Why Not Invest in YOU?!?!

Lately I have been really tapping into the power and wisdom of investing in oneself. I am a firm believer in personal development and ongoing learning. In fact I consider myself a self-educated junkie that never stops and I LIKE that about me!

I am forever taking courses, buying courses, buying books, reading books, attending webinars, watching videos, collaborating with others, traveling for training, signing up for people’s newsletters etc. etc. etc. You get the idea. I am an info maniac 🙂

Now the cool part is that I DO use all of this info! Being a Life and Business Coach as well as my newest addition to my coaches kit of a Certified Infinite Possibilities Trainer, I am able to help others by using all of this ongoing learning I partake in. So it helps me and it helps others. I see myself as a shortcut for people or a bridge of information. I can coach them and help them fast track certain information to help make it easier and faster for them to make changes or implement knowledge that can get them the results they want or need. It works. 🙂

I truly am in love with my new work as an Infinite Possibilities Trainer and Coach! I travelled to Denver, Colorado this month and trained under Mike Dooley directly. Mike was in the movie “The Secret”. Even the words ‘infinite possibilities’ resonates with me. I love helping people to expand their minds, their hearts, and their options in life. And I love that we live in an era of infinite information that people share and that the internet allows us to benefit from all of this. These are truly exciting times.

Wrapping this post up, I would encourage anyone and everyone to be open to investing in themselves. Who better to invest in but YOU?

Never stop learning, keep growing, keep evolving and watch your life soar to magical heights! I believe in YOU!

Thriving not Surviving!

Thriving Not Surviving!

Life is a beautiful adventure and no matter where you’ve been thus far in your life and no matter what  so called mistakes you’ve made, this is true for all of us… thriving is our default setting, not ‘surviving’. How exciting is this? We are here on earth to thrive and to reach for the stars!

Many of us suffer from limiting beliefs that can affect our ability to thrive, but the exciting news is we can change our thoughts and it is as simple as changing our mind. Thoughts are things and thoughts become things. Thoughts are tools we can use to create the lives we desire.

Thoughts about our business also create our reality about out businesses and what we have to offer.

What kind of thoughts do you have? Do your thoughts revolve around being excited to make a difference in the world? Do you have thoughts that support your belief in the fact that you have something amazing to offers others?

Are your thoughts SELF-empowering?

Do you have thoughts like:

I can do this!

Things work well for me!

I love what I do!

I love helping people!

I love serving others!

I have a lot to offer!

The products and services that I offer and recommend HELP others!

I am here to help!

Things work easily for me!

There is no limit to the thoughts you can start generating and running through your own programmer… your mind! Start controlling your thoughts rather than having your thoughts control you and watch the magic happen. 😊

A Shocking Stat Goes New Age

Customer Service

I was just reading an old book I found from 1995 about customer service.

I saw this statistic and thought WOW!

Here it is:

If someone has a bad customer service experience, they would likely share their bad experience with about 11 people. This was BEFORE social media.

So in 1995 that stat was alarming enough, considering both customer acquisition and retention are a huge component of having lifetime share of customer and increasing business growth…. BUT now we have social media and can you just imagine how far and wide a negative review can travel?

This is why it’s extremely important to provide outstanding customer service that goes above and beyond the competition. In fact, it is wise to over deliver and under promise.

This sure made me think twice about the importance of customer service. I personally LOVE serving my customers and I en-JOY doing whatever I can to both develop long term relationships and to foster growth for both my customer and myself. To me, it is all about mutual benefit. It is never a one sided relationship and I have always understood that every customer or relationship that I have may be a gateway to an entire ocean of customers so one customer really equals a world of customers.

I hope you found this post today insightful and I would love to hear your comments.

Want to Write & Need Inspiration?

Are You Wanting to Start Writing or Another Art Form?

I talk to so many people who would like to write in some way, shape or form. This was me too. I remember the day I heard this phrase. It changed my life! “A writer is someone who writes”.  This was profound to me and is one of my most treasured go-to principals now.  Use it for inspiration and to get started on anything. Ex. “A cook is someone who cooks“. “A blogger is someone who blogs“. You get the idea.  We just need to get started!

When you have an idea, the best time to ‘birth’ the idea is right away and when you birth (start) it, you need to feed that baby right away. So this means we need to start doing things on a consistent basis. For example, we must feed a baby often when it’s born or it will not live. It’s the same with ideas or inspiration, we need to FEED that baby (idea) right away and often! 🙂

Riding The Waves of Inspiration

Inspiration comes in waves so you have to ride the waves and know that they are normal, but being consistent is a dedication and a mindset. If you want to write blog posts for example, it’s a good idea to commit to writing on a regular basis. Let’s say you are going to write at least one a day for 5 days a week. Some days you may not be as inspired, as others days, but the idea here is to be dedicated to writing regardless. Or on the days you are extra inspired you can accumulate a few days worth and be prepared for those days when you are not as inspired. Either way, being consistent in your content delivery and your creation builds momentum and shows your readers and the universe that you are becoming a serious writer, because you write and you write often. When you write and write often on a consistent basis you will also improve your skill set and things will flow easier too! This is something I am working on as well and just by writing this, I feel more inspired to be more consistent. lol. There truly is a power in words!

“Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.” Stephen King

The wonderful thing about writing is that you may do the work once, but you can use that creation over and over again in the future. I have two other blogs one my general blog for my Life Coaching https://maggieholbik.blog/ and another for my Nutrition Business https://maggiesvitamins.blog/ and I find myself regularly sending people to blog posts that I have done in the past. They might ask me a question about a certain ailment or nutrient, or they need help with an emotional issue and I send them the blog post I wrote on or around that topic. It is super helpful for me and for my clients and I am sure others who are reading them, which is the whole point 🙂

So I never see writing as a waste of my time. Not only do I LOVE to write now that ‘I’ve started to write’, but I know that my words will live on for future generations to perhaps benefit from and I have a resource to add value for the people in my life and those I will touch along the way.

I hope you are inspired to pick up the pen, so to speak, and feed the birth of your idea or inspiration and to get started today. 🙂

30 Freaking Seconds Can Change Your Life & Make Your Dreams Come True!

Everyday I try to start the day with some positive inspiration and today I stumbled upon this YouTube Video that I thought was AWESOME! It is by Mel Robbins and is called “The No. 1 Habit Billionaires Run Daily”. I will post the link at the end of this post.

I highly recommend everyone watch this video! I consider myself a master manifestor in my life but I am always open to learning and growing and finding new ways to hone my skill of manifesting, and this video did not disappoint!

Here are some highlights:

Mel likes to call the skill she teaches “Seeing Signs”. I like this. Basically she talks about reprogramming your brain by utilizing the science based system of your ‘Reticular Activation System’. I have shortened it to my RAS.

The RAS is that part of our brain that will go through our day looking for evidence to confirm our beliefs, all day long!  The key is to reprogram your beliefs to ones that are ones that you do want to activate and bring about. Personally, I have become excellent at this (I was going to say pretty good, but I am programming here so I use my words wisely wink wink), and now I don’t even consider it reprogramming but ‘programming’. I program with my intention, thoughts, and focus on what I want, where I am headed and what I want to create in my life. I then feel how that would feel, just as Mel suggests in this video. Again I highly recommend you watch it. I watched it twice and will watch again. The first time I listened and the second time, I listened, stopped it and took notes. The time it took for me to listen and take notes will pay off big time in my life, so to me it is worth every second!

Here is Mel’s To-Do portion in a short version.

For 30 days:

Day 1 go through your life goals. For 30 seconds, close your eyes and visualize what that goal or goals look like this year.  How does your life look like when you achieve this goal or goals? How do you feel? See yourself feeling the way you will be feeling. See yourself enjoying your new lifestyle, working out at the gym, asking for the raise, being more empowered, or whatever it is  that you are seeking.  You are reprogramming your brain here and changing  the network of neurons that act as a filter. The more you actually believe and see yourself this way, the more everything starts to shift and the more evidence to support these new beliefs will start to appear.

As you start to visualize and feel, you start to reprogram your RAS, which is a system of neurons that acts like a filter and it starts to spot opportunities and also starts to help you SEE evidence that you are confident, you are capable, you are financially free, etc., etc.

You know, this got me thinking that this is very much like ad re-targeting. You know what I am talking about…. we search something online or on Facebook and then we see all these ads for that type of product or service and we get kind of creeped out? Yep, I knew you’d know what I meant. 🙂 I see this system of RAS as brain re-targeting. We use our own minds to re-target our programming and to bring to us the ads (new evidence) of the new beliefs. Pretty cool right?

So here is the link to Mel’s video Link to Mel’s Video

The 9 to 5 Job Paradigm is Shifting to Freelancing & FREEDOM!!!

A Whole New Way of Working!

Call it what you want: Freelancing, working for yourself, designing the life you want, being a solopreneur, entrepreneur, consultant or any label you give it, the times are changing! And for those who embrace it, it is an exciting time!!!

Check out this stat and please note these pics are credit source: Upwork

The times are definitely changing and not only are the 9 to 5 jobs diminishing, people want to have and create lifestyles that adapt to their needs and wants. When one can customize a lifestyle and do the work that they love, there is a freedom like none other.

