522 – How To Kick Self-Doubt To The Curb And Move Forward With Confidence

In this episode, I share 15 choices that I attempt to make, every day, that allow me to kick self-doubt to the curb and move forward with confidence.

Choice #1 – I refuse to compare myself to others.

Choice #2 – I will stop worrying about what others think or say about me.

– Affirmation: I refuse to concern myself with how others may judge me and my actions. I have been given divine access to the mind of Christ and Jesus has given me His Spirit to evaluate my own life and actions. (1 Corinthians 2:15-16)

Choice #3 – I will intentionally spend time with the right people.

Choice #4 – I will commit to a healthy diet of optimism

Choice #5 – I will take care of my body

– Getting plenty of sleep.
– Only eating foods that help maintain my desired energy level.
– Physical Activity can change everything!

Choice #6 – I refuse to see any challenge as being any bigger than it truly is.

Choice #7 – I will set a short term, immediate goal, and ACCOMPLISH IT RIGHT NOW!

Choice #8 – I will create an ongoing list of my prior successes

Choice #9 – I will celebrate every win. Big & Small

– Affirmation: Knowing that God is my #1 Fan, I am committed to being my own #2 Fan! I CELEBRATE all my accomplishments BIG and small. I give myself high-fives, I pat myself on the back. I give myself hugs. I dance with joy (If nobody is around). I FREAKING ROCK!

Choice #10 – I will remain focused on my WHY.

My Mission Statement:

My mission, first and foremost, is to pursue the life for which I was created.

I share experiences from my journey in life (my successes, failures, fears, hopes, dreams, etc), and what I am learning from these experiences, in an authentic and transparent way with the intent to provide education, encouragement and inspiration that motivates others to take their own life to the next level.

I am committed to generating the amount of income that allows me to meet the needs and goals of my family and to fulfill my mission in the world. I create content, products and services and promote the content, products and services of others, that add great value to people’s lives.

I am committed to setting new goals, achieving them and then sharing the results so that I may help others find ways of doing the same in their own life. I am constantly expanding my mindset of what is possible and always looking for ways to help others do the same.

I am a follower of Jesus who authentically attempts to live out my faith (though I may fail miserably at times) in a way that encourages others. When asked,I am always prepared to give a reason for the hope that I have in Jesus with gentleness and respect.

521 – How To Cultivate A Healthy Relationship With Money And DRASTICALLY Increase Your Income

You've probably known several people, over the years, that where involved in an unhealthy relationship with someone and was simply unable to see all the warning signs that things needed to change.

Over the years, I've done a lot of one-on-one and group mentoring with people who are full-time self-employed, or who are pursuing self-employment, that are very much involved in an unhealthy relationship that is holding them back from achieving financial success in their business.

I'm not referring to their relationship with another person. Instead, I've notice that most full-time, self-employed, individuals seem to have a very unhealthy relationship with MONEY. All the warning signs are there. However, until they do something to cultivate a healthy relationship with money, they will never be able to generate great wealth.

In this week's episode, I share why I believe that every self employed person can cultivate a healthy relationship with money and DRASTICALLY increase their income by reflecting, daily, on six affirmations related to money.

Affirmation 1
– Money can provide value to everyone if we allow it to FLOW.

Affirmation 2
– I always have plenty of money for all the things I truly want.

Affirmation 3
– God's wealth circulates in my life in avalanches of abundance. All my needs, desires and goals are met instantaneously, for I am one with God and He is EVERYTHING.

Affirmation 4
– I am grateful for all the abundance I have and I invite even more into my life.

Affirmation 5
– I am financially wealthy. However it is not my power or strength that has produced this wealth for me. It is God who has gifted me with the ability to produce wealth. – Deuteronomy 8:17-18 (NIV)

Affirmation 6
– I AM RICH in this present world. However, I will not allow this to make me an arrogant person. I will not put my hope in my financial wealth, which is so uncertain. Instead, I place my hope in God, who RICHLY PROVIDES ME WITH EVERYTHING FOR MY ENJOYMENT. I am committed to do good, to also be rich in good deeds. I am a generous man who is devoted to sharing. – 1 Timothy 6:17-18 (NIV)

In Summary… For the past few years, I've made it a point to read these affirmations (and many many more) on a daily basis. Just recently, I was inspired by my great friend, Kent Julian, to use the REMINDERS APP on my iPhone to have these pop up on a daily basis.

Because of these daily affirmations, I've established a healthier relationship with money. As a result, I found that my income has increased drastically, week by week, month by month and year by year.
