For most people, holding down a job and earning a paycheck is their main strategy for achieving financial security. This alone will not get you where you want to go. Isn’t it time for you to create the lifestyle you want and deserve? What actions are you taking to help you grow your wealth? Do you have a system in place to move you closer to your goals? The answers may not be clear. However, in order to live the lifestyle, you’ve dreamed about, you will need to have a plan to turn your income into wealth. The type of wealth that keeps building if you find yourself out of a job or physically unable to work. The type of wealth is what turns dreams into reality.

Wouldn’t it be great if you were able to stop beating yourself up over those past experiences that have held you back from achieving your financial goals or kept you from doing more of what you love to do each day? Guilt and regret are powerful emotions which can hamper your ability to make the powerful decisions needed in order to create the life you’ve dreamed of.

. Changes with less stress and strain because they are made over time and do not have to happen all at once.

 Whether you’re under 20, in your mid 40’s, or over 65, it’s possible to make life changes for the better that involve money. You ideally can start today with small adjustments that will make a big difference for your future. Changes so you will ultimately enjoy getting out of bed so you can do what you love to do and then finish the day sleeping peacefully instead of worried about your finances.

How can you make this happen? Well, I’m glad you asked…

The first step is to decide NOW (not tomorrow, next week, or next year) your financial security is a priority.  The next step is changing your mindset from seeing yourself only working for your money and shifting to the understanding it’s important now your money will need to work for you. How? This will be done by investing in the stock market. 

It may have crossed your mind and you now wonder if you’d be taking a chance with your hard earned money by investing in the stock market. Keep in mind that although stocks are riskier than keeping money in a savings account or Certificate of Deposit (CD’s) with a fixed yield, they have historically had higher returns that beat inflation helping you grow your wealth. That’s great news for you because it opens the door of opportunity for you to generate an additional source of income. Again, your money will be working for you.

It’s also important to note that I’m not suggesting you should jump all in. The idea is to start slow and small. I want you to be successful with your finances but I also want you to understand this shift in thinking requires you to take steps that may take you out of your comfort zone. This is why it’s important to make small adjustments because as you grow with your knowledge and experience you will find those decisions will ultimately pay off with feelings of ease and satisfaction.

One of the best strategies I’ve seen through my years of experience is to begin your financial plan with long and short term goal oriented action steps that are fun, simple, and practical for you. Simply put, these goals fit you and your life. You are not at a loss with this type of approach because as your skills improve, your comfort level and confidence will develop and continue to grow as well. Making adjustments as needed will also help your success. Start using a few of these tips now, and see how they will support you to grow your wealth. Please feel free to share your experiences.

9 Practical Financial Rituals for Growing Your Wealth

  1. Diversify your investments into a broad mix of stocks and bonds. Don’t put all 100 percent of your money in stocks. Use mutual funds which lets you own a mix of stocks or bonds in a portfolio to manage your risk. Investing in mutual funds that diversify with a group of stocks or bonds is much safer than putting all your money into one or two stocks or bonds.
  2. Review your investment asset allocation periodically. Start saving and investing as early as you can. Create a plan you will follow. Small sums of money add up over time.
  3. As you grow older it’s a good idea to move your assets into less-risky investments. A quick rule of thumb is to have an allocation to bonds that is equal to your age. When the market climate is positive, you could increase your allocation to have a little more equity, however, have an exit strategy for when the trend changes.
  4. Track your investments costs. High trading costs eat into your gains over time.
  5. Keep control of your emotions when investing. The stock market can go up and down very quickly.  Know your time horizon for investing whether it’s for 1 year or less, 5, 10, or 20 years or more.
  6. Don’t have more money invested than you are comfortable with. Its ok to reduce your invested position in small increments. If you are worried and not sleeping at night, you are too invested. Manage your risk. Avoid taking large losses on your investments. Remember small losses are the best losses you can have.
  7. Don’t be afraid to talk about our finances. Don’t hide from the conversation. If you are feeling a bit unsure, look for some help from a coach, investment adviser, or a financial planner who could help you create changes to support you on your journey to wealth.
  8. Take advantage to contribute into a retirement savings plan if offered by your employer. Start with a few percent of your income and then increase the contribution to 10%.
  9. If you need to withdraw money to live on because you are not working, see if you can limit yourself to withdrawing 4 percent or less a year. In this way, you will preserve your capital for later years in life so you don’t run out of money. 

