Do you have a “heart of stone”?

I will give you a heart of flesh for your heart of stone

This particular quote from Ezekiel has great meaning for me. I used it when I made first vows as a Houston Dominican back in 1979.

It has been coming up again in various ways. This past weekend it came up as I was participating in a program called the Venus Sequence of Gene Keys. This program is about relationships.

I don’t know anyone who hasn’t shut their heart down at least a bit after being hurt in a relationship. You take a chance, I take a chance, in relationship and then get blasted. This could begin in childhood, teen years or as an adult.

What I was reflecting on, and what I want to share with you, are the ramifications of shutting down your heart. According to Ezekiel, this would be the process of turning our heart of flesh into stone.

I believe we were born with an open heart ready to love. I remember when Don, my brother-in-law, talked about meeting his daughter for the first time. She was minutes old and he was holding her as she was bathed in the warm water. I may have the exact story wrong, she now has 4 kids of her own ages 14-7, so it’s been a while. I remember Don saying their eyes locked for a good while. She was, of course, immediately locked into his heart. He was ready to love and she was ready to be loved.

When your heart has been hardened by the cares of the world, that willingness to love and be loved is tempered by the fear of the pain of being hurt again. The stone replaces the vulnerable flesh of the heart.

I was reflecting upon what happens when I’ve hardened my heart. I was rather surprised, and deeply moved, by what came up.

I’ve always thought of a stone heart as being solid. In my meditation, I didn’t see the stony heart as solid. I saw the stone wrapped around the fleshy heart and, well, killing it. The flesh then putrefied and crumbles. The stony heart was an empty heart.

A stony heart prevents love from entering into you, into me. (I so want me in this discussion, and you as well.) The flesh of the heart needs love to survive. If I, you, surround our hearts with hardness for myself, yourself and for others, love from others and from God can’t gain entry. Love is deflected. We can’t absorb it because it can’t get through the cold stone of pain.

We have to be willing to take a heart of flesh

Transforming a heart of stone into a heart of flesh is a dynamic process consisting of awareness, openness, healing, and receiving.

Awareness

First be aware that you have closed yourself off to love. This is where I’ve been the last year or so. I thought I’d passed through this part, but am discovering I haven’t been fully aware. I’ve chiseled a small hole in that heart or stone so a little love is getting in, but I need to open my heart so much more.

As I’ve become aware of being closed off from allowing myself to be open to the love of others, and I’m not talking about romantic partners here, I keep myself separate from others. I laugh with them, give words of support and listen to their words, but I haven’t been truly accepting their laughter and words of support into my heart. I haven’t accepted the love and care behind those words.

Think about yourself, how much do you allow someone’s words of affirmation for you become part of you? Do you assume everyone has an agenda because there is no way someone would mean those words “for you?” If you say, “but everyone around me does have an agenda and doesn’t really mean what they say,” then it is time to risk and find new people. Find one, two, or three open and honest people.

Openness

Second, you must be willing to take the risk to be open to people who can love you. You’re not going to find a human being who can love you perfectly. No human can have unconditional love for you all the time. You can’t for others. Finding one or two who can accept you as you are, yet challenge you to be more, is a true gift. I have found those type of people in my Gene Keys Venus group as well as my “regular” Gene Keys group.

Find a group of people committed to growing and developing with honesty and commitment. There are a number of personal development groups you can investigate. Mine is spiritually focused. If spirituality isn’t your thing, look for others which will fit your needs. When you find a group, don’t sit back with a stony heart which closes you off from the risk and amazement of love. Take risks to share yourself with others. Be open to listening and to being listened to.

Healing 

This journey has moved me even deeper into asking for healing. I use Encodements and the Soul Healing Prayer most of the time. (You can learn more about Encodements by going here.  You can learn more about the Soul Healing Prayer by going here. ) Whatever is your favorite healing tool, use it. Really, don’t wait around. Use it every time you feel pain. If you don’t have a quick healing tool, check out Encodements and Soul Healing.

The more you heal, the more willing you are to take those risks to be open. The more you heal, the more you chip away at the heart of stone.

The happier you become. The freer you become. Peace becomes a part of your life, as well as laughter and joy.

Receiving 

The more you heal, the more open your heart is and the more you can receive. Receiving is a choice. It’s not something that just happens. You have to extend your hands outward to receive a gift. To receive love, you must open your heart. You must be willing to experience pain. No matter how close the relationship, there will be pain. That’s what happens when you put two imperfect people together. The clearer you both are, the less pain there will be. The less pain, the more the two of you can experience those moments of unconditional love.

