FREEDOM is waiting for you!

“As human beings, most of us have a desire to be free. Free to make our own decisions and opinions, to choose our friends, partners and careers, and to essentially drive the course of our own lives. But the sad truth is, for the majority of the population, total freedom is a far off dream. With a 9-5 workday and a limited paycheck, many people are feeling more constricted, caged and ruled by guidelines, than ever before. Have you ever felt like this? If you often find yourself wishing you could break past the restrictions in
your life, to finally achieve total time and money freedom…

Implement these 4 tips into your life starting today:

1. Don’t take things personally >> It’s sometimes easy
to get offended by other people’s opinions, but the truth is, their opinion is
simply a reflection of themselves and has nothing to do with you! So before
getting angry or consumed by a comment from someone, remind yourself that it’s
your choice how you decide to react to it. My advice: Just let it go! 🙂

2. Don’t play the victim >> Embrace each experience in
your life as an opportunity. When something bad happens, instead of feeling bad
for yourself, take time to think about what you can learn from the experience.

3. Be on YOUR team >> Instead of being your own worst
critic, shift your mind to be your biggest fan today. Every time you think
something negative about yourself, stop and replace it with something positive.
Eventually this will become habit and you’ll truly start to believe in YOU!

4. Forgive >> This goes for yourself AND others.
Forgiveness is releasing the power that a certain event or person may have over
you. When you forgive, you free your mind & body from the past and step
into the freedom of the present moment.

True freedom doesn’t come in the future or from an external situation, it’s
within you right now…so try these 4 steps to experience more freedom today :)”

Tips for Reds on How to Get Along with Blues

If there are any Reds out there who haven’t been frustrated with a Blue at some point or another, we would be shocked. Reds and Blues are very different personalities. Reds are insensitive, while Blues are too sensitive. Reds want to get the job done and Blues want to get the job done perfectly. Blues go on about their feelings and Reds get to the point. Get the picture?

Reds, we know it can be frustrating for you to maintain and/or foster relationships with Blues, but odds are there are several Blues in your life you want to maintain your relationship with. So instead of getting fed up with the process, listen closely. We’re here to provide you with tips on how to use your strengths to get along with Blues better. We’ll make this short and snappy so you can get on with your productive day!

1. Use your leadership skills to help them attain quality.

Blues want to attain quality, and they are creative individuals. If you’re a Red parent, give your Blue child a job that will allow them to express their creativity and attain quality while also helping you out. Since you’re about getting the job done quickly and they’re about getting the job done perfectly, give them a job that doesn’t have a tight timeline, such as preparing the family Mother’s Day Gift a month in advance.

2. Let your confidence help them feel secure.

Reds, you are naturally confident people, which is a great trait. Now let your confidence in yourself translate to confidence in others, and it will go a long way. Blues want to have security, which means if you’re in a relationship with a Blue, they are going to want to feel secure in that relationship. Verbally mention your confidence in your relationship and in them as a partner. Let them know you believe in the two of you working out.

3. Be assertive about letting them reveal their insecurities.

As strange as it may seem to you, Blues want to reveal their insecurities. Since you are naturally assertive, this can work for both of you. Whether they are your romantic partner, your employee or your friend, be assertive about addressing problems in your relationship. This way, Blues have the chance to express their inadequacies in or worries about the relationship and you can view it as a productive way of moving forward in the relationship and getting past anything that would inhibit productivity.

 

We told you we’d make it short. Reds, as hard as it may be to get along with Blues sometimes, you both are so great and would benefit from one another. Follow these tips, and we think you’ll find your relationships will improve. Let us know how it goes!

Blues Need a Break — Three Tips That Will Lead to a Happier Life

Life can be hard when you’re a Blue. You’re overly sensitive, you invest your whole heart into relationships, and people are inevitably disappointing at times. You’re worry-prone and guilt comes very easy to you. Your mind is probably going a million miles a minute, and you’re not necessarily thinking about rainbows and butterflies. It’s no wonder Blues are so hard on themselves!

Blues, you need a break. We are here to offer some advice to help you go a little easier on yourselves until your overall relationship with yourself is much more positive. Keep reading to learn what you can do to ease your burden, and hopefully life will improve for you!

Confide in that one friend

As a Blue, you probably have a network of close friends, but we all know friends listen differently. Pick just one friend you can really trust and set aside time regularly to confide in him and listen in return. Hopefully by talking to him, you can take what’s in your head and get it out so it can help you feel heard and understood. After all, as a Blue, you NEED to be understood! Obviously you don’t want to be the friend who complains all the time or who drives your friend away, but if you find someone who will happily take some time a couple times a month to sit and talk with you, take advantage of that opportunity!

Stop ruminating

Do you find yourself running over the same situations in your head all the time and wondering if you should have done or said something different? Stop. Unless you highly offended someone or need to correct a big error, don’t allow yourself to continue to sweat the small stuff. You’ve got enough to worry about and get done in life without allowing your head to explode over whether or not you offended your neighbor by not eating her dessert when you had dinner together. It may not come naturally to let this kind of thing go, but you need to put your mental health as a priority, and this will surely help!

