TIP: How Doubt Sabotages You

September 27, 2016

Doubt is like a blindfold that hides your success.

Consider these scenarios:

#1 You want something you believe you can have. This alignment feels good.

  • Results: Life brings you outcomes that match your feelings. What you imagined or something better manifests.

#2 You want something, but you begin to doubt and wonder “what if” it doesn’t work. This gap in alignment between what you want but think you can’t have feels bad. Or you’re so disappointed from past failures, you’re afraid to believe.

  • Results:  Life brings you outcomes that match your feelings. Things go haywire and don’t work just as you said they wouldn’t. Just as they haven’t been.

Why does positive expectation create positively and doubt sabotage?

Think of playing notes on an instrument.

  • Let’s say, in #1, you’re a note and your goal’s a note. When you feel good, there’s harmony. Energy aligns. You attract success.
  • When you introduce doubt, as in #2, you’re playing two notes that are in discord. Discord isn’t a vibrational match for you and your goal. Things go kerflooey (yes, this actually is a word).

Negative energy occurs when your thoughts and feelings are in opposition to your goals.

Your soul tells you one thing (yes, you can do it); your ego tells you the opposite (maybe… no, you can’t).

When you feel doubt, your energy is adversarial to what you want and hinders your success.  

Your TIP is to feel good, let go of doubting that you can succeed – and focus on this belief regardless of appearances.

Don’t believe your doubt.

Don’t buy into whatever is yucky in your life and act like that’s the ultimate truth.

The yuck was created because of your focus on limiting beliefs like doubt.

You CAN change your focus by making a decision to change it.

Actually, this isn’t even a hologram. It’s an illusion of an illusion called augmented reality.

Don’t be blinded by your world of illusion and feel down because you don’t like what you see, then fill yourself with doubt because you can’t figure out how something can work.

There’s always a way out.

Believe.

TIP: Having an I Love Lucy moment?

September 20, 2016

You’ve probably talked with someone who suddenly went off on you for no good reason. You’re like whaaa… what just happened?

Lately, getting a knee jerk reaction is easy if you mention something that others perceive to be opposed to their political viewpoint. Many have linked their well being and ability to be free on somebody outside themselves.

By the way, the only person who can make you happy and fulfilled is you. So don’t give away your power to anyone.

Now that you’ve got an idea of what I’m talking about, let’s bring it closer to home with your goals and some of your reactions.

Maybe you don’t lash out like Lucy did in her skit “Slowly I Turn,” which is found at the end of this TIP, but you feel that way inside.

For example, what response do you feel in your gut or heart when you hear or think about any of these:

  • You need money that you don’t have, and then you have visions of being in a stagecoach heading off the cliff (okay, I’m still watching a lot of old westerns).
  • You compare your success to others and decide you’re not keeping up with the Joneses, whoever they are – and what do they have to do with your life anyway?
  • You think you’re not accomplishing your goals fast enough and want to cry in your beer over remorse for not having had a better life – particularly disconcerting if you don’t drink beer.

These very emotions then attract more emotions to match!

And that’s why, if your life or business suck in some way, it starts with you.

To manifest anything other than the uglies, it’s essential to feel good REGARDLESS of your outer circumstances.

If you’re ready for something better, then change your perspective  This is 100% in your power to do.

When you see life from a different vantage point, your feelings change.

This creates Good Feeling Mojo, and you ignite your momentum for more things that will inspire you to feel good.

Most people react emotionally to circumstances.

You can use your head, too.

How do you know what you’re doing? Look at your life.

Ready for something more or better?  

Your TIP is to let go of ONE trigger to which you reflexively react.

Why only one? Because by releasing one pattern, there’s an entourage of others attached to it that will go away, too.

If you continue to get results you don’t want, I invite you to contact me about how to break free of going in circles at vg@ResolvedForResults.com

Now to demonstrate triggers, watch this funny, classic I Love Lucy clip.

It’s only 3 1/2 minutes. You can find the time.

TIP: Benefits of a Breakdown

September 13, 2016

What was up with last week’s TIP with *|FNAME}* written instead of your name?

Things don’t always go the way we think they would or should.

Regardless of appearances, if we look, we’ll find a silver lining.

I lost my internet connection early Friday afternoon, and the service provider already left for the holiday weekend.

Benefit: I took the weekend off to play and do other things instead of focusing on a deadline for my new Soulgoals website.

Monday morning I received a call from my ISP. Ah, just in time to send you my TIP.

As I was ready to hit send, the connection dropped again.

No worries, I’ll use my cell phone. Simple.

Instead, I deleted it.

My neighbor let me use her computer.

I printed what I had written on my PC and retyped it on her small screen… which is how I ended up writing *|FNAME}* instead of your name.

As the TIP was about not making things laborious, and this became a three-hour process, I decided to take a short cut.

I cut the number of words to 1/3rd.

Benefit: Every week, I had an intention to shorten my TIPS, and it didn’t quite happen. Using my fatigue as “inspiration,” life showed me how.

Your TIP is to see how your life is being rearranged to make things better.

Breakdowns or things falling apart often precede breakthroughs.

Don’t beat yourself up.

Dump the guilt and blame.

This is a moment when you can let go of your resistance and open to new perspectives.

Redirect your focus from the breakdown to the benefits.

Benefit: My breakdown provided the idea to share today’s TIP with you.

When you go through a hard period,

When everything seems to oppose you,

… When you feel you cannot even bear one more minute,

NEVER GIVE UP!

Because it is the time and place that the course will divert!

TIP: Don’t Labor

September 6, 2016

Look up synonyms for labor, and you’ll find words like hard work, drudgery, struggle, toil and exhausting.

Society has trained us to believe that work, work, work, the harder we work, is the way to get ahead.

That work alone will bring you results is a flawed premise.

A man was looking for a job.

He sent out 50 resumes.

However, he told me he didn’t expect to get any replies.

Massive action – yes.

Results – zilch.

Hard work and action aren’t the keys.

Inspired action is.

Resolved for Results Mastermind Principle #4 is:

I am open to the mastermind energy leading me, and I take action by following through with my inspiration and guidance.

For success, align your energy for results FIRST and then take action.

Instead of putting your nose to the grindstone (ouch), FEEL GOOD before taking action.

Your TIP for success is FIRST to have fun and create momentum with Good Feeling Mojo, then take action.

It takes practice to build your Good Feeling Mojo muscle.

It works the opposite of weight lifting.

You build this muscle by letting go of the weight of the world – your problems, politics and pains.

What’s left is your natural state – happy, free, having fun, being fulfilled.

The more you’re aligned with You, like a magnet, the more opportunities come your way.

It’s what we call being on a magic carpet ride of success.

Try it out. Instead of laboring, enjoy life and what you do.

Not only will you receive far greater results, you’ll create an even better life that’s worth living.
