Do You Set a Goal For Your Failures?

Wednesday, January 6th, 2016

Hello Friends!

When you set your goals for 2016 did you include any goal for your failures?

I know it sounds crazy and while you’d probably not set a goal to fail, the thought brings up an intriguing question…

Do you have a fear of failure so you only set goals that you know you can achieve? Fear of failure is normal. I mean, come on, we were all raised with the belief that the opposite of success is failure. But, that’s not true! The opposite of success is not failure; the opposite of success is not trying or giving up. That’s failure.

When asked about failure at Google, Peter Norvig, research director said, “Failure is inevitable. We just try to fail faster.”

That’s such a great perspective! If you set a goal to fail more often and faster, there’s a good chance that the impact of a potential failure won’t be that great and you will have built up a strong resilience muscle.

When you ask successful people about failure, they will tell you that they see failure as feedback to change course of direction.

Here’s what you do next time you experience failure: First, make a note about what you learned from the failure, get excited about what you just learned and move forward quickly. Second, see yourself as an awesome risk taker and an unstoppable force! You just proved it by experiencing failure and moving forward fast.

The context to come from is: My life is supposed to have failures!

Giving myself permission to fail unlocked self-induced shackles and rocketed my next level of living. Last year I rented out my Florida home and traveled all over Europe and America to write my book, Slay the Dragon and to work with my Life Matters Teams. This year I sold that Florida home and moved 3000 miles west to the California coast. I experiened faliures and disappointment with these two goals. But with my new perspective of failure, it didn’t matter how many challenges I experienced or if I failed with either of those goals…

LIFE WAS CALLING and I chose to answer!

What about you?

Are you willing to stretch what’s possible ~ even logical ~ for you this year? That stretch into the illogical is where I invite you to go! Look at your new year’s goals and add a few more that are improbable, illogical and will most likely fail. You just never know what seems improbably or illogical to you today (with your current mindset) is just what the future you knows is reality and logical for you tomorrow.

The ONLY way to usher in a new level of results is to usher in a new level of thinking. Take the cap off your thinking. Give yourself permission to get comfortable with failure and success will get comfortable with you.

Richest blessings,

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,

The 3 Mind-Sets You Need to Create the Extraordinary

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

We’ve been talking about the 3 Mind-Sets you can “take on” to create the extraordinary!

Yesterday I taught the first one.
Mind-Set #1: Have a distinction between your difficult circumstances and YOU.

When you see your difficult circumstances as OUTSIDE of yourself, you access a unique power. It’s the power of WHO YOU REALLY ARE! You are NOT your circumstances. You are Creative Genius designed to handle and overcome the circumstances.

How did you do with that one yesterday? Do you see and understand how vital it is to SEE yourself as an over comer? A conqueror, designed to BE great.

Today, let’s talk about the next one…
Mind-Set #2: Prosperity and Abundance is Normal.

You always get what you expect in life. Your Beliefs are your reality. When you adopt the Mind-Set that Prosperity and Abundance is normal, it will be.

There’s always more than enough.

Look at nature how lavish and abundant it is. In its natural state, Nature has all it needs to grow and flourish. A seed attracts to itself ALL the nutrients it needs to come to full fruition. This is all done in the invisible and with ease!

It’s the same with you and me. You have all you need, right now. There’s always enough ~ more than enough.

So, what if you can’t pay your rent this month? It sure doesn’t FEEL like abundance and prosperity is your birth right.

Well, here’s some tough love…

You have been programmed to believe struggle is normal. You are currently wired to think that abundance and prosperity is for OTHERS, not you.

This is a lie.

It’s going to take something for you to retrain your brain and raise your consciousness to the level of this Universal Truth: “Abundance and Prosperity is My Birthright.” But it is possible to shift. And it is SO worth the efforts to shift.

Just like the fish who swim in the ocean and wonder where the water is… Your Abundance and Prosperity is ALL AROUND YOU!

Ask God to open the eyes of your heart so you can see His Lavish Love and Rich Blessings all around you.

You’ll SEE it when you BELIEVE it!

Stop wimping out on yourself. When you begin to go into lack thinking, STOP YOURSELF!

Speak the mantra, “Abundance, opportunity, ideas and prosperity are reserved for ME!”

Believe that and you will begin seeing it.

In the 1960’s when the cake mix was first invented you only needed to add water. It was a complete and utter bomb. Women of the 1960’s thought it was “too easy” to make a delicious cake by just adding water.

So, they took the cake mix off the shelf and changed the recipe to add egg, oil and water. That seemed to be acceptable as it turned into a big success.

I share this story with you to ask, “Where are you wanting to make your success harder than it has to be?”

When you take on the mind-set “Abundance and Prosperity is normal,” you will begin to SEE a new path for you…

In the context of achieving your goals, you’ll realize opportunities are plentiful. Ideas are yours for the taking. Take them. Act on them.

Be bold. Ask for what you want. Trust that IT IS DONE. And now, obey inspired action. DO what you are inspired to do.

You know that ‘nudge’ that comes to you. Maybe it’s a whisper telling you to call that prospect. It may be a desire to take a road trip and go visit someone. Maybe it’s a desire to finally say, “I love you!” It could be an idea that comes to you so vividly.

Trust these nudges! And respond with velocity. These nudges help you to see and notice all the Abundance and Prosperity around you.

Your Beliefs Are Your Reality. When you take on the “Mind-Set” that Abundance and Prosperity is normal for you… It will be.

Always Creating,
