Motivational Reading Modules

These Motivational Reading Audio Modules can Unlock The Secrets To Achieving Success With Audio.

Do you have this sinking feeling that no matter what you do or how hard you try, you will always wind up falling short when trying to achieve changing things in your life, your positive mindset and achieving success?

It’s crazy…

No matter how hard you try, you are always missing the mark. Even after trying all the tips you have learned along the way, it just doesn’t turn out well…

When I started looking into motivational tools, I wasn’t having much success either… I thought that by simply saying a few positive words, closing my eyes and thinking I was great, there is no way I can go wrong…

But I always fall flat on my face!

Little did I realize that…

“Not Only Do Most People Fail Miserably In Changing Their Life And Positive Outlook, They Have No Idea About Using Motivational Tools…”

Let’s be truthfully realistic here…

The majority of the world do not know about using motivational stories. This is a sad fact and you may be one of them. Please don’t get worked up when I say this because this is just a realistic look at it.

The reason why I say this is because most people think they are doing great in life and achieving success and and a positive mindset – unfortunately they subconsciously don’t have the correct tools!

So what does this have to do with getting results and accomplishing success in your life and developing a positive mindset?

Everything, in fact!

Only when you truly know about using motivational stories correctly and have the correct tools, will you have really strong, unstoppable power when it comes to accomplishing change.

That’s the secret to success!

But this still doesn’t solve the whole problem of change yet…

Make no mistake about it…

“You Need To Know About How Motivational Tools Affect You, But Without The Right Tools (Audio and Stories) You Won’t Get Very Far…”

Why is it that people still fail in spite of wanting something?

Yes you can say that they don’t want something bad enough – but that is not truly the case.

Other times, people lose faith because it seems as if what they’re doing isn’t working.

Perhaps they feel that hunting down audio and stories is inconvenient and haven’t discovered how to use a program correctly.

Perhaps you’ve felt that:

– You tell yourself you can make a change in the way your mind and positive outlook works, but halfway thru you’re irritated and you get tired of searching for audio and stories…

– Other times, you see no results

– You want to be able to alter your outlook but you lack the tools

– Discouragement sets in…

– You don’t have the faith anymore…

At the end of the day, you realize that not only is it important to learn about motivational tools and use audio aids, but you don’t have the right tools to keep you going. You can only try to do it alone so much before you get exhausted.

Discouraging, isn’t it?

But here’s the good news…

Happiness In Difficult Times

A very common obstacle to real happiness is the mindset that happiness can only truly be attained when one has reached a stage of life that is devoid of problems. If you see life in this perspective, it will be absolutely impossible to gain happiness in this lifetime. Challenges and problems will never cease to come until the day you die. It is but part of every human existence. It is futile to run away from problems because they will only get bigger if you avoid them.

happiness-in-difficult-timesChallenges can give great discomfort and can set you back by a few steps in any of your goals. But no one in this world has ever gone through life without getting tangled up with problems. Nobody can ever deny their existence and you can only do so much to prevent their occurrence.

There is really no point in living a life running away from problems. You will encounter all sorts in your lifetime – finance, work, death, relationships, health, etc. But whatever problem you have in your hands, you need to tweak your perception of your problems.

Any challenge can be seen as an obstacle that will prevent you from moving forward or you can think of it as a ledge or stepping stone to push you to the top. Perception matters a lot in how you face problems and handle compromising situations in life. If you think that a problem is a mere obstacle, it can stunt a person’s development and growth.

If a challenged is perceived as an opportunity to learn, then it can facilitate and bolster growth. For example, Sally’s savings has depleted because of unexpected health costs because of her husband’s mild stroke attack. Her husband was able to recover with religious therapy sessions but it was her bank account that took the fall.

Since her husband had to quit work, she was the sole breadwinner of their family of 4. Yet, she did not see her misfortune as a reason to sulk and wallow in depression. She had finances to fix and a family to feed. She moved her entire family to a smaller apartment and sold their house. She rented an apartment near her office and moved her school-age kids to a school nearby to save on transportation costs.

