You could be the greatest athlete alive,
Or the most famous model in history
(ehem…Tom & Gisele) and still not
Be happy with where you are.
Infidelity stories aside, these two are
Considered to be one of the most famous
Non royal couple in history.
Yet if you ask either of them if they’re
Happy with where they are, secretly they’d
Probably said no…
I mean honestly, it’s probably what drives
Them both to be as successful as they are today.
Think about it, you have to have some levels
Of dissatisfaction with where you are to have
The motivation to move forward.
But where does this motivation come from?
I mean if you had it all along, you’d probably
Be a billionaire with rock hard abs and
Your own island in the middle of the Pacific
That you get to by your own hand made boat.
Maybe…But what our brain says and what we do
Are two different things…
So why the disconnect?
Today, I’d like us to discover how motivation is
Helping you get (or not get) what you want in life.
I’m sure you’ve had those flashes of brilliant
So you want to lose a few pounds right?
It can be tough because there are so many things that
Make you feel so good that also make you gain weight.
But the thing is not to focus on what you don’t want
It’s to focus on what you do want.
You see, when we focus on what you don’t want
You are actually telling your brain that you do want that
Conceptually your mind can tell the difference between
“Yes” and “no,” but unfortunately, our 100,000 year old
Brains are not equipped to differentiate between feeling
Good and feeling happy (yes there’s a difference)
There is a ton of science on this and I hope that we can
Chat about this another time one on one or in my
Private Facebook group Project SELFFY, but for now
I’ll leave you with this:
What you believe whether good or bad, is what you
Can and will achieve with action. I’m not saying that
You’re a mindless zombie that can’t make decisions
On your own, but you kinda are.
Controlled by your emotions and mindset, the only
Thing we can really do is step outside of our normal
Way of thinking and be present to what we actually
Desire in our lives.
Be present to be what you want to be.

P.S. If you feel like your thoughts
Are holding you back they probably are.
I would like to invite you to change your mindset
By first realizing that you have absolute control over
How you think, feel, and act.

To do today or in life overall. I would love to read how
You are making a difference in the world. Talk soon…
