become part of the crowd simply because that is the easiest way to get along.

Around someone you know well, this might be a very different story. The mask drops, the persona fades. You become more real, more authentic. You’re quirky and a little odd, but a lot of fun. You’re you.


Even around people you know, it can be hard to let go. You might worry about what other people would think if they saw the real you. Or you might not even be sure yourself who you are anymore; it’s been so long since you’ve let go enough to find out.

If this sounds familiar, then it’s time for a journey into the world of you.

A reality where it’s OK to be yourself, even if this means going against the grain every once in a while. Imagine being able to stay true to your values, preferences, and quirks and still thrive.

We’ll start you out with some reasons why it pays to be yourself. From there, you’re going to find out all of the ways the rest of society tries to hold you back. For example, you might stick to the status quo, rather than strive to escape conformity for the world of individuality.

You’ll also find some ways to answer those naysayers.

In the end, learning to live outside the lines is all about you and who you are inside. If you want success, if you want true happiness, you’re never going to find it by holding yourself back.

Let’s get started, beginning with why it’s always best to be you.
