Going for What YOU Want

Going for What YOU Want

We all have them: those people who tell you that for one reason or another you can’t or shouldn’t do what you dream of. Sometimes they are family. What do you do? I’ve struggled with this in some huge ways over the past 20+ years. Here are some suggestions on what you can do.

  1. Find some small things that you can be successful at that are in the category of what you are dreaming of. For example, if you want to be healthier, begin to take walks or go to a gym. And adapt healthy changes you can make in your diet.
  2. Make it a point to get around people who build you up. This can be done in person or through social media, like Facebook.
  3. Do daily affirmations daily.
  4. Set goals and begin to take steps toward them becoming reality.
  5. Tell yourself, repeatedly as needed, that you can accomplish what you are dreaming of.
  6. Take immediate action toward what you want. No matter how little, a little can go a long way at times.
  7. Find some hero’s and mentors. Someone who will direct you and support you.

Hopefully these tips will help you get started in the life you want.

She was raised in an environment where criticism was a constant factor. And as she grew up she became pessimistic and doubted that anything good would happen for her. But she made the decision to overcome the odds and become positive. She began to surround herself with positive people who spoke life into her weary body and mind. Over time her life changed. And as it changed she became a leader. And in spite of her early life, she beat the odds and changed thousands of lives as a result.
She was raised in an environment that was also critical. And as she grew up he became pessimistic and critical. She never realized that by changing her mindset and making the decision to change the outcome of her life, her life would change. Because of her mindset, her marriage fell apart, her children separated themselves from her, and she spoke words that would lead to an early death. And as a result, she passed away much too soon. Who knows what would have happened had she decided to find a better way.
You can choose to have problems or leadership building exercises. Your choice.

Can’t or Won’t?

This is from a blog I did a few years ago. But with some of the conversations I’ve had this week, it is time for a repost.

Hardest lesson to learn for anything you want to do and be successful at: moving past the “I Can’t ____” mentality! If you think you can or you think you can’t: you are right! Move past the I can’t mentality! You can do whatever you set your mind to! Get the word “can’t” out of your vocabulary. A better choice is I won’t! So maybe you are saying I can’t because I don’t know how. Well, learn! If you want to learn something bad enough you will find a way!

Since I orginally posted this back in 2014, I have

  • graduated from college with honors (my final GPA was 3.72!)
  • survived being hit by a car (and I was in school at the time),
  • started training in martial arts,
  • started connecting with the world’s best in leaders who are very directly guiding my life to the next level,
  • started walking out my faith more actively
  • starting taking risks that I never would have considered

The list could go on. But I want to make this point: I have done all this with the support only of my friends and some of my family. Mostly my friends.

How Do YOU View the World???

This is a story from my dojo. And it’s worth reposting.

We have, for the most part, the feelings we choose to have.

Please don’t be angry with me if you prefer to be tragic. I do not deny you this choice. I deny only that you have no escape.

Our feelings in the first moment are triggered by our circumstances. Happy news. Sad news. News that makes us angry. But in the second moment, and the third, our feelings are the product of our chosen perspective.

What angle of view do you choose when you examine the day that lies ahead of you and all the days that lie behind? What is your perspective? Where do you aim your eyes? What produce do you grow in the soil of your imagination and the sunshine of your life?

Jeanne Hébuterne was a 19 year-old art student in 1917 who fell deeply in love with a dashing Italian artist named Amedeo Modigliani. A year later, their daughter was born out of wedlock and the Hébuterne family was horrified. When that little girl was 2, Modigliani died. The next day Jeanne Hébuterne threw herself out a fifth-story window. She was only 22 years old.

Modigliani’s sister adopted the little girl and raised her as her own.

The girl inherited no art. She died in 1984.

What do you suppose the little girl felt as she was growing up? Did she say,

“My father was an alcoholic, drug-addicted loon who refused to marry my mother when she became pregnant and my mother did not love me enough to raise me. She killed herself the day after my father died.”

Persons who would choose this perspective, and the feelings that accompany it, always say they are being “honest and realistic.”

But is that really true?

Would this perspective be any less honest or realistic?

“My father was an artist whose paintings of my mother sell for many tens of millions of dollars. My mother was so deeply in love that she literally could not live without him. I am the product of that love.”

I do not know what the little girl chose to think, and feel, and believe.

I know only that she had a choice.

