Changing Your View Can Change Your Outcome

By  |  4 Comments

i am not sure what you were doing last night but after my 2 hours of cleaning (i have no idea how people with children ever have a clean, organized home because i destroyed ours over 6 measly days), i decided that instead of watching 4 hours worth of trashy TV, i’d be BOLD and spend my time more wisely. i should admit to you that i then proceeded to watch 2 episodes of ‘revenge’ but that is half of what i was planning on.

i popped in the first DVD of my husband and his mentor (Dr. Randy Havery’s) home study course and it blew my mind. a lot of that was because i’m ready to have my mind blown and engage in different things to achieve new outcomes.

this first DVD is all about understanding and finding your why. why you do what you do, why you are on this earth, why the world needs you to take big actions and why if you speak from the heart, the world will listen.

now, i’ve seen a lot of this before (heck i was even there for the filming of it), and i hear it during Ryan’s workshops but it wasn’t until last night that i was ready to truly hear what was being taught in helping me develop my why. this is important because i am ready and practicing being bold and doing bigger things.

i am sharing this with you because i am currently sitting in the Dallas airport waiting for my flight to Lubbock and during that 4 hour flight from Portland, i decided to change my behavior. when i’m on planes i usually do whatever i can do to distract myself from reality. this consists of reading intense stories that engulf my whole brain, watching Harry Potter on my tiny little iPod (not a fancy iPad, like the original 2 inch screen), sometimes enjoying some wine or when my husband is with me, making him play cribbage with me.

about 3 minutes after as we ascended  above the dense fog that covered the Portland ground during take off, this was the view:

A PURPLE LAKE! talk about being bold….way to go lake!

even more exciting news: I GET TO SEE MY HUSBAND IN T-MINUS 3 HOURS! woohoo! i am getting so excited and have little butterflies in my stomach when i think about seeing this familiar, 6’4 man smiling and waiting to pull me into his arms. yay love!

the new wifestyle: sometimes small changes can create big differences in your life.

1) have you ever thought about what your ‘why’ is? if so, what was your process like? have you found it?
2) what do you usually do to pass the time on airplanes?
3) what actions have you changed for the better recently?

    Me too! Can’t wait for my autographed copy.
    On planes, I love to listen to music and read. What a joyous escape…. I often travel with Louise Hay’s Power Thought Cards and love to commit more of her great sayings to memory. And the window seat reigns supreme. To see the geography of the land below is the BEST.
