There is More Than One Way to Eat an Ice Cream Cone!

“Think for yourself at all times.”

― Bohdi Sanders

I ran across this picture of my daughter the very first time she ate an ice cream cone. It made me smile BIG TIME🙂 She is now 13.

It made me ponder on it and apply it to business and life. Sometimes we are just learning something new and we have no idea and we shouldn’t… we’ve never done it before! And there is always more than one way to do things anyways.

Just like Sivanna eating this ice cream cone. You can bet your bottom dollar that she consumed the entire thing, she just began with the cone verses the ice cream. 🙂

As business owners or entrepreneurs we are always learning and growing. Every day I study something. I find that I start off feeling kind of lost, but I keep plugging away at whatever it is, and then all of a sudden the scales tip and it becomes super easy or I ‘get it’. And sometimes we start at the beginning and sometimes the end and work backwards. Learning comes in all shapes, sizes, forms and patterns.

I am going to remember this visual to remind myself of this:

  1. There is no right or wrong way to do anything.
  2. Be open to trying things in a different way.
  3. We learn as we go.
  4. Just because it has always been done that way does not mean it has to continue.
  5. Think outside the box or in this case the cone. 🙂
  6. It all begins with the first lick … and finally
  7. We should eat more ice cream cones.

Have a great day everybody and be open to trying new things in new ways. 🙂 Oh and if you liked and enJOYed this post why not Share it? It may sound cliche but sharing IS caring. Thank you!

Using Your Dreams to Manifest What You Want in Life! It Works!

Early this morning I had a bad dream… one of those really bad dreams. I won’t go into details but it was ‘so real’. In my dream my husband had died in a fire in a big building and I thought my daughter had too but she came out. Anyhow while telling my daughter and hubby about the dream, I wept and wept because it was ‘so real’.

My daughter then shared with me about a dream that she had that she will never forget and that had scared her because it was ‘so real’. She started to weep too!

I shared with her an exercise that I use with my coaching clients about using that same emotional power from a dream that seems ‘so real’ for manifesting what we want in life.

For manifesting, we(man) are the main component in creating the manifestation or what we want to create. We need to first visualize/see what we want to happen, or to achieve, or to acquire in our life and then we need to FEEL as though we are already there experiencing that which we wish to create.

It’s just like the dream! The dream ‘feels real’ because you are FEELING the feelings of this event actually occurring. This is a huge big deal. Really think on this. A dream IS real as it is a manifestation of a concept. The key to future manifesting is to first dream up the concept, SEE it, and put the feeling behind it as though it were already real and than detach from the HOW’s of how it will happen and then let the invisible forces go to work to create your manifestation.

This stuff really works. I have seen it happen over and over again in my life and it always seems like a delightful surprise but I know that I created it! And I am getting really really good at this. This works like magic folks. 🙂

I believe in this so much, today I am sharing this same blog post on all of my blogs! 🙂

Have a great day everyone!

Embrace Change

“You should never fear change. The cost of not evolving is far scarier.” Source Unknown

Every day is a new beginning and with each new day comes new opportunities. Part of new opportunities involves change.

Changes come in many forms and ways, but one a lot of people overlook is changing one’s perception. How do you see or look at things? How do you look at or view change itself? Is it something you resist or is it something you embrace? It’s a choice really.

I remember years ago meeting a gentlemen who had just lost a family member in an unfortunate manner. We were talking about this event and the conversation led us to change. He talked about how he loved change. He said he even got excited about change and that he both embraced and welcomed it.

That moment ‘changed’ me forever. I never saw change the same way again. It opened me up to embracing change and to being more open minded about it rather than fearing it.

Something to ponder……
