How to Make a Plan for Success

I heard a great quote today, and it inspired me to talk about how to make a plan for success! The quote goes said “If you don’t know where you’re going, you’re going to land up somewhere else”. That’s by good old Yogi Berra!!

It really go me to thinking about plans and directions and maps, then I remembered HEY! I have one that I got earlier this year, so I’m going to share it with you! So, watch the video, then I’ll share with you my juicy tidbit of a map!!

So, here is a link to the GREAT mind map I’ve been using for the last several months. It’s from an AMAZING woman entrepreneur named Jeanna Gabellini and she has some amazing trainings available on planning for and achieving success! She was truly a God-send to me earlier this year, when I first learned about her.

Anyway, download this mind map, this visual tool, and USE IT! [tweetherder text=”Put in your goals follow the path and just SEE what’s at the end”]Put in your goals, follow the path and just SEE what’s at the end![/tweetherder] Your path to success in ALL areas of life just might be a whole lot easier than you’ve been thinking [and struggling with] all these years!

I hope you DO make a plan for your own success! I’d like NOTHING MORE than to see you happy, abundant and prosperous in EVERY area of your life!!

Shoot me a message over on Facebook or in the comments below and let me know if you filled in the map for yourself! Where are YOU going?! xo

Circles of Life

Circles of Life …

I am sitting at an outdoor concert
feeling, knowing, I had been there before
it was more than déjà vu
I HAD been there before

18 years earlier
in a similar spot of grass
listening to a similar band
feeling very similar feelings
going through similar shit

it caused me to think that life is possibly
just a series of big, unending circles
we’ve been there before
we know how it turns out
we go round and round
why do we allow ourselves to get here again?

the beautiful, even miraculous, thing about this go-round
for me
is that I realized
I have learned
I know what to do to NOT get here
to not go around in this particular circle
ever again

I first, have to choose
choose not to do the things I have done before
choose to change the channels
in my gut, in my thoughts, in my beliefs

changing those images changes your outcome
changing your outcome changes your circle
the circle you did not want to go round in again
stops
you are free to design your life
exactly how you want it to be

squiggly line

More and more frequently I’ve been inspired to write. This thought of the circles of life just came to me, and I wanted to share it with you; my friends, fans and followers. You are so important to me even though I don’t always know your name or can see your face; I know you are there. I know you struggle too, and have difficulties in life. That’s why I’m here. To try to inspire you to make a change. A change for the better, a change forever … to inspire you to take action towards that change!

Change Your Thoughts and your Circles of Life will Change

How to Know When the Time is Right

How to know when the time is right, because timing really IS everything!  That’s so cliché, isn’t it?  But, it’s SO true!!

Have you ever wondered about the timing of things, especially AFTER the fact?  I know I have in the past, but now, more and more as I begin my #journeyto50 I think about things before hand as my intuition has really kicked up a notch, or ten!!

I’ve got a funny story to share with you about timing and how to know when the time is right … enjoy!

Now, I can just hear you … “Lorri, it’s JUST a kitty cat!”.  True, just a cat … BUT, the fact is, I was not [still am not] ready!!  So many times in my life I’ve jumped into the deep end, not know, not prepared, and there have been several times that I really WISH I would have thought things out a little better first, prepared, listened to my intuition!!  This time, I listened!

[tweetherder text=”sometimes in life, no matter how much we think we want something or how much we believe it’s meant to happen we’re not ready for it”] Sometimes in life, no matter how much we think we want something or how much we believe it’s meant to happen we’re not ready for it[/tweetherder].  We haven’t made room for it in our hearts or in our minds or physically in our homes to have that THING, whatever it is, move in and join us in our life.  That’s a really important lesson to learn because yes, there is something to be said about being spontaneous and going after what it is that you want but you have to still be prepared.

Have you ever had a time when you just KNEW the time wasn’t right? I’d love to hear your stories either in the comments below, or feel free to share over on Facebook!

Unglamorous Yet Profound

I wish these were my words, because they are just so JUICY!! Unglamorous yet profound [spoken by my new friend Joui] instantly clicked with me! Doesn’t that just make you mentally salivate? 😀 I attended, for the very first time, an extremely intense yet FABULOUS mastermind group meeting on Tuesday and oh my GOSH was it amazing!!

I’m going to share some of the lessons I learned and am putting into action from it in some upcoming blogs, but want to share this video first on the whole unglamorous yet profound statement …

Don’t you just love it? I mean, [tweetherder text=”unglamorous=hard work, tenacity, confidence, drive and profound=achievement, I DID IT, pride”]what better way to describe the journey … unglamorous = hard work, tenacity, confidence, drive, passion and profound = achievement, conquering, I DID IT, pride[/tweetherder]. These are my thoughts anyway.

What are your thoughts of your own journey to success? Are you there yet? Have you achieved all you want to achieve? Is your method of getting there something to be proud of?

We ALL have a journey to fulfill … whether it be entrepreneurial or not. Life is life, life is what you make it, life IS a journey! What will YOU say when you reach your destination?

Life Lessons from a Tight Rope Walker

I just ran across something this morning that has really moved me into deeper and more awesome thoughts 😉 (those are the best kind, aren’t they?) … tight rope walker Nik Wallenda walked on a tight rope across the Grand Canyon last night, and although I did not see it live I have found some footage from an interview with him from just prior to this grand (oops, pardon the pun) event!

Nik Wallenda, known as “The King of the High Wire,” had some of these juicy (life lesson) tidbits to say about the life of being a tight rope walker.

Nik quoted his great-grandfather as saying: “life is on the wire and everything else is just waiting”. I like this idea … truly living in the moment, not allowing yourself to get carried away by the ups and downs of life’s journey.

Here’s a few more; “we don’t wear safety’s, we just don’t do that”; “it gives a false sense of security”; “if you rely on the tether, chances are you will fall”.

There’s definitely truth to this … focusing on ANYTHING brings it about. Life lesson: focusing on the safety straps and the nets and the harnesses of life will most certainly cause you to stumble, fall or even perish (in a manner of speaking).

One last morsel that really stayed on my pallet; [tweetherder text=”maintain the respect or else you can become complacent, and that is a very dangerous place to be”]”maintain the respect or else you can become complacent, and that is a very dangerous place to be”[/tweetherder]. I love this because I’ve always tried to live a very passionate life, doing things I love, not really caring what others think (although, I’m not going to lie, that one still is a challenge from time to time), expressing myself, showing emotion. Complacency and mediocrity are my biggest enemies, and the MOMENT I feel them creeping into my world I do something about them; I take out the fly-swatter of life and give them a solid wack across the chin!

wack across the chin

All that being said, why not listen in for yourself:
