Choice or Stress: Which Is Right for You?

Choice. It is a powerful word, one that places its commander at the helm of the ship.

We often hear people say: I do not have a choice. I have to do this.” “I have to do that.

These statements are dangerous. They plant the seeds for so much stress in our world.

I already can hear how you are responding: But I have to do certain things. I have to work, and there is no way around it.

Is that true?

Audaciously S.M.A.R.T. Goals

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; thoughts become things. I’ve been diving into a classic book entitled “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill, who takes this even further when he says: “Money is the transmutation of desire into it’s tangible equivalent.” What he’s saying is that whatever you desire must first be conceived in the intangible world of thought before it can be brought into the physical world of form. The act of writing down your thoughts brings this process one step closer to reality as it directly transfers your desires into something you can see, touch and feel.

How to Create Your Life’s Dreams: 3 Tips to Getting it Done.

10 Limiting Words You Should Never Say (hint that’s two already)

Thoughts become things, plain and simple. The way you think and the way you speak determine how your world looks, how you feel on the inside and how others perceive you on the outside. If there is one thing many successful people all have in common is that they keep things moving forward; they think positively about the outcomes they desire to achieve and they convey this with their verbal and non-verbal body language. Many of us have what are called “limiting beliefs” which are in essence mental constraints we put on ourselves. A limiting belief can be about anything, something as simple as saying “I can’t do 10 pushups” to something as deep as thinking “I always date the wrong person.” Both are self-made fallacies, they are only true if you believe them to be. So what does all of this have to do with 10 words to remove from your vocabulary? Well, if you’ve noticed- I’ve already used four of them.

The Power of Intention: How do you want to be?

“Thoughts become things.” It’s a cheesy line from The Secret, but it’s a dead accurate statement. Notice everything around you, notice everything that has been created. From a huge skyscraper to the electronic device you are reading this on, It was all once just a pipe dream. Everything that’s been created started as a thought, an idea, an intention. It took the foresight, dream and effort of someone to create that which had never been created before. This is how thoughts become things, this represents the power of intention.
