Our Choices Determine Our Direction

Tough Decisions Ahead Road Sign

I was talking to a good friend about life and choices yesterday. Sometimes you need that kind of a conversation to get clarity on your situation and sometimes adjust your sails and correct the direction your life is headed. There is no mistake that our lives are a product of choices we have made over time. The challenge is that because these choices we make on a daily basis don’t affect our lives immediately, we don’t give it much thought.

The reality is it is those little choices we make every single day along the way that impact our lives the most. I admit I have certainly made poor choices in my lifetime. I still do. When I started to really think about it, I thought about why I made those choices? When we make choices are they for us or are we making them based on what we think we should do? Did we make them because we were afraid of what people would think? Or did we make those choices because at the time we though we had to?

Before you can start to make better choices you have to realize that our choices are entirely our own. We all live with the consequences of our choices. To be happy and move on we can’t regret those choices and we can’t go back to change them. What we can do is learn from those choices and make better ones moving forward. The good news is, it is not where you came from that is important, it is where you are going!

We can all make the choice to change our lives any time we want to. It doesn’t matter if we are younger or older believe it or not.  It was hard for me to swallow that too.

If you are having a difficult time making a difficult choice consult with a friend who understands and might have experienced something similar. Start trusting your instincts a little more often. If it feels bad, like you shouldn’t do it, then don’t! I personally struggle with that daily.

Here are some things to consider:

  1. Accept your situation, but change your outlook.
  2. Accept what happened, but change your path.
  3. Accept the choices you’ve made, make better choices moving forward.
  4. Accept people that have hurt you,  but change the people you hang around with.
  5. Accept and love yourself, but never stop learning or changing.

Some circumstances and choices we could never change, but always remember you can always change what you can simply no longer accept. Sometimes all it takes is a little help from your friends!

Are You Really Ready For Change?

change

  Are your really open to change? Do you believe you need to change? Are you coachable?

Everything depends on making a decision. Why not get your mind right and start from where you stand. Pick one thing, the most important thing, you need to work on to change that will help you to do better this year. How do you view change? Is your glass always 1/2 full or is it 1/2 empty? Having a positive outlook on everything you do, especially how you view change, is key. Here are a few tips to help you embrace change and step in to your power in 2016!

  1. Affirm your values – Recognize and remind yourself what is most important to you. What are the qualities that make you who you are? What do you need to work on this year? What is the one thing you could focus on right now that would create the greatest benefit for your business? Choose what makes the most sense to pursue now and take action.
  2. Invest in yourself – Working on yourself can be the single most important thing you can focus on this year. Investing is money and time spent that in the future will pay you back more than you put out. Make it a point to read/listen to personal development books, workshops, webinars etc. for a minimum of 1 hour per day. You can listen in the car, while you clean your house, while you take a bath. Just fit it into your daily routine.
  3. Use Positive Affirmations –  An affirmation is a positive statement about what we want to anchor in our minds. For example: I am open to accepting ALL forms of abundance the universe has to offer me. The purpose of saying this affirmation out loud every morning when you wake up and every night before you go to bed is going to help us attract more of what we want in our lives. Write it down as you say it and keep it with you where you can see it all day. I keep it taped on the bottom of my computer in my office and posted across my desk calendar. I also drive around a lot so I have it on my dashboard.
  4. Find a mentor – Your success is in direct proportion to the people you spend the most time with. Finding a mentor will help navigate your course a little bit better and maybe a little bit faster. You need someone who will be able to point out what you need to work on and will give you advice based on their experiences to help you avoid the pitfalls they may have had to deal with on their journey.

We will always have to be willing to change in order to grow. Throw yourself into new experiences, network and connect with new people. When we challenge ourselves it keeps taking us out of our comfort zone. Small changes and disciplines that you will practice on a daily basis will help you to “Step in to Your Power in 2016.” All of us can all have an amazing year if we are willing to change.

4 Affirmations to Help You Shift the Energy in Your Life and Business

How-Your-energy-affects-your-life-and-business

“My job sucks.” “The economy is terrible.” “I haven’t made a sale in weeks.”

If you can relate to even 1 of these statements, I am sorry to say but you have probably become a victim of your own negative thinking.

Have you ever considered that maybe the only thing stopping you from having a life and business you love is precisely that, negative thinking?

Truth: It’s not the lack of resources or the ‘uncool’ mom you had as a kid or the other excuses we use to justify for not having the life we want.

We all have reasons to feel bad at any time during our day. I get it, circumstances change for better or for worse in a flow of events. And naturally, we react to those circumstances just as we’ve been taught to by our families and friends.

So does how we react to any given situation matter? Your reaction is energy and energy is everything.

Everything you see, sit on, feel -the sun on your face, your kid’s laughter, your morning jog, prayer, a kiss…it is all source energy, source energy is where everything and everyone originated.

You are made up of this same energy. Its frequency can be raised or lowered according to your thoughts, feelings and beliefs. Therefore, the frequencies you send out attract similar frequencies. What you put out, you receive…ring a bell?

Each of us has an energy sequence: negative on the bottom and positive on top.

Positive energy includes:

  1. Our brilliance,
  2. Goodness,
  3. Divinity,
  4. Inspiration,
  5. Love, passion,
  6. Optimism,
  7. Happiness and
  8. Joy (our connectedness).

Negative energy includes:

  1. Anger,
  2. Depression,
  3. Sadness,
  4. Guilt,
  5. Pessimism,
  6. Sense of lack -not just from others, but from our source energy.

We go up and down on this energy sequence everyday, depending on our circumstances. We may think or say, “If only I had X, I could be or do X.” And the ultimate joke is that if we ‘get happy,’ our circumstances will change to meet us. Not so much.

According to the Waist Training Center, “moving up on your energy sequence by shifting your energy to a higher frequency and opening up to source energy connects you to your inspiration, spirituality and goodness.” It has the power to change your life immediately!

From the low end of your energy sequence you can’t even think about doing things you love, let alone muster up the energy to go out and find it.

From the high-end of your energy sequence, you’ll get new ideas, tap into your light and inspiration, connect with the people you need to see, and get into the flow of positive energy that guides you through ‘a good day’ and therefore ‘a good life.’

So, how do you flip the funk?

The first step is catching yourself. Then, you redirect your thoughts. Use positive affirmations every time you notice yourself thinking negatively. I personally love these:

  1. I am.
  2. My life is abundant.
  3. Wonderful opportunities are coming into my life today.
  4. Today is a great day because I opened my eyes.

I am pretty notorious for using humor to approach difficult situations, because I open my eyes and my eyesight is actually horrible but I like to humor it, it´s good because I´m using the outback vision protocol to better it. It’s something I learned from my father and incredibly, my children have picked up on it too. Humor is also a very effective way to raise your energy sequence, therefore making you better able to respond to any situation.

I know it sounds easier said than done, but I promise you, these small shifts will help elevate you. Remember, YOU and only YOU are responsible for the energy you bring into your life and your business.

Here’s to living fabulously Chica!
