Last week I was fortunate to meet Deepak Chopra, up-close and personal. It was just myself, Deepak and 1,000 of his closest friends. He spoke for an hour, gave us a copy of his awesome new book, Super Brain and off we went. Continue reading

Yesterday, on our Go-Giver Coaching call, Christie Ellis shared wisdom from Larry Winget, author of Shut Up, Stop Whining and Get A Life. Larry is world-renowned for his no-nonsense approach to success. If you want to change your results, YOU need to change. And I’ll add to that by saying, if you want to change our results, you must change your thoughts, feelings and words around them. Continue reading
Actually, the journal should come first (but then it wouldn’t be such a snappy, little title), because that’s what this post is about~ writing in a journal.
DISCLAIMER: EVERYTHING IN RED IS A BOLD-FACED LIE, WRITTEN TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF HOW TO MAKE STUFF UP (MSU). Continue reading
If there is one thing that seems to hold people back from going for something they truly want, it’s a little word called HOW. Many people are hesitant to set a goal, because they don’t see a way HOW it could happen. And we have been conditioned to believe that we need to know how, before we embark on something new. Well, I’m here to tell you “No, we don’t.” Continue reading

What does luck have to do with it? And by “it,” I mean life, success, results, happiness…. When good things happen, should we consider ourselves “lucky” or should we step back, notice and appreciate all the intricate connections that had to occur? Continue reading
The dictionary defines coincidence as “a striking occurrence of two or more events at one time, apparently by mere chance.” It goes on to list its synonyms as “accident, luck and fate.”
In preparing for my interview today with Ryan Lowe, author of “Get Off Your Attitude,” I noticed he had a quote about coincidence in his chapter on Faith. The quote comes from Albert Einstein, who said “Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous.” I really love that definition! And I enjoy living life not only noticing and appreciating coincidences, but also recognizing all the intricate connections which had to occur and attributing them to a Higher Power. Continue reading
Time once again to share a fantastic quote from one of my favorite teachers on The Law of Attraction. This one has to do with improving results, achieving goals and changing current “reality”. All of these changes begin, as we begin to…….
Tell A Different Story!
“Start telling a better-feeling story about the things that are important to you. Do not write your story like a factual documentary, weighing all the pros and cons of your experience, but instead tell the uplifting, fanciful, magical story of the wonder of your own life and watch what happens. It will feel like magic as your life begins to transform right before your eyes, but it is not by magic. It is by the power of the Laws of the Universe and your deliberate alignment with those Laws.” ~ Abraham
As little children, we are really great at making up stories. Our imaginations soar as we create fantasies in our minds and we get emotionally involved with the idea of those fantasies becoming a reality. And then somewhere along the line, we learn to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
While honesty is a great quality, it doesn’t serve us well when we are trying to make stuff up (MSU). Our conscious mind knows the difference between the truth and a lie. But here’s the great news: our subconscious mind does not! And it’s our subconscious mind that determines how we feel and how we vibrate. And it’s how we feel and how we vibrate that influence what we attract.
In working with people on their goals, I start by asking them to tell me about what they want. And typically they will tell me, in great detail, what they don’t want or what they used to have or what is causing them to struggle… all of which are their “old story.” The problem is, it continues to be their “new story,” so long as they keep telling it. They feel strongly that I need to hear about what has come before, so I can understand how they got to where they are today. And while that is true, once I’ve heard it, we can and should move on. On to the new story. Talk to me about what you want to be or do or have. Let’s give some thought energy to those things. Let’s tell your new story and let’s MSU!
The best way I know to do that is by writing in a journal. Get out a notebook and a pen and start to MSU. Pretend you’re writing a novel and make the story interesting and colorful. YOU are the main character and YOU are exciting and interesting! YOU are smart and successful and beautiful and funny and fit and popular and loved. Your life can be as exciting as you decide to make it when you tell your story; or as boring, mundane and predictable as you decide to keep it by continuing to tell your story.
So what ‘s your story?
Are you telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, or do you allow yourself to MSU?
Have you ever journalled about something and later achieved or received it? I love hearing those stories!
Disclaimer: I am not suggesting or condoning lying to your friends and family and colleagues; only to your subconscious mind. And I am definitely encouraging you to exercise your imagination and tell a different story to yourself.
Thoughts become things.
We become what we think about.
Like attracts like.
However you want to say it, The Law of Attraction works every time, for every person. Whether we’re looking at the business, friends or resources we want to attract, we do it the same way…
with our THOUGHTS. Continue reading
