Foundational action in transformation of you and or your business

Foundational action in transformation of you and or your business

Foundational action in transformation of you and or your business

Being healthy and having a clean and green environment (your immediate environment) is a foundational discussion point when I discuss transformation of an individual and or business.

How many of us dream of the lifestyle experience we wish to have and for many this is based on a what appears to be a simplistic statement of “Having good health, being happy.  Being good to ourselves and others including the environment and independent to make our own choices in life with enough abundance to follow our passions”.

OK, so we know what we want. We take stock of where we are. What is the gap.  Then we put actionable steps into place to close that gap.  My superpower is helping with the gap analysis and what actions to take in what order to achieve your goals.

ONE of the foundational steps is health with a clean and green life.

How many of us get confused with the chaos and quantity of information out there, anyone can put anything up on google!  How to sift through fact and fiction when researching key elements of a healthyclean and green life.

After having early signs of stomach cancer in 2019 my specialist asked me to focus on two things.

  1. Quality water, meat and fruit/vegetables: Our body is made up of 60-70% water and am I confident of the quality of water I am putting into my body to help it do what it is made to do,  and ensure I am buying meat, fruit and vegetables from reputable providers.
  2. Taking actions that suit me to have a strong Mindset. Ensure I am doing what I need that suits me to have a strong mindset, enjoy being in the moment of today and take actions to achieve my tomorrow taking on the lessons of yesterday – but do not dwell. I had been fortunate enough to be a student of Dr John Demartini, had been mentored by Dr Alicia Fortinberry and Michelle Murray with insights from Debbie Mewes and also had benefited from working with some exceptional CXO roles from around the world in some very significant organisations and programs of work.  Working with them certainly made an impact on how I approached and found solutions to issues or obstacles.  Everyone I was mentored by or partnered with tested my boundaries and helped me take different actions for myself.   So in 2019 I reached back into my knowledge bank and refreshed what I had learned and made it a priority to take new actions for myself.

I reawakened the focus on me! I was 54 years old with a 5-year-old and I plan to be around for an awfully long time.  I re-started research and education on health and a clean green life in the context of transformation.   My background is in transformation change of mid to large size corporations so I used the same methodology approach at uncovering the end goal I wanted to achieve for myself, where was I now in life and the actions I needed to take to fill the gap for me and in what order.

Did you know 80% of transformations fail, and of the people who set goals only 10% actually achieve them.  Yep the odds are against us… so I went about and reconnected with my mentors and doing more research.

What is the thing or things that more greatly ensures success?

Mindset, Health and Discipline with a morning or night routine that suits YOU, reduce your fear by managing your own voice.  BUT recognise these things do not occur overnight.  All need us to take different actions in different ways to achieve.  

One of my first actions was GETTING MY FOUNDATION RIGHT which was a healthier me (mind and body) and a clean and green life – I have a good morning and night routine so I felt good with that.

The below is a long read from what I researched over 6 months with a focus on health and a clean and green life.

Water – Fluoride; The Third Eye and Acidic and Alkaline water

What blew me away is I did not realise low acidic water and high alkaline water also benefited the environment and its significant benefit as a disinfectant and cleaner and many health ailments! I had no idea.  AND I found a product that produces all from low acidic through to high alkaline with gold certificates!  An all in one solution = drink, clean, disinfect, beauty and plants! 

There are FOUR primary factors to consider with drinking water:

  1. Are there other additives (bottled water or town supply water)?
  2. Is there any scientific proof on this view of our third eye, pineal gland, our 7th Chakra and ‘quantum leaping’ where external elements impact water, and given our body is 60-70% of water does external impacts then affect us as humans?
  3. How acidic or alkaline is it (and what does it mean)
  4. Mineral composition

There are water testing kits you can get from local hardware or chemists if you wish to do a broad range of tests.  I also have a testing videos if you wish to see some of those.

