6 Limiting Beliefs Holding You Back From Success

Limiting beliefs put you in a cycle of self-destruction. You want to be successful. But you’re doing everything in your power to make sure that it never happens. How?

Because you always find a reason it shouldn’t. You could have a cure for a disease and you still would find a reason that it wasn’t the right time or that you don’t know enough yet. And you’re wasting all that incredible power you have. It’s not entirely your fault though. You’ve trained yourself to think that way. You tell yourself the story that something else is the problem over and over again until you believe it.

These thoughts are called limiting beliefs. And they’re the biggest roadblock to your success ever. The best part though about it all…You have the power to change them.

In this blog I’m going to show you how to change your limiting beliefs. By the end of this article I promise you’ll have a fool proof solution to each of your limiting beliefs.

Here we go!

1. “I Can’t Do It.”

Who said? This limiting belief is the most common limiting beliefs I hear. Yet it’s one of the biggest lies you will ever tell yourself. The root of this is the fear of failure. It’s not that you can’t do it. It’s that you’re scared that you might fail miserably if you try.

Which, technically, you might.

Ok… so what? Everyone fails at some point. If you don’t try something new your life can never change. Which is a much scarier thought than failure. If you truly don’t think you can do something, make it so easy you can’t fail.

For example, if you want to quit smoking don’t go cold turkey. If you smoke a pack day now then smoke 19 tomorrow. You could do that without even trying. You just need to take that first step.

2.“I Don’t Know Enough Yet.”

You will never feel like you know enough. This limiting belief is a lie because it’s really the fear of taking action. The truth is you won’t ever know enough. Life is about learning all the time. But knowing everything isn’t the goal. Knowing more than the people you are talking to is.

If you are wanting to start a project on something you’re passionate about: a book, a blog, a business, a website or a YouTube Channel – you already know enough to start. So take some action. Take that first step despite how much you think you know.  Because as long as you know more than the average person, you’ll be fine.

3. “They Can’t Afford It.”

If you run a business this belief is on your mind all of the time. But why? You don’t know what someone can or can’t afford. Unless you have a breakdown of their monthly expenses you can’t possibly know. You’re guessing. And you’ve probably guessed wrong.

You can look at this in two different ways:

If they want it they will find the money

If they can’t find the money you don’t want them

What you’re really scared of here is rejection. That someone might not want you’re selling. But guess what? You’ve got bills you need to pay. So that’s not a worry you can entertain.

Value your time. Value your product. Value yourself. Each no is one step closer to a yes, and someone who can afford it.

4. “I Don’t Have The Time.”

You’re reading this blog post right now, aren’t you? That tells me that you do actually have spare time. That not every single minute of your day is taken up with something important. Spare time that could be spent on something important to you.

How many times do you check these each day?

Check Facebook

Update Twitter

Check Instagram

Check Snapchat

Send Text’s

Answer E-mails

Have 5 plus minutes that you just zone out

Watch TV

I can bet the answer is probably, ‘Too Much.’ In fact, the average person can save 45 minutes a day by not checking their Facebook feed. Again this is the fear of taking action at it’s finest. It’s just a new disguise. If time really is an issue make a set schedule and follow it.

Put that important task you’ve been putting off: reading, writing, marketing, painting– you name it – to the beginning of your day. Make it the first thing you do. You’ll suddenly realise you have a lot more time than you think. And you’ll be thankful of the results.

5. “It’s Not The Right Time.”

This is going to be hard to hear. But, there is no right time. Deep down you know it too. There are, of course, bad times to start things. If you’re laid up in bed with with a back injury, now probably isn’t the right time to commit to starting a new business.

But you’re not, are you?

Time is one of those things you have no control over. You’re just scared about what’s going to happen when you start. That you might fail. People might not like what you’re doing. That you might not even like what you’re doing. But instead of waiting for the perfect day, which rarely comes, make a start and take action. Get it going now. Forget about the limiting beliefs, because the right time will never come and this will be another regret to add to your list.

6. “I’m Not Good Enough.”