Financial security is important. Take responsibility for your money by developing practical financial rituals that will create a lifestyle you want and deserve. Your plan doesn’t have to be hard or disruptive to your everyday life. Start your plan now and fulfill your hopes, dreams, and goals growing your wealth.

It’s been well-established by many successful entrepreneurs that intuition plays a crucial role in their success.

Steve Jobs, Sir Richard Branson, Oprah and Arianna Huffington …. among others have been quoted several times regarding intuition.

This is one of my favorites:

THE HARDSHIP IN CONNECTING AND RELYING ON INTUITION:

Yet despite the “understanding” that this is a necessary skill to succeed in business and life, few people take the time to immerse themselves into truly developing their intuitive gifts (unless they are of course healers or psychics).

But for the rest of us mortals, it appears like there’s something akin to: “yeah, yeah…that’s nice, but I need some REAL skills, I need some PRACTICAL skills” to grow my business.

Perhaps it feels like it’s such an abstract set of skills that we are unsure about HOW to develop them, HOW to practice or HOW to use them effectively in our business.

Our world is dominated by an over-abundance of masculine energy. The energy of yang is the energy of action, movement and getting things done. It’s the energy of manifestation and the masculine energy that we, Westerners, have come to revere so deeply.

This is the energy of action and results. What our entire economy is based on. We value “hard work”. We believe we must work hard in order to succeed and therefore if we want success the more we work, the more “exalted” we become in our minds.

There are so many common beliefs that cement this practice:

“No pain, No Gain”;

“Work now, Play later.”

“Money doesn’t grow on trees,”

“Early bird, gets the worm.”

And yet…consistent action, movement, and hard work are pointless if there’s no depth, no purpose and no integrated meaning behind our actions.

There’s also a point of diminishing results.

As a high-performance psychologist, one of the things we teach people is that there is this “Inverted U Theory”, which states that increases in effort and arousal will yield a performance increase…

Up to a certain point (ONLY), after which, further increases in effort and arousal will yield a DECREASE in performance. To the point that the harder you work, the worse results you will get.

As “old” as this theory and practical piece of knowledge is in our performance psychology field, it hasn’t actually permeated the everyday world.

People are STILL working as hard as they can, waving a flag of pride and martyrdom until they land in burnout or experience health consequences.

Then we have this “wake up moment”, but sadly, we don’t know HOW to do things differently, and as hard as we TRY…it’s difficult to circumvent well-established wiring and neuro pathways that “tell us” that hard work is the ONLY road to success.

So.HOW do we extricate ourselves from this merry-go-round?

How do we exit the fast train in which Gurus, exploit our doubts and sense of inadequacy by selling us on yet “another tactical skill” (webinars, live events, FB ads, you name it), that will keep us in this constant feedback loop of not-good-enough, overwork, overwhelm and burnout?

We need the balancing form of Feminine energy or yin. The RECEPTIVE, the intuitive and the loving, collaborative nature of this energy. It is an energy of depth, insight, wisdom, and magic.

The answer is simple in essence and complex in execution (which is why not more people are doing it.)

Yep. It’s that simple. The difficulty comes when our minds and egos get involved. And the smarter you are, the more you’ll struggle to listen and follow your intuition because you are so accustomed to relying on your cognition.

WHY IS INTUITION SO CRUCIAL IN BUSINESS?

When we can connect and use our intuition we are able to become more efficient and maximize the work we do.

In the most basic sense, intuition is about LISTENING…is about developing the listening skills to “hear” your Highest Guidance, but also to tune into your ideal clients and sense what do they need?

What would be most beneficial and valuable to them?

At what level would they be able/willing to invest in?

