Questions Questions Questions

 

When I read Sir Richards Bransons book “Screw it Lets Do it” I quickly saw that he and people like him, Bill Gates for example didn’t have all the answers when they embarked on something but that didn’t stop them. They new they could get the answers and learn a long the way.

 
My story is I used to be in Management. Several different Management Roles and I loved learning new material. I loved growing and being a better version of me to help support people to be the best that they could be but when I left the last Role I could not face Leading any more.
 
Not because of the people I Led. They were awesome and some of you maybe reading this and I am not just blowing smoke for that reason. I am honoured to have you as Friends (there is always something positive that comes out of a negative situation). 💕
 
There were several reasons I left but it was usually wrapped up in a lack of integrity on someones part, unprofessionalism, deceitfulness, lack of empathy, even cruelty.
 
I used to ask myself “What was wrong with me? Why couldn’t I find a Job I was happy in? 🙄
 
Were my expectations to high, are my standards to high, unrealistic, to picky” etc etc. 🤔
 
I always tried to dumb down, lower my standards, settle, accept the situation “That’s just how life is” and I always thought it was something was wrong with me. 🙁
 
I was always like the loyal dog you kicked and came back because I was scared. Scared of how I was going to pay my bills etc.
 
But eventually I could not suppress those feelings in my gut and the Universe conspired to get me out.
 
Somewhere a long the way I adopted a standard that if someone asked me a question and I didn’t know the answer I would tell them, if I didn’t know I would find out the answer and get back to them or ask someone else or point them in the direction of support.
 
I always told Trainees/Inductees questions are good. We only know what we know and the only way to know more is ask however I was in a role where it was advised to me not to admit if I didn’t know something as that would cause my Team not to have confidence and Faith in me and they wouldn’t be able to respect me.
 
This went against everything I felt to be right for me because to pretend to know something I didn’t know would be lying and honesty is the most important quality to me.
 
But like the loyal dog I did try to act that way and I felt sick to my stomach and found it difficult to look my Team in the eye.
 
Another thing that made me sick to the stomach (same role) was when I went into that Role I had become a bit gobby and would speak honestly in 121 situations etc and point out when I felt it said one thing on the tin but in reality it wasn’t quite like that (to say the least) one such situation “Equality” I loved the quote about treating the Janitor and the CEO equally but I was warned when I went into the Role by a peer myself and my Team maybe treated as lesser mortals by certain members of staff and unfortunately this was the case so I pointed it out and was given lip service so I kept pointing it out because I felt it was wrong to see people treated disrespectfully and eventually I was told that myself and my Team (and I even hate using the terminology Team because we were/are all equal in my eyes) would have to accept that we would have to be a “little” subservient in our position.
 
It was so hard looking my colleagues in the Face being told this information and I couldn’t/shouldn’t share it with them and that was the day I lost all respect for that Line Manager and I was just going through the motions from that moment on and I felt guilty because I felt I should always earn a salary for a good job done.
 
Thankfully I wasn’t wrong to be true to my beliefs, its OK to have High standards and good honest morals and I am now my own business owner, my own boss but at the same time I have an incredible network of people who I can call on at any time, who only want the best for me and build me up and constantly tell us ALL that are connected to the company not to be afraid to ask questions. Yay !!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
 
For months I have been utilising the resources, watching and listening to the Trainings video’s to be able to be the most knowledgeable, best support system I can to anyone who approaches me for information about being Their own Boss and running Their own business and then it struck me. I was watching the videos etc but I didn’t appreciate the effect that comment of not admitting you don’t know something had on me.
 
It was paralysing me from actually putting myself out there to truly be able to help people because that is all I want to do. Help people be the best they can be and live the life they desire and I know now the opportunity to do that is possible through this incredible business.
 
Because of this amazing network of people I am ready to help people be Their own Boss and build Their own businesses NOW because “It Is OK” to ask questions again, so if I don’t know I know I can get them the information or support they need and point them towards the right resources.
 
