Creating a Habit of Right Action – Day 3


Today’s word is INFLUENCE.

As you do your daily right actions designed to create your new success habit, and stay on course with your commitment to be at your highest and best to impact the world, you exist within a sphere of influence. We all do, being all human.

The question today is…or rather, the suggestion is this:

Define your circle of influence:

  • What and who influences you?
  • Who do you influence?
  • Basically what is your sphere of influence?

KNOWING what impacts you and who you impact is powerful.
Powerful because you first have to know a thing before you can change it, grow it or stop it.

  • Within your sphere are you doing any influencing?
  • What are the habits of those who influence you?
  • And their beliefs – do they support or conflict with your own idea of your potential?
  • Who are the supporters of your vision, your potential and your goals?
  • About the people you hang with…do they support, detract or have no impact?

Check out this list and determine who/what influences you the most among the listed factors.  As you go about creating new success habits with daily right actions, knowing what  impacts and influences you is essential.

Choose your top 5:

1.   loved ones- family members – close
2.   loved ones – family members – distant (family heroes, deceased, etc)
3.   readings – articles, news, Facebook/online links and leads
4.   poetry, biographies, plays, music
5.   videos, movies, tv
6.   your own beliefs of either limit/lack or abundance
7.   education – formal or self taught
8.   your fears and anxieties
9.   fears and anxieties of others
10. memories – the past
11.  loved ones – friends
12.  loved ones – romantic attachments
13.  role models, mentors, coaches
14.  your own behaviors and recent actions
15.  your spiritual beliefs, heroes and guides, scripture

Determine your sphere of influence and the specific source of major influence as best you can.  Reflect on whether what is influencing you is consistent with your goals, potential and visions for yourself.

Sometimes it is necessary to make adjustments in behaviors and relationships to ensure best results.

Alignment is always good but sometimes just not possible. So we do the best with what we’ve got…but…at least be aware of what impacts your mind, spirit, emotions and psyche.

As usual, please continue with daily activities as committed.

Have a thoughtful and insightful day!

Wishing you an abundance of light, love and joy,

Right Actions: Day 2


I was on my way here to share a message with you about your vision for your life after these next 20 days.  As part of that message I planned to suggest you reflect on your examples from your life – experienced or read-about.

Well before getting here, I happened to read a blog post from one of our participants about the power of making the bed! She mentions as well the lesson learned from her Mom…SO me, a lover of synchronicity, had to add her post to his message.

Check it out here, it’s so good! ►

The power of doing those small daily things cannot be over-emphasized!

And it’s really powerful to figure out what your PDMD’s (personal daily must-do’s) are. As you know, it can make the difference between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ days; productive and unproductive days.

Suggested activities for today:

1)  Read the above blog

2)  DO your daily activities – symbolic

3)  DO those ‘right actions’ you committed to in order to complete or significantly begin your last 2009 project

3)  Reflect on this: your vision of you and your life 20 days from now, after completion of said project – see this image in all the specific details you can muster

4)  Who in your life (real or read) exemplifies this life? It’s always helpful, even powerful to identify those who’ve done what you’re doing

5)  Identify clearly WHO will benefit in addition to yourself from the completion or start of this ‘project.’ [Even with personal habit changes, other people benefit, sometimes from the joy of an improved you in an improved relationship]

…I’m a bit off schedule so I’ll bid a hasty farewell…Until tomorrow

Love & Light

Right Action: Day 1 of 21 Days!

Hello there! [to participants of 75 Days of Action Challenge on Facebook]

I got so excited when I happened onto a tidbit of intriguing information — that Handel wrote the Messiah in 21 days!!

Well after a little digging I gather it was NOT done in 21 days. While that was a bummer to discover as it suited our purpose here so sweetly, it appears he still impressed!

He completed the Messiah —  ‘one’ of the most beautiful pieces of music, imho — in 24 days.  Another source said 25 days; all 3 sections, 53 separate pieces, choruses, recitatives and airs in twenty-four days!  It’s reported that he worked so steadily during these 3 weeks he often forgot to eat.

Fact is A WHOLE LOT can be done in 3 short weeks.

SO — what have you decided to accomplish over the next 21 days?

You can take your life in a whole new and inspired direction or you can complete something started and needs to be fully realized or you can begin a new series of behaviors that will lead to your highest and best self.

Whatever it is…START it TODAY.


RIGHT ACTION” are those actions that if done daily WILL take you to the place you most long to be. This is intentionally left open for interpretation.

This is my interpretation: Right actions for me on a daily basis are connected to universal love. Starting with my well-being, they keep me healthy, organized, productive and focused on loving and helping people.

