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!

I don’t know anyone who is not going through some sort of challenge. I am a solo entrepreneur, and there are so many things you have to take care of in order for your business to flourish. Marketing, sales, social media management, book keeping, phone calls, emails, networking, clients, and the list goes on……
Then you have your personal life and home to manage as well. If you have anyone in your family who is struggling with a health issue or facing a dilemma like me, is taking care of an aging parent, it can feel daunting.
Some days there are so many things to take care of that the day turns into night and I haven’t had a chance to take a break. However, I know when I start to feel like it’s about to unravel, I say to myself, something BIG is Coming! Something so good that my whole world is going to change for the better!
So if you are feeling overwhelmed and being pulled in every which way, know that something BIG is coming. Just know that all the action you are taking to create something is going to come back! Massive concentrated action will produce something BIG! Stay positive!

One negative thought can send your mind on a downward spiral which will create all kinds of consequences to happen. They might be little at first but if you allow those negative thoughts to continue they build into something much larger and harder to get rid of. They like to latch on like a virus and attach and attack your thoughts so that it takes a tremendous amount of strength to combat those beasts.
Any time a negative thought creeps into my mind, I say cancel/clear and replace it with a positive thought. If it is a fearful thought that is gripping your emotions, allow it surface and invite it in to your mind. Ask yourself what is it about this fear that is keeping you locked into a negative vibration.
There are so many people that are dealing with some real life crisis. Illnesses, financial woes, loss of loved ones or anything that can bring negativity to the surface, can disrupt your peace of mind.
There are times that we are challenged to stay positive. Through pray, meditation and constructive thinking, we can overcome any obstacle. We may feel sad, hurt and pain at times, however we will prevail if we remember that this to shall pass.
There is a spiritual answer if we seek the highest good. Stay connected to the good!
If your going through a life crisis, challenge or just feeling negative, I can help! Call me, let’s talk!

What are your core values in life? As a life coach, I empower people to understand how important it is to live by their values. When you are absolutely clear on what you value, it is easy to make decisions based on your beliefs. How do you know what you value most? Well,look at the actions you take on a daily basis. What does your life look like? Your real core values will be expressed in what you do, under stress. That’s when the real you, appears. My core values are, integrity, spirituality,family, health and then career, in that order. If someone else has the same core values, however they put career first, health, family, spiritual life, and integrity, their life will look totally different. It is so important to really grasp this knowledge. If your life is a mess, go look at your values, and in what order you place them. It will explain why it isn’t working for you. So, if you want a life that is empowered, happy, and fulfilling, examine your core values, and put them in order. By rearranging and living by your highest core value first, will make all the difference. For me, it is “Do the right thing.” Integrity is a must in my life, I hope it is for you too!

I just love being around people who inspire me. People who are upbeat, positive, and responsible. People who have been through adversity, however choose to overcome their challenges. Last night, I attended my toastmasters meeting and the members are people who inspire. One woman, gave her icebreaker speech that was so touching, personal, and inspirational, that you felt like you were right there, in her story. Wow. it was so good. That’s how we connect through the heart with compassion.
Another gentleman, gave an advance speech about, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. He gave us all hand-outs on “20 Things Boys Can Do to Become Men”, by Kareem Abdul Jabbar. I learned so much about this great sports figure and man that it inspired me to want to be a better person. That’s what people who inspire, do. So, who are you associating with? Do you feel good around them or are they draining you of your vital life giving energy. See, you become who you associate with. I want to be a better person. When I am around people who are uplifting, positive, and responsible, I’m uplifted. Being around people who are being reactive, and playing the victim, is not healthy. The great thing is you can choose who you want to be around. I choose to inspire others so I hang with those same people. Choose wisely!

We all know the importance of taking care of our bodies, or at least I hope we do. Having a good workout to build up our muscles and keep strong to maintain a healthy body is so important to stay healthy. Stretching and keeping limber is also vital for our bodies health. However if you are not working out your mental muscles, you probably have weak physical ones too. It all starts with a mind that is disciplined. Building up your mental muscles is the only way you will achieve your goals. There are six mental muscles. They can be developed through practice, just like good body work out. Hiring a life coach is like a personal trainer for your mind. Some times you need a jump-start to motivate you.

All the great thinkers, theologians, scientists and philosophers, have disagreed on many subjects. However, there is one thought that they all agreed on. That is, that we become what we think about. Here is how Brian Tracy articulates it:
Aristotle said that we live in a universe governed by law and order. He said that everything that happens, happens for a specific reason, whether or not we know what that reason is.
The law of cause and effect says that, for every effect in your life, there is a specific cause. Nothing happens by accident. Success has specific causes. Happiness has specific causes. Prosperity and wealth have specific causes. Everything you do, or fail to do, has an effect or a result, positive or negative, somewhere in your life. Your job is to find out the cause-effect relationships and apply them to your own advantage.
The most important application of the law of cause and effect is this. “Thoughts are causes, and conditions are effects.”
In the Old Testament it says, “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
In the New Testament it says, “According to your faith, it is done unto you.”
If you want to change or improve any of the conditions in your life, you must change or improve your thinking. And when you change your thinking, you change your life and everything that happens to you. And there is no other way!