Jim Rohn says “Work harder on yourself than you work on your job”
 
I believe if you work on yourself with and your passion even as a side hustle that will eventually replace your job and you will eventually be earning a full time income #doingwhatyoulove and #lovingwhatyoudo
 
I hope you, who ever you are reading this just takes the step in some shape or form to follow your passion and work the rest out on your journey and remember you are never alone.
 
Got a question – Ask away Baby

We are ALL Miracle Magnets

72C1880C-4643-46A1-A288-0F2BE4394AD4

 

Yesterday I wrote about flipping it, switching it. After hearing Jim Rohn say UNTIL after I nearly gave up on a dream  I decided to do something constructive and I switched it and flipped it and started to refocus on what I want, not want I don’t want.

After finishing reading “The Richest Man in Babylon” I decided to make a tick list of the recommended reading list and tick them once completing them. I had already prepped a reading list of 2016 but this was after reading several articles of how successful people are avid readers, Bill Gates being one of them so that every time a finish a book I add it to my list so I can actually see all the books I have read during 2016 and the first book I picked from the Babylon list was “Thought Vibration or the Law of Attraction in the Thought World” by William Walker Atkinson.

This gave me some good starting pointers as reminders to get back on track. You’ll have to read the book but I have adopted a couple new habits when ever fear or doubt creep in and that is to immediately switch it and say “I now have All the Courage of the Universe in me” and the other thing I say is when I think that I can’t have what I desire “I Am the Heiress of the Universe”.

My old subconsciously inherited Thought Forms are pretty darn stuck in those neural pathways and still require some conscious effort to switch and flip so I decided I needed to refocus on world view 2.0 not 1.0 so I dipped in to my kindle app to start rereading Pam Grouts “E:cubed” and make it playful.

In E:cubed Pam has added some communications that Pam received after writing E:squared (highly recommended if you haven’t read it) and it reminded me how people when faced with something they actually started saying they would ‘E:square it’ so yesterday after doing the ‘Happy Dance’ I decided to E:square things when faced with something that tried to flip me back to world view 1.0 and remember the Universe has our back 24/7 and to look for the miracles.

Well yesterday was filled with more miracles than I could shake a stick at and the Universe definitely has a sense of humour constantly sending me little messages to show we me that I am a human transmission tower with even the most random of thoughts creating an impact.

I decided this morning I would also adapt something else Pam does and before I get out of bed I would say “Something amazingly awesome is going to happen to me today !!”

Well it already has – My eldest daughter is getting married soon and I still haven’t got a dress. I’m not scared as I trusted that I would find a dress as I have always found something fantastic and perfect at very short notice on previous occasions however I was very disappointed when I found the perfect dress on line several months ago but it was late in the season and only stick insect sizes were left. I copied and pasted the dress name in to the internet but still the same – insect sizes only then this morning a series of events happened that made me come across the dress again in insect size but I don’t know why I felt inspired to copy and paste it again and also inspired me to click on available sizes. Could I being seeing right? This dress that I could not find for love or money previously was staring at me in my size and not only that, reduced to £90 of your British Pounds instead of the original £230.

I flipped it and switched it and I am now a Miracle Magnet.

My advise is read Pam’s books. Just by reading the books it changes your vibration to world view point 2.0.

Have a miraculous day

How long ?? “UNTIL”

Below is the YouTube video I mentioned in the previous blog post that had my new favourite word in it “UNTIL” plus a few added gems.

Flip it, Switch it. Lets go round again.

 

If you have followed my blog for a while you may know that I adopted a little habit from Ali Brown and brought it in to the 21st Century.

I think it was Jim Rohn (and probably others) that said we become the 5% of people around us so Ali B feeling that she didn’t have direct role models in her 5% started listening to Tony Robbins cassettes borrowed from the library on a walkman on her commute to work on the subway. (Apols Ali if it wasn’t exactly like this as it has been a couple years ago since I read it).

I tweaked this by picking motivational information from my YouTube app on my iPhone. I picked one the other day which was a montage of motivational speakers but one thing funnily enough by Jim Rohn hit the sweet spot.

