My mentor Bob Proctor would say - If you ask yourself the wrong questions you will always get the wrong answers.....
Have been thinking....you know, there are enough people using the "Holiday excuse" for taking steps toward their Goals for the next 2 weeks.
Already decided that instead of asking myself if I should continue taking the same steps toward my Project during the Holidays the question to ask is "What should I wear today for my appointment with the General Manager @?....."Oh, did I say appointment? Don't have one I just stop by to tell them about my Project.
The answer to that question was - It is easier for them to just say "NO" on the phone than in person.....and that answer is "I know that my FORTE is who I am as human being" so if they look me in the eyes they can read that very well,but they can't necessarily do the same before they say no on the phone...Right?
The moral is .....we all need to ask ourselves empowering questions, questions that will help us take our next steps from a positive feeling about ourselves by doing that we bring beautiful pictures on the screen of our MIND therefore we set our body in positive vibration,consequently actions will be based on that positive vibration and our RESULTS will be based on that as well....
You see, we think in pictures - If I ask you to think of your home - a picture of your home flashes on the screen of your Mind, if I ask you to think of your car the pic. of your home is gone and a pic. of your car flashes on the screen of your Mind....and we can decide what kind of pictures we bring on the screen of our Mind - we can bring pic. of lack and limitation or pic. or success and victory.
(There are a few Post prior to this where I explain in detail how we can control the way we feel.)
We take actions based on our ATTITUDE...(based on how we feel that day).....
What is Attitude anyways?
ATTITUDE is a Composite of : THOUGHT - FEELING AND ACTION = RESULTS
I other words the Results we are getting are based on our thoughts (The Pictures we bring on the screen of our Mind) - what kind of pic. do you bring on the screen of your Mind?
Start your New Year 2010 by creating the HABIT of using positive pic. about yourself - your RESULTS depend on your PICTURE.....
That takes us to a couple of very interesting subjects - SELF IMAGE and HABITS - will dissect those in our next Posts....
How do you sculpt your Moods?

Here are some STEPS to take now for a successful 2010 - "Create New Habits – Improve Results" in any area of life.
There are reasons why we keep getting the same Results over and over again even if we make a New Promise every year to loose weight,to be healthier,to start our own business or to improve our relationships.
The reasons are HABITS,CONDITIONING,BELIEFS and the truth is that regardless of how many promises, amendments we make it will not make a difference if the same Law-Breaker is to keep them.
To Change your Results you have to bang your head in a different wall...
In other words if we keep doing the same things will always get the same results, but in order to change our results we need to understand where we are and who we are.
Today let's talk a little about knowing where you are....
A personal Evaluation
Rate yourself in the following areas:
You never get a second chance to make a first impression
Dig deep into your feelings and find out what your ATTITUDES are.
Know where you are
On a scale of one to ten,how committed are you to your business?
What are you presently doing to improve your ability to sell whatever you are selling?
Your environment can have a tremendous effect on your income.
WHO DO YOU ASSOCIATE WITH?
If you have any questions related to our post please feel to ask / and if you have something to add to the list of things to improve for better results I would love to hear about them.

The difference between a career and a job is a mission.
When you change your thoughts you'll change your results,when you change the picture you hold on the screen of your Mind your results will change....
As we all know people who are successful in their lives are in love with what they do.They are on a "Mission".
The Law of Compensation:
The amount of money you will earn will always be in exact ratio to....
1. The need for what you do
2. Your ability to do it
3. The difficulty there will be to replace you
The first part of this law generally takes care of itself.There is always need for what we do - very rare occasions that the person has to leave the field they are in presently to earn the money they want.
So today lets dissect part 2 of the Law of Compensation...
Your ability to do it - Mastering this part of the law will raise your Results faster and higher that any other factor.
Self development should be on our agenda as one of the first things we do, we need to make that a daily habit.
And practice,practice,practice (makes perfect)....another important habit to create...
We don't have to sell to everyone but we have to tell everyone what we do.. so practice - place your dog on the chair and explain what you do/practice your presentation they are good listeners....
1. How effective are you at selling your product or service?
Rate yourself in the following areas:
Management of time
Let's compare notes tomorrow....
and then will get into - Knowing where You are -

Life should always be a learning experience...and as a passionate coach I must take it even further to better help the people I coach.
So what do I mean by that? One of my habits - as a coach is to always analyze daily self growth experiences and be able to translate that to clients so they can better apply the given information - (personal examples make great points).
Here's one of my recent ones..While doing a Presentation "Achieving your Goal by Creating New Habits" to a group of sales people a question came my way...sounded somewhat like this: What did you learn while approaching Car Dealerships as your New Project?
Well, I have to say learned a great deal about myself and my old belief that "I was not the greatest sales person in the World...."
So my very exited voice said ...I learned how to demonstrate to my "Self Image" that "I am a great sales person" and let me give you my way of reasoning with my Old Belief so you can do the same and apply it toward achieving your Goals in any area of life.
My entire life this little voice inside was whispering...you Lorena sales person? ha,ha,ha
you don't know how to sell....and of course being easier to believe the little voice than to get out of "Comfort Zone" we agree with the little voice...I mean really it was true for so many years why would it be different today right?
Then all of the sudden something changed and it was that day.....
What Changed?Well....my Attitude to begin with and then using my ability to Reason started looking at my strengths instead of looking at my(imaginary) weakness....and guess what I discovered?
I discovered that I could use my passion (to coach) people until a New Belief/New Habit is created....
Would you like to know what the little voice is proudly whispering today? ha....Lorena you are a good coach and you have the ability to direct any conversation in the direction you want it to go.... isn't that one of the qualities a good sales person has???? And over night I became a good sales person(in my own Mind)...
What are your beliefs about yourself that you focus on whenever you feel fear? Are you reminding yourself about all your achievements or your failures?
Starting today create a Habit of remembering all your Victories and remind your Self Image what a successful person you are over and over again....
Share your experience with us so we can all learn and grow.....

