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!
