Turn Your Beliefs into Rocket Fuel

Blog-header-construct.jpg

Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.
- Henry Ford

As Ford so correctly stated, your beliefs can limit or boost your potential. Whether you start off with “I don’t think I could do that”, or with “If it can be done, then I can do it”, that’s your choice; but it will impact directly in your potential, and consequently, in your results.

 

There is a cyclic relationship between beliefs, potential, action, and results.

Your beliefs control the way you tap into your potential; this potential will determine the intensity of your actions, your actions then will determine your results, and those results will add to your beliefs.

 

No matter the task at hand, you get what you expect.
Success breeds success, and failure breeds more failure.

 

If you expect failure, you limit yourself and what you can do right from the start, you’re telling your brain to expect failure, thus signaling your nervous system to respond in a certain way; you limit your potential by limiting your capability to take action – you won’t try hard enough…

You might say “I’ll try, but I don’t think it’s going to work”…
Forget about that, the “I’ll try” It’s the battle cry of the wimp.

Your actions will be uncertain, weak, incongruent, and hesitant, thus limiting your beliefs even more.

You limit your frame of reference, and you limit your ability to learn and grow and to realize your full potential.

It’s a classic downward spiral.

 

The opposite is also true. You can start with great expectations so w you e can amplify our ability to create great results; so instead of limiting yourself, you empower yourself.

When you believe with every beat of our heart that you will succeed, you tap into a good deal of potential, so you’re excited, energized, you’re full of high expectations; so your actions and results will be great too. Each success creates more belief and momentum to succeed on a greater scale each turn of the cycle!

 

That doesn’t mean you won’t screw up from time to time, but if you can learn to bounce back up every time, you would become more resourceful, and you will rig the game in our favor.

If you can maintain empowering belief systems no matter what, you will keep coming back with enough action and resourcefulness, eventually, you will succeed.

 

 

What is one challenge in your life where, if you chose to adopt a new belief about it, you could dramatically change your results?

Think about it…

 

 

Stay strong.

The Fascinating Power of Self-Confidence

Blog-header-construct.jpg

Let’s talk about confidence.

Not as a memory of what it once used to be, but its current state. Let’s talk straight about it, objectively…

When was the last time you literally jumped out of bed in an exciting mood and made even Mondays tremble before your will power?

Now, think about the opposite; how about those times when you need to be splashed with a bucket of cold water to get you out of bed?

 

The way you feel on any given day is the direct result of your physiological state, your mental state, and even your emotional state.

When you recreate your stress and anxiety, you perpetuate a life of depression, so you end up believing that, no matter what you do, everything is going bad; and that whatever you might do, you will doing it wrong.

Your confidence will take a big hit, and with it, your Success/Doom cycle gets influenced.

 

Let me explain:

Every time you undertake any task in life, you go through a cycle in which you first tap into your Potential. Such Potential is limitless, but it gets easily influenced by our Beliefs; if you don’t believe something is going to work –let’s say you had a poor previous experience, how much of that Potential do you think you are going to tap? Probably not too much, right?

And you’re not going to feel so certain about it, and perhaps even a little fearful…

So, with that little Potential available for you at the time, are you going to take the required Massive Action on that matter?

Again, no.

So, with that little Potential, taking such a poor Action, what kind of Results are you going to get?

Lousy Results, most likely; and that Results in a way will come to “confirm” your Beliefs that “it’s not going to work”, so you’d probably go “see? I told you it wasn’t going to work”…

So the next time you need to start this Cycle, your Beliefs are even more negative, and there you go again, spiraling down and down.

 

Here’s the good news: this Cycle works the other way as well.

If you consistently feel gratitude, joy, contentment, and love, you’re directly affecting your Beliefs, moving your life into an amazing, positive state in which nothing really bothers you.
You tap purely into your Potential because, hey! You can make anything happen!

You move through your day with purpose, taking Massive Action to complete your tasks with enthusiasm, thus, creating extraordinary results –which can be either the achievement of goals or the learning experience of valuable life lessons.

 

This is the way you create an outstanding self-confidence.
When you’re in control of your emotions, you influence your actions directly.
When you’re fueled by a sense of well-being, and trust, you radiate calm and happiness; and those around you can feel it and will react to it accordingly.

 

Confidence is not something you’re born with or just happens to have, it’s something you create.

It is the feeling of certainty that you can accomplish whatever you set out to do.

Like any other emotion or skill, all you need is to train yourself, so you can access it and use it to your advantage at will.

 

Practice tapping into confidence more and more each day, and begin to believe in yourself.

 

Decide today that you’re going to be more confident, and positive and you’ll have no other choice but to succeed.

Stay strong!

Plug into your Decision-Making Power

Blog-header-construct.jpg

We make decisions every moment, day after day. Mostly these decisions are small and inconsequential, but sometimes they are life-changing events.

Ultimately, the outcome of your days, your years, and your entire life are mostly defined by the sum of your decisions, and the following actions you take every step of the way.

