What is a Kick-Ass Lifestyle and How to Get Started!

 Kick-Ass Lifestyle

What’s a Kick-Ass lifestyle?

It is simple….it is getting things done and making things happen. It’s about progress, results, and steamrolling past obstacles and challenges. It’s true that most people want a kick-ass lifestyle; however, it remains just beyond their reach, largely because they don’t know how to kick it in gear and make it happen.

The good news is there are ways to manifest such a lifestyle if you follow these tips!

1. Quick Decisions

You simply cannot kick ass when you’re dragging your feet.  Hesitation delays rewards.

The most successful people make decisions quickly.  It’s True!  Don’t wait until tomorrow, next month, or next year—make a decision so you can get moving toward what you want today. Everything in your life begins with a decision. As Tony Robbins says, “I believe that it’s in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.”

 

2. Let Go of   Controlling (Which isn’t Happening, Anyway!)

Let Go. We all have a natural tendency to TRY to control what’s happening to us and around us, but the more we attempt to exert control, the less control we actually have. It’s true.  Sometimes it is best to be OPEN to everything.  Let go of resistance and see what happens.

 

3. Tame the “FEAR FACTOR”

Fear of failure is one of the main reasons we don’t pursue goals or follow our dreams. The Fear factor is a huge impediment to a kick-ass lifestyle … and one that’s got to go quickly if you want to have the life you dream about, be what and who you want to be, and do the things that make you feel good.  Here is the thing about Fear..the biggest thing you should Fear is being STOPPED by it and not living the life you were meant to live.

Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will. Kick Ass means stopping yourself in your tracks when FEAR raises its ugly head. I

 

4.  Spend  Your Time with  POSITIVE People

We are the people we hang around with most. If you hang around with negative, unhappy people, you’ll become negative and miserable. Spend time with fun, happy and POSITIVE people—you’ll become optimistic, carefree, and get more enjoyment in your life as it unfolds before you. Remember .. Choose wisely. If your friends are not positive most of the time, find new friends.

 

5.  Take  “Timeout”

A creative mind comes with space and clarity. A year or so ago, I was in a Mastermind with Jeff Walker (my hero) and Jeff talked about taking one day off a week with NO distractions. This advice really resonated with most of the entrepreneurs that were there. What did he mean about no distractions? That means NONE. No phone. No e-mails. NADA. Find the time to just do something you enjoy and check-out for the day.

What happens? You’ll come back with all kinds of new energy and insights that come out of that “nothingness” space—the place where creation is born.

 

You might want to take some time today or this week to see where you are and what you might want to incorporate into your life to KICK-ASS your lifestyle.  Give yourself permission to really get honest about what IS holding you back and what it is you really want to BECOME and how to get on the path to creating whatever lifestyle resonates with you.

GO FOR IT…(After all it  is your one and only precious life!)

Limiting Belief Is Detrimental to Achievement

Most of us have a limiting belief of what we’re capable of “BEING,” “DOING,” or “HAVING”…..

I was out walking yesterday and thought to myself, “Why don’t I do this more often?”

Walk.

I could even do it every day.

But do I have a ‘limiting belief’ of what I can do?

I do think about my health and in fact, have begun to make some major changes in what I eat. (I will share that another time).

You know we all have good intentions at the beginning of each year and now that months have passed you might and we are half way through that year you might want to revisit those intentions and connect with your mindset and beliefs!

The MAIN thing to remember is that good intentions can’t be connected to a conflicting belief.

For example, if you have an intention of losing weight you might:

  • A.  Sign up for the gym
  • B.  Hire a personal trainer
  • C   Buy new exercise shoes for motivation
  • D   Set days of the week in your Google calendar to make your decision more concrete.

These are all good actions IF you “COMPLETED” would assist you in reaching your goal.

But, what happens when you find that a month later, you just didn’t follow thru.

Could it be that you just didn’t align your intentions with your beliefs?

And, why would that make such a difference?

Here are some examples of Intention vs Conflicting Limiting Beliefs

Intention – I want a wildly successful business. Limiting belief – I have never had over five clients

Intention – I want to be healthy. Limiting Belief –I am not capable of the diet thing

Intention – I want a loving relationship. Limiting Belief – I don’t believe I am lovable

Intention – I want to be a millionaire. Limiting Belief – I’ve never made over $45,000 Continue reading “Limiting Belief Is Detrimental to Achievement”

ENTREPRENEURS WANT IT NOW & MOMS Make MILLIONS

working-moms can be entreprenuers

One of the things entrepreneurs find in today’s culture is we all want the answer to our questions NOW?

 

Entrepreneurs want immediate gratification.

Tell me what I can do NOW to get my business to six figures? Get my business on-line? Get more leads?

What about manifesting? 

What do I need to know today, so I can attract more into my life? More money, more business or the right relationships?

I get it, I really do.

Entrepreneurs want what we when we want it.

Right?

Me, too! I certainly get caught up in that vicious cycle at times!

Even this past week…..  I “pulled” my back out.  

(Ugh!)

I  quickly found myself forced to be in the present moment and slowing down at the same time I was thinking, “When can I get back (pun) to my regular routine?”

I had a LONG list of things on my schedule that I had “intended” to tackle, but just that moment in time, when I reached down to pick something up (the wrong way) everything changed.

So…slow down, I did!

