Life purpose

Feb

2018

A life best lived is a life by design. When you start giving your life dimension, color, objectives, purpose and strategies the results can be absolutely epic. Today I share this with you knowing we have choices. The choice to be happy, the choice to share our gifts and the choice to live in freedom based on the thoughts we think, the feelings we feel and the actions prompted by the process of choice.

Several years ago I walked away from a six-figure career to save my own life. The work schedule and goals in my corporate career was literally killing me. Between no sleep, driving or flying constantly, never home to enjoy family or community events, working 60 -hour workweeks and meeting huge million dollar goals quarterly. One fateful day when my company car malfunctioned on the freeway in LA, with no power steering or brakes, life was literally falling apart in seconds. It was this life altering experience that everything came into focus. I call this my rude-awakening. This jolted me out of my denial of feeling unfulfilled, uninspired and fatigued into feeling alive, courageous and motivated. Those split seconds I realized that I wanted to live a deeper more authentic and joyful life and create a life around a career versus the old wage slave paradigm that I believed looked like happiness and success.

The beautiful sacred truth, – that I have a choice about how I experience my life – filled my heart with hope and forever changed the trajectory of my life. Today it fuels my life as an Author, Lifestyle and Business Strategist and Motivational Speaker, where I am dedicated to inspiring professionals, especially women, toward redefining her happiness and success and make the most powerful choices for the greatest impact in freedom, income and passion for life. Everyday at every moment we have the ability to be our own happiness hero. Even in the midst of darkness, when everything is falling apart, you have the power of choice. Every so often we each require a nudge or reminder that we are powerful, talented, amazing, worthy and loveable enough to create our life and ourselves based on what your soul is calling.

At some point or another a pivotal turn will take place in your life or career, which will forever change your life and your role in it. In order to strive for a remarkable life, you have to decide that you want one. So are your ready to launch your big, beautiful, creative and juicy life?

Implement these key actionable steps: Your starting point is the answer to the one question you must ask and listen to: What is your heart’s true desire? Write your heart’s true desire here:___________________________.

When you’re feeling ready, follow the steps of deliberate creation and enjoy the power of the process in which you are immersed. There are no weird coincidences. What is meant to be always happens — and you have the power to deliberately create an ideal outcome. Your success is indicated by the power of your will to overcome obstacles with the narrowing down of the areas of interest. Based on focused intention, we often lose focus on less important areas so as to focus intently on the one.

The more we recognize that we are each responsible for our own happiness, the closer we are to seeing that our happiness powers the path to improved relationships, careers, finances, and health, as well as assists with other issues and areas of life.

 

To recognize how powerful your happiness can be, we simply need to adopt a new mindset by activating the following steps:

Follow Your JOY – It may not feel like it, but your joy exists within you and it is a clear path to what your heart truly desires. When you are listening and acting upon your joy, your ego does not communicate “I can’t, shoulda, woulda,” thoughts and destructive self-talk excuses behind your feelings of unworthiness. These feelings become non-existent when you place zero energy behind your ego thoughts. When you “Just Own Yourself (JOY),” you become the CEO of YOU and fall in love with expressing your MOXIE.

Ignite Imagination – Give yourself permission to imagine what your life looks and feels like beyond what it is now. It’s ok — even great — to daydream. Just BE and ALLOW yourself to have some fun with your own psyche. By doing so, you unlock the keys to the treasure within and let go of any obstacles standing in your way. Imagine the emotional or physical pain you have been suffering with is now part of your past, and no longer exists. Even if this is just a brief respite that lasts a few minutes, it is a relief to your mind and body that you can feel good and pain free, one step at a time. You are being guided by your imagination when you begin to feel and recognize the endless possibilities within and around your world.

Deliberate Creation – This is the conscious, intentional focus of marrying your desired intention with vision, and strategically acting in your external world where you co-create with Spirit to manifest an outcome. As you collaborate with your inner creator by putting action behind positive intent and matching your positive feeling with positive action, you become an unstoppable magnet for the continuous flow of positive change.

Creativity: is a component of the life force for all that we do. Your ability to create remains infinite through choice. From the moment you rise in the morning, you create your thoughts, your day, how you present yourself to the world and the quality of your life. Decision making is the number-one trait that supports being the champion of your life. When you choose to tap into the positive life forces within, you intensify your vibration and become a force of power beyond your imagination.

