Self-Discipline, Day 18 – Connect to Your Source!

Hello!

Today is day 18 of our 21-day self discipline program, the first part of our 75-day journey together! Can you believe how fast the days are flying by? Seems like we were just on day 1!

So…here’s what I suggest you do today:

1) Be clear on what the source of your life, your power, your joy, your peace is…

2) Do whatever you do to connect. How do you plug into the source of your power? What are your activities for connection?

3) Write in your journal“What are trying to accomplish with your increased self-discipline that will benefit others?

4) Do your daily activities as usual.

5) Say hello to your accountability partner…just because.

Wishing you an abundance of love, peace, joy and love,

Day 13 – Organize the WORK Venue!

Hello there!

I hope you had a really productive AND relaxing weekend. 🙂

Friday’s message suggested using the weekend to ‘catch up’ with your organizing…we’ve covered organization as it relates to the SELF, HOME and Relationship venue – correspondence, papers, books, etc…

Today we begin 4 days of organizing in the WORK venue. (job, business, school – for students)

Today’s action suggestions:

1) Spend an hour – or as much as you can – doing some (or delegate if possible) filing and discarding (unnecessary papers, mail, etc)

2) Write about your ideal work space in great detail – what does it look like, smell like, feel like, sound like. If you have pictures that resemble your ideal look, clip them and include them in your writing.

3) In addition to # 1 above, take at least ONE first step towards creating your ideal (as close as you can come to it, with present resources.)

Maybe placing your desk in the position you’d like it in or sketching out the plan, or purchasing a framed picture to remind you of why you’re working so hard…ANY first step in the direction of your ideal work space will be fantastic!

4) Check in with accountability partner

5) CELEBRATE!!!!

Wishing you an abundance of peace, joy and productivity,
Julette

21 Days of ACTION with Forgiveness – Day 1

Hello there!

CONGRATULATIONS
for signing up for 21 Days of Action with Forgiveness!

Really, the battle is half won.   That’s because your intention is clear; you wish to forgive ALL, release ALL and become lighter, more open and more free.

That is a very good thing.

I am SO so so so EXCITED for you – and for me too because the more I do this (guide others through the forgiveness process) the easier it becomes to release ANYTHING negative that pops into my life.

OK.  Here is how I suggest you to start off; PREPARED!

As you know before starting any trip or taking on any important project, you MUST be prepared to excel. You won’t do or be at your highest and best by accident. It has to be intentional.

So please prepare yourself for this forgiveness journey in the following way: DAY 1 activities

1. Dedicate a journal or notebook to this forgiveness event- write as often as possible about the experience

2. Write the following in it: your forgiveness intention –what are you hoping to accomplish? Also, make a list of everything you feel guilty about – this is what you will be releasing over the next 3 days

3. Write the benefits: What will you gain from releasing all this guilt?

4. Read (if you haven’t) the articles sited at the Event Page – provided below

A blog entry here on Forgiving Yourself will get you started in this vital venue:
►►► Forgive Yourself  FIRST

Also, this one  ►►► on Consistency – How We Practice We Play

5. Spend some time in silence or prayer or meditation in a quiet spot or nature walk, letting love guide your state.

Again, congratulations on taking this life-changing, mindset shifting step into complete forgiveness.

As I mentioned on the event wall, having an accountability partner will dramatically increase your benefits from this experience. I URGE you to share your goals with a trusted friend and permit them to hold you to your daily intentions.

Accountability is a basic requirement of any undertaking IF excellence is your goal!

It was decided to conceal the guest list for this event to protect the privacy of each participant. But if you’d like to have an accountability partner from within the group please leave a message on the discussion wall and others will respond if available.

I’ll be in touch regularly throughout the 21 days and will be available for any questions you might have. Share your questions and your insights, we will all be blessed by whatever you have to add to this experience.

I hope you are as excited as I am :-). This is exciting though I certainly understand if you’re a bit anxious…that’s perfectly normal. Just allow me to guide you, take it one step at a time and remember your benefits. The ‘why’ behind your actions will keep you motivated when/if it gets a bit uncomfortable.

Change is never comfortable but it is so necessary!

Keep the end in mind – lightness and peace and joy, etc…. 🙂

In light and with Love,
Julette

21 Days of Accountability to Create a Habit of Success

If you have a goal in mind and it requires daily action,  accountability is your best and most powerful guide.

For any society to function and for any person to perform at their highest and best accountability is key.

Think of all the ways you are accountable each day – you speed or break a law, you will have a consequence if caught, and even if not caught, there is the consequence of  possible guilt; you leave late for an appointment, you will be late; you behave a certain way, you get a particular response – most of the time!  We couldn’t exist without accountability.

Also, in creating new habits, we’re going ‘against the grain.’  As humans we don’t gravitate easily towards change.

Accountability – basically being responsible for your actions (or no actions) – makes daily commitments more likely to be acted upon.  Support groups are effective to the extent that accountability is part of the expectations.

I know from personal experience of having  a coach/accountability partner, I get more done, more consistently when I have to report in to someone at a specific time, on a regular basis!   From professional experience as an executive coach, without a doubt accountability works every time.

In this 21 Days of Accountability ‘event’  we will make use of two accountability methods: partnering (being accountable to someone else) and journaling (being accountable to yourself.)

To be an effective source of motivation, an accountability partner must adhere to certain  guidelines.

Basic Guidelines of Accountability:

  • An attitude of Service:  to be a great accountability partner, you have to want to do it;  a desire to be of service is a key ingredient.   Wanting the very best for your partner is essential.  Wanting to do everything you can to help them stay on task is equally important.  Your partner will respond at a higher level if they’re motivated by your genuine interest and desire to see them succeed.
  • NON-JUDGMENT: No matter what goes on with daily action items, it is not our role as an accountability partner to make any judgments about why something wasn’t done, or about our partner.  Think of being judged – TOTALLY demotivating!
  • Consistency: Stick to the agreements of the partnership.  If you agree that you will be in touch with your accountability partner to give an update – do so.  And if you don’t  hear from your partner, reach out to them.  Create an agreement about what the ‘consequence’ will be if action is not taken as committed.  And what ever is agreed to should be invoked.  Hold your partner accountable!  This is the whole point.

Some additional and necessary characteristics of an excellent accountability partner for this program:

  • Integrity (confidentiality is crucial)
  • Curiosity and interest in meeting new people
  • Commitment to self-improvement (your own and others’ too)
  • Excellent ‘listening’ skills

I strongly recommend that you adhere to these guidelines and come to an agreement with your accountability partner about:

  • Frequency of contact – each person is responsible for checking in with their partner
  • Clarity on daily actions committed to
  • Consequences for IF action is not taken
  • Reward for when you’ve successfully created your new powerful success habit! (and for along the way as well)

About Accountability to YOURSELF:

On a daily basis – for 21 days straight, I highly recommend that you write in an accountability journal about your day.  Write what was accomplished, what wasn’t and why.

This can be very brief – the point is to MAKE yourself write it out so you can hold yourself accountable.  You will become less guilty as well.

You’ll also have an opportunity to give positive self-feedback on a regular basis; this helps with maintaining the high level of motivation needed to be successful.

As you  build the powerful habit of accountability, you have to have a laser like focus on taking deliberate daily action towards this end.  Being single minded about writing, checking in and taking action on your goal is imperative.

If you are NOT coachable in this regard, you will not have much success with creating this new habit.

Have fun with this process, if you slip up, dust off and jump back in.  It’s the only way! 🙂

Wishing you abundant success,

Julette
