The Best Things

The Best Things

The best things can take years to fully develop into the greatest things. Successful businesses usually don’t happen overnight, there are years and years of grafting behind that success – you know the stuff we all don’t see and probably best that we don’t.

Success isn’t a mystery, it’s a catalogue of events, good and sometimes bad, matched with consistency, 100% effort, absolute dedication and that never ending desire to keep going.  I think we can all find those strengths within us, it just needs to be paired up with that one thing you are truly passionate about. So whether it be a successful author, a champion healthier body, the start up of a new billionaire potential business or the desire to travel the world – select that one thing that gets you super excited, so that no matter what road block you hit, you’re gonna just keep on going!!

It’s your life, go get it!!

Cracking the Code to Success

cracking the code to success

Cracking the Code to Success

Success will be inevitable for you if you take your mind off the success and put it back into your daily action plan.  In doing what you do, ensure your daily habits/rituals/behaviours are in alignment with what you want to achieve. This is the time to “get your head down” and stay in relevant, consistent “doing mode”. Cracking the code to success will never get boring if you stay on the right path for you. Keep your dreams within reach by focusing on your doing plan and just get doing.

Let your heart hold the dream, keep your mind focused on making the correct choices and decisions that will honour baby steps forward and let your body talk the talk and walk the walk.

If you want to crack the code to success then applying the above formula will silently but surely take you there.

Stay on it!!

It’s your life, go get it!!

What’s Your Inner Strategy?

Inner Strategy

What’s Your Inner Strategy?

Behind every strategy is another strategy, let me explain.

So let’s say you want to change something for the better in your life, let’s say for example, you want to change your career and go on a completely different direction. Let’s say you want to move away from your Management Consultancy Business and progress with a new career in property development.  So first of all I would say, hey you, that’s truly amazing and that I admire your spirit, drive and determination to change your future, congratulations, you’ve taken your very first step, well done!!  Now the next part for you is likely to be exciting, crazy, liberating, fulfilling, challenging and possibly frightening – all at once!!  You’ve gained the knowledge, you’ve got the outer strategy and you are damn well ready to execute – oh yes, you definitely know where you’re going with this one.  However, I also want you to think about your inner strategy – what do I mean by that?

Your inner strategy is that vitally important checklist, the inner compass guiding and strengthening you on the unknown path ahead.  This inner strategy is the imperative foundations that you will build your outer strategy upon – you’ve got to get the inner strategy right…...first and foremost.  On your inner strategy checklist you will be clear on the following areas:

  • I clearly know my core values and what each value means to mean.
  • I specifically know what is personally important to me going forward in life – I know my non-negotiables.
  • I fully believe in my capabilities, unlimited potential and I have faith in myself even when there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel.
  • I am fully supportive of me, as much as I want solid support from the people closest to me, this is not necessary, as it is my responsibility to support myself with every choice, decision and commitment I make.
  • I have a contingency plan containing critical action points that serve my inner wellbeing if and when difficult stresses arise – I know what’s in my combat toolbox to strengthen my mind, body and help me regain any lost focus.
  • I am confident, resilient and have an abundance of energy that is absolutely necessary to the success of my new vision.
  • I am not afraid to ask for help when I need it, I believe that asking for help is a necessary part of the process.
  • I am clear on my standards and expectations and I will not deviate from these in challenging times.
  • I will regularly take quiet time out to reflect, review and refresh my thinking.
  • I am totally committed to the end goal however I will remain present in the process and give everything my best.
  • I promise to value my self worth and continue to grow and contribute to my purpose at every opportunity.

Your inner strategy is more important than the outer strategy, you’ve got to be clear on this stuff at the very beginning because if you are unclear on any of these statements any slight failure along the way may crumble your progress.

What I am saying is, go to work on yourself, know your inner strategy, have clarity and self awareness about you, for this will be the BEST start you can ever give yourself before any major life change.  This is the sure start that will inevitably lead you to success.

