Come Clean in 2019

New Year'S Day, New Year'S Eve, Abstract

Make this your new all-year mantra:

I will Come Clean in 2019

Say it again: I will come clean in 2019

Right now today and every day from now on all through 2019—do what it takes for you to come clean so you can authentically live your dreams.  Be honest about your dreams, tell the truth about what’s in your heart, expose how you are really doing (maybe for the first time ever), acknowledge your doubts and fears, be bold-share your challenges and success.

The challenge for you in 2019 is essentially internal—know who you are inside and out.  Invest in hearing your true inner thoughts. Evaluate your insecurities, claim your goals and desires, accept that you can and will change, and vividly see your achievements.

First, have no fear. Hear and feel the authentic YOU. Quietly, without judgment, examine in increments your doubts and insecurities.  Everyone has them; face whatever comes up with courage and confidence.  Change any thought of “impossible” to I’M POSSIBLE, that’s really who you are.

Start now by celebrating 2019.  This is your year to make changes in your life and thus in the world.  It may feel daunting at first to accept responsibility for self-change and then think about how this change , however minute, affects the world. Make life changes- feel the fear (doubt or insecurity) and dogmatically do it anyway.

Next, accept that change is both a challenge and a bounty that you desire and deserve. Get ready now, work on yourself with a positive mindset, so that you are prepared to proudly claim your goals and desires.

I will come clean in 2019

The year 2019 is 365 days long; keep who you are and what you purpose to do in your heart, mind and soul all day every day and make progress towards that by vamping up your selective activities, network, contacts, and incremental projects to reach your goal(s).

Remember a goal without a definite completion date is only a longing. Write down each goal with a close out date.

       “Do one thing every day that scares you.” ~Eleanor Roosevelt

What one daily activity will you do to come clean in 2019? Write out your list of tasks (they may scare you) that stretch your exposure zone every day.

Here are suggestions that will enable you to make the scary into the sacred:

Treasure Map What You Want in 2013

Vision Board, Check Emotional Baggage

Oprah Winfrey popularized the concept of a “Treasure Map.”

She devoted an entire hour of The Oprah Winfrey Show to the topic several years ago and the concept of creating a visual board of what you want skyrocketed. Although treasure mapping was not a new concept at the time, the practice exploded. Hoards of women and men and children around the globe began to create a visual collage of their goals for the future.

The results reported were astounding. Wave after wave of “treasure mappers” began recording achievement success, all attributed to their design a visual reminder of  what they wanted to accomplish in their life. Creating a treasure map is a very simple but effective idea: It involves creating a physical representation or collage of what you want to achieve that acts as a constant visual reminder and representation of your goals. Seeing daily the treasure map that you created intensifies the effects of visualization, which seals your intentions on your subconscious mind to motivate and encourage you towards achieving those goals.

Visualizing Goals on Paper.

A treasure map collage is a powerful goal attainment technique.  The reason it can be effective is that you identify exactly what you want for your life.  Treasure mapping is a creative image that you put on paper that shows what you desire and intend to work towards for a span of time.  Barbara  Laport has been using and teaching the process of goal design on collage, or treasure mapping, for more than twenty years.  She says, in her book Goal Achievement through Treasure Mapping, that this is one way to link vision with reality.

Treasure mapping is an effective goal design process.  It involves creating a physical, visual representation of your goals. You get to create this collage, which may be a work of art or a crude form of motivation for achievement.  Some treasure mappers are design conscious and some aren’t. The main point is not to spend too much energy on “beauty.” Rather spend your creative juice on the “bounty” of what you intend to achieve.

Key Treasure Mapping Step:

First of all, begin creating your treasure map when you are ready. You can create a treasure map anytime. It does not have to be completed New Year’s Day, although many use that date as a marker for their annual treasure map ritual. It’s up to you.  Start designing your goal collage when you are ready to craft your creative visual of your financial, personal, professional or material goals. That is when you begin.

  • The most important first step in creating your treasure map is to clearly know what you want to achieve. Your goals must be clarified at the beginning of the process.   Goal setting is the first pivot step in the process.
  • Next, you can begin to visualize what you want to happen once you have achieved your goals.

It is really that simple – know the goal(s) you want to achieve and then visualize the outcome. Dig into the details by asking questions about each goal: What do I want? What will I get when I achieve my goal? How does getting what I want feel? How will I celebrate?  Who will I be when this goal is attained? Catherine Ponder says the visualization of what you want to achieve is critical; she adds “this is when you open your mind to receive.”

Open your mind to receive

Think grandly, don’t minimize or settle for less than the boundless expanse of your goal.  Then, creatively design your goals and what you clearly visualize on paper. Keep in mind here, as you begin to set-up your treasure map vision board, to have order.  Make your vision board treasure map a clear road  map to success, not a chaotic mess of confusion. Clear design and clear outcome visualization make a huge difference.

You may look for inspiration in magazines or other print or online images that support the goal you want to achieve. For instance, if you have a goal of a vacation to Costa Rica, find pictures of scenery in Costa Rica. Your pictures must clearly represent that specific goal and not some vague longing. Another example might be a career or professional goal, then you need find exact pictures and motivational words that relate to your goal. If you want money, create a financial goal picture that clearly specifies the amount of money you want. The purpose is to see yourself there, to definitely see yourself achieving exactly what you want.

