Musical Stairs Fun Theory

Musical Stairs Fun Theory

Something to FEEL Good About Now!

Steve Jobs — “People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to … Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.”

Have you ever thought of creating something AMAZING but stopped short because you felt it was just too far out? Take a look at these Musical Stairs For Fun!

When I first saw this video it made me smile, then it prompted me to share it with friends and family members. The reason, musical stairs for fun demonstrates the reality that no idea, no matter how imaginative or unconventional is too outrageous. Especially if it makes people happy!

Imagine if visionaries such as the Wright brothers, Albert Einstein or Thomas Edison gave up on their dreams. Our world would be quite a different place.
What if Steve Jobs had all the ideas for Apple and said, “forget it those can’t be done, no one has ever done it that way… I’m not the one to create it!” Consider Virgin Airlines, Starbucks, and McDonalds, all mega brands that began with one person’s unique vision. Next time you grab a Coke remember that it was stirred into creation in a large kettle by a country doctor in his kitchen!

Each of these success stories began with the spark of imagination. None of them would have become real without the belief in that initial impulse and the drive and determination to follow it through to reality.

If you are like me you may have lots of imaginative ideas in your mind. I had to do a lot of work on myself to believe that each of them is valid. My biggest challenge has always been self-doubt. Today it’s which ideas I will focus on and which ones will I let fall by the way side. I am choosing to create OurBrightSpot, because it’s my dream and most of all because I trust it will make lots of people happy!

So what’s your most outlandish dream? Do you believe it’s possible? My theory is that only you can create it otherwise it wouldn’t be in your mind it would be in someone else’s. Next time you doubt yourself remember this post and this video. If you have the dream, you can make your vision a reality. Believe it and work to make it so. When and if you begin to doubt yourself, take another look at this video.

People love to have fun and feel happy, add music and even climbing a staircase becomes a joyful experience. Check out this amazing experiment. Wouldn’t it be fantastic to have these everywhere…all around the globe!

Coca-Cola Happiness Machine

Coca-Cola Happiness Machine

Something to FEEL Good About Now!

Are you someone who loves the status quo, or do you welcome unexpected surprises? Check out this Coca-Cola Happiness machine that totally surprizes these students!

I find most of my happiest moments have occurred with very little or no planning. Today the happiness machine lives in me, and I choose to activate mine by generating spontaneity for myself and others. Once you see the joy you can create in the moment you’ll want to generate more of it for yourself and everyone around you.

The truth is that I used to hate change because I was afraid of the unknown. I gave that up once I realized I had very little control over anything except myself and my attitude toward just about everything. Now I actually welcome surprises! I love living in the present moment and with that always comes lots of magically unexpected events and gift.

Here’s what I mean. I suffered from analysis paralysis… Should I do this, what if I don’t do that? In other words over thinking and self-doubt were joy killers for me. Then I learned to trust my instincts more and to go with my heart and my gut rather than my head. Yes, I still think things through, but I no longer dwell in uncertainty. I jump in and play! Once I make a decision I don’t second guess myself I make the best of it. And then if need be I make the better of it along the way, until everything turns out well in the long run.

If uncertainty makes you feel insecure and anxious, why not try looking at change from a different perspective. Greet the unknown with excitement and let spontaneity, growth and expansion allow you to feel totally alive. I think you’ll find a lot more to enjoy. Practice until you become a happiness producing machine!

What’s something in your life right now that’s weighing you down? Try this. Write it down on a piece of paper, read it a couple of times and then destroy it. That’s right! Rip up that paper, burn it or flush it. It no longer exists now for you. Instead, you have the opportunity to create something completely new.
Take that same situation and generate a happy perspective and a bright outcome. That’s what it means to become your own self-generating happiness machine.
Keep this up everyday and I promise you’ll get really good at it. Enjoy!

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Today’s BrightSpot!”

“Science has never drummed up quite as effective a tranquilizing agent as a sunny spring day.”~W. Earl Hall

Ever find yourself worrying about something you have absolutely no control over? Worry not only drains your energy it creates anxiety, depression and insomnia. So don’t worry, be happy! One instant cure for too much unproductive thinking is a walk outside on a warm spring day!

Whether its five minutes on a lunch break or a full afternoon, there’s nothing like a sunny day to put everything into clearer perspective. Life can only be enjoyed in the present, why waste it by looking back with regret or anticipating the worst. Whatever concerns you today probably won’t matter much tomorrow and most likely will never come to pass anyway. Try what I’m becoming a lot better at, step outside and let anything that’s bringing you down evaporate into the sunshine.

I admit it; I’m a worrier by nature. But I’m learning to live a happier and less stressed life by asking myself these questions and you can too.”Is this something I have any power over? If so, what actions can I take to make the situation better?” If not, “What can I do right now to make myself feel better, lighter and more joyful?”

This morning began in a less than pleasant way, until I peeked outside to see one of those perfect weather days in sunny San Jose, CA. I left my wrist watch behind and grabbed the opportunity for a long brisk walk into the nearby town. Shops where buzzing and there were a lot of smiling faces on the people I passed. Resting on a wooden bench I felt the warmth on my skin. Fifteen minutes of vitamin D the natural way is surely a good thing. The perfumed scents and vitality of spring surrounded me; rose bushes beginning to bloom, a few full vibrant yellow blossoms alongside tight pink buds just about to open. A neighbor watched his puppy scamper about, exuberantly sniffing every object for the first time. The only thought in my head now was, “How wonderful to be alive!”

Whatever you’re stressing over right now, let it go. You’ll sleep better if you worry less, relax more and become more spontaneous throughout your day. A warm spring day can help us get there faster until we learn that it’s up to us to create that sunshine everyday within ourselves.
