Create Your Best 2013! Step #6: Craft An Empowering Vision

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

Dear Friend and Entrepreneur;

We’ve been talking about my 7 Steps to Create Your Best 2013. In today’s post I’m teaching on Step #6. But first, here’s a review of the first 5 Steps…

Step #1: Know What You Really Want! (Clarity Is Power)
Step #2: Create An Empowering Self-View! (You Can Never “Out-Succeed” Your Self-View)
Step #3: Know “Whose” You Are! (You Are Divinely Guided)
Step #4: Obey Inspired Action! (Beliefs Drive Behavior)
Step #5: Powerfully Deal With Setbacks (The Power of Perception)
And today’s post is on Step #6: Craft an Empowering Vision (The brain thinks in pictures)

I’ve trained on the analogy of using a GPS and how crafting a vision is just like punching in an address in your GPS system.

This step gives your brain the final destination to MOVE toward and arrive at. Without this vision the brain is not told what to do or where to go and you will stay stuck and immobile.
When you know the address of where you want to go and you punch it into your GPS (Global Positioning System), what happens? Your GPS says, “Calculating” and it comes up with ALL of the steps you need to take to GET TO YOUR DESIRED DESTINATION!

Does the GPS give you all the steps at once? No, it gives you only the first step. But, this computer software already KNOWS all of the steps you need to take to get to where you want to go. Your brain works the same way. Your brain is software that you can program to give you the path you need to take to get to where you want to go.
The first step is to ‘program your brain’. Tell it where you want to go and it will ‘calculate your exact path’.

Remember in Step 1 we talked about CLARITY is Power! When you know what you want you give your brain direction. And, since the brain thinks in pictures (now words) you need to craft a vision, a picture of what this goal looks like and feels like.

When you give your brain this picture, the Vision you give it permission to get started with intention! That’s the brain’s job! It creates!
Think of a seed…

A seed, when planted in the ground, will attract ALL it needs to come to fruition. Now, if you were to plant a carrot seed in the ground today and you tended to it, what would you do on, let’s say, day 10 if you didn’t see a sprout come up out of the ground? Would you dig up that seed and wonder what’s wrong with it? No! You would KNOW the seed it growing, you just can’t see the progress ~ YET! You KNOW that the seed attracts all it needs ~ nutrients, energy, sunlight ~ to grow and come into fruition.

So, do the same thing with your Goals! Plant them in your mind with a clear compelling vision. Cultivate and tend to this seed by meditating over your vision and that seed will attract ALL it needs to come into full fruition.

And that, my friend, is the POWER you have in your brain. Craft an empowering vision and put that ‘address’ into your GPS (your brain) and your goal, just like a seed, will attract all it needs to be realized in the physical realm. YOU WILL HAVE your Goal.

Make it a great day of Crafting Your Empowering Vision!

Always Creating,

Create Your Best 2013! Step #5: Powerfully Deal With Setbacks

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

Dear Friend and Entrepreneur;

We’ve been talking about my 7 Steps to Create Your Best 2013.

Step #1: Know What You Really Want! (Clarity Is Power)
Step #2: Create An Empowering Self-View! (You Can Never “Out-Succeed” Your Self-View)
Step #3: Know “Whose” You Are! (You Are Divinely Guided)
Step #4: Obey Inspired Action! (Beliefs drive behaviors.)

In today’s post, it’s time for Step #5: Powerfully Deal With Setbacks

Now that you know what you want, have an empowering self-view, realize you are divinely guided and you are IN ACTION, you will have to deal with inevitable bumps in the road.

These bumps look like rejection, setbacks and break downs; And, they are inevitable. They are needed on your road to success for they are opportunities to get you back on course.

On your journey of success, you will be off course more than you are on course.

Take the example of an airplane taking off from LAX and going to Oahu, Hawaii. The pilot knows that the plane will be off course for most of the journey and her job is to continually realign the plane’s course.

When she continually realigns the planes course (without drama and judgment) she will land the plane in the exact destination she programmed it to land.

Just like an airline pilot, your job is to continually realign yourself and get back on course.