A treasure map captures your goal in vivid picture form on paper.   What you create will become your creative visualization of achievement.

Finish your treasure map vision board.

This may seem trivial, but often many fail to complete assignments that move them closer to their goal and thereby sabotage their ultimate achievement.  Keep working, clarify each goal and then add visual effects that inspire and  motivate your achievement. You may also add milestone markers along the way, depending on how sophisticated you want to get.

Get it done, create your goal intention masterpiece. You are the Picasso of your goals. Keep in mind, too, that if you later find an image that better captures your goal, add it in or replace a weaker image. It is perfectly fine to refine your treasure map throughout the year.

Treasure Map placement

Place your treasure map vision board in a prominent place. It is your reminder of the goals you want to achieve. Some achievers place their vision board on the refrigerator, others tape their treasure map on the bathroom mirror or place it in front of a mirror. You may wish to put your treasure map on your bedroom door. You make the choice of where you want to hang or place your treasure map; just make sure you see it every day as a prominent reminder of your goals for 2013.

Happy Treasure Mapping – collage your dreams!

What Else Is Possible?

Millions watched Michael Phelps win another gold medal at the 2012 Olympics in London in his race to be named the greatest athlete of all time.  In each interview with the media, you could hear the unasked question-What Else is Possible Michael? Bob Costas, a veteran Olympic news presence, asked the question right after his historic last race, the 4×100 relay where Phelps won his 18th gold medal.

Michael Phelps said, “There are other things I can do. I think I will be able to sort of shift that competitiveness into any thing I put my mind to.”

It may be time for you to ask yourself-What else is possible in your life. Have you reached a goal, gotten to a pinnacle, or no longer feel stimulated in your routine? Then, stretch yourself. What other things can you do? Think about it. Push!

“Sometimes the best helping hand you can get is a good, firm push.”

~ Joann Thomas

Push upward, push yourself harder. Do more, discover latent talents, drive your passion.  Make the self-sacrifice so that you stretch your boundaries. Become a new champion. Don’t bend to habit and comfort-eliminate your limits and disturb your comfort.

Go for it-NOW.

Take these tips to stretch yourself:

  • Dream. Think real hard about what else is possible. There are not limits, think this is what I’d do if there were no obstacles, there was enough money, and you had no fear. What dream would you fulfill? James Allen, famous author of As A Man Thinketh, believed “that all that a man achieves and all that he fails to achieve is a direct result of his own thoughts.” Therefore, dream with positive purpose.
  • Make a short list. Write one, two, or three stretch goals. Now remember a goal is a dream with a deadline. Get out some paper or use your Ipad to write your goals that have a deadline. Brian Tracy asserts that you must write your goals down. The purpose is two-fold; first writing a goals signals to your brain and the universe that you desire something different and second, it creates a visual record of your passionate desire that has a deadline.
  • Take action. No action, no result. Sure you can dream and yes you can write your dream(s) down, but without the commitment which is shown by your actions, nothing happens. Claude Bristol, in The Magic of Believing, emphasizes this over and over.   Women and men achievers, like Michael Phelps, take action.  Phelps completed 51 Olympic swims and swam nearly 10,000 meters and 198 lengths of the pool in Olympic races. What can you do?
  • Make a record. Record your achievements. The value of this is that it reminds you of what you have accomplished and allows you to see, feel and believe what you have yet to do.  Records guide achievement.

What else is possible? Only you know for sure.

 

Leap Year Day: 3 Tips for Leaping Life

It’s Leap Year 2012. Alright, fine. What makes this year extraordinary is that for the first time in four years you can leap your life to the top. Leap life.  Get ahead of mediocre mindset, minimum living and modest money.

by nattavut

Don’t waste the day, instead plan to make this day a leap to your success.  In case a refresher reminder is necessary to aide your towering leap to your success in 2012 these three tips can maximize your achievement:

  1. Speak positive truth all day. Talk out loud to yourself. Affirm in a thundering voice positive mantras. If you have not written a personal mantra, write one. Mine is-I am child of a rich father. I deserve the best for it is my right. This is my positive truth that I proclaim in a booming voice to leap life everyday.  Shout with strong emotion your affirmation and other positive messages all day.
  2.  Don’t worry, be happy this leap year day. Clear out all negativity today. Replace worry with gratitude, find sources of happiness. Whistle, sing, dance, collect memories, draw, paint, swing in the playground, walk in the park, skip rope, play flag ball, smile, say something tender. You get the point, control unrewarding input. Guard your ear-gate and heart-gate. Shut away the news. Find what is fun and funny. Make yourself and others happy – leap ahead just like a frog.
  3. Think and see your goal checklist for the year. Let me recommend a website for goal-setting, www.achieve-goal-setting-success.com.   This site is full of free goal setting, success, achievement strategies and life skills for adults and children to leap your year.  It is a well documented fact that goal-setters succeed, and people who succeed have goals. Make your goal road map using the tools found on the website or create one independently, whatever route you take to make definite your goals that have a start and end date that will allow you to leap life, do it NOW-29 February 2012 is your start date.

