“Awake,arise,and assert yourself,you dreamers of the world. Your star is now in ascendancy.”  Napoleon Hill

Over the past 12 days, I have shared with you some of my best coaching tips.  We have talked about being empowered, finding inner peace, success, achievement, mindset, unconditional love, communication skills, relationships, and more. I have been sending you loving thoughts and have held you in my innermost thoughts. I believe in your strength, your power, and your goals.

I know that if you truly make an inner commitment to what is most important to you- you can make it happen. It truly is up to you. You are the CEO of your own life. You are a deliberate creator.

Keep growing your awareness, stand up and own your goals, and take inspired action.

Today’s Tip:

“You are the master of your destiny. You can influence, direct and control your own environment. You can make your life what you want it to be.”  Napoleon Hill

I watched part of National Lampoon’s Christmas show late last night with the ever troubled character that Chevy Chase plays. Disaster and crazy happenings seem to follow him around. We laugh and giggle at the movie. When watching the movie, most people can look at their own holiday gatherings and their own lives and have a sense of thinking “at least my life is not that bad or my family is not that crazy.”

When you look a little deeper at the movie though, the theme taps the idea that events happen to people and people are the victims of their outer circumstances. In fact, the nicer you are are- the more disaster happens to strike. Chevy Chase’s character is a likable, funny, and normal guy- and nothing ever works out quite like he wants it to work out.

If  we look at Napoleon Hill’s quote that I provided above,  it directly contrasts with the messages that we receive in mainstream media and entertainment.  His quote reminds us that we do have great personal power. Don’t give it away and mostly don’t let it just fade away because you don’t use it.

You are more powerful than you can imagine. You are empowered every moment of every day.  Identify and align yourself with strength and the idea that you are a powerful, deliberate creator.  Journal Exercise Prompt: Ask yourself, “What do I want to create?”

It’s Christmas Day- 12 Days of Christmas Cheer

12 Days of Christmas Cheer

Day 10  of the 12 Days of Christmas Cheer Giveaway

Each day through Dec 27, I will offer a coaching tip on a self-growth topic, plus a free downloadable gift and a special discount on my coaching products. On the final day, I will be holding a drawing from all of the blog comments and will be giving out a $25 Amazon gift card to a drawing prize winner. Enter the drawing by commenting on the blog posts.

Today’s Tip: 

Merry Christmas. My favorite Christmas song is “O Holy Night” sung by Martina McBride (her accapella version). And my favorite Christmas season entertainment is the Nutcracker ballet.

It’s Christmas Day- a day of celebration and a day of both giving and receiving. It feels wonderful to give on Christmas, but it is also important to receive gifts graciously. Instead of “Oh, you shouldn’t have” or “That’s too much.” Try “Thank you so much.”

I find that holidays intensify our habitual ways of thinking and being. So, this is a great time to take notice of your patterns.  If you have a hard time receiving whether it is gifts, help, compliments, and/or money, you are blocking  the good things that are coming your way. When we refuse to be thankful, accepting, and gracious at receiving, we are saying “no” to the Universe- and the universe responds by adjusting your results.

Ever notice that when people are given a choice of good, better or best- they usually choose the middle choice. Why is that? Why don’t people choose the best more often?

If you notice that, in general, you fall short on realizing your goals, begin to be better at receiving. Set your intention to expand your openness to receive by five or ten times. One of the best ways to practice is to start accepting help when people offer it.

Today’s Tip:

It is Christmas Eve and I woke up this morning feeling so much love in my heart, not just for family, but for everyone in my life and all of humanity. I almost felt like my heart would burst with happiness. I started my morning with coffee and a drive through the country. I love the mountain views. When I see the sun rise and turn the snow capped mountains pink and purple with sparkles, it takes my breath away.

