Personal Freedom Guided Journal

“What we think determines what happens to us, so if we want to change our lives,

we need to stretch our minds.” ~ Wayne Dyer

Do you feel like you are striving but not getting where you want to go?

Are you taking care of everyone around you and not taking care of your business?

Are you just surviving your life?

Are things piling up creating feelings of being overwhelmed, frustrated, and guilt?

 

I felt that way many years ago and found a way to freedom and success.

My truth was my inner person didn’t match my outer person.

I looked like I had it together but inside, everyday was a struggle.

I spent more time and money on my outer self than my inner self until I couldn’t live with my perceived out come . . . so I started learning and now I would like to share with you.

I have created a guided journal (a daily walk) with many of the tools inside that I used to reach freedom and success.

 You may be thinking, you don’t have another minute to spare right now or now may not be the right time for something new.  The truth is 90% of our behavior is a habit. WOW, 90%  

From the time we get up in the morning until the time we fall into bed, there are hundreds of things we do the same way every day. Shower, makeup/shave, eat breakfast, brush your teeth, get the family ready, conversations, cleaning your house, shopping, foods, what you think about, hundreds of the same activities the same every day. Those habits determine how well all the other areas work in your life, from your relationships to your health, to well being, and your income.

We operate on auto pilot going through the motions of actions and auto thoughts. We become locked into unconscious self-defeating behavior that defeat our growth and limit our success, even though we want more from our life. Our habits determine our outcome.

I decided I didn’t like the outcome of my life, so I started new habits.

The first, I realized happiness was my choice. Next, if I wanted to change my results I must change my thinking.  My habit of thoughts was honestly really bad, like the things I said to myself I would never say to my own children.  I started with affirmations, new thoughts, a few everyday over and over.  Did I believe what I was saying, No! but I believed in the concept and had to try it.

Where did I find the time? It was important enough to me so I decided if I wanted change I had to do something about it and I made it a priority.  I had to stand up in my own personal power and not end up like the bag lady I had created in my head. The person I thought I would end up as.  

The next thing I started was writing in a journal.  In the beginning all I wrote was what was happening that day, usually complaining about what was wrong. Makes me laugh now to think about how far I have come. Then I started writing affirmations and my feelings about topics and myself. Then I added things I was grateful for and now most all my journal writing is positive.

Then I added dreams, imaginations, and visuals of what I wanted.

So many wonderful tools that helped me go from a “Bag Lady” mentality to a “Million-Dollar-Amazing” team, making more money than I had ever imagined. My well being, attitude, prosperity, health, and relationships truly have magnified  because of the NEW habits I incorporated into my life. 

Many of the tools I share with you, in a guided journey I call “Personal Freedom,” and developed into a program.  It is a 35-day guided program with daily steps because it takes doing something for at least 30 days in a row to become a new habit. It will require 10-20 minutes a day.

What are you willing to give up to get what you want?

If you decide to take this journey with me, your guide will come to you every day in an email, you will want to set aside time to do the tasks of writing in your journal and incorporating new thoughts into your thinking.

The investment is your time, commitment, and a one time fee of $25.00 without coaching or $65.00 with coaching and/or sharing during your 35 days with an appointment.

Fight or Flight

What DO YOU Want? and What would you be willing to let go of to have more of what you want?

1. Is it necessary that I need to be right?

Would I rather be right, or would I rather be kind? — Wayne Dyer

2. Who or what do I want to control?

By letting it go, it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. When you try & try, the world is beyond winning. — Lao Tzu

3. Whose fault is it? Is it really? Can I let go of blame and take 100% responsibility?

A man can fail many times, but he isn’t a failure until he begins to blame somebody else. — John Burroughs

4. Would I speak to a child like I speak to myself? Am I willing to give up self-defeating self-talk? Or at least begin to change it?

The mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. Used wrongly, however, it becomes very destructive. — Eckhart Tolle

5. Is it necessary to limit myself? Can I give up my limiting beliefs?

A belief is not an idea held by the mind; it is an idea that holds the mind. — Elly Roselle

6. Can I give up complaining?

You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses. — Ziggy

7. Is it necessary to criticize?

Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others. — Christian D. Larsen

8. How do I impress others? How important is that to me?

Don’t try to impress others. Let them have the fun of impressing you. — James R. Fisher, Jr.

9. Am I open to change? Am I willing to give up my resistance to change?

Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls. — Joseph Campbell

10. Am I open to learn more about what I don’t really understand?

The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don’t know anything about. — Wayne Dyer

11. What am I afraid of? Am I willing to give up my fear?

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. — Franklin Delano Roosevelt

12. What are my excuses? How important are they? Can I let them go?

99% of failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses. — George Washington Carver

13. Is the past serving me? Am I willing to give up the past? Am I willing to live in the present?

Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. — Christian D. Larsen

14. Am I willing to become aware of my true self? Am I willing to be my best self?

The world is a mirror and reflects back your expectations. What you get is what you see. You create your own reality. — Denis Waitley

15. How important is it to me to love myself? Am I willing to model what I want in others?

The person in life that you will always be with the most is yourself. Because even when you are with others, you are still with yourself, too! When you wake up in the morning, you are with yourself, laying in bed at night you are with yourself, walking down the street in the sunlight you are with yourself. What kind of person do you want to walk down the street with? What kind of person do you want to wake up in the morning with? What kind of person do you want to see at the end of the day before you fall asleep? Because that person is yourself, and it’s your responsibility to be that person you want to be with. I know I want to spend my life with a person who knows how to let things go, who’s not full of hate, who’s able to smile and be carefree. So that’s who I have to be.C. JoyBell C.

What is the temperature of your business today?

Each day ask yourself a set of questions to measure where you are. Knowing will give you awareness, and power to more in your intended direction.

Keeping a Journal will have great value in that measure over time. It is like taking the temperature of your feelings, your focus and what direction you are going. It could give you clarity on what may be stopping you. It will also help you look back in appreciation of your journey. Two journals would be the best one for business and one for personal.

For now let’s focus on business. Here are a few questions to get you started.

How do I feel about my business today? ( using a scale from 1-10 may be helpful)

What feels Successful?

What one single action could I take for my business today to make me feel just a little better about it?

Wouldn’t it be nice if____________________.

Be easy on yourself; take no more than 5 minutes and move forward.

Asking yourself questions is a powerful habit to embrace; it gives clarity, purpose and sets your GPS for the day. ~Kim Echols
