Discipline is being able to force yourself to do something in spite of how you feel over and over and over until it becomes a habit.
The word discipline comes from the Latin word discipulus meaning “student”. Or you can say to be a learner. In other words having self discipline in being a good student who wants to learn. It is a high level of awareness to give yourself a command and follow through with it. If you want to be a great musician, you have to practice playing your instrument every day for hours. If you want to be a great athlete you have to train your mind and body every day, in spite of how tired or achy you feel. This goes for anything you desire to master.
This year my word that I am giving my attention to is FOCUS. I will discipline myself to focus on the things I desire to manifest into my life in a relaxed state of mind. I say relaxed because if I try to force myself to do this in a tense way, I am just sabotaging my efforts. What is it that you really want to create in your life for 2020? With discipline, you can make it happen. Hire a coach, get an accountability partner and practice, practice practice!

I love watching movies. Old movies that is. I am fascinated with movies that were made in the 40’s and 50’s. I find that most of them were done so well. The script, acting, cinematography, and production were first class. I do like some of the movies made today but I don’t go out of my way to watch them, so when I’m on a plane, I get a chance to catch up on the new releases. On my way home from Australia last month, I got caught up. One of the movies I watched was a National Geographic Movie, Free Solo. OMG, it was amazing. It made me think of what it means to be alive. To live your life like you were on the edge of life or death, literally.
It made me think of what the meaning of life really is and what is it that holds us back from living it full out. I mean, I don’t have the calling to scale mountains like Alex Honnold, but I do know my purpose and have a desire to reach more people through coaching because I love my work and I know it works. It made me think of what I need to do to become better, more focused and give it my all.
If you have a desire inside you, really ask yourself, what are you willing to do, to give up and practice to become your best? To live fully and be alive! Go for it. Reach inside of yourself for the answers. Stir up that juice that is calling you to something greater. Go watch the movie, maybe it will inspire you as it did me. You have greatness in you. What is calling you? Go for it! Seek it and you shall find! Risk Being Alive!
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…..

We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting. Joseph Campbell
When a crisis hits you like loss of some kind, an accident or illness, you can either rise above or sink into the abyss. The choice is yours. There have been a few times in my life where I was at the edge of despair. We all go through times that can rattle us to the core of our being. We plan our life, set goals and work hard to accomplish them and boom, something happens that takes you in a completely different direction.
For awhile we feel sorry for ourselves and wonder why this is happening. However if you have a strong inner drive with purpose and passion, you will soon see the silver lining in that seemingly misfortune. ” Every adversity, every failure, every heartbreak, carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.” Napoleon Hill
With guidance, perseverance, and faith you will rise above. Stay true to being YOU!
You must jump into the unknown, for it is there that the answers to your search will reveal themselves.

“If your not living your life on the edge, your taking up way too much room.” Bob Proctor
Wow, when I first heard that statement, it was so powerful that it rocked my world!
I thought to myself, could I have that much faith? Could I be so bold and start doing the things that I really desire? Could I live the life that I dream about? Well the first thing I had to do is say YES! To risk playing it safe and go for it. To get uncomfortable is something I have been doing, however this year I want to step it up. I decided that 2018 is going to be the year that I really step into my greatness. I am working on a song about awakening the spirit within, which I know is going to be a world wide hit. I just booked a trip to India to celebrate the grand opening of a school for orphaned children and homeless women, in which I donated a large sum of money to and am leaving for Australia at the end of the month to host a playshop. I am also going to California in February for another one. This is just the beginning of the most exiting and fabulous journey!
So my question to you is, what are you going to do to step out and live on your edge? Are you ready to live your best life? Are you ready to step into your greatness? It is inside of you! All you have to do is say YES!
I could never have done this alone. I had coaches there to support me and still do. So let’s talk about YOU! Isn’t it time you took the next step to the edge? Let’s talk, I am here to assist. NOW, is your time!!!
“Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.” William Shakespeare
Our doubts are like a tunnel or black hole that gets deeper and darker as you continually put your attention on them. When I have a desire or am working on a project, I am full of excitement and enthusiasm about creating it. But then I might encounter a snag or some resistance that keeps it from moving forward. Do I doubt the desire or do I doubt my ability to achieve it? I must put more energy and attention on the desire than I do on the doubts. People might tell me it can’t be done, or you don’t have the money to make that happen. I can then start believing them. Then more negative thoughts and limiting beliefs start popping into my mind.
What I do is focus on the truth of who I am. I wouldn’t have been giving the desire if I couldn’t make it come true. Picture in your mind what it is you want. That believe of achieving it needs to get stronger then the doubts. I say thank you to those doubts. Thank you for sharing, however I choose to put my energy and focus on what it is I am creating! It feels so much better and you are on your way to making it come true!
What is it that you want? What doubts get in your way? If you need help with staying focused, let’s talk.
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.
What is holding you back from living your dreams and going out to create a magnificent life? What is stopping you from being fully engaged and moving forward?
I used to make excuses for why I wasn’t having the success that I knew I could have. I would blame others, thinking that it was someone or something outside of myself for causing my misfortunes. However in reality it was only myself that was preventing me having everything I truly wanted. I was the block! Until I understood this and was brutally honest with myself nothing would have changed. I had to Stop It!
It is so easy to make excuses for not being, doing or having what we desire. We get stuck in our own heads and all those limiting beliefs about what is preventing us from living a magnificent life. So just Stop it, and step out and live!!!

Here is a funny video that will tickle your funny bone.
The only thing that holds us back from having everything we want is not being in alignment with our essence. I know for myself, that when I’m feeling off, things will not come to me in the way I desire. When I take the time to calm my mind and resonate with the infinite source energy that is every where, in every thing, at all times I resonate at a higher level that will attract to me the abundance that is always available. When our thoughts, feelings and actions are in alignment, we vibrate in a very high frequency to attract everything we desire.
We need to get clear on what we want and stay focused on that idea. Keep the thoughts that will bring the people, circumstances and opportunities to you, get totally engaged in that thought . Feel like it’s already present. Get all your senses engaged in the idea. Then take action to attract what you want. Do this over and over and over again and eventually it will manifest in to physical form.
