From Stress to Success – Day #2 Clear away the obstacles

Hi everyone:) How was day #1 for you? You set your goals and are ready to go? Oh, you missed the first day? No problem, you can still jump in.  Oh, hang on, yes you have set a goal but obstacles are in the way? Great. Now, let’s work on that: Clear away your goal’s obstacles. Hmm, that sounds juicy.

Obstacle number 1 – Overwhelm and how to overcome it:

We all might remember a time, where you set a goal which sounded fantastic and got you pumped but then you looked at it going: holy moly, how am I going to achieve this? Where do I start? Overwhelm gets in the way. I have this all the time. My goals are big, and if I don’t break it down, nothing is going to happen as I find all sorts of excuses why something else is suddenly more important. A big goal is most likely to cause you even more stress.

So, what do I do then?

Easy, break your big goal into little chunks and set a timeframe next to it, so you know when you want to have the small goals accomplished by. It is so easy but yet does wonders. You will feel great once you can tick off all your little goals. It boosts your energy.

Obstacle number 2 – fear and how to clear it:

Then there are other obstacles like limiting beliefs. Oh yes, now it is getting juicy here. Remember a part of our brain called: critter brain wants you always to be safe. So it keeps reminding you of what you always did, even though it did not do any good to you. The minute you are trying to change for the better, your critter brain comes up, knocking on your door and saying: “Hey, what are you doing? Stay where you are, I don’t know what you are doing, but it doesn’t feel safe because I don’t know it.” Remember, this is just your inner voice trying to convince you to stay where you are. Now, do you want to stay where you are or do you want to achieve great things for yourself? I bet the latter is your truth.

So, next time this inner voice comes up which might be saying to you: “Really, you? You are going to fail anyway. What do you mean, you can reach this goal, are you joking?” This kind of voice needs to shut up! Give that voice a name and tell it to go away. Now envision you achieving your goal and having it already. Stay at that moment and take a small action step towards your goal.

That’s what it is, a ‘limiting’ beliefs. You are the one limiting it. Ask yourself where does this belief come from and what is the real message underneath? Now ask yourself if this is the truth….most likely you will find that it is not. Then turn this negative belief into a positive power statement, have it with you and read it numerous times during the day, especially in the morning before you go to work and in the evening before you go to bed.

Now let’s get into the action steps for day #2:

1. Write down one of your goals that you’d love to accomplish but feel overwhelmed by.

Next, list seven or fewer of the highest priority action steps that you could do that would allow you to accomplish this goal.

2. If any of these smaller action steps still feel overwhelming, chunk each one down even further into smaller actions. Keep chunking your activities until you feel that you have a clear road ahead to the accomplishment of your goal.

3. After you’ve chunked this overwhelming and stressful goal down into easy action – steps, then decide the priority that you would love to do them in.

Affirmation:

I accomplish my big goals one simple step at a time.

Now write your affirmation in your journal or on a separate piece of paper.

Overcome the obstacles and reach the top of your goal.

Law of attraction reading for the week of 22 January 2018

law of attraction

Welcome to my weekly law of attraction reading. I am using the deck from Esther and Jerry Hicks :

For the week of the 22 January 2018 I pulled the following card:

When focusing upon solutions, I feel good.

Focusing upon a solution brings you positive emotion; focusing upon a problem brings you negative emotion. While the differences are subtle, they are very important, for when you are feeling positive emotion, you are attracting into your experiences that which you want. When you are feeling negative emotion, you are in the process of attracting that which you do not want.

31 days from stress to success

goal setting

I am excited to announce the 31-day challenge: From stress to success. I invite you to participate and follow the action steps.

Is this challenge for you?

If you feel stressed with your current work and life situation and tried to overcome your stress already but didn’t get the results you wanted, then you are right where you are meant to be.

Are you ready to apply powerful and practical action steps to your daily routines, which will help you transform your perceived stresses into achieved successes? This upcoming challenge is for those who are sure they are ready to live more fulfilling and inspired lives!

