EP 35: Getting Motivated and Making Things Happen in Your Life

eps 35 v1We live in a world which is far too dependent on external stimuli. We want something outside of us to come along and make us feel a certain way or to create certain results in our lives.  We celebrate outcome far more than process. And, while external results are great, the key is to increase our joy and our passion is through the process.

Stop waiting for something to happen to start living your heartfelt desires. No one else is going to come along and grant all your wishes. If you are a musician, sing or play your instrument every day. If you are an artist, draw or paint every day. If you are a writer, write every day. If you are a coach, find someone to connect with and serve every day. Whatever that thing is you want to be, do it now. It doesn’t matter if the form isn’t exactly as big or in the exact package that you want, you can express the joy every day or at least every week.

The same goes for waiting for someone else. You cannot wait for a person to come along to make you feel a certain way. If you are single and are longing for a romantic partner to feel love and connection, you need to generate those feelings inside yourself. Have an open and full heart instead of being down in the dumps and thinking something is missing.

Remember that we are the source of everything in our life. We do not have 100% control over external events but we do have a choice over how we want to feel. You are the source.

In today’s call with Melissa, we dive into how she can get her mojo back and how she can get and stay motivated by doing or creating something every day to help her connect with the joy of the process.

Consider/Ask Yourself:

  • Are you struggling with your mojo or having a hard time getting motivated?
  • Are you waiting for some external thing or person to grant your wishes or make you feel a certain way?
  • Are you more attached to results and not enjoying the process of your life?
  • Is there someone you feel obligated to please by having amazing answers to their questions about your dreams, career or love life?

Melissa’s Question:

Melissa wants to get her mojo and confidence back regarding her acting career.

Melissa’s Key Insights and Aha’s:

  • She may be experiencing adultolescence
  • She’s looking for something external to re-ignite her mojo
  • She can make her vision clearer
  • She teaches people how to treat her by her responses to their questions
  • Honoring herself will help get her mojo back

How to get over it and on with it:

  • She can direct her life more instead of waiting for things to happen to her
  • She needs to generate inspiration from inside herself
  • She can try to create opportunities to connect with other people
  • She can start creating her own content and do it every day
  • She should honor her choices and stand by them

Tools and Takeaways:

  • Write down or act out the times in your life when you had mojo and use it as a reference point to connect back to the feeling.
  • Act the part and create the feelings you want to feel every day.
  • Practice responding in a different way to those people who make you feel pressure. Be congruent in your own self-acceptance.

A Prayer Of Gratitude

I love the week of Thanksgiving here in the States because gratitude is on everyone’s mind. When we are aware of what we do have, we are a lot less inclined to obsess about all the things we don’t. Cultivating a consciousness of gratitude is a spiritual practice – it’s a MUST for anyone who is committed to living a life of love.

My personal gratitude practice consists of an evening gratitude ritual that I have done for years. Every night before I go to bed, I write a list of things that happened that day that I am particularly grateful for. Things like a rockstar parking spot, magical moments of serendipity, a fabulous meal, a laugh with a friend, or noticing an old pattern or trigger come up that offers me an opportunity to work my process. My gratitude journal (which I share with you in the video) is also a wonderful way to keep a diary of my life. I love looking back through it to reflect on past moments and celebrate lessons and blessings.

Having confidence is not as hard as you think

Last week in my women’s coaching circle, one of the women was sharing about a work situation and expressed that she “needs to work on being more confident.” She believed that she would be more respected in her company if she communicated like the other employees who she perceives as being more confident.

Can you relate? Are there situations in your life where you wish you felt more confident?

We have all had moments of mild to extreme self-consciousness where the feeling of confidence seems about as far away as Jupiter. Those awkward moments or instances where we feel judged by others often make us believe that we need to “work on” becoming more confident.

How have you “worked on” being more confident? Perhaps by taking public speaking classes? Rehearsing things you want to say in front a mirror? Getting a coach? Buying a new outfit?

While all those things are wonderful forms of self-support, feeling more confident actually takes way less effort. I explain in more detail in my vlog below, but here is the bottom line: the only reason that you do not feel confident is because you are judging yourself. Period. Really.

The instant you stop judging yourself and looking for all of the ways you should be more, better, or different you will experience confidence. You do NOT feel confident because you are not accepting yourself fully for who you are.

Want to join me in the Mexican Riveria?

Imagine five days on a beautiful beachfront property, daily yoga, delicious food, connecting with like-minded women, swimming in the ocean, sunsets, time just for you to relax . . . and leaving with a full heart and renewed sense of joy and peace about your love life.

This vision can be your reality by joining us for my retreat in Tulum, Mexico this January. We have four spots left. Is one of them yours?

It could be if you can you relate to any of the following:
• You are ready to call in a partner to share your life with
• You are sick and tired of attracting unavailable people
• You are currently in a relationship you are seeking clarity about
• You want to bring the passion back into your current relationship and learn ways to be a better partner.
• You are heartbroken or hung up on someone and really want to get over it!
• You are an independent woman who knows how to get things done, but deeply desire a stronger connection to your feminine side
• You know the value of treating yourself to amazing vacation that supports your growth and dreams!

If any part of you is saying, “Yes, I want that!” I encourage you to act quickly. Don’t listen the excuses that are just getting in the way of the life you really want.

A focus of this retreat is about letting go – and the first thing to let go of is your excuses for why you can’t come like: “Well I really want to wait for a guy to take me on a trip” or “I can’t afford it” or “I just cannot take the time off” or “I really need to spend time on practical things.”
