Permission to Try Have you ever waited for someone to give you permission to try something?  I know I did.  What I have discovered is the only person I  need to get permission from to try anything is myself.  When I wait for others to tell me what I can or can’t do..I stop living the life I was sent here to live.  I stop aligning my will to God’s will for me because I am trying to do what “you think I should do.” I have been discovering the power found in words and the words you decide to put on everyday.  As Kody Bateman, from the book Promptings said, “The stories in your mind do become the stories of your life, and it’s a whole lot of fun when you create the stories you desire.” You and I have the ability to not only change our story but step forward to create the story you have secretly desired.  What is that thing you think about changing or improving--and why are not doing it today?  Take a minute and ask yourself this question. One way that has changed my life is by taking a few minutes each day to look for the good in that day---and focus my thoughts there. Go to @becomingwithbecky on IG or FB and let's connect!  This month--each day I am offering a gratitude prompt and some power words to put on that will help us look to the good in our lives.  We each have so much to be grateful for and the simple redirect of our minds will make all the difference.

Are you fresh out of willpower?  I was too until I discovered the simple power found in words.  Today, I intentionally choose what words I put on each day and you can too!  I choose the words that matter to me that allow me to feel the way I desire and it has made all the difference. How do you feel today?  Ask yourself this question and become aware of how you feel each day.  I want to give you permission to change your words.  I invite you to practice putting on wonder instead of worry.  As Dieter F. Uchtdorf said, "we need an ongoing infusion of heavenly light.  We need "times of refreshing" and times of personal restoration."  The power of words can be that very thing.  As we put on words that matter, we can become refreshed and restored, day by day. Life doesn't go as planned, this is part of the plan yet we get to choose how we feel each day.  We will feel sadness and disappointment at times yet we want to make sure that we feel joy and love too.   It starts by becoming aware to your feelings...and to begin to feel them.  This episode will take a deeper look on this simple approach to moving forward.

What do the words, Easy Does It mean to you?  How often do you practice putting them on?  Let us always remember to listen to our body instead of our mind.  Our mind will keep us frazzled and in the hustle of life where our body will actually tell you what it desires---if you just learn to listen.  Let us discover how to be human beings instead of human doers!

It is time to discover the power of our thoughts!  Once I became aware to the thoughts I was putting one, I discovered I could put on different thoughts to create different results.  You can too!!!  As Stephen Covey said, "words have been and always will be the creative force of the universe."   What life are you creating?  Have you a desire on your heart that you continue to be stuck in.  Time is going by day after day, week after week, month after month and year after year---but you stay stuck, wishing.   If you are waiting and not taking the steps necessary to create the life you desire, I want to simply remind you that you have the power within to change this. We have a choice, the catalyst for change is within each of us.  It starts with remembering the power of our thoughts.  I am excited to share The One Word Way.  A FREE Ebook that will begin to show you how to create the life you desire by ditching willpower and starting to put on one word at a time--that matters. d  To download go to www.becomingwithbecky.com/join It is time to discover how to redirect your mind and focus on the good.  As Gandhi once said, "a man is but the product of his thoughts, what he thinks--he becomes."  Join me as we become the person we have always desired and it starts with remembering the power found in our thoughts.  Let's do it one word at a time.

Share Goodness!  I love these two simple words.   These words are ones I invite you to put on every single day.    How do you share goodness?  Have you ever thought about it?  On this episode, we discuss the simple question you can ask yourself--How do I share goodness?  I love the idea "never suppress a generous thought."  What generous thoughts are you having?  Are you acting on them?   Often it is the to dos of life that hold me back from sharing goodness.  I think, I will get to it when this or that is done.   It is time to become aware to how we individually decide to share goodness.  Your influence, example  and words always matters to someone else. "Do your little bit of good where you are; it's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world."  Desmond Tutu We can each do a little bit and together make the world better.  As we put on goodness in our own lives, be sure to be generous and share it with someone else.

How do you choose to look at the world?  Are you a person that looks at a glass half full or half empty?  Why is that?  It is good to remember that we have the power to change our perspective--because we have the power to change our thoughts regarding the circumstances of our life.   In this episode we will talk more about the importance of focusing on the good! As Wayne Dyer says, "if you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."  The only way I have discovered how to change the way I look at things is through changing my thoughts.  Before I can even change my thoughts I must become aware to them and decide if they are serving me or not. It is time to focus on the good in our individual lives and as we begin to change our perspective and see life through a new set of eyes---when we do this, everything will begin to change. That is the power of one word!  And today we focus on perspective.  Be sure to check out my FREE Ebook that I created just for you.  It is called the One Word Way.  You will discover how to ditch willpower and put on word power as you create the life you desire.  To get your copy go to www.becomingwithbecky.com/join.  I will show you how to change three simple words that will allow your perspective to up level!   It time to create the life you desire---it time to take that first step!  I am here to show you how.

