my four keys to success

I’ve been a coach and teacher for many years. I’ve helped men and women discover their passions, learn how to escape their personal limitations, and grow to new heights. 

When you start a personal growth journey, a lot of ingredients go into the mix.  

Courage

First and foremost, it takes courage! Courage to admit you can do better and be willing to try new things.  

It takes a massive amount of courage to set out into new territory. Whatever your version of “familiar” is…even if it’s not ideal…is often much more comforting psychologically than something new. The human brain doesn’t like gambling on comfort. We’re creatures of habit. 

Being open to the new is truly half the journey. 

Mentorship 

The second ingredient for success is mentorship. Change takes a good mentor or coach. I set up my Academy to teach others how to find their success and be prosperous. But you know what? I, too, have a coach! 

I’ve always been hard on myself. I find and exaggerate my faults. Sometimes I refuse to admit areas where I need to improve. It’s human nature! But a good mentor or coach will help you see yourself as you really are. They’ll help you find a path for growth and hold you accountable.  

Whether you take a course in my Academy, find a personal coach, or connect with a colleague to ask for support. That extra knowledge-sharing and accountability is key for your OPTIMUM SUCCESS. 

Self-reflection 

The third thing that you need to grow is insight. This can come from so many sources.  

Self-reflection plays a big role. We learn so much of how we act (and react) from our family. And from our experiences growing up. Was your family fighting all of the time? If so, calm might be unfamiliar and even uncomfortable. So, you stir up drama because it feels “normal.”  

I also teach about insight in my courses. If you want to make money, you need to do some digging into your past and find your money blocks. 

Perhaps you grew up in a family that never had enough. Or, your parents viewed rich people as spoiled and selfish. These types of views can lead to a skewed perspective on success and making money. There could be a subconscious belief that, if you become wealthy, you would become a spoiled brat. And, to you, it’s more important for you to be a good person that may struggle with money. But, once you understand these blocks, you can work towards removing them and opening up to wealthy and successful energy. This is rereferred to as your Money Mindset. And you know the old saying, “It’s not how much you make, it’s how much you keep.”

 Astrology

The stars are there to guide you. So, why not let them. Your personalized money report is a great way to learn more about your relationship with money.  

How do you like to earn money? What is your potential? And what areas are you likely to excel in when it comes to making money? The money report contains all of this info.  

For instance, I discovered that while I love to be creative and work independently. But, my major purpose in life was teaching. My Part of Fortune is in Taurus (rules money.) And in my Ninth House of teaching. Your Part of Fortune will show you where is your greatest happiness and Joy and where you will be the most PROSPEROUS.

For me, when I learned this, I’d had my YouTube channel for a while. My videos help guide people’s lives. But I realized that teaching was much more my passion and a key to my happiness. That’s when I felt that it was time to start my Academy. It was scary to move out of my comfort zone. Life never provides guarantees that what you do will work out, but I knew it was time to grow in a new direction and that I could help many people build a path to their own financial independence. 

I thought to myself, if I am unwilling to take a chance, how could I ask my students to take a chance with me? 

The minute you choose to do what you really want to do, it’s a different kind of life. I was ready for my life to be different. Sometimes it’s good to shake things up and break out of your comfort zone and take your life in a new direction.  

Here’s the bottom line: if you want success, you deserve every possible tool to get yourself there. Maybe you want to grow a business. Maybe you want to pay down your credit cards. Maybe for you it’s about finding inner peace in the new year.  

I believe in you! Whatever goal you’re searching for, you are worth the best! There’s no point in doing anything halfway.  

Go ALL IN in 2020 and work every angle and every avenue! Be UNSTOPPABLE and you WILL get there!

To your success! 

Love,

are you ready for love?

The holidays are fast approaching. I’m hearing Christmas songs and seeing black Friday ads. My email is being flooded with sales for Thanksgiving tableware. Recipes for tasty new side dishes are everywhere. What’s not to love, right? 

Well, for some, there’s a lot not to love.  

The holidays often represent disappointment. It’s another trip around the sun where you didn’t find your soulmate. There will be questions from family about when you’ll be bringing someone home. There will holiday parties to attend solo. After a wonderful celebration, you come home to a house that may feel empty.  

Well, as alone as you may FEEL. I promise you that you are NOT ALONE! In fact, the word alone means All~One. In truth, we have all been there at some point in our life. I’ve certainly been there myself. Know that you are loved and appreciated. Know that you’ve got a cheering section bigger than you know. And, that everyone wants to see you happy and prosperous – especially finding love!

Let’s be real. I’m not talking about the Hallmark card love. I’m talking about the stability of having a life partner. You may feel that you’ve exhausted your efforts trying to find someone. You might even think a soulmate doesn’t exist for you. They do! 

I genuinely believe that we all have soulmates out there just waiting to be found. The question is…are you ready? Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you hate any of your exes?
  • Do you still get mad or sad about a breakup?
  • Are you jealous of an ex’s new partner?
  • Do you have trouble being truly happy for any exes’ successes since you’ve split?

