Have You Lowered Your Ceiling?

img_1149

Have you given yourself enough headroom to grow?  Sometimes we sabotage our own success by having a low ceiling. What do I mean by that?

Well have you allowed yourself to dream? And not just in a half-hearted daydream whilst on the tube waiting to arrive at your destination. But made an honest and considered connection with your heart. A real exercise of the heart and mind. Perhaps you are a bit scared to explore and examine your heart to find out what your real hopes and dreams and goals are in life. What you would really like to do; to be? Perhaps the all too familiar ‘reality – check’ (whatever that really means) wafts in unannounced into your soul-searching exercise, and automatically you hit your head on that lowered ceiling.

We’ve all done this right? Sure I know I have a million times! But not anymore.

Why have a ceiling anyway? In fact, the truth is, there is NO ceiling! Well, not unless you choose to put it there.IMG_1150

You may have heard this already. We really can change our view of our lives and abilities by changing our thoughts. Give yourself the headroom to grow. Loosen the pegs of your tent, if you like. A wiser man once said, ‘If you can conceive it, you can achieve it’. Let the light of possibility into your life.  Let the sky be your lower limit. https://youtu.be/jiOd2u3FD-s

The Freedom To Choose

What is it about choice and freedom that we crave so much? Is it because for many of us ‘choice’ means ‘control’? And we want to have more control over the direction of our lives? Perhaps. Could it be that freedom and choice are yardsticks for success in many western countries, and something that we would wish for our children and young people as they journey in life? Well you might say that freedom and choice are fundamental rights that should be protected and respected? I think of young girls and women who find themselves being exploited, trafficked or married before puberty. I think of children born into poverty, with no opportunity to go to school and have to work in child labour to earn something, however small for the family to eat. I think of children who are homeless and living on the streets, and those without parents or significant people to offer love and support unconditionally. Of course in a spiritual sense, it could be said that freedom and choice is misunderstood, and true freedom comes from choosing to submit and surrender one’s life to our Maker, who’s love and guidance will ultimately lead us to find and achieve our truest purpose and innermost desires which actually is what we secretly wanted all along, but we just couldn’t recognise or articulate it. So what is my message today? Well, I’m not sure. Yes I know that a 300 word blog is not necessarily the best place to get all deep and meaningful…. but this is on my mind and I want to reflect on the fact that many of us have such rich and abundant lives with an untapped power within us to do amazing and awesome things; to impact the world one life at a time and one day at a time. How will you choose to live your life?  What are you going to bring to the table? How will you choose to present the Gift that you are to the world? Can you feel the greatness within you? Can you choose to do what you love trusting that this is often a step in the right direction towards finding that greatness within you? Can you take the next step towards doing what you love? Life is a journey and you can choose your next step. I am excited to be sharing my journey with you. Will you share your journey with me?

What An Exciting Path!!!

So I’m feeling incredibly inspired and uplifted after an amazing 3 days with a room full of men and women who are completely on my wavelength! It really is amazing what can happen to you and others when you come together with a group of like-minded people and learn, laugh, cry, dance, share and basically feel deeply together. It’s like there is this invisible connection between us all, some sort of weird sci-fi stuff from ‘The Matrix’ where we are all feeding off each other’s energy; vibrations; excitement; hopes and dreams; and this natural empathy develops and you get talking about the more serious stuff – the fear of failure; the pain of an unsupportive spouse; the inability to release the guilt you feel for ….well a myriad of reasons; the similarity in our different mini-hero journeys;  the ability to overcome challenges and  the readiness to embrace a changed and brighter more exciting future on the horizon.

The interesting thing about Network Marketing Professionals, is that we all come from different backgrounds, different careers and skills, and really, you have to learn a whole new set of skills, in order to be an effective entrepreneur, and to help others do the same and support them in achieving their goals.

One of the interesting areas of learning, which many of us may not have  come across in our traditional careers, is the importance of cultivating the right mindset. Learning the right habits that serve to strengthen your mindset, to focus on positive self-talk, learning how to choose those emotions that will serve you and changing your emotional state in an instant, and learning how to work smartly, focusing on those tessa-with-dave-smiling

income producing activities to the exclusion of all distractions, and developing a vision so clear, and so big, that it excites you and energises you. All this I am learning from a very dedicated and talented man named Dave OConnor, and his work with Carla Reiger, as part of the Network Marketing Leadership Academy (NMLA). Very exciting. Very cool. Full of fun! Check out www.daveoconnoronline.com

However, the friendships that I am making along the way, along this exciting path is really what this is all about – enjoying the journey, and learning how to be the best version of you.

