To take the journey of personal development is an amazing road of spiritual and personal discovery. There is so much information available to us in 2013 it’s coming our way every time we switch on the computer, famous quotes, blogs you tube videos….the list is seemingly endless.
As much as I love to read all this information one main question comes to mind, how many people actually know how to apply these principles in everyday life? Where is the “spiritual quotes for dummies” book to teach us exactly how we go about thinking positive thoughts constantly and manifesting our desires when we’re having a bad day?
Trying to tell someone who feeling really down to think positively is of no use to that person, handing them a quote from a famous mentor probably isn’t going to fix their problem (although it may lift them in that moment). So how exactly do we go about applying these principles to avoid creating these situations in the first place.
Everything starts with a thought, I’m assuming when I say this that a lot of people are now getting around to that concept. Think about it for a minute. One day before television was invented someone, somewhere must have thought ” gosh wouldn’t it be nice to have a box in the corner of the living room that entertained us, gave interesting information” hmmmm I wonder what it would look like? Boom!! here we go a thought was launched and with focus and belief we now take this television thought for granted every day.
So as much as we can’t change the past we can certainly start creating our future in this very moment by telling the story of the way we would like our lives to be and allowing time to dream and create each day.
A practical approach.
Start thinking about your belief systems, how do you feel for instance about money? Did you grow up in a family who worked hard long hours? What did they teach you in their attitude towards the green stuff? Maybe it was all positive and you were taught to believe in your dreams (even the crazy ones) and follow your ideas at any cost.
Or maybe you were told to work hard, get a good job and be satisfied for 40 years in the same career even if you ended up hating it.
Work on what comes up for you and see how you feel about it. Do you feel like you are fulfilling all your dreams right now? What haven’t you pursued in life yet? Maybe you would have ditched the doctors coat in a heartbeat to be a pilot and pursue you dreams of flying?
Make a list! Make a list as best you can right now of your hearts desires, don’t worry about how you’ll get them just make a list and commit to achieving one of these goals in a set time period. ( you don’t have to show anyone by the way, so let loose)!
Work! Work on visualising your goal for at least 10 minutes a day until you can almost feel it, taste and be right in it. Imagine how you’ll feel achieving your goal.
Personal development, take some time in your day to read books such as the secret or the law of attraction, watch a YouTube video that resonates with all you want to manifest in your life. I’ve been a pupil of self development for some 9 years now and I’ll can tell you from personal experience you never get it done. But who would want to? This is a fun subject and you can’t fail a grade as you are unique haha no-one can argue with that!
I’ve found a great learning tool online for studying personal development and you can read more about that on my website http:// www.creating-the-journey.com.au.
Take action towards your future today, I’ll be covering HOW to take action in my next blog.
Have a wonderful day everyone!
Take control of your wealth and your future in the now
When thinking about what I wanted to create in my life a few years ago, I realised that I was looking for a solution in other people. Things only started to change when I took control and decided to create my own direction in life.
I decided to be kind to myself and not focus on what I didn’t have, but be grateful for what I did have. I also decided to take a small step every day into making my dreams a reality. This was a great confidence builder at the same time as I could see small changes starting to happen which was super exciting!
It’s important to note here that just a few small changes or actions can produce dramatic results in both your personal and professional life.
It’s also important to acknowledge that most of us did not grow up in an educational environment that specifically taught us how to create prosperity or abundance. Most, if not all of the information I’ve gathered over the years has come from personal research, books, seminars and the like.
I also thought I would have benefitted from a personal mentor at one stage, but when I looked back over my career I realised that at least 5 influential mentor figures had been in my life at different times. Not that I realised it at the time but these people shaped my thinking and contributed to the person I have become in this moment. Those I could still find I wrote to and thanked them for their input into my journey so far. I hope that next time I will recognise a mentor when they arrive, as always right on time!
