By June 4, 1940, Nazi Germany had already rolled over Poland, Belgium, France and much of Europe and was now setting its eyes on England. The British had just completed the evacuation of its Allied troops from Dunkirk, France, and its people were frightened, anticipating a German invasion at any moment.
Prime Minister Winston Churchill, seeking to reassure his people, went to the House of Commons and stood before the packed chamber to make a nationally-broadcast address.
“Even though large tracts of Europe and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Gestapo and all the odious apparatus of Nazi rule, we shall not flag or fail,” told his rapt audience. “We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France. We shall fight on the seas and oceans. We shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air. We shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches. We shall fight on the landing grounds. We shall fight in the fields and in the streets. We shall fight in the hills. We shall never surrender!”
England, with the help of the Allies, went on to defeat the seemingly unstoppable German war machine and saved the world from Nazi domination. As Churchill proved, with the right attitude, anything is possible. You can even change the world.
Whether your goal is to further your career, succeed in love and romance, become a sports champion, gain fame and notoriety, lose weight, quit smoking or drinking or any other personal ambition, staying motivated and keeping your attention focused on your ultimate aspiration is critical. Becoming distracted or letting failure derail your plans will never let you get what you want.
The only way to win is to keep on trying. As basketball superstar Michael Jordan put it, “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
In this article, you will find 70 tips to keep you on track so that you can continue to strive to achieve your dream despite any setback, any failure, any distraction, and any mistake. In the words of American industrialist Henry Ford, “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.”
1. Worst Case Scenario – At the start of the day, think about the absolute worst thing that could happen. How likely is it that things would get so bad? Probably not very. Remind yourself that even if the worst occurs, you have what it takes to overcome any situation, no matter how terrible.
2. It’s the Journey, Not the Destination – Living in the moment is the best source of motivation you will ever find. Enjoy the day to day experience of living your life, both when things are going well and when you are dealing with problems. It will give you a better appreciation of who you are and what you can contribute to the world around you.
3. Power Up! – Success requires a lot of energy. To get what you want, you’ll need the physical strength to achieve it. Take care of your body, exercise regularly, eat right and eliminate processed foods, fast foods and other toxins from your environment. This will strengthen your body, your mind and also your will, and give you the endurance you need to do whatever you want to accomplish. When you feel better, you’ll be better!
4. Today Is All You Can Influence – Accomplishing long term goals is a moment by moment activity. You can’t change what has happened in the past, but you can influence what will happen in the future by focusing on achieving the goals you set for yourself each day. Do the very best you can with what you have to work with right now. If you do, the future will take care of itself.
5. Be Inspired Passion — People who don’t care, don’t succeed. Passion is one part emotion and one part commitment. If you have committed but no passion, your work will be dull. If you have passion, but no commitment, your work will be undirected. But when the two come together and you bring real passion to what you do each day, there can be no stopping you.
6. Create a Motivational Environment – Your workplace needs to inspire you, whether it’s an office, a playing field, or wherever you are going to spend the biggest part of your day. Make it a place that you will want to look forward to going. Make sure it’s always neat, organised and trash- and clutter-free. Personalise your space with family photos that make you smile or a small plant. Include motivational triggers that will remind you of your goals and dreams and inspire you to keep striving to achieve them.
7. Your Word Is Your Bond – Living up to the promises you make, both big and small, is what defines you in the eyes of other people. Always stand by your words and take what you promise others with the utmost seriousness. This will improve your personal and professional reputation and also motivate you to get things done. By locking yourself into living up to your verbal commitments, you can create the inspiration you need to live up to the biggest promises you make to yourself: Achieving your ultimate goals.
8. Share Your Knowledge with Others – When you share what you know with others, you will create new confidence in yourself, especially when you see other people achieve their goals with your help. When we help other people, it also can create clarity in your own mind about where your true talents lie and what you are capable of achieving.
9. Nurture Positive Habits – About 80 % of the things we do each day are habitual, meaning we do them without thinking about them. Developing good habits and breaking bad habits will allow you to spend more than half your time working toward your goals on autopilot. Make a list of the successful habits that you need to develop, then train yourself to start performing them daily until they become second nature.
10. Jump Out of Bed – Begin your day with a flourish and that intensity can follow you the rest of your day. Give yourself a great reason to get out of bed every morning, then attack the day with a high level of passion and intensity. Every day holds at least one exciting thing. Ask yourself, “What will today’s be?”
11. Use Measurable Objectives – You can accomplish any goal by breaking it down into a series of smaller steps. Set a long-term goal for yourself, then create milestones to measure how close you are getting to achieving it each day, week and month. Mark your milestones down on a calendar and hang it somewhere that you will see it each day. Celebrate victories and course-correct when you fall behind your objectives.
12. The Power of In-TEN-sity – You can do anything for 10 minutes, right? Whenever you are feeling tired, beaten or worn out, or are facing an unpleasant task, commit to working intensely for just another ten minutes. Usually, by the time the ten minutes are up, you will have found a new solution or something else to inspire you to keep going. Pushing yourself to get started can give you the momentum to push past obstacles.
13. A Mighty Oak Comes from a Tiny Acorn – Remind yourself that the small tasks you perform each day are leading toward your ultimate objective. Focus not just on what you are doing, but why you are doing it. What will be the long-term result of the thousands of tiny short-term tasks you perform each day? You can motivate yourself during the “small stuff” by thinking about how they will shape you as a person.
14. Be Grateful – Say “thank you” more often than you do now. People appreciate it when you appreciate them. Being grateful creates humility, and humility leads to grace, which is a fullness of the heart. By practising gratitude until it becomes second nature, the list of things in your life that you are grateful for will grow larger each day. Gratitude is also the opposite of complaining. So being positively grateful, you can avoid the negativity of complaining.
15. Use Web Research to Make Yourself Better – One of the greatest things about living in the 21st Century is that you have access to virtually unlimited resources right at your fingertips via the Internet. During free moments, go online to look for motivational blogs, forums, articles and other resources you can use to get tips on living a happier, more productive life. Bookmark the places you like best so you can return to them whenever you need inspiration.
16. Prep for Success – Whenever there’s a big job ahead of you, get ready by doing all the advance work you can ahead of time. Gather the tools and resources you will need and set them into place so they are ready when you need them. The very act of preparing can reduce the anxiety of being unprepared. Plus, you will be able to dive right in and get started without stalling when it’s time to get the job done.
17. Clarify Your Thoughts by Giving a Speech – It often helps to work through a problem by pretending to give a speech on the subject. This requires you to frame the problem in a recognisable structure: Outline what the problem is, what’s causing it, what are the possible solutions, and which solution you recommend. Not only will it help you find ways to work through problems, but you will already be prepared whenever somebody asks your opinion on the subject.
