8. Good Stress And Bad Stress:

All stress is not bad. Stress is a  crucial aspect of life that cannot be avoided. So long as you are a human being and actively engaged in daily life activities, you will experience some form of stress. In a way, your stress acts as an alarm or a warning signal, to alert you to make adjustments in different areas of your life. Bad stress are the end result of an accumulation of many ignored stress warnings. Bad stress will manifest in the form of psychosomatic illness: a sickness or symptoms without any known medical explanation or diagnosis. Be smart by listening to the signals from your stress by making necessary, positive  and healthy adjustments in your personal life.


9. How To Decode Your Disappointments:

Every body would prefer to live an easy and painless life experience. But the realities of life experience comes with severe painful and traumatic small episodes here and there in the form of failures, disappointments, emotional heart aches,  tragic and devastating losses, broken dreams, and life-long trauma permanently stored in the subconscious mind.


In spite of these unpleasant and painful life experiences, you should know, that every time you fail or get disappointed, there is a very important and beneficial lesson hidden in that experience, that will move you closer to your personal goals and dreams or accomplishments. But you must be able to decode your experience and extract these beneficial life-changing lessons hidden within the painful experience. If you need further guidance in decoding your painful experiences, write us at: positiveassignments@positivelifechangers.com


10. Accept What Is To Live A Fulfilling Life:

Your key to living a peaceful, happy, fulfilled, balanced, progressive and successful dynamic life, is to accept what is. In order to understand the concept and principle of "what is," and how powerful it works to protect your well being, you must first be aware of the following facts of life:


1. Life is complicated. 2. Life is a big mess. 3. Life events in many instances is horrible and makes no sense. 4. Life is a mystery which nobody can solve by themselves. 5. Many plans you make in life never works out as you expected. 6. You will experience devastating failures, pain, humiliation, and great disappointment moments before you achieve great success. 7. Life operates on orderly natural laws that never fails, if you follow the rules. 8. Life events appears to be in a constant state of violence and chaos.


This makes it appear, as though no one is in charge or in control to keep things in order. Don't try to figure out or understand why, because you will lose your mind and go insane. The only way you are going to successfully survive this madness and mystery called life, is by accepting "what is." Accept now as it is whether it is good or bad. Don't go back to dwell on the events that happened yesterday. Don't worry about what will happen tomorrow.


Now and today or this moment, is all you have to accept and be content with. Appreciate your now and today. Be happy with what you have now: that is "what is." If you can discipline yourself to do this, you will be the master of the peace, happiness, and progressive fulfillment in your life.  


11. WHY DIVORCE IS A PROBLEM AND NOT A SOLUTION:

"If I get a divorce from this man or woman who has made my life miserable, I will become free and live happily ever after." Is this wish, statement or sentiment true or false? Decades of relationships disasters proves that the above expectations is false. There are exceptions to the rule, and there are situations, where a divorce is the only solution, but in 95 percent of relationship meltdown, a divorce is the wrong solution.


Why is that so? People in relationships exhibit a very disturbing character trait: they seem to have short memories as to how much they were in-love when they first met, leading to their marriage, and the longer they live together and know each other, they treat each other as an expendable commodity. Which leads to the real root cause of the failure of majority of relationships. This is summed up into one question which goes like this: "what are you doing for me to justify my loyalty to you or my sacrificing myself, my time, my love, my money, for you, and providing you with sexual enjoyment?


Sex is a very important part of a marriage, but because of this selfish attitude, many mates have turned sex into a bargaining tool or chip for getting what they want. And if there mate doesn't comply with their demands, they will withdraw sex for months or even years as a form of punishment. When this happens, all parties usually run to a divorce court to solve this problem. These and many other relationship issues cannot be resolved by getting divorced.


