Choice Matters Most

Choice matters most because choice means freedom.             choosefreedom0a0a28heart29-default

Choice matters most because without it, you wouldn’t have options.Choice matters most because it means you have creative control over certain things in your life.     

Choice matters most because it holds you accountable for your life. If you are the one choosing, it’s up to you, right?

Choice matters most because without it, all the other stuff wouldn’t matter that much.

Without choice we are prisoners, victims, puppets. We are without hope, vision or dreams.

Without choice there is no vanilla or chocolate, no play it safe or go big, no decaf or regular, no love or hate. 

Even in the most horrible, dire situations, you have a choice in how you feel, how you react and what you choose to believe.

How you  feel is a choice and also the most important thing to master, if you want to learn how to get what you want in life.  

Choice may not be the sexiest, most alluring topic….. at least on the surface. But when you really take a minute to think about what choice means, really means to you—it is sexy. It is alluring. It is super cool. It is powerful. It is a massive gift that is often taken for granted.

Choice is the very thing that makes your life meaningful or miserable. It has equal power to be destructive as it does to be constructive.

You choose health. You choose wealth. You choose happiness, growth and success. You can also choose the negative stuff too. 

Learning how to master our choices is about learning to be aware, conscious and alive. Learning how to use the gift of choice to consciously direct the flow of our lives is what manifesting is all about. Being a conscious chooser is the beginning stage of learning to manifest (getting what we desire through the energy we put out into the world).

I LOVE the fact that we have choices, but many of us just don’t see it as the incredible gift and powerful tool that it is. How many people do you know who continue making the same bad choices over and over again? Or those who seem to make great choices in certain areas of their lives, but not so much in others.  Or those who seem to go around and around with their choices and never seem to have clarity. 

If you want something that isn’t coming to you, it’s as simple (maybe not always easy) as shifting the choices you are making . . . right down to the choice in how you feel, what you think and how you react.

Having the abundance and success you desire is about making aligned choices with those desires. Having the health and body you want is about making those same choices (and it’s not just about exercise and nutrition .  . . it’s about how you feel and what you think). 

Getting clear about how you make choices, how to be better with the ones you have and how to improve the way you do choose and decide . . is key to manifesting your sexy, alluring, healthy and abundant life. 

I love helping people become dialed-in choice makers and manifesting ninjas. Let me know how I can help you get to where you really want to be in your life. There is no point in postponing a life you deeply enjoy. 

It starts with a choice and a desire.

Turn Your Browsers Into Believers . . .

Turn Your Browsers Into Believers . . .

For all you biz owners out there who blog on a regular basis—how are you feeling about it?quotes-1522

Bored? Like no one is listening? Like you are writing your blog posts for yourself, or that it just isn’t lighting your fire anymore?

How about those of you who are browsers of blogs—what keeps you going back? What keeps you away? What keeps you interested or enthralled?

How do we, as online entrepreneurs and coaches—turn browsers into believers and/or buyers?

Here are 6 tips to keep your blog posts interesting and producing results (because there is little point in doing it if we aren’t getting the results we desire).

  • Choose a topic or subject that you are genuinely interested in and know well. You can’t keep yourself or others interested and coming back to your blog if you aren’t 100% confident in your topic. You are the expert, you are the content creator, so make it matter. Even if it’s a topic that isn’t totally related to your expertise, make sure you have done your research on it before you write about it or review it.
  • Choose a unique way to present it! Instead of just creating a blog post, maybe do a weekly vlog to mix it up. Many successful online entrepreneurs have moved to a combination of blogging and vlogging. Be unique and true to you!  This isn’t about copying others out there. It’s about finding your unique way to present it.  Use a combination of inspiration and information.
  • Create a clear plan and vision for your blog/vlog. Create a regular schedule, and then do your best to stick with it.
  • Analyze your content and see what’s creating a buzz and what’s not.  What blog posts are getting more comments and responses? Consider creating similar or related content for your more popular posts.
  • Ask!  Ask you subscribers what they like and don’t like. What’s useful and whats not so useful? You can use something like survey monkey to create a quick survey and send it out to your list.
  • Don’t become a slave to it. The purpose of having a blog is to engage, educate and inspire your audience. If you aren’t accomplishing those things—switch it up. There is no point in doing the same thing over and over again if it’s not getting you closer to what you want and making you feel good. There is no point in spending time creating blog posts each week if it feeels like a drain. Use your imagination. Get creative with it!