Thank you for being here.

Stop and Take Stock

stop and take stock images

Stop and Take Stock

Every now and again it’s good to stop and take stock of where you’re at in terms of where you are going. It’s so easy to keep going and keep going on automatic pilot without checking if where you are right now is where you need to be. Before you go too far, plan some “stop and take stock” time, this could really be the catalyst in shaping your destiny.  Take a 360 degree look at what’s happening with you and what’s happening around you – do you like what you see? If you do, great, keep moving forward towards that dream goal but if not, now is the time to do something different.  Remember nothing changes until you do, so stop and take stock of you, you’ll be so glad you did.

Thank you for being here, it’s your life, go get it!!

One More Step

one more step

One More Step

Even if you don’t really feel like it, even if you feel you’ve had enough, go on, just take one more step, for this step could be the difference between making it or breaking it.

Even if it’s not that one step, it certainly could be the next.  So just when you think to yourself, “That’s it I’ve had enough of going for this dream, getting to this goal is taking forever, this is way much harder than I first anticipated”. Just think about this, What’s the alternative?  Going back, is that what you want for yourself? Stopping and going backwards, back to there, that place where you don’t want to be, is that really for you?

Determination

You have much more inner drive and determination in you than that, so take that one more step, take it and after that, I bet you feel like taking another. One step at a time, that’s all it takes, then when you look back, you will see how far you have come, you will really see the progress you have made.

So go on, do this one for yourself, take one more step, go on, take it now, you’ll be so glad that you did.

It’s your life, go get it.

Are You Stuck in the Mud?

stuck in the mud image

Stuck in the Mud?

Are you stuck in the mud with nowhere to go right now?  Well if you are, and hopefully not literally, this is possibly a good metaphor of how you are feeling or what you are currently experiencing.

What I would say to you is this, think of it this way – be grateful for the challenge, because in every challenge there is the opportunity to learn, grow, develop and be a better you.  You see, you may feel like you have tried many ways, but many ways is not every way and there WILL be a way to break free from the challenge you’re currently facing.  Can you honestly say you’ve tried every way?  I am guessing possibly not because there is always the ways you’ve not yet thought of – yes those invisible ones which aren’t quite clear to you right now.

This is where your creativity and super imagination come into play, this is the time you have to get going and get thinking “out of the box”.  It may also be the time to face up to the reality of what is stopping you from moving forward and I mean what is really stopping you – usually this is fears from within, imaginary fears that hold you back from taking that next step.  Yes, we all have them!!

So I challenge you today to take one small, tiny brave step towards overcoming these fears, believe me, when you do this, you’re whole mindset will start to change.  You see, this is where the momentum starts to build and it will encourage you to keep going, to keep taking courageous steps towards your goal.

Nothing changes until you change and a good start would be seeing yourself out of the mud and flying high amongst the stars, dancing in the midst of your dreams.

Take on the challenge, start with you, start with your thinking, start with some tiny bit of inspired action.

Do it, do it for yourself, do it for your sanity, do it for your dream life, just do it.

It’s your life, go get it.

Year of the Monkey 2016

Thank you Lisa……

Metaphysical Attraction

byeongsinnyeon-1137035_1280

Today is Chinese New Year so I want to wish you a prosperous year with health and happiness. It is the Year of the Fire Monkey which for me symbolises a time to jump in and kickstart ventures that have been on the horizon for a while. It seems that this is the year for it.

It is also a good opportunity to let go of anything that no longer serves you. As you lighten the load it makes that jump far easier and helps to bring a new perspective to things you may not have seen before.

