I'm Reclaiming my Personal Power Again for 2014
by Helene Malmsio
(Maryborough, Vic - for the time being)
I will create a vision board for 2014
Well, here we go again, New Year means planning for a New You!
Actually, my life is pretty comfortable and secure right now, because that is what I planned and worked for to achieve over the past 20 years.
Right now, Jan 1 2014, I live in a small rural community, after making a 'Tree Change' lifestyle choice in 1993 to leave Melbourne metropolis.
It suited my needs and goals at that time, and I thought that 'life in the country' was supposed to be lovely and friendly, but now I am dealing with some unexpected challenges of a family member - and he not only needs my help to sort this out, he probably also needs a new place to live, in a more cosmopolitan culture and not so backward and unfriendly.
So since he feels that we are joined at the hip, it means that I will be looking to sell up my properties, and move back to the city, and save toward being able to afford the much more expensive retirement accommodation that he will be needing soon - and that I might as well get into early so that I'm also set up to really relax and take advantage of a lifestyle with services available to me up the kazoo, whenever I want them.
I am a smart, strong, powerful woman, who gets shit DONE!
I know that what I set in motion with my planning this month, WILL eventuate, materialize, come into motion.
That is what life is about... think it, want it, prepare for it, believe it... and TAKE ACTION to bring it into reality.
How much action you put into it, and how passionate you are about it to stick to it and focus on it, is the key to how much success you experience.
In the next 30 days I'll talk in detail about the goals and actions I'm taking, but in this introduction, lets just mention some of the things I'll be working on:
I have been models slim most of my life (worked bloody hard for it too!) but nearly 15 years ago I was hit with a Thyroid problem and helplessly piled on a heap of fat before it was diagnosed and treated.
The past 10 years I have achieved 'just enough' of my weight management goals to be able to 'get by' with weight loss and to not put on more weight.
But this year, that is simply not enough any more! My Rheumatoid Arthritis and calcified tendon/s of 20+ years are now causing me constant, daily, never-relenting pain and grief.
So to reduce pain, I need to commit to reducing a massive amount of fat that these weary joints don't need to be hauling around. No excuses. It is now a MUST DO, not Want To, goal.
There are simple things I will do to help make this health goal happen, starting with:
Eat Smaller Portions
Choose More Raw Foods in Daily Meals
Drink More Water & Aloe Juice
Take My Herbalife Products Every Day
Reduce Tea/Caffeine and Milk/Dairy
Take Rest Breaks to reduce effects of CFS
BELIEVE that I will melt 1kilo/2pds of unhealthy fat every week for 35 weeks of the next 52 weeks of 2014.
With the new lifestyle changes, I will need to ramp up my consistent income. No one-hit-wonders here.
It needs to be a business model that is sustainable, and reasonably 'passive' in that once the project is done, it can run on its own legs most of the time - not requiring daily propping up or personal action.
A job is a great idea, except that my poor health makes me unemployable right now. I wouldn't give myself a job in a full-time role, that's for sure, so I don't expect anyone else to take that risk either.
This could well change by next year, when my health will be much improved from my actions this year, but for the time being, it means that I need to focus on online & WAH Entrepreneurship again to take my income to the next level.
Steps To Increase Income:
I already am a published author, with around 10 paperback and Kindle books on Amazon, and many more instructional how-to books published for sale on the site here.
In 2014 I intend to publish a heap of short KDP Kindle reports I have ready to format etc, plus another 3+ self help and management training paperback books, moving from the current list of health and wellbeing books.
They will also support my seminars on the subjects that I will be delivering free of charge to community organizations this year.
So I plan to not only publish more books for sale, but I also complete loading up my PLR articles stock to this site and getting my PLR content store fully stocked up and promoted.
I have some more digital product ideas that I want to work with as well, but once again that will depend on how many hours a day I can be productive!
As usual, I'll be working off my budgets and financial plans, and we should be able to stick to them and the only variable will be how well I can crank up the increased income.
I also want to Contribute to Community:
When Strategic Services was operating full blast I used to be able to donate $20,000 a year to local and international charitable organizations, but with my retirement this has obviously been cut back radically.
So my donations nowadays are much smaller and to fewer organization. It requires more creativity, and personal effort to contribute now.
This is more fun than just writing out cheques though!
Like last Christmas I made and donated a couple of gorgeous Teddy Bear Christmas Trees, and a dozen or so teddy bear gift box/baskets. They were given to local Community Center who gave them to people and raffled them off and whatever else they wanted to do with them.
It was fun to make them, and next year I think I'll do more gift baskets and crafts that I can donate again.
In 2014, apart from making donations, I will be delivering a series of seminars and structured skills training workshops, free of charge to various community organizations.
I have the training materials and workbooks ready, am publishing some books as back up reference guides, and have started talking to local groups about subjects and dates.
As always I will for ever be an Animal Rights Warrior:
I will continue to donate to WSPA and be an active campaigner for animal welfare and raising community awareness of issues they can act on to help improve animal conditions around the world.
And obviously, the welfare and care of my own furry babies will be foremost in my daily life and also for things like planning how the heck to include them all in our move to our new home in Melbourne when the time comes.
I really, really need to Eliminate Clutter:
One good thing about the upheaval this year, is that I have had to start dealing with 20+ years of accumulation.
I always felt that 'owning lots of stuff' was a sign of wealth and abundance, and that all that stuff made me feel secure and safe.
But after a while it can simply smother you, and all that stuff you needed years ago, that no longer serves your needs, just becomes dreaded clutter.
It becomes overwhelming. And this year I have removed truckloads and car loads of useful items from my home, either sold or donated.
It feels good, I am beginning to regain control of my home again. Lots more needs to go before my home is 'display ready' to put it on the market, but I'm looking forward to it.
And our new home/s will NOT be cluttered ever again.
And I especially want to build in some actions and activities to make sure that this year I HAVE MORE FUN IN 2014 and really start loving life again!
I'm absolutely exhausted from the misery and stress of the past couple of years, with all that ill health and misfortune in the family coming at us faster than we could duck!
So for 2014, I plan to be productive, profitable, healthy, and HAVE FUN AGAIN - how about you?
So to set these goals in ACTION, I'm doing my annual Tony Robbins Personal Power II coaching plan.
Next I will start to outline my daily actions and steps for the next 30 days.
Feel free to work along with me in getting your plan in place.
You don't need to have it, but the Personal Power II program really is the best coaching program I have ever worked with, and it changed my life for the better in 2000 and I go back to it every year!
If you don't already have his program (your really, really must invest in this!) you can check it out here:
OK. Now to get on with the action plan!