Back then I thought that just being lucky or working hard would create wealth. They are important things and certainly assist in prosperity. However it’s when you start focusing on what you want from life you literally get what you think about, as energy follows thoughts.
I’d see people talking about being under pressure financially and nothing ever seemed to change for them. Whatever they did the money seemed to flow out of their life as quickly as it came in. Then I’d notice other people talking about their abundance and nothing changed for them either, just more flow of abundance.
Your brain is the best computer you’ll ever own. It pays to fill it with quality information that will assist you in achieving the life you want and discarding the negative thoughts that will only keep you in the same place.
It took me a long while practicing this before I started to do it naturally. It was definitely brain training to lose the negative programs, and still I cancel the odd thought here and there every day that I’m aware won’t serve me. Success really does depend on the quality of what you allow into your environment and especially the people who surround you.
Our subconscious mind really is the biggest part of the computer that needs re programming and this takes daily commitment, like anything worthwhile I guess. Remember, positive thoughts are so much more powerful than negative ones. Reading quotes or affirmations everyday actually reprograms the subconscious mind to believe we can succeed in anything. As you imprint this self belief positively in your mind, it begins to create changes to match this new inner reality of belief.
Give yourself permission to create the life you want and take action to go after it. As I said, a small step can make a big difference in the long run.
At the end of it all, whatever we think about ourselves and our abilities on a regular basis will ultimately determine how successful we become.
Keep the thoughts positive and believe you can achieve!
What small step will you take today to make a difference for your future?
What Road Do I Take Said Alice?
Watching some great old movies recently with my daughter really showed some of the life lessons that Walt Disney cleverly disguised within his amazing productions.
Due to her namesake, we had to watch Alice in Wonderland again haha love that movie!
The Cheshire Cat, wise as he was in a crazy kind of way, says something very true which struck a chord with me for the first time (watched this movie a thousand times by the way).
And I quote:
Alice ” What road do I take?”
Cat ” Well where are you going”?
Alice ” I don’t know”
Cat ” Then it doesn’t matter, if you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there”.
This is so true of many people in life, everyone wants to be somewhere different to where they are now and thinks or dreams of a better life in the future. Although this is great, without a clear plan of exactly HOW we are going to achieve these goals and dreams we will be left wandering like Alice in Wonderland.
Alice’s journey through Wonderland was filled with uncertainty, adventure and new experiences. She definitely had to embrace getting out of her comfort zone to find her way home. Life is supposed to be fun, challenging and exciting but often we tie ourselves physically and emotionally to situations that hold us back. Even if we don’t like them they are still well within our comfort zone and its often easier to stay there.
Many people are living in situations that aren’t really making them truly happy and although they desire a change, often talk about it and nothing ever happens… WHY?…because there’s no clear plan of HOW!
Get into a HOW mindset!
Thinking about our goals and dreams usually makes us feel good and quite excited about the future, often the next step is sharing those with friends and family. Sometimes this can be met with mutual excitement and other times 427 reasons why we shouldn’t do that. We’ve all heard about how many new businesses go broke in the first year and the friend who failed miserably at his attempt to follow his dream blah blah blah.
Rule number 1
Decide on your goals, write them down and keep them to yourself! The only people you need to involve in your thoughts are the ones who can help you achieve them.
Think of this, if I told a friend who wasn’t in a great financial position I was planning to spend $100,000 on a new Mercedes, he or she would probably tell me I was insane! They couldn’t perceive my dream as it wasn’t in their thought process. However if I spoke to the local Mercedes dealer he or she would give me 100 clear reasons why I couldn’t live without my dream car! See the difference? Of course you do…so rule number 1 is very important.
Rule number 2
Do the scary stuff….yes work out the financials of achieving your goal.
Sometimes putting $500,000 worth of wish list items down on the list seems like a mountain you could never climb, sounds like way too much money and is often dismissed before we even start. We can find lots of reasons why we can’t have something can’t we?
