Do You Know What Is In Your Hand?

 n. hillToday is the first day of 2013~ I am so excited to see what new adventures are in store for me & my family. But as I think about YOU and how you will be used in this New Year, there is no stopping you.Every year at New Years, there’s lots of talk about change, resolutions, and making the next year better than the last.  You have the opportunity to co-create the life you really want to live.

So how exactly do you make that transformation?be different

Your prosperity grows exactly as fast as you do:  No faster, no slower.  The only way to really increase your wealth is to increase the value you provide.  And that means growing yourself.   You need daily self-development time, to work on your body, mind and soul.  You have to be learning new knowledge and developing new wisdom.  I believe this is best done in the morning, so you set your intention and create your consciousness for the whole day.

Learning to see the richness of the resources you already possess is a master key to your success. What can you do now, today, with what you already have to move forward toward your dreams and goals? Don’t get trapped in the quicksand of comparison, lamenting the talents, gifts, and opportunities of others while overlooking your very own. You are not lacking!

 Who is in your network? Which life experiences can you build onWhich talents can you begin to develop?

You are abounding with unique opportunities and untapped talents.  Take an inventory of your strengths, gifts, and resources. Open your eyes to your own opportunities. Which abilities come naturally and effortlessly that you can use today? 

 

Do not delay the pursuit of your dreams and goals because you believe you are unqualified to do so. The craving for more credentials will cause you to discredit what you already know and what you already can do. This can become a pursuit of validation rather than education. You are already well equipped and qualified to begin!

I love to grow daily, reading more, loving more~ adding more harmony into our lives. This past month has been one of most difficult times for me & my family. After losing my mom in October, then Holiday set in. I began a new 90 Day online Challenge with one of my mentors, so excited about truly getting my internet marketing to take off. Mid December I caught the worst flu bug I have ever had, I am the one who never gets sick. I was totally stopped in my tracks, stuck in bed. sprouts

As I became aware that I was not going to be able to do much, I knew one thing~ control my thoughts and visualize my desires & dreams. I listen consistently to powerful  messages about controlling my thought life. This was not a time for me to take a vacation from my thoughts. It would of been very easy to slide down hill and bury myself in pity. Instead I focused on everything that was going into my mind, and not letting any junk in. Which is why today I am writing about what we hold in our destiny…The best way to predict the future is to create it. – Peter Drucker

Learning is a lifelong journey. Do what you can, with what you have, where you are. What is in your hand?

Make a list of actions you can do now, and begin today. Yes, you should always seek to gain more knowledge, skills, and strategies, but completing that objective is not a precursor to reporting to your starting line. Set your goals and GO!  discipline

May you be truly blessed in the New Year & as the whole year unfolds ♥

To your success!

*Expect The Best:

“The greatest discovery of any generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitude.”http://www.suzanbafford.com

 

William James was an original thinker in and between the disciplines of physiology, psychology and philosophy. His twelve-hundred page masterwork, The Principles of Psychology(1890), is a rich blend of physiology, psychology, philosophy, and personal reflection that has given us such ideas as “the stream of thought” and the baby’s impression of the world “as one great blooming, buzzing confusion” (PP 462). It contains seeds of pragmatism and phenomenology, and influenced generations of thinkers in Europe and America, including Edmund Husserl, Bertrand Russell, John Dewey, and Ludwig Wittgenstein. James studied at Harvard’s Lawrence Scientific School and the School of Medicine, but his writings were from the outset as much philosophical as scientific. “Some Remarks on Spencer’s Notion of Mind as Correspondence” (1878) and “The Sentiment of Rationality” (1879, 1882) presage his future pragmatism and pluralism, and contain the first statements of his view that philosophical theories are reflections of a philosopher’s temperament.

William James

 

What are you expecting today? Set your mind to expect the best! You command the tone for your day, your year, and your life. Do not wait for events to unfold. Make the decision in advance to expect the best.

Make the commitment to pull every ounce of positivity out of the day before it ever begins. Declare what your day will have in store. It is not the circumstances that arise that matter, it is how you choose to interpret them and respond to them that will dictate the direction of your day and your life.

Are you expecting to struggle or to soar? Are you expecting trouble or triumph? Ask yourself, “What is the best that can happen today?”

Expect good breaks. Expect to make a great business connection. Expect to have something positive happen unexpectedly. Expect to finish your project on time. Expect to close the deal. Expect that your proposal will be welcomed. Expect to have more energy and to feel better. Expect to enjoy the visit with your in-laws. Expect your children to do well in school, and to listen to your counsel. Expect creative ideas to flow into your mind. Expect to find the answer to a difficult problem.

Do you have an attitude of expectancy? Wake up each day ready to win. Command the day to line up with your expectations. Command your mind to find the good in every situation. Take control of your thoughts
throughout the day, and make them align with your expectations.

You can change your life by changing your attitude. Expect the best!

Be a Blessing,

Suzan

God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.

Ephesians 3:20 (The Message)

“We all have the extraordinary coded within us, waiting to be released.

Every morning I have a accountability call with a few members on our team, the leaders Iwork with in my primary business.