When I think of the monkey, I think about how life can go many ways depending on the choices we make. We could end up slipping on the bananas so to speak which I’m sure many can relate to at some point in their lives or we can eat some of the…

33 Rules of the Billionaire Mindset

the billionaire scriptures

The Billionaire Scriptures

I have studied an infinite amount of books, videos, seminars, magazines, article and success principles on the dreams, desires, successes and failures of the avid Billionaire and I have taken this in depth learning and compacted it into my very own 33 rules and called this “The Billionaire Scriptures”.  I am not a Billionaire “yet” but I do know that I am on my way and by practising the following set of rules, I know it will lead me to greatness and so much more. Below is my own set of THE BILLIONAIRE SCRIPTURES:

The 33 Rules of the Get Rich Billionaire Mindset

  1. Do not exchange time for money.
  2. Do not work for another company full-time i.e. 9-5 Monday to Friday.
  3. Pay yourself first, put a portion of your money into a pension fund.
  4. Create value in relation to what people need and provide a solution to their problem or indeed something they find useful.
  5. Give, give, give….then ask and give yourself permission to receive, abundantly.
  6. Focus on your health and wellbeing, no amount of money is of more value than your healthy, working body.
  7. Own your own business ensuring you create a valuable service or product – review what is working, put more energy into that and reinvent or remove what is not working. Put more energy into what IS working for you.
  8. Read books of value, educate yourself, challenge your mind, success leaves clues, read every day and implement what you learn into your own life and business.
  9. Spend less than you earn.
  10. Make life easier for you, relocate to a better working environment, share where necessary, do as much as you can of what you love, find and act on ways that will earn you money from dong what you love – i.e. how this can create value to others.
  11. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket, work towards having multiple streams of income from various sources.
  12. Don’t keep all your money in one bank account, spread your money out between several bank accounts to ensure you can access your money at anytime.
  13. Learn new skills, build up your knowledge and use this new learning to add and create more value to your own businesses.
  14. Go for a walk, get out in nature, breathe in the fresh air, let the sun shine on your face, free your mind from everyday stresses and worries.
  15. Take time to pray and ask for what you want and be grateful in advance for receiving what you have asked for.
  16. Believe in yourself, just believe in you and others will believe in you.
  17. Have faith in the mystery of the unknown – just when you think all is over, having the deepest faith in yourself will lead the way to a better and more prosperous life.
  18. Visualise the end result that you want, see yourself there, everyday take time to feel the feelings of having what you want right now in your life – always see yourself living, breathing and enjoying the end result that you want to create for yourself.
  19. Share your knowledge with others, help others to learn from your successes and indeed your failures, don’t force your knowledge on someone, share it in a way that they attract it wilfully into their lives.
  20. Create a living environment that is conducive towards you achieving your goals, ensure that it is a haven for building strong foundations to build your dreams, to enable you to do the work and give laser focus to what needs to be done.
  21. If you don’t know how to do it, read a book on it – there are books on everything, whatever you want to build your knowledge on, read, read, read, learn, learn, learn and apply, apply, apply.
  22. Stay as grateful and as happy as you can in every moment of every day, this may seem tough when life is even tougher but believe me, there is always something for you to be grateful for and this in turn will increase your moment to moment happiness. Be grateful, you have such a lot.
  23. Stay strong, you are much more stronger than you think, you are much more capable that you believe, you are a walking miracle and your dreams are there for the taking, be persistent, be consistent and keep taking baby steps, which will inevitably lead you to your success – IT WILL!!
  24. Keep an open mind, never think you know it all, never judge others, never play a win/lose game, always, go for a WIN, WIN, WIN and you will always surely WIN.
  25. Create internal strategies to deal with difficult times ahead, be prepared for tough days but also prepare for your successes, prepare for your big celebrations and see yourself celebrating your successes with your loved ones.
  26. Be kind, be forgiving and be gentle on yourself and do what you can with what you’ve got, where you are.
  27. Put yourself out there, be proactive and go get your life!!
  28. Don’t wait, don’t wait on anyone or anything, if someone wants to be in your life, they will be…..period – don’t wait, move on with your life, move on and focus on the end result of what you want to achieve.
  29. Take note of how far you have come, give yourself praise for starting, for doing, for dreaming, for believing, for going for it, be proud of each baby step that you take and don’t look for anyone’s approval but your own. Do this for you.
  30. Encourage and support others, empower others with what you do, be a role model of success for others around you and give back where you can…..give before you receive.
  31. Let go of what is not serving you, people, thinking, environments, choices – make everyday decisions that will support you and your goals, only you can make this choice for you.
  32. Do what you need to do, don’t care what other people think, that’s not your business, focus on you, focus on a better life, focus on what you want more of in your life – what do you want more of?
  33. This is your time, it’s your life – now go get it – believe that, BELIEVE.