Here is a poem that I wrote in 2009- that I would like to share with you:

Winter Morning

Before dawn
Slowly moving
Stretching
I breathe in the chilly air
Snow crunching
Wind tickling my face
Part of me wants
To turn back
To snuggle in my warm bed
Part of me is awakening
With the promise
Of an exciting new day
I begin
Quickening the pace
Muscles warming
Heart accelerating
The sun is slowly creeping up
I turn the corner
At the top of the hill
I pause in glorious wonder
The mountain peaks
Snowy , sparkly, pink
As  the sun kisses them
Glowing with the
Promise of the new day.
Thank you Lord for your
spectacular, beautiful day.

Even though you are probably booked solid over the next few days with family gatherings, cooking, presents, and all of your Holiday traditions. Take a few minutes to breathe in the glorious day and appreciate the beauty surrounding you.

Today’s Tip: Life is Good

Today I was one of those people out getting a few last minute Christmas presents. Traffic was just crazy. I felt like it was almost as if everyone decided to go to the store at exactly the same time. An interesting thing happened though, instead of experiencing rude, grumpy people… every person I came into contact with- was smiling and kind.

Then I  thought about how I left the house. I was just expecting good and for life to flow. I found what I needed and had fun doing it.  I didn’t feel stress or irritation.  My thought was, “Life is good.”

“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”  Napoleon Hill

Our experience of events are determined by the thoughts that we have. For instance, if we think it is hard to grow older- guess what? That will be our experience. If we think people are rude- that will be our experience. Take a moment to think about the beliefs that you hold onto every day. Are they serving you well?

Try deciding ahead of time and believing  that your home will be filled with loving conversations and good times during the Holidays.

Wishing you days filled with love, happiness, and rich blessings.

Today’s Tip:

BookCoverImageThis morning, my youngest son (he is 13) and I when to Sports Authority to bring his snowboard rental back. We shopped a little trying out the new golf drivers in the golf shop. We had a great morning grabbing breakfast and coffee , washing my car and then going for a drive through the countryside. As we were driving, we talked about sports. His favorite is football and he plays running back on offense and linebacker on defense. Our conversation turned to competition. All of his friends are athletes too. My thoughts that I shared with Nick about competition were these:

As long as a person is concerned with being just better than other people on the field of play, this person will never know exactly how good he or she can be. The goal is to be your best, not anyone else’s best.

As we talked about this, I thought about how this really applies to anything- business, a career, school, etc.

Competition with other people is a distraction. Focusing on your own performance and becoming the best you- you can be is truly the most rewarding and the best gift you can give yourself, your team or your company.

You can also apply this to family dynamics- we don’t need to compete with siblings, cousins, or anyone. Enjoy each other’s strengths:)

12 Days of Christmas Cheer Day 6

12 Days of Christmas Cheer

Day 6 of the 12 Days of Christmas Cheer giveaway

Each day, I will offer a coaching tip on a self-growth topic, plus a free downloadable gift and a special discount on my coaching products. On the final day, I will be holding a drawing from all of the blog comments and will be giving out a $25 Amazon gift card to a drawing prize winner. Enter the drawing by commenting on the blog posts. (Note- One comment per day per person will be entered into the drawing).

Today’s Tip: 

90dayNewKindleCover2Assuming you have created the best plan and actions steps, ever, for your life, the question becomes- How do you implement it? The real questions are- how do you stay motivated for the day in and day out action that is required to achieve your goals? How do you get going on days when you really feel like doing nothing? And how do you keep from giving up when you experience a set-back or let-down?

I am a strong believer in intrinsic motivation. When you are able to truly tap your real inner reasons why you want to make a change and/or achieve a goal, you will be naturally more motivated. However, there are times, when it helps to have a “bag of tricks” or “a motivational toolbox”. Everyone needs extra- motivation at times.  When you plan ahead for those times, you won’t be caught by surprise when you just don’t want to take the needed action.

Here are some things to include in your “bag of tricks”:

  • Meditation mp3
  • Motivational mp3
  • Inspirational books
  • Inspirational quotes
  • Websites, phone numbers and email addresses of inspiring,uplifting people
  • Phone apps that inspire you
  • A favorite movie
  • An accountability buddy
  • Professional help from a coach or therapist
