I’ve got a really exciting sort of mini CCQ here for you called Brain Gym. So we have this idea that in order to train our body if we want to get stronger or build muscle or lose weight, we need to go to the gym, we need to train our body. Now the gym can be a variety of things, a park outside that you do walks or runs in, a membership facility gym or a personal trainer. Even if you’re creating a healthy body, your gym could be your kitchen where you’re working to eat healthier food! Now, if we haven’t done a lot of exercise, spent a lot of time training our body, building our muscles, moving around to get our heart nice and healthy or eating a healthier diet that gives us energy, then we’ve probably created the opposite of a healthy body! Maybe we’ve done that by sitting around, not moving our body enough, eating a lot of junk food, not getting enough rest.
You get where I’m going here?
The idea to change that, to create a body that’s healthier, to create a body that can move more, that can stay flexible as it ages and gets older, we need to train it. Tt’s really easy for everyone to understand that when it comes to the body and what’s encouraging is the concept is the exact same for the mind, for mindset! In order to create anything, you want in life, your mindset needs to be in alignment with that creation goal, meaning you need to have thoughts, beliefs, attitudes that are in line with what you want to create. If you have a money story that you want to transform, one from lack to abundance but you’re constantly think thoughts like “There’s never enough” and “This is too hard” and “I’m not going to get there” and “I can’t do this” then that’s exactly what you’re going to see because in your mind, that’s what you’re training your brain to create to see.
So to get started training your mind to create what you actually want, use the idea I call ‘brain gym’ and the ‘weights’ you use to train your brain at this gym are, daily practice that includes, affirmations, visualizations, listening to positive things on Youtube that you like, spending time in meditation, doing a yoga class that you enjoy, whatever it is that helps train your brain to think thoughts that are in alignment with what you want! Brain Gym, takes old habits, all the thoughts that weren’t serving you and it breaks them up and it builds a new way, these new mind mussels that actually start to take place, take root and we begin to think like that more habitually and in a more positive way that’s in alignment with what we want.
So take this idea for this CCQ and just ponder it for a bit. Is changing the habits that I have now in my mind, meaning the way that I look at things or think of things or believe things, is it really any different than taking my body, in it’s current state and training it to be different? And the answer is “No.” So now what you need to do is figure out what ‘weights’ or tools you’re going to use to train your brain to look at things more in alignment with what you want to create. Positive affirmations, journalism, writing out exactly what you would love to have in your life, visualizing it, listening to positive Youtubes and podcasts, those are some of the examples of the ‘weights’ that you can use to train in your brain gym.
I hope you found this fun, I hope you enjoyed it and I’d love to hear from you. Hit me up, I’m at the Creation Corner in Facebook and of course you can always post a comment below. Take care and happy creating!
The word manifesting is everywhere and I think it would be tough to find someone who hasn’t heard of Law of Attraction (even if they aren’t quite sure what it is).
As a Creation Coach I work with clients to help them create what they really desire in their life, be it health, wealth, happiness, peace, a partner, you name it. And time and time again I see the same belief my clients tend to share….the belief that they ‘can’t manifest’.
It’s not that strange that the majority of my clients feel this way about themselves, after all they have hired a creation coach to help them. If they believed they could manifest then they wouldn’t need me. But here’s the thing I tell them (and they don’t always like it at first) ‘You are always manifesting and creating the life you see’.
And their initial response goes something like this….
‘Say what?!! You mean I AM doing this to myself? No way, uh-huh, not me it’s (insert person, thing, situation here) THAT’S the problem.’
You see people hear the word manifesting…a lot. And it brings up images of lush lifestyles, never ending romance, an abundance of cash, fame, fortune etc. But yet many people are still struggling to find meaning, peace, happiness and abundance. And I am talking earnest, dedicated; good people….who think the ‘bad stuff’ is happening (like I said) TO them. And spend a lot of time longing for something (insert the desire here).
So what gives? What’s the one thing most needed in this situation to really turn your life around and start creating what you WANT to see?
Radical Responsibility means taking full ownership of the life you have already manifested for yourself, meaning the life you see now. Think about it for a minute, what’s the one consistent factor in the life you experience? It’s you! You are the only one in your life, 100% of the time. This also means you are the only one participating 100% in the creation of your life. And since you are the designer of your life, why not chose to design something fabulous?
Here’s how to get started:
- Take ownership of where you are currently at in your life regardless of the situation. Participate in Radical Responsibility!
- Begin to accept that you are constantly manifesting every moment, of every day. Your thoughts dictate the outcome of your experiences.
- Be willing to choose to start manifesting what you want instead of what you don’t want.
- Decide what it is you want to manifest in your life.
- And again participate in Radical Responsibility to create these positive desires!
- Intentionally creating what you do want, by consciously choosing thoughts, actions, books, media etc that are in alignment with what it is you are creating.
- Surround yourself with more of what you do want to build the momentum away from what you don’t.
By accepting full responsibility of creating the life you see, you step into your power zone. You evolve from being the victim of circumstances to the master creator of your own life. It means that ultimately you ARE free to design, create and manifest the life you want.
And it doesn’t get any better than that.
In this week’s CCQ I share why you need to have Habits!
Hey there creators, this is Jennifer Scott with another Creation Coaching Quickie helping you create the life and business that you love.
