Last time I mentioned Quantum Physics as a method of creation and manifestation. I'm no expert, of course, and more of a Spiritual Scientist than a natural one, but as someone who enjoys knowing how and why things work I have a basic understanding.
Quantum Physics is the natural way of explaining Faith or that believing is seeing. We can speak and create or manifest occurrences into this natural realm by forming an Inner Vision. But the Inner Vision is only the beginning; we can't stop there. We have to go another step and speak The Inner Vision into the atmosphere with our words to make it reality.
We all have desires of what we want to be, do or have. They're internal - only thoughts - until we speak them. When we speak them, vibrations are released that begin to shift particles in the unseen realm around us and these particles act as Building Blocks. Business owners, entrepreneurs and highly successful individuals understand this truth even if they can't verbalize it.
Successful businesses and corporations have clear Visions, people who achieve anything have clear Visions. They see where they want to be and aren't deterred by present circumstances. Seeing themselves where they want to be empowers them to get there eventually. I've often referenced comedian and actor Jim Carrey's history of writing himself a check for $1 Million that he carried around in his pocket to support his Vision of being paid that amount. It eventually happened.
I have a love/dislike relationship with running. I love it and the benefits that come with it, but I'd rather only run five minutes and be done. My runs are three to six miles and in order to keep going beyond five minutes I have several strategies I employ. One is seeing myself in a particular location at the conclusion of each kilometer. For example, when I start out, I have a picture of the street I should be on when my app indicates I've completed one km. From there I look ahead to where I should be when I hit the second km mark. So on and so forth until finished.
This is Quantum Physics at work. It may be a simplified process, but it works to explain and to manifest Vision. I don't leave out the speaking part either. The whole time I'm running I'm telling my body: that it's loose, that it loves running, my lungs aren't troubled so my legs must do what I tell them, that it doesn't hurt and that I run 10k's daily so keep going and get it done. Also, on my Creation List, which I read at least once daily, I have a Declaration (some call them Affirmations) that I run 10k's daily. By speaking it I'm building the blocks to manifest that as reality in the future.
If you're interested in personalized help for constructing your Life Vision, a Creation List or in need of some Wisdom for success, schedule a call or book a mentoring package today. You can do, be and have anything you desire with the proper plan to make it happen.
In late Spring 2019 I drafted what I call a Creation List. It's a list of statements of what I want to manifest in my life. It's a list of focus, intention and goals - all things that keep me on track for living the life I desire.
Staying motivated and focused is serious business. It's life or death. Success or failure. That's why high-achievers or anyone who accomplishes goals regularly are in-demand speakers, teachers and authors. The Motivational & Inspirational market is booming. I'm a witness.
I created my list because I know the power of my words, and as I evaluated the progress of a particular situation the following question came to me: What are you speaking about it?
When working toward an achievement, the seed of success germinates as we completely align ourselves with the finished vision. We must see the end result of our desire and then conform our minds, words and actions to that end result. Then we harvest success after a season of consistency.
For example, since 2016 I've participated in a challenge to run 1000+ km by year end. I set a goal to run 100 km in January 2020. I broke that down into manageable parts, but got behind due to my excuse that it was too cold to run some days. A couple of days I used an indoor machine - I can't do it. Being stuck in one place isn't for me. So, to motivate myself I added a statement about running daily to my Creation List. I also starting reading the posts in my online running group several times a day.
Those strategies, in addition to not wanting to miss my goal, were the perfect motivation for me. I ended up running 9 days in a row to make the 100 km for January, which was tough, but I made it.
A few things to note here:
If you're in need of some help creating the future you desire, schedule a mentoring call or book a package. You're pregnant with possibility and potential, and it's up to you to capture the vision and align your life with the end result.
Job hunting on social media has proven fruitful for many, so if you're in need of a new opportunity, I say go for it.
Recently I had a brief exchange with this lady who'd asked for RTs on her post about seeking employment. I asked if she was willing to relocate for work and she replied, "Do you consider loaning me some money?"
I was shocked. For all she knew I'm the CEO of a huge company with various job openings, but she didn't use wisdom when responding to me. Which technically in the scheme of things doesn't mean diddly squat except ... more higher ups than ever read tweets these days because of Donald Trump and because they know the power of social media. While a lot of companies have staff that tweet, there are some big wigs that tweet for themselves. T-Mobile's CEO and Marcus Lemonis of The Profit for example.
How many people's tweets have come back to bite them? More than just the viral ones we know about. Especially when they've asked the world to RT a tweet and they've done it.
I guess I shouldn't be surprised about anything people do or say these days because we're living in this, 'my space, my voice' culture. Regardless of what's culturally popular right now, the wisdom I offer is that you play the movie forward and think through all of the possible outcomes before you think or speak. If most of the possible responses or results of your words or actions are negative, I'd table them and remain silent if you can. You don't always have to respond.
What do you think? Are we beyond basic professionalism in our society or does it still apply ... even on social media?
Don't talk about it, be about it is one of those sayings that basically means: produce something.
I was thinking over this statement tonight and here I am producing this blog post instead of doing what's on my schedule to do right now. Let me walk you through my rabbit trail of thoughts.