Do something fun

Take your mind off your worries, your guilt and your perfectionism and just do something fun that makes you happy. Don’t worry too much about budget or time or practicality, just do something because it sounds wonderful. Go get tacos in the middle of the week, go to a water park, enjoy a carnival, plan a vacation–just do something a Yellow would do! Let your mind relax.

Blues, don’t just read this list and move on, use it! You deserve a break. Print this list off and tape it to your mirror so it can serve as a good reminder. If you’ve implemented any other tips that have helped you go easier on yourself, share them with the other readers in the comments!

Probably not what you expect from a Life Coach – A Little Something Extra and Different!

Acti-Labs by Acti-Jewels – a business that could be worth its weight in Jewels!

I am a big fan of Direct Sales and Marketing.  I have been involved with various DSNs and MLMs – from Mary Kay to some of the current ones. I have experienced a level of success with each one, especially the most recent one! Then, last week I received a call from my Business Development Strategist. She has NEVER been involved with any type of DSN or MLM.  She would say “yuck”, “not interested” and “no thank you”.  The word “MLM” is a tongue twister for her!  LOL! In this case she put on her Business Development Strategist hat and went after the info. Within one hour she had made the French connection and the US connection and was on board. Being body conscious, she was drawn into their Body Sculpting system. However, as she explored further, she realized there was a lot more to be had and found a ‘ground floor’ opportunity.

FIRST GENERATION LEVEL: The Acti-Jewels Team Leader is First Generation after a Founding Member!

Of course I joined and quickly discovered that every business opportunity is under one roof with Acti-Labs:  Skincare, Bodycare, Body-Sculpting, Slimming, Weight loss and Cosmetics! Seriously! But most importantly you have access to everything to build your business for as little as $27.50! What?! I know, right! After my conversation with my Business Development Strategist, it was time to take advantage of this  ground floor opportunity! Chances are there is no one in your area doing Acti-Labs. Isn’t that simply awesome and new! New is good!

The business is no joke, the surgery like or medically inspired products are totally manufactured in France by Acti-Labs and the opportunity only hit the US in 2016. The significance of this lies in the fact that you get laboratory direct prices. There is no middle man!

For those of you who have been in Network marketing, it will be refreshing to know the following:

No minimums

  • No auto-ships
  • Low entry of $27.50
  • Your personal website
  • Training
  • Support from a dynamic team – Acti-Jewels
  • Acti-Jewels team marketing materials
  • Acti-Jewels team techniques to take your business as high as you want it to go.

Team Acti-Jewels is about to storm this market and you want to storm it with us. Which ever stream of products is your passion, Acti-Labs have you covered. What still has me in shock is the cost of these products. There is nothing over $50. This is a huge advantage. The sales opportunity comes directly from the manufacturer, so there is no middle man to take the prices higher. Take a look at the incredible prices for these world class luxurious products here.

Ask me about this opportunity, explore our Facebook page here, and become a business member of Acti-Jewels. Earn as much income as you want, work as little or as much as you want, have the flexibility of being your own boss! Team Acti-Jewels is motivated. We are producing our own posters, marketing strategy and advertising. Our goal is simple – Acti-Jewels will produce the most successful team members in this Network. Who is ready to make it, not only rain, but storm?

Identify your Vibrations

Did you know that your Personality’s Color can tell so much about you? It’s true. You can identify what you do and why you do it.

Color has a profound effect on our subconscious thinking. For example, there’s a reason why many restaurants use the color red. It’s said to increase appetite, which is a very good thing for those selling food products. Now, that doesn’t mean if your personality is represented by red that you’re going to ravenous all of the time. Red is also an intense color that invokes not only love, but power, dominance, and energy.

Each color has its own wavelength, as I’m sure you remember from high school science classes. Each wavelength represents a particular vibration of energy, such as those that calm or energize. These vibrations are what you and I, and everyone around us, consist of. You can learn more about yourself by identifying those vibrations and how they are affecting you.

Discovering who you are and how you respond based on the Color of Your Personality will allow you to shape your life and interactions with others in such a way that promotes positivity, abundance, success, happiness, health, and more! 

My new Core Motive Discovery Sessions help you tap into your core motives and what makes you tick. 

Using your Personality Color profile, we then use what’s learned to create a blueprint to your authentic self-awareness. This blueprint positions you to have clear knowledge of what you’re meant to do in life and what steps you need to take in order to make it all happen.

If you’re ready to discover who you are at the core of your being, contact me for your FREE Personalized Comprehensive Profile Analysis.

As a Life Coach, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. Helping you make radical improvements in your life is my focus.

My Personality Color is BLUE

What do these Colors mean anyway?

“A prospective client recently asked me if I could better explain what these four Colors are so that she could better understand how the Color Code Science strategy works and how to apply it to her life.  She said, “I just hear about “Red,” “Blue,” “White,” and “Yellow”  with a few behavioral qualities that describe what each Color is like. She also wanted to know what the Colors themselves mean.

