What If You Could Begin to Change the Course of Your Life By Following 12 Practical Steps?
… is my new e-book created specifically for those of us who not only struggle to get things done but struggle with believing we can do it in the first place!
I wrote this from a place of knowing what it’s like to see a goal in the distance but not know exactly how to get there. It’s for those of us who struggle with believing that we can accomplish our dreams. And there’s is one thing I can guarantee and that is, if you don’t believe you can do it, then you probably won’t.
After living through years of an abusive relationship, I was able free myself from a life of fear and abuse, finish college, raised millions of dollars as the executive director of a non-profit serving to the needs of the under-served, buy a home of my own and marry the true man of my dreams! You can read more about the challenges I’ve overcome here!
The fact is, no matter how great or small, accomplishing anything begins with having the basic and fundamental belief that you can do it! Our ability to believe in ourselves dictates the quality of our lives and the extent to which we can be of service to others. But very often we can be hindered by how we are perceived by others and most importantly, how we perceive ourselves.
From time to time we may find ourselves wrestling with indecisiveness, self-doubt, procrastination, laziness and/or a lack of self worth. And far too often live in sacrifice to those we love and those who sign our paychecks, rarely making our own personal needs a priority.
I’ve spent the last year studying the power of believing and the greatness it can cause. And here are my best strategies so far on not only how to begin to believe but how to see it through and get it done greatly!

Here is a sneak peek!
“To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.” –Douglas Adams
As the New Year rolls out, I had a revelation while I was doing my usual research on coaches, websites, writers, bloggers and entrepreneurs in the business of making us better. And this revelation really got me pretty worked up so if I appear to rant, forgive me.
What I realized was this.
There are thousands of people online in the business of making us better, professing to have the solutions for our happiness and success.
And among those I’ve researched, I noticed a few commonalities and maybe you have noticed them too.
They are that most are women with unrealistically beautiful hair and makeup. They’re very polished and appear to be overwhelmingly happy with big smiles and beautiful kids, husbands and lots of friends and live these amazingly wonderful lives all the time…bs!
And if you just subscribe to their site you’ll get some great free stuff! But if you want the real answers then you’ll have to sign up for their program designed specifically for you and pay a lofty one-time fee, or take advantage of their discounted payment plan which will only be offered for a limited time; so get in now!….sound familiar?
But as you find your way through their well-thought out pitches and strategically-placed graphics, you read that’s there’s a waiting list because they’re so great at what they do that everyone wants to get on board with them, so you gotta wait…unexpected bs!
My point here is not to discredit anyone but let’s be for real! Just like any business you have people who are in the business because it’s who they are and they run their business with the sincere intention of making people better. And then, there are those that are simply in it for the money!
I mean, I understand that everybody has to make a living and if you got it like that, and you have no problem sleeping at night, then gurl, make your money!
But shame on you!
As a woman I realize that when we are at our most vulnerable, we need to reach out and stand on hope and direction that can not only withstand the weight of our challenges but is strong and true enough to help carry us over. And these women know full well the weight or our challenges. But they bank on us diving in head-on, heart first and eyes closed!
The reality is you do pay for what you get and everyone’s work has value! But we don’t have time or money to waste on anything and anybody whose only true intentions are to get in our pockets!
So how do we wade through all the bs. and actually find what’s real? How do we avoid wasting our time and money on sh*t that’s just gonna leave us more frustrated, disappointed, disillusioned and more broke than we were before we clicked “pay now”?!
Ladies, it is up to us to establish our own criteria for vetting those we select to help make us better. Moreover, we have to continue to question what and who we’re gonna believe and why before we put out a dime!
But the truth is, sometimes we want it so bad, that we let down our guard and become completely exposed and vulnerable in every way.
Instead, try this….
1. Keep your sense of God given intuition and wisdom open and turned on. When turned on, females have a natural bullsh*t meter that goes off whenever someone is being insincere or deceptive. The challenge is when we get really passionate about something or someone; we can sometimes ignore the signs and then its too late!. So, stay tuned in and turned on, it will never let you down!
2. Make a list of all the people, male or female who have made a major impact in your life or who you have greatly admired; then make a list of their character traits and why they made such an impact on you. Now look for an inkling of these traits in anybody that you do business with. If they don’t resemble one of the “greats” in your life in some way, move on!
3. Ask yourself, “Is this how I’d do business?”
Make sure that whoever you’re considering doing business with is going about it in a way that doesn’t conflict with your own sense of decency, appropriateness, ethnics, honesty and compassion. And if they are doing business like you would, you’ll feel a greater sense of “success” even if it appears different from what is expected and that’s ok!
4. Can you really afford it? Get Creative!
Even if it everything really sounds good and seems to be the right fit but you have to rob Peter to pay Paul to afford it, stop! You’re just creating a problem that you’re going to have to deal with sooner or later. And it kinda puts a negative light on what you’re trying to accomplish in the first place.
If it’s right now, then it will still be right when you can afford it. Here are a few ideas.
- Create a mini savings’ plan and begin to set aside a small amount over a period of time until you have what you need.
- Contact the person providing the service and share with them how passionate you are about their program and ask if they have any other affordable options that would allow you to participate.
- Do a small crowd fund project on your blog or facebook and ask your friends or followers to invest in your dream.
- Keep looking. You may find something similar for free or more affordable somewhere else.
So that’s it!