The entire family cut down on their weekend getaways. Sally thought of selling their car but she thought of putting it up for occasional rental services for short-term tourists instead. She tapped into her all her contacts and relied on referrals to ensure that her clients were trustworthy. She priced her rentals at a slightly lower rate than most rental services but her profits were enough to pay off some of her bills.

When she was finally able to pay off her medical bill debts, she started investing in a low-scale franchise to keep the cash flow constant. Sally refused to believe that her husband’s sickness would ruin her finances and her family’s stability. On the contrary, she was able to pull her family out of that financial rut. Moreover, it taught her that she should not just rely on her job for financial security. She should also make investments.

Challenges and problems are often associated with change. It is difficult to deal with change, especially when you have grown comfortable with something or someone. There are some changes that are difficult to deal with, such as changes concerning relationships and career.

Jake was happy with his job as a sales executive in a medium-scale company. He was earning a decent sum of money and his supervisor was very considerate and nice. He has also formed friendships with several officemates of his.

However, things took a turn when his girlfriend of five years got pregnant. He was happy with his income but he needed a higher paying job in order

to support their child. Coincidentally, another company contacted him and offered him a higher position with higher pay. Jake knew that it was good for his family and the growth of his career, although he was afraid to transfer to a new company because it was a little farther from his apartment. Plus, he did not want to have to adjust to a new set of co‑workers.

However, his co-workers helped him realize that he needed to embrace this change in order for him to provide a better life for his family. The challenge of adjusting to a new company would also be worth the effort because it would improve his career standing.

A challenge can be conquered easily if the changes that come with it are readily welcomed. Challenges will introduce you to changes that can be very daunting. However, adapting to the changes will enable you to overcome challenges. These changes will make you a better person and teach you more lessons that will bring you closer to happiness.

The problem with running away from challenges is that you will never know how it is supposed to benefit you. It takes a critical mind to see that challenges are more than just a big pain in the ass. You have to understand what the challenge is trying to teach you and what you can get out of it. If you believe that the challenge will make your life better, only then can a challenge bring you true happiness.

Brandon and Leslie have already been together for five years. They were already thinking about tying the knot so they started talking about their options. The couple talked about their future home, the number of kids they were planning to have, and how they would allocate their budget for the house. Leslie’s job required her to be based in a foreign country every six months.

Brandon, however, already had his own business that gave him enough control of his time. Brandon wanted to have children right after marriage but Leslie wanted to stay in her company for a few more years to build her network and gain more experience.

Brandon already wanted to start a family. His mind was telling him to end their relationship, since Leslie clearly did not want the same thing that he wanted that moment.

However, he could not see himself being with anyone other than Leslie. Both of them thought their options through and decided to postpone the wedding for another two years. This would give Leslie enough time to travel and gain more work experience so that she can get a higher position that would not require her to travel as much.

Although Brandon was already bent on having children, he opted to look at other options and use the waiting time to expand his business and secure his future with Leslie and their family.

He was able to upgrade his business just in time for their wedding. In addition to that, they were able to buy a 4-bedroom house with ample space for their future children’s playground. Had they not saved up for two more years, they would not have been able to buy the house. Most of all, they were able to prove to each other their love and loyalty because of their willingness to wait for the right time.

Handling a challenge properly requires an open and critical mind. Looking at the gifts that the challenges have to offer will bring you closer to happiness.

Any challenge that comes your way is yours. If there is anything that blocks your way, it is your right to take away whatever barricade is causing you trouble. Hiro’s mother died in an unfortunate car crash. Being new to the country, he was left with no one else but his father and younger brother. Back when his mother was alive, she and her father both had separate income. Their combined income was enough to send him and his younger brother to school.

However, with his mother gone, his father could only afford to send one child to school. Hiro let his brother take the opportunity but he refused to put education at the bottom of his list. Hiro applied for a working student scholarship. He worked in school as a research assistant. During his spare time, he would edit videos so that he could have money to spare for miscellaneous expenses.

It was not Hiro’s fault that his mother died. However, he had to do something about his studies because no one else would. He badly wanted to study so he accepted the challenged and acknowledged the fact that he was an empowered individual with a responsibility to nurture his own self-growth. Be responsible for your own challenges.

