People with Goals Succeed because they KNOW where they are Going!

There are two quotes motivating me today.

  1. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life, can restore your faith in your self. ~Lucille Ball
  2. Boredom does not exist. The feeling of boredom is in your brain telling you to find something to do. That is why this feeling sucks so much.

I am a receptionist. I take 70-120 calls every day. Though this job is very important to my company and the people I talk to, I tend to have some down time. It is not consistent down time (half hour here ten min there), but because it is not consistent, I find it hard to find stuff to do (you can only clean your desk so many times). It is hard to start a project just to be interrupted by the phone. So, in turn, I have time to overthink and worry about everything. This is where my mind gets into trouble, this is where my mind gets negative. I do my best by looking at positive quotes and motivational sayings all day. But you can only do that for so long. Then I found quote number 1.

I need to find a way to keep my mind busy. I am an optimistic person, but I have a lot of time where my mind is not focused. When it is not focused it can easily be distracted to negative thoughts. So naturally, I googled how to keep you mind busy at work. I came across a sight that had a few good ideas. Some I have tried (Pintrest, Words With Friends, Adult Coloring Books) but there was one that really stuck out to me. It said to pick a word every day and strive to do everything you can with that word in that day. They gave examples like Happy, Friendly, Courageous. But for some reason today the word Empowering would not leave my mind. So I decided to make that my word for today.

I started to research Empowerment very vaguely online and found a quote from Oprah that is changing the way I think about this LOA stuff.

“The biggest secret in life is there is no secret. Whatever your goal, you get there if you are willing to work.”

A Goal. I need a goal. I mean I have goals, my goals are $80,000 and 128lbs. The LOA says you cannot worry about HOW thing will manifest. But you also need to ACT. How do you not worry about how it is going to happen and act on it at the same time. Are they not the same? This is where my second quote comes in. Boredom.

I am bored. I need to find a way to not be bored so that I can allow the HOW to happen. I need to find my passion or a hobby to keep my mind busy and alive. By keeping my mind busy, the negative thoughts cannot enter my mind. They cannot enter because my mind is already occupied with my hobby or passion.  I cannot just sit and wait for my sexy body to come to me, I need to be in alignment with universe and ACT.  This is where the “you need to act like you have what you want now” practice comes in. I need to wear the tight cloths (so that it will remind me to stop eating bad things), I need to stand tall and flaunt my self (it will give me confidence no matter my weight), I need to look proudly in the mirror and find one good thing that I LOVE about myself (this will have me looking for more wonderful things I love about me).I need to be doing positive things not just thinking them.

Most of the success stories I have read about the LOA have been to some extent the same in regards to the HOW it gets manifested. People would be doing what they love to do with out thinking of it like Fishing, Teaching, Writing, and someone would notice them. Then, out of no were, an opportunity would present itself. They were not thinking “oh today someone is going to come into my life and offer me a million dollar idea”. They just were doing what they love and someone noticed, or they came across and idea, or something presented itself in the form of an opportunity and it changed their life. The common denominator is that they were all doing something they enjoyed to do. They were in alignment with the universe and it was delivered to them.

So sitting here thinking positive things is not enough. I need to act. I need to work on being positive and find what makes me happy. I need to find a way to be busy and happy at the same time. I need try something, anything, even if it turns out to not me my purpose. At least I crossed that off the list and acted!

I am starting to feel Empowered!  I am feeling Empowered to move on and not be in this negative state! The universe put this word in my mind today I have no doubt. I want more out of life so I need to go get it! Lets go find my goals! Lets do this!

Before Something Great Happens, Everything Falls Apart

ChangeSign

I admit, this positive thinking, Law of Attraction, stuff is hard. I have had a rough couple weeks with it. I have been tested and pushed more than I would have hoped. I waked up every day and say what I am thankful for, I look at positive quotes every day at work, and say my daily affirmations. Yet things seem to be getting worse. Do they always have to get worst before they get better or is it me?

I keep reading and researching the LOA and how you need to FEEL grateful, skinny, rich, in order to attract those things to you. Honestly, that last like two minutes. I have felt more depressed lately than I have in a long time. Is that why things are worse? Or is it a test that if I feel good while things are bad than they will get better? Why are there test? Why can I not attract Abundance? Is this normal? AHHH

I think I need a mentor, a coach, or someone to talk to. I refuse to believe that life is a struggle! I refuse to believe that this is all that life has to offer us! I refuse to believe that this is normal! I refuse to believe that it always gets worse before it gets better! Life shouldn’t be a struggle. It should be an amazing adventure fulled with Joy, Travel, Abundance, amazing Experiences, good people, great food, love, Passion, and excitement! I refuse to believe that the life that I have been living is it! I refuse to believe that this is what I am meant to do! I have to much FIRE, to much SPIRIT to have this be it.

