This really big but little word.. Success (poem)

Success

If you want a thing bad enough,
To go out and fight for it,
Work day and night for it,
Give up your time and your peace and sleep for it

If only desire of it
Makes you quite mad enough
Never to tire of it,
makes you hold all other things tawdry and cheap for it.

If like seems all empty and useless without it.
And all that you scheme and dream is about it.

If gladly you’ll sweat for it.
Fret for it, Plan for it,
Lose all your terror of God for it.

If you simply go after that thing that you want.
With all your capacity,
Strength and sargacity,
Faith, hope and confidence, stern pertinacity.

If neither cold, famished and gaunt,
Nor sickness nor pain,
of body or brain,
Can turn you away from the thing that you want.

If dogged and grim you besiege and beset it,
You’ll get it!

– Burton Braley

Beliefs = Your Control Factory

Someone said to have an “effective blog” you should keep your posts short because no one wants to read on and on no matter how interesting your post is…this is a BELIEF. It  may or may not be your belief. But, it’s “someone’s”.

When I first became interested in the power of a person’s belief or beliefs, I was astonished at how much information was out there about how incredibly powerful beliefs are! They truly control every persons actions. Obviously there is way too much info to get into on this one post about just how crazy powerful your beliefs are in the fact of where you are right now in your life and where you will be in terms of successes and failures in your future.

“So dream a dream you’d want to live, For everything could be yours, If only you believe.”

BOOM! Do you get the power in that statement?! How amazing is it that we have the absolute power to direct our lives by there sheer means of what we chose belief or what we are willing to change our beliefs to?!

I got permission from Randy Gage to share with a video he made which I BELIEVE came to me (and many others who needed the information) because it was time for me to see it, and if you are reading this, I’m sure it is your time to see it too on how to turn HOPE into BELIEF!

Are you hearing what he is saying? You can’t just say you want something and hope it comes along, can you? No! You have to believe it, REALLY believe it that whatever it is you want WILL come along…and it will! Take some of his tips and put them to work today! Find someone who has the life you want. TIP: Make sure you know EVERYTHING you possibly can about their real lives before you chose that mentor or you may end up with..oh..”be careful what you wish for” tugging on your shirt!

Now, here is ANOTHER video I want you to watch by Bob Proctor about beliefs and how they helped him and how he changed his beliefs to obtain the lifestyle he wanted and DESERVED to live:

“Our belief system is based on our evaluation of something. And frequently if we re-evaluate a situation, our belief about that situation will change.”

Read that again…are hearing this? If you aren’t getting what you want in your life it’s time you start re-evaluating your beliefs and let go of the labels that you believe are holding you back from the life you DESERVE, (whether it’s Autism, ADHD, ODD, Stupid, ugly,lazy..ANY negative or destructive label)  you have placed upon yourself or allowed others to place on you and in return have CHOSEN to believe them and replace them with POSITIVE ones (Intelligent, creative, successful, attractive, funny, likable, desirable, sexy,smart) do you get this?! Listen to what Scott Wimberly has to say about this:

As far back as I can remember I have believed that I was meant to help people. I had no idea how I was going to help them, no way at all. I was a kid, on my own, and left to my own resources most of my developmental years. Helped me become who I am today! There came a time when I was in a very serious auto accident which happened to start my path toward helping others on a very personal level. Although my path of helping others has changed in the way I was able to issue it but, I still stand by my belief that I am on this Earth to help people in a positive way which will empower them to put their thoughts into actions and change their beliefs ( if they need to) or enhance their beliefs ( if they need to) in order for them to live this ever so wonderful life they are meant to be living!

I close out this blog with a very short video that was created for the Major League Soccer team RSL (Real Salt Lake ) by Branden Steineckert, but I choose to say “RSL” for me stands for “Real Successful Life”! Everyday you are faced with what some see as a battle, some choose to view it as a blessing. It is YOUR life no matter how you choose to see it. 

“If you believe then just stand up on your feet, and shout it loud, REAL!”