And if you can be perceptive enough to receive this information and KNOW what will be of most value, you will circumvent so much time, energy and frustration as you’d be tuned into what you need to provide.

Following this pathway, I’ve generated up to $18,500 in a single day and built a multi 6-Figure Business.

Intuition will allow you to KNOW WITH CLARITY AND CERTAINTY what is YOUR path.

WHO to hire as a mentor.

WHAT opportunity to pursue that will support your greatest evolution.

And it allows you to enter a state of grace and flow.

HOW DO I GET THERE?

There is a simple and joyful pathway to this: PLAY.

Yep, you heard me right. Play.

Play is the action that returns us back to our “natural selves”. That connects us to “our inner child” where creativity, innovation, adventure, intuition, and curiosity reside.

There is obviously so much more to developing your intuition in powerful ways that will serve your business and life, but PLAY can be a GATEWAY through which you can begin to establish this connection.

And of course, we’ll weave in some of the science and the practices to get you there!

Life has a funny way of causing you to grow. I’ve noticed over the years that you either get the lesson or situations will keep appearing until you do. One of the best decisions I did in my life almost eight years ago was when I was asked, “Why are you so negative”? This question was the turning point for me to realize it was time to become committed to my own personal growth. At some deep level I understood I needed to create changes within my outlook that would release my negativity so I could begin living a healthier happier life. Since then I’ve worked at becoming a better person and enjoying life more. There is still more to be done but I can say that now I’m less stressed, more fit, and feel a sense of freedom that had escaped me.  Magic happens when you get out of your own way. This path of growth hasn’t always been easy (and I have had plenty of bumps along the way) but it’s a journey well worth the effort.

If your life isn’t where you had hoped and you find yourself struggling, tell me, what would it be like for you to have your days filled with better health, more wealth, and an abundance of happiness? What would you change in order to live the life you desire? At times it can appear well beyond your reach, but you can create all these things and more by being the best you can be right now. Nothing more, your best self at this very moment, and then the next moment after that. Change can be overwhelming and I’ve found small steps get better results.

. The more you know and understand about yourself the better. Happiness is a choice, and the journey begins as a result of the decisions you make along the way. Better information will allow you to make better choices.

Taking the first steps toward creating your ideal life might seem challenging but the effort is rewarding when you do what is needed and follow through. What you will want to focus on next is the process of investing in your personal growth and overall well-being. Empower yourself by deciding within your mind and heart you will do the work now. You are past settling for what simply comes your way. Now is the time to harness your inner power. Look around and you will see many opportunities available right at your fingertips. All you have to do is grab them and they will help get you there. It’s time to put energy and effort into yourself. You are worth it! Let today be the day you invest in you.

We are all a work in progress. There is no reason to wish when you can take a proactive part in making your dreams a reality and live life to the fullest. There will be those that oppose you but don’t give up on your dreams. Practice will get you where you want to be.

Once your momentum gets going you will love seeing your progress and the benefits you’ll experience from investing in your inner growth. The best part is you don’t have to do it alone. You can find supportive people you trust and feel comfortable around to help you along the way. Make the intention and someone will appear in your life exactly at the right time.  You know the old saying “When the student is ready the teacher appears”. It’s so true! Out of the blue, when you least expect them to arrive there they are. This was my experience while on my well-being journey of self-discovery and it can happen to you too. Keep your eyes and your heart open, opportunities are everywhere.

Below are many of the important lessons I’ve learned along the way. Pick a few to focus on and share your results. Thank you for being in my community. I’m here for you.

Are you ready for more happiness in your life? Most people are caught up in all that can go wrong that they miss out on all the joy right in front of them. Finding mine has taken years of work and self-discovery. As I look back on my own journey what has helped me the most is in being thankful for the lessons learned and the ability to embrace each experience by being present in the moment. As it turns out this past month turned out to be one of my happiest yet. It was jam-packed with excitement, family time, personal development training, and celebrations to treasure for a lifetime. 

