Why Not have a little fun, it’s summer and usually the best way to change your mindset and Get Happy is by giving yourself permission!

I read an article the other day, that one of the reasons why American’s are unhappy, is because we feel confined in our choices. Stress often leads to feeling confined and boxed in where our personality can lean toward old habits, default modes and the good ole comfort zone. Resulting in a feeling of “stuck” in our jobs, finances, health and community.

Allow me to give you the crayon within your mind to color outside the lines and throw out the “confining” box! It’s time for you to play, imagine, feel good and think positive! Truly it is your time to shine. So here are a few ways to do that…

– Give yourself permission with knowing you deserve happiness and get to choose it when ever you want!

– Give yourself permission, to dance, laugh, get the blood flowing in your veins and just ALLOW.

– Give yourself permission to wear whatever you want or even nothing at all, oops. Point being, get comfortable in your own skin, take a bubble bath, relax and get in the water, it washes away the cobwebs of the mind and cleanses the old for the new to come in.

– Give yourself permission to visualize what your heart desires. Imagine it happening, right now, close your eyes and see this happy event taking place in your life. Yes, YOU! It can happen for you. So many people believe good only happens to others but not them. Guess what, you’re up, it’s your turn this time for good and great things to take form and happen. You are more than you ever imagined!! Just give yourself permission, it works!

– Give yourself permission to just stop. Stop the old thinking and self- doubt. This dampens your spirit. We need your spirit, your spirit is here to help others with your talent and your gifts. Don’t deny yourself or others of what you have to offer because when you do, it smothers your joy. Change things up and go IN- JOY!
Love you to the moon and back! – Jackie : )

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

If there is one thing we can’t get back, it’s time! Which is why the best time to make a positive change toward designing a life plan is now.  

As business leader Jim Rohn states,” If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.” 

Answer the following questions and you will experience the mind shift that encourages the embodiment of change matched with true meaning, which creates your life plan. 

What is your ideal life? Then ask yourself why? When you know your why you are in touch with your core values and this is what places action behind your desires. 

How do you want to spend your days? 

How much money do you want to make a month? 

What makes you come alive? 

What do people often ask of you? 

What is your zone of genius? 

Recognize that life does not happen to us, it happens for us. Therefore, it is an opportunity to make clear and decisive choices. You may not believe this to be true, however; I am here to prove to you how you make an impact in this world in the most profound yet natural manner of just being you. How? It’s called the power lead. The power lead is a positive opening that you often hear as an introduction to a speech, TV show, news heading. You get the idea.  

The more positive your power lead, the more ability you have to determine the outcome you intend. In today’s world, the negative surrounds us. So, a positive power lead is the reverse of what you might expect. Such as: With all this rain I find it so cleansing and refreshing don’t you? Or there is no other way to go, but up! 

When you think and lead in the positive, you are actually locking in a positive outcome.  

 
A client, Tracy, recently shared with me how she failed the mortgage exam twice and only had one more chance left to pass. She was so upset that she was laid off from her corporate job and looking for a new one the past six months and decided to switch gears, at age 60 and go into the mortgage industry. 

Her life plan was to no longer work in an office and have the freedom to work from home and stay in her dream location with the love of her life. We focused on locking in her positive outcome and put a date to her outcome. The process reversed her “stinkin thinkin” and she was able to pass the mortgage exam and celebrate her new life plan.  

 
As the CEO of your destiny, you have the power to create your life plan and determine your Technicolor vision. The cream will rise to the top with your power lead, in every area of your life, when you practice it and place action and discipline to your desired outcome.

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

Are you ready to claim your happiness, no matter what?

Chapter 8 Happiness is an Action
Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

You can create a kick-butt life at any age. After all, age is just a number. No matter what stage in life you are in, whether you just graduated college, a new mom, in transition, re-building, reinventing, empty nesting , coming out of retirement, divorce or caregiving, you have the capacity to express your uniqueness no matter how old you are. It is inspiring to learn the endeavors of all ages and to realize that it’s never too late for your talent and offering to the world.

Just imagine how you can create an exceptional life and be happy, no matter how old you are. The possibilities are endless. However, more often than not, many stop themselves from creating their dream usually trumped by the  inner critic, not feeling worthy, pure exhaustion or just getting lost in the stress of life  preventing forward motion then giving up on your dream.

A no matter what, I CAN attitude to never, ever giving up on your dream is the mind set that , honestly, propels you forward.  GHZMENTAL WELL-BEING

Did you know that there are no walls between you and your dreams?