Make major efforts to identify and supercharge your success.  Never despair or get discouraged since, even with the strongest leap, goal attainment takes times.  Work and prepare and work persistently.  Keep on keeping on, leap this year to your success!

Leap Year 2012 is your date to energize your actions for success.

All Year Resolutions

All Year Resolutions have nothing to do with chronological time, but everything to do with living in the present.

 

Forget the calendar for a moment. Instead think with me about a span of time, that you get to choose, and make a strong resolution to change one thing in your life. You may decide that today, right now, is your best moment – and you are right! Or, you may select another time of the day or even another day – and you are right then too!  Whatever time you make a focused resolution to made a change in your life is the right time.

Oftentimes, especially at the close of one year and the beginning of the new year, frantic energy is concentrated upon making changes such as loosing weight, finding a new love, getting a better job, or acquiring material things. We design dream boards, make pledges, write new year resolutions, and join a gym and then by May guilt sets in because our resolve to complete the major resolutions faltered.

I suggest that you make all year resolutions which you set up with specific time frames and specific one goal focus. For example, you may decide on Ma 20th to begin reading one book on goal setting for one week. So, your resolution time frame for this goal is May 20-27th.

Next you may decide to exercise more. Thus, you may decide that your start date is April 21st, the start of a new season and you may choose to close out this goal on November 21st as another example. Your all year resolution in this case would be to start exercising more on April 21 through November 21.

You get the gist. The power point here is that you:
1. Control the time frame rather than be controlled by social standard
2. Fix a definite goal
3. Establish a defined time-line to begin and end your resolution
4. Begin and start your resolution activity as planned

A fifth power point is to write your goal and time frame down. Henriette Klausser in Write it Down and Make it Happen, posits that writing down your resolution goal and time frame is the single most important step to internalizing and achieving your goal.

Inculcate your resolution. Make it yours. Own it and the time frame in which you pledge to begin and stop that particular resolution and begin your all year resolutions any time you recognize its your time to change, do something different, and alter your attraction so that you complete in phased steps your intention.

Resolve. Realign. Respond. Rewrite. Results.

Build your success, one resolution – sorted out by you all year – at a time.

 

 

What Do You Want?

I don’t mean to be rude as is customarily the case when someone sounds irritated in a response to you. No, not at all. My intention by asking this question, what do you want is to probe you to think about the life question – What do YOU Want?

Really, ask yourself this question right now. Say, self (insert your name here) what do you want?

Next, take deliberate steps to answer the question. Let me real clear here – until you answer the question and seer the answer into your soul, you will be a flounder fish out of the water of life.

Don’t despair; I have Answers, thus the name Anita Answers – smile. Act on these five points to define exactly what you want.

Answer One
: Make a dream board, vision board, mastermind chart or goal message that contains images and wordings of exactly what you want. Be bodacious. Dream BIG! Fantasize. The main point in designing this visual of what you want is to allow no limitations at this point. Regardless of whether you can imagine or even expect most of what you really want to happen, do it anyway. Dream in colorful, broad dimension. That’s your only task.

To confirm my point, read The Eleventh Element by Robert Scheinfeld.

Answer Two
: Allow your 11th Element to work – this means that you must believe everything you want as visualized and set in visual form in Answer One. Belief becomes behavior.

Answer Three
: Act as if it has already been done. Behave in conformity with your beliefs. See the end now and act like you see every reality of your vision. Act like success and ecstatically enjoy who you have become.

Answer Four
: Write down the goals and objectives for each segment of your vision. For example: if you envision losing 30 pounds, then your goal should specifically state: I will lose 30 pounds. The objectives for that goal may be to feel better, to enjoy better health, to look sexy, to become more active, etc. These are specific reasons that support the goal.

Also, keep in mind that a goal must be specific! Otherwise, you only have a vague longing which will grant you nothing. You are capable of being definite here, so state in specific detailed form exactly what you want.

This is critical here because when you know why you want to do something, the how becomes easy. So, write the goal and then support the goals with rational reasons that explain why.

Recommended Reading: Jack Canfield, Success Principles: How to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be. Excellent road map to goal setting and answering the question why.

Answer Five
: Go beyond yourself. No woman or man is an island. Thus, when you attach your new intentional goals to an altruistic cause that allows you to extend service to others, the reality of the goal is even more entrenched. Align at least one of your goals to service; there is plenty service work to do.

Answer Six
: Finally, become a repetitive ant. Get busy building your success ant mound. Do the same things, repeat the same mantra, look at your vision board and goals and objectives a hundred times a day or more if you need to. Make your own rhythm, but get busy making a repetitive rhythm. Repeat your goals out loud, write then down again and again, and look at your vision board to see the outcome you are working toward. Repeat, repeat, repeat until you have inculcated a new you and can instantly act accordingly. Act, act now, and continue to act!

Make success – whatever that dream is – your new habit.
The year 2010 will be different, when you are ready to be different!

Now, answer me. What do YOU Want?