Guess what you just did when you got divorced? You didn't resolve any of your bad and negative or unhealthy personal issues, which ruined your relationship and your marriage, but you took and easy way out, by running away through a divorce. And this is the disservice you are doing to your next wife, husband, boyfriend, girlfriend or romantic interest: you will be carrying with you, this unchecked baggage of this toxic behavior which you never corrected in your previous relationship, and you will dump it on them too. And you will run away again, by getting divorced and repeating this cycle of negative and toxic behavior. As you can see, if you really want to have a peaceful, happy, and fulfilling marital or romantic relationship, stop running, be brave by owning up to your own negative toxic behavior, work things out with your spouse or mate, by remembering how you felt about each other when you first met, then accept your designated role in the relationship, respect each other whether one spouse has money or not, whether one spouse has a job or not, and be interested in saving and protecting your relationship and your family unit. Learn to accept "what is," by dealing with and appreciating and working with what you have now.


If you can practice this time tested guaranteed principle, you will happily have no need for a toxic divorce and traumatic experience.

                                                  Life Changing Tips
1. No Magic Formula To Success:
There is no magic formula, there are no short cuts, no lazy ways, or easy path to success. But there is a guaranteed system to achieving success. Once you discover the system that produces a specific type of success, all you need to do, is to apply it. However, you cannot fall asleep by getting careless once you have achieved success. You must take specific actions which will maintain and keep your success in constant motion or on auto pilot. For you to maintain success you must: be organized, be passionate, be patient, be persistent, be disciplined, be passionate, be committed, be confident, be bold, be consistent, have a positive mindset, be financially literate, have a plan of action, be optimistic and hopeful, be an excellent money manager.


2. Identify Your Motivation And Maximize It:
You must be motivated be something either internally or externally to take actions which would lead you to achieve success. What this means, is that success doesn't happen in a vacuum. Something good or something very bad or painful must occur in your life to push you or drive you to achieve success. Motivation is what causes you to act or what made you happy or so angry to create a powerful drive in you to do something about a situation or a problem. Different people are motivated by different emotions and experiences. For example, fear, poverty, loneliness, illiteracy, illness, happiness, peace of mind, hope, and optimism are few examples of the hundreds of thousands of factors that can get you motivated, to set you on a path or journey that will lead you to success. They key for you, is to find that one factor that motivates you, and use it as your foundation to go all the way to the mountain top. Take a moment to review your life and you will find your own motivator. Find it and let it take you all the way to your final destination: the place called success. You can do it.


3. Persistence Is Your Backup When Your Motivation Is Low:
Persistence is your backup game-changer, when your motivation is low or when you completely lack the motivation to do anything. Motivation has its highs and lows. You will have periods when you feel highly motivated, a period when you feel like you can move mountains and fly like birds and accomplish anything you desire, but at other times you don't have the motivation to get out of your bed to face a new day's challenges. These are the moments when persistence comes to your rescue to save the day. Persistence is the continued effort toward a goal even though obstacles exist.


4. Get Out Of An Abusive Relationship Now Because It Destroys Success:
Abuse is not Love. Every abuser puts in a great effort into deceiving their victims that the emotional and physical abusive treatments they are getting is love. That is a lie. But the abuse victims have been so damaged mentally, physically, and emotionally to the point where they accept and believe these lies to be true. Abuse victims are living in a nightmare where they feel trapped by their victims and they can't get out. But there are ways to get out and regain your freedom, if you are currently living in and abusive relationship. Victims in abusive relationships, usually feel worthless, they constantly live in fear, they have a low self-esteem, they are also kept isolated by their abusers from contacts with family and friends. They characteristics of the abuser are: complete total control, domination, exercise of power, and humiliating demeaning treatments of the abuser. If you are a victim and you don't know how to get out of your abusive relationship, please contact us for helpful information on how to regain your life and your freedom. Send your e-mail to: abusevictimsguide@positivelifechangers.com. When you are living in an abusive relationship, all your opportunities for achieving success are destroyed. You can be free again. But you must have the courage to make the choice that you want to be free today.