Are you creating a life you love?  If the answer is no--why not?  We all have been given the ability to create and have the power to change our story if we desire.  When we realize we can change our story and our life with the words we put on---we unleash a freedom and ability to create a life we love.   One little word can make all the difference.  If you are stuck in overwhelm and hustle or just plain willpower--trying to push through life...there is another way!  I have discovered that just by changing my words allows me to change everything.  I know this might sound too simple.  I used to think so too until I begin to try it.  It is a simple process but it does require effort.  Anything of value requires effort.  As my favorite quote says: "Remember little things lead to big things, seemingly insignificant indiscretions or neglect can lead to big problems.  More importantly simple, consistent, good habits lead to a life full of bountiful blessings."  Richard G. Scott I love this because I do feel I can do the little things---and with the power of words create consistent and good habits that matter.  I will give you a few positive and proactive tips regarding The Word Effect with the first three power words, Acknowledge, Ask and Accept.   I also have a free gift for you.  Go to www.becomingwithbecky.com/join to get a FREE beautiful Ebook---The One Word Way!  You will be given three words that matter that will get you started on creating the life you desire.  You will be able to discover the power just one word has to let you ditch willpower and create the life you LOVE too!

Have you ever found yourself saying "This is not the plan" to yourself--or to others? I know I have many times.  That thought is one that causes me to suffer.  Life happens and we all have experienced things not going how we desired.  This is something we all experience as human beings.  We have the life we want to happen and then the life that really does unfold.  So how do we create our most beautiful life when things don’t go as planned?  I believe we can create the life we desire and it starts with the thoughts and words we put on each day. In this episode I'll be talking about how important it is to discover and remember that we have the power to redirect our minds back to the positive.   There are 2 states of mind---the Positive (Beautiful) and the Negative (Suffering) and we can only be in one of these states at a time.  We have the power to live with more intention in the right state of mind if we choose and it starts with words! I will share more about the beautiful and suffering state of mind and give you a simple one word way---to try this week.  Discover the power in the two words--choose vs. need.  So much goodness in this episode!  Be sure to check it out.  If you are ready to create your most beautiful life---go to www.becomingwithbecky.com/freecall to schedule a free 30 session with me and I will show you how.

What if this works?  I love this question and ask myself it often.  What is your THIS?  What is that thing you secretly desire but continue to put off, hide from or not pursue?  How come?  The fear of the unknown can be crippling unless we gain an awareness of it and discover how to continue to walk forward anyway.  Oftentimes we are stuck in our story because we put on limiting beliefs.  A limiting belief is a thought we put on over and over again that holds us back from creating the result we desire. For me discovering I had the power to change my story even though I couldn't change my circumstances was amazing to discover.  I remember saying over and over again, "What if this works? What if this works?"  For me, discovering how to put on words that matter has made all the difference. So let's start to let go of those limiting beliefs and put on thoughts that help you become the person you have always desired to be.  As Oprah Winfrey said, "Nothing happens until you decide.  Make a decision and watch your life move forward."  In this episode, I will share many common limiting beliefs that many of us put on and don't even recognize the effect they are having on us. It is your time to discover the Word Effect in your life.  As you become aware of the words you are putting on, you will be able to decide if they are serving you.  If not, let's begin to change them!  I can coach you on how to begin to put on words that allow you to create the results you desire!  Go to www.becomingwithbecky.com/freecall to schedule a free session.

In this episode we discuss the power in the words "Choose Happy". I put the power of words in my life as daily reminders to redirect my focus on what is good instead of allowing my brain to show me all the things that aren't going according to "my plan." Choose Happy is a saying we see often but are we putting these words in our life or just walking by them as we focus downward on what isn't going well?  I have discovered simple ways to put these words to work in my life and share them here.  When I got a new puppy a few years back---I knew I wanted to “choose happy” despite the good and bad that comes with a puppy. I share my story---and know you have the power to “choose happy”  too! Today let’s practice putting these words on:  I am in charge of how I feel and today I am choosing happy.