My adventure started with a Mother’s Day filled with fun and an array of emotions as I thought of my own mom (RIP) and everyone who may be missing their mom on such a special day. Time has helped me to heal so the day was not as sorrow filled as it has been in years past. Over time I’ve learned to focus on the good times we shared instead of being sad I’m not with my mom. Redirecting my focus has allowed me to enjoy the day by being fully present for my own family. If you’ve lost someone so special then you too know and understand how it feels. My hope is you were also able to fully enjoy your day. My day started with my husband, Neil giving me a beautiful bouquet of flowers and making me a delicious breakfast. Then my daughter gave me a certificate saying we were going to spend time together at Muse Paint bar creating a picture of flowers (we had so much fun together). Then before I could soak everything in, Neil gave me tickets to see Barry Manilow! I was so surprised and still get excited all over again just thinking about it. Barry happens to be my most favorite singer for the past 40 years and I never get tired of seeing him perform. We finished off the night with more family and had a barbecue together sharing laughs, memories, and plenty of love. It was a perfect day.  

Last month was great for my personal development as well since I was also able to attend a Retreat Weekend in Portland Oregon. It was there I had the opportunity to see my coach face to face and meet up with friends who also take part of the six-month mastermind program (a customized blend of group coaching in an environment where it is a safe place to talk openly filled with continuous learning). There was so much wisdom shared, and genuine support from one another. While spending time together, we were challenged to stretch beyond our limiting beliefs and also learned the importance of living in the moment for an optimal life experience. It was life changing and filled with many a-ha moments. Not only for myself but also for everyone within this group. A very special time I will always cherish.

After spending my alone time in Oregon it was back to New York to take part in one of the proudest moments any parent can have. My daughter, Amanda completed her Masters in Special Education with honors.  As it turned out the honors ceremony was on the first day back after I returned from my trip. Needless to say it was a busy day. That weekend we went to the graduation ceremony to celebrate her success. Neil and I are very proud of her accomplishments, and know without a doubt she will make a difference in the lives of every child she touches and will continue to be a positive influence in the years to come.

 

 Every single second is an opportunity to change your life because in any moment you can change the way you feel.” – Rhonda Byrne

 

Easy Daily Practical Rituals For More Happiness

Do you find yourself getting frustrated, distracted or irritated easily? It is possible to start your day with less stress, anxiety, and feeling more refreshed. You can create more joy in your life with a positive mindset. Simply make a commitment to yourself by incorporating disciplined daily rituals so you can be at your best.  

You will find daily rituals will:

  • Raise your energy, will increase your happiness and you will have more success.
  • Help you be more optimistic and give you a feeling of more confidence.
  • Help you relax.
  • Help your focus to achieve the tasks or goals you desire.
  • Help you build a strong mental attitude.

Some examples of easy daily rituals for more happiness:

  • Have a healthy breakfast.
  • Sit quietly for 5 minutes taking a few deep breaths.
  • Focus on what is positive in the moment.
  • Learn to focus on what you want, not what you don’t have.
  • Move your body – create a short exercise routine that you like and will do each day.
  • Read for 5 minutes on an area in life that interests you.
  • Write down 6 goals you want to accomplish. Circle the top 3 and focus on them until complete, not doing the other ones. In this way, you will see what is most important and a priority to you.

By taking consistent action with your daily rituals you will create happiness and experience more joy in life. We all lead busy lives but you can still take the time to celebrate special times with your family and friends. Life has so much to offer and as your journey continues, learn to become mindful of each moment and enjoy the process of growth along the way.  Keep your momentum going forward. Choose what you desire in life, and be open to new challenges and opportunities. Life is amazing, be happy and continue to help others along the way.

Admit it, you’re stressed and sometimes feel overwhelmed to the point where it seems as though there is no end to all the busyness.  Time is such a precious commodity and also highly coveted when you discover there isn’t enough of it within the day to accomplish what you want to do.  Tell me, when was the last time you did something to inspire you and make you feel good? If you’re like most professionals it’s been longer than you can remember. Redirecting your focus toward your well-being is an important step in helping you to relax, have fun, and feel increased inner peace. When you do, you “get in the zone of life”, which inspires confidence and brings balance so everything within work and home flows better. Doing what you love makes every part of your life better and can greatly impact how you experience your world. Don’t wait weeks and months to pass by. Now is the time to take action! You only need to redirect your attention to receive the maximum benefits. 

