Your ideas will change your life - 22 mins on how to act on them
Change your life with 3 simple questions that PROVE you know how to make your idea happen.
Plus - why it's so VITAL that you follow through on your ideas.
This audio is an extract from a training I delivered for a business community I run. Each week, I go live and share some new ideas to keep people focused on their next level in life and business before answering questions.
This week, I shared three simple questions to help people realise they already have the answers within them.
Press play to hear the questions and find your own answers...
Ideas come in like the waves, in and out, in and out.
Then every now and then, a group of ideas crash together in a crescendo that has the power to change your life. The ideas meet. They have a theme. You see the golden thread that connects them into something bigger than any idea on its own.
But of course - ideas are no good to the person who turns away. When you ask for help, for guidance, for a miracle, the answer often comes in the form of hope, a change in perspective, in ideas. The hope, the new perspective, the idea is the key, it is the path.
And it’s WHO YOU BECOME in bringing that idea to life that will get you through to the next level.
So tune in to the inspiration you’re already receiving.
Start to write down the ideas you have. And find the courage to take action. Bringing the ideas to life IS the path to the life you want.

3 minutes on honest action: Have you done the ONE TRUE ACTION to achieve your goals?
If the customers aren’t coming you have to ask yourself: Have I realllly done the one true action that will win me new clients?
There is a BIG difference between making a sales page and then selling your offer, just like there is a big difference between picking your plants for a new garden and then actually putting your shovel in the mud.

What is stopping you at the point of action? Motivating voicenote to get you 'out there'
Did you ever used to watch Gary Vee's daily vlogs? I loved them! I'm not sure if they're back now, but the ones pre-world-shut-down. Ah man they were fab - music, broll, daily life. Right up my video editing street.
Anyway, in the intro to them, he used to step off a jet and you'd hear him say: "I just want to be happy, don't you want to be happy?".
Those words are repeated in my head DAILY. And even more so if I feel down or stuck or demotivated.
That notion - 'I just want to be happy' - has prompted some crazy decisions in me for a long time.
I guess I just believe that there is nothing more 'successful' than being happy, truly, deeply, happy. Safe & secure, with means to live well, yes...and happy.
I also believe that if we do what is 'for us' in this lifetime - if we're brave and follow the calling, if we do what lights us up - the other things we desire will follow anyway. It's hard of course, finding the courage to pursue happiness over familiarity, happiness over comfort, happiness over status quo.
It's often real 'rock the boat of life' stuff we have to do. And a lot of people pause when it comes to the 'taking action' part.
I guess that's what I'm talking about in today's voice note - what comes before action, what makes us happy, who we want to become.
1. Vision / destination / goal / intention / desire.
2. Belief / resolve / willingness to try / energy / motivation to act.
Often people know what they want and won’t admit it. Then know what it will take and won’t do it.
I think the first one comes down to a fear of failure or getting hurt and the second one comes down to a belief of ‘not me’, as in - other people can do this but I can’t.
I doubt myself all the time when I’m shooting for more. In those times I lean heavily on journalling, affirmations annnnddd the belief of others.
Every day we have a choice: Avoid the hard stuff and distract ourselves with checkout activities. Which really just makes the pain bigger in the long run.
Lean on positive habits like books, exercise, motivation content etc. to find just enough courage to take one small step.
When I was totally lost in depression I learnt not to lean on my own motivation at that time - I didn’t have any!
So I borrowed other people's.
I read so many autobiographies of business owners who’d turned things around. I listened to comedians on my runs. I played motivational music and speeches and FLOODED my mind and subconscious with the new thoughts I knew I had to believe.
And with that, I found the courage each day to do a little something for my future - post, pay off some debt, learn. And I am so grateful to that past version of myself who tried in agony.
The life we’ll live tomorrow will be set up by the courage we can muster today.