18. Make It Easy to See Your Goals – If your goals are hidden under a pile of papers or stuffed into a drawer, it will be harder for you to stay focused on them. Make your targets highly visible: Print up colourful signs or write them on Post-Its and leave them around your workplace, car and home. Set up your Outlook to send you daily reminders to keep you focused. Do whatever you can to keep your goals in the forefront of your attention.
19. Don’t Forget to Relax – Nobody can succeed if they are stressed out and anxious all the time. Take an occasional “breather” by using deep breathing techniques to relax your mind and body.
Inhale deeply and slowly through your nose, then exhale slowly through your mouth, pushing all the air out of your lungs. Repeat this three times and the additional oxygen it pushes into your bloodstream will help you relax and achieve mental clarity.
20. Keep Your Gas Tank Full – What happens if you drive around all day without ever stopping for gas? In the same way, you eventually will run out of fuel if you don’t give yourself the revitalisation you need to keep going. Schedule breaks at regular intervals to have a leisurely cup of tea or coffee, take a brisk walk outside, or call or text a friend to check in on how they are doing. You will return to your work refreshed and re-energised.
21. Optimise Your Working Environment – A great working environment is defined by three things: It’s a place where you can be proud of what you do; It’s a place where you enjoy who you work with, And it’s a place where you trust the people you work for. If any of these three elements are missing from your work, it’s going to be harder for you to achieve your goals and it may be time to consider making a change.
22. Fake It ‘Til You Make It – If you don’t always feel motivated, act as if you are motivated and you can create the desired feeling. Once you’ve gotten the ball rolling, you will find yourself genuinely engaged in your work.
23. Be a Doer Not a Thinker – It’s easy to overthink a problem and lose your momentum or inertia. This process sometimes referred to as “paralysis by analysis”, can be dangerous because it can sidetrack you from your objectives. Be a person of action and don’t be afraid to make decisions. Mistakes are going to be made, but you can learn from these mistakes so that you can do a better job next time. The only way not to succeed is to not act. Indecision leads to a disaster every time.
24. Enter into a Contract with Yourself – A contract is a legally binding document that sets a defined set of requirements on both parties. Enter into a contract with yourself that requires you to achieve your objectives within a set period of time. Write an actual contract, sign it, date it and put it somewhere safe. The knowledge that such a binding contract exists can help keep you motivated toward achieving your goals.
25. When You Get Stuck, Aim for Small Victories – You can keep your forward momentum going even when you get stuck on a problem by targeting tiny triumphs. Accomplishing quick, easy goals generates positive feelings that you can use to keep you moving past obstacles and toward your ultimate objective. You will be inspired to keep repeating that satisfying experience of crossing yet another task off your list.
26. Rewards Matter – Psychology tells us that humans respond most productively when there is the promise of a reward at the end of a given task. Create rewards for yourself for achieving your short- term objectives. They don’t have to be grand, expensive prizes. Find affordable, healthy rewards that you will appreciate. When you know there is a tangible reward at the end of your day, it’s often enough to keep you going even when you don’t want to.
27. Visualise the Payoff – Visualisation exercises help create the proper mindset for success. Take the time to focus on what your life will be like once you achieve your objective. How will you feel? What will other people think about you? Will there be physical, emotional and psychological rewards for reaching your goal? Put yourself in that picture and it can keep you inspired as you work toward achieving your ultimate objective.
28. De-Complicate Complicated Tasks – If there is a particularly complicated task lying ahead of you, it can seem overwhelming and unachievable. But if you break that task into a series of simple, uncomplicated steps, you can remove the stress and focus on achieving only the next simple task in front of you. As you move through each simple task, it will motivate you to keep going.
29. Use Positive Self-Reinforcement – Have you ever noticed that an employee or co-worker will work harder after they’ve been recognised them for doing a good job with a pat on the back or some sort of public recognition. Use that same type of positive reinforcement to motivate yourself. Recognise when you’ve done something extraordinary and take pride in your work. It will make you more likely to work even harder next time.
30. Acknowledge Negative Feelings, But Don’t Hold On to Them – It’s not healthy to suppress negative thoughts or let bad feeling bottle up inside you. When you are having negative thoughts or feelings, it’s okay to acknowledge them. But it’s also necessary to release them. You will accept a negative feeling if you ignore it or let it keep eating away at you. Recognise them for what they are, give yourself a few minutes to let yourself experience them, then move on.
31. Use Checklists – Checklists are useful in keeping yourself on task and not skipping or missing any steps. Before you being a task, break it down into a series of steps and then use those steps as the basis for your checklist. As you move through the task, put a check mark next to the steps you’ve accomplished and move on to the next task on your list. This will help you move through the job smoothly and efficiently.
32. Pay Attention to Opportunities – There are always two ways of looking at things: Something can be either an obligation or an opportunity. Problems can be either setbacks or learning experiences. Instead of thinking, “It’s my job to do …”, approach tasks with the mindset of “This is an opportunity for me to …” That way you will do things because you want to, not because you feel you have to.
33. Clarify Your True Desires – What is it you truly want? Clarifying your real objectives makes it easier for you to achieve them because you don’t waste time chasing secondary or tertiary objectives. If you aren’t sure what you want, answer this question:
“If you never had to worry about earning money for the rest of your life, what would you do with your life?” The answer is your true desire.
34. Create Energy Flow in Your Body – You can’t have mental, emotional and physical energy if you are sedentary all the time. Make it a point to stand up and move around frequently. Keep your heart pumping, your muscles loose and your mind sharp by standing, stretching, walking and moving. It’s the best way to keep energised, even better than a cup of coffee or a power drink. Plus, it will help you sleep better at night.
35. Surround Yourself With People Who Share Your Passions– Enthusiasm is contagious, so when you are around people who are passionate about the same things you are, it’s easier to remain motivated toward achieving your goals. Don’t waste time with naysayers or negative people. Seek out friends, co-workers and acquaintances who share your goals and interests and who will be supportive of your efforts to achieve them.
36. Seek Out the Answers to Secrets – Success leaves clues. Follow these clues to learn the secrets successful people have used to stay motivated. Ask questions. Seek out advice. In most cases, successful people will be more than happy to share what they know with you and are generous with their wisdom.
37. Procrastination Is Your Enemy – In the groundbreaking motivational guide “Success through a Positive Mental Attitude”, Napoleon Hill famously interjected “Do it now!” as a rallying cry for successful people. Never delay or procrastinate or your opportunities may be lost. Your time is the one thing you can never get back. Treat your time like it’s a valuable commodity.
38. “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” – Obnoxious as it was, that song from the 1980s carried a powerful message. Happiness is something you choose, not something that happens to you. When you are enjoying your life and your work, you will approach challenges with vigour rather than with dread. You will be energised to succeed, and all it takes is making up your mind to be happy.
39. Don’t Keep Your Goals to Yourself – Open up to other people about what it is you want to accomplish. This creates a support system that you can rely upon for encouragement when you need it. It’s also harder to go back on the promises you make to yourself when you know other people are expecting you to keep them.
