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

Imagine your dream as a bowl of paint, let’s name your paint as your “happy” paint. You are the brush that dips into your happy paint and begin to make happy strokes within your current life canvas. The fun part is you get to choose the colors, the content and the direction in which to manifest your dream canvas. It’s ok if you make a few mistakes along the way, that’s how you know you are on the right path to your dream. The magic behind all of this is based on movement. Movement accelerates into steps, steps into leaps and leaps into accomplishments. Remember the things that happen to you do not define who you are. In short, you may feel like a victim but you can be the victor from the situation, as every episode in life has a meaning, in most cases it determines what you don’t want, so you can crystallize what you do want. What we learn from our past evolves us into our future. So are you moving toward your dream?

On the news today I listened to an inspiring story about a supposed washed up golfer who for nearly twenty years was following his passion to be a professional golfer. He started at age 25 and won the Scottish open at age 30, but on the PGA tour he had not won a tournament of the 334 PGA starts. He was out there everyday, pushing himself to be the pro he knew he could be. In the meantime, he was working side jobs to help support his wife and 2 kids and was unable to buy health insurance for his family.  At age 52, he finally decided it was time to give up his dream  and move on. Upon his dismay, all his buddies got together and supported him for one year to follow his dream, they knew he had it in him.  He was given a second chance to pick up the sport again, except this time around he realized he had to do something different  to make his dream a reality. He practiced new mind exercise everyday, hired a new swing coach, got a sports psychologist and changed his exercise routine. He said, ‘ it’s better to be decisive than right.” His attitude of perseverance and strong belief in self  won him the prestigious senior PGA championship. For twenty years Michael Allen went from “Michael Who?” to living his life calling as a big money maker in his dream of playing golf for the first time in his life.

More and more people I am meeting seem to be sharing the birth of their inner passion and taking leaps of faith, everyday. Just yesterday I met with two gorgeous ladies, both have made huge leaps of faith and are happier and more excited about life doing what they love. There is no reason why you can’t do the same? Yes, we all have to make a living, no doubt, and you will as the process is not as difficult as you think. Let’s take a look at how you can make your dream a reality and be the architect of your destiny.

1. Don’t quit your day job yet, work at it but start your passion on the side or weekends, it may take a bit longer but it will be worth it!

2. When you begin your passion, your mind and actions will expand, pretty soon you will be doing your passion!

3. Birth your idea, in some way or form, this could be a book, a workshop, a blog , partnering with an entity , all of these facets are areas that will begin the launch of your dream.

4. Everything you have learned up to this point has prepared you, even if you think your not ready, just start. There is a learning curve in anything new, but once your learning your growing and this is part of living the dream.

5. The fear that is in your way is just a mirror of our own self- doubt. Fear is like worry, a waste of time. Stop entertaining your  power on fear and start using your  power by taking a cup of courage and having a little fun dabbling in your dream and painting with your happy paint.

The sooner you start taking leaps of faith, the better you will feel. When you feel good, good things happen! When you think positively, positive things occur. Sometimes, you just have to let it all go, get messy and have some fun with your passion. So, get busy living, life is too short not to and seek a little help from your friends!

Tell us how you started your passion and how it’s going, we want to spread the happiness stroke on the world canvas? Don’t be shy.

We all have experienced rejection, some events more hurtful or painful than others. The bottom line is rejection does not define you, but rather is an invitation to a new life destiny or perhaps a higher calling .

What rejection really means is redirection. For some this may entail a new coping mechanism or way of thinking about self. For others, a self defeating existence where you  feel you are not good enough and seem to believe you have to constantly configure, argue or challenge your way through life . This is a defense to control and steer away from further rejection which unfortunately seems to attract rather than deter rejection . The process of perceiving rejection appears and sounds like a  circle of cerebral point/counter point chatter that is a battle of ego , where you seem to get in your own way . The discontent you feel about yourself has been taken over by the power in which you need to be in constant control. This lends to a callous and lonely way of life, where your heart is completely closed off and love has no possible way of entering in nor does anything else.

Rejection is love Upside down , try these turn it around tips!

1.  Claim Your self worth: The Universe does not define your self worth, nor does your job, friends, spouse, parents , clients or co – workers. It is up to you to claim it ! When you claim your power , you define your authenticity. This is no time to be shy, what you are seeking is also seeking you. Redirection often leads you to a new and much more fulfilling outcome that you may not have thought of otherwise.

2. Recognize what you Do Control: When crap happens , we often react via flight or fight mode. Instead try the two A’s,  to allow and to accept. This gives you the opportunity to process your feelings and ponder your desires proactively. We do not control others decisions, emotions or personalities, let that go and place focus on taking care of  Y-O-U and your own decisions.

3. Detach : Often we place too much power upon others and give our power away. Ask yourself,  Am I enabling a situation or being enabled ? Enabling is disabling yourself. In most cases, the problem or issue becomes larger due to enabling . The art of detachment is a whole other blog post in itself, however, the down and dirty way is to void  your attachment of a feeling to the love object at hand . This does not mean you’re being selfish, instead you are replenishing your own soul. In essence,  this allows you to go about being a fully productive person in your own life. Often, it’s when we detach that miraculous occurrences  take place.

What appears as rejection is actually an invitation for you to start a new dream. Dreams change, my question is are you dreaming big enough ? Leave a comment and share your thoughts.

 Becoming happier in your professional life is about your personal story, you know, the one that you believe in your head and perhaps share in a 30 second elevator speech, cocktail party or social event, your about me bio. Nowadays, your hook is not enough, it’s all in your story which resonates and captures people’s attention. So perhaps it’s time to change your story?

