Kristen and I had lunch with a client yesterday.

She’s smart, successful and extremely spiritual.

She’s also been stuck.

Which is extremely frustrating for someone so powerful.

As a result, I was reminded of how high-conscious people get into a rut that keeps them repeating the same patterns and getting the same results.

So today, I want to share some of the pitfalls to avoid as a spiritual, connected, high-conscious, or tuned in being (or whatever you call it).

#1. If others would just be more loving, the world would be a better place.

This common perspective is extremely dangerous for one simple reason: Contained within it is a perspective about what “loving” and “better” really is. This belief is damaging because it subtly assumes YOU know what’s best for the world, when in fact, you don’t.

Instead, here’s what I would recommend: Seek to accept things as they are, and note that you have a preference. Your preference isn’t right or wrong. You just have an idea of how you want things to be. So do other people. The truth is you have the power to be happy, successful and prosperous no matter what is happening in the world.

#2. Now is the time for people to start healing.

Ah, no. Have you noticed that most people LIKE being angry, upset, mad, hurt, frustrated and a victim of their circumstances? As a high conscious person, the sooner you accept that people will seek healing (like I suspect you did) if they choose, not because they should. Healing is a choice. It’s not essential. Or important.

Your perspective that others should do what you’ve done to improve your life is arrogant. Let people be. Help if appropriate. And give up that healing is needed. That’s just what you would like to see happen.

Make sense?

These are the kinds of advanced personal development conversations and ideas you will find inside my P3 Academy.

If you are ready for some next-level training on your personal development journey, you owe it to yourself to check it out.

Have you ever heard yourself saying “Some day… when I have X… then I’ll be happy and satisfied.”

News Flash: There is no “some day,” and living for “some day” will kill your inspiration and your dreams.

That’s why I would like to share seven critical strategies designed to get you inspired and in action today!

Are you ready to have a life filled with anticipation, excitement, joy and outstanding results?

If you said yes, then let’s get started.

Get Inspired Strategy #1: Write a one-year prophecy letter.
It’s time to get out of the past, stop trying to fix yourself, stop fretting over what you are going to do to have more success and happiness. Stop looking at what didn’t work and start prophesying about your future. You become what you think about. Let’s get your mind focused on what you want and off what isn’t working. Write a letter as though you had achieved everything you wanted to achieve, dated one year from today.

Get Inspired Strategy #2: Count your blessings each day. This is essential for explosive growth. The universe is happy to provide for you, as long as you are happy about what you already have. If you are dissatisfied with your current situation, that energy muddles up your intentions. The more dissatisfied you are, the more you receive that which dissatisfies you. Make a list of 10 things you love about your life.

Get Inspired Strategy #3: The 10-10 Visualization Exercise. Starting with your list of the 10 things you are grateful about today, create a second list of 10 things you want to experience or achieve. Take deep breaths and go into a state of relaxation. Now that you are in a very powerful, conscious state, mentally review your list of everything you are grateful for. Dwell on each item. Get really connected with how great it is to have this in your life. Let the emotions of gratitude well up inside of you and overflow. It’s okay to cry tears of joy. In fact, that’s the objective. Then do the same with your list of goals and dreams.

Get Inspired Strategy #4: Write your intentions every day. What do you want in your life? Get clear, ask, write your intentions.

Get Inspired Strategy #5: Get clarity about what you want. Know what you are seeking. The moment you get clear, the perfect people, situations and opportunities appear.

Get Inspired Strategy #6: If you feel stuck. Make a list of 3-5 aspects of your life that are working. Spend time thinking about those aspects of your life. What you focus on expands and that will inspire you.

Get Inspired Strategy #7: When you don’t know what to do to get the energy moving in your life, play The Perfect Game: Whatever is offered, take it. Whatever is suggested, do it. Whatever happens, declare it perfect. Allow the universe to guide you to the perfect situations that will inspire you to take new action and accomplish more.

People are liars.

Why do I say that?

Simple.

In general, people will NOT tell you what they really think.

Let me give you an example.

One of my sons tends to be negative by nature.

His default style of communication implies things are bad or wrong.

It’s so ingrained in him that he naturally starts many of his sentences with “The problem is…” or “No, it’s…”

Even the most benign issues are subject to his criticism and judgement.

Which is fine except Kristen and I find ourselves reacting his negativity all the time.

For example. Kristen will say “Hey let’s take the boys out to dinner someplace special” and I reply “He won’t like where we want to go, and I don’t want to hear him complain, so let’s just stay home.”

This happens at our house all the time.

We want to go to the movies, to the store or out on an adventure but we stop ourselves because we don’t want to create a situation for this kid to bitch.

Now, if you are parent, you are asking yourself “aren’t you giving this kid a lot of power?”

Well, yes, and no.

In the end, we do everything we want… just not with him… and often without his brothers.

If I am being honest, it’s a bummer for our whole family.

It breaks down like this:

A. We don’t want to set up a situation where he is a no, and then have to deal with his resistance to what we suggest (a restaurant, for example).

B. We don’t want to set up a situation where he gets to dictate what the family does, and further reinforce that his instant “no” is OK and should be accommodated.

So, everyone loses.

AND THAT BRINGS ME TO MY POINT.

Where are you an instant no in your life?

Where do you naturally say things like “oh, I can’t” or “it shouldn’t be that way.” or “I don’t like that”?

Where are you subjecting others to your criticism and judgement without thinking?

Let me tell you a monster secret: Even positive people have negative tendencies that others don’t really like.

Of course, people will listen to you.

They will pretend to care.

They may even act like they agree with you.

But in the end, when you are even a little negative, people will naturally avoid situations that evoke your negativity.

So, you miss out on all kinds of things.

How do you know?

When was the last time someone called you up and said, “Hey, I’ve got some time, what do you feel like complaining about today? I am all ours.”

Look people will never say “you know what, I am so happy you don’t like what I’ve suggested. Thanks for cutting my idea down.”

And, I promise no one has told you “I love it when I make a offer a solution, and you tell me all the reasons that it won’t work. Awesome. I love that part of you.”

Look, you are training the people around you.

They know if you are generally a yes or a no. They know what you like to criticize and judge.

They know if they should risk telling you something that you will bitch about.

And they are lying to you… because they aren’t being honest that they are holding back, and not including you in opportunities, or events, or in business dealings because they know that you love to voice your objections.

Look, I want you to achieve your biggest goals.

Today, I am inviting you to look around your life, and see where things are stuck.

Where are you unhappy? Where do you wish things were a little different?

When you have the courage to do that, then you will have the courage to notice were you are the one being negative, being a no, or relating to that thing like it’s a problem.

Once you see it, you can do something about it.

So, here’s my request. For the next 24 hours count how many times you are a “no”… just count. And then send me an email.

Let’s do this.