Whether you’re a world famous author or a person sitting behind a 9-5 desk job, you will never think you’re good enough. And that’s a good thing. Because when you think you’re good enough, that you’re entitled to something, that’s when you truly start to fail. Always strive to learn more. Always strive to do better. Always remember there is someone out there who is better than you are at something. But never let it stop you from doing what it is that you need to do. So, challenge your limiting beliefs and change your lifestyle.

I hope this helps give you a kick in the butt to throw those limiting beliefs out the door. Get out there and start making moves to do what you really want to do in life.

6 Reasons Being Organized Will Help Your Life

Being Organized Reduces Stress:

People who describe their homes as cluttered or full of unfinished projects tend to be more depressed, fatigued, and have higher stress levels than people who felt their homes were restful and organized.

Surprised?

When you come home to clutter or a list of To Dos, it may prevent the natural decline in cortisol (the stress hormone) that occurs over the course of the day, researchers say. This can and will take a toll on your mood, sleep, health, and more. Taking the time to tackle those piles of laundry, sort through stacks of papers, and organize your space won’t just clear away the physical stuff, it’ll actually help you feel happier and more relaxed.

Being Organized Makes You More Productive:

Clutter is distracting, and research confirms that it can actually affect your ability to focus. Looking at too many things at once gives you sensory overload. De-cluttering your desk will payoff at work, but the benefits won’t stop there. When you’re organized at work, you’re more productive and efficient, which means you’re able to finish on time and go home. This leaves you with more time for your needs like to exercise, prepare a meal, relax, and get more sleep. Clutter in the home works the same way. You can either spend your days going through clutter regularly or get organized, stay organized and enjoy your space! You’ll find you have time to do other projects or get out and do things without feeling stressed.

Being Organized Improves Your Health:

You’re probably wondering how organization has anything to do with your health. Being an organized person helps you stay accountable for many things in your life. People who set short-term goals, have a plan, and are more likely to stick with an exercise program than those who show up to the gym and wing it. Using organizing skills to be more organized about exercise makes you more aware of your progress, which motivates you to stay accountable even when you don’t feel like it. This will also help you be more mindful about what you put into your body. When you are holding yourself more accountable about exercise the food will follow because you don’t want to ruin that good workout. Another way being organized helps improve your health is you will find that you sleep better. When things are in place as they should be in your life then your mind will also be calm. Between a good exercise regimen and eating a balanced diet your sleep will be on point. All of these things improve your overall health and quality of life!

Being Organized Makes You Love Your Home/Work Space:

This truly is a no brain-er. When you stay organized you can regularly find whatever you are looking for. Your space is clean and highly functional. Who doesn’t love a clean organized environment? It makes you love being in that space because it brings a sense of calmness and relaxation into your mind.

Being Organized Boosts Your Self-Esteem:

Being organized makes you feel more accomplished. This is one of the best ways to boost self-esteem. Go to your dresser and open it. Is it a complete disaster? If so, pull out all those clothes and dump them on the floor. Get rid of the things you no longer wear, and fold the clothes you want to keep. Stack them according to color and season. I love keeping my closet color coded and shirt/pant type. This way, when you wake up in the morning you’ll know exactly where everything is and what you want to wear. You will be amazed at how much better your clothes feel and look on you. I also love to have my bathroom organized with containers under my cabinets. I can always locate what I need when I need it and it makes me feel so good inside!

Being Organized Save You Time And Money:

Organization keeps you from buying items you already have, but you’ve forgotten about or lost in your household or workplace. Did you know lost item replacement is roughly an 80 million dollar business? Being organized can save you so much money and time it takes to replace the items.

