40 Days to Make 2017 THE Year. Day 36- Know that you are a Hero!

“True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic.  It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.”
Arthur Ashe

If you have truly committed to the last 35 days of this experiment; if you have read the messages and done your best to apply them, absorb them and understand them for 35 days, you are rare.

 You are among the small 10{9c244d8ed86355dd0a86bab4317158b0d119ceb95dfad73ab1415bad7035f9f4} of human beings who will ever begin to be deliberate creators.  Re-patterning our thoughts and beliefs takes diligent attention and is not work for sissies.  It is work for heroes.

Heroes who are willing to show up every day, willing to be better than the day before and do their part for the expansion of the Universe....

40 Days to Make 2017 THE Year. Day 35- Plan!

Someone’s sitting in the shade today, because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”

In addition to your vision; your big picture, all inclusive dream for your life, create some long term, mid term and short term goals. These will provide markers to help you know that you are still on course and making the most of every day.

If your dream is to have a $5 million business by 2020, what are the steps between?  Your vision is the foundation, now fill in more of the structure, the walls and windows, with yearly, quarterly, monthly and weekly goals.  

Your weekly plan is then your map for how you plan your days.  You are the captain and you will LOVE how it feels to really own that, to really take the helm and refuse to be at the mercy of the...

40 Days to Make 2017 THE Year. Day 34- Sing!

We do not sing because we are happy.  We are happy because we sing.”

I was taught as a young salesperson to “fake it ’til you make it” and it’s a great lesson.  It means to act like the person you want to be.  Act like the person who is having the day that you want to have.  Act like a person who is happy, confident and rich and you will become a person who is.  Sing or dance or laugh or hug someone and relish the happiness and joy that come rushing through that open door.

40 Days to Make 2017 THE Year. Day 33- Own your moments!

“We are always getting ready to live but never living.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
 
(Focus on 2017 – for reminder instructions see blog or last week’s mail. Basically, read and practice these every day; transform your life in 40 days)
 

We don’t realize how we use words to make ourselves victims.  Phrases like, “I don’t have time,”  “I can’t,”  “I have to,”  “I’m tied up,”  all are disempowering statements that say we are not in charge, that the circumstances of our lives are in steering the ship.

Instead, understand that EVERYTHING is a choice and that you are the master of your schedule.  Instead, say “I GET to,” “I CHOOSE to,” “I WANT to.”

 
 
You are creating your life!  Choose your thoughts, your words, your actions and your feelings and create a life you truly LOVE living!  Decide...

40 Days to Make 2017 THE Year. Day 32- Be friendly with your failures!

“Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.”
Rober F Kennedy

You did it!  Took a chance, got out of your comfort zone, tried something new…. and it didn’t work out like you wanted it to.  At all!  Don’t run back cowering to your comfort zone, hiding out and feeling like a failure.  Embrace your results!  Make note of what happened and how it evolved and use this as new information for a new jumping off spot; a new way to try.  Edison “failed” 10’s of 1000’s of times before succeeding in creating the incandescent bulb.  He didn’t call them failures, he called them feedback.

40 Days to Make 2017 THE Year. Day 31- Be Uncomfortable!

“Discomfort brings engagement and change. Discomfort means you’re doing something that others were unlikely to do, because they’re hiding out in the comfortable zone.”
Seth Godin
 
(Focus on 2017 – for reminder instructions see blog or last week’s mail. Basically, read and practice these every day; transform your life in 40 days)
 
All successful people are willing to accept some discomfort, in the interest of growth.  Imagine a circle with three rings.The center is your comfort zone, the outer ring is your panic zone, and the middle ring is your grow zone.  
 
You’ve pushed yourself to the point that you will grow, but not so far that you panic, freak out and quit. Do something that challenges you every day, be a little uncomfortable, in the interest of growth.
 
You are creating your life!  Choose your thoughts, your words, your actions and your feelings and create a life you truly LOVE...

40 Days to Make 2017 THE Year. Day 30- Enjoy the journey!

40 Days to Make 2017 THE Year.  Day 30 – Enjoy the journey!
“There can be no happy ending to an unhappy journey.”
Abraham-Hicks

Many people will set a goal, and then do whatever it takes to reach that goal, no matter how little they enjoy any of the steps.  Chances are, that goal will not be reached and if it is reached there will be little satisfaction or joy in the accomplishment.  
 
You may have even damaged or neglected other parts of your life, like your relationships or your health, in order to reach said goal.  When you have set your sites on the life you would LOVE, when you are being the person who is living that dream, the resulting feeling is blissful; a joyful journey.
 
This is not to say there will not be discomfort,...

40 Days to Make 2017 THE Year. Day 29- Start!

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”
Sally Berger

Sometimes we manage to come up with a dream, a vision for our lives; we fall in love with that vision, but we don’t take action and our dream remains just a wish.  Sit down and brainstorm a list of the things you could do to move in the direction of your dream.  
 
Write as many as you can think of, no matter how large or small.  Look at this list and do something from it every day. Make a separate list of things that only take 5 minutes or less. Use these tiny tasks to get you started and moving in the right direction.
 
You are creating your life!  Choose your thoughts, your words, your actions and your feelings and create a life you truly LOVE living!  Decide...

40 Days to Make 2017 THE Year. Day 28- Appreciate!

“Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.”
Marcus Aurelius
 
(Focus on 2017 – for reminder instructions see blog or last week’s mail. Basically, read and practice these every day; transform your life in 40 days)
 
 
Appreciation and gratitude can seem like the same thing, but appreciation, to me, feels like a more joyous expression. Take a moment to look around you for something that is really special. Beautiful or interesting or unusual.
 
How many special things are around you all the time that you take for granted?  Take a moment to admire, appreciate and enjoy things in your world, several times a day.
 
You are creating your life!  Choose your thoughts, your words, your actions and your feelings and create a life you truly LOVE living!  Decide today that this is the best day of your life!

40 Days to Make 2017 THE Year. Day 27- Receive!

“Until we can receive with an open heart, we’re never really giving with an open heart. When we attach judgment to receiving help, we knowingly or unknowingly attach judgment to giving help.”
Brene Brown
 
(Focus on 2017 – for reminder instructions see blog or last week’s mail. Basically, read and practice these every day; transform your life in 40 days)
 
 
Being in the flow of abundance is just as much about receiving as it is about giving.  You cannot only breath out, but must also breath in. You cannot serve from an empty vessel.  
 
So get in the habit of receiving graciously!  Receive compliments with grace. Let your friend buy you lunch or a cup of coffee.  Celebrate your own deserving by noticing how often the world wants to give to you.
 
You are creating your life!  Choose your thoughts, your words, your actions and your feelings and create a life you truly LOVE...
