How to Create a Compelling Life Vision Upcoming Workshop

Summer has always been a highly creative time for me. I love sitting on my deck, walking by the creek that runs through our neighborhood and driving into the mountains reflecting and dreaming. Even when I was a kid, I would lay on a blanket in my yard surrounded by books and magazines dreaming about what I wanted to do with my life – when I grew up. I would cut out pictures and daydream. My imagination would run wild. It turns out that joy and the ability to imagine has served me well throughout my adult life. I dreamed and thought big even as a young one, even though I didn’t know that is what I was doing.

Did you know that many people stop thinking big and dreaming big when they “grow up”? They get caught up in survival mode or what is even worse is having goals to just be a little bit better. I often hear people say, “I want to make more money.” I will ask, how much more?… and they don’t know. When pressed, they might say something like, I just want the room to breathe at the end of the month or I just want to take a comfortable vacation.

The problem is that goal to just be a bit better is what keeps you from really doing what you would love to do.

So why do people default to the just a bit better mode? Well, for most of us, we haven’t been taught to think big or even to think forward into the future. for every area of our lives. People don’t think- what kind of parent or grandparent do I want to be in three years? What goals do I have for my family? Or what do I want my business to look like in three years? Or what do I want my workouts to look like in three years? Where do I want to be traveling to and with whom?

Why create a life vision? When you create a detailed life vision, you can reverse engineer it and make the daily decisions now, that will keep you moving forward.

Why create a life vision? When you create a detailed life vision, you can reverse engineer it and make the daily decisions now, that will keep you moving forward.

When I talk to potential clients, I often hear, “I know I need to spend some time mapping out my vision, but I don’t have time.”  What if you chose something that would help you make the time to do this highly important success step?

I created a NEW workshop- Living Your Vision and we start next week. The Living Your Vision Workshop was created so you can map out a compelling vision for your life. What is a compelling vision? It lights you up, and yet it holds enough detail so you know where you clearly want to be. It provides a roadmap that will guide you when you feel lost.

The Journal Book: Your Journaling Journey

Writing in a daily journal can be life-changing. When I made the choice to write in a daily journal over 12 years ago, my life changed. I used an active journaling process where my intent was to shift my thoughts and not just document thoughts. I learned how to choose happiness and joy every day as a result of my journal habit. I was thrilled when I had a new member in my Impact Mastermind group who was just as enthusiastic about journaling as I was. Lori then used her expertise as a world-class corporate trainer, her stellar research skills and her experience with several different journal types to create her latest NEW book.

This is what my mastermind member and author Lori Ann Roth PhD. says about her NEW book. (ad)” The Journal Book: Your Journaling Journey was created to introduce you to the world of journaling, to help you discover if journaling is indeed for you, and to decide which journal is best for you.

Journals can help you relax, grow your mind, lose weight, and get richer.

Even if you started a journal in the past and quit, you can gain insights into The Journal Book. Each of us has unique gifts and talents, and our purpose in life is to share those gifts and talents with others. The Journal Book will illustrate the many types of journals you can create and help you decide if you would like to start your journaling journey. My hope is that you read The Journal Book to discover the perfect journal for your thoughts and ideas.

Not only will you benefit by documenting your life stories but also by sharing these stories, you will help others learn and grow.”

If you have always wanted to find a journaling style that fits your personality, Lori’s book is for you.

Win the Day: Get What You Want Done

If you want to experience more success in your life, discover what wins the day for you and do them first. These win the day actions are usually simple, but vital. For example, a win the day action might be getting up when your alarm clock goes off instead of hitting the snooze button, it might be waking up earlier, it might be going to the gym right when you wake up, it could be writing for an hour every day. It could be writing in your journal, or following up with potential clients. Or maybe it is a combination of these actions. 

Reflect on what a win the day action or set of actions is for you. What are the crucial action steps for you? Hint: these are usually things with which you tend to procrastinate. Another hint: these are things that if you did them consistently, you would reap huge rewards like get fit and healthy, write a book, attract ideal clients, and/or make money/difference.