Gradually, you chip through that heart of stone and the heart of flesh resurrects within you. The heart of flesh you were born with becomes, “re-hydrated” by the love which is now able to make it through the cracks of your crumbling heart of stone. Yes, the flesh is much more vulnerable than the stone; however, the flesh experiences Joy where the stony heart cannot.

Unleash Your Hidden Mental Strength

Unleash Your Hidden Mental Strength

 

We don’t need to be mentally or psychologically strong when life is running along smoothly. It’s when we hit those bumps in the road, and sometimes sinkholes, that our strength is tested. 

Advanced preparation will help you handle the difficulties that will present themselves. You can do almost anything if you set your mind to it.

Enhancing Your Mental Strength

Here are a few tips to increase your mental stamina and emotional strength. Know that mental strength manifests differently depending upon individual personalities, age, experience, and wisdom. There are strategies each of us can use.

Practice mindfulness. Mindfulness is simply about paying attention. When you are attentive to what is happening within and around you, you’ll be able to manage your feelings and thoughts. Notice the thoughts passing through your head.

Are they the ones you want? Do those thoughts support the life you want? Challenge your thoughts and destructive beliefs. Develop more efficient ways of coping with what’s going on in your life.

Be conscientious. Organize your life, take your responsibilities seriously, and follow through on your plans. Keep your commitments to others and to yourself.

Develop patience. Oh, this is a big one and can be difficult. In our society, we don’t want to wait for anything. Train yourself to breathe when you become impatient. There are going to be delays. Sometimes you won’t get what you want when you want it.

Patience gives you the ability to stay calm and choose your actions. By uniting patience with mindfulness, you’ll be able to remain focused on the type of person you want to be.

Discover Flexibility. How do you handle change? Some people are great. They bend and move with the flow of life. Others try to be that tree which won’t flex in the driving rain, then it topples over at the roots.

Being open to change allows you to adjust your thinking and adapt to new circumstances. There are wonderful rewards which come from flexibility. Often people and situations come your way when you go with the flow that you wouldn’t encounter staying mired in place. Take a chance and discover the rewards of being innovative and resilient.

Live life with Joy and Delight. Some people call this living authentically. Know what is most important to you. Make them a priority. Laugh well and often. Open your eyes to the wonder of the world.

You can’t remove the challenges from life, but you can respond to them in a way that makes you smarter and tougher. Build up your mental strength now so you’ll be ready to thrive under any conditions. Believe in yourself and use setbacks as stepping stones to greater happiness and success.

Low Self Esteem: 10 Causes

10 Causes of Low Self-Esteem

Soooo many people suffer from low self-esteem. Some know the source of it and some wonder why they feel this way.  Many causes of low self-esteem come from childhood. Then there are those who did great and childhood and difficult challenges confronted them. Self-esteem plummeted.

Some have said that we spend the last 60 years of life recovering from the first 18 years. Later in life bad marriage, job difficulties and other problems contribute to low self-esteem

Let’s look at some ways to raise you self-esteem. This post is a general overview. I’ll elaborate on points in this post one day at a time.

You don’t need to be mired in low self-esteem.

I’m also going to take you through simple ways to eliminate the pain from causes of low self-esteem. There are ways to move past what you are feeling and discover the joy within you.

Here are 10 self-esteem challenges:

        1. Peer group. The first peer group is school. It could be pre-school or later years. People want to fit in and be accepted. When that doesn’t happen you begin to wonder if something has is wrong with you. If you look different, are differently abled, or have learning challenges, life to can traumatic. Sometimes you just come into a new school and the “mean kids” begin to bully you. As adults, the same thing can happen.Some adults grow up and some never do. They don’t mature emotionally and continue to pick on those who are different, those they’re afraid of, or the new folks.The pain from these wounds can carry over to adulthood resulting in chronic depression and anxiety.
        2. Family. This probably should have been first, but let’s talk about it now. Some parents just aren’t nice people. They’re unsupportive and critical parents or other family members who keep belittling the child. It’s difficult to grow up in a family who doesn’t help and support you.If you had siblings, they can also be cruel. They may be jealous of you because you came along. You get picked on by them. The end result is you have no safe place to be. Your sense of yourself struggles.

