Mantra words can change your life, business and future.
Every year I choose 3 soul words to focus on for the year as my mantra. It allows me to really make a BIG shift and to maintain my focus and commitment on what I really want in life for the year.
I have a process I created to choose my 3 words that ensure I really live the dream life I deserve. After all we only get 1 life so why not make the best of it right? For those of you in my group we will talk about the process of how to choose what 3 words work for you to grow your millionaire mindset. With that being said let me share my words with you…
For 2017 my 3 words are:
MY FIRST WORD: LOVE
Love can set your soul on fire. Love can open you up to possibilities. Love of life can bring about new actions. Love for your work can bring joy to yourself and your clients. Love and passion can bring about opportunities. Love can change everything about your life.
How often do you think about love in your life?
Do you love everything in your life? The person you are with? The clothes that you are wearing? The routine you create for yourself? The food you eat? The people you spend time with? You business? Your office?
We know what love is, but do we spend time on making our lives filled with what we love? So this year LOVE is the word.
I focus on love every year but this year is different.
Everything I do must come from a place of love or I won’t do it. Sounds simple right?
Last year I spent time doing things that really weren’t my standard. I got caught up in people pleasing and trying to be nice and just muddle through the event or situation because I felt I had to.
But no more…
If I don’t LOVE IT, then I must say no.
And that goes for everything in my life. Most women have lots of clothes, and I’m no different. I have a closet full of designer clothes and designer handbags and designer shoes, and some of it, A LOT OF IT has to go because I don’t love love love it. No more spending on things that don’t make my soul feel filled with happiness and enthusiasm and peace when I wear it.
MY SECOND WORD: ALIGNMENT
Alignment will set you straight, so you can do what makes your heart and your mind feel in harmony. Alignment is what gets you out of bed early to do more of what you love.
I must feel that what I am doing in my life is 100% in line with my values, my dreams, my goals, and how I want to feel and who I want to be.
Too often we get caught up in doing what must be done because there is a deadline or because someone asked something of us and we just do it. But being aligned is all about staying true to your self. Being aligned is about focusing and living what matters to you regardless of what others are saying or doing.
I love to read. I read all sorts of things, science fiction, non-fiction, personal development books, comic books, blogs and magazines. And with reading a lot means buying a lot of books. I’ve been really torn between loading up my kindle or choosing a hardcover.
We all probably know loading up on kindle saves trees and ordering a hardcover means chopping down trees and something as stupid as that was pushing me out of alignment with myself. So instead of feeling crazy about it all I just decided to donate money to a tree conservation program AND to plant a new tree. (I bought an olive tree and planted it!)
So whatever you want to do to FEEL in alignment with yourself, go for it. If you want to wear striped pajamas because that’s your thing, DO IT! Live your life according to you.
Growing up I used to think that I needed to fit in, rather than stand out. I tried hard to fit in but I wasn’t one of those girls, you know the ones I’m talking about. The so called “cool” girls who had lots of guys hanging around them who would do anything to be popular. I’m more of what they call the nerdy type. And when I stopped trying to fit in, I became more of the real me. That moment was when I transitioned into my power and made me a successful entrepreneur, author, creator and speaker.
I loved to read and learn and do stuff. I didn’t sit around and paint my nails or go shopping a lot. I played sports, read, traveled, created businesses, programs, workshops, art work and taught classes. I still do a lot of these things and it has helped me continue to be successful day in and day out on repeat.
Being aligned with what I love and who I am keeps me on my path, my journey, my road to a happy vibrant successful life on my terms. And the same is possible for you.
MY THIRD WORD: CREATION
Creation is what you were born to do. Creating makes you thrive. Creating is unique to you in whatever medium you choose. Creation is what you make.
Last year I did a lot of creation but I could have done more. I got caught up in being small and living small and shrinking because of fear, doubt, overwhelm and lack of clarity and focus. Sure I have an excuse, I was recovering from a car accident, but creating is what makes me happy and I wasn’t doing as much as I want.
So this year is going to be different. I love to create and that is what I will do more of.