Change is Opportunity Now Change is Opportunity Now

An Exciting Challenge

I was on the phone to my business partner Debbie and we were talking about ‘change’, for me ‘change is opportunity’.  Why do I say this?  Well as much as some of us might dread the thought of change, I absolutely love it and find it an exciting challenge.  I don’t want to sit in my ‘comfort zone’ all my life, it is important for me to get out there, embrace new challenges and live life.  If I fail, well…

I love this quote below by Walt Disney, “If you can dream it, you can do it.” –  it says it all to me really.  My sister brought me this little bag back from her travels in America this year, she said when she seen it, she thought of me instantly, she said “I just had to get it for you”.  It is a real pleasure to share that with you today.  Love Clarabelle

What is Desired and Why?

Why do you desire what you desire?…..

Kreative Inspirations

What do you desire? Why do you desire what you desire? These questions I asked myself today.

Why did I do that? I did this because I wanted to become clear about the emotional experiences I desire, which can be found at the root of why something is desired.

What did I learn? I made a list of the desires I currently have. There were three things I wrote. And from those three things, answering why produced 24 different emotional experiences at the root. While spending time in silent ponder and examination a brilliant idea came to me.

Emotions can be experienced with or without the physical manifestation of desire that is believed to be capable of providing particular emotional experiences. This is done by focusing upon the emotion and embracing the vibration of it. Like vibrations and experiences of like vibrations are drawn to that…

Be Brave, Chase the Great Life

Be Brave, Chase the Great Life

Brave steps of change can be a little daunting at times, however, you must think of the positives, you must stay focussed on all the great things that change can bring.

Yes, change can be a little scary but sometimes the more you over analyse, the more you want to stay in your comfort zone. Surely a great life can only be achieved with brave change, ambitious desire and deep faith in your heart that you are most definitely doing the right thing?

When you feel driven, when you feel responsible for making your life a great life……then you will take the plunge and what if everything does go your way….what if?  Wouldn’t that just be a great GREAT life for you.

What Can You Influence?

Where is Your Focus?

You may have many concerns at the moment, concerns that are weighing you down and getting in the way of you moving forward with your life.  I want you to think about where your focus is at. Think about this – are you focussing on what you can influence in your life or are you focussing on what is out of your control?  If you are focussing on the latter, I want you to change that thinking to thinking about what you can influence right now in your life?  Go on, take  a pen and a piece of paper and jot it down, write down all the things in your life right now that you can influence and then choose one or two to action today.

I know you will feel so much better when you drop the concerns you can’t do anything about and start to focus and put your energy into the things you can influence.

What are you concerned about?  What out of those concerns can you influence and then leave the rest for someone else to worry about, as long as it’s not you.

Just some food for thought to help you on your way today.

Inspiration

The late Mr Stephen R. Covey who wrote one of my most favourite books “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People”, spoke about leaving a legacy and he certainly did. Well, I do honestly believe that through my creative expressions on this blog and all the songs I have written from the heart, my legacy lies before me.  My Sister’s children (my beautiful nieces and nephew) and their children and their children and so on can have access to all my writings here on this blog……and I trust that it will inspire them to lead a fulfilling life and inspire others along the way.

Things Not Moving Fast Enough For You?

