Top 7 Quotes to Kick Start Your Day!!!

Everything should be made as simple as possible but not simpler“It is my belief that nearly any invented quotation, played with confidence, stands a good chance to deceive.”
~ Mark Twain, Following the Equator

Have You ever heard a sentence or a quote that was exactly what You needed to hear in that moment? Is there any constant aphorism You keep on repeating to Yourself like a mantra? If this is the case welcome to the CLUB!!

Steve, one of my mentor, always underline the importance of “feeding Your brain with the right stuff“. He constantly listen to quotes or audio that can empower him through the day. Quotations from ancient and present wisdom are one of the healthy food You can really give to Your brain.

…What is so powerful about inspiring quotations?

I believe that quotations have the great power to fit everyone’s Life situation. Every person can relate to each quote with a different meaning, the right meaning for that given moment.

mmm… but why spending time reading somebody else stuffs?

Good question! As I told You before is about feeding Your brain with Healthy thoughts. We are always listening and reading other people’s thoughts. Reading inspiring quotations means consciously choose which thought we are going to use in that moment.

interesting… but what are the benefits then?

I’ll answer quoting Brian Tracy, personal development guru, “You become what You think most of the time” .  Your thoughts shape who You are. How can a person be positive if constantly thinking negative thoughts? You got it!!

what? My thoughts shapes who am I? 

Yes!! Let me explain it better and follow the chain. Your thoughts shape Your emotions. Your emotions shape the state You are in. The state You a re in shape Your actions and performances. Your action and performances shape Your destiny and who You are.

That means that if change my thoughts I can change my destiny?

BINGO!!

So don’t waste time and let’s move to the Top 7 quotes that most inspired and are inspiring my Life.

Let’s get inspired!!

6 Steps to Change Perspective

“There are no facts, only interpretations.” 
― Friedrich Nietzsche.

What can You see in the image?

Look carefully…

Yes! Well Done!!

 This image is called the “Rubin’s cup” and it shows a big truth about the so called reality. In the image You can see either 2 faces or a cup, but You cannot see both at the same time.

…..What does it mean?….

It means that, our experiences, acquire different meanings depending from the perspective we are looking it from. Life is all about perspective. We can choose to see the 2 faces, or the cup; (a more common one) we can choose to see the glass half empty or half full.

…..So You are telling me that I can choose which meaning to give to each of my experiences?…

BINGOOOO!!!! This is it! Think about a rainy day. If You were planning a picnic with friends in a beautiful park, how do You feel about the rain? And how do You feel instead, about the rain, if You planned to spend a day relaxing at home, reading a book or watching a film? And how do You feel about the rain if You were a farmer and has been a very drought week?

….WOW!!! So… It is HOW I FEEL about something that gives the meaning to it!!!

BOOOM!!!! Yes again!! And this is a process You do it unconsciously to any given situation in Your Life. But the good news is that, having the awareness of how these stuffs work, You can consciously choose the meaning You are giving to Your reality, changing the emotional state You are in.

It sounds great!!…. But How can I do It?

The process is very simple and fun, and once You get used to it it will become automatic! I’ll guide You trough the 6 steps to change perspective!

Your Turn!!

  1. Step 1: EXPERIENCE: Think about a moment, a situation, or a challenge that You are currently facing. See it, hear it, feel it. How is it strong in a scale from 1 to 10?
  2. Step 2: AWARENESS: Then ask Yourself: What meaning AM I giving to this situation? How Is the meaning I’m giving to this situation serving me? What am I focusing on?
  3. Step 3: PERSPECTIVE: If I could change the meaning of this situation, which one could I choose? Which other meaning, that will serve me better, CAN I give to this situation? What else? What else? (be creative and see how many different meaning You can give to that situation)
  4.  Step 4: CHOICE: Now choose the meaning that serve You better and start creating the new story of the event based on it.
  5. Step 5: LESSON: Everything in Life happens for a reason. And the reason is that in any given event there is a lesson to learn for our physical, mental or spiritual development. Until we learn the lesson, other similar events will keep on recurring in our life, in order to help us fulfilling our purpose. This is the nature of KARMA. The last question is the reflection on the lesson presented in the event. Instead of asking “Why this always happen to me?” use smarter questions like: What was in it for me? What is the lesson I got to learn here? Knowing what I know now, what can I do next time? and now, be still, listen to your inner voice and pick the first world, image or sensation that comes up to You. Don’t judge it, because this Your lesson, given from Your Greatest Master.
  6. Step 6: ASSESSMENT: Now assess Yourself about the situation asking: In a scale from 1 to 10, how strong is my feeling towards that situation?  And measure Your progress from the first answer.