So today I’m really excited to talk to you all about creating awesome habits. Now, why would I want to talk about creating habits? Habits sound kind of boring and not very exciting or fun. But habits; creating really solid, consistent habits is one of the most important things you need to do to create what you want.
And the reason that this is on the top of my mind is because I recently completed one of my own creation goals. At the start 2016 I set out to create my most healthy, fit, sexy body ever. And I knew in order to make this happen I had to really commit to a program or something that was going to challenge me and push me to create exactly what I wanted.
So I signed up for this great program called From Pushups to Pinups a 90 day action pack, intensive fitness program!
Now, the idea itself, sure that sounded great but to actually make it happen meant that I needed to commit to some daily habits. I had to change my eating plan. I had to get rid of all yucky food, processed food, junk food, eat a really clean, healthy diet and I had to create the habit of doing some cardio and getting my heart rate up 5x/week! And I also had to commit to going to the gym and work with my personal trainer 4x/week!
So these were some pretty big habits I had to commit to, right? And here’s what happened. It wasn’t always easy, it wasn’t always what I wanted to do. Sometimes I didn’t want to always eat that clean meal. Sometimes I didn’t want to do my cardio, sometimes I didn’t want to go to the gym. But my desire for what I wanted to create, a fit, healthy, sexy body was stronger. And my resolve to see it through was stronger than my desire to do a cheat day or to fall of the wagon. But if I didn’t have the structure and the habits to know exactly what I needed to do each day I wouldn’t have made it through the 3 months.
So if you’re working to create something in your life, what are the daily habits and actions you need to put in place so as each day goes by it is adding up, think of a snowball down a hill. Each snowflake, it’s adding up, adding up, adding up, adding up. And eventually it’s big enough that you see this gigantic snowball or you see the thing that you most want to have.
And for me it worked. I had the photo shoot the other day and I felt great, my body was exactly what I had pictured that being and it was a lot to do with my commitment to following through the daily habits that that were set up for me. Eating right, working out and showing up to my gym.
So if you’re working to create something and you feel like you’ve been working at it for a long time and it just keeps alluding you, it’s not quite there, I’d like you to think about what are the actions that you’re taking daily to help that creation goal become a reality.
For example if you’re working to create money in your business, are you doing those daily actions, the daily habits like being visible online or connecting with your potential customers or reaching out to people to network with? Are you doing that consistently?
If you’re working to create a solid mindset and feel good about yourself, are you doing your reading every day? Are you reading up your affirmations? Are you doing your visualizations?
If you’re working on getting healthier and creating a sexy, healthy body, are you committed to eating well and nourishing your body, to moving your body and getting some exercise?
So what are the habits that you are committing to on your way to your creation goal? I hope this helps you. Reach out if you want to talk or if you have any questions. Take care and I’ll speak to you soon.
This week’s CCQ is all about using the power of your imagination to create what you want!
Listen to the audio or read the transcribed version below.
Hey creators, this is Jennifer Scott here with another creation coaching quickie working to
help you create what you most desire in your life!
Today’s topic is all about the inside job of creating. So visualization, picturing what you want,
and really getting in touch with exactly what it is that you desire to create in your life. So I
want to tell you something that’s become so top of the mind for me in 2016 and it is this idea
of visualization. But even more so, it’s the idea of thoughts become things.
A while back I did a creation coaching quickie around the idea that thoughts become things so
when you spend a lot of time thinking about what you don’t have, then the thing you see in
your life is the not having. And I know that sounds maybe a little bit confusing but stick with
We need to get more serious. And I don’t mean serious in a hard, controlled kind of way.
I mean serious in a committed and consistent way that what we think becomes the thing that
we experience. And if that’s true, and we’re going to assume that it is, then spending time inside
of our imagination needs to become one of the most important things we do in our day and in
our life. As important as drinking water. If you want to create that successful business, or
more money in your bank account, or happiness or more connection to the community around
you, or a great, loving relationship, you need to spend some time picturing that happening
every single day. Because those thoughts, the thoughts of having it, the picturing of having it
is what will become the thing that you experience; the loving relationship, the abundant bank
account, the great business.
When we spend a lot of time thinking about all the things we don’t have, what do we end up
experiencing in our life? We experience the thing of not having. Our bank account’s low,
we’re high in debt, we can’t seem to find that great relationship, we don’t feel inside
connections to ourselves, to other people because we’re thinking all the time that we don’t
So thoughts become things. In order to create what you want, in order to get that burning
desire and have it experienced in your life, set up a practice where you visualize exactly what
you want every single day.
Now here’s the tip. It doesn’t need to be long, it doesn’t need to be forced, it doesn’t need to
be super drawn out. Just close your eyes. Do it right now. Close your eyes, take a deep breath
in, exhale and just lightly start to picture what it is that you want. Trust the images that come
to you. Maybe you see a smile on your partner’s face because you got lots of money that
month. Maybe you see yourself helping a client and really feeling fulfilled. Maybe you see
yourself going on a fantastic, romantic date. Maybe you see signing on to your on line banking
and seeing a great balance.
Just stay there for a moment. Picture what you most desire. And then once you feel it, say yes,
this. This is what I want. And blow it out. Send it off. And do that every day. And with the
intention and the resolve that this is part of you creating what you want. Because the first step
of creation is the thought. Then the thought becomes the thing.
I hope this serves you well. Enjoy your creation job on the inside. Take care and I’ll speak to
