    EPISODE 1671: You Have Issues In Your Tissues

    Have you been swallowing cement lately? This is a question I've asked countless numbers of patients over the years. Yes, I've palpated backs that felt as though they had been replaced with a chunk of cement. “Issues in your tissues” is what I like to call it. We've all experienced the discomfort of tight muscles. BUT… There's another form of issues in our tissues, and it's like cement in the heart. You may be suffering from it. It's caused by the cement of JUDGMENT. Are you judgmental? You may not think so. I didn't think I was either until I was asked this question... Do you think you know why others do what they do, and judge what you THINK their intentions are? If so, it's judgment. And if it's in your heart long enough it can lead to a hardened heart. Today's the day to STOP DRINKING CEMENT, AND SET YOURSELF (AND OTHERS) FREE. Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.) TODAY'S SACRED S.O.L. STEP Where have you been judging yourself...what area of your life? Who else have you been judging?

    Perhaps you're sipping on WHINE...whining on your "poor me" story or you're sipping on wine, trying to numb your pain. Today I show you what to do about it... I know you're hurting at some level. Where Are You Hurting? In this episode, you're going to learn 4 steps to begin the process of caring for your hurt. We're all heard that hurt people hurt people. And there are a lot of people hurting. Are you one of them? No matter where you're hurting, you must discover the CAUSE of your hurt. 1. Cause. Get to the root cause of your hurt.  Pain is not your problem, but the cause of it is. Then you must... 2. Acknowledge the truth. And remember, if it can't be interpreted at least 2 different ways, it's probably not true. Are you willing to see TRUTH from more than one perspective? If so, then it's time to... 3. Relearn some things. Perhaps UNLEARNING some old things. Relearning new patterns. Beliefs. Behaviors. Then... 4.Engage in being the solution. Stop looking for the solution, and BE the solution. This, my dear, is what you do to C.A.R.E. for yourself...and your HURTS. It's start here. Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.) TODAY'S SACRED S.O.L.

Then write a bold statement of declaration that you're absolutely committed to getting to the bottom of it — to get to the cause of your hurt. To uncover and discover the cause, so you can seek out and become the solution. You can do it, my dear. And remember, you're NOT alone.

    Imagine. What would it look like for you to be the great lover of your life? With 2/3 of all relationships ending in a break-up, it's time for a REDEFINITION. What if your LOVE…LIFE was a way of life, in which you romanced your days and had a lifelong love affair with your life? I'm going to ask that you be OPEN to a new way of defining love…life for yourself and your life. With divorce and break-ups at an all-time high, a REDEFINITION is definitely necessary. Wouldn't you agree? It's been said that 2 out of 3 relationships end with a break-up. That means that there are a lot of people walking around feeling wounded by the typical definition of “love life.” BUT…there's a NEW way. It's your choice. Today's the day for you to own your power, and take command over how you're defining what's happening in your life, and what you're creating in it. Imagine what you could CREATE with your life if you looked at your life as a LOVE…LIFE. Every day you have the choice to: 1. Romance your day. 2. Romance your life. 3. Make love with your life. OR NOT. TODAY'S S.O.L. STORY was another reminder, and defining moment. Redefining. It comes down to how you choose to label or define your day…life.

