You Are Who You Are…

The experiences of your life, both good and bad, shape who you are.  To feel anger, sadness, regret, or hatred about those experiences means you must feel some level of those feelings about yourself.

In order to truly love and feel good about yourself, you must acknowledge and accept the negative experience as much as the positive ones.

 You do not need to be thrilled about them and you don’t have to dwell on or repeat them, but you do need to embrace and be grateful for the lessons they taught you, for without them you would not be you!

Thank You Thursday

A few weeks ago, I suggested you write a “Thank you” letter to someone from your past, Thank You Thursday – 8/25/16.

This week, I would like to encourage you to write a letter to someone from your future: a mentor, a spouse, a child, a boss, etc.

I know, you think I’ve gone batty.  “How can I write a letter to someone I have not yet met?”, you ask.   That is what makes this exercise so fun.  You get to create a future success story for yourself and express gratitude for it.  It is visualization on paper!

As I, and many others, have said before, expressing gratitude is the best way to manifest more things to be grateful for.  If you want to succeed in reaching a goal the best and fastest way to do it is to be grateful for it, NOW!  Not when it eventually manifests.

Think about one of your goals.  Who do you need in your life to help you reach that goal?

  • If you want to succeed in business, you need a mentor to help educate and guide you.
  • If you want to be married, you need a spouse.
  • If you want to be a parent, you need a child.
  • If you want to lose weight, you need a personal trainer.

As you write your letter, remember there are NO LIMITS to who you can write to and what you can achieve.  This letter is pure imagination and visualization.  Be grand and bold!  If you want Oprah to mentor you, thank Oprah!  The point is to have fun and feel the joy and gratitude of the achievement.

Here is an example of a letter I wrote:

To my Mentor,
There are not enough words in the English language to “Thank you” for all that you have done for me.  Your guidance, support, and belief in my dream played a crucial part in success.
If you had told me just 18 months ago that I would have achieved my goal of being able to work from anywhere in the world on my schedule, I would have told you you we crazy.
But today, I am writing you this letter from a beach in Hawaii, where I have been everyday for the past week.  Each morning I awake, go to the gym, have breakfast by the pool and spend a few hours working with clients via email and Skype.  In the afternoon, I stroll on the beach or take surfing lessons.  Some days I work for a few hours in the evening and other days I do not.  It is my choice.
I have the amazing opportunity to live this life because of you!!!!!
You devoted a portion of your life to taking me under your wing and helping me create my dream life.  You challenged me to step outside of my usually narrow boundaries and take chances.  I could only have done this, because I knew you would not let me fail.
 You cheered my successes and supported me when things did not go as planned.  You never judged or criticized. 
Of all of the gifts you gave me, the most beautiful and impactful is, you helped me gain my self-worth, self-respect, and confidence.  You were my guiding light through thick and thin.  You showed me my potential (actually, you forced me to seek out and find my potential) and you encouraged me to share it with the world.
For all of this I am truly grateful.  
Thank you for making me and my life what there are today!
In love and gratitude, 
Rachel

Playing with Your Goals

In previous posts, I have encouraged you to take action toward your goals, ( Are You Doing Everything You Can to Achieve Your Goals?Take Action)  But sometimes, it can be difficult to figure out what action to take.

To help you conquer this barrier and take the action you need to achieve your goal, I have developed this little game.

What you need:

  • 20-30 blank index cards
  • Colored markers or pens
  • Your list of Achievements for 2016-2017

How to play:

  • On the blank side of an index card, write down 1 of the goals from your list.
  • On the lined side, write out 4-5 actions you can take to achieve that goal.
    • Actions can include: 3-4 minutes spent visualizing the goal as already achieved, making a phone call, purchasing a web address, doing internet research associated with your goal, finding a class, joining a social club, or going to the gym.  Think of as many actions as you can, big and small.  Use an extra card if necessary.
  • Repeat this process for each of your goals.
  • Every morning when you wake up, shuffle the cards, and select one.
  • Read the goal out loud, then pick 1 of the actions to perform that day.
  • Before the end of the day, TAKE that ACTION!

The Rules:

  • Create actions that will motivate and challenge you to achieve your goal.
  • Don’t take the easy way out each time you select a goal.  For example, visualizing the goal as achieved is an effective and worthy action, but that alone will not be enough to propel you to your goal.
  • Whichever action you choose that day, YOU MUST TAKE IT!

 

This game is a lot of fun and can truly keep you on track toward reaching your goals.  Have fun and enjoy playing.  Making the journey to your goal exciting and entertaining is the best way to ensure you make it all of the way.

Give it a try and leave your feedback and results in the comment section below.

Thank You Thursday

Welcome to “Thank You Thursday.”

This week I would like to focus on being grateful for each and every day.

When was the last time you expressed gratitude for the present moment or day?

Frequently we express thanks for a material possession, a person in our lives, or a past experience.  We may even give thanks for something that we hope to have in the future.  However, most people I know do not take time to reflect on the current day or moment and say, “Thank You.”

This week I would like to give you an affirmation to help remind you to be grateful, NOW.

For the next week, repeat this affirmation throughout your day.  Make the photo a screen saver, put the affirmation in your phone as a reminder, or schedule time during your day to read and even speak the affirmation.  Choose a fun and creative way to direct your attention to being grateful.

Keep a journal of the experiences you have over the next week or share them in the comment section below.

Please, LIKE, us on Facebook.  Thank You!
