If you believe you are unstoppable…you are unstoppable!

Unleash Your Unstoppable Life!

Visualize yourself getting ready for a race.

This is the race of your life.

Your heart is pumping and your chest is heaving with each breath. As you lower yourself in to the starting block, your legs start to shake with anticipation. Sweat drips from your forehead as you settle into the starting block. You raise your head and begin to focus intently on the finish line. Your mind races as you wait for the starting gun to sound. You visualize each motion, each stride, and each step towards the finish line.

You are prepared.

You are ready.

You are focused.

The gun explodes and wakes you from your inner thoughts and you break out the blocks. Your mind and body are flying down the track towards your goal. With each step, you are gaining speed and gaining ground towards the finish line. You begin to run faster as you…

Where’s Your Focus?…Your Life Depends On It

January 31, 2013

I have recently had the chance to watch and listen to inspirational speaker Tony Robbins. I’ve always admired and respected the work he’s done, and I’ve read several quotes from him, and articles about him. It’s only recently that I’ve actually spent time watching his messages.

In one of his messages I recently watched, Tony presents an experiment on the topic of focus. I will share it with you and you can play along if you like. I’ll share what it means at the end. Ok, here goes…in the room you’re in right now, observe everything that is brown. After a few seconds, close your eyes. Now try to remember all the brown things you observed. It’s not too diffifcult, right? Now, close your eyes again and try to think of all the things in the room that are red. Is it much more difficult to do? Can you come up with many more brown things?

Here’s the point of the experiment. In our lives, we see much more of the things we focus on than those we don’t. When it came time to recalling the objects, why was it much easier to focus on brown objects? Because that’s what you were focused on. You didn’t focus on red, which is why it was difficult to recall those objects.

What we see in our lives has much to do with what we focus on. When you focus on doubt, worry, poverty, and negative circumstances, guess what you’ll see and experience? It is likely to be the negative. Those that focus on faith, gratitude, abundance, and positive outcomes are much more likely to experience them. It is simply a matter of focus.

What are you focused on? Are you envisioning failure or success? Lack or abundance? Strife or peace? The choice is yours. Regardless of your choice, you will see and experience what you are focused on. So why not focus on the positive? Even if you are not yet seeing the results you want, keep your mind focused on the desired outcome. You will eventually receive it. And if you don’t, it means God has something even better in store for you. You can’t lose!

Focus on the ideal result in your mind, live like you already have it, and have the faith that your goal will be reached. It will happen if you believe and your focus is right. Enjoy it!


4 Great Ways To Conquer Procrastination

March 4, 2012

There are many people, including myself, that struggle to avoid procrastination. Each time we put things off we feel guilty and upset with ourselves for not accomplishing the ambitious goals we’ve set.

I recently watched a video from Nelson Berry with an excellent 4 step formula to help avoid procrastination. The 4 steps are:

  1. Determine your best time for getting things done. It’s funny that I’m not a morning person, yet I get most of my best work done early. Find your best time and focus on getting most of your work done at that time.
  2. Don’t over estimate yourself or under estimate the task. Sometimes we disillusion ourselves which frustrates us, causing us to put the task off.
  3. Avoid multi-tasking. When we put all of our focus on one task at a time, we are more likely to get it done, and get it done well.
  4. Get the subconscious to cooperate. When we see success in our minds and repeat positive affirmations to ourselves, our subconscious mind actually guides us to success.

I believe these steps are very helpful in avoiding procrastination and moving closer to acheiving our goals. For more details about these steps, check out the full video here….

Magnified Focus

February 24, 2012

I’ve always had a fascination with items that could do more than they’re supposed to do. For example, what do we use a magnifying glass for? The obvious answer is that we use it to help us see small words on a page, or small features on an object. However, there are other cool things it could do as well.

You may have tried this experiement before…you need a piece of paper and a magnifying glass. When  you take the magnifying glass, focus on one spot of the paper, then let the sun hit that spot…it eventually burns a hole through the paper. Cool stuff!!

Recently someone explained to me how we can use this “cool stuff” to get ourselves fired up, if you will. We all have goals we want to accomplish and dreams we want to realize. However, often times we don’t achieve those goals because we let obstacles get in the way, then we get discouraged and give up.