I’d love to hear from You and what do You think about the article.

The 1st day of a rising entrepreneur!

Hello dear followers!

It is fantastic to connect with you again!

Today is a great day, a day when a new rising entrepreneurial star is born!

Today Is my first day of self employment! It is the first step of the decision made a couple of weeks ago, where I committed myself that from that moment on, I’ll be my own boss, because I don’t need to have somebody to work for…. I can create what I want!!

Why I do it? I want to step into the possibilities of financial independence! I want to leave the life I’m dreaming, and invest my earning for my personal and for the human development. Once financially independent I can effortlessly contribute more to the society I want to co-create. A world where each individual has the power, the belief and the confidence to shine his own light, respecting the environment and the beauty of every Life.

How am I going to do it? I use the tools, the knowledge and the wisdom I have, to empower the light of each children, youths, adults. Like an alchemist, I facilitate the transformation and the growth of what is already good to something outstanding!

I’m so excited as I’m writing that a smile is now painted on my face!

I’d like now to share with you what I’ve learned through the day, what I’ve realised, what worked and what didn’t.

The first realisation was that I need to create a business plan, decide how many hours of my time and energy I’m going to invest weekly, which tools I’ll use, which media can help me in my mission and the strategies I’m going to adopt to make my business grow. Also after the seminar of tonight around marketing I realised that this a world I need to explore further and master.

The experience of working from home has been very meaningful. I felt immediately a sense of freedom and power that drove me through the day. And, on the other and, I felt also the burden of the increasing responsibility , that lead me to a feeling of overwhelm for all the necessary practicalities that will make my creation grow successfully. Also, looking at my bank account, the gremlin of “”OH MY GOD HOW AM I GOING TO PAY THE NEXT RENT” kicked in, which I calmed down with 10 min of EFT, creating in me a sense of power and abundance that replaced the negative feelings and the negative chatterbox.

Also I had to deal with a lack of time management, created from the frequent interruption created by checking Facebook, email, texts, phone calls and the frequent day dreaming.

But at the end of the day I managed to complete 7 of the 10 tasks that were important for me to achieve, with the aim to reach the target of 8 tomorrow.

Also the Kundalini Yoga session helped me to balance the drowsiness I’m experiencing in these days, due to the change of my sleeping pattern. One of my goal is to re-train myself to sleep 4,5h per night. Life is so juicy and there are so many experiences I want to enjoy, that I want more awaken time! And I’m aware that the tiredness I’m experiencing is part of the process, therefore I keep on going!!!!

At the end of this awaken time I can say that I feel tired, but happier and with the joy of my vision hold into my mind… I’M GONNA MAKE IT!! NO MATTER WHAT!!

I wish you all a good resting time and enlightening awakening!!

7 steps for Self Management

Ciao a tutti!!

I wish I’m finding you Well, Happy, Healthy and Abundant!!

(The following post has a lot of information and I decided to write in bold the key information )

Tonight’s post is about Self Management, a topic very broad that includes meaningful subgroups.

I’ll share with you what does it mean for me,  what I discovered about myself this afternoon, and a tool I used this afternoon to organise messy paperwork of 4 months of training, writing and reading.

Self Management: the art of focusing body and mind towards a specific task, controlling the useless information and achieving the aim in a pre-established time frame. i.e. The Art of Self Control.

The term Self Management is a big jigsaw, formed by 3 main pieces:

  1. Time Management: the ability to achieve in a determined time frame
  2. Mind Management: the ability to make friendship with the chatterbox
  3. Body Management: the ability to integrate sabotaging feelings

All the 3 main pieces are fundamental to complete the jigsaw of Self Management.

I’ll go in more details and I’ll share with you, in the next posts, the tools that has been more effective for me.

This afternoon, after a shining Kundalini Yoga class, and looking at the pile of sheets all over my room, I decide that was time to leave the visionary side of me for a while, stepping into the managerial one. With the aim of organising all the paper work and create an organised system that could support me in the future.

As soon as I sit down, surrounded by what seemed at the beginning a “Mission Impossible”, strong feelings of discomfort started arising in my chest, the same feelings and thoughts that in the past prevented me to manage my paperwork effectively. Maybe You have heard inside yourself that voice too: “I’ll do it tomorrow, for the moment I just want to relax…” “I can wait just 10 min more…” And then those 10 min, turned into tomorrow, days, weeks and months. Me and that voice are working really well together!!