No major change in Results will happen until you do some work on UR self Image.
The sad part is that even after we have the ability to reason at this point we reason based on what our programing is.
But as adults we develop an understanding of our behaviour(why we do the things we do) and trough repetition we can create new habits,beliefs,we can change our conditioning.
Our Mind operates in an orderly manner, by Law.
Any thought repeatedly impressed on your subconscious Mind will become habit.
Once thoughts become habit they will continue to express themselves until you replace them.
So, give this a little thought....
For the next 2 days direct your attention at the importance of the type of thoughts and ideas you allow to occupy your Mind.
Awarness is the first step in changing any habits...
Please share your thoughts...

As we talked about it in previous posts MIND is an Activity it is NOT that Grey matter - and we can find it in every cell of our being.
This part of you is the most Magnificent.
This is the Power Centre.
Every thought your Conscious Mind chooses to accept, this part must accept - your Subconscious Mind has no power to REJECT.
This part operates "BY LAW"
This part of you expressed itself trough you, in feelings and actions.
And the 'Good' or could be the 'Scary" part about it comes now....
Any thought that we repeatedly choose to impress upon the Subconscious Mind becomes FIXED in this part of your personality.
THIS IS WHAT WE CALL A HABIT (Fixed Ideas) - and it be comes automatic - you are not giving it any thought any longer, and it will remain so until it is consciously 'REPLACED'
This is the REASON why we keep doing the same things over and over again therefore we keep getting the same results over and over again.
This is the God -like part of you known as SPIRIT and it knows NO LIMIT.
What have you been telling yours?
Please give me your point of view about Sub Conscious Mind and lets compare what we know.
Looking forward to learning from you.
Also if you feel I can help bring some clarity to your Mind and have any questions please feel free to ask.
Have a successful week.

To achieve any Major Goals in life we need to understand how Our Marvellous Mind work.
All Limitation is Originated in The Conscious Mind and it controls our RESULTS
There are 2 parts to the MIND:
- The Conscious Mind
- The Subconscious Mind
Today will be talking about the Conscious Mind -
So let me explain how our Conscious Mind works...
This is the part of you that Thinks, Reasons - your free will lies here.
As matter of fact this is the part of your Mind that you use to analyze the information I'm giving you right now.
This is the part of your Mind you use to accept or reject any new ideas.
Important to hear here that you have the power to choose what you accept as reality, you have the power to select from Ideas and information you hear around you at any time.
No person or circumstance can cause you to think about Ideas or thought that you do not choose.
The thought you choose eventually determine the RESULTS in your life (In any area of life).
All pleasure or pain is Originated in your Conscious Mind or accepted uncritically from an outside source.
Please share your experience below.
Sending good your Way

Just like every Corporation has a corporate Image - every person has a Self Image(What they think they can achieve)
Just like every Corporation has a corporate Image - every person has a Self Image(What they think they can achieve)
Dr. Maxwell Maltz said:
"We act,behave and feel according to what we consider our SELF IMAGE to be and we do not deviate from this pattern"
What is SELF IMAGE anyway?
Self Image is the result of Ideas about you that were planted in your Subconscious Mind...by other people....before you had the ability to think for yourself.It doesn't sound fare does it?
So again,each person has an Image in their Mind.As an example lets say this person is a sales person.Lets suppose this person sells $1.000.000 worth of insurance every year.
Do you know that any Company can tell you what their sales force is going to sell at the beginning of the year.
If they have a contest for writing so much business - do you know that they can book the seats on the plain at the beginning of the year.
And why is that?
It is because people very rarely deviate from the their set objective. If the Self Image picks up any deviation from the set objective - sends a signal to the nervous system and the person will start behaving the same way they did for their entire life.
This is the reason why we can not OUTPERFORM OUR SELF IMAGE!...
The sales person is just an example but it applies the same way to a student or any person on this planet in any area of life..
Only trough understanding and studying SELF major/lasting changes can be achieved.
This is the reason why motivation only lasts a short period of time,it is understanding of why we do what we do and everyday studying SELF is what will help you get MAJOR CHANGES IN YOUR RESULTS.
Do you know that our SELF IMAGE sets the boundaries in EVERY AREA OF OUR LIFE.
Dr. Maltz also said:
"The Image You hold of yourself is a premise,a base or a foundation upon which your entire personality is built.This Image not only control your behaviour it controls your circumstances as well"
A person who makes $60.000/year they don't make $60.000 because they want that, they make that because they are not aware of how to make $250.000, and it is not because that is their Potential. Our Potential is limitless
That's why studying self is so important- we will not achieve greater result in life until we understand how our Mind works.
Our Mind has two parts:
1. Conscious Mind
2. Subconscious Mind
To better understand how to control and direct our Mind we must have a deep understanding of how it works.Will take it one little step at the time in the next few weeks.
So, don't be disappointed with yourself if you set all kinds of Goals and you never achieve them.I mean you've been acting the way you do/you have the Habits and Beliefs you do since the day you were born.We can't just change that over night.Deep changes must happen for us to act different.And it starts with awareness, and you are doing just that.Be proud of yourself for realizing that there is something you can do to change the things you don't like.
Sending good energy your way.