How you create a balance between your personal obligations and work demands makes the difference in how quickly you get in the zone of life and begin doing more of what you love to do. Striking a balance between the two will allow you to start doing what you love to do NOW instead of later and also add an abundance of tranquility and inner peace within your life. Start the process by acknowledging there is work to be done and decide you will schedule time in your day solely dedicated to those things that bring you joy. Schedule some “me time”. You deserve fun in your life. You can choose to experience these times of dedicated joy alone, with family, or with friends. What matters most is you spend the time. Your brain needs to decompress and to get away from it all too; and there is nothing better than a juicy chapter in a book, listening to music, a short or long vacation, or starting the day in meditation watching the sunrise to renew your spirit and well-being.

Carving out time is one area you will need to plan to really get in the zone of life. You also want to learn how to be in the now so you can fully enjoy the experience instead of think of those things causing you stress. This can be more than challenging especially if you are in the habit of being “on” all the time or you put a lot of pressure on yourself.  I know this feeling well and the challenge for me was in quieting my brain enough so I could fully enjoy my “me” time. I found myself time and again getting caught up in the moment and feeling fearful wondering what someone might be saying and or even judging myself on what I was doing (or not doing) at the time. I wasn’t in the zone of life. What worked for me was practice and meditation.  I made it a priority to schedule the time to focus training my mind to silence those thoughts so I could learn to enjoy more what was right in front of me. This has made a world of difference. I’m less stressed and have a better handle on those feelings of overwhelm. (I’m not perfect, I do have times where I slip up). What I realized was I didn’t know how to fully embrace my “me” time experience before moving on to something else. Those feelings of peace and tranquility alluded me until I learned the importance to celebrate my successes each step of the way. It’s OK to put yourself first and to meet your get in the zone of life goal.  Pat yourself on your back and enjoy your moment of greatness in what you have created. You’re worth it!

Another barrier to getting into the zone of life is focused misdirection. In the past, I would create large lists of all the things I had to do. Large never ending lists on various pieces of paper (all of which was overwhelming in itself), scratchpads, or within notebooks. I found I would focus on these various lists and the many minute details within each task. These unfinished lists turned into me resisting action because I kept telling myself I can’t’, I’m afraid, and/or it’s not good enough. As a result, I turned to food when feeling stressed and fearful. I was so overwhelmed by what I had to do I was unable to create the positive momentum needed in order to even start. I was sabotaging myself over and over again to the point it would take months to take a small step forward on projects I really wanted to do. I would worry about the future and focus on what could go wrong. I would get angry at myself and then find myself frustrated. Totally not a good place to be! Don’t do like I did. There was no benefit to these choices.  Decide now you will focus on your most important item first. Breathe deeply and re-center if you find yourself falling back into old habits. Learn to embrace the process by not focusing on the end result but by focusing on the one specific task at hand. Step into your fear a little bit at a time and you will be able to take on later. Remember to focus more on what you want, instead of what you don’t want.  I had to learn worry won’t make things happen faster or make things better. Use your time redirecting your focus by visualizing the positives that will come from you moving through your fear and stepping forward toward completion. When you let go of the fear, relax your mind, and learn to trust yourself and others, you will get in your zone and become a believer in all you can do. This alone can have a major impact in your life. It’s something you will need to work on and I’ve put together some additional ideas to help you when you are not in balance and allow you to get into the zone so you can live life to the fullest.