What are you committed to?  How do you show up?  How do you stay committed to your dreams and desires?  . Today, we discuss the importance of putting on the words that matter and see how to honor commitments to ourselves.  It is easy to plan ahead of time but when it is time to show up we can often "balk" and let our primitive brain keep us stuck from moving forward.  To honor commitments we want to engage our prefrontal cortex of our mind to honor the things we have committed.  How do we do this? I have learned the power found in 4 Cs--that Dan Sullivan, a strategic coach and author speaks about.  He shares about Commitment, Courage, Capable and Confidence. . I will share what I have discovered about putting on all of these words to continue to put the Word Effect in your life.  Time will go by so today is the day to start to put on words that matter!  If you are not creating the results you desire yet---you have the ability to change that  and put on other thoughts that will serve you better.  To learn more about life coaching and how you ditch willpower and put on words power to create the life you have always desired, sign up for a free 30 min coaching call at www.becomingwithbecky.com/freecall . I would love to show you HOW to step forward and honor your commitments!  As Martin Luther King Jr. said, "take the first step in faith.  You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take that first step."   . You ready to step forward?  I am ready to show you how!  It starts as we learn to honor commitments to ourselves.

Today we talk about the Power to Choose!  The definition of the words choose is simple:  pick out or select as being the best or most appropriate of two or more alternatives.  Are you choosing or creating the life you have always wanted or are you just waiting for life to happen.  It is time to discover how to redirect our thoughts to allow us to create the desired results we have been secretly desiring.   Discover how to live a joyful life as I share simple stories and tips---to allow you to change your words so you change your life.  Go to www.becomingwithbecky.com/freecall to schedule a 30 min session where I will show you how to become the watcher of your own thoughts.  Then you will have the ability and power to choose which ones you want to keep putting on and which ones you can give yourself permission to let go of.   Plus at the end there will be a simple challenge---to replenish your spirit with self care---it is amazing!  I can't wait to share.  You and I truly have the power to choose and this reminder helps us redirect our thoughts to those that are becoming.

For every choice we make or don't make there is an effect. Cause and effect is the relationship between two things when one thing makes something happen.  In essence--the cause is the thing that makes other things happen.  The effect refers to what the results are. Michale J. Fox said this, "everything is cause and effect.  If you don't move, nothing will move with you and nothing will move toward you." You and I must take the step to move.  This idea puts the power back in our control to change and to stop waiting on our circumstances to change us. The cool thing is with words--you and I have the power to change them and put on words that create the effect we desire.  When we think about the Word Effect---we see that the words we put in our lives will have an effect.  Words matter and we want to become more aware of the words we put on.  If we are not getting the effect we desire or result---we have the ability to change our words.

Did you know--you have the ability and choice to make each day amazing?  I spent so much time waiting for my circumstances around me to change to make me feel better...and I spent a lot of time waiting.  Today---I decide how to make each day amazing with what I have in front of me.  I practice living in today with the 4 Cs I will share from Dan Sullivan. Recently I listened to Clint Pulver www.clintpulver.com speak who I recommend this simple idea.  He said, "Stop looking at issues and start to look for possibility."   If I allow myself to focus on the issues in a given day---this is all I see.  When I take a breath and decide what words to put on--I allow myself to start to look at the possibilities and you know what!  There are so many---if I just look. As Zig Ziglar said, "if you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time."  We must focus our thoughts on the good and put on thoughts that serve us. Today-- let's decide to MAKE TODAY AMAZING!

Be Good At You!  We all have a story to share---why?  Because we are each a divine creation of God and our unique ability of being here on earth is worth sharing despite the circumstances we live in. As we progress forward in our lives---many of us have become stuck in the negative thoughts we put on.  Thoughts that we put on over and over again begin to become beliefs and we stop questioning.  If the thoughts are negative, our brain looks for evidence to prove them true.  If we begin to look for the negative, that is all we will see, negative.  The power found in the Word Effect can be positive or negative.  You get to choose!  The words we put on either move us forward or backwards in our story--it all has to do with the choices we make as individuals. Today, let's choose to make progress forward.  Be Good At You!! Isn’t that great!  To know that we have the power to change our story to make it one of becoming the person we have always secretly desired by discovering how to put on thoughts that will better serve us. Mandy Hale, said words I just love, ”just be yourself, let people see the real, imperfect, flawed, quirky, weird, beautiful, magical person that you are.”  How do we let people see this?  It has to do with the thoughts we put on---as we embrace who we are today.

