Are You Living the Life You TRULY Want?

Have you ever wondered why so many people settle for a life they don’t want?

“It’s unrealistic” is one of the main reasons I’ve discovered people are not willing to even consider the life they TRULY want.

Unfortunately, such beliefs are so powerful they cause us to miss out on the greater life we could have had.

Fortunately, if you sincerely analyse this belief, it falls to pieces.

“I am realistic. I expect miracles.” ~~ Dr Wayne Dyer

Consider Will Smith’s healthy attitude to life. He goes beyond traditional thinking and therefore goes for and achieves big dreams. Here are excerpts from his inspiring interviews.

  • “Being realistic is the most commonly travelled road to mediocrity.”

Drop Diplomacy and Choose Freedom (Part 2)

flowers-painting-1391872491b4fWe use diplomacy as a SURVIVAL technique.
If we’re in survival mode we’re not free.

This is about being able to live in truth, YOUR truth!

(Click here for Part 1)

“Your experience is unique, as is your truth. Everyone’s version of the truth is different, because everyone’s knowledge and experience is different.”
~~ How to Get Anything You Want – Just Like That! (P. 29)
(click here to get the first 3 chapters free)

Today we’re talking about all those excuses and explanations we use when the truth feels too uncomfortable.

Let’s imagine a simple scenario –
you’re late for an appointment or need to change one.

Would your first impulse be to put forward an excuse or explanation?

There’s a subtlety here that sneaks by unnoticed and it’s to do with your real belief about your power.

If you’re offering excuses and explanations it means you’re being pushed around by people or circumstances; you’re not free.

It means something out of your control happened TO YOU and you couldn’t help it.

Let’s always remember YOU ARE POWERFUL…
what you THINK.

This applies to everyone.

You and the other person involved are BOTH creating… not just “now and then”… in ALL circumstances.

Most of us are intending to do the right thing, so none of this is malicious, but let’s all take responsibility for what happens —
You created being late.
They created you being late.

Let’s acknowledge that.
Let’s embrace that.
Let’s stop giving your power away.

As mentioned in part 1, this is not about being insensitive, arrogant, hurting anyone’s feelings or assigning blame; we can be gentle while speaking our truth.

This is about LOVE and about recognizing we cannot make other people happy.

The best thing you can do for another person is love yourself and live your own truth.

That way you lead the way for others to do the same.
If you don’t, everyone continues around in circles unsuccessfully trying to make others happy.

Scratch the surface of an excuse and you’ll find… fear.

Are you concerned the truth will make you look unreliable, disorganized, irresponsible or uncaring?

Consider this…

A genuinely confident, self-sufficient person who loves themselves has none of the above concerns and has no need to explain themselves.

Let’s dive deeper.

What about the issue of hurting someone’s feelings.
If that’s your concern you haven’t yet fully grasped your power and that of others.

“Nobody can hurt me without my permission.”
~~ Mahatma Ghandi

By feeling the need to manage another person’s feelings you believe they rely on you to feel good. Wouldn’t that mean you’re also depending on others making you feel good?

Do you see how this works?

Would you be okay with knowing others had to handle you with diplomacy to keep you happy — and in the process couldn’t tell you the truth ?

What if you could love yourself so much you can hear and handle the truth, no matter what?

I’m not saying that’s easy but what a powerful way to live!
That’s FREEDOM and if you want it you can have it.

Be the example and others will follow.

It’s a powerful moment when you really “get” that:

  • you do not have to play the game of keeping others happy
  • you do not depend on others for your happiness
  • others do not depend on you
  • you’re big and bold… YOU’RE FREE!

If you want to be FREE, what can you do?

1. Start by observing people making excuses or explaining themselves.
Not to judge, merely to learn.

2. Play with speaking your truth or saying what you want without excuses and explanations. It will seem strange at first.

I know personally how confronting it can be to speak and live your truth…
      … but what happens if you don’t?

You’ll see, if the people in your life don’t value the truth like you do, you’ll start shifting into new circumstances and people who do!

You’ll start enjoying love and FREEDOM beyond your wildest imagination.

This has been my experience.

Drop Diplomacy and Choose Freedom (Part 1)

Even though we celebrate January 1st as the start of a new year, every day is the start of another year.

What if we lived every day of our year in absolute TRUTH?

You see, a person who is “diplomatic”

Do ever feel the need to be diplomatic?
If so, are you stunting your spiritual growth and freedom?

FREEDOM begins with TRUTH.

“The high-minded man must care more for the truth
than for what people think.”
~~ Aristotle

Today I’m delving into the nuances of FREEDOM because while we may be born free, most people do not live in freedom.

We may consider ourselves honest in our dealings with others, the fact is we tend to avoid the TRUTH or soften it with diplomacy.

Note: Your TRUTH is always unique to you (see free 3 chapters of my book page 29)

If you can’t speak your truth, you’re not free.

This is a contentious issue and this article may need some contemplation.

This isn’t about right and wrong, merely allow these ideas to linger as a maybe.

Stay with me if you can.

Why do we avoid the TRUTH?

Because the truth, by itself, can seem cold and harsh.

