"Finally! Discover How To Overcome Your Limitations And Doubts So You Can Achieve Your Greatest Potential!"
Discover This Simple, Step-By-Step Blueprint To Unlocking Your Greatest Potential!
Many of us struggle with not reaching our fullest potential, feeling something is missing from our lives.
Whether we are afraid to act, don’t feel we’re good enough or worthy enough to have success, or just think it’s too hard to accomplish our greatest goals, many of us aren’t living the lives we are capable of living.
We fall back on excuses of why we aren’t living the lives we wanted and not achieving as much as we feel we should be.
Do These Excuses Sound Familiar?
“It will take too much work to achieve my goals.”
“It will take too long to achieve my goals.”
“I should just be happy with where I’m at in life.”
“Only special people are able to have great success.”
“Only privileged people are able to have great success.”
“I can’t go for that goal because I’m afraid I’ll mess up and lose everything.”
“I can’t go for that goal because it’s too risky and I have too much to do now.”
Everyone has their own excuses of why they aren’t as successful as they feel they should be and why they have not strived for the goals and the lives they wanted to have.
When people don’t achieve the goals they wanted to achieve, they make up a reason for why they fell short.
In other words, they try to rationalize why they’re not living the lives they wanted to live and not achieving the success and gaining the recognition they thought they would get.
As a result, they start to feel as if they’re unworthy and unable to achieve the goals they originally had wanted, feeling the task is too difficult and/or too risky to go after.
They start to settle for what they have, telling themselves that they should be satisfied with what they have in life, that successful people have special advantages and abilities that enabled them to achieve the success they have, advantages and abilities that they don’t have.
According to TIME’s 2017 Harris Poll Survey of American Happiness, just 1 in 3 Americans said they were “happy.” That means that not even close to half of Americans are happy. In fact, the highest-ever percentage of Americans who were happy according to this poll was 35% in 2008 and 2009, barely over 1 in 3 Americans.

How Do You Develop the Perfect Morning Routine to Reduce Anxiety and Make Your Life Better? Can changing your morning REALLY change your life?
One of the best ways to learn how to become more accomplished is to look at the people in life who have accomplished the most and to try and emulate them. What are the secrets to their success?
Usually you’ll find that there are many answers to this question and many things you can learn. But one of the most consistent things you’ll find is that the successful individual has a morning routine.
This is what you will do first thing in the day when you wake up. It’s the perfect time to focus on yourself before life gets in the way and it’s the perfect way to ensure your day gets off to the right start. So, what does the ideal morning routine look like? Here are some ideas to start you off…
Working out first thing in the morning will help to get the blood circulating and will release hormones that wakes you up. If you train before breakfast, you’ll burn more calories by training in a ‘fasted state’.
Another thing you’ll find that many very successful people do is to start their day with meditation. Meditation is a fantastic tool for combating stress and helping yourself to cope better with the challenges that life faces you with. What’s more, is that meditation can help to boost your concentration and create more grey matter to improve your reasoning skills and working memory!
Gratitude exercises are very valuable for being happier and more effective. The problem is that many driven people forget to stop and take stock of what they’ve already accomplished or how good their lives are already. Instead, they only ever think about the things they have yet to accomplish and what they want next. Check out my Gratitude Journal - in PDF (so you can print at home) or workbook form.
Spend five minutes in the morning then and write down three things that you love about yourself and 10 things you're grateful for. These can be big things or small things. But simply by focussing on them, you will feel more content and happier and your work will be more fruitful.
Starting the day with a to-do list is an excellent way to enhance your productivity. It’s also a very good way to avoid feeling overwhelmed by the volume of things you need to do. Make a list of all the things that you absolutely must prioritize and then the things you’ll do if you can. Split your day into segments and then just work through each job one at a time! I put together this Productivity Planner and I absolutely LOVE the way it works - take a look!
Being in a relationship with a narcissist on any level can make you feel like you need tools - a strategy, at least - to help you get through it. You'll find yourself researching ways to deal with narcissists and their gaslighting attempts, and you might even manage to become a bit of an expert on the topic.
But what do you do when you are ready to take back your power from the narcissist? Well, you start with these seven steps. You use the law of attraction to your advantage. You combat trauma bonding and CPTSD with strength and focus. You push away manipulation and invalidation from someone who has NPD or another cluster b personality disorder.
Discover. Understand. Overcome. It's how smart people change their lives!
Do you always seem to fall short of success? You might be unconsciously keeping yourself from reaching your goals, even when you think you really want to achieve them!
Learning about self-sabotage - and your reasons for it - can help you to stop this unconscious cycle so you can go on to create a life you desire.
