Women's Empowerment tips: One hindrance to a success mindset

Tweet this post

Did you know that one critical thing to your breakthrough and authentic life empowerment is to make the right mindset shifts?

And one of those shifts is a shift to a success mindset. I've shared essential keys to mindset breakthroughs, the importance of a success mindset and today I want to share one of the hindrances to a success mindset. One hindrance is that of not being aware of fatal distractions and being overcome by fatal distractions.

One hindrance to a success mindset is that of not being aware of fatal distractions and being overcome by fatal distractions.

The following are the definitions as found in the dictionary.

Fatal: a: causing death b: bringing ruin c: causing failure

Distraction: a: the act of distracting or the state of being distracted; especially: mental confusion

We could say that it represents bringing ruin to our mental focus. Another way to look at it is causing death and mental confusion with regard to a desired outcome, destination, etc.

Let's move on and I'd like to present another view of fatal distraction.

One typo, two typos, three typos, four? This was the pattern that followed as I continued to read. It was a good book, something that would benefit my spirit man tremendously. I felt like I was being lifted, challenged, restored and then it happened.... The power of the reading was diluted and my attention was drawn to the errors. I'm not saying this to draw attention to the errors found in books or other readings as now you may look for errors in this article. (smile).

When I saw the first one it wasn't a big deal, then the second one and I said to myself wow two on one page. I turned the page and saw yet another and actually stopped to make sure the error was there.

What was this? Why am I so interested in the errors that are here? It wasn't the errors I was interested in it was a fatal distraction. The word fatal means "causing or ending in death." There is definite opposition to our success and the goal to make sure that we die spiritually and/or physically. You will be presented with distractions the bottom line is that many are meant to be fatal. It took me sometime to stop what I was doing to refresh myself with devotion, devotion that would give life and refresh my vision.

Watch out for fatal distractions. Don't let distractions break your focus or intercept your endeavor to make mindset shifts. Being consumed by fatal distractions can send negative energy to your subconscious mind.

Maybe you're trying to get clear on your goals, vision and purpose you must do whatever is needed to overcome the fatal distractions that will come. Defuse the power of the opposition to your endeavours.

When you pray turn off the ringer on the phone if you must. Have devotions at the time of day where there is the least traffic going through your home.

How many fatal distractions have you been presented with? Is Father God trying to get you to the next level and can't because you are distracted by altercations that seem to occur often? Is He trying to warn you of your lack of spiritual development but you are being distracted by your commitment to your job and the promotion that may finally be realized? Maybe there is a witty idea and invention that is trying to be made available to you and yet you are more focused on another situation. Block the distraction! Press in, stay close, and draw nigh to Father God. Realize a mindset shift to success by being aware of and overcoming fatal distractions.

What spoke to you in this post about fatal distractions?

Go ahead, write it down and add how you can use this information
before your head hits the pillow.

Are you dealing with dis-empowering behaviors? Want to unstop the blockage to your empowering success?

Maybe you'd like to remove the emotional baggage, phobias, and toxic behaviors from your life. Are you afraid that you will succumb to your negative thoughts and self talk? I know you long to be free to live the most delicious abundant life available to you. Did you know that toxic behavior and thoughts can also induce unhealthy habits, weight gain and chronic illnesses. These behaviors are at the root of your lack of personal, spiritual and business success.

Women's empowerment: Reader's Q & A... Limiting beliefs and my true self

Q: What is your most pressing question where it concerns your
personal, spiritual and business empowerment?

A: Transitioning from my old self, with those limiting beliefs, to who I truly am.

The first place you want to begin is what I call awareness. In this step
you need to take inventory of your limiting beliefs. You can identify them
without placing them in categories and after you've identified some of them
you can then categorize them in the money, education, career, faith and
other category. Don't get too caught up on this simply jot down what comes
to mind.

Why do you have those limiting beliefs?

What steps can you add that will assist you in overcoming your limiting

Another key factor is your mindset. I won't go deep into this, however,
a lot of our success is sabotaged by our mindset and you would do good
to discover what your mindset is and make the necessary shifts.

You can do this on your own or enlist the help of a coach such as myself
who are equipped with various tools and experience to support you in
this endeavor.

In order to know where you're going you must know where you are.
This is also true where it concerns evolving to who you truly are.
Make sure you are clear on who you are. What are your core values?
What is your purpose? Vision?

All of the above will support your endeavor towards transitioning from
your old self to who you truly are.

The steps mentioned above are supported by my Dream Launch
eCoaching program.

Empowered Entrepreneurial women are students of life

What separates an Entrepreneurial leader from a follower?

