Resilience – The ability to be happy and successful again after something difficult or bad has happened.
When you have the mental, physical, and spiritual fortitude required to overcome challenges, adapt to unforeseen circumstances, and rise back to your feet every time life pushes you to your knees, nothing will stand in the way of your dreams!
It’s all in your head!
The level of success you’re able to achieve in life.
The amount of joy you experience on a day-to-day basis.
The ease or difficulty with which you overcome obstacles and challenges.
The sense of purpose and fulfilment you enjoy in everything you do.
All of these things are entirely in your head!
That’s because your mindset determines the quality of your thoughts – and your thoughts create your reality.
YOU get to decide how you’re going to show up in the world.
You get to decide how you respond to the events that happen in your life.
You get to decide how big your dreams will be – as well as the actions you will take to achieve those dreams.
The most important thing for you to remember is this: you are not powerless.
You have the capacity to achieve any goal you can imagine!
All you have to do is cultivate the positive mindset, resilience, and unwavering commitment to make it happen.
Do you know what I’ve been thinking a lot about these past few days?
The power of accountability.
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that accountability plays a HUGE role in my personal and professional success methodology.
When we hold ourselves accountable for our actions, our productivity soars and we end up achieving our goals faster and more easily.
That’s because accountability forces us to be transparent.
It requires us to critically evaluate our actions and their outcomes – so we can use that information to improve our performance and get better results in the future.
This is incredibly powerful stuff! (On both the individual AND the societal level, I feel I should point out.)
That’s why this week I’d like to teach you a simple but extremely valuable practice that you can use to hold yourself more accountable and take more powerful action toward creating the life you want.
This simple accountability practice takes 5 minutes a day but can double your productivity and help you make huge progress toward your goals. Check out this video by our CEO Jack Canfield and let me know what you think about having an accountability partner.
With all of the problems and uncertainty in the world, effective communication is more critical now than ever.
So many disagreements and arguments stem from an inability to communicate properly.
If we could just learn to express ourselves more clearly and transparently and really listen to each other with open hearts and minds, just imagine what we could accomplish!
That’s why, this week I encourage you to be more mindful of the way you communicate with others, both online and in the real world. Here’s a video by Jack Canfield who explains five communications skills you could practice.
Remember to practice the five communication skills Jack taught you in the video above.
When you communicate with others, be sure to ask yourself:
… Are you being impeccable with your word?
… Are you taking their words or actions personally?
… Are you making assumptions?
… Are you being a good listener?
… Are they really saying what you think they’re saying? (If you’re not sure, ask them!)
By improving your communication skills, you will make it so much easier for yourself to cultivate the connections, respect, support and affection you need to thrive in your personal and professional life.
If you’re like most people, you may feel like you’ve been in a “holding pattern” for the past few months, with no clear vision for the future. After all, it’s hard to focus on the future when you’re not even sure what the world is going to look like a week from now!
But here’s a little secret for you – You create your future. It’s not something that “just happens” to you… It’s a reality you design with your own thoughts and actions.
So now that 2020 is over, I encourage you pull your focus away from the endless news cycle and turn your attention toward the thing that matters most: your own life and future.
Now is the time to get clear on what you want your life to look like in the months to come.
It’s time to create a fresh vision for your life and start taking the steps you need to take to make that vision a reality.
Because when you spend all your time obsessing about the news and worrying about things you can’t change, you distract yourself from the things you CAN change – and the positive outcomes you can create in your own life and the world around you.
So, this week I encourage you to take some time to focus on yourself and what YOU really want to experience in your life.
It’s the first (and most important) step to making your dreams come true! Join me for my live training sessions starting soon. I want to see you there and work alongside you.
Have you heard of the term, “doom scrolling”? It’s when you scroll mindlessly through the posts on social media to see what negative stories are dominating the day’s news. A lot of us get stuck doing this… especially these days.
But constantly living in a state of high tension and dread isn’t good for you!
That’s why, I challenge you to turn off Facebook and Twitter and spend some time this week focusing on yourself, your needs, and what YOU want to experience in the weeks to come.
To help you do that, today I’d like to share some fun and helpful resources that will help you avoid common success pitfalls, connect with a positive and vibrant community, and get clear on what you would like your life to look like in the months ahead!
