So Many Wake-Up Calls!

Answer The Wake-Up Calls!

Answer The Wake-Up Calls!

Posted by Marley M.

These past two months have been breakthroughs for me. After winning two bodybuilding titles last year, the drive and discipline died down until now I had changed my circle and i was back to where i first started before i became successful as an athlete, connecting with unsupportive people, groups who where not successful in my field. Being on our training calls has been a big wake-up call for me. As i have my business goals in place with my plan, i know that im connected with the people who are already successful here in Polaris. In the past i was more use to settling for most what people see working a job for a living. For me ive come to a point now where working a job is more expensive in time and money. The benefits i see to what we have here is not only financially rewarding, but more time on our hands. I here Shane alway’s talking about continually “empowering your mind and yourself” now i have gotten in to the habbit of making sure im feeling empowered everyday. One of my great hero’s who empower’s me is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s rules for success.

1. Trust and believe in yourself
You have to get clear to what’s important to you. You have to dig deep down and figure out what makes you happy

2. Break the rules
There are so many rules about everything, people tend to settle for the rules that keep you safe. Don’t be afraid to try something new

3. Don’t be afraid to fail
My hero Arnold Schwarzenegger had alot of failures in his life. He lost bodybuilding competitions, develop horrible movies, made mistakes as governor but in the end he made it to where he is now. You can;t always win but don’t be afraid to fail.

4. Don’t listen to the doubters and naysayers.
Their are alot of people who say that you can’t and won’t do something. You have to ignore them and keep moving towards what you want.

5. Work your butt off
As with anything in life, nothing comes without hard work. You can’t expect to get anywhere with your hands in your pockets. Arnold came to America with no money had nothing at all, but now he is one of the most successful guys in the world.

6. Be willing to give back
Arnold has given alot to the community and society. Giving back will give you more satisfaction than you ever through possible. That’s what i love about our business, is we give back to people who are looking for a better way.

The Truth Behind the Stoppers!

Stepping Up By Stepping Back!

Stepping Up By Stepping Back!

Posted by Brianna B.

Inspired by Amy Adams’ recent post ‘There’s no stop to the Polaris Global. Full Stop.” & Kirsty M’s post “Polaris Global Success Through Kindness-vs-Fear” (highly recommend reading if you haven’t yet)…

I began to think about stoppers and where their opinions/POVs are coming from, and my typical reactions when they do come into my life.

I received a rather confronting email from a bride to be (I’ll be photographing her wedding next month) with her feedback on the photos from a portrait session we did.

Basically, she wasn’t happy… something I’ve never really faced before. An un-happy bride.

My initial reaction was defensive, in my honest opinion I love the images I created and they’re completely on point with my photography branding & style.

My next reaction was defensive + confusion, why would she book with me if she didn’t like my style of photography?! That makes no sense!!

My next reaction was to stop and breath and read what she actually wrote, rather than between the lines from my own perspective.

I instantly felt compassion for my bride, she was concerned with the sunlight making her squint slightly in the photos. She admitted herself she loved everything but her eyes. It wasn’t the photos as much as the fact she’s hardly slept the past few days, it was 35 degrees and they had another appointment to rush off too. It’s nearly impossible to capture magic moments of a person’s true happiness when their mind is elsewhere.

My response was calm and solution focused. There are easy fixes on a wedding day with the correct planning to ensure a bride is comfortable & stress free (within reason of course). We’re now on the same page, phew!

I relate this to the truth behind stoppers because I feel we put the label onto others when they disagree, distract or refuse to accept what we are doing/trying to achieve. There was no stopper other than my initial reaction to some words in an email. The truth behind the stopper is our perception.

I can’t control another person’s emotions/reactions, but I can control how I react & conduct myself. At the end of the day I own my emotions, my actions and my reactions 100%.

Without the teachings of Beyond Freedom Evolution I’m not so sure this would be the case.

Don’t Let Challenges Hold You Back!

Don't Let Anything Hold You Back!

Don’t Let Anything Hold You Back!

Posted by Marley M.

