    How To Be Happier in 2020

    How To Be Happier in 2020

    Today's topic is all about you and some interesting perspectives that I would really like for you to consider. Let me ask you a question. Have you ever had someone in your life who made you feel very, very tired when you're around them, perhaps really drained, depressed, sad, less than excited and happy. We all have had those people in our lives. My next question is how do you feel when you spend a lot of time with that person Do you feel like, Oh my God, I can't wait til they go home. I can't wait till I go home. Oh my God. I feel it. My life is over.

    I'm going to guess you said yes, because we've all had those people in our lives. We have all had those people who are draining because all they do is they groan and they moan about their pain and their past and their spouse and their life and their work and on and on and on. So, now let me ask you a question. Do you have someone or some somebodies in your life that when you're around him, her or them, you feel excited? You feel like there's opportunity. There's possibilities. That's because they believe in you. They respect you and they want the best for you. Now, I hope that you have some people in your life like this, because I know I do. And if you can identify this person or people in your life now, I want to ask you, how does it make you feel

    How do you behave when you're with these people? Do you feel like there's possibilities? Like I just can't wait to get on my next project! LikeI can accomplish this task; and where you know, it's okay to step outside my comfort zone that way, because I do have a cheering crowd and a bunch of cheerleaders! I do hope that you have somebody like this. Now I'm going to take a moment and talk about what's going on, in what we'll call "reality right now". So, we are approximately,four months into this pandemic thing and everywhere you look, there's something on the news. It's constantly about the pandemic and the Corona virus and how bad it is and how many people are sick and how many people are dying. The podcast today is not about the politics. That's not where I'm going.

    Your thoughts, your beliefs. They belong to you. I'm not here to change them. I don't want to change them. I don't care. What I do want to bring to your attention now is when you watch the news, are you watching it once a day, twice a day, do you have it on 24 seven In other words, are you being informed or inundated? And when you watch the news, I don't care what station that you watch. Again, that's your choice, your preference. I'm not here to debate that today, but I do want to ask you to think about this. Whether you're informed or inundated, and I want you to consider becoming aware of how you feel when you're watching this information. Are you feeling sad? Are you feeling depressed? Do you feel anxiety, worry, fear, doubt? What are those feelings that you're feeling from the news?

    Are you excited? Do you want to get on board with the negativity that's happening? Do you want to stand up? Do you want other people to hear your voice, your opinion? How is the news making you feel? Okay, let's go back to the very first scenario I asked you about, if you have a friend or a group of friends who make you feel tired and exhausted and perhaps sad or depressed when you're around them. How often do you let these people into your space? Yes, I did say how often do you Let them into your space Because guess what It's your space, your bubble, your choice. So, how often are you allowing these people or person into your space? Now, What if,… what if you cut that down into a quarter of the amount, how would that make you feel? Would it have the same impact or effect on your daily life or weekly

    I'm going to guess. No. Because now you don't have the weight, the pressure of this person or people or group that make you feel sad, depressed, fretful

    How to stay motivated

    How to stay motivated

    Motivation is a perception and perception is everything

    Change how you look at the world and the world looks different

    The glass is 1/2 empty or the glass is 1/2 full.  Either way you are right,

    The only difference is whether or not you are focused on a positive or negative outcome.

    Motivation definitions:

    The general desire or willingness (of someone) to do something:

    It is the reason (or reasons) for acting or behaving in a particular way

    Today, my intention is to not just help you get yourself motivated but to understand why you are not motivated

    If motivation is (according to the definitions) the reason you want to get up and take action, and you find yourself unmotivated to take action, you may want to consider asking yourself WHY ?  Why do you want to get up and take action?  Why should you get into action?

    The term action simply means getting into motion by doing an activity, task or something there of, you are move forward and making progress

    Sir Issac Newton said, “An object in motion will stay in motion, an object at rest will stay at rest”

    Consider this; if you are not moving forward, you are stand still or worse yet, you are going backwards.

    In the grand scheme of life, the goal is to grow by moving forward.  If you are going staying still or moving backwards you are at the very least stuck.

    So, how do you know if you are moving forward and making process in your life and how does this correlate to motivation?

    I’m glad you asked.  Since motivation is derived from willingness or reason to do something or behave a certain way, you need to understand what drives you to take action.

    What goals do you have for your business and life? Is there a purpose for setting the goal? 

    Yes, I said purpose.  You need to know why you set that goal in the first place.  That reason is the back bone to your mission.

    *****I once worked with a women who’s sole purpose for starting a business as an independent consultant was to have money so her family could go on vacation ( they were planning a minimum of 3 trips that year)

    We would have check in calls periodically to see how she was progressing.   Each check in she would have a reason why things were not going well.  Long story short, the family did indeed go on vacation and the only impact of her not reaching the goal was very minimal.

    It’s not uncommon for entrepreneurs to set money goals.  What I think is amusing is the “I want more money” statement.  That’s when I hand out a penny and say “there, mission accomplished

    Let me back up for a moment …

    The way I was introduced to the concept of mission and purpose goes like this: my mission in my life is ultimately linked to my legacy - It is the big picture of what I desire to accomplish and contribute to the world. It is way bigger than me and it might not be accomplished in my lifetime. 

    My purpose is the reason behind my mission.

    For example my mission is to inspire and empower 5 million people to become the best version of him/her self.  To feel confident, self assured, to experience all the fun, freedom and fulfillment they desire and learning how to do so with little or no guilt or regret.  Learning how to Love life, not just live life

    My purpose (the reason) is because I desire to make a positive impact on this world.  Knowing that it’s up to me to Be the change I want to see.  So, I’ve chosen a very special niche to work with… mompreneurs.  Women working a business from home around their family.  Why?  Because Moms are the nucleus to the family and children ore the next generation.  So, for me to have the biggest impact, when I can help mom improve her communication skills, gain control of time and emotional management,

    Getting Creative with Michelle Lynne

    Getting Creative with Michelle Lynne

    Michelle Lynne is the owner of ML Interiors Group, a successful design firm based in Dallas, Texas. She started her firm in 2008 while still working in corporate America. It was also the year she got married and purchased a home ... And the year the market crashed. More than a decade later, she is happily married and her interior design business is thriving.

    I loved speaking with Michelle about some of the misconceptions entrepreneurs have when it comes to starting your own business.

    Michelle discusses a strategy she implements and teaches that every business can learn from that goes beyond client acquisition, creating a budget, pricing and more. (22:00)

    Just because you can run a multi-company does not mean you are knowledgable in owning and running your own business. Building a business is much like caring for a baby. You need boundaries, discipline, goals and aspirations.

    Michelle divulges her most secret fear (34:00)

    https://www.designedforthecreativemind.com/balancedlife will take you to all the special bonuses Michelle mentioned in her interview.
