7 Steps to Create a Kick-Ass Lifestyle

What’s a kick-ass lifestyle? It’s 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, using the following seven steps.

Make Decisions Quickly

You simply cannot kick ass when you’re dragging your feet. Hesitation delays rewards. The most successful people make decisions quickly. Sure, we need to do our homework to ensure we’re making the best decisions, but waiting too long will only make us older, not better or more relevant. 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.” The fact is the most successful people learn to make quick decisions, so can you!   https://anitagwheeler.com

Change Your Perspective

Sometimes, we get sidelined or stuck in a rut and can’t find a way to get back on track. We can change that by changing our perspective. Instead of viewing a situation as negative, look for ways to use it as a positive. When you shift your perspective, you shift your mindset so it can assist you in recognizing opportunities disguised as challenges. Make a commitment to yourself that when you FEEL you are going in the wrong direction with your emotions, you will remind yourself to shift. (What you resist persists!)

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

You cannot control the universe, so there’s no reason to try. We all have a natural tendency to want 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 like control becomes an impenetrable wall that keeps everything at bay, even those things that we really want. If we let go and trust in the abundance of the universe, we are open to receiving abundance, rather than restricting it. Here’s the deal: it’s the decisions that we make, not the circumstances, that we need to focus on. There are always going to be circumstances in your life that change from day to day and sometimes moment to moment. It’s called non-resistance. In order to let go, stay in a mental mode of non-resistance.

Tame the “FEAR FACTOR”

Nobody likes to make mistakes. Nobody wants to fail. 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.  

STOP focusing on what could go wrong and focus on what can go right. Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will. Kick Ass means stopping yourself in your tracks when FEAR raises its ugly head. If you need to, look at your beliefs and start turning those around. Get a coach and BREAKTHROUGH the fear.

Spend Time with Fun, Happy and 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, creating a kick-ass lifestyle isn’t an end goal—it’s a process. Don’t wait until you have your life exactly as you want it or give up on the life that deep down you believe might be possible.  DESIGN your life exactly like you want it to actually BE. Start by finding friends who are supportive of you and your dreams. BE around POSITIVE people 99% of the time.  It’s your choice.  Choose wisely. If your friends are not positive most of the time… let them go.

Work Out” Exercise

A kick-ass lifestyle isn’t just about money, success, or fame. It’s also about being healthy and having the energy to enjoy life and your passions. Get moving and get your blood pumping—it invigorates your mind, increases your energy, and proactively prevents health problems. The best way to get more energy is to amp up the energy you do have available. Momentum brings more momentum, and energy creates more energy. You know the feeling that you get when you go to the gym to exercise and you HATE going, but when you leave you feel great.  You have started “moving” your energy.  Energy begats energy.  If you are a couch potato your energy needs a KICK ASS motivation boost. Get up and get out.  

One of the biggest moneymaking industries today is WEIGHT LOSS. Most of us have found ourselves in the gain weight and diet cycle, yet only about 2% succeed long term. Why don’t we succeed? Because we want instant gratification, but losing weight requires a LIFESTYLE change. This is where your values come into play and you need the KICKASS attitude and determination to really create a long-term game. Get your head (thoughts) straight and do it.

Know When to Take a “Timeout”

You cannot be on the go all of the time—your body and mind need to rest and rejuvenate. You need down time to heal, regroup, and adapt to the changes in your career and life. If you’re losing interest, at a standstill, or questioning your choices, step back and take a break. Once your mind is clear and you know what you want, you’ll be rested and ready to jump back in the game with all gears moving at full speed.

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.

Ground Rules for YOUR Business (and Life?)

Some business strategies to boost your income…

Ground RULES for Your Business
Ground RULES for Your Business

Do you need some effective “Business Ground Rules” or “Business Strategies?”

You might want to start with some Guidelines…. so here are some basic ground rules. I use this list for my clients and I recommend that you take this list and adapt it to your business (or future business!) Some of these apply to LIFE as well.

Trust Your Intuition 

Yes.  Trust your intuition in your business!  You haven’t gotten to where you are in life without at least starting to develop your intuition.

The fact is that inside of you, you already KNOW.

(It is an inside job!)

Keep developing that small voice that says.”Wait this doesn’t feel right” or “This new client and I are going to do great working together.”  Or you may even be thinking, “I need to move out of this job.  I hate it .”

Here is what I know to be the truth,  you can learn to develop that voice by slowing down, listening and by giving yourself space to hear your own voice.

Take It Seriously, But LOVE What You DO

Business is serious and you need to look at it for what it is.

BUSINESS.

That means treating it like a business, not a hobby.

Do what you do best!  Hire out the aspects of your business that you hate doing because frankly, it is a waste of you precious time doing something you hate doing.