I am meant to travel the world! I am meant to have an abundant career! I am meant  for so much more that this! I have too much passion for life to be where I am at. Why am I in debt up to my ears, working two jobs just to make ends meet? Why cant I find my career? Why cant I be the woman I know I am and travel the world? Is it Fear? Lack of Opportunity? My Attitude? WHAT!!!! I feel I try. Every day I research how to get there. Motivational quotes, websites, books, you name it! I am a positive person, I try my darnedest to be positive. What am I missing?

All questions I intend to figure out….. If they really do get worse before it gets better, than something great is about to happen in my life.

One Day at a time. Here we go.

The Secret and Hook

TrailThe more I follow the law of Attraction the more I see it everywhere. I was watching Hook the movie with Robin Williams the other day, and for the first time I realized it was a clear picture of The Law of Attraction. Through out history the have talked about people who new The Secret of the Law of Attraction but this is the first time I have discovered it unintentionally.

Through out the book The Secret they talk about the importance of visualization. In the movie Hook the first trial that Peter (Robin Williams) has, is when he is sitting at dinner and he has to imagine the food being on the table. This is one of my favorite scenes in the movie. He is starving and is watching all the lost boys enjoy this invisible delicious food. Once he lets go of his adult mindset, and plays a name calling battle game with Rufio, he pretends the food is there and it appears. “Your thoughts become things”. Athletes use their imagination by visualizing themselves completing their event successfully. Inventors imagined their invention before they created it. Bob Proctor says you need to visualize yourself being successful and you will be.

Another example of The Secret being used in Hook is the obvious use of Happy Thoughts. I feel I talk about power of positive thinking all the time. In this movie that is the only thing they talk about. Having happy thoughts. Everyone has that one happy thought that makes them “fly”. We all have happy positive thoughts but there is one, just one, that will break us out of our rut and help us soar into our next adventure! It took Peter finding out who he really was to remember his happy thought. This is interesting to me. I feel I am a very positive optimistic person. But I haven’t taken off into my abundant life yet. Maybe it is because I haven’t found my ONE happy thought. Maybe I haven’t found myself yet so I don’t know what my Happy thought is. This is a new step in my journey.

In the book The Secret they talk about the importance of Play. The Adult Peter doens’t remember how to play. In the beginning when he first meets the lost boys he cannot even play a simple game of basketball. He has fear and is worried about how the lost boys are not wearing helmets, have no supervision, no rules. He is not in the moment. He doesn’t realize that they are happy and they are living their life to the fullest. They don’t worry about helmets, supervision, rules, or food. They just play and imagine that that day is the best day of their lives. No worries, no fear, no anger. They Just are.

Lastly, the example of having child like faith and belief that good things are happening. The lost boys are children, they are happy, they have faith that everything is going to be ok. They believe you when you say you will be right back. Children believe you when you tell them something. We always tell kids you can be anything you want when you grow up. They believe that they can be anything they want! They take a box and create a rocket ship because they want to be a astronaut that day. The next day they take the same box and it is a race car! They believe that they have control to be and do anything they want. Children understand The Secret before they even know it is a secret.

The movie Hook shows us that the craziness of life can distract us from who we are (Peter growing up) . That life can take things from you (his kids get kidnapped). But it takes something being taken from your for you to remember who you are (your Happy Thought). It shows us that being a child and having that joy that children have, that innocence is important. It allows us to be happy now, enjoy the little things, believe that life really is wonderful. As we grow up that gets taken away. We need to remember to not grow up.

I took a self help seminar a few years back and it followed a lot of what The Secret and Law of Attraction follows. At the end the speaker told us to imagine that we are children in a box. That is all he said. We sat there in silence for a while a lot of us like WTF. Then one Girl goes “OH!”, then another “wow”, then I got it. We have the power to create our lives. Pretend you are a child in a box and you can make that box what ever you want it to be. Imagine your self making $80,000 a year, imagine yourself driving that car, imagine yourself being 128lbs. Believe that it can happen. Have no doubt in your mind. A child isn’t worried about how he is going to get to space, he just is. She isn’t worried about how she is going to fit into that dress for the ball, she just is. She isn’t worried about how she is going to afford med school, she is just going to be a Doctor.

