You’re A Brainiac!

July 19, 2018

We are living in very uncertain times. Things are speeding up so rapidly that if we do not have the knowledge, tools, strategies and techniques to keep up with the pace of these changes we will be left behind groveling in a sea of mediocrity which will never get us to where we truly desire to be. So, the question is, how do we acquire the knowledge and mindset to take us further than we ever thought possible?

This is where coaching comes in. We must begin to do some introspective work to see who you really are. What are your habits, behaviors, beliefs and image about yourself? What is the conversation you are having with yourself? What are the conversation you are having with other people?

It takes .10th of a second for people to determine if they like you and want to engage in doing business with you and .07 seconds to sense they don’t trust you. That’s how fast and important it is for you to really be authentic and know yourself. If you are uncertain in anyway within yourself, people will pick up on this feeling before you even utter hello.

Not only must our intentions be clear, we must be aware of the impact we are having on others. If we only focus on our intention, we can often have a negative impact on others, triggering their fight, flight, freeze or appease impulse which is controlled by the Amygdala in the brain or the lower brain. We immediately will turn people off.

Being aware of your intentions and the impact you want to convey will communicate positive reactions in others, which will lead them to trust and like you. This triggers the Prefontal Cortex, known as the executive or decision making part of the brain.

We actually have seven brains.

1-The Primitive Brain or (reptilian brain- sensors threats)

2-Heart Brain- Our heart is much more than just a pump. (We either sync or not with others)

3-Limbic Brain (Stores memory and history of emotions)

4- Neocortex (Hardwired for language, storing information, basic thinking, reasoning and cognitive skills)

5- Prefrontal Cortex (The youngest part of the brain & often called the executive brain)

6- Gut-Brain – We truly are what we eat. (The gut brain is revolutionizing medicine’s understanding of the links between, mood, health and even the way we think. Scientists call this little brain the ecteric nervous system.)

7-Interstidium- A layer of skin under the epidermis. It communicates and gathers information.

Until we understand how we can link or body, mind and spirit into alignment, we will never truly be successful and live our best life. This knowledge is vital to your success, happiness, and health in these ever -changing times.

Coaching will revolutionize the way you see yourself and propel you to new heights in all areas of your life.

You Fool!

July 5, 2018

A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise man.

Bruce Lee

I think one of the biggest fears we have is looking like a fool or being criticized. We don’t like to look, act or be different. Most people like to fit in and conform.

I remember being back in school, I was afraid to ask a question because I didn’t want to look foolish. But then someone was bold enough to ask the exact question I wanted to ask and everyone was happy that they did because most of the students didn’t understand what the teacher was saying.

Now I have learned to step outside my comfort zone, have confidence in my abilities and know there are no stupid questions.

What is it about taking a risk to look foolish that we are so afraid of?  People made fun of Karl Benz, the creator of the automobile Mercedes Benz back in 1886. He actually had to take out his car at night to test drive it so people wouldn’t laugh and ridicule  him.  Or Gugliemo Marconi, an inventor and electrical engineer who pioneered work on long distance radio transmissions. His friends had him institutionalized thinking he was nuts to think he could send messages through the air. There are many such stories of people who took the risk in doing something, if they believed strongly in it.

What is it that you would like to accomplish but are afraid to do. Take the risk, believe in yourself and you could be the fool laughing all the way to the bank. Go for it.


Every Day In Every Way

The key to happiness is really progress, growth, constantly working on yourself and developing something.

Lewis Howes

 

This is the kaizen principle. The kaizen method is the Japanese word for improvement. In business, kaizen refers to activities that continuously improve all functions of you business and involve all employees from the CEO to the assembly line workers.

It is constant and never- ending improvement every day to bring you and your business to a higher level.

What are you doing today that will improve your life? What are your thought feelings and actions?

What if you invested an hour each day to create new ideas or improve in some way? The mornings are a great time to contemplate and stir up your imagination to improve. Before the hustle and bustle of the day, the morning offers solitude and peace to really think about where you are and where you would like to go.

The natural laws of the life are to grow and thrive. If you plant a tomato seed in healthy soil, give it water, fertilizer, sun, care for it and remove the weeds that will try to take over, you will be rewarded with an abundant of fruit.

Well the same laws apply to your life. If you want to improve your circumstances, you must take the time to feed your mind with positive thoughts,  practice the kaizen method, and you too will be rewarded with an abundant of good things!

If your business or life is struggling in any way to survive, take the time to dive deep into contemplation, and look to see how you can improve it.

Hiring a coach to discover ways to eliminate negative habits, beliefs, and behaviors can save you countless hours, dollars and stress.

Isn’t it time for you to thrive?