40. Focus on Positivity and Tune Out Negativity – It’s always easier to find excuses or reasons something won’t work, but that kind of thinking never created anything great. It’s okay to acknowledge flaws, but don’t let them be your sole focus. Instead, keep a positive attitude and truly believe that you can overcome any obstacle, achieve anything you truly desire and become the person you were meant to be.
41. Continually Challenge Yourself – When you reach plateaus, bust through them by continually challenging yourself to do more and to work harder. Don’t rest on earlier successes. Discover what you can do to take it to the next level so you can reach your ultimate objective more quickly.
42. Prepare Yourself for the Day that Lies Ahead of You – Rather than diving into the deep end, ease yourself into your day by thinking about what lies ahead, analysing the challenges you can face, and visualising how you can succeed. In the same way that stretching helps prevent injuries when exercising, preparing mentally for your workday can increase your productivity, prevent you from being stressed, and ultimately help you progress toward your goals.
43. Use FIDO – The US Marines have a saying that goes, “Forget It and Drive On”. When you make a mistake or encounter something negative, don’t get caught up on it or dwell on it too long. Wallowing in the past won’t help make your future better, it will only delay you and make you more negative. If mistakes were made, pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and start all over again.
44. Don’t Let Negative People Affect You – Not everybody is going to be as motivated as you. Every day, you will encounter people who have a negative attitude toward life. Don’t let them get to you. You may not be able to change the way they think, but you can change the way you think about them. Share your dreams and ambitions with people who will appreciate them. Don’t waste your time with those who aren’t going to support you.
45. Treat Every Day as if It’s Your First Day – Remember the enthusiasm and curiosity you brought to the first day of school or the first day of a new job? Sustain that type of interest and ambition every day and you will continually strive to succeed and impress other people. This is especially helpful when you are facing an unpleasant task. Act as if you are auditioning for your current position and you will find that you will be giving it your best effort.
46. View Mistakes as “Teaching Moments” – Everybody makes mistakes. But not everybody learns from them. When you mess up, think about what you did wrong and promise yourself that you will do better next time. Set a time limit for analysing your mistake – a few minutes or so – then move on and never dwell on it again.
47. Immune Yourself Against “Destination Disease” – Destination disease is another term for complacency. For some people, when they achieve their goal they become comfortable. This prevents them from growing and achieving more. But not you. Never be satisfied, even after you achieve your ultimate objectives. There’s always more that life offers. It’s up to you to go out and get it.
48. Be Organised In Everything You Do – Organisation makes your life easier. Disorder causes distraction and delay. Why do you think the military is so compulsive about organisation? Your workspace, schedule, activities and everything else in your life need to be as organised as possible so you can stay on task without losing momentum and commitment. Clarity and orderliness allow your mind to focus on more important issues because you don’t have to worry about the small stuff.
49. View Your Life as a Movie – Hollywood movies have happy endings because somebody sat down and wrote them that way. Script your own life, giving it the happy ending that you want. Then stick to the script. You may have to rewrite some parts as you go along, but if you follow your life’s screenplay, you can arrive at where you want to be when the credits roll.
50. Smile – Psychological studies have shown that people who make an effort to smile are happier than people who let situations dictate their emotions. Keep a smile on your face as much as possible and other people will be more comfortable with you, will like you more, and will want to help you achieve your goals. Your smile may even be infectious!
51. practice Self-Discipline – Discipline is the ability to do what needs to be done even when you don’t feel like doing it. Train yourself to separate your feelings and emotions from the job and just do what needs to be done. Soon, it will become second nature and you will always have the self-discipline to keep moving forward toward your goals.
52. Find Inspiration in Other People – Turn to inspirational books, movies, speeches, courses and other resources to keep yourself motivated. There are many successful people who have made it their goal to help other people improve their lives. Take advantage of this generosity by seeking out inspiring personal stories about other people’s accomplishments.
53. Look at Problems from Different Perspectives – When facing challenges, call upon the knowledge and experience you already have accumulated in your life. Ask yourself, “What do I know about this problem that already works?” “What do I know won’t work?” and “What don’t I already know and still need to learn to resolve this issue?” This helps you approach problems from different angles and use your life history to work through them.
54. Calculate Your “Hours of Power” – Different people are more energised at certain times of the day than others. For example, there are “morning people” and “night people”. Keep track of your energy level every hour for a week, writing down on a notepad how energised you are on a scale of 1 to 10. At the end of the week, look for patterns where your energy was the highest each day. Those are the “hours of power” when you can be most productive at working toward your goals.
55. Don’t Get Hung Up on Money – Most people think of money as the way we keep score of success, but this is a flawed viewpoint. There are lots of rich people who aren’t happy and lots of people without money who are successful. Money won’t buy you true happiness or even success. So don’t think that you are going to find contentment once you achieve a certain income level or bank account.
56. Change the Scenery Occasionally – Getting away for a while is a great way to recharge your batteries and get you ready to be more energised so you can keep fighting for what you want when you return. Plan a trip someplace you have never been before and soak in the scenery. Take a relaxing vacation from your worries and ambitions, even if it’s just for a day or even a few hours. You will return refreshed, rested and stronger than ever before.
57. Be an Example for Others – Provide positive support for the people around you and live your life as if you are in a fishbowl and somebody is always watching you. This will prevent you from making stupid mistakes and experiencing unnecessary setbacks. It will also inspire other people to be more like you, which is rewarding on its own.
58. Constantly Seek Ways to Improve – There’s always something you can do to make the outcome better next time. Find it.
59. Build Your Foundation First – Any structure is only as strong as the foundation upon which it is built. Your life is no exception. Make sure you have a firm sense of values and purpose and you can withstand any difficult times life throws at you.
60. Be an Explainer, Not a Complainer – Avoid the temptation to blame others for mistakes or shirk responsibility. Instead, when you make an error, have the maturity to admit it, figure out what went wrong and move on.
61. Learn from Other People’s Mistakes – When others err, learn from them the same way you learn from your own mistakes. This has the double benefit of providing you with valuable lessons and not having to deal with the “blame game” and the consequences of making errors.
62. Become a Collector of Motivational Quotes – Some people collect stamps. Others collect exotic beer cans or fishing lures. Make your hobby something that will help keep you on track toward achieving your goals. Collect motivational quotes and keep them in a file that you can access whenever you need inspiration.
63. Set Your Alarm 30 Minutes Earlier – People complain that there are never enough hours in the day to accomplish everything they need to do, but here’s a great way to “find time”. You will be amazed at how productive you can be when you simply get out of bed a half hour earlier than you normally do.
64. Avoid Comparing Yourself to Other People – Everybody is unique. No two people had the exact same experiences, opportunities and choices. While it’s helpful to find inspiration in other successful people, it’s not productive to compare yourself negatively to them.
