Why Stress About Meditation?

How Meditation Can Ramp Up Your Wellness and Performance

Meditation is simply a technique to quiet the Monkey Mind chatter of your mind and let go of the past and future. The key is to emphasize the present -- to just "be". This allows your stress alarm system to reset. Think of it like rebooting your computer. Sometimes your computer starts doing weird things and the best solution is to unplug it for a wee bit. As with your computer, the benefits of allowing your system to reset are huge and worth your time investment... and may save your life.

Pain is Gain

How To Turn Pain Into Personal Empowerment

Leading up to that, I had over ten years of chronic neck pain and migraines. I'm sure that, to some extent, the pain I felt before the full disc tear was a combination of muscle tension and pressure from the discs on my spinal cord.

The first time I heard about core beliefs it went completely over my head. "Core" was still strongly affiliated with my pilates practice and was nowhere near the center of my mind (thought) or heart (feelings).

You were born to be abundant. As a baby, you came into this world expecting to have your every want and need taken care of. And yet, somewhere along the way, you were programmed to believe the opposite by your well-meaning parents by the fear-based money beliefs they taught and by what they modeled. This programming created B.S. (belief systems) which has been limiting your capability to achieve your desired wealth by creating blind spots to strategies which would be successful. Use these 5 proven strategies consistently to remove the B.S. and rewrite your operating system to match your new wealth and finance vision.

Have you achieved the financial success you desire? If not, what's stopping you? If you're like most people, you're looking for that elusive strategy to give you the results you want. You may have even taken multiple courses that have promised they have the answer -- that silver bullet -- only to have them fall short over and over. Even the best strategy in the world is not going to work if you have a lot of B.S. (limiting belief systems, that is) creating roadblocks and blind spots to achieving your desired financial results. If you're not exactly where you want to be, here are 5 simple tools to clear any B.S. that may be blocking your desired wealth goals.

3 Types of B.S. Blocking Your Financial Success

Identifying Limiting Belief Systems and How They Create Roadblocks to Success

What operating system are you running in the background of your mind? How is it impacting your financial success? For better or worse, your unconscious programming is running the show and setting limits on what you can achieve.

Not Reaching your Wealth Goals? Quit Focusing on Your B.S.

How your Belief Systems and Mindset Impact your Wealth Abundance

What B.S. do you have surrounding your wealth and finances... or lack of it? If you're not exactly where you want to be, you've likely picked up some B.S. (limiting belief systems, that is) somewhere along the way that is limiting your wealth accumulation without even knowing it.

The 7 Mindset Patterns Sabotaging Your Success

Use Awareness to Flow from Stress to Success (Part 2)

So what's your favorite way to sabotage any efforts to change? For me, procrastination has always been a favorite...Or perhaps playing the victim, like my injuries stop me from exercising and losing weight. I'm not alone in my self-sabotage, although so often it has felt like I am the only one in the whole world who lacks the self-control and motivation to stick with anything. The good news is that you can change your mindset around self-sabotage and failure. By doing so, you'll flow from stress to success.

A.C.E. Your Mindset and Go from Stress to Success

Beat the Self-Sabotage that Keeps You Stuck

A.C.E. stands for attitude-competence-effort. It is necessary to plow through self-deception every time you start anything new. Learning to walk. Learning to talk. Starting to drive. Beginning a new job or relationship. Joining the gym. Losing weight. Frankly, life would be really boring if everything came easily to you. Like playing a video game or watching a great movie, the challenge is what makes it appealing. Use your A.C.E. consciously to turn self-deception into resistance so that you're building mental muscle instead of just being derailed.

Do you ever feel like life is happening to you? You're not alone. Take control of your life now. O.P.A. stands for Outcome-Purpose-Action. It's about proactively setting your desired outcome before every encounter, be it a meeting, an interview, an email, or a major speaking engagement. Your outcome is your desired destination, which you enter into the GPS navigation of your unconscious mind. Then it's important to know WHY you're taking the journey so that then you can take inspired action toward your goals.
