Are Your Goals Too Small?

Tuesday, February 16th, 2016

Several years ago, I heard of a radio station giving away several free trips. Anywhere the winners wanted to go, they could go.

Just stop here for a minute and ask yourself, if you won a free round trip ticket, where would chose to go?…

These winners could choose Prague and enjoy a carriage ride through Old Town, or Sydney and bungie jump from the Sydney bridge or see a ballet in the Sydney Opera House. They could choose Stockholm and tour the famous Vasa, the ship that capsized and sank in 1628 and spent 333 years on the bottom of the sea! (Don’t even get me started on magical Paris or the enchanting city of Florence!)

Shockingly, over ninety percent of the winners chose destinations that were within 500 miles of their home!

Why is that? Why do most people settle. They settle for mediocrity in their relationships, their jobs, their friendships, and their own lives.

There is so much to see, experience, and attract in this vast world and yet most people have extremely low-level expectations and uninspiring goals. Is that you? Are your goals for this month to: make all the bills, have enough for the kids’ soccer, ballet, or tuition, or is your goal to be able to pay off credit cards and other debt.

While these goals are valid and may bring a certain level of satisfaction. They are stifling to the human spirit. In a universe that is infinite with a Creator who is omniscient, small goals and low-level expectations are BORING and uninspiring to that part of you that is infinite.

When you give yourself permission to entertain a bigger vision for yourself, you open up portals of possibility that would never have existed before.

When I was gifted a car at our company convention last September, I was elated with this generous thank you gift. And, you bet, I was surprised. But, before the event, I decided not to purchase a return airline ticket. I gave myself permission to entertain the idea ~ the slight possibility ~ that I would be gifted a car at the convention and didn’t need a return flight as I would be driving my new car home!

The cool thing about giving yourself permission to dream big, is the inevitable space you create of “even more”… The “even more” that was created for me occurred when I was about to drive my new car from California back home to Florida. I was having lunch with a client in Newport Beach, California when my cell phone rang. It was my realtor telling me my Florida home sold as a cash deal and the buyers wanted to know if I could be out in 3 weeks!

I was startled by the news and wondered how I was going to drive my car across the country and move out of my home AND find a new home all in 3 weeks.

My client shook me out of my startled state when he said, “Lisa, you’ve been talking about moving to California for years. Looks like you’re getting your vision handed to you on a silver platter.”

He was right. With my Florida home sold and my new car already in California, I was being given the “even more” which was my longtime dream of living in Southern California.

I called a realtor that day and booked an appointment. Within a few hours I found a beautiful place on the water to rent in Newport Beach; signed the deal, put down the deposit, and was on my way to California living!

Life will give you exactly what you expect. And, when you give yourself permission to dream big, you open up portals of possibility that will delight and inspire you!

One of my favorite Bible versus is in Ephesians where it says, God is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or imagine. He’s just waiting for you to ASK and to IMAGINE!

If you want to see and experience more exciting, interesting, and expansive opportunity, give yourself permission to raise your level of expectations.

Goal Setting With a Twist

Wednesday, January 6th, 2016

Happy New Year!

As we close out 2015 and launch into a new year, I invite you to

apply a new way of setting goals and New Year’s resolutions.

I trust you’ll find this helpful and inspiring!

Step 1: Choose to be complete with 2015 for all that it was and

for all that it wasn’t. Decide to accept and appreciate the lessons

learned, the goals achieved or not achieved and BE complete with

the year… Now you have a blank canvas to create upon.

Step 2: Get present to your values and what matters most to you.

With those images in your mind, stand in the final day of 2016

(yes, I said 2016) from the future; the final day of 2016; look back

at the year… What are you most proud of? What happened in 2016

that you are most thrilled about?

Write down the most delicious accomplishment in each of these areas:






Step 3: How will your life be better because these goals and dreams

were realized? How will others benefit from these goals being


How will you celebrate the reality of these goals being realized?

Write that down and craft a movie of you celebrating the success of

these goals really happening! (It’s most beneficial to really milk

this part.

Get wild and creative with your movie script of what your life is

like now that these goals and dreams are a reality for you!)

Step 4: Read this movie script and watch it in your imagination

EVERY DAY in 2016; starting on January 1st and continuing EVERY

DAY for 365 Days. This part of the exercise is the most important

habit you can create to ensure that living these dreams and goals


Please understand that the ONLY thing getting in the way of you

achieving your goals is YOU and how your brain is wired.

In order to change all that you must change the wiring of your

brain; also called transforming your mindset. That’s what you

are doing every time you “watch this movie” in your mind and

FEEL the reality of your new life.

The subconscious doesn’t know the difference between what’s

real and what’s made up. It will just take on your made up movie

as REALITY and start to literally give you the GENIUS ideas,

connections, and way of being that you’ll need to accomplish

your goals and dreams.

So, do the work! Do the internal work needed set your brain

in the direction of achieving. If you do this internal work and

obey the promptings your brain will start to give you, it is

inevitable that you will live the life you desire.

If you need more help with this process, read my new book,

Wheels Up Tour City #18 Newport Beach! ~ Are You A Genius?

Friday, April 18th, 2014

Hello Friends!

I love long drives. I get into a state of introspection and enjoy the clarity it brings. Today, I’m driving to Newport Beach. Last week it was a seven hour drive to San Francisco. On that drive I had time to ponder, “What is genius?”

Genius is a practiced skill or thought.

It’s a skill or thought that’s brought to the level of mastery. Genius is not even necessarily good or bad. You could be a genius at poverty! You’ve practiced it for so long you’ve mastered it!
You could be a genius at drama. You keep repeating the same patterns and become a genius at it. I had a client once say to me, “My life is a soap opera and I’m the star!”

