The world is very abundant and the more you realize this the more you will attract what is available to you. The trick starts with your mindset. Why is that? Well, how do you get results? You do the work. You can’t do the work without having the knowledge. And even with the knowledge it doesn’t matter if you don’t have the skill set. Yet even with the skill set the right mindset is all that matters. Mindset + Skillset + Knowledge + Work = Results. No more. No less.

So before I share the secrets to unlock your abundance, you first must have an idea of what abundance means to you. You may define it as money, love, health, or personal fulfillment. The fact is all of those define abundance. To unlock your personal abundance focus upon the ONE that stands out to you the most.

Secret Number One: Your subconscious mind is what holds the key to your abundance. This is where your emotions live in the now. Your emotions may be hindered or blocked by the seven year old kid in you and are living with an old recording from years past. Perhaps you have a belief system where you have to prove yourself in order to make a good income. Or you have blocked love from your life unconsciously, based on a past hurt. The first mindshift to uncover your blocks is to learn to feel limitless. This is how you retrain the subconscious to reach success.

Secret Number Two: Get out of routine living. Routine living limits you holistically. Making small changes in your daily routine expands your mind and your body to feel new sensations and experience life beyond your four corners. If abundance is not in your four corners then it is time for change; start with a different walk or drive to work. Perhaps take a new yoga class and refrain from technology until after you have had breakfast versus as soon as you wake up. Again those actions encourage feeling limitless and forms new positive habits.

Secret Number Three: To retrain the subconscious mind it all ends and begins with images. Our subconscious mind is like a camera, it takes on visuals that encourage feelings that become ingrained into a want or need. Advertisers have mastered the art of images and know how to push the subconscious buttons. You too can master this toward creating the abundance you desire through images. Let’s say you want more prosperity as your goal. Gather images that have meaning to you and instill the feeling of prosperity. Place those images on your nightstand, your desk, your fridge, and your walls. Look at them often and especially at night before you go to bed. At night is when the subconscious goes to work for you and creates new neural pathways based on the images and feelings you have consumed.

Lastly, action is the key to success where “abundance is not something we acquire it is something we tune into.” – Wayne Dyer

Follow your Joy

At one time or another, we all have experienced life purpose fatigue . Fatigue is defined as extreme tiredness, typically resulting from mental or physical effort or illness. Life purpose fatigue is when the stacks of career and self-development books, coaching seminars and chasing your tail have left you weary and confused about your life’s path. These are obvious signs that you have attempted what you thought was a good idea but with less than happy results. At some point, its time to get serious about what your true heart desires. And usually when you are so sick and tired of being sick and tired that you finally decide to get serious, well that’s the hope anyway. There is no reason for you to be struggling , scraping and holding back from your passions, is there ? Fatigue keeps us in the negative and holds us back with low energy. Conversely, the “just go for it” attitude is what amps your brain and shifts thoughts to a more positive and higher energy which zaps a weary type of thinking. However, there may be more happening on a subconscious level causing life purpose fatigue.

Fear, apprehension and perfection are feelings that live deep in our subconscious, most often born from a critical parent or a not good enough attitude imposed upon us as a child. Managing the process of working through this starts with self-forgiveness, by stopping the negative thoughts and affirming that you are good enough! Although this process can take some time it’s important to understand that the etiology of not feeling good enough may very well have started from someone you love, who perhaps was acting out of their own subconsciousness. Albeit, this does not excuse their actions, yet it gives you the reason to begin forgiving this person in your own heart and mind. I suggest the meditation tracks of Jack Kornfield Phd., an excellent way to begin letting go and accelerate forgiveness , should you struggle with the art of forgiveness.

Here are 5 coaching tips for ways to get happy and improve your life’s direction to rid life purpose fatigue:

Perspective: We are living in a time of constant change. Although you may have started in a direction that was once meaningful, your market, customer needs or personal desires change as well. Spend some time researching on your passion, ask questions, google it, visit or interview people related to your passion and dig deeper. In addition, get your hands dirty and enjoy what’s organically related to your passion, you learn more by doing.

Acceptance: You are exactly where you are supposed to be right now. Enjoy the moment and take it all in. Allow to feel and learn as opposed to analyzing and pushing toward something that may not really feel right or where you have a half-belief ( not the whole truth or story). Accept where you are right now and give your self-credit for all that you have accomplished thus far.