As women, we wear so many labels and bare the cross for the pain and suffering of those we love and have loved. Its so important to member to reach out when we need to and trust that we are more worthy than we know!

Here is my Friday Sneak Peak from my soon to be released eBook, How To Begin To Believe, 12 Steps To Believing You Can Do What Nobody Ever Told You, You Could !
Step 3- Change Your Mind
“Change your mind about who you think you are. One of the primary reasons we wrestle with accomplishing certain goals is because we have adopted certain labels and character traits. Odds are, these labels were probably first given to us by our parents, siblings, friends etc. And because we love and trust these people, we believed them!
I was labeled “LAZY”. Ok, yeah this one was a little true for me. But I was also called smart, creative, and compassionate. The challenge was that I let the LAZY label, take priority over the smart, or creative label. I let it define me.
So, here’s how I changed my mind and how you can change yours too….”

As I was researching for this Monday Motivation post, I ran across this video from Jonathan Fields’ Good Life Project.
This video spoke to me so profoundly when I started inspirationenergy over a year ago. He talks about the power of mindset in determining success in life and work and it promotes his GLP Immersion. It inspired me to get inspirationenergy out of my head into the world.
Listening to it again, I know today, that I am in the right place and I am encouraged to keep going! Since I first heard of Jonathan Fields, I have not only started this blog, but I am writing my first book and I am announcing that I will soon be launching my new website, “lessons in greatness” which shares life lessons and practices, some I’ve experienced and some we will experience together on hard work, spirit, gratitude and purpose as a path to greatness in life and work and like John says, I work everyday to connect “who I am to what I do”.
Good Life Project was also featured as one of my 2013 Most Inspiring Turn-To Sites! So, I thought it would be great to post it again along with his “10 Commandments of Biz”. and I challenge you to listen the video, find a takeaway and move on it!
Ok…so there I was thinking that all I needed to move forward were the Right tools or what I thought were the right tools, in order to begin my journey to creating inspirationenergy. I needed a smart phone, ipod, etc. then my blog would look as good as all of the other blogs I admired, with all the pretty images and fonts and pages etc. And surely, I needed tweeting capacity, facebook, instagram-a-bility…all that, and if I got all this stuff, I’d be GREAT! So off I went! I purchased the best phone, tablet etc that my money could buy…greatness was just one click away!
So, there I was, at my computer with all my new gadgets, on and fully charged and…I’m waiting …and waiting …expecting that somehow greatness was going to jump from all my fancy expensive gadgets to the computer screen and instantly inspirationenergy would be born and I would have a million followers and Oprah would be calling me to give a Master Class!! Needless to say, this didn’t happen.
What I know now is my most valuable tool (outside of myself) was with me all along…they are my pencils and writing journals! My journals are filled with all of my ideas, resources, dreams, secrets, lists, mistakes, thoughts, goals and challenges and held everything I needed to get me on my way! They have no battery life, you don’t need a contract to own them, there are no monthly fees, you don’t have to register or subscribe to have access to them, they come in an infinite number of colors, sizes and styles, they are relatively hard to loose and they’re always there waiting for me whenever I need them….no questions, codes or passwords needed!
Don’t get me wrong, we all know that fancy gadgets have their place but don’t fool yourself into thinking that once I get this or have that, that…THEN, I can make things happen! What I know now is that you have everything you need NOW to accomplish what can be accomplished at this moment and if you can just start there, you’re way ahead of the game. -Robin

“There are people who can quickly memorize lists of thousands of numbers, the order of all the cards in a deck (or ten!), and much more. Science writer Joshua Foer describes the technique — called the memory palace — and shows off its most remarkable feature: anyone can learn how to use it, including him.”
