Kick Horrors of Fear in the Gut, Strength, Courage is Yours NOW!

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.”–Eleanor Roosevelt

Facing fear comes in many forms. It also is indoctrinated into our psyche over years and years. We play into it when difficulties overtake our life. When the bombardment of “I can’t” “this is too hard” become so overwhelming in our minds.

fear, happy, joy

Just as the quote states we live through a horror.

The excellent news is the strength you need is within you. It’s not hard to tap into when you discipline yourself to overcome the challenge. Here are some daily rituals I do that help me get through:

  • Stop and just breathe. Take sixty seconds and breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth. Breathing will relieve tension in your body. This makes a measurable change in your body. 
  • Walk. Just get out and walk for a bit. Again relieving stress in your muscles will clear your mind. It’s incredible how this works. Walk up a flight of stairs, walk down the street, just get out and walk.
  • Meditate. Learn to quiet your mind. Meditation can help you focus your mind on positive. There is a reason it’s called a meditation practice. Do this often, set designated times to practice your meditation. 
  • Grateful. Be grateful for what you have and for what is coming. Thank God for the blessing he is moving into your life. 
  • Pray. Don’t beg, pray. “Please God get me through this, please” NO! Give to God what you need, what he needs to guide you. Show him you’re grateful for it and let him do the rest. 

You can overcome adversity, fear, you name it you can overcome. It takes work, it takes some pain, it takes real desire. You can do it! I have to push every day to overcome huge fears. Someday’s the journey seems too much. That’s the time take one more step, do one more thing forward. This makes all the difference.

You’re Not A Tree, change can Happen

“If you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree.”–Jim Rohn

When you dissect most obstacles in our lives chances are the solution is simple, change!

Our problem with this simple solution is ourselves. We’re going to overthink, stress, doubt, fear, procrastinate, and run scared. Why??? Because we’ve conditioned ourselves to accept the bad.

prayer, faith, God

Changing old paradigms is a struggle that is worth every bit of pain you may or may not experience. Condition yourself that life will be remarkable, even when NOTHING is suggesting that. Hold onto faith AWESOME LIFE.

Faith in a positive outcome will carry you through to success. Learn to believe in the face of adversity, and you will win!

You can change, you’re not a tree!!!

Why Challenges are More Tempting than a Cinnabon

Yes, friends, I can hear you saying “have you ever had a Cinnabon?” Of course, I have who hasn’t but and this is a big but, challenges mean HUGE change is coming!

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.”–Eleanor Roosevelt

Challenges have drug me through change that feels like rolling down a briar patch hill at full speed. Bruises, cuts, stickers and a BIG owe damnit. If you’re like me, sometimes we fight change because of old habits and paradigms we need to shed like a snakeskin.

hope, freedom, life
A Challenge, Quit or Win it’s your Choice!

When you learn to embrace challenges life opens up in a whole new way. An easy analogy would be beginning a diet. At first, it’s a real challenge to put down a Soda, put down the ice cream bowl, put down a big juicy hamburger. It takes a reconditioning of our mindset to conquer this challenge. Willpower is tested to the nth degree.

Often we cave into temptation because of the pain of change at that moment is too high. Until we overcome that challenge to our will, we continue to struggle.

Here is how I overcome challenges that in the beginning maybe painful. Most change for a brief time is painful, just saying!

  • Resolve yourself to the fact that on the other side of this change, is that which you truly desire. Meditate on the end result daily, multiple times daily if needed.
  • Keep faith in your heart. Hope that you can do that which you desire.
  • Any discomfort is temporary. Change does not take the balance of your life to achieve. Really, you can’t take a month or two to make a notable lasting difference in your life? Come on!
  • No matter how dim it looks, how challenging it becomes never lose hope.
  • Make time every day to focus solely on the challenge and overcome fears that surround it.

Some will say easier said than done. Agreed!

If you don’t overcome fear, overcome pain, then nothing will change. You have to want it bad enough, the discomfort is temporary.

When challenge rears its head, you can be sure the enemy is behind this. The enemy does not want you to win. Don’t cave in! On the other side of this is the life God has for you. Nothing worth having comes without a price.

The price you pay when you successfully navigate to the other side of the challenge you will tell yourself “I would have endured a thousand times more to have what I have achieved today.”

Giving up is a bad habit to a temporary problem. Make the choice with me today, that giving up or giving in is no longer an option in your life! God bless.

Desire in your Life

Desire

“The starting point of all achievement is desire”. Napoleon Hill

The sad thing about desire very few have it or understand it’s real meaning. Most people say that have a desire to do this or that but in reality, they’re not willing to dig in to achieve it. That’s the real difference between desire and wish. You can wish to do something those with desire actually do it!

self help, success, freedom

Desire is a passion you must fill your being with. It’s not something you learn it’s something you have. If you don’t feel it in your soul then maybe you need to rethink what it is you’re doing.

Desire:

  • Should fill your soul
  • Should get you up in the morning
  • Should be unwavering
  • Should be without fear
  • Should drive your every waking moment

What do you desire?

  • Peace & Contentment
  • Security
  • Financial Success
  • Relationship Success
  • Family Success

Then what are you doing? If you aren’t up every day with a sense of desire to achieve life on your terms, then really what are you doing? Lots to think about is it not?

Do not confuse desire with a wish. “I want success” is a wish, a desire drives you to do something about it.

This book will touch a lot on it takes work to achieve anything you truly want. It does just not come to you, the success that is. Anyone that has been married for over a decade will tell you a good marriage takes work.

We will use this statement throughout the book:

If money and time are not the roadblocks in our way, what do you want?

To find our true desire, you must have a passion for what it is you want to do. So if no roadblocks existed what would you be doing in your life?

STOP HERE

What I would like for you to do, is to do a few things to define what you would like to be successful at and then we will find our desire. We’re going to find one thing that we can do NOW to find success in one part or all of our life. Change is eminent in this exercise!

  1. Find a place where you can feel inspired. Park, pond, river, mountain, backyard, wherever you find peace and solitude. Clear out your head and identify what you would like to do. What will bring success to you?
  2. Have a notepad and pen. Write your thoughts out. Again don’t sabotage it with I will “never be able to afford this”, “I am not smart enough”, blah, blah, blah…
  3. Take as much time as you need. Don’t procrastinate, if you need a day to work this out take it but don’t get off task!!! Now go.

Welcome back!

For most of us, this is a hard task. We’re so used to dismissing dreams it’s hard to imagine achieving one. So nice job completing this task!

So you have your WHAT, that thing that defines success for you. This is the one thing where you should begin to feel desire.

The dictionary defines desire as
Along for, hope for. Noun

You should feel this in your very core.

Okay, so we have a lot more to cover. Most of you are saying now what?