If you encounter an obstacle while fulfilling a goal, remember why you are aiming for the goal in the first place. Always remind yourself why you took on the goal in the first place. This is what trainers always tell their athletes when they face a slump during their training.

At the beginning of the training, the athletes are all psyched up to wake up early in the morning for a 4-hour training session. They eventually get tired of the routine and the rigors of athletic training. When this happens, they are always reminded of the competition or tournament they are training for to get them back on track.

No one is vulnerable to challenges and obstacles in this earthly life. They make life very dynamic and if perceived in the right way, give the person a more meaningful existence. Most of all, conquered challenges will bring the person to real happiness. The person will linger in happiness knowing that he or she has enough capacity to grow, learn, and conquer all the challenges and trials.

The Cause of Unhappiness

Happiness can be elusive for most people. It is rare to find a person that will claim to have attained real happiness. Maybe at some point, they may have declared that they have already attained real happiness but they retract their declaration when disheartening obstacles come along.

Happiness is not determined by what happens to a person. Happiness is a product of how a person reacts to the events that happen in life. Happiness is attained when a person steers life towards its direction. There is no single map for happiness that everyone should follow. It is a path discovered through individual experience.

Even though each one has a different path cut out for happiness, there are a few common causes that cause unhappiness. People’s individual reasons for unhappiness are personal but they share general themes more often than not.

Negativism

Negativism is pervasive in many unhappy people. Both happy and unhappy individuals have had to weather many storms in life but it is their mindset that sets them apart. Happiness is drawn from positivity in the faces of adversity. It is positivity that keeps them going and gets them to a sound solution. Negative people think of the worst and as a result, the worst usually happens. Even though the proper mindset will not get a person the

 

exact desired result, it motivates the person to get past challenges and obstacles. Negative thoughts are created out of habit but they eventually become a long-term mindset if the person does not keep tabs of it. When a person gets used to thinking negatively, it becomes hard to get rid of such thoughts. Unhappiness is hard to attain because of destructive, negative thoughts that are difficult to eliminate because they have become ingrained already.

Unhappiness is also caused by the negativity expressed towards other people. It is hard to get along with other people when the worst is assumed of them. It is normal for a person to be defensive and realistic when dealing with people but when it gets out of hand, the negativity becomes hurtful and offensive. It pays to give people the benefit of the doubt. There are a handful of unhappy people that easily judge and mistreat others. This negativity, although expressed towards other people, can rub on oneself. It is very important to be aware of how negativity creeps into one’s system because it becomes the root of all other terrible things that lead to unhappiness.

Greediness

Greediness brings people several steps closer to unhappiness. It should not be confused with ambitiousness. A healthy amount of ambitiousness should be good for a person because it motivates a person to improve and progress.

Greed, on the other hand, is an extreme thirst for things in life to the point of obtaining it in unjust and unethical ways. Greed is a primary cause of suffering and unhappiness in many people. People become greedy because of the blinding charm of possessions and power.

Greed motivates them to seek more things that they need just so the people around them will not have as much they have. These things bring one euphoric pleasure but not long-term happiness. Insatiable greed causes a person to confuse pleasure with happiness.

People pursue pleasure hoping to find permanent happiness only to go on an empty search with no end. This constant search for pleasure generates more greed, until such time that the unhappiness and discontent of a person becomes so difficult to contain already. Greedy

 

people refuse to accept the fact that they cannot have everything that they want in life in one pursued.

Envy and jealousy

Greed is related to envy and jealousy. Envy and jealousy are the green monsters that are catalysts to greed. When a person is envious of another person’s achievements and belongings, he or she wants to get ahead of that person. Envy will consume the person so much that it can even develop hatred for the object of envy. Soon, the person will derive pleasure in seeing a person suffer.

Envious and jealous people also feel terrible when others gain in life. That’s why they have the urge to pull people down so that they can feel better about themselves. Envy and jealousy are undeniably negatives states. For many people, they can only go away when a person is happy. However, envy and jealousy are hindrances to happiness themselves.

