Keep in Mind Personal Growth & You ...

WHAT IF THE QUOTE YOU JUST READ WAS LIKE A MINI CONVERSATION?

Sometimes all you need is a few words of wisdom. Sometimes all you want is a few words of wisdom.

It’s a few words that offer you connection and comfort in a way that provides the space you need, in this moment, for personal growth.

So, how could you look at reading a quote on breakthroughs as a mini conversation? Here's some thoughts and a few short conversations for you ...

"the day before

WHEN CONVERSATION IS MAKING ROOM FOR A BREAKTHROUGH

When you feel this way, chances are pretty good you don't want someone coming in and fixing the problem for you.

This is one of those times you're NOT looking for someone to understand you. And, for good reason.

For example, it could look like this ...

You could be feeling annoyed because what you're thinking is, "No matter what you say, it's wrong!".

It doesn’t mean what you’re thinking is right … it just means you need some space.

The good reason you don’t want someone fixing the problem has to do with you wanting to figure things out for yourself. Personal growth is waiting to happen.

When this happens (my experience) says this is about me trying to figure out the what, how, and why of what I'm really feeling.

How do you listen to your inner voice, follow your heart, or grow, unless you give yourself time and space? I like to think of this as being on the brink of a breakthrough.

I also like to think of it as your inner voice happy it's finally getting your attention.

In essence, you're grasping to understand something about yourself and you can feel it inside.

When you push this inner wisdom aside you miss the point. You miss a lesson for yourself. And, I think that feeling looks a lot like frustration.

On the other hand, say you want to do something important, like change your career.

What do you need to do before you can make right decisions for you? Tony Robbins teaches about focus, meaning, and action.

And get this … the feeling you have could be described as an action you take. An action which alters a decision. Every time.

I want to emphasize how important feelings are because well, I don’t believe a lot people are aware of the enormity feelings play in day to day life.

Not in a way they could, in the way you could, and the way I can … in a way that empowers you.

I feel strongly about this because I think I’m a regular person. Just an ordinary person like you. And I didn’t know the magnitude feelings play in the quality of your life. Not consciously. Not thoughtfully.

Since then … with exposure to everything I’ve been learning as a student of Brian Tracy, Barbara DeAngelis, Robbins-Madanes Training, and Tony Robbins … I still don’t always get it right.

That's what being a diamond in the rough is all about and what makes it exciting is awareness, desire, and a new persistence.

Another fitting conversation [quote!] ...

"Excellence is a gradual result ..

Appreciation … for sure! makes you think … I do strive to do better. Gradual is great! It’s not a whole bunch, just a little. I can improve a little. And a little more. And a little more. Each and every time I pay attention to how I really feel.

WITH HEARTFELT UNDERSTANDING, WHAT PERCENTAGE OF A CONVERSATION IS BASED ON THE ACTUAL WORDS SAID?

How you come across to others is how you're really feeling. How are you feeling? Happy? Certain? Confused? Uncertain? Reflective?

Check out the truth for you … pay attention and reflect on a few decisions you’ve made recently. How were you feeling at the time? Do you see how feeling a certain way affected your decision?

A friendly challenge ~ if you want to create empowering variety into your day, as well as make decisions you can be proud of, pay attention to your feelings. I’ll join you!

Sounds like an obvious thing to do and easy too. After all, how hard can it be to pay attention to your feelings? To know what you're feeling all the time? And then to feel just right.

You'd be surprised at the new insight that comes with reflecting over reactions or responses when you're ready for a breakthrough.

How about this … why is it Ralph Waldo Emerson felt this way?

"who you are speaks so loudly

WHAT IF YOU OPENED THE CONVERSATION WITH HOW YOU REALLY FEEL? [YOU/BREAKTHROUGH QUOTE]

When it comes to realizing who's in control of breakthroughs in personal growth – how can you not get excited?

You have the control. This is a good place to be in control … to feel what you want, and not what you feel out of habit.

Because sometimes those old habits of feeling aren’t what you really want to be feeling. Seriously, just ask me.

The way to there ... where the basis of any happy relationship is heartfelt understanding, then the basis of a happy you is heartfelt understanding too. With you understanding you. Makes sense, right?

It's my opinion, when in awesome communication [with yourself] you don't always know, right off the bat, what your conversation even is, yet.

Meaning, it doesn't get to awesome without you doing some work first.

Especially when you experience new emotions. That in itself is cause for new discussion. New understanding. Within yourself.

From this place, I find when I read words of wisdom and experience, I feel understood ... that I'm not alone in my situation.

See it? You need some distance. But also connection ... to experience your breakthrough. But not too much, because remember, this is personal.

It’s not a breakthrough if you don’t experience the experience. And, take new action.