So, what do I mean by this?
Maybe you never thought about this but we really think in pictures.
If I ask you to think of your house - a pic. of your house flashes on the screen of your Mind, now if I ask you to think of your car - the pic. of your car is gone and a pic. of your car flashes on the screen of your mind and the pic. of your house is gone. Right?
Why did I bring this up?
See, the pictures we hold on the screen of our Mind will influence the way we feel (vibration we are in) and that will influence the way we act - and automatically will reflect in our RESULTS.
Attitude is a composite of : Thought,Feeling and Action = RESULTS ( in all area of lifebusiness,personal,health)
Formulated a little different - In order for you to get great RESULTS IN YOUR LIFE you have to take ACTION from a POSITIVE FEELING
Nothing good can come out when we ACT from a NEGATIVE Vibration(Negative Attitude)...do we agree on this?
I have learned and have been practicing to IMMEDIATELY CHANGE my Attitude(feeling,vibration) if I consider it is a coming from a negative thought(picture).
Try it. I promise your RESULTS will immediately improve.
Ex:Be polite and nice to someone - they'll have no choice but to do the same in return you'll see...
So, our home work starting today is to notice our negative thoughts.....
Tomorrow will talk about how to replace them...
May you all have a very successful day.
Sunday, October 11, 2009
Do you have a definite purpose that guides your ambitions, vision, and goals? Something that will keep you going?
Because if you don't we we have to work on that.
So, let's start from the very beginning....
Before we can achieve any major Goal in life we have to have a Purpose do we agree on this?
If you fail to determine your definite purpose, everything else is wrong.
It is just like playing hokey without a net.
Without your Purpose identified firmly in your mind,you will just wander through life,you'll just go in circles.
So what is Purpose anyway?
Purpose gives meaning to WHY you’re doing what you’re doing.
Why we do what we do?
It’s time to sit down and have a serious truth session with yourself.
First thing we need to analyze is what do we believe about ourselves?
Do we entertain ANY negatives about ourselves, past or present,real or imagined.
You know negative images have been crowding our minds since our
first week on this planet.
Even our first school papers were marked in red slashes when we were “wrong.” That red mark drew our entire conscious attention...
We were "Wrong"....
Once we’ve found our purpose, how do we express it?
By creating and maintaining a vision.
Vision is what you do with your life.
Vision is the strategy behind the fulfillment of your purpose. You accomplish this strategy by creating several short-term goals to keep you on course....
Our home work for today:
Write down what do you believe about yourself and decide what is your Purpose.
Looking forward to your comments.
Have a phenomenal day everyone

It is always exciting to start a new Project,to start working toward a new Goal and even more exciting when there's new clarity,new tools to work with isn't it?
When we get to try something slightly different the anticipation is different because we ...
know that approaching something the same way over and over again will give us the same results,yet when we change some of the ingredients for sure some of our Results are going to be different.
So, when choosing a goal what do you think are the most important things to pay attention to?
Well, there are a few things we need to work around.
Most important of all I would say would be our Beliefs,our Paradigms.
And by that I mean what do we think we can achieve( or what is our level of awareness) - this has lots to do with our self Image and the barriers we and our loved ones place around ourselves.
Self Image = If you were raised with praises chances are you are very confident,if everything you ever did wrong was pointed out to you chances are that you are not.
Also very important I would say would be good old "FEAR" - and you probably are thinking...I'm not afraid.... well just think fear of failure and most people duck(what will people say if I try and I fail? Or even worse WHAT WILL I BELIEVE ABOUT MYSELF IF I FAIL?
Choose a goal that is big enough to be a stretch (because we need to get excited about achieving this new goal) but is not too big so it's too much of a stretch for your Mind.... that will stop you in your tracks before you even start and you'll come up with the best excuses why you can't possibly work toward your goal...today or tomorrow, etc.
Now,there are 2 kinds of goals: Emotional Goals and Logical Goals.
Emotional Goals - these are the kind of goals we are going to work hard toward.
Logical Goals - I say to sales people that choose Logical Goals-"You are gonna to raise skinny kids"
If someones Goal is- to lose 2o Lb.- now how exciting is that???? people think diet,starving themselves,running for 1 h. everyday etc. ....who do you think is going to look forward to that?
Yet, if we formulate the Goal something like this -Goal - to be fit by December 25 when I'm going on a 2 week hiking trip in the Alps with my friends - now that is more something to look forward to.
In other words our Goal needs to be something worth failing for.....something we get emotionally involved with.
In a later post I'll talk to you about how we need to have our Goals in the present tense.
Something else that would make a huge difference if you achieve your Goal or not,would be to ask for advise, but not from your neighbour or your mom but from experts.
Look at this scenario - You would like to get in shape but you didn't work out in 15 years and January is here - so you grab your gym bag and...you get there and you are intimidated by the big steroid head guy and you have no idea how to use the machines or what exercises to do/ what amount of wight to use. So you make the wise decision to start with 1 h. running on the Treadmill or even if you insist on doing a workout with weights but you have no idea of the intensity of a bagginess work out - what is going to happen?
1. You are going to be very,very,very sore the next day - so you don't want to work out anymore
2. Embarrassed because you have no idea how to use the machines or other excuses....
This is the reason why by Jan. 15 the GYM is empty..
Other Example: Your current Income is $75.000/year now to set a Goal for your next months income to be $1.000.000 that is a big jump.
Most people s Conscious Mind will have a hard time accepting this new Income we know that right?
But don't worry will have a great understanding how our Conscious Mind works by the end of this Project.
We'll pick it up from here in our next post. There is so much to learn about Habits,Beliefs,Goals that we have something to learn for the rest of our lives and that is the idea - never stop to learn and grow.
Please feel free to ask any related questions would be my pleasure to give you my point of view and also please give us your examples or your point of view so everybody can learn something new.
If you would like a little help formulating your Goal please send me an e-mail email@example.com and pls. let me know you sent me one
Looking forward to your comments and success.