Envy and jealousy occur when one starts comparing himself and what he has with others. A healthy competition never really hurt anyone. However, getting overzealous with competition may spark envy. Envy and jealousy have already brought down nations, sparked wars, hurt friendships, and destroyed relationships. Envy, without a doubt, can cause a great deal of misery and unhappiness in any community.

Pride

Pride also causes a lot of problems with happiness. The danger of pride stems from the fact that it hinders people in doing the right thing, even if they are completely aware that they are doing the wrong thing. They refuse to budge and change what they have to change simply because they do not want to be proven wrong. People with a false sense of pride cannot be proven wrong, causing them to justify their wrong actions.

Pride is also a characteristic of highly insecure people. Proud people are unhappy people because they cannot handle criticism well. They need a constant stream of praises to keep their self-esteem in check. Pride is a blindfold that covers one’s vision from reality. It provides temporary relief (particularly if someone feeds that pride) but it only create a false sense of happiness. In

the long run, proud people cannot be happy because they are not at peace with themselves. It is also difficult for proud people to attain happiness under any situation their pride makes them inflexible and unable to adapt to various things life throws at them.

Anger

It is natural for a person to feel angry when agitated or hurt. It is part of every being’s nature. It is but a defensive mechanism for every animal to protect themselves. A bitch will naturally get angry and fight any being that threatens to harm or take away her puppies.

However, lingering anger does not count as a protective defense mechanism because it hinders the person from attaining real happiness. Anger has to be managed well so that it does not escalate to something worse, like hatred. It is almost impossible to stop anger, since it is a natural response of any animal. However, changing the mindset will help control anger.

As mentioned earlier, happiness is a response to certain situations. Anger is a reaction to certain situations as well. By changing the mindset, you can minimize the anger that you feel. For instance, you get really annoyed whenever the colleague you closely work with is always late. It really gets to your nerves because his tardiness is already affecting your overall productivity. He has not changed even after you have already talked to him about this.

You can change your mindset instead and still retain your productivity. While waiting for him, you can accomplish other tasks that do not require his efforts. When he arrives, you have fewer tasks to finish. That way, you can channel your anger to something else. Anger can be sparked by petty things but these little things can build up and cloud your perspective. Awareness to situations that cause anger is a key to controlling the raging emotion.

Guilt

When you feel like you have done something wrong, chances are you will be bothered by it unless you do something to make it right. The same feeling goes for someone that thinks that he or she should have done something more than what has been done. It is difficult to attain happiness with guilt

 

being an impediment. Guilt can really be an obstacle in the journey to happiness. It holds down a person, much like quicksand. Guilt can cause internal turmoil that will disrupt peace of mind. No one can be truly happy without being at peace with oneself.

The best way to deal with guilt is to address the specific cause. If you have sinned against anyone, muster the courage to apologize to that person. Face the consequences of any of your wrongdoings. Stop running away from problems because this will only heighten any guilt that you feel. The solution to guilt is really simple – face the real reason. It is gathering enough courage that is difficult but once you get past this, you will feel a lot better.

Stress

Finally, stress can become a real barrier in achieving happiness. Activities, hobbies, relationships, and work keep a human being’s life meaningful and productive. But sometimes, people do not know when to take it easy. Having too many activities and priorities will make you forget the purpose of them all. You will fail to enjoy the fruits of your labor, letting you lead a directionless life.

The sad thing about it is that you waste energy on something with no purpose. Stress also brings down one’s resistance and energy, increasing the vulnerability to negative emotions (i.e. anger). That is why it pays to organize one’s life and set priorities straight.

In this day and age, multi-tasking is essential. Many people will make your believe that you will get more done if you do more things at the same time. But there are also dangers in multi-tasking. It is one of the top reasons that stress people out.

Moreover, it prevents the person from relishing the essence of what he or she is doing. People focus too much on finishing as many things as possible that they forget to do things properly. This leads to inefficiency and stress. People should learn to separate busyness from stress. Happy people need to be busy with something but if they over do it, they will burn themselves out with stress.

Negativity, greed, pride, envy, anger, guilt, and stress are the most common general reasons that lead to unhappiness. People have individual and personal reasons that are stopping them from achieving happiness but more often than not, they can be traced to the reasons listed above.