This time was different, I decided take I was going to do it, no matter what.

  1. The first thing to do was to clear or at least lower the volume of the emotions and the beliefs that were leading me to a different direction.
  2. I worked on the feelings using EFT* for 30 min, and through muscle testing* I identified that I had, and probably still have the strong sabotaging belief that “I am a very disorganised person”.  Looking at my surroundings I wasn’t a surprise at all!!
  3. As soon as the feeling lowered the intensity, I installed the belief that I am an highly organised person, approaching the afternoon to come with a sense of joy, passion and ease, like it was the funniest task ever!
  4. I asked myself: “Which is the most effective and creative way in which I can store and organise all the paperwork?” 
  5. The answer that came to me was to divide all the sheets by category, without analysing them. Just separating them topic to topic.
  6. After it has been the time to identify which had to be reviewed.
  7. And finally store them in the appropriate folder.

So I sat on the floor, surround by the headers written in little sheets. I started placing every paper under the appropriate category, looking at which had to be reviewed and store them in their folder!

In 3 hours, all that seemed at the beginning a “Mission Impossible”, has been accomplished, and I’m so proud to my creative side for the tools that enabled me, with fun, to achieve my goal of the day!

I call this the 7  Self Management step model.

  1. Acknowledge the feeling.
  2. Recognise the correspondent limiting beliefs/ fears.
  3. Lower the Volume.
  4. Think specifically about what you want and ask the right question.
  5. Take inspiration. 
  6.  Use the right tool.  
  7. Celebrate!

I’ll post also the 7 step Overwhelm free tool (organise arrear paperwork).

I hope this will be useful for you has it has been for me!

Much Love to You all!!

May your life be always happy!!

The Power of Action

Hello Hello! Back again ready to write and rock!!

It has been another amazing day for me today. Full of meaning, lessons and joy. A day that flown on the vibrational waves of happiness. A day where I did all I wanted to do and how I wanted to do. Starting from the morning shift at Amico Bio, the peaceful meditation in the churchyard, the empowering session with Ben, the music session with Jonas and the wonderful dinner that my body enjoyed so much. I am really grateful for all the amazingness that I’m attracting in my life!!

So why am I feeling this way? Why, in the last 2 days, I attracted more potential clients than the last 3 months? Why everything seems to flow effortlessly?

The answer? 2 weeks ago I made a decision. A decision that was going to shape my life forever. A decision which I’m committed to honour. I decided that I wanted to be in control of my life, my time and my finances 100%. I decided that, from that moment on, I’ll just work for myself. Creating my own business, my own opportunities and not having to rely to somebody else. I decided that I’ll just follow my passions and align with my purpose.

It took me a while to realise it, even if I coach people to shine their light and create the life they want, I wasn’t ready yet to do it. I was driven by my subconscious fears of not being good enough, fear of failure, fear o fsuccede and others that I’m processing now. Actually it was 5 o’clock in the morning and I was on a sugar high after one of my night binge, listening to the audiobook “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”.  In the moment I decided that I wanted money to work for me, and that I would never work for money again.

And the morning came. The sun, was shining high on a clear blue sky. I took my bicycle, heading towards Amico Bio for my morning shift. Thinking about how much time I was spending at the restaurant, the money I was earning and how far I was from my purpose. I had almost completely neglected my social life, trying to keep up with the Coaching, my personal development and the working hours at the restaurant.

So I took the courage to quit my job at the restaurant. Even if I still love it and the people I work with, I decided to step into the uncertainty and embracing my fears. I realised and accepted this was not for me any more. This was belonging to another period of my life. And it was time to let go.

I have to tell  you that I was scared about how I’m going to have enough money to pay my bills, the food and my general expenses. But now, that I’m just 2 days from the last shift, a sense of drive and a greater motivation is running through me. A motivation coming from the compelling idea for the future ahead and for doing what I am here for.

I’m grateful to all that happened in the past, all the people, the experiences  the learnings. Even if they weren’t coming always from a gentle and juicy source. But now I see the value of all of them. They shaped who I am now… And to be sincere… I love it! I really love myself in the way I am!

This is a new beginning for me. New learnings and growth.

But when did all started?

From a decision, a decision to be the owner of my own life.

But a decision is not a step, is just half a step. How Many times I’ve made a decision that just remained so…

The real turning point was embracing and dancing with my fears and take action. The action of stepping into the uncertainty quitting my job.

To recap.