Things not moving fast enough for you? Then I guess the Universe feels you’re not quite ready yet for the amazing success that is chapping at your door.

“But I’m ready to answer, right now” I hear you say. Well what are you going to do about it? What?

You know there is always something you can do, I know you know that. Go on then answer, but please make sure you open the right door.

“How will I know?”

Because it’s the one that you are most excited about opening, the one that makes you truly come alive inside…….yes, that’s the door you must open.

Open the door to your dreams.

One Year On

Clarabelle Logo

Happy Birthday Blog 🙂

Today, I celebrate the birthday of this blog, it is one year old today.  I love putting my heart, soul, passion and energy into this blog and I feel it is evolving as I am evolving.

Inner Growth

I didn’t plan to do this blog, it wasn’t one of my goals but I do remember the day, one year ago, when I decided to set it up here on wordpress.  Prior to that, I had been writing lots and lots of poetry and I was gaining so much inner growth and special connection from my creative self expressions.  Something just clicked with me that day, on 20 April 2012, there was a heightened moment of realisation, a momentary illumination of the heart, that I should share my poetry and other creative expressions on a blog.  I just felt there was this strong inner calling to do that – so I did, I acted on it straight away, with no hesitation, it was a very enlightened experience indeed.

The Story of My Life

It was the right thing to do, this blog is part of me now, it’s the story of my life, the sharing of my secrets, it demonstrates the strength in my vulnerability and the love in my heart.  It has been soul baring, deeply moving and heartwarming at times, I have shared poetic reflections that I used to only whisper to my shadow.  This blog is about who I am and what I am becoming but I know I would not get the same fulfillment, deepest gratitude and satisfaction from it, if it wasn’t connecting with other souls – it has to inspire hearts – it has to help YOU to evolve and advance too.  

I want for you what I want for myself and that is to truly live life, to truly love life, to be who you are, to answer your inner calling, to shape the right way forward for yourself in alignment with your values, to have peace and knowing in your heart that you are all that you ever need to be, to have faith and trust in your ability to use your creative imagination to advance you forward in life and attract a never ending abundance of all that you have ever wanted.  You are on the path to personal evolution, you never came off it, it’s time now to enjoy the scenery and truly live in this moment now……..as I write this, I hear the birds singing outside – in the beauty and gratitude of each precious moment the miracle of life right now will always give us what we need.

Go create with pure passion in your heart, for the tide of opportunity wants you to surf its waves and refresh the soul of the deepest oceans.

Thank you for reading my posts, I truly mean that from the core of my heart.

Much love to you today, Clarabelle

What is a Talent?

Strengths Finder 2.0 by Tom Rath
Know your strengths

I would like to recommend a book to you today, it is called Strengths Finder 2.0 by Tom Rath, Tom is also a New York Times Bestselling Author of the book “Wellbeing”.  

I really love the Strengths Finder book because it helps you to identify what your top 5 strengths/talents are and provides you with a 19 page individualised report which coaches you into thinking how you can utilise your strengths more in your everyday life and work.

My top 5 strengths are:

1.  Futuristic – People who are especially talented in the Futuristic theme are inspired by the future and what could be. They inspire others with their visions of the future.

2.  Maximiser – People who are especially talented in the Maximiser theme focus on strengths as a way to stimulate personal and group excellence. They seek to transform something strong into something superb.

3.  Positivity – People who are especially talented in the Positivity theme have an enthusiasm that is contagious.  They are upbeat and can get others excited about what they are going to do.

4.  Woo – People who are especially talented in the Woo theme love the challenge of meeting new people and winning them over. They derive satisfaction from breaking the ice and making a connection with another person.

5.  Strategic –  People who are especially talented in the Strategic theme create alternative ways to proceed. Faced with any given scenario, they can quickly spot the relevant patterns and issues.

The following poem is also inspired by the above, I do hope you like it.

What is a Talent?

What is a talent?  What is a strength?

How is it measured?  What is its length?

