Everybody has a daily thing they do. For me it is get up a 6 am . Before I even get out of bed I visualize what the day is going to look like. Then I have my usual routine I got through. I like to call them my morning chores. My kids have them as well. That is all fine and dandy . But do you realize that your daily routine is who you are . For me I know that my daily routines are positive and have integrity in them . I know that what I do everyday reflects a great result.
Are your daily routines getting you anywhere ?
What is the first thing you do in the morning?
Consider what you daily routine . Are you finding success in what you are doing ? Or is your life at a stand still ? What changes to your routine can you make that will benifit you ? Is your life worth changing?
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.
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.

Reading has brought a new light to my life. It helped me Step Out of My Box
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
Are you ready to live your life on purpose? Most people think they are. They don’t realize that they are just going through the motions. There is more to life then waking up everyday and going to work . Life wasn’t meant to live on your 2 week vacation a year.
Live on Purpose
I double dog dare you to take action in your life. Live your life with purpose. Don’t wake up everyday and live a routine. That is not what we are hear for. We sure aren’t hear to work hard so others benefit and you don’t. There is plenty of resources out there for all of us to live life in abundance. The ones that are already living that way are living there live on purpose. They aren’t waiting for the winning lotto ticket. They aren’t using there past to hinder their future.
Why are you?
Fresh out of the chair 12/10/08
I set this goal in June of 2008. I as part of the beyond freedom program I set goals for myself. There are three sets. Short , Medium , And Long term goals. My short term are meant to take action immediately . So my goals are to go to the Summit Conference in the Bahamas. Did that!
What a bonus for a goal .
The second is my tattoo. I wanted to get this as a thank you to my husband. For the past 9 years he has taken care of our family . We never went hungry and always had what we needed. I am not sure if he will ever truly understand how much I Love Him!
So My third goal is a house. I know that is right around the corner. I am excited as it all falls into place. If I say it is gonna happen I make it happen.
Why do people feel so obligated to please others and make themselves unhappy. I see this happening everyday. People complain all the time about the things they do for other people. I wish people would realize
Please Yourself … Don’t Feel You Have To Please Others
For years I did things in my life to make other people happy. I went to family functions to make my mother happy. Called my grandmothers to please my parents. I didn’t enjoy what I was doing. I did it out of family obligation. Most people think that you have a family obligation you have to fulfill.
I have learned that the only obligation I have is with myself . I am obligated to take care of myself. To make sure I keep all toxic things and people out of my life. That includes family. I am grateful to my parents for the birth of my life. I have excepted my life experiences with them as learning tools for my future. But at no time at this point in my life do I think I need to keep them in my life if it brings me down.
The fact in the matter is I haven’t spoke to my father since September 2007. As a result I had room for the growth I was looking for. I truly believe I couldn’t have achieved the things in the past year that I have if I had him in my life. It is sad to think but it is true. People can hold you back from your true potential. You’d never realize it because of you feeling obligated and never letting go. I would love to be able to share in my growth with my father. If I ever went back into a relationship with him it would be under my terms. That is how I feel about any of the relationships I have let go of.
When decieding to focus on personal growth, not everybody is supportive. They claim they are. When it comes down to it they treat you as if you are the same person. They haven’t changed how they treat you. It makes it hard to be around them because you aren’t the same person. You don’t care to be treated in that manner anymore. Don’t feel bad to let go of them. If they want to keep you in their life they will have no choice but to change the way they treat you.
Life is a choice . We get to choose every little aspect of it. From your desired wealth , to your desired weight. What do you choose for yourself ?
I choose Freedom . With the Beyond Freedom Program .
When achieving greatness we need to remember there are several different area’s of ourselves. We just can’t achieve our goals in one area of our lives.
We Need to Focus on Every Aspect of Ourselves.
We are capable of mental, physical , spiritual and emotional growth. They are all different. They all work together. When people choose to do personal development they almost completely forget about the physical aspect of it.
In order to have a healthy mind it is very important to have a healthy body. It is very important that you are aware of what you put into your body. You physical health is vital to your mental heath . If we fill our bodies with fast food and junk all the time the body spends most of the time trying to figure out what to do with it. Then the mind doesn’t have time to work on the mental and spiritual parts.
So I feel that in order to progress with your personal development you need to reevaluate you life style.
Do I eat healthy?
Do I exercise on a regular basis?
When was the last time I had a physical?
After you have asked yourself these questions you need to figure out a plan [goal] to make these changes in your life. More importantly how are you going to stick with it. Are you ready and committed to yourself. Are you ready to make a choice to change your every way of being.
Once you have gotten this area under control you can grow . You are know on your way to personal development. You have made a commitment to yourself. That is a big aspect in the mental part. You have now taken over your mind. You control your eating and your thoughts on food. Big step. Most people can’t achieve that for themselves. You need to having the understanding that you control your minds thoughts. what do you think about all day. What kind of thoughts do you feed your brain? Are they positive or negative? Did you know that you have a choice? You are what you think and focus about. So It would make sense to focus on only positive things.
We touched upon mental and physical which leaves Emotional and Spiritual. You need to become emotionally involved in yourself. If you can not feel the emotion for yourself how can you ever share that with others, You need to feel the process you are growing through. Emotion is one of the most important parts of growth. With out emotion there is no motion. We all need motion in order to function.
Spiritually we need to be at peace with ourselves . A lot of people like to dwell in the past . There spirit lies in the hope that they will find the emotion to move on. We need to understand we can’t change the past. We can make sure the future is different. Take our life experiences and share them with others as if the past was a gift. Good or bad it is your past. You can use it to grow and to help others grow. I choose to use my past as a tool to help others grow into their given potential.
I will tell you I :
I eat healthy everyday
I exercise on a regular basis
I show emotion in every aspect of my life
I believe in the power of sharing
I always give generously
I believe in myself
As long as I keep up all of these things i will achieve great things in my life
Everybody holds this potential in themselves. I think it is time to share it with the world.
When ending a relationship of any kind ,When is it Time to Let Go? I get confronted with this situation all the time. I think there is an appropriate time to let go. For everybody the answer may seem different. We all heal differently . What is good for some is not always good for others. I think the longer we focus on something the harder it is to get past it.
You are what you focus on . If you spend your days thinking about the other person , of course you will feel sadness all day. Why would you want to feel like that all day? If you sit and wonder if they are thinking of you and what are they doing really isn’t doing anything productive for yourself.
I am going to list some tools that you can use to help you get past any kind of relationship that you are ending:
- Understand what the attachment is to that person to begin with.
- If you are feeling sadness ,Get in touch with why you are feeling sad.
- Send a letter of GRATITUDE … Let them know things that you got out of the relationship that was healthy and that you just wanted to acknowledge that. That will make you think positive about why they were in your life to begin with.
- FORGIVE… If was a bad relationship for you, forgiveness is a healthy way to let go.
- Find something to take up your time. Look to see where you can improve on yourself.
It is very important at this time to take the time to focus on yourself. This is the time to be a little selfish. Are you eating healthy? Do you exercise? Do you take the time to make yourself feel good? This isn’t something you should just do when you are ending a relationship. These questions you should ask yourself all the time. You are the only person that can take the best care of yourself.
The beyond freedom program has great tools to help you succeed in all areas in you life.