The problem occurs when you create too much drama around your setbacks and mistakes. Some people allow the inevitable setbacks to give them a reason to quit!

Stop giving these setbacks so much power.

Manage your emotions around the setbacks and see them as quiet alarms waking you up to realign your behaviors and thoughts to GET BACK ON COURSE.

Let’s say you’re giving a presentation to an interested prospect and you are talking too much and completely over selling your product or service.

Take on the characteristics of a pilot and say, “Hmmm, interesting. I notice I am off course. I am over selling and talking too much. What is the cause of this and what can I do to get back on course?”

No judgement! Just truth.

Remember, you’re going to give really bad presentations before you give really good ones!

When you train your thoughts to keep your reaction neutral, you GIVE YOUR SELF POWER to make the necessary adjustments that will help you deal with setbacks and break downs powerfully.
Manage your emotions with a simple sentence, “Hmmm, interesting; I notice that I speak the limiting behavior and attach no meaning to it! It’s just what’s so. It’s just what there is to deal with.

When you neutralize the charge, you are powerful to make the needed adjustment and go forward toward your goal.

Again, stop giving your break downs so much power! Practice being neutral toward them. Break downs, mistakes and limitations are just quiet alarms that help you to GET YOU BACK ON COURSE!

Listen. Take notice. And make the necessary adjustments.

This is the journey of success!

Have fun being the pilot of your success story today.

We’ll pick it up next time with Step #6. Until then, make it a miraculous day!

Create Your Best 2013! Step #4: Obey Inspired Action

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

Dear Friend and Entrepreneur;

We’ve been talking about my 7 Steps to Create Your Best 2013.

In my last 3 posts we talked about:

Step #1: Know What You Really Want!

(Clarity Is Power)

Step #2: Create An Empowering Self-View!

(You Can Never “Out-Succeed” Your Self-View)

Step #3: Know “Whose” You Are!

(You Are Divinely Guided)

How ‘ya doing with the first 3 steps?

Do you have a clear vision of your goal and does that goal

represent your highest values?

Who are you creating your self to be today?

More than a conquerer! Whole and complete!

Healthy and fit! Financially free!

Your beliefs are your reality and beliefs DRIVE behavior…

That’s Step #4: Obey Inspired Action! (Beliefs Drive Behaviors)

Remember the story I told you in Step #1 about how I

created my Mastermind Retreats?

Well, here’s the rest of the story…

Knowing that beliefs drive behavior, as soon as I began

replacing all the limiting beliefs with more empowering ones,

I began receiving instructions of what to do. I started seeing

opportunities that I never saw before. I began behaving in

bold and unreasonable ways! I was in action like never before.

Every time I spoke my new empowering belief, I would be

inspired to call a new prospect (or several).

Every time I visualized my desires, I would connect with a vendor,

webmaster or a printer who would give me an amazing deal to get

my marketing done.

Every time I spoke my intention, “I love giving Mastermind Retreats

in exotic cities all over the world,” an opportunity would present itself

to move the goal forward. It was miraculous!

This is the power of our thoughts…

Thoughts Are Things!

This is the power of our words and intentions…

Your Word Creates Your World!

This is the power of our visions…

Visions create the emotions that drive behavior!

And, BEHAVIORS get things done. ACTION gets results.

Within 9 months I had a “sold-out” Mastermind Retreat in

Paris, France! Since that first amazing Retreat, I’ve hosted

11 other Mastermind Retreat in exotic cities like Prague,

Sydney, Bali, Florence, Bangkok, Maui, Costa Rica and

more!

You really can create your best 2013!

It all begins with your decision to do so. Make a commitment

to yourself today that you WILL follow through with each of

these 7 Steps to Create Your Best 2013 and Your Best Life!

It all continues with daily questions from them 7 Steps:

Who are you creating yourself to be today?

And how is that image shifting your behaviors?

What empowering belief are you speaking aloud today?

And how are those words moving you into ACTION?

What Vision are you holding in your mind?

And how is that ‘movie’ and the emotions it creates inspiring

you to be in action?

Step #4: Obey Inspired Action! (Beliefs drive behaviors.)

“See” you in the next post where I will be training on Step #5.

