Why do we settle?
Is it because we don’t feel like we can get that ‘dream’ life we fantasize about? Is it because of fear? Feeling not good enough?
Let’s start fresh!
If you had a magic wand and could have anything you wanted, what would it be?
If you had a wish that would 100% come true, what would it be?
If there was no chance of ‘failure,’ what would you choose?
Every day we can start fresh. Just because you are at a job you don’t love or in a situation you know you are not supposed to be in, does not mean that is where you will stay. Your past does not equal your future.
The greatest gift we have is the power of choice. We can choose, right now, to start on that path that honors our authenticity, our passion, our purpose.
It comes down to the power of choice. Stepping into our power and making a true decision. A decision to...
Confidence can be built!
One exercise you can do: Think of a moment that you felt the most confident. If you have a hard time thinking about it within yourself, think of the most confident person you know. Imagine that person right in front of you in their most confident state. Imagine them clearly. How do they stand? How do they speak? How do they interact with others? How do they tackle challenges? Whoever it is, whether it is you at some moment or someone else, imagine yourself stepping into that person at their peak confident state. Really feel their emotions overcome your body and you merge with them.
What are they feeling? How do they see the world? Now exaggerate the confidence they have. See it growing even more. Since you are in them, you feel exactly what they feel. Allow yourself to do this. Once you can feel these emotions, really tap into them. Now that you are fully in that state of confidence, ask yourself how you would handle...
Simply put...this is your day! Own it!
Make It Happen!
What is it that you want your future to be like? Dream it up, create a plan, and go for it. Believe in yourself. Know that your life is yours to decide. You have the power to make it happen.
Ask yourself these question:
1. "If you had a magic wand and could create any future, what would it be?"
2. "Who do I need to become to bring that future to a reality?"
3. "Why do I want to accomplish this dream (make it compelling)?
Other questions to consider, but typically come when we are clear with where we want to be and who we need to become are:
4. "What skills do I need to know?"
5. "Who do I need to know?"
6. How can I best gain the skills, network, and development I will need?
If you do more than just breeze by those questions, but truly let them sink into your heart and create a plan, you can also create your future.
Live life fully! Go all in! Create the future you really want, not the one...
It is so easy to cruise through life. I heard a phrase that said, "If it not 'hell yes,' it should be a 'no.'" The same can go with our lives. If it is not great or the best, then it should either grow into becoming the best or make room for the greatness that can be ours.
Good is not good, it can be the enemy of having a fulfilled life. It is your life, choose greatness! Choose to be fulfilled!
Make It Happen!
You can decide now to take charge of your day and live your day the way YOU decide! One thing to never forget: you have the POWER to choose.
Today, don't let life control you. Take charge of your day. Take charge of your life.
Create a life you wake up excited for!
Make It Happen!
So many people that say they have a ‘good’ life still don’t feel alive. It is so easy to cruise through life and ‘accept’ whatever comes in, especially when it is ‘good.’
“Good is the enemy of great.” – James Collins
First, it is important to DECIDE to live a full life. DECIDE that you are no longer okay barely getting by and being ‘good.’ While it is a blessing to be good and it is important to live a life of gratitude, that gratitude needs to be paired with a self-love that is not stuck in the cycle of being unfulfilled.
When we are grateful for the life we have and we are willing to make DECISIONS to create a life we truly want, one where we are actually excited to wake up in the morning, we can begin to take back our power. We can DECIDE to say ‘no’ to the good things, and only say ‘yes’ to the best things...
Perspective is so important. Learn to shift your understanding of failure as an immovable definition of who you are. Instead, look at it as the path to success. Be proud that you took action. If you do "fail," fail forward. It is in doing that we become. It is in becoming that we win. If you fail, count yourself blessed, you are in the company of the most successful people in the world!
When we take our eyes off of the prize and focus on the obstacles, we tend to go off track. This thought came to mind a while back: "Where you look is where you go." If you look back in disappointment, you go back in disappointment.
In looking back, stay focused on the future. Look back to learn how to become better for the future. The equation is straight-forward...
The more we do, the more we learn. The more we learn and apply it, the more we become. The more we become, the more we attract success.
Keep your eyes on the prize! Stay focused and you will eventually get there. Go get em! Make it happen!
All of the greatest influencers in the world have made mistakes and will continue to. It is the pathway to greatness. We either try something new and make mistakes or, we stay in the same place ‘comfortably’ and don’t move forward.
“A person who never makes a mistake will work for the one who does.” – John Maxwell
Even though avoiding mistakes may seem to feel better, the reality is, it is worse to not grow and to not live up to our potential. When we aren’t true to the potential within us, we aren’t fully true to ourselves. We can feel it deep down inside. Mistakes bring growth. Growth brings happiness.
“Everything you are going through is preparing you for what you asked for.”
I am not saying go out and deliberately make mistakes. I am saying go out and take ACTION. If you happen to make a mistake, perfect. Learn from it. Grow...
