Tip the balance

As a high energy speaker, I exist to ignite passion and purpose within others.  It's even more crucial that I maintain a sense of balance.  

Levels of peak performance must be balanced with periods of deep renewal. When and how are you giving to yourself? The key to unlocking deeper layers of fulfillment is through balance in all areas of your life.  

What fills you up? It's easy to deplete the energy in your tank especially when you are constantly giving to others on a daily basis. 

Creating balance in your life is a daily practice that you can condition through intention and habit.  

When you are continually giving to yourself you stay connected to your source and your purpose, your way of serving others.  

Today, tip the balance and focus on deeper renewal.

Day 4: Read your vision

On day 1 of the 28 day difference maker plan, I asked you to to consider creating a 2021 vision of your perfect day in every detail. As human beings we've been given the extraordinary gift of sight.  I'm not just referring to the miracle of our eyes I'm referring to our ability to see a vision of ourselves.  

Why do we all posses this gift?  What are we meant to collectively envision?  Some spiritual teachers say it's part of our next level of human evolution.  

When you [focus] and fixate only on what you desire to create you shut off the hundreds of distractions in your periphery.  The only path you see is the one directly in front of you.  

A powerful habit that you can master is reading your vision out loud a few times everyday.  When you consistently read your vision you become one with it. Your actions innately align with your vision.  An invisible energy seems to bridge the gap between your current reality and your vision.  This bridge becomes a powerful connector bringing you closer and closer to what you desire most.  

Choosing to read your vision and focus on what you want most is exactly that, a choice.  You can either believe that the world is created for you or that you are the creator of your own destiny.  

I look forward to hearing what you have to say.

Day 3: Who do I wish to attract?

As we enter day 3 of the 28 day Difference maker plan I want you to live this question all day. Who do I need to attract?  Think about it, what would make this the most explosive year of your life? 

When you decide to become all that you can be and believe in yourself, you will start attracting the people that want to lift you up on their shoulders.  Are you ready to receive those gifts? 

The most extraordinary Angels are continually showing up in your life but you have to be open to seeing them in order to receive their gifts.  You have to look up and embrace the magic and the power of what you've asked for.  

Attracting the relationships and the love is about becoming the love that you're seeking.  It all starts with you changing your vibration and becoming an energy magnet.  So how do you raise your vibration? One word, Gratitude! 
Make a list of everything and everyone that has been showing up, all of them even the most challenging ones, as they are your greatest Angels sent to remind you of what you are and all that you're meant to be.

Day 2: Create 5 Affirmations

So what are affirmations? Why are they so important to experiencing success and fulfillment? Is there an art to creating affirmations?  

These are great questions.  See affirmations as the direct link and communication from your mind to the universe.  

When used properly and consistently, affirmations have the power to attract the people, circumstances and events that are in alignment with what you are seeking most.   

Affirmations start with an "I am..." Statement.  They serve as your declaration and intention to God and the universe that you are ready to receive.  They are not goals, wants, hopes or dreams so don't confuse the two.  

Think about the 5 things that you are seeking most. These may be based in the areas of finances, love, relationships, career and family so you may wish to create one powerful affirmation for each.  Here is an example of how that would sound: "I am living my life with a great  sense of purpose.  I am continually attracting $1,000 of income per day..."
Next to the affirmation, create a complimentary visual that emotionally connects you to the feeling of having received it.  

Have fun creating and living your affirmations.  Read them out loud upon waking up, a few times throughout the day then just before you fall asleep.

Fixate only on the end prize of what you are saying.  See it as absolute fact.  Know that with every breath and feeling that what you are seeking is yours.

What is the perfect day?  Describe it to me.  Where and how are you living?  Who are you in this new reality?  What are you experiencing? 

This is not a goals exercise this is all about the vision for the way you want live.  Start now and write it out in vivid detail.  Add colours and photos of this perfect day.  Read it aloud 5 times a day and really feel it.  Make copies of this ideal day and post your creation everywhere.

Look at me!

We've created a world that breeds an overriding need for external validation.  We feed it everyday with the smallest of acts.  Everyday that we feed this monster takes us away from our true calling and reason for being.  

