Are You Stuck Somewhere In Your Life?

© jscreationzsMy desire is to inspire you to ‘do what you need to do’, in order to ‘be who you want to be’. If you ever need to stretch yourself, I highly recommend trying something brand new and out of your comfort zone!

You could pick something like running a half marathon. This will help to move you forward and bring up all the beliefs you have hiding about yourself. Some of those beliefs might be, “It’s hard, I don’t like running, I don’t know if I can do this.”

When these beliefs surface realize it’s just a part of you that can never do or be enough that’s getting triggered. When those beliefs get triggered go back to focusing on what matters the most to you. How you do that is by asking yourself a few questions…
What do I want? Be crystal clear about what you want?

Why do I want it? Get really clear about why you want it?

What strategy will I use? Am I clear about the strategy to get my desire?

Am I creating from the future version? As if it is already done. If not, imagine what it will be like having it, being it or doing it.

Do you have the courage to do what needs to be done to create your desire?

Answer those questions and see what comes up for you. When you can answer the questions above you will quickly get back on the right track. Are you stuck? If you can’t answer those questions, ask for help. If you need help, I’m a phone call away. You can schedule a complimentary breakthrough session with me by emailing me at Jolen@lighterWithin.com.

What Does A Hummingbird And Business Have In Common?

ID-10095551  Yesterday afternoon I was at an appreciation party. It was towards the end of the event and as part of closing we all stood in a circle stating what we were grateful for. I just finished saying what I was grateful for when all of a sudden a humming bird flew into the room. The presence of the hummingbird threw everyone off the feeling of gratitude. Now they were worried about getting the hummingbird back outside. Different ideas flew around the room and everyone worked together to try to get the hummingbird back outside, but nothing worked. The humming bird flew back and forth within the compound of the ceiling that was framed by two wood beams. It was a perfect rectangle shape.

As I stood there watching everyone’s reaction to the hummingbird. I knew he flew into the room for a reason. It was a message to do with joy. I watched the hummingbird fly back and forth, and at one point it even flew in circles. All the while, if the hummingbird dropped down a foot and a half, below the wood beams that was keeping him fenced in like a barrier. The hummingbird would see the door, a way out; Freedom.

 I started wondering, as I watched the hummingbird. How many times have we done the same thing in our business? We push forward going in one direction and not getting anywhere. We end up spinning in circles and still not getting anywhere. We are trapped within the barriers of our mind, like the wood beams trapping the hummingbird. If only we changed our perspective one degree we would see the door. We would see new opportunities, but we think things have to be a certain way and if they don’t show up the way we expect then we don’t take the opportunity. It is all about perspective. How are you looking at your business? Are you only doing things one way? Are you working too hard and not playing? The hummingbird reminds us to find joy in what we do. What would be that one degree shift you need to take to shift your business to the next level?

Your Life Is Like A Movie

ID-100120294 (2)Is your life playing the way you want it to? Is your life full of joy, happiness or is it full of struggle and sorrow? Think of your life, like several movies playing all at once.

 

There is the beautiful movie that inspires you. It’s peaceful, though invocating and when the film is over you feel empowered and good about life. Another type of movie is the ordinary, low budget, “B” rated film and then there are the scary movies.

 

There’s the comedy, where the charters are getting into and out of one jam after another, as you laugh at their mistakes they make. Last are the movie filled of tragedies. It is full of heavy heartache and every kind of drama or problem imaginable and you end up crying in these films.

 

What type of movie is your life playing right now? Are you ready to change the film? Which movie do you want to play? Your life, like the movie is chosen by the thoughts that you are thinking and your beliefs.

 

Let’s say you want to change your film and make some changes in your life. What’s stopping you from making these changes? Is it fear of failure, not knowing how, doing it wrong or fear of success? These things keep us from making changes.

 

Life is a series of adventures. If you look at everything, as an experience to help you grow and become a better person. Then the path is easier, as you know you will get through it. Now you are thinking about ways you can do it. You have possibility thinking instead of thinking, I can’t do this.

 

Tell yourself you can do it and be kind to yourself. Look at it, as times of development and improvement. Not hard, challenging times. Don’t give up on yourself and get stuck in the muck.

 

You have what it takes, you can do it! Be patient with yourself. Give yourself time to develop into the great person you were meant to be. What movie do you want to play in your life?

Are You Stuck On A Plateau?

Are You Stuck On A Plateau? Have you ever notice, when you are first learning something new.  It is hard to understand and even harder to do it right the first time, but you keep trying. After a lot practice it gets easier. Then one day, you realize what once was hard, is now ease to do. It has become part of your everyday life. You do not even give it a second thought, until you have to learn something new again and the cycle continues.

After you learn something new have you ever noticed that you hit a plateau? It seems that you can’t go past a certain part. Take weight loss for example; you eat healthily and move your body daily. The weight seems to melt away, and then one day you plateau. No matter what you do your weight stays the same.

Did you know that when you hit a plateau it has a purpose? It gives you time to re-elevate what you have just learned, adjust to what you have just learned, and helps you get used to where you are now. Once that has happened you adjust and you are ready to learn something new again. Next time you feel a little impatient with yourself. Stop and check to see, if you are on a plateau. If so be kind to yourself, as you will be learning something new very soon.
