Positive Self-Talk for Effective New Year’s Resolutions

Hi Friends,

At the start of a brand-new year, we rigorously start setting fresh goals and forming New Year’s resolutions. Do you find yourself reflecting on last year’s resolutions and feeling disappointed that you did not see them through? One of the primary reasons for not achieving goals is negative self-talk.

Self-talk is internal conversation with yourself, like your own personal chatter. In order to be open to beneficial opportunities, and have a positive outlook on life, yourself, and others, you must avoid using negative self-talk.

Here are some examples of self-talk:

Negative Self-Talk

  • I can’t do this
  • I’m not good enough
  • I am too ______ (short, slow, untrained) to ever complete this goal

Positive Self-Talk

  • I am able to do or learn this
  • I am good enough
  • I will figure out how to compensate for ______ to achieve this goal

Make a conscious effort to monitor the way you process information. If you are constantly dwelling on past issues and using negative words to describe yourself, or your goals, you must make a habit of retraining your brain. Self-talk actually sends messages to your subconscious brain to form habits that coincide with what you are thinking.

If you continue to use the same negative self-talk, your subconscious will keep your habits aligned with the familiarity of past (and possibly bad) habits. On the flip side, using positive self-talk aids in reprogramming your brain to start forming goal-oriented habits. You will be on your way to realizing those New Year’s goals before you know it!

What Does It Take To "Have It All" In Life?

Many people have asked me why I created my program, “Having It All,” and I realize that some people simply do not believe that it is possible to ‘have it all.’ Well, I am going to dispel that rumor once and for all.

If you are serious about learning what it takes, then read on and I’ll take you on a short journey. I’ll also share with you two incredible resources I’ve created – more on that later.

First, let’s suppose that at some point in the past, for whatever reason, by whichever means, there was a big bang, or there was not. It doesn’t really matter. All we know is somehow, our universe, solar system, galaxies, and planets are here, (and specifically our planet) and that’s where I’ll begin.

The number being thrown around right now is that our universe is at least 12.5 billion years old. The reason for the prelude is to set the stage for some thought and greater understanding.

While you and I do what we do every day, there are others who study the “what” and “how” of the universe. They are figuring out how it all began, what the galaxies are, and even closer to home, what our planets are and how they do what they do. How this occurred is irrelevant at this point. It just is. After all, we’re pretty sure the planets and galaxies were all here before us.

Instead, I like to think of our universe and planet Earth as our ‘playing field’, and our body and mind as ‘the vehicles’ we have been given to play on the field. So here we are, on this field, and we now have two choices:

  • One is to play on the field
  • Two is to be a spectator

Either way, the game is on, and you must choose whether you are going to play or watch. If you have chosen to play, let me explain to you that that there are people who study the playing field every day. They have discovered very specific natural laws that govern our universe, galaxies and planet.

If you are a serious player, knowing these laws, and understanding them would have a serious impact on how well you play the game, don’t you think?

There is one Great Law that suggests that everything we see (and can’t see) is made up of energy. There are also seven other major natural laws that work synergistically, and they allow the playing field to do what it does with such ease and perfection. Unfortunately, we have never been taught how to be in harmony with these laws.

It’s time we raise our awareness and begin playing at a higher level…

Let’s leave the laws alone for a moment, and discuss our body and mind.

For the most part, the physical body is easy to understand. We have studied it for over 6,000 years, and have learned a couple of tricks to keep it going faster and longer. We have five physical senses to help us decipher and understand the stimuli around us or on us.

The mind, however, is a little bit more complex. Scientists and theologians have discovered that we have six intellectual functions that are part of our conscious mind, and we also have three subconscious functions that assist us with much more complex issues and needs.

So here we are, playing the game, and I ask you this question, ‘How well do you understand the basic natural laws of the playing field, and how well do you understand the functions of the body and mind?’

For many people the answer is the same. Not very well. The reason we do not know the answers, is because we have never been taught to look at the whole picture. Very few people have studied and understood how to connect the whole deal in a way that it is easy to understand and apply.

I will suggest that in order to ‘Have It All’, you must first understand the basics for making it possible. Look around you and observe the perfection and precision in everything. There are no accidents. It all operates by exact order.

If you choose not to learn how all of it works, that is totally up to you. You are then choosing to play at a mediocre level, and not at the level you are capable of.

As I mentioned before, you make the decisions on whether to play or watch, and then, how well you want to play. Learning the playing field and how you function makes the game much more fun!

Not knowing the basic laws is like not understanding gravity. Not understanding yourself is like being a pilot who doesn’t know exactly how all of her plane’s instruments work. Would YOU get on that plane?

Even once we understand the playing field, and the optimum way to use our body and mind, we still need to learn the rules relating to the five different games being played… those games are called health, wealth, relationships, career, and spirituality.

The games are complex, especially if we aren’t taught the rules, angles and ways to win. Once again, if we choose to learn, the games become much more fun and easier to play.

I have invested more than 20 years into this exact research and have discovered the fastest and simplest way to have what I want. My deepest desire is that you discover a few things to make your journey outstanding.

All you must do is be open to learn how to play, and grow again like you did when you were a child.

Whatever you do, remember to create a masterpiece with your life. It is your choice!

Finish Strong

Hi friends,

The other day I was watching a short movie called Finish Strong, and I was reminded of the story of Wilma Rudolf.

Wilma Rudolf was born July 23, 1940 into a large family of 22 in Clarksville, Tennessee. Growing up in a community parted by racial discrimination, Wilma never received proper medical attention as a child. She was diagnosed with one illness after another: measles, mumps, scarlet fever, chicken pox and double pneumonia. Until finally she was diagnosed with polio, a crippling disease that had no cure and doctors told her mother that Wilma would never walk.

Wilma’s mother drove her to be treated twice a week at Meharry Hospital, the black medical college in Nashville, even though it was 50 miles away and the family was strapped for funds. After 2 years, Wilma was able to walk with the aid of metal leg braces and by the age of 12 she could walk normally with no assistance. It was then that she decided to become an athlete.

“My mother taught me very early to believe I could achieve any accomplishment I wanted to. The first was to walk without braces,” said Wilma. She would go on to win three gold medals in a single Olympics and be placed in the Olympics Hall of Fame.

Amazing stories like this remind me of how fortunate I have been in life and proves that with a mindset for success and a will to succeed anything can be accomplished.

If you could live your life over…

Hi Friends,

This is a short piece that was sent to me by one of my friends and clients Nandi Shastry, CEO of Brainy Betty (www.brainybetty.com).

Dr. Anthony Campolo, Professor of Sociology, Eastern College, St. Davids, Pennsylvania, shares the results of a survey where 50 people 95 years and older were asked: “If you could live your life over what would you do differently?” The answers surprised me. These old folks said that if they could live their lives over they would…

1. Reflect more.

These seniors said they would take the time to think about what was going on and live their lives along well-thought-out priorities. They would contemplate the meaning of life, family, work and much more.

2. Risk more.

These wonderful aged human beings said they would have taken more chances in life. If they could re-live their lives they wouldn’t be so scared to take risks. They would have developed more courage to venture out of their comfort zones.

3. Do things that would outlast them.

They wanted to know that their lives counted for something, that long after they left this world, somehow their impact would live on. We all can learn something from these people about setting goals.

Let’s take a moment to consider what they said as you set the course for your life.

To Having It All,

John