Mountain Ocean Skin Trip Lotion Review

  Every once in a while I like to post a review on a product that I use and love. I like to review products that are part of self-care. The product I am reviewing today is called Mountain Oceans Skin Trip Lotion. I actually stumbled across this lotion due to my husband. We were shopping in Sprouts one day and he is always on the hunt for a good lotion because he has sensitive skin. He said he had been eyeballing this lotion for some time but hadn’t picked it up because it’s about $13.00 a bottle. We came home and he popped it open and put some on. I could not believe the smell of this lotion! If you are anything like me I love a smell that takes me away to the Ocean and that is exactly what this lotion did! All my life I have been searching for a lotion that I can put on and it doesn’t turn into a weird smell after wearing it for a bit. I also have been on the hunt for the perfect beach smell. The smell is like warm toasted coconut milk with a splash of blue sky, warm bright sun, and feet in the sand. When I wear this lotion, which is almost daily, I don’t even have to wear perfume. The smell is strong and it lasts. It smells so good you will want to EAT it. As for the moisturizing part it’s amazing. Your skin absorbs this lotion so nicely and it leaves your skin with a glow. I have found that I do not have to reapply this lotion at all. Once a day is about all you need. The lotion has a light smooth feel to it. I have even put a little on my face after being in the sun and it did not make my face break out like some lotions do.  Mountain Ocean has been around and operated by the same family since 1971. They claim that their products are made in small batches to make sure their products are high quality and fresh. I believe this entirely! I can really tell the quality of this product as I put it on my skin. For people who are looking to put the least amount of chemicals on their skin this would be a good product to use. Their products contain whole natural ingredients and are high quality. For all those people who don’t like animal testing, good news they do No Animal Testing! This product may seem a little pricey but it is most definitely worth it! I have yet to try any of their other products but I can say this will continue to be a product in my self-care regimen. My skin has never felt so good! You can find this product at Sprouts and I have also found it on Amazon. Here is the link to Amazon where I have regularly purchased it. Mountain Ocean Coconut Skin Trip Lotion. Please leave comments with some of your self-care products, I would love to see what other people use in their daily regimens!

Hormones and Exercise…A Key Factor For Your Health

athletes-cardio-dirt-road-34495

True Growth Coaching Website

Understanding the effects of exercise is key to understanding the relationship between insulin and glucagon. As your activity level increases, glucose uptake by the body’s cells also increases. This is because of an increased sensitivity of the cells to the insulin. Insulin levels will drop during physical activity. At the same time glucagon secretion by the pancreas increases to help maintain a steady supply of blood glucose.

Understanding Your Hormones

Catecholamines: There are two catecholamines, epinephrine or aka “adrenaline” and norepinephrine. These are hormones produced by the adrenal glands, which are located on top of each kidney. These hormones help prepare the body for activity. These hormones are part of the stress response also know as fight or flight response. In preparation for activity, the part of the brain called the hypothalamus, triggers the adrenal glands to secrete more epinephrine (adrenaline). This will give you several physiological effects that will help your body sustain exercise activity. Some of these include: elevates blood glucose levels, helps to redistribute blood to working tissues, opens up the airways and increases heart rate and stroke volume.

Testosterone and Estrogen: For both males and females testosterone plays a vital role in growth and repair of tissue. Raised levels of testosterone are indicative of an anabolic training status (tissue-building). Estrogen has many functions, but it mainly influences fat deposition around the hips, butt, and thighs. Regular exercise lowers estrogen levels, which in turn lowers your risk for such problems like breast cancer and added hormonal fat.

Cortisol: Cortisol is typically referred to as a catabolic hormone. This means it is associated with tissue breakdown. Under times of stress, such as exercise, cortisol is secreted by the adrenal glands and works to maintain energy supply through breaking down carbohydrates, fats, and protein. High levels of cortisol brought on by overtraining, excessive stress, poor sleep, and bad nutrition can lead to breakdown of muscle tissue, along with other harmful side effects.

Growth Hormone: Growth Hormone is released from the pituitary gland in the brain and is regulated by the hypothalamus. Growth hormone is activated by several factors like: estrogen, testosterone, deep sleep, and active exercise. Primarily, Growth Hormone is an anabolic hormone that is responsible for most of the development and growth during childhood. Once one hits puberty the sex hormones take over from there. Growth Hormone increases strengthens the immune system, increases fat burning, increases bone development, muscle tissue, and protein synthesis.

