Wanna Stand Apart From the Herd?

So what makes you so different from the rest of the yahoos? GOOD QUESTION. Do you do what every one else does? Do you kinda go along with the school of fish, making sure you dress 'right', have the 'right' job, 'right' house, and so on? And, if so and you have kids, are you teaching your kids to do the same?

If so, then not much sets you apart. Well, boo, huh?

What's that you say, you WANT to set yourself apart but not quite sure how?

Well, here's the secret to doing that, and it is so easy, because everyone else shows you exactly what to do. Everyone else becomes your guide post as to what to do.

My mentor, Dani Johnson, put it simply. She says, 'If you want to stand out in life, if you want to be successful, just watch what everyone else does and do exactly the opposite.'

Well, that's easy enough. When everyone else is in debt up to their eyeballs, working paycheck to paycheck, you do the opposite. You get real and set up a realistic budget, a realistic (and fast) time frame to pay off your debt, set aside a realistic amount of $$ each month, and tithe to an organization that fills you spiritually.

When everyone else is doing the 'stupid' stuff that people do, such as working at a job they hate, you do the opposite. You either look for a job you love, or you create your own business.

When everyone else is blaming, everybody else, you will put the responsibility back on yourself and hold yourself accountable to higher standards than what is accepted.

Growing up, most of us have been trained to follow the crowd through commercials, peer pressure, media and so on. So, it might be a hard BIG habit to break.

Start small. Here's a few ideas to get you started. Get off the computer for a while. Go for a walk. Drink water instead of soda, have a piece of fruit, stop worrying about your looks (you look fine!), be friendly (that terrifies most people), get to know your mailman, get healthy by fueling your body with the good stuff, stop being so afraid of everything, take a risk here and there.

Most of the examples above aren't done by the masses. Be UN-like the masses and chances are you will find wild, crazy, fun success in your life and relationships.

Have fun.

Shake This & Move Forward!

"It is not the road that wears you out, it is the grain of sand in your shoe." ~Arabian Proverb

In life we come across situations or negative thinking that may be affecting our actions or behaviors. It becomes the pebble in our shoe that causes us to change our behavior to fit the pain.
If we aren't careful, we can walk with that 'pebble' in our shoe and allow it to create a ripple affect as we move through that day and life.

Well, my friends, we cannot afford to allow the pebbles we may pick up through life to do that. We just don't have that kind of time.We just don't.

We must stop and handle that pebble. Whether that is getting right with a situation that occurred, with people, with our thinking, or our destructive actions. Whatever it takes, don't continue on with that pebble in your shoe one more mile.

If it's not cared for and handled, just like a real pebble, it can cause sores, fester, and create a life of pain. It will walk with you into everything you do. It will affect your outlook, how you handle yourself, your kids, your co-workers, your spouse, your customers, and so on.

What pebbles can be removed from your shoe? What negative thinking can be removed from your thoughts? What perceptions are there to change in order to see things differently that may create different outcomes? What situations might you be in that can be remedied? What needs to be made right in order for you to move on free of pain and sadness and regret?

Shake the pebble from your shoe. Stop and regroup. Take the time to get yourself back into the right action. Then watch yourself go and grow.

Are You a Slave to This? Find Out How to Get Out of Bondage

This one thing kills marriages, kills individuals, wipes out dreams, and is a leading cause of depression.  I've seen more people go down in flames because of it and has our country in a terrible space.

I'll tell you what, I've been there and it stinks. It's oppressive, debilitating, and can be so overwhelming it feels like it's hard to breathe.

I'm talking about debt. America is the richest country in the world and yet, we have the highest percent of people living paycheck to paycheck, and the majority of their income is going to pay off some form of debt.

People are drowning in debt.  Working to keep up with the Joneses has gotten us in some serious trouble. We have adult sized toys like boats, atvs, motorcycles, and mroe that we can't even afford to use, because we are so broke.

If I could ever give you a piece of advice that could save your marriage, save your sanity, save your long term health, and keep you off the street, it would be to get out of debt as quickly as possible and stay out of it.

Contrary to popular belief, debt is not your friend. It's not what life is about, nor was intended to be.

If you aren't in debt, awesome. If you are, it's time to get you out and stop being a slave to that amount owed to other people.

I'm not saying it's going to be easy. We've become used to getting what we want, when we want it (which is usually now! ). This is going to require you to stop the hemorrhage of spending. But trust me, it feels so good to not owe anyone, and you will actually start making money your slave.

Over a year ago, I posted on my facebook account that I was debt free. So many of my friends and associates posted they were so happy and wished they could do it. I even had several people email and contact me asking me how I did it.

Well, today I'm going to post my secret weapon.

Now, if you scroll through my posts (which I highly recommend you do), you'll see that I rarely post a sales link, because I have to practically be moved to tears before I will recommend something on my blog.

But this program did, and I've seen and met countless others who have gotten out of high debt amounts of $3 Million, a single mom get out from under $400K. I am not kidding. All without getting another job or eating off of top ramen for years.  In fact, I'm inviting friends and family over to go over the program with me so I can help them, too.

This program is so inexpensive (under $100!), and can be used over and over. Good news is, you only need to 'learn' it once, but having it include CDs, DVDs and a workbook, it allows for us to go back to it again and again. We learn from where we are, so while we learn one thing and put those tools to work, we can then go back later and catch something new that we missed the first time since we probably weren't ready for it the first time. All of this can be done at home.