As I was preparing for my Blog post series on Habit Changing/Creating I thought that I could help you more if we actually all choose a goal and we apply all the knowledge,all the information I will be sharing with you for the next month towards achieving our GOAL...
What do you think about that?
I was thinking...I'm giving you all this great content but I don't give you the tools and show you how to use them, it's like I'm doing a half job.
Just like that saying"Give the man a fish and you feed him today..."
So let's do it together.
I think everyone would benefit so much more from the new knowledge if we learn how to apply it together. Working as a team is much more powerful than working alone.
You know in business or in any area of life nothing worthwhile ever happens with one person acting alone.It always takes a team effort.
So, we can all choose a Goal, including me It's my Birth Day-Month so I have a special Goal in Mind.
If you would like to share with us what your Goal is great,if you just want to join the Challenge that is great too, would love to have you here, the more good creative energy together the better.
I'm thinking to create some videos as well and some other little surprises to make it more fun and more educative.
In my next Blog post I will talk about how to choose a goal that is big enough to be a stretch (because we need to get excited about achieving this new goal) but is not too big so it's too much of a stretch for your Mind.... that will stop you in your tracks and you'll come up with the best excuses why you can't possibly work toward your goal...today or tomorrow, etc.
Here to help you with your excuses...and please just give me the excuses you would like to keep.
I'll help you with the rest...
So think about a goal you would like to work toward and post your name bellow or if you are shy for now just start and you can give us your name latter if you'd like.
Same with the Goal you choose to achieve, you can tell about it now or latter or just do it anyway it would be my pleasure to guide you.
Sending love your way everyone.
I'm so excited about this new Goal Achieving Challenge and learning how to create new Habits.

Today, I would like to make 2 very powerful points.,so I'll keep the post short and I'll invite you to read it a few times. This two points are vitally important to your success.
I would like to point out that reading something and understanding something are two very different activities.Do we agree on that?
We only understand something when we can explain it to someone else so they can understand it.
Do you know that the better you understand yourself the better your results are going to get?
So take the lid off your Marvelous Mind....
Mind is an activity it is not that gray matter....and we can find it in every cell of our being...
So Mind is an activity and Body is the manifestation of that activity.
So to create success we need to develop an image and place the image in our Mind.
Tell you a little secret...everything we need is already here it is just a matter of learning how to use it.
The main difference between real achievers and non achievers is "HABIT" therefore pretty Important to learn about best way to create,change and keep the new "Habits" by understanding more about our marvelous Mind.
And another most important aspect in your success would be ENVIRONMENT, the people you surround yourself with are more important to your success or well being than what is built right into your genes at birth.
Whenever you do something or take advise from make sure that the people you talk to, you surround yourself with are successful.
If we think about it we talk and behave just like the people we spend most time with....have you thought about that?
You could choose this to be your first home work - start surrounding yourself with successful people.
Next post will learn about our Conscious Mind in the process of Habit creating.
Sending lots of positive energy your way.
If you have any questions please ask and it would be my pleasure to give you my point of view.
Monday, September 28, 2009
I think a lot of people understand the importance of Habits in our life and how they relate to our success in any area of life.
But I don't know how many people know enough about one of the key parts /most important parts in the process of Changing /Creating a new Habit.
I'm talking about our Mind....
Do you know that Mind is an activity it is not that grey matter...(A lot of people when I ask if they know what Mind is think about the brain)....
Mind is activity not a thing......
The type of thoughts and ideas which occupy your consciousness is of Paramount importance in developing Prosperity in your life.
Your Mind is either in an orderly or a confused state.
Order must prevail in your Mind if you ever hope to see it manifest in your material world.
There are two parts to the Mind.
1. Is our Conscious Mind
2. Is our Sub-conscious Mind
You'll see how fascinating it is to have a clear understanding of how each of then play a major role in our life...and most important how we can direct and control our Mind and therefor the direction we take in our life once we understand about this power....
In our next post will talk about our Conscious Mind in more detail.
So excited to share this information with you.
What do you know about the mind?
Please ask any questions you might have related to Habit Changing or the Mind so we can look at it from different points of view and have a better understanding of how we can make our way faster towards where we are going in life.
Have a Phenomenal day everyone.