Here are the words:”IF YOU BELIEVE THEN JUST STAND UP ON YOUR FEET AND SHOUT IT LOUD REAL!HERE AT THE RIOT THE BATTLE HYMNS BEGUN.WE’RE HERE FOR RSL!”

 

I’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback.

 

Special thanks to Randy Gage, Bob Proctor, Scott Wimberly, and Branden Steineckert, and YOU for taking the time to read this blog post that went “on and on” 😉

 

Be your own Superhero, time to BRAVE UP!

As many of you know, some of my blog posts come from people asking me questions and I use this as a way to communicate back to not just them, but others who may have the same questions too.

Recently I was asked from a friend, if there was something, anything, that I could be rid of in my life (they asked it differently but they are doing their own research so I am rephrasing it), what would it be? It didn’t take me long to think about and come to what the “one thing” would be. “My fear of success”. One thing I know about this that I am not alone.

Image

 

People often fear the change that success will bring, not success itself. Pay attention to your fearful thoughts and reset them by eliminating the words “don’t,” “not,'” and “no” and setting forth thoughts of what you do want instead. 

That is a quote by Michael Losier. Think about it, it’s true. We don’t really fear being successful, we WANT to be successful. What we fear is being uncomfortable because of the changes our success may bring. I literally thought about this for 2 hours last night and wrote about it in my journal. The simple 2 column list of the positives and negatives of changes that could possibly happen when i reach that success level I am striving for. Sounds silly, right?

A great attitude is not the result of success; success is the result of a great attitude. -Earl Nightingale

Allow me to share with you:

Pro’s:  Ability to help more people, Recognition, Validation, Trust, Proof of knowledge, Access to more resources and resourceful people, Increase in income, Opportunity to grow, making new “successful” friends.

Con’s– Venturing into new uncharted areas, insecurities of living up to others’ expectations, losing friends, fear of failure or falling short, uncertainty, being criticized and judged.

The more I looked at these two columns, the more something came very clear. One was first we must decide and define what we consider to be success or successful. I brought out some of my favorite personal development books and re-read some of my favorite quotes about success and goal setting. And it isn’t fear of success that I need to rid myself of. Success happens every day of our lives if we stay focused on our daily goals, weekly goals, monthly, quarterly, annual goals.

For me, if every single day I can help someone or improve the quality of life for just one individual, I consider myself “successful”. If I hold up to my promises to be the best person I can be and to role model and inspire others, I am successful. When I had responded to my friend this is what I had said when she asked what I needed to do to get past it.

“Accept that failure is part of the process of success and not an actual “failure” as far as an end, and to get it solid as a belief that I deserve it.”

Can you identify the REAL issue I was forced to face? 

Sometimes the battles that we fight aren’t external but most often they are internal and in the form of our beliefs. These can be the toughest battles of all and when you take these battles on, there is no one that can fight them than your own internal Superhero. For only you have the power to change your beliefs.

Thank you for reading and please like comment and share if you think post may help someone you know or someone you know may know.

Till next time, keep on Lovin’ Life!

“How long do you keep at it?”

 I was conversing with a client the other day who has been having successes but has also fell a few times in her fitness and healthy eating. She asked me, ” How long do you keep going?” I asked her to go into more detail about what she was talking about. I thought she meant, how long should she keep trying to get better with her goals but that wasn’t her question at all. “How long do you keep at it? I mean, how long are you going to stick with me before you give up on me too?” The question totally caught me off guard. The thought of giving up on her never once crossed my mind, never.

My response, “As long as you don’t quit on you, I won’t quit on you.” The good Personal Trainers and Coaches don’t abandon their clients and their clients goals. They stick with them, Find what works for them. Make adjustments as necessary and keep moving forward. The goal is to get them where they want to be and teach them how to maintain their results. They need to have trust in you and confidence that you are looking out for their own good..not just taking their money.

 

Active Military Members- WE WANT (to help) YOU, and your families!