DECISION=1/2 STEP                              ACTION=1 STEP

DECISION+ACTION=1 and 1/2 STEP.

Sometimes I forget how far I can go just with a small, little step, not thinking about what that action can bring in my life.

I’m now fully committed to take action for the future I want!

I wish you all a future of greatness and a present of mindful action.

May life lead you where you want to go.

The power of Beliefs

Hello dears, I hope I’m finding you well and healthy today!

The topic of the day is the key discovery that me made decide to work as coach and the area of coaching that is most important for me.

Today I want to talk about beliefs.

Before we start I’d like to sharestory with you. The story about how I came across this life changing discovery that shaped my life forever.

It was a cold December night, almost 2 years ago. I couldn’t fall asleep that night. So I decided to watch videos on youtube and searching the web for something that could catch my focus. When, around 5 o’clock in the morning, my dear friend Anna Irene Controllo send me a video interview that kept me staring at the laptop for 1h without pauses. And that made me so excited that I kept walking around the house like a little mouse!

Yes, I’m telling the truth. What I have discovered from that interview changed my life and the way I now perceive it completely.

The speaker is a biologist called Bruce Lipton, Phd in cellular biology and best selling author with the book “Biology of beliefs”. In the interview (that you find attached at the end of the post and that, if you are an open minded person, receptive to new empowering ideas and concepts, I warmly invite you to watch) He talks about how, from studying the muscle cells, his research shifted toward the power of thoughts and beliefs, showing scientific profs on how beliefs and thoughts affect the body at a cellular level.  And that was for me the first step towards the understanding of this fascinating concept that is now the focus of my coaching practice.

So… from now, I’m going to share with you what I have discovered about the amazingness of our beliefs,  the different ways to raise awareness of the “hidden ones” and the most effective tools to change and repattern them.

It gives me a chance to put together and organise daily all my thoughts, the knowledge and the wisdom I’ve gathered in the last 2 years of research and experimentation. And also gives me opportunity to empower you with the tools that I found more effective and that really make a difference in our mind, body and consciousness, both on a conscious and subconscious level.

Because this is why I’m here for and this is part of what I feel being my mission. Empower people to shine their own light, while releasing limiting patterns for their personal evolution and the evolution of humanity.

For this aim I’ve created a new category called The Power of Beliefs, where I’ll put all my thoughts, the knowledge and wisdom gathered in the last 2 years of research.

As I promised you, this is the link of the interview with Bruce Lipton. I’ll post other videos and seminars from him and other teachers during the creation of this process.

Stay tuned for the next post entitled: What Beliefs Really Are.

I wish you Happiness and Joy.

Emotional releasing!!!

Hello everybody! I hope to find you well and happy today!

Today has been a day full of life, poring from every cell of the Universe!!

The last couple of days I struggled a bit emotionally.. You know… That kind of days where, in my mind, nothing goes right and I don’t feel good about what’s happening in me and around me. Probably you can understand what I mean and, probably you know somebody that has those days.

So, as I’ve been doing since I stopped smoking, I start turning again into food, spending my nights binging and diving into sweets and chocolate. Eating and filling myself up with junk food. It was the only thing that made me feel a little better for a while… But then it was the beginning for a continuous cycle of guilt, followed by the words: “This is the last time! I won’t do it anymore!!!” Well, I got to the point where I really couldn’t stand this behaviour any more and I decided to address my struggle and be sincere with myself.

Being aware that I was just filling myself to avoid a feeling I immediately called the support of Illa, the wonderful soul that is now, both my coach and a dear friend, which I trust with all my heart. She helped me with the issue and today there has been fantastic brakethrough!!

The release I felt today after our emotional work has been so profound that I feel I really shifted something that my body was storing for long long time. And It dealt with an episode of repressed hunger towards my father that happened when I was 17. Being able to forgive, both my father and myself created in me the shift. I started laughing and laughing and laughing,  I couldn’t almost talk or even breath.

Now I feel much better and these strong feelings and behaviours that were controlling myself seems to be vanished and, if not, the volume is much lower!! Now I’m ready to rock again!!! ahaha!!

I’m so grateful today about all that happened in me. And I’m so grateful for having the support of such an amazing and loving coach!! (radiantlotus.co.uk for more information about Illa).

If you are not consciously aware about emotional workout, releasing and repatterning, have a look at toughtfield therapy (TFT) and emotional management. It is amazing how much of Us is stored in a single emotion!!

Thank You for being with me also tonight and I wish you sweet dreams and a happy wake up!!

May Love and Peace prevail on Earth!