Reflect on these reasons to determine if they might be keeping you from success:
1. Fear of failure. One of the reasons you may not reach for success is because you're afraid to fail. Failure is hard to manage, ignore, or handle. It can eat away at your self-esteem and make you doubt your abilities, so it's not surprising you'll do anything to avoid it.
2. Low self-esteem. If you lack confidence and suffer from low self-esteem, self-sabotage may feel natural for you.You might think you don't deserve success, so you unconsciously destroy any chance you have of getting it.
3. Fear of change. Success is often tied to change, such as a new job, better home, or other things. You may be sabotaging your efforts because you don't want anything to change. You're used to your current lifestyle and don't want to modify it. For example, you may claim that you want a mansion or a private jet, but you don't actually want to pay for these things or be responsible for them. So, you ensure you never have them in the first place.
4. Control issues. You might self-sabotage in order to remain in control. Are you allowing your control issues to prevent you from reaching success, Control and perfectionism are often tied together. If you want everything to be perfect all the time, then you may be losing out on big and important opportunities.
5. Habits. Sometimes your habits can sabotage you without you even realizing it. For example, if you have a habit of always being late to meetings, then you may miss your chance to impress a client and get a raise. You self-sabotage your own success because of an old habit. Habits such as drinking and doing drugs are also extremely sabotaging.
6. Negativity and criticism. The criticism may come from your own internal negative voice, or it may be coming from outside sources such as your family members or friends. Negativity and criticism can be internalized and cause you to sabotage success. If you constantly hear that you're not good enough, smart enough, or talented enough, then you begin to believe this. You feel that you don't deserve to be successful. You may not want to try things that could help you because you don't think you're worthy of them. Family, friends, coworkers, bosses, and others may have you believing that you're useless, dumb, or worthless.
In addition, research shows that your parents can affect you as an adult. If your parents exhibited self-sabotaging behavior, then you may copy it throughout your life. You grew up seeing this pattern and have a hard time breaking out of it. Their insecurities can carry over to your life.
If you're sabotaging your own life and future, you can change. It will require effort and time, but it's possible to reshape your thoughts.
Whenever a thought appears that doesn't support your efforts to achieve your goals, immediately replace it with a positive thought, instead. You'll get better and better at both recognizing unsupportive thoughts and changing them the more you practice it.
Each day, we’re faced with the choice to create peace or create stress. This can be a challenging task on a good day. On a bad day, it feels impossible. The constant ups and downs in life are a given. They’re largely uncontrollable. But you can control your response to them. You can learn to feel peaceful in challenging times.
Find the peace you need to thrive after narcissistic abuse:
Give yourself the advice you would give a friend. It’s difficult to make decisions when you’re emotionally compromised. But the path forward is more obvious to you if someone else is struggling. Imagine that your friend has the same challenge you’re facing. What advice would you give them?
Ask yourself what you’re learning from this experience. Are you learning the importance of saving your money? Are you learning not to overextend yourself? Are you learning how to deal with the death of a loved one?
Every hardship provides a lesson. Determine what you can learn from the experience.
Write in a journal. Let your emotions flow out onto paper. There’s something cathartic about writing. It feels like the emotion is leaving your body and taking residence in a new location.
After unloading your negative emotions, use your journal to make a list of possible solutions to your dilemma. What resources do you have available? Whom can you contact for help or support?
What are you afraid of? If you’re feeling out of sorts, you’re afraid of something. What is it? Defining your fear will make it a little less scary. Ask yourself what is the worst thing likely to happen.
Practice mindfulness. We make our challenges more challenging by continuously churning through them. You think about your issue while you’re in the shower, driving to work, eating lunch, talking with friends, or watching TV. You never get a break.
Mindfulness is simply paying attention to your environment and the task at hand. If you’re eating dinner, your mind should be on eating, not thinking about your difficulties. It’s challenging to control your thoughts, but the peace you experience can’t be beat.
Tame your mind first. It’s a common mistake. You focus on solving your challenge first. Then you believe you’ll feel better. This is logical, but slow and challenging. Get your mind under control, and then your problem is easier to solve. You’ll also feel better more quickly. Quiet your mental noise first and then search for solutions.
Remember all of your previous issues that turned out okay. Think about the challenges you’ve faced in the past. You survived and moved on. You’ll get over this, too. Believe that everything will work out for the best.
What was the worst thing that happened to you during your elementary school years?
Look for the helpers. Whether there’s a fire, an earthquake, or a homeless family, there’s always someone helping. There are people available to help you, too. Look for the helpers and you’ll find them.
