Be In Alignment Not In Control

In business and in life we often want to ‘be in control’, but it is much better to be in alignment and aligned with our purpose.

Being in alignment means that we allow things to come to us that fit and match our purpose and mission. We trust that if we are clear in our vision and in our hearts, the rest will follow.

It is hard to try and control everything. Being in alignment is so much easier!

Align with who you are and with what your business is and offers.

An easy way to practice alignment is to serve others and then the magic happens. When we go forth with the intention to ‘serve others’ alignment happens almost on auto pilot because we are in align with serving our customers and clients.

Have a great day everyone!

Everything Is Figureoutable

Yesterday I got in the mail Marie Forleo’s new book “Everything is Figureoutable”.

I just started reading it and I know I am going to LOVE it. Just what I’ve read so far this morning, has fired me up. She talks about her mother and it reminds me so much of my late mother.

Here’s what I mean…. this is from the book on page 3

Marie came home one day to find her Mother fixing a little radio that she loved and that had broken. This is what transpired:

Marie says: “I stood there for a second, watching her work her magic. Finally, I asked, “Hey Mom, how do you know how to do so many different things that you’ve never done before, without anyone showing you how to do it?”

She put down her screwdriver, turned to me, and said, “Don’t be silly, Ree. Nothing in life is that complicated. You can do whatever you set your mind to if you just roll up your sleeves, get in there, and do it. Everything is figureoutable.”

I was transfixed, reveling in and repeating these words in my head: Everything is figureoutable. Everything is figureoutable. Holy shit, yes….


I love this attitude. My own mother was exactly like this. She lived in Northern Ontario, Canada, and had access to very little but could fix anything or figure out a way to make things happen. She also had an attitude of anything is possible. I can hear her in my mind “Oh, you can to”. This was one of her favorite sayings in response to someone wondering if something was possible or if they could indeed do something in life.

I know I will be highly recommending this book and can’t wait to dig in!

I will close with a quote from page 7 of the book: “We need you. We need your heart, your voice, your courage, your JOY, your creativity, your compassion, your love, and your gift. Now, more than ever.”

Earlier today I wrote a blog most over on my main blog MaggieHolbikBlog about exactly this through using our own expression and creativity. You may enJOY reading that post too. Here is the link:

I hope that you find the courage to know that everthing is indeed ‘figureoutable’ so that you can step up to the plate of life and share your gifts with the world. As Marie says “We need YOU!”

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

Getting Results from Knowing What You Want!

Everyday I receive a note from, also known as “Notes from the Universe”. Today’s was great and inspired me to write a quick blog post around it. Here it is:
True life mastery, Maggie, is more a function of knowing what to want, than knowing how to get what you want. 
   The Universe
This one hit me perfectly. I have a note on my fridge that says something like “All business starts and ends in my mind.” This is a saying I made up. I know for a fact that the results I get all start with my mind and my intention.
When my daughter was little she used to call it ‘minding’. She would say something like “Mom, I minded it”. And I knew exactly what she meant!
I mind everyday. In fact, I have become a ‘Master Minder’ and ‘Master Manifestor’. 
I attribute most of my success at all of this from my understanding of how clear one must be with universal laws. You truly have to know what you want and to be very clear about it. The universe does not respond well, or maybe I should say, IT DOES respond well, to confusion. LOL!
When one is wishy washy and uncertain, guess what you get in your life and business? More uncertainty and things bouncing around. But when you know without a shadow of a doubt that success or greatness, or servitude is what you seek, it will seek you back!
For more on this you can read a post over on my main blog What You Seek Seeks YOU!
Read carefully what the second part of the note from the universe  says  “than knowing how to get what you want”. Let that sink in. To me, this means I must be clear on what I want and what is important to ME, and then I TRUST in the power of the energetic alignment of that which I am seeking is seeking me. It’s soooooooooooo simple! I personally do this everyday and all the time.
For me it’s getting to the point that it almost happens instantaneously!  For example, a little story. The other day I was thinking I would like an extra thermos type carafe for my coffee maker so I could take one with me while driving and then still have one at home… you know make and go 🙂 Well later that day I walked into one of my favorite thrift stores and BAM, the exact one I wanted and needed.  Exactly! And only $3, I might add. 🙂
The carafe story is a little example of the power of being clear on what you want and then allowing it to match up, but it matters not…. if one can do it with a coffee pot, one can do it with something larger like success in business, or happiness, or more JOY! It all responds to the same laws!!!!
One of my missions is to help my clients with these powerful truths.  In fact, in May, I am travelling to Denver and going to become a certified “Infinite Possibilities Trainer”. I know pretty cool right?
Anyhoo, I gotta run and getting ready for a workshop I am attending at the Northwestern Innovations Centre NWO Website Link    where I will be learning about patents! I love learning and it also helps me to be a better coach.
Have a great day everyone!
