Know What You Want and Make It Happen!

Know What You Want and Make It Happen!

How is your life and/or your business doing? Is it stagnating, boring, going nowhere? Have you become obsessed with meeting those loan repayments or trying to just survive until the next fistful of money comes in? Are you having trouble maintaining your positive expectancy about life and/or business?

The way to live satisfying lives is to simply dream up the things that we want to do and then make them happen. A simple statement but so few of us can put it into practice! You can put it into practice if you take these steps! First, find yourself a quiet, comfortable location where you will be free from disturbances. Ensure that you have paper and pen handy as you will need to write some things down.

1. Brainstorm Ideas

For the next ten to fifteen minutes, write down all the things you’d like to do. A few rules for this exercise are in order- don’t evaluate as you write! For example, if you’d like to go overseas on holidays for twelve months – don’t stop and think whether you can afford it. Just write it down. Evaluation can occur later. At this stage, write down all the things that you’d like to do assuming there was nothing that you couldn’t do.

2. Prioritize Ideas

When you have finished brainstorming, you will have a list of the things you would like to do. Your next step is to review your list and sort it into priority order. Again, do not evaluate any of these items while you are ranking them. Number the items from things you want most to least.

3. Evaluation

Now, look at the top three items on your list and ask yourself the question: “What is stopping me from doing these things? It will help to clarify things if you write down these reasons. For example, if your number one choice is to go overseas for twelve months, your reasons for not being able to do so could be: can’t afford it, can’t leave my business unattended, or afraid I won’t like it when I get there.

4. Create an Action Plan

Your final step in this process is to put your plan into action – and do it now! Don’t wait for a more opportune time – the best time is always NOW!

However, don’t let your big plans stop you from doing some of your smaller plans now. Pick a couple of activities you can do within the next month that won’t cost you money. DO THEM! You will feel like a different person for having done so.

4 Ways to Postpone your Procrastination

We’ve all done it at some time or other. We put off our exercise routine until tomorrow; we continually delay finishing that project or starting that business.

Procrastination is the mother of all demons and can literally stop you in your tracks from achieving all that you desire.

Here are 4 effective processes you can use to slay this giant.

1. Do it now

Hold your breath and jump right in! Putting things off until the last minute is a bad habit and like all habits is ingrained in our subconscious mind and hard to break. It feels like the normal thing to do and we simply continue along our path. To complete a task immediately may even feel strange or like a forced action.

2. Take baby steps

Sometimes we procrastinate because the task may be intimidating to us. Perhaps we have no possible inkling on where to start. In these cases, it is quite ne to take it one step at a time. Say you are preparing a business plan and for the 5th time this week, you’ve turned on the PC and looked at the blank screen. Or you’ve just remembered you need to do some more research before you begin…you’re still not ready. You simply need to break down the project into smaller pieces and tackle each bit separately. Make each task an individual project and after completion of each one, celebrate and acknowledge your achievement.

3. Forget it

Why force the issue? If you have been ‘dragging your feet’ on something for a very long time, it may all be for the best. Something, somewhere is trying to tell you something. That something is your intuition and it is usually right! Think about something that you have been putting off again and again and again. What are the reasons that you need to complete this task in the first place? Does someone want you to do this? What is THEIR agenda? What are YOUR reasons for this lengthy delay? I find it amazing that 99% of the time I put off doing something, I am thankful that I did! Disregarding a project after a long period of procrastination is however usually a last resort.

4. Support team (I can’t help you with this one)

Do you put off tasks because you feel that they are too big and complex for you to handle alone? Or because you need assistance? Be honest with yourself. “No man is an island”. Ask for help! There are many resources out there that can provide you with all you need to carry out your job. If you’re a solo-professional and you put off answering emails, then don’t answer them yourself. Hire an assistant, and some college students that want experience, get a family member to help. Procrastinating on life changing activities could be as a result of fear of the unknown. Get a mastermind group together, and a mentor, join a support group. You don’t have to do it all by yourself. Just ensure that to kick this habit; you do what feels good to you in whatever method you choose. You’ll surely postpone procrastination for a very long time

New Thought!

New Thoughts!

Creating a new life requires new thoughts. It’s simple. Decide what you want – like weighing 150 pounds and being and off your meds. Then, in your mind and on paper, write A LOT about what you need to think and feel to do the shit to get there.

Most of us try to make ourselves do things while still keeping our old bad thoughts. If you picture your future self -planning with ease, that means you today makes a plan and quits complaining about it, shutting down the doubts. It means you’ve got your planner in a place you can’t miss it, and keep stickie notes on your desk as a backup in case you need to do a quickie plan. You today is learning how to be excuse-free so that future you plans with ease.

Or maybe you picture your future self being at goal weight with ease. Enjoying your life. That means you today must notice when you’re thinking how hard weight-loss is and focus on ways to make it easier. You today must spend time finding out what’s working and feeling easier and write about it.