Children know this ... they're so great. They get a lot of things we forget as adults. Because ... what do they do when they get angry? How do they get to feeling good again? They decide.

Remember, no one can make you feel anything. Try telling a child how to feel ... good luck! They decide how they want to feel. This is no different. It's just healthy space.

The reason all this is so important is because breakthroughs in personal growth is going from where you used to be (uncertainty) to a place of feeling good (certainty).

Perfect timing for a perfect quote ... "Life isn't about waiting

The dance? Yes … you’re learning the dance!

This very process could be what annoys you when someone you love is trying to help ... it has nothing to do with them.

The annoyance you feel is the uncertainty created by a breakthrough-in-progress.

I mean, yes of course, you create this feeling. It's not something outside of you.

And, no, I don't mean to say you'll be the same, I just mean to share my experience.

Here's where the wisdom behind the right words at the right time can make a difference.

STRIKE UP A CONVERSATION [WITH QUOTES]. ANYTIME!

While your state (how you feel) is a change-in-progress, instead of having a conversation that won't and can't go anywhere (until you get you right), picture this (to get you right : ) …

But first, are you one of those people who pictures a free parking spot in front of a busy store and pulls right in?

Or, have you thought of someone and they've called you?

Doesn't happen to me.

This does ... I can walk over to the bookshelf, pick up a book, flip through it, and there it is! The just right quote. Sometimes I flip through a few more times and there's another one. Perfect for me and or my work.

This is a favourite way to find quotes.

Love when this happens and know how you feel when pull into a free parking spot or get a call from someone you're thinking about.

Just like you experience a, "Yes!", I feel the same good energy.

It's shared insight, wisdom, and gifts in a sentence or two that make your day! That inspire you to feel your best. Isn't that cool?

I'm happy the quote thing happens over the parking one ... as for thinking of someone and that person calling ... I like that one.

The next quote comes from Tony Robbins' Money: Master the Game [Pages 184-199 ~ awesome section explaining breakthroughs].

"A breakthrough is a moment

THE CONVERSATION PIECE? EASY. QUOTES SHINE FROM PERSPECTIVE ... YOURS.

You know how it's said you see the world from your perspective, not how it really is? ... this idea, thought, insight, experience, and wisdom – has been quoted in a variety of ways by more than one author.

This idea also lays the foundation for how you interpret the words you read.

For example ... if you're new to breakthroughs you'll see the insight and wisdom shared from where you are, from what you understand, right now.

Then notice how your perspective changes with new understanding. See it change with breakthroughs in personal growth. With new experiences.

If you’re new to breakthroughs you may not see things from this point of view, yet. The thing is you become more open to what IS available to you.

Plus, depending on the state you’re in … how you feel this moment … affects the meaning you’ll give shared insight or wisdom.

With this in mind, I'm going to share how I find quotes helpful with regards to breakthroughs in personal growth.

I want to do this for you because one, I love doing this kind of work. And two, maybe you don't have time.

I hope you enjoy the insight, wisdom, and experience found on these pages. And, if your perspective is totally different, I respect that too.

When you reflect on what’s true for you … things feel different, with some thoughtfulness, of course.

For instance, when you listen to Tony Robbins' Ultimate Edge program and hear a quote like the following you recognize a truth you might never have thought of ...

"Let's not forget

LOVING THE CONVERSATION? GROW THE CONVERSATION.

If you’re interested in expanding the conversation [treat yourself to more than a written quote] listen to Tony Robbins explain what you need to create a breakthrough.

I love taking notes as a student of Tony Robbins. Here's some of what I got with added personalization (best way to absorb!) ...

Strategy is about what you need to do to get doing the thing you want to be doing.

Meaning, experiencing the feelings you want to be experiencing. More often. Way more often! Tony shows you fun strategies that work. And, if your first thought is, "I don't get strategies", I can relate. 100%.

I used to go blank when I read or heard talk about strategy. I used to skim over it or stop listening, believing I'd never get it.

You get past this! You do, before you know it you action strategy. Hey, if I can do it ... I believe you can too. Just think of strategy as something you already do. Because it's true.

Story is about the story you tell yourself. Your reasons for everything. How you see you. How you express you ... telling your story.

It's made up of ...

  • Your why which is what you're busy caring about [tip: there's reasons you might experience a disempowering emotion when you most care about love and connection so don't let your story confuse you].
  • Your beliefs. Which is a bunch of resources you've bundled together to make up your mind about things.

Thing is ... how reliable are those resources? You might need new resources [tip (shared homework : ) Questioning disempowering beliefs starts to break them down].

Quality State is when you feel good about you. State is about how you're feeling. In any given moment. Which accumulated then make up for habitual states. Habits of emotion. [graphic: quality state feels like]