An example of interruptions to your water quality in Australia over the summer of 2019 – 2020.  We had horrendous fires and due to the volume of water being pumped through our water ways to help fire departments with trucks and air water carriers the typical water treatment process was turned off as it could not cope with the volume of water being put through.  There is an attached link which shows you a media article– but buried in the middle of our papers.  Not on the front page.   But then for me, I also question what is in that water treatment, I am sure there are some good things – but I also question the additives added.  Either way .. for me it was about taking control of what water I was drinking, not trusting what just came out of the tap.

Researching alternate views of water additives and the impact of water quality on our bodies and our brain was my focus. 

I got really lost in all the conflicting material on water additives, the benefits or otherwise.  The below is where I landed on my key opinions.  Fluoride, the third eye, quantum leaping and facts on acidic and alkaline water.  (if you go down the path of researching these areas be prepared for some widely conflicting advice – my recommendation is open your mind and ask yourself what is the consequence if you don’t take some of the research seriously).

The benefits or otherwise of fluoride in our water and toothpaste has long been a contention of they said / we said and different research. 

It is widely reported how fluoride originated, the conspiracy theories talk about Hitler injecting fluoride to prisoners of war to keep them docile, this has been confirmed but it is what followed WWII that impacted my decision to stop all fluoride in my home.

“The ALCOA Company had an unlimited supply of toxic waste—a by-product of aluminum, AKA fluoride. At their lab, an ALCOA-sponsored biochemist did a test on rats that showed cavities were reduced with the fluoridated water and concluded that: “The case should be regarded as proved.” In this historic moment in 1939, the first public proposal that the US should fluoridate its water supplies wasn’t made by a doctor or a dentist, but an industry scientist working for a company that was also threatened by fluoride damage claims.”

More about the history and use of fluoride.  I read hours of documentation, this is one I tagged as a good read and summarised well much of the research I covered.

The Third Eye is how we help manage our voice that talks to us (one of the benefits) 

There is enough scientific evidence of humans having a third eye, the pineal gland.  Fluoride has been proven to calcify the pineal gland.  There are many many things we can do to activate and use our third eye, also known as the 7th Chakra and called a parietal eye.

It is also found in certain species of lizards, sharks, bony fish, salamanders and frogs. It typically does not see but is instead photoreceptive in nature.  In humans it is buried deep in the brain. It is especially important for hormone regulation in mammals and vertebrates.

Activation of the third eye is a step I use in transformation of you and your business.  It plays a crucial role in your health and wellbeing and your ability to manage your thoughts with a direct correlation to your moods and what actions you take for yourself.   It has been proven that children and adults with a dormant pineal gland are more likely to suffer depression, find it hard to consistently stick to actions that can help change their mindset, suffer from anxiety and many other ‘thinking’ challenges.

The question I pose to people is what comes first Action or Mindset?  Different actions in differing ways with differing mentors and people achieve a different mindset.  There are many tools and methods out there to help us – BUT if your pineal gland is not activated or at its optimum you have a tougher road ahead to consistently stick to actions you want for yourself.

A strong pineal gland will critically assist with managing your thoughts, managing your thoughts has a significant impact on having a healthy body, particularly if you believe in Quantum Leaping in respect of water taking on what it is surrounded by thoughts and sound.

Quantum Leaping in relation to water quality within our bodies is how we help be in the best possible position for preventative health issues

Now this is pushing the envelope for many mainstream people.  So, skip this section if the above third eye pineal gland was a push for you and go straight to acidic and alkaline water research.  If you are curious about emerging studies on Quantum Leaping relating to water leverage the research I have done.

Description One: “An advance or sudden change is a quantum leap. … The phrase comes from a scientific term — in physics, a quantum leap is the abrupt change of a particle from one state to another. The Latin root, quantum, means “how much.”

