Our thoughts, those things that we think about on a day-to-day basis, have a huge effect on the results that show up in our lives. They actually say that 90% of our thoughts each day are the same thoughts as the day before.
So what do you think about?
Thoughts trigger our emotions. Emotions are very powerful, and our decisions are made based on our emotions. That means that our emotions determine the choices that we make, which in turn leads to the actions we take.

The Law of Diminishing Intent states that the longer you put off doing something, the less likely you are to do it.
This is the difference between people who get what they want and the people who don’t.
People who get what they want are the action takers. They decide what they want and they take action towards getting it - immediate action.

I’ve been helping a friend pack up her grandmother’s stuff. She wasn’t a hoarder, but she still ended up with a house full of largely worthless stuff for my friend to get rid of.
It made me ponder on what I keep and what I get rid of. When we keep something that we haven’t used for five years, why are we doing that? Is it because we are scared to get rid of it, we think we might need it one day, it was a gift?

For many of us, we have a goal that we desire in life but there is something in the background working against us in achieving that goal. This is known as a self-limiting belief.
The Top 10 self-limiting beliefs are:
I’m too old.
I’m not smart enough.
I’m not educated enough.
I’m afraid of trying and failing.
You have to have money to make money.
I’ve already tried everything.
It’s selfish of me to want more.
I don’t feel that I really deserve it.
I don’t have the willpower.
All the good ones are taken.

This week’s video discusses what you can learn from those around you.
I recently read that there are lessons for all of us from the people that are around us. So I started to look and see what lessons I could learn from the people around me. It was amazing! Some of the things I learned include:
I learnt how to laugh more at myself
I learnt how to show more love to others
I learnt how my harsh words can affect people
I learnt to see the good in people because they do mean well it may just not seem that way
I learnt to keep in contact more
I learnt the importance of kind words to myself
I learnt that there are infinite possibilities available to me
I learnt that life is full of continual learning
Action: See what you can learn from those around you.

For the past few years with my business, I have been pushing myself and loving every moment of it. I still love it, but this year I am slowing down just a little. While reflecting on what is important in my life, I realised that just being still can make a difference.
It was funny, but I was getting messages from a few different people around me. My daughter was one, my business accountability buddy was another and a few other people.
I am still achieving, but I think in my ability to be slow, I am finding that I am more aware of what is really important. I am combining many elements too and making sure that I am doing things that I love.
Action: Take time to think about whether you need to slow down.
