Ep. 125: CYL Week 23-For or Against

Our brains are powerful, and that’s something we can probably all agree upon without much thought. Yet we want you to think about it deeper. Think about how your brain puts every piece of information it encounters through a filter, and that filter is how you see the world.

Do you see the world as an abundant, kind, and loving place? If you do, then every piece of information you encounter is seen through that abundant, loving, and kind filter. Everything that happens to you is “FOR” you and for your own good. On the other hand, if your filter is based on lack, competition, and fear that is how you will see the world. The world will appear to be “AGAINST” you.

This episode of Live Out Loud Mondays is focused on examining your personal filter, seeing how it affects your life, and giving you the top tool to shift you filter to be more optimistic and seeing just how much the world is FOR you.

“Do you plan on life working for you or against you? Do you anticipate people liking you or disliking you? Do you expect life to be easy or hard? We all a have basic filtering system that either anticipates good or repels good. If you are bent on seeing things from a negative point of view, your filtering system will find a way to make that a reality regarding any situation. That also works for a positive frame of mind. Either way, you win! Rhonda Britten, Change your Life in 30 Days. (The following questions are also taken from Change your Life in 30 Days.)

  • Think of the last time you thought the world was against you. I challenge you to find the gratitude inherent within the problem itself. Fill in the blank: Today I am grateful for __________________________.
  • Now think of four more gratitudes. Making a practice of doing five gratitudes each day is optimum. And of course, the objective is to think of a gratitude anytime you feel the universe is against you.

Today, be grateful.

  1. List three moments in your life where you felt like the world was for you.
  2. List three moments when you felt the world was against you.
  3. Please write a gratitude for each of the above moments.
  4. If the world was for you every minute of every day, how would your life be changed?

“Rejection is going to happen because all of us have varying opinions, values, and beliefs. When someone is supposedly rejecting you, it is not you they are rejecting.

(The following questions are also taken from Change your Life in 30 Days.)

Ep. 123: CYL Week 21-Luck, Fate, and Destiny

Luck, fate, and destiny are words that take your ability to be proactive and make a difference out of the mix.  With luck you are an innocent bystander; fate happens to you; and destiny is preordained, giving you no power to change it.

Today the Live Out Loud ladies will discuss giving up luck, fate, and destiny, putting them aside and putting yourself in the forefront.  It is time to count on yourself and create your own future rather than allowing something outside of yourself to determine your results.

“Learning to forgive yourself for the ways you put yourself last will help you put the past behind you. If you can’t forgive yourself, the likelihood of you achieving clarity is reduced. Forgiveness provides clarity and clarity encourages insights and that supports a change in behavior.” Rhonda Britten, Change your Life in 30 Days. (The following questions are also taken from Change your Life in 30 Days.)

Today, forgive.

  1. Who do you blame for any of your problems or difficulties?

Ep. 120: CYL Week 18-Intuition

Intuition will tell you the difference between what you should do and what you are meant to do.  Your intuition is here to guide you to fulfill your potential, to be true to yourself above all else.  When you are willing to live in the unknown, intuition can be heard.  When you are willing to be wrong about everything, intuition gets clear.  When you are judging less and loving more, intuition feels like it is coming directly from within you.  Join us to explore the voice of intuition as the pathway to being true to yourself.

“My intuition is not based on logic or even my heart. When I ask my intuition for an answer I am getting input from a source unseen that is bigger than my perceptions. You can call your intution the voice of God or Allah or Universal Energy. It doesn’t matter what it is called, it works the same regardless. Your intuition is here to guide you to fulfill your potential, to be true to yourself above all else.” Rhonda Britten, Change your Life in 30 Days. (The following questions are also taken from Change your Life in 30 Days.)

  • What is a decision you must make today?
  • List your top three answers for this decision.

Today, listen to your intuition:

  1. Describe the difference between the voice of fear and your intuition.
  2. When was the last time you heard your intuition?

BONUS EXERCISE: For the next 24 hours, list all the times you listen to your intuition. It may be once or twice or not at all. The number doesn’t matter.

Ep. 119: CYL Week 17-Excuses

JOIN US — 9am CT, Monday, June 2nd

We all have excuses. It’s even natural to build evidence to prove the reality of our excuses. However, excuses keep us from our true selves. There just never seems to be enough … (time, money, energy, etc.) to really get ahead and make things happen. Excuses keep us in our comfort zone, so we don’t have to take risks to reach our dreams. 

In order to move past our excuses, we must face them. We must take back our power and decide what is an excuse and what is truly valid. Which excuses are runing your life? Identifying excuses will help you separate your true self from your fearful self. Join us as we continue through Rhonda Britten’s Change Your Life in 30 Days, discussing how to leave our excuses behind and become more Fearless!

Ep. 117: CYL Week 15-Trusting Heart

Trusting yourself means you are willing to act on what your hear when you listen to your own wise council within.  Are you willing to trust your intuition and take action on those promptings?  Are you willing to believe yourself, your voice, your light?

Trust is the main ingredient to peace of mind.  Trust is sacred.  Honor your inner voice.  Listen.  Trust happens when you are true to yourself.

“We must be willing to forgive. Forgiveness is necessary in mending broken trust.

Day of Trust

  • How would your life be different if you trusted yourself?
  • What are your criteria for trusting another? What actions do they take that garner your trust? For example: Do they call when they say the will? Do they follow through when a promise is made?

  • Today, practice trusting yourself: List any moment of potential trust you have wiht yourself or another. Rate yourself on a scale of 1-5 (5 indicating the highest level of trust). Pay attention to whether feelings or behavior dictate trust.
