Throwing your hat in the ring

Posted by Caroline B

Why we don’t step up to the plate.

After being at our training conference today I had time to myself driving home.

As the thoughts of the day run through my head I realised over the course of the day that I’ve just been too hard on myself.Hat

I have been doubting myself for so long and not stepping up to the plate. Have you ever heard of “Make sure that you get what you come for” (thanks Kirsty). I got that in the first five minutes of the afternoon, are you taking this serious? The answer is a big fat NO.

The reason why that I have been doubting my ability and I think that over time we don’t step up to the plate straight away when we certainly have had the opportunity. Then because we have not stepping up to the plate we start to retract into ourselves and just cant find a way out. I as I stand here today I encourage everyone to stand up and be noticed as Lise said the other day on a call day “be loud and proud“. Thanks to our personal development program we just have to depart from where we are make a decision and then take action.

Some of the things that we have to remember everyday.

  • Be serious about what you want and go for it
  • Every day stand up and be counted and decide what are 2 steps today you are going to take
  • Follow through on every thing that you do and don’t do it half hearted
  • Change your thoughts on what is possible – believe that everything is possible.
  • Make a decision and back it up with action
  • It’s not what happens it’s what you do about it.
  • Be the CEO of your own company everyday without fail
  • Believe in yourself, don’t doubt yourself
  • They can do it I CAN DO IT
  • Be do have
  • Make bigger decisions
  • Have to be the leader you have to become the leader
  • I am the person I could be

We all can go from O to hero as Sir Richard Branson says “Screw it lets do it”.

Picking Yourself up on a SLOW day

Posted by Cathy W
So today has started out as one of those ‘Slow’ days for me. Cathy Walcroft 2-1
I attended the Business Presentation in Brisbane all day yesterday and loved every moment. Being surrounded by the positive energy in the room really inspired me and motivated me to get my business on track.
I drove home with my head so full of ideas and learnings but thankfully I did get a good nights sleep.
Today, however I woke up feeling very sluggish. So much in my mind and just not sure where to start.
Is it ok to have a ‘slow’ day? I believe it is as long as I am still doing something.
So I am allowing myself today to take a few more breaks, focus on one thing at a time and enjoy the whole process.
I started the day doing my Tai Chi and then having some time in the garden to reflect on all the possibilities that I have at my fingertips. Then I picked out just 3 things that I wanted to achieve today.
I can be hard on myself on these sorts of days and push myself so much that I end up not really achieving a lot and then get to the end of the day feeling very frustrated and incomplete.
I know for me personally I cannot run at 100mph every day and I know if I listen to my body and acknowledge what I am feeling that I end up being way more productive long term.
It is a beautiful day here in QLD and I have set my work space up in the garden. My dog is sitting right next to me and I am just so grateful that I can chose where I am going to work.
Today is turning out to be a good day.

Taking in what you are learning

Posted by Caroline B

Somedays we can hear what we are being taught, but if we don’t have our listing ears on it just won’t sink in (thanks to KM son have your got your listing ears on mummy). IMG_1612

My thoughts on how to take things in.

Turn everything else off when you are listening
Take notes
If it is a recording stop and start it as many time that you have to to hear what the person said
Live take quick notes and the go back and go over the recording, I bet you get something different out of it the second time
Write a blog about what you have heard it will sink into your mind a lot more
Take action on what you have learnt
Set goals on the new things that have triggered inspiration in you

It only takes a brief moment for inspiration

I have often thought to myself no I wont go for that walk this morning

I don’t want to go for a walk this morning i’ll have a day off
Its much nicer in here in bed
Too cold out there
Im too tired
I will be late for work if I go for a walk
You probably be late even if you don’t go for a walk
I will go for a walk when I come home
Tomorrow is another day I will go for a bigger walk tomorrow
No one is expecting me to walk with them

I have use those excuse and so many more  then biggest thing is that we have to have that goal what ever it is, other wise we can not create that inspiration to do something.

As silly as it sounds I wanted to draw with felt pens and colouring pens (doodling art) (Abstract Art) and today I bought myself a sketch book and started my abstract art, It only too one moment to get inspired to buy a sketch book to do my drawings in. But this has taken my some time to get motivated to start back my hobby. I had made some many excuse to take time out for myself. One moment in a meeting (thanks to PO said she once had a conversation with Jim Rohn) you have to work harder on yourself than you business. I can remember this as she said it yesterday even tho it was about 3 – 4 years ago.

Inspiration only takes one moment we just have to open to be inspired.

