Life is Short

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”
― Hunter S. Thompson

How did we get here?

By the time we are 7 we have a load of beliefs in place a lot of which no longer serve us.  Some we were told like look both ways when you’re crossing the road still hold good but we picked up ideas and thoughts from our parents, teachers, peers, friends, family that don’t make any sense for us now and who we are.  Like ‘know your place’; people like us never become rich, successful; we’re big boned; it’s hereditary;  there’s so much we took in as kids that has held us back from fulfilling our goals and so often we don’t even realise it.

How do we change it?

Change the belief – it really is that simple; once we change the beliefs and replace them with positive empowering ones – the sky’s the limit

We can be, do, have whatever it is we want.

You might not believe in The Law of Attraction, thinking it’s some mumbo jumbo it really does work – if you keep saying to yourself that good things don’t happen to you, or it’s ‘just your luck’, or you’ll never be slim, have the perfect relationship, get that great job – guess what?  You won’t.

Henry Ford said “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.” –

Your unconscious doesn’t have a sense of humour; what you tell it, it believes

So if you keep telling it negative stuff, that’s what you’ll get it your life

You’re attracting it.

But if you tell it that you deserve the best, that you’re worthy of that great relationship, that great job – you will attract it.

Your ‘luck’ will change

And you’ll find all sorts of ‘miracles’ happening in your life without you seemingly doing anything about it.

It becomes fun, life is no longer a struggle

That’s not to say you won’t have challenges – obstacles – sure you will –  but you’ll deal with them in a much better easier way – you won’t fret and worry but work out how to make the most of the situation.

I liken it to going on a journey; sitting in your car in your drive and putting your destination (your goal) into the Satnav; and then driving off but completely ignoring the directions.

I really do believe that when we get so obsessed about something, we can’t see anything else, we ignore advice, very importantly we don’t listen to our intuition, we don’t go with the flow and we struggle and come across obstacles; and in fact the journey just seems to get longer and longer.

When we trust the Universe to look after us; to listen to our intuition and enjoy the ride and the scenery along the way, we suddenly find that we reach our destination much quicker and usually with a lot less pain.

Vital Steps

So the first thing we have to do is release the limiting belief, and replace it with the empowering one.

And then take MASSIVE action

Unfortunately there are a lot of people out there who do affirmations and visualisations and wonder why they don’t work

Simply because you can’t reasonably expect to just sit there and have all your dreams come true without actually doing anything about it.

We need to devise a schedule with action points

Ensure Consistency; repetition, – you can’t become a world class athlete if you only go to the track once and do one lap –

You have to keep doing it; when you get up in the morning you clean your teeth, before you go to bed you clean your teeth; well doing affirmations and visualisations need to be that consistent ; keep repeating , keep doing them and you’ll be surprised how much better you’ll feel

Positivity – affirmations, visualisations, meditation.  – putting it out there AND taking appropriate action.


Achieving your Goals

What you give out you get back; – you’ve heard the expression what goes around comes around – is so true – if you think bad stuff that’s what you get ; if you think oh why me or say things like – oh that’s just my luck – or don’t believe that good things will come to you; that’s what you’ll get – another saying – be careful what you wish for – is also so true –

The majority of people walk around letting their mind rule them; their thoughts rule them; when in fact it’s You that has the power – It’s only a thought and a thought can be changed.

If I said to you ; you were a purple pig would you believe me ?  no of course you wouldn’t (unless of course you are a purple pig!!) then why do we believe all the stuff that we’re told; or we heard when we were kids like you’re stupid, we can’t achieve, you’ll never amount to anything, your fat, people like us don’t become successful, you’ll never be rich, nothing good will ever to happen to us.  We believe and end up living it; no matter how hard we try to manifest and visualise and say affirmations – those inner thoughts and beliefs will keep sabotaging our every effort.  By the age of 5 they say we’ve learned so much about who and what we are; and if you were told as a kid that you can’t do anything, it’s there and it won’t go.  So what we have to do is change our limiting beliefs.  Get to the root cause, get it out and replace it with positive, affirming thoughts.  Love ourselves exactly as who and what we are………. Phew I tell you that is probably the most difficult thing for most people.  Saying affirmations and doing visualisations and meditations with all those limiting beliefs still in place is like papering over the cracks.  You have to get rid of it before you can move it.  That’s the reason you’re stuck – those little gremlins inside will keep rising up in your subconscious and sabotage you every single time.  You’ll be affirming you want a new relationship and the little voice will keep telling you you’re unlovable, or how could anybody love you, and you’ll keep affirming and wondering why you’re not meeting anyone or you settle for ‘second best’ because you don’t feel you deserve better.  And that’s what it all comes down to – loving yourself.  How can you love anyone if you don’t love and accept yourself as you are?  How can you be a success, have a thriving business, if you feel you don’t deserve.  Those gremlins have got a lot to answer for.  Our parents were doing the best they could with what they knew, we can’t blame anyone else.  We must take full responsibility for what our life is.  That doesn’t mean being defeatist and saying well it will never work.  It will.  I’m living proof of that; I had challenges and overcame them.  I lost weight, had a series of relationships that didn’t serve me – I thought the answer was outside me and it wasn’t – it isn’t, its inside.  Love yourself and everything works out, your health, relationship, work, career, home, money – you have to let go and let the Universe look after you.  That sounds really radical but that’s the way it is.  It’s like say you’ve got a very important meeting in a part of town (or another town) that you never been to before.  What do you do? You set the satnav and start off.  But every time it gives you a direction you totally ignore it and go your own way.  3 hours later you’re totally lost and you’ve missed a very important meeting.  Hmmmm.  Not good.  That’s what life is like – we always think we know exactly what’s right for us but when we learn to trust the Universe actually does know better we find things somehow working out – little miracles just start happening.    We’re all on a journey and so we make goals but assume we know the best way to get there.  If we just trust that the Universe will look after us ; it always does.  God, The universe, the source, whatever you want to call it – only wants the best for us; it doesn’t serve anyone to play small, by being the best we can be we can realise our true purpose, our true potential.  When you do something you don’t want to do, when you aren’t in sync you feel uncomfortable, not happy.  When you’re relaxed, and ‘going with the flow; you feel right, and everything works out – you attain your goals seemingly effortlessly.

There is a secret – it all starts off with your plan / goal.  What you actually want, what you really truly want – not what someone else wants you to have, but what you deep down in your very heart want.

if you had as much money that you could ever image what would you be doing, where would you be, who would you be with.

The attitude of gratitude is so powerful; the Universe can’t give you more if there’s no room in your heart

I can show you how to get there; set your ‘satnav’ for wherever it is you truly want to be
