Summer of Personal Development


Adobe Spark (4)

Summer is here and lots of people use the next few months to kick back and pretend like the struggles and disappointments of life are on hold. The truth is, summer is a time of growth. Look around and you’ll notice all the growing plants and animals. Summer can also be a time of growth for you. A time to do some introspection and work on personal development. A time to let go of behaviors,thoughts and patterns that are holding you back from being your most awesome you.

What has you feeling stuck? Not following through with what you want most? Is it a course you purchased but haven’t even looked at? A promotion that you want but haven’t taken steps to make yourself the ideal candidate? How about a better relationship with your loved one, children, friend? How about the gym membership and weight loss program you have purchased but still haven’t used?

A summer of personal development can change it all. Take a look at my private coaching and let’s see how I can help you become all that you want to be. Schedule A Call Today

Change Your Thoughts To Change Your Life

colorful-1325268_1280

I have a question for you, be honest, “do you hate your life?” Do you sometimes wish for a do-over but think that it’s too late for you to have a different life? You feel stuck, trapped, like there is no way out. So many regrets. I’m writing to let you know, there is a way out.

I believe that somewhere deep within, you know know that you can change your life but for whatever reason you’re afraid to change. If you’re tired of looking at everyone else enjoy their lives, you can change yours whenever you’re ready. The question is, are you ready? You’re the only one who can answer that question. The truth is you may really hate where you are right now but you are still not ready to do what it is going to take to change.If that’s where you are acknowledge it and keep working on getting to the place where you are ready to make a change.

If you are ready for the trajectory of your life to change, great. Let’s go. Guess what has you where you currently are in your life? Your thoughts. Yes, your current situation is the product of your thoughts. I know, it hurts. The first time that I read this I was livid, “no way am I responsible for my life being the way it is”. I couldn’t get that statement out my head for several weeks. I started paying attention to my thoughts and realized it was true, my thoughts were keeping me where I was. Ouch!

Dictionary.com defines a thought as the product of mental activity; that which one thinks. What is your mental activity producing? Is the life that you are living lining up with what you think about most? Over the next few days pay attention to your mental activity. If it’s not lining up with what you want to see happening in your life, think new thoughts and watch things start to change in your life.

If you’re serious about change and are ready to have a fresh start with your life. I want to invite you to be a part of my 6 week course, From No Plan to Well Planned. During our 6 weeks together I’ll show you how to map out a plan for your life and create habits that will bring you lasting success and happiness in your life.

I Hate My Life

Have you whispered these words before? I know that I have whispered some variation of them more than once. It wasn’t that I hated my life. I didn’t like the way that I was living my life but I wasn’t doing anything about it. That’s what I hated. The inaction is where my frustration lie.

If I was so frustrated with the way that I was living my life why wasn’t I doing anything about it? Good question. After all, if you don’t like the direction you’re headed change paths right?  Easier said than done. You see, I struggled with the following:

1. I did not know what I wanted my life to look like? Because I had not figured out what I wanted my life to look like I didn’t know which path to take.

2. I didn’t know where to start. I didn’t know what I wanted my life to look like and I didn’t know how to figure it out. Can you imagine how frustrated I was?

3. I wanted someone or something (a book an article) to give me a plan to follow. I knew that if I could find a book or an article or someone to show me what to do I could figure it all out. I needed a plan for figuring out what I wanted my life to look like.

Well, I found out that everything that I needed was available to me. However, it was up to me to use them. In order to use them I had to:

1. Make a decision. This sounds so simple but it is one of the hardest things to do. It wasn’t until I made the decision to change the path that I was on that I started to see things differently. It’s one thing to say that you don’t like the path that you are on, but until you make a decision that you’ve had enough of that path and are ready for something else, your mantra will remain the same, “I hate my life.”

2. Get clear on what I wanted my life to look like. Once I made the decision that I was ready to change the way that I was living my life I needed to figure out what type of life I wanted to live. I have to tell you, the only one who knows the type of life that you want to live is YOU. Yup, that’s right. You are going to have to have to take time and ask yourself some questions and answer them too. This can be fun. Answer questions like what do I want to have, what do I want to do, what type of person do I want to be, what do I want to learn, what do I like?

3. Take consistent action. Once I had an idea of what I wanted my life to look like I had a starting point. I chose something from my list and did what I could towards making it a reality. Sometimes the step I took was as simple as buying a book or borrowing one. The important thing was that I took action. No matter how small, you have to do something. Action causes momentum to build and momentum is what you will need to make the life that you want a reality.

So, if you’ve been saying “I hate my life” more than you care to admit I want to encourage you to do the following: make a decision, figure out what you want your life to look like, and take consistent action to make that life yours.

Let me know how much fun you’ve had mapping out your new life 🙂
