Jennifer, your books on wellness, transformation, fitness, health and food sold worldwide, and you are building your empire with the desire to pay it forward, what drives you?
It’s plain and simple. Very Important People have Very Important Programming and Very Important Programs they stick to.
Like every woman who dreams to win in all areas of life, before becoming successful, focused and disciplined, my “program” for life was just to get by, I was “going with the flow” to survive, accepting whatever life handed my way.
As I started my personal self help journey, I soon realized that I too had to “Re-Program” myself. I had to replace my old, archaic, out dated habits with new ones that actually served me. Here are the eight ” instead” steps I take myself:
- Instead of sleeping in- I wake up early ever day at the same time.
- Instead of going to be late- I go to bed early every day the same time.
- Instead of worrying- I become a warrior
- Instead of going with the flow- I start to create and design the life that I want to live.
- Instead of crying victim- I choose to be victorious
- Instead of being focused on the problem- I create solutions to my problems
- Instead of trying to fix everyone’s problems- I let go and let God
- Instead of swapping out looking frazzled and flustered- I make sure that I put myself together, polished and poised!
You see, just like a computer, we are all wired or programed a certain way, either for success or to be unsuccessful. To be fearful, or full of faith. To be full of confusion, or have clarity.
You mentioned about being wired and re-programming ourselves to master our lives. Let’s dig deeper. What does it take to change your lifestyle, live your life on your own terms?
We all function from our subconscious mind. We have 80,000-90,000 thoughts per day, and all of them are subconscious! So no wonder we sometimes self sabotage our success. So we must look deep at our Beliefs Systems to see what is hurting us or helping us.
You have to stop believing in limited thoughts, and to crush your Limiting Beliefs System! So you are ready to kick butt in all areas of your life. But guess what, your mind, your belief systems and your subconscious thoughts can absolutely stop you from the success that you absolutely want. If you are looking for pain in your life, you will find it. If you are looking for happiness in your life, you will find it. It’s a powerful Universal rule! Whatever you are seeking, is also then silently seeking you!
So when you are re-programming yourself and creating new ways to live your life on your own terms, you wake up looking for success, seeking happiness, requesting abundance, joy, healthy and love in your life-and everything you seek it will show up!
You designed your life on your own terms and now you are the Queen of Wellness. What is your secret? How to you keep your energy so high throughout the day? Do you have daily routines?
I don’t know about having a secret, as I share my morning rituals all the time. Anyone could start a good day by wining the MORNING! If you pray, start with a prayer. Express your gratitude as often as you can and if you run out of inspiration, google for
a positive message on a video, or search for a Morning Mindfulness Meditation.
If you are going to have lasting results, you have to do daily rituals. You don’t take one bath, or shower once and your are clean for the rest of your life. You don’t go to the gym once and expect to be in shape for the rest of your life. You don’t go to church once to have an amazing relationship with your higher power. Get the point? So you need to do daily rituals, daily habits in order to have long term success.
For example: how many of you learned a language in college? But you can’t even say a few sentences! So you got to learn and grow through immersion! This is where events come into play! So in order to use all of your VIP POWER you have to get to an event, a wellness retreat, a fitness weekend, a seminar, an online webinar to USE what you learned, through IMMERSION! So make sure you seek out the next VIP Seminar in your area, or online, or even get daily motivation online.
You are always feeling blessed, the question is how do you stay in that space? How do you create an unconscious anticipation of joy, happiness and feeling so blessed during lockdown, while in self isolation? What are your top tips for our readers?
It is very important to improve your mental and emotional state by starting your day off right!
It’s a daily discipline and you should never find an excuse to do it!
It takes 10-15 minutes, so you can do it every day.
CHANGE YOUR EXPECTATIONS FOR APPRECIATION
You see, when you don’t have your expectations met, and you have been working so hard, and you get little to no results, you get bummed and feel down and angry. But if you switch this, and start to replace expectations, everything changes to your advantage.
TRAIN YOUR BRAIN!
Use your brain, or it will start using YOU! Have you ever have your brain just run ragged? Well, we got to control it so it is a master to you, you are not a master to it.
Be your own best friend, not your own worst enemy- all starts with your brain, and how you use it for your greater good!
LET GO OF OLD PROGRAMS, & REPLACE NEW ONES
When you talk about, it’s a dream. When you visualize it, its cool & exciting. When you schedule it, its real! Commit to it! Put it on your calendar! Put it on your planner!
GO FROM PEAK TO PEAK
Plan your successes in advance. When you crush a goal, you feel great! And then there is more, drop by drop. So you are up and down, up and down. But if you keep planning your big power moves, your goals, and keep them packed on your calendar, you will be effectively re- programming yourself to become the power house that you want to be!
Don’t let opportunity escape your grasp.
IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE THE WORLD, AND CHANGE OTHER PEOPLE, YOU HAVE TO FIRST START WITH CHANGING YOURSELF
Lets get real: You cant change anyone. You have to become the change you want to see in the world, and also what you want to see in others. Once you become that, you will attract others like you, and set the bar, raising the bar to new heights.
YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT, AND ALSO YOU ARE THE MEDIA YOU CONSUME
If thoughts become things, and what visuals you allow into your mind manifests into reality, make sure you are “consuming” positive media that will help you become the VIP woman you want to be.
Stay away from negative news, soap operas, reality TV that evokes jealously and bad emotions because these forms of media will cause negativity in your mind, body, and spirit.
Instead, replace negative media with positive videos, audio books, guided meditations, positive affirmations, music and movies. Feed your mind positive media every day! Rewire it, retrain it to see the good, expect the good, and believe that you can create your dream VIP life.
Keep the momentum going, making sure you do daily rituals of positive affirmations, guided meditations, praying, journal writing, and listening to positive audio books, seminars, and joining group coaching calls. I offer tons of supportive media in my Private coaching group that you can listen to when you are getting dressed in the morning, running errands, or working from home.
DON’T ENTERTAIN NEGATIVE PEOPLE- IT’S A TRAP!
Do you know someone that would always like to “stir-the-pot” and cause negative energy? Stay away from them! It’s a trap. I call them energy vampires. Delete them from your phone, and block them on social media. It’s time for you to clean house of non-VIP like women, so you can leave the rest to be your BEST! VIP Women know their value, their worth and only entertain other like-minded-women.
The most important piece of advice you will ever hear is this : END ALL NEGATIVE SELF TALK
I had to finally put an end to negative self talk. From growing up being teased, bullied, and never fitting in, I suffered from always talking negative to myself. I was raised on food stamps, wore hand-me-downs, and ate free lunches. I never felt good enough. These early feelings of despair, lack, and not being “good enough” stayed with me for a long time. I had to TRAIN MYSELF to stop feeling bad about myself.
How did I do this? I used what I call now the “VIP Positive Talk Method”. As soon as a negative thought pops into my mind about myself, I recognize it, and then completely flip it to be the exact opposite.
