5 Amazing Miracles That Come From Goosebump Moments

I am sure all of you have felt that sensation that you get when you listen to a song that gives you the chills, see a performance that raises the hairs on the back of your neck or get goosebumps all over your body when you experience something that greatly inspires you.

This experience has many meanings, and I believe it can be one of the most important events in your life if you understand what it means and how to use it.

There are many different words to describe it from hair-raising to getting the chills, to a tingle sensation and even being referred to as a skin orgasm. I think goosebumps is probably the best way to describe it when adrenalin and blood flow all through you. You feel a sense of euphoria all over your body and like you can do absolutely anything.

For you to be able to experience massive success, you need to be able to put yourself in positive states of mind where you can find inspiration, and this is one of them. Often these states can be described as when you’re in FLOW.

In states like this you are capable of thinking and feeling at a much higher level, which will assist you to come up with ideas that would normally not be possible in your usual state of mind.

I had this sensation the other day and wanted to share with you the five amazing miracles that can come from this very important event.

1. You’re totally inspired and feel like you can change the world

During the brief moment that you experience these goosebumps, you feel like you can change the world. You start to feel like you could be the next Nelson Mandela, Muhammad Ali, Elon Musk or Arnold Schwarzenegger. The great benefits of this spine-tingling moment are that for a brief time you get to experience what everyday must be like for these people. They get to go out and inspire whole countries through their stories and believing in what is really possible if we just put our minds to it.

I often find that when I experience goosebumps or the hairs on the back of my neck standing up I want to share the experience with other people and think to myself ways in which I can achieve this. Maybe it’s through a blog article, or a speech, or in the old days, a song that I would write.

In the end, we all just want to be noticed and appreciated for what we do. Deep down, we all just want to inspire someone to do what they love doing, and this is the foundation of all success.

2. You reflect on how great life can be

At this moment, you think back to all the things that make life feel phenomenal. A lot of us don’t do this enough but this simple experience of the good kind of goosebumps can make you think about it involuntarily. There are so many things that we get to do, and we often don’t spend enough time and reflect on just how wonderful our lives can be if we let go. When I have my goosebump moment, I often find myself thinking of blue skies and the sunshine and wondering why I don’t spend more time in this state.

3. You feel fearless

In these moments when a situation gives you the good kind of goosebumps, you feel absolutely fearless like you can conquer almost any challenge. Wouldn’t this be the sort of feeling you want to face every day with? I know I certainly do, and that’s why I love these brief moments so much.

Fear is something that holds people back every day, and it can be one of the hardest things to overcome. If you look at every situation that happens in your life, there are very few where you can become fearless and do anything. A goosebump moment is one of those rare miracles where at that point in time you can overcome almost anything.

Most of our life, we spend our time trying to catch different feelings and many of those we associate with money. Feelings of fearlessness can’t be purchased, and only you can manifest them when you expose yourself to certain situations that trigger them.

“ You don’t buy yourself a shiny new Lamborghini because you love the texture of metal against your skin or because leather seats turn you on, you buy one because of the feeling you get by driving it. What if you could get this same feeling without having to spend hundreds of thousand’s of dollars? “

4. You’re doing something you love

I find that when I get the good kind of good bumps I am doing something that I love. The goosebumps can often be a signal from the universe to do more of this activity. The types of experiences that give me these feelings are things that I love like listening to amazing music, seeing an amazing view for the first time, listening to a motivational speaker, writing a blog article or watching an inspiring documentary like “Fat, Sick And Nearly Dead.”

It’s in these moments that I am reminded what I love and why I love doing it. For me, the why is all based around inspiring others to live the best version of themselves but for you it might be something totally different. These goosebump moments though will help you to have more clarity as long as you become consciously aware of them and get the message they are trying to give you.

If you want to accelerate the effects of these goosebump moments, then try writing a list of all the ones you have had in the last year so that you can recreate them at any time you want.

5. You feel extremely passionate

Goosebump moments often remind you that you are really passionate about this event or story that you are witnessing. Sometimes it’s hard to know what you’re passionate about, but just think back to all the things that give you goosebumps and inspire you. Chances are there is something in these situations that can help you find your passion.

Finding your true passion and deciding to follow it no matter what is one of life’s hardest decisions. Often it’s because you know you’re partly passionate about it, but not sure if you are 100% committed to it. Use these goosebump moments to ask yourself that question and see if you would like to live the rest of your life in this state of euphoria.

**Final Thought What triggered this article?

I recently had a goosebump moment when I watched the music video for the first time by Major Lazer and Dj Snake called “Lean On.” I had heard the song before but had never seen the video. I had goosebumps all over, the hair on the back of my neck raised and I felt euphoric.

I think my reaction was a combination of seeing two different cultures acting as one, along with amazing visual landscapes that made me forget everything I was thinking about at that moment. If you had asked me whether a video and song like this would do that to me, I would have laughed and said no way.

Clearly I was wrong, and obviously everyone else agrees because the Youtube video has now had more than 125 million views.

Have I inspired you? Have I made you want more and want to experience euphoria more often? Do you think you could truly change the world from this state?