    EPISODE 1697: What Your Lady Lion Is Missing

    Play Episode Listen Later Jun 30, 2022 13:16

    Fierce and Fear may start off sounding the same…until you feel her roar. The question is, have you lost your roar? Do you feel as though you've lost your fierce? Your strength? Your force? Your power? Do you feel like you've lost your way? No worries…because today I share 4 discoveries that can change everything. Here's how to locate it. Think about this, Lady Lion, perhaps it's because of one of these... 1. Lost - You've lost your way. How do you gain back your ground? How do you identify your “found?” Start with the truth that you FEEL lost. Then locate yourself. Remember what you believe, desire, and trust. 2. Lack - You feel as though you don't have, or you're missing, something. Perhaps it's information, or a relationship? OR…TRUST? You haven't trusted yourself, the process, others…or maybe you haven't even trusted God. There is a trust issue that's led to lack in your life. What it takes to move from lack to abundance is focus and intense faith…in the process…what you believe, desire, and in whom you trust. Do you trust YOURSELF? Hope is belief, desire, and trust. And guess what? Faith is the substance of what you hope for. This will lead you to focus, and have the faith necessary to actually get your FIERCE back. 3. Love. Maybe you haven't yet discovered what you really LOVE. Excuses are oftentimes a symptom of not really being as “into it” as you say you are. You're doing it because you think you “should” be doing it. OR… It's a good idea, a maybe…"woulda, coulda, shoulda." It may sound like a good idea, but it's not YOUR call. It's not YOUR true love. It's not your INSPIRED place — YOUR life's work. If this is true... Then it's NOT for you. Even if it's a great thing. If you're not in love with it…set yourself free! It's time for you to get HONEST with yourself. It's okay for you to NOT be ALL iNTO it. ADMIT IT. QUIT PRETENDING. Allow yourself to see the truth. To know the truth, walk in it, and live out the truth. Because knowledge of the truth sets you free. Why? When you live in truth, you stop carrying around the heaviness of all the “woulda, coulda, shoulda,” and actually get down to business. You step into the freedom that's available — the fierce nature of who you are. 4. Lazy. Yes, you simply may be lazy. You may want it ALL without doing any work. Is this true?  Are you feeling lazy? You must take action. Stop saying you want, you want, you want. Because it will keep you in want. You must tap into your desire. When you do — along with your INSPIRE, and inspired inspiration — you'll tap into a power, and energy to actually get the work done. The do. That is who. Which is YOU, my dear. It's time to reclaim your FIERCE. Look at each of these areas and identify which one (or ones) requires your attention. What's asking for your attention? What are you committed to giving your focus and attention to, and where are you ALL IN to sharing your heart and soul…your undivided attention and care? Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.) TODAY'S SACRED S.O.L. STEP What do you desire to DO right now, but for some reason you've felt weak and uncommitted in following through and getting the results you desire? Write it down. Circle it. Take a look. Which one of these L-Words is YOU? Make a commitment today with laser sharp focus. That Lady Lion isn't missing. That FIERCE is in there. You must be willing to express the creative nature and power that is uniquely you, my dear!

And what does it mean to be “need based?” What do YOU need? If you only give yourself what you need, you will keep yourself in a state of need.

    How do I love myself? This is a question I get asked A LOT… Today you're going to learn how to begin the process of LOVING YOU. Consciously. Compassionately. Consistently. Are you ready to get an A+ in LOVE? LOVE. Loving yourself. It seems like it would be so natural, right? It was at one time, but like many natural, healthy things…life has a way of teaching us the opposite. These 6 Keys will help open up the door of your heart, and release the chemistry of your INNATE SELF LOVE. Think of it as showing love THROUGH yourself. Will it be pure? Unapologetic? Unashamed? Naked? Unafraid? Unconditional? Here's how it can be... Key #1- Acknowledge YOU and the love you desire. Key #2 - Ask YOU for the love you desire. Key #3 - Give love to yourself. Key #4 - Act on it. Act with it. Take massive loving action. Key #5 - Accept love from yourself. Allow yourself to receive it (receive YOU), my dear! Key #6 - Abundance. Receive abundantly and act abundantly in love with it. WHAT CHANGE DO YOU DESIRE? Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.) TODAY'S SACRED S.O.L. STEP: Take an inventory of where you're accepting or pursuing anything that's not what you desire. Write down anything that you're accepting in your life…but it's NOT what you desire. Write down anything that you're pursuing in your life (possibly unconsciously) that's NOT what you desire. Commit today to LET IT GO, and commit to passionately pursuing what you DO DESIRE. Passionately pursue YOU. Love yourself for a change… And create what happens! I can't wait to hear about what happens next.

    STOP TRYING TO FIX YOURSELF. YOU'RE NOT BROKEN. Here's how... What's the difference between counseling and coaching? This was the question I was asked. This is my answer... Counseling focuses on FIXING. Coaching focuses on FINDING. Counseling focuses on the PAST. Coaching focuses on the PRESENT, while creating the future you desire to love and live. At least, this is what I do with my clients in Healing Life Coaching. You may FEEL broken, but you're NOT. You (and your life) may not be working, but you can. My desire for you is to feel (and be) fully functional, aware, and thriving. NOT just ONE step up from BROKEN. HOW? 1. Find yourself. Stop trying to fix yourself. 2. Inspire yourself. It's time to begin Inspiring yourself in the healing process, Inspiring yourself in the process of loving your life and life's work well. 3. Expose the TRUTH. Period. Stop waiting for your life to change to love it. Love your life to change. Stop waiting for YOU to change to LOVE YOURSELF. Love you to change. Love your life to healing. LOVE YOURSELF FOR A CHANGE! (More about this in tomorrow's podcast...) Stop trying to be improve yourself, be better, or be best... FIND AND EXPRESS YOURSELF. In order to Be Excellent Starting Today you must Be Expressed Starting Today. Expressing who you are. In order for you to do this, you must know. And… In order to know, you must EXPRESS. Got it?