I like when I read books by people I admire that appear to have their shit together on the positive thinking, Law of Attraction gig admit that they have doubts, bad days, times they don’t have their shit together but not in a sadistic in  reassuring way. It reassures me when I am having trouble remembering that the Universe is supporting 24/7 that it happens to the best of us.

So what was that sweet spot?

I am going through one of those times that I am having to work really hard to hold the faith and kick out the doubt and even asked myself the question perhaps I should stop pursuing a particular avenue and Jim said “Promise yourself you will read the books UNTIL your skills change, you will keep listening UNTIL it makes sense, piece by piece, word by word, bit by bit you’ll keep going for it UNTIL, never give up UNTIL however long that is. Resolve that you will pay the price UNTIL you learn, change, grow,become”

“UNTIL” my new favourite word.

With every passing second we have a new opportunity to start again. If what you are doing isn’t getting the results you want flip it, switch it, go round again UNTIL.

Blog Post Challenge

lifeofdreams

The other day I was thinking of how my blog posts were becoming more and more infrequent and my dream life seems to be slipping away.

Well I think slipping away is the wrong phrase but the vision is a little foggy instead of crystal clear and then I spot something on Facebook that s draws my attention.

A 15 day Blog Challenge by Natalie Sisson the author of and the ‘Suitcase Entrepreneur’. Hmmm maybe this is just what I need?

To be honest I haven’t had the time to read all the info of what is involved but I received and an email today and watched the attached video.

Natalie asked a question and asked the participants to write the answer in their blogs, post it and attached the link from the blog post into the YouTube video comments section.

So here I go ..

Here’s the question

Q.“What is your daily success plan?

A. Before I get out of bed I say to myself in my head “Thank you for all the miracles I receive today, I Love myself, I expect good things to happen to me” and then I remind myself of as many things I can that I am grateful for.

I  try listen to happy music from my happy play list as I get ready for the day.

I have a statement similar to what I say to myself before I get up set it my calendar that comes up at 07:30 am and 08:00am to keep me on track and says “I expect good things and remember there is a solution to every problem”

Just before I leave the house I pick an inspirational YouTube video to listen to as I commute.

I allow myself enough time to sit quietly in my car and take notes on what I have listened to if anything inspires me and write it in my digital journal and then I pick a happy tune to enter work with and I send love to all my colleagues and then the whole Universe (corny maybe but it makes me feel good).

The rest of the day is more random in as much as I always aim to stay positive and live in the moment and stay authentic to myself with what ever the day presents me with and when people maybe unpleasant I send them more love because I don’t know what motivated it and as Gary Zukav says “What ever you do, come from Love, always come from Love”

Any time I have free me time I try to use it as Productively as I can. As Jim Rohn says “You should work harder on yourself than you do on your job”

Well that’s me. Maybe not what was intended by the exercise but I Am just being true and honest to myself and follow the instincts that arose when the question was asked.

Maybe ask yourself the same question “What is your daily success plan?  . Have you got one? What are your dreams looking like? Crystal Clear or a little misty? Maybe you need to bring them back in to full focus

or  like me join the challenge …………

Thank you Toilet

Thank you Toilet

Happiness is not an outside thing, it’s an inside thing.

Happiness is a choice we make regardless of our circumstances.

Whilst I sat in our car as my partner got fuel I looked up at the variety of beautiful trees opposite and their fantastic equally varied foliage flowing in the wind and I felt very relaxed and grateful. So grateful it was a trigger for me to say thank you for all the things I could think of in that moment I was grateful for.

My eyesight to see this beautiful seen and appreciate the gorgeous summers day, thank you health, thank you mobility, thank you car for enabling us to travel through beautiful countryside and picturesque towns and villages, thank you for all the beautiful people in my life and who I come into contact with and on and on and on.

Shorty after my partner got back in the car. He’s a self employed skilled trades made and had to contact a friend that he was currently helping to renovate his home to say he wouldn’t be able to make it to their house today (Saturday) and how frustrated he knew he’d be.