And then today, in my morning meditation I find this… Continue reading “ENTREPRENEURS WANT IT NOW & MOMS Make MILLIONS”

ENGAGEMENT FOR ENTREPRENEURS – Working My Business

A working business: You work it, it will work for you!

Do you continue to ask yourself “What it is that I need to “BE” to step up in my life?”

“Working business into life.”

Joseph Campbell, one of my favorite authors and teachers, once said that life is NOT about making a living.

Life is about “FEELING ALIVE.” Most entrepreneurs totally get that quote by working in their business.

For most entrepreneurs each day (well, nearly all) are filled with the creative process of taking an idea into some segment of their working business and creating something that they hope will bridge a gap for them.

Serving their clients in a real and more meaningful way.

Being more authentic in who they present to the world!

Today, I want to share this VIDEO with you….

Job Hurdles and Your J.O.B. Freedom

Job hurdles can be a real challenge!

Looking for job hurdles

It seems that so many people today are seeking freedom and independence from a J.O.B.,

…but they admit they have some job hurdles in front of them.

Some are real. Some are not.

Of course, the KEY to getting over those hurdles is to figure out which hurdles are real (for you) or not.

I know when I started thinking about what is was that I wanted to do to “Make a Living,” it was for me more about what I didn’t want than what I wanted. (Not a bad place to start!)

I had already tried the entry kind of J.O.B.(receptionist at a restaurant, working at my Dad’s Army Surplus Store, you get the picture, not exactly the most glamorous of jobs). I sort of got the idea that this thing called “work” better be something I liked because standing behind a counter or sitting behind a desk was NOT what I planned to do for the next umptine years!

I LOVE ROCK’N ROLL AND COACHING ENTREPRENEURS

Rock N Roll… “Those were the days”!

I love  rock n roll

Who doesn’t love Rock ‘N Roll?

It conjures up visions of “Drove my Chevy to the Levy,” and “Good Golly Miss Molly.”

No matter where you are or what you’re doing, when the rock n roll music starts, it takes you back to a place and time that seem to have no space and time.

It just is!

There are so few places that jerk your being back into such immediacy.

To a clear body memory, hidden in that secret place some call “heart or soul.” Continue reading “I LOVE ROCK’N ROLL AND COACHING ENTREPRENEURS”

THINK AND GROW RICH….New Chapter

If you’ve never discovered ‘Think and Grow Rich” maybe today’s the day?

Think and grow rich

THINK AND GROW RICH, the book by Napolean Hill, is one of my favorite books on Success, Money, Mindset and Imagination. A new book, “Right to be Rich” has recently been released with some of Napolean Hill’s quotes on his Success Principles. This is a book you might want to consider for your MINDSET library. Here’s a taste…..

1) Mastery

“Whatever it is that you lack in education or knowledge or influence you can always obtain through somebody who has it. Exchange favors and exchange knowledge is one of the greatest exchanges in the world.”

2) Go the Extra Mile

“I don’t know of any one quality or trait that can get a person an opportunity quicker than to go out of his way or her way to do somebody a favor, or do something useful.”

3) Purpose

Coaches…”Who is Checking YOU Out and WHY?

Coaches are being searched out by potential clients.

coaches are looking to you to help find clarity in your business.

Did you know people are”Checking You Out” On-Line?

Yes they are.

They are searching on Google, Facebook, Twitter or various other Social Networks.

Why?

They want to know more about YOU.  

Who you are.

What your business is?

Coaches, do they want to do business with you?

They may have seen or connected with you on Social Media and want to know more about you.

I had a friend of mine call me yesterday who is a real estate agent and she had gotten a contract on a property she represents and she said she had immediately pulled up Google to check out the buyer and with one click, she found information on the Buyer that gave her more of a sense of who she was dealing with.

You may have someone want to “Friend” you on Facebook and more than likely you may do the same…check them out.

Here’s the deal.

Your WEBSITE is your on-line “real estate.”

The same goes for your Facebook Business Page.

(More than likely you are sending your followers back to your website to learn more about you!)

The truth is that people want to get a real sense of who you are, what you are all about, what the real YOU cares about, your values and of course, your big Why!

The thing is ….people don’t want your formal resume or bio, they just want to connect with a real person, YOU.

And they want to get a sense of what you do and IF you can help them.

Here are some tips you may want to consider.

5 Ways To Creating YOUR On-line Profile.

Tribute to Dr. Wayne Dyer “Don’t Die With The Music In You” 1940-2015

wayne dyer

One of my favorite authors and life mentors passed away this week, Dr. Wayne Dyer. You more than likely have read one of his many books or perhaps saw him on PBS. He was a man of conviction and a thought leader in an arena of many voices, but few as powerful as his.

Dr. Dyer was an internationally renowned author and speaker in the field of self-developement and spiritual growth. He is the author of over 40 books, including 20 New York Times Bestsellers. He was known as the Father of Self Development.

For those of us that followed Wayne Dyer since the 60’s and celebrated with him the break-throughs in our personal lives, as well as those around us, we will miss his bright smile, infinite wisdom, his authentic presence and his life changing works.

If you missed Dr. Dyers messages they are still available to you through his books and programs. (Hay House) Continue reading “Tribute to Dr. Wayne Dyer “Don’t Die With The Music In You” 1940-2015”