3 mins on happiness and fear - how to take action today
Happiness, like most good things - It's not a passive process. The passive process of life will see you falling into the trenches of what is easy, what is comfortable, what you've done before. Happiness requires that you actively put yourself in the way of what you want in your life, and you put yourself on the line and you risk failure.
Everybody's terrified of failure but fear is only ever one of two things. You're afraid it will fail and you won't look good. And the other fear is fear of getting hurt.
Here's the thing that I love, right…
Every time you take action on something, you're basically saying, I have faith that this could work. I believe that this might turn out. I believe that if I give it a go and I commit to it, I will figure something out along the way and I'll probably end up where I want to be.
Any time you procrastinate or hold back or make an excuse or whatever, you're basically saying, I'm fearful that this won't turn out. I’m afraid it won't work. I don't have faith in my ability to see this through.
So if you're procrastinating on anything like putting a post out, writing a book, going to the gym, going on dating apps, remind yourself that all you're doing is protecting yourself from the fear of failure, from the fear that it won't work out.
Well, let me tell you, you've already failed because it's never going to work out if you're not even in the game. If you literally don't give it a go, you have failed anyway. So the very thing you tried to protect yourself from, you just ran into at 100 miles an hour.
Why do that?
The thing that you want sits on the other side of you taking action.
5 minutes on: How to change a subconscious belief to change your life
Changing your life is an active, not a passive, process.
There are stories and ideas and beliefs you’re running that are stupid and mean and cruel.
What speaker would say to themselves: “You suck! You’ll never get paid to speak!”
What writer would say to themselves: “You’ve got nothing to say, don’t even begin!”
What coach would say to themselves: “You don’t know enough. Don’t even think about posting that!”
Of course, we don’t say these things out loud or even consciously. They’re thoughts, ideas, vibes we hold in our subconscious mind.
Who cares why. Who cares where they came from.
What I care about is this:
1 - You define what you want to become.
2 - You dig deep and list out how you feel about this. What ideas support you here? What fears do you have? What’s the dominant thought you have in the background around this goal?
3 - Write it all down! Pay attention. GET CONSCIOUSNESS over the feelings you hold. Say them out loud. Put them into words.
4 - REWRITE THEM! Rewrite the beliefs you need to hold and repeat them until your subconscious mind accepts them as truth.
This sounds too simple to work but it literally does lol.
A belief is JUST something we’ve repeated enough times that we hold it to be fact.
It’s not fact!
“I don’t have time” is an opinion, not a fact.
“I’m not good enough” is an opinion, not a fact.
“I don’t deserve it” is an option, not a fact.
Don’t ignore this advice. It will change your life.
Set your intention. Go searching for the feelings / blocks / self limiting beliefs. Put them into words. REWRITE the belief you need and repeat, repeat, repeat until you hold it to be true.
Of course you need to back this up with action! Don’t just say stuff and return to your normal behaviours.
Repeat the new beliefs AND use that vibe to sit down to write a post.
Repeat the new beliefs AND use that energy to get yourself on the dating app!
Repeat the new belief AND use that power to create a speaker bio.
Beliefs and actions come hand in hand. Through both, we gain confidence, experience and momentum!

6 fundamental ways to change your life right NOW
#howtochange #changeyourlife #changeyourmindset
Honestly? There are only two things you have to focus on if you want to change your life now and it really is as simple as this:
(1) How you see yourself; and, (2) The action YOU prioritise.
It's tragic to think we know something we want and we even know how to get it and yet we simply don't do the 'one true action' that will get us there.
It's like waking up and saying: "I'm desperate to be in shape. I know all I have to do is make better food and move a little more each day but instead I think I'll eat this entire bag of [whatever] and sit at my desk all day".
Or "I urgently want (and need) to grow my business. To do that all I need to do is actually complete my new offer, invite more people to consider it through webinars / events / ads but instead I think I'll clear my inbox and sit and worry about the money running out."
Why? We actually do this don't we?
Think now of something you want. And identify the two basic things you'd have to do in order to make it happen. So why won't you do those two things? What is stopping you?
I think it all comes down to how you see yourself and therefore the action you prioritise...
And, I guess - focus. Is that thing in focus now? Do you bring it back into focus daily, by watching content like this and actually taking action.
Listen! You CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE. And the changes you make today will be the life you live tomorrow. So forgive yourself for the past. Accept you're capable of change today. Press play and follow this process - 6 fundamental ways to change your life NOW.
You can do it. It's been done before. And it will be done again.