Life is a matter of choices for you and me.  In fact most everything we do or not do starts out from a decision we make.  John C. Maxwell said, "Life is a matter of choices and every choice you make makes you."  Are we aware of the decisions we are making or not making?  Are you experiencing decision fatigue?   Each one of us has decisions to be made right now.   When we have to make lots and lots of decisions we can get stuck in decision fatigue.  When this happens to me, I often begin to feel overwhelmed and can spiral into a negative bias cycle where my brain just looks for what is not going well and keeps me stuck.  Decisions are the ultimate power we have in our lives.  Brooke Castillo, master certified coach of the Life Coach School said this, "decisions are where we can find the power to create the lives we want to create and evolve into the highest version of ourselves."   So HOW do we continue to make decisions?  As human beings we all have decisions to make on a regular basis.  This is what sets us apart as humans from other mammals.  Most of us stop making decisions when we get older.  We fall into the patterns of living out the decisions we have made in the past.  Today I will share three ideas that will allow you to step forward out of decision fatigue. First, Set Priorities, Second, Remember Self Care and Third practice a Routine.  More thoughts on these three simple ideas will be shared on todays episode.  Are you ready to create the life you have always desired?  It is time to schedule a free coaching session with me to discover how!  www.becomingwithbecky.com/freecall.  Words Matter!  Discover how to create your most beautiful life.

Are you stuck in hustle and overwhelm of life?  Are you stuck in "The Grind"?  What if I told you that being in "The Grind" is normal and that it just shows we are human beings with brains.  If you wait until you want to do things, you might spend most of your life waiting.  How to plan ahead of time and get things done comes when we make simple changes to the thoughts we are putting on each day.  This allows us to work in "The Grind" and still feel joy. There are lots of things in life that we might not want to always do but they are just something we do. For example, doing laundry.  It is not my favorite task or even a task I really enjoy because it is always there but as I have acknowledged this, asked myself how I want to show up to doing laundry and accepted that it is still a choice I make.     Laundry is a simple example of "The Grind" but I know you can all relate.  In this episode I offer three simple ideas that allow you show up and be okay that "The Grind" is a part of our lives and we can show up happy and still be able to accomplish what we desire. There is power in self care, power in connection and power to not quit and I will share are positive and proactive tips regarding all of these in this episode. If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired in perfectionism, procrastination, and self pity- Go to www.becomingwithbecky.com/freecall to sign up for a free coaching session to see how you too can get out of the hustle and overwhelm of life and experience joyful living even in "The Grind"!

The thoughts we put on each day matter.  This episode is short and sweet but these Power Words will make all the difference.  With the hustle and overwhelm of life, it is easy to focus on what we can't do.  What if we focus on what we can.  Let us practice putting on the words, "Say You Can".  There is always going to be uncertainty in life but when we say to ourselves that we can---we empower our brain to look for solutions instead of focus on the obstacles ahead. Enjoy this week and just Say You Can!

These power words are ones I suggest we each discover and begin to put on.  The Word Effect found in this simple phrase, I accept myself unconditionally, right now is life changing!  I know because I have experienced it myself and know you these words will matter to you too...if you are willing to try. When we "put on" or think about thoughts over and over again they become the stories we believe.  It is time to examine and question those thoughts that are not serving you and realize you have the power to begin to put on new thoughts, true thoughts.    A phrase that has been life changing in my life is, I accept myself unconditionally, right now.  When I heard the simple suggestion to start putting these words in my story by saying them to myself every morning, middle of day and evening, I was a bit skeptical.  How can these words matter?  Thank goodness I felt the nudge to do it anyway and began to consistently say these words to myself.  I didn't realize it at the time but I had stopped accepting myself unconditionally--because I had fallen into the negativity bias of life.  My mind was always trying to show me what wasn't going well in life instead of focusing on what was amazing right in front of me. As we look for the good---we will begin to see the good around us.  Even though we are not perfect, you and I are enough just the way was are. This podcast will give you permission to start putting on these words and begin to feel unconditional love for yourself in your journey of life.

When is the last time you asked yourself this question, "Am I having fun?"  If the answer is no, let's discover why not and better yet, decide how to begin to have fun again in our lives.  Now this doesn't mean we just get rid of all responsibility and cares of the world.  No, we still have responsibility and must live life on life's terms, yet are we having joy in our lives too?     I had the opportunity to be a part of a 40 over 40 campaign by @emilypearlphotography.  I'm so grateful I took the opportunity and decided to act on the desire of my heart instead of listen to my brain tell me all the reasons I shouldn't do it.  I decided to do it because I just wanted to.  It sounded fun!   Or a mentor of mine, Christie Gardiner @christiegardinerofficial who has helped me with my writing, posted about her desire to go back to school and for no other reason than because "I want to" did she take the step to start. It is empowering to see others chase and pursue their dreams!  You too can discover the life you were meant to live by beginning to put The Word Effect in your life.  What is on the desire of your heart today? Are you having fun? Be sure to take a few minutes to acknowledge this, begin to ask and accept---and you are on your way to becoming.

