A Game-Changing Perspective Shift for Life

A Game-Changing Perspective Shift for Life

When it comes to success, you’ve probably heard many “Rags-to-Riches” stories.

But don’t you think it’s just as commendable to go from “Average-to-Extraordinary”?

The reason why is that when things are “good enough” and you’re “comfortable,” the incentive to take the risks necessary to create an exceptional life isn’t always easy to find.

But what if you aren’t here just to provide for you and your family?

What if your purpose in this world is so much bigger than about just you and those closest to you?

What if you have talents and potential deep within you, waiting and hoping to one day be unlocked?

I believe we are all here on Earth for a reason.

That reason is to Grow & Lift Others.

To Learn & Share.

That’s why I implore you: Think BIGGER.

Because when you step through your fears and into your greatness, not only can YOU create an extraordinary life…

… but you can also make a difference in so many other people’s lives.

And when you make that shift from “what’s in it for me” to “how can I serve others,” that’s the game-changer.

Until next time.

Death & Rebirth of Your Identity: The Process of Evolution

Death & Rebirth of Your Identity: The Process of Evolution

Here’s a simple question you can ask yourself to reveal your current perceived identity that you’re holding onto, which is precisely what you must let go of to advance to your next level.

Whatever goes in the blank below reflects your perceived identity:

“I will do whatever it takes to achieve my goal just don’t ask me to _____ because that’s just not me.”

E.g. in Shrek:

I will do whatever it takes to win the love of the princess just don’t ask me to open myself up to the princess because that’s just not me.

Shrek’s identity = I don’t need anybody; it’s not me with the problem, it’s the world.

E.g. in The Titanic (Rose):

I will do whatever it takes for freedom and adventure just don’t ask me to give up my millionaire husband because that’s just not me.

Rose’s identity = my mother and I can’t survive without a wealthy man to support us.

E.g. Myself:

I will do whatever it takes to achieve my goal just don’t ask me to risk embarrassing myself in front of others or look stupid because that’s just not me.

Identity = I’m smart so I am supposed to know all the answers and therefore not allowed to make mistakes.

We often form our identity to protect ourselves from a deep wound from the past.

This identity “protects” us BUT it also imprisons us.

It has got you where you are today, but it won’t won’t take you where you want to go next.

Death & Rebirth of your identity is the process of your evolution.

Until the final stage where your identity (ego) dissolves completely and you live in the true essence of who you are.

Create a great day today.

Conscious Language Tips

Conscious Language Tips

Coming off a very powerful two-day Six Figure Mentor and Digital Experts Academy event in New Jersey, I want to share with you a tidbit of what we discussed.

Conscious Language tips

  • Stop saying “Have to” and start saying “Get to” – You don’t “have” to do anything
  • Instead of saying “But” say “And” – “But” is like an eraser; it negates everything you said before it
  • Consider your use of words like “Unbelievable, insane, crazy” – these words imply what you’re experiencing is unusual for you. Re-frame to “This is how my life operates now.”
  • When you receive a compliment or are acknowledged by somebody, don’t deflect it. Instead, say: “Thank you, I fully receive that.” (If you don’t feel worthy to fully receive a simple compliment, what does that say about your worth to receive other gifts of life?).
  • If you feel afraid to interrupt or frequently say “sorry” after you speak up, this implies a conscious/subconscious belief of: “I don’t trust that what I contributed was in good time or valuable.” Take some time to look within and investigate why you may consciously or subconsciously believe this. When you see yourself as somebody of worth, the rest of the world will follow suit.

Other Tidbits

  • Allow life to happen and step out of the way!
  • Take action after you receive intuitive thought
  • The universe sends you only what you can handle
  • Any part of you you don’t love will be your thorn
  • The world isn’t messed up; it’s how we respond to it
  • Respond with anger and we perpetuate what we dislike
  • Respond with love and we can change the world
  • If you act from a place of “life is bad” you won’t get great results
  • Mastery takes patience
  • Confusion means you’re learning // processing

Until next time.

Want to Change the World? React with Love

Want to Change the World? React with Love

There once lived a nomadic tribe in the remotest areas of Africa.

If a tribe member was caught stealing or inflicting harm on others (or their property), the tribe formed a circle around the perp.

Then, starting with the chief, each person shared positive things about the “wrong-doer.”

Sometimes, they shared something positive about the person’s character, skills or talents.

Other times they reminded the person of the positive and caring behaviour they had exhibited in the past.

How do you think the wrong-doer responded?

How would you would respond?

The reason people do “bad” things is because they’re either (1) ignorant of what their actions truly mean and/or (2) they’re hurting badly on the inside (and often aren’t consciously aware of it).

Reacting with anger or hatred only adds fuel to the fire.

Reacting with love and compassion is the only way forward.​​​​​​

Until next time.

The Two Culprits of Procrastination

The Two Culprits of Procrastination

There are two things you get to look at if you’re struggling with procrastination.

(1) Clarity of Vision

(2) Sense of Urgency

Without a clear and compelling vision don’t expect to be pulled toward your goals.

Without a sense of urgency to realize that vision you also can’t expect to be pulled toward your goals.

And if your goals aren’t pulling you, achieving them is like pushing a boulder up a mountain.

Until next time.
