A Big shout out to the all the people that stepped out of their comfort zones and told themselves they were worth a different life. As the quote says “Success Leaves Clues” You can spend your life building your dream or your can spend your life building someone else’s.
Tony Robbins says Success Leaves Clues and today more than ever those clues are so accessible via the internet etc.
You can watch a YouTube tutorial, start that online course, listening to that audio book while you commute etc.
Or as Tim Ferris suggests email that person you admire and ask them questions.
There is never a perfect time so why not start today and this time next year who knows where you will be.
Like Lao Tzu says “The Journey of a Thousand miles starts with one step” Take that step today and look for those clues ?
I am a ‘Time Chunker’. Planning out my To Do’s and Time chunking tasks in my 2 Passion Planners (yes I have 2 because I love them so much. One strictly business and one for creativity and everything else)
But despite having a clearly written out daily To Do list yesterday I was aware I have not been chunking and planning recently and I have been slipping in certain areas so I decided today I am going to plan out next week and start July but I needed some sort of timing system and instinct said I should use my Google Calendar more productively and plan out specific blocks of time per task so I incorporate missed areas
I was always strictly digital apart from daily To Do list and Passion Planner but since joining the Femalepreneur Academy I have really started to find the benefits of going old school and writing ideas down and I loveeeeee ? a workbook now but I lose track of time so that’s why this video was answering my ask
Perfect combination of old school and geek rolled into one and it made me aware of an app that sorts my timing requirement Never discount these seemingly “coincidences”
This is the Law of Attraction in action
The more you notice and acknowledge these occurrences in your life the more you will attract consciously and purposefully
I love a bit of Jakes energy in the morning and talking of energy in this video Jake explains how everything is energy and when I first heard this I intuitively knew it was right while all my other Peers were taking the mic (putting it politely) out of the lecturer that was explaining it to us so I stayed quiet but I could not shake this inner knowing that news I heard was true.
I now know it is scientifically proven but when someone tells us the chairs we are sat on and the table they are sat on is not solid and is just particles vibrating I appreciate it is “hard” to get your head around but I could not shake this feeling it was true
I am using this information to my advantage now since learning about The Law of Attraction and it seems so weird now how things have panned out since that day and that I recently qualified as a Practitioner in The Law of Attraction at the basic level and this weekend I will be taking the exam for the Advanced level
We are all born with an Inner Guidance System or Gut feeling which I experienced that day and I am so glad I did not dispel it. I do sometimes wonder what my Peers are doing these days that were so quick to laugh off the information
I am now living my Dream life and building bigger and better versions ever day talking of which. Jake gives a really good exercise towards the end of this video regarding ‘Your Dream Day’ so maybe it is worth not dispelling it and giving it a go. What have you got to lose? And like me that day when I heard about energy is everywhere and nothing is solid I just kept it to myself so no one needs to know until they see the results in your life and ask “What have you been doing? How did you get so lucky?”
It’s either a blessing or a lesson and sometimes it is a blessing and a lesson.
I aim to do Personal Development daily to stay in the best possible, highest vibration I can but I am human and recently something was really frustrating me so I did what I normally do and remind myself how this like previous negative situations in a few days this will not have the charge it currently has and in a few weeks I will probably not even remember it. I also remind myself it is either a blessing or a lesson and try to see what the lesson is.
I made a decision based on this that felt good and then I was led to amazing opportunities that I would have never found if I hadn’t had the negative situation happen. So much so, yesterday I saw something that a few weeks ago that would probably have upset me but instead I laughed because I was in such a good place that I would never been in if it wasn’t for those previous experiences and I said thank you for the blessing.
Later in the day I was reading a book in where the author who I thought really has his sxxt together told a story of having a conversation with a Monk in a hot tub (as you do) and the Monk told him “I know what your problem is, you have low self-esteem. He was defensive at first as it was explained and then he agreed that certain behaviour traits were indeed due to low self-esteem. He then described another scenario where he spent time with and excellent Leader in their field that highlighted a scarcity issue.