Only you, can experience the feelings,

Passionate moments, purposeful healings.

Recognise this quality, treasure it well,

Captivating hearts, like a magical spell.

Your audience awaits, imagination is high,

A hypnotic transcendence, go on just fly.

Below is a post taken from an older blog of mine…..I don’t use this blog any more however I feel some of the more empowering posts from it would be really good to share on here.  This post was originally written in 2009, I hope it makes you think a little differently.  Go for your goals today.  Love Clarabelle.

Success Leaves Clues
Success Leaves Clues

Today, I was at the beach watching a little girl chase her father’s remote controlled car around in circles. She kept jumping forward and falling on her knees in an effort to catch the car as it skidded by. She did this 31 times and failed. But on attempt number 32, she caught the car. [Makes Me Think (MMT), Marc and Angel]

Clarabelle’s thoughts…..

If only as adults we were sometimes as brave and determined as that young child and then maybe our fear of failure would not inhibit us from our most greatest life successes. How many times have we as adults only have had to fail once and then we never try or do again? What made that little girl not give up after the first time? I think for sure she was enjoying the journey of her learning experience and having lots of fun, fun, fun with her father. I also think she did not care about what anybody else thought. She had no negative thoughts in her mind preventing her from continuing and no limiting beliefs blocking her path. She sounded excited, happy and free to never give up—even after 31 times.

What have you prevented yourself from doing after falling at the first hurdle?

What would it mean for you to get back up, stand tall, be confident and embrace the opportunities that lie ahead?

Surely in every failure there is a lesson to be learned and by applying the lessons second or third time around maybe, just maybe, your outcome would be different every time, and every time I bet you would get closer to your goal.(Claire Murray)

Change is Opportunity NOW

Go Get It!!

This is a post I wrote for another business blog in 2011, I came across it today and thought I would share it with you, there may be some value in it for you and please feel free to share away.  I wish you a day filled with opportunities for the taking, it’s your life, go get it!!  Clarabelle. 

Change is Opportunity Now

An Exciting Challenge

I was on the phone to my business partner Debbie and we were talking about ‘change’, for me ‘change is opportunity’.  Why do I say this?  Well as much as some of us might dread the thought of change, I absolutely love it and find it an exciting challenge.  I don’t want to sit in my ‘comfort zone’ all my life, it is important for me to get out there, embrace new challenges and live life.  If I fail, well I feel I have only learned some great lessons that will strengthen me as a person.

I was sent this wonderful quote last night by my friend Stephen, “if we never fail at anything we are not being adventurous enough” by Peter Huntley, MD of Go North East buses, what a truly wonderful quote that is.  I would rather try and fail 1000 times than not try at all.  Determination, persistence, passion, consistency, self-discipline and never giving up is the qualities that I feel will get me everywhere. We all know the famous saying ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’ so I would also throw in some ‘love and patience’ to this amazing mix of ingredients.

What I would say however is that to make change happen you need to know exactly your answers to the following questions:

  • Where you are going?
  • What do you specifically want to achieve?
  • What is your life’s purpose?
  • What do you need to be, do and have to get there?
  • What activities can you take action on NOW that will have the greatest impact on moving you forward towards your change goal?

Change is a choice and once you make that full commitment to change anything in your life you must take ‘MASSIVE ACTION’ to initiate the process.     When you start taking meaningful action towards your change goal you will get more and more motivated by the results you start to see – the fruits of your labour.

To change effectively and for the long term you must start at the core, with the root “the roots determine the fruits”.  That means change the way you think, which will change the way you feel and ultimately this will change your behaviours and it is in what you do that will help you get real results.

So make that decision today, challenge yourself,  be open, flexible and adaptable to change, welcome it with open arms and express who you really are because the only constant in life is change and if you stand still, I believe you are actually going backwards, as others make changes to drive ahead they will most definitely overtake you – so don’t be left for dust, change is opportunity NOW!!
