Life Writes Extraordinary Stories...doesn't it?
Just last Wednesday, I was enjoying the company of my second guest at my 3rd Become an Author with Ease by the Sea Elite Author Retreat in Venice Beach, Florida. What I had imagined and created months ago was showing up in my reality; a full-house, sold-out private event.
And while I wasn't paying attention, with an ocean at my feet, peace, calm and creative energy abound, (a reflection of my personal mindset), the outside world was bathing in the emotions of fear. I was completely oblivious.
I soon understood that all I had learned, practiced and taught about mindset mastery would be called into practice. I would not allow any of the outside world to influence making smart decisions. I packed up early and traveled safely home.
The good news? A period of self-quarantine with an opportunity to be massively productive.
“If there has ever been a time in history to take control of your focus and attitude, that time is NOW, my friend. We can be calm, thoughtful, positive and productive, and yes, joyful, even amid the chaos.” ~ Brendon Burchard
After I acclimatized, I made the shift from what was supposed to be, to what was: the gift of creative energy, innovation, questions and answers from an entirely new perspective and awareness.
Practicing radical self-care is important; healthy eating, daily walks, and even more "bread for the head" study of material that feeds my mind. I leaned in and asked what is best for me at this moment. I used my mind as my workshop and source of inspiration and realized that creativity is my best connection to self. That was where I knew to begin.
I would write.
Writing is not only therapeutic, cathartic and a wellness habit, but it has always served as my remedy for reflection, understanding, and re-calibration. It is my craft and my art. What is your go-to remedy to solve, understand or evolve? How do you ground yourself? Is it Art? Physical activity? Meditation? Sports?
We create our reality from the inside out. What we focus on expands. It's important to remember how easy it is to allow the momentum of the outer world's collective unconscious, to control our thinking.
We are blessed with the ability to choose our thoughts. Our thoughts create our feelings. Our feelings dictate our behavior, and our actions create our results. This current state of affairs had become the teacher and I was a grateful student.
I remembered one of the nuggets I learned from Grant Cardone: When the world contracts (and it will contract), embrace your opportunity to expand. This translated into CREATION in my language. (Little did I know I would implement that message only two weeks later.)
I created an inventory of all the goals, targets and activities I would focus on creating and expanding.
I want to help YOU create and expand too. I want to help you shape the ideas for your future. I want to help you imagine what your life feels like 3-6-12 months from now, and how to begin TODAY to put that AS IF script into motion.
Every Wednesday at 8 pm EDT, I host The Writers Group for Aspiring Authors on Zoom. I want to invite you all to join me for a special edition tomorrow night (and future calls as well). I want you to learn how to CREATE your world as you imagine it to be. We think in pictures. I'll share how to bring those pictures into the present. The decisions you make about your future today will be your reality tomorrow.
These times offer us an incredible opportunity to believe in our own power. I will offer you strategies from my own mindset mastery toolkit that will guarantee you stay away from the buffet of fear, laser focus on what you want, and take inspired action so your world begins to expand instead of contract.
Here's the link to register. It's free, creative, and FUN. Connection with others is key to your success.
Once registered, you'll receive the Zoom videoconference link.

You have nothing to lose; only growth and expansion to gain!
While I was creating, this passage showed up. I loved it. I thought you might too:
“And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.
And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.
And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed." ~ Kitty O'Meara
See you tomorrow.