          Even when you come from a strong and supportive family, there are events which hurt. Yes, it may have been best for you not to have that cookie before dinner when you are two, but the two-year-old self may carry the feelings of being denied what they really wanted. I know that seems strange, but it is true.

       

    1. Previous mistakes. Everyone makes mistakes. How you handle those mistakes determines whether they boost your self-esteem or decimate it. The key is to see everything that happens in life as a learning experience. When you objectively look at the event and evaluate what you could have changed to have a different outcome, you’ll learn from the experience.Of course, the pain from your mistakes can stay with you. You can learn to let that go. Why not choose to release it? Learn from the mistakes and release the pain. It makes life easier.

    2. Your thoughts can knock you down. Negative thought patterns only get worse. They may start out with something someone said to you, or something you said to yourself. As you grow older, you keep those same thoughts and make them more negative. These thoughts affect how you feel about yourself. They also have an effect upon your body which will have you feeling even worse. That’s why it’s so important to say positive things to yourself. Don’t underestimating the power of your thoughts.What is one positive thought you can use today? It can be simple. “I know I can. I know I can.” One if you think life is just going absolutely wrong for you is, “My life is changing for the better.”

    3. Failure goes hand-in hand with mistakes. Whether you failed to win the big game, blew that presentation, or land the big client, perceived failure can result in a loss of confidence and self-esteem. Just as with mistakes above, Reframe how you view failure. Itemize what you learned from the experience.When you discover something you could have changed, write that down. In your imagination, rehears doing it the new way. This will ingrain your learning within you.You are a learning machine. Open your mind to learn from what has had an adverse result. You can do this.

    4. Unreasonable expectations regarding challenging goals. It’s wonderful to have big goals. The problem can be when you focus on the huge goal rather than on the smaller steps it takes to achieve the goal. Break your wonderful challenging goal into steps which you can do, one at a time. The small successes build your self-confidence and move you forward to your goal.Take your goal and break it into small achievable steps. Put those steps in order and begin on the first one. Celebrate each success.

    5. Body Image. you’ve heard, “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” We can say the same thing about people, “Don’t judge others by appearances.” Society does judge people on appearances. You probably do the same yourself. You may judge yourself based upon your appearance.

    There are things about your body you can’t change and things you can. Strive to move your body toward a healthy ideal, but accept that everyone is shaped differently. Change can take time.

    You also have to ask yourself if you are willing to do what is necessary to change your appearance. If so, make a plan and stick to it. If not, accept yourself the way you are.

    8. Trauma. Trauma can take many forms: sexual, physical, or emotional. Any of these can result in low self-esteem. What makes trauma worse is that it can make changes in your brain. These changes can result in fear, anger, hyper-vigilance and more.

    If you’re suffering from the results of traumatic experiences, getting professional help can be helpful. There are also simple healing experience you can use which can reduce that pain.

    9. Poor academic performance. School has a social component, but it’s supposed to be about the academics. Poor grades can be viewed as failing the purpose of attending school in the first place.

    Learning challenges can result in low self-esteem. When you struggle to learn and just can’t do it as well as others, you often feel “less than” your classmates. Your struggles with little effort can lead you to believing you can’t succeed. You may not succeed in that way, but there are strategies you can use to work around learning difficulties.

    10. Media. Media puts forth images of success and beauty that are out of reach for the average person. It doesn’t help that many of those images are manufactured and inaccurate. You have your own gifts and talents. Know, when you compare yourself to another, you are comparing how you feel with how someone appears to be. You don’t know how they feel.

    Low self-esteem is a common challenge of more people than you know. Understanding the cause of your low opinion of yourself can help to determine the solution.  Once you know the cause you can look for the solution. Often the solution is the same: healing, forgiving, releasing and changing how you think and respond.

    We’ll go into more detail in other posts.

    In the meantime, take 15-minutes to learn about a powerful healing prayer which can assist in your healing and releasing of the past.

Why Being Proactive is So Important

Why Being Proactive is So Important

Things are going to go wrong. That’s just part of life. Whether these situations have a large negative impact or are merely minor inconveniences depends on how proactive you are. Living a life of reacting to problems in the heat of the moment magnifies challenges and adds undue stress to your life.

Proactivity minimizes challenges and provides stability in life. It’s easier to be calm, cool, and collected if you’re proactive.