So do the scary bit and then relax. Now how do we make this amount of money seem more reasonable? I think of it in terms of people coming into my business, if every person brings a dollar figure with them I can simply count on how many people it will take to reach my goal. Working it out in terms of sales and people removed the fear or blocked energy around the dollar figure. One nice car might be worth 20 nice people and who wouldn’t like 20 great people to work with?
Whatever your business involves you can work out exactly how much you need to sell or produce to reach your target, 20 people, 200 cupcakes, 5 new contracts, 100 new sign ups, it’s all relative isn’t it? Whatever it is, you suddenly have a new and exciting perspective or pivot point to work from.
Rule number 3
Never give up!
If you try out a new diet and it doesn’t work, is it the fault of the diet? Probably not as its just words on a piece of paper and that’s not a weight loss solution. Maybe it was the commitment to following the diet that was the problem? Maybe it took too long to see results? What could you have done to aid the weight loss? Maybe stepping up the exercise level would have helped, who knows? It doesn’t matter anyway as the diet didn’t work so maybe the next one will!
Probably not unfortunately, as the commitment, excitement and motivation levels may stay the same.
To reach the goals you desire, a “never give up” attitude is essential. Believe in yourself and remove any doubt or road blocks that pop up by addressing them ASAP. Keep in mind that everything is possible and the more road blocks we can deal with the quicker we will be on the path to success.
Rule number 4
Work on yourself!
Thoughts and beliefs are powerful. They can create or deflate an idea very quickly. Thinking conscious thoughts and re-programming old beliefs about the past can pave the way to a different future. One way to do this is to study an online course such as beyond freedom evolution which is all about personal development, finding out about yourself and learning to create the life you deserve in the future.
This course has been developed and accredited as a university post graduate degree and has won awards for the content and structure. The beauty of studying at home is the freedom to go at your own pace and also connect globally with thousands of people studying the same course to share experiences and meet like minded people – it’s a fun and easy way to learn!
Even if this method is not for you, there are many wonderful resources out there from the law of attraction series to Dr John Demartini’s “Breakthrough Experience” and everything in between.

I’m off down the rabbit hole with Alice
Realise Your Full Potential To Create Success.
Think about it for a minute, no one gets to the top of their field or industry by going it alone. Everyone needs advice or words of wisdom along the way. I bet we could all pinpoint at least one person in our lives so far, whose words have made a huge impact in a motivational way. A professional coach can be a powerful asset to any company or individual by providing inspiration, giving feedback and setting accountability and there’s always the power of new information and perspective a coach will provide.
Trying to reach a point of success in anything all alone can be fruitless and frustrating. As human beings our minds need the expansion and learning input to grow into a success.
How different would your career and personal life look right now if you we’re able to:
Tap into your own potential and improve the way you do things?
Identify your strong points and talents and learn how to use them to your advantage?
Implement easy time management strategies?
Realise your own personal blind spots and subconscious blockages and ways to overcome them?
Create habits that improve your productivity and effectiveness?
Learn to think like a leader in your field and believe in yourself?
Implement creative ideas and bring closure and result to a project?
Everyone has the potential to dream about a perfect life scenario and every person has the potential inside to watch that dream come alive. How do we do that?
Wanting to be successful alone isn’t enough to ensure we achieve these desires. An action plan with clear goals needs to be developed.
Human beings use roughly 15% of brain capacity meaning we are wasting the other 85% which could be put to good use to manifest the life of financial security we all desire and deserve.
Many people talk of what they do want but only a small number of people take any clear action to making their dreams a reality.
We hold ourselves back with subconscious blockages that tell us all the reasons we can’t do something, those mind monkeys are constantly at play and it’s time to silence them to move forward. A coach or mentor will accelerate your progress, to provide you with focus and awareness of how to use your life energy in a positive way to achieve this great life you really want.
The way to remove these blockages? Personal development! Working on yourself with help from coaches, mentors and other influential leaders will change your mindset from negative to positive. It is said that you become more like the 5 people you spend most time with. Who are you choosing to mastermind with on a daily basis?