Did you answer yes to any of those questions? Then, you have more work to do. 

Here’s what I want for you to do. For any relationship you’re still dealing with:

  • Write down three GOOD things that came out of it.
  • Write down three ways you have become a better person because of the relationship…or even because of the breakup.
  • Write down three reasons why YOU ARE OK alone.

Once you have your list, you’ll want to read through it every night. Next, picture what type of soulmate you want. Don’t focus on physical traits. Focus on mental and spiritual qualities. Focus on kindness, patience, and energy level.  

Remember the Law of Attraction! You create your own life! So why not start by creating the life you want in your head. Focus on it. Feel how you want your life to be. And please, KNOW that you deserve it! Because you do! Think about how your life will change and for the better. And I promise you IT WILL! It may not be tomorrow. It may not be before the holidays. 

Before you know it, though, you will have brought precisely the kind of energy into your life that you BELIEVE you deserve. It comes down to what you are ready to receive. And are you good at receiving? 

I have an amazing new report called the Kindred Spirits Report. This report provides an in-depth insight into your relationship patterns. And offers insights into how to meet your needs in intimate unions.  Remember the biggest relationship your having is with yourself. Are you kind and generous with you? Be your own best friend. Be your own soul mate.  Give to you the love that you want from another. When you do this, you are aligning yourself with one who can give you the LOVE that you deserve.

Once you’ve found a potential match. Consider getting a Synastry Relationship Report. This report compares your astrology with your partner’s. It will show you where you’re best aligned. And where you may have some challenges one day. There’s no better way to guide your relationship through the bumpy road of life. 

“Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out that there are so many of them in the world.”

Are you a winner or a troll?

I’ve been in this business long enough that I can predict who will be successful in their goals. I can also see who will not. I’m going to share a few predictors here:

Predictor number one:

Are you willing to do the research to learn? Will you put in the work necessary? Are you WILLING to roll up your sleeves for 16-hour days? No? Well, I’ve got bad news for you.

Predictor number two:

Are you working to your strengths? Are you seeking ways to play to your strengths? If not, it’s time to start exploring what makes you HAPPY. What are you good at? What comes natural to you? If you don’t know what you’re good at, start exploring! Once you’ve got a few ideas, find ways to make money with it.

Predictor number three:

Are you genuinely happy for those around you? When friends are successful while you’re at a low point, are you still jumping for JOY with them?

This is such a simple thing. It doesn’t cost anything. It doesn’t even take any time. In fact, it often takes MORE time to be unhappy at someone’s success. So, why are so many people happier when they’re putting others down?

Misery loves company, right? Well, so does success. If you want success, surround yourself with successful people. CELEBRATE with them! All it takes is a quick text, call, or note. Even just a quick positive vibe sent their way can be a HUGE asset for both them AND YOU!

When we send positivity into the world, we get positivity back. We get SUCCESS!

And negativity breeds more of the same. Why jeopardize your own success by putting negative energy into the world? Negativity will only bring YOU down. Did you know that we make more wrinkles from frowning then we do from smiling?

Here’s another side effect of celebrating others. Once you get used to celebrating others. It becomes much easier to CELEBRATE yourself. There are so many people out there that hide in the shadows. They don’t share their goals or their successes. They have lots of excuses as to why they’re not where they want to be. Are you one of those people?

I promise, if you start sharing your successes – even the little ones – you’ll find so much support from those that want to celebrate YOU! Sure, there may be a few trolls along the way, but who cares? Trolls are only spewing their own negativity because they’re unhappy. Ignore them and move on. This is why you have a delete key.

Focus on celebrating others and too let them celebrate you!  Don’t be shy. Be bold. Be brave. I don’t always get it RIGHT the first time. What is that saying, third time’s a charm. “Success is not final. Failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts.” –Winston Churchill

Now here’s your challenge. Share one thing this week with others that you’re proud of. It doesn’t matter how big or small it is, let it out. Take a chance. Shine your light. And watch the LOVE pour in!

Love,

Kelley

What is spooking you?

Since today is Halloween, I thought it would be fun to talk about ghosts. I love horror movies – including ghost stories. I’m not into the slasher-type horror flicks.  But I do like the psychological ones that feel real – like they could actually happen.  

As much as I love a ghost story, though, I do not like ghosts. You see, I’m not talking about the kind that slams doors or hovers over your bed at night. I’m talking about the ones you carry with you day in and day out. They haunt your every thought, your every decision. They leave you sleepless at night. They wreak havoc on your relationships, your job, your self-esteem. They turn your whole life upside down! 

We all have them. Ghosts live inside of you. Ghosts whisper to us and tell us that we’re not good enough. Maybe your ghost is an abusive ex that you still hear in your head. He or she is calling you a failure every time you make a choice. Or, maybe it’s a parent that was too hard on you as a child. You can still hear them telling you that you’re too this or too that. Or that you are just not good enough.   