    EPISODE 1685: How To Trust Others…

    Play Episode Listen Later Jun 18, 2022 10:20

    A Private Investigator, cheating husbands, and several valuable lessons learned… Is it possible to trust again after your trust is betrayed? The answer is yes…and these 3 keys will help... A question I'm often asked is, “If I've been betrayed, how can I ever trust anyone again?” Going through more than one divorce, and being cheated on by two husbands, I know what it feels like… I know the painful feeling of betrayed trust. If you feel as though you're having a hard time trusting again, start with this… 1. Pay attention to what you feel. AND FACE IT. And remember, forgiveness doesn't automatically equal trust. 2. Trust yourself. Until you trust yourself, you'll never be able to fully trust another. If you haven't always been trustworthy to yourself, start by FORGIVING YOURSELF today. Then begin to build the trust that you desire by practicing #1. Trust is not only horizontal, it's vertical. It can be both created and destroyed. Truth builds up. The opposite of truth tears down. 3. You're not the problem for acknowledging the problem. Do not be afraid to acknowledge how you feel, and speak up about it. Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.) TODAY'S SACRED S.O.L. STEP: Write yourself a Letter Of Trust. Begin to build upon this trust with Love And Respect. If forgiving yourself is necessary, include this in your letter as well.

    Today's episode is a little rant/sermon about the TRUTH about truth. Although truth may not be popular, knowledge of it WILL set you free. First, are you believing something that ISN'T true? We all have a S.O.L. STORY (although it may not be so sacred), of someone who's wronged us, told us a lie, wasn't honest or truthful. Disappointing, right? It can be devastating to a relationship. But what if that relationship is between your own heart and soul? Are you telling yourself, and believing, the truth? I'm sold out on truth (popular or not) for the following reason... It's the only thing that I've been able to stand on in the most devastating times, greatest loss, hardest, and most painful experiences. Truth and the knowledge of it have allowed me to live, stand, grow, and heal in freedom. I desire this for everyone I know and love, including you. My desire is that you know the truth. That you know what you believe, and why you believe it. To be able to ask questions, expose the truth and the lies. In all of my years as a Chiropractor, Healing Life Coach, and working with people, I've found that the ones who get the greatest breakthroughs are the ones that are willing to know the truth, and make decisions based on that truth. If not, it's like standing on a slippery rock, and trying not to fall. Even though truth isn't popular. It's the only thing that'll allow you to stand and live in freedom. When you have truth you can put your trust in something that's solid. In my SIX SACRED S.O.L. DATE SECRETS or AGREEMENTS, I've shared this TRUTH about truth… If it can't be interpreted at least two different ways, it's probably not true. How you see it matters. However, no matter how you look at a mountain, it's still a mountain. If your truth isn't allowing you to get what you desire, live the life you desire, and create the life you long for…then it's time to look at that “mountain” in a different way. Do you see possibility? Where there's truth, there's possibility. It gives you the opportunity to start making decisions. What are you going to choose? The truth or not? A lie will always disempower you. It's a one-way ticket to disaster. Are you willing to start looking at all the beliefs you have in your life, and asking what's true for you? Expand. Grow. Live. In freedom. Find the TRUTH, and you'll become unstoppable. Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.) TODAY'S SACRED S.O.L. STEP: Be honest. Is there any area of your life that you feel as though you're not empowered? Is there a story in your mind and heart that says you're a victim, you can't, or “POOR ME”? Expose it. Write it down. Write down the truth about what you feel. Then ask yourself if it's true, and if there's another way to see it. Even though truth isn't popular, it IS the true path to freedom.

    This ONE QUESTION has the power to UNLOCK your life, and give you infinite FREEDOM… What would you do if there was NO ONE to make responsible for you and your situation, but YOU? AND…YOU BELIEVED YOU HAD THE POWER TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.   What would YOU do?   “W.W.Y.D.”   YOU MUST OWN IT.   This is where YOU come in…YOU must do/not do it for YOURSELF.   However, you don't have to do it all by yourself.   You can invite others into your life to help you BE THE SOLUTION.   To create what you desire.   What would that look like for you?   Here's HOW.   1. Be Honest with yourself about YOU, and your HOPE, home, health, happiness.   Basically, how HARMONIOUS is your life?   What is working?   What's not working?   Get clear.   Boldly, and confidently declare your desires.   Identify your options…your choices.   Make decisions.   2. OWN IT, and be OPEN to outcome, but not attached to it.   Take FULL responsibility, and ENGAGE with it.   When you OWN, you give yourself PERMISSION.   Per the mission.   Knowing our desires, and taking ACTION are more important than MAKING THEM HAPPEN.   Why?   Because when you KNOW, YOU GO. YOU GROW.   3. WORK.   EXPRESS YOUR CREATIVE ENERGY.   No longer expressing DESTRUCTIVE energy.   OWN YOUR ENERGY.   EXPRESS IT.   SEE YOURSELF AS YOU SEE YOURSELF.   Do you see yourself?   Or have you stopped seeing yourself because you're so busy looking at everyone and/or everything that have become the reason you do NOTHING to create what you say you desire to create.   How do you see yourself?   What would it take for you to begin expressing yourself TODAY?   This is HOW…   Honesty. Ownership. Work.   It's not about “THEM.”   Think WE…not HE, SHE, THEY, OR THEM.   “When WE work, our DREAMS WORK.” Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E.

