[VIDEO] Dreams – Can They Really Come True?

Dreams – Can You Make Them Your Reality?

 

In this post I want to talk to you about dreams. Have you let go of your dreams? Have your dreams really come true? Have you moved into them or have you put them on the back burner?

These are all the questions we are going to discuss today.

We’re going to also talk about whether you have accomplished everything you set out to do?

When you were a little kid and you wanted to be a firefighter or a doctor, did you accomplish that, whatever it is? Well, I want to talk to you a little bit about dreams, and what I have found is that a lot of people let go of their dreams.

 

 

 

You Can Accomplish Your Dreams

 

I think that the ability to accomplish whatever it is we set out to do has a lot to do with our environment, a lot to do with the kind of encouragement that we either did or didn’t get growing up, and I was scrolling through my Facebook news feed yesterday, and a friend of mine, Leah, she’s actually in Paris I think right now, somewhere in France, I met her a few years ago. She’s a fabulous young lady, and she recommended this question or this book, and I’m sorry I don’t remember the name of the person that she was referring to, but I will tell you that I did write down the questions and it really caused me to stop and ask these questions for myself. They can be very powerful, so I’m going to actually ask you them.

dreamsIf you were on your deathbed, and you had to answer these three questions. Imagine you’re at the end of your life, you’re at the very end of your life, okay? And these are the questions that you ask yourself. And I really want you to get into this, because the ability to answer these questions honestly is the ability to really take a look at what are you doing, and that you are on track, okay?

 

 

 

 

So what did you love? You’re on your deathbed, and you have the chance to answer these questions. The first one is what did you love? What did you love?

The second question is do you have any regrets? Do you have any regrets?

And then the third question is, if you were given one more chance at living, what would you do?

Now, spending your time sitting in these questions can really force you to say to yourself, “Am I living the way that I want to live?”

Am I living the way that I want to live? Am I following through with what I intended to do in my life?

So again, let me recap these questions real quick. What did you love? Do you have any regrets? If you were given one more chance at living, what would you do?

Now, answer them honestly and sit in them and feel this. You’re at your deathbed and you have to answer these questions.

What does it feel like? If you can examine yourself and really be truthful and honest, and take the time to do this, it really, really can be powerful. So I hope that you do take the time, feel free, and if you did accomplish your dream, more power to you.

 

dreams

 

Yay, I’m so happy for you!

But if you’re not exactly on track, spending time in this might give you a little bit of redirection, and getting that redirection, and getting the confidence to follow through with that, I think that’s fabulous.

So if you want any help with that, or if you want to discuss how do you accomplish your dreams, send me a message. I have a way, and I can help you.

Thank you so much for coming over to my blog today. Feel free to share this post and  feel free to subscribe by opting in to my freebie in the sidebar and remember to starting living your dreams!

You are awesome. You are amazing. You are beautiful. I know that, and I want you to know that about you too!

[VIDEO] Mindset Shift for Children

Mindset shift for children – 30 day challenge

 

mindset shift for childrenMindset shift for children, this is day two. And I’m going to do a questionnaire and the kids know that I’m recording them, but they don’t know what I’m going to ask them. So we’ve been discussing mindset shift and how to do goal setting and how to, and how and why this program works, and no matter what age you are.

So we’ve decided to do this 30 day challenge, the 30 day game for these guys. They’re keeping track of it. We bought notebooks today. But I want to explain a little bit of the words I used in order to help them understand this. Some of the words that I used. We talked about the subconscious and the conscious mind, and I related the subconscious mind to soil, like just land.

But I put it in a plant, and I drew it on the board, and I showed them how if their subconscious mind was like the soil, completely ready for planting in a potted plant, how whatever seed that the conscious mind puts into it, whatever seed is planted in a potted plant, it grows.

So they understand, I hope they understand that that’s … Oh, maybe I should hold the camera like this. I hope they understand that that’s why this program works. Because paying attention to whatever seed is planted in a land, you know the soil doesn’t care what you plant in there. It will grow.