Your future self is not dwelling on the past. You’re not focused on all the things you can’t do. You’re glad you finally lost the weight. That means you today needs to notice when you’re thinking “I can’t” and challenge yourself to figure out what you can do in this moment to think “I can.”

When you Think you Can, YOU WILL!

 “Why do you do what you do?”

 “Why do you do what you do?”

Meant in a broader sense, of course—not why do you get up in the morning and put your left foot down before your right—though, that could lead to some interesting answers as well, I’m sure.

To be asked “Why do you do what you do?” necessitates a deeper answer and therein lies a harder question.

What drives you, what inspires you, and what motivates you?

These are the answers we’re searching for.

So, how would you respond?

Why we do what we do “comes naturally,” once we are able to recognize who and what we truly are, at our core. Understanding why we do what we do comes with deep reflection of self. Awareness of what makes our heart beat, the things we get out of bed in the morning for (left foot before right).

Experiences in our lives also lend influence as to why we do the things we do.

The experience, coupled with the way it made you feel, led you to pursue an avenue that allowed you to look back to remember why you started, whatever it is you started. 

Whether it was the decision to start eating better.  To start that workout plan you have been putting off for years.  To start going after what you truly want in life. 

Some are intrinsically drawn to what they do—it is the essence of their being, and following any other path wouldn’t feel right. What has shaped and changed your life—isn’t a job, or career, it’s a way of life. If you want to feel better, then what are you going to do to make that happen, today.

It’s understood that we cannot all be so fortunate as to follow our hearts all our lives. We have to survive: The bills come, unexpected obstacles side swipe us, and life happens—not always as we plan.

But it’s important, still, to recognize that fire within us. While we may not be able to do daily what we wish we could, we still have the ability to live those values regardless of what we “do” for work.

Our feelings, emotions, and the difficult circumstances we face all throughout life shape us into the people that we become. But sometimes, when met with adversity, we don’t always ask the hard questions we should.

All too often we yield to our circumstances and hold back, accepting that this is our fate, or the feeling that we can’t do something.  Overcoming obstacles, taking the road less traveled, or forging your own path is not an easy feat, but it’s oftentimes the most necessary.

Rather than letting the challenges you encounter push you around, allow them to wake you up—allow them to be your call to action. Do hard things! Do the work to get you to your goals. 

Don’t let another day go by, telling yourself you will start tomorrow.  Start RIGHT NOW, TODAY. 

Having a coach will change your life!

Having a coach will change your life!

When you’re going through the hard growth, there is nothing more valuable than going through it with someone who has wisdom, perspective, and very sound judgment, especially if you have a crazy crazy mind like mine.

Every conversation that you have with the coach is a reset to what is possible for you. It’s an hour a week where you focus on believing and making decisions for the person you want to be and the life you want to create. How valuable is that for creating the result you want? Having that hour for two people’s minds to focus on what you want.

Having a coach also means hearing the truth, even when it’s hard. The most powerful thing that you’re ever going to hear is, “You are wrong.” It’s the best news ever. Because if you’re wrong, you have room to grow, room to evolve, and possibility for new results. When you’re right about your shitty situation, there is no solution because you’re right.

A coach keeps you in massive action, and massive action is the only way that you achieve your results.

In a society where we feel so isolated as humans, working with a coach helps you feel less alone in this world.

And then one of my favorite things that I think makes a coach so valuable is the way they see you.

When you want a result that you don’t have yet, you don’t have it because you aren’t that person yet, and you have to grow to become that person. You have to think differently, you have to feel differently, you have to do different things. One of the most painful things we as humans encounter is massive growth, and so one of my favorite things that I think makes a coach so valuable is the way they see you. They believe you can do it, and then possibility sneaks in and opens your mind up.

What is the value of getting where you’re going 100 times faster? Or feeling more alive every day. Of being healthier in your mind and body and spirit? Of having someone believe in you when you don’t?

How valuable is creating the result you want in your life?

This is the value of having a coach.

Do Hard Things!

I CAN! I WILL!

Thinking about what you CAN do and what you CAN change is everything.

I can handle this…I always do.

What is the next best decision I can make?


It’s just a matter of time until I figure it out so don’t quit.


What’s in my control in this situation?

Sometimes you just need some new thoughts to open your mind up to keep ongoing. Use these the next time you feel stuck, see yourself procrastinating, or are on the verge of quitting.

Mind Power: The Ultimate Success Formula

Mind Power: The Ultimate Success Formula

What does it take to be successful?

Ask around and you will find different answers to the formula of success. The truth is, success leaves clues and you can achieve the success in the area you desire by observing the common qualities and principles. They are simple and considered to be common sense but most people simply do not follow them.