Always a winner with Polaris Global

Posted by Lisa R

Woohoo! I am still buzzing with the excitement of winning the latest blog competition with Polaris Global! The top blogger prize is an all-expenses paid trip to stay in a castle in Ireland with the top 3 income earners in the company. WOW! What an opportunity – I can’t decided if I am more excited for the castle stay or the opportunity to mastermind with the top most successful business owners in Polaris Global.

I set my sights on winning the competition when it was announced last year at our Influence Live event in Denver, Colorado and I have been blogging my “know you what” off for the last year to achieve it. I know that as a result of participating in the blogs that my business has soared. My lead flow, conversions, and overall energy around my Polaris Global business has increased as a result of sharing my wins on this platform.
As was announced on the call, the next blog competition will be announced at this upcoming business training event in Brisbane on Sunday. I would be setting the goal, now, as I did last year to knock out the next top prize.
See you at the top!

It would be so different if I did not procrastinate

Posted by Caroline B

I started thinking back over my life in the last 10 years or so and things could have been so  different if I did not procrastinate. Thing is you just have to think about things that could of been so much different if you just made a decision sooner (not forgetting about the lesson that I now have learnt because I did not)

To cut a long story short last week on a training call I realised that I am a procrastinator.

Glad that I did not procrastinate and got up to walk that morning.

The day after my wake up call I did not hesitate to get out of bed to go for a walk and I’m so glad that I did.

I’ll share with you just a few things from my 1/2 hour walk.

As I set off for my walk at 6am in the morning I did not take so much notice that it was a very foggy morning as I was turning the corner it was very eerie that the fog was nestled down the valley over the hills.

My walk takes me down the road up a incline down a hill and then up another incline. As I was travelling along the road there was a very crisp clean feel about the air around me.

Normally on my walk I would see a few horses, ducks, maybe a kangaroo or two, and also a miniature horse.

On this morning I felt that I had walked back into yesterday era, it was as if the valley had been taken in time.

As I walked back after reaching the end of the road and turning back there was a white horse and its mate a miniature horse standing at the edge of the fence, but I did not see them on the way down, its like the were covered in fog only moments ago.

Then I came across a old cattle loading dock that had taken me back in time, I know that this had been there all the time when I walked but this particular morning it was like the fog had been lifted and I could see the beauty around me.

Up the road as I travelled along I could not see the top of the hill even that it was only metres away, this is when another eerie feeling come over me.

Fog kept on moving along with me and until I reached what I call the summit the fog lifted only for a moment or two.

There was another eerie feeling coming over me that the fog had taken the hill that I had already travelled down not knowing what was on the other side.

The ducks were not even making a sound it was like they were under instructions to keep the noise down.

Another property they have a couple of fires ready to go for a family gathering, the fires are all stacked up to form a peak, something that not everyone knows how to do these days.

There’s a few horses up the road and one was watching me, and it was like he had come down to say “I’m watching you to see are you ok” or on the other hand was he saying please keep a eye on me.

I know it’s been a long story but the thing is what I did experience that morning I would not experienced if I was still in bed Procrastinating about going for a walk.

Stop procrastinating and enjoy your time on this planet as you have very little time.

Over coming Obstacle 1 – FEAR

Posted by Vanessa M

I’m early on in my BFE journey and  I found myself  wondering why things are not happening as I suspected they would or should. So I use my journal to reflect and ponder this question.

I have come face to face with my first obstacle fear.

But what is fear and why is it so paralyzing? Why does my body respond with a physiological reaction? How does it have such an effect on my emotions? What is my personal experience of fear?

I find myself snapping at the kids, my back hurts, my jaw is clenched tight, I feel a constant irritating tingle in my forehead. This seems more than just the flight or fight response normally associated with fear because it stays with me for days. I’m neither flighting nor fighting. I just have anger bubbling under the surface. I try to conceal it but it spurts through the cracks every time I’m pushed just a little closer to boiling point. I’m angry at myself and I’m angry that I’m angry. I don’t like to feel this way. But what exactly am I fearful of and why does it manifest as anger. I Can’t seem to find joy in my day, I’m eager to move my body, I can’t sit still but when I move I don’t really seem to get anywhere or achieve anything. I know this feeling is counterproductive and not in alignment with creation and this just makes me feel more frustrated.

Finally I do boil over and my anger turns to sadness and tears. My pent up frustrations are finally release. I cry, I’m woeful, where did I go wrong? I feel so off track, so derailed.

I decide it’s time to stop and breath. JUST BREATH. The tension I have  just released from my body has given me the space to see more clearly.

