My kiddo (13.9 years old) loves pasta dishes so I taught him how to make this no-recipe quick and easy baked ziti. It's so simple, and fairly inexpensive, so he can feed himself, and impress friends, for years to come.

Having more month than money is not the business. I lived that way for longer than I wanted and longer than necessary. I'm glad that I sought the wisdom I needed to break through into total provision.
Last week I spoke with a client who owes a $900 debt they can't pay immediately, but they need the service attached to the debt for work. That's a tough position to be in. I'm happy they shared the situation with me, though, because I had a simple and easy solution.
I asked, "Can you afford to send $15 a week to start paying it down? Many people will work with you when they see you putting forth consistent effort." The response was ... thinking ... then the light came on ... "I hadn't thought of that."
See. Simple and easy but they hadn't thought of that solution because they were only focused on what they didn't have. If your vision is lack-based, you'll always be behind and trying to catch up because that's exactly what LACK means. But if you enlarge your vision to focus on what you CAN do, you'll soar because you'll have received revelation of potential.

Effective communication skills work wonders in business and in relationships. When you can communicate your needs, questions, understandings and goals you can move forward and achieve new levels of success at work and home.
Miscommunication - whether verbal or through body language - creates limits in progress. Anything that limits your progress puts a cap on your potential success for increased sales, information delivery or moving to the next stage in a dating relationship.
I once witnessed a young person who rolled their eyes each time their mentor attempted to give them constructive criticism. This created an obvious block in their working relationship and limited each of their successes. Using cognitive coaching techniques I was able to bring awareness to the behavior, how it caused the mentor to respond and continued to perpetuate a cycle of failure. I'd love to help you breakthrough, too.
Using my skills as a trained and certified teacher and mentor I will assist you:

Last week I wrote about putting systems in place for small business so this week I'm tackling systems for home and relationships.
We all fall into one of the following categories:
I have systems for business and home. To give you an idea, one of the many things I do at home is wash dishes once a day as one of the last things I do before going to bed. I'm not willing to wash dishes more than once a day - holidays and special occasions are different, of course - because I have other things to do with my time. But what I need for the day is ready when I get up each morning, in addition to waking to a clean and empty sink to fill throughout. Included in this process is that if someone wants a dish that's in the sink after breakfast or lunch, it's their individual responsibility to clean it for use.
This system works in my household and everyone's privy to it. It may not work in yours, but it's now a framework you've been exposed to that will help you adopt a system for your life if you need one.
When I worked outside of the home and didn't homeschool, when we came in the door each afternoon, you put your shoes in the cubby under the washer, washed hands, backpacks were emptied and papers were sorted into two baskets - what I needed to review and homework. Snack was served and homework was completed at the kitchen table as I made dinner.
You also need systems for relationships. Whether work or personal you need to know each party's expectations, needs and desires and determine which are appropriate for you to fulfill and which you're willing to meet. For example, it's not proper for you to return to work each week after your days off and share your personal experiences with your manager. However, it's very appropriate to share your daily happenings with your spouse and family.
Just as business owners train employees, we have to train our loved ones how to treat us. Right now I'm learning my sweetheart and he's learning me. We're teaching each other how we need and want to be treated by the other and aligning our behaviors. We're communicating our expectations so that systems can be developed as we move forward. These systems won't always be the same because people change, but it's easier to adapt something that already exists than it is in these beginning stages where we're creating one process from two different entities. I'm teaching on this in greater detail in a live web event Tuesday, October 13, 2015.
I encourage you to look over your business/work, home and relationship systems this week and note any areas needing improvement. If you've already received enough information to implement change, get it done. if you need an outside pair of eyes to target a success strategy schedule a call or book a package today. I'd love to help make your life easier.
Even with free mentoring sessions, the information provided should be tailored to your individual needs.
Whatever our area of expertise, as parents, career people and entrepreneurs it's our responsibility to share our success strategies with the next generation.
My favorite form of exercise is running. Running is great for quick weight loss and maintenance and it just feels good. At the beginning of July I set a goal to be at 10-minute miles by month's end. I'm a warm-weather runner only (and when I say warm I mean hot) so I didn't begin until some time in June, and yes, 10-minute miles in four weeks is a lofty goal for someone who only exercises four months a year. It wasn't always this way. When I lived in Arizona I ran 10 months a year because the weather permitted it.
I didn't make it. I seemed to have plateaued at about 11.5 minutes per mile. Well, that's not ok with me so I began doing a little reading on running and marathon training. I found several strategies that potentially could offer me improvement, implemented a few and I'm pleased to announce that on my run Sunday, August 16, 2015 I broke 10 minutes per mile!
Look at the picture on the right. I broke 10 minutes and shaved almost 60 seconds off each mile in 2 days. If you know anything about running you know that's pretty significant.
In order to get off the plateau and begin improving as a runner I did three things:
I always get life lessons and flashbacks of teaching strategies out of re-conditioning my body to run each summer and this situation is no exception. Here are the things that stood out to me that apply to any area we want to break through in:
As a mentor, I want to you see you succeeding at the things that matter most to you. If you're a self-starter, you're probably able to take the strategies above and apply them to your life independently. If that's you, the Supernatural Success Mentee Portal is perfect for you. You get access to breakthrough strategies that'll help you achieve extraordinary promotion.
If you need a detailed plan of attack to break through in a specific area of life schedule a call or book a package right now. There's a $25 Financial Breakthrough special available for a limited time. Don't put off success any longer. Decide and then act today.
My favorite principal (boss) was Ms. McElroy. She saw potential in me, encouraged me and mentored me to successive promotions for four years. There were sometimes scenarios when she'd ask other teachers, "What would Zari do?" I was a classroom management, resource and Reading instruction expert.
There are experts in every field. Find one who's achieved the level of success you desire and learn everything you can from them. Watch this short video and share your thoughts.
As a mentor and teacher I help you identify, learn and implement strategies that promote extraordinary success. That's what I'm called to do. It's my purpose and passion. As we work and learn together your Breakthrough Toolbox gets filled up and you live out your destiny as your authentic self. It's a win-win situation.
I call the strategies supernatural, others call them life hacks. Either way, they're small, hard-hitting actions that produce multiplied results. That's my style. It always has been. When given a task I always try to find the easiest way to get to the goal I desire. Short cuts ... yes. Lack of excellence ... no.
I believe I'm this way partly because I'm a baby/last born and want everything to be fun and exciting. For example, take a look at the About page on this site. Several people asked why I didn't have a bio or something similar on this page and I told them the truth - I do not enjoy writing personal bios. Then two friends whom I respect, love and admire asked why I didn't have a bio on this page so I took that as a sign that it was time to make a correction (gotta pay attention to signs, folks. They often include opportunities).
I don't like writing personal bios which doesn't make sense because I'm a writer. A writer who gets paid to write that type of promotional copy for others no less. So, I pulled a common parenting/teaching strategy out of my toolbox and got the job done. The strategy was to write the bio from a different point of view. I wrote it as an actual biography instead of an autobiography and employed third person pov.
See that? A simple strategy that made a dreaded but necessary task not only doable, but fun. And, it's been well received. Every time I post the link to the About page on FB it gets more than 100 views and several comments. I've even received emails about the information included in my bio. That's supernatural.
Now consider this: What area of your life could you use a supernatural strategy to receive a breakthrough right now? After you've identified the area, schedule a call so you can grab hold of your promotion. Mailing listers get 50% OFF all mentoring packages booked by July 31, 2015.
We must develop, practice and maintain routines and habits that foster success in all areas of life.
