So this is it!!! One of my goals for 2016 is Stepping on National Stage on August 13, 2016 in New Westminster, BC. This has been a goal that I have been working since 2012. The struggle is definitely real. This journey has literally made me the person I am today! I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I honestly cannot wait to see what the next 32 weeks will be. I would be lying if this goal doesn’t scare me but like the quote says “If the dream is not big enough then they’re not big enough”! So with that said, I have my coach by my side, I have my Complete Active Living​ girls around me, I have my mom and my sister, I have ALL of YOU who are following my journey, I have my mind, body and soul in it and most importantly I have the Man upstairs holding me strong! I am coming for whats mine 2016!!! www.michellesoares.com

Inspirational stones

Why is it that people never follow through with their goals? They muster up all this energy at the beginning, feeling hyped, excited and motivated and then in a short while there back into their old ways.

I wondered about this because this was me awhile back. I couldn’t quite understand it. I know I wanted change but everything I did wasn’t good enough or never led me in the direction to achieving what I wanted.

Then something happened one day. After a traumatic event in my life and at my deepest and most difficult time in my life where I thought nothing was possible, I felt a burning emotion rupturing inside me. I felt within me this desirable need for change in me and it never left me. I felt this was the foundation (a burning desire) to transform my life. It was this feeling that pushed me everyday. Gave me purpose everyday. Gave me hope everyday. Gave me belief everyday but most importantly this feeling gave me a dream!

I knew this feeling wanted more for me then I could imagine for myself and therefore I let it lead me (I had nothing to lose as I thought I had lost everything already) BUT in order to connect with it fully I needed to change my mindset. I had to change my beliefs, find my values and make a plan.

Now as I fast forward my life, my conclusion is this. Belief is the foundation to making change in your life. Without it is like suffocating your body of oxygen. You pretty much will be running in circles expecting results.

Let me explain what I mean:

For example: If I set a goal to lose 10 pounds in 3 months. I focus on my goal, I take the necessary steps to change my lifestyle and all is good, right?! All is good so far but yet on an unconscious level I have a deep rooted belief that people around me (especially close friends and family) have tried to lose weight and never succeeded. What will that do for me? With this disconnection, my belief will override my goal to lose 10 pounds in 3 months.  My belief will lead me to run a pattern that says its meant to be really hard or even impossible to lose weight. This is what I call a limiting belief and no matter how hard I work to lose weight, if I don’t change my beliefs of being fit then it will only be short lived and back to square 1.

This is why its vital on your journey to focus on what you want in your life, to understand your own belief system and the impact this has on your goals. You will need to change your beliefs so that your goals and beliefs are totally aligned….BUT  beliefs are held on an unconscious level so how can you figure out what your beliefs are? As an NLP coach I specialize in Positive Mind Set changes. If you are interested in wanting to know your limiting beliefs and break free from them then click here and we ca work together.

Here is another example to help you understand:

EXAMPLE 1: Believe I can’t get fit

The Cycle:

I don’t want to be fat. I prepare my exercise schedule. I join the gym and start exercise regularly. After a couple of weeks I begin to make excuses to myself to avoid exercising. I begin to exercise less often. I get demotivated when I don’t see any improvement in my fitness. I get increasingly fed up with myself. When I’m fed up I eat more. I even begin to put on weight and I’m less fit than when I started. I drove my belief to myself.

EXAMPLE 2: Believe I can get fit easily

The Cycle:

I have a vision of how great I will look and feel when I’m fit. I prepare my exercise schedule. I join the gym and start exercise regularly. I feel excited and motivated as I notice my body shape changing. I notice my weight starting to reduce. I feel good about myself and look forward to showing off the new me. I buy myself some new clothes to reward myself. I continue to get fitter. I reach my target fitness and weight.  I prove my belief to myself.

Because beliefs are unconscious one way to know about your beliefs is to reflect on your parents attitude to relationships, money, career, etc or your attachments to significant people in your lives. You may be unconsciously be modelling them.

There is a quote ‘ Whether you think you can’t or you think you can you are right’. Your beliefs shape your reality.

Now with this new found information will you spend your time focused on your empowering or limiting beliefs about yourself?

Awareness is the first step to change,

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!
