“Be careful what you set your heart upon- for it will surely be yours.” James Baldwin

Living the law of attraction is no easy task. It takes practice and a positive mindset. The universe will provide you with whatever you desire. Are you welcoming abundance into your life or are you obsessing over the things you lack? Making a conscious shift in your thought pattern can aid you in attracting the life you truly want to live. Be fully present and listen to the requests you are sending out into the universe.

What will you STOP rejecting and what will you START embracing?

Ponder This…

What risks are you willing to take to get you where you want to be?

When you take risks you gift yourself with the opportunity to learn. Regardless if your attempt is a success or a failure, learning brings with it its own rewards. Take pride in the risks you have taken. In the grand scheme of things the lessons are just as important as the desired outcome.

Competition Versus Creativeness

“Competition attempts to be like. Creativeness attempts to be unlike.” -U. S Anderson I don’t know about you, but I choose to be unlike anyone out there. We were each put on this earth with a unique purpose. In the entire world there is no one like you. Stop trying to be what you think others want you to be. Let’s stop being ridiculous, and embrace the fact that we are each essential in our own way. You have been living in the trap of competition for long enough. Why fight to have the same as everyone else when you can strive to obtain something different? Let go of the idea that the value system of the group is the same as your own. What do you value? What do have you to contribute that is good, and true, and unique?

Just as a painter puts paint to canvas with only his/her imagination and creativity guiding his vision, so too should we lead our individual lives. Paint the life you envision suiting your wants, and needs, not the life you see suiting others. It is only when we see value in our individual existence that we can look at life with creativity and wonder. We will take risks and explore every desire, every question, and every ambition that rises from within our minds. We will trust our intuition and resourcefulness, and know that every move we make manifested because we saw fit to make it so.

Say YES Today

How many times have you shied away from saying YES to you? 

e993ab1eb289076fe3234c98ab6dba21

 

Say YES today! I challenge you all to say YES to 5 things that will bring you joy today. When we say YES we acknowledge ourselves in a way that no one else can. We honor our truth and we step fully into our power. Stop putting your needs and desires on the back burner. When we say yes to ourselves we honor our needs and values. Let go of the notion that saying yes is self-serving.  How we treat ourselves sets the tone for how others treat us. Love yourself enough to say YES! Stop dreaming about a better life. Act upon it today.

Speak Up!

Speak up!

You have been gifted with a unique voice. It is a voice that matters.  It is a voice that should be heard.  Commit to sharing  your thoughts and feelings as they emerge from within. We exist to discover and to speak our truth. When we avoid letting others know what we are thinking and feeling in the moment, we disregard our authentic self.  Speak your truth at every opportunity. Holding things in serves absolutely no one.

What would your life be like if you lived these words everyday?

How would it feel to live from a place of love?

What adventures would you experience if “Yes” was a word you were never afraid to use?

What have you got left to learn?

Is there more love for you to give?

Are you living the life that you yearn to live?

Dream. Believe. Unlock

1453425_845653501762_368037463_nDream. Believe. Unlock. 

Last week I was inspired by a post entitled Are you setting goals for 2014? Conceptualize instead written by my friend Miisa Mink from Driven Woman. In this post Miisa shared with her readers the idea of trading in New Year’s resolutions for three concepts that will push people towards action. Miisa expressed that rather than creating a list of goals this year, why not identify three words that describe what you want to achieve or how you want to feel during the year. In her post she gives the example of a person wanting to lose weight for the New Year. Instead of listing a new year’s resolution such as “I will to lose weight”, why not use a word that will motivate you to take action. In Miisa’s post she used the word “green” to represent what this person would need to eat if they really wanted to achieve their desired weight loss goal. In reading this post I was inspired to share the three words that have been motivating me to take action for the past 2 years. If you’ve got three words of your own please visit Miisa’s post and share your feedback.

If you are a frequent visitor of Ambition in the City you have probably seen me include the words dream, believe and unlock on several of my blog posts. Over the past 2 years these words have slowly evolved into what is now my coaching motto. I started to recognize how often I would use these words in my coaching and writing when I wanted to inspire clients and readers towards action. What I have discovered over time is that these words have aided me to not only make significant changes in my own life, but they have helped several of my clients and readers to reconnect with their courageconfidence and choice.  As we get this new year off and running I hope that you can find inspiration in these three little words and start thinking about words that could possibly start motivating you towards positive change.

Dream

What would life be like if there were no dreamers in the world?  In order to impact change in your life you must be willing to dream. As a life coach, cultivating my client’s curiosity and creativity is always one of my main objectives. It is only when we can tap into that part of ourselves that houses our childish enthusiasm and hunger for exploration that we can truly step into our power. When we are open to dreaming we give ourselves an opportunity to be curious and play. We allow for our thoughts to stretch past the farthest reaches of our imagination and we are given a chance to dive head first into the unknown.

What makes dreamers so unique? Dreamers have the courage to question and explore. They don’t disregard their thoughts, ideas or ambitions, they give these things the space they need to grow and flourish. Dreamers allow their ideas to sprout and take form. When you can approach your dreams with curiosity rather than fear or doubt you muster the courage necessary to believe that whatever you can create in your mind can in fact be made a reality.

“A dreamer will not stop having that dream until it has been fulfilled” -J. Wilson

Believe

What dreamers have that others often lack is the confidence and faith that their dreams have value in this world. When we can attach value to our goals we strengthen their power. We give them significance and purpose in our life and in turn empower ourselves to identify creative and unique methods that will propel us towards action. Dreamers believe in their capacity to create change in their own lives because they recognize the choice that exists for them. It is the choice to see past all limiting beliefs in an effort to embrace possibility.  The dreamer that connects to their courage and confidence see’s no obstacle they can’t overcome. They step confidently into the unknown with an open heart and an open mind because they believe in their mission and purpose in life.

“Humanity does not suffer from the disease of wrong beliefs but humanity suffers from the contagious nature of the lack of belief. If you have no magic with you it is not because magic does not exist but it is because you do not believe in it. Even if the sun shines brightly upon your skin every day, if you do not believe in the sunlight, the sunlight for you does not exist.” – C. JoyBell C.

Unlock

When you acknowledge your dreams and hidden aspirations as significant and worth exploring, you will start to notice the possibilities that begin to emerge all around you. As the doors to a better, happier and more fulfilling life begin to unlock you will come to realize all the possibilities that have existed for you all along. Dreamers succeed because they see past the “what ifs” and the “but only’s” that succeed in keeping so many of us small. They cultivate their beautiful ideas by nurturing them with love and attention, sharing them with others, and by ultimately giving them the room to grow into something beautiful.

This year promise yourself that you are going to dream, that you are going to  believe and that you are going to unlock the life you know you deserve.

 “There is nothing like a dream to create the future.” –Victor Hugo

Where We are is Where we Need to Be

I never realized how blessed I was until I truly started living in the present. It was only when I started functioning from my spirit that I truly began to see the life that I had in front of me. I took notice of the love and affection, the laughter and joy, the beauty of the world around me, and the ambitions and talents that exist in my life. Today my spirit and my heart guide me. Where my head was once the sole captain of my journey, I now permit the voices of my true center to man the ship that will take me where I need to be. Taking inventory of my life has led me to this wonderful discovery. Listening more and second guessing less has enabled the voices of my spirit to emerge and reclaim their power. Their is wisdom from within that is just waiting to be given its proper audience. Will you listen? Will you take notice?
