Did you know our attention span has decreased from 15 seconds to 4 seconds in the last 15 years?
The reason for this is because we have access to so much media and everything is vying for our attention. At lightning speeds for that matter.
I was listening to a podcast the other day and a well-known entrepreneur gave up social media for one year. He is still in the middle of it.
He said he does not miss it. What he did notice was there was a low level of anxiety coming from all the time spent on social media.
A light bulb went off over my head! He’s right. I decided right then and there that my social media time would be limited. I can only take so much! Especially in this time with the pandemic, politics, and bullshit going on.
Know what? I don’t miss it. I feel great. I even think my attention span has increased.

Have you ever traded your expectations for appreciations? If so how did that work for you?
Expectations are funny things. They hold seeds of entitlement. Ewww, I know that sounds yucky, but they do.
Remember the people on the airplane who got so angry when they were asked to leave the plane that they fought everyone? Things even ended up in lawsuits?
Yes, that holds seeds of entitlement.
Would it have been better for the people to just get up, accept that they had double-booked the plane, and kindly gotten up and walked off the plane?
YES! Who knows why things changed? Perhaps there is a reason we do not understand. Get up and let go of those expectations.
Turn it over to appreciation and watch what happens.
Perhaps if that had happened the person would have gotten off the plane only to find their long lost love in the airport while waiting on the next flight.
Or maybe, they could have started up a discussion with someone while waiting that totally changed...
"Follow disciplines that serve your growth." Kathie Owen
The next time you feel stuck in a rut or un-motivated ask yourself, "What can I do right now that will serve my growth?"
Sit in silence for a moment, meditate on your growth, and what exactly you want.
Are you struggling to find exactly what you want? Or your definite chief aim? Well, this simple download can (and will) help with that.
When we picture our goals from the end in mind, like Neville Goddard and Napoleon Hill teach something magical happens. We start to form a discipline that serves our growth.
When we hit stumbling blocks, and we will, we see that they are serving our purpose and are there for a reason. To help us grow!!
Focus on the discipline it takes for you to grow. When building habits that stick it takes discipline.
Do you know who has true discipline? David Goggins.
He is an American ultramarathon runner, ultra-distance cyclist, triathlete, motivational speaker, and author. He is a retired...
"You can have the best plans, ideas, and thoughts in your mind and nothing will happen until you take action." -Kathie Owen
Action kills procrastination. Think about it. Have you ever put something off and then once you took a small action it just felt better?
Take cleaning a drawer or a closet. Take one small step towards doing the project, most times it moves you enough that you quit putting it off.
Personal initiative helps to take action. What is that? It is simply holding yourself accountable and just do it. Even if it is one small action towards doing the thing you dread.
In the book Eat That Frog the author tells us to do the hardest thing first in the morning. This puts you into action and makes the rest of the day go by smoothly! Try it! See how it works for you!
Personal initiative, this is one of the 13-week virtue-building topics of the week in the FREE (for now) email list. Build virtues like Ben Franklin or Napoleon Hill
Action is the key to getting...
"By expressing dissatisfaction a person attunes themselves to lifelines that draw them in and where things genuinely are worse than before." -Vadim Zeland Reality Transurfing
A pendulum is a thought structure that everyone thinks. It ONLY wants YOUR energy, nothing else.
But when we complain or express dissatisfaction we put ourselves in harm's way. Why? Because the pendulum is getting our energy and sending us into the lifeline that will lead to destruction.
What Vadim means by this is when you complain, or seriously dislike something, it actually sends you to a life that is worse than what you are complaining about.
This happens so easily because we are programmed to complain about uncomfortable situations.
This is also a great example of the victim-victimizer model from my therapist Shary Davis. We get stuck in the endless cycle of victim-victimizer (you know the bottom of the triangle). It is a vicious cycle. *See the picture at the end of this post.
When you focus on...
I first heard this term about a year ago. It just feels wrong to me. But I truly wanted to understand this concept so I did some research. I now understand why and when someone would view thinking positively as toxic. But positivity itself is NOT toxic. What is toxic? FORCED positivity.
Who came up with this term anyhow? First of all, positivity is not even a real word. And second of all, if it were the two terms do not go together. It is a true oxymoron.
So what is toxic positivity? Well, I find it to be when something really tragic happens and someone tells you, "Everything happens for a reason." or "Just think positive it will be over soon." That my friends are forcing positive vibes on someone who needs to grieve. That is FORCED positivity.
Study the diagram of consciousness by David Hawkins. It is Power VS Force. Do you think someone who is coming from POWER is going to FORCE...
You see them everywhere on your Facebook feed. Friends selling lashes, makeup, candles, workout attire (really cute stuff), jewelry, and even teas. Yup teas! If you are one of those folks selling online you will want to read this blog post.
Do you want to appeal to your customer? Abso-freaking-lutley! If not then skip this post!
I have 3 tips for you! But before I get to those tips, remember selling is not about YOU! Never forget that. This is outer intention 101.
Inner intention is about you, it’s what you hope to acquire. Maybe that is the sale. Your sales will expound by leaps and bounds if you use Outer Intention. That’s a Reality Transurfing term but I am about to explain what it is and how it works. I have to tell you a story first.
It seems every gal I know is selling something on Facebook and starting a new group or following to join them on their journey. So if everyone is doing this, what are YOU going to do to stand out? Hang...
The 3 patterns of focus with Tony Robbins are as follows:
YOUR ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION WILL QUANTIFY YOUR EMOTIONS!
AND IT IS YOUR CHOICE!
To be in the best state of mind/consciousness:
Anything else will put you on a lower scale of consciousness. Remember the consciousness scale in Power vs Force?
Any of the FORCE consciousness levels means that your focus is not in the “correct” pattern.
You can focus on the FORCE levels, it is your choice. But those will not get you into a place where synchronicities fly off the shelf!! It is a mindset shift.

The 30-day anomalous challenge! It transformed my world in magic fashion. Seriously!
In my opinion, the Anomalous Challenge is much like Artist Dates from the Book The Artist Way by Julia Cameron. The Artist Date is a once-weekly, festive, solo expedition to explore something that interests you. The Artist Date need not be overtly “artistic”– think mischief more than mastery. Artist Dates fire up the imagination. They spark whimsy.
The Anomalous Challenge and The Artist Dates are just ways to get you out of your comfort zone. It actually reprograms your brain - in magic fashion. But you knew I was going to say this.
In late 2019 I started recording videos of myself in my journal. I knew one day I wanted to become a public speaker and YouTube influencer. But I hated being on camera. <- This was actually a very limiting belief I had. After about 10 days of doing the videos in my journal, I started recording actual videos. However, it wasn’t until March...