65. Use Affirmations to Shut Down Negativity – Often, negative thoughts can get in the way of what we want to accomplish. But you can silence that tiny negative voice in your head by shouting over it with affirmations whenever it starts speaking to you.
66. Keep a Journal – Every day, write down what you did to further yourself toward your objectives. This will motivate you throughout the day so that you will have something to add to your journal later.
67. Embrace Change – The only thing we know for certain is that nothing is for certain. When change happens, don’t resist it. Instead, embrace it as the next chapter in your life. As long as you are motivated to achieve your success, change can never set you back very far. And it often offers an opportunity.
68. Don’t Get Obsessed with Perfection – Getting it right is important, but trying to get it perfect every time will only delay and distract you on your path toward success. Do you very best, but don’t expect perfection every time. Even the best hitters in baseball only connect with the ball once every three times at the plate.
69. Ask for Help When You Need It – No man is an island. Everybody occasionally needs the help of other people in order to succeed. Don’t be too proud to ask others for help. That’s what your support system is there for in the first place.
70. It’s Not Always All About You – Everybody’s life has its ups and downs. Going it alone won’t make it any easier. Let other people into your life so you can celebrate your successes and make your failure s more endurable. Nobody is an island. Your life touches many other people. Be aware of this and let it help make your journey easier.
In this guide, we have provided 70 tips designed to motivate you to never give up on your dreams and ambitions. But the truth is that nobody can motivate anybody to do anything. The only thing a person can do is offer them the inspiration and incentive they need to motivate themselves.
The 70 techniques described here can all be boiled down to three keys to successful living:
Being willing to leave your comfort zone
Not being afraid to make mistakes
Not indulging in self-limiting thinking.
As has been stated repeatedly, mistakes are going to happen. You can prepare as much as possible, but the unexpected will always occur sooner or later. Successful people don’t let setbacks and obstacles stop them from moving toward their ultimate objectives. Instead, they continually commit themselves to happiness and positive thinking, no matter what happens.
By keeping your eye on the prize and daring to dream big, you can achieve anything you want in life.
This is a great article by my friend Greg Thurston
Creator of 7 Minute Mindfulness
Watching videos of centurions, you start to see a theme: they seem content.
That might be shocking to younger people, especially anyone who fears old age. Maybe we fear missing out on opportunities in life, and worry that we’ll find ourselves too old to do things.
But we have many interviews of people 100 and older, and they love to share about their lives and offer advice to the rest of us.
Dr. Mercola (of the Mercola Video Library) interviewed three centurions for this very information, and many other people have as well.
Quite a few of us (more now than ever) have relatives or know someone who is 100 or over.
One lady I know who is 104 is full of sassy attitude and enjoys talking to people.
From this wealth of information, we can form the following ten lessons.
1. Happiness comes from what we do
At 100 years old, or older, people don’t seem to sit around and smile about the things they accumulated in life.
Rather, it’s more about their life experiences. Happy memories can go a long ways toward happiness later on!
One man over 100 years old said he did all he wanted to do. Now he wants to be helpful and keep going.
“I have so many beautiful memories,” said a woman over 100. “I got to do all the things I wanted to.”
That tells us to jump in and live life – remember that it’s about really living and making memories with people we love.
Science backs this up as well. We know people derive more happiness that is long-term from experiences such as vacations rather than from possessions.
2. Happiness comes from a positive attitude and optimism
People over 100 seem to remember life through rose tinted glasses, making it sound like an adventure even through hard times, like war.
“I’ve always been lucky,” says one centurion despite living through 2 great wars!
She also talked about how “everything makes me happy. I love talking to people… going shopping.”
Common advice from people who are doing well at 100 is to “Decide to be content.” Others say, “Don’t chase happiness. Just be satisfied.”
Deciding life is good changes our perception and makes life better, and apparently it helps you live much longer!
3. Happiness comes from living in the NOW
Age is only a number. You live for the day and keep going.
This is wisdom from someone with a very long past-but they enjoy the present.
The past is the past; we can’t change it. But we can rob ourselves of our present happiness and good emotional health by hanging onto old regrets, grudges, and pain.
To experience the ultimate feelings of inner calm and living in the now, I highly recommend that you follow this link…
You’ll gain inner peace, happiness and feel ‘uncluttered’ in your life.
4. Love and Partnership is critical for long life
Centurions often talk about their “good” marriage, all their happy memories, and all their good times together. It’s another area where they might be applying rose-tinted glasses, but it’s apparent that they got emotional support and felt like they have a life partner.
They also say that people today give up too easily these days-so there was hard work involved, but at the end of their life that part isn’t really important anymore.
“Being happily married and happy in general is the remedy for all illness.”
We don’t have studies on how marriage or long-term relationships affect life span, but you don’t have to be a scientist to take note: centurions all speak about their decades long marriage with a smile on their face.
Even people who have been widowed for a few decades say they have many, many warm memories about their married life, and that still makes them happy.
5. Eat natural, real food to feel good and live long
Many people who are 100 say they feel strong and like they’re 69 or 79. These are the people who stay active physically and mentally, and have a lot to share with other people.
Many people over 100 talk about eating fresh food that they grew themselves.
And older people will tell you over and over: eat in moderation!
6. Learn to adapt for a better and longer life
“Life goes on regardless” is a common theme. People who live well into old age understand that there is hardship in life but they know life goes on and they must too.
If you live 7, 8, 9, 10 or more decades, you’re going to see a lot of change.
People who adapt and change with the times do better. It’s part of having a positive attitude-they’re excited for new opportunities instead of fearing change.
7. Help others
Helping others is one way to build relationships and connections, and it makes you feel great.
It’s another common theme among people who live to be over 100.
Being kind and helping others gives you a sense of purpose too, and it fights depression and anxiety. Not only that, it’s a way of staying active and productive after you retire.
It’s a win-win for everyone involved, and being older and retired can mean having more time for volunteering.
8. Always learn!
Older people will advise to get a good education to help you go far in life, and science has shown that people with a Bachelor’s degree actually do live about a decade longer than people who don’t have one. (From the U.S. Centers for Disease an Control Prevention)
Older people will tell you to keep learning all through life, both in and out of school.
Be curious-it makes life more interesting and fun. And it helps you stay engaged with life and the changing technology and times. That helps you adapt too.
9. Practice Mindfulness
People over 100 tend to live in the moment as it comes, rather than worrying about plans, regrets, and getting caught up in pressure and worry.
They cherish special time with family and friends, the colors and smell of a new flower in spring, or the feel of the grass on their feet.
When life is enjoyed in the moment, it’s just better…
…And people who live in the moment more tend to live longer, happier lives!

Actively practicing mindfulness is one of the best things you can do for yourself.
When we disconnect from the mental chatter (the past, future, worry, expectations and judgements), we are able to approach life with greater perspective – we tend to see the opportunities, instead of carrying around the weight of worry and mental baggage.