 

 

 

Kids questionnaire

 

Dianna: If you plant seeds in your mind, what will it grow?

Amrin: It will grow whatever you plant.

Dianna: Right. So what could it be?

Amrin: Nightshade, but don’t plant nightshade.

Dianna: Nightshade is …

Amrin: Poison.

Dianna: Poison. So we don’t.

Amrin: Poison is bad.

Dianna: Right. So if we plant something like nightshade in the pot, it will grow. Just like if we plant poison or negative thoughts in our … in our what?

Amrin: Mind.

Dianna: In our mind. Right. So we don’t want to plant negative things in our mind, right? Is that right?

Amrin: Mm-hmm (affirmative)-

Dianna: I think I’m gonna turn around so you can stop playing with yourself. So. What have you, what do you think, what are you doing right now? What’s your goal right now? What are you doing in your notebook?

Amrin: I had to look at my notes.

Dianna: No, you’re not looking at your notes. What did you spend time today doing?

Amrin: Oh, writing my wants list.

Dianna: Your want list. Okay.

Amrin: Soon it’s going to turn into a goals list and I can only have one goal.

Dianna: Why are we working on one goal at a time? Well let’s switch to Aveya. Hold one. We’re going to switch to Aveya. Okay Aveya, so you have your own want list, right? And then, what are you going to do with that?

Ah’Vaiah: I’m gonna turn my want list into. I’m gonna take one and I’m gonna turn it into one goal.

Dianna: One goal. Okay. So what are we going to do with that goal?

Ah’Vaiah: We’re gonna look at it every day and every night. And we’re gonna imagine it. And we’re gonna read over it a bunch of times. And when we do that, we’ll get what we want.

Dianna: Do you know, do you remember why that works? I know you’ve only had two lessons, but can you tell me why the, like you said, going over it all the time, why it works?

Ah’Vaiah: Because whatever you plant in your subconscious mind goes to your conscious mind.

Dianna: Oh, you got it backwards again.

Ah’Vaiah: I can’t do that. So the conscious mind.

Dianna: What did you just say? You said I can’t do that.

Ah’Vaiah: I can.

Dianna: I can do that. So.

Amrin: You can do it. You can do it.

Dianna: You can do it. You can do it. So. Whatever you plant in your conscious mind, goes into.

Ah’Vaiah: Your subconscious mind.

Dianna: Do you know a good way to remember this? Isn’t, aren’t there some planters that are sub-terraneums? You ever hear of those? Where it’s under. So think, just think of it that way. Sub is under. So we gotta get our thoughts from our conscious into our subconscious. Think of it that way. Or a submarine. Where does a submarine go?

Ah’Vaiah: Under water.

Dianna: Underwater. So if we want to get our thoughts in, where do we put them?

Ah’Vaiah: We put them in our subconscious?

Dianna: Yeah, very good. You put them in your subconscious. Excellent. So do you know why this works? Can you tell me why this works?

Ah’Vaiah: Because whatever you put in your conscious mind, it goes down to the subconscious mind, then it plants there and grows in your conscious.

Dianna: It grows. Exactly. You are able to form

Ah’Vaiah: Form.

Dianna: Do you remember?

Ah’Vaiah: Form a plant?

Dianna: Form a plant. Not quite. We’re able to form new habits. Right? Because the more you think about it, what happens?

Ah’Vaiah: It grows.

Dianna: It grows. So that means you do it more. So last question. And I know this has been a little hard, and I really appreciate this. Tell me why these new habits and these goals, should they be positive or negative words?

Ah’Vaiah: Positive.

Dianna: Positive. Because, every seed we plant

Ah’Vaiah: Grows.

Dianna: Exactly. So if you want good seeds, if you want good thoughts, if you want good actions to grow, you’ve got to plant good words. Is that right?

Ah’Vaiah: Mm-hmm (affirmative)-

Dianna: Are you excited?

Ah’Vaiah: Yeah.