  • Universal love is right action.
  • Personal health is right action.
  • Service is right action.
  • Productivity is right action.

So on a daily basis, I do things to remain healthy – emotionally, mentally and spiritually. This used to be a long list of PMD’s – [personal must-do’s, I actually used a chart and still encourage others to do this] that I checked off daily. Today much of it is on automatic because deeply ingrained habits have been created.

I also do things daily in the service of others.

On a daily basis – with some exceptions, I try to be productive at my highest level. Sometimes that productivity is about order and organization, like today, a couple of hours will be spent on my office space.

This is how I conceive of and  implement “right action.”   What’s important is for you to be crystal clear about what your daily right actions must be in order for you to create your highest and best possible life.

Over the next 21 days I suggest you spend time DAILY engaged in those right actions you decided upon during our planning phase – the last 2 days.

Suggested Activities for today:

1)  Write out clearly what your daily actions will be (you have the opportunity here to create multiple new habits – GO FOR IT!)

2)  Select a combination of daily actions that support each other. For instance if early bedtime/rising [or any other personal routine] is your desire, select a series of actions that will make that happen. Often what we wish to accomplish requires specific PLANNING, setting up the environment, supportive personal behavior and informing others and so forth.
If it’s implementing an idea…write out ALL of the action steps required and then break it up in 21 portions, doing a specific set of things each day.

3)   Continue your symbolic actions and any others you started in the last series…or decided to begin today.

4)  Create a visual representation of your RIGHT ACTIONS – draw it, use clip art or pictures…Create something you can see daily.

5)  Contact your accountability partner and discuss your plans – use whatever format works and you haven’t try SKYPE…

NOTICE: if anyone would like an accountability partner, there is someone in touch with me who would like to team up. Let me know asap.

6)  Write about the challenges you anticipate and your plan for handling each one of them [if you haven’t already, have a book/journal dedicated to this journey, random pieces of paper will not work]

7)  Have fun, smile, laugh…share your enthusiasm and excitement with someone.

That’s seems like a lot…but it’s worth the time and effort. Recall your initial excitement about these 75 days and the reasons you signed up…isn’t the desired outcome worth the investment of time and effort?

Have a MAGNIFICENT day! I wish you breathtakingly beautiful moments of love and peace and joy….

Love & Light,
Julette Millien

Right Action: Planning Right for Success

Hi there…I started to apologize for this very late message – but as I adjust to reality I realize that many of you are in such different time zones, this may be exactly on time.

Actually, regardless of the times zone I’ve found that with any given message, as long as it’s from the heart and principle based, SOMEBODY finds it to be ‘right on time’…..ALL OF THAT TO SAY, no need to apologize 🙂

This is just a quick check and reminder to you…planning is essential to a good and productive trip, as you know.

We’re about to start the second leg of our 75 day journey and we need to prepare for success.

Suggested Activities:

1)  Think of what you are hoping to accomplish – your vision of success for this 21-day period.

2)  Consider what RIGHT ACTION means to you…(will soon share exactly what I mean by this)

3)  Decide the action steps you will take daily…to satisfy RIGHT ACTION

4)  Decide on a project or undertaking that will take 21 days to accomplish or start, significantly

5)  If you don’t have one, seek and confirm an accountability partner from the group

6)  Commit to continuing your symbolic action step (and begin another if the first one is an ingrained habit)

7)  Sit quietly and connect to your source of power…let yourself listen.

The following is taken from our planning day message – last journey…(just as essential this time!)

*…schedule some time for planning and pampering. Do you know how you are before a great big event in your life? Thinking through all the details, getting your self prepared with rest, nutrition, information and right thinking…these seem obvious in preparation for a big day or event right? Well, treating this event with that same degree of respect will result in the best possible outcomes. Put in what you’d like to get out!*

Enjoy this journey – it truly is what YOU make it.

Have a magnificent evening, day or morning!

Love & Light
Julette Millien

Right Action: Planning 21 Days of Right Action


I hope you spent some time today and yesterday, internalizing what was learned, reflecting and marinating in your life lessons of the past 23 days.

This is just a quick note to get you geared up for the next 2 days of PLANNING our next series…21 Days of Right Action.

I’d like you to think of the most magnificent way to end 2009.

With your self-discipline re-energized, what will you take on?

How will you like, no LOVE to end the year?

Any goals for the year not yet achieved?

Any course of study or idea not yet implemented?

Any personal success habit not yet a habit, really?

Any major project – of service, organization, personal development, or life-enhancing idea not implemented?

Sit still and let the thing you must take on to really step out into the deep, to really live at your highest and best, let it come to you.

Then sleep on it…tomorrow we will plan.