Description Two: “great improvement or important development in something”

Words have been found to affect water crystals. Japanese researcher and healer, Dr. Masaru Emoto, conducted experiments on water molecules. These experiments showed human thoughts and intentions can physically alter the molecular structure of water.Oct 12, 2017

When subject to positive emotions (and words that invoke positive feelings) water molecules change into beautifully shaped structures. However, when subject to negative emotions or words, the molecules morph into jarring, chaotic shapes. Jan 6, 2018

Water charged with “positive” words, in contrast, has a clear, snowflake structure, covered by beautiful patterns. Music, as well words, can also affect water structures. … create water spoils, such as trembling and vibration, whereas Mozart’s music creates smooth crystal-clear structures. Sep 18, 2015

Emoto claims that human speech or thoughts have dramatic effects on water. … Emoto claims that positive words and emotions, classical music and positive prayer directed at the water produce beautiful crystals, while negative words and emotions and crude music, such as heavy metal, produce ugly crystals.Feb 17, 2011

Typically, your brain is functioning on Beta waves frequencies (14–40 HZ; concentration & alertness) so it will take you some time to get to the frequency of 4- 8 HZ. You will have to surpass the alpha waves first (8–14 HZ; relaxed focus, light meditation).Jan 31, 2019

SO … there is a lot to take in!  I use a Synctuition program for meditation.  I will let you do the research on it.  I find it fantastic for me.

My summary of the above, if you take fluoride from your intake, activate your pineal gland (third eye), actively surround yourself with positive thought, people with less fear than the average, good sound frequency, taking actions to achieve a good mindset the water in your body will be of better QUALITY and you will have less side effects. – but wait there is more.. what if the quality of water you put into your body also accelerated this journey!?

Alkaline Water .. this covers health as well as a clean and green home. This is not something to learn overnight, but once learned will change your life

Tap water produces 7pH, mid-range in the acidic and alkaline water range.

One of the topics I talk about is a water machine (that has gold certificates for its authenticity and is 40+ years in production based in Japan).  It produces water from 2.5pH up to 11.5pH.

The “alkaline” in alkaline water refers to its pH level. The pH level is a number that measures how acidic or alkaline a substance is on a scale of 0 to 14. For example, something with a pH of 1 would be very acidic and something with a pH of 13 would be very alkaline

You may have heard various health claims about alkaline water. Some say it can help slow the aging process, regulate your body’s pH level, and prevent chronic diseases like cancer, some brain specialist advocate it helps Parkinsons, children behviour disorders and a range of health issues driven from the health of our organs and brain. But what exactly is alkaline water, and why all the hype?

I wish to be very clear, I am not saying alkaline water will FIX or CURE any health issue.  What I am advocating for is the right management of acidic and alkalinity in your body will help your body more ably do what it is programmed and built to do.  Defend and protect us from harm. 

Alkaline water has a higher pH level than regular drinking water. Because of this, some advocates of alkaline water believe it can neutralize the acid in your body.

Normal drinking water generally has a neutral pH of 7. Alkaline water typically has a pH of 8 or 9. However, pH alone is not enough to impart substantial alkalinity to water.

Alkaline water must also contain alkaline minerals and negative oxidation reduction potential (ORP). ORP is the ability of water to act as a pro- or antioxidant. The more negative the ORP value, the more antioxidizing it is.

Does it really work?

Alkaline water is somewhat controversial. Some health professionals say there is not enough research to support the many health claims made by users and sellers. Differences in research findings may be related to the types of alkaline water studies.

I am representing to you what I found after six months of research and 12 months of my own use and the use by my mother who is 84. 

According to the Mayo Clinic regular water is best for most people. They state that there is no scientific evidence that fully verifies the claims made by supporters of alkaline water.

We were also told for many years contraceptive had no side effects, that pesticides used on our fruit and vegetables have no impact on our digestion.  I am at the point where I want to own my own comfort, I wish to be better educated to make my own decisions for my health.  I do not want to be back at a doctors again and be told stomach cancer has returned.

However, there are studies that suggest alkaline water is helpful for many conditions.  There was enough research for me, particularly in relation to the effect of hydration and alkaline water on the brain.

For example, a 2012 studyTrusted Source found that drinking naturally carbonated artesian-well alkaline water with a pH of 8.8 may help deactivate pepsin, the main enzyme that causes acid reflux.