Oh Rocky Road……..

12421817_1819123491648553_1537614005_nSo the new year is here, the excitement is building and there are so many great adventures on the horizon! As you embrace this exciting newness, and feel full of hope, you start to feel differently, lighter somehow, with a bit of a hop, skip and jump built into your stride. This may not be very visible to others, however they can see your smile, your joy, your effervesence and your happiness. You are oozing and overflowing with hope and possibility, and it shows! Your inner glow is beaming out to the world and you are feeling EPIC……..but sometimes those closest to you don’t see what you see, and don’t feel what you feel and perhaps are a little ‘miffed’ that you seem so happy, especially when they are not. You start to feel a little jaded, and perhaps start to pretend, or suppress your excitement, letting it out again when no one is looking.

So what if this new adventure is your new business? You are so excited, and your business is taking off and gaining momentum, yet your friends and family don’t understand, and think you’re crazy for getting involved. Worse still, they inadvertently put you down, and make jokes about you because this warped banter is somehow acceptable when you are the topic of conversation.

This, my friends, is the Rocky Road of the Entrepreneur. Get used to it. The best way to deal with it? Believe in yourself. Believe in your purpose. Don’t hide your light under a bushel just to make other people feel better about themselves. Build your resilience. Spend time with like-minded people, those who want to see you excel and believe in you. They will lift you higher, when you need it most. Your truth is enough. Be strong and in time you will develop a thick skin. You will need it as the Rocky Road is unchanging. What changes is your ability to change how you respond to the negativity and see your way through to a brighter place. Focus on doing what you need to do, to get you to where you want to be. Always be thankful. Smile.

Year By Year I’m Getting Better and Better…

20160227_021116000_iOS‘Day by day in every way I’m getting better and better’, as stated by the wonderful Emil Coue, is a ‘mantra’ that really describes me and my journey over the last year. I’m so excited about 2017! I am having an awakening, just as the little girl in the film ‘Miracle on 34th Street’ had when she started to entertain the possibility that Santa Claus might exist. I do feel somewhat ashamed… in the last two months I have made little effort to stop and smell the roses. Too busy being busy perhaps? Oh dear.. well I hope not, and that will certainly have to change if it really IS the case! With two days left to the end of the year and the start of 2017, I really am excited. How do you feel?

Have I achieved all my goals? No, not all. But boy have I grown as a person along the way. Year by year I am getting better and better!!! It’s a funny feeling when you take the time to look back on your activities over the past year, and you discover that you have taken both giant steps and baby steps along your path, and the realisation dawns that you are not the person you once was. You are a new and improved you! That you have taken many steps outside of your comfort zone, and no longer feel concerned about being a ‘people-pleaser’  And looking back, I wouldn’t change anything, as it is all part of who I have become today, now.

As I prepare to refresh my vision board with renewed goals for 2017, I am full of gratitude for the journey I am on; the person I have become; the people who have come into my life and whom I have the pleasure to call my friends; my health and life. For what are you grateful? Be your best self in 2017. Be the hope you wish to see in the world. Dream big and never stop believing in yourself. You are blessed and have so much to offer the world! #radiatelightandlove

Red Boots Laced With Bold Courage

smileSo I was chatting with my dear friend Patricia, who has many talents, which include being an amazing hairdresser. As I was under the hairdryer, I was focused on her incredible red boots. She kindly let me take a picture, which I have attached below. I was so attracted to these boots, but not necessarily for the boots in particular, but because of the symbolism and what they represented to me. I thought it interesting that the shiny bold attractive redness, mirrored my dear friend Patricia’s personality – or perhaps my perception of her personality. Vibrant, joyful, happy, strong, carefree and eclectic. But I was left with the words ‘strong bold courage’. I realised that these were personality traits and emotions that I recognised in myself.

red-bootsHowever, I will be the first to admit that I do not feel strong, bold and courageous everyday! Far from it! However I can possess the spirit of boldness, and the spirit of courage, everyday, which in turn makes me feel strong. It feels great – well of course, why wouldn’t it? It would make anyone feel great! So why do we not do more to cultivate boldness and courage each day?