    Imagine if your emotions were the keys that unlocked your passion and progress. Today I'll show you how to use your T.E.A.R.S. and also conquer your fears.... Today I share a powerful strategy for processing emotions that'll unlock your passion and motion. Processing or paralyzing? Progressing or paralyzing? Have you ever apologized for being emotional? Why do we do that? Have you ever been told that you're emotional? We, as women, have been labeled as emotional beings…like it's a bad thing. Whether it's sadness, madness, or happiness, they can all cause tears. So why not allow your T.E.A.R.S. to serve you and unlock your passion? I discovered this technique many years ago, while experiencing intense lower back pain. It worked miraculously, and allowed me to heal.  This strategy has helped me, and my clients, to not only process emotions, but to make huge forward progress in healing and living our lives well. You can too. T- Talk with it. E- Experience it. A- Acknowledge + Appreciate it. R- Release it. S- Show up + SIP…on your life. TODAY'S SACRED S.O.L. STEP: Whatever emotion you're feeling today — especially if it's intense — allow yourself to walk through the process of T.E.A.R.S. Talk with it. Experience it. Acknowledge and Appreciate it.

    DISCLAIMER/I APOLOGIZE: After recording today's episode, I noticed a clicking sound coming through my microphone . I'm not sure why this happened, but I WILL get it figured out! For today, please forgive the distraction of the occasional clicks. (THANK YOU!) Perhaps it's there to help you practice your ability to FOCUS. Your focus is powerful, as long as you remember what to focus on. I'll show you how to direct your focus today and renew your mind... With everything vying for your attention, how do you stay focused on what matters most to YOU? In today's episode I'll show you a powerful, yet simple, strategy to remember... So why do we forget to remember? I believe it's because we don't have enough reminders. A reminder renews the mind…and a renewed mind is a transformed life. Remember when we've talked about the definition of SOUL in the past? It's our mind, will, and emotions. And you know how we define S.O.L., right?  It's Sipping On Life, of course. This strategy will help you remember to focus on your heart and SOUL, while sipping on your life.  Got it? Here Are 3 Reminders For SIPPING ON LIFE Every Day… 1. S: Start small and finish big. Simple is the most profound way to focus. Commit to doing a small thing consistently. EVERY DAY. Small things every day become BIG things and BIG days. What is this for you? What could it be for you? 2. O: Open your day with a big step for you. Create a morning SACRED SELF TIME with a RENEWAL RITUAL. Listen. Share. Set an intention for your day. Commit to it by staying OPEN. ALL DAY. 3. L: Love the little things. Look for everything you LOVE. Document. Take pictures. Review at the end of your day. Give thanks...and thanks will give YOU more to be thankful for. Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.) TODAY'S SACRED S.O.L. STEP: 1. Write out the letters: S.O.L.  2. Write down what comes to mind for YOU with each of these three... Start small. Commit to the smallest, yet most consistent step you can take on a daily basis. Open your day. How will you OPEN your day with SACRED SELF time? Love. Begin to list the things you love most in your life. Look for them. Look for new ones.

    EPISODE 1675: You Become What You Consistently Do

    If you're struggling with being, and staying consistent, then the only way to BECOME IT is to BE IT. These steps will help you… Today I show you a way to identify and clarify your consistencies, so you can become consistent at being YOU, and create the desires of your heart. How consistent are YOU at being YOU? Is there something in your life that you'd like to change? What would you like to BECOME today? It's about being. It's about coming into being. How we do this is by consistently being who we are, and becoming who we desire to become. The key word here is “CONSISTENTLY.” How consistent are you with anything in your life? We've talked about this in previous podcasts… If you ever catch yourself saying, “I know I should be, but…” then perhaps your SHOULD is getting in the way. Whoever said so? And most importantly, if you're doing this, HOW'S THAT WORKING FOR YOU? How consistent are you with doing what you desire to do? What are you waiting for? If you desire to do it, then do it. And if for some reason you believe you can't, then let's identify what's standing in your way. Besides, of course, your belief that says, “I can't.” Let's focus on creating SOLUTIONS. What would you be willing to commit to doing every day starting now? But first, do this: Step One: Take an inventory of what you're consistently doing right now. Look at it. Are you progressing?  Ask yourself, “Am I becoming what I desire to become by doing this?” As well as, “Am I being who I really am by doing this?” Step Two: Is it WORKING for you? If not, then it's time for a new commitment…new action step…new declaration of consistency. Be consistent with what you desire, because whatever you do consistently, you'll become. What do you desire to become? Please take time to ask yourself (and answer) these questions today. Remember, your life is the answer to the questions you're asking. What questions are you asking? Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.) TODAY'S SACRED S.O.L. STEP: What do YOU desire to BECOME? CONSISTENTLY.

