Webinar – How to get more control over your life!

In this webinar I’ll show you whether or not you’re  taking 100% responsibility for your life. I promise you that when you’ve completed the webinar you’ll be clear about where you need to take more control and take action in those areas. I love coaching people to refrain from blaming and complaining about events that happen in their lives and instead take 100% responsibility for their actions. I bet you wish your kids would do this – well they can? You can use the worksheets and then commit to taking action which will put you back in the driving seat and that’s where you want to be….right?

Decide What You Want

One of the main reasons why most people don’t get what they want is they haven’t decided what they want. This worksheet will help you to decide what you want to do, be, and have. What do you want to accomplish? What do you want to experience? And what possessions do you want to acquire? In the journey from where you are to where you want to be, you must decide where you want to be. In other words, what does success look like to you?

Clarify Why You Are Here

Be clear why you’re here is another core principle for success. Everything else stems from getting in touch with that which we are put on this earth to do, our Life Purpose.

Find Your Purpose

Without purpose as the compass to guide you, your goals and action plans may not ultimately fulfill you. Make a list of the times you have felt fully alive. What are the common elements of these experiences? Can you figure out a way to make a living doing these things?

What do you want?

When you focus on what you want, energy raises, when you focus on what you don’t
want, energy lowers. Many people spend time focusing on what they don’t want, when focus is shifted to what you want, energy rises.