Choose proactivity and exercise control over your life:

  1. Proactivity is a way of defusing potential challenges before they become problems.
  • Imagine you have a car with 250,000 miles. There’s a good chance it will break down in the next couple of years. If you’re proactive, you’ll either go purchase a newer car before that happens, or you’ll start saving money for repairs or to make an automobile purchase.
  • The person that isn’t proactive will be begging for a ride or taking the bus in the near future.
  1. Give yourself the opportunity to develop more elegant solutions. When you wait until the last minute, most of the possible solutions evaporate. You don’t have the time or the resources to entertain all of the possible solutions. You’re forced to patch together whatever will work in the heat of the moment.
  2. Think and plan. To be proactive, it’s necessary to look ahead and consider your likely future. This is more effective than living life by the seat of your pants.
  3. Create a better life. Living reactively is a recipe for merely surviving. You spend all of your time putting out fires instead of creating a better life. Proactivity allows the space and the luxury to create something beyond that which you already have.
  4. Feel empowered. When you’re proactive, you take responsibility for your life and believe that your ability to choose your actions matters. By waiting until there’s an issue before taking action, you simply react to life instead of designing it.
  5. Enjoy more choices. Suppose things are a little rocky at work. Your boss doesn’t like you, and his power is growing by the day. If you start looking for a new job today, you’ll have plenty of potential choices. If you wait until you’re fired, you might have to take whatever you can find in the next couple of weeks.
  • You have unlimited options if you’re proactive. You have few if you wait until you’re forced to act.
  1. Find greater peace of mind. Live your life with less anxiety. You already know what’s going to happen and you’re prepared for it. What do you have to worry about?
  • When you live reactively, you’re always waiting for the other shoe to drop. That’s a stressful way to live.
  1. Being proactive makes the path forward clearer. Choosing to look ahead allows you to develop a plan for the future. Proactive people have a direction and a plan to get there.

There are many benefits to exercising proactivity each day. Proactive people have control over their lives. Challenges can be nullified before they become full-blown issues. It’s a more enjoyable and effective way to live. Spend a few minutes each evening looking ahead for a day, a week, a month, a year, and five years.

What does the future hold? How can you maximize your opportunities and minimize your potential challenges?

Are You Highly Sensitive to Stimuli?

What it Means to be Highly Sensitive

Let’s chat about those people who some call overly sensitive. This is often used as a pejorative term. People who don’t have this trait, about 80% of the world, roll their eyes and get frustrated with those who might call themselves “High Sensitives.” They are more sensitives to noise, stimulation, and crowds than most people.

Let’s look at this trait for a moment.

Highly sensitive don’t have something wrong with them. Even though sensory stimulation may overwhelm them, it doesn’t mean they have a disorder. Their brains simply process information differently than those who love stimulation. About one in five people could be described as having “high sensitivity.” That’s 20% of the population.

If you feel you are more sensitive to sensory stimuli than others, know you’re just different. You need to learn how to handle stimulation. If you’re in relationship with someone who is what you call “overly sensitive,” be aware they are not making things up or just being dramatic. Being overwhelmed by sensory stimuli grates on the nerves. It hurts.

There is a term for this trait: Sensory-Processing Sensitivity or SPS. Those who study such things have found that nearly all animals, including dogs, cats, fish, and horses, have demonstrated this trait. Even insects can have the SPS trait, which is surprising since I never thought of insects in that manner.

Common Traits of Highly Sensitive People:

    1. Cry easily. Do you cry at commercials? Some people cry at commercials designed to tug at the heart strings. Those with SPS or may when overstressed or uncertain. They cry when happy. Many people will smile indulgently at them, which can be infuriating for the one crying. Those who do the crying are often embarrassed by how easily tears flow.

    2. React more strongly.  The “average” person thinks that the highly sensitive person “overreacts” to situations. They are more emotional and their reactions are stronger. This is confusing to others as well as to them. Have you noticed how some people are more susceptible to being cold than others? The SPS individual feels their feelings more strongly than others.

    3.  Are more self-critical. Highly sensitive people are highly self-critical. They know how to beat themselves up. Anything less than perfection can be a source of anxiety and embarrassment. Knowing they respond differently often embarrasses them. When someone points out their shortcomings, they will react much more strongly than others, and feel embarrassed because they do.

    4. Become overwhelmed in crowds. The highly-sensitive person feels bombarded by the sights, sounds and emotions of people in a crowd. This can be the mall, where they may suddenly drop everything and walk out immediately, or at a large family gathering. If there are people talking, bright lights, music and other stimuli all at once, the highly sensitive person will either not go or stay for a short amount of time. I have a friend who can become easily overwhelmed at the mall. When she says she must leave, she means right now.
    5. Are more annoyed by stray stimuli. Whether it’s a squeaking noise in the car or a seam in a sock, highly sensitive people are less able to ignore annoying stimuli. The tic-toc of a clock can keep them from sleeping. A rattle in the car or someone clicking a pen can set their nerves on edge.