There is opportunity for you to get busy and create what you believe or be an ingredient toward a happy accident, as this is where creativity meets opportunity. You never know what life may throw your way , stuff happens and can lead you into a totally new direction, has that  ever happened to you? Well, it happened to me, when my company car reeled out of control one fateful day and slowly stopped in front of two eight -foot Buddha statues outside a furniture store. This was the Universe awakening and re-directing me to my hopes, dreams and inspirations which I put on hold for too long. In fact, had this not happened, I would not have written a bestseller book or mentally, spiritually and emotionally met up with my truth and claimed the burning desire that has led to my inner happiness. What may appear as a wall could actually be an invitation for you to gather your strength and jump over it! Inspiration is the fuel that ignites the fire within, once you tap into it, become unafraid of it, you become unstoppable. Just see how many people have done this and you can too!       ghzemotional well-being

Proof that Inspiration cannot be Ignored:

Age 102 – Australian Mini Munro marries a man younger than her, Dudley Reid, age 83.

Age 90 – Nelson Mandela is on the cover of Time magazine, featuring his “Eight Secrets of Leadership”.

Age 80 – Jessica Tandy wins her first Oscar for Best Actress for her role in “Driving Miss Daisy”.

Age 71 – Fashion icon Coco Chanel debuts the Chanel suit.

Age 64 – Louis Armstrong finishes his version of “Hello Dolly”.

Age 52 – Leonardo da Vinci completes the Mona Lisa.

Age 49 – Julia Child writes her book “Mastering the Art of French Cooking”.

Age 36 – Albert Einstein proclaims his general theory of relativity. The fields of astronomy and physics will never be the same

Age 25 – Charles Lindbergh becomes the first person to fly across the Atlantic Ocean in his famous plane, The Spirit of St. Louis.

Age 17 – Serena Williams is the first African-American tennis player to win a Grand Slam singles title since Arthur Ashe.

Age 13 – Bill Gates writes his first computer program.

Age 10 – Tatum O’ Neal wins the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in “Paper Moon”, co-starring her father, Ryan O’Neal

Get Happy at any Age Inspiration Challenge

Here we are 6 months into the year, time has flown by and it may be time to ask yourself; What do I want? And how I am going to do it? Let’s drill down a bit and really get into the heart of the matter. Write down what gives you meaning on one side of a piece of paper and on the other side what gives you pleasure. Circle the ones that really make you excited and what you yearn for, right now. On a second piece of paper write out all the circled words and notice all your desires sit at the corner of meaning and pleasure which is the pathway to your happiness. And guess what? It has nothing to do with how old you are!

My challenge to you, between now and October  is to mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually align with doing what makes your soul happy. And I invite you to join me on my happiness and well-being journey while I begin to celebrate turning the age of 50! I can hardly believe it, myself. However, I feel 27  and am just getting started on my dreams and inspirations.  Feeling young and having never felt better , I am often mistaken for age 37. So, why is that? Because I AM HAPPY and incorporate a no matter what attitude. Part of this invitation is to learn the top secrets to feeling young, feeling better and gaining energy, so don’t hesitate.

One of my secrets to happiness and success is to meditate and visualize that my dream has already occurred. You see, when you learn to place your happiness first, success is sure to follow!  GHZSpiritual Well-Being

It feels satisfying to be able to control various aspects of our lives. We can, to an extent, control what classes we take in school, where we live, where we apply meditationto work, what we eat for lunch and even what logic we put behind our arguments. So why does it seem like something as personal as our emotions are so often out of our range of control?

Salon’s interview with neuroscientist Richard Davidson revealed the science behind how happiness and health are connected and why emotions can actually be more controllable than you may think. Although the connection between health and happiness is a relatively new one, he stresses the relationship between the brain and the body’s biological processes. Those with more resilient emotional styles were even shown to have stronger immune systems.

From experience, we know that improvement comes from practice and training. It’s hard to be good at something the first time you try, whether it has to do with sports, academics, occupation, relationships, or life changes. This can be applied to our emotions too. The term “neuroplasticity” refers to the ability of our brain to change and adapt according to our experiences. This means that nothing is set in stone, no matter what age group you fall into.

If the routine that we repeatedly follow does not produce the results we want, why would we expect new results the next time we do it? Being different requires thinking differently and doing something different! For example, not many people see the true value of meditation, and they brush it off without considering that it might have the potential to bring change into their lives. It is a type of mental exercise that can center our thoughts and emotions and give us a new way to start training them and controlling them. Not only does it bring a sense of peace and calming, but it also encourages good habits within the mind.