There are many characteristics, however, entrepreneurial leaders do not have a mindset that adapts to failure. Things go wrong, of course, but entrepreneurs don’t call them “failures” they call them “glitches, mistakes, bungles, setbacks” – but not failing.

I've often heard it stated that you only fail when you quit or you only fail when you fall and neglect to get up.

An empowered entrepreneurial woman will approach decision-making with the idea that there’s a strong likelihood that she will be wrong. This doesn’t dissuade them – on the contrary they just do the best they can and worry about handling obstacles as they arise.

Another way of looking at it is to realize that you will make mistakes, so make them as quickly as you can in order to learn from them. A good leader doesn’t view making mistakes as negative or irrevocable, he/she feels free to press on and try something new. There is the belief that something useful has been learned, and hopefully not at a high cost.

Since we're going to make mistakes in this life why not make use of them as learning tools and don’t make the same ones twice.

Entrepreneurs also know the value of “intuition”. While you shouldn’t act on the results of tossing a coin, there is something to be said about your “gut” feeling about the situation. Very often business people become so involved with systems and checks-and-balances that they forget about that “gut” instinct they had when they started.

While not strictly logical, intuition does draw on a combination of experience, knowledge, and analysis as well as a lot of “gut” information you may have forgotten that you have.

How do you become a strong leader? One way you become a strong leader in your business is by “practicing” being a leader. It’s not a course you can take at a business college; it’s learned in the school of life as you’re doing business.

As a leader, you have to set standards and higher standards for your own behavior. You must do this because appearances are sometimes more important that facts.

You must also set a commanding presence.
Do you maintain the appearance of leadership? Do you project a confident appearance of a successful entrepreneur?

Presenting yourself as a confident entrepreneur, filled with the excitement of your business idea, and a strong leader of your team (whether it’s 1 or 10 employees) is what will make you a winner and add untold weight to your Business Plan. After all, you are your business to that ideal client/customer so you’d better look good and confident.

To protect that faith that your people and your customers have in your organization, always ask yourself these two questions:

Could this be interpreted by anyone in a way that would shake their faith in my leadership?
Could this be misinterpreted and held against me or the company?

One quality that every empowered entrepreneurial woman must possess is the ability to bounce back. Strong leaders know that leadership is a lifelong learning experience,and
that they are students of life and when they make a mistake they simply continue to move forward.

Don't waste your time waddling in the mud. When you don't achieve the desired result, get up and try again quickly.

shifts so you can live a golden delicious life?

Savvy woman and woman entrepreneur Empowerment: Don't let fear steal your life

If you listen to your fears, you will die never knowing what a great person you might have been.— Robert H. Schuller

This is a very powerful quote. As a savvy woman and woman entrepreneur it is
imperative that you acknowledge that you will experience fear in your life,
however, in order to realize authentic life empowerment you must not listen
to your fears. Of course you will need to address certain areas in order
to build your self up to avoid living a fearful life.

The point is not to focus on or become consumed by fear. Your objective should
be on becoming faith-full so that fear is de-fueled.

What fears have you noticed in your life? Do you sense fear when you're
venturing out to take on a new area of business? Does the thought of building
new relationships cause fear to enter in? Have you set goals for your personal
,spiritual or business life but can't seem to get moving because of fear?

Fear can also cause procrastination. If you notice a few of the questions
above were referencing taking action. What do you do with the fear that you feel
when setting out to take action? Do you procrastinate?

This is another reason not to listen to your fears. Yes learn what you need
to in order to move forward.

Listen: 2 : to hear something with thoughtful attention : give consideration Miriam webster

Give no thoughtful attention to fear. Give no consideration to fear. Do not
listen to the plea of fear with the intent to steal your life or to steal
your destiny.

The cost: You could die never knowing the great person you might have been.
Don't let fear steal your life!

Tap into the brilliance of you
Move in the face of fear
Surround yourself with like-minded people
Become faith-full
Take Quantum leaps

I can't wait to hear about your big, bold, beautiful and delicious life!

Empowerment Diva speaks: Diva-tude (what's all the fuss?) "That's the way I see it"

OK this is going to be my approved posts under the category of "That's the way
I see it." Is that OK? Thanks.

Here lately I've been attending calls where these confident, power-women
seem to rant and rave about Divas. Some of whom I tend to believe could
fall in the same classification of a Diva in their own way.

How far should Gurus and other power figures in certain industries go in bashing
others. Aren't we often encouraged to be authentic? To be true to ourselves.

Wouldn't this also be called stereotyping?

Why do I care? I'm glad you asked. I'm the Dynamite "Authentic Life"
Empowerment Mentor, Coach, Trainer and Public speaker also known as
Empowerment Diva because I've carved a niche in the Empowerment area.
Some of the remarks I've heard doesn't describe others I know or me
at all. That tis why. "Sorry english majors!"