Creating useful, interesting, juicy content is the thing that will turn our browsers into believers…and then potential buyers.  But in this land of information overload, you have to find a way to deliver content that is practical and purposeful. Blogs and vlogs are how we connect with our peeps. It’s how we build trust and showcase our expertise.  

If we aren’t into it, our readers aren’t gonna feel it either.

If you aren’t offering a little more than just information—then your readers (or watchers) will get bored….and so will you.

What does this have to do with choosing wiser and living larger?  

If we want success, happiness, health, growth—all those good things—then we need to infuse passion and our authenticity into every aspect of our lives. That includes our business, our products, our blog posts . . . all of it!  And for the blog/vlog readers—it’s important for you to spend your time reading and watching things that really do it for you! No more wasting time on things that don’t truly serve us.

An amazing life and business is really just a choice away. Learning how to really listen to who we are, what we desire and then going for it, is the key to living a powerful, passion filled life. It’s the key to manifesting a life of health, prosperity and happiness.

A Bientôt!

The Death of Social Etiquette?

The Death of Social Etiquette?

Any trip to the Department of Motor Vehicles will leave any person asking themselves, “what the (bleep) happened to social etiquette?”    choosemanners0a0a28heart29-default

Or, is it just me? I was recently at the DMV and was a bit grossed out by people sneezing very near me and several VERY loudly talking cell phone users.

What does this have to do with choosing our way to our desires, living a conscious life and being manifesting ninjas, you ask?

How does social etiquette relate to having the health, success and happiness we desire?

It circles back to those things because social etiquette, and being conscious and considerate of others, is a choice.  And if we aren’t being conscious out in the world and in our lives, we will most likely attract that energy back to us. 

Some would say that if we experience rude or impolite people on a regular basis, we may want to look at how we may be showing up in an unconscious way in our own lives.  

Even if it’s being unconscious to our own body by eating food that doesn’t serve us, or silently harboring negative energy towards someone. Just because it’s silent to them doesn’t mean it’s silent to the universe.

Sometimes I find all of this easy to believe (when it isn’t me getting the karmic 2 x 4 upside the head), and other times I brush it off a bit too easily.  Who me? No way! 

It’s the common trap of believing in certain things, but then not applying them in our own lives.

That’s not how it works though.

We don’t get to believe in these spiritual laws only when they serve our agenda..…often an agenda of not wanting to look at our own negative patterns.

If we expect money and wealth, we will get it. If we expect lack of health, we will get it. If we expect happiness in our lives, then we will get it.

I am being totally transparent here. I make mistakes. Being conscious is about owning our mistakes and owning what we are experiencing in life.

I may not be out sneezing on people in public, or loudly talking on my cell phone in the DMV or other public places, but what I noticed is that I was having a strong reaction to these people. I was also having a strong reaction to drivers.  My energy was not calm, clear or grounded when I got in the car. My energy was a  bit expectant of sharing the road with bad drivers. So guess what I manifested?

People not using their turn signals. People on their cell phones while driving. People driving way too slow. People always seeming to be asleep while driving.

I had developed a mild case of road rage, and that is why I was attracting these negative situations in my life. I was being annoyed and then judgmental about fellow drivers and expecting rude, unconscious behavior from them. So, that’s what I got!

Once I became aware of this, I shifted my energy and shifted attracting things or people to be annoyed with. 

The universe delivers what we expect. It may not come in the exact package we expect, but we will receive a similiar energy back.

That is why it’s so important to be aware of what’s happening around us.

What are we attracting? What beliefs are we consiously aware of? What beliefs are under the surface?

Getting clear about how you really, really, truly feel about things is the first and most important part in learning to create your dream life with the power of choice + manifesting.

The power to choose how we react, what we think, how we feel and what we choose to focus on is the very thing that will help us attract health, wealth, success and happiness in our lives.

What do you expect in your life?  Do you see a direct correlation between what you expect and what you create? Let me know. I love hearing from you!!  Leave a comment and let me know if you relate to this and how you see it showing up in your life.

Ciao for now!