What if we shed this need to be liked, validated and right? Imagine a world that exists only through love.  

It's this deeper love for oneself, this inner-knowing that once realized has the power to shift a new consciousness.  

Fear cannot exist in a mind filled with love.  Fear is the only energy that perpetuates a world starving for validation.  Nothing outside of yourself will ever fill you up.  No amount of likes, impressions or views will ever replace the power of your own love.  

I love you for all that you are.  I love you without judgment. I love the possibility of you.  I love that you are here now, in this place at this time.  I love that together we can create a world inspired.

Do it when no ones looking!

It's easy to remain in your comfort zone living the same daily routine. Here's the thing, for things to change you have to be willing to change. 

It's the willingness to forge new habits and new ways of thinking.  Commit to living the inspired actions even when no one is looking.  

The path to success and fulfillment is often a lonely road.  In the darkest moments it requires you to hold up the light and look into the mirror and declare to yourself that you're not quitting on you.  

Do the actions when no ones looking.  Do it without expectation, praise or external validation.  Do the actions for you knowing and believing that every step forward is moving you out of hell.  

It's easy to do it once in a while when others are around cheering you on but you have to do it for you today, when no ones looking.  

You may have lived with this 'I'm not good enough or deserving state' for way to long.'  It's a new day and a new opportunity to cultivate a different mindset.  Anything is possible, you just need to be the one that does it when no ones looking.

How can you engage others?

We exist in a connection age striving to create deeper connections in all areas of our lives.  So how are you connecting and engaging with others? 

In my latest book titled: I don't know what the hell I'm doing, I share an insight called: Share & Tell.  The essence is quite simply this:  'Strive to connect with people's hearts and you will win them for a lifetime.'   

It's easy to [focus] on the features and benefits of your product or opportunity but here is the thing - who gives a crap!  If you want to STAND OUT from the crowd and the sea of noise then take a step towards the front of the line.  

Creating meaningful connections starts with an intention.  Less is more in this instance.  In a crowded room - be present with the person next to you. Replace mass social media boosts with a few heart-felt hand written notes to your true ambassadors.  

Go beyond the features and benefits and stir in empathy and emotion. "I know how you feel and I'm here to help you..."

Great leaders today strive to nurture and cultivate deeper relationships for tomorrow.  They lead knowing WHY. They focus on the few knowing they will engage the many.

Limit your expectations

What stops most people from experiencing deeper levels of connection is our expectation of others. If only they would see my point of view or why can't I get them to change!  

Once you come to a deeper realization that the only true power you have comes from within, you will start to experience fulfillment quite possibly for the first time .  I know it's sounds cheesy but it's truth - you can't change anyone.  

When you lead and share from the heart and strive to connect at a deeper level that's all that matters.  Release and let it go.  Don't fret on where and how it landed.  There is no need to look back over your shoulder or scroll down the newsfeed.  Stay focused on the path ahead.  [Fixate] only on what you wish to experience, the end prize.  

Send the most challenging ones love and light.  See everyone and every outcome as an extraordinary gift from above guiding you to living the only question that matters ~ "Why you exist and what you are meant to be and do with the limited time on this earth."

Energy flows where your mind goes

If you're anything like me then you believe that everything in our world is made up of energy.  Our ability to think, create, attract and act flows through the power of energy.  

You experience it everyday in all life's daily miracles.  The flowers that you planted years ago effortlessly bloom.  The growth of your little idea into a realized dream.  The unexpected call from a dear friend that you reflected on just a few days earlier.    

What you [focus] on expands.  It's the law of the universe.  If you focus your mind on fear then more of it will appear.  Instead, fixate ONLY on what you desire to create.  Carve out the time and allocate daily energy towards your dream.  It doesn't take much just intention, focus, belief and inspired action.  

Everyday you get a chance to choose you.  You get the opportunity to flow your energy towards what matters most.  This in itself is a miracle.  Bless everything around you and know that your time is coming you are about to bloom.

What's your climb?

