Intelligent – Really!

We all consider ourselves relatively intelligent, relatively clever, smart, and we all have some common sense?  – Right?

Then,  if the above holds true for myself and yourself, why do we get stuck ? Why do we get hurt ?  Why do we do negative things, gossip, hold on to what is bad , hurtful, painful, eat the wrong food,  drink , etc etc…

Intelligence means the ability to understand right from wrong, what is good for us , what is bad for us.   Would you agree ?

We know everything, we do , we really do.  But, boy do we have a love affair with being hurt, being down ,  gossiping and doing things that are counter intelligent! – Right!

So let us be intelligent today – because we are intelligent – aren’t we!

Put lazyness , procrastination, carelessness aside and be smart and live smart. Let stop the negative automatic pilot habits and let us be intelligent from this day on-wards, forever until we ultimately say good bye!

Success is our birth right – so don’t self sabotage it.

    One of my overall goals that I set with my counselor is to cut down on my procrastination from 10+++ times per week to 5 times per week. This is the 2nd annual time I’ve set that goal. I just can’t seem to get around to it.

    1. Hey Dru, I am no counselor. I have written posts on procrastination and time management – just search on my blog. I have also written on change, and motivation. Unfortunately me being a new blogger and now working – i know my categories for my blog need serious work- but I just cant figure it out. The point being I have written loads in the blog that will help you.

      Anyway – I often joke about my phd in procrastination. Some goals have taken me 10 years to get the hang of them. I believe in baby step, i have noticed i get lazy or I get overwhelmed or both. I would say to you never give up, pat yourself on each and every baby step of success. We can all beat procrastination and we all have it. What ever it is you are procrastinating on : for example right now I have a stack of ironing to. I set a timer for 20 mins and put the music on, and I do the ironing. one baby step of success. Then i will set the timer for 30 mins, for more ironing, but I will go and do something else, like I have to hoover, and cut the grass. At the end of all these baby steps i would have achieved something and the procrastination ghost will be clear and the motivation will be there.

      You can do it dru. Baby step. with baby time limit. you will achieve. Believe in yourself and you will do it. Read my believe in yourself post. I think i have a post on motivation. Also be aware of your time wasters. for me you tube suck my time away.

      we can all achieve and win over our weaknesses – 20 mins at a time – watch your world change. Set a goal to do 3 things today for 20-30 mins each and just do it, and see how your feel. motivation will follow

      let us know how you do. I know you can do it… we all can win over our lazy way – we can. go for it.

      speak soon – regards Bella


    2. also dru never focus on the negative, focus on the positive, so you like you have a task to do, break it down in to 20 mins slices and just do it. action creates motivation. Then you automatically win. but if you say to cut it down from 10 to 5 – okay is is a goal, but the words cut is heavy. How about i will achieve half of this task today and the other half tomorrow. Well I am no a counselor … anyway read my other response… i dont know if i am helping here … sorry if i am confusing. regards bella


    1. Hey Vincent, Brilliant so glad i got you thinking. I was playing with irony a bit! Our thoughts impact our happiness, if we are clever/intelligent then we should have some sense to watch what we think – there is no value in thinking negative thoughts, it just a really bad negative habit. I believe we can create new habits, these habits might take longer than 66 day, may be a few years – but I think it worth the effort… well that my two cents.. Happy to have you back … missed your comments. happy i got you thinking with huh-!!! I take that as complement from someone as intelligent as you … speak soon

    1. Dear Roland, Yes a different type of intelligence, I thought I would take a twist on the word intelligence – and presence is quite accurate. Being present and being authentic to who we really are.. We forget what and who we are. Thanks for commenting and visiting. Regards Bella