Just by watching this movie, seeing that the Secret is everywhere, has assured me that I am on the right path. I have attracted more positive things, more movies, quotes, messages, to help me continue my journey to my dreams. The Secret is EVERYWHERE. You just have to be open to it. The fact that I noticed it mean I am doing something right! Here’s to being a kid again!

 

Continuing My Paradigm

snow-flower_1600x900A Paradigm is a habit. It is what we continually do routinely though out our lives. To change that is not an easy task. I have made the decision to change my paradigm. A decision that is changing my life forever and for good. I want to make $80,000 a year, I want to be 128lbs, and I want a motorcycle. These are my new paradigms.

Bob Proctor said, in one of his many speeches, that in order to become the person you want to be you need to act like that person. You don’t need to spend the money to be a millionaire, but you do need to hold yourself like one. You need talk like one. You need to dream like one. You need to pretend to be who you want to be. This is hard for me because I don’t know exactly who I want to be. I know I want to have a motorcycle, have tattoos, and be that sexy biker chick. But I also want to have a career and work in an office and be respected.

I can have both right?

So do I go get the tattoos and walk like the bad ass bitch I know I am, or do I  do I walk around in work cloths and act like I own the place. Or both. Where do I start?

One of the biggest messages I take from Bob Proctor is that you need to make decisions. You need to decided that you want to change. You need to decided that you will not give up. You need to decided what you want and pretend you already have it.

I need to decide what I want. All I can decide right now is $80,000 a year, 128lbs, and a motorcycle. So I need to walk around with the confidence that I am that weight, that I have that money to spend, I have the freedom to go ride every weekend. How do you do this? How do you not think “well it sounds good but is it really going to happen.” How do you do this for 30 days?

It takes 30 days to form a habit. To change you paradigm you need to change your habits. I have to find a way to act like a bad ass, rich, sexy, biker chick for 30 days.

Cool. Maybe I will start with a piercing. Or maybe I will get some motorcycle gloves.  Or actually sketch out my sleeve tattoo. I don’t know what I am going to do but I am going to do something.

I will let you know how it goes.

Attracting Money

moneyI have come to the decision that I think my Blog is going to be about the Law of Attraction. Through out this whole past few months the Law of attraction in one way or another has shaped my life. It brought back my hearing, my positive prospective on life, my job. As I mentioned before I am changing my Paradigm, and I am doing so with the Law of Attraction.

Bob Proctor helped me to realize that I need to start making decisions in my life. I have recently decided that I am going to make $80,000 a year. Have no idea how, or by doing what but I am going to do it! Well the past few days I have received more bills that I have in quite some time…. all very unexpected. So after being on a high from that motivational speech from Bob Proctor 6 Min to Success, this was a total downer.

After doing more research I have found that I have a fear of money. When I get money from someone or out of no where, I instantly think “wow how do I repay them” or “this is great but will it be consistent”. I am always afraid it will go away. I feel I don’t deserve money. This is the negative thought that is keeping money from me. I need to change my thinking and I need to start believing that I do deserve money. This is easier said than done.

I probably sat at my desk and read 100 positive money affirmations today. I wrote down in my journal “Now, I release  this negative belief from my mind, body and soul. Now I am complete, happy, and positive about money. I am a Money Magnet and I am Abundance!”. I took my bills in my had and said thank you for the service that were provided to me with these bills. I have at my desk a fake check for $80,000 that I look at all day. But I dont FEEL good about money.

I dont know how to change that.

I have been on google trying to find an answer and the only thing that I found that is consistent in all the teachings, is being specific about what you want. Make specific demands or amounts and imagine your self spending it. As an athlete I know that visualization is a great way to help the mind get in the zone, so I am going to try it with money.

I am going to visualize looking at my online account and seeing $80,000 in it. I am going to visualize buying (Specific) things for my boyfriend just because I can. I am going to visualize paying my bill and saying thank you! I am going to visualize my credit card balances being $0! I am going to Visualize buying the plane ticket to Denver and not hesitating. I am going to visualize going out to dinner and getting specific menu item and enjoying it without thinking about cost.

All of these things I am going to get a specific amount for and I am going to FEEL myself having it now. I am going to feel how it feels to pay without looking at the check. I am going to FEEL abundance I am going to FEEL the joy!