  • There is no Color that is better or worse than any other Color. (Period).
  • Each Color brings wonderful strengths to the table and can be encumbered by terrible limitations.
  • There is no “right” or “wrong” Color combination between people in a relationship.

In other words, any Color can work with any other Color in a professional setting, and any Color can be in a meaningful personal relationship with any other Color.

Every relationship combination under the sun requires work. Every relationship combination has the potential to be wildly successful or absolutely devastating. The key is, understanding what makes people tick—what motivates them to do what they do, now you can understand what to expect or not to expect, how to communicate, how to inspire, how to express love, how to grow, etc.

So what do the Colors “Red,” “Blue,” “White,” and “Yellow” mean, anyway? It is important to realize that the Colors in and of themselves don’t mean anything at all. Just because I’m a Blue, for example, doesn’t mean that I like the color Blue, or look good in the color BLUE, etc.

The Colors are just a simple metaphor to communicate a more complex meaning.

The key bit of information here – is to remember what MOTIVATES each of the Colors. In other words, what is the driving force behind the way that they think, behave, and feel.

We call this the “Driving Core Motive” or “DCM” for short. Here is a list of the DCMs by Color Code:

Reds are motivated by Power

Blues are motivated by Intimacy

Whites are motivated by Peace

Yellows are motivated by Fun

Let’s take a moment now, to define what each of these DCMs mean, because once you understand that, this idea of “Colors” and “Motives” and what to do with this information should be a lot more meaningful to you as you evaluate the various relationships in your life and ponder on what is working well and what requires improvement.

What does it mean to be motivated by Power, as a Red?

Sometimes people think about power in terms of control. While it’s true that Reds do like to be in control of their circumstances and are attracted to leadership opportunities, that’s not a very complete picture of what Power really means to Reds. To Reds, Power generally means that they desire the ability to move from “point A” to “point B”—and they want to do it in the most direct, productive and efficient way possible. Next, let’s consider what it means to be motivated by Intimacy, as a Blue.

Being motivated by Intimacy means that Blues like to connect with others on a deep and meaningful level. Just ask any Blue how they feel about people who are fake/superficial, and I guarantee you will get quite a strong reaction. They want nothing to do with those kinds of people, because Intimacy for a Blue is about truth, legitimacy, integrity, loyalty, and sincerity.  Another fun question to ask Blues is simply, “How many friends do you have?” It’s a simple enough question, but most Blues will immediately come to the conclusion that there is a real difference between friends and acquaintances, and they’ll process this on a very serious level. At the end of their contemplation, most Blues will tell you that they can count the number of their friends on one hand, because those are the people with whom they feel that real, intimate connection. Incidentally, if you ask a Yellow the same question, they will probably quote you their Facebook stats.

The next look we will take is at the Whites who are motivated by Peace. When I ask people what they think Peace means to a White; they usually come up with a definition that centers around a general lack of conflict. While it is true that most Whites are not typically big fans of conflict, their definition of Peace runs deeper than that.  To a White, Peace is all about inner harmony and balance. They don’t like to have that equilibrium disrupted. That’s why they try to change the subject if you attempt to talk about something that makes them feel insecure. They don’t want to stir things up inside. Think about how centered and consistent the Whites you know can be. They don’t get overly excited about things, and they don’t get really depressed about things either. They are consistent, even-tempered, and steady, because on the inside, they seek harmony and balance.

Last, but not least, we come to the Yellows in our discussion. Yellows are motivated by Fun.  Let’s talk about what that means, because most people misunderstand this about Yellows. Fun does not simply mean that Yellows are seeking endless frivolity and that they never take things seriously.  People incorrectly assume that Yellows don’t like structure, when in fact, they crave it. It only looks like they resist it because most Yellows don’t know how to create structure on their own.  Fun to a Yellow actually means “living in the moment.” It means that they enjoy the process of what they are doing far more than the end result. That’s why Yellows are generally so engaged and “present” when you are with them. They are focused on the here and now and nothing else. Carpe Diem or “seize the day” is a Yellow way of life.

In a work setting, Yellows simply find a way to enjoy whatever it is they are doing – no matter how mundane. They’ll focus on the camaraderie, the experiences they have, the social interaction their work provides, etc. They tend to think very optimistically, and if they can be positive and enjoy their work, they will find it easier to commit and excel in whatever it is that they are doing.

So there you have it, a brief, introductory lesson on the Colors themselves and on the DCMs that drive them.

One last little lesson I’ll leave you with is this… When you consider the four DCMs of Power, Intimacy, Peace, and Fun, please take note that none of these motives are positive… nor are they negative. Power, Intimacy, Peace, and Fun in and of themselves are all neutral. The APPLICATION of Power, Intimacy, Peace, and Fun is what makes them positive or negative. I hope this overview on the four motive styles helps you better understand the people around you. All life is about relationships. There are no areas of life that are NOT impacted by relationships, so please study these patterns. Seek to understand motives and you will be far more effective in all areas of your life.” (JD)
