El Ingrediente Secreto del Exito

Es interesante platicar con la gente sobre el tema de la prosperidad y éxito. Muchísima gente cree que la prosperidad y el éxito son los resultados de la buena suerte o porque la persona viene de una familia rica y exitosa. Lo que no ven es que la prosperidad y el éxito residen dentro de cada quien y solo esperan que los llamamos. Te has preguntado alguna vez la pregunta, “Porque yo?”, o “Porque esto siempre me pasa a mi?” De seguro en alguna ocasión, todos lo hemos hecho. Desafortunadamente, cuando nos preguntamos preguntas así, estamos adoptando una mentalidad de ser las víctimas de la circunstancia. En estos momentos, creemos que no tenemos control de la situación y de nuestras vidas. Estas formas de pensar nos limitan y no nos permitan lograr ni ser prospero ni exitoso. La buena noticia es que somos capaces de cambiar nuestra forma de pensar. El primer paso es de reconocer cuando estamos pensando cosas negativas o dañinas. Un buen ejemplo es cuando pensamos algo así: “Yo siempre estoy quebrado. No hay lo suficiente dinero”, o “Yo me veo tan gorda y no atractiva.” A veces pensamos cosas así sin darnos cuenta. Yo leí que pensamos un promedio de 60.000 pensamientos a diario. Imagínate el daño que nos hacemos con pensar tantas cosas negativas! Haz el intento de darte cuenta de los pensamientos negativos tuyos aunque tan solo por un día y veras como te sorprenderás! [Las personas] llegan a ser lo que creen que son. Si yo creo que no puedo hacer algo, eso me hace incapaz de hacerlo. Pero cuando yo creo...

Have You Found Your Pot of Gold?

Just the other day I was listening to Kim George speak on With Gratitude & Grace’s Mindful Monday show on BlogTalk Radio. She read her Freedom Memorandum, which spoke to my soul divinely and profoundly. It reminded me of one summer that I spent with my mom in California as a child. One day that summer, we were driving down a windy, hilly road through a beautiful mountain range. We were listening to music that seemed to be synchronized with each turn, and we were in awe of the constant displays of beauty that awaited around each bend. As we continued on our path, there was a brief rain, followed by the return of the sun and what seemed to be one of the most vibrant and amazing rainbows I have ever seen! I was instantly convinced that we were in the perfect spot to discover the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, as the end of the rainbow appeared to be just around the next bend! I waited in anticipation as we rounded the bend, expecting to see the beautiful treasure awaiting, but to no avail. “It must be around the next one,” I thought; however I was disappointed over and over again as we rounded each bend. Are you chasing that pot of gold in your life and feeling repeatedly disappointed as you come around each bend? I found my search for the pot of gold to be a perfect metaphor for life and also one of life’s great lessons: appreciate the beauty around you, but more importantly within you, and realize that you...

Will You Embrace the Shift?

Today is Monday again, one of my favorite days of the week. While every day is special, Mondays to me represent the chance for a fresh, new beginning and new opportunities. As an entrepreneur, I try to control for as many variables as possible, planning my days and weeks out meticulously. However, sometimes there are messages from the universe that I have no way of accounting for that can end up shifting my plans completely. I began noticing an incredible shift in December 2011 which seems to be accelerating more rapidly as the time passes. Last week ended up being completely different from I had expected and there were many incredible turns of events. As I reflect on these events, I realize that there is no way that I could have ever predicted what actually occurred, but through faith and preparation, I was ready for the changes and I can’t help but to see the huge blessings that are manifesting as a result. While I had accounted for and planned for some of the events that occurred last week, I did not plan for them to happen so quickly! Sometimes we are waiting for the right moment to take that leap of faith, but life has its own way of propelling you in the direction that you are meant to go. Have you noticed the shift this year? There is an incredible energy in the air of “out with the old, and in with the new”. For some, this is an exhilarating time of new beginnings and new experiences. For others, it is extremely frightening and anxiety provoking as...

Happy Independence Life!

Today we will be celebrating Independence Day here in the United States. The 4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays because it truly commemorates the idea of freedom and pride in an incredible accomplishment. It is a happy holiday and it warms my heart to think of spending time with my family at the festival, swimming, grilling a delicious meal, and then topping it all off with a beautiful display of fireworks. What if we all were to have our own “independence day” to celebrate – as in independence from  living someone else’s ideas and expectations for your life? I vividly remember some of the turning points in my life when I experienced my own independence:  establishing my first home on my own as a young adult, graduating from college, moving to new states, buying my first house, and quitting my j-o-b to become a full-time entrepreneur, to name a few. Gaining independence is not separating yourself from your loved ones or catching “superwoman/superman syndrome” and thinking you can do it all by yourself. In fact, the meaning of independence is: The state or quality of being independent;  freedom from dependence;  exemption from reliance on, or control by others;  self-subsistence or maintenance;  direction of one’s own affairs without interference. Sufficient means for a comfortable livelihood. Gaining independence requires knowledge, experience, and ability, ingenuity, assertiveness, and a firm understanding that independence is not selfishness, isolation, or arrogance. What a beautiful feeling it is when you realize that you can decide to design your life and step into your purpose! When will you celebrate your independence...