Well this is my first live post to be put on the blog, some of my experiences. February is almost over, already 2 months in the new year. I’m finally getting out of my comfort zone, doing more than ive had in the past to make some things happen with my business this year. Earlier this month i got a new phone and Internet plan and started having alot of technical issues, phone calls cutting off and the training calls as well. Ive now had to revert back to my old one but its good enough for what i need to do. Also my computer crashed and had to reinstall all my apps and software again. Then i had a thought what would a successful person do? if something didn’t workout they keep on going to get there. As far as my business goals here, i also have fitness goals this year to take 3 titles in competition bodybuilding. I have nutrition issues and stuff like that like anyone else does. Eating perfectly everyday is a challenge, but its the rewards at the other side that make you feel accomplished. Just a quick post, so don’t let anything hold you back from reaching your goals!.

Setting Sail For Freedom!

Setting Sail For Freedom!

Posted by Lisa R.

We got home yesterday from an amazing two weeks away in the Caribbean. As I always do, I brought along my phone and laptop and worked my Polaris Global business in the nooks and crannies of my holiday.

Our first stop was a week aboard a sailboat. It just so happened that the name of our vessel was “Freedom”. Coincidence? I think not! I have always been attracted to the word “freedom” I find that it vibrates on a higher frequency for me and I am constantly seeing the word in my day-to-day environment. Aboard our sailboat “Freedom” we snorkelled daily, went scuba diving, had unlimited food and drinks prepared for us and each day had at least a 3-4 hour sail on the ocean.

At first my stomach did not agree with being on the water. I felt a bit queasy on our first day but soon got over it once I told my mind that I was feeling better. I have never been much of a water person, however, over the last 8 years or so I have pushed myself way out of my comfort zone and tried snorkelling (and LOVE it now), tried scuba diving (and LOVE it too!) as well as saying yes to boat rides and activities on the water.

It is absolutely no wonder that we ended up on a sailboat called “Freedom” because that is ultimately what is waiting for all of us on the other side of our comfort zone!

Empowering Goal Setting

Empowered to Win!

Empowered to Win!

Posted by Rabbiah D.

Empowering Goal Setting is a new radical approach to goal setting with Shane and Rachel Krider and Beyond Freedom Evolution.

Listening to this months Empowering Goal Setting Formula, an additional supplemental piece in the Beyond Freedom Evolution program – it’s clear to see that Shane and Rachel Krider have walked the path less travelled and learned the winning approach to goal setting.

Essentially, effective goal setting is about feeling like you’re winning. I’ve been setting targets that are so big, that even the thought of them has had me feeling deflated and defeated. After listening to the audio, I can clearly understand why I have been falling and failing and feeling reluctant to commit to new goals.

With this new insight, I can set myself up to win every day in small ways and in the long run it ads up to a big win! Yes, goals setting is about the big picture but more so, its about the every day little steps that get you there. Now I no longer feel like there’s something wrong – other than the unreal short-term expectations I’ve had on myself!

Now I can feel like I’m winning and this perpetuates my positive actions and results. I’m actually allowed to start small and build into a bigger momentum! Feeling free to do this is such a relief! Feeling like it’s ok if I don’t set the world on fire in the first week takes so much pressure off and allows me the space to create a pattern of success.

Thanks Shane and Rach, the Empowering Goals Setting supplemental in Beyond Freedom Evolution releases me from the frantic feelings I can have to grind out a goal, and that’s a massive win!

Getting Stronger Every Day!

Get Up! Get Back At It!

Get Up! Get Back At It!

Posted by Daisy H.

BFE talks about doing things that are not popular in order to get the result. On Valentine’s day you would have found me passing out flyers during the dinner hour. I was busy tuning into the universe on a deep level. While thinking about the goal that I want to accomplish this month, I tripped on the cement, both knees hands and cheek kissed the ground. It took me back to childhood, and scraped knees because of excitement. I happily got up and continued on my way. I made sure that I passed out every single flyer I had. (I only had enough for 3/4 of the area.) I felt good for the accomplishment of my record, the most flyers and 13,000 steps as weight loss is on my list too.

When I got home, I received one inquiry. :( I was questioning weather this is a viable option, weather it is worth my time. The next day, I receive an inquiry that says ” I received a flyer on my door and accessed the website and suddenly I’m filling out all of my info trying to find a new career.” That statement is why I do what I do. The universe has answered with “keep going”. I spoke with the person, they are perceptive like I am. We see someone close to us living a certain way and we “know for ourselves” that is not how we want to live. The vision of the future is bigger than our current situation.

P.S. BFE is absolutely amazing this week, I feel more strength every single day. I fall, but I do happily stand up afterwards.