How Your Friends Determine Whether You Succeed or Not

Can anyone do without having friends? We all have our friends, we share ideas with them, talk together, have fun, and fight. Yes, that’s the baseline of friendship. But, do you know that aside from you, your friends can determine whether you achieve success or not?

There are two things in friendship which are the ability to ”love” and the ability to “influence”. This means you are loved and you are influenced. How do your friends affect your success in life? How are they one of the biggest deciding factors of your success? Let’s find out.

What type of friends do you keep? 

First, what type of friends do you keep? Who do you call your best friend? There are two different kinds of friends, good friends, and bad ones. A lot of people have lost their pathway to success and some have also found their road to success all because of the friends they keep, the people they mingle with. 

Who is your best friend? Answer carefully. Having a best friend means you find each other compatible and understanding. Analyze who your best friend is. If your best friend has not motivated you to do something positive, if who you call your bestie has never given you positive advice, lastly if your best friend has never informed and advised you on your shortcomings, then you don’t have a best friend.

This quote tells us “birds of the same feather flock together”. Countless people have changed from their good nature into a bad one all because of friends. One thing to note is, “negative people move with negative aura”. If your best friend is filled with negativity inside-out then you will surely be affected by his/her negative aura.

They influence your success with positivity or negativity 

The friends you keep can either influence you with positivity or negativity because your friends have the power to change your kind of person completely. 

This is how your friends influence you:

  1. They influence you indirectly with what they do
  2. They influence you directly by teaching and giving you advice 

Yes, that is how they influence you. For instance, you watch a movie and you like the way the actor walks. The question is if you truly like the way the actor walks, won’t you try to imitate the actor? Of course, you will.

Just the way you imitate the actor is the same way your friends can influence you with their character. However, the funny part is, they don’t have to teach you to do things like them. You just find yourself imitating and copying them gradually.

An important question to ask is, are you imitating a good friend or a bad one? If you imitate a good friend then you will be good, but if you imitate a bad person, you will surely become a bad person.

Everyone wants to succeed, a good friend will always teach, enlighten, and motivate you for success. A bad friend will only motivate you to do evil things (smoking, drinking, fight, envy,).

And you should know that things like that are a great enemy of success and even of God. So, if you have these bad elements in your life, how will you achieve success? There is no way!

And also, they can teach and advise you directly. But, what do your friends teach you? When you ask them for advice do they inspire you positively or teach you the bad stuff.? A lot of people have regretted lifelong decisions just by listening to the advice of friends. 

The company you keep has the power to influence and change you. Never forget that a positive influence will teach, motivate, and brush you up for success. While a negative influence will inspire you to become a bad person, change your good nature, and leave you with regrets in the end.

Here Are 4 Reasons Why You Should Have a Podcast, Youtube Channel or Online Show

why you should have a podcast

Confidence comes from a place of strong understanding of self. After close to three years on radio, I’ve grown from a shy introvert to a shy introvert with an extrovert persona. When the mic is turned on, I can channel a version of myself that some say is attractive, strong, and of course, confident but it wasn’t always this way.

What I want to share with you is what I discovered on this journey into broadcast that you can apply to your life, your ventures, and your personal development. This doesn’t require any fancy gear. It does require a leap of faith on your part because once you go down the road of media; it can change your life.

1. Perceived Expertise

When you go to a doctor, you expect their knowledge will guide them to a solution to your problems. When you have a show, you become your listeners’ doctor. For all the multiple thousands, maybe millions, of YouTube channels, podcasts, and user-created content in the world, each person that gets behind a mic takes a position on their passion, their opinions, and their themes.

They challenge the status quo for the benefit of their listeners in hopes to entertain and educate. With consistency on your side, those fans place you on a platform and give you permission to influence them.

2. Global Acknowledgement

One of the benefits to increasing confidence is when you receive thank you notes from people you may never meet. The feeling of enriching someone’s life from halfway around the globe, provides validation you’re enhancing someone else’s life with your wisdom and your wit.

The very first time I was told I was making a difference in someone’s life in a country other than my own, I felt like I caused massive impact that transcends my circle of influence. When you experience just how much you can cause impact and it comes back to you, it’ll change your worldview.

“Be grateful for what you have and stop complaining – it bores everybody else, does you no good, and doesn’t solve any problems.” – Zig Ziglar

3. Backed By Numbers

One of the most exciting ways to measure success is to quantify your growth. It’s not enough to just broadcast. Having subscribers and downloads helps to know, numerically, how well you’re doing. Word of caution. This can be a way to set yourself up for distress because of number envy but if you understand what the numbers mean; you can control the narrative of the numbers.

The major number that makes most people smile is 10,000. I’d advise it to be 1. Here’s why. As you grow in your industry, so does your reach. If you learned that the one person that subscribed totally changed for the better because of you, wouldn’t that be worth the effort?

4. Effective Communication

While it’s not talked about much, having a show is documentation. You create a dynamic account of your life, your industry, and the pulse on what’s important simply by having a show. When you find a channel to improve your communication skills, you demand attention and people will listen to you. You become more trusted as a leader and people will follow you once they believe you can lead them to their wants and needs.

“To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.” – Tony Robbins

These insights have helped many people become leaders and, ultimately, move others to their best selves. It’s worked for me and I hope it works for you. At the end of the day, it’s all about showing up and showing out.
