I’m So Frustrated

March 13, 2019

When you are learning something new, do you get totally frustrated if you aren’t picking it up as easily as you would like? Learning a new skill requires effort, focus, concentration, repetition, desire and a host of other things that keep you engaged. It can be frustrating!

It is part of the learning curve. I’m going through this right now. I am involved in 3 online courses that has got me screaming sometimes. I have so much work to do. I feel like I’m back in school. Well I am kinda. I love to learn. I love to dig deep into subjects of the mind. It’s my addiction. I am fascinated by how the brain works so I’m studying neuroscience. It ain’t easy. I just want to throw all the books up in the air sometimes.

 

Thank God I know this is a part of the learning process. I know I will get really good at understanding how the brain works when I keep learning, studying and applying this material to my every day life.

So how about you? What would you like to learn? Maybe you would like to learn a new language. You might suck at speaking it for awhile but with practice you will get better and better.

How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice, Practice, Practice…..

Happy New Year!

December 27, 2018

Here we are. Another year around the sun. I know for me the time has seemed to go super fast. It is like a blink of an eye. If you aren’t conscious of where, how and with whom you choose to spend our time, it will drift by without your full attention. That is why it is so important to intentionally create what it is you want in our life.

This is a great time to write down what you want to create for the next year. Why not write down 100 aspirations?  That may seem like a lot, but once your creative juices start to flow, you will be surprised as to how many more things you can think of that you want to be, do or have. It is a great exercise to stay focused on the positive too!

So, find a nice quite spot where you have no distractions, get some paper, pencils, colored pencils or whatever you feel that will stir up your imagination and design your future.

 If you want 2019 to be different for you, than you must do something different. Set your mind free, and explore the infinite possibilities that are just waiting for you. Now is your time, but only if you take the time to make it yours!


Try Something New

December 6, 2018

 

Don’t be afraid to try something new. After all the Ark was build by amateurs and the Titanic was build by experts.

 

What is really holding you back from trying something new? Something you really want to be, or have or do? From my own personal experience, it was my self esteem. I didn’t feel good enough. When I finally got over this feeling of insecurity and fear, I stepped out and started doing the things I really love to do. One of the things I love to do is speak. Last week I spoke in front of about 100 people and it was awesome. Every time I get out and conquer my fear, I feel so good that I was able to do what I love.

Just like the lion in the Wizard of Oz, you got to find your courage to step out into your fear. You are going to feel the fear, however action conquers fear. Iv’e made so many blunders and mistakes when I started going out speaking, however I didn’t stop. I know that mistakes are part of growth. So whatever it is you want to be, do or have, know you can do it if you give yourself that opportunity.

 

If you want to get a jump start and make 2019 your best year ever, then you owe it to yourself to join this master class. You will learn exactly how to step in and really overcome any obstacle that is holding you back from living full out!


Every Day In Every Way

June 28, 2018

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?


Give Up!

December 7, 2017

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.         Thomas Edison

 

How many times have you hit a brick wall when you’re working hard on a project or idea you want to manifest? You just find that you’ve tried and tried but nothing is showing up. Do you give up or to you continue?

I’ve heard it said that the difference between try and triumph is a little umph.

In Napoleon Hill’s book Think and Grow Rich, he talks about a true story of a man who discovered a gold mine but he needed money to purchase the tools to excavate the mother load  out of the ground.  He  borrowed money from his relatives to buy the equipment necessary to dig for it. Unfortunately he hit a wall and found no gold, so he gave up 3 feet from the where the gold was to be found. He sold the equipment to a junk yard dealer who was smart enough to hire an engineer who knew all about how gold is mined, and eureka he discovered the gold.

I know it can be really challenging to keep going when the money gets tight or you’re not seeing what you want. But if you believe in your dream, if you have a strong vision, calling and purpose, keep going. Ask for help and keep moving forward with a positive attitude. You could be 3 feet from your own gold.

If you’re feeling stuck, I can work with you. Let’s talk.

 

 


The Fountain Of Youth Is Faith

November 16, 2017

             You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt: As young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear.                                                                                                                                                                                        Samuel Ullman

This was the message from the crypto- quote I like to do every morning. This really hit home with me. When I doubt myself I question my ability to continue reaching for my goal. When I have a big goal it can be challenging. If I allow the doubt to take over it feels so heavy, which can make me feel older than I am.  With doubt my desire can weaken and it pulls me down. But when I am taking positive action and feeling good, faith creates a feeling of youth and vibrancy in my body and mind.

The same is true for when I feel confident. I feel young and ageless. I can go on for hours performing a task and stay focused on my purpose. But when fear creeps its ugly head into my day, I feel tired, and just want to give up and tune out.

That’s why it is so important to keep your purpose, vision and goals in your mind at all times. Surround yourself with positive people who will lift you up and help you stay in the mind frame of faith and self-confidence.

Everyone can feel defeated at times. Life can be tough.  With passion, faith, confidence and perseverance, you will have the energy, to get through those doubtful and fearful moments. Show up for yourself and be the best you can for today. Do what you can just for today and you will feel young and vibrant to follow through on your goals.


Do You Got it What it Takes?

August 31, 2017

 

Persistence is the key ingredient in achieving anything you desire from life. It is holding to a course of continued action, belief, and purpose without giving in or giving up.  Napoleon Hill wrote in his book Think and Grow Rich, “There may be no heroic connotation to the word persistence, but the quality is to a person’s character what carbon is to steel.” Persistence is a habit that will begin to cultivate, when you realize your life’s purpose, have a strong desire, and strengthen your will.  Set goals for yourself and follow through on them.

Nothing worthwhile in life comes without struggles to overcome.  There are no cheap goods in the heavenly market, and everything worth having is expensive. Surround yourself with people who will lift you up, and are pursuing their own dreams, have faith and take action every day toward your dream.  The opposite of persistence is procrastination, this is truly an enemy.  It will keep you stuck, weak and create all kinds of excuses why you can not accomplish something. Face yourself honestly and openly, challenge yourself, to overcome this habit. Believe in yourself and know that you can not fail if you persist, and move in the direction of your dream.  For every failure brings with it the seed of an equivalent success.

The philosopher Henry David Thoreau quoted “If you advance confidently in the direction of your dream, and live the life you can image, you will meet with success, unexpected in common hours.”  Go live your dream.
