Don’t Walk Alone

Don’t Walk Alone

When it comes to setting and achieving your goals, don’t walk alone. Invite someone to join you in the process and make it a joint project. If you want to really empower yourself, create a Mini-Mastermind group. When you share your goal with others and they share with you, you can energize each other through brainstorming. As you each develop individual strategies and action steps, you become accountability partners to one another.

I have seen remarkable yields from the collaborative spirit of like-minded people focused on success. Many of my clients are seen one-on-one through Leadership or Personal Entrepreneurial and Success Coaching, or through Transformative Life Centering as we address years wasted from an abuse situation. In each case, upon completing our work together, in your hands are new reigns, allowing you to ride into a new future of your choosing.

What Coaches or Therapists Won’t Tell You:

I’m of the belief that a person should not require coaching or therapy for life. Sure, things come along and there’s value to a refreshment once in a while. Yet, once you are freed from the abuses or misperceptions carried for years, you are ready to begin living your life. The same is true for life coaching. Once we go through and navigate the things that seem to make a person feel stuck, it’s time to start living.

It’s amazing to watch the things that occur when people become empowered and create Mini-Mastermind groups. Instead of staying in a coaching or therapy mode, within a group each member becomes the coach and is in turn coached by other members together. A creative spirit is formed by the group and long-lasting friendships begin to grow stronger.

This is Important:

If you try to do it alone, what will you do on the day when you’re tired? It becomes easy to slack off without a partner to motivate you. The habit of avoidance can turn into inaction. Inaction then gives the fruit of your goals to someone else willing to stay the course. This is why creating a Mastermind group is so important.

Within your group, you gain new accountability partners as you collectively create successful strategies. Through each process, businesses have been created, books jointly written, new products developed and lives lived at new exciting and rewarding levels. Given the possibilities of success with a Mastermind group, don’t walk alone.

Do you want to create you Mini-Mastermind group yet are unsure where to start? Reach out to me. I can help you. I create small groups of people that empower one another so nothing will ever hold you back.

 

Good food, exercise and rest

Good Food, Exercise and Rest

Life can be busy. Yet, it’s important to take time for good food, exercise and rest. While busyness is not bad thing, being too busy can take away your positive gains if you move into a depletion mode. If you were to drive across the desert on a hot summer day, wouldn’t you ensure that your tank is full, and your oil and water is topped off to avoid overheating and subsequent destruction? Of course you would. Which is preferable: Working longer or living longer?

Being engaged in a project or interacting with people are good things. Yet, pushing your health with a poor diet or little sleep will leave you as a rusting hulk along the highway of success you could have had.

Here are three important nourishing things you need for your mind and body:

1. Water – Stay hydrated. Water is like the oil needed by your car that keeps your system flowing and moving.

2. Balanced Diet – Limit yourself to eating only when you are hungry. When eating healthy, your body will automatically align itself to your perfect weight.

3. Exercise – Take a walk, get up from the desk, move your body. Without a little movement, your body becomes stiff and subject to injury.

4. Sleep – You should strive for seven hours of healthy rest per night. This allows your mind and body time to recover from the activity of the day, and prepare for tomorrow.

How does this help you reach your goals?

When your mind and body is tired, you limit your ability to focus and create the life you want. Remember…you create what you focus on. What would expect to get if you allow yourself into a state of depletion?

Honor yourself with good food, exercise and rest.

The more you hydrate, nourish, and rest your mind and body, your ability to creatively visualize and bring to form your goal increases.

Focused Affirmations Attract the Good

Focused Affirmations Attract the Good

If someone were to ask you to name the important areas in your life that you should strengthen, what would you say? Our lives are so diverse, it would be impossible to name all the aspects of who we are. Yet, here are just a few to think about. How about your confidence, health, ability to love, forgive, and overcome challenges? What about the goal-setting and the entrepreneurial parts of your life? Focused Affirmations Attract the Good.

Strengthening your life with positive affirmations is an extremely useful practice. It’s an ongoing reminder to your subconscious mind where your feelings and beliefs reside. When the topic of affirmations come up, some automatically jump to the old question, “Isn’t that just about positive thinking?”

Is that a bad thing? For that, I say, “If people don’t want positive thoughts, they can go ahead and think as many negative thoughts that they want.” The problem with that is they’ll likely end up with high blood pressure, stress, an increase in wrinkles from not smiling, and they’ll attract negative people and situations.

Remember that we can attract those things we focus on like less stress, better health, good people and opportunities when we focus on the positive. I’m not going to help teach people how to screw their lives up. They can do that all by themselves if they choose not to take the time to focus on the positive.