Simply put, you can begin to lead a happier life by changing your story of the old YOU, transformed into the new you through the process of  self reflection. Discovering your relationship to your story may need refreshing through an awareness of organizing your inner story. It is our external or outer story which communicates a verbal existence of your inner experience. Oral storytelling is how we link to others, especially when shared in a practiced authentic cadence.

In todays world where past, present and future seem to have collided and the speed of change is faster than we can keep up with, it will take more than a minute to determine what no longer serves you. A more mindful and meaningful approach to self reflection are questions such as; What can I do to improve my well being ? How can I  improve the way I present myself to the world? What do I need to do differently in order to make this happen?  What have I learned ? And do I believe it enough that my passion exudes and attracts a feeling of; inspiration, relief, or laughter within myself and others ?

We are all constantly sharing or telling stories, look at Facebook for example. Posts and snippets about moments in time that capture a feeling, a visual , an event from a bigger story. So many stories floating around about different people and places at points of time  in life. It’s not that we don’t know how to construct a story , it’s a matter of how to convey a believable story that captures you and  your essence qualities. A good place to start that Brendon Burchard, Author of Milllionaire Messenger, shares is here:

X + Y = Z

I teach X (topic) to Y (audience) so they can Z (benefit), or you can use a metaphor for example I might describe myself as the Queen of Self Reinvention , you may be the Martha Stewart of Marketing etc.,  you get my point. Position yourself for accelerated growth  by aligning your About ME: your personal strengths, personality and talents with your mojo.  If you are serious about changing your story, I suggest reading Michael Margolis’ blog .

Life Enhancement Tip : To move forward and beyond where you are now you must be willing to ELEVATE and go beyond where you have been. Write a paragraph that describes you, but write it in such a way where there is no ego involved, write it as a story that comes from the heart not the head. Step back and think of what gripped you at a time that created a  change in you and  your truth, this is a story to tell and share in your Bio, About ME or presentation to share with your audience.  Exercise flow writing, this is what rises in your mind, tap in , write out the space of awareness and then stop. Begin again til you have a few vignettes. Circle the themes. You flow into the influence of what makes you unique.

You and only you determine how you travel on your life path alone. There are several ways to become unstuck and affirm your life ‘s path today !

To unlock  a feeling of being stuck , you can start by asking yourself, what you affirm about yourself today? What does it mean to affirm? To validate, confirm, state positively. Most of us look back with grim feelings of a hazy year. This is energy; energy changes like the ebb and flow of our bodies. However, by affirming what you know in your heart that is good, pure, healthy and gratuitous, you can move forward in knowing your life affirmation as positive in nature. When you rekindle your light, you shine much brighter and see your life’s path more clearly.

It’s not where you have been, but where you are going that counts. The challenges of the past are old energy, feelings of yesterday. When you allow old feelings of yesterday to interfere in your today, you become stuck. Yes, healing takes time. However, rejection is redirection. Change or tweak your life plan if the original is not working. Easier said than done, you might be thinking. My response: simplify, simplify, simplify. Many of us get ahead of ourselves. Here are a few exercises in which to affirm or re- affirm your magnificence.

Solitude — Did you know the original songs written by Neil Diamond were written in complete solitude? At a time when he had no money or home,  just a guitar and himself. He rented a one room flat and locked himself away from distractions. The greatest American classic tunes such as “Cherry, Cherry,” “Solitary Man” and “Sweet Caroline” were created and born from within silence of the mind and opening of the heart. Reset your thoughts by opening your heart. Try this 10 minutes or more everyday, in solitude.

Create a personal mantra — If you are stuck or unsure how to move forward from where you are, choose a few inspiring words that you aspire toward as your inner therapeutic tool . This can be words such as, “Miracles Happen for me, NOW!” A new mantra attracts good energy and activates a surge of positive change in thought and action. The act of a mantra also interrupts negative thoughts and worry, in addition it un- invites those toxic people in your life who are consuming your thoughts.

Your written word — Most if not all business professionals succeed based on a plan. Hence, the business plan . A simple format is to write out your mission, place 3  action steps,  a strategy and goals by which you calculate to succeed. Your written word is a concrete declaration and commitment to yourself. A 30- or 60- or 90-day plan is useful for changing and tweaking your plan as you proceed. The affirmation process throughout the year can be accomplished much the same way, why not?

Feeling — Many of us are afraid to feel our feelings. Yet it is our feelings that allow us to dig deep and embrace our pain. When you embrace pain, you slowly break down those walls you have been keeping up. Walls are not answers — they are excuses. So much energy is involved in maintaining walls. Your hurt leads to answers, but one cannot comprehend what those answers are when your walls have you closed off to people, opportunities and your true potential (higher self). Define the root of your pain and you have reached gold. Chances are your pain is linked to an old belief system that you may be in denial of. Your choice is to become awakened. It’s a transform or die world we are living in today. We are all here to help each other and you are not alone on your path. Transformation is part of the reinvention process, where you can become what you desire and aspire.

Believing — To achieve, you must believe. Belief in self is essential to accomplishing your dreams. Start with your personal mantra and “OM” it to your heart’s content. If you choose to look outward, choose a positive mentor who can validate your strengths, offer guidance and assist you with breaking old thinking patterns.

Make Your Moments Count — Organize your time and make your moments count. Time often escapes us with day-to-day minutia. This is not who we are. This is who we have become. Become what counts in your life!

Declare your affirmation — With a lipstick or washable marker, write out what you declare on your bathroom mirror. You will be amazed how looking at your affirmation everyday will create a new belief system. What I affirm and declare in my life today is that, “I am good, I attract good and I live an exceptional life!” What do you affirm in your life today?
