Ignite Your Personal Power!

Image

Where your focus goes, your energy flows”… Walt Emerson.  I have experimented on his words and can attest they are true!  Could this be the reason we seem to be short of energy most days?  Because it is constantly flowing out of us in a million different directions?  personal power

I believe that we as women are constantly receiving the subtle message that more is required from us.  In many cases we are managing the finances, have primary responsibility for the care and nurture of the children, planning the family vacations, keeping the house, doing the laundry, the grocery shopping, tending the pets, preparing the meals, the yard work and in some cases even running a home based business!

When is enough ever enough?  When we recognize and mobilize our own inner voice that’s when!  Now I’m not talking about selfishness; I’m talking about high levels of achievement on your own terms!

Everyone’s definition of success is different. To some it may be becoming a New York Times best-selling author.  To someone else it may be being a good mother.  To yet another it may be living an authentic life or being a good daughter to aging parents.

My definition of success is achieving your goals (whatever they may be) on your own terms with an authentic expression of who you are.  With so many voices talking to us; it is sometimes hard to hear the most important one… the one who really does have all the answers… our own voice!

It is possible to live a joyful energetic life; counter balancing the myriad of responsibilities we have.  We can even make more money in our businesses if we choose to!

The secret is living a life by design!  A life YOU design and that’s what igniting your personal power is all about!

I’m sharing my journey and the way I achieved my life by design at the upcoming Interactive Women’s Conference at Boise Centre on the Grove, May 11, 2013.  Boise Idaho.  I hope to meet you there!

Until then, Onward & Upward My Friends!  Lisa

Disrespected Brain

Automatic Success MechanismAs students of achievement we are constantly seeking not only knowledge but application of the knowledge we acquire.

With all the blood, sweat and tears I’ve put in to the first 40 days of my “Productivity Challenge” I started to think.  I have worked relentlessly on getting my mind right, figuring out and connecting with my highest purpose (which was no easy task), creating a perfect vision for the life I desire to create and a detailed navigation plan for achieving it.  Now what?

As I was moving through the process of each of these tasks, I realized that this process was not new to me.  I had completed these items before, most recently in 2009.  I was surprised to find that I had achieved some of my desired goals and was well on my way to achieving others.  I was also surprised to see how little my aspirations have changed.  So why am I not further along in the achievement of some of my major goals?  Then it hit me!

I remembered a study I completed of a work called “The New Psycho Cybernetics” by Dr. Maxwell Maltz and Dan S. Kennedy.  In that study they taught about a concept called your “Servo Mechanism.”  The idea is that our brains have the ability and will automatically create our deepest desires (whether they be positive or negative) through what they call our “automatic success mechanism” or our “automatic failure mechanism” depending on how we program it.

Basically what we focus our thoughts on is what our lives will manifest!

So if we buy in to this concept then it makes sense!

The reason I am not further along with my goals is I have not been programming my automatic success mechanism to GO FOR IT! 

I completed my purpose and vision statements and even my detailed navigational plan and goals and promptly put them away.  OUCH!  That was my mistake!  So there is the lesson and here is the course correction:

From this day on, I will read through my purpose, vision, goals and plan every day.  (Maybe even twice!)  I will keep them in front of me at my desk and carry them with me wherever I go. In so doing, I will place my intentions clearly into my Servo Mechanism which will automatically and unconsciously pursue their achievement with laser focus.

It is true, a mind is a terrible thing to waste!

Pulling It Off!

Image

No MediocrityHave you ever reflected on what your life looks like the day before you leave on a vacation? I bet you were highly productive! You got everything done didn’t you? You even watered your house plants!

It seems we can always pull it off when we have to. Have you noticed? How do we do it?

Well I don’t know how you do it but this is how I do it:

1.  I make a list of everything I want to accomplish in the order of its importance.

2.  I get up early the next day and I hit it hard!

3.  I limit all distractions and I stay on it no matter how long it takes!

A few years ago as I was reflecting on my “day before vacation”  I decided to live each day like I was leaving for Maui tomorrow and guess what?  My increased productivity has gotten me more trips to Maui!  I know it can do the same for you!  I hope you try it and I hope it does!