Could it be diplomacy is just a socially acceptable way of hiding the truth?

Many societies glorify diplomacy. There was a time when our survival depended on our “diplomatic abilities” because being out of favour meant dire consequences such as being cast out of the tribe.

Rocking the boat was just too dangerous. In some societies this is still the case and if that’s your situation I suggest you proceed with caution.

This is no longer the case for many of us but the desire to fit in and be liked is recorded in our soul, it remains in our DNA and continues to push us around.

If fear of disapproval is a big one for you but you’d like to evolve beyond this planet, then it’s important you learn to master it.

Allow me to add this is not about assigning blame or being deliberately insensitive and arrogant; it is possible to be gentle while speaking the truth.

Our aim is to always treat others with love and respect, and never intentionally hurt people’s feelings.

We want to come from a place of LOVE and believe it or not this topic is all about LOVE. Loving yourself first and allowing that love to spill over to others.

LOVE and TRUTH are inextricably combined.

One can’t generalize of course, so there will be situations warranting a discussion, the key here is we generally explain ourselves way too much.

It’s time to live and speak your truth without fear of retribution.

If you believe you’ll be rejected or “cast out” for saying what you believe, then that’s your truth and you’ll live it.

If you believe you’re entitled to freedom then that’s your truth and you’ll be free.

As I often say, if we’re not speaking the truth then it surely must be a lie.

I, too, sometimes catch myself with the temptation to soften the truth. I insist on catching and correcting it because I so strongly believe we’re born free and ought to live free.

It starts with courage.

Do you have the courage to speak the truth so you can be FREE?

When you have the courage to liberate yourself through truth, you’re also giving others that gift.

Choose to step forward and lead the way.

What Do You Need Before You Can Love Someone?

all-you-need-is-loveIt makes sense that you can’t give what you don’t already have, so really this applies to EVERYTHING in life.

Never WAIT for what you want.

Be the originator of everything you desire.

You’re a natural-born powerful creator so………. go for it!

If you’d like to have more LOVE in your life, then it’s time to start filling up with love.
How do you do that?
By being loving with YOU.

“To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance.”
~~ Oscar Wilde

Unless you’re filling up with love for yourself, you can’t give love or share love unconditionally.
Until that time we love others conditionally, which means we expect something in return.

When you can love unconditionally you expect nothing,

Why… You’re Worth It!


Do you compare yourself to others?

Do you feel you’re not good enough, that no matter how hard you try you never quite measure up?

That’s you? Well, thank goodness for that!

You’re not perfect.

I’ve realized I wouldn’t want perfection because what then, would be the purpose of life?

There’s no-one quite like you and fortunately there never will be…

…so how could you EVER compare yourself to anyone else?

BUT the beautiful little secret is…
…you can always become BETTER!

All humans naturally seek expansion and greater freedom. The adventure of life TRULY BEGINS when you allow yourself that.

“We are all living in cages with the doors wide open.” ~~ George Lucas

Remember your FREE WILL?

This means you can “BE” whoever you want to be.

Free will means there’s never any judgement. Imagine what you’d achieve if you never judged yourself!

This means you don’t have to WAIT until you’re perfect before becoming better (and oh boy does the human race love a good reason to “wait”).

Choose to move forward NOW.

Tell yourself, “I am worth it and I’m becoming an even BETTER version of ME!”

Let’s look at nature

If nature’s not evolving what’s it doing? You got it, it’s dying.

And that’s the same with us.

What’s another word for evolving?


Unless you’re creating, you’re disintegrating. You’re a natural-born creator who right now isn’t even close to your true potential.

You’re more powerful and magnificent than you can imagine

I love that I am not even close to perfection because it’s been such a blast evolving this far. Believe me, I wasn’t born loving myself!!!

I’m so grateful to have discovered the truth about life because now I’m loving the adventure and living my dream. The pace picks up each day and the opportunities continue to grow.

It’s awesome! Please allow yourself to join me!!!

Did you know DISSATISFACTION is in fact a powerful, creative state?

Agreed, always be grateful for what you have and who you are, but always strive to be even BETTER.

You’re starting to see a theme here I can tell : )

Have you noticed how the things you PROCRASTINATE about are those exact things that would directly benefit and enrich you?

Why the hesitancy? Because you don’t think you’re good enough or worthy of having something wonderful.

If you’re still making sure everyone else is happy before you say YES…

… if you aren’t doing what’s right for you first and foremost, then you haven’t yet understood the reasons for loving yourself first.

Why did I ensure the first chapter in my book was about loving yourself?

Because everything stems from whether you think you’re worth the investment or not.

Once you’re willing to see you’re NOT SELFISH by loving yourself first, you’ll more easily start taking action on your dreams.

“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”  ~~ E.E. Cummings


You’ll stay younger and find things such as radiant health and being your ideal weight becoming a natural by-product.

Place the following sentence on your mirror and say it to yourself every day:

Say, “Listen here __(your name)__… you are precious, special and amazing… and I LOVE you.”

You’ll probably feel silly.

As ridiculous as it sounds it does take a little courage. Some people said they started crying when they said it.

I know you’re precious and I know you’re worth it!
