Change Your Thinking!

Day 1 Ambition

Change Your Thinking and Start Thinking Big

In many ways, big thinking is all about changing the way that you currently think. Often, you need to look deep inside yourself in order to see deeply entrenched patterns of behavior that you may not have previously been aware of. This, while difficult, is a necessary process. You see, we often operate on automatic pilot. Our brains are programmed this way on order to save on caloric energy. Have you ever driven home and realized once you’ve arrived that you have absolutely no memory of the drive itself? That’s your brain on automatic pilot. When we are in this mental mode, our brains rely on old behaviors, ones that have been laid down over long periods of time, to keep us moving and reacting appropriately.

Unfortunately, some of these patterns of behavior are not always optimal. If you have a tendency to be negative, then it is virtually guaranteed that some of your patterns of behavior exhibit these tendencies, as well. When you go into autopilot mode this negativity is manifested in a knee-jerk reflexive action because the pattern of behavior is so ingrained. So, while the pattern is saving the caloric energy that is required of creative and reflective thought, it may also be causing you to experience negative outcomes over and over again without you even consciously realizing what it is that you are doing.

The answer to this situation is to assess all of your behaviors and reactions and identify the ones that are the most problematic. Are there patterns to your current way of approaching the world that you can see? Are any of these patterns mostly negative or producing negative outcomes? Are you able to see connections and patterns that you weren’t even aware of?

The key to successfully changing the way that you think is to root out these “automatic” ingrained behaviors. Sometimes, these behaviors can be so deeply ingrained that you may simply be incapable of recognizing them. If you look at your behavior and find nothing wrong, yet you still seem to be unable to reach your goals, this may be what’s going on. In this case, you might need to have your behavior assessed by a third party. A second set of eyes, especially when they aren’t yours, may be able to point out some troublesome areas. Pick someone you trust, someone who’s close to you and knows you well, and ask them about your potentially negative behaviors. You might be surprised to find out what someone else sees.

Day 2 Shitfing Focus

On of the main reasons why you may not have achieved some of the goals that you set at the beginning of year is you may have shifted your focus to the other things that interests you instead of the goals that you wanted to achieve. On this audio I will teach you some tips that will help you focus on your year-end goals and on improving yourself to finish strong.

Listen to Day 2 training audio here: http://stme.in/TMB1qVOdZ

Here is the assignment for Day 2:

1.  Take some time to reflect on this past year. What were your reasons for setting the specific goals you had for this year?

2.  Write down your year-end goals (include the ones you need to get started on or need to pick back up), anywhere and everywhere.

3.  Devise a well-defined schedule to work on your year-end goals.

 

 

SHIFT – From Point A to Point B Year End Challange Day 1

November 8, 2015 Leave a comment

Banner Day 1

Good Evening Everyone!

I pray that you had a great weekend and a spirit-filled Sunday. It’s time to get started with the “SHIFT” – From Point A to Point B 15 Days Challenge.

If you are like me, you want to finish this year and move into the new year on point. I want to be positioned to prosper in so many ways. I know you want the same thing.

Positioning yourself to prosper means taking the necessary steps to get into the right position. It starts with knowing what you want and setting goals to get it.

Have you set important goals for yourself only to let them slowly slip away?

How many New Year’s resolutions did you make earlier this year? How many have you actually kept?

If you’re like most people, when you think about it, you won’t like the answers to these questions.

A Life Without Goals – No way! You can’t prosper without goal.

Life without goals is kind of like a ball on a Pin Ball machine. You give it a push and it bounces all over the place.

It has highs and lows and big scores and low ones.
It doesn’t do what it wants.
It just bounces back from hitting other things.
The other things seem to be in more control than the ball.
When the ball does finally go through the bottom it doesn’t return.

You don’t want to finish this year or go into the new year this way.

You don’t want to just wander around letting other things push you around and into the wrong direction.

You need to take command of your life and make a decision to SHIFT into the right position.

HERE IS YOUR GETTING READY ASSIGNMENT:

1. Make a list (or go back over) of your goals for this year.

2. Use a colored highlighter to identify the ones you completely ignored or didn’t get a chance to do.

3. Using a separate sheet of paper write down the ones you can take some action steps to begin before this year is out. Give yourself the dates to complete each step.

Catch The Ball

Catch The Ball

One of the key ingredients for success can be summed up with one simple word—Focus! On what? That’s easy—one thing at a time. You see, in this fast-paced, “multitask” society we live in, it seems we are judged by how many different things we can do all at one time; yet in reality, we can only do one thing well at any given time.

Imagine being on your computer playing music, checking emails, working on a Word document, Excel worksheet, and PowerPoint presentation, and looking up stuff on the Internet. Your system might move pretty slowly. Right? Guess what? The same applies to us. We can do things faster and better, if we focus on only one thing at a time.

To illustrate this point even more, I want to share the following example with you.

It’s 4th down, 12 seconds remain on the clock, and your team is down by 3 points. You are the wide receiver in the biggest football game of your life, and you are called upon to win the game for the home crowd. You line up to begin the final play. The ball is snapped and you run down field.