First, I heard the comment, "You're always telling what you're gonna do and sometimes you do it and sometimes you don't." Then the title saying popped into my head.
Third, reasoning came into play. I am always planning to do things. A lot of things because I'm hyper-creative and productive. Not artsy creative, but building businesses and making improvements type creative. Most of the time I plan to do things I do them. But other times, my partner pops up and tells me to go a different route than my original plan, and because He's my angel investor, aka The One With The Funds, I follow instructions because I want to stay in business.
Therefore, if I drop the ball on a project or cancel, there's gotta be a good reason because generally I'm a finisher. I get things done.
Also, there's nothing wrong with changing plans. That's the great thing about successful businesses. On the one hand you're structured and have systems in place, and on the other you have fluidity that keeps you market fresh. And I can say after six years in business, I have more completions and successes than drops and cancels. I'm still here.
Think about where you want to be six years from now. At the rate you're going, will your business or relationship still be around? If you need some help becoming a finisher, schedule a call or book a package and I'll help you prioritize and organize so you can finish those business and personal projects, too.
Business travel can and should be fun, and not all work. At least that's what I believe.
I was invited to speak at The 1st Women After Restoration (W.A.R.) Conference in Atlanta, GA this past weekend. I was able to feed, uplift and encourage others by sharing how I was homeless August 26, 2011 and six short years later, I'm standing in front of them proving you can be restored after losing everything.
Getting back on your feet after losing EVERYTHING doesn't happen over night, but it can happen if you get your mind right, set goals, seek and secure wise mentors and - most importantly - FOLLOW THEIR ADVICE.
I'm a proven mentor because of what I've done, and believe it ... if I can do it anyone can:
I got to experience Chicago, IL for the first time last week. It was exciting. It was a trip of quick work that allowed me to be a tourist for the majority of the visit.
On the shuttle to the airport when heading to Chicago, I sat with a curious young man who'd just begun his working career. He asked me tons of questions about my life and businesses.
By the way, asking questions is a skill that is taught in 1st grade (I know because I taught it for many years), that can improve just about any endeavor but isn't as highly valued as it should be.
He'll go far if he keeps up with that inquisitive nature. He said something that really made me stop and think. He said, "It sounds like you have an exciting life." I then had one of those revelatory moments of my life flashing before my eyes, and I realized that yes, even with some difficulties, my life is exciting. And the funny thing is, the losses that I've nursed in the back of my mind weren't included in the flash. I'm reminded of what my son said after receiving the PS4 he'd been saving for since last year, "It seemed like a long time while I was waiting, but now it doesn't seem long at all."
So, I do have an exciting life. I have made sacrifices and experienced losses, as are a part of life. But I have more blessing, joy and abundance than sorrow; and even greater still to look forward to.
How can I help you live the life of your dreams? I'm qualified - master's degree in education, I've taught PreK to adults, I'm published. More importantly, I have personal experience of building from the bottom against all odds, and creating a life and career that a 20-something recognized as exciting.
If you're ready for your next, schedule a call, select a package or book me to come speak to your group or business. All facets of success, abundance and joy are within your grasp. I'm a witness.
April 8, 2017-Virginia Beach, VA I sat on a business panel with five other entrepreneurs, coaches and authors. Everyone was most impressed with a 9-year-old entrepreneur who attended the conference for the second year in a row with his notebook and pen taking notes, and his very mature questions.
His name is Ellis and he's looking for sponsors to support his business dream. You can learn more about him on his page.
Having a mentor for various areas of your life is crucial. That's what parents are. They mentor, hopefully, and train us for adulthood. They're only given the first 20% or less of our lives to guide us in full measure, and from then on we're responsible for finding our own mentors and coaches.
I'm a mentor and I have several mentors. I LOVE to connect with experts and learn from them. One of my mentors told me at the conference this past weekend, that I'm not only mentoring and coaching because of the deep heart and personal issues I address; that I'm actually counseling. What's interesting about this is that a few people have recently suggested I return to college to get a doctorate. I've always said if I ever did get a doctorate it would be in psychology.
I love The Grow Your Dreams Conference. It's served as a launching pad for greater things for me each of the three years I've been honored as a speaker. I expect even greater next year.
If you want to be launched into your next level, you have to go where the launching pad is. Launching pads don't come to you. I'm available, and the conference has opened early registration for 2018. Don't delay. Windows of opportunity close.
I'm serious about my goals. So serious that I have three success goals that I've set a deadline to achieve.
This note that you see above is on my focus board. I see it every day and I've even begun sharing with others that these things need to be done by that time. I'm sharing because speaking it out and hearing it solidifies it in my brain, and also because I'm excited about it. We always share what we're passionate about ... it's human nature and it's a good thing.
Sharing also keeps me (us) accountable because those I share with will ask how I'm doing with my goals and I'll have to tell them, I'm on track for success or that I'm falling short. I do not like to fall short.
What are you doing to document and track your goals, and to keep yourself accountable? If you have a system in place, it's a lot easier to hit your target. I'm a witness.
If I can be of assistance to you as you work to break through the place of transition to give birth to a new season in your life, relationships or finances I'm available. Schedule a call or book a package and we'll get you on the road to that next level of success you've been wanting to reach.
