As 2014 approaches, here are 14 habits you may consider letting go of …

HabitSome habits you may have to say goodbye to as the new year approaches:

1. A lack of curiosity about life, people, things, places, events. You have to be interested to be interesting. You have a pulse, use it!

2. Complaining, blaming and justifying everything and everyone. Begin to take personal responsibility and focus on the results you want. Stop believing the fallacy that it can not be done and instead ask yourself: ‘how do I get it done?’

3. Lack of F.U.N and laughter in your life. You have challenges, we get it. So does everyone else on the planet. Why not have fun along the way as you try to figure out this maze called life? Who benefits from a colourless, drab, and sad life?

4. Lack of adequate sleep and rest. You can attempt to play games with Mother nature but expect to lose, period!

bad habits5. Eating to feed your pain rather than to nourish your body. There’s a huge difference between the two.

6. Not asking for help and trying to do and control everything yourself. You are not indispensable. Stop playing God. You are definitely not God, (come to think of it, even God has angels as helpers) and he uses mere mortals in his co-creative job.

7. INGRATITUDE! Be thankful for everything and everyone. Nothing is too insignificant. It all matters.

8. Living on auto-pilot without pause for personal silence and reflection. Your life-train will crash if it does not stop and undergo periodic maintenance!

Replace9. Saying yes to just about everything out of fear, insecurity or a need to control others. Say yes or no from a place of power.

10. Lying to yourself. This is the worst lie you can ever tell. Sometimes, you may have to lie to others out of love or protection. Do NOT EVER LIE TO YOURSELF because you still get to live with yourself. Stop such needless torture!

11. Stop criticizing your body. Love it, accept it, celebrate it. It’s all you’ve got. To get a brand new one, you basically have to die, okay? For now, this present body is your only home, so treat it with respect, clean it up and enjoy it. (Unless, of  course, you’ve mastered the art of magically transporting yourself to a different body! 🙂 )

13. Are you still telling ‘woe me’ stories over and over again? Everyone is dealing with their own crap, don’t add to the crap mountain! 2014 is a good time to stop this habit.

past callsStill take time to feel all your feelings and vent when warranted, but do not become a permanent venting machine. That sh*t gets old really fast. Learn from your past, even take short visits there. However, do not take up permanent residency in the past! Tell ‘WOW ME’ stories, they’re more fun for you and everyone around you. Trust me!

14. Stop sitting on the fence. You will hurt yourself. There’s no life in the ‘grey zone’, make a choice, any choice and course-correct as you go along.

Life is not meant to be perfect. It is meant to be lived. Go out and live, now! 2014 awaits.

UnlearnLet go of the unhealthy habits, (especially if they no longer add value or serve your purpose), and replace them with healthier and cooler ones.

Learning is a continuos journey, take it one small step at a time. If you can learn, you can always unlearn. It’s a choice. DECIDE now.

Rules for Being Human-Keys To Self Growth

Are you a Human Being? Then, these rules apply to you too. Enjoy!

YOU University Online

Rules for Being Human

keysThese rules are consistent to everyone. It doesn’t matter where you are or where you are from these rules apply to your life. If you can embrace them, your self growth will truly show itself.

1.  You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period this time around.

2.  You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time, informal school called Life. Each day in this school, you will have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may like the lessons or think them stupid and irrelevant.

3.  There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial and error, experimentation. The “failed” experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiment that ultimately “works.”

4.  A lesson is repeated until learned. A lesson will be presented to you…

real decisionDid you know that by January 15th, more than 68% of all New Year Resolutions in 2013 were already broken? (Source: BusinessNews Daily).

Do you struggle with keeping your resolutions or goals? Do you feel stuck in particular area(s) of your life? Do you see yourself repeating the same unhealthy patterns in life, work and/or business?

Do you hear your inner voice whispering that you can BE and DO so much more in life? Are you inspired but do not know how to channel or monetize your passion? Are you ready to do something radically different in order to get different results?

Then, simply decide now to take ACTION and join us for a powerful and transformational Quantum Goal-Setting Session. This is beyond making SMART goals. Come and let’s share and learn top proven tools and strategies, developed in the Human Potential Industry, used successfully by top leaders, artists, change-agents…., all around the world!

Join us on January 30th for an experiential learning session on the following:

1. Discover the 3 main reasons why new year resolutions fail (It’s not your fault, it’s all biology!)

2. Understand the relationship between your limiting beliefs and your (in)ability to achieve your goals;

3. Uncover the unconscious survival programs you are running that prevent you from achieving your goals;

4. Learn why ‘SELF-WILL’ is not enough and the 3 proven strategies REQUIRED for any goal to manifest;

5. Gain mastery of your past, present and future time-lines and the proven process to reverse-engineer your goals;

……And so much more.

Here’s a fun social, behavioural and neuro-science tidbit:

All learning, change, behaviour are UN-conscious. Your conscious mind is the ‘goal-setter’ while your unconscious mind is the ‘go-getter’! In order to achieve your goals and have meaningful/ sustainable change, you need to have ALL the different PARTS of you on board.

actionLet’s pattern-interrupt your old habits and get you off to a wonderful start in 2014. Remember, until you lead and transform yourself, it is futile to attempt to lead others.

And you are either COMMITTED about your personal growth or you are serious about pretending to change and grow. Either choice takes commitment; it’s your call. Take ACTION today and transform your world!

See you on Thursday, January 30th at 10 am at the Richmond Hill Country Club. (RSVP by January 15th). This is our first seminar for the year and it’s complimentary. (Valued at $497!)