Feeling stressed is a typical response when life takes an unexpected turn. Our responses to hardship are habitual. Habits can be altered or broken. New habits can be created. Avoid the belief that your negative feelings are happening to you like bad weather. You can choose your focus and manage your thoughts. Find peace first and then solve your challenge.
With the right treatment, you can find healing. One of the emerging popular forms of treatment that can help with healing is EMDR. This practice was once used primarily for people who struggled with problems related to post-traumatic stress disorder.
But EMDR is now successfully used for anyone who suffers from the effects of any type of traumatic event – from an abusive marriage to an assault or accident. There are many uses.
What Is EMDR?
The initials for EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It’s a type of psychotherapy treatment. Its purpose is one that’s intended to relieve stress and other negative feelings that can be caused by traumatic memories.
This can be living through a traumatic event yourself or witnessing it happen to someone else. There are three different parts to the EMDR therapy that can be a help to people.
The first part is dealing with the events and memories that are responsible for the emotional problems you’ve been experiencing. In this first part of dealing with the events, you’ll learn how to create new links that you can associate with the events and memories.
EMDR therapy works in that it can have you feeling safe and in control in your environment rather than afraid and feeling like the world is not a safe place for you to be in.
The second part that can help people who use EMDR techniques is targeting the present situations that might provoke your distress. During the sessions, while you’re going through the phases, you’ll be doing work designed to desensitize any external and internal triggers you may have.
Many people have certain triggers that will cause them to feel as powerless and scared as they were at the time the actual event took place. The person can feel like he or she is actual back in the event or seeing it again.
EMDR can help you overcome the emotions and issues that are connected with that. The third part involves using imagery. This imagery consists of picturing possible future events that can help you to obtain the skills necessary for reconstructing how you want to react to situations.
EMDR therapy helps you learn how to cope with a trigger that brings up old emotions. For example, if you were the victim of a fire, and the feel of heat from any kind of flame on your skin scares you because of that past experience, EMDR therapy can teach you how to cope with the feeling of terror that you may have when you feel heat in the present.
Working through triggers is a big part of healing with the use of EMDR therapy. It involves dealing with the past, with the present, and also with the future. This part of EMDR can help you so that the problems that you’re experiencing currently won’t always be with you.
If you have several triggers, make sure to mention them all to your therapist. It’s important that you learn to work through each one so they don’t bring on the painful or terrorizing emotions any longer.
When you’re in an EMDR session, the therapist will lead you in various sets of eye movements. During this session of eye movements, what you’ll be doing is focusing on the traumatic event.
At the same time, you’ll also be focusing on any emotional problems or thoughts that are associated with the event. This back and forth eye movement will help you learn to alter your responses to memories or triggers associated with whatever it was that you went through.
While the same techniques are used, there can be slight variations. Some therapists will use music during EMDR sessions while some choose not to. The reason that music is used is because music is another way to stimulate your senses and help guide you to being able to alter your responses.
Other therapists will also teach certain body movements, like having you drum your fingers or tap your toes because these movements work to stimulate your senses. If you’ve lived through several traumatic events, the therapist will target each one of these separately to work through them.
By focusing on helping you with one at a time, you won’t feel overwhelmed with emotion or receive a trigger overload. The therapist will then help you work through the remaining traumas.
When anyone experiences a trauma, it can cause several different emotional responses. What EMDR can help you do is process these events. By processing them, you gain a better way to deal with these different emotions.
EMDR therapy doesn’t use the homework and other techniques used by other therapies. The purpose behind EMDR techniques is to help you leave the sessions feeling empowered by the traumatic events rather than terrified or afraid to face them.
The length of the sessions and treatment plan will differ by clients because of the wide range of emotional responses to different events.
What Problems Can Be Helped by EMDR?
There are several problems and symptoms that can be handled by using the teachings of EMDR. Extremely traumatic events such as sexual and physical abuse can be successfully treated.
There are other traumatic events that can require the need for a treatment like EMDR. If you witness a terrible trauma or the abuse of someone else, it can affect you emotionally.
So can going through a natural disaster or even watching it unfold on television. Going through a short term event can have long term emotional consequences. An example of this would be having a house fire or being in a car accident.
When you go through something like that, these events can bring on feelings of loss of control and fear. In some cases, if you experience a trauma that leads to the death of someone else, you can develop survivor’s guilt.
These feelings can be worked through during EMDR. Emotional issues - such as depression, anxiety, overwhelming fears, phobias, and low self-esteem can also be treated with EMDR.
The problems you have don’t have to be extreme to use EMDR for treatment. You can seek out EMDR if you’re dealing with problems like a bad temper or excessive worrying. You can find help for working through relationship problems.
