When looking in the mirror are you just looking at the reflection or are you really seeing yourself ? I never realized when I looked in the mirror I wasn’t really seeing me. It was strange the first time I looked myself in the eyes. Like as if I was staring into a strangers eyes. Instead of being in shock that I have never taken the time to do this before . I actually enjoyed what I saw. I was pleased with what I look like . I can see the happiness in my spirit. I can see the energy that people tell me I am giving off.
Look in your Eyes
That is one of the greatest gifts I have ever learned. Really look at yourself and ask yourself ,Do you love you ? Are you happy ? Do you like who you are ? Then listen to your answers and if you don’t like what the answers are then take action in your life. Step out of your box and make changes that are going to give you better results when you ask those questions.
Time to Step Out of the Box
At one point in my life I took a test and became a licensed hair stylist. So I do have knowledge on hair. I also know what I like. I haven’t had my hair cut in a real salon in years. Even then I really didn’t get what I was asking for. It seemed to be much easier to keep it long. No stress of someone messing it up. I used to hate to see people leave the salon not smiling.
Even though I know it is just hair and mine grows back fast. I have a issue with getting it cut. So I today am Stepping Out of My Box > I got reconnected with a old friend through facebook . We got to talking about life and I mentioned that I had done hair. Then it came up the his partner did hair too ! That is when I realized I had to make a move. Get over myself. Let someone cut my hair. Well it ends up that they live around the corner from me. I haven’t see John in years. It will be really exciting to see him . Just from that energy alone I know the hair cut is going to rock !
It is January 15th, 2009. How many of you have already given up on your resolutions? I know I have failed myself as well. I am no martyr. I shouldn’t have given myself goals I wasn’t ready to commit to . The fact is you can’t give up something without being ready. But when are we ever gonna be ready?
Is your resolution to cut down on coffee?
We will be ready when want better for ourselves. That is the problem a lot of us don’t think we are worth it. After spending the weekend in LA with some of the most amazing people I have ever met. And yes I met most of them. I realize that I am worth it every step of the way. I am worth eating healthy and exercising . I am worth the effort to be wealthy. Nobody is just going to hand me that life. I have to realize it is there for the taking.
I also want to say you don’t need it to be a New Year for you to make a change in your life. Just make that decision and stick to it.
I think it is truly important for you to challenge yourself . Do something you would never do . Once you do that you will see that it is not that hard to believe in yourself and accomplish your goals. No matter what your past beliefs may be , You have to understand life is a CHOICE.
Every Day Step Out of The Box
Choose in to your own life. If you can see the bight side of everything life will be a much easier road to drive. Obstacles will not be to challenging for you. You will rise to the top of any situation. Most importantly remember you deserve to be happy .
I just kicked of this year with 1000 of the most amazing people. The secrets to success in my business were put out by the top income earner of all time in the company. This years top income earner Rachel Oliver make over a million dollars in the past 12 months. You can see where I am headed. I am so grateful I will be able to share my journey with all of you. Life is out there , You have to choose in . That is the only way you are ever going to get any where.
I made a choice a long time ago I want in. Stick around and watch me rise to the top!
Be. Do. Have.
How many of you actually read books
that can benefit you ?
I will not lie I used to not be a big reader. I used to say if I am going to read a book I would have to gain something from reading it. The mistake I made was taking to much time in between reading . I realize now that I must constantly challenge myself and have the desire to grow. I have came across some prettying amazing books in the past few months. I highly recommend reading them if you want to achieve success in your life. When you are looking to achieve success it is helpful to read up how others have found success.
Books that have inspired me in 2008
- The Secret – Rhonda Byrne
- Key to Living the Law of Attraction – Jack Canfield
- How to Expand Love – Dalai Lama
- Think and Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill
- The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success -Deepak Chopra
- Secrets of the Millionaire Mind – T. Harv Eker
- Going Places – E.D. Hill
The last one I just purchased is The Law of Success – Napoleon Hill That one is a big book. 600 pages . I can’t wait to get into it.
