NEW RULE; the Big Idea/ Strategy to help with this new world we live in:

“Strip Down” and get back to basics.

Why it’s important; benefits both personally and professionally:

You will have more clarity, more passion, more joy and more connection with “self.”  When you “declutter,” it will be more liberating, and extremely transformative.

How to accomplish the above:

With simple baby steps, one at a time, you will work on physical barriers and internal barriers (thought patterns). It can be as simple as removing physical things in your “area” that are no longer working: pictures, clothes, relationships, jobs, etc. Then you will dig deeper and work on your thoughts that are no longer serving you, and remove them.  When you remove the internal and external things, you make room for other, better things as well as making “energetic shifts.” You can do this when you feel overwhelmed in any area of your life.

Favorite Quote:

“Happiness depends upon ourselves.” – Aristotle

Golden Nuggets:

  • Finding your “Happy” takes Courage but we all have it inside of us. The happiness is inside you … stop looking for happiness outside è what is going to make you happy?
  • Remove barriers that keep you from being happy.
  • Follow your joy route ~ Follow your bliss. Access what brings you joy.
  • Get out of your own way.
  • Take small steps and dig deep. Take small happy steps … The Big picture – can be overwhelming.  Don’t focus on that.  Put one foot in front of the other and work on one thing a day.
  • Don’t just accept your lot as being overworked and under joyed.
  • Put yourself into the equation of your life.
  • Take a stand and say I’m worth it.    
  • Article ~ Happiness Habits of Happy People: 
  • Rephrase the question in your mind: What if life isn’t happening TO you but happening FOR you?
  • Become your own best friend
  • You can’t create more of what you want unless you appreciate what you have ~  express gratitude.
  • Create a No Regrets Lifestyle
  • When you actively participate in your life, it becomes a beautiful dance and you truly find Your Happy.