 11 Easy Ways How You Quickly Get in the Zone of Life

  1. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Many times, what is bothering you isn’t really very important and work itself out within a few days.
  2. Relax instead of worry. Be grateful for what you have, and make choices to do what you love to do.
  3. Take better care of you. Get to know yourself better giving you more confidence in your professional and personal life.
  4. Write down your favorite way to spend the day, and then schedule an appointment with yourself on your calendar. For example: Have a spa day, or buy yourself a gift you have wanted for a long time and haven’t given yourself the permission to buy.
  5. Shift your mindset to a more positive one. If you are feeling a little down, grab your pen and paper. Create a list of 10 things to make you smile. Choose one and do it.
  6. Soothe your soul with something you love, gives you a big pick me up, and a burst of energy.
  7. Do the kindest thing you can do for yourself if you are sad, or maybe in pain whether it’s physical or emotional.  My favorite thing is to begin each day with soft spiritual music, and finish my week with a clean desk at work, and have a 2-hour massage.  
  8. Don’t ever give up on your dreams or goals. Believe miracles happen each and every day.
  9. Be positive and enthusiastic.  Don’t complain, instead smile and be the one who brightens up a room when you are around others.
  10. Be brave. Go out of your comfort zone.  Keep it simple. You can do anything you set your mind to. 
  11. Make it a habit each day of doing one act of kindness for other people. You can change their life. They will feel good and you will too.

After you’ve started the process you may find you are at a point where you are not making progress in getting into the zone of life. If this does happen then I urge you to keep pushing forward and to refocus your attention on the feelings of success you’ve experienced in the past. You may not see it but you have made progress in making creating a shift in your life. Keep in mind it takes the time to change habits you have developed over a lifetime and may not have been in your best interest because you are now shifting the tides within an ocean has only brought you stress and overwhelm. Decide today you deserve fewer struggles, more enjoyment in life, and to feel real inner peace. Don’t allow your schedule to be so full you aren’t putting you and your well-being first. Stop worrying about the future and what might happen. Avoid focusing on your fear and focus on getting into the zone of life! I have learned from experience stepping into the fear and allowing yourself to feel it creates inner growth faster than if you simply do nothing. It takes practice and patience with you to break the cycle and by deciding to “do it (as my coach says) will put action behind the fear and push it out of the way. Once you take action, you will get better and better at it and in time your fear dissipates. By digging deep for your inner courage, you will discover it will become second nature to you and with each new challenge you will be stronger and better equipped. Overcome your initial feelings of fear by asking for help and turning to someone who supports you such as a friend, an accountability partner, or an experienced coach. When you take action, you will be amazed at how you good feel. 

You have a choice every day on how you will handle and the attitude you will embrace for what shows up in your life. Decide today to look for what you can learn and choose to only focus on what is positive. Don’t get caught up in frustration, anger, or lose focus on those negative thoughts coming into your mind. It’s a waste of valuable time and good energy. Train yourself to stop for a moment, take a long deep breath, and refocus your attention on what you want. Get into the zone of life by knowing what is important to you and put yourself in the mix by carving out time for doing what you love to do. Making this adjustment in your life will create more wealth and well-being so you can live a lifestyle filled with the happiness, inner peace, and all the freedom you want and desire.

Life is filled with twists and turns. Taking small actions toward what you want to achieve can create a new perspective on how you go about achieving your hopes, dreams, and aspirations. Have you or someone you’ve known ever challenged you to create goals beyond what you had imagined you could do? I know I have, and it’s made all the difference in my life! Goal setting is not rocket science but why go about it the same way over and over again? One of the best approaches I’m learning to help you succeed is to focus on improving your weaknesses so they become your strengths. You can do this by putting a plan in place that will keep things fresh and will help you feel renewed. Start by deciding that during this process of growth you are going to have fun, choose to be happy and do what your heart wants you to do. Life is short and can pass us by pretty fast so you want to take care of yourself and not spend too much time sweating the small stuff.

If you find yourself needing to pull yourself out of a funk, you can do so by changing your mindset and by shifting the language you use. It all starts with you accepting things for what they are.  Seeing life with all its ups and downs allows you to make better decisions about your plan of action. This small exercise will unlock your inner peace and is a great way to center your thoughts so you can begin finding the answers that will turn your weaknesses into new strengths, and also allow you to enjoy each day. 