Have a Cup of Courage – Your dream is usually outside of your comfort zone. It takes courage to walk a new path you have not navigated before. Have a cup of courage a day. Sip-by-sip, your vision is sharper and your dream becomes attainable. Courage is a more productive avenue when you reverse the energies of your fear.

Practice a Growth Mindset – This is the ability to deliberately change an old perspective with a new, positive action. Action creates change, movement creates truth. Choosing happiness every day in today’s complex world is not just a choice; it’s a lifestyle. By re- training the brain, you can develop this new power practice. Decades of research relate the choice toward happiness to improving your health, increasing blood flow to the brain, and encouraging an enhanced ability to make decisions. When your mind and body feel good, you become spiritually in sync with your divine purpose, and your life becomes more meaningful and authentic.

Employ Creative Tools – These tools become the catalyst for making change here and now. Many people believe that change occurs with our thoughts alone. However, change may not happen even after years of psychotherapy and insightful epiphanies — although you may end up with more clarity and focus about where you are today in relation to your past. What encourages change, here and now, are tools that propel you into your future rather than analyze your past. A tool may be meditation, hiring a coach or researching a topic that piques your interest.

Reinvent an Authentic Self – The path to reinvention is a straight one from head to heart although it may be long and arduous. As you become your ultimate other or higher self, the spiritual spark that keeps you on track with your life’s purpose and in touch with your joy and passion – listening to our truth while simultaneously acting upon it may seem like peeling an onion while holding back the tears. Saying good-bye to your ego is a process of letting go of superficial attachments or illusions. Most will only dig when they know there is pure gold; you must be willing to do the work since that gold lies within your heart. Through thoughtful diligence, you can then continue on the route to happiness because the gold has revealed your authentic power. When we live in our truth, we can change the world in fascinating and magnanimous ways.

The main ingredient to a successful and fulfilled life is gratitude.
While during chaotic and troubling economic times, gratitude may seem elusive and most people often forget to practice the fact that usually what we need , we already have and for that we should be thankful everyday.
The easiest ways to make your blessings count is to count your blessings Acknowledge what is good in your life. Once you begin to do so, you will feel how powerful gratitude can be, in fact it makes what you appreciate stronger.
In the haste of our busy lives, we overlook the simple laws of gratitude, so here is a quick refresher.
1. Gratitude is all – inclusive – Good days give you happiness, bad days give you wisdom. Both are essential to growing and evolving.
Both the fortunate an unfortunate occurrences in your life leads to gratitude. You would not be the person you are today, which has contributed to the advancement of your life, by practicing gratitude.
There are no coincidences in life, the ordinary people you have met have taught you something in your life. Everything that takes place in your life everyday, take notice, it forms a new kind of perspective that may not have been there previously.

2. The tribute to the ones you lost is not grief but gratitude – Sometimes the greatest gift imaginable is the one that did not last forever. Be thankful your paths crossed and had the chance to create the most wonderful moments of your life.

3. Being present, is being grateful– everyday you wake up and take a breathe is a moment of life that leads to another moment of your life. Take solace in the privilege of walking this earth, the beauty of nature and wondrous miracles speaking to you by choosing to be present.

4. Gratitude includes giving back – Think about how much more we receive everyday then we give. The moments where a stranger let’s you go ahead of them in line at the grocery store, a friend buys you lunch or a cup of coffee for no reason other than enjoying your presence, a professional goes above and beyond to form a solution, just simply by listening and helping with his/her wisdom and knowledge.
It is in the giving and the gratitude of receiving that makes life rich.

5. Live and DO Gratitude – those who journal 5 things a day that brings them gratitude have been studied, in over a decade of scientific research, to be happier people. When you think, speak and act in gratitude, this is what brings more meaning and positivity into your life, according to Psychology Today.

When you are feeling sad, anxious, depressed or lonely, change your attitude to gratitude. Your blessings may be far greater than your perceived misfortunes. Try it!

Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” Melody Beattie

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

Welcome to the first week of Spring! Spring brings new growth. A chance to weed out the bad and make room for something beautiful. Can you visualize what that would be for you?

With this fresh new energy, where would you like to be in your health, career, finances, home life, relationships and flow of everyday life? Write it down.

Think about what makes you unique. Your wisdom, personality, life experience, strengths, background, even major life transformations are key ingredients that comprise your natural abilities, namely your gifts. I call this your genius zone.

