Information and Inspiration to Help YOU Step into Your Power
Motivational speakers talk a lot about action; take massive action, action, action, action. This implies that you must take action non-stop. Just do something, anything, towards your goal.
The empowered manifester knows that it is inspired action that counts.
Because inspired action works with the most powerful partner – the Universe – in perfect synchronicity.
There are several interpretations of the acronym FEAR, the most common being ‘False Evidence Appearing Real’. Personally, I prefer ‘False Expectations Appearing Real’.
Let me explain…
In most cases, our fears are not related to physical danger, they are internal fears – fear of failure, fear of success, fear of judgment, fear of rejection, etc.
‘Evidence’ implies that there is validity to your fear, that facts support it, but in most cases, there is no evidence; the fear is in your mind, it is imaginary.
‘Expectations’ are thoughts about what might happen in the future, which again are products of our imagination. They aren’t real.
Many Law of Attraction teachers promote affirmations as a way of giving attention to what you want to create by stating your intention as if it has already happened.
“I am healthy well and fit.”
“I am prosperous with unlimited abundance.”
“I am in a beautiful relationship with my perfect partner.”
One of the problems with this approach is that you’re engaging the left brain logical mind which often starts an internal argument that says “but that’s not true”. If you use affirmations to try to correct a limiting belief and to convince yourself that what you desire is possible, instead of helping the manifestation you will actually increase resistance to it and push it away.
Do you suffer from imposter syndrome? If you do you’re not alone!Even the most successful people can suffer from imposter syndrome.
According to Psychology Today, “The imposter syndrome is a psychological term referring to a pattern of behavior where people doubt their accomplishments and have a persistent, often internalized fear of being exposed as a fraud.”
No matter how many times other people praise us or our achievements, inside we reject this praise and think that if they REALLY knew us they wouldn’t like, admire or love us.
The word “empowerment” is used a lot in personal development circles but what does it really mean in practice?
I’ve put together a checklist for personal empowerment which, when followed, will enable you to embody the principles of empowerment in your everyday life. Some of these come from my own experience and others come from learning from other great teachers in fields of personal and spiritual development.
Letting go can be one of the hardest aspects of manifestation to master because when you have a strong desire for something you tend to want to control how it comes to you.
Think about the things that you manifest easily. You have an idea and then it happens without any real effort on your part. That’s because you have no inner resistance to having whatever it is. There are no limiting beliefs, doubts or fears attached to your idea.
One of the most admirable characteristics a person can possess is persistence. Without persistence, no great achievement is possible.
Everyone can set goals and make plans for success; however, only a few succeed in achieving their goals. Developing persistence is a way to ensure that you will reach your goals and achieve success.
Here are four practical ways that you can develop persistence and achieve your goals.
One of the biggest challenges that people have, when they want to achieve their goals and create success, is procrastination. I was watching a video by a well-known promoter of the Law of Attraction who was talking about why people suffer from procrastination and while he covered one of the underlying reasons for it (limiting beliefs), he missed an important factor in what causes procrastination. I have said many times that success is 80% mindset and 20% strategy which means that, to me, there are two major causes of procrastination. Let’s examine those two causes.
Why Appreciating Your Achievements is Important. You have probably achieved many things in your life. You should appreciate them. Many people don’t. They either dismiss their achievements or they’re so busy moving on to the next thing that they fail to celebrate them. If you do this, you need to stop. It can set up barriers to achieving more. Learn how to break down those barriers by recognizing and appreciating your achievements.
It’s widely recognized that performance coaches are essential for success in sport, but it is rarely acknowledged that people have coaches to help them succeed in business and when facing life challenges.
We look at people like Sir Richard Branson and other highly successful business people and think they did it alone and that they must have super-human qualities to have overcome all their challenges themselves. But, every one of them has expert advisors, mentors and supporters.
If you want to be really successful, you need to understand that few people achieve success on their own. We all need a support team around us.
