A message from Benjamin

A message from Benjamin

It’s when I receive messages like this that my heart is truly filled with gratitude, so much so that I have to pinch myself because I can hardly believe it’s me who gets to do this work.

I received this message ( https://drive.google.com/file/d/1__ZZox--40jTKjIBkulx_S5l5AI76D1F/view) a few weeks ago from Benjamin, one of the members in my Results Mastermind Group. I got his permission to share a clip of the message with you because the truth is, this really does work.

In our group, we’ve been looking at the process of visualization, how your thoughts create your reality, and the power of focusing on what it is that you want versus worrying about what you don’t want to happen.

And when you start understanding these things, you’re able to apply them to your life, and you come to find that all of this really does work.

I would encourage you to listen to this short message. It’s only about a minute long.

And just be encouraged that wherever you are in your life, you can start today. Even if up until now you’re not satisfied with the results you’ve gotten in your life.

The truth is, we all have the opportunity (at any given moment) to change course— to make a decision to start fresh and to go in a new direction.

Benjamin made that decision, and he’s been very purposeful and intent on following through on that decision. And it has paid off. Just look at this picture of the beautiful home he and his family now live in.

Truly, they are so grateful. And I am celebrating with them.

So, trust the process and know that this doesn’t just work for some people— it works for everyone. In fact, it’s working for you right now, whether you realize it or not.

You’re manifesting your life right here and now as you read this email.

But let me ask you this: are you manifesting what you want or what you don’t want?

So, let me encourage you to lean in and to truly trust the process.

It works and it works every single time it’s tried.

Again, I just feel overwhelmed with gratitude that I get to be connected with people like Benjamin, and people like yourself who are committed to growing and expanding their lives so they can have a greater impact on the world.

That’s what this world needs more than anything.

The viruses of our programming

The viruses of our programming

From the time we are very young, each of us is programmed with beliefs about our worth, our potential, and our identity. These beliefs form our self-image.

Our self-image is simply the image we hold of ourselves. If we view ourselves highly and in a healthy manner, we’re more likely to believe we are capable of being, doing, and having more in our lives.

And consequently, those beliefs translate into our actions. And our results.

In other words, people who have a healthy self-image end up being, doing, and having more in their lives.

On the other hand, if we have a low view of ourselves, we might think of ourselves as simply victims of our circumstances.

…And this is where it gets dangerous. I know from personal experience that what this does is hinder us from reaching our full potential. I know it was something that stopped me from being, doing, and having all that God had created me to.

Because the truth is, I had specific viruses in my programming. I was believing lies that didn’t serve me or my future. Does this sound familiar to you?

…But my journey didn’t end there. I reached a point where I had enough. I made a choice to start believing in my fully resourced self.

And here's the good news: you can too! There are ways we can renew our minds and reprogram our beliefs so we can have a healthier and more positive self-image and live a life of abundance. Because as I shared in a previous email, the #1 factor that determines our success is our self-image.

Everything I’m sharing with you in this email was discussed more in-depth last Saturday in my teaching within the Fully Resourced series. You can access it by clicking here.

…And I’m excited to share that I’ll be taking an even deeper dive into this topic this coming Saturday at 9:30am (ET) on the Empowered Living platform.

I look forward to having you join me in my next episode as we go through the Fully Resourced teaching series. I’m looking forward to helping you discover the truth of how you are fully resourced.

One reminder we all need

One reminder we all need

Do you know what’s a challenging thought for the vast majority of people to wrap their head around?

…The truth that nothing new needs to be added to you. You are complete, whole, and fully resourced as you are. You’re not lacking or deficient. In fact, you’re connected to the source of all things, to G-O-D—The Grand-Overall-Designer. And you have been created in the image of God, who only creates two ways: perfectly and abundantly.

That might be a lot for you to take in, so if you need to pause and re-read what I just wrote, please do so.

And maybe even just stop right here and take 5, 10, or even 30 minutes right now, to just think on that— to reflect on the truth of who you are and whose you are.

It took me a long time—more than half my life— to come to grips with this truth about myself. And to be honest, it’s still something I need to revisit and remind myself on a regular basis.

And I think that’s how it is for each of us, no matter how far we’ve come or how much success we’ve created in our lives.

What’s really helped me is having just a handful of key people in my life speak truth to me, reminding me of my abilities, my potential, and that I am fully resourced here and now, just the way I am.

Do you have someone like that speaking truth into your life?

This Saturday, I’m continuing a teaching that I started last week. It’s based on a mentoring program I put together called Fully Resourced.

If you need an injection of truth in your life, or maybe just some encouragement and a reminder of your full potential, join me this Saturday, May 22nd, at 9:30am (ET) on Facebook LIVE. And allow me to speak into your life.

Here’s what I can say… and this is the rule of thumb I’ve used for any mentor in my life.

I will listen to someone and do what they tell me to do if they have the results I’m looking to create in my own life. And I’ll do what they tell me to do unless I learn that they’re either lying to me, or are crazy.

And I can tell you, this rule of thumb has served me well. It has given me the space I need to activate my faith and step forward and take action, even when I couldn’t see how that action step would move me closer to what it is that I wanted in my life.

I trusted my mentor and my guide, and sure enough, each person who has maintained that role of integrity in my life has helped me move forward in tremendous ways.

So again, let me invite you to join me on Saturday, May 22nd, at 9:30am (ET) on Facebook LIVE, right here.