How do you invest in ourselves?  It is always easier to invest in others than it is to focus on our desires or needs.  Why is that?  My good friend and Coach Robyn Mons @robyn_mons_coaching recently reminded me of some great questions to ask ourselves when our brain begins to object when it is time to implement.  In this episode, I will be sharing about the motivational triad that our lower brain offers us to motivate us to not change.  When we become aware of this and begin to appeal to our natural motivators--we will regain our power to become our best self.  . As you ask questions and see that it is normal to want to avoid pain, conserve energy and seek pleasure in everything we do, we allow ourselves to be human beings.  This is normal.  We can then experiment upon the word--that is The Word Effect and as we acknowledge, ask and accept we will begin to move forward.  I invite you to begin to listen, learn and live the life you have always wanted. . Go to www.becomingwithbecky.com/freecall to schedule your free call to explore The Word Effect in your life and discover how you can create the life you always desired to live.  It is time to invest in you!

Become and put the Word Effect to work in your own life.  The Word Effect is a creative process to move our story forward to one of becoming.   Have you ever felt overwhelmed, in the hustle of life or just tired of creating the same result over and over again? I used to feel that way too until I discovered a power within--and it has to do with words.     As we put on words that matter we not only begin to move our story forward but we feel more like we belong and in turn we become.  It is a beautiful circular motion forward.   The power of just one word can up level us, our story and who we are striving to become.   The Word Effect can happen with any words you choose to put on but the 7 power words recently shared are a creative process you can experience over and over again.   Over the last 8 episodes--we have taken a closer look at 7 power words.  If you are just joining us---be sure to go back and begin from episode 19.

The definition to aspire is "to direct ones hopes or ambitions towards achieving something". This is why "Aspire" is the last power word in The Word Effect.  We have the power within to redirect our brain towards greatness.  The simple way to do it is with the words we choose to put on.   We are living our story as it unfolds and want to remember that is all about progress instead of perfection.  Where is your focus today?  Let the power of words redirect your thoughts towards ones that create the results you desire.  If you are ready to change your story and create the life you want---take simple effort and practice putting on words that serve you.  Discover The Word Effect in your life.  In this episode we will discuss ladder thoughts and ideas for taking small and simple steps to move your story forward.

How we choose to spend our time makes all the difference and today I talk about the power word: Appreciate.  One circumstance that we all have in common is the amount of time in a day, a week, or a year.  This is the same for all of us.  What makes some of us get things done and some not? I believe it has to do with the thoughts we put on.   Most of us don’t live our days deliberately, we live unconsciously and let the day slip away without using anything to manage our time. Do you intentionally and deliberately choose how you spend your time?  I want to suggest that this simple awareness of The Word Effect and how to put on the word appreciate--can change your story just as it has mine.   We can change our story in 15 min increments.  It is in the little things that matter.  It is time to stop living in perfectionism, procrastination and self-pity.  When we take action from this place, we don't end up taking any action at all, we just think about doing it.  It is time to do instead of think and the way to do this is with the thoughts you choose to put on each day.  In the book, "Promptings" Kody Bateman, founder of Send Out Cards, says "Until you consistently do something everyday to trigger the positives in your life, you will only be learning, not doing."   As you consider how you use your time, here are a few quick exercises you can try.  First, write down how you spent your last 24 hours.  Having an awareness of how you have been spending your time will give you an indication of how you think about time. Second, begin to answer these questions.  Take some time and write out your answers instead of just keeping the thoughts in your head.  When you ask yourself questions and require your brain to answer---amazing things happen. Do you believe you have enough time?  Why or why not? What takes up your time and why? What do you believe your time is for? --- If you want to join the private Facebook Group to discover How Words Matter---here is the link http://www.facebook.com/groups/discoverhowwordsmatter/ To get the Free Print, "Gratitude Helps You Fall In Love With The Life You Already Have--here is the link https://www.becomingwithbecky.com/join/ It is time for you to discover how to ditch willpower and create the life you have always wanted--with word power!  It is time to discover The Word Effect.