When you know your “win the day actions” and do them, the rest of the day is frosting on the cake. I like having the most important things for the day accomplished by 10 am in the morning. You will have days when you don’t feel like getting up and doing them, and these are the days that make the biggest difference. When you transcend “I don’t feel like it” into “I do what is most important whether I feel like it or not” you move into a zone of high performance, high confidence, and high happiness. When we consistently break promises to ourselves, we are less happy and less confident. It is actually much easier to create small daily habits than to let things go and then try to do everything at once to make up for consistency.

When you transcend “I don’t feel like it” into “I do what is most important whether I feel like it or not” you move into a zone of high performance, high confidence, and high happiness.

As you shift to a “win the day” mindset and take your highest priority actions steps, you most likely will have moments when you slip back into a more comfortable state. This is normal. This is the process. Gently get back on track and don’t look at the past even if the past was an hour ago or a day ago. As T.S. Eliott says, “Every moment is a fresh beginning.”

Interview with Annika Brindley from Little Sleepers and Awakened Parenting.

One of the most rewarding and challenging experiences in life is the moment you become a parent. You rely on help and advice from family, friends, colleagues, and experts and just when you feel like you have one aspect handled, something else comes up. It becomes easy to lose yourself as your identity becomes parent first. I interviewed child sleep expert and awakened parenting expert, Annika Brindley. She tells us how she has helped thousands of families over the last 17 years and why she started her business.

Listen to the podcast interview here

Meet Annika Brindley:

Annika Brindley is the founder of Little Sleepers LLC, an infant and child sleep consultation practice located in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. She earned a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University, Los Angeles, California. Annika began her career providing counseling and therapy to individuals, couples, and families at Women’s Clinic and Family Counseling Center in Los Angeles. It was through working with families with young children, that she began to see a common factor that appeared to cause conflict and a division within the family.

The common factor was a lack of sleep. She thought, there must be a solution. There must be an art to teaching children how to sleep, and so began her quest to create a solution.

She DISCOVERED THROUGH HER WORK HELPING CHILDREN TO SLEEP, THAT PARENTS NEEDED TO AWAKEN.

Her practice has expanded to coaching parents in The Art of Awakened Parenting. The parent/child relationship is a natural invitation to become a conscious self-loving human being. She has seen parents, through teaching their children how to sleep, be able to overcome their own fears, recognize patterns and learned behaviors and identify false beliefs they hold.

Annika’s Awakened parent coaching practice allows parents to continue to learn to become integrated, self-loving adults. She is passionate about the healthful benefits of good sleep and awakened parenting. She loves working with diverse families around the globe to give little ones the sleep they deserve.

5 Keys to Unlocking Your Creativity and Success

Whether you are working on developing an online course, creating a signature program, writing a book, writing songs, developing a business vision or plan or creating a vision for what you will do next, creativity rules. You are in the creative process and creating anything takes dedication and commitment. There are many unknowns as you seek to create something new and fresh.

Most often, you will go to your logical mind first and try to think through your creation. You might hit a creative block or even a period of procrastination. The work stops and you may even feel stuck.

Do any of these sound familiar?

You sit in front of your laptop with a blank screen and nothing comes.

You set a schedule to work on your project and you do everything else but that project.

You constantly think about what you want to create, but it doesn’t make sense yet.

You know what you want to create or you have no idea what you want to create but you have some thoughts.

You get about halfway through your project and stop.

You finish your project and then shelf it or put it on the back burner and don’t take the next step so you can reach people with your work.

You feel a sense of dread…maybe this will never get done?

You are comfortable with what you are currently doing, yet you know you are meant for a bigger step.

You don’t have to wait until you feel creative, you can unlock creativity.

Click to tweet

All of these scenarios are examples of creative blocks. There is a solution. You don’t have to wait until you feel creative, you can unlock creativity.

Part of the solution is moving yourself to the creative zone. What do I mean by zone? You could also use the word flow. Zone or flow means that your creativity seems to move through you, in an almost effortless way. Musicians, artists, actors, surgeons, athletes, speakers, writers, and more report zone or flow as a state of being where it feels like something takes over. It is a timeless feeling. You could feel like only five minutes have passed when it has been eight hours. Often your best work comes forward during a zone experience.

