Welcome to my Vision Mastery Blog with actionable tips, insights, and mindset strategies for taking action on your goals and dreams
We've all heard the old adage that the only constant thing in life is change. No matter what kind of business you have or what kind of life you live, you should always have a plan to work through change.
While change can be scary, it can also be an exciting and growing part of life if handled well. Here are 5 tips to help you make change more manageable.
1. Look for the positive. Make a conscious effort to vocalize or write down positive aspects of your new situation. It is in looking for the good that we find it.
2. Believe in yourself. "You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." That line came from Winnie the Pooh, but it's still true today.
3. Don't stifle your emotions. Think about how much better you feel after a good cry or laughing hard with a friend. Be prepared to experience a range of emotions and then lean into them.
4. Keep your mindset elevated. Take this time to create a morning routine or...
Ever since I can remember, I’ve had an obsession with Egypt…and everything about Egypt.
I’ve always wanted to go there. I don’t even know when this obsession started, I’ve just always had it in my heart to visit Egypt.
But I want to tell you the story of how this dream came to be...
I read everything I could about the country, the people and their ancient beliefs. I started collecting Egyptian items I happen to find.
When our kids were little, my husband traveled to Canada for business. He happened to walk into a store and met a lady who was from Alexandria, Egypt. She and her husband spent 6 months in Canada and 6 months in Egypt. They had an apartment in Alexandria and she offered to let us stay there if we ever wanted to go. At the time we neither had the money nor the ability to leave our young children…but I kept believing I would get there.
The years went by, our kids grew and life with three kids took over our lives as they got...
Have you ever noticed how much you get done in the days or even hours before you leave for a trip? I'm leaving for a trip to Egypt and had several items on my To-Do list I needed to have done before I left. As the time grew closer to departure I kicked into gear and got it all done in time to pack and be ready a day early! Now why couldn’t I do that on a regular basis?
I’ve noticed this when I’ve had unexpected company for dinner as well. A family member or old friend calls me unexpectedly at 3pm and is in town for the evening and wants to come over. I can clean the house, tidy up the deck, have the table set and the food ready by 6pm. There are times in my normal week, when nothing is urgent, and I can’t even get my dinner ready on time!
So I’ve asked myself, what is this phenomenon and why can’t I keep this up all the time?
As I look back now I see a pattern I have unconsciously fallen into of getting more...
I read an old article from Sports Illustrated where they interviewed Tom Brady when he was quarterback for the New England Patriots, a week after his Super Bowl win. They asked him about some of the negative things that some people were saying about him. I was so impressed with his answer. This was at the time when he was involved with the controversy of the deflated game balls for the AFC championship game. He had every reason to be bitter and plant seeds of vengeance on the NFL and Goodell for what they had put him through, but he never did. This is what he said when they asked him about the events of the past two years.
“I guess the point is, when you subject yourself to a lot of criticism…I don’t want to give my power away to other people by letting my own emotions be subjected to what their thoughts or opinions are. What’s the best way to fight that? There’s only one fight I can win, and that is how well I...
Up in the Wasatch mountains of Utah there is an Olympic Park where the Winter Olympic hopefuls train all summer and practice their aerial jumps. There are two huge alpine-type slide jumps that shoot the skiers high in the air as they twist and turn to practice their jumps. Then it drops them into a pool of aerated water, skis and all the gear!
I marveled at how much courage it took to attempt these aerial jumps over and over again. I thought how hard these athletes work for 4, 8, or even 12 years to accomplish their big dream...their BHAG.
A BHAG is a Big Hairy Audacious Goal. Something that you've thought about, or that keeps coming up in the back of your mind. Something that you think "would be nice" but you don't see any way that you could attain or accomplish it.
What is your BHAG...your Olympic size dream? I know that what you have accomplished so far is only a fraction of what's truly possible for...
Celebrate a win every single day and illuminate the world with your light and energy
Your light can illuminate others. You can be the one showing and leading others. You don’t realize that the space that you are in and take up is making an impact on the universe. When you celebrate your wins, you elevate your mindset and people will notice.
Our minds tend to distort our progress and our wins. They’re based on comparisons you’re making with others. But you can use your will power and discipline and look at wins. Look at the facts of what you DID DO this week, what you learned and what you accomplish.
Celebrate a win every day. No matter where you’re at you can find things to celebrate. Doesn’t have to be anything big. Something you learned, something you accomplished no matter how small, something you took off your to-do list. Something nice you said to someone.
Your feelings about what you won this week can deceive you because they’re based on...
For years, I made my vision board by looking through magazines and seeing pictures of things that I might want in the coming year, a bigger house, water ski boat, tropical vacations. I’d cut them out, paste them on my board and expect them to magically appear in my life, not giving any thought as to how I would actually achieve these things! I was like many people who found that their vision board didn’t work to “manifest” the many images they posted.
Over the years I’ve made a lot of vision boards. I’ve also researched and worked on my vision board each year and eventually learned how to make an empowering vision board that really works! One that I can manifest the goals and dreams I’ve posted on them. I also learned why so many others didn’t see their vision boards working for them.
Used correctly, vision boards can help you experience crazy velocity in the accomplishment of your goals. Used incorrectly, they can be a...
The holiday season is a time I take to reflect on the past year and the blessings and opportunities that have come my way. I feel very blessed to be doing the work I do. Being an entrepreneur has been extremely fun for me.
I found this sign and immediately put it up on my office wall. "The best thing about being my own boss is not having one." This for me, is so very true. I love having my own business and creating content that helps inspire you to see the huge potential you have inside yourself to be, do and have whatever it is that you desire. I count the opportunity I have to serve you a huge blessing in my life.
I hope you are able to spend time with family and friends this holiday, enjoy laughter and feel love. This is me wishing you peace and prosperity this holiday season and into 2022.
"There is a destiny that makes us brothers/sisters, none goes their way alone. All that we give to the lives of others comes back into our...