    6. Take criticism poorly. I haven’t met anyone who likes criticism. Even mild criticism can elicit a strong emotional reaction in the highly sensitive.

    7. Easily overwhelmed by time pressure. When there’s a lot to get done in a short amount of time, they struggle with anxiety, even panic attacks.
    8. Pick up the feelings of others. The highly sensitive person will know when you’re upset even before you do. They are affected by the emotions of those around them and have difficulty separating the emotions of others from their own.

Is this you or someone you’re close to?

There are strategies you can use to keep yourself in balance and lessen the effects of the SPS trait:

  • Get enough sleep. Your brain needs the processing time sleep provides.
  • Avoid excessive amounts of caffeine. You don’t need anything else which can stimulate your nervous system.
  • Meditate or spend time in a quiet place relaxing.
  • Avoid noisy, highly-stimulating environments. Go shopping when there are fewer people.
  • Give yourself enough time to complete tasks.
  • Engage in positive self-talk.
  • Learn to breathe deeply. Deep breaths calm down your nervous system.

The Power of the Body Talk System

If you or someone you know is a highly sensitive person, understanding this characteristic can reduce frustration and assist those around you. There are ways, using energetic healing such as The BodyTalk System and Encodements, which can help you stay in balance.

Body Talk works with the consciousness of your body. By keeping your brain in balance and balancing the emotions and sensations which can overwhelm you, the highly sensitive person can handle stimuli more easily. They will also be able to control their own thoughts and emotions.

Balancing Your Encodement System

Encodements are your smallest energy structures. By learning to balance your Encodement System, you will be able to remove other people’s energy from your body and better handle your own.

Stay Centered and Grounded

By focusing on your heart and imagining growing roots from your feet, you can stay centered and grounded. You won’t be as easily thrown off balance by the sights, sounds and emotions of others.

Watch What You Eat

I’m not talking about watching the food as it goes in your mouth. The highly sensitive person needs to be aware of what the changes made by the food industry to your food do to your body. Added colors, preservatives, and other chemicals can cause your nervous system and brain to react with greater sensitivity. You don’t want your nerves over-reacting. You want a nice, even nerve impulse. Eat foods as close to coming out of the ground as you can.

Top 10 Things You Need in Order to be Successful

Top 10 Things You Need in Order to be Successful

Do you have what it takes to be successful? You don’t need the right family, an inheritance, supportive parents, good looks, or anything else that’s beyond your control. Those things can certainly make the road smoother, but they’re not imperative.

You can create everything you need to be successful:

  1. A vision for the future. It’s important to know what you want. How will you get what you want if you don’t know what you want? A vision for the future is the same as making decisions about what you want and don’t want.
  • That vision also provides the motivation to continue when things become challenging, and they will.
  1. Goals. Once you have a vision, you’re in the position to create goals to make that vision a reality. Failing to have goals is deciding to keep your life the same.
  2. The ability to create habits. A thin, attractive, healthy body is the result of an effective set of habits. Effective habits will also provide you with a healthy bank account. Your ability to reach your goals is largely dependent on your ability to create and implement habits.
  3. The ability to connect with others. There aren’t too many things you can do completely on your own. Others will be involved along the way. They might be customers, clients, suppliers, partners, or the public at large.
  4. The ability to deal with discomfort. Success involves change. Change is uncomfortable. How do you handle discomfort? Do you become overwhelmed, grab the remote, and head for the couch with a plate full of cookies? Or do you take a deep breath, step up, and take care of business?
  • Successful people are able to act even when they feel uncomfortable.
  1. Proactivity. Successful people look ahead and make appropriate plans. They see their future opportunities and challenges and modify their plans and behaviors accordingly. Life also goes more smoothly if you’re proactive.
  2. Grit. Much of the journey to reach your goals isn’t fun or exciting. It’s a grind. The ability to persevere when there’s nothing exciting going on is a good way to gauge how successful you can become. The easier it is for you to give up, the less likely you are to be successful.
  3. Patience. Patience and grit are related. Creating success requires time and patience. Patience is necessary to see concrete results. Without patience, frustration eventually wins.
  4. A regular review of your results. Having a vision and goals isn’t enough. It’s important to review the results you’re getting. Is your plan working? Could you make some changes that would bring better results? Measure and review your results regularly.
  5. A good sense of humor. Life is funny. Things will go wrong no matter how well you prepare. Unique opportunities pop up along the way. If you can laugh at life and its follies, you’ll have a better chance of experiencing and enjoying success.