But just as each person is unique, so is their emotional style and way of learning new things. We’re not suggesting that you attempt to completely change yourself as a person or get rid of any of the emotions that you have already. Rather, use new techniques to get in touch with your unique emotional style, and start thinking of emotions as something that can intentionally be refined and developed. Don’t be afraid to take control of your life! By developing your brain, you can improve your emotional stability, and by improving your emotional stability, you can boost your health. Never stop yourself from being healthy, happy, and in control! Do what feels good, even if it’s a little scary, chances are you will survive with a smile.

How to be happier  We see it in the blossoming trees, in the blooming flowers, and in the flowing rivers. Spring is here, and it is all around us. The seasons and the nature have all made noticeable transformations…have you? What constructive changes have you made to your life lately? I suppose you wouldn’t have to change a single thing if you are completely satisfied with all aspects of your career, your education, your relationships, and yourself, but I can’t say I know many people who are. And if you’re not completely satisfied, what’s stopping you from trying something new?

“If you want something you’ve never had,

you must be willing to do something you’ve never done.” 

–Thomas Jefferson

 

We  waste too much time finding excuses for why we haven’t made adjustments in our lives. It is too easy to use busyness as justification for becoming complacent with our situations—and I can’t say I haven’t fallen victim to this as well. Perhaps we don’t have blocks of two or three hours that we can dedicate to the sole purpose of bettering ourselves; however, we all have smaller blocks of ten or fifteen minutes scattered throughout our day that we haven’t used to their full potential. Instead of using this time to make yet another creative excuse, use it to form new habits or to reconnect with those you have lost touch with. Spend five minutes in the morning packing a salad for lunch instead of hitting drive-through on your lunch break; spend ten minutes on your way home from work or while you’re cooking dinner to call up an old friend or family member who you haven’t spoken to in a while; spend one and a half minutes at night remembering to floss before you go to bed. By improving ourselves, we gain confidence, strength, and positivity that will reflect on the other characteristics of our lives.

Drastic changes that are difficult to maintain are considerably easier to give up on. The most successful goal-maker is one who sets achievable goals. So don’t start something that you know you will give up on in a week; find something meaningful that you want to change for the better, and change it gradually. Most importantly, don’t be complacent. If we change our standards to fit our current condition, we will never find out what we are fully capable of. You don’t have to wait until New Years to find something about yourself that you want to change for the better. Spring is a time of renewal, so spring forward in your life and renew your energy by taking a positive step toward improvement.

Addendum: As we face fear in times of tragedy, our hearts go out to those suffering and experiencing a loss at this time. You are not alone and our hearts go out to you and your loved ones.

Do you ever wonder why things just are not going your way toward happiness? You’re making changes, or trying to, yet you keep hitting the same walls and obstacles. We have all been there and sometimes this calls for an awakening. But first we need to recognize that the tail we are chasing continues to lead to the same place, I term this as a life rut. A life rut can go on for months or even years. Often we choose to be in this life rut or perhaps on a subconscious level you are fearful of change.  I say, No More Excuses, it’s time to get off the life rut bus and onto the speedway to happiness.

When my Dad passed away, I was heartbroken but kept a strong front. Inside I was hurting and found it difficult to look at a photograph of him without feeling completely crushed inside. A couple of years passed before I realized how unfulfilled my life felt. Sometimes, we start to think , “oh well, guess this is the way it is supposed to be”. Uh, no, I don’t think so, not if you are the CEO of your life ! The question is, have you been ACTING like the CEO of your life or have you been putting off the feelings of yesterday that you choose not to address with the same fears that are holding you back? At that time in my life,  I was choosing to squash my feelings. As Dr. Phil would say, how’s that working for you?  Afterall, recognizing and dealing with your feelings/fears is an act of loving yourself, yes?

Get Happy Tips:

1. Unlock your feelings :Recognize your feelings, feel them, express them out loud to a support person, or seek a therapist, counselor, mentor as a sounding board.

2. Find your catharsis: Determine what makes you feel in a groove of insightfulness. Is it drawing, running, surfing, blogging,  journaling, yoga, dancing, cleaning, building, creating ? Choose to move your body and your mind into a state of fluidity. Get your juices flowing !  Exertion of your self  and your brain is the physical act of moving your life in a forward position instead of keeping it in neutral.

3. Do the opposite of what you have been doing. Set new boundries with your self and others and start acting like the CEO. Take back your power and choose to live in your freedom. This is a process of letting go of your old paradigm to begin anew.

