YOUR "LIFE PLATE"

Life Plate

Your “LIFE PLATE”: MAKING SENSE of feeling Overwhelmed:

Quote of the Day: REMEMBER, THE EXPERT IN ANYTHING WAS ONCE A BEGINNER

Ever experience that scenario where you have your days planned, you’re kicking ass and taking names and things are going pretty well and you are moving in the right direction in life? But then all of a sudden find yourself backing off from certain tasks or commitments and saying things like “Sorry I have to cancel” or “Sorry I am gonna have to pass” or just not show up or follow through at all? 

Let’s MAKE-SENSE of this for a second here and perhaps find a breakthrough. 

Let’s imagine that all the things you want and need to get done to move your ship forward were the same thing as food? Why is it that yesterday, we find the clarity and courage to place food on our “Life Plate” and do so with full clarity that you intend to eat it and need it and want it and see it as exactly what your stomach needs to be happy? But then something happens! Sometimes even hours later or the next day decide that it’s too much food and you no longer can eat it. Followed by starting to strategically and apologetically remove items one by one from our plate with the same level of certainty that we had when we put them on yesterday? Simply put, you strategically convince yourself and others that you are no longer hungry to eat that food and it’s now too much!!

This is a metaphor that affects us all on a daily basis and the good news is that you CAN do something about it. Well, if you want to. 

After learning this you may decide that you prefer to continue standing in the way of your success and that’s what is so cool about success, happiness and fulfillment. It’s a choice and it’s yours. 

So how do we continue to eat the food we have put on our LIFE PLATE even when the little liar and ill intention-ed messengers of “you can’t” are swooping down out of the sky like Fire Breathing Dragons? How do we SLAY THESE DRAGONS and complete the task and move past GO and collect $200? 

In affect become a DRAGON SLAYER? It’s pretty profound but simple.  Just become conscious of them and what they really are. When that dragon begins to swoop down and passively communicate with your mind like a puppet, telling you there is too much on your plate, recognize that like a broken record, you are hitting your Hidden Barrier. 

PS: Got this from a profound book i read called THE BIG LEAP by Gay Hendricks.

In this case the one that tells you there is too much to handle and has the “Little Liar” in your head tell you that you are overwhelmed and must abort the mission. Become aware that it is happening and embrace the fact that it was created by you and engineered to be a safety valve to make sure you don’t go to the place where you might fall or fail. Also recognize that yesterday, you placed all the items on your Life Plate for a very specific reason? To move forward and uncover more success, happiness, health and fulfillment.  

Here is the secret to moving forward today. When the dragons show up and the Little Liar begins to tell you what to do, look at it with Joyful Eyes and realize that you created this safety valve and you are about to upgrade your current reality to a more fulfilled place, which is achieved by simply recognizing that it’s GO TIME and that moment is a gift of growth. You know, many of the people I coach in their health goals or business goals claim that this process of never moving forward and always falling own is exhausting and sucks the life out of them. I frequently reply with the reality that this process was actually fabricated by them so in actuality they are sucking the life out of themselves.

Give it a try today? What’s the risk? Much greater than the risk of not trying right?

With Love, Dragon

FLOW BURGLARS

FROM THE DRAGONSLAIR

FLOW BURGLARS:

Have you ever had a great day? Like one of those days where everything just seems to be going your way and you simply can’t fail even if you tried? Effortless success. The kind of success you chalk up to luck or maybe even thinking that God must really love you?

This is known as being in the FLOW STATE and it actually has very little to do with timing. In reality, it is something controlled by you and in another discussion we we’ll talk about how you can start to hack flow.

But today I want to direct your attention to the FLOW BURGLARS! You know those negative people or things that seem to come at us while we are in the ecstatic flow state?

The ones who want to constantly stomp out your fire? We call these the flow burglars. And guess what? They are there for a reason. Their purpose is simply to challenge your conviction towards your goals and mission. They have been put here to try and throw you off so they can see how bad you want that dream life full of joy, happiness, health, hope, and freedom that you envision for yourself. But beware... they are extremely good at stealing your flow.

Like a burglar that strategically goes after the right house, these flow burglars will go after specific people and specific scenarios. They like to go after those who are showing signs of flying high. Those who are in the “Flow State.”

When in the Flow State you become the target “home” for a burglary.

But, remember, they have no impact on your flow outside of the impact you allow them to have. So send them packing! You need only show them commitment, discipline, and consistency in your life. These principles are the equivalent of the home that has a state of the art security system that informs the burglar that it is impossible to enter.

So... Do you know what you want and why to the extent where you won’t be knocked down no matter what?

Are you in full-out action? Then you are experiencing FLOW often. Is your security system strong enough? Your conviction, commitment, and discipline?

This day right here… it’s yours.