Another study suggested that drinking alkaline ionized water may have benefits for people with high blood pressurediabetes, and high cholesterol.

more recent study that included 100 people found a significant difference in whole blood viscosity after consuming high-pH water compared to regular water after a strenuous workout. Viscosity is the direct measurement of how efficiently blood flows through the vessels.

There are studies on benefits to professional athletes which I have included in a persona view in the below link

Those who consumed high-pH water reduced viscosity by 6.3 percent compared to 3.36 percent with standard purified drinking water. This means blood flowed more efficiently with alkaline water. This can increase oxygen delivery throughout out the body.

Many professional athletes such as Tiger Woods and many many others swear by good quality and management of alkaline water is a contributor to their edge.

There are many doctors who support alkaline water for many benefits.  I have collected those articles and are available on request.   These include:

  • anti-aging properties (via liquid antioxidants that absorb more quickly into the human body)
  • colon-cleansing properties
  • immune system support
  • hydration, skin health, and other detoxifying properties
  • weight loss
  • cancer resistance

They also argue that soft drinks, which are notoriously acidic, have incredibly positive ORPs leading to many health problems, while properly ionized and alkalinized waters have highly negative ORPs. Green tea is rich in antioxidants and has a slightly negative ORP.

Possible side effects and risks of alkaline water

Although alkaline drinking water is considered safe, it may produce negative side effects. Education is a key aspect of changing any element of your health.

It is proven that if humans are confused, they will walk away or not act.  I was VERY confused when I researched the benefits of adjusted water pH and its impact.  But for me the consequence of getting cancer back in my stomach outweighed my confusion and I kept researching.

What I do is ensure I drink 7pH an hour before and after food intake.  Then up my pH drinking to 9.5pH for the balance of the day, specifically at times of exercise and meditation.  I have also significantly reduced the quantity of food I eat.

I use a KETO test in my urine once a week to check my acidity and alkaline levels

Some examples of negative side effects include the lowering of natural stomach acidity, which helps kill bacteria and expel other undesirable pathogens from entering your bloodstream.

Additionally, an overall excess of alkalinity in the body may cause gastrointestinal issues and skin irritations.

Alkalosis can also cause a decrease in free calcium in the body, which can affect bone health. However, the most common cause of hypocalcemia isn’t from drinking alkaline water, but from having an underactive parathyroid gland.  I found much of the negative research I found focused on this bone health issue, but in many – most cases it was a minor risk or contributor and there were other things that had a greater impact.  I also found that good management of alkaline water assisted with an underactive parathyroid gland which in turn then would assist with good bone health.  There were many needles in the hay stack and long spaghetti strings I unraveled!

One thing I had to be cautious of was the number of negative articles about Alkaline Water to only find they had links or had alignment with alternate money income generating recommendations.  They were promoting their own interest’s vs true health benefits.

Natural or artificial?

Water that is naturally alkaline occurs when water passes over rocks — like springs — and picks up minerals, which increase its alkaline level.

The Japanese water product machine I purchased is made in Japan, 40+ years in production. The water passes over charged plates that are separated by an ion-permeable membrane. The electrostatic charge on the machine’s plates causes the minerals in tap water – calcium and magnesium – to be separated from the acidic carbonate that they are mixed within the water.

Many people who drink alkaline water buy alkaline water that is been through a chemical process called electrolysis.  The benefit of the machine I have also lowers pH to acidic water – the water range is 2.5 up to 11.5pH.

The water quality of the original source, before ionization, is crucial to ensuring contaminants are not present in the drinking water, the best result is a water filtration AND ionization.

Clean and Green Home

2.5pH is hospital grade disinfectant and 11.5pH is a cleaner that does everything from kitchen, ovens included, bathroom and all of home.  I am amazed at its benefits.  There is an e-book produced to cover the benefits and use.  Again .. I am amazed at the difference of sustaining my own home and my other who is 84 is a convert!

Beauty Water

6pH is a wonderful addition – replacement to my beauty routine as well as the health of my plants.  Again, I am amazed, and benefits are covered in this e-book. (go to website and find free giveaways) 

Where do you get it?