Dianna: I’m excited, too. Alright, so, say sayonara.

Amrin: Sayonara.

Dianna: Say goodnight.

Ah’Vaiah: Goodnight.

Thank you for tuning in. We’ll keep you posted and also think about doing something fun like this for your kids to encourage them to have mindset shifts too!

and remember:

You are awesome. You are amazing. You are beautiful. I know that, and I want you to know that about you too!

[VIDEO] What are Affirmations

What are affirmations and do they work?

 

Will they work for you, and how do they work, and what if you only wanted a new car?

What if that’s all you wanted was a new car? I’m here to tell you that I would like to let you know that there is a reason, a scientific reason that affirmations work. I’m not going to get into the science of it because I don’t need the science to understand it and I don’t think everybody does, but I will promise you that when you do affirmations they will work for you and I’m going to tell you how minus the science stuff, okay?

No science here. Listen to my video below as I explain more…

 

 

 

But this is what affirmations are.

 

Affirmations are simply a repeated statement to yourself and they work best if you look in the mirror when you say them, but they’re a statement of something that you may want to accomplish. We’re going to use the car as an instance.

Say you want a new car and an affirmation for a new car is I’m so happy and grateful now that I have my Lexus 300 whatever, I don’t know the names. I should’ve figured that out, or my Honda Odyssey 2017. My brand new 2017 Honda Odyssey.

Now, saying that in the present tense, how this works is that when you say it in the present tense, it allows you to start planting that in your head, okay? Even if it’s not true right away, what happens is your subconscious mind does not know the truth from a lie. It just doesn’t know it, so when you’re planting these seeds of your future truth, if you will, then you will have the ability to, I’m sorry, let me just share this real quick.

You’ll have the ability to really plant these seeds and foster these thoughts. These thoughts will then start to permeate your mind.

When you have these thoughts of the new car, even if it’s not true yet, what will happen is as you’re talking and as these thoughts start, as you’re saying it especially to yourself in the mirror, that’s the best way but you don’t have to have a mirror. But when you’re saying these things any time of day, the more you see it, it will be good to have cards of whatever your affirmation is and say them repeatedly. That plants those seeds. It waters the seeds. It provides fertilization for the seeds.

That seed then gets planted in your subconscious and then what happens is every single time you say that affirmation, when an opportunity comes about you will notice that it’s an opportunity whereas it’s kind of like your eyes are open to something that you may have not have noticed before, you know?

 

what are affirmations

 

Example of how Affirmations can work

 

Yesterday, I will use this as an example. I have long envisioned myself as a speaker on a stage an I’ve spoken at some events. I realized that I wanted to up-level that so I started to do a bit more affirmation from the speaking point of view.

Yesterday, there was inside this very large group, there was a comment made or a post made about this event, and as I looked at it and I noticed that the speakers were not set yet, fully set, it occurred to me because of these affirmations that I had been repeating, that maybe I should reach out and maybe I should see about increasing my visibility by asking if she needs speakers.

Now, here’s what that affirmation worked with that, because having an affirmation that is continually in the forefront of your brain helps you see windows of opportunity that may have not existed before but were probably already there that you didn’t see, I should say. You didn’t see the opportunity there before, but because it’s on your brain, these things happen more and you see them more actually. You just see them more.

When something like that happens and you say, okay, now you’re going to take the action that will help make these affirmations come true. Do you see how this works? So the affirmations are repeated statements of something that you want to accomplish.

It can be a goal. It can be just anything. Like I said, a car. I’m so happy and grateful now that I have a 2017 Honda Odyssey brand new sitting in my driveway. It’s red. It’s got leather seats, and you can envision that.

But what will happen is repeating that all the time, you will notice things that will come up that you may not, that you just didn’t see before. That’s how the affirmations work and they can be used for anything. These repeated statements, they simply put it in your mind and they prompt you to take action.

If you need more money to buy a car, then more opportunities to make money will come up and you’ll recognize them as opportunities to make money to put down towards your car. Do you see that? It’s really quite simply, phenomenal and just it really works.