Problem is, everyone wants to be out of debt, but no one wants to do the work. Trust me, it took work to get into debt. So are you ready to work to stop being someone else's slave? Would you prefer to be Visa's slave or would you prefer to have thousands in the bank? Would you prefer to be a slave to one of the big vehicle loan companies, or would prefer to get rid of that car payment and put that money towards a vacation?

This program contains all the tools necessary to get out of debt and make money your slave.

What's most impressive is, even if you aren't in debt, this program is going to give you the tools and the teachings to save more of the money you are already making.

Go to this page and order this program as quickly as possible. This is an investment that you will continue to go back to often.

If you know anyone drowning in debt and barely keeping the lights on, buy this and gift it to them.

When you get this home study program, I want you to contact me so I can congratulate you for having the guts to get out of debt and for caring enough about yourself to do it.

This One Secret Will Bring You Massive Success in Life.

I'm about to show you how to get more clients, customers, sign ups, friends, connections, along with others edifying you.

I'm about to show you and it's super simple. Once I learned this tip, everything changed in my life. I stopped seeing people as customers and saw them as an opportunity to serve them. That opportunity may or may not include my service.

So here it is.

You honor them. You get to know them. You ask them questions, find out about them, what their needs are and how you can fill those needs with your service. If you can't fill their needs, you offer up someone who can. You give a genuine smile,  a true compliment, ask questions and clarifying questions.

We learn about the person, not what the person has to offer us, or what the person can do for us. They come before out product, our opportunity, or what we have to sell.

Become that go-giver we've talked about. Ask for a business card and ask, 'what is your ideal client?', so you know exactly who to be looking for on their behalf. Make it sincere. Don't rush through getting to know the person to get to your bottom line.

When you truly honor people it stops becoming about you and your agenda. Don't interrupt, don't talk over them, don't think about what you are going to say next, and just listen to what they are saying. That is when you are going to find their needs.

Don't ya love it when people ask about you; are genuinely interested in you? Isn't it wonderful to receive a compliment or to learn someone has spoken highly of you? Ya, me too.

You honor people. It's simple. You honor people everywhere, all the time. Not just the people you think you are going to get something from, or the people from church or work, or just when you feel like it. All the time, everywhere.

Honor people, all the time, everywhere.

WHAT are You Thinking?!

Exactly. What are you thinking? No, really. Stop and take a moment and think about what you are thinking about.

Are your thoughts positive? Do they find the good, the silver lining? What are your thoughts about yourself?

Finish this statement for me, will you?

I AM.....  (you can write it down below in the comment section)

What is the emotion behind it? Is it happy, good, sad, angry, frustrated, hurt, enthusiastic?

Was it a positive statement?

From the mouth comes the heart, right? As a man thinketh, so shall he be.

Here's one more for ya.

How you do anything is how you do everything

How you approach something is how you approach everything.

Look at what you thought (which shows your true intention), when you saw the words I AM written above. Did you think, 'oh, JEEZ, not one of these stupid things.' I hate the whole, 'I AM' new agey statement, positive affirmation crap thing.'

New agey, possibly, biblical definitely. Regardless of the origins, what you think about comes about.

WATCH YOUR THOUGHTS AND WORDS. They are more magical, more powerful than you've ever imagined.

What do you think you've created in your life by either your negative thoughts or your positive thoughts? Tell me.

If you want to learn how to change the tape in your head from negative to positive, we'll approach that, so stay tuned!

Your Perspective Is...

"The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity; the optimist sees opportunity in every difficulty." Perspective defines how you see the world, and the decisions you make in response to situations which may arise.
Last post, I told you about how the Universe gets our attention when it comes to changing.  I brought this up because lately, I've been noticing lots or reoccurring messages throughout the day and have been putting a lot of thought into them.

So the other day, the subject of Perspective came up. Several  times, I came across posts, quotes, comments, etc on perspective.

I thought, 'ok, I get it. Does my perspective need a change in an area of my life? All areas? Tell me. Please. Before you drop a brick wall on me.'

So I started paying attention to my perspective on things. I started paying attention to what I think about right when I awaken in the morning; especially the mornings when it's required that I'm up at 5am.

I started thinking about when I'm angry at someone; the thoughts that run through my head. I started paying attention to the energy I give a situation that I don't want any part of.

I took a step back and looked at how I was perceiving all of these events. Was I approaching them with a open heart, a willingness to adapt and change with circumstances? Or was I being rigid and becoming angry that I couldn't change what I wanted changed?

That is the key. The only thing I can change is myself. The personal power that I feel when I realize how my reality can change just by changing my perspective is incredible. It offers up freedom. I can change my perspective and change my thoughts towards situation. Changing my thoughts changes my actions on how I approach my circumstances. And that changes my reality.

Now while I still prefer to sleep in until 7am, when I awaken at 5am to get to they health club and teach a 6am class, I have changed my perspective from 'holy hell, it's still dark out', to 'What an opportunity for me to help others achieve their fitness goals and get them in a great frame of mind before they go out into their day.'

I look at the stinky situation I've come across and instead think, 'How can I learn while IN this process? How can I approach it with new eyes and a positive outlook? I'm grateful for the opportunity'.

A change in your perspective really can change your life in the blink of an eye.

So what is your current perspective on your biggest challenge right now, and how can changing that perspective create a positive environment for everyone involved?