I currently have over 6200 friends/followers on twitter that know me
as Empowerment Diva and I haven't forced anyone to follow Empowerment "Diva"
which I feel goes to also show that the meaning of Diva and the essence
thereof is in the eye of the beholder. It is a conviction and not a moral
crusade when you attempt to persuade all within your sphere of influence
to avoid the Divas.

Why is it OK for some to bash certain categories of individuals and in
the same sentence teach us about being authentic, branding and such?
Could it be because of the double standard? Could it be because of the
$$$ and more $$$ that allows them to have the liberty to say what they
want to say?

The higher we rise and the greater influence we have
I feel that we have a responsibility to serve the greater cause and
that is to inspire all to represent their true essence. Be careful of
what you speak you may be mirroring your own soul. This doesn't
only apply to those who would rather spend their air waves speaking ill of
DIVAs but of all who have been given an opportunity to speak into the lives
of others.

Just as everyone has their own attitude at any given time, well frankly
I think Divas have Diva-tude at any given time and it is based on
each individual personality. Stop the stereo-type. Don't throw
Divas in a box especially where it concerns branding. It may be
a good idea to refrain from trying to influence everyone with your
own personal convictions simply because you can when it involves
shedding negativity on one.

That's the way I see it.

Disclaimer: This is not Guru bashing. This is a creative and informational post. When posting comments be kind. (smile)

A Woman Entrepreneur's self worth is critical to authentic life empowerment

One key area in your life that will affect every other area whether it's personal, spiritual or business life is how you see yourself.
It's important that you take inventory of how you feel about your self worth.

Take inventory of how you feel about your self worth

When you look at others how do you feel? Have you attached your self worth to your bank balance? Your self worth is about you, the person you are in life. We give others respect, love and consideration but how often do we give ourselves what is due? What we're talking about here is self esteem. How you value yourself is based on the self-esteem you have, your self-esteem shows you how much you truly value yourself. Healthy self-esteem leads to independence, happiness, flexibility, the ability to adapt easily to change, co-operation and a positive outlook on any situation. Healthy self esteem fuels your delicious life. Unhealthy or low self-esteem on the other hand leads only to irrational thoughts, unhappiness, fear of the new, defensiveness and a negative outlook on life in general.

Believe it or not how we see ourselves has a lot to do with how others see us, if we are happy, smiling and full of confidence then others see us as someone they want to be around, if we respect ourselves and portray this then others will respect you too, after all how can you ask for respect from others if you don’t even respect yourself? So finding and developing your self-worth is all about developing your self-esteem, so let’s take a look at esteem

Tips on developing your self worth
Below I will share a few tips on developing your self worth
There are plenty of ways in which you can boost your self-esteem and change to a more positive and healthy outlook about yourself,
here are some tips for developing and boosting your self-worth.

Eliminate negative self talk. Talk positively to your self, repeat affirmations and confessions to defuel negative thoughts and feelings.

Celebrate the positives. I share this tip in my eBook The Dynamic Power
of Focus
. Celebrate even the smalls achievements that you accomplish.
The participants of my Breakthrough 2010 Mentoring and Coaching program are
encouraged to do this intentionally.

Take time out for you. Never deprive yourself of something you enjoy.
Do something everyday that you enjoy, especially when you feel overwhelmed.
This allows room for creative and clarity of vision.

When you have opportunity to hear criticism from others, listen and learn from it, however, never take it to heart where you feel beat down or devalue yourself.

Realize that you are fearfully and wonderfully made. A unique one of a kind gift from Father God.

The next step is to take at least one thing from this post and apply to your
life. How can you use one thing before your head hits the pillow tonight.

It all begins with you!

Woman entrepreneur tips: Business empowerment through Article marketing

To some the thought of article marketing may be overwhelming and this
is the reason so many put it aside. This is the best approach to take
as a woman entrepreneur who desires empowerment in business.

There's lots of information on the internet and many ideas on how you
should proceed. One thing that will help you as you proceed with your
endeavors in this area is to avoid the overwhelm by easing into it.

Arm yourself with the knowledge necessary to get started on the right foot, however, you don't want to take too long to get started. There are several things that you need to make sure you know before you begin creating your first article.

Who is your target market?
What is your niche?
What is their problem or pain?
You must write a good headline incorporating key words from your key word search.
Include a good resource box.
Begin submitting to good article directories.

People are always looking for good content and they might just pick
up your article which is the beginning of creating a viral effect.

The above are just a few things to keep in mind.
You can use them as a guide to help you get started if you're a
do it yourself kind of woman.