Success doesn’t require anything outside of your control. You need a vision, a plan to get there, and the ability to follow through. You can be as successful as anyone you’ve ever known. Take control and create a life that pleases you. Begin today by creating a vision of the future that compels you to make goals and take action.

Fear of Failure: How to Push through Fear

Fear of Failure

What is the Fear of Failure

Have you ever had that gut-wrenching fear of failure tie you in knots?

If you define success by the inner quality of feeling proud of your accomplishments, I believe everyone wants to be successful.

Many people who look outwardly successful have an emotional program of fear of failure running in the background of their lives.

For successful people this fear propels them forward. They do everything they can to be sure failure doesn’t catch up to them. The problem is they will make decisions based upon what they don’t want to happen. In other words, they are always looking in the rear view mirror attempting to outrun failure rather than looking ahead to the successful outcome of their actions.

The “rear view mirror” outlook is not a pleasant one. There is a vague, and sometimes profound feeling of discontent and anxiety that failure will overtake them. They “see” in their mind’s eye all they have accomplished laying in shards around their feet.

This is not happiness. There is no Joy in focusing on outrunning that which you are attempting to avoid. There will always be this dissatisfaction driving them to the next activity so they can feel secure, successful. The problem is that as long as the fear of failure is what drives them, there is no safety, no security.

Depending upon how strong the fear is, judgment can be clouded resulting in bad decisions made impulsively. This can make the fear a reality.

The Power of Focusing on Success

Runners are told to never look back and see who might be catching up with them. That second of changing their focus from the finish line slows them down enough where the person one-step behind could pull ahead.

Always focus ahead.

When you’re focusing on success you’re not imagining what you do which can go wrong. You’re focusing on those actions which will move you forward.

This is huge when you realize the role of your subconscious mind in failure or success.

Your subconscious mind doesn’t care whether you fail or succeed. That’s because it only does what it thinks you want it to do. If you are holding failure in your mind, that’s what you subconscious mind thinks you want. It will do everything it can to make that happen for you.

Ahh, but if you hold success in mind, then that is where your subconscious mind will lead you.

Align Your Subconscious Mind with Success

Let’s look at some ways to get your subconscious mind on board with what you want.

Define Success

You have to realize your subconscious mind is concrete. It doesn’t deal in abstracts. If  you say you want to succeed and then move into fear by imagining all that can go wrong, then that is how your subconscious mind will define success. Not what you want!

Give your subconscious mind actual cues of what success means to you.

Vision BoardsRoad to success

This is easy and it’s fun. You may have heard about constructing a vision board. That’s where you cut out
pictures and words and put them on a poster board. The very process of looking for images and sayings of what you wants assists your subconscious mind in knowing what you want.

Post your vision board where you can see it. But, don’t just look at it. Imagine your are experiencing every one of those things on your vision board. If you put a boat on your board then feel yourself on it, the wind in your face, the warmth of the sun. Feel the joy!

Mental Images

These are mental vision boards. I suggest you have several. I’ll tell you why in a moment.

Construct a mental success image now. Yep, right now. It won’t take long.

What do you want to accomplish? See you accomplishing it. If you want to run and complete a marathon, see yourself crossing the finish line. Hear people cheering your success. Feel the sweat dripping down your body and the smile on your face. Feel the emotion of success. Revel in that emotion of success. Hear what people say to you about your success. Hear you congratulating your success.

Now form another mental success image. Perhaps it’s learning a craft. My example will be making jewelry. Bring to mind a piece you’d like to make. Feel the completed gorgeous piece in your hands. Hear people ohh and ahh when seeing it. Again, feel that satisfaction in your body.

Everyday bring to mind these mental images in all their sensory detail. Tell your subconscious mind, “This is success.” Then go into the image, feelings, sounds, tastes and smells.

Use these images any time fear of failure rears it’s ugly self-confidence draining ugly head. Tell that fear, “Liar. This is where I’m going.” Then bring those images to mind.

You can do this. Get rid of the rear view mirror and move forward to success!

I’m cheering you on.