Thyroid Hormones: The thyroid gland releases vital hormones that are mainly responsible for the human metabolism. The pituitary gland regulates the release of the thyroid hormones. The thyroid is responsible for regulating many systems in our bodies. Some of these systems it regulates are: basal metabolic rate, body temperature, breathing rate, heart rate, protein synthesis, metabolizing carbohydrates, fat and protein. Low thyroid function is a well-known disorder which causes fatigue, depression, weight gain, sensitivity to cold and low metabolism.

Research shows that after strength training and active aerobic exercise, testosterone and growth hormone levels increase, while estrogen levels decrease. Research has also shown that there can be negative effects after intense prolonged endurance training. It could lead to lower testosterone levels and a rise in cortisol levels. Exercising has a significant impact on hormone secretions and it is important to understand how they work. Having knowledge of these hormones can greatly improve your health.

14 Habits That Happy Couples Have In Common

True Growth Coaching Website

A happy couple is not by any means a perfect couple that just happens overnight, but an imperfect couple that learns to enjoy each other’s differences, and works together every day to create something special and unbreakable. In other words, a great relationship isn’t luck, it requires effort and care to grow and evolve in ways that keep both partners happy.

I have read several books on relationships, coached many couples who were struggling to find happiness in their relationships, and have been up against my very own personal experiences. All of this has given me insight into the specific behaviors that make two people happy as a couple. Here is what I’ve found to be in common with most happy couples relationships:

1. They practice self-care as individuals

I talk about self-care regularly with my clients. It’s a very important aspect of my work. Relationships don’t create happiness, they reflect it. Happiness comes from within. Relationships are simply mirrors of the combined ecstasy that two people have as individuals. What you see in the mirror is what you see in your relationships. Your dislikes in your partner are often your dislikes about yourself. Your acceptance of your partner often reflects your acceptance of yourself. The first step to having a healthy relationship with someone else is to have a healthy relationship with yourself. If you love yourself then you will radiate love to your partner.

2. They stand together and refuse to let outsiders have a say in their relationship.

Relationships don’t always make sense, especially to outsiders. So don’t let outsiders run your relationship for you. Many times outsiders have a bit of jealousy because of the current state of their relationships and can unintentionally sabotage yours and your partners. If you’re having an issue with your partner, work it out with THEM only! You have to live your own lives your own way… that’s all there is to it. It’s our duty, and ours alone, to decide if a relationship is right for us. If you and your partner both agree that it is right, and it’s worth working on, don’t bring the outside in. It’s ok to have privacy these days.

3. They know their relationship is a unique, uncomparable bond

This I can say I know from true experience. No one understands my husbands and my relationship like we do, and really, we like it that way! Don’t compare your relationship to anyone else’s. Every couple makes their own relationship rules, love agreements, and habits. Just focus on what you two share, and make your unique bond the best it can be.  All relationships have their ups and downs, they do not stay on a continuous blissful high. Working together through the hard times will make your relationship stronger in the end.

4. They are intimate about everything

Sex is not the only thing to be intimate about. Sex doesn’t always equal love either. Especially in the beginning of a relationship, attraction and pleasure in sex are often mistaken for love. Sex is amazing but it’s the easy part. Intimacy is far more and what makes relationships last. It requires honest communication and openness about concerns, fears and sadness, as well as hopes, dreams and happiness.

5. They don’t try to change each other

Our biggest need in life is to be accepted as we are. Sometimes we try to make our partners into what we want them to be, what we think we need, love, or desire. But these expectations and perceptions are against reality, against their benefit and ours, and always end in disappointment, because it is not who they are. The foundation of love is to let your partner be their true self’s, because that is who we are supposed to be in love with. Otherwise we fall in love only with our own fantasies, and miss out entirely on their true beauty. Instead of trying to change your partner, give them your support and grow together.

