Is there Greatness Within You?

Found this the other day while I was coming out of a coffee shop with a friend. What amazes me is that this sign has ALWAYS been here and I never noticed it until NOW! I guess we bring things to our awareness when we are finally ready to receive.

I had to stop and take a picture because I felt this message was calling out to me. This journey really has its ups and downs and sometimes you just feel like giving up and settling for something with less work or something else you fantasize that will be much easier….But really, who am I kidding! I have to remind myself every now and then that I am different. Different in many beautiful aspects of life because really there is only ONE of me! So when I stop to think about my life and purpose, I get a feeling of tremendous amount of support and love all around me. The force within me and around me tells me to KEEP ON GOING! Its in the moments when the universe surprises me with signs to tell me to hang on, not give up and that I am guided.

Here are a few steps that have helped me to pursue greatness in myself and in my life:

1 – Believe in Yourself 

If you don’t believe in yourself then who will? Your belief in yourself is the most important thing to have as it sets the foundation to everything! “If you think you can or can’t then you are right” – Henry Ford

2 –  NEVER give up!!

Would you ever tell a toddler who is learning how to walk to just give up after a few steps of trying because it will never learn how to walk again??? I am pretty sure you would say NO! Of course not!

It’s in our DNA to consistently try until we master it. With the help of encouraging loved ones and true friends, they show us what we can’t see in ourselves and prove to us that the impossible in POSSIBLE!

Great things take time to develop! If its a big goal it will take time, commitment, dedication, faith and persistence to make it happen. Success never comes when you want it to, it comes when it is the right time!

3 – Take small steps forward

“You don’t have to see the whole stair case, just take the first step” – Martin Luther King

Hey, Rome was not built in a day! it started as a vision and then the magic was made.

Set a vision/goal for yourself. Once you have that then set a deadline as to when you would like for it to be achieved. After, your job is to constant feed your vision/goal with nurturing thoughts and love and have a mental visualization of the end result. Work hard towards your dreams by performing the tasks at hand and watch your vision/dream/goals come ALIVE! Keep adding momentum by celebrating the small things/steps :)

4 – Just DO IT!!

There is no “trying”. Trying doesn’t get you anywhere but stuck in spinning cycle getting you the same results that leads to no where. Only headaches and frustrations. Just Do it! Get up and do the work! No one will do it better then you. If you don’t know how, then find people who are knowledgeable to help you. REMEMBER there is a solution to every problem. NOW the real question is “HOW BAD DO YOU WANT IT”!

To help you I have a guide to help you to get you into the right state of mind. Click here to access the smart guide! It can be towards weight loss, love relationships, career, financial abundance, business, etc. You name it!

5 – Think UP-lifting positive thoughts!

Could you ever be angry and happy at the same time? hmmmm, NO! Would you rather feel heavy, depressed and look drained from your emotions and thoughts OR would you rather feel happy, content with life and look positivity radiating? hmmmm, is that a trick question??

When it comes to your greatness, you are POWERFUL! You are SMART! You are BEAUTIFUL! Feed your mind, body and soul with positive thoughts, feelings and emotions and you will light up the world around you. Try it and then tell me how you feel afterwards.

How to avoid Holiday weight gain!

Dollarphotoclub_74428990Christmas is just around the corner! Are you feeling the christmas spirit yet? I am. The christmas movies on TV, Christmas songs on the radio, Santa in the malls, festive lights everywhere, people shopping, company parties, etc. It truly is a wonderful time of the year to be able to feel the joy in people’s heart.

We have all the good emotions but what about the gringing feeling of christmas parties and dinners. Lots of chocolates, alcohol, food, food and more food. Did I mention FOOD! I thought by mentioning FOOD it would bring awareness that the next few weeks leading to christmas is a time where people pack on the pounds FAST. It literally creeps up on you and before you know it your gut is hanging over your pants and your clothes are snugger….BUT it doesn’t have to be this way. THERE IS A WAY! I have the perfect solution for you!

Keep reading. I promise this is GOOD! It will save you the devastation of extra unwanted weight!

1. NEVER ARRIVE HUNGRY!!!

Try to have a nutritious snack beforehand. If you do arrive hungry, drink some water to fill up before filling your plate.

2. Distract yourself!

There’s more to a holiday party than food. Don’t look at the party as just a food event. Enjoy your friends company or dancing. Focus on something other than food. Focus on a good conversations or play with the children.

3. Be mindful when you eat!
Chew more slowly and stay in the present. If you find this is difficult put your fork down between every bite. Before you know it, you would have eaten a lot less and stayed full longer.

4. Keep your portions small

Use the smallest plate available and don’t stack your food.  Fill your plate with as much greens as you can with some meat for protein and pick fresh fruits and vegetables. Watch out for sauces and dips.

5. Limit Alcohol
Avoid drinking too much alcohol at holiday parties. It’s not just about calories but about control. If you drink a lot you, won’t have as much control over what you eat.

6. Be selective with your Sweets
Limit your indulgences to small portions and only what looks appealing to you. You’re better off taking a small portion of a single dessert than piling your plate with several treats you plan to try.

7. Bring Your Own Treats
Whether you’re going to a friend’s party or an office potluck, consider bringing a low-calorie treat that you know you’ll enjoy. Bringing your own dessert will make the more fattening alternatives less tempting.

8. Walk It Off or Zumba it off!
Make a new holiday tradition: the family walk or the family Zumba dance!! Besides burning some extra calories, this will get everyone away from the food for awhile and enjoy each others company and SUPER FUN!!!