There’s a wealth of research on the long term and short term health benefits of mindfulness, including boosting your immune system, Preventing cellular aging, and reducing the likelihood of age-related diseases. (UCLA)
If you’d like disconnect from the mental chatter but don’t have time for long drawn out meditation, then try 7 Minute Mindfulness.
In just 7 minutes you can release the stress that builds up, wipe away the mental chatter, and relax your mind and body… so you can enjoy a long and prosperous life!
Blocked/Dysfunctional Sacral Chakra
Symptoms associated with a blocked sacral Chakra:-
- Anorexia – very aware of body image and being fat.
- Tendency towards water infections.
- Pain connected to lower joints, hips, legs, knees, feet.
- Infertility problems.
- Lower back pain/sciatica.
- Low sexual drive.
- Inability to enjoy life/relax.
- Lives in the head, doesn’t connect with the physical body.
- Prone to emotional outbursts.
- Feels as though everything is hopeless.
- Prefers to be alone.
- Overly affectionate.
- Feels they don’t belong.
How your blocked/dysfunctional sacral chakra affects your professional and financial abilities:-
Your sacral chakra is about honouring the self, learning to let go and be yourself. If your sacral chakra isn’t healthy, you will find success and your ability to be financially secure hindered greatly. Why? You will have difficulty expressing your needs, balancing the needs of others with the needs of self.
You will struggle to be creative, this means others will be under the illusion that you are a doormat, uninspired, easy to please and gullible. You will have great difficulty saying ‘No’ and then spend much time criticising yourself for not speaking up or out. You will tend to feel second best when in the company of others and not be inspired to make the most of your image, thereby limiting your professional and financial ability to get ahead.
How your blocked/dysfunctional sacral chakra affects your relating potential.
If your sacral chakra is blocked or dysfunctional, you will use sex as a bargaining tool. Often you either withhold sex to punish or manipulate or you will use the enticement of sex to help you get what you want. You will use your sexuality to have power over the relationship. At other times, you will disinterested in sex and have little desire for the opposite sex.
You will have great difficulty in sharing your stuff with others, because your stuff will represent your self-worth, because you have absorbed the idea that love is dependent upon what you have and do, instead of who you are. You may carry guilt and therefore find it hard to relax and just enjoy yourself.
You may feel the need to constantly prove yourself which means often you will compete with your partner and this will cause stress and disagreements.
You may also cause your partner great anxiety because you will rarely let on what you feel or want, this means your partner can spend a lot of time analysing and imagining what you may be thinking or feeling.
You will be apt to bring the barriers down very quickly if you’re hurt, as a way of protecting yourself thereby creating even more isolation. You will yearn for love and approval but will be so scared of rejection, you will not allow yourself to be vulnerable and open to a full loving and trusting relationship.

LIVING LIFE TO ITS FULLEST IS ABOUT SEIZING THE OPPORTUNITIES AROUND YOU.

CONFIDENCE & SELF-ESTEEM THROUGH SOUL EMPOWERMENT –
LETTING GO & LEARNING TO LIVE – 27-28 June 2015
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING…
Reviewer: Sofia L from South Yorkshire
Outstanding, makes you realise your strengths and weaknesses. What you really, really want from life. How to move forward considering yourself more above the needs of others. All of this course was useful and interesting especially body language/behavioural tendencies.
Reviewer: Sascha M from Lincs, UK
Outstanding, gave me an abundance of tools and ideas to implement into various key points of my life that needed a catalyse to help it grow in the right direction for me personally. It was all beneficial, especially liked the in-depth business plan ideas. I went away feeling like “I CAN’ and “I WILL’. I would like to personally thank Glenn and Jill for individually guiding us all on the course and making sure all of our needs were met.
Reviewer: T.H. from
I got so much important information which will help me really change my life. I found most useful the letting go of the past, body language, and how to plan my life. It is a great course. Thank you very much Jill & Glenn for the very warm friendly atmosphere and you made me feel very welcome in your special home.
Reviewer: Karen C from Staffordshire
This class allowed me to take a challenge in travelling alone on a train for the first time, and meeting strangers who I have now bonded with. It was most useful and interesting experiencing the sister-ship, also finding out what I want in life, and the tools of how to move forward. There was excellent training from both Jill and Glenn. The food was absolutely fab too. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
Reviewer: Vanessa S from Newark
The course was all very interesting. A very welcome home and had a laugh. Very good food. Thank you for your help.
Reviewer: Debbie B from Merseyside
Clear course notes, and interesting discussions and exercises. It was interesting learning about behavioural traits. We had excellent presenters who showed their experience and vast knowledge during the course, plus all the additional information after the class. Excellent food too!
Reviewer: Lyn K from Cambridgeshire
It just was, not quite what I thought, but more than I was aware I needed. The clearing on Saturday was most useful.
Reviewer: Fiona S from Belper
This course has helped me realise that my way of thinking and the time to myself for the last 5 years, ( Jill, thank you for your guidance) has been right. It was useful understanding the patterns in both my parents, which has become part of me and who I am, and have become today. Now I can breathe and the shackles have been removed from my ankles.
Reviewer: Grace D from Belper
I feel I really needed this and that it came along at the right time. It has re-confirmed that I am doing okay and that I need to let go of feeling negative at times. The behaviour work, who I am, what I want, and the essential keys to what I want, (thank you Glenn) was most interesting. I loved the whole weekend which was a safe environment to let go. The food was fabulous and I felt at home. Will be back!! Jill, Glenn and Ian are friends!!
Reviewer: Rosemary N from Newark
It was very relevant to me. I feel empowered, and I want and need to go forward with lots of changes. It was useful learning about the inner child and how to deal with other types of people. I never been on a course like this before but I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, and want to go forward with self confidence and with no fear.
Reviewer: Pamela H from Wrea Green
It covered all bases….and more besides! The handbook is very informative. Jill went at a pace presented by the group, and produced her own experiences along with our own. I found it interesting learning how the 4 types interact, wordplay and personality types. This course goes deeply into family dynamics, learning how to counteract unnecessary conditioning, so you learn who you really are.
Reviewer: Barbara R from Tuxford
It was an enlightening weekend and I found it all very useful and interesting. It was an emotional ride, and it brought a lot of stuff to the surface, that I had tried to bury. Now I can deal with it.
Reviewer: Gill W. from Worksop
The parts I found most useful was understanding and knowing how I can let go.
Reviewer: Edward H. from Ireland
Very well organised, everyone was treated very respectfully. The last section working out how to acheive the end goal was excellent.
Reviewer: Yvonne K from Leeds
Jill made me feel more positive. I had a wonderful weekend with Jill and the people I met. Jill and her family are so welcoming. I am at peace and feel more calm in Jill’s presence. Coming to terms with who I am, that I am an important person, how to deal with all my issues. I know I will succeed. Outstanding.