Imagine taking your genius zone and packaging it in such a way that the life you truly desire: freedom, fulfillment, time to travel , relax and enjoy free time with family and friends is based on your terms. You can turn your genius zone into a life you not only imagine, but into reality.

Take John for example. John switched gears from being a restaurant owner for 30 years in snowy, cold Minneapolis and he and his wife moved to Florida to live a more relaxed, sunny lifestyle. John wanted to take all of his restaurant knowledge to consult with new restauranteurs and prevent them from making mistakes he experienced over the years. But he was not sure how to do this and lacked confidence in expressing his genius zone. When I worked with John, it was astounding as to how much knowledge he had in business and the value he could offer to solve the problems of current restaurant owners. Once we packaged his genius zone, he was up and running!

Here’s what John had to say ; :“I was having difficulty with my confidence as I was changing careers, and then I had the opportunity to work with Jackie Ruka. With Jackie I was able to find the self-confidence and direction to reach my full potential as I embarked on a new and exciting career. I found Jackie to be professional and extremely proficient in her coaching abilities. Jackie held me accountable and with her insightful and meaningful guidance. I am now on a path to very exciting and prosperous new career. Thank you Jackie, I will always reach out to you if my journey becomes clouded and in need of direction.” -John E Anderson, Restaurant Consultant, Author of; 101 Tips for Restaurant Success

So, what is your biggest challenge with getting your genius zone, known and heard?
And where do you want to be 6 months, 12 months or 2 years from now?

There is only one YOU, don’t let another year go by feeling the “shoulda, coulda, woulda” mindset. It’s time to place your dream front and center into a life you love!

Here’s how:

I am offering a complimentary 30 minute Conquer your Genius Zone for More Income in Less Time. Schedule a time with me today!  Slots are limited so grab yours NOW!

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.

Happy Birthday,  America!

For those of us living in the States, we are blessed to be born in a place where freedom, liberty and justice for all, reigns. Often our freedom to make choices is often constrained by our limited thinking. To know that one has the power to choose to do, be and create whatever they want is a power often abused or ignored, mainly because it appears as free. Our freedom is all part of the beauty that our founding fathers had the courage to create with walking away from an oppressive government to create a life and pursuit of happiness in a new Union, better known as the United States of America.

Therefore, we owe our freedom to our forefathers and those brave enough to protect our country’s freedom. Our freedom is a gift and comes with the challenge to embrace your freedom and make choices that align with solid core values, such as integrity, respect, trust, honesty, kindness, generosity….

The most powerful human ability is the ability to make choices. Every moment of every day we make choices. From the time we awake in the morning, the clothes we wear to the decisions at work, home, career and finances, all leads to a road of well-being. In turn, you can choose to be busy, you can choose to be stressed, you can choose your own happiness and joy, it’s genuinely up to you. No one has the power over your own happiness, as you hold the key.

According to Webster’s dictionary freedom is defined as; ” the absence of constraint of choice. “

In essence, most focus on what is limiting them, most focus on , what is in the way, what is lacking, what is not working ? How about what is working, what are you grateful for and what are the solutions available if we choose to look beyond the scarcity of our own thoughts and fears?

You see you do have the freedom to choose beyond what society would mold you to believe and begin to choose at any moment what freedom means to you: The freedom to choose…

  • to leave an abusive relationship
  • to say I love you
  • to start opening your heart and dating again
  • to create that new business
  • to write that book
  • to lose the weight
  • to stand up for yourself
  • to get divorced
  • to start a new career
  • to ditch the self- limiting thoughts
  • to stop staying in victim mode
  • to begin a new chapter of your life
  • to take a class
  • to volunteer
  • to overcome fear
  • to make new friends

It is up to us to make this country great! And to do so, you must live in your greatness and choose your highest potential, this takes action, ladies and gentlemen. Live your life by generating your own freedom and start making courageous choices. To honor this life you are honoring those who sacrificed their own lives so you could have the opportunity to shine and pursue your happiness and fulfill your potential.

It is time to make choices toward positive change and live in freedom where the action you take makes an impact and ripple effect to cause celebration to be alive!

You are supported in loved in your choices and we welcome you to be BOLD, BE BRAVE and BE YOU!