5. The Power Of Appreciation:

When was the last time you said, "Thank You," or showed your appreciation to those kind-hearted individuals or those unselfish good people who went out of their way, to sacrifice their time or money or both to help you? It is very unfortunate that today, we live in a very impersonal and selfish world, where people don't take a moment to appreciate those who changed their lives in a positive way. It pays and it is very rewarding to appreciate people who have done good and wonderful things for you. The natural universal laws that is consistently in motion never fails because when you appreciate others, those whom you have helped will appreciate you too. Try it and find out for yourself.


6. A Positive Mindset Is A fertile Environment For Success:
A positive mindset is a prerequisite or requirement to taking actions which would lead to your success. You owe it to yourself to stay away from anyone operating in a negative mindset, if you want to achieve success. People with negative mindset will infect you with their toxic mindset which will destroy your motivation, creativity, and passion. When you operate with a positive mindset, you become exposed to positive ideas, positive plans, positive people, positive opportunities, positive helpers, positive outcomes, positive expectations, and positive results.


7. What To Do When You Fail.

You must remember the following important points: (A) Failure is not final, (B) You will fail many times before you succeed, and (C) Failure is your training ground to show you what works and what will not work on your journey to achieve success. What means, is that you must be prepared and willing to fail. You must embrace rather being afraid to fail. You must be humble and learn the tough hard lessons and experience that your failures will bring into your life and your overall psyche. And most importantly, failure is not your enemy but your ally that will guide you all the way to the mountain top of success. It's now time for you to go out and fail your way into success. Yes! You can do it. So, go and get it done.

Freedom From The Bondage Of

Rejection And Self-Hatred

Hello everyone, we would like to invite you to join us, by supporting us, to help our campaign to fulfill its intended mission and goals for the reasons expressed below.
Here, at Positive Life Changers, we are involved with providing self-improvement services which enables individuals to overcome their difficult life challenges and circumstances and to achieve their goals or goals in life. Through our outreach services to our guests from over 160 countries, we have discovered the great destructive impact and manifestations of the negative consequences in the lives of individuals who experienced rejections, earlier in their childhood development.
We have had the opportunity to listen to the pain and hurt from individuals who were told by the people they loved, respected, and looked up to as their role model and heroes, that they were ugly or that they were not good enough to do anything right. And worst of all some of these individuals were told that they will not amount to anything in life.
These painful, cruel and hurtful words had devastating dire consequences in their lives, as they moved on into adulthood. These individuals believed and internalized the cruel and hurtful word they were told yesterday. And as a consequence, they have developed a serious problem of self-hatred. They hate who they are. They want to become someone else besides themselves and they feel so inferior, with no self-esteem, with no self-confidence, no hope, and have become very pessimistic about life in general.
As a result of these personal trauma, emotional and psychological pain, these problems have evolved to become the problems of anyone else, who comes in contact with or enters into any relationship with these victims of rejection. We have discovered that these individuals are so emotionally and psychologically damaged, to the extent that they are not trusting and are afraid to be in relationships. As a defense mechanism, they will reject members of their families, they will reject their wives or husbands, and they even reject opportunities first, before they get rejected. These underlying problem is responsible for uncountable heartbreaking divorces today.
So many people have the problems described here, but they don't recognize it because they are in denial.  The most effective strategy for resolving any problem is to first be aware and acknowledge that you have a problem, then follow up with specific effective solutions. Our campaign will help individuals to be aware that they are victims of this rejection experience, and then provide the encouragement, inspiration, resources, and help needed to effectively overcome this devastating problem which has ruined the lives of so many, who never got the chance to receive a helping hand.
The reasons stated above are the reasons why we are asking for your support to help us kick off this campaign in a positive direction. We are very hopeful that you will help us and support us. Are you a victim of this problem? Do you know someone who is suffering under these burdens? Please help us, so that we can be a source of lasting positive help to a victim. Thank you very much for your consideration and action.