    Today's episode is a great reminder of living life on purpose, versus by accident...it's time to get YOUR life WORKING. The most unexpected moments can be our greatest teachers, so can this ONE question. Today's episode is a valuable — short and sweet — reminder of what truly matters in life. Oftentimes we get so caught up in the things that don't necessarily matter in our lives. We waste so much precious life TIME focusing on things that really don't serve us, or the greater good. In a minute — a moment — life can change forever. We all need moments of truth that allow us to get back to what matters most. It's here where we'll remember our true purpose, and what matters most. Your LIFE matters. Your HEALTH matters. Your TIME matters. LOVE MATTERS. YOU MATTER. Don't waste a moment on what doesn't matter or ISN'T working. Whatever you're going through today, you must ask yourself the question, “How's this working for me?” Then YOU can decide what you're going to do about it. What matters MOST to you? You're HERE right now. Make choices that are rooted and grounded in truth. In what matters most. Today. Don't wait. It's time to get your life working! If “it's” not working for you, change it.

    Today I reveal the 4 Forms of Opinion Ownership and a new form of Entrepreneurialism... Do you think about what others are thinking about you? You're about to learn some TRUTHS that'll set you FREE...while adding incredible value to your life, and the lives of others. It's an ongoing topic of discussion in my S.O.L. DATE SISTERHOOD, as well as with my coaching clients, and all the coaching I do. It's the topic of worrying about what others think about YOU. You're so concerned about what “THEY” are thinking about YOU…but is it possible that YOU'RE actually thinking that about YOURSELF (at some level?) Yes, it's true! OWN IT, my dear! Stop trying to own everyone else's opinions about you. Instead, OWN YOURS. What would that look like for you? What would your life look like for you to own your own opinion? The 4 Levels of OPINION OWNERSHIP Are… 1. No ownership. It's like you're homeless…and you feel helpless. You don't own your opinion, nor do you own your responsibility. There's no work. And I've got news for you…It doesn't work! Everyone's opinion of YOU is important. Or so it seems. 2. Renting. Think of it as leasing…or is it “pLEASING”… People pleasing. That's right, you're a genuine (although inauthentic) People Pleaser. You try to please everyone, while not really pleasing anyone…especially yourself. You also try to own everyone else's opinion of YOU. You blame them for thinking about you in the way that they do, when honestly…YOU are the one who BELIEVES these things about you (at some level.) OWN IT, MY DEAR! 3. Own/Occupy.  When you own your own business…and you're not in others' business. You finally own the fact that others' opinions of you are none of your business, and you don't make it your business. You can think of this as a new form of “entrepreneurialism.” 4. Own/Landlord. YOU'RE PAID FOR YOUR OPINION. You own your opinion of YOU. You don't blame others' opinions of you on them. You own your OWN opinions of YOU. Others' opinions of you are not your business. Your opinion of you is your business. And now, others actually ask (or pay) for your opinion. You can think of this as the ultimate form of ENTREPRENEURIALISM.  You care more about people, and what they care about, then caring about their opinion of YOU. You help them to believe in themselves by sharing the TRUTH with them. Imagine what this would look and feel like in your life… Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.) TODAY'S SACRED S.O.L. STEP: Where right now in your life are you worrying about what others are thinking, or saying, about you?

If not, let it and YOU go… Set yourself free today, my dear.

Today I give you a 3-Step Evaluation process to assess, revive, restore, resuscitate, and resurrect your dreams. If you've ever felt like your dreams have died, fizzled, been forgotten, or you no longer believe it's possible for you to live the life of your dreams…I've got great news for you! There's a way to bring your dreams back to life. How? No different than doing C.P.R. on the human body. When I learned how to do C.P.R. I was told to assess the A.B.C.s... A: Airway  B: Breath C: Circulation  It's time to assess your dream's A.B.C.s...and begin some C.P.R. Where have your dreams gone unconcsious? What's blocking you from your dreams? What dream of yours feels as though it's died? 1. Remove the interference. Open the airway. Open up. Are you able to receive the life you've been given? Is the "airway" to your dreams blocked? Becoming CONSCIOUS will help remove the interference, and open up life to your dreams. 2. Take in your inspiration. BREATHE by remembering what inspires you. Breathe in the breath of your life by fully acknowledging and receiving your PURPOSE. 3. Allow your heart to beat life into your dreams.  Are you giving your heart permission to lead you and circulate your purpose? For every 15 inspirations, there must be at least two heart beats. (CORRECTION: It's 15 heart beats and 2 breaths...or perhaps 30:2...yes, it's time for a C.P.R. refresher course!)  It's the heart that pumps life into what inspires you. Even though your dreams may look differently than you once thought they did, they can still be RECYCLED and RECOGNIZED.

