Do You Feel The Urge To Be Always Be Right?

careful-what-you-argue-for

There are so many amazing people in the world with such wonderful gifts, but most of them get stuck in the trap of being right all the time.

Can you relate?

Do you know some of these people?

Have you been this person from time to time on your journey?

I know I can and I have…

The thing to understand here about always being right, is that in that scenario in order for you to be right, someone else has to be wrong.

Is it really worth it to make someone else wrong just so you can be right?

What if it was just another point of view that the person had?

Do you need to make them wrong for having it?

Probably not…

Are their cases where the desire to be right takes over so much that you get to the pace of arguing about it?

There is a saying out in the world that goes something like this…

“You can be Right, or you can be Rich”

Which would you choose?

All of the rich people that I have met on my journey have escaped for the need to be right.

In fact, they are at a place where they are wrong most of the time….

But when they get it right, it pays off big time!

So next time you find the urge to be write when someone else is wrong…

Think about it.

What you argue for you will always get to keep.

Is it really worth it to be right?

or can you just accept the other persons information as just another interesting point of view.

Try it out today.

See how it will transform your world.

Be careful what you argue for.

Keep your dreams alive!

Do You Feel Like You’re A Mess In Your Business And Life?

mess-mission

Most people at one point in their journey on this planet has a sense that everything in their life is a mess.

Can you relate? Those times when things just didn’t go as you planned. You felt totally out of control. Nothing seem to end up the way you wanted, desired, or envisioned it for yourself.

Well you are not alone. Everyone has some type of mess in their life. Whether it is big or small, we all know what it is like to have some kind of mess in our life.

The areas of your life where messes usually show up are…

  1. Relationships
  2. Health
  3. Money

What if the stuff that is messed up in these areas of your life could be just the thing you need to support the mission that you are on during this journey on earth.

Now, I don’t believe that we experience anything in our life that is not there to be used to enable us to move forward on our mission.

There are no coincidences. There are no mistakes. Just things that happen.

And in fact, they are all based on the choices you made anyway!

So here is what you can do with the messes in your life.

After you have gone through them, you know have the opportunity to be able to help others that have not yet experienced it or are going through it to have less of a mess along their journey.

I don’t suggest that you share your mess with a lot of people while you are going through it. Just share it with people who can take it and who you feel can help you along the way.

But when you are on the other side of your mess, now is the time to step up and lead others through their messes that are just like yours.

How awesome can that be?

What kind of contribution can you be to others around you if you share how you overcame and when through your messes?

So if you are struggling in your business right now, and wondering how you could improve the value of what you have available to people to find you and know that you can help them?

You can do it in 3 Simple Steps…

  1. Grab a pen and paper and write down all of the messes that you have gone through in each of the areas above for your business and life.
  2. Pick one of them that you know would be the most value to others to help them out in their business and life.
  3. Package up your messes that you have already gone through.

And once you are done, the put it out there.

Tell the world about what you have so they know what you can offer them.

Your messes are over.

There may be more to come.

It’s your time now to get your past messes package and out there for the world to see.

What are you waiting for?

Someone is out there waiting for you.

It’s your time to show up now.

Just Frickin’ Getter DONE!

Let It Flow

Are You Working Really Hard To Have Something Come Into Your Life But It Just Never Shows Up?

let-it-flow

Most people are working so hard on their business and life that it is actually holding them back from achieving their vision, goals, and dreams for it.

Can you imagine that?

Well it’s absolutely true.

Now when you were younger, you were probably told that you have to work hard to get ahead in life.

And to some extent that it true. Hard work is part of the equation for having success in what you do in your life and business.

But what about the people who seem to just flow through life and have everything come to them effortlessly?

Do you think that they work hard?

Or could there be another piece to the puzzle that you just are not getting yet…

Anything that you want to do in your life to change something from what it currently is to what you want it to become take effort.

Sometimes depending on where you are currently at and the gap between it and where you want to go is so huge that it takes a lot of work.

And some of it may even be hard.

But there is something else that you need to have to make it all work out in the end.