Be well,
Julette Millien

Self-Discipline – reflecting and learning

The following message was sent to the participants of the  75 Days of Action Challenge on Facebook.

For all previous messages for this 21-day series on self-discipline,  see recent posts on this page.  It is important to honor this system and do your daily activities along with the suggested activities IF creating a powerful new success habit in 21 days is your goal.  Have fun!


Hi there!

I hope all is well and wonderful in your part of the world. And if it’s not, my wish is that you are able to bring something good to the situation.

These 2 days are reserved for reflecting, reviewing and processing the lessons learned over the past 23 days – 21 days of action plus the 2 we spent on planning.

I’d like you to:

1)  Review your answers to the questions asked on Day 1 – Nov. 10th – and see if you would answer them any differently today.

2)  Review what you have written in your journal and then just sit quietly to hear the guidance that comes from that deep inner voice.

3)  Reflect on how the days flowed when you were in action and how they flowed when you were not.

4)  Don’t move ahead just yet, planning the next phase – that time will come. For now, get the insights and learn the lessons you will be applying moving forward.

5)  Write as much as you’d like about these insights, lessons and accomplishments.

6)  Share with us all at the event wall.  I’ve been told again and again by participants of these programs that so much is learned from hearing about other people’s experiences, suggestions and challenges.

7)  Have fun…continue the celebration. You deserve it!

Have a magnificent day…with as much joy, wisdom, love and kindness as you can muster!! 🙂

Self-Discipline – Day 21!! Awesome.

The following message was sent to the participants of the  75 Days of Action Challenge on Facebook.

For all previous messages for this 21-day series on self-discipline,  see recent posts on this page.  It is important to honor this system and do your daily activities along with the suggested activities IF creating a powerful new success habit in 21 days is your goal.  Have fun!


Hello there you wonderful, self-disciplined people!

We made it – if you are reading this and you have been following the activities for the past 21 days…

C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S !!! – I sure wish I could BOLD and use HUGE font and the whole works!

[as it turns out, here on my blog I CAN!!] 🙂

Congratulations on completing this series, for starting and finishing something and for having sufficient commitment to your best life to actually DO something about creating it. That’s rare you know. You have something to celebrate today!!

Before the actual celebration [:-)] I’d like you to consider and do  a few things:

1)  Touch base with accountability partners and say thank-you…

2)  Oh! #1 should be: DO YOUR DAILY ACTIVITIES, as usual. Today is NOT the last day of doing these things…remember you were doing them to create a habit.

By now the habit is probably formed [depending on your output] so it’s vital to keep the behaviors going [in the frequency you desire] in order to maintain the new or improved success habit.

3)  Visit the event wall and share your insights, challenges and suggestions…we will all benefit so very much from this group sharing.

Yesterday I asked you to consider your patterns and triggers…

Today, consider this approach….You are the writer and star of your life story – which means YOU get to decide which actions, which emotions, which thoughts to have. People get confused about this…many of us when pressed would suggest that our feelings and thoughts are in charge, even more, that they ARE WHO we are.

*as my head shakes* Not at all…that is not the case. My essence, my identity, my presence in this world amounts to so much more than my transient feelings and my fleeting thoughts. Granted they do represent much of who I think I am, but they’re not the whole or the real sum of me.

And you know what? THANK GOD I’m not just my thoughts and emotions – because some of those have been so very limiting and even negative over the years.

I’m so grateful that we are all made of something more – an essence, a life force, a consciousness, an energy that transcends memory-based, pain-driven thoughts and feelings.

So as the writer and featured ‘star’ of your life, be sure to write your own script and not adopt another person’s view of your best life.

Be sure to edit appropriately and cut those sections that no longer serve your highest and best vision of you. Memories are based in the past and when they no longer serve a positive purpose should be used for their lessons, adjusted and re-framed. Same with negative feelings.

Be sure to highlight and feature those strengths and behaviors and relationships that actually bring value to the world.

Be sure to leave room in your life script for people, events, relationships and happenings you have no control over…write them in, leave space for them – this is where life gets lived. And sometimes it can get very sticky as you loose control of the script. People will say and do whatever they choose BUT YOUR reactions are completely UP TO YOU. That’s the only part you get to write, your thoughts, your emotions, your behaviors, your choices.

Your self-discipline is completely within your control.

Looking forward:

Tomorrow and Friday are dedicated the LEARNING…We started this series with 2 days of Planning, then spent 21 days taking ACTION, and now we will spend 2 days reviewing and learning. [that’s the PAL approach in action]

So I’ll be in touch with some suggested activities.

Have a truly magnificent day you wonderful and courageous people – takes a lot of courage to honestly look at ourselves and then take action to create our vision.

Take good care,
Julette Millien