Working for oneself has a lot of other health benefits as well.  Being your own boss can be a very healthy situation for many reasons, beyond the fact that you can nap when you want too. 🙂

This was my cat Bella yesterday. She looked so cute and I just had to join her for a nap! 🙂 Any excuse will do. 🙂

bella napping

One of the great benefits that I love is that I can work in my health protocols into my workday. I take time to weave in my daily yoga, exercise, reading positive and uplifting material, taking my vitamins etc. and I make my own schedule. I am not afraid of working and in fact I have to work at not working so much because quite frankly I love it so much! When you love what you do, who you work for, and you can bring your artistic self into the mix, it’s easy to love what you do!

And let’s talk about technology changing the game!!!!! Everyday technology and the power of the internet is allowing people to work and play from anywhere! Truly!  I personally get more and more excited as I utlilize new technologies, platforms, photo editors, websites, free resources, free education, etc. etc. etc.! What an EXCITING and THRILLING time to be alive!!

fleducation

And speaking of education. That is changing too. Check out this stat. “Freelancers value skills training over a formal education”. Wow! Another exciting thing is if you do like education, education is everywhere and often free at sites like http://www.edex.com. One can even get a free university education now right from home! I personally just work on developing skills that enhance what I am doing to help me better work for myself and hone my craft. My craft to me is designing the lifestyle that I en-JOY and love, and creating multiple income streams as a by-product of doing what I love.

One of the best parts of this paradigm shift, is that the artists of the world can share their gifts. I see artists flourishing everyday and weaving their gifts into their work. Whether you are a creative person who likes to write, paint, draw, use words, sing, cook, are into health and wellness, educating, helping, teaching, crafts, photography etc. etc. etc…..  you too can participate in this new paradigm!!!

It is time to use our gifts and share them with the world! If you are looking to find your passion or work for yourself, I encourage you to open your mind to the ENDLESS possibilities. There are lots of great resources out there and even coaches who can help you get started on your path to freedom. 🙂

Amassing Wealth is Easy

“Amassing Wealth is Easy”.  Thoughts become things, and it’s no more difficult to playfully imagine a million dollars than it is to imagine one dollar. Give yourself permission to think BIG!” Mike Dooley from his book “Leveraging the Universe”.

I completely agree with this quote by Mike Dooley. I am an avid watcher of my thoughts and I even have my own quote about thoughts: “I control my thoughts, they don’t control me.” 🙂

i control my thoughts

I see thoughts as tools and I use my tools wisely. In fact, I like to hone my craft (my life) with my tools. I believe in abundance and abundance comes to me. When one starts to tap into abundance, one realizes that abundance is much more than just material abundance. Material abundance is awesome, but abundance can also include, and is not limited to, health, happiness, love, JOY, fun, laughter, great food, experiences, travel and more.  I say it time and time again and I will say it again “What you seek, seeks YOU!”

The first step in attracting abundance of any kind is by believing in the magic of abundance. I personally am in hook, line and sinker, because why not? Thinking BIG has allowed me to create a life that I LOVE! And I just keep on expanding on it everyday.

When you tap into controlling your thoughts and using them as tools for catalysing change, you can create magical experiences and tap into all that the universe has to offer. It’s all there for the taking!

Here are a few tips for tapping into this pool of abundance:

  1. Be very clear with your thoughts. The Uni, (as I like to call it… aka The Universe:-), does not like wishy washy.  Sending unclear messages and thoughts, creates wishy washy results. Be very clear on your wishes and desires. For example, I am very clear that I both believe in, and allow abundance to fill my life in joyous ways, and it does! Like the diamond in the picture, think clarity and be crystal clear!
  2. Believe you are deserving! As a Life Coach I often see people ‘playing small’ or ‘settling for less’, because often they are too afraid to believe that it can happen to them or for them. Or, they think if they just ‘settle’, they won’t be disappointed. What is really happening in all of this, is that they do not feel worthy. Work on worthiness. Do whatever you need to do… affirmations, read positive material, search out Youtube videos on self-esteem and worthiness, hire a life coach or therapist… do whatever you need to do to turn up your worthy dial and do it asap. Life is but a fleeting moment and we have no time to waste! Get er done!
  3. There’s enough for everyone! In fact, by you having yours, you will spill over and help all of those around you.
  4. Money is a Tool just like your thoughts.  For example, a hammer, which is also a tool, can  build a house or destroy a house. Same with money. It’s a tool that you can do some really good and super cool things with. It’s all how you use the tools!

I will close for now as I don’t like to make these posts too long. I know we are all busy. I will write more on this topic in the future, but in the meantime start thinking BIG right now and do it with feeling. ‘Feel’ the feeling of abundance and see yourself loving your joyous and juicy life that you are creating right now!
