Transformation: Launching Your Heart’s Desire

In Abundance, Career, Destiny, Goals, Hope, Prosperity, Transformation, Uncategorized, Vision, Vision Boards on 2014/02/28 at 2:36 pm
What's Waiting For You?

What’s Waiting For You?

“Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”   – The Little Prince

Leap Day, a 29th day in February, is a rare occurrence.Leap Day comes only once in four years. In the average lifetime, we enjoy 18-20 Leap Days. The fact that Leap Day will not come around for another two years leaves me with a bit of longing for one day that doesn’t belong to anyone else – a day that I can set aside  to dream, to listen to my heart’s desire, to dare, to prepare to transform my life. But, being melancholic is not how I operate.
Creating a  transformative opportunity for people to listen to their heart’s desire is what I do 365 days a year. So, take heart! .While Leap Day isn’t coming around this year, it is possible to create space for rich and rare occasions such as embarking on a transformational journey no matter what the date on the calendar.
Finding the just right time to embark on a journey of  transformation can be  rather like trying to catching a train to Hogwart’s on Platform 9 3/4 at King’s Cross Station. Vision, belief and trust are involved. And, just as the the busy station may not be aware of the magic happening there, the people in your may be going about their lives, possibly quite oblivious to your need to take a deep breath and dive into the life you see, sense and desire for your great success or your soul’s survival.. You may be the only one who sees that the time to embark on your journey is…. NOW, and that is perfectly okay. Once you are used to the idea, you can share your news and your progress with everyone else.  Just worry about yourself for a little while.
Whatever your goals, whatever your hope for your future – everything begins with Your Vision. When you are clear about what you want in life, you can move in the direction of fulfilling your dreams.
 
If you’re ready to gain clarity about what will make you confident, happy, and prosperous – if  you’re ready for direction, wait no more – Build A Powerful Vision for your future.Today, I offer you and way to launch your desires with just the change you have in your pocket:
1. On a slip of paper, write your heart’s desire.Write one extra copy of your desire and place it in a safe place where you can refer to it in the days and years to come.
2. Roll it up into a tiny little scroll.
3. Go to a party store and purchase a helium balloon. Before they fill the balloon with helium, place your scroll of desire inside the balloon.
4. Attach the balloon to your wrist and walk around with it for about 30 minutes. You’ll certainly be giving attention to your desire. If people ask you about the balloon you’re wearing, tell them that you’re releasing your true desire today.
5. Go to a park, a lake, or a rooftop. 6. Release your balloon! (You might want to have your cell phone ready to take a picture). 
Congratulations – Your journey of transformation has begun!!!

Time to Rise and Really Shine!!!

In Abundance, Career, Goals, Hope, Prosperity, Transformation, Uncategorized, Vision, Vision Boards on 2014/02/24 at 9:30 pm
Tick-Tock!

Tick-Tock!

When we are very young, most of us live in a world of wonder, discovery, and make-believe. As we move into school and take our place in society, we are encouraged to be realistic and to make sensible choices in order to be successful. I have been fortunate to maintain my connection to creativity and imagination for most of my life.

Following my dream and staying connected with my creative source was the obvious choice, albeit financially risky. What I learned about myself, life, and the reward of living a life I loved was extraordinary.

Yesterday, I hosted  Building A Powerful Life in 5 Minutes or Less on BlogTalk Radio. Sticking to 5 minutes doesn’t always happen, but the point of the segment is to help you change your thinking and direction with just a bit of attention each day.

Yesterday’ episode was: Awaken The Dreamer Within (Click Here) . It is part of our February’s theme, “Zeroing in on Clarity To Help You Create A Life You Love”.

Enjoy the show!

I welcome your comments, and as always – Make it a great week.

Why Do People Not Succeed?

In Abundance, Career, Goals, Prosperity, Transformation on 2014/02/13 at 10:54 pm
Why? Why? Why?

Tell Me Why…

Welcome to Gary Chatham, Guest Blogger for Building A Powerful Vision! You are sure to find his post thought-provoking and refreshing…

Gary is a nationally-known Transformational Life Coach, Success Coach, and Business Coach who has helped many clients transform their lives and businesses for over 20 years, providing clear steps to change, so that they can Create the Life they Desire. 

Why do people not succeed?

What defines a successful person?  They have achieved their dream/vision with shining results.  What holds some people back, while others keep moving ahead and create the life they desire?

I have found four reasons why many people are not successful.

Reason #1:  They don’t know their Life’s Purpose, and have not created a powerful vision for their life and/or business.  Or, if they do  know their vision, they are not taking inspired action to create it and achieve their goals.

Reason #2:  They don’t have a practical strategy with achievable goals, then enables them to create their vision.

Reason #3:  They don’t follow through to take the steps they need to take to create what they want.

Reason #4:  They lack the confidence needed to achieve their goals.  They may continue to sabotage themselves consciously or subconsciously.

Let’s discuss reason #3.  If you have found your passion, and your Life’s Purpose, and have mapped out a practical strategy, you still may have challenges in applying energy to create your dream.

I know from experience that a big dream can seem overwhelming when you are at the beginning of the process.  By breaking your strategy down into monthly, weekly, and then daily steps, it will become more doable. Each day when I start work, I ask myself, “What do I need to do today?” and prioritize my actions and my time. In fact, I often do this when I first wake up, and am still laying in bed.  I then walk right in, and know what I need to do first!

I’ve heard entrepreneurs and business owners give up too easily when they encounter difficulties. “I don’t have  ____ so I can’t go on.”  Or, “I don’t know how to _____, so I had to quit.”  

If believe in your vision, and believe that it is really your calling, then believe in your own resourcefulness.  Who do you know that can provide what you are looking for?  Who can teach you to do what you don’t know how to do?  If finances are an issue, how could you trade products/services with this person?  Or, if you don’t know someone that knows or has what you need, who could refer you to this person?

Often, when faced with an obstacle, I will:

a) Ask someone for help.  A mentor, friend, associate, even family member may know the answer.  Don’t be afraid to ask – someone you know may have the answer!

b) Find out who can do the work, or provide what I am looking for.

c) Possibly, most importantly, focus on finding a workaround.  Is it absolutely necessary for you to have ______ in order to move forward?  Could you start some steps without it?  Is there a different way of accomplishing or having the same thing?

We often limit ourselves, based on our conscious or subconscious judgements and expectations, when there the answer, or an alternative could be readily available.

Don’t give up on your dream just because you have hit some snags!  Ask for help, look for a workaround, and keep moving forward!

I hope that you enjoyed Gary’s insights.

As always, I welcome your comments.

Make it a great week!
