Never Say Never !!!

Never Say Never !!!

One big hurdle in my life has been overcoming my poor money mindset

This one goes deep and I have watched YouTube videos by the gorgeous Christie Marie Sheldon and I know where it originated from

I’ve read numerous books. Done affirmations but I’m still not Rockefeller

But wait ……..

Yesterday I caught myself subconsciously…… subconsciously doing something positive !!!

Something triggered me to think about my credit card bill and I instantly had an overwhelming sick, hot feeling and then my mind instantly exchanged that thought with a positive affirmation and I caught myself doing it.

I recently started reading Jack Canfield “The Success Principles” and in there I read about someone who keeps a Victory log and logs the smallest triumphs both business and personal ie: getting his son to tidy his room

I see this as a huge Victory for me and proof that I can change my mindset over money. Maybe slowly but surely and slowly is better than Never !!

As if validation … I was listening to “The 4 Year Career” by Richard Bliss Brooke and it came on to the success stories and it came on to a story about (Jordan Adler author of Beach Money) and maybe wording it differently but basically it said Jordan had massive credit card debts where he used his cards to attend seminars and buy stock for his Network Marketing Companies he was investing in and he saw his credit card debt as a necessary I won’t say it ….. a necessary requirement at the time shall I say to invest in the knowledge he needed to get him to where he needed to be and he never gave up on his pursuit despite numerous routes that didn’t work. I won’t say failure following the Edison analogy and now he is very wealthy and successful.

The card I was thinking of is my highest payment because I used it for something similar. I invested in B School with Marie Forleo and that investment is priceless as the resource is there constantly and ever year as an Alumni you get to do it all over again with the new B Schoolers. Something I highly recommend on all counts because I did it this year and I saw how much my knowledge etc had improved from last year which is a huge positive enforcement in itself.

And if I needed any more enforcement, every morning I put on YouTube as I dress and listening to something motivational and this morning tapping on one video and accidentally jumped on the video below …… or did I ??? 🙂

What ever you are doing to change or improve Never Say Never because once you take a positive step to improve something you can never go back to the person you were before you made that step.

You are truly a New Person

Have a good day. Much Love

Dancing in the Street

Dancing in the Street. Well not quite. As I mentioned previously I haven’t become that brave yet but I was laughing in the street today.

I listen to motivational material on my commute and the last two days I have listened to Les Brown. Not much else makes me spontaneously smile like Les Brown’s laugh. It is so infectious.

Yesterday Les suggested we keep a journal as we are given good ideas all the time but we don’t document them or act on them.

I resonated with this idea and as I keep my journals electronic via Evernote I immediately decided to make a special Evernote notebook for this purpose.

This morning Les said something that reminded me of an idea I had many years ago as I was graduating from college but never really ran with and then I had an idea that could potential reignite this the original idea. It was like popping candy going off in my head.

What Les said that gave me this feeling related to Les saying how we fail to notice the beauty in every day and step over it or literally crush it.

Later on I needed to walk into town and decided to pop in the earbuds and listen to more Les. Les’s infectious laughter and words often caused unexpected outbursts and I remembered to notice the beauty in our world as I stared up at the clouds and appreciate the blue sky in between. I spotted pigeons roosting in the rafters of a bridge that no one else probably saw, strange blobby things on the still bare winter branches. A beautiful ornate shop front I had never saw before and as I laughed unabandoned and smiled at every passer by that made eye contact I felt blissfully happy and I truly felt like dancing in the street.

As I graduated from University my final piece was all about taking time to notice the beauty in every day life as we rush around hectically and miss the lone poppy on a piece of waste land or a flower in the crack in the ground or an amazing vivid yellow van on a grey day.

As I listened to Les the weather outside my car was windy and wet as storm something or other whipped around my automobile but he reminded me as I walked to work once in equally inclement weather I saw written on the pavement the words “I’m Awesome” and I thought I should document these observations in photographic evidence on my phone and as I walked down the road, keeping my head down to protect it from the rain, still listening to Les there I saw it.

I was walking over the same stretch of pavement. You may think not odd. Same route to work everyday however parking is limited and out on the street. I haven’t parked on this street for several weeks but today there wasn’t any parking available where I have normally been aiming to park. Last night I was reading about do coincidences exist or is there more to it?

Hello Universe. This was no accident.

This is what I saw and thought no time like the present and back tracked on myself and got my phone out.

In reality we are ALL AWESOME but we forget the power within. Don’t forget to look for the beauty in everyday and remember your awesomeness 🙂

The Procreation Myth

myth

This is not my normal LOA post, this fell out of me on my Evernote page this morning when instinct told me to write down something I called the Procreation Myth that came back to me before I forgot it and then after it all fell out of me instinct said blog it so here I am laying myself raw:

All along growing up I had a feeling inside that I wasn’t like everyone else around me. I didn’t want to get married and have babies. I wanted a career. I wanted independence. I wanted to work in London, buy my own home, on my own. I wanted t travel alone and I was pretty determined that would be the case and visualised myself power dressed, carrying a portfolio and returning to my one bedroom contemporary apartment and planned to go to college and then University.

Life gave me crossroads and threw up other options because I wasn’t aware at the time I was throwing thoughts out there and wasn’t aware of the power of my own thoughts and how they brought those crossroads to my door and gradually somewhere inside of all of that the Procreation Myth was whispering in my ear and lack of confidence in myself and the need to please I allowed myself to put my authenticity to one side, my voice, my desires, my dreams and goals and here I was despite so much wanting a different vision. Unhappily married with 3 children that I loved and hated at the same time.

It is important to say that I didn’t hate them for a second as individuals and now I have written it I didn’t hate them at all I hated myself for being someone I planned so hard not to be. A mother. I was probably berating myself without even hearing it but what I was probably saying to myself when I found being a mother sooooooooo hard was “You idiot, how did you get here? This is not what you planned stupid”

I heard people saying how fulfilling being a mother was and how joyous their children were and this only added to my inner turmoil because this led to more self loathing. “You’re right, you shouldn’t have not been a mother, how did you let yourself get here? You suck at this. You should have never let this happen, they are happy because that is what they were meant to be, you’re struggling because it wasn’t the plan and it wasn’t a plan for you for a reason. It was a message to stop you having kids because you suck at it and you were designed for something else but you failed and you bought in to the procreation myth.

The Procreation Myth is as I see it written below:

It is not until you get married you realise to didn’t need too

It is not until you have babies you realise you didn’t need them

I wrote the procreation myth late one night whilst I was alone. Which was pretty much all the time, while my husband was away and the kids were in bed and in a way writing it was a relief. It was an acknowledgement that yes we don’t need too but most of us don’t question it.

I wrote that over 20 years ago and two things have changed since then and actually one as I write these words.

I am so grateful I live in this time and I express my gratitude almost everyday. So much has changed in that 20 years where evolution is concerned and the equality in the world. To some it may not appear that way but if we stop to analyse the evidence not just in the area of being a women but so many people are free to express themselves as who they truly are and the ability to be their authentic selves on the public forum instead of a stilted silent wish inside their heads and the evidence is also there almost daily if we look for it as teenage women in oppressed counties stand up and say I want an education, I don’t want to marry that person, I don’t want to be mutilated because of some archaic belief that is not relevant, I love this person and actually I do want to marry them and have children with them even if they are the same-sex as me and more and more each day in more and more places that is being accepted as the norm and more and more each day in more and more places that will become the norm as we become more aware.

Awareness is a magnificent gift, rather than blind acceptance and what I have become aware of as I write these words that are just flowing through me is that maybe something at a higher vibration than my physical presence was guiding me along in to the procreation myth because whilst it was hard at the time I cannot think of anything more joyous than my children and my now grandchildren and if I hadn’t struggled in my now long dead marriage or struggled with motherhood I wouldn’t be reaping the harvest now – as my Dearest now departed Wayne Dyer so eloquently pointed out in his book “I Can See Clearly Now”.

Travelling back from somewhere yesterday I listened to Les Brown say when you step up it will be hard. It won’t be easy. Easy is staying where you are. Hard is changing that habit. Hard is stepping out of your comfort zone but it will be worth it.

We truly live in an age where nothing is impossible and everything is ‘Possible’ so go forth and live your authenticity loud and proud and if and when those saboteurs start speaking to you like mine did above we have sooooooooo many tools available to us at the touch of a button to help us to break those habits and break out of our comfort zones and find new ways of living.

Here’s to an even better, more aware future.

From this day forward there are no bad days

My life has been particularly challenging of late but every day I awake with renewed vigour and tell myself today is full of miracles however another challenge rear’s its head but at the same time materials keep appearing that support me and remind me that even successful people have challenges the difference is ……….. they don’t give up.

Despite these challenges repeatedly appearing deep down inside I feel there is a purpose and the Universe has got my back.

Yesterday I felt I should be doing one thing but was drawn to doing other stuff and then it struck me if I do what I feel I should be doing rather than what I want to do the should stuff will have negative energy attached to it and I will be transmit that out into the ether so I decided to go with what attracted me in the present moment and one of those present moment thoughts was to chill in the exceptionally unusual British summer weather in the garden with a cold drink and listen to some inspirational material on YouTube.

Instinct made me choose a video I saved a few days earlier by Les Brown and while the whole video was incredible and again advising to carry on regardless or in Les’s words “It’s not over until you win”. The other thing that struck me like a sledge-hammer was next time you are having a bad day, don’t say you are having a bad day, say you are having a character building day.

So from this day forward I only have good days and character building days, so come of life bring on your challenges cos it ain’t over until I win !!!!!!!!