 

what are affirmations

 

Affirmations can give us Confidence!

 

So, I was going through my course, my confidence course and I did it from start to finish. It’s only 30 minutes in total except for when you stop to do the homework. I have to tell you I’m very, very thrilled with it. I’m very proud of it. It’s 30 minutes long and it’s great. It’s a great course. I’ve got some cleaning up to do on it a little bit but part of that is we do include affirmations in this, and affirmations to increase self-confidence.

That’s how powerful that they are. I know that they work and again, they simply drive home to you what you need to be paying attention to and it helps you take action to make those things come true. That’s how they work. So whatever it is that you want.

If you want more information, let me know. Comment below if you have any questions about affirmation work. I’d love to help you.

I’m very excited and pleased about my Confidence Course and soon it will be getting released it to the public.

Thank you so much for reading this post and I hope you have learned more about what affirmations are and how affirmations work. Comment below if you’ve used them before, if you know how to use them and if you’ve had some results. I’d love to hear about it and even share some powerful affirmations you have written too!

You are awesome. You are amazing. You are beautiful. I know that, and I want you to know that about you too!

[VIDEO] Do You Have Decision Freedom?

Do you have decision freedom?

 

Do you know what decision freedom is? Decision freedom is the ability to make any decision you want no matter what area of life you’re talking about. Whether it’s to take a vacation, whether it’s to take a day off from work, whether it’s to home school your children, that is decision freedom, my friends.

I was really compelled to write this post to talk about what it’s like to have this decision freedom and how do you get there. What does a person do in their life to have decision freedom. I want to just share with you a couple of things that I’ve learned about how I’ve managed to get there and I’m not fully there yet.

I’m not sure, I do know this, that the ability to make the decisions that I want to really actually come from within and that matter what area of life you’re talking about, to be able to have decision freedom, starts from with inside of you where you just make that split second decision of yes, I’m going to do this, not matter what this is.

If you decide that you want to take a trip to Italy because you’ve always wanted to go to Italy, that decision happens as soon as you decide. If it’s your gut instinct that you’ve got to go to Italy, you need to make that decision.

And then, here’s what happens, when you make that decision, everything falls into place. It’s really remarkable. Did you know that you’re one decision away from a whole new life? You’re one decision away from a new job, you’re one decision away from a relationship or whether you’re going to stay in a relationship or whether you’re going to leave the relationship.

I mean, all of your life changes are based on all these decisions.

And so, how you get to decision freedom, the ability to do anything you want in your life, boils down to how you handle all of these other decisions. These decisions whether you want to go to the gym and get in better shape, make that decision and do it.

Whether you want to write a book and publish it and just do it. Whether you want to make your marriage better by having date nights, all of these things are decisions that happen, that are daily. Every single day, you make daily decisions and they end up leading you, when you’re ready for it, to decision freedom.

I invite you to watch my following video where I explain how having decision freedom can really impact your life!

 

 

 

So how do you get to having decision freedom?

 

You simply, and I say simply, it’s simple, but it’s not easy just like so many things in life, simple, but not easy. When it comes time to make a decision, you really have to do think about, “Okay, exactly what do I want to do with this? What do I want to do with this relationship? What do I want to do with this job? What do I want to do with this family member who keeps dragging me down?”

Whatever that is, or “This child who’s having trouble in school and I can’t seem to get them to want to listen to the teacher,” you know, what can I do about that? All these things, every single day you’re faced with so many decisions and it’s those decisions that really carve out your life and who you are and how you handle it.

Soon, what I hope that means for you is that all those decisions that are daily, that are simple to make, but hard to make, if that makes any kind of sense, you have to do it, you have to decide. Let me backtrack a little bit, the longer a person waits to make a decision about something, the harder it becomes.

decision freedomIf you are waffling on making a decision, that actually means that you probably know the answer, but you’re not comfortable with that the decision is going to be. If that’s going on, that’s actually when you know you’re on the right track because if you’re facing a big decision and you’re feeling a little uncomfortable with it, that probably means you’re facing what’s known as the terror barrier.