Polaris Global Success Through Kindness-vs-Fear

Kindness Is King!

Kindness Is King!

Posted by Kirsty M.

I was inspired to write this after reading Greg Strom’s blog on www.TheMileThatMatters.com about acting out of Fear vs Kindness.

I feel that a shift has taken place in my Polaris business, around the “why” behind what I do. I am SO passionate about helping Mums & Dads be home with their kids and not be chained to the corporate clock. I love to assist people to see that they do have a second chance when perhaps they’ve experienced failure in their career or previous business venture. I get such a thrill from helping people to realize their full potential & to “get more out of life”, because these were all the things that brought me here – wanting to be with my kids, wanting to build again after losing everything and wanting to get the most out of life that I possibly can. And I’ve achieved so much, and I’m excited about achieving so much more.

When I read Greg’s blog that I mentioned above I realized that early on I was operating my Polaris Global business out of “Fear” – the fear of losing again in life, the fear of having to find a job, the fear of not succeeding & losing hope on my dreams. And then after a while, after achieving some of my smaller goals, I started to think bigger and I heard Shane Krider speak about truly being dialed into your “why” and that when you are, just try to stop yourself from taking the actions required to achieve your Goals. This is absolutely how I feel every single day in my business. Now I know I am operating out of Kindness, because I cannot NOT offer this opportunity to people who really want change – in all good ways.

Realising this has helped me to express kindness in so many other ways.

Are you clear on your why?

Are you behaving from a place of Kindness?

Look To this Day!

Hope For Us All!

Hope For Us All!

Posted by Portia D.

Look to this day!
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course
Lie all the verities and realities of your existence:
The bliss of growth
The glory of action
The splendor of beauty
For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow only a vision;
But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore to this day!
Such is the salutation to the dawn.
~ Kalidasa, Indian Poet

I simply love this poem. I want to share it with those of you who my not be familiar with it. It is so profound and resonates with all that Beyond Freedom Evolution teaches. The practice of being present and appreciating the Power of Now reminds us that all we have is this moment. All else is merely an illusion ~ albeit a very persistent one, as observed by Albert Einstein. So ofter our minds are preoccupied with thought of past regrets or worrying about the future. When we surrender to the present moment we are empowered. This mindful awareness can be a real challenge, but if we are able to master this state of consciousness, we can transform our experiences. By taking one step at a time, being fully present to what IS, allows us to truly live from an authentic place of gratitude and appreciation for life. And that is the hope for us all!

Letting Ourselves Grow with Beyond Freedom Evolution!

Go Ahead!  Let Yourself Grow!

Go Ahead! Let Yourself Grow!

Posted by Phil P.

Personal growth takes time. It is a slow process, but as we grow up, we can outgrow a lot of things that have held us back – fears, negative attitudes, intolerance, to name just a few. Sometimes my personal growth involves the understanding that I don’t know as much as I thought I did.

Building a Polaris Global business is a lot like that. The more I learn from our Beyond Freedom Evolution program, and the distinctions that Shane Krider reveals in his content, the more I realise there is to learn.

As we grow older, we come to see more clearly just how much more we need to grow. We realize that simple answers do not fit every situation. We try to learn from our failures, to trust our instincts and to respond more often from a wiser foundation and seek a bigger perspective from our more experienced colleagues.

We have all come a long way, but have a long way yet to grow. And that is true of every area of our lives.

If you’re not yet the person you want to be, can you be patient as you grow? Even the mightiest tree begins as a frail seed. And some seeds are like the Chinese Bamboo Tree, which spends four years in the ground before it breaks the soil, then can grow 90 feet tall in just 5 weeks!

Be patient. We can go through life, or we can grow through life.

Let’s be grateful that we are planted in the most fertile soil of all – Polaris Global with Beyond Freedom Evolution.

Do What You Love Every Day!

Find Your Passion!

Find Your Passion!

Posted by Brianna B.

Have you ever dreamed and visualised about doing what you love one day?
Have you ever thought “if I just _______ I could do what I love every day”?

Well here is my challenge to you, find what you love, recognise what it is you love about it and write down everything you could do that would eventuate to you doing that thing you love every day. Even the small stuff, especially the small stuff.

Then start doing the little stuff and soon you will either realise you don’t actually love doing ‘the thing’ or you do. When you love the process more than the result you truly do have a passion for it.

Here’s a video I did the other week and posted on my social media.
