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:
- Time Management: the ability to achieve in a determined time frame
- Mind Management: the ability to make friendship with the chatterbox
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!!
- 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!
- I asked myself: “Which is the most effective and creative way in which I can store and organise all the paperwork?”
- The answer that came to me was to divide all the sheets by category, without analysing them. Just separating them topic to topic.
- After it has been the time to identify which had to be reviewed.
- 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.
- Acknowledge the feeling.
- Recognise the correspondent limiting beliefs/ fears.
- Lower the Volume.
- Think specifically about what you want and ask the right question.
- Take inspiration.
- Use the right tool.
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!!
Today I’ll leave a video talk about my feelings in this moment.
I remember the first time I watched it… I was in Maranello, dealing with the coaching material for my diploma.
In a moment of pause I decided to open my email, where I found this gift from my dear friend Andreia Silva. That made my day, leaving me with tears of joy in my eyes and happy feelings in my chest for the rest of the day.
Everytime I watch it I still feeling strong, delicate emotions running through my eyes in the form of tears.
I want to share with you this little gift that had so much meaning for me.
Relating to the video, I’d love to quote the words that Phil, a dear friend of mine, shared with me, with tears of truth in his eyes:
“My purpose in life is to enhance the life of the people I Love. I don’t know the effect that my actions of Love can create, but Love is like stone throne into a calm pond, we don’t know the how far the ripple effect can spread.”
What Can you do today to enhance the life people around you that you Love?
If you have to take one action to enhance the life of the people around you that you Love, what would it be?
Mine for today is to call a friend and tell him how much I miss him and how much he means for me. Tell him I care about him and I love him.
May You always be in the ripple!!
Hello, I hope I’m finding you well and happy!!
Tonight post is very brief and straight forward.
I’d Love to share with you the amazing gift that the universe prepared for me tonight.
Today around 14.00 I received a call. It was Fabio, the manager of Amico Bio. Unfortunately for him, he told me he felt very sick and he couldn’t work at the restaurant for the night.
Fortunately now is better and tomorrow will be ready to lead the bridles of my last shift.
Well.. I have always been a prima donna and I love to have the light of the attention on top of me. This is the reason why I work best when I can act on the stage of the floor in the way I want.
So, Fabio’s sickness gave me the opportunity to shine and step into my best resources for tonight!
The night has been great, 78 people Happy, great teamwork with the other waitresses, lot of tips and a lot of laughs! I’m really proud of how I directed the orchestra tonight.
And for this, I have to thank Fabio and all the teachings he shared with me.
I feel to acknowledge one in particular: “A waiter work with his head, not with the feet.”
And this is what I have done tonight. And a lesson I want to remember for my life ahead in other areas of my life!
I’m so grateful today for the synchronistic opportunity to shine on the stage of Amico Bio, and for the teachings that he always shared with me, day after day. Pushing me forward in a process of growth.
And the question of the day is:
What are you grateful for today?
I invite you to share your thoughts with me, allowing this post to vibrate at the energy of gratitude!
Much love to You,
May We always shine
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.
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.