6. They go on dates or spend quality time alone

They take date nights with each other. If you neglect your relationship, your relationship will neglect you too. With busy schedules we often forget to relax and enjoy each other. In relationships distance is measured in affection, not miles. Two people can be right next to each other and yet miles apart. So don’t ignore the one you love, because lack of attention often hurts more than angry words. I love our date nights. We have 8 kids so date nights are much needed. Sometimes our date nights are simply cooking a special meal and checking out to our room where we watch a movie without kids! Whatever it may be as long as we get to be together.

7. Communication is the Golden Rule

Your partner is not a mind reader. Communicate your thoughts. Give them the information they need rather than expecting them to know. The more that remains unspoken, the greater the risk for problems. Start communicating clearly. Most problems, big and small, within a relationship, start with bad communication.

Listening is also part of communication. Listen intently before replying. Don’t listen so you can reply, listen to understand. Open your ears and mind to your partner’s concerns and opinions without judgment. Look at things from your partner’s perspective as well as your own. Most people fail to understand that communication is both speaking and listening.

8. They don’t play games with each other’s heads and hearts

Cheating and lying aren’t struggles, they’re reasons relationships break up. Relationships fall apart quite easily when they’ve been held together with lies. The truth is, relationships don’t hurt. Lying, cheating and twisting reality until it plays with someone’s emotions is what hurts. Promises mean everything, but after they’re broken, sorry means nothing. So never mess with your partner’s feelings just because you’re unsure of your own. If you are unsure in any way, be sure to say so. Always be open and honest. And remember that when the truth is replaced by silence, silence becomes a lie too.

9. They review and discuss their goals and dreams often

For couples, it’s you two against the world. Having regular discussions with each other about goals, dreams, passions and the future, in a way that’s positive and inspiring, will not only bring you closer together, but will also bring your collective desires closer to reality.

10. They negotiate and compromise on decisions

Since people’s needs change over time, and life itself demands changes too, the inner workings of good relationships are negotiated all the time. And oftentimes a two-way compromise is the best solution. There has to be a balance of give and take.

11. They don’t blow things out of proportion.

People make mistakes. Things happen. There’s no reason to break your relationship into pieces over spilt milk. One way to check if something is worth fighting over is to ask yourself this question: “Will this matter next year?” If not, then let it go immediately and leave it in the past.

12. They Control their anger

Heated arguments are a waste. They drain you mentally, emotionally and physically. Your partner doesn’t have to be wrong for you to be right. Most of the time it just doesn’t matter that much. When you feel anger boiling inside and you want to yell that rude remark on the tip of your tongue, just close your mouth and walk away. Don’t let your anger get the best of you. Give yourself some time to calm down and then calmly discuss the situation.

13. They apologize to each other immediately and forgive whole heartedly 

This takes practice but let me tell you from experience, my husband and I always apologize immediately. Sometimes we both realize how petty we sound and we both start apologizing. Making up after an argument is key to every happy relationship. A simple, honest “I’m sorry” is usually the most important step. We all make mistakes, but our willingness to admit it doesn’t always come naturally. So remember, it doesn’t really matter who’s right, it’s what’s right that matters. If your relationship is important to you, an apology is always right. Apologies must be backed by sincere patience and forgiveness. Because no matter how honest and kind you try to be, you will occasionally step on your partner’s toes. And this is why patience and forgiveness are so important to relationships.

14. They do sweet nothings for each other

We’ve all heard the term “sweet nothings” at some point in our lives. Happy couples will stop and pick up some flowers or their partners favorite ice cream bar to surprise them with here and there. As simple as it sounds, these sweet nothings show your partner that you care and pay attention to the details of the relationship. Sweet nothings can even be as simple as flirting with each other, or telling them that they look beautiful or handsome today. All those little things keep a relationship alive and thriving.

In conclusion I’m not suggesting that these are the only factors to being a happy couple, I’m simply stating some common habits that can make all the difference in the world. Most of the happiness in our relationships is due to intentional decisions. Meaning, it’s possible for us to significantly improve our relationships simply by altering what we choose to do every day. Happy couples are always looking for ways to show their partners that they care and are truly invested in the relationship.

3 Simple Morning Affirmations to Reach Your Goals

Affirmations can play a very important role in helping you achieve your goals. Here are a few to get you started on this Thursday Morning.