    You're not IN your way, you ARE the way! Learn how to stop battling yourself, and begin working WITH yourself today... Today I teach you 3 things you can do to begin winning with — and within — yourself. If you're battling with yourself, you'll always end up on the losing end. There are no two ways about it. You're either ON your team or you're NOT. If you're NOT, then you're against yourself…and you're fighting a losing battle. No one wins, especially YOU. Stop fighting. Stop battling yourself. Today's the day you can stop this, and WIN. You may have heard of the old saying of, “get out of your own way.” I don't agree with this. This whole idea that you need to be fixed, you're broken, you're missing something, or need someone to complete you, you need to be better, work more, work harder, or whatever it is that you're telling yourself...etc....is simply NOT the whole truth. It's not about being better or best. It's about Being Excellent Starting Today. You be. You start. You keep going. Today. Make a decision. Then take action. Decisions do. Commitment continues. Stop trying to fix yourself. Stop trying to be someone or something else. Stop trying. Stop working against yourself, and work WITH yourself. It's not about YOU being in the way. It's about you BEING the way. That's right, YOU are the way. It's not that you need to get out of your way. Instead, you must allow yourself to become the way. Isn't that freeing?  You don't need more SELF-HELP. You don't need to help yourself. Stop working against yourself. Stop battling yourself. Stop TRYING to help yourself, and simply be yourself. Care for yourself. When you care for yourself, you won't care about all these other things that DON'T MATTER. YOU matter. What must you do in order to stop battling yourself? Here are 3 things you can begin doing today... 1. Forgive yourself. For the past. For the present. For the future. This may sound easier said than done. However, it's easier done than said. It's absolutely easier done than NOT DONE. Face it. YOU are the ONLY person that's been with you from the beginning, and must be with you until the end. So you might as well get along. Release yourself to be who you are.  Be the way. Meet yourself where you are today. Letting go of the YOU that you were yesterday, and embracing who you are today, by forgiving yourself. Recognize yourself today, and release yourself into becoming who you are today and tomorrow. 2. Make a decision (and commitment) to be your best friend. No matter what. Love yourself. Pursue YOU. REMIND yourself AND ROMANCE yourself. Womance yourself as any great girlfriend — Bestie — would do. Be your BEST GIRLFRIEND. Romance your own life. 3. Free your inner Warrior Princess and unleash your creative power by allowing your dreams and desires to express themselves. Allow HER to express herself. REMEMBER who you are AND REMIND yourself by listening to your heart's desire, your creative nature, your Warrior Princess within you. She's your incredible, passionate, powerful little girl that's showing up as the most divine, brilliant being — the woman that you are today.

    Today I uncover the real problems behind your commitments, or lack thereof. First of all, it's not a commitment issue. It's a decision issue. You have more choices and options than you think you do. The problem is, you think you don't. But… You do. The other problem is, even though you do have choices, you're not exercising your power to choose. THAT'S RIGHT. YOU HAVE POWER. Although, the only way to access it is by making a decision. Yes, there's a decision that must be made. Without decisions, there are no commitments...and there is no power.

    EPISODE 1666: Are You Using “Perfect” As An Excuse? (The Deception Of Perfection)

    Play Episode Listen Later May 24, 2022 9:30

    If you're like most humans, you may have bought into the deception of perfection. Today I'll help you identify where you are, and how to get out of the prison of perfection. Have you ever found yourself saying, “Hey, I'm not perfect. I'm only human?” OR… You've sacrificed progress for the illusion of perfection? First of all, what's perfect got to do with it, anyway? Secondly, why are you using "perfect" as your desired destination, which becomes an excuse? What does “perfect” mean to you? Seriously, how do you define "perfect?" In the traditional way that most people think of it, perfection is really an illusion. Not only is it an illusion, but it's become a prison for a lot of people. So how do you get out? Start by redefining PERFECT. To me, the true definition of perfect is: TRUTH. Good, bad, ugly…if it's the TRUTH, it's PERFECT. Why? Because when you know the truth, it'll set you free. The so-called illusion of perfection takes many prisoners. Don't be fooled. Don't be one of them. Not sure if you're using “perfect” as an excuse? If you're in either of these two camps, then you're definitely using it as an excuse. (As most of us humans do at times.) A: Oftentimes you say things like, “I'm human. I'm not perfect.” You're using it as a reason to NOT grow or learn. You're using it to give yourself an “excuse” to stay the same. Quite simply, it's a cop out. B: You don't do certain things because you fear that you won't do it perfectly. You hold back. You hide. You sacrifice progress because of your idea of perfection. When you do this, you stay stuck where you are. Is it possible that you're striving for something that you haven't even clearly identified? Do you even know what “perfect” is? Again, I'd ask you to take a look at how you define “PERFECT.” It's time to bust out of the DECEPTION + PRISON OF PERFECTION, and trade it for the FREEDOM OF TRUTH. Stop blaming everything on perfect. Either NOT being perfect or trying to be perfect. It's time to start the process of progress and prosperity. Let go of the IDEA of PERFECTION. Stop using perfect as an excuse. Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.) TODAY'S SACRED S.O.L. STEP: 1. How do YOU define PERFECT? Perhaps it's time to redefine it. 2. Are you holding back in any area of your life because you're trying to do IT perfectly or not learning, growing, or advancing because you're using "perfect" as an excuse to stay where you are? Write that down, and make a commitment today to stop using PERFECT as an excuse. Thank you for being here, and allowing me to Sip On Life with you.

