I can't believe it!

I can’t believe it is already May. A third of the year has passed and it seems like only last week I was thinking of how to make 2017 a great new start - for my relationships, for my money, and for my career.

How have you made 2017 your badass year?

The one MAJOR thing I worked on this year was my relationship with my money - a double whammy! After the heart wrenching breakup in 2015, left broke, alone, and homeless, I wanted to break up with my checkbook, sell everything I had left (not much) and run off to a deserted island. BUT we all know that just isn’t a really smart thing to do. Plus, I really like running water!

So I started working with my life coach to really create a great relationship with my money and I want to share some of that with you! 

The biggest change I made was thinking more positively about money - revamping my money story. It may seem so simple (and I thought I was doing just fine), but we don’t realize that the way we talk about our money takes away from creating positive vibrations to attract more money.

So here it is.

Change your thoughts and your language around your money. One of the things I got rid of was the word “budget.” I now call it my “money flow.” Feel out the words that you use around your money. 

Stop telling people you’re too broke when you don’t have the money to spend on something you don’t need. Let them know that is not something you want to do, but you don’t have to tell them “I’m broke” or “I’m poor” because you’re really not. 

You just choose to spend your money buying groceries and paying your rent. That’s called being an adult and should be praised instead of thought of as a pain in the ass. Because have a roof over your head and food in your mouth are blessings in your life that some people in this world can only dream about.

What other things do you say when it comes to money? When you say “bills”, what emotions come up? I used to be like “great, have to pay another outrageous bill for my phone.” But what blessing is it to be able to pick up this handheld device and call anyone in the world, or click on the Facebook app and say hi to your bestfriend that is in Australia. It is a blessing and should be thought of that way from now on.

This may sound a little bat-shit crazy to you (or maybe not), but I promise you that you will feel a difference in the way you feel about money. And you’ll start seeing money and gifts come your way. I have no idea how really it works, but it does. 

When you send out positive energy, you get positive energy back. I remember the first week I started to do this, little things happened to me. Someone offered me a free lemonade in the drive thru for no reason. I found $20 in an old pair of jeans. Someone bought me lunch out of the blue. And these things keep on happening, even now months later!

Maybe it’s a coincidence or maybe I have put out positive vibrations into the Universe and these serendipitous events is the Universe’s way of telling me to keep up the good work! Either way, I’m in and I’m not turning back.

Why not try it? What can you lose by making a few small shifts?

Exactly.... Nothing!

So go out there, and make some positive energy that will surround your money story and create more wealth just by seeing what’s in front of you.

Way to grow,

Put Your Soul Into It

Last week I attended a Lululemon sponsored special event, where we had a business coach speak on the topic "Goals with Soul." Even though I feel like I have mastered goal setting, I was very intrigued by the title and jumped into it head first.

The speaker spoke about our goals, but really spent a great amount of the afternoon speaking on how we FEEL through the process. How can we put soul into our goal? We reflected on each aspect of our lives - what do we want in each area of our life and how do we want to feel.

During this event, I realized that I have been going through the motions of meeting my goals (that will ultimately make me happy in the end), but I was forgetting the major component and drive behind those goals....

How I feel and being happy in every moment!

I was going through the motions but I was not feeling anything but stress and anxiety, and worried about building momentum instead of focusing on the feelings that I wanted to feel.

Maybe you can relate? Maybe you were going after a goal, like losing weight or going for a promotion at work. Along the way, you forgot how you want to FEEL. Maybe at the beginning you felt those feelings, but along the way you were so distracted by getting to the end result, you forgot the feelings you desired. The feelings which were the driving force behind your motivation.

It is time to get back in touch with your feelings. Your feelings should be part of your goals - put your soul into your goal. Your success rate will increase, you will feel better, and you'll be that much closer to living the dream life you deserve.

Here are some other things to reflect upon (when you think about your goals) that I took away from this event:

  • What works for you?
  • What hinders you?
  • What's lacking?
  • How challenging are your goals?
  • Who is it for? 
  • What happens when you get off track?
  • How do you celebrate?
  • What do you need to start doing to make it happen?
  • What do you need to stop doing to make it happen?
  • What do you need to continue doing?
  • Will this truly serve you vision?
  • How can you put your soul into your goal now?

You are truly a badass! 

XOXO,

Destiny vs. Bad Luck

How many times a day do you hear (or even say yourself), "well that's just my luck" or "I always have bad luck when it comes to _______"? There is someone out there who decides whether or not you have bad luck and good luck, and you know them well. It's you!