So what are paradigms anyway?
I mean how are we going to shake them if we don't know what they are right?
Paradigms are a multitude of Habits.
And the scary part is...that they are other people's Habits....that we inherited from our family,friends and authority figures in our life...
....and they are the reason we keep getting the same RESULTS in life because we get results in every area of our life right? We get results in our health,business,relationships etc. so it is kind of important to really understand what they are.
My mentor Bob Proctor has a very good explanation to how we act when it comes to Results.
He would say: "The clearest sign of insanity is when we keep doing the same thing and we expect different Results"
Isn't that the truth?
How many times we end up in the same argument with a loved one 2,3...10 years later?
Why does that happen?
Well, maybe because we don't change our approach to how we interact with that person and we always get stuck in the same place, just like the week before. Don't you think so?
Same thing applies to being more successful in our business....if we don't change our approach how are we going to get different results???
There's lots to talk about on this subject so we can continue in next post.
To change our Results we need to have a clear understanding of things - It is not an easy thing to do.I mean most of us need help with that.
To be more specific even a coach needs a coach....otherwise who is going to challenge my beliefs?
How am I going to grow if I don't start to do things differently?
Would really appreciate your thoughts.
Let's learn from each other.
Monday, September 21, 2009
If they are giving us great results obviously we need to keep them,but if they just take us in circles we definitely need to change them...Make sens doesn't it?Yes, it does but not that simple.Most people need help with that.
First we need to ask ourselves if our good old habits/belief still serve us, and the only way we can get a good answer to this question is if we have a written Purpose,Vision,Goals so we actually know where we are going.
How are we going to get there if we don't know where we are going right?
I was asked today: So how do you decide what new habit you want to create?Very important, we got to ask ourselves the right questions...
If we ask ourselves the wrong questions we will always get the wrong answers.
- Where am I going in life?(What do I want to achieve?)
- What is the one habit I can add/change today that will take me toward my Purpose faster?
- What is the one thing that I don't feel good about and just sits on my shoulders?
Example:Couple of years ago I realized I was doing exactly what I used to hate my mother doing...nagging people I loved (we copy our parents behaviour and we call it a HABIT)
Wasn't giving me great results aider....
So recognized I was doing it - Made a conscious decision I wanted to change that - It was hard work at first to just mind my own business but trough repetition I changed/created a new HABIT.
Obviously this was one example but we can apply the same method to anything in life,to our business,our health,relationships etc.
Repetition is the key to changing any Habit.
We created our old Habits trough repetition they become automatic, and the same way we create new ones.
What New Habit did you create?LH

I wouldn't mind going to one of his presentation every weekend,what an experience.If you do have a chance to listen to Randy do not miss the opportunity!
Just back from a phenomenal workshop in Florida with Randy Gage..Workshop on Social Media and in my case also refining my speaking skills(lots to learn from one of my favorite people).
One of the things I like about the man and I'm working myself on polishing for my platform speaking is ability to make great points with humor and fun sarcasm(being born in Transylvania I appreciate and relate to his sarcasm probably even more than most people) in my opinion one gets a lesson in prosperity,self awareness,self image with every phrase.
I think Randy's approach works so well because people like to learn but they don't like to be taught....
My Mind has been analyzing every part of the 3 hours......Quite a few lessons I learned I have to say, and I'll share some of them with you.
So, "The Man" walked in, and you knew he did....actually you felt he did.He brought with himself the energy that totalled and surpassed the energy of all the people in the room (I'm very much a feel people's energy kind of person)then once he walked in the very next thing I noticed ware his eyes.One of his powerful assets are definitely his eyes....of course he has plenty others but you meet his eyes first.
If you have ever been to a presentation by the"Jedi Knight" for sure you have learned that everything he said he confirmed with the intensity in his eyes and backed it up with the wisdom that resides behind them.
So,what did I read in Randy's eyes that I think every entrepreneur or leader needs to know?
First word that comes to mind to describe Randy's eyes is "SINCERITY" a lot of honesty and warmth in this man's eyes and I believe that is the foundation to becoming a great Leader.
If you are a Leader of a team YOU HAVE TO KNOW that the people you are leading are afraid (everybody is afraid of something) and communicating trust and helping them believe in themselves is essential for your business and it all starts in YOUR eyes....
Randy looks at you with his heart and soul there's no room for doubt and even more than that I felt his willingness to be vulnerable so he can help everyone around him feel comfortable and open minded.
I promise you only a great human being will allow himself to be vulnerable so he can help other people grow at a deeper level.It does require a special person....and that he is.
So what do you see in Randy's eyes?
Cary Grant once said : I acted like Cary Grant for so long I became him....
Please share what did you see in Randy's behaviour that you think is worth copying?Or what did you hear him say he does that is worth doing and you know it will shorten our road to success in any area of our life?
I can't stress enough how important it is to copy behaviour of successful people.To do what they do.
And just because you stoped by I'll give you one more piece of the Randy Gage's puzzle that I KNOW is worth applying to your life and that will get you to wherever you are going much sooner and that is....DISCIPLINE.
P.S. Randy this is my way of thanking you for a wonderful experience.My respect toward you grew exponentially.....And how does that go again?Mad love to you or something like that??

Today is the best day to stop the noise in our head and start taking control of how we use our MIND.
Today is the best day to stop the noise in our head and start taking control of how we use our MIND.
As my mentor Bob Proctor very often affirms:
2% of people think
3% of people think they think and
95% of people would rather die than think
Most people only think when they are in a life and death situation and use their mind the rest of the time only to go back in the past and remember what happened "then".... and that would not be such a bad thing either if they would go back and remember all their accomplishments all the times they were victorious.
When we use our mind to remember all our failures and every bad memory we had since the day we were born and how that mean person "made us feel" last week all we do is hurt ourselves over and over again,we deepen our fears and most important we chip at our Self Image(not even talking about how we hurt the people around us).
Nothing creative could come out of using our Mind in this manner.
Turning the information we have in our mind around and around can not be called thinking.
Taking control of our thoughts and coming up with a Purpose,Vision,Goals for our life is how thinking begins.
How are you using your mind?What are your thoughts?Is your mind controlling you or vice-versa?
Would be good to give it some serious thought for the next few days. Your results in every area of your life will remain the same for many years to come if you don't take control of your thoughts and start directing them toward where you want to go in life.
Next post will talk about first step to control and direct our thinking.
Have a phenomenal day beautiful people