As the ball is heaved down field in your direction, you feel the anticipation of the event which is about to unfold. You envision it all in your head, step-by-step, move-by-move. You know exactly what is going to happen.

You catch the ball. You tuck it in close with the outside arm to keep from fumbling. You twist left and then right, throwing the defenders off guard. As more people run your way, you spin to the side, and dodge one close call after another, while jumping over the opponents like they are nothing more than simple obstacles.

You soar into the end zone. The gun explodes, ending the game. Your team is victorious. Your teammates rush the field and hoist you up on their shoulders. The crowd goes wild, chanting your name in unison.

Later that night, you are the talk of the town. Everyone wants to have a moment of your time to tell you “great job!” or shake your hand or pat you on the back. This is your time to shine! All the years of training and hard work have paid off. All eyes are on you. You are the man of the hour. Then BAM!

Your mind brings you back to the moment. You were lost in your imagination. You lost focus and redirected your thoughts and energy. The pass is drawing near. You juggle the ball as you start to run for the goal. The ball is never securely in your hands. The ball slides through your hands to the ground. The crowd goes silent in disbelief.

The only thing you hear is a voice inside repeating one of the coach’s basic lessons, “Before you can do anything else, you first need to catch the ball. Until you do that, everything else is pointless.”

Now, let me ask you—did you catch the ball? How many things are you juggling in your life?

Learn to focus on one thing, master it well, and then move on to another. Focus may be the missing ingredient in your recipe for success.

When it comes to starting and running a coaching program you definitely have lots of choices and options. This includes the topic of the coaching program itself, and the way it is run or delivered.

One On One Coaching – Many coaches like to offer personalized one on one coaching programs. With this type of program you would cater your offer around the person’s needs and goals. Programs of this type are often more expensive than other coaching programs.

Group Coaching – as the name implies this is done in a group setting. Group coaching can be done using tools such as Skype, Google Hangouts, video conferencing, live streaming services or by using a webinar software. All lessons are typically delivered online and are recorded. This way if anyone misses a lesson they can listen to the recordings.

Next let’s take a look at the types of coaching that can be offered. You could practically offer a coaching program for almost anything these days. Some of the most popular programs are those for life coaches, business coaches, sports coaches, career coaches, performance coaches and team coaches.

These coaches would cover different fields and industries. Each coach would be specialized in this particular field. Another popular coaching area is that of the online marketing coach. Many people today want to learn how to make money online, and what better way to do this than by hiring a coach?

As you can see the possibilities for what type of coaching program you could offer is huge. Of course, you want to coach in an area that you feel you can demonstrate your expertise in.

Your first step in becoming a coach is to first learn what it entails to be a good coach. Then define an area that you want to specialize in. Once you have done that, then you want to outline a course or program for your coaching offer. Once this is in place you can start looking for your very first coaching clients.

Coaching can be an extremely rewarding experience. Always remember that the person taking your coaching is looking for guidance and a path to success. If you can deliver these things you can earn a good reputation as a coach in your field.

Stop Going Around The Same Mountain

September 18, 2015 1 comment

MountainDo you find yourself in the same cycle each week – day in and day out? Are you feeling frustrated about not being in a certain place in your life, ministry, business or career yet? If so, then it may be time for you to “stop going around the same mountain” expecting a different result. It may be time for you to break camp to possess what God has shown you.

One of my favorite scriptures is Deuteronomy 1:6-8 (NIV) which reads, “(6)The Lord our God said to us at Horeb, “You have stayed long enough at this mountain. (7) Break camp and advance into the hill country of the Amorites; go to all the neighboring peoples in the Arabah, in the mountains, in the western foothills, in the Negev and along the coast, to the land of the Canaanites and to Lebanon, as far as the great river, the Euphrates. (8) See, I have given you this land. Go in and take possession of the land the Lord swore he would give to your fathers—to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob—and to their descendants after them.” I want to share with you 3 key principles from this passage of scripture to help you to “Stop Going Around The Same Mountain.”

1.  You have stayed at this mountain long enough.         

  • Sometimes, you can get stuck in a place that you become use to, comfortable in or a place that you are afraid to leave.
  • God will speak to you when you have stayed in a place too long. He will let you know when it is time to leave.
  • Long enough is when you have “over stayed” your assigned time.

2.  It’s time to break camp. 

  • It’s time for you to show some signs of turning away from the mountain. It’s time to develop a plan of action to stop what you are doing to advance to the place you want to be.
  • To “advance” means to move forward in position. It’s an indication that it is  time to make something happen to further your progress. It’s time to go to higher heights – to the hills.
  • It’s time to get moving in possessing the land.

3.  Go in a take possession of the land.  

  • CONFIDENCE –  you need to have an assurance that what God said is for you is for you. (Philippians 1:6 and Hebrews 10:35)
  • COURAGE –  you need a supernatural fearlessness and bravery to possess what’s yours. (Deuteronomy 31:6-8; Joshua 1:6-9; I Corinthians 16:13)
  • FAITH TO BELIEVE – Faith will never be magic, but a systematic spiritual process that brings to pass the will of God for your personal life. It’s the key to everything!

If you are tired of repeating the same cycles not going any further in life, you will have to stop going around the same mountain, break camp and possess what’s yours.
