So in yesterday’s post I asked, “Could it be possible to program your cells to HEALTH? Is it possible to program your brain to WEALTH? And what is the process to doing so?”
Emphatically, the answer is YES! I’ve spent 7 years watching the results of this belief completely transform my clients businesses and lives ~ through a simple, yet profound 4-step system you can literally retrain the brain and program yourself to achieve your goals.
I’ll share the system with you through a story…
Nearly 8 years ago my husband of 18 years told me he didn’t want to be married anymore. You can imagine how this devastating news shook me to the core. After months of suffering, I chose to accept it and made a conscious decision to view it as a gift.
I share that part of my life with you for you to REALIZE that it is often the times when you are most lost in your life that you are most open to your true calling. In physics it’s called, “Zero Point Energy.” The best way I can explain it is when you feel like you have NOTHING, that’s when you have EVERYTHING. When nothing is there; no label; no identify, then everything is present and anything is possible!
One morning, in a state of zero point energy, I’m trying to make sense of this new found freedom I’ve been give. I take out a blank sheet of paper and write at the top of the page, “What lights me up?” The question brought a tremendous confidence and, almost instantly, I write down 3 things.
1.) Luxury Travel ~ Experiencing the beauty of this world in exotic cities around the globe in first class style.
2.) Stimulation Conversation ~ Sharing and discussing what’s possible with like-minded people and creating a deep connection together.
3.) Making a Difference ~ Having a truly profound impact on another person that radically transforms their beliefs and creates a new realm of possibility for them and their community.
As soon as I had written down those 3 things, an image bounced of the page and I shouted, “That’s Rich Life Mastermind Retreats!” I smiled for the first time in weeks and I knew to my core this was what I truly wanted to do with my life. I felt inspired to make this dream happen and, even though I was scared, I got online and booked a ticket to Paris, France where I knew the first Retreat would take place.
I spent 3 glorious days in Paris creating the entire Mastermind Retreat in that long weekend. I booked the hotel rooms, the meeting rooms. I reserved the restaurants and excursions. I spoke with owners of Cooking Schools and Art Studios and planned innovative and unique events for my group. I even met the Tenor of the Paris Opera House and reserved him to serenade us one of the evenings. The vision was so clear. I saw us walking out of our hotel to a stretch limo waiting for us. As we step inside the limo the tenor begins belting out an aria from a famous Opera. And as we drive along the Champs Elysees, the Rue de Rivoli, the Eifel Tower, touring Paris in a limousine while sipping on champagne, we are serenaded in 5 different languages from the amazing and talented Tenor!
Three days later I flew home, having put $15,000 on my credit card and an entire Mastermind Retreat reserved and ready to go 9 months from that weekend. I had no clients, website or even business cards. But I had something even more powerful than that. I had DESIRE! A burning DESIRE to launch this new avenue in my business model: Mastermind Retreats and Coaching Programs. Within 3 months I had a solid business plan, marketing campaign, website, business cards and brochures. And just one week after that, the phone rang…
I pick up the phone and hear a lovely voice on the other end say, “My name is Lilja Prieur and I am from Namibia, South Africa. I bought your book, “Conquer Fear!” and am calling to find out if you take on International Coaching Clients.”
“Yes, I do.” I reply. “Tell me about yourself and what you want to create.”
She proceeds to tell me she wants to write a book about her experience of escaping Apartheid from Namibia in the hopes that it will inspire millions of people to believe in their dreams. And then she says, “I escaped Apartheid and was given a free education and am now living in… Paris, France!”
I nearly dropped the phone! She was living in the same city where my first Mastermind Retreat was being held! Well, Lilja did register for that first Retreat and has been to 7 of the 11 Mastermind Retreats since that first one.
Lilja’s call was a confirmation to me. It was God’s way of telling me I was on the right track and that BOLDNESS GETS REWARDED! Nine months after setting the goal and crafting the vision of the Paris Mastermind Retreat, I had 8 amazing entrepreneurs in Paris for my very first Rich Life Mastermind Retreat!
Now, can you identify what my 4-Step System for Achieving Your Goals is from that story? Let’s identify the 4 Steps…
Step #1: Know What You REALLY Want. Listen to Your Core Values, Passions and Desires.
Step #2: Craft a Compelling Vision, Intentions, Mantras and Meditate on them NOW.
Step #3: Obey Inspired Action! Act on the step you are told to take NOW.
Step #4: Share Yourself and Your Vision and Enroll Others in that Vision.
In the next four posts I’ll go through each step thoroughly and give you the research behind each step that proves you can retrain the brain and program yourself to achieve your goals and core desires.