It is time to ditch willpower and put on word power!  Action is power word #5.  As we discover the power in our feelings and how to allow them, our lives will become better.  How we feel drives our actions and our actions create our results.  If we are not getting a result we like, we have the power to change it.  It starts with our thoughts!  Our thoughts drive everything. Like Bruce Lee said, "Don't speak negatively about yourself, even as a joke.  Your body doesn't know the difference.  Words are energy and cast spells, that's why it's called spelling.  Change the way you speak about yourself and. you can change your life.  What you're not changing, you're also choosing."   We have the power to change our thoughts and allow our feelings.  In this episode I share three ways we want to allow our feelings and why having a new perspective makes a difference.  We might not be able to control our first thought but we have the power to decide additional thought we put on.  The Word Effect is a creative process for moving your story forward.  Let's put on the word action!

Abundance is power word #4 in The Word Effect.  I believe this power word is one of the words in the creative process of becoming.  It is a word I have put on again and again that allows me to move my story forward.   I am excited to share it with you.  Wayne Dyer has said, "Abundance is not something we acquire.  It is something we tune into."  To tune into abundance we need to realize that there is opposition in all things--even with words.  The opposite of abundance is scarcity.  Stephen Covey has said this, "most people are deeply scripted in what I call the Scarcity Mentality.  They see life as having only so much, as though there were only one pie out there.  And if someone were to get a big piece of the pie, it would mean less for everybody else."  What if I were to tell you there is enough pie for everyone and it feeling abundance has to do with our thoughts we put on, not the pie itself or circumstances of life.  It is how we look at life.  As we focus on the good, we will begin to see more good.  Join me as you discover how to put on the power word abundance.  It is time for you to create the life you have always desired, and I want to show you how.

Are you ready to discover power word number 3?  It is Acceptance!  Jim Rohn has said, "You must take personal responsibility.  You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself.  That is something you have charge of."  I believe power word #3 is so important to practice putting on every single day. We have no control of the circumstances around us but we do have the power to decide what we think about it.   As human beings, we will fail and make mistakes, things will not go as planned or hoped, and life will not go  how we thought.  This is normal!   This is living life on life's terms.  There is the 50/50 of life.  There are things we like and enjoy and things that we might wish weren't in our story.  As we embrace and accept all of it, we suffer less.    I love asking myself this question...Would I do it again?  This allows me to accept where I am right now and also accept that I can always decide again if I want to continue to choose what I am doing.  The power of decision making is within each one of us.  Acting As If...is a good idea when we practice acceptance.   From the book, Language of Letting Go, Melody Beattie said, "Acting as if is a way to practice the positive.  It's a positive form of pretending.  It's a tool we use to get ourselves unstuck.  It's a tool we make a conscious decision to use.  Join me as I share some positive and proactive tips for putting on the power word of acceptance.  This doesn't change the circumstance but acting as if is a way to practice the positive.  If you are sick and tired of not getting the results you desire, it is time practice putting on The Word Effect.

The word ASK is one of the power words found in The Word Effect.   The definition of the word Ask is “to request something in order to obtain an answer or glean new information. What are you ready to ask?  What are you ready to obtain an answer to or get new information about?  There are so many questions to be asked.  I want to offer the idea that the power word ASK will be in all of our stories as we continue to walk forward.  If we stop asking--we will stop progressing. Like the Danish Proverb says, “He who is afraid of asking is ashamed of learning.” How do we stay curious & how do we continue to seek truth in the uncertainty of life?  It starts by first acknowledging where we are and where we want to be and then we begin to ask questions.  Asking questions helps us find solutions to the obstacles found in life. Join me in this episode to discover the power found in the word ask.   Words Matter, You can create the life you have always wanted with the power of words.

Acknowledge is the first power word in The Word Effect cycle.  The Word Effect is the creative process to move our story forward and it has allowed me to create the life I have always desired.  I spent a lot of my life asking "why" and found myself  in the negativity bias cycle that had me always focused on what was wrong in life.     The definition of acknowledge is:  “To accept or admit the existence or truth of.” What are you ready to acknowledge? As Craig Manning said in his book, The Fearless Mind: "acknowledging the fear- (problem, issue, desire, etc) of something can help us begin to believe different thoughts, which can give us courage to change how we approach every issue." When I became sick and tired of doing the same thing over and over again---and I began to acknowledge this my life began to change.  The Word Effect began!  The power of words has given me the courage to do something different and it all started with the words I choose to put on.  The power of words doesn’t just change our story over night. When we become consistent in our efforts by practicing to put on new thoughts, we have the power within to change our story despite the circumstances around us. As I continually acknowledge my fears, my problems, my issues and even my desires---I am able to keep moving forward with The Word Effect. If you are ready to step forward with your story, this podcast is for you.   Words Matter.  You can create the life you want with the power of words. Let's try on the word Acknowledge.