Reviewer: S. Clayton from Grimsby
Most useful were how to know and ask for what I want. To recognise my own needs and go for it. To make a plan and break it all down, so more manageable,
Reviewer: Kirsty W from Sheffield
Outstanding – The parts I found most useful and interesting were goal setting. Look at who I am and about how to get rid and make changes. Found the course useful and enlightening.
Reviewer: Kathryn R from Wakefield
After completing this class I now feel empowered to change those part of my life that are not working. I now feel that I have ‘inside information’ when it comes to human behaviour. I have learnt how to formulate a plan to make positive change and reach for my goals. Thank you x
Reviewer: Angela W from Nottinghamshire
It opens many doors and possibilities that I couldn’t see clearly before – wow! The parts I found useful/interesting were seeing the types of people we are, that made more sense of their behaviours better. Big thank you for your vast experience and knowledge that you shared with us all!
Reviewer: Lorraine M from Southwell
It made me face myself, and set me on the path of growth.
Reviewer: Judith D from Newport
I love every part of it.
Reviewer: Elaine B from Mansfield
It gave everyone, including me an opportunity to explore the possibilities for becoming more empowered in a safe and supportive environment. Discussion & time to explore stepping stones to acheiving goals. Glenn’s session on communication/behaviour. Tools to help you achieve the things you want. Fabulous weekend, thanks as always.
Reviewer: Liz G from Sheffield
Jill made me ask difficult questions of myself, in a genuine attempt to clear out the rubbish, so I can continue on the journey of my choosing. The behaviour section with Glenn was fun & illuminating. So was the section on goals and how to manifest. Wonderful handbook.
Reviewer: Ian N from Sheffield
It made me realise that there was a lot I have not released. The part I found most useful/interesting was looking at yourself as a baby.
The list of excuses we come up are numerous, such as:-
- I’ll do it tomorrow.
- I’ll do it after the holidays.
- I’ll do it when I’m feeling better.
- I’ll do it after the house is painted.
- I’ll do it after I’ve lost some weight.
- I can’t afford it.
- I don’t have time.
The list of possible excuses is endless, so why are we still stuck in a rut? Because we live in DENIAL. We lie to ourselves and are unaware of the what we are saying.
So many people are…
- in jobs that they don’t like.
- relationships they find unfulfilling.
- dissatisfied with their financial status.
- Don’t know how to or where to begin creating change.
With all the unhappiness and dissatisfaction around, you would think people would be making the most of what’s around them, but the truth is, for some people, they have been doing the same thing day in and day out for so long, they can’t see what to change. For others, they want to change, but don’t believe they have the right qualifications, the right opportunities, that they aren’t bright enough, old enough or feel they are just too old that they opt for the status-quo.
If you have had enough of any of the following:-
- Being the weight you are.
- Earning the same salary year in, year out.
- Doing the same job.
- Being in a relationship that doesn’t support you.
- With people who take you for granted.
- Being unfit.
Then congratulate yourself, because you have made it to stage 1 of the detour road in your life. If we wish to create change, the first thing we need to do is come to the belief that we have had enough. We may say to ourselves, “That’s it, I’m done with this,” and in that moment, we have created a defining moment, we have acknowledged to ourselves that we are not happy and that we are ready to do something about it.
Far too often, people desire to lose weight, or to get a better job but don’t because the desire is not enough, they don’t take action or, if they do, they don’t stick at it long enough for it to begin to make a difference.
The first stage of creating change and helping yourself on the first rung of the fulfilment and abundance ladder is to acknowledge where you are at, and that you have decided enough is enough.
When you have decided that, what you do next is pivotal to you moving on and moving up, or sliding back down into the abyss. I once heard someone say that you can only reach the level of those people you surround yourself with. So let’s try looking at your life as a business … is your life, your business, failing or succeeding?
In order to get where you want to be, you need to identify those people who are movers and shakers, and those people who are dead-weights. Now don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a ‘let’s use people for what we can get out of them’ scenario. It is about understanding the people you associate with and seeing that this is the level you will attain. If for example, all of your friends are in debt, you will, if you aren’t already, find yourself in debt too. Now you may disagree with that statement but studies show we reach the same level as those people we hang about with. If your friends or work colleagues are negative, you will become, if you’re not already, negative too.
Throughout our lives we are programmed to other people’s beliefs that hold us back, create limitation. The people around us will often dictate the level of what we believe is possible for us. Schools, for example, are often taught to programme kids to move into normal jobs; the teachers in schools, very rarely, are able to help those kids who have big dreams like being the next leader of their country, an artist, in the movies, in sales. These are roles that for most teachers are not in their comfort zone.
I remember my stepson once being asked to write an essay about the first job he wanted to do when he left school and the wage he expected to receive for that role. Well my stepson completed his homework and handed it in only to be told to do it again and be more realistic.
My stepson hadn’t chosen anything that wasn’t possible; in fact, he had put down he wanted to become a dentist and work towards having his own practice. The salary he had put down was around 35,000 pounds sterling for his yearly salary, which he had researched. This teacher had not only just in one step run the risk of blowing my stepson’s dreams out of the water, but also had just implanted that he wasn’t good enough or did not possess the ability to achieve his dreams. I was livid.
If my husband and I hadn’t been there to tell him differently this could have affected his future greatly.
I too remember being at school and being asked to write an essay on our goals for the future. At that time I was a dancer at a major British Ballet Organisation School. I also, from a young age, had decided that I didn’t want to spend my life in the same town I was born in, working and ending up dying in that same town. Like my stepson, I wrote down my goals, my plan to work overseas and that once I couldn’t dance anymore I would like to teach. I remember my English teacher well, he was an ex-army officer who, whilst teaching us, would practice his golf swing with his walking cane, which I am sure he carried merely for the purpose of hitting some unsuspecting student when they weren’t doing as he expected.
When it came to the essay being marked, I, along with a few others, was told to write it again and stop messing about. He then proceeded to tell us we should have written something like Emily Bishop (name changed). When he had finished speaking I put up my hand and said that I felt his marking was wrong. His face went purple as he spluttered at me, “Wrong”. I remarked that we are all individuals and writing was a form of communication and also art, that to expect us to write the same as someone else was, to me, a way of creating copycats without originality. Well that remark got me sent to the headmaster’s office, but you know what? From that day I vowed I would never let someone tell me what I could, or how much, I could achieve.
Mr. Dyeball, my English teacher, went on to say that I would never amount to much and that I was an accident waiting to happen. Well, I may not be the financially richest person in the world (yet), lol, but I have lived and worked in Germany. I have travelled to Japan, the USA, and worked doing what I love to do, inspiring people and teaching them that the only limits we find, are the ones we create or believe exist.