As do you.

I’m just getting started! HELP!

I’m just getting started! HELP!

What do you do when you are getting started on changing your life? Well, I’m still learning (by the way, so are the top leaders I’m connected to like Tony & Sarah Zolecki, Reggie Cochran, and Justin Prince!). What do they do (and I’ve adopted as a result of their leadership in my life) to get where they are?

DMO, BABY, DMO! But maybe you don’t know what this is? DMO is an acronym for:

  • Daily
  • Method of
  • Operations

What do you do each day? What the most successful leaders do is break it down each day to a to-do list. And their list includes these things:

  • Eating healthy!
  • Focusing on a single goal, and write it out (67% of the wealthy do this compared to 11% of poor)
  • Exercise
  • Listen to audio books
  • Maintain a to-do list
  • Call (or use messenger) and wish their friends and loved ones a happy birthday verbally.
  • Read for 30 minutes or more daily for education or career reasons
  • They are careful as to when they speak their mind. When they speak their mind: people listen!
  • Limited TV! They rarely watch trash tv (ie: reality tv)
  • Rise early and get started right on their day right away. Justin has some great tips on this by the way! Want to talk to him? Connect to me on Facebook and I’ll connect you to him.
  • Avoid toxic people, these are people who have habits that you don’t want to have. And as you do this,  you will find that the bad habits we all have will slowly (or in some cases quickly) will decrease. We are all growing. No condemnation here.
  • They don’t give up! Quitting isn’t an option! If something doesn’t work, they try another way!
  • Something I’ve noticed too: They are CONSISTENT! Tony Zolecki said on a live broadcast last night that the reason people don’t see success is because they quit! I’m doing these blogs and lives for this 100 days to become consistent. And it’s because I have not been consistent and I’m doing what it takes to change this.

All these things apply to every area of your life! Personal and professional. Are you happy, no, THRILLED  with the life you have? If yes, GREAT! If not: let’s talk!

Let’s work together and develop a life you are THRILLED with! Remember: NOTHING is impossible with God!

Connection of fear to disease!

Connection of fear to disease!

If you are reading this by connecting to my Facebook page, I have WordPress post this automatically when I post it. I am taking a few days and praying for wisdom and direction. If you want to connect to me, please send me a private message. I will receive it.

Fear can cause illness! This has been confirmed in science! It can weaken your immune system, cause cardiovascular damage, ulcers and irritable bowel syndrome, and decreased fertility.

Consequences of long-term fear can be:

  • Fatigue
  • Inflammation
  • Yellow fat accumulation (which is the dangerous type of fat)
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Clinical depression
  • Accelerated aging
  • Premature death

What can you do?

  1. Recognize that it is there, but then take steps to deal with it!
  2. Find things to be joyful about.
  3. Speak positive things and don’t allow fear to remain.
  4. Sleep!
  5. Learn to be assertive. And when people say things that upset you: tell them and don’t allow it to continue. If they continue to upset you, then you may need to make the decision to limit their contact in your live.
  6. Exercise: martial arts, yoga, walking, swimming. All these are great for coping with fear.
  7. Nutrients:
    1. vitamin b
    2. glutathione enhancer.
    3. Add magnesium
    4. folic acid
    5. Vitamin C
    6. Magnolia bark
    7. Phosphatidylserine
    8. Phytosterols
    9. Adaptogenic herbs (connect to me to find out what would help)
    10. 5-HTP
    11. L-theanine
  8. Follow a heathy diet. Consider Dr. Colbert’s Keto Zone Diet that I’ve discussed. By reducing inflammation, you are taking an additional step to being healthy which helps you be more proactive in dealing with stress and fear.

Be blessed.

The Power of One

The Power of One

I’m talking about this on my live broadcasts on Facebook this week too. So, jump on Facebook and watch them there too.

I want to share a poem today that is one of my favorites. The author is unknown.

One smile begins a friendship,

One handclasp lifts a soul,

One star can guide a ship home,

One word can frame a goal.

 

One vote can change a nation,

One sunbeam lights a room,

One candle wipes out darkness,

One laugh will conquer gloom.

 

One step must start each journey,

One word must start each prayer,

One hope will raise our spirits,

One touch can show you care.

 

One voice can speak with wisdom,

One heart can know what’s true.

One life can make a difference,

You see it’s up to you.

 

Enough said. For today.