FEAR! HOW DARE YOU! You are nothing but a state of mind. You took a single negative thought and that was all the kindle you required to start a raging fire. The more you started to burn the more power of destruction you had. Well guess what? You have no power over me because it is I who has the power to create you and I also have the power to cease you. It’s a conscious choice to extinguish you and I chose to believe a life of unlimited potential. I can be, do, have anything! Fear is not the enemy. I am my own enemy If I give fear the power to burn inside of me. I chose to use my will power to replace negative thought. I chose gratitude and love, I chose personal development and BFE to fortify my stance in overcoming fear and living the life I love.

I am grateful for this journey.

Treating Every Day like New Years

Posted by Brianna B

Today I had a flash back of 2012 Super Saturday. This was my first event. I was 21 years old and a nerves wreck thinking “what am I even doing here”.  I entered the room to meet the most amazing people I think I will ever meet. Some people in the company call this the “head to heart” moment we experience at our first event. For a long time I kept thinking I haven’t had that moment, I’ve gone to 5 events now and loved all of them, however because I didn’t have the financial success I had come here for just yet I couldn’t see myself having that moment. When was my moment?!

Kirsty M was our MC for Super Saturday. She ended the day with a great line that has stuck with me for the past 2 years ‘You don’t have to wait for a new year, a new month or even Monday to start working towards your goals, treat today like it’s New Years, decide on your new year’s resolution and start taking the steps to achieve those goals’.

Today it hit me, I realized I did have that moment; the second Alison (my enroller) welcomed me and gave me a hug, Polaris went from my head to my heart. I now know that by not recognizing our ‘aha’ moments in this business we could potentially be blocking ourselves to more success. SO, I thought about this some more and had an even deeper realization that I get to have this “head to heart” moment every day I choose Polaris, because I know in my heart this is the place for me.

I am so grateful for the opportunities here, and even more grateful for the amazing community who make this a ‘head to heart’ kinda business.

Exciting New Training with Polaris Global

Posted by Brianna B

Holly smokes! I am so excited and pumped up after today’s Global Team Call, training on YouTube marketing. I remember dabbling a little in YouTube videos a year or so ago, I found it to be very time consuming and not seeing any results other than maybe 30-40 views per video. Don’t get me wrong, I actually loved making the videos and talking about the topics, I just had no clue how to market it!

I am totally blown away by the training we are receiving here, seriously WHO ELSE trains like this? No one! (that I’ve found anyway) so clear and so concise with simple step by step tasks. With the key distinctions we are learning already I can see the massive potential for this company to expand like CRAZY through limitless topics. I’m so excited to meet the people who will be attracted to this amazing business because of the training we learn today.

I’m already writing my 30 keywords and starting my research, it’s so limitless!! I love the doors our training opens and I love the way Rachel & Shane present it.

Thank you guys for re-opening my mind to a method of marketing at first I was excited and then disappointment, now with your key distinctions I’m excited and equip with a much stronger vision for where I can take it.

Who else is with me on the YouTube band wagon?!

Focusing on our Polaris Global dreams

Posted by Phil P

If you’re like me, you have often started on something new with great positive energy and made great progress in the beginning. Then, after only just a few short days, our enthusiasm begins to wane.

In all great pursuits, there will be some resistance

In all great pursuits, there will be some resistance

Why do we do that?  It all starts when we lose our focus on what we originally wanted! Life gets in the way and we are forced to attend to other things that have absolutely nothing to do with our new project. It seems by the time we get back to our original project, the enthusiasm we once had for it has lost its freshness.

This is what goes wrong for me; I lose control over my thoughts when the urgent things in life have to be dealt with. At that point I stop creating the things I wanted in my life long term by changing my focus to the urgent things that are currently going on.

Here’s the bottom line: Focus requires discipline. We must remain in control of our thoughts and actions at all times in order to make the most of our life.

So, the next time I start on a new part of my business with great positive energy, I know it won’t be long before something urgent will try to steal my focus. But I am going to be ready for it next time, and when that urgent circumstance is over, I will seek the discipline to get my focus back to where it should be – to achieving my dreams of living a fulfilled and successful life through my Polaris Global business.

Name all the things you love

Posted by Bart

2I recently read a tweet that asked me to name all the things I love. I’m posing that question to you. You may list your family, your children, your pet(s), and for many of us our work. For me, cheesecake and frozen yogurt would also be on that list!

This list can be exhaustive and take some time to complete. Soon our love expresses what we are grateful for. Gratitude is a very powerful emotion. Gratitude is defined as the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. Cannot that also be applied to love and the things we love?

The original tweet was “If I asked you to name all the things you love, how long before you name yourself? Don’t forget to save some love for YOU! #YouDeserveIt

So, were you on your list and how close to the top of that list were you? Until you love yourself others are not receiving the love they deserve.

I want to thank my friend Billy P for the tweet. It certainly made me think and inspired me to share this blog with you.