But coming back to what I was saying, through the process of chasing my dreams I have had to make new friends, let friends go, and become adaptable. You have to learn to recognise those people who support you, truthfully support you. They are those friends who stay through the mean, hard times and the fun times. They are the ones who aren’t afraid to make sure you see the pitfalls, but encourage you to keep going.
If your family are your dream breakers, then things can get a bit hard unless you know how to deal with them. If your family poo-poos your ideas of running your own business, or make fun of your dreams, then learn not to tell them your dreams nor include them in what you’re doing. You can still spend time with them, talking about their interests, how they are doing, but make a point of limiting the time you spend with them and focus on creating your dreams so they become a reality for you.
In life, we are either growing or regressing. Change is constant, and the only way we can begin to move towards our dreams is to take a chance on ourselves.
Once you’ve identified those people who are helping your life to grow and work, and those who are holding you back and keeping you locked in stagnation, you have the ability to segregate yourself from the blocks.
To make change effective, you have to be willing to acknowledge what isn’t working in your life without blame. Yes, that’s right, without blame. When we blame others, be it you didn’t have the right teachers in life, you didn’t have the financial backing, or any other excuse you can come up with, you are saying that you are not accountable for your life. When you’re not accountable you can’t be empowered and consciously choose what happens to you.
Rather than look back at your failures, look at each experience as a lesson on what does and doesn’t work. Look at your attitude and how you can learn from that experience so that next time the outcome is different.
Every day you wake up, you have an opportunity for your life to be different. You choose what to wear, what to eat, so why not choose what you want to experience. One of the biggest problems in being unable to create change is something called fear.
We may be afraid to be wrong. We may be afraid of people rejecting us. We may be afraid of losing everything we have, but, unless we are prepared to believe in ourselves and take that chance, we will only live a half-lived life. When you face your fears nine times out of ten, they never are as bad as you think they are going to be.
For example, I often stand up and speak in front of audiences, whether I am teaching or doing a keynote speech. The hour before I am due to talk or teach, the stomach of nerves kicks in. Five minutes before you’re due to talk, despite visiting the loo, you still feel the need to go again but once you step through the door, stop, smile and take a deep breath, the nerves begin to slowly dissipate.
They say public speaking is the number one fear for most people. I actually believe it is the fear of change. Most people are reluctant to change. If you feel your life isn’t where it should be and you are serious about moving your life to where it should be and becoming and having the best of everything, then you seriously need to consider what you’re doing and what next step you need to take.
If you don’t invest in you, then life will never change.
This is the last time I will be running this class for the
foreseeable future, due to other projects in 2015,
so if you miss it, the bandwagon has moved on without you!
If you’d like help in changing your life, take a look at the ‘Soul Empowerment’ Master Class that is taking place on the 22/23 November here in the UK.
In this master class I will give you practical, know-how tools to help you navigate life and create the life you want to have. You can change your world. I have helped many people with my techniques and personal formulae for success. If you have had enough and you’re ready to transform your life and fulfil your potential, I look forward to seeing you in November at my visionary life changing master class.
Have you often considered having a psychic reading and then discounted it? Perhaps you were put off by the cost of a reading, or the hustle and bustle of busy life sometimes gets in your way of making time.
Travelling around the world, as well as up and down the breadth of the UK, I have a fabulous time meeting people who are open to embracing change, looking at their lives and how they can make things better.
A spiritual guidance or psychic tarot reading can offer you a lot of insight, perhaps highlight opportunities you didn’t see existed. A spiritual guidance or psychic reading is more than what ‘might’ happen in your future, it helps you look at the ‘NOW’ and this is the key to ensuring that your future is as you would want it to be.
Here is an email I received after doing a reading for a lady at the recent Gorton Monastery Mind Body Spirit Fair …
the information that came through. It helped me to really understand who I am and how some of my behaviour is stopping me from being promoted at work. I was also surprised that it showed me how I can cause issues in my relationship, which I hadn”t realised before. My wife has already seen an improvement, so thanks for that.So, for any of you guys out there, who need to change their life for the better, I would really recommend this reading. I particularly liked the specific information that related to my life purpose, I didn’t realise there were options for me to choose from. I thought there was only one. This reading has been the breakthrough I need, so I can now see, how to get to where I want to go. Thank you once again.”
In our society, we are rewarded when we show consistency. Consistency creates feelings of security; reliability and order. However, how conscious are you, of ‘how’ your regular habits, may be restricting you from opportunities to improve the quality of your life?
Are you a creature of habit? Is your life a routine of mundane chores, finishing off with watching the same television programmes, before retiring to bed?
Many people fear change. If we embrace change, it can make others wary, insecure and uncertain, as to whether it will change their relationship with you. If you have been wanting to change your life, but weren’t sure of where to begin, the first place you might want to start, is by identifying where you unconsciously just do the same things. For example: –
- Shop at the same grocery stores week in and week out?
- Go to the same coffee shop/café?
- Go to the same town or shopping centre?
- Watch the same television programmes?
- Get up at the same time every day?
- Go to bed at the same time every night?
- Eat at a particular time, whether you are hungry or not?
- Always order the same drinks?
- Eat the same foods?
- Read the same type of books?
- Use particular brands and never consider trying something new?
Change happens and new opportunities come, when we try something different. Perhaps you might consider going to a different grocery store first. Small changes, be it a different television programme, or stopping for a cappuccino at a different café, can all help you to get comfortable with consciously thinking about your choices.
When we create a change in our everyday lives, we open up new doorways, and those doorways create possibilities. When we continually and unconsciously just keep doing the same things, day in and day out, we stagnate the energies around us and stagnation eventually becomes boring.
I once had a client who continually came to me for readings, because she wanted to know when she was going to find herself a man. Every time she would ask the same question, and each time the answer seemed to be, there wasn’t one. She was continually being asked to embrace change, and her regular response was she didn’t have time, or she didn’t know what she wanted. This is where we often make the mistake of thinking we have to do something big. I suggested to her she began by going somewhere different, a different supermarket, or a different coffee shop. Surely she could do that, yes?
She didn’t look impressed, but said she would think about it. She couldn’t see how making these small changes would change anything, it all seemed trivial to her. During her reading, it indicated that a chance meeting could be on the cards, but the outcome was undecided because my client was unclear about what she wanted.
I sent her home, asking her to consider what she wanted in her life. I told her to make a list of everything, no matter how impossible it would seem, and to then consider what she could do differently.
I asked her to focus on being more conscious of her choices and to try, where she could, to do whatever she normally did, differently.
She normally arose at 7am. She changed this to 6.30am and enjoyed a leisurely cup of tea in her conservatory, before getting dressed. She used this time to write in her journal, and consider the day ahead.
She also opted to drive to work a different route. She normally shopped during her lunch break, and admitted she had a tendency to just grab anything, so her diet was poor. She decided to swap her shopping at lunch, for a walk to the local park to eat her sandwich. On her way home, she opted to drop into a different supermarket and shop at her leisure in the evening.
