Finding Your "Why"

Finding Your “Why”

Putting strong intention behind your goals and dreams.

 

One of the first things I have my clients do when they are setting goals or they have a big dream that they want to bring to life is to have them do the “Finding Your “Why”” exercise.

There's a couple of things this does for a person.

 

  1. It helps the person discover if this is indeed their goal. You might say, “Who else s goal would it be?” Well sometimes people will set a goal trying to please someone in their life like a parent, significant other, children, or even society. If you dig deep and can't find the passion behind the goal, it might not be yours.

  2. It also can help you dig deep and find the true meaning behind why this goal is important to you. The deeper you dig, the more emotion and passion you will put behind the goal giving it intention and power.

  3. Having a well thought out “Why” behind each goal gives you something to...

Limitations

mindset self improvement Jan 02, 2021
Do You Believe You Set Your Own Limitations?
Whatever your personal limitations are.
Whether it's your age, your money situation, where you live, the state of the economy, or health.
Do you believe you have control over these limitations or do you believe you're a victim of them?
Some of you might get angry about this comment but you do have control.
The truth is that we set our own limitations. If we believe that limitation to be true then it will be. If however, we can look at the limitation we perceive to be there and find a way to disprove it, create a new belief, and live by that new belief, we can create better life circumstances for ourselves.
The first step is to accept that you absolutely created the reality you live in now.
The most exciting thing is, you can change that reality to reflect something much better.
It's the Open Jar Concept.
If you put a bunch of fleas in a jar that is 5 inches tall and put a lid on that jar the fleas will be trained, over...

3 Reasons You Should Use a Vision Board to Put Power Behind Your Goals

Why You Should Use a Vision Board to Put Power Behind Your Goals

 

I absolutely love vision boards! I make one every year and I find it not just fun but also a creative and powerful practice.

I love looking at it every day and being able to visualize each goal and feel the positive feelings that come with the journey to reaching each one of them. This is why I do this every year and sometimes even more than once a year. Because it works. It adds that extra boost, and focus you need to keep moving forward even when things might get hard.

 

I want to go over a few reasons why this works, it's not magic, although it feels that way. It's just a fun way to make things happen so it doesn't feel like work:)

 

  1. Creating a vision board makes you commit to specific goals – In order to create the creative masterpiece that you will use to inspire you to take action you have to really be specific about the goals and find creative ways to convey them on paper or digitally....

4 Steps To Help Re-Frame Any Situation

One of the most transformational things I learned to do was changing my perspective on the situations in my life.

The funny thing was, that I did it purely out of survival and didn't even realize it too much until it became a habit. I really would focus on trying to figure out why things, kinda crappy things, kept happening to me. I knew I needed to make a shift from this.

You see, I was dealing with so many stressful things at once that I had no choice to look at them differently. The only other choice I had was to spiral into panic and depression and this was unacceptable because I had 3 young children depending on me and me only.

I could go into deeply what I was dealing with but it doesn't really matter too much. People deal with stressful situations differently so something very stressful for me might be considered a walk in the park to you. What is important is feeling good with the place you are right now and to learn from those crappy situations as much as you can and...