 

Cheers to your happiness,

Jackie

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

Chances are if you are reading this, you know you require some kind of change in your life, but you may not be sure what that looks like? It is perfectly natural to feel stuck in life and it is also important for you to recognize that you will soon feel unstuck. Here are 4 steps how:

1. Feel Free to be YOU–   seems simple, yet many questions, who we are, where we are going and how to get there?  It’s ok to feel this way as the only constant in life is change. When you resist change and dig your heels in you  are basically  blocking the Universe from welcoming you into newness.  By being open, one must think positively and believe in yourself. Your comfort zone is no longer working for you, so it simply is time to move on. Newness feels good, try it, jump in, the water is warm! This is what the Universe is promoting your consciousness to do! Feel free to be you and experience something new, as the core of who you are is simply love. Feel the love, affection and belief in self, you will attract this in return and who knows what good will materialize.

2. What inspires YOU? – Think through what turns you ON, makes you feel good from the inside out. If you lost that spark, the groove which prompts you with feeling alive, chances are  you stopped doing what inspires you? Instead of relying on the excuses of why you put your inspirations on the back burner, you made a choice to get lost in your “stuff”, the yuck going on in your head, external world and or life circumstances. That’s OK, simply do what inspires you and capture your groove and flow, it’s in the action that movement forms, it’s inaction that creates doubt.

Science tells us that we as humans have 50% ability to create our own happiness. This is the power of choice, choose differently, right now, to celebrate what inspires you! Perhaps it is writing, painting, water skiing, cooking, gardening, yoga, meditation? You are the master of your domain, jump on the inspiration highway and get moving!!

3. Stop Worrying – you have made it through confusing times before and you will get through whatever is happening now. Feel confident in knowing your miracle is right around the corner and a breakthrough is on its way. Everything is happening in divine order, be patient, a positive solution will take place. Turn your worry into gratitude, focus on what you are grateful for in this moment, by doing so, you create a shift within and life starts to look better than what you want to believe. Think of three things you are grateful for right now, write them down and place them in an area where you see it often.

4. Take advantage of your Life Force –  we are all given a life force, an energy that allows for our own abilities to manifest and create whatever it is we desire. Many of us take advantage of our life force by ignoring it because it’s free. If you had to pay for your life force, chances are you would not be able to afford it because it is priceless. Your life force contains you ability to; imagine, visualize, positive thoughts, creative energy, and internal ambition. The ego plays games with this force because as adults we use those programmed defense mechanisms, such as denial, projection, undoing, which block our life force. Placing us in a stand still or “I can’t do it”, “don’t know how”, “it will never work” thought process. Your life force is a natural stream of what is possible. Be open to the possibilities and tap into your life force. Try this simple process, then work backward; Visualize, create, strategize, connect and celebrate. Visualize your what’s next, place your intuition into a creative form, choose a mentor to strategize the sweet spot for making this happen for you into actionable steps, connect with the Universe  and celebrate the possibilities and breakthroughs!

2016Here we are approaching the New Year of 2016.

Dear Friends,

As the holidays wind down, it is natural to do just that, relax and enjoy some time off. Of course, as one does so, you can’t help but think about your future. As I ponder this past year and focus upon what I would like to change in my life toward sustainable well being, honesty steps in. I realize the ultimate choice is the one that we take for granted because it is free, and this is our happiness.

An amazing thing happens when you become honest with yourself, start doing what you love and what makes you happy. Life slows down; you enjoy the little things and recognize the smells around you that bring up good feelings inside, like the smell of homemade bread. Life literally slows down and you stop wishing for the weekends. Life slows down to where you appreciate the moment and begin to feel like a human being, not a human doing. A feeling of contentment, calm and joy flows and therefore life flows, like the natural movement of the waves of the ocean. You move fluidly, calmly and grateful. A veil is lifted and a new perspective is born. When you become clear, your happiness leads to a success beyond what you can imagine. An occurrence manifests when you sit in silence and determine what gives you pleasure and meaning. The pleasure of a baby smiling, the meaning it has of unconditional love. The pleasure of helping another because you can with no expected outcome giving the meaning of kindness. The pleasure of mentoring another with your wisdom offers meaning of fostering a future for our children and their children.

When honesty persists, we have the power to be persistent and no longer take happiness and freedom for granted. When you capture the feeling of your happiness you will feel the ultimate choice of painting your life’s canvas, and this will lead to you happiest year ever!

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

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