You ask and you receive...you ask for the wrong thing it will be delivered right on schedule...
The doubt you hold becomes the picture which will turn into your physical results...
When you bulid a picture you control from the inside you do not control from the outside, regardless of the circumstances of your present results.
How do you start?
You start with FAITH!
Clarence S. said: "Faith is the ability to see the invisible."
There is a power in every cell of your being that operates in a totally deductive manner it will take whatever image you impress upon it and it will move you in the vibration you have to be in, to act the way you have to act,to attract what you have to attract for the manifestation of the image that you chose to build.
Successful people have Faith in themselves, they believe they can achieve whatever they set their Mind to achieve.
Very few people realize just how much Faith in oneself has to do with your achievement.
Majority on people never seem to understand that Faith is a genuine Creative Force.
Faith is the greatest power you'll ever encounter.
Post your thoughts.
Have a Phenomenal day.

What is Self-Image anyway?
The Self Image is the result of Ideas about you that were planted in your Subconscious Mind...by other people....before you had the ability to think for yourself.
If you were raised with praise,chances are you will be very confident.
If you were raised with criticism where everything you ever did wrong was pointed out to you,chances are you will be very insecure.
Doesn't sound fair does it?
But that's the way it works.
Paradigm is the word that we use to describe all these ideas that are fixed in the Subconscious Mind. (will talk in detail about Paradigm in a next post) .
For now we need to know that our Paradigm controls our life.
Dr. Maltz explains that : We act,behave and feel according to what we consider our Self-Image to be and we do not deviate from this pattern.
The Image you hold of yourself is a premise, a base or a foundation upon your entire personality is built.
This Image not only controls your behaviour it controls your circumstances as well.....
Would love to hear about your experiences and understanding of Self Image.
May only good things happen to you all.

Intuition or...Not? in his great Blog Post http://bit.ly/OMddj
To really make a good point a had to get into it deeper so this is more like a "Lunch or and Learn Presentation" than Blog post.
The Conscious Mind
We were all blessed with intellectual factors (OR MENTAL MUSCLES) and they are:
1. REASON - THINKING- the way we explain things to ourselves
2. WILL - Our power to focus on something
3. PERCEPTION - The way you see something, point of view
4. MEMORY - We can use our Memory to remember all Our Failures or all Our SUCCESSES
5. IMAGINATION - Napoleon Hill said: this is the most marvelous miraculous inconceivably powerful force that the World has ever known.
6. INTUITION-Our intuitive factor - It is what we feel about a person or a situation.
This is the part that picks up other peoples vibration,their feelings - the more we develop this faculty we can pick up on other ppl. feelings or what other people are thinking - most ppl. say one thing and think another, the more we develop it we can pick up their thoughts - we can eventually get to the point where you are not going to pay a lot of attention to the words people are using you are going to be more tuned in to what they mean by what they say or what they are thinking.
Did it ever happened to you that you walked into a room full of people and you thought .."I don't have a good feeling about this person.....?" that is Our INTUITION or let's say Have you ever entered a room and you felt the people in the room were talking about you.... ?that is INTUITION again.
Also very important to know that Intuition is like a mental muscle...so you cant train it,the more you use it the more you develop it.
I can tell you that it is fascinating to read between the lines and see where people are stuck and what Believes drives them....fascinating....This is one of the reasons i became a coach.
These Mental Faculties (Intellectual Factors) are in Our Conscious Mind they are our Creative Faculties as a matter of fact these are the Faculties that separate us from the rest of the Animal Kingdom.
In the Play " Secret of Freedom" Archibald M. said The only thing about a man that is a man is his Mind everything else you can find in a pig or a horse.
It is these Mental Faculties that give us Our creative Ability it is Our Mental Faculties that Build the image of Our Goal of wherever you want to go...this is why you can sit in a totally relaxed state and Build an Image of anything you want.
Next Paragraph I dedicate to one of my favorite people @Randy_Gage because I know he likes
Classical music Concerts.
Liberace rented a piano got all dressed up in Tuxedo and he sat and went trough an entire Concert and there wasn't a soul in the room with exception of himself. After each number he played he stood up and bowed to an imaginary audience. He understood the power of an Image,of Imagination and he built an Image and he lived as it was real and it did become REAL
IF YOU CAN HOLD IT IN YOUR HEAD YOU CAN HOLD IT IN YOUR HAND.
Hope you enjoy.
There's lots to talk about on this subject.
If you have any questions would be my pleasure to give you my point of view.
Also would be interested to hear yours.
Sending good energy your way.