Once you come to the realization that most of the world will not support your vision or your dreams, you can start your climb.  What is your climb?  

What is the journey that your heart desires? How do you want to live each day knowing this way of existing will flow fulfillment your way?

This climb is going to take a new kind of oxygen and inner-belief. You're going to have to leave a few people at the base of the mountain.  This isn't their time and it's not their climb and that's totally ok.  

This is all about you.  You're the only one that can change you and everything around you. What is the change that's driving the climb? It's everything.  It's your outlook on the world and your inward view of who you want to become.  
Your climb is an inner-knowing that you are meant for more.  

To make the climb you have to be willing to prepare yourself mentally, physically and spiritually. The old way of being helped you reach this point in your life. To reach a new summit however,  you're going to have to let go of the heavy baggage that's been holding you back.  You're going to have to lighten up the load by simplifying your life.  

I don't know how much time you've got left but I'm excited about reaching out and pulling you up. I'm inspired to help you plant your flag and watch your heart smile as you marvel at all the wonderful beauty of your life.

Make it the time of your life.

TGIM: Thank God I'm Motivated!
What if today was the START of the time of your life? I know you're ready to put yesterday in the past.  

From this point on your only sign is GO. You've stopped yourself for too long. No more apologies are necessary. No one else needs to get you.  

Once you start you won't be able to stop.  Escape to that place that you can see and feel in your mind.  Taste and savour the juicy possibility of you.  What have you got yo win? 

You are becoming aware of your limited time here on this earth and equally your unlimited potential.  The breaks are off, the tank is full, the destination is keyed in and the time of your life never looked so good.  Ready. Set. GO.

Relax & Let Go

Not to long ago you decided what you want most. You took action and believed you would receive.  Now it's time to relax and let go. 

It's time to stop agonizing over the HOW's and just let go and let GOD.  Learn to be in a greater state of flow with everything around you.  

Become aware of inspired actions that enter your consciousness.  This is your soul whispering to you through a connection to the energy of the universe.  

Your only role in this creative process is to be open to the energy of these inspired thoughts.  You receive by letting go. 

Action is required but not just any action. The more in tune and connected you are to WHY you exist and what you are meant to be and do, the way is revealed in the form of inspired actions.  

Today, fill your heart with gratitude for your inner-knowing.  Receive these gifts. Know that your time is coming, relax and let go.

Do it for you

What is it that you are pursuing? What is the BIGGER dream?  Do you feel it in your heart?  Does it make you weep when you play your favourite song? 

Whatever you're pursuing - do it for you.  Whatever you're seeking - do it for you.  

The world needs your dream now more than ever.  We need you to believe in something bigger, we need you to believe in you.  

Soon, you will be sharing the day it all changed for you.  You'll share how you found the love inside and that attracted the love you now share with others.  

You cleared the path, shut off the noise, removed the obstacles and ignited the way.  You found the belief for it found you. 
You did it for you.

It's inside of you

TGIM: Thank God I'm Motivated.  The first book I authored was titled: What Have You Got To Win? It was a tribute to my mentor Jack Canfield - The co-creator of Chicken Soup for the Soul Series and the author of the number one best seller: The Success Principles.  

In 2007 I had immersed myself into Jack's work for 12 straight months.  When I looked up, I experienced a deeper realization and awakening: 'Inside all of us lives a seed of potential waiting to be nurtured so we can grow into a successful version of our true selves.'

I love kicking off Monday's with massive motivation.  It's why I refer to it as TGIM. It's your jet pack for the day and week ahead, your rocket fuel for breaking  through the atmosphere and the temporary barriers.  The realization that I'm sharing with you this morning is simply this: 'Everything you've got to WIN already lives inside of you.'  

What if your perfect career already existed just waiting for you to seize it.  

What if the love you're seeking already lives inside of you just waiting for you to believe in it.  

What if you were born with a seed of potential waiting to be ignited and bloom into the most beautiful version of yourself - your true self. 

Today, light the fuse and believe that you are possible. Believe that you were meant to guide us all.  Inspire us to look up and marvel at your gifts as you soar out where you've always belonged, among the stars.