Dreams really do come true. Many people say “Hard Work Pays Off” which is true but I believe that when you put TIME, ENERGY and MONEY into what you really want and into your dreams/vision, no matter what IT WILL COME TRUE!! Successful people don’t make excuses! They don’t listen to naysayers! They are not Lazy! They have a GOAL and they set out to achieve it. People don’t know what it feels to walk in your shoes. People don’t know what is best for you! Surround yourself with people who are like minded like you, who believe in you and your dreams/vision, who have incredible positive energy and will be there for you to help you without wanting anything in return. When you find these special people, you treat them like family and appreciate them in every way as they are sent from heaven up above to support you, guide you, love you unconditionally and who truly truly truly want the best for you and your growth. We are all here to help transform the planet. It is our birth right to learn, evolve and ascend higher so that people can grow with you and be the best version of themselves in hopes that they will also find their purpose.

Think BIG! Dream BIG! Get BIG! NEVER settle! Keep your standards higher then the norm and the people will come gladly and happily. FEAR is just an illusion! Break the fear and let your inner light shine through.

If anyone is looking for a way out, is stuck, doesn’t know what direction to take, wants some direction and guidance, then email me and we can set up a complimentary consultation to review your life goals. No charge. Just some light to shine your path. Start NOW! Can’t wait to here from you :D

How to be more Confident

michelle_soares_take_care_of_yourself

 

Confidence has many different meaning for people but I find that the common thread is standing in your own power. Standing in your own body and being comfortable with yourself to stand strong in the face of struggles, hardships, cruelty of harsh comments from others and of course confidence in your own skin.

We were all created differently and meant to shine our unique talents and gifts to the world. Does that make people better then others? No, i just believe its the hard work, commitment and focus one does to get where they are in the world. Its simple, if you don’t honour who you are and don’t put in the work, then you will only get half way and stop or just live the rest of your life being in between mediocrity and success.

I developed 10 short tips to help increase your confidence!

1. Stop comparing yourself to people, stay focused on you!

2. Relax! Go with the flow and don’t stress over the little things

3. Love yourself! You are a gift! This world would not be the same if you didn’t exist.

4. Be positive and look for the good in every situation

5. Do what you love and love what you do! There is nothing more beautiful in this world then to share your talents and gifts with others to help UPlift them to a better place. If you want to know more about sharing your Love & Passion look into this amazing retreat that everyone is raving about. Click here

6. Surround yourself with people who are positive and who are also working to make this world a better place.

7. Set mini goals and set your mind to tackle them everyday

8. Exercise and eat healthy. You want to feel good about yourself inside and out. I have an AWESOME guide that I put together to help you with this. Click here

9. Develop a positive mental Attitude. If you are constantly bashing yourself and saying you’re not good enough, aren’t attractive enough, aren’t smart enough or athletic enough, and on and on, you are setting yourself up for failure. Positive affirmation are a GREAT way to develop a positive mental attitude. More on this on my next blog.

10. Be happy! Appreciate all the small and big stuff in your life. Life wouldn’t be the same without you so rejoice on your existence and what you mean to people. YOU can and will make a difference in yourself and your world!

Remember there is only 1 of YOU so shine your light to the world!

YOU are made for GREATNESS!

I love to reflect a lot on my growth from where it all began for me (winter of 2012, me, myself, and I with my thoughts and a heart beat telling myself “is this what becomes of me?”) and not knowing almost 3 years later that I would be the person I am today. Who ever knew this journey would lead me in the direction of who I am today.

michelle_soares_possibleThis journey never came easy and the fact that I literally had to pull myself together and take with me the pieces that I needed to get started was the most difficult thing I had to do for myself. When I was at my darkest point, I couldn’t see light, opportunity, possibility, hope or even think of dreaming. It was nothing but loneliness, heavy sadness, a loss of life, a disconnection between me and the world….. BUT there was something in me that kept drawing my attention inward. It felt like a very low dim light in me (like a candle flame ready to burn out) that kept me with some sort of hope. Hope that I couldn’t grasp but later come to understand that the dim light was my soul NOT ready to give up! My soul (my heart) was what was left of me to carry on through the days. Just knowing that my heart was trying to tell me something was all I needed to give myself a second chance and turn my life around. Once I shifted my energy that is when everything changed…..( and now I will save more for later) ;) BUT

this is my message to YOU:

Have no intention of looking back on your life unless its only to see how far you have come. There is no point to relive your life. You lived it, so move on! Its not worth living out the same fears and regrets and  reliving old patterns of thoughts and habits that were built from the past because they just create a prison within you suffocating your dreams and disconnection who you really are. Its these false beliefs that cause your dreams to die with you and keep you from creating a life you want!

To me life is all about creation. Have you ever given yourself the opportunity to create something beyond yourself? Something of your own making that is pure, beautiful and outstanding.

Screen Shot 2014-09-19 at 9.29.16 PMThe only way for your dreams/goals to be accomplished, is to push past your limitations that you created for yourself and for you to push past the barriers that others have created for you as well. Its crucial that you believe in yourself and all that you are because even if you help 1 person then that already has an impact on yourself and the world. Just imagine with your own uniqueness the difference you can make around you. Thank goodness we were all created differently. If we were all alike then this world would be the same…BORING!! This is why you follow your heart and not of others.

It doesn’t matter how big or small it is, all that matters is you’re doing something authentic, and unique that helps people. You cannot allow yourself to be intimidated by others. Just be inspired by your own creation and let the work speak for itself. Whether your work affects 7 people or 7 billion, Earth will be a better place and in the end that’s all that matters.  What matters is YOU!
