Participants from last weekend’s Enlightened Business & Marketing Retreat are still reveling in the inspiring energy we conjured up together. I invite you to use our mojo to re-ignite your visions! I invite you to commit to your dreams.
Here are five steps to help you stop checking out and start being IN.
1 – Mind your Mind
Your thoughts are things. They can be powerful tools, or devastating weapons.
It’s not always quick to clean up years of compromised beliefs. AND the truth is you are the only one who can begin to do just that. If you constantly berate yourself, doubt yourself, or obsess about the opinions of others, set your intention to turn that around.
Listen to upbeat audiobooks in your car. Post affirmations in visible spots. Start a gratitude journal.
Remind yourself: “Energy flows where attention goes,” and place your attention on gratitude, love, and joy.
2 – Take Action
Back when I first got the idea to offer retreats like last week-end, I kept waiting for self-esteem to appear before I would take the chance and just do it.
Guess what? That’s not how it works…
Instead, my coach invited me to commit to a date on paper – and then offer my first event. (I’ve since done this many times!)
Here’s what I discovered:
Self-esteem shows up BECAUSE you take action. Not before! (What one action-step can you take toward your dream today?)
3 – Radiate Success
Do you complain to anyone who will listen? Do you tell your sad story to get people to feel sorry for you?
Being in and living big means you radiate success. Stop facebooking or bitchng about how miserable you are. Don’t moan about your current challenges. Refrain from whining to your friends about how hard your life is. Remember this: Like attracts like. When you radiate success, then success is drawn to you.
4 – Exit your Comfort Zone
One of my favorite expressions, (cuz it’s true) is: “If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always got!”
I’ve worked with hundreds of people as a mentor. The ones who create breakthroughs are always the ones who are willing to exit their comfort zones. They let themselves get scared. They say ‘YES’ to new opportunities. They take time to ask themselves what they want next and how they can create it. They learn to get comfortable being uncomfortable!
5 – Surround Yourself with Support
I hired my first coach about 5 years ago. I invested more in myself that day than I ever had before her more per month than I’ve ever spent.
Many people don’t do this. Instead, they take a “duct tape” approach to their own support and training, hoping they can continue to get away with their same old fearful behavior, always promising themselves that “some day” they’ll get some real support. That they’ll go all in when they’re ‘ready.’
It never works. They stay at the same level. (After all, that’s where it’s comfortable!)
Surround yourself with encouraging believers who are, like you, fully invested in their success, and who want you to succeed.
Many people live and socialize in toxic environments. If this is you, then step out of your comfort zone and actively seek out positive people who want to create and attract their dreams. Surround yourself with people who want to live big and be all in like you!