Being more successful in any area of your life be that Professional Life or Personal life requires Conscious Decision,Conscious and Constant Work. Doesn't happen over night!
Even when we make a DECISION to Change ourselves,how we do things or our ATTITUDE, our SUBCONSCIOUS MIND is Programed since childhood (by the age of 7 we are Programed to Do,to Believe and to Act exactly like the people in our ENVIRONMENT).....How do you like that???
Why do you think sometimes you scare yourself because YOU ACT JUST like your mother or your father?
Do you remember your mother screaming in the kitchen..You are just like your father or DO what your older brother is doing...?
Until the age of 6-7 we have no ability to REASON so everything that happens around us goes UN screened by our Conscious Mind straight to our Subconscious and it becomes a HABIT, A BELIEF... PARADIGM.
Now around age 7 when we start to REASON ....listen to this - WE REASON BASED ON WHAT IS ALREADY THERE,BASED ON OUR PROGRAMING...
The reason I explained all this is for you to understand that OUR PROGRAMING, BELIEFS,HABITS are rooted very deep, and we have been acting a certain way for so many YEARS - don't think You are going to change all that over night... EVEN WITH BEST INTENTIONS.
This is the reason why when you make a commitment at the beginning of the year to exercise or to start eating better you fail after a week or two...
Most of us need help to CHANGE or CREATE A NEW HABIT...It requires CONSCIOUS AND CONSTANT WORK.
Started a 30 Day Habit Changing/ Adding Challenge. Choose 1 Habit you think would accelerate your steps towards achieving your Goal - Lets work as a Team is more Powerful...
We can support each other.
Choose one Habit you commit to do everyday for next 30 Days and just send me a Tweet with the words DONE....
See you soon

ONE CAN NOT GET NEW RESULTS WITH OLD HABITS....
Please repeat that to yourself for the next 21 Days or until you get it...
It is so fascinating to me how some of the people I know continue having the same "Discussion" or the same "Arguments" 4,5,10..years later and people get more and more hurt, angry and depressed.
Yet many people I don't think understand that if they continue approaching something the same way they are Definitely going to get the same Results.
Please understand : Nothing Changes = Nothing Changes
Or as my Mentor Bob Proctor would say: The clearest sign of insanity is when you try to do the same thing and expect a different RESULT'''
Same applies to business, if we continue doing business the same way we did business 2,3,10 years ago we are gonna get hurt..
Why do we get the same Results, same arguments?
Well ,maybe because we forgot to change at least one ingredient, one Habit,one Belief so the CIRCLE of Life continues undisturbed... (we think) but it all effects us more than you'll ever know.
Why do we do the things we do Day after day after Day??
Because WE are in a Habit of doing them they don't require any thought any longer...
It's too comfortable why would we put any effort in changing anything that requires work and dedication and commitment and time....
I'll tell you it may be comfortable BUT IT'S A BAD SPOT...
To change a habit requires special attention and a lot of repetition but it is ESSENTIAL for anything in our life to change....
Next time we can talk about where to start...

You see every Action we take is based on how we feel....
The vibration we are in causes us to FEEL the way we feel and that starts with the thoughts we entertain.
If our thought are negative,we are in a negative vibration,we don't feel very good therefore our ACTIONS can only be based on Negative feelings...How do you think your RESULTS will be?
On the other hand if your thoughts are POSITIVE,you Feel and ACT POSITIVE and your Results ...you give me the answer.
Our thoughts are based on the pictures we bring on the screen of OUR MIND.
And how do we do that?
Find out in my next post.
Wishing you a Phenomenal day.

Listening to people interact,more and more got to the understanding that most people do not know they do more harm that good when having a conversation...That goes both for business relationships and Personal.
How to begin? Well first step before you open your mouth ask yourself : What do I want to achieve by having this conversation?What is my goal?
Do I want to make a difference?
Do I want to make a good point and have the person in front of me interact with me a little different next time around?
Or do I just want to be an ass,hurt the person in front of me,make them feel worse than they did before the conversation and me just spit out whatever was bothering me(and ad some spice by bringing some of my previous anger into this conversation as well).......
We can always choose...
Do you know there is one major difference between human beings and animals?
And the difference is that us human beings we have the ability to choose,the ability to direct ourselves in life,the ability to think....
There is a nice saying that I really like... The only thing that separates us from the other animals is OUR MIND everything else you can find in a Pig or a Horse....
YOU SEE - Our BODY is an instrument of our MIND...
Do you direct and control your MIND?
Because IF YOU ARE NOT IT CONTROLS YOU... and most important it controls YOUR ACTIONS and therefore YOUR RESULTS....
Interesting....do you think so too?
Will get into it deeper in couple of days...
All the best to you

Letting go of anger and all the wrong that was done to you from the day you were born and focusing on all the good things,all the successes and the achievements you had in life will take you in a completely different direction in life 1,2,3...5-10 years from now.
Being in that kind of vibration can only attract to you more of the same.......
The only person that we hurt by not letting go of our anger is ourselves.
Till next time monitor your thoughts...
Let me know if there is a way I can support you, it will be my pleasure.
May only good things happen to you.
Love it or not leave a comment please....

Do you find this as interesting as I do?
It looks like people on Twitter can always find positive things to say, we share good information,learning new skills,working on Self Development,we focus on moving forward in life regardless of "The Economy"I feel good.Just radiating positive Energy!
But take 2 minutes and read the Titles in "The News" and feel down, sad and defeated.
"Which one should I choose?"
It happens to everybody,Unfortunately many times we are not even aware how things we read or hear can change the vibration we are in therefore setting the pace for our RESULTS in Life.
In the last couple of years I have been studying "The Mind", working on Self Improvement,walking away from "Victim-hood Mentality" still lots to do but at least I recognize it and work hard to minimize it.
You know, we learn all our Beliefs and Habits(good or bad) from people we trust and respect - authority figures in our life so the logical thing to do to get rid of some of the bad Habits and learn some new Good Habits and Beliefs by finding new people we trust, NO?
But sometimes it seams that we just listen to ANYONE who is willing to give us advice, it doesn't even accrue to us that we SHOULD and CAN choose the people we take advice from,people we follow.
So my suggestion would be... before you take advice from someone ask yourself: Does this person know what they are talking about?
Find a few people that achieved the results you would like to achieve in life and then "COPY" , learn from them.,do what they do,mastermind with successful people.
"It is the only way to change the direction you go in Life"- YOUR Life
Sending positive vibes your way.