Power Coach Madeline Alexander

At some point in your journey of achievement, you must come to fully realize who you are, and you must recognize the exceptional gifting that you carry within you. It dose not serve you to play small and insignificant. Your brilliancewas never intended to be bound and bridled. You were not created for containment. To be average is alien to your DNA. The compellingvision that burns within you is not by accident. The mission was not misplaced when it was placed in you. No it was planned with precision, and entrusted to you on purpose, along with every gift and ability you will ever need to masterfully fulfill it. Your burning desire to rise higher and to break free of ritual and routine is the extraordinarygifting inside of you demanding to be expressed. Will you release it? Will you silence the limiting beliefs that question your qualifications? Will you shake off the self-criticism that scrutinizes your skills?



Success Power Coach

Don’t miss your moment by tearing down your talents! There is no need to second guess yourself. You have everything you need to succeed! Stop underestimating your excellence! You are thoroughly equipped for every great work. You are empoweredto exceed all expectations. You are equipped to beextraordinary!

from Madeline Alexander book called ” How to Break Through Barriers & Achieve Power Results.”

Have been an entrepreneur all my life, grew up with my family of business owners. Knowing when I grew up I would own my own business as well. One thing that is really important to me is grooming our children for success, what kids learn at home is what they always turn back to when they grow up… A Native of Arizona, born and raised in Flagstaff~~ we are 3 rd generation of the town. Have lived all over the western states and love all of them. My favorite is Seattle, I would love to spend more time in the mountains. The desert is very beautiful, but the hot gets old very quickly… 3 beautiful daughters, 5 grand-babies. My husband is a fire fighter and the most loving, caring man I ever meet in my entire life. He is my dream come true, even after 21 years of marriage. Life is grand and I am super grateful all the Blessings & favor that I believe God has poured upon me & my family. I love becoming better everyday, in by making sure Jesus is in all that I do, say and think ♥

Do You See What I See?

As I was reading my daily morning activity to get me thinking correctly, I had a huge revolution! As our world is in such turmoil and confusion, people have lost hope in the way of life as I have known it. It came to me that Love & Joy it what matters to all of us most. Of course we need to make a living, have a home and add to our community. What is so exciting for today & everyday  who we become on this journey of life.

“I only wish you could see what I see when I look at you.” -Kobi Yamada

I Believe!

The start to a better world, or a better job, or a better relationship, or a better future is our belief that it is possible. The quotations in the Believe gift book are so inspiring and affirming, especially in these difficult times. They remind us that the future really does belong to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. Give the Believe book with confidence for almost any occasion. Remind your friends, family or loved ones to believe in their dreams to believe that the best is yet to be to believe there’s light at the end of the tunnel to believe that they might be that light for someone else.

When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see the common, the ordinary, or the extraordinary? Do you see your past or your potential? Do you see failure for the fantastic finish designed in your future? Do you see the trials or the triumph? do you see mediocrity or magnificence? It is time for you to see yourself as the unique and truly amazing person that your are. It is time to redefine your self-perception to accurately reflect the perspective of your Creator, who made you in the image of greatness. It is time to shed your self-criticism, and hyper-focus on past mistakes and failures. Are you beating your self up, or building yourself up? Now is the time to celebrate the extraordinary in you. I see you through the eyes of the One that made you for this time and for a purpose. I see power, strength, and beauty. I see integrity, honesty and loyalty. I see endurance tenacity and perseverance . I see a creative genius. I see a leader. I see a brilliant business owner; and extraordinary entrepreneur. I see a loving, nurturing mother, and a committed, compassionate father. I see kindness, generosity, and compassion. I see determination, diligence, and destiny. I see a conqueror, and over-comer, and world changer. Do you see what I see?

 

Have a beautiful day ♥

This Is IT!!!

I have been so inspired by Mr. Peck quotes over the last few years. Seems like I read the specific one on the day I really need to understand and absorb the thought or action that is laid out before me!

The first book he published was in 1978 called “The Road Less Traveled”. I haven’t had a chance to read all 14 of his books, as they have such and amazing balance of God with in their entirety. Great man of God to research and soak in a bit of his wisdom & knowledge

“The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.”

~ M. Scott Peck

My overview of (A Road Less Traveled)!!!
There is a day that will come when you will decide enough is enough. In your hour of anguish and frustration, you will make a decision that you deserve better. There is a moment that will speak to you louder than any other moment of your life. “This is not acceptable.” In that moment you will declare, “This is it. I have had enough. I can do more than this. I deserve better than this. I can rise higher than where I am now.” In this moment you will stop coping. In this moment, you will stop minimizing. “It’s not so bad.” In this moment you will see it for what it really is, and you will be ready to take a stand. This is the precise moment that everything will change for you. This is the moment when you prepare for battle. You will look up and finally see your future. You will see your summit. You will dig deep and summon your courage and confidence. You will call upon your drive and determination. You will ignite your passion. You will fuel your will to fight. You will take a stand. You will step out. You will search for the solution. You will make a bold move. You will
conquer your fears. You will break off your bonds, and shatter your shackles. Welcome to your liberation. You are now free. This is it!

This scripture goes great with “This is it”

Just then a woman who had suffered for twelve years with constant bleeding came up behind him. She touched the fringe of his robe, for she thought, “If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed.” Jesus turned around, and when he saw her he said, “Daughter, be encouraged! Your faith has made you well.” And the woman was healed at that moment.

Matthew 9:20-22 (NLT)

BE A BLESSING TO SOMEONE TODAY!!