That is a clear vision of what your dream and future life looks like.

The picture that is clear in your mind of who you will become.

“Do you have that picture for yourself?”

If not, then grab yourself a piece of paper right now and envision yourself in the future of the life of your dreams.

Take your pen and start to write down what you see, what you hear, what you smell, and most importantly what you feel.

Now take that and look at what you are doing at this very moment and check to see if it is something that will take you there.

The secret to know if it is or not is this…

Does the energy of what you are doing right now match the energy of what you feel when you envision your future life?

If not, then choose to do something different.

If it is, then go for it full out.

Take massive action…

Let it Flow… Let it Flow… Let it Flow!

This will move you into the flow that you see every truly successful person around you experiencing.

It’s like magic.

Your life of your dreams will show up in no time.

So hard work isn’t the only thing you need to do to achieve the life of your dreams.

Start today to measure the feeling of what you are doing against your dream life of the future.

Choose for you and who you be.

Keep your dreams alive!

Who You Be Is What You Do

Does It Always Seem Like You Are Struggling To Get What You Want?

BeingVsDoing_230x150_m

Are you working so hard at achieving your dreams and desires, but they just don’t seem to show up?

You’re not alone. Most people struggle with this exact same thing.

It keeps you stuck in the crap of where you currently are in your life.

How much fun is that?

Well here’s the thing…

There are two sides to your life.

There are the IN-Side and the OUT-Side.

As you were growing up, you were told and taught to focus on the OUT-Side of your life.

You were told to do this… don’t do that… you can’t do that… stop doing that…

It was a life of do.do.do…. dodo!

Can you relate?

How has that worked out for you thus far on your journey?

Now don’t get me wrong… Life is about taking action and getting things done, but if that is the only thing you are focused on, then you might end up doing things that just never needed to be done in the first place.

Let’s look at the IN-Side.

If you grew up in any type of spiritual community or with parents that played those self-help tapes and went to seminars… then you had some exposure to the IN-Side of who you BE.

It is through this Knowing of who you BE and having it as the guiding principles of your life, that keeps you on track, and in focus of all your dreams and desires you have ever had and envisioned for your life. It is the driver behind your Dream Life, your Business Vision, and what you are truly put on this planet to accomplish.

How awesome is that?

Your very own internal compass that helps you make the best choices for you based on who you BE.

So if we don’t have this IN-Side.. OUT-Side connection happening a few things happen.

  1. If we are all OUT-Side living, we keep doing the do and creating the dodo in our life that spirals out of control and keeps us stuck in a place that we don’t even realize that we are in. We are not even sure if we are doing what we really need to do, and can easily be distracted by others to do what they want us to do instead of supporting ourselves. In this state you have no idea what you really desire and dream of for your life, but even if you did, you probably don’t believe that it is possible for you.
  2. If you are all IN-Side living, you keep in a state of fantasy rather than reality. You constantly see in your mind and soul what is possible for your life, but you never make any choices and take any action to make your dreams and desires into reality. You are stuck in a place of unconsciousness living that holds you back from what is possible for you in your life.
  3. Is the Ying & Yang balance between IN and OUT – Side living. It is both BEING and DOING. This is the optimal place of living our your life fully and having everything you have always wanted, dreamed of and desired.

So here’s how things really work so you can stop the struggle and have success…

You need to shift from DODO or a BEBE to a BEDOBEDOBEDO… Yes that’s right.

Here’s how it works:

First you BE, then you CHOOSE, then you DO!

Then you repeat the cycle.

Who you BE is what you DO

It’s really that simple…. but if you have been stuck in one of the other states for a while now, breaking the habit and choosing this for your life may take some time, discipline and effort.

But know this… on the other side of all that, lies the life of your dreams. It is so worth it.

Go out and try it today.

See how you truly be and what you can choose to do and make it happen.

You’ll be glad you did.

Keep your dreams alive!

The Power Of Feedback

0

Do you know what it takes to get crystal clear on exactly what you need to do to make more money and have a bigger impact on your life and the world?

feedback

It may be simpler than you think.