When I started on my well-being journey I never imagined what an impact a change in perspective could be. The power to believe, added with simple consistent action steps has lead me to discover new strengths which had been hidden from my view.  The writing was never my strong point, math was. I didn’t even have to write a business letter in my corporate job, and my boss would put together the proposals to prospective clients so I didn’t get much practice. I do remember as a child that I did love writing letters to my teachers, friends, and family thanking them for their love and support.

As I grew life changed, I found other interests, that didn’t include writing.  A breakthrough appeared when one of my coaches gave me the assignment to write a poem. I wrote back to her expressing my apprehension with a big “Are You Kidding Me?” She wrote back and said, no she was not kidding and that I could do it. Yikes! I remember the fear and worry that filled my spirit. It was crazy that my coach had more belief I could write a poem than I did in myself. Instead of saying “I can’t” (one of my favorite answers before I started coaching), I dug deep and found the courage to move beyond my comfort zone and I started to write.  

Little did I know how much fun the process would be. It has opened up a new set of possibilities both personally and professionally. I learned when you find the courage to do something and continue to do it you gain a sense of confidence that spills over into all areas of your life. When I grow hesitant about trying something beyond my comfort zone, I do my best to remember back how fear used to fill me and how the flood of overwhelm would be so strong it would leave me paralyzed. Then I remind myself how I overcame all of that by finding the courage within myself to push through. This is something that has helped me time and time again. We all need a bit of encouragement and to help you make the shift take a moment and read my poem The Power of Inner Peace is Within Reach. My hope is you will realize all you can accomplish by changing your old way of thinking so you will explore new opportunities.

Putting myself out there in such a way was quite a challenge, especially since I knew that writing was not a strength I possessed. It was five years ago when I wrote that poem and had the courage to share on my blog. It taught me a valuable lesson in trusting myself and in the process of cultivating my untapped abilities. It goes to show you the power of how one thing can lead into another so that you can grow into who you are meant to be. Which, by the way, later on, another seed was planted by my mentor, when she said to me “you have a book in you.”  What? Writing a poem was such stretch that I laughed at the idea of writing a book. It was only with the support of my coach and working on having a positive mindset that I was able to discover that there really was a book in me when I published “Journey to Wealth”.  It took time and plenty of revisions but I’m proud to say it’s published and available on Amazon. Who knew? I didn’t, that’s for sure! Don’t doubt yourself. Your thoughts and perspective make a huge difference in what you do, Unlock the strength inside of you and take the steps needed so you can move forward today with a healthy outlook. 

How to Turn Your Weaknesses into Strengths

  1. Realize the impact of attitude on life. Raise your awareness to what your weakness might be and accept them, instead of going to the place of frustration.
  2. Ask someone you can trust for help that has done what you want to do.
  3. Start with doing one simple step. Practice to gain confidence and get better and better each day.
  4. Don’t take criticism or feedback personally. Not everyone is going to like what you do. Ask yourself what you can learn from the feedback that has been given to you.
  5. Change your thought process to think solutions. Focus on how to fix the problem, not on the obstacle. Don’t stay in a place of anger and keep focusing on what is negative, focus on what is positive
  6. Believe in Yourself. You are ready for unexpected challenges that arise. Think back to those challenges you already have handled in your life.
  7. Learn from your past mistakes, don’t beat yourself up, press on.

Start today by doing something you have never done before. The time has come for you to break through your challenges and gain a new perspective that will empower your new way of thinking. Do this by creating a plan and make it simple enough for you to follow. Revise as needed so you will stick with it. When you put in the effort to master a new skill, you will become excited again. The energy and revitalization you feel inside as you chart a new course in your life will become the foundation that will enable you to do even more. An opportunity exists at every turn. Take advantage of it. Create change in your life with small actions steps that move you closer to increased wealth and well-being. Living inside your comfort zone is not a good option if you want to find the fulfilled happiness you deserve. When you start to turn your weaknesses into strengths there are brighter days ahead so you can experience all richness life has to offer.