 

There is a lot of power in making a decision, any decision; even those you take when you’re not completely sure that it’s the right one. Once you realize the overwhelming impact that making decisions can have, you will definitely start to live the best part of your life.

 

But that doesn’t make it any easier, right?

There’s a fun saying that goes: “the road of life is paved with flat squirrels who couldn’t make a decision.”

We tend to get paralyzed at some point, like the squirrel on the road in front of a pair of headlights; and knowing upfront the impact our decisions can have doesn’t make the fear go away. What if we make the wrong one? How would that affect our lives?

You might think then “so, I’d better not take any decision at all”… but that is also a decision –and a very bad one; one that also holds the power to create quite a mess.

 

The inability to make a decision can leave you frozen in place when changes are necessary. It can also devastate your confidence, your happiness, and your overall emotional well-being.

Any decision is better than no decision at all.

Push past the fear and doubts, and start taking control over your life’s outcomes; make decisions quickly, take action steps immediately, and visualize the end result you’re looking for.

 

Commit to a decision, follow through, and you can set yourself up for success every time.

 Stay strong/

Defining your Life Purpose

2Blog-header-construct.jpg

We’re all born with a distinctive Purpose; and both, the identification and pursuit of that Purpose are the best things you can do in order to live a fulfilling, happy life.

Today, we’re going to talk about how to identify your Purpose and then to create a Purpose Statement, which will become a road map to guide you through life.

 

What do you love to do?

First of all, you need to mentally explore the things you already love to do and always come easily to you…
Think about those things… What do you love to do most? What are those things that, when you’re doing them, time seems to stop?
It might be something you work hard to develop into a talent, but that it felt natural to you, like going down a water slide.

Make a list of all that comes to your mind and see what they all have in common.

 

1. What qualities do you love expressing?

Now, ask yourself, what are two values that you most enjoy expressing in the world? My two values are Courage and Integrity; what are yours? Remember to write them down.

 

2. In what way do you express them?

Once you have those two identified, what are two ways in which you enjoy expressing them? My ways are Inspiring and empowering others.

Write down yours now.

 

3. What does a “perfect world” look like to you?

Finally, take a moment now to describe what a “perfect world” would look like to you. How is every one relating to each other? What are they doing on a daily basis?
For me, in a perfect world, people will be living the higher version of themselves; everyone is doing what they love most and sharing it with others.

Write down your own description now, because the next step is to combine all the previous steps to create your Life Purpose Statement.

 

Create your Life Purpose Statement

Ok, now take a moment to combine the 3 points into one single statement that will start to outline your Purpose.
I wrote down my Purpose here. Use it as a guideline to create yours:

My Life Purpose is to inspire and empower (2) people to live the higher version of themselves (3), in a context of courage and integrity (1).

Every time I’m living it, I feel like I’m “in the zone”; I love every minute of it. I could spend 8 hours straight and it feels like playing! Don’t get me wrong, work and effort are in did a requirement, but suffering is not. If you are stressed and suffering, you’re probably living your life off-course; off-purpose, we could say.

Create your Life Purpose Statement and start guiding your life to a more satisfying experience.

See you next week.
Stay strong!

Behind every problem lies the Gift of Growth

Problems are gifts; it just happens we’re not always able to see beyond its wrapping.

Problems are an inevitable part of life. They always come and go, only sometimes, they tend to come back the same, time after time.

Those are the problems that don’t seem to go away, they stick around longer than usual, and our customary problem-solving methods don’t seem to apply to them; they keep coming back in various different ways, but all the same in essence. And the longer you take in addressing them, the more intensity they display.

This is the Universe (you may call it God, Karma, you name it) have to teach us life lessons in order for us to grow and expand.

 

We all tend to look at problems as something from the outside world, over which we have little or no control; when in reality, all it would take to resolve would be a little –or sometimes, big- shift in our thinking and behavior.

Inside each of them, there is a lesson we haven’t learned yet, and they will keep appearing until we do.

 

 

The approach to these type of recurring problems is never to keep blaming external circumstances; instead, you should look at yourself in the mirror and ask why you keep making poor decisions and still keep expecting different results.

You can look at your problems as immutable outside circumstances, or as obstacles that are there for you to overcome and learn from.

 

If you choose to look at them as learning opportunities, this is how you can tackle them:

 

1. Look at the bigger picture.

Ask yourself why you do the things you do. Do you see any patterns there? If you can identify and then interrupt the patterns that don’t serve you, you will get better results.

 

2. You gotta change something.

You know how the saying goes; if you keep doing the same thing, you’ll keep getting the same results. You got to make a change. Decide what two-degree shift you are willing to commit to in order to turn your sailboat and change your destination –and your outcome, once and for all.

 

How you look at your problems will influence how you deal with them directly.
If you are able to see the gift of growth inside each obstacle and search for the solution within yourself, you can use them to propel your life forward.

 

 

Always remember, life is happening for you, not to you.

Stay strong!