But it’s something that more people completely overlook.

The more people Showing Up BIG in the world each and every day, the better the world will be.

Do you agree?

There is a huge misconception that most people have about what it took for successful people to get there.

They think that success comes to them instantly. Like an overnight success. They don’t realize what it really took for them to get there.

In my journey of building a business from a dream and vision I had for the future, we became a 6 year over night success when we landed our first major customer…

When we had finally arrived. But looking back, there were a lot of things we tried and failed at along the way to get there. We just did what ever it took to make it happen.

What I learned from this was…

“On the path to Success, Failure is the only option that will get you there!”

But here most people live in the delusion that successful people have never failed and just have been doing everything right all the time.

Well it’s time to Burst That Bubble. The only thing that is different between successful people and the people who just struggle through life is:

“The people who are successful do what the people who are not successful are not willing to do!”

Yep, it’s as simple as that.

When two people are presented with the exact same opportunity and possibility for themselves, that one will take off and have huge success and the other will just stay stuck in the same place.

Which would you rather choose?

The other thing that successful people do on your path to success is that they ask people for their feedback on what they are doing, creating, and being.

There is one thing that so many people who I have come to know… is that the Fear of Getting Negative Feedback Holds Them Back.

They end up just not even asking. But if you just asked for some feedback on what you are doing it would help you out to move forward faster towards your dreams and keeping you stuck.

So decide today to get out of your own way and choose to do what most others are not willing to do.

Choose to ask for feedback and receive it in a way that can support your dreams and desires for the future in your life.

Change your focus from what you fear to what is possible!

Are you ready to step up and Live BIG in Your Life?

Do it NOW!

Start Today!

Keep your dreams alive!

Get Real

0

Are you ready to wake up and get real with yourself?

get-real

One of the reasons that people don’t achieve the life of their dreams is they are not being honest with themselves.

Not being honest with about where they are in their life and the choices that they made that got them there.

Can you relate?

I spoke a bit about this topic in a recent post 100% Responsibility.

You see… Most people would rather Complain, Blame, or Feel Really Awful instead of looking inside of themselves and seeing how they are creating the reality of their life.

If you know of people in your life that have do this, I am sure you can relate.

But, In order to transform your current state into one of Fulfillment, Abundance, Joy, and Happiness… your first step is to Get Real with yourself and be totally and Completely Honest about Who you are and Where you are at in this moment in your journey of life.

And let’s face it, we can all use a good dose of Get REAL in our lives from time to time.

Ask yourself these questions:

  1. Is this really what I want for my life?
  2. Is what I am doing, how I am living and being, truly serving me in my life?

Go ahead and ask them to yourself. Don’t worry about the answers… just open yourself up enough to really take a look at what is the truth of your reality in your life RIGHT NOW!

If you don’t take this step and get real with who you are right now, you will continue to make the choices and be stuck in your life as it is forever. Stuck in the spiral and matrix of your life without any hope of getting out.

So start to be honest and get real now so that you can jump forward into the life you have always dreamed of and desired.

You deserve it.

Are you ready?

Take the leap and build up your wings on the way down.

It’s go time!

Your time to show up BIG in the world and live your dreams.

Start NOW!

Keep your dreams alive!

Who To Be With

0

Who do you spend your time with?

who-to-be-with

Did you know…

The people around you and those that you surround yourself with have a massive influence on who you will be and become in your life.

Most people are not even thinking about the effect that people have on them as they let them into their lives every day.

If you want to receive more in all that you do, you need to get around people who already have what you want and desire for your life and business.

It is said that you are the average of the 5 people that you spend the most time with.

In all the key areas of your life including:

Relationships
Finances
Business

Everything!

Let’s do a little exercise.

Take some inventory for a moment.

Grab a pen and a piece of paper.

Ok… Take a look at your life as it is today, right now at this moment.

List out the 5 people that you spend the most time with.

Grab your pen and write them down.

Now for each person you have written down, list out their

Income
Relationship Status
Success In their Business
Health

Now review what you have written down and ask yourself this question:

Is my situation in all these areas the average of these peoples?