Based on the above example, think of God as the sun, yourself as the magnifying glass, and the paper as an obstacle. Would you like to burn a hole through that obstacle? Well here’s a great way to do it…Focus!! Instead of keeping your mind focused on the obstacle, keep your mind fully accomplished on the successful accomplishment of your goal. You the magnifying glass maintain your sharp focus on that. You let God be your help and guide. With your focus and God’s help you a burn a hole right through your obstacle. You then stay focused until you complete the goal.

You may believe this is easier said than done. However, when there is sufficient focus and reliance on the sun, the magnifying glass never fails to burn through the paper. Sometimes it takes longer than others, but it still happens. The same is true for us. When we do our part and focus positively on the realization of our goal, and we rely on God’s power, the mission never fails to get accomplished. Sometimes it make take longer than others, but we either receive our desired prize or a better one. It never fails!

My challenge for myself and anyone else is to be the magnifying glass and stay focused on the goal. Then allow God’s light and power to shine on it, and know it’s only a matter of time before great things happen. Keep the same positive focus, and your goals and dreams will be realized. Enjoy the blessings : )


The Power Of a Clear Goal

December 29, 2011

I invite you to listen in on a conversation that occasionally occurs in my home. Usually, my wife is the one who cooks dinner. She has everything in line and doesn’t need to ask questions. There are some occasions where she is not home, and it is up to me to make dinner. The normal routine is me asking my kids, “what do you want to eat”? The normal response…”I don’t know.” This of course makes things difficult for me. I want to please them, but if I don’t know what they are looking for, it is difficult to do. I may need to make several considerations before a decision is made. Even then, it is possible that someone won’t be satisfied.

In the above example, things would be made much easier if one of us would just set a goal, settle on it, and act upon it. If my daughter gave me a direct answer and said she wanted spaghetti, I would make spaghetti without hesitation. Or, if I told them they were having chicken, it would be a done deal and I would make the chicken.

This situation reminds me of the importance of having set goals. I hear it very often. Have a clear idea in your mind about what you want. Keep the thought fixed in your mind, along with a picture of it’s accomplishment. Then take the necessary action.

In the example of my kids’ dinner, time is wasted by the indecision. The kids then get hungrier, and we both become less patient. The same is true for our personal goals. If we are not perfectly clear on what we are trying to accomplish, we procrastinate and become frustrated as time goes by without our goal’s accomplishment. When our goals are clear, the opposite is true. We have direction and we are more likely to take action. And the action we take is more focused and effective, usually resulting in a successful completion of our goal in a shorter amount of time.

It is often said that it’s difficult to shoot when we don’t have a target. When you are looking to accomplish something, determine exactly what you want to accomplish. Set a measurable goal and keep it fixed in your mind. You don’t even have to spend lots of time thinking about how you will accomplish it. If you keep your mind fixed on the final outcome, those ideas will come to you, and then you can act on them effectively.

In conclusion, I strongly recommend you follow this guideline. Take some time to determine exactly what it is you would like to accomplish in the different areas of your life. Stay focused on them and work towards their completion. I believe you will see excellent results. Now please excuse me. Our dinner is ready. Have an excellent day : )


A Great Way To Improve Your Focus

November 15, 2011

As I begin to write this article, I am hearing voices in my head. No, I don’t think I am going crazy (yet). I am hearing the voices of my wife, parents and past teachers. They are all telling me the same thing they always did when they told me something important.

What did they say? I’ll share in a moment. Before I do, I will say that this same advice is very helpful in several ways when it comes to assisting us in reaching our goals. Here’s the advice…write it down!!!

I have seen the importance of writing things down. First, when we write our to-do list down, it helps us know exactly what we need to do. For those like me who often forget, it helps us to remember. However, I have found that it goes beyond this. For some reason there is power in seeing something in writing. For example, it is very helpful to state our affirmations and intentions for the things we want to accomplish. If you want to add some extra power to them, write them down, and then affirm them. It is very effective. There is also power in visualizing our goals being achieved, and feeling the corresponding emotion. Recently, I was challenged to actually provide a written description of this vision and corresponding feeling. I have done it for a few days now, and it definitely adds power to the desire and belief of my goals being realized.

If you are looking to add focus to accomplishing your goals, I recommend you write down your goals, affirmations, visualizations, feelings, and courses of action. It is a powerful and effective way to bring about the desired results much faster. I will share the link below (it’s from the same author in the link I provided in my previous post) which provides an example of writing down our affirmations. I believe writing things down can be great help in getting you to where you want to be. Enjoy the blessings : )