Well, you don’t have to contemplate dyeing your hair red (like me!), but you can strengthen your belief in yourself, your self-worth and your self-esteem. How do we speak to ourselves – in the quiet of our minds, as well as out loud? What company do we keep – negative friends or family members who, though they love you, have a lifelong habit of placing you in a box of limitations and speaking to you in a negative way? How do you encourage yourself to be your best self everyday? Well, these are all little daily steps we can learn to take, and create new habits, slowly, but steadily. I hear 21 days is the average time it takes to cultivate a new habit. That’s good enough for me.

Soft Focus…

So, I found myself face down on my yoga mat breathing deeply in a softly lit studio as the early morning sunlight started to stream through the glass and shine on my face. It was a beautiful moment of bliss, and everything within my line of sight looked almost magical. Sparkling light, revealing a multitude of tiny little particles in the air. It made me think about all the wonderful opportunities that life has to offer, that we may miss or not see or not be open to, because we don’t have the time, or the inclination to look a little closer, a little deeper or to pause and think of what could be different in our lives. What missed opportunities have you had in your life? Perhaps something was offered to you, but it sounded too good to be true? Or you thought it was ‘beneath’ you and so you dismissed it before taking a closer, more considered look? Or it sounded too ‘different’ or unusual for you to take seriously?

sparkle-1444217_960_720

I feel that way about my business and my life now. How different my life was only 5 years ago. 3 years ago! It’s almost as though I have new and improved vision! Or, if you like films, perhaps it feels a bit like the movie ‘The Matrix’, where Neo, the character played by Keanu Reeves, discovers that all is not as it seems. The ‘normal’ world he is used to, is in fact, not real at all , but a computer programme. The real world looks feels and smells incredibly different, but it becomes far more attractive because you are seeing your life for what it really is.

I am excited by my ‘new’ life which looks, feels and smells incredibly different, but life is far more attractive as I am starting to see great things.To see life more clearly and live my life more deeply. For that I will be eternally grateful.

Time Or Life Management…

Wow, this is an ongoing challenge isn’t it? Time Management! Just looking at those two words placed side by side conjures up feelings of guilt and images of my school teacher’s comments in red ink in the margin saying ‘must do better!’ So I ask myself questions like ‘Am I leveraging my time?’, ‘Am I spending a high percentage of my time on income-producing activity?’, ‘What systems do I have in place that work in favour of my business?’, ‘Could I plan my day better using units of time, as suggested at a recent training session I attended?’, ‘I am spending too much time multi-tasking, and then feeling overwhelmed and not getting anything done, when I should be working in blocks of time, cutting out distractions?’, ‘ Should I improve upon how I plan my week and month, setting massive goals for myself each day?’. These are all valid questions, and matters that do, and should occupy my mind so that I can better myself and my business.

However, the thoughts on time management that occupy my mind this morning hold a slightly different meaning. I suppose I’m thinking about life management? I’m thinking about the consequences of not following your dreams in life and being filled with regret on your deathbed. I’m thinking about choosing to change those areas of your life that you are unhappy with and having the courage to take daily steps in the right direction. I’m thinking about taking ownership of, and using the talents I have been given, to serve others, to bless others, to be of value to others. To accept this responsibility, and to take steps to become the person I need to be in order to fulfil my purpose. So what life management steps are you taking today? Be light and love.

When My Internal Fog Clears…

Depending on how you choose to view the world, everyday life could be pretty grim.’Oh it’s such a grey day!’ or ‘Oh the nights are drawing in….’ or ‘I’ve just come back from holiday so that’s me done for another year …’ or ‘Once that man took my seat on the train, it ruined my whole day!’ Does any of this sound familiar? I must confess that I have often allowed myself to be drawn into ‘an internal fog’ because of one annoying happening in my day; but now I make a concious decision to choose my thoughts and my mood like I choose a dress from my wardrobe.

Inspirational-Wallpapers-the-secret-22453546-1024-768

When my internal fog evaporates, the world appears to be in glorious technicolour, and I feel like a beautiful, vibrant and dazzlingly colourful butterfly! I wish I could draw this image of me as a colorful butterfly! In fact, I think I may have stumbled upon my new logo! I see all the colours I love, vibrant pinks, and gold amber, and lime and emerald greens, luscious purples, soothing sea blues, burnt orange, and a touch of red! As I flutter my wings, I radiate my light and my love and gently stir and awaken many others in their own internal fogs, almost as if in a slumber – to see their own beauty within, and to shine brightly!

The beauty within other people and the presence of life in all I see around me, is inspiring. I am listening to Life. Or perhaps I’m listening with my eyes! I will open the windows of my mind and heart and listen to Life. I ask for a fresh in-filling of light and love today, for myself and for you too.