I bet that it is?

There is no other way you can be.

Most people have no idea the influence that the people they spend time with have on their lives.

They are busy doing the following:

Living In Fear
Stuck In Less than Ideal Situations
Struggling Financially
or Simply Holding Back from showing up BIG in their lives.

Can you relate?

I know I can. I have been there, and sometimes I still go back to visit from time to time.

But it’s ok.

You can choose another path.

You have already taken the first step in creating an awareness around the fact that this is true for your life.

And now with that new awareness, you can make new choices and move forward with amazing energy.

How awesome is that?

Now that you are ready to step it up in your business and life and Show Up BIG every day…

It is time for you to take a leap of faith and build some new connections and relationships.

Think of one person that you admire and respect that has achieved something that you are desiring to have and be in your life.

Got someone in mind? Maybe you have a few of these people.

Write them down.

Now pick one and reach out to them.

Introduce yourself.

Tell them what you admire about them.

Start building a relationship.

With this step, you will start to move yourself away from the negative people in your life that are keeping you stuck and towards the people that you know deep down in side will allow you to move forward towards the life you have always dreamed about.

Go build a new relationship today.

Keep your dreams alive!

Know More To Make More

0

Do you know where you are at in your business right now?

001_08

Most people have no idea where things are at with their business.

Do you know why?

Well, it’s because of the fact that, when it comes to their business, most people don’t know or look at their numbers!

But… In order to make more you must first become aware of exactly where you are right now.

Otherwise, you get stuck in the same old same old of what you have always done.

How has that been working out for you?

Now, you don’t have to get upset, worried, or even angry when it comes to not knowing about your numbers in your business.

Most of the people in the world are in just the same boat as you.

What you do need to do, is get to know where you are at with your numbers in order to figure out where you want to go and how you are going to get there.

Once you have created that foundation and platform for yourself and your finances, you will be in a place to spring board into the business that can support the life you have always dreamed of and desire.

How does it get any better than that?

More of that life for me please…

Most people avoid looking at their numbers when it comes to their business and they do everything in their power to avoid it.

So where is the energy going in this kind of situation?

Most certainly it is not be used to move you forward towards your vision of a great future you have for yourself.

It is sucking all that energy of hope, joy, ease, and action and putting it towards where you are currently stuck.

Can you relate?

You are probably feeling some forms of guilt, shame, or even denial when it comes to finances in your life. RIGHT?

Don’t worry. It doesn’t have to be that way. All it takes is a simple shift. A shift that will totally transform your business and how you look at your numbers in the future.

And you can start that shift today right now.

How awesome is that?

In order to make that shift, you need to make a choice. Choose to take a look at your numbers. Here is how you can do it to start.

1. List out all of your accounts where you have money in.
2. List out all of your accounts where you currently have debt.
3. List out all of the sources of income that you have coming in on a regular basis.

Write these down on a piece of paper.

Now you have a starting point. You have moved into the awareness of where you are at.

Before you panic and start to freak out, which is totally normal if you have not been having any awareness over your numbers and finances for a long time in your life, and take a few deep breaths.

It is much better to be aware of where you are at and conscious of your current reality.

And because now that you know what you know. You can consciously make choices and take actions that can alter your reality and bend it towards the vision you have of your dream business and life in the future.

So stop being afraid of your numbers and embrace where you are at today.

Then take that energy and use it as fuel to propel you forward towards what you desire most in your life.

You can do it.

Now that you know more you can make more of everything in your life.

How does it get any better than that?

Asking For Permission

0

Do you ask for permission for everything you do in your business and life?

forgiveness-permission-get-off-the-pew

Most people spend their life asking for permission to do things and at the same time, worrying about whether they are doing what is right.

I can bet that these people are not really living the life that they want and desire.

So what is holding them back?

Why do most people go through life trying to do the right thing all the time.

Why are most people always feeling they need permission to do things?

