I'm trying something new today. No pictures. Just words. No excess time spent crafting a perfectly pinnable image. Just solid inspiration from me to you. I stumbled upon the most amazing quote the other day. It said, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, The Dali Lama answered:

"Man sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived."

If that doesn't make you shiver in your boots, then you're either already totally awake or you're totally dumb. (#truthbomb)

The questions we must ask ourselves and the best takeaways I can suggest:

  1. Figure out what REALLY matters to you (What are you chasing? What do you crave?)
  2. Figure out what REALLY LIVING looks like for you (What LIGHTS you up?)

Spend some time contemplating these two questions and you're sure to experience a profound shift in your life.

The Next Book You Need To Read: MONEY- MASTER THE GAME

 Stop. Collaborate & Listen.

If I am being totally honest, you need to stop reading this post right now. Yea, that's right. You need to stop reading this post and start reading Tony Robbins new book about mastering the game of money. That is, only if you would like to be financially free.

I Wanna Be Rich

This might sound like the most naive statement in the history of ever. Or, does it? Maybe it sounds egotistical or just plain evil to you. But why is that? Not only will this book share amazing insider information about investing and help you FINALLY understanding what you need to do to be finically free, it will also challenge ALL of your beliefs about money.

What do you think about money? What do you think about people who have money? What does it really even mean to be rich?

Life Coach. Financial Wizard.

Look, of course I am going to love Tony's book. I'm a life coach, and Tony is a life coach (perhaps even the world's most recognized life coach!). But the way he weaves coaching and APPLICABLE financial strategy is like nothing else I've ever read.

Money Stories

We all have our own money stories we are swimming in. Most people will regurgitate their money stories and claim them to be "the truth!" But really, a story is just a thought you've thought often enough that it's become a belief. But what would you like to believe about money? What if you really could learn some easy-to-implement tactics from the best finical minds?

Why, OH Why?

Why do I share this book with you with such excitement, zest, and zeal? Do I get money when you buy it? Nope! No kickbacks around here. Amazon won't let Missourians use affiliate links, anymore, so that's out for me. THE REAL REASON I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOU TO LEARN THIS STUFF is because I love you and I want you to thrive. That's all!

Yours for a meaningful and expansive (and ABUNDANT!) life,

Sylvia

 

 

The Power of Proximity: The Who's and The What's of Choosing Expansive Surroundings

The Who's And What's of Expansive Surroundings

The Five People Theory

Perhaps you've heard about the vast importance of the five people you spend the most time with? The quote by famous businessman Jim Rohn says: "You are the average of the five people you spend most of your time with."  Yikes. Not sure how this rule works for me, with a 3 year old and 5 year old being in my top two slots...

Unsure how to take it from here, I've been thinking about how I could translate and broaden this theory...

Introducing... The Proximity Rule

While I do think it's important to understand the implications of WHO you spend your time with, I want to touch on the importance of ALL the other things we allow into our proximity. Alongside of the people we are with the most... there are oodles of things which fill our minds, senses, surroundings.

Thoughtless radio dialogues on our commute, crap cluttered on cabinets (at home and at work!), buzz feed lists on our laptops, cynical tweets on our phone, hugely unimportant updates on our Facebook feeds, and yet we hungrily, mindlessly go back for more...

"We are what we repeatedly do," said Aristotle.

 

Be Intentional

Our daily choices (and habits!) really do turn into reflections of our lives.

How do you fill your time? And when you do what you do...what are you really looking to get?

My life made a dramatic turn for the better since discovering podcasts like: Design Matters or The Tim Ferris Show. Listening to intelligent people have meaningful conversations is pretty much the cat's meow. Especially when you are a mostly-at-home mom growing the business of your dreams right beside a 7 foot tall pile of laundry at 10:30 pm on a Friday night.

Blogs like: Brain Pickings by Maria Popova and posts like 'Something for the Weekend' from Susannah Conway are enough to keep my brain and soul fed. I find myself clicking around on inspiring/intelligent links rather than drooling over pies & lies on Facebook or sexy-crude tweets on twitter. The little shifts make a huge difference.

Do what you do on purpose.

To each her (or his) own, of course! But adding a healthy dose of intention is the cure here. Do what you do on purpose. Be where you are on purpose. Fill your time and your space with things on purpose. Fill up your mind and your heart on purpose.

 

XO,
Sylvia