When you face up with that terror barrier, most often, people will kind of backtrack and say, “I can’t go that route. That’s a decision that I can’t make. Now I don’t know if I can follow through with that.” That means you’re kind of afraid, but I will tell you, that if you’re facing a decision that makes you afraid and you understand that that decision or that terror barrier is coming up against you and that’s why you’re waffling, then that means that you’re probably on the right track, you can understand what’s happening, and you can just push through that terror barrier and then freedom stands on the other side of that.

Your freedom is on the other side of that wall.

All of these decisions then, will eventually lead you to, and it may happen you know next month, next year, three years, whatever, but soon when you build up the understanding of what’s going on every time it comes to making the decision, then you can get to the other side and you can have decision freedom because you understand what’s making you afraid, and you understand that you can plow through it and you’re fine.

So thank you so much for reading this post and I want to encourage all of you to think about this, do I have decision freedom, am I able to decide to do anything that I want to do? And if you don’t, please consider that every single decision you make, can and will lead you there.

 

Go towards decision freedom, it’s where everything awesome is!

 

If you have friends or family that need to have decision freedom in their life too, then please go ahead and share this post and also leave a comment and tell me your thoughts.

and remember….

You are awesome. You are amazing. You are beautiful. I know that, and I want you to know that about you too!

[VIDEO] 10 Affirmations That Could Change Your Life

Affirmations and bringing positivity in your life

 

In this post I’d love to discuss affirmations!

Affirmations are something you can complete morning and night, you can write your own or even use some of the ones I’m going to include in this post.

If something negative in your life happens, take your list of affirmations, wherever you have them, and just re-read these affirmations, close your eyes if you need to, to really get emotionally involved. Affirmations are powerful statements that can take you to a place of strength, positivity and what can be possible.

Either click to watch the follow video or read on…

 

 

 

Affirmations and why they work

 

Now, I’m going to talk about why reading through your list of affirmations work. The reason that this type of work works with you or on you, for you, is because every time somebody … All of our results are based on our actions, and our actions are driven by our feelings, and our feelings are driven by our thoughts. The only way to make long lasting change is to be able to change the thoughts, and then, therefore, create new feelings, or change the feelings that we have about certain thoughts. Okay, did that sound a little crazy?

Let me give you an example:

Say, for example, somebody said to you something like, “I really don’t like that dress you’re wearing,” and you weren’t wearing a dress. Would that impact you? Probably not. The reason is because it didn’t make any sense, so in your brain, your processing part of it says, “Well, I’m not wearing a dress, so that doesn’t impact me.” Therefore, no feelings would have come into play. Therefore, you would not have been hurt by something that somebody said, when you knew it wasn’t true.

When you’re trying to change the thought pattern that you have or the feelings that you have about what people say to you, you’ve gotta kinda pay really close attention to allowing these thoughts to create the feelings that you have. If somebody says to you, “I really don’t like that dress you’re wearing,” or, “I can’t believe you wore that dress,” and you do have a dress on, there’s kind of an automatic, “Oh, well, gosh,” and then your feelings get involved, and then they might get hurt because you allowed that thought to penetrate your mind.

Then, your feelings get hurt, and then again, it drives your action, and it drives your results. Time after time, if you allow these things to come in like that, that’s how you end up with low self esteem or low self confidence. If enough of those feelings and actions have happened, that is the result.

 

affirmations

 

The reason why these affirmations work and the ability to start believing in yourself, is because as you are doing this work, you’re … Trust me, you’re going to need to do this daily, and you’re going to need to do this routinely, and you’re going to need to do this, revisit this, and make sure that your affirmations are in line with what you want and where you want to go, in alignment with your truth.

You’ve gotta go back, and you’ve gotta say, “All right, I am worthy.” The more you say it, the more you start to believe it. Therefore, your thoughts change your feelings, and that belief system is what gets you really feeling it. It really bolsters you. That’s why you’ve gotta do it.

