Make Your Dreams Come True

You Are Never Too Old or Too Young for This!

Have you ever met a “Know It All”?! You know, one of those people that thinks they know everything….but they really don’t! Know It All people, unfortunately miss out on a lot because they think they already know “it” and won’t consider the other possibilities or the fact that the “it” they know isn’t the “it” that works in every situation!

A better way to go through life is with a “Teachable Spirit”! One that is ready & willing to learn new and different ways and ideas for accomplishing their dreams and goals.

Do YOU have a “Teachable Spirit”? That is, a mindset & attitude that embraces learning from others….allowing yourself to be the humble student and willing to take instruction from…..a boss…a mentor, a well-meaning friend, your parents…….your spouse? From God?

 It took me a long time to develop a teachable spirit…..sometimes I still struggle with it, but the older I get the more I realize that there are lessons to be learned in a multitude of ways and from many different people……some that you would never expect!

Sometimes, we DO know “it”….but we need to remain open & teachable so that we can learn new ways or different ways…..or maybe just the way someone wants a particular thing done!
The MOST SUCCESSFUL people in the world NEVER stop learning!

Do you have a “Teachable Spirit”? Are you eager to learn new things? New ways? Stay excited about learning……it is one of the KEYS to making your DREAMS a REALITY!

And remember……. You are never too old or too young to learn or to teach!

Make this YOUR year to SPARKLE & SHINE!

Positive RE-Programming

Fear of failure

Do the thoughts you have of yourself reflect the reality you want to create for yourself?
As you think about where you are and where you want to be, I’d like to suggest that you think about how your thoughts and words are lining up with who you desire to be and what you desire to achieve. Does it all line up or do you have some re-programming to do?
How do you RE-Program your brain? By changing what you think and say!

Becoming AWARE is the very 1st step! Then, creating the HABIT of programming POSITIVE things into your mind and your mouth!

I’d love for you to take a few minutes and listen in as I share much more on how important this is and how you can change your words to re-program yourself for SUCCESS!

When you make the decision to make and take time to invest in yourself and to re-program your brain, you will be surprised how quickly you will begin to see your dreams and goals come to pass….in every area!

All Aboard! Where is Your Train Headed

Fear of failure

Have you ever gotten on the wrong train or bus or airplane or road? I have! It’s not a good feeling to find out that you are not headed toward the destination you thought you were! Not only that, it’s a waste of time and it’s frustrating! Especially if you have to go miles and miles out of your way before you can correct your course!
 
Did you know that your thoughts are like a train sitting in the station waiting to go somewhere? Your WORDS are what give that train power! A THOUGHT remains a thought -without much result- until you use your WORDS to power it up, and in turn your thoughts, powered with your words will cause ACTION!
 
Where is your train headed? Are you on the right train? Are you using the right WORDS to power up your train?
 
If you are not seeing the results you desire in your life, relationships, finances, dreams & goals, then maybe it’s time to get your train turned around!

Does Your Mouth Know

Does Your Mouth Know?!

Fear of failure

Did you know that every time you speak and every time you hear words spoken that your BRAIN is LISTENING?! Not only is your brain listening, it is being programmed with those very WORDS! Isn’t that AMAZING!

If you are wondering why it seems you take 2 steps forward and 3 steps back, you need to check out the WORDS that are going into your brain!

If you’re wondering why you haven’t been able to reach your goals and dreams, you need to check what’s being programmed into your brain!

If you’re experiencing a lack of peace, a lack of motivation, a lack of self-confidence, if you’re feeling sad, lonely, anxious, irritable or angry, you need to take a serious look at what you are allowing into your ears (and eyes), through people, music, TV, movies, radio & self-talk, and make some changes!
Your brain is like a computer and every time you speak (and watch) something you are programming it. Your brain BELIEVES and eventually causes you to ACT on whatever you say…..whatever you are programming into it!

Proverbs 18:21 says, “Words kill, Words give life; They’re either poison or fruit – you choose.”
WOW! That’s pretty clear, isn’t it?!

There’s also scientific proof to back this up! Neuroscience has made leaps and bounds in the study of the effect of words and thoughts on the brain.

Neuroplasticity describes how the brain reinvents itself over and over again. Older pathways are replaced with new ones. What we say and focus on repeatedly actually creates new pathways (rewires) in your brain…..good or bad! Repetition causes deeper pathways to form. This is why it is so important to pay attention to what you say over and over again.

The WORDS you speak and listen to have an immediate, direct effect on your brain, causing an emotional response, making your brain respond in specific ways according to what it hears (and sees).