Patience: You may have given yourself a year to attain a goal for yourself or your business. A lot can happen in a year and you may only have reached three-quarters of the way to meet your goal. It’s okay, you are moving forward, in a direction where your traction is not a warp speed occurrence. All good things happen in good time or divine timing. Have patience with yourself. And remember, when you have a goal, then there is no failure.

Deliberate Creation:When you place action consistently into a cause , project or dream you will end up with results, no matter what. Maintaining a  no matter what attitude and belief behind your actions will always lead to gold. Keep practicing, if you are not reaching results, tweak what you’re doing until you do reach results. It’s ok to make changes or develop a Plan B when Plan A is no longer a fit.

Accountability: Having a plan is easy. Placing it into action is the hard part. One must never, ever give up and the best approach is having a buddy, coach or business partner where accountability for getting sh*t done will happen, each and every week!

On a personal note, if someone has not told you lately; YOU are smart, powerful and talented and this is relevant to whichever passion you choose to express !

TODAYS QUOTE: Self-worth comes from one thing – thinking that you are worthy.  ~Wayne Dyer

Weekly Quote: “If all you focus on is money you will have a hard time getting any. Focusing on the money only is like focusing on the apple, but forgetting the seed. The seed of TRUE abundance is not money, but doing what you love. Love is the strongest energy in the Universe and if you step away from the life that you know and begin to step towards a life of doing what you love, you will be planting very powerful seeds. After enough time and care the seeds you plant will begin to blossom and bare amazing fruit. Money and many other forms of abundance will literally chase you. Focus on what makes you happy, take risks in that direction and don’t let anyone tell you it isn’t possible. Look to those who inspire you and ask yourself what would they do? These folks know about true abundance, take note.” Jackson Kiddard

Why fit in, when you were born to stand out. Dr. Seuss

” Creativity is the life force behind all that we do.” by John Clease. This quote , I feel is the epitomy of the new mental method in which we as a society are headed. As an artist and business professional, I find myself tapping into the creative side far beyond the artistic process I relied upon as a natural talent. Not sure about you, but my creative muscle is being stretched and squeezed in other areas of my life now more so than ever. Which brings me to the revelation of innovation defined as new things, ideas or method of approach.

According to Daniel Pink, author of  A Whole New Mind, Where Right Brainers will Rule the World, our economy is exiting from the Information Age and shifting into the Conceptual Age , a time where the creative types will reign. If you believe this to be true than perhaps your needs and desires may begin to shift as well. If they have not already ? Perhaps even your feelings of what used to make you happy have shifted toward a more realistic or palatable perspective. So what does all this mean ? Reaching the edge of what computers can do that humans no longer need to has also brought to light what areas are irreplaceable. We know computers cannot generate beauty, stories, moments or touch the soul that humans touch . Computers are a delivery process not a feeling generator. So just when you thought your right brain skills remain shelved , its time to dust off your brushes, pens and nurturing side because you will just be getting started and appreciated for your creativity. However, there is a glitch. Creativity is just part of the formula of innovation or change. The key is to add in strategy. Strategy is the why, the function behind the design. Once you figure out the why, you could be well on your way to a richer path where perhaps your happiness will be redefined and of course the wealth will follow. The genius seed will need to grow and patience is part of this process.

If your intuition is telling you to finish that project , redesign a function or birth your idea into action now, you are already a winner just by starting ! When you begin to make first steps with a different attitude, your goals will be different as well, hence the method by which you were operating will then change. A domino effect takes shape, not without a few mishaps or mistakes along the way, but no worries. Just tweak or change your goal, attitude and or approach til it feels right and the results begin to take form. It’s usually when you are in the middle of processing that your Aha moments occur. Part of living a rich life is to incorporate play into your life. Many of us are void of this in our personal as well as professional lives. The process of play enriches those Aha moments and stirs the creative juices. There is no reason for you not to be able to pop your power on the planet right now, just by playing alone.

Think of ways you could add play to your work or personal life. Perhaps have a fun contest at work or with a project, do a field trip once a month or simply go dancing. Whatever it is make it different from what you have done before. Invite in the new so the old can be released. You may be surprised as to where a  new path could lead .