Are you ready to create the life you have always wanted?  If yes, I invite you to discover The Word Effect. Several years ago I fell into the trap of negativity bias and spent most of my time focused on what wasn’t going well in life.  I found myself feeling miserable, unsatisfied, discontent and I was waiting for my circumstances to change around me.  What I know about the power of words today is to change how you feel starts with changing your thoughts---not your circumstances.  This was my first step to discovering The Word Effect. Before I discovered the power of my thoughts, my marriage relationship was suffering, my relationship with my kids was suffering, and my relationship with myself was suffering too.  I wanted to fix it but did not know how until a prompting came to me, to change your words. I didn’t know what that meant and wanted to wait until I understood what "change your words" meant before doing anything.  I have found that waiting doesn't work, the HOW is discovered in the doing.  As I began to ask how instead of why, the power of words changed me.  It didn’t happen overnight and I still work on it on a regular basis but my life is different!  As I have changed my words, my story has changed.  Today, I am creating the life I have always wanted to live and every relationship in my life has improved, even the one with myself. Words matter!  You can create the life you want with the power of words.  The words we read, say, see, hear, matter.  Recently while reading the book, “Promptings” by Kody Bateman, this message caught my attention.   He shares, “I have learned that promptings will guide you to your genius within.  I have learned that promptings are not to be analyzed; they are to be acted upon.”  I realized that changing my story started with one prompting too.  As I acted on the one prompting, others continued to come step by step. This is how I have discovered The Word Effect.  Once I stopped analyzing and started to do, I began to discover what it meant to change my words. This is the HOW of The Word Effect.  Once I got sick and tired of being sick and tired, I started to become willing to try things differently and it all started by acting on the prompting, “change your words.” Over time 7 power words have come into my story that I believe are the creative process for becoming.  It has worked for me and I want to share it with you too.  Our stories are different but the power of words work the same in all of us.  To change our story, we must start by changing our thoughts. Here are the seven power words Acknowledge, Ask, Acceptance, Abundance, Action, Appreciate, and Aspire Over the next several episodes we will discuss each power word in detail. You are welcome to join my private FB Group, Discover How Words Matter.  http://www.facebook.com/groups/discoverhowwordsmatter/ Here you can find out more about the power of words! As you discover The Word Effect in your life, you will begin to know how to ditch willpower and discover how to put on word power.   Do Words Matter?  They do!  If you are ready to create the life you have always wanted to live---The Word Effect is for you.

We all know it is best to worry about ourselves and not others---so how come it so hard at times to do so?  It is time to practice putting on the words, Judgment Free Zone.  These are words that have been a game changer for how I show up to life and I want to offer them to you too.  We can't always control our first thoughts but we do have power to decide our second and third thoughts.  When we think negative thoughts towards others or want to start to judge a person, let us remember that judgement only causes us misery, not the person we are judging.  When we think of how to be happy in life we will do best if we just keep our focus on ourselves.  A mentor of mine offered me these words to say, "change me, bless them" when I find I don't agree with how someone is doing something and want to start passing judgment.   Or like the quote says, "the happiest people I know are evaluating and improving themselves.  The unhappy people are usually evaluating and judging others."  This life is too short to be unhappy.  Where are you spending your time and focus?   I share a story referenced from this talk From Elder Dale G. Rendlund, "Do Justly, Love Mercy, and Walk Humbly with God."  https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/general-conference/2020/10/55renlund?lang=eng.  . You can find the whole message here but the story shows the importance of not judging others and continually keeping our focus on ourselves as we improve to become better.  As we begin to work on a judgement free zone in our own lives, we will discover how to put on love for ourselves.  I will share three simple tips to work on a better relationship with you and how to let go of judgments when they come up. What words will you put on today?

Where is your focus? It is time to look for the good and I am going to remind you how!   Our brains have an easier time focusing on what is not going right then on the good around us (negativity bias). The awesome thing is---we have the power within to redirect our minds to look for the good despite the circumstances.  We can't always control our first thoughts but we can discover how to redirect our minds and put on thoughts that help us focus on the good.  Abraham Lincoln said, "most folks are as happy as they make up their mind to be."  We feel a certain way by the thoughts we are putting on each day.  As we become aware of this we have the opportunity to change our perspective and look for the good.  We might not be aware of where our focus is but our brain sure pays attention.  Where are you focused?  In this episode I share about the Reticular Activating System (RAS) and talk about this simple video that explains how our RAS works.  I've included the link to the video for you to check out.  It is worth watching.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=QCnfAzAIhV.  I  . Let's keep our focus upward and outward as we look for the good!