Until then,

Be blessed!

Create Your Best 2013! Step #3: Know Whose You Are

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Dear Friend and Entrepreneur;

We’ve been talking about the 7 Steps to Create Your Best 2013!

In my last 2 posts we talked about:

Step #1: Know What You Really Want (Clarity Is Power)

Step #2: Create An Empowering Self-View

Today, in Step #3, we’ll talk about the power of knowing WHOSE you are…

Step # 3: Know “Whose” You Are

You are a Divine Creation made by A Creator.

You are designed, wired and equipped with all you need to live an abundant life!

For 9 months, while in your mother’s womb, you were provided with all you need

to develop into who you are. You didn’t have to concern yourself with HOW you

were going to develop. You didn’t fret or worry about HOW your embryonic cells

were going to call forth all the nutrients needed to grow, you just developed!

Well, nothing has changed…

Right now, while reading this post, you are still divinely guided.

Consider how your heart beats. Your heart beats approximately 72 times per minute.

This pumping causes the blood to carry all the vital materials which your body needs

to function. Are you telling your heart to beat?

Consider how your lungs work. The air inside our lungs moves in and out because

of the movement of the diaphragm as well as the ribs and chest cavity. Are you telling your

diaphragm to move?

Consider the 98.6 standard human body temperature. This temperature strikes a perfect

balance to ward off dangerous fungi that would make us sick. Are you telling your body

to maintain this 98.6 temperature?

There is a Divine Force that is guiding you, providing for you, pulling for your growth

and expansion.

When you acknowledge this Force, you expand its power.

Look back in your life and NOTICE where you have been ‘taken care of’.

Make a list of all the areas of your life where you are divinely guided.

Tap into the powerful Truth of Step #3: Know “Whose” You Are (You are Divinely Guided).

In the next post, we’ll pick it up with Step #4. Until then, make it a great and miraculous day!

Create Your Best 2013! Step #2: The Power of Your Self-View

Friday, January 4th, 2013

Dear Friend and Entrepreneur!

We’ve been talking about my 7 Steps to Creating Your

Best 2013. In our last post I talked about Step #1:

Knowing What You Want!

I asked you to identify your top Values by asking yourself:

1. What lights you up?

2. What is your burning desire?

3. What matters most to you?

These values help you identify what you really want in

life. Step #1 is: Identify What You Want

Now that you’ve planted the seed in knowing what you

want, you cultivate that seed.

Step #2: Expand Your Self-View to Achieve What

You Want.

I’ve got a question for you: Who has the most

influence on you? Who is the one person who is

with you in every break down and break through?

It’s yourself!

You can never “out-succeed” your Self-View.

Everything that was created in your life came from

the view you have of yourself.

If you see yourself as bold, driven and successful,

your behaviors will match this self-view.

If you see yourself as incapable, scared and small,

your behaviors will match this self-view.

Your behaviors are driven by your Self-View!

And the reality of every success story is the person

who experienced success did not FEEL successful

until they decided to be.

Your self-view is a choice.

So, how do you create an empowering Self-View?

Your Self-View gets created through the meaning you

give to what happens in your life. The circumstances y

ou’ve experienced have programmed you to see yourself

as that circumstance. But… You are not your circumstances!

You are not divorce, foreclosure or financial challenge.

You are not bankruptcy, DUI conviction, health challenge

or getting fired. Do not collapse “what happened” with

“who you are”. YOU are not your circumstances.

Circumstances are just what happened.

They are just what there is to deal with.

Stop giving them so much power. When you train

yourself to distinguish the difference between what

happened to you and you, you are free to create

whatever you want because you are free to create

an empowering Self-View NO MATTER THE CIRCUMSTANCES!

Create the self-view you’ll need to overcome those

circumstances! Who you really are is pure love, infinite

possibility, more than a conqueror, infinite wisdom,

abundance and prosperity.

You have all you need to create success right now just

the way your life is and just the way your life is not.

Your access to creating your best 2013 is to expand

your “Self-View!”

Self-View drives behaviors… and Self-View is a choice.

Who do you choose to BE today?

Until next time,