    Today I ask a series of questions to help you uncover and discover a new way of looking at what you THINK you KNOW. It starts with, "What are you learning now?" The first of many questions that we must ask ourselves. No matter what you know today, there's still more to learn. IMAGINE THE POSSIBILITIES… So often we experience something new and we label it. We create a story about it…and around it. But is it the truth? Perhaps it's simply an opportunity to grow and learn something new. What are you learning NOW? What are you willing to be open to see? To experience? What GROWTH are you willing to experience? So many things we define as hard, impossible, broken are NOT necessarily the TRUTH. Is what you know…what you're learning serving you well? Is it allowing you to live in freedom? Knowledge of the truth sets us free. As we prepare for the NEW, it's vital that we start looking for NEW ways to… Grow. Expand. See. Be. Become.

    Today I show you a proven, effective SECRET for increasing your focus and experiencing a "Vacation Day" as often as you desire. Vacation... It's not a destination, but a decision. One that's based on a lifestyle that YOU choose. What makes a "vacation" a vacation? 1. We choose it. We exercise our power of choice, which allows us to get razor sharp with our focus, efficiency, and effectiveness. We can experience a “vacation day” even while we're doing our day-to-day life. Why? Because we're CHOOSING it. It isn't a “have to,” but instead it's a “get to.” 2. We set the DATE. Then we declare it a “vacation day.” Once it's scheduled, we plan and prepare for it.  Next we experience it. We can do this on any given day. A conscious shift in our mindset changes everything. Your DATE becomes the target for creating what you desire. Efficiently and effectively. 3. We're good to ourselves. We allow ourselves to receive the blessing of relaxation, refreshing, and restoration. This is something you can do on any given day. It's up to you to decide. You don't have to go somewhere to be in this mindset, or be good to yourself. You don't need to leave your daily life to have this kind of refreshing, restoration, and relaxation. You can choose to have a “vacation lifestyle.” This is a razor focused way of living, and creating the life you choose to live. Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.) TODAY'S SACRED S.O.L. STEP Declare a day that you're going to make your “VACATION DAY.” Schedule it. Start talking about it. Call it your “vacation day.” Make plans for it. Experience your “vacation day” doing your regular day-to-day ordinary life in an EXTRAORDINARY way. Begin to create a vacation-style life.

    Today's episode will help you get out from behind the toilet bowl (or the crap) in your life. If you've ever had an accident or made a mistake, this is how to turn your mess into a message. My dear, sweet, little rescue Yorkie, Stela, inspired this S.O.L. Story. After peeing on my bed, we had a very intense conversation. She felt so badly about what she had done that she couldn't even look at me. Next thing you know, I find her hiding behind the toilet bowl. I went into the bathroom and we had another discussion. This is what I said to her… “What are you doing behind that toilet? You made a mistake. You're bigger than this. You know the truth about who you are. Don't allow this to define you.” “C'mon, get out from behind that toilet.” Oftentimes this is how we are as humans. If you've ever had an accident or done something out of your character for you, you know how this feels. We all have moments when things happen. We make decisions that perhaps weren't the best choice. BUT… Are you going to allow it to define you? Are you going to hide or stay down? Are you going to hide behind your crap? If this is you…my dear, you're bigger than this! Get out from behind the toilet bowl. Stand up. Make a decision. Let it go. It's behind you now. Remember, you are NOT the mess!