Think About It

June 21, 2018

People demand freedom of speech to make up for the freedom of thought.”

Soren Kierkgaard

Thinking is the highest function we are capable of. It requires concentration, self discipline and creativity. Everything that we see in the material world came from someones thought power. So why do we have so much poverty, unhappiness and sickness?  What are we actually thinking about anyway? Or are we thinking at all?

George Bernard Shaw said; “Two percent of the people think; three percent of the people think they think; and ninety-five percent of the population would rather die than think.” Thinking is hard work. Actually it is the hardest work you will ever do.  Staying with a problem to find a solution requires effort.  James Allen Said; ” Until thought is linked with purpose there is no intelligent accomplishment.” These three men were all great thinkers. Thinking is a gift from source energy. We have the freedom to choose any thought we want, yet we use our minds for small tasks rather than accomplishing great things in our life.

 We all want things in our life. Those things require thought power. If you want a healthy body, you have to eat healthier foods, exercise, and use disciple to see yourself being that person with the lean body. If you want to have a higher position in your company, than you must learn what it takes to step into that role. Ask yourself some powerful questions. Who do you want to become? What do you really want from life?

You can have it if you take the time to think about it. Hiring a coach is one of the best ways to move the creative process along faster. Two minds are better than one.


From Here to Eternity

June 14, 2018

If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow.

Meditation, mindfulness, silence, and being present in the moment are all about quieting the mind and calming the body. If you have never done this, fifteen minutes of meditation can feel like an eternity.

Being still is something that is uncomfortable and foreign if you never were taught to do this. I know I didn’t grow up with parents that practiced this. We live in a very busy world. It is all about go, go, go and do, do, do. However what ever you want to do, be or have will come to you so much easier when we go within and calm your mind. Everything is created twice, once in the spiritual form and then in the physical.There are so many benefits you will get when you begin making a daily practice out of meditating.

I now meditate for fifteen minutes every day and am so much more peaceful, patient, happier and healthier. The things I desire come to me much more effortlessly too. It is as if the struggle has disappeared and I just allow the universe to met me half way in acquiring what I want.

So, if you are ready to be here now but touch the hands of eternity to manifest what ever you want into your life, begin your daily practice of meditation. If you need help beginning this, I would love to be your guide.


Seek and Destroy

June 7, 2018
6 months into the year! Have you reached your goals? Have you lost the weight or given up those negative habits you set out to do on the 1st of the year? If not, what’s holding you back?
Are subconscious beliefs sabotaging your personal power? If you got more “I can’t” than “I can” messages as a child, you are probably having more “I can’t” than “I can” experiences as an adult. In other words, if you heard messages from parents and other authority figures that told you that your opinion didn’t count and that your actions didn’t matter, you are likely to have subconscious beliefs that mirror those ideas. The result is often a person with deep insecurities about their ability to positively affect the course of their lives. Some people overcompensate for this feeling of powerlessness by making a career out of becoming powerful. Usually this sense of power is achieved by acquiring money, possessions and social status.
Unfortunately, these external signs of power seldom satisfy the gnawing feeling of insecurity and powerlessness within. Anger,procrastination or  any negative behavior are signs that you are sabotaging your personal power.  People with authentic power can have an abundance of money, possessions and social status, but their personal power does not come from the things they have, but rather from who they are.

Sample Beliefs:

  • I trust the decisions I make.
  • I trust the Divine guidance I am receiving.
  • I acknowledge my ability and responsibility to make a positive difference in the world.
  • I actively embrace the opportunities that come with change.
  • I am true to my personal vision.
  • I am willing to take the risks necessary to live my life openly and honestly.
  • I give myself permission to do what I love.
So if you’re ready to get to the next level of greatness and change those behaviors that are not serving you, let’s have a conversation.
The quality of your culture depends on the quality of your relationships, which depend on the quality of your conversations.


It’s A Mistake

May 31, 2018

We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future.                                                           Steve Maraboli

I have made a ton of mistakes in my life. I continue to make them. Every time I fail or take a wrong turn, I do my best to see what I can do differently. How can I improve in some way?

I used to beat myself up over my mistakes, however I have learned that to move forward I need to forgive myself and do better today. Here is an acronym John C. Maxwell created to help him keep mistakes in perspective.

M-messages that give us feedback about life.

I-interruptions that should cause us to reflect and think.

S-signposts that direct us to the right path.

T-tests that push us to greater maturity.

A-awakenings that keep us in the game mentally.

K-keys that we can use to unlock the next door of opportunity.

E-explorations that let us journey where we’ve never been before.

S-statements about our development and progress.

 

So the next time you make a mistake, just know that you can climb out of the hole that you might think you are in. It is never to late to start again. Just keep moving forward and take a new path.