I love the zone. I get into this creative zone every time I have a group coaching call with my Inner Circle, every time I create a podcast or am being interviewed. I am in the zone when I am writing. I once wrote 16,000 words over a weekend and it didn’t feel hard. The words just flowed. My first book was finished during a zone experience.

Journal Exercise: When have you experienced the zone and what did it feel like?

Use these five steps to allow creativity to flourish in your life.
  1. Get in the zone. You can move into the zone using this meditation exercise. Get still, close your eyes, take some deep breaths and then let your mind go to that memory of your best zone experience and feel that feeling. As you feel that zone feeling let it amplify. As you let the feeling grow, invite the flow or zone experience. Ask, “What wants to come forward from me now?” or “What is my next step?” Breathe deeply and when you feel ready, open your eyes and write down ideas that come to you.  You can repeat this throughout the day or over many days. The zone is about inviting and allowing and not about forcing. Soon, being in the zone will be natural and you will easily move into the zone.  When you work, you can even affirm, ” I am stepping into the zone.
  2. Be open to new ways of thinking and doing. You may be surprised when you are in the zone. When I was writing my first book, which I thought was going to be a book on leadership, a spiritual book wanted to emerge. So I wrote a spiritual book, Keys to Living Joyfully. My leadership book (Be the Inspiration) ended up as my third book. Stay flexible.
  3. Face the fear. When you start living life in a bigger way, fear will come up. Don’t let it stop you. It is not the fear that stops you, it is you stopping because of the fear. You is the operative word here. You are the driver, the creator. Address the fear using tools like tapping (try my audio podcast on tapping for getting out of a slump) or affirmation (I am letting go of the fear right now).
  4. Break old paradigms and stories. Your life is the way you decide to describe it. Stop letting the past dictate your present and future. Let the past be in the past. Let go of blame.  Instead of saying, I am stuck. Affirm, I am creating my next…(fill in the blank).
  5. Pay attention to clues and opportunities. You may be writing a book that really is a screenplay or a book that needs to be a course or a course that needs to be a book or one thing that becomes many things. You may be intellectually glued to one pattern or idea, but something else wants to emerge from your soul. Let your work be driven by your highest self.

Aide your creative process with practical tools. Keep a notebook on hand at all times to jot down ideas. Use your phone voice recorder to capture thoughts. Transcribe audios. You can actually voice record an entire book and then hire someone to transcribe it and then you can edit it. Keep lists using an app like Google Keep or Evernote.  Use mindmaps and vision boards. Use sticky notes. Use colored pens and markers. Use software to help you. If you are a coach or consultant you will love this podcast episode masterclass on creating signature programs.

Get feedback. When you are creating an online course or coaching program, get feedback from clients or potential clients along the way. Your trial run people can take portions or all of your course in beta mode. Use surveys with well-posed questions. Consider using a focus group to help you. Create surveys in facebook groups. Joining a mastermind of peers helps with feedback, too. Note: you will likely get differing opinions from people, don’t let this drive you crazy. Go with your gut.

Don’t limit yourself. You have so much inside and so much to offer. Let it out. Be heard. Be seen and enjoy it.

How are those goals going?

If you have stepped off the path or lost focus, guess what? You are not alone. When you set goals, you have passion and commitment in the beginning and this energy keeps you working on them.

But then life gets in the way. You get a cold. You have family mini emergencies and sometimes major ones. Sometimes you just get distracted. You wake up one morning and realize that you have lost sight of your goals and the momentum that was helping you cruise along.

When you realize that you have lost your focus, getting back on track as quickly as possible will help you build that momentum and passion again.

Click to tweet

When you realize that you have lost your focus, getting back on track as quickly as possible will help you build that momentum and passion again.

If you have been completely on track with your goals, congratulations. However, chances are at least one is slipping through the cracks.

Follow these guidelines to refocus:

First, forgive yourself. It’s disappointing when you realize that you are not making the progress that you want. Detours are okay. Sometimes detours teach us important lessons. Take a few minutes and write in your journal how you have grown and what you learned about yourself from getting off track.