While reading this it struck me that the reason I felt frustration recently was because of low self-esteem and a story I was telling myself that probably wasn’t even true.
Like the author. Because we make a conscious effort to deal with negative situations we thought we are doing a good job but we were not dealing with the underlying issue in the first place and I knew today I needed to do some inner work on my self worth and where to go to for this. For me, Marisa Peer (who coincidently was the person who highlighted the scarcity issues to the author but who I would have referred to anyway).
Now I wasn’t in the position to have a 121, Face to Face with Marisa today but I did the next best thing for me and YouTube Marisa and do some “I Am” statements and my favourite Marisa “I AM” “I Am Worthy”
Later I watched a Masterclass presentation and the speaker asked “do you think you are a victim of circumstance buffeted around by life and have no control over things?” I said to the screen “No chance” Knowing I am responsible for it all. Even the sxxt stuff because at some level I have attracted this with my thoughts but its ok because I am grateful for the lesson that my self-esteem obviously needs some work and with that a lady opened the shop door as said “I just have to say. I walk past your shop every week and I wanted to tell you, your work is truly incredible”
I think she was probably aware by my reaction how taken back I was by her kind comment and I told her how grateful I was and appreciative of her for taking the time to tell me.
We shouldn’t need validation from others but it seemed very coincidental that this person arrived on this day to tell me my work is good and I know there truly are no accidents.
Even the most successful people in the world look to others to help them become the best version of themselves they can become.
I recently heard some advise I have taken to heart and determined to work on achieving and that was to attend every destination event you possibly can as you will come away invigorated and inspired to take your life to the next level by what you hear and learn. I know from his position this was actually aimed at NWM but it can be applied to any destination invent with incredible guest speakers and I am so glad that very soon I am will be attending an incredible Event with so many guest speakers and only a short distance away from me for far, far less than most events like this cost so now I am so super excited to keep working on my self-esteem even when I feel I have my sxxt together and take my game to the next level ~ whose coming with me? xx
I can actually hear Shania Twain singing in my head right now “You Go Girl”
When I started this blog, I felt compelled to (burning desire that wouldn’t go away) for a start, I wanted to share my observations of The Law of Attraction in action in my life and called the category “Just Me Rambling”
And I suppose in an arrogant type of way I wanted to try and say “Hey, this is happening in my life and it is happening to you in yours and hopefully generate a thought that would make people question both the good and the bad in their lives and see there are no accidents (blogged about that) and then start using deliberate creation to attract life’s circumstances intentionally
What I didn’t mention was that when I started I was terrified. Terrified of pressing the publish button. Terrified about my content (despite being from the heart) Terrified of telling people I know and love that I created this blog. I would tremble, my heart rate would rise so much I swear it was going to fly out of my chest and take flight like one of those moths above
I literally didn’t know one single soul who talked about The Law of Attraction. Practiced daily Personal Development. Watched Video’s on YouTube. Read Personal Development books and books on Quantum Physics. I got a lot of stick about my books from my partner. How it was all rubbish and I should throw them away but still I felt compelled to read them but just tried to be more discreet. iPad and iPhones are great for that with YouTube & iBooks, Kindle apps 😉
It did always stick with me what Jim Rohn says about being the sum of the 5 people around us and I thought “Ok, I’ll have to create my 5% virtually” but still I stayed in the shadows and practiced my Woo Woo in secret.
It has always been a dream of mine to be self-employed and in 2016 whilst off work (from a job I hated) due to a broken leg that I broke the day after making a Bob Proctor inspired goal card saying “I Am Successfully Self-Employed Doing What I love and Loving What I Do” and I know, extreme way to get time away from it and making me miss my daughters wedding in to the bargain (more blog posts) I started writing a book about experimenting attracting things via the path of least resistance, however hands up I still haven’t finished the book because I returned to work quicker than diagnosed because I decided to self heal inspired by Anita Moorjani’s book “Dying to Be Me” and every morning on my return I placed the goal card in front of me by my PC screen and after a very strange series of events when I least expected it in a path of least resistance way a business opportunity arose almost 2 years ago doing what I love and loving what I do but that’s not the point of this post (just a little back story that fell out of my brain)
The point is about something that only just occurred to me today …….
