Hey Team..

Last night, as I was winding down after the Yankees Game and watching the US Open, I began to think about the word "greatness".... and that was immediately followed by the word "life"....

I mean honestly, what are we really going after in life?

We want a great life... YES.

But, why is it so hard for so many of us to define what that even looks like?

👉We get what we want, then we are no longer satisfied with that.

👉So, we set the bar higher, then, we get back in the chase game.

👉Maybe, it is not actually achievement that we are chasing after all?

👉Maybe, it is the chase and the pursuit balanced against the relationship between security vs. spontaneity, or certainty vs. uncertainty.

We love both.

What is it that drives you? 

Do you run away from security, or towards it?

Or, do you achieve one then crave more of the other?

Personally, I love both.

And when it comes to growth, achievement, forward movement, well, I am addicted.

On the flip, I also crave the security of knowing "it will all be alright"....

And I have to say this, "it has always been alright".... 

Knowing that gives me more permission and freedom to go chase the uncertainty...

That is my fuel.....

That is what makes life so amazing....

Challenging yourself, achieving the challenge, celebrating, then going again....

The security shows itself in the competency of achievement... and during the celebration AND in the amazing relationships we build....

A little trick I have used through the years to achieve my own self-proclaimed personal greatness has been manifesting...

Visualizing what I want..... sometimes when I begin it is not super clear... and each day, keeping my eye on it... polishing the vision, making it more vivid each day...

As I do that, it begins to happen through my aligned day to day actions.....

Each day, I spend some time with the vision, the dream, the manifesting.....

I want to not just see it, but feel it.

Now, I know this can seem deep.... but it really works....

Think about your own life... when you had those strong, convicted visions... 

I bet you achieved them... you created them. 

Those visions became your life!

That is why it is so important to keep your visions healthy, clean, and most importantly positive. Just as we can create more positive, the same is true for negative if we condition ourselves to think that way.

It works in all parts of your life.... and I do believe it is based off of the known quote, "Where your attention goes, your energy flows".....

For those who are more on the spiritual front, it has been termed vibrations.. or aligned vibrations between you and the universe....

However you want to look at it, it is ok. 

Just make sure you understand the concept.

See it. Feel it. Believe it. Get to work and start creating it.

There is a catch though....

You must have quiet time to really do it.

If you want this to work, you must unplug, stop talking, and ground yourself.

This is the whole idea behind my AM Walk that I love my Coaching Clients to do....

20-30minutes in the AM... unplugged.

This is where you lead yourself.

You talk to yourself.

You coach yourself.

You start manifesting your own vision and greatness. 

Muhammad Ali used to say he won the fight far away from the ring....

Many Pro Athletes feel like they have played the game before playing the game...

Manifesting daily. That leads to stronger self-belief, confidence, peace, and personal power.

Take some time today....

Even a few minutes...

Start manifesting....

YOU make it happen.