If you have ever been a parent to a child or been a child yourself 🙂 , then you know that from a very young ask, you were taught that you had to ask for permission if you wanted something or wanted to do something. As a parent, you thought this was what you needed to do to raise your kid. Heck, that’s what your parents did and you turned out alright, so why not do just the same thing as a parent yourself, right? As a kid, you didn’t know any better and learned that this asking for permission stuff usually got what you wanted, when done the right way of course 🙂

The permission game continues when we go to school. We have to ask for permission for everything from speaking to going to the washroom. How much fun is that? How do you think that had an effect on what you believe you have to do to get something that you want?

This continued until you left school and were out on your own.

You thought, great, I’m free now. I can do whatever I want whenever I want. No more asking for permission.

That lasted long enough for you to get a job, have a relationship, and start your family. The permission thing started right back up for you again.

I have to tell you, it is one of the major things that is keeping you back in life from moving boldly ahead towards your desires and dreams.

Asking for permission!

If you are stuck in the asking for permission spiral in your life, always trying to do the right thing, then maybe it’s time for you to adopt a new philosophy and do something else.

Here is what I learned while in Graduate School back in the late 1990s.

Instead of asking for permission for everything you want…

Go and do what you want and then ask for forgiveness later!

That it’s it.

Ask For Forgiveness.

This philosophy and shift in my thinking allowed me to boldly step forward asking for forgiveness along the way and create a multi-million dollar technology business.

So, what are the things that are holding you back that you are waiting for permission to do?

What is it going to take for you to step forward and do it, and ask for forgiveness later?

Most of the time, the asking for forgiveness never even has to be done.

So try it out.

Take that step, that action that will move you closer to the life of your dreams and desires.

And ask for forgiveness later if you have to.

To your massive success!

Failure Is The Only Option

0

Could Failure NOT Being An Option Be Keeping You From Your Business Success??

No Failure Zone

Most people spend their life in Fear Of Failing!

Can you relate?

Do you know some of these people?

Have you worked in this way before?

I know that I have, and let me tell you…

It didn’t really get me any where except going around in circles being stuck with where I was.

How does it get any better than that?

You see, most of us are brought up to do what we are told, follow the rules, don’t do anything wrong and FAILURE IS NOT A OPTION!

Really, how the heck can we go through life and live out our dreams if that is the way we have to be.

When you look around and study the great leader, inventors, and creators of this time and the past, you will find that they all did the opposite of what they were told, what people said they should do, and the failed a lot!

In fact, I have come to believe that on the path to success and the life of your dreams…

Failure is the ONLY OPTION!

How has failure played a role in your life and business?

Are you afraid of it?

Does it worry you?

Does it keep you up at night?

Well let me tell you, it doesn’t have to be that way. You don’t have to feel like failure is something that you did wrong.

One of the greatest inventors in history, Thomas Edison, was asked a question about failure at one point in his career.

They asked him about the 10,000+ times that he failed in his journey to invent the light bulb.

To which he replied, I just learned 10,000 ways how not to create one.

It is all a matter of perspective when it comes to failure.

And also the choice that you make when you stuff shows up around things that don’t go just as planned.

On the journey towards the life of your dreams, you will come across many times where things don’t work out the way you wanted and there will be people there to let you know that that is the reason why you should stop continuing to pursue your vision of the future.

When those things come up, I suggest the following:

1. Take a deep breath and remind yourself of what your vision and dream life is. Feel what it will be like once you are there, and let that feeling be the driving force behind you continuing to move forward.

2. Make the choice to keep moving forward. Remember your decision that you made to start on this journey in the first place. Let that fuel you to continue on the journey.

3. Ask powerful questions like, What’s right about this situation that I am not seeing here? Or What else is possible?

4. Take massive action to move you forward and push past the so called failure that is right in front of you.

Failure is only what you choose for it to be. If it wasn’t they everyone would see the same failures as everyone else.

So the next time something doesn’t go exactly as planned and people around you are dragging your down, or maybe even that voice in your head starts barking at you… Remember your dreams and vision and choose to continue on the journey.

You’ll be glad that you did.

To your massive success!
