Find Opportunities in Difficulties

“A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities and an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his difficulties”.

Harry S. Truman

I thought this quote was awesome and timely. We are in a time of transition.

Are times challenging? Yes.

Are changes happening every day? Yes.

However, with that said, there are people and businesses right now that are taking this exact time of difficulties to make opportunities!

This is especially true in the online world. It is Sunday morning and I just saw a Purolator delivery truck on my street. It made me think that deliveries are now happening every day of the week to meet the demand of so many parcels and packages needing to be delivered at this time in history.

There are opportunities everywhere and we need only be open to see them. Time and time again we are reminded of the old saying that ‘change is the only constant’ but do you do what is also true?..… Opportunities are ALWAYS present too!

I hope that you go into this week with the mindset of excitement and that you look at all of the opportunities that present themselves to you.

Having an abundant mindset is a key piece in the attracting abundance puzzle that is actually really easy to figure out, just sayin.

It goes something like this: Keep your thoughts on what you do want and not on what you don’t want. Be open to opportunities and see challenges and difficulties as catalysts for growth and opportunity, all while you maintain a positive and expansive mindset. 🙂

Have a great day today everyone and bring it on!

Stop Worrying & Serve Others~~~

Group of people on peak mountain climbing and helping each other as a team.

“If people spent as much time worrying about how to make a difference as they do about how they could make money, then they would soon find themselves rich beyond belief.” 

Brendon Burchard

It is simple really. Just show up, be who you are and have the best interest of others in mind. We call this ‘serving others’. And when we serve others we serve the world and we make a difference. And when we make a difference abundance flows back to us in many ways.

Thinkin Right

You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.

James Allen

I love this quote. It is ABSOLUTELY true and it applies to both life and business.

How do you see yourself? No matter if you are an entrepreneur just starting out, or a huge giant company? How do you see yourself? How do think about yourself? How do you feel about yourself?

I will share with you how I see me just to get my message across:

I am a super successful, happy, loving, kind, caring and serving individual who is making an impact on the world. My many business ventures are all thriving and through those income streams I am impacting others for the better. I am thinking about how I have tapped into abundance in all areas of my life… financial, health, wealth, happiness, JOY, connection with others… and the list goes on. This life is AMAZING I’m thinking! Wow. The more I think about it, the better it gets. I think I will keep thinking and feeling this way. 🙂

Wow. That felt awesome just to write it. What a way to start my day. I’m thinking I like it. 🙂 I hope you did too! Have a great day and keep thinkin the right way. 🙂

This Tissue is a HUGE Deal… HUGE * HUGE * HUGE *

This morning I was on one of my exercise machines, a whole body vibration platform, and I was thinking “I need a Kleenex/Tissue”… As I say it my eyes turn toward my stack of books and boof there is one tissue!

I was like “Wow, I manifested a tissue!” And ONE tissue. That was exactly what I wanted.

Now you might think I’m crazy but I don’t. This is a HUGE deal. Do you know why?

Because manifesting is easy once you tap into the universal laws, but here is the best part….. It’s just as easy to manifest a million dollars as it is one dollar! So just knowing that you can manifest a tissue means you can manifest ANYTHING!

There are no limits really. 🙂 I for one, was just grateful for the once again reminder of the power of manifestation. I manifest things into my life ALL the time. But now I just have a ball with it. I have been saying for years “I AM a Master Manifestor” and guess what? Yep… I am 🙂

Be careful with the stories you tell and the beliefs you buy into. They will either take your where you want to go or limit you in life. Choose wisely my friends.

Happy Manifesting…

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!

Pay Your Bills With JOY & Watch What Happens!

Pay your bills with JOY and watch what happens!

Today I was doing some organizing and lately I have been into using decorative file folders. I love to decorate my life and work with anything that makes me feel good. In fact I am starting my own e-commerce store with products just for that! It’s pretty exciting and fun so stay tuned for that. 🙂

Anyhow, this morning, I was making a new file folder for my ‘bills to pay’ and here is what I wrote on the tab: “Bills to Pay with JOY”

One of the secrets I have learned along the way when it comes to attracting abundance into your life is this: It is hugely important to show your appreciation and your JOY for abundance. One of the ways you can do this easily is by being HAPPY for other people who are successful. Yes this is correct. When you see happy, successful and abundant people, be super happy for them. This tells the universe that you are tapped into the art of abundance and then you can call it to you. You will then vibrate in an abundant frequency and call more abundance to you. Keep in mind that abundance is not just money, it’s all the good stuff… love, JOY, happiness, success, expansion, growth, etc. etc. etc.

When you look at someone else and are feeling personal lack or resentment, guess what you will attract? Yep, lack and more resentment. Think of the word re-sent-ment…. you will resend that frequency back to yourself!

So back to my file folder. When you pay your bills do it with JOY. This tells the universe that you have enough to give and that you are able to pay those bills. And even if you are currently struggling with finances, it still shifts your personal frequency to that of abundance, expansion and there is more coming!!!!

I promise you that if you can shift your thinking and feeling from lack to appreciation, magic will happen. The laws are very simple and when it comes to abundance in any area of life, the more you can get in the vibe of it, the more of it you can attract it to you. It’s an awesome thing really. 🙂

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!
