Change your mind change your LIFE!
That is what I grew up listening to my whole life from my first life coach and mentor, my dad.
I would say he is a pretty smart guy if he had that figured out before this self help craze became the norm in our society!
But looking back so many things in my life would have been different if I have never heard those words.
Picture little 8 year hold me scraped my knee down to my knee caps and not a tear or fear in sight telling my mom I felt nothing because " it's all in my head"
To which she still says the all too familiar reply " you are your fathers' daughter.
But I digress
To live in a mind where every emotion and every feeling leads you to hesitate or worse panic is the norm in our society.
Everyday people, frozen and hoping that the results they want just show up!
Well sorry to break it to you but its time to wake up!
Nothing you want will be goven to you!
Nothing you want will be gifted to you!
Nothing you want will just appear!
HOWEVER: the circumstances around which one prepares to manifest amazing things is "mental work."
Its like when we were back in school and preparing for an exam. You don't just show up!
You study and in this case you make your mind ready to receive the bounty you desire!!
So how do you transform your life?
YOU MUST TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR MIND.
Our minds are like a three-year-old indiscriminately running around with scissors and falling sometimes fatally for the next depressing idea.
You mind unchecked and unmonitored kills dreams all day!
So it's up to set some rules up by doing the following:
1) stay awake/ be ready!
Do not allow your mind to wander into the dark places it most certainly is comfortable in! Our minds are created to keep us safe and cozy from the "danger" present in our everyday lives! But let me tell you a post on your wall is not a lion or a tiger! You can and must put yourself out there in order to get any semblance of success. To stay awake and notice your thoughts so they don't sabotage you!
2)Have a freaking goal in mind
The GOAL is to get to what you want I know. But what do you actually want? Have you CLEARLY defined where you are going and how you are going to get there? If not then its time to over hall your goal list and create the success you need in your life!
For some guidance on how to organize your goals, please check out my program goal setting boot camp on this link->
2) Journal and set your day!!
Your system override is happening even as we speak but to keep your brain in check it's important to set yourself up for success! That is why I consistently write my goals and affirmations down EVERY SINGLE DAY!

3) Do not "run with" every negative thought that pops up
remember that analogy from earlier: do not run with scissors!
It's NO fun! You will end up cutting your dreams in the process! Instead cut your fears! I am telling you nothing will bring you more success than killing your fears!
4) have your "manual override" phrase that gives you back control right away
please create your mind hack phrase! Like now!! Do not wait until your having to walk back on the plank or even in the middle of a doomsday dive before you know exactly what to say to snap you out of it! When I worked I'm sales my phrase was always: I love money more than my fears. When I started my business my mind hack was "I am ready to level up!" Now as I am fully working my business It " I know I am meant and serve and am ready for greatness! This gets me out of any mental jam up!
it's not easy! And I certainly am the first to tell you that I fail to do at least 1 of these every once in a while! But the mind is a powerful tool and if you have been using this tool to crush your dreams clearly it is going ti take a little work to get it DONE!
Hence why I am starting a new Group coaching program, Best Life Academy to get this under control asap! It will feature ongoing trainings for creatives and entrepreneurs looking to launch in their industry with a clear line to what they want and what they can bring to improve people's lives!
By all means feel free to take this article and change your life on your own terms BUT if you truly want to get past what has stopped you on your creative and entrepreneur journey feel free to sign up below and join the waiting list!
HUSTLE BABY HUSTLE!
It is NO surprise that the hardest working people I know have the most brilliant lives.
Its also NO surprise the people I know waiting for their next vacation are in struggle mode!
Look around you. Are the people striving to have MORE everyday do more be more. OR are you noticing that people are just waiting for their next vacation to start enjoying life!
Don't wait until you love what you do to start enjoying life!
It;s not too much to ask for and here is why:
IF YOU WANT IT YOU WORK FOR IT!
Getting out of your own way is super hard. Going against society nirms to : get a good job and settle down" sound great but they come at a great cost for us creatives working our BUTTS off to make more than a little dollar into a million!
We want to make shift happen in the world, with our music, art, words energy and there is so much pressure to just BE!
We are not guaranteed opportunities but we better be ready emotionally physically and mentally to say yes!!!! That is why I work so hard to get it done! Because I know that I have but so much time before I expire and I MUST make the most of it.
Do not be warn down by the games we play as a society to get everyone to conform rise against it!
Reform and reframe what work means to you to get you what you want!
Actually sit down and make a goal list of things that matter you you!
While you are at it: start journaling for success by writing down your affirmations!
These simple tools help you stay in focus when all you want to do is say "Maybe later" or worse yet "NO"
People most ready to level up will do the work, will make the sacrifices, willl read this article and say YES!
Will share this message for their friends and change lives with their actions!
Do not be a foul and think that you will never see struggle if you stick to a plan. But do be daring and move towards a proper assessment of the risks and DO IT ANYWAY!
MAKE IT HAPPEN!
GET YOUR HUSTLE ON!! NO MATTER WHAT!
And please DO remember to LEVEL UP!
There is so often this misconception that when you reach a certain point then you will be happy, in love, successful etc without first knowing that no matter what your outside looks like if your insides are not right you got NOTHING!
Don't be fooled by the hype that having things is a symbol of your success, instead work from the inside out to evolve your life to create even more and from a place that will never ever stop wanting more abundance!
