Word’s of wisdom from someone with a great deal of clarity about life.
Take note of what the quote says. Sometimes we get what we wish for and it’s actually something we would rather not have.
This really goes back to “what we focus on expands.” Remember to check your thinking to make sure it’s positive. Everything is about energy so if you want to attract prosperity and abundance it’s important to put positive energy out into the Universe.

Nothing is perfect in life and the more you attempt to make it so, the less perfect it usually becomes.
If you’re in business and you write articles, create products or want to write a book and think that unless it’s perfect you can’t do it, please put that thinking on the shelf.
If I had waited until I thought my book “The Astonishing Power of You” was absolutely perfect which is why I dithered about it for so long, I would never have published it and it would never have been on Amazon’s best seller list. God never meant for us to be or do things perfectly, just to be authentic and to get it done.
If there’s something you want to do, just do it. Better not to be perfect than to have regrets that you didn’t get it done.

Knowing this clearly is very important to your standing and values in life.
Do you have clearly defined boundaries?
Do you come from a place of integrity? If you say you’re going to be somewhere or do something do you follow through?
Are you taking care of yourself or do you say yes to everyone else even when you want to say no?
Do you take responsibility when something happens that could have been avoided or do you throw it back on the other person and get defensive?
Are you acting instead of re-acting to life in general?
If you can honestly, without fudging say yes to all of the above then you and your values are in a great place. If you say no to any of them you probably still have some work to do and you need to become more consciously aware of your behavior so you have a way to create new habits.
There are no rights or wrongs yet we can live life differently if we pay attention to those things that are not working for us and make little changes.

Happy New Year everyone!
My apologies for not writing for the past few weeks! The holidays got crazy, I had visitors from the UK and then I got sick. What can I say other than life sometimes gets in the way.
Then to top it off I found out I was the victim of bank fraud and someone had managed to forge checks and my signature and steal $6,000 from one of my bank accounts. It’s not even about the money because the bank puts it back however it is scary to think it’s that simple! Over a period of 24 hours they went to an out of area branch and cashed six separate checks amounting to nearly $6,000.
I found out quite by accident. A bill I had paid didn’t go through and the bank wrote and told me there wasn’t enough money in the account. I went online and checked and lo and behold there it was, or rather there it wasn’t. I usually check my accounts online at least twice weekly however with the holidays, guests and getting sick I didn’t. I learned a huge lesson and found out from the bank that every bank has this challenge 2-3 times a day.
Whether in business or personally please keep a close watch on your bank accounts. Apparently it’s easier than we might think!
I also learned that online bill pay according to my bank is less safe than paying bills by check!
Anyway I just wanted to share this with you in the hope that you will check your accounts regularly so that this doesn’t happen to you.
‘Til Next Time
Joy and Blessings

Things are certainly changing in the world. The US is having a recession and from what I hear things are not so great in the rest of the world either. However, having said that, this is not a time to buy into fear which is what the media would have you do!
Just because things are different doesn’t necessarily mean they are worse. Some of the worst economic times have created the most financial business success for people.
The most important thing is not to give up or give in. Don’t listen to the news constantly especially last thing before you go to bed. This will only cause stress. Remember to think as positively as possible. Read, listen to and watch positive joyful things. Check out my good friend Alexandra Watsons blog for a dose of happiness thinking. She’s the UK’s leading Happiness expert and each week shares some of her highly successful information at http://happyhelp.politicsandthecity.com Now is a great time to discover her significant secrets.
Remember you can achieve whatever you want in this life whether we’re in a recession or not. It’s just about believing in yourself and keep moving forward.
If you really want to get on track take a look at my brand new business telephone boot camp starting in January and check out the Early Bird Prices at www.sayyestoyoucoaching.com/bootcamp.html. You will receive personalized coaching with me and a very limited number of entrepreneurs. If you’re really ready to go to the next level and want 2009 to be your most successful year ever check it out Now. www.sayyestoyoucoaching.com/bootcamp.html
The most important thing to remember is not to buy into fear. Just because there’s a recession doesn’t mean you have to take part. I don’t choose to, you can do this too?

My grandson turned 7 this past weekend and as I watched him play basketball with his friend it was very clear that he definitely knew what it was he wanted. He wanted to score goals and that’s what he focused on doing as they ran around throwing the ball from one to the other. They didn’t think about what they didn’t want only about what they did want.
As you come into 2009 don’t focus on what you don’t want, become really clear about what it is you do want! In order to attract and manifest what you want it’s very important to know what it is. Don’t just think you know which is what a lot of people do, be really sure. Write down how you would like your ‘ideal’ life and business to look.
Create the picture in your mind, make an action plan, stay focused and keep moving forward with that picture in mind just as my grandson had the picture in his mind of shooting the ball into the goal and he scored more often than not because he knew what he was going for.
Always remember that although reaching the goal is important, it’s just as important to enjoy the journey. Don’t give up be persistent and persevere. Everything is about energy so keep your energy high. Have fun stay in the moment and know that it’s not about perfection it’s just about staying on the path and taking one step at a time.

It’s been a couple of weeks since I last posted and a lot has happened in the world since then that is creating a great deal of fear in people, especially here in the US.
Although there is definitely a recession I have chosen not to be part of it. Will it affect me yes, my retirement fund is losing money fast! Am I going to go through every day living fearfully, absolutely not!
I’m in touch with reality however, I decided I’m not buying into the frenzy that is going on.
You can either buy into the fear or let go! If you don’t have control over a situation what’s the point of spending each day being afraid of what might happen tomorrow, next week or next year. Suppose it never happens, you will have spent all that time being stressed for nothing. Catastrophic thinking not only plays with your mind, it also causes stress which is the internal response to an external event.
Take some action if you need to. Cut back if necessary. Clip coupons on and offline. Stop buying expensive Starbucks. Carpool. Do whatever you need to do, just don’t buy into fear. Check out sites like www.Thriftyfun.com, www.gasbuddy.com. You can find almost anything online these days including coupons for discounts.
Every time a fear comes up, acknowledge it and then replace it with something positive and move on. I know you might be saying easier said than done however, it really is easy to do and very simple.
Live your life fearlessly with power and don’t buy into anything you read or hear. Journalists and media have to have something to use as fodder and for now this is it. Not everything you read is true!