I am fully committed to achieving my goals.

I find when I’m going through goals with clients, there is a big commitment issue, it will turn out to be something that the person thinks other people expect from them but the goal is not very important to them. Make sure you are setting goals for yourself and no one else otherwise you will not bring the goals to fruition.

I can achieve all of my goals.

This is a simple but yet incredibly powerful affirmation.  You want to achieve your goals and this is what this affirmation is focused on. You can do anything you set your mind to, so yes you can achieve all of your goals.

I set goals that are really important to me.

Again make sure you are setting goals for yourself. If you set yourself a bunch of goals and the majority of them are not that important to you, your mind will get scrambled and you won’t know what to work on. Set clear goals that are really important to you and really focus on them.

How to Overcome a Challenge in 5 Minutes

Life loves to throw us challenges daily. Wether it be car issues, work issues, family drama, these unforeseen challenges can really ruin your day. But are theses challenges worth getting the best of you? Did you know that if you really focus and set your mind to it, you can calmly overcome 99% of your challenges in as little as 5 minutes?

Here’s how to overcome a daily challenge in 5 minutes or less!

1. Damage Assessment

Your first job is to determine how significant the unforeseen challenge really is by analyzing its place in your current situation as well as its degree of impact. I call this step a damage assessment. Your goal here is to understand the depth of the new circumstances which will direct your next step of action, help along your decision making and hopefully help you calm down when first confronted with it.

2. Emotional Response Check

No matter what the results of your damage assessment are, you’ll need to control your emotional response. If you want to come up with an effective, logical solution to the new challenge, you’ll need to remain in a steady, calm, neutral state. Negative self-talk can be a major issue. It’s easy to go down a rabbit hole by thoughts like, “This is bad,” or, “I can’t believe this happened,” but those are going to fuel panicked thinking and biased views on the situation. Instead, take deep breaths, focus only on the objective qualities of the challenge, and try to detach yourself from the problem. When you can detach for a moment it will help gain clarity of everything.

3. Ask Yourself if it Effects the Long-term

Remember all your long-term goals, and move away from the short-term thinking. This will help you prioritize your needs to address the given challenge and help you objectively distance yourself from the situation at hand. Don’t put all your focus into something that is a short-term problem. Is this challenge going to effect your long-term Goals? Is this something worth wasting time and energy that won’t even payoff? These are some questions you should be asking yourself.

4. Solution Time

Come up with two or three different courses of action, then select the one that offers the most advantages. When we have control of our emotional response to challenges we are able to think more clearly, thus in turn we can process solutions instead of making an impulsive decision. You will benefit every time you stay cool, calm and collected.

So there you have it! Unless the challenge is a life or death situation, the next time you are faced with an unforeseen challenge remember to take 5 before you react. Let yourself process through the situation at hand and stay away from impulsive decision making.

How Can A Life Coach Help You?

A life coach plays multiple roles in your life. He/She will help to unlock your potential, allow you to discover your best self, act as a motivator, and accountability partner. The effectiveness and dedication that the coach uses to transform your life quickly emphasizes the reality, which is that by getting coached you are investing in yourself.

A life coach is responsible for engaging you in powerful coaching conversations and asking the right questions to enable the breakthroughs that will cause a shift in your life. Coaches are not authoritative and they are definitely not there to tell you what to do.

One of the best benefits of hiring a life coach is that they will work together with you so that you may create a decisive plan for yourself. This plan will allow you to eventually realize your goals.

Here are some ways that a Life Coach can help you:

  • Help you gain clarity on life.

  • Helps you find the purpose of your life.
  • Help you get your life more balanced.
  • Help you develop a different attitude.
  • Help you gain more confidence.

  • Ultimately achieve your best self!

A life coach works with you to create a plan of action to make things happen in your life so that you gain full control of your life events. As a result, all the events that happen in your life become your accomplishments as you start taking the accountability of your actions. Life coaches take the responsibility of your self-discovery and bring out the best possible you!