4. Practice JOY. What I mean by JOY is to Just Own Yourself. Accept all of you, the good bad and the ugly. You are not perfect yet everything in life is just temporary. We live in a society of constant change. If your not in your JOY, you will be run down, burnt out and fried. When you practice JOY, you become the decision maker, you set the shots and you also live by them.

5. Delegate. The art of being a consistent leader is delegating. The trait of a good leader is asking for help. You cannot do it all. So, go to the professionals who can help you make sense of the road your on and help sort out the  trail you intend to blaze.

6. Take a cup of courage and no this does not mean experimenting with new flavored vodkas, although tempting. The rut bus might seem safe compared to the speedway to happiness of going outside of your comfort zone. When you travel outside of your comfort zone, you will begin to realize that you are not only way more capable than you give yourself credit but you will begin to have way more fun, even if that means making a few mistakes. Mistakes are lessons and stepping stones that get you one step closer to redefining your happiness and success.

Daily Quote: The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. If you do that, you’re in control of your life. If you don’t, life controls you. Tony Robbins

World Happy Day was February 11, 2012 .  On this special day , on 7 continents, 60 countries and over 600 locations the screening of the “HAPPY” movie was seen in hundreds of locations with fantastic attendance. This was an exceptional conscious awareness screening, in which to build upon a new revolution of personal wellness and happiness in a collective manner. Hence, surrounding yourself with positivity encourages a new tipping point toward happiness.

We are all vibrationally connected in some way or form and many of us are effected by someone who is struggling.  When we travel with low vibration, we attract fear, worry, anxiety and a debilitating rut can take over. Often it is  a certain someone, as I term an earth angel, who crosses your path that offers some relief. In most cases, your situation may not be as bad as it seems but because you are feeling bad about self, you perceive a “no way out”, type of view. This is very common and you are not alone.

I came upon a situation the other day with someone whose low vibration got the best of her. She was upset, crying and felt alone. Her life seemed to come to a halt and she was faced with looking at herself and dealing with pain that she had been suppressing. She had not been able to find a job, has little money and is exhausted. In truth, she is a very capable, smart and an experienced professional whose dealing with a broken heart. Exhaustion is a sign of holding back your emotions, let them out, cry, scream, talk, converse and let it go. We are humans where toxic emotions can buildup and send us into a downward spiral. Releasing your emotions is a cathartic effort that in hindsight will relieve the inner pressure, where acceptance resides.

Often when the Universe takes you to it, you can get through it.  A death or loss of your identity , at first can be scary. You may be scared all of the time. How you react to this is key and pivotal to moving forward in your life. When you are faced with a major change, your life takes a new path. Although it’s difficult to see what that path looks like, what’s important is in knowing your being asked to reach a higher level of yourself. A level that feels like a stretch and requires a cup of courage for you to reach. However, this higher calling is already within you. You have been prepared for this all along by each and every encounter, experience and adversity in your life up to this point.

Once you take that cup of courage and begin to feel that your fears are illusions, you become more capable than you realize. Your passion is exuded and you’re a magnet for all your hopes and dreams.  Life and the small treasures and people in it become crystal clear. Don’t give up, fight back ! Encouraging a new point of your happiness is in your reach, a new level of happiness is  the tipping point in the direction of your higher self.

Weekly Quote: In memory of Whitney Houston

If you sing alone in your shrine, the vibrations return to you as a reaction. But in community singing, what you have is not a reaction but a wave of vibrations. They enter into the atmosphere and purify the polluted air.
Sri Sathya Sai Baba

HAPPY Tools:

A “Letting Go ” method for Life Enhancement: Sit for ten minutes each day in quietness. Focus on every area of your body. Allow for each area to relax. As you breathe in the positive and exhale the negative, focus on smiling. Your eyes, smile, your face smiles , your stomach smiles, your liver smiles, your muscles smile, your back smiles, your kidneys smile and your heart smiles. When you enter the world from your smiling meditation, your vibration will be an all time high. Watch and observe how good things will come to you and you to good. ( More techniques are available in Jackie’s upcoming book, Get Happy and Create a Kick Butt – Life, A Creative Toolbox for Rapidly Activating the Life You Desire”, out in June 2012.

Many have asked about the “HAPPY” movie that was screened on World Happy Day. I highly recommend this wonderful journey with learning about the science and true stories about happiness. The “HAPPY” movie in DVD can be purchased at Lululemon Athletica yoga stores or at http://www.thehappymovie.com. If you prefer to download it to your computer , it is now on itunes.