Studying, reading and learning will also move you forward but you need the right tools. 1000 books may expand your mind but are you getting the right information? Do you have a clear plan of how to implement all this information?
After many years of reading and studying I came across a fantastic course that spoke to me in a language I could understand….plain English! No sketchy details, just a well delivered action plan that changed the way I do things – with a clear purpose.
Remember, how you spend your life energy determines what outcomes you get in life.
To change a current situation you must learn how to change how you are using your life energy and start directing it in an effective manner.
You must actively invest in yourself and your business by adding wise information that helps you move in the right direction.
It’s also important to understand the value of the information if you really want to make a difference in your world and be successful. Seeking out experts who can provide you with the right information is the key.
In society today we have become so reactive to the needs of daily life that we often forget to apply our own life energy to our real life goals. Being part of a team and a coaching process, you give yourself the opportunity to break free of the daily reactive cycle.

Learn How To Be A Success, Lose The Fear Of Failure.
So often in my work as a life coach and part time spiritual healer I come across a common Deep seated belief in people – fear of failure. Sometimes even greater than that is a fear of success.
Sounds bizarre doesn’t it?
Most people you speak to want success even crave success in some shape or form, be it financially or weight loss even conquering addictions and especially in love and relationships.
The human brain is the most powerful computer we will ever have and just like the hard drive on our home computers junk gets downloaded and stored. As we grow up, programs are installed on our brain computers about how to behave, how to react etc all sorts of information gets poured in there!
When our laptops slow down or play up, we go in and remove all the rubbish we don’t need therefore freeing up precious disk space for the new programs we desire.
Why don’t we do this regularly with our most precious hardware – our brains?
The society we live in often tends to promote failure more than success.
We are constantly reading, watching downloading information about famous people, the world watches through the media the rise of a great movie star for instance and waits with baited breath for the star to fall into drugs, divorce and any other negative experience. Then everyone reports and talks about how life went wrong for them, it’s almost like people love hearing it!
What about all the great things that person achieved? What about the gift they gave to their industry? Michael Jackson is a great example of this mass conscious thinking from society and the negative vibes he received in his lifetime.
As we grow up with this and other belief systems that we learn by example, we of course start to form a belief system of our own. Sub consciously thoughts are stored such as these …..successful people often fail, success doesn’t last, once you hit the top the only way is down. Wow! It’s probably easier to make the decision to not be successful at all at anything ever, this protects oneself from ever failing (I say laughing).
So of course this is only one small example of how our beliefs are formed and stored within our computers but hopefully you’ll get my drift.
I started studying the power of the mind about 12 years ago and it’s taken me on a journey through 100’s of different books from spiritual material, medical journals, past life regressions, the law of attraction and really anything I could get my hands on that would explain what really makes us tick as human beings and exactly what we are capable of. This lead me into spiritual healing with amazing results and then to my current destination of personal development. I realised at some point that all the answers I was seeking about myself were within me! Whoo hoo that’s easier than reading another book!
So I opened the can of worms labelled “me” and delved into my own personal development which was sometimes confronting haha (amazing what you find in a subconscious mind) for the purpose of learning to help others.
Using all I had learnt I changed my life into a positive journey and allowed the success to flow in all areas, love, health and finances being the main ones. I am passionate about coaching other people in my business to achieve their goals and learn the value of loving themselves, believing in success and helping them remove old belief systems that are no longer serving them. I work from home and enjoy an executive level income, giving me valuable time to be with my children follow my passion for long distance running and have time to travel and share great experiences with my lovely husband to be.
It’s all about time isn’t it? Everyone has limited time for the things they love and too much time spent working and worrying.
As Albert Einstein so rightly said ” worry it is creating a future event that hasn’t yet happened”. Choose your thoughts carefully and you will never have to worry again as you realise that you can create your own journey.