Within a month of changing her routine, whilst shopping at the supermarket, she met a guy who was in the process of getting over his divorce. They laughed and joked when they saw each other and eventually he asked her out. My client is now happy, she has her man. She also feels happier than ever before. On her last visit, she told me that she makes a point of ensuring she does something different every day, and through this she has made new friends, visited new places and experienced lots of wonderful new things in her life.
So you see, change needn’t be painful. It just requires us to be more conscious about what we are doing, and where we are doing it. It isn’t enough to hope that those people around you will change and help you to change. You have to begin making conscious choices to change something, even if it is just your routine.
If you’d like help in discovering what is blocking you in your life, feel free to contact me for a personal or professional insight reading. These readings will focus upon what you are doing that is creating barriers between you and where you want to be. You can check out the reading here: –
Greatness is a road leading towards the unknown.
Charles de Gaulle
Within all of us, is a desire to feel connected. Whether it is connected to another being, as in a relationship, or connected within your wider social group; the soul chooses to experience many different facets, so that it learns to understand itself, the world, and the universe.
If, like so many others, you have wondered why your life has turned out the way it has, why your behaviour and life choices may have fallen short of your expectations, then the more you learn about how to move from where you are, and into the visionary creator role, the quicker you will find your ability to transform your life, and live an inspired and fulfilled life.
When we are born, our brain is programmed by our up-bringing; our parents, our teachers, our friends, our family and sadly, by the media; but is that who we really are?
The authentic self understands its own power. It understands its purpose in life, and how to work with the laws of the universe, to bring into being that which it desires.
Have you ever wondered why some people appear to be born lucky? Is it that the universe selects certain people, over others? I don’t believe people are lucky. You can be born into a wealthy family, have the best education available, and still end up a loser. You can be born into the world with very little, experience great hardships, and still become a wealthy and abundant person; like Oprah Winfrey. So it isn’t down to luck. What makes the difference between us? What is stopping you from having your dreams fulfilled?
The universe is a complex matrix of energy, vibration and sound. For our universe to function, everything is in balance; co-creating, supporting and sharing light, energy and sound,to create a diverse universe.
The authentic self holds no fear. It holds no doubt. It understands the unlimited potential that resides within the universe, and most importantly of all, it has the capacity to understand, and choose, that which serves it best. To the authentic self, there is NO LIMITATION. Does this mean being selfish? No! It means stepping into our purpose, and achieving everything that we can possible dream of. All it requires, is for us to learn how to move from being a reactionary human-being, into an actionary being.
Around us, is information, experiences which can impact our lives, either for our benefit, or our detriment. Much of our programming and our limited senses create a sense of limitation, a lack of finances, a lack of opportunity, a feeling of not being enough, a general feeling that what we believe and hope we can have, appears to be an unobtainable dream. But what if I could show you there is another way?
What would it mean to you, if you were able to access information for yourself that would result in your awakening to your fullest potential?
To have more, we have to become more. Whether you desire personal changes, changes in your relationships, your career; perhaps your health needs to be worked on. By learning how to work with the authentic self, everyday life experiences can move from mundane, into a vibrant experience.
If you’d like to create transformation, join us on our upcoming ‘Confidence and Self Esteem Through Soul Empowerment’ Master Class; and begin creating lasting change. Move into manifesting, and become part of a group of people all around the world, who are now experiencing life in its fullest sense, having worked with this life-changing programme.
Here’s a comment from one of my Japanese clients about their experience of this powerful programme: –
Hitoshi – “I came to Jill because even though I was studying for a business degree, I felt I needed to change direction. To change direction would cause my family to be displeased. I felt my life direction was wrong, and I was confused and unsatisfied. With Jill’s help, I was able to get a clear picture of who I really was, and with tools Jill gave me, it helped me to connect with skills and recognise abilities I didn’t know I had. From this, I have found a renewed sense of focus, and my approach to my life is now helping me to work ‘with’ my talents, rather than hide them. This teaching is very different from other teachings I have experienced. I have been able to heal myself, connect to power and truth about myself, and I found a way to deal with sensitive topics, which normally I would not discuss with others. I now feel I have better foundation for my life. This has helped me with better relationships, and a new direction. I feel, at last, I have found my purpose, and can move forward.”

Are you consciously trying to awaken and discover your life purpose? – Do you have a deep desire to fulfill your potential?
Within all of us is a desire to feel connected. Whether it is connected to another being, as in a relationship, connected within your wider social group, the soul chooses to experience many different facets, so that it learns to understand itself, the world and the universe.
If, like so many others, you have wondered why your life has turned out the way it has, why your behaviour and life choices may have fallen short of your expectations, then the more you learn about how to move from where you are, and into the visionary creator role, the quicker you will find your ability to live an inspired and fulfilled life.
When we are born, our brain is programmed by our up-bringing, our parents, the schools we attended and the hundreds of people around us, but is that who we really are? According to the angels, ancient manuscripts, religious papers, many refer to a part of us, which lies deep within us, that part, that aspect is referred to as the authentic self.
The authentic self, understands its own power. It understands its purpose in life and how to work with the laws of the universe to bring into being that which it desires. Have you ever wondered why some people appear to be born lucky? Is it that the universe selects certain people, over others? I don’t believe people are lucky, you can be born into a wealthy family, have the best education available and still end up a loser. You can be born into the world with very little, experience great hardships and still become a wealthy and abundant person like Oprah Winfrey. So it isn’t down to luck, what makes the difference between us? What is stopping you from having your dreams fulfilled?
The universe is a complex matrix of energy, vibration and sound, for our universe to function everything is in balance, co-creating, supporting and sharing light, energy and sound to create a diverse universe.
The authentic self holds no fear, it holds no doubt, it understands the unlimited potential that resides within the universe, and most importantly of all, it has the capacity to understand, and choose that which serves it best. To the authentic self, there is NO LIMITATION. Does this mean being selfish no, it means stepping into our purpose and achieving everything that we can possible dream of, all it requires is for us to learn how to move from being a reactionary human-being into an actionary being.
Around us is information, experiences which can impact our lives either for our benefit or our detriment. Much of our programming and our limited senses create a sense of limitation, a lack of finances, a lack of opportunity, a general feeling that what we believe and hope we can have appears to be an unobtainable dream. But, what if, I could show you there is another way?
What would it mean to you, if you were able to access information for yourself that would result in your awakening to your fullest potential?
To have more, we have to become more. Whether you desire personal changes, changes in your relationships, your career, perhaps your health needs to be worked on, by learning how to work with the authentic self, everyday life experiences can move from mundane into a vibrant experience.
If you’d like to create transformation, join us on our upcoming Soul Empowerment master class and begin creating lasting change. Move into manifesting and become part of a group of people all around the world who are now experiencing life in its fullest sense having worked with this life changing programme.