Reading has brought a new light to my life. It helped me Step Out of My Box
What are you waiting for? Successful people don’t just use there imagination to create there success. They create goal lists. When you see it on paper it starts to become more real. I have Many lists.
- short term goal list ( in the next 3-6 months)
- Medium term goal list ( next 6-12 months)
- long term goal list ( can take up to a year or longer)
I keep these goals where I can read them everyday. As I achieve my goals I set new ones. Successful people don’t stop after achieving one goal. I use a vision board to give a image to my goals . I feel the energy of what it feels like to achieve my goals. I get myself so attached to my goals I act as if I have already achieved them.
I have learned these tools for my goals with the beyond freedom program . I am achieving more goals in my life now than I ever thought I would do in my lifetime. I love stepping out of my box!
Taking my kids to the Bahamas !
Be. Do. Have.
I watched True Life I am a addict . As I watched I realized that they are miss informing people that are addicted to drugs. I couldn’t believe it. I myself come from a home that has been exposed to rehab and addiction. I realize that they had given us the wrong information about addiction.
Is addiction a disease?
Photographer : Paul Lim
When you call something a disease it means a disorder of structure in a human. Like cancer , Aids and bacterial meningitius are good examples of disease. Drug addiction was a poor choice that spiraled out of control. I will not deny that long term abuse does have capabilities of permanent damage. But it still is a choice.
In recovery you are told how hard it is going to be . That it is going to be a struggle the rest of your life. You will always be a addict. How is that possible? How can anybody recover with negitave reinforcement? They are never informed that life is a choice everyday. That it doesn’t have to be hard. Once they are passed the detox stage they just have to create new habits. They should be told how easy it is to make a choice. It is just like waking up a deciding what clothes you are going to wear.
Once you are sober you are no longer a addict nor are you a person in recovery. That is an excuse to set yourself up for failure. They are telling you it is harder to stay sober than be a junkie. The fact of the matter is it isn’t hard at all. I know plenty of “addicts” that woke up one day and decided that they were done with that part of there lives. They are clean to this day , years later. They never look back , nor consider themselves a recovered addict. You put a label on it and you will have to live up to that label for the rest of your life.
Why would you want to start everyday with the energy that life is going to be hard and a struggle? I know that I start my day with gratitude. I have thoughts that life is good and I can create anything I want for myself. I would love to change the way they do recovery .Remind people of what life is all about. Struggle is NOT the answer!
Society likes to be able to label everything , most of them are labeled instead of cured. Stop being conditioned by society and Step out of your box! Life is there just grab it!
I was watching a show the other night about mother’s and breast feeding. For me was mind blowing. I nursed both my kids , so I am all for it! The mind blowing part was the mothers that were still nursing there 8 years old. Yes 3 rd grader.
To each his own…
The crazy thing is I used to think how gross. But who am I to judge. Just because it was something that I wouldn’t do, does it make it wrong? NO it doesn’t . A matter of fact it really I shouldn’t have a opinion of it. Like the mother put it , It is normal in there home. Who’s to say the things I do in my home are wrong. My son slept in my bed till recently . He is going on 7. Some people think having a family bed is wrong.
The point to me telling you this story is it doesn’t matter what anybody thinks of you . You need to do what is good for you and your family. There really is no rule book to being human. Yes there are laws we are supposed to follow to keep order in the world. But that doesn’t define who you are and how to live your life.
Be open to the way others live life. You might learn something.
Step out of your BOX
goodbye belly hello body
This is the year for amazing things to happen. I used 2008 as the year to learn how to use the tools of life. It has been a very fulfilled year of educating myself. I am so excited about getting to apply all the tools. I understand that in order for anything to happen I need to stay well rounded.
I have to nurture my body, mind & soul. As well as my wallet! I can be free mentally but I will never really be free until I am financially free.
This is My Life in Abundance! It is time for me to take that big step out of the box.