In your heart, what do you Believe it's possible for you to achieve in the next year?Let's mastermind!
Then sit down and really analyze your "beliefs".
Listening to my mentor today made me realize how important it is to constantly reevaluate our beliefs. Thank you Paul.
Having someone you trust, challenge your old beliefs on regular bases will help you walk faster towards your goals.
Remember, what you believe you can achieve is based on the evaluation of something and you really need to know what that something is.
Take some time today and think.
1. In your heart, what do you believe it's possible for you to achieve in the next year?
2. Why do you believe this is possible for you?
Let's grow together.Ford knew this is the Key to success.
Have a phenomenal day.
Talk to you soon.

Start working towards your "Success"in any area of your life
Last couple of days I had some rejuvenating conversations with a sweet friend of mine.Probably this subject will help many others find their purpose in life.
How do we define success?
Success Is finding the circumstances necessary for advancing in the diction of our goals but most important if we can't find them we go out and create the circumstances we need.
Success is getting things done.
Success is energy, a certain group of thought that form an idea.
Success is energy in the most organized state of vibration that motivates people to take action - Positive or Negative action depending on our environment,our knowledge or our ability to direct ourselves in life.
Tomorrow we can debate what does it take to start working towards being "Successful".
Please bring on your challenge.
Hope to find you reading here tomorrow.
Have a blessed and Successful day.
From the bottom of my hearth.

What is it that motivates people to do the things they do, to say the things they say and to achieve the things they achieve?
Our genetic structure makes up a lot of what we believe and a lot of what we are but not near as important as our environment
The outside world is the predominant influence of what we are or what we become.
Most people make this decision unconsciously.
Successful people make this choice consciously, they choose the people they associate with, they chose their friends carefully.
Now when it comes to family it's a little harder. But as my mentor very often said "Just don't go so often and don't stay too long".
Do you choose the people you surround yourself with?
You see "Success" is energy in the most organized state of vibration.
So , your home work starting today make a conscious decision to surround yourself with successful people.
Have questions challenge me....
Talk to you soon.

No, if we want to be in the same place 20 years from now.
Just being comfortable in life is a bad spot.
Lets be honest, to advance in life we have to change some of our most cherished beliefs and habits.
Habits are things we do automatically without giving them any conscious thought.
Most people tip-toe trough life hoping they are gonna make it safely to death!!!
Think about it please! This is not a practice run. It's not like we just need to learn how to do it perfectly and then we can come back and do it. No,no,no..... THIS IS IT FOLKS. We only have one shot at it.
So be opened minded,learn something new everyday,change some of your not so good habits and beliefs, TAKE RISKS (that's what keeps us alive). Do not follow the "Herd", be you and do what you love the most,be with people you love and surround yourself with positive people.
Change one habit you think doesn't serve you today and please let me know about it.
Hope to meet you here again.
Leave a message if you like what you hear. Or challenge me with your thought provoking questions.
Have a successful day.

Doing the same thing and EXPECTING DIFFERENT RESULTS-You have the power to decide where you will be 1,5,10 years from now
Changed Attitude = Changed RESULTS
One clear sign of insanity is to keep doing the same thing and EXPECTING DIFFERENT RESULTS.
What is attitude anyways?
Very simply said ATTITUDE is the composite of Thought, Feeling and Action.
First and most important to understand is that we think in pictures!
Think of something and a picture of that particular thing flashes on the screen of your mind(in front of your eyes).
As Human beings we have the ability to choose our thoughts. We can think negative thoughts, that will keep our body in a negative vibration or we can bring positive pictures on the screen of our mind and set our body in POSITIVE vibration. It's up to US.
So to take this further when We think Positive we set our body in a positive vibration(we feel positive) so the Actions we take that day are Positive.
``Thought of The Day``- as soon as you feel you are in a negative vibration bring all kind of positive pictures to your mind and I promise your RESULTS THAT DAY will be positive. I challenge you to try for today.
Next time we`ll talk about habits and beliefs.
May only good thing happen to you today.

We have to know that we will achieve our goals!!!
How can we do that? Knowledge!
We must study, learn about ourselves, learn something new every single day, we must give ourselves task and achieve them everyday.
Very Important: Please read the next phrase a few times.
One very important part of the puzzle is to surround yourself with successful people,goal achievers.
Form a MASTERMIND GROUP. The people you surround yourself with are more important to your success than your genetics.
Talk to you soon.

Media is programing us 24/7 with lack and limitation, with...why things can't be done in this economy,etc.We can choose to create our own economy.
Opportunity can be found even when the economy seems to be sliding, we are empowered with our own thought process our own conscious awareness to do, be and have what we want in life.
We have the power to switch our thinking around and come up with creative ideas.
When you are excited and have good energy, believe in yourself people are attracted to you because you are a bright bulb.
First step - as soon as you wake up start thinking about something positive,something that makes you smile,start your day by being grateful for everything positive that happened in your life yesterday.
Next time time will talk about our marvellous mind.
Have a phenomenal day, you have the power to do so.
