Monday Motivation – #resiliencefromtheheart


Hello my loves!
“Resilience from the Heart – The Power to Thrive in Life’s Extremes” by Gregg Braden is deeply meaningful book.
I started to read this book last week. This book inspired me to share with you guys some quotes…
Because it’s Monday!


“Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”
– Albert Einstein


“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world…”

– Albert Einstein


“If the 20th century has been the Century of the Brain . . .
then the 21st century should be the Century of the Heart.”
— Gary E. R. Schwartz, Ph.D., and Linda G. S. Russek, Ph.D.



“We live in a world where everything is connected.
We can not longer think in terms of us and them when it comes to the consequences of the way we live.
Today it’s all about WE.”
– Gregg Braden




“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
– Albert Einstein

We heard this quote so many times and we see that the most part of people don’t like a change or just reject the idea of trying something new. The word “change” means that we need to leave our comfort zone (and it’s so comfortable in our comfort zone)… We need also take action (now or later)…
How we can do the same things over and over again and expecting different results? The most fascinating example is our system of education. I mean, the traditional path of education in school… [yeah…]
“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” [yeah…]

What we can understand as a change?
As an example, “change” can mean to try new coffee, to avoid gluten in food (this is actually something I’ve started to work on :-)), to start learning a new language etc.


We don’t like to get stuck and the only way to avoid it is to change something.
The most challenging part of “change” are people in our communities who say “NO” to any other ways of thinking. As an example was the communism in the country where I was born (Poland). I wasn’t born in a free country. I wasn’t lucky enough. Don’t get me wrong… I’m no longer feeling sorry for myself.
In communism was forbidden to think different. People weren’t able to leave the country, to travel … because of closed boundaries… and they missed a lot of opportunities in life.
It was taught through the word “ubogi” that…poor people are close to the God (in psychology: “poor mentality”). Psychology topics were skipped and a lot of people still think that psychology is bullshit.
Now it’s a long time after the communism was collapsed but still the old ways/destructive patterns of thinking are in minds of people. People still think that they don’t deserve a lot of things…e.g. go to the restaurant or to travel the world (in psychology:”victim mentality”) and people who have money are consider to be bad (in psychology:”poor mentality”).
Such a thing like to travel seems to be still impossible. People still believe, that they “CAN’T” (a lot of things) …
This is why I’m convinced that our limitations are in our minds/ in our mentality/ in our lifestyles.
What do you think about this topic?



Wish you a nice new week my loves!
Keep thinking positive guys!
Until next time,

    Its true quite often we oppose change because we are afraid of difference when instead we should embrace it.

    So interesting to hear your experience of Communism. I totally agree, so many limitations are in our minds and yet the fact they ultimately don’t exist, doesn’t make them easier to overcome. That fascinates me more than anything!

    That book sounds very interesting. This is really helpful motivation for me. I’m going to have a super busy few weeks.

    I love change! In fact as a child I would change my room around all the time, then as a young adult I didn’t live in the same house for more than a year at a time and often a lot less than that. In fact I moved 24 times in 11 years. I have now embraced my gypsy ways and live on a boat travelling full time. I always use change as a positive…. a clean out physically or mentally! I know not all change is for the better however we have to make the best with what we have.

    Change is important, it gets rid of the bad things to make way for the better things in life. We all have to embrace it especially during times like these!

    We need to learn to embrace change or accept it. It’s one of the most constant things in the world and it definitely is needed to improve our way of life. I’m sure a lot of people are hesitant though because it’s never easy to change the ways that we’re used to.

    This is a great motivation. I love your photos, you look so stunning!

    I know getting out of our box is difficult, because, as you say, it’s too comfortable inside. I am trying to get out of my comfort zone every time I travel because there are so many things to experience. I wish I was more motivated to do this when I am at home too.

    There will always be changes, nothing stays as it is for ever. We don’t necessarily like all changes but we can learn from them anyway. Sometimes change is a must and good for us. Sometimes it’s something that we just have to accept. I believe that without changes there won’t be any improvement.

    I think everything is in our mind. We can do what ever we want if only we stop to fear. P.S. I love these quotes. They are just so great, it really makes you think more about life