Aside

Good afternoon! Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!

My name is Jenni Whipple and as you know if you read this blog or are a member of our Facebook Fan page, (www.facebook.com/jenniwhipple), I am a health and fitness fanatic! I genuinely care about people and their health, and there is NOTHING that makes me feel better than helping people reach their health and fitness goals or improve their health so they can live a better, healthier, happier life!

While I enjoy helping people this way, and understand that weights, cardio, and nutrition are KEY elements for desired results, the fact is, some people just don’t have the money, the time, or the schedule which allows them to get to the gym and workout or pay $35-$60/hr OR MORE for individual sessions with a Personal Trainer. This is one of the main reasons I teamed up with Beachbody and the professionals on Team Beachbody.

Image

I can still provide fitness and nutrition along with support on my clients schedule…even if they work odd scheduled hours and it allows me to help ANYONE because the programs offered are VERY cost effective and the programs are proven to work!

Chris..Before and After!

I am also leading he charge in the fight against obesity by pledging to help get military families fit and “joining forces” with ACE (American Council on Exercise) Certified Personal Trainers, ” Our goal is to pledge 1 million fitness training service hours to enrich the quality of life of our service members and their families, and help expand their access to fitness resources and programs. We are confident that with your help we can meet this overarching objective!”

 

As you can see, by being a Team Beachbody Coach, this creates an amazing opportunity to help those military families access to additional fitness resources. By being a Beachbody Coach I don’t have to worry about the over head costs or rent of a facility, or travel issues to and from where my clients want to workout. It is convenient for myself, yes! BUT it is also VERY convenient to YOU, my client and your family!

If I haven’t mentioned yet…I strongly recommend getting yourself healthy but also get the rest of your family involved! Have them to the exercises with you, learn and teach them what you are learning! This is how the epidemic is halted! How can anyone NOT see this as an exciting opportunity?!

I believe what makes it a little “more special” to myself is the fact that my Step-Father, my Father-In-Law, my Husband, and my Brother are all military veterans. I, unfortunately, was not allowed into the military due to “moderate hearing loss” in my left ear when I attempted to enlist in the Air Force. Regardless…I am still part of a military family, and this allows me to help those who are also military or in a military family! That, is a GREAT feeling!

We are all aware Father’s Day is coming up, but, not only “Fathers” are in our military..regardless of what upcoming holiday may be approaching, why not just say, “I Care!” to your loved one or family member? To me, it is those unexpected gifts for no real holiday that means the most to me, those surprise gifts.

As a way of saying, “Thank you!” to our active military personnel, if you’re Active Duty Military your Start up fee of $39.95 is waived AND your monthly back-office fees of $14.95 are ALL waived for the entire duration of your active-duty!

Not a soldier? Well think about this – how many soldiers do you know though, who would be interested in Free Beachbody Coaching for Active Duty Military?

This is a great way to earn some extra money promoting our top-notch line of proven fitness, weight loss, and nutritional products – PLUS you receive a 25% discount on all Beachbody product purchases. Enjoy the following programs at a significant discount: P90x, Insanity, TurboFire, or the new P90x2, Asylum, or Body Beast bodybuilding program coming out soon!

Worried about shipping? Team Beachbody ships to APO/FPO!

Not sure if this is the business for you, or maybe you’re too busy saving the country to ‘work the business’ aspect – that’s completely understood – THAT IS WHY the “Free Beachbody Coaching for Active Military” offer is extended to your spouse as well. There are military wives earning thousands per month as Beachbody coaches, marketing it to other Military wives.

Image

I think it’s an honorable thing that Beachbody is doing for servicemen and women and their families. I can’t think of anything better than providing a solid income opportunity for soldiers and their spouses so that they can come home from saving our country and manage their own successful business.

We want to help keep you and your family, as healthy as we can…and we want to Thank you and your family for your sacrifices!

If you are interested, please contact me through my Fan Page listed above or click on the picture below. We WANT you to be successful and your CAN start a career with Beachbody!