I’m gonna introduce to you … I just want you to and that this type of work does work when you do the work. It only takes a few minutes every morning, every night, and every time you need it, but just start to bolster your own belief system, so that you can protect yourself, so that you can only allow yourself to be emotionally involved in feelings that are true, which is you are awesome; you are amazing; and you are beautiful; and you are worthy, you are truthful; you are, all that, whatever your affirmations are.

By only allowing the truth to come in, that’s when your self confidence really, really starts to bolster. By doing this work, that’s exactly how it works.

 

10 Affirmations that could change your life!

 

By allowing myself to be happy, I inspire others around me to radiate happiness and positivit

My heart if overflowing with love, abundance and joy

I find happiness in the simple things and am grateful for everything in my life

I am strong and courageous and full of confidence

I am content with my life even as I work harder towards success

I love meeting new people and approach them with boldness and enthusiasm

I find solutions to challenges easily and embrace adversity as a time to learn and grow

My personality exudes confidence. I am bold, brave and outgoing

I surround myself with positive people and only attract like-minded people

I have integrity. I am totally reliable and self responsible for my own actions

 

Affirmations and Mirror Work

 

This last piece that we’re gonna go through is what’s called mirror work. I want to explain why this works. Mirror work was, I believe, invented by Louise Hayes, Louisa Hayes, and feel free to Google her, but her work was pretty phenomenal and mind blowing in a lot of ways. What it does is … She just does … I can’t believe I don’t have one. She takes a mirror, and she just talks to herself.

Now, that work is perfectly fine. You can do that, if you like to do that, but another way that you can do mirror work is just look, look into the mirror, I’m trying to figure out which … Look into the mirror, and speak these things, speak these awesome words in one eye, and then look at the other eye, and say these words to yourself: I am worthy; I am loved; I am awesome; I am amazing; I am beautiful; I am fit; I am fabulous; I am freaking awesome.

Then do it again. Do it for about five times, each eye, and in time, and it does take time, but in time, you’ll start to believe it and know it, ’cause truth is easy to believe when it is truth, and those are all truths.

That’s our mirror work. Again, I just want you to know, if you don’t have enough oomph or confidence to believe any of these words, do not worry. It will come with time. Please know that I believe it of you, even if you don’t right now. Take my belief and know that I feel that way about you. I know that you are awesome, and you are amazing, and you are beautiful. I really do.

Oh, last thing, ah! Do this mirror work for at least 30 day and watch what happens in your life. Watch what happens when you have this massive confidence and when you have this self confidence.

 

affirmations

 

Watch how you treat people differently, how they treat you, and watch the difference in your whole life because this new thinking and this new feeling about yourself causes new actions, and it’s gonna create bigger results.

Remember to share this post if you loved it and remember:

You are awesome. You are amazing. You are beautiful. I know that, and I want you to know that about you too!

[VIDEO] Is This as Good as it Gets?

Is your life as good as it gets?

So listen, the title of this post is “Is This As Good As It Gets?”

You know, or the other question, what if? Oh my gosh, what if it is? Would you be okay right now?

Would you be okay if something happened, God forbid, and you had to be … nothing could change? Are you missing out on something because you worried too much about security or you’re worried.

Well, you know what, I believe in dreams, I believe in hope, I believe in love, I believe in living life to the fullest, and I also believe in becoming the absolute best that you can.

Listen in to my video below where I explain more…

 

 

Do you have the power to change?

So is this as good as it gets, I wanted people to … I want you to kind of sit in that for a second and say, is it? And this happened to me a few years ago, separated from my husband, and you know what, I thought he was the love of my life. Well, he was the love of my life. I thought it was going to last forever. I thought that … I mean, we had big dreams, we had big plans.

We moved far away and then it all crumbled. I thought to myself, “Wow. Is this it? Is this where I’m at? I’m in my 50’s, and no husband, and I’ve got my bonus baby at home, two additional children because we have grandchildren, and a cat and a dog, and this is it? I’m alone? Is this as good as it gets?”

