Welcome to my Vision Mastery Blog with actionable tips, insights, and mindset strategies for taking action on your goals and dreams
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...
For each of us, the end of the year brings on thoughts of looking back at what our year was like and what we what we want to accomplish in the next year. We start thinking about goals like losing weight and making money. But do we also think about who we want to become?
When thinking about “who do I need to become” to grow and achieve my goals, here are some questions you can ask yourself in the coming week. Ponder these questions and journal your thoughts to refer back to later. As you sit and ponder, answers will come to you. This will help you discover more about who you are and who you can become.
During this holiday time of the year I know things can get chaotic. We can stress over all the "stuff" we want to do before the end of the year and we start to lose our steam.
And as these things pile up in our minds our energy meter begins to drop!
This is when you might work on those things that add that “extra energy boost” – for your head and your heart.
I'm actually writing this in Mexico, where I'm re-energizing with family and friends. Normally though, I'd be stressing because of all the stuff I had to do before Christmas. I would have to use my own tips I'm sharing with you below to keep my energy up during the holiday.
When you feel your energy meter lowering here are some tips to get your energy back up so you can make it through the holiday season while still having fun:
Be aware of what things trigger you for stress. Stress-induced emotions consume huge amounts of energy. Try to lighten your load by...
Do you ever hold back from telling people what you do and how you help others because it feels like you’re bragging? If you grew up like me you may have been taught:
Don’t be “braggart”
Don’t monopolize the conversation with what you know
Be considerate of what others have to say
And those are all good things to learn and to keep in mind. But as I looked back on building my business I had an epiphany. I realized I passed up many great opportunities to promote myself to the people I got to meet, teach, and work beside. I held back because somehow in my head I felt like I was “bragging”.
Have you ever felt this same way? I have met so many who do! But with this epiphany I realized that we all have unique strengths and knowledge and gifts we need to share with those we come in contact with. We can lift others and impact their lives!
Looking back here are 3 actions I took to think differently about promoting myself:
The power of belief is so strong that whatever you put into your mind can happen. So start channeling your belief into what you want. Don’t look at the future for what you see…look at it for what you want it to be.
Early in my career, I flew on commercial flights quite often to speak in different areas of the country. I love to travel, but many times I had the problem of getting sick on the take-off and landing. Each time I flew I started projecting in my head how the take-off and landing would be, and how nauseated I would feel.
Then during a promotion my mentors held, I won a trip on one of their private planes. I didn’t even know if I wanted to go because this plane was a small plane with only eight seats. All I could think about is how bumpy the ride might be and how sick I might get!
But under my mentor’s encouragement (pressure actually) I finally consented to go. To my surprise, the flight was a lot different...
When my children were younger, I was like the mother eagle always nudging them out of their nest…or in other words, their comfort zone.
I now do this same thing with my coaching clients. I encouraged them, even pushing them at times to do things that feel like a risk or challenge to them. I know that as they try things that are hard or uncomfortable, soon those things will become easy.
Hard things, done over and over again, become easy. And as they become easy, then the confidence to do harder things grows.
So we all want to expand our comfort zones right? We all want the ability to act and reach out to people and opportunities when they come our way. But sometimes we just don’t have the confidence to do that.
Know you have the power to do hard things. You are capable of far more than you give yourself credit for. The more you risk and step out of your comfort zone, the more you will see yourself capable...