Next, take care of your energy. Wake up early and engage in a daily success ritual, This will help you get back on track. In fact, your loss of momentum may have stemmed from a disruption in your daily success routine. Did you stop journaling? Did you stop exercising in the morning? Review your morning routine and make any changes. What is a success ritual? Whatever works for you. Including actions that stimulate your mental, physical, and spiritual aspects will create the biggest boost. For example, my routine right now is coffee with coconut oil, vitamins, essential oils, candles, prayer, a ten-minute exercise routine, reading something inspirational, and writing in my journal. This takes between 45 minutes and an hour, but then I am ready for anything.

Review all your goals. Review your vision board. How can you make a difference today? If your goal is to get out of debt, pay extra on your debt today even if it is just $10. Then decide that you will never make the minimum payment on any debt again.  If your goal is to create more cash flow, look at where you are leaving money on the table. Are you behind on invoicing? Have you followed up with people? If you work for someone, have you maximized your bonus/raise/401k potential?  For each goal, think action. Look at action steps that make the most difference. If you have a service business, this means any action that brings in clients. If you sell products, this means actions that help you make a sale.  Get out of the habit of only planning. Yes, planning is important, but action brings the results.

Get out of the habit of only planning. Yes, planning is important, but action brings the results.

Understand that you are more than your emotions. It is normal to wake up and not feel motivated some days. Sky high motivation is not sustainable. The real success comes when you act even when you just don’t feel like doing anything. Of course, inspired action is the most fun, but there will be days when you act when you would rather goof around. You also can use tools to help turn around your emotions. Tapping is one of my favorites. Here is a tapping audio from my podcast on How to Stop Self Sabotage.  Don’t let frustration or overwhelm fester. Decide to shift out of it.

Each day that you are back on track, you build momentum. Even after day 1, you will feel better. Three days creates a huge change. A week, 21 days, 30 days- miracles start happening.

Make today the day you decide to get back on track.

Being Remarkable Would you love to make this your best year ever? What would a remarkable year look like for you? (Journal Prompt)

Start with some goals that make you truly uncomfortable. If you are too comfy, you are not growing. Get uncomfortable. Set goals for each important area of your life and make sure that they are your own goals- not what someone else thinks you should do. Think about what you would love to accomplish instead of what you think is reasonable. Reasonable is a story. What one person thinks is reasonable and realistic isn’t to another person. So since it is all subjective, why not go big. Think big.

When you set big goals, you might fall short, but you will accomplish so much more than if you set tiny goals that are uber-easy to achieve. 

Click to tweet

Then create a vision board to help you see your path.  You’ll find some vision board tips here.

Follow these practices to create the year you want.
  • Review your vision board/goals daily. Keep your vision board in a place where you will see it. (the bathroom, your office, etc). Study it for a minute or two each day. You can even take a picture of it and use it as wallpaper on your phone. Every time you look at your phone, you will see your vision board.
  • Move your body. (Any physical movement will help clear your thoughts, keep you happier, and more motivated).
  • Pick one tool to keep you motivated. Just one. You could choose many, but decide on one thing that you will use when you are procrastinating or losing momentum. You might choose a song, a meditation, a book, writing in your journal, an app, running up and down stairs or something else.
  • Practice self-love, live in joy. Be gentle. See the good in the world. Find something to appreciate each day. Live in the present. Every time you worry about the future, pull your attention to the present moment.
  • Practice the Pause. The Pause means you are always at choice. When you Pause before reacting, you have the moment of choosing your response or your action.
  • Celebrate your accomplishments even the small ones.
  • Release mistakes. Quickly let go of missteps. Everyone makes mistakes, lingering over them and punishing yourself over them keeps you from moving forward.
  • Interrupt your schedule- get uncomfortable. Shake things up. What can you do differently right now? Change your environment.
  • Track your effort. This is even more important than tracking your results. You can control your effort. If your goal is to write. Track the time you spend writing. If your goal is to get in shape, track the minutes you workout. If your goal is to increase your wealth, track the money you set aside.
  • Create world-class habits. Anyone can create the world-class habits. You can incorporate the same world-class habits of anyone you admire. Those world-class habits will eventually take you wherever you want to go. Some examples of world-class habits are getting up early, keeping a clutter-free environment, being on time, daily exercise, using a morning success ritual, showing appreciation, reading more, watching less television, and so on. You can see it is really the simple things. But very few people do these simple things. You can be extraordinary and remarkable by just practicing simple, daily habits.
  • Create a world-class mindset. This is a mindset of thinking big, positive self-belief, resilience, grit, choosing to see best in people and the best in situations, staying upbeat, helping other people, being generous, and getting up after disappointments.
  • Expand, let your light shine, trust the process, and love more.