How do you want to feel today?  Today, we discuss how to put on LOVE!  Did you know that you have the power to decide how you feel based on the thoughts you choose to put on?  As humans we all have a desire to love and be loved.   Each morning you decide what to put on physically, you begin to make little and small choices.  You might think about different circumstances that start to determine what you put on, such as the weather, what activity you are going to be doing for the day, and even how you feel as you decide. For me, every Thursday morning  I attend an adult women's clogging class.  I wake up and dress accordingly.    I wear exercise clothes, tennis shoes, and have a small bag that I take my clogging shoes in to change into once I get to the studio.  I think about what I am putting on because I know it is much easier clogging in clothes that allow me to move.  I would never choose to show up to clogging in jeans and snow-boots.   I am intentional on what I put on.   We often spend more time thinking of what to wear physically than what to put on internally!  This podcast is to remind you how important it is to think about the thoughts you choose to put on each day.  It is time to become aware of our thoughts and become more intentional on how we want to feel.   Ask yourself, How do I want to feel?  If you are wanting to feel more love in your life, I share three powerful thoughts that you can practice putting on.  I also will be sharing how powerful it is to practice as we step forward making progress in our lives.  Words Matter!  You can create the life you have always wanted with the power of words.  What words will you put on today?

As human beings we have the desire to evolve and become better. In this episode we will discuss the creative process of becoming.  You have the opportunity to put on words that allow you to step forward to who you want to become. The Word Effect allows us to ditch willpower and discover how-to put-on word power. The power of words has shown me how to take responsibility for myself and see that the power to change my story is within me.  You can change your story with the words you choose to put on.  A belief is a thought we have put on over and over again and forget to even question it.  The great thing about this is that the power to change our thoughts is within each one of us. A baby learning to walk falls down and just gets up and tries again.  If the baby looks to her past, she would never walk because she has no evidence of walking before.  The baby is always future focused and that is what allows her to keep moving forward. She isn’t thinking I can’t do this; she is focused on that she can. We all started out with future focus thinking too. Today we are doing things that we never knew how to do such as walking, talking, etc. There came a time in our lives that we started to look to our past for evidence and became more past focused. I share a story on this episode of a friend who decided to stop dreaming because she would only look to her past and it showed her that she hadn't accomplished any of the things she desired so she decided to stop trying!  When we look to our past, we don't see evidence that we have done the things we desire to do or be and many of us stop trying, just as my friend did. It is time to discover how to dream again and live our lives with future focus!   When we put on words that drive the creative process of becoming, we will experience The Word Effect which has us looking forward not backwards.  It allows us to step forward from stories that were stuck in perfectionism, self-pity and procrastination to ones of becoming and being the person we secretly desired to be.  We don't have to do more to become we just have to put on thoughts that better serve us. It is time to "see the world differently" as one of my favorite books, “What Do You Do with an Idea" by Kobi Yamada states. I love this book so much that I share the entire book in this episode.  The words are powerful and true! I invite you to see the world differently too and it starts with the words you decide to put on. Words Matter. You can create the life you want with the power of words. What words will you put on today?

How are you showing up to your life?  Are you living the life you have always wanted to create for yourself?  Why not?  It is time to ask these empowering questions and discover that our own unique story is powerful and amazing just the way it is today!  When we think of our story, it often has a negative thought attached because our focus tends to be on what isn't happening instead of what is.  We can't always control our first thought but we have the power to decide what thoughts we continue to put on over and over again.  When we have thoughts with the words should or shouldn't never serve us.  Like I should have done this or I shouldn't have done that.  They are thoughts that make us feel less than, discouraged, or disappointed and never drive actions to create the results we have wanted.  We want to ask empowering questions that allow our brain to focus on the good.  As we ask these questions we will discover how to put on thoughts that help us feel unconditional love and acceptance for the story we have created.  There is power to change our story but first we must accept where we are!  Brene Brown has said, "Vulnerability is hard, and it's scary, and it feels dangerous, but it is not as hard, scary, or dangerous as getting to the end of our lives and having to ask ourselves, 'what if i would have shown up?'  Are you showing up for your life?  We often think, I will show up when this or that is happening and we continue to wait for our circumstances to change.    It is our thoughts that cause our suffering, not our circumstances!  This is good news to know because we can change our thoughts that power is within each of us.   As you decide how you want to belong---you will discover who you were meant to be and will learn that comparing ourselves to others is not the answer.  If you are ready to experience the creative process of The Word Effect, continue to show up and see how powerful words are.  Words matter.  You can create the life you want with the power of words.  I can't wait to show you how to belong and just be you!