    Today I share a S.O.L. Story that'll take you beyond a survival mentality, and into one of a SURVIVOR. It reminds all of us how powerful the gift of life truly is, and how to live like we're SURVIVING. Your life matters and what you do today matters. How do we THRIVE like we're SURVIVING? 1. Value survival as a gift. 2. Acknowledge the gift of survival…and LIFE. 3. Appreciate your survival today. If you aren't thriving in your day, perhaps it's because you haven't consciously acknowledged the gift of survival, life, and being alive. You have life flowing through you. As long as life is flowing through you, there's always hope for healing. The gift of SURVIVING another day makes this possible. Then you can engage in the power of THRIVING. Life is full of losses, but it's also full of LIFE. No one gets out of here alive. Bad things happen to GOOD (GREAT) people. We don't know what will happen next. Even those things that we say “shouldn't” happen or be in the story line of our lives — they can happen. Life and death happen. Are you willing to fully embrace and engage your ability to thrive by acknowledging, embracing, and appreciating your ability to SURVIVE another moment to...SIP ON LIFE?

    In today's episode, I discuss the best way to position yourself to release anything that's keeping you heavy, and weighing you down. It'll also position you to change and create with ease. We carry so much “excess”, heaviness, and stuff in our lives. I'll never forget the day I made the conscious decision to let go, and EDIT my life. It was one of the biggest and best decisions of my life. Wisdom is choosing how we spend our time. Are you spending a lot of time managing your stuff and things? If so, maybe it's time to lighten your load. Today I'm talking more about an internal EDIT. We all have “baggage” that we carry with us from the past, and into our present…while trying to create a different future. However, this doesn't always work so well. Instead, editing out what no longer serves us works very well. The process of EDITING my life involved both internal and external EDITS…to truly follow my heart and create my desires. In your life right now, what are you willing to release and let go of? It's time to E.D.I.T. for change. Remember that change is GROWTH. HOW? Evolve beyond excess. Decide to cut it out. Intention guides action. Think for yourself. Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.) TODAY'S SACRED S.O.L.

    EPISODE 1658: 3 Secrets To Change

    Today I share what works when it comes to creating change... This episode is a continuation of yesterday's EPISODE 1657: Why I Don't Set Goals. It's a more detailed explanation of the 3 Secrets of why I don't set goals, and what works when it comes to creating change. For me it began with wanting something different and new, while being tired (and done) with trying to use traditional goal-setting methods to create what I desired. Then one day I heard the words, conscious, grateful, and fearless in my heart. That day I made the decision to make these 3 words my FOCUS for the entire year. In that year I created massive results, incredible change, and experienced the desires of my life becoming my reality. Since that day I haven't stopped being conscious, grateful, and fearless. I had discovered a new way to create change after making these discoveries. 1. Goal-setting doesn't work. If you desire incredible change, it's time to get conscious about what you desire to change, and the commitments you're making to it. Don't set GOALS. Make COMMITMENTS. 2. Change is natural, healthy, and easy. Does that sound crazy? Seriously, change isn't hard. Perhaps it's because you're resisting change, or attempting to set goals time and time again, that's making it seem hard. Chasing a carrot you never seem to catch, while running from a stick that's chasing you…now that's HARD. Running from your desires and dreams…that's even harder! Instead, get your desires and dreams out in front of you. Begin to create the change you desire. When you get on board with change, it becomes easy. Now I didn't say, it's without work. However, work is creative energy. When you put your creative energy toward what you're committed to and you're “ALL IN”, and in an inspired, creative mode…it's easy! You're not the same person you once were. You're changing every day. You're either growing up or growing down. You're either creating constructively or deconstructing. You get to decide. What are you going to put your energy on? The reality is, we were designed to grow, and change. That's why we're not still pooping in our pants, with someone else changing our diapers. Thank God. We've learned. We've grown. We started walking. We started talking. Change is natural. Resisting change is unnatural.  Change is growth. I believe people resist it because they had a bad experience with “goal-setting” in the past. It's about creating, building, fully experiencing, and growth. Natural. Healthy. Easy. 3. Disagreement causes distraction. A lot of times when it comes to creating the desires of our hearts, we say we don't have TIME for it. We put it on the back burner of our lives. The more you say this, the less time you'll have for it. When is the good day? When is the right time for you to go all in with your life? To fully commit and create the changes you say you desire? You say there's no time or too many distractions… But if you get in AGREEMENT with the desires of your heart and fully commit to creating change the distractions go away because you're no longer focused on them. You're all in or you're not. One sip at a time. One step at a time…fully AGREEING with the desires of your heart. These 3 Secrets can help set you free. Give up the goal-setting. Start committing to what you desire. Stop resisting change, and saying it's hard. Get on board and change on your terms. Get in agreement with yourself, and your desires.

If you've ever felt “beat up” by traditional goal-setting, today's the day to set yourself free and get results WITHOUT setting goals. Life's about living the desires of your heart, and seeing your dreams become your reality. Not GOAL-SETTING. Are you living your dreams? Do you know what you desire?

It's about becoming what you desire to be and become. This creates inspired creativity. And creates RESULTS. Stop beating yourself up with a strategy that doesn't work.
