“You vote with your time” is one of Kristen’s favorite sayings.

And she’s right.

The fastest way learn about someone is to understand what they DO, not what they SAY…

Which is a bizarre paradox… given so much of our life is what we speak about.

When we speak about what we don’t want, we tend to get it (have you noticed?)

When we speak about what we do want, we tend to get that instead.

So, what’s the connection?

Simple. What you say, and what you do create your day, your week, your month and your year.

Most people speak one way, and act another.

And they wonder why they are stuck.

Today, I want you to think about where you are saying one thing, and acting another.

Are you saying you want to increase your health, and eating sugary, fatty foods?

Are you saying for more love in your life, and treating others with disrespect or a lack of kindness?

Are you saying you want to make more money, but spending the money you have irresponsibility?

It’s time to start voting with our time AND our words.

It’s time to get both our speaking and our actions sync’d up.

Do that, and everything gets easier.

In the end, it’s YOUR LIFE. You get to create it however you want.

(You are 100% in charge, remember?)

I’ve discovered that when I focus on getting my words and my actions lined up, everything seems to work better.

And the same is true for you.

Shoot me an email and let me know what you are going to start voting for with your time, and voting for with your words.

Have a great weekend!

Over the weekend, Kristen and I were talking about the slump she’s been in.

In March and the beginning of April, life’s events dominated her time, and took her attention away from a couple of big projects that she’s really excited about.

As a result it’s the end of April and she’s not feeling 100%, not inspired, not motivated.

Which really bums her out – continuing her slump!

So, we came up with a plan to start the week off right, and I want to share it with you.

#1 Focus on Mindset
To get your head in the game, remember…
What you speak about either moves your forward or keeps you stuck. Today, focus on only speaking the future that you want.
Celebrate the crap (I talked about this a couple of days ago). Look for the good in the “bad” and use it as inspiration to move forward.
Get into gratitude for what you have. Gratitude is a very powerful way to attract more of what you want, fast.

#2 Be intentional about taking action
To ensure you are taking action on the important things…
Write down 3 things you want to accomplish this week.
Block time in your schedule to take at least 1 action on each item.
Complete the task, and acknowledge yourself. The more you acknowledge when you are in action, the more action you take (this is a trick high performers use).

Alright. It’s Monday.

Time to get your head in the game, and start taking action on the things that matter to you.

To get started, reply to this email and tell me 3 things you are grateful for, and 3 things you want to accomplish this week.

Let’s do this!

Two days ago I got piece of news that by any measure could be classified as “bad news.”

For moment I wanted to wallow in it… Stick my head in the sand… Cancel all my coaching calls… and call it a day.

Luckily, I’ve trained myself in one simple concept: Celebrate the crap.

What I mean is breakdowns are the beginning of breakthroughs.

So, the more epic the breakdown, more epic the breakthrough.

That’s why you want to celebrate the crap, too.

It serves a purpose… It represents the degree of the potential good things coming your way.

So, today, what crap can you celebrate?

What bad thing in your life is actually a catalyst for something really good?

Hit reply and let me know what crappy thing you are leveraging into something really good.

I am 100% in charge” – Marcus Lemonis, The Profit

Have you ever watched this show?

Marcus says “I am 100% in charge” every time he invests in a business, even if he’s a minor owner. He comes in and takes charge.

Truth is, you are in 100% in charge of you.

Unfortunately, most people don’t realize this.

Your mood, your results, your reactions, your income, your wealth. You. 100%.

Stop letting The Drunk Monkey convince you that you are at the effect of the outside world.

You are the creator of your experience. That means you are 100% in charge of you.

Do you get how cool that is?

So, here’s my question; What you going to do today to be 100% in charge of the life you are living?