Whilst doing what I love I listen to a lot of podcasts, ebooks, YouTube Video’s etc and as well as the physical business (Painting Wooden Ducks) in the summer of 2017 another business opportunity arose in Network Marketing and learning from the previous situation that to get anywhere you have to take risks and do the things that other people aren’t willing to do to get where you want to be
Now, I knew nothing about NWM and I have probably been the worlds worst NWM because I followed the advise I saw from the ‘Lives’ and Training video’s and despite the products being amazing and Training material contributors getting amazing results I got none. Before implementing them I felt icky in my gut (and despite always aiming to be a gut listener) I tried their way because I didn’t know any different and talking of trying and my gut recently something said stick with it but aim to be more authentic and come from a place of alignment and not a sheep. Thanks Universe, no soft soaping there Baby.
This morning I listened to an incredible Ali Brown Podcast about how we hide our important messages in our safe space and challenging us to get our true message out there in full public view and of course it resonated with me with my new desire to be completely authentic and aligned in ALL things regardless of the consequences but to be perfectly honest …….
Network Marketing has given me the confidence to do that for a long time in regards to my own personal offers about myself but I just wasn’t doing it in my Networking practices with my products because I didn’t have the confidence in my own abilities in that business arena
I have other aspirations now in business for 2019 and I am 100% assured I only move forward doing something for this venture when it is authentic and aligned (and gut checked) and the authentic and aligned in all areas is getting more natural now
Wow this is longest Blog post I have written in months … thank you so much if you have stuck with it this far. I appreciate you so much
And while I have been doing the authentic and aligned in recent days I have attracted more friends and followers than I have done …. ever !! And most of them have been in the business and MLM environment and this is where is shows authentically complete honesty …..
I had the thought …. I really hope they don’t try to spammy pitch me their opportunity and try to poach me because I love my company and it’s products and I am staying put (and we are NO.3 in the top Ten MLM Companies to work for in 2019) and we have a no spam policy but usually when I get business followers this happens (Yuck) so I checked my messages …. no eggy spam – Hoorah !!
And then I thought the light bulb thought …. I maybe wrong but maybe they added me as a peer, or they liked my (authentic) content and genuinely want to follow me because I put out my Woo Woo on my wall and they relate to it.
See, I am not terrified who knows the real me any more so it is all out there for everyone to see
I love Frazer Brookes, seriously check him out because he is all about the authentic message in Network Marketing and the other day Frazer posted “Be so positive that negative people delete you on Facebook”
And the negative partner who said throw the books away …. now he’s all positive, positive and eradicates the negative. No News in our house or Negative people on his social feed
And the 5%? I have to admit it still surprises me and I don’t know why. When I joined my NWM Company I joined because I felt it was a great opportunity but I never expected a community of people who like me, watch motivational material every morning. Read Personal Development books all the time and openly talk about The Law of Attraction on their Social Media platforms
I secretly wanted to be self-employed with as Bob Proctor advises ‘Multiple Streams of Income and I secretly wanted to connect to like minded people who would stimulate me and I attracted both it almost feels like, by accident or should I say “The Path of Least Resistance”
I was listening to an audiobook yesterday by #sarahrobbins and in it she tells a story of someone that recruited an individual into their Network Marketing company and the recruiter gave up shortly after and the person they recruited went on to be a top earner in the Company and this made me think of this question.
“What would we achieve if we don’t quit?”
Yes we always think of quitting sometimes. Feel overwhelmed etc. It’s easier to think of a million reasons not to do something than one reason why we should continue but maybe this is the question we should always apply when we feel like quitting – “What if”
What if I give it one more day?
What if I give it one more try?
What if I act on that gut instinct (which is always our Higher Self guiding us to the best possible outcome)
“What would you achieve if you don’t quit’ The outcomes are endless and I believe far more rewarding that quitting
Let’s not regret anything in 2019 and make it our best year ever which is also just prequel for 2020 which will then be our best year ever
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.
