I’ve been kind of slacking it the last few days – just been feeling a lot of pain from injuries suffered in a recent car accident. Maybe this following exercise will be very tough for me – or maybe it will be exactly what I need. I do know how important that ‘state’ is – one of my mentors, a guy named Tony Robbins, first taught me about state.
Get Into STATE!
Let’s get real baby. If you don’t FEEL the way you need to feel, daily, it’s going to be pretty hard to get the results you want in business OR life.
If you’re honest with yourself it will be one of the key reasons you don’t take the actions you know you should or COULD be taking in your business. It is also the reason a lot of the time you simply DON’T feel like it!
Resistance got you bound …
You’re tired …
You’re overwhelmed …!
You just don’t WANNA …!
HOW YOU FEEL AND HOW YOU SHOW UP IS A FUCKING CHOICE.
The thing is … you SHOULD get to feel good, every day, but also? It’s irresponsible not to and you simply won’t be ABLE to live your purpose and achieve your goals if you don’t!
Rather than simply tell you how to use journaling to change your state, today I want to show you by sharing straight from my journal an example.
I journal like this every single day, even if I ALREADY feel motivated and switched on, filled with self-belief! It works even on the days when you feel completely blah, so imagine how powerful it is when you already have your head in the game!
Powerful “I am” and state changing statements such as these ones are amongst my favorite journaling tools, and I use them daily.
Here is my example:
“I am rich
I am a seriously wealthy woman
I am in fantastic fucking shape
I create my reality now
I am doing the work I was called to do
I am in my genius zone
I love my clients and my community
My community is my why, in a BIG way
I just want to inspire you to press play!
I have brilliant downloads and ideas daily
I make money from flow, with ease!
I am in fantastic shape
I love my life
I make an extra 100k this weekend cash received
My next big idea just flows and it is of MASSIVE value and service
I am in flow
Action: now it’s your turn. Write a full page of state changing exercises out, focusing on whatever comes to mind for you or feels important!

I am an excellent writer. Writing comes easy to me. When I sit down to write, the words and ideas just flow in a completely easy to understand way.
My readers love to read what I write. They don’t necessarily agree with what I write, but they do love reading it and always ask for more.
I am a technology expert and like to share my knowledge and help others with technology issues whenever appropriate.
I love promoting other businesses and helping them get more customers and a lot more sales.

Life is good and getting better every day.
So many good things are happening and I’m excited about the future.

Money just keeps on rolling in from unexpected sources all the time.
We have plenty of money to do anything we want to do. Money is never an issue in our priorities.
The more that I wrote in this exercise, the more that I really like my idea about recording customized affirmations for people. Need to think more about this very soon … Could very well go along with the jumping for health tour.
A couple of years ago I had a serious issue with my websites being hacked. I was traveling A LOT for work and just did not have the bandwidth to take the proper actions. I got frustrated, moved all of my sites to Google’s Blogger and quit my hosting package at Host Gator.
The title says it all. A writer writes. A producer produces. Creatives are creative. In a sense, doers do.
Personally I’ve had ‘creative block’ which in my case was basically not attempting to create anything – something super stupid for anyone, especially someone who wants to make a difference. One of my challenges is that I am interested in a wide variety of subjects – even get passionate about a few. I need to clear out the clutter and decide on the few subjects that will get my attention.
One thing that I have been recently inspired to do is to create a pilot and a web video series based on a screenplay that I am writing with the working title of “The Health Club” (could easily be title sponsored by a national or even regional health club chain, think LA Fitness, 24 Hour Fitness, Crunch Fitness, etc. I will be writing about The Health Club at least initially at Agent Hollywood Entertainment. If you have any feedback with the concept, have a sponsorship inquiry, would like to be involved with the project please contact me.