That was kind of a hard pill to swallow for a little while because I was like it took me a bit. I woke up, and I said, “You know what? This is not as good as it gets. I have complete control over everything that happens in my life.” I such remember that. I knew that when … but when I think sometimes when we’re going through an emotional trauma because that’s what it is.

Divorce and separation is an emotional trauma when you’re going through something like that, it’s really kind of hard to see outside of you, right?

But when you can get back to focus, and get back to yourself, and you say, “I am not going to let what happened to me be my story. I refuse to let what happened to me be my story. So I need to make sure that I don’t ever ask the question …” This is what you’re saying to you, right? Anybody’s who’s been through trauma … “I’ve got to make sure that if I’m going to answer that question, is this as good as it gets, then I want that answer to be yes, and I’m perfectly good with that. I’m happy with this. I made this. I created all of this.”

 

as good as it gets

 

Then the other scenario is what if? Get to the end of your life and you say, “But what if?” You know, I was writing with a friend the other couple weeks ago, and I said, “Well, are you happy?” And he said, “Well, yeah.” I said, “Are you happy with what you’re doing?” He said, “I am.”

I said, “Well that’s great, as long as you don’t meet the person that you could have been on your deathbed.” He was like, “Whoa.” But that is the point. Examine where you are. If you have these questions for yourself, is this as good as it gets, that answer should be yes, yeah I did it, I made that happen, whatever it is for you. I just want to encourage you to completely live in your truth, your purpose, your life, whatever that means for you.

The question of what if, please do not let that answer or that question throw you off. If it does, I really, really want to encourage you to say to yourself, “If I’m answering the question, what if? What if I did that? What if I took that trip to Greece that my friends went on and asked me to go, and I said I couldn’t go because I didn’t think that I had the money to go? Or what if I do not take my children on a … go on the field trip with them?”

Whatever, anything, could be small, could be big, but every once in a while, ask yourself the question, is this as good as it gets. Make sure you’re happy with that answer, and then certainly do not live in the idea that what if. What if I would have done that? That’s just sad. Sorry, it’s sad, and I don’t want you to be sad. I want you to realize that you are in control of every single thing that happens in your life.

You know, one of the most common misconceptions I think of humankind is that they believe that it’s their environment and their circumstance that makes them who they are, what they are. When in fact, every single person has within them the ability to make changes and to get beyond anything that might have been put in front of them or that they might have been born into. That’s just a fact.

We are all born with the same stuff. If we are born into different circumstances, well you know, you still have the ability … it may be a little harder … but you have the ability to see that goodness inside of you and to recognize that you are in control of everything you do in your life.

It’s something we as parents try to teach our children, right? So we want to … I just want to encourage you to spend some time, ask yourself those questions, and if the answers … if you do not like the answers, then maybe it’s time to take a listen to … not take a listen, take a look at why, evaluate why for yourself. Why do you not like the answer is this as good as it gets. If the answer is oh my gosh, I do not want this to be … Take control. Take control.

I will tell you that here I am on a Friday night. That is a part of me that kind of says, “All right, so here I am on a Friday night, doing a live video about personal development and professional development.” It’s like hmm. But you know what, there’s no place I’d rather be. I would so much rather be doing this and helping to spread the message about how good you can have it or what you could be doing with yourself or for yourself, than probably anything in the world, next to my family, of course.

So I felt sorry for myself for a hot minute, and then I was like, “All right, no. I can’t feel sorry for myself. I like what I do. I love what I do.” And again, I was just passing time.

So listen, please know that you have the power within you to make any change that you want to change.

You can do anything in this world that you want to, and I mean that. It took me a long time, a long time to learn that we have such magnificent control if we understand our mind. If you have any questions for me, send me a message using the contact form or just comment below. Ask me a question. I’d be happy to answer.

I just want you to be good in thought and spirit and mind and all that so go ahead and make your life as good as it gets!