Business strategies involve making money.

BUT and it is a big BUT… Love what you do. Do what you love. Make it work for you. “Believe you can and you will.”

Over Deliver and Give Great Value

Always and Always. Give what you believe your clients want AND Continue reading “Ground Rules for YOUR Business (and Life?)”

Coach Says “Stop Looking at Your Circumstances and Change Your Awareness!”

COACHING INSIGHTS

Coaching may create a GOLD BALLERINA FOUNTAIN for you.
The world is the abode of desires and fears. You cannot find peace in it. For peace you must go beyond the world.”

On some level we really get this.

On another level we deny it, because although we KNOW it to be true, we don’t want to think that the outer world we are currently experiencing is not our “Real Life.”  

As a Business Coach, Life Coach and Success Coach the subject inevitably comes up around successes in life and the TRUTH of the matter is it is AN INSIDE JOB.

We easily get caught up in ‘Appearances’ and think that what we see around us (our circumstances) are what is true.

Circumstances are just that.

Circumstances.

They come every day.

Day-after-day.

I believe that we are here to CHANGE.  To grow and to transform our lives.

If I didn’t…I wouldn’t be coaching!

Some fifteen years ago as I was completing my own COACH TRAINING I hired a Coach.

There were numerous Coaches that had been recommended, however I found myself trusting my intuition.

I hired THE BEST Coach I could afford at the time and the Coach that I felt that could expedite my growth as a new Coach!

It was one of the best investments in “Me” that I could have made.

In that process, I learned a lot.

So much in my life at that time was tied to “appearances.”  (We all want to LOOK good to others, right?)

As we see more and more of that in our world today, when I found this article about “Transcending Appearances” I wanted to share it with you!

Below are some “TIPS” from Dr. Wayne Dyer on Transcending Appearances.

#1  Let Go of Attachments

In silence, start to release your attachment to the importance of outer impressions. You might visualize yourself building a huge bonfire and imagine tossing things into the fire. Throw in your jewelry, clothes, automobiles, trophies, everything, even your job title. With each item that goes into this imaginary fire, feel yourself being freer and freer.

#2  Remove Labels Attached To Your life.

Make an attempt to describe yourself without using any labels. Write a few paragraphs in which you do not mention your age, sex, position, title, accomplishments, possessions, experiences, heritage or geographical data. Simply write a statement about who you are, independent of all appearances.

#3  Look For The Loving Presence In Others.

Take a day to attempt to see the fullness of God in everyone you encounter. Rather than seeing only another physical being, tell yourself that the Christ in me is meeting the Christ in you. Or spend a day silently reciting the word “love” whenever you encounter another human being. This has such a powerful effect that you may choose to use it as a silent background mantra throughout your day.

#4  Remember That You Build Muscles By Picking Up Heavier Objects.

This applies to your spiritual weight lifting, too. You will build yourself up spiritually by attempting tougher and tougher assignments. One of the toughest assignments is to disregard the ego message to evaluate yourself with the criteria of appearance and possessions. But know each time you are able to be less judgmental toward others or yourself, you are becoming stronger by having taken on the heavier spiritual weights.

#5 Cultivate YOUR calling.

Make an attempt to shift your career objective from self-absorption to a CALLING. That’s right, a CALLING. Use your talents and gifts to SERVE.   Your life work will take on a dramatic shift toward abundance, and you will feel on purpose and more of your true SELF.

(In order to make the changes you want to make quickly and with RESULTS consider HIRING A COACH.)

ARE YOU TRADING TIME FOR MONEY? It’s Your Mindset!

Invest in yourself, not someone else.

invest in yourself

Are you a person that is trading your time for money?  Invest in yourself instead.

I remember graduating from college. So excited about starting a career, all I thought about was trading my time for money. Back then, I had a lot of time. But not a lot of money.

Trading time for money.

What a great concept! Getting a salary every month sounded like the most wonderful thing in the world.

YEA … a paycheck! I would sit and think about how I could spend that money. You know. The “American Dream” (now known by some as the “American Nightmare”).

But I didn’t know what I didn’t know. I didn’t know that trading time for money was a limited concept. Meaning, I would not be in control of how much money I could make! I didn’t realize I could invest in MYSELF!

Fast forward several years. Continue reading “ARE YOU TRADING TIME FOR MONEY? It’s Your Mindset!”

The All Important BRAIN DUMP!

The all important brain dumpYou may have heard the term “Brain Dump” (or not) but, brain dump sounds like something interesting at least.

I had just been introduced to the Wild World of Internet Marketing and I had gotten an invitation to an event in Atlanta. As a Life Coach/Breakthrough Coach I thought it would be an interesting learning opportunity~

And, I was offered a $1,000 FREE ticket!

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.