You can also learn how to overcome things like test anxiety or panic attacks. If you feel that you have something that’s holding you back in your personal or professional life, you can contact an EMDR therapist about it.
With these, you might feel a lack of motivation or have a fear of being alone. EMDR can help you deal with these issues. Many people find that EMDR is successful in helping deal with the underlying issues that can lead to eating disorders.
Part of what makes EMDR so effective for those suffering from difficult events is the way that it explores positivity versus negativity. During EMDR treatment, you’ll learn how to look at yourself through a different light.
What Are the Phases of EMDR Therapy?
EMDR focuses on treatment through the use of phases. These phases that EMDR focuses on are the past, the present and the future. The overall treatment plan has a total of eight phases.
Each one of these phases is uniquely designed to help you work through the problems and symptoms you’re dealing with. The first phase that you’ll learn how to deal with involves your past.
You’ll meet with your therapist and have an in-depth discussion about your problem and what caused the problem to occur. The therapist will also determine if you’re ready for EMDR and what the best possible plan is to work with you.
A lot of the focus during the first phase is on any troubling and frightening memories you have and on any present situations that are triggering these memories. The age that you were when the trauma took place will be taken into account.
If you’re a victim of an adult trauma rather than a childhood trauma, your treatment plan may be slightly different. If you’re a victim of multiple traumas instead of just one, your treatment plan may be longer.
For the second phase of EMDR treatment, the therapist will teach you different techniques to help you deal with stress and external and internal triggers. These techniques will then be used in further sessions and you can use them in between sessions whenever you need them.
The third phase deals with assessing and reprocessing. Part of the assessing involves the therapist asking you to verbalize how you feel about the traumatic events. You may also be asked about how your body reacts to external and internal triggers.
The fourth phase that you’ll go through is desensitization. During this phase, the therapist will focus on disturbing sensations or emotions you have related to the traumatic events or your sensations and emotions with internal and external triggers.
You’ll be asked to rate how you feel about current situations and past traumatic events on a scale of one to ten, also called the Subjective Unit of Distress Scales (SUDS). During this phase, the therapist will teach you to use eye movements that have changes in focus or shifts until you can positively lower your rating from a ten to a one or zero.
The fifth phase works to help you replace negative beliefs you have about yourself with positive ones. Because of the desensitization in the previous phase, you will be able to look at the traumatic event from a different point of view.
For example, if the traumatic event happened to you when you were a child, you’ll be able to look at it from the perspective of a strong adult instead of the helpless child you once were.
After the positive beliefs have been instilled, the sixth phase will have you revisiting the traumatic event again. You’ll be asked to determine if your body has any tension or residual negative feelings associated with the event.
If you do, you’ll go through more EMDR therapy. If you don’t, you’ll move on to the next phase. The seventh phase is closure. This takes place over a few or several therapy sessions.
Your therapist may teach you more techniques, especially ones dealing with ways that you can practice self-calming. During this phase, your therapist will help you remember that you’re in control - both in and out of the sessions.
You may be asked to keep a journal during this time, depending on the treatment plan that you and your therapist have worked out. The eighth and final phase is reevaluation. Your therapist will ask you at the beginning of each session about residual feelings you have about the traumatic event and will ask you to rate your feelings about the event.
It’s important that you’re honest about your ratings. If they start climbing up again, you’ll need more therapy. You should leave the sessions feeling better than you felt when you walked into them.
How Does EMDR Work?
EMDR helps you work through traumatic events and process them in a new way. For many people who experience a trauma, they don’t actually deal with it. Instead, what they do is to compartmentalize the traumatic event or events.
This is a method of survival and people do this in order to be able to cope at that moment. Often, during a traumatic event, shock will set in that will prevent the person from being able to process the event.
It isn’t until after the event is over that the person has the time to realize what happened and how traumatic the even or events actually were. Those who are victims of childhood abuse will sometimes repress those emotions and feelings of worthlessness and powerlessness.
It isn’t until they’re adults and have the freedom to explore these feelings that they’re suddenly faced with having to learn how to cope with them. EMDR works by going back into the past and learning how to deal with those emotions and feelings on a better level.
You’re able to access your traumatic memories in a safe environment and the treatment allows you to forge new links between the memories and your present environment. The ultimate goal of EMDR is to help those who have been through traumatic events to lead healthier and more positive lives.
It works to help eliminate stress associated with the traumatic event and teaches you how to overcome triggers and negative thoughts and feelings you have about yourself. You can use EMDR in conjunction with traditional talk therapy to help you live a better, more fulfilled life without anxiety.
