Whenever you are using the words should, must, have to, could, need to realise you are procrastinating! You have a low value on doing the task or achieving the end result. When you have a high value on a result you do not need to be motivated. You will never procrastinate as you will be inspired from within.
One of the most enjoyable activities an adult can do is go walking with a 2 or 3 year old. How amazing the world is in their eyes! There is adventure around every corner. So much to look at, to smell, to taste, to experience. Yes, some things are scary, some hot, some way too cold. But everything is new, fresh and exciting. Isn’t it time to bring back that natural curiosity into your life and world? You can quite easily. Just start looking with an open mind and ask: How, Why, and what more often!

Becoming is more about How you Think than how much you earn. It’s what you do with your earnings that is important. Do you have a savings or a spending mentality? If you were given a windfall $2000 what would you do with it? Go shopping? Pay off some bills? Deposit into your mortgage or invest it? Of course, if you are born into a wealthy family, it can fast track your success, but not always! Winning lotto is not the answer either. Statistically, people who win $1 million or more in Lotto have lost it all within 5 years! Mindset is the key! You need to create a wealth mindset and belief you can be wealthy before money and assets ever start to accumulate in your accounts.
Failing to decide is equal to deciding to fail. Every day we are presented with choices: what to eat, to wear, to do; these are very basics. More important choices pop up unexpectedly, getting into the habit or being comfortable to make a snap decision (based on previous experiences) is an art and practice is the way to perfect it. Practice making quick decisions. Every decision can be corrected by another. Write down the pros and cons of life-changing decisions – anaylsis against your desired outcome. If it fits, go with it.

Values! The ‘fire in the belly’ that drives every decision that we make. Often Values are confused with social dictum such as honesty, respect, family, trust etc. But values are different! Values are voids we perceive in our lives that we ‘chase’ to forfill. Values change dependant on circumstances. Health is a great example.

Suddenly, values change – nutrition, exercise, health are top values – the job takes second place. When ‘health’ is missing, we will do everything to fill the void. Book a session and find out what is really driving you!

Values, good service, and ‘fair exchange’ are the cornerstones of any business. Natural therapists often undervalue themselves and the service they give and the change they bring to their clients. This reflects a lack of confidence in either themselves or self-worth. There is a mis-conception by ‘New World therapists’ that they must gift their skills to the world. Its time to change that belief! Money is exchanged for service given. The more organised and valued the service given, the greater the reward. Lets start adding value to Natural and alternative therapies.
Our choices are ‘value statements!’ We choose what gives us the most benefits over drawbacks or less pain! We will ‘do’ things to be accepted, acknowledged, supported, loved, by others or a group. We will also ‘bend rules’ to gain more comfrot over pain. This Pluses and Minus can relate to any or all areas of our lives. There is an old saying “men die for it, babies cry for it!” Recognition, acceptance, and belonging are all major persuaders when people do things and we ask ‘what were you thinking?’
Recently at Quit Smoking in 60 Minutes in Capalaba, I have had several people questioning the cost of quitting smoking. I find the question interesting. I believe in most cases the person is really questioning the cost of one 90 minute session. But, it’s not really one session that you are paying for, is it? …
