Gems for living a life of wellness. Lessons I have learned, or am learning, during this crazy journey through life.

Where does this come from?  It’s from a 17th Century samurai warrior.  This was his four point key to successful living–and swordsmanship.

No Fear

There should be nothing in this life that you are afraid of.  It there is, you might need to do some work on overcoming that fear.  Whatever your fear, face it head on and defeat it.

No Surprise

Life seems to be full of them, doesn’t it?  You’re going along just fine and suddenly something huge rears up ahead of you.  But if you look carefully, there were clues all along the way that is was going to happen.  Whatever your situation now, it is going to change.  No surprises there.  So why does life seem to surprise us then?  Because we are asleep half the time.  Wake up and nothing can sneak up on you.

No Hesitation

Weigh up the odds and then just get on with it.  If you hang back, the opportunity will have passed.  If you spend too long thinking, you’ll never make a move.  No hesitation means if there is a certain inevitability about a situation, then just throw yourself in head first and enjoy the ride.

No Doubt

Once you have made your mind up about something, don’t go over it again and again.  Stop thinking and enjoy–relax and let go.  Stop worrying.  Be confident.  Be committed.  Have no doubt it was the right thing to do and no doubt that you will succeed.  Get on with it and trust your judgment completely.