This is true whether you are speaking the words out loud, thinking them to yourself or listening to someone else’s words.

With that in mind (no pun intended), Think about what it is that you are:

  1. Saying Out Loud – about yourself, about others, about situations
  2. Saying Silently – that INNER voice that keeps going like a broken record inside your head
  3. Listening to – negative people; violent, drama filled TV; sad, hopeless, tragedy riddled music; fear and hype filled news

What are you programming into your brain?  Do you see the connection between what you SAY and where you are in life? Are you where you want to be? Are you happy, at peace, confident, fulfilled, seeing your dreams and goals achieved?
If not, and you truly want to see a change, you can start RIGHT NOW by simply changing the WORDS you are using to program your brain!

I QUIT!!! What To Do When You Feel Like Quitting

Have you EVER felt like QUITTING on your dreams? I have! Many times!

Have you ever said those words, “I QUIT?!” I actually can’t recall saying them out loud more than a few times, but I sure have thought about saying them many more times!

It’s easy to get to that place when you experience delays, discouragement, frustrations, resistance and (perceived) failure! You begin to question whether or not your dreams are worth pursuing OR if you’re even on the right track. Right?!

Well, you are NOT alone! In fact, you’re in very good company! Walt Disney, Michael Jordan, Milton Hershey, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison, Jack Canfield, (Chicken Soup for the Soul) Colonel Sanders, S. Truett Cathy (Chik Fil A), R.H.Macy and SO many more famous people have endured delays, discouragements, frustrations, resistance and failures. In fact, pretty much ANYONE who has accomplished ANYTHING of significance has experienced some or all of those things and have felt like QUITTING! There is just no way around it!

Doesn’t that make you feel better?!

The BIG difference between those who end up making their dreams come true and those who don’t is that four letter word QUIT! If you don’t QUIT, eventually you will see your dreams come true!
How do I know that for sure? Well, aside from all the “famous” people I’ve read about who have failed forward to success, I myself have seen many of my dreams come to pass. Sure, I’ve faced delays, discouragements, frustrations and resistance, everyone does, BUT I DON’T QUIT! I may change course, I may adjust the plans…multiple times, I may change my mind for good reason….

But……. I DON’T QUIT! And I encourage you NOT TO QUIT!
 
 
 Which 5 things are YOU going to do first?! What things would you add to this list?!
 

  1. SEE It! Take the time to refresh the VISION of your dreams. Update your Dream Board. Spend time imagining how it will feel when you accomplish your dreams. Whatever it is that you need to do to awaken those dreams again….. DO IT! SEE IT!   
    “Without a vision, the people perish.” ~ Proverbs 29:18
     
  2. SPEAK It! Take a look at the words you are speaking! Are they words that are bringing LIFE to you and your dreams or are they bringing DEATH? You must SPEAK about your dreams AS IF they have already happened! It feels funny at first, but you will see the results very quickly! Try it for 30 days-You’ll see!
    “Death and Life are in the power of the tongue!” ~ Proverbs 18:21  
     
  3. STAY Thankful! Do NOT start grumbling, complaining or whining! The fastest way to delay your dreams is to start doubting and in turn become ungrateful! Thankfulness will open doors that would otherwise be impenetrable!
    “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”  ~ Philippians 4:6
     
  4. STEADY Diet! Keep yourself FILLED UP with a steady diet of encouragement, hope & inspiration. Listen to CDs, read positive stories of people who have pursued their dreams and overcome obstacles to make their dreams come true. Intentionally eliminate negativity -in every form- from your life and get in the habit of filling up with positive things!
    “Keep your minds on whatever is true, pure, right, holy, friendly, and proper. Don’t ever stop thinking about what is truly worthwhile and worthy of praise.” ~ Philippians 4:8 
  1. SOW Seed! I so totally believe that whatever you sow, you will reap! The Law of Seedtime and Harvest is a universal and biblical law. It works! It works every time! When you sow into the lives of others, you will reap the rewards of doing so. So, help someone else make their dreams come true!     On top of that, I sow financially into God’s Kingdom. You will NEVER out give God! And the Law of Seedtime & Harvest ALWAYS works! Zig Ziglar said, "You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want." He certainly proved that right!    
     “The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed; those who help others are helped.”
    ~ Proverbs 11:25

 
I want to encourage you today to implement the tips above and get back on the track to your dreams! You are worth it!

Make this YOUR year to SPARKLE & SHINE!

I BELIEVE in YOU!