When you set your goals, look at them again and ask, “How can I expand this?” Expansion is part of a world-class mindset. 

Be the light. Shine from within, don’t depend on other people to see your light or be your light.

Trust the process. Trust yourself. Trust God. Set your goals, take inspired action, and then let go and trust. When you worry, gently bring yourself back to trust.

“Love is the beauty of the soul.” St. Augustine

Click to tweet

“Love is the beauty of the soul.” St. Augustine.

When you ask what should I be doing?, the best answer is always… Love more. Love others, love yourself. The more unconditional love you allow, bring in, and give, the better you feel. The better you feel, the better your results.

“Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians, 13: 7-8

Wishing you love, peace, vibrant health, and abundance this year.

In Happiness,

Sheri

Day 12 of 12 of the 12 Days of Christmas Follow Your Joy and Bliss this Holiday Season

Merry Christmas. I am wishing you love, joy, passion, and peace today and all throughout the year.

What really makes you happy? Chances are that it is not the gifts, the trips, or the things. Yes, all of that is fun and it’s wonderful to enjoy and appreciate things. However, happiness comes from your inner world. Happiness is tied to feelings of freedom, adventure, fulfillment, inner peace, making a difference, and loving. If you doubt this, think back to a time when you felt unhappy and you went on a shopping spree to counteract the sadness, overwhelm, anxiety or frustration you were feeling. Maybe you felt elated for a while, but the feeling was fleeting.

When you say, I will be happy when I am out of debt, buy the house, I have kids, my kids are grown, I get that job promotion, or I go on my dream vacation, it is not true. Why? Because you bring yourself to these experiences. If you haven’t learned to be happy now, no thing or circumstance will bring lasting happiness. This is truly beautiful because this means that what you have been searching for is here now. You can be happy here now. Your goals are worthwhile and I believe humans are born to create and that we feel an inner drive to create. But we can be happy during the process.

How can you follow your joy and bliss right now and not wait for someday to be happy?

Your Grandmother was right- appreciate what you have now.  This is a simple idea, but for many people, it is easier said than done.  Why? Because it is so much easier to get caught up in thinking about what is unfair.

Here is a simple exercise: Make a list of everything that you feel is unjust in your life. Maybe your sibling owes you money. Maybe you lost your job due to down-sizing. Maybe your parents had favorites. Maybe you made a bad investment. You have an unreasonable ex. Write down everything. Once you finish, ask, “Am I willing to let this go?” If not, ask, “Am I willing to be willing to let this go?”

If you don’t feel willing to forgive, here is a helpful prayer that I have said many times in my life: “Dear God, Please help me to open my heart to be willing to be willing to forgive, Amen.”

This would soften my heart. Sometimes instantly or eventually, (it depended on my level of stubbornness), I would truly forgive and let go.

Even if you haven’t let go fully, yet, you can still practice gratitude and appreciation. Gratitude and resentment cannot be thoughts that are held at the same time. The more you practice gratitude, the less you will feel resentment about what is unjust or unfair in your life.

The key is to write an appreciation list and only put the things on this list that you feel grateful for, don’t put anything on that you think you should feel grateful for. No “shoulds”.

Once you are feeling deep appreciation, ask, “What would it feel like to follow my bliss today?” Pause, then notice if you get any intuitive information. Listen. If you feel guided towards an action step, take it.

Throughout your day, pause and appreciate people and your surroundings. See the beauty. See the blessings.