You know that stress is impacting your health and life. What if you could turn that stress into success? What kind of life could you then live? Could you save energy instead of feeling drained all the time, or direct your life instead of being a slave to it, build self-worth instead of destroying it or love your relationships instead of sabotaging them? You could heal your body instead of disordering it; sleep peacefully instead of tossing and turning every night and just have a more fabulous life.

Yes, you can! Stress impacts all areas of your life: health, finance, relationships and family, spirituality, career, social and mental life.

Everyone wants to be successful, whatever that means for you. Everyone wants to perform as well as possible in their careers, nobody wants to be a failure.

So what is the impact on all areas of our life?

  • Health/ relationships/ social life: Stress makes us sick, many diseases nowadays are caused by stress. And if we are ill and tired all the time, it can override any other areas of your life too. You might be too tired to do anything with your family or partner or friends.
  • Career: When we get sick too often because of stress, our career life suffers. We are not performing the way we were used to. We lose motivation. When not performing at work, we may experience even performance management at work which is not fun to have. In worst case scenarios we might lose our job which then has an impact on our finances.
  • Finance: If you are too stressed and sick, you will need to spend money on your doctor’s appointments or medication. You will have less money to spend on things you always dreamed of. A lack of money is causing more stress and can cause other health issues.
  • Mental: All of the above has an impact on our mental health: we might suffer from depression or start experiencing anxiety attacks which then is impacting all of our life areas again to another new level.

But now let’s stop being negative. I have some excellent news for you. You can transform your life for the better right now.

2018 will be different – I am starting a 31-day challenge today, which will transform your life and helps you to reduce your stress, overcome burnout and turn your stress into success.

Ready?

Let’s start with action step #1: Write and read your goals

We all have goals in different areas of our life. Goals can be long- or short-term. Others have dreams and desires but actually, don’t believe in them, so they start sabotaging themselves.

That’s the important thing about your goal. What is it your heart desires? Make sure it is your goal and not a goal of others or other’s people expectations.

When setting goals, make sure they are smart. What does smart goal mean? Great question: s stands for – specific, m – measurable, a – achievable, r – realistic and t – time-based.  Once you know what your goals are, distinguish if it is a long-term or a short-term goal. Ensure your goal is not a fantasy. Otherwise, you will see yourself punishing yourself up for not achieving it.

Setting goals are compelling. You know the feeling of accomplishing one of your short-term goals. It feels great and gives you an energy hump. But also long-term intentions are very powerful. To be successful, we have to focus on the end result and be disciplined day to day or year to year. An important fact to mention is that your goal is indeed coming from your inner self and aligns with what you value most. As soon as you say: I should, I need, or I have to….it is not your goal but from other persons or social idealism. The minute you notice you say: I want to…. I’d love to…you know it is you:)

When focussing on a long-term goal, it makes us feel enthusiastic to get things done in the here and now. Imagine your goal is to improve your running for half an hour. By the time you ran half an hour, you will be tired. But if your goal is to train for a marathon, you probably won’t even notice that you already run for half an hour.

Long-term goals, however, can’t be accomplished without first succeeding in short-term goals. We have to chunk down the big goal into smaller achievable goals. Otherwise, we can get easily frustrated and end up punishing ourselves or give up altogether.

Now, I invite you to do the following action steps:

  1. Each morning before you get up, meditate on your personal dreams or goals. Visualise your end result. Feel it, see it, taste it and smell it. Use all of your senses.
  2. Ask for guidance from the highest and most inspired part of yourself. Trust your intuition. You know best what is right for you and what you want to achieve in your life.
  3. Write and read these goals daily.

Affirmation:

My goals are clear. They are written from my heart. I can see my light upon the horizon.

I encourage you to write your own affirmation using your own words. This is way more powerful.

Welcome to my weekly law of attraction reading. I am using the deck from Esther and Jerry Hicks :

For the week of the 15 January 2018 I pulled the following card:

I know who I really am.