The big difference between positive thinking and the approach described is that focused positive thinking targets specific areas of your life. Here’s how it works:

1. Pick seven areas of your life that you want to strengthen, one area for each day of the week.

2. Then, in your journal (you DO have one right?) write down an affirmation in present tense as though it currently exists in your life.

3. Then, in a paragraph or two (more if you like), describe how it feels to have those positive circumstances in your life today. Don’t write, “I will” or “I would like to have”. Try something like, “Because I have _____ in my life, I feel ____.

4. Describe how these affirmations and feelings apply to your goals. This might be a good time to jot down thoughts that you can use when creating the details of your goal.

Writing about what you think and what you feel, is focused thought that goes right to the subconscious mind. This process brings reality to it and subsequently creates it in your life.

Do this every day for 28-days, each day moving to the next topic. You’ll find that you are creating a healthy practice of affirming your life and creating your goals. Over time you’ll notice that your goals and writing may become more focused and specific.

Here are some examples to start with. Feel free to use these or adjust them as you see fit to apply them to your life.

CONFIDENCE: “Every Day in Every Way, I AM Confident and Capable.”

HEALTH: “Each Day, I Enjoy Good Health, Exercise, Rest, and I Eat Healthily.”

LOVE: “Every Day, I Fill My Life with Positive and Loving People.”

FORGIVENESS: “I Forgive ALL Who Caused me Hurt, and I Wish Them Well.”

OVERCOMING CHALLENGES: “Every Day I Overcome Challenges Easily.”

SUCCESS: “I Attract Good Opportunities and Wealth Frequently and Easily.”

GRATEFULNESS: “I am Grateful for the Good People, and Benefits of My Life.”

After 28-days, go back and read your journal writings. Notice how your goals have either materialized during this time, or there are indicators of their coming. When you choose to continue the practice of journaling, you continue the process of creating.

Create Your Dream Life in Pictures

Create Your Dream Life in Pictures

In our last post, we discussed bringing life to your dream by writing it out in detail. Once you create your dream life in pictures by writing out the goal, you bring life to it and you start feeding it the right energy. You may begin to notice how you’re now able to see it in your dreams at night, or daydreams during the day. Imagine having it and the accompanying feelings of satisfaction. With repetition, it becomes easy to literally visualize accomplishing ownership of your goal. Again, this strengthens the energy that attracts and draws your goal to you.

Another useful method of increasing positive energy to the manifesting power of your thoughts is a simple visual tool. Our minds think in pictures and when we see images that represent the goals we seek, it reinforces the ability to focus, feel and attract.

The tool is a simple vision board with photos, drawings or other visual depictions that strengthen the ownership and reality of attracting wealth and goodness into your life. As your written description is updated, modify the vision board as well. This goes far beyond “positive thinking”. You are now creating. When you can make it real, you can make it yours.

Create Your Life in Detail

Create Your Life in Detail

At the very beginning of this series, we discussed the natural law that says the things you think about are the same things you attract. When considering the power of attraction, let’s compare with the attracting power of a magnet. Create your life in detail. The stronger the magnetic energy, the stronger the attracting qualities. Considering our thoughts as an attracting mechanism, we can increase the power by the realism and accompanying feelings that come with those thoughts. 

One way that you can increase your power is through journaling your goal with detailed descriptions of what it looks and feels like. For this example, suppose your goal is a home on the beach. Don’t settle for a description like, “I want a white house on the beach.” That’s taking the easy way out.  

Within our minds, we move around 60,000 thoughts per day. It’s time to focus the priority thoughts (our goals) by putting energy into them. Those thoughts and their power to manifest overrides the daily insignificant mental rumblings that get in the way of your progress. 

Write down, in detail what the home looks like, the type of materials, the view, the sounds, who lives there, who visits, describe each and every room with all the details you can describe of the home you want. Continue to focus and build until it starts to become real in your mind. The more intently you bring it to life, both in your mind and your body. When you experience physical feelings of excitement, it becomes real in your subconscious mind.  

As a Board Certified Hypnotist, I see this all the time. Realistically you could say that hypnosis is intensively focused on thoughts that allow the subconscious to accept detailed suggestion as a reality. I see this all the time. I primarily work with abuse and stress clients, along with people that are searching for success in their lives. When we neutralize the negative emotional triggers that held them back and replace them with the positive awareness of an exciting and dynamic future, they naturally attract it into their lives.

When you create the belief that your goal is available to you, you can create it. You then begin to live with an expectancy of attracting it in real life. Adjust and perfect the description of the life you want each day and right before sleep each night.

Then, don’t be surprised when it shows up in your life.
