Failure is Not an Option

happybirthdaymy-lovePreparing the Mind to Win is about understanding that failure is not an option. When you seek your greatest purpose from within the walls of your own soul, realize God has a path created specifically for you. This path is usually not to be walked among the masses but to be taken as a sacred journey to connect you to your greater purpose. So often we walk through the road of life following the paths that others have created before us. Yet how often do we question whether these roads serve our greater good? Normally, as creatures of habit we tend to walk through life with our eyes closed and our soul craving something deeper and more meaningful. However, because we don’t understand where we are traveling, we seek comfort through the world outside of us rather than through our connection to God in prayer.

Following Your Purpose

following-your-purposePreparing the Mind to Win is about understanding your purpose and coming from a place of contribution. We all have the power to create a positive ripple effect in our homes, communities, or in the world around us. Yet we often fail to achieve our greatest potential because we think we need someone else to define for us what that purpose is. Whether you enter a pageant or any perceived competition, realize you have the power within you now to begin creating your ripple effect. As a coach, I continually hear people tell me they intend to do amazing things once they win the contest they have entered. Yet I ask you, what is preventing you from doing these things today?

Who is Your Co-Creator?

untitled-design1Preparing the Mind to Win is about creating the experience of “winning” your goal before you have even manifested it into your reality. As spiritual beings having a physical experience, we are co-creating every moment in our journey. However, who we choose to co-create our lives with will ultimately determine whether we create experiences of love or fear.  I believe we desire to experience the emotions of achieving any goal, which is why our minds work so hard at training our bodies to work harder for it. The emotions of joy, empowerment, and self-love are just a few of the emotions I believe we desire to experience throughout our lives. I don’t necessarily believe it is the prize we want as much as we think we do. It is the experience of creating love in our spirit that pushes us towards striving for greater accomplishments.

Facing Your Fears

fearsPreparing the Mind to Win is about winning the battle against our fears. I believe when we challenge ourselves to achieve any goal, we have at least one major fear attached to that particular goal. Why? Because often new experiences create a certain level of anxiety only because it is a new experience for us. As creatures of habit we become comfortable with creating repetitive behavior and thoughts even though these patterns may not serve our greater good. Even if the experience of the unknown is our fear then we need to identify what may prevent us from wanting to create a new experience for ourselves.

What’s Your Plan of Action?

action-plan

Preparing the Mind to Win is about creating an action plan that provides you a step by step process towards achieving your goal. So often we think about having our new goal and wonder what our lives would look like if we owned it now. Preparing our minds allows us to be fully invested in our goals through thoughts, feelings, and ultimately action. You can no more expect to achieve a goal by just sitting around daydreaming of having it, if you have not created a step by step plan towards achieving it. Thought and emotion will get you so far, but ultimately action is the final ingredient needed to bring that goal into your physical experience.

The Perception of Luck

luck-is-when-preparation-and-opportunity-meetPreparing the Mind to Win is not about luck… it is about practicing your craft until you become a master of it. Whether you are preparing your mind to win a spelling competition or a contest, you have control over situations that may appear to be uncontrollable. To create abundance of anything you want to experience, you must first create the experience from within. You have control over your thoughts, emotions, and actions, so as creative beings you have control over creating the experience for yourself before even stepping out on the competitive arena.

The Reward Lies in the Experience

the-rewardis-inthe-experiencePreparing the Mind to Win is about creating the experience of achieving our goal and experiencing the emotions of joy and excitement once we have achieved it. I believe everything we do has an underlying goal of experiencing the emotions of love and joy. Knowing this, we understand we can create the experience of winning our competition, or driving our new car even before the evidence of this is seen in our lives. By creating your intentions through thought, emotions, and actions, you can create a “win” or achievement of any kind repeatedly in your life before you realize the manifestation of it. We need to be clear on the experience we wish to create so we can deliberately create those experiences that will align us with our goals.

Happy Body = Happy Life

happy-bodyHow many of you have included diet and exercise in your New Year’s goals? I will be the first to say that one of my 2017 goals is to have a stronger body and intake a healthier diet. I don’t eat unhealthy at all, but there is also room for improvement in my life to take control so I feel better in my own skin. If we are not being motivated by swimsuit season slowly approaching, then some of you are preparing for a competition that involves being judged to a degree, by the appearance of your body. When you prepare your mind to win through the achievement of a new goal or resolution, you are accepting there is room for improvement. We do not need a group of judges in a pageant or a group of strangers on a beach telling us whether or not our body is acceptable to them. However, if you enter a pageant where fitness is judged through swimsuit or fitness wear, then you in essence are asking for the approval of those judges.