My partner said he would try to make it today (Saturday) after giving him a day during the working week because he got so demanding that he needed him there like, yesterday to do this job and as it was my partner was unable to do anything on arrival because another trade that was required before my partner could do his work had not completed their work so wasted journey wasted day and as it was my partner was going to try to go at the weekend but he had to complete the job he had to put on hold for his demanding friend and couldn’t see himself achieving both.

My partner began to relay how his ‘friend’ was really annoyed because he needed his toilet downstairs working.

I inquired ‘does he have another toilet?’ And he replied ‘Yes, two but he’s fed up of having to keep walking upstairs!’ – “Seriously?” I replied .

My partner continued to tell me varying tales of his attitude towards people working for him or helping him, including very close relatives. Very rude, ungrateful attitude.

I expressed my personal feeling that this person seems to have lost touch with reality and could do with getting some perspective. He is currently renovating a very large house (with three toilets) yet all he seems to be doing is focusing on the negative and moaning. He has a lot in my eyes, more than most and yet by focusing on all the negatives, what good is it doing him.

We are not wealthy in some ways (obviously I need to work on that area) but I remind myself when I think about our kitchen that is falling apart and our partly completed renovated house (with one toilet, upstairs. Maybe that’s why I am so mobile? So I am grateful I have an upstairs toilet) that I am very lucky. I have a roof over my head. Hot and cold running water. An incredible shower (in our completed bathroom, well I am lucky enough to live with a skilled tradesman in that arena).

(And by the way I seem to like brackets today) so thank you to brackets.

I live in a country that allows me as a women equal freedom to do whatever I choose (including drive, still banned for some women in certain countries along with many other things I could take for granted). I won’t be stoned for marrying a man I love or have acid thrown in my face for dishonouring my family, or be genitally mutilated as a teenager and I have the freedom to write all of the above without being beaten or raped.

As we drove home we passed through a town busy with shoppers and I spotted a young man living in a doorway. He’d be grateful for one toilet. Later after my partner went out to complete his work I took out our gorgeous car (that I have manifested which I envisioned many years ago and my colleagues mocked when I discussed the book I was reading and what is suggested to do. Such as manifest a car, well I am driving in it now baby)

I have been listening to a Jim Rohn video on the YouTube app on my mobile phone whilst commuting, something else I am grateful for. Free use of the internet and social media to access motivational material to grow my mind and in this video Jim says “Work harder of yourself than you do at your job”

The (car) job I was in was the first job I had after many years of bringing up three children. It manifested the day after I thought ‘I could get a job now.’

It wasn’t the greatest job, peeling potatoes and onions in a freezing cold environment. When I thought I would like to move on from that job to a more emotionally sound situation another job manifested. Ten years later as if by accident I have gone from peeling potatoes to very well educated in many skills and in my third managerial role.

I haven’t manifested all my dreams yet but I must have been working ok on myself with all the books etc I have read and listened too.

I digressed but what I was going to say was whilst out driving I came to a junction and waiting for a gap in the traffic I saw a man sat in a wheelchair whilst next to him was, probably his son painting a garage door and I thought after many years working within the care industry (after peeling potatoes) ‘I bet this man would like to go to the toilet with dignity and without the aid of equipment and possibly the help of another human being and our ‘friend’ feels hard done by because he has to walk upstairs to his two other toilets.

He has a gorgeous house etc etc and he his moody with a bad attitude to others and the man I gave ten pounds to in a door way the other evening who was a gift to meet and told me he was so happy because in two weeks he was moving in to his own place that he found after ten weeks living on the streets because after having to leave his last property he couldn’t find a landlord that would accept his beloved dog until now. He was the happiest person I’d met in a long time.

Proving you don’t have to be rich to be happy, proving you don’t have to have a lot to be happy and proving having a lot won’t make you happy.

It’s an inside job and it’s a choice.

There is always something to be grateful for in any given situation.

Just Brilliant !!!!!!!!!!!

 

Just Brilliant. I love how this man took a situation that most people would have kicked off about and turned it into a positive.

Just goes to prove we truly can choose our thoughts and create positives in seemingly negative situations.

As Jim Rohn says we just need to change our philosophy