Let me share with you one of my favorite quotes:

“There are no secrets to success. It is the results of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure” Colin Powell

As stated in that quote, there are three key factors to achieve massive success in your life:

  1. Preparation

You don’t have to wait for everything to be perfect. Start with the first step and keep moving. Success doesn’t happen overnight. Prepare, prepare, and prepare. You must be ready to receive the success you desire. Set your sight to the destination that you want to achieve, then work and prepare for the moment when the opportunity knocks your door.

  1. Hard Work

Success needs hard work. Don’t listen to these ‘get rich quick’ schemes. You need to build your character and work hard on yourself and your business to achieve greatness. Work hard and work smart. Do the right things and do them in the right way. Don’t procrastinate. Take bold actions. Work long hours and craft your legacy.

  1. Learning from failure

Successful people do not see failures as failures. They see them as important learning lessons. Lessons that are capable of giving them insights to prevent such mistakes from happening again. By adopting this mindset of turning each failure into a learning lesson or opportunity, you can never fail until you yourself quit.

Do work! If you need help or accountability, I am your girl!

Anxiety

Anxiety

There are three facets of a personality around which the fabric of life drapes. Namely professional, emotional and physical. In our quest for self-mastery, we tend to work mostly on these parts. The true art of life is to balance them all while handling daily challenges that are sure to arise.  If any facet gets imbalanced, you and those surrounding you, will immediately notice it. In fact, the delicate balancing act among the three facets can also be evidenced in your environment.  Let’s understand what creates the imbalance in the first place. What are the primary reasons requiring a need for balance to match our desired growth?

If a random group of hard-working people are asked, ‘How many regularly feel the ‘fear’ of doing something new?’ one will find that such fear is relatively common. Let me put it another way, ‘When it was last time you did something for the first time?’ You might be surprised with the resulting paucity of affirmative responses. Remember, the question is not about what the group has been doing. Instead, the purpose behind asking these questions is to put the person and his or her feelings in an uncomfortable (but temporary) situation. In the end, it is the feelings of the unknown that cloud our thinking. But fortunately for us, uncertainty can also serve as the immediate trigger examining our emotions initially.

We often label these feelings as ‘Anxiety.’ And anxiety is a natural state of mind where a what we feel is what triggers fear in the first place. Some experts argue that it was fear during our human evolution that saved us from extinction at the hands of so many natural enemies.

So, one is left to ask: why anxiety in the present age is looked at as a negative experience?

No doubt, you have heard and read much about ‘stress’. Stress is what one feels when under inordinate pressure—whether physical or emotional, no matter the source. This is also the exactly the same stress you feel in a variety of situations—including when you don’t get what you need in your professional or personal live.  This resulting pressure is inevitably sparked whenever performance is continuously demanded over and above your available hours. It is the pressure that creates a work-life imbalance that seems to be so common in today’s society.

The bottom line is such a situation contributes to the failure to heal your body and mind. The same goes for ‘Anxiety in today’s context. You feel it when modern life inhibits healing our minds and bodies in a natural way due to the stress we experience on a day- to-day basis.

How can one address these feelings?  Is there any way to address fear, anxiety, and stress in a holistic manner? Or put in different words, how can I rid myself of this stress and overcome the accompanying anxiety?

This is often where coaching adds the most value—helping you to identify the early warning signs, and then teaching techniques to correctly identify and resolve the feeling we call anxiety.

So ‘anxiety’ is a product of significant imbalance in your professional, emotional and physical status. If, as I strongly believe, we are products of our own choices, then it your choice alone as to what thoughts and inclinations you follow. Afterall, choice empowers us to make decisions. And the decisions we make on a daily basis form the foundation of who we are and what we do. Remember, it was your choice to get up early in the morning and go out for a jog. Or, it could have been your choice to stay in bed for 30 more minutes. Your choice and is yours alone, and you benefit or are penalized according to how your thoughts guide your choices. Remember, it is well said that, it is the first choice you make in the morning that sets the stage for your entire day.  How you make these choices ultimately is a function of your mindset. If you have a good coach to help you focus on your life’s goals by fine-tuning your mindset correctly, it is highly likely that you will achieve those goals.

The proper balancing of your life is an act of self-justice (your mindset is the springboard for what you choose to do and not to do). Some might question how can you be certain that your choices and decisions are correct? My response is, I am not talking about right or wrong in these instances. Instead, a correct decision is a matter of position and circumstance. Here, the coach provides helpful guidance on what to choose, when to choose, and how to choose. Coaches are here to guide clients to choices that are balanced in nature and to help them further in their personal and individual goals to create a better life.

In conclusion, ‘anxiety’ is created by nature to help us stay alive. Anxiety can be your friend. A good coach will help you manage that anxiety to ensure the proper balance and make your life better in every sense.