Ghosts whittle away at your self-esteem by buzzing in your mind with negative thoughts.  

Here’s the thing, though. These ghosts are imaginary. They live in your head! Their sole purpose is to sabotage you. This is good news. It means it is possible to banish them!  

To banish them, though, you need to fully understand WHY these ghosts have hung around.  

I’m going to tell you why right now: 

As bad as it may be, the familiar can be more comfortable than the unknown.  

That voice in your head telling you that you’re a failure? Well, you know what failure looks like, right? But what does happiness look like? Happiness (or success, or true love, etc.) is brand new. And I bet it’s a little scary, right? 

In my Academy, in every course I teach, I include a section about how to clear your money blocks. Money blocks are those things that keep you from earning what you know you deserve. They’re just like ghosts. 

Find the source of your ghost, understand what it’s doing for you, and you can beat it. I promise. Who are you not live your full potential? Why would Creator send you here to live small and hide your light? God wants for you to live the abundant life. In this way, you can do more for the world. This is good. 

Now, since it is Halloween, go have one last hurrah with those old ghosts! Spend a little time with them and examine why they’re lingering in your life. Then it’s time to start fresh and banish them from your mind. 

Your homework is for every negative thought your ghost says to you, you will replace with two positives about you. They can be anything. For instance, you are kind. You are a good listener. See where I am going with this assignment? 

Now, what are two things you like about you? 

Love,

There is no spell to cast for success

I get asked all the time how to start a business. How to grow a business. How to become successful doing what you love. The truth is, there is no magic pill. There is no spell to be cast. I’ve got no secret weapons that I deployed to grow my channel, courses, and business.  

You know what I do have? A passion for helping people, a desire to learn, and a whole lot of determination. 

These are the traits that separate successful people from those that are still struggling. This is GOOD NEWS! It means that if you haven’t yet reached your goals. YOU CAN! Anybody can! 

So, if you want to start or grow a business. You want to help people. Simple enough, right? You might want to help them clean their carpets. Or you might want to help them manage their finances. When you boil it down, it’s all the same. Helping people is your bottom line. No matter what your business.

Next, you have to know HOW to help them. Sure, you need to know how to clean carpets well. But you also need to know how to MARKET yourself. and how to buy the right equipment to do the job.  

If no one knows you exist. you’re not helping them. If you show up and don’t have the right tools. You’re not helping them. Helping people isn’t just about solving their problems. Helping your customers is about being good at running your business. 

Now comes the key. 

You don’t want to look at marketing as a big, scary task. You want to look at it as finding your ideal client so you can HELP them. Don’t get bogged down trying to find the best cleaning machine. Don’t throw up your hands because you’re not good at mechanical stuff. It’s just another facet of helping your client. And you can handle it!

With this subtle mind shift, things get a lot less daunting. And a lot easier to manage. Try to see your product or service from the customers point of view. Frame your marketing in a way that speaks DIRECTLY to them.

The first question that people ask is, “What’s in it for me?” This is human nature. How are you going to help me? Are you going to solve my problem? Are you going to teach me something new? Are you going to make me laugh and see the lighter side of life? See where I am going with this? Walk a mile in the shoes of your ideal client. Empathy is a key ingredient to your marketing success. The market (your tribe) will tell you what they want from you. Your job is to listen to their feedback and then act upon it.

So, next time you’re not sure how to do something. Or what you need to do next. Do what I do: JUST DIVE IN! Take a few bites out of that elephant each day. And acknowledge your wins big or small each day.

Google is your friend! There are Facebook groups and message boards for every topic under the sun. There are local networking clubs. You can find YouTube videos on every subject you can think of. And some you would never have dreamed of! There are also training sites like Udemy and LinkedIn Learning. 

Did you know there is a Facebook group dedicated to people who use Wix to blog? There’s another for running Google Ads. There’s one for dry cleaner owners, for massage therapists, and Etsy sellers. And for just about anything you can think of. And, most of them are free to join. If it’s free. it’s for me. One of my favorite sayings! These groups are filled with experts. Who are ready to share their knowledge about the industry and the lessons that they’ve learned along the way. This is good news! YAY!

The next time you don’t know how to do something. I challenge you to dig in and find out. Do the research work. Eliminate distractions from your life.  And master your craft. Become the best at what you do!

 It doesn’t matter if it’s something big or just a little thing. Google it! Search it on YouTube! Reach out on a Facebook Group. Or find a message board that specializes in that topic.

Now, you do need to know some limits. For instance, if you know nothing about websites. You might want to hire a web developer. BUT once that website is built and you need a quick picture change? Google “updating a Wix picture” (or WordPress, or Shopify…) You’ll be amazed at the resources out there. Just waiting for you.  

Your willingness to learn and your pure DETERMINATION to find out is what will separate you from the dreamers. 

I promise, every time you learn something new. You’ll be super-proud of yourself. As you ought to be! This is how you grow fast and work smart. 

Now, what have you been struggling with lately? Go research that RIGHT NOW!

Love,

Kelley