Ah bliss. I will let you know how it goes!

 

Dancing in the Rain

RainToday I woke up and it was raining. A good, hard, crisp, fresh rain. Not only could I hear the rain pattering on my roof, I couldn’t help but feel the change and freshness it was bringing to my life.

“Rain isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass…it is about learning to dance in the Rain.”

This quote could not be more perfect for my life right now. Through all the struggles, through all the change, I am still dancing. I am changing my Paradigm. I am making continuous improvements. I have a plan! A positive, wonderful, abundant plan. Filled with goals and dream that I have always been afraid to dream of! Anything is possible!

Sounds silly, strange, too optimistic, but I cannot explain it. I can feel the change. I can only hope that people can see it in me. I hope that who ever is reading my post, following me on my journey, can be as motivated as I am.

My plan:

Track my food with Myfitnesspal

On my morning walks with my dogs think about 10 things I am grateful for. Truly feel grateful, and feel the gratitude radiate from me.

Say my daily affirmations in the morning in the mirror before work.

Take a photo daily so I can be sure to find something beautiful about every day!

Give love for my life and my boys. Show them everyday that I love them!

Attract abundance in every way into my life!

 

$80,000 a year, 128lb sexy body, full hearing, travel, positive abundance, and much much love!

I got this!

Change your Paradigm

So this morning I woke up with a positive attitude, great hearing, and motivation to change my life. It is raining out right now but the grass is so green and air is so crisp it is almost a sign that things are changing.

I have always been a believer of the Law of Attraction. I know I have mentioned it before in a few post. The past few months it has been harder for me to be the positive optimistic person I know I am. Yesterday, our rent cleared and we decided to be positive and grateful for the ability to be here in this home. Silly but it is a positive accomplishment for us so we cherished it. Then my co-workers asked me out for drinks. Being new to the office, I should have been ecstatic to be invited out with everyone. But instead my thoughts became negative. I was so worried that a $5 drink would make it so I couldn’t pay bills. Only because we struggled so hard to make rent the moment before. I was worried sick that $5 would make or break my bank account. Realizing how negative this thought was I went any way and new I had to change my thinking.

It was not easy. I cannot even say I succeeded. I tried to be grateful for the $5 I had to spend out with my friends, I tried to be grateful for the abundance of money still in my bank account. But all I could do was put in my favorite Michael Jackson CD and listen to my favorite song. That is all the positiveness I got out of that situation. After my song I felt that I did not succeed in changing my thinking towards money and that I was not attracting it to me. Ultimately not making the night the best it could have been.

This morning I sat on the couch with my boys and decided to be positive and find a way to change the way I was thinking about money. I googled videos on the Law of Attraction and Money and decided to watch Bob Proctor on Paradigm Shifting. By doing so I realized a few amazing things. One, I was successful last night. I acknowledged that I was being negative and consciously made the decision to find something positive to focus on. Two, our Paradigms are habits we are taught through life and I want to change mine. And Three, I need to start making decisions.

To change your Paradigm you need to make a decision to do so. You don’t have to have the how, but you need to make THE decision that it is possible to change the outcome of your life. It changes the way the universe sends you things. You need to have a clear decision so that it can bring your situations and events to get it to you. This is hard for me. My boyfriend will be the first person to tell you that I dont make decisions. I know that is my problem.  I need to decided what I want and work at it. Bob Proctor said that you need to consciously work at something for 90 days for it to be a habit.

As an athlete I know this. Muscle memory, diet, routine, everything takes time to become a regular part of your life. It takes time to get into a routine of working out three days a week. It takes time for your body to remember the next dance move efficiently. Your mind is exactly the same.

I want to be more positive. It is going to take time and practice for it to  happen. It doesn’t happen all at once. Because I noticed that I was being negative and decided to change it even if it was short lived, I am changing how I react to things in my life. (A really good sign) Soon it wont be hard to think positive when I get caught up in silly things. Every day I wake up and express my gratitude for everything that I have, I say my daily affirmations, I choose to be the best I can be. Soon it will be a habit I wont have to read them I will know them. It will be my Paradigm not a chore.

I am deciding to change my Paradigm. I am going to make $80,000 a year. I am going to weigh 128lbs and be strong and healthy. I am going to travel. I am going to have a motorcycle. I am happy.

Those are my decisions. The HOW is yet to come.
