3 Key Secrets to Living the Life You Want!

livethelifeDo you know the 3 Key Secrets to living the life you want? Take a minute, challenge yourself, and see what you come up with!  I would love to hear your comments!

Recently I was asked to speak to an awesome group of high school sophomores and juniors who were graduating from a 2 year program of service sponsored by their local Chamber of Commerce! They had learned and demonstrated great skills and abilities, and had served their community well! My outcome was to motivate them into their successful futures and help them continue this experience of service into their daily lives, in 30 minutes or less!

Normally I am booking other speakers instead of myself;  but this was an honor and a joy to do! I had met a lot of these students, and it would help keep me connected to what I promote; and be a great experience of seeing how the 6 Generations in the Workplace communicate with each other!

I knew I had just seconds to get them involved. My first words were to give them permission to Tweet, Instagram, Facebook, Vine, Snapchat, and take notes on any device they chose!  They agreed to keep their ring tones down, so I wouldn’t want to stop and listen to their music!

I gave them the challenge as I did to you, to share what they thought the 3 key secrets are!  They had great points and ended up complimenting what I had in mind all along!

Here are the what we found are the 3 Key Secrets to living the life you want, and how to live them out loud every day!

  1. Know Who You Are- I’m talking about the “real” you when no one is looking! This is key because it will help you avoid comparing yourself to others, and help you develop your strengths rather than wasting time working to improve your weaknesses! How do you know the “real” you? By accepting, loving, and believing in yourself without wishing to be someone else. Learn to not let your “imperfections” (and we all have them) become your identity! Learn to be comfortable in your own skin and in turn it will help others be comfortable with you and overlook everything else!
  2. Have a Positive Attitude- Your mind is a funny thing, isn’t it? What you put in it is what you become. Having a positive attitude is a choice, and begins the moment you wake up each day! How is it possible to keep a positive attitude in this negative world? It’s important to choose the right things to read, what you view on TV and YouTube, and how you see yourself as a valuable person. Fear, doubt, worry, and discouragement are all around, but positive information and faith will guide you in overcoming the negative and face life with a smile and seek solutions and not excuses!
  3. Choose Carefully Who You Surround Yourself With- Jim Rohn says: “You’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.”  If this is true, isn’t it worth making sure you make the right choices of whom you spend your time with? Right now as you read this think of the 5 people you spend the most time with! Are they positive and uplifting? Do they know who “they” are? Do they build you and others up, not down? Is it possible you might need to make some changes?

See how these fit together in the daily adventure of life? To have a life you want means to share, care, volunteer, and serve. It’s not about you at all! You are already unique and special, you need to keep focused on knowing and living who you really are, keeping a positive attitude, and surrounding yourself with the right people!

Amazingly I saw these students and others writing down what I was sharing, and afterwards they were still talking more about their how’s and what they planned to do in their lives! I saw the future of our nation, future leaders, and future families represented there, and I am so thankful their parents, friends, and community leaders got to see it too!

I left there with a renewed heart, mind, body, and soul, ready to face my world of choices!  Are you ready to begin a new day of living your life out loud knowing the 3 Key Secrets that will make it happen?

What is Your Mindset?

mindsetWhat is your mind focused on most of the time? That becomes your way of life, doesn’t it? Remember this saying when we first started going forward into the computer age “Garbage in- garbage out!” That’s how our minds work! What goes in is what we become and it shows itself everywhere we go!

That is why it is so important to make sure as individuals, business owners, and entrepreneurs we are putting the right things into our minds so that we can have successful and productive lives!

Once we begin on this journey it is a never ending process of learning and living. We have to recharge and refresh to keep our minds focused on what is best for us!

Whether it is improving our skill sets, maintaining great health, or having wonderful relationships and communications with others, it takes a daily decision and choice to keep our mindsets focused on doing what is best for us.

Carol Andrews, a speaker represented here at “Simply” Sue Speaks! Global Booking Agency, is an expert in this field of making sure we create the right mindset for what we have been called and gifted to become.

As a sought after keynote speaker and break-out session presenter, Carols helps you know who you are so you can keep focused on what it will take to have confidence, overcome the fear, and succeed at what you do.

Having had a long career of being in front of the cameras as a TV Media Personality, Carol helps others to step out of their comfort zones and have a plan in place to succeed. Carol challenges everyone, including herself, to keep a positive attitude, be kind, and focus on the business you are in and do it well, using traditional and social media as your platform.

As a prolific author and blogger, Carol has found a special niche working with other writers to tell their story and get it published. Just another interesting part of what Carol has to offer her audiences all over the world!

What is your mindset, as we prepare to begin a New Year?  Do you know the strengths of your mind, and that the “best is yet to come?”

When I arrived that day I found not only the students, but their parents, friends, town officials, and Chamber members. I love crowds and  I was “in my zone” and ready for a great time!

I knew I had just seconds to get them involved. My first message was to give them permission to Tweet, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, and take notes on any device they chose!  They agreed to keep their ring tones down, so I wouldn’t want to stop and listen to their music!

How is it possible to keep a positive attitude in this negative world? It’s important to choose the right things to read, such as this #1 Best-seller: “Work Positive in a Negative World” by Dr. Joey Faucette.  Other choices are watching what you view on TV and YouTube, and how you see yourself as a valuable person. Fear, doubt, worry, and discouragement are all around, but positive information and faith will guide you in overcoming the negative and face life with a smile and seek solutions and not excuses!