Most of you are masters at blocking your own success! Your beliefs are not aligned with your desires, so your subconscious mind creates sabotage. You’ve repeated this pattern so many times, you’ve become a genius at sabotage.

Wow! That is the power of a focused thought. Genius can come from it.

How ‘ya doing with that?

Do you have a proclivity toward negative thinking or limiting habits?

The first step in breaking through this is being aware of your patterns and then choosing a new habit (a new thought). Your breakthrough will come when you diligently focus on your new thought and you DO THE WORK to retrain the brain until that is your new habitual pattern and you become genius at it!

Genius at making and keeping profits.
Genius at loving yourself and others.
Genius at crafting a vision for your Team to champion.
Genius at holding (and feeling) the vision of your best life.
Genius at bringing out the best in others…

Genius is a training of the mind. It’s a level of mastery that comes from a focused thought or skill.

Are you willing to do the work to bring your skills, your ideas, your thoughts to Genius?

I’m not sure about you, but that excites me!

Feel free to leave a comment or an intention to break through a limiting habit or belief and train your brain to mastery!

I’ll check in from Newport Beach and San Diego next week!
Enjoy your Good Friday and have a Happy Easter!

In Love and Appreciation,
Lisa Jimenez M.Ed.

Wheels Up Tour City #17 Carmel, CA. “The head and heart of business”

Monday, April 14th, 2014

Dear Friend;

It may be the majestic views of the California coast, spending the weekend in stimulating conversation with college friends, or maybe it’s the wine tasting experience in lovely Carmel, but something has made me extra introspective this weekend and it’s great!

As my college friends and I were sharing our most profound lessons in life, I got present to one of mine:

“Never let success go to your head and never let failure go to your heart.”

That philosophy has served me well when I launched my business and felt so much fear and insecurity. At the beginning stages I was way too cautious. I cared too much what people said and how I looked…. until I didn’t.

Today, I see this same process in my coaching clients. They allow fear to keep them small… until they don’t.

Their limiting beliefs cause them to sabotage… until it doesn’t.

They are timid… until they aren’t.

Their sales presentations are scattered and wordy… until they aren’t.

Are you getting the point here?

Before you’re really great, you’re just okay. And, before you’re just okay, you may be, well, horrible!

Bottom line, manage your expectation of success and allow for your learning curve.

Never let failure go to your heart…

The other part of that philosophy is just as profound.

Never let success go to your head.

Is it time for you to rev up your passion for your craft again?

Where can you stimulate growth? What new idea, formula, process, or invention could you bring to your business model?

Creating success is just the beginning. Expanding that success; enhancing the possibilities, mastering your craft is where the real work begins. But, that’s where all the deliciousness of life is!

How big can you take your business? How creative can you make that path? How deep and significant can your create those relationships?

In other words… How good will you let it get?

Give yourself permission to be bold, wild, and unreasonable with your possibilities. You are created to grow and experience limitless possibilities.

Even if you don’t act on some (or most) of your outlandish ideas, the process of thinking about them and formulating the possibilities will keep you sharp, interesting and passionate!

(BTW, success is a bi-product of being sharp, interesting and passionate.)

In Love and Appreciation,

(You’re an entrepreneur! Lucky YOU!)

Retrain the Brain and Attract Success (Tap Into the RAS)

Sunday, April 13th, 2014

You have an amazing “system” in your brain called

“The reticular activating system” (RAS). The RAS is a set

connected nuclei located in your brain stem and works as

a phenomenal filtering system. The RAS is like a gate

keeper who allows only the things they are told to allow

past the gate. Here’s what that has to do with you…

In every moment there are over 2 million bits of sensory

information bombarding your sensory data system.

Can you imagine what life would be like if you were aware

of all these bits of action and information?

You’d go insane!

So, you have a RAS to help you filter all this stimulation.

Your RAS lets in and processes about 5 – 9 bits of

information in any given moment.

So, I’ve got a question for you…

What do you think DECIDES which 5 – 9 bits of

information pass the gate keeper (the RAS)?


level of vibration those most active thoughts create.)

If you want to “Attract More Success” then program your

THOUGHTS to represent the RESULTS you want!

The brain thinks in pictures, not words. so picture what

you want.

Remember, your RAS filters out everything that doesn’t

support your most prevalent THOUGHTS and causes

you to SEE what matches your most common thoughts.

Picture this…

Let’s say we were having a conversation and I began to

tell you about my White Maserati with Licorice Red

Interior and you began picturing my White Maserati

with Licorice Red Interior; what type of car do you think

you’d begin seeing on your drive home?

Yes! You guessed it. You’d begin noticing White Maserati

with Licorice Red Interior!

This is your RAS at work…

Whatever you THINK about, your RAS goes to work to


Just imagine the implications of this!

What would your RESULTS look like if you began

programming your RAS to see and attract Leaders for

your business opportunity, the ideal clients, your dream

home, fun and exciting travel!

Your RAS will filter out EVERYTHING ELSE and

cause you to notice only the things, the people

and the opportunities that you have trained it to see.

Give the RAS and spin today! Train yourself and

your THINKING. Plant your desired thoughts and

pictures in your RAS and watch what you begin to


What a gift. We are truly magnificently made!

You have the power to make it a miraculous day;

by focusing your thoughts and feelings on good,

beauty, love, laughter, peace, and JOY!

Your attention to these thoughts and feelings will

bring the people, ideas, and experiences of those

very thoughts and feelings. Watch what shows up!

I want the best for you!