You are an extension of non-physical energy. You are, indeed, an extension of that which we are. We are known as teacher, and we are known as Abraham. And we are together because of our matching intentions and desires.

Welcome to my weekly law of attraction reading. I am using the deck from Esther and Jerry Hicks :

For the week of the 8 January 2018 I pulled the following card:

My every relationship can now feel better

By intending – as you are moving into a segment of relationships – to focus upon your points of harmony; to give your great attention, not to what you are disagreeing about, but to the things you agree upon…that is the resolution in all relationships. For when you focus on what you do not like, by the law of attraction, you solicit more of what you do not want.

I wish you all a happy new year. Let’s start the new year with some positive thoughts and intentions for this amazing year 2018.

For this I am using the deck from Esther and Jerry Hicks :

For the week of the 1 January 2018 I pulled the following card:

The thoughts I think today are prepaving my future.

Every thought that you think that is directed toward what you want for your future is of great benefit to you. Every thought that you are thinking about your future that you do not want is a disadvantage to you. Whether thinking of vitality and health, or decline and disease….you are prepaving your future.

Welcome to my weekly law of attraction reading. I am using the deck from Esther and Jerry Hicks :

For the week of the 26 December 2017 I pulled the following card:

My thought manifestations enjoy a buffer of time

In an attraction – based universe, there is no such thing as no. Your attention to it says yes to it. In your physical reality, things do not manifest instantly, for there is a wonderful buffer of time that gives you the opportunity to redirect your attention more toward what you do want to experience.

10 healthy on-the-go snacks inside…

Alex here to tell you that there are really healthy snacks out there that you can eat on-the-go and guilt-free!

But first, why am I talking about healthy on-the-go snacks?

I’m talking about healthy snacks today because our modern lives get so busy, and that makes it hard to find time to suss out a healthy snack.

But that doesn’t mean you have to compromise your health by settling for Twinkies!

So, what’s important about healthy snacking?

Healthy snacks are important for those in-between meal moments because they:

  • Sustain your energy from meal to meal
  • Stabilize your blood sugar
  • Keep your mood steady and focus sharp

So how do I know what to look out for in healthy, on-the-go snacks? 

  • Nuts—an excellent source of high protein:

Look for raw or dry roasted and stay away from nuts with additives like vegetable oil and salt as these can turn rancid if they sit in a bag in a store.

  • Fruit—packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants:

Look for organic fruit like bananas packed with potassium and oranges loaded with Vitamin C

  • Yogurt—high in protein and good source of healthy fats:

Look for full-fat, organic yogurt or ones that do not contain artificial flavors or sweeteners like corn syrup.

  • Hard boiled eggs—high source of protein and will keep your blood sugars level:

Boil them the night before and throw a couple in your bag.

  • Peanut butter sandwich—also high in protein and stabilizes blood sugar:

Look for a brand that is organic or free of additives.

  • Energy bars—a much healthier and nutritious alternative to chocolate bars:

Avoid brands with soy protein isolate and look for brands that contain over 10 grams of whey protein, hemp protein or pea protein.

  • Dark chocolate—high in natural caffeine that can give you that energy boost:

Look for brands that list cacao as the first ingredient not sugar.

  • Trail Mix—packed with a combo of proteins and sugars to increase your energy:

Look for a mix that doesn’t contain added vegetable oil and salt or buy a variety of nuts, seeds, raisins and cranberries at the health store to mix yourself.

  • Raw veggies—slices of raw veggies are loaded with vitamins and minerals:

Choose organic veggies where possible and cut the morning of to maintain their maximum nutrients instead of buying pre-cut slices in a bag.

  • Seeds—pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds are high in sources of vegetable protein:

Look for raw seeds wherever possible. You can find them in the bulk food section.

What do I do now?

If you want to make sure that you’re eating healthy all the time, then click here now to schedule a time to talk with me 1-on-1. I can help you shortlist the best foods for your body, so you can feel great and look great now!