After my research I decided on Enagic as the company to purchase my machine from.  I love the guarantee of quality, I align to the ethics and values of the company based in Japan, it produces the full range of water that also covers disinfectant and cleaner in my home PLUS I’ve always had good skin, but maintaining that with all the changes that occur as a 50+ women was starting to concern me.

I just love the holistic aspects this one machine provides me.

There is lots of chatter online about the price of Enagic machines to other machines on the market.  Again, I did my research and happy to share it.  Bottom line for me, especially after years in the corporate world.  Enagic have priced their product for long term sustainability and keeping it out of the hands of what we would call mainstream corporations who would patent and alter its go to market proposition that the proceeds benefit a few vs many.

If you wish to book a call I can explain further how this works, but I am very impressed with the structure and business savvy of how this Japanese company has structured itself, its business model and sustainability throughout yesterday and the future.

You can also make your own at home. Even though lemon and lime juices are acidic, they contain minerals that can create alkaline by-products once digested and metabolized. Adding a squeeze of lemon or lime to a glass of water can make your water more alkaline as your body digests it. Adding pH drops or baking soda is another way to make water more alkaline.

We have heard for years the benefit of a lemon drink on rising in the morning – I did not realise the science behind it.

If water is properly filtered to remove contaminants, ionized and re-mineralized, or purchased from a quality source, there is no evidence to suggest a limitation on how much alkaline water can be consumed daily.

What would your current day self say to the younger version of you about money?

What would your current day self say to the younger version of you about money?

What would your current day self say to the younger version of you about money?

A large percentage of people do not have an emergency fund that covers 3 mths and many live pay cheque to pay cheque.

  • US statistics say 53% do not have emergency funds beyond 3 months and 49% live pay check to pay check, and that study was prior to COVID.

Pay cuts, losing jobs, closing businesses – the heart ache is real here in Australia & New Zealand.

I’ve re written this article many times fearful of rejection.  What can I contribute that would be of value to others, I am certainly no financial advisor.  I’m ‘a-typical’ of my peer group in that I have had my ups and downs financially and Im holding out ok .. but no shining star award to qualify for a voice relating to money.   But I kept waking up feeling my next blog needed to be about money and helping drive people to be curious to create options .. my superpower is helping to inspire people to be curious, to develop options and then put tangible actionable steps in place based on their story or circumstance – so here goes.

This blog is my current self talking to a younger version of me about money

Ferne, treat money as you would a best friend.  Keep them close, honour them, don’t discredit them behind their back, envisage and dream what choices you could make in life by having them more abundant day to day in your life. Do not put them down, do not blame them for all the wows in your world.  Treat money as if a close loved and cared for friend.

In 2012 Ferne you will have a closet full of awesome shoes purchased from all over the world, you will have accessories galore – you will have a reputation of giving giving giving.  You will have consistently traveled the world for a number of years with your job.  A few New York suits and lots of accessories will be your packing items.  You would have spent a significant amount of money on a gorgeous new home, you would have spent a significant amount of money on IVF treatments over 8 years.  You would have treated yourself and others to frequent overseas trips creating memories, you would have cared for family and taken loved ones into your home, you would be an exceptional carer for those treasured god children.  You would have dabbled in importing and selling furniture items but in truth kept half of them ‘cause you loved them’.  You would have a salary package that will be beyond what you had ever dreamed of – you would also be a workaholic.  You have spent the last handful of years working with an exceptional bunch of people leading a top tier global company.  There were so many lessons, so many quality people, you participated in the success, contributed to the success and were valued for the person that you are.

But a message to my younger self, in 2013 the dream you did not think would occur does, you give birth to a beautiful daughter, you will be 49 years of age .. but you will also be made redundant in the same year.  You will make a decision when you were fearful to sell your beautiful home (at a loss), you will loose confidence in your power of making good decisions because of fear.  It will take you a few years – 5 years in fact –  to rebuild that power and intention … but have confidence you will do it, you (we) are resilient and we do not stay down.  There will be another crises that occurs in 2020, but you would have put plans in place to ride that through.  There will be more crises that occur in the world, and likely more frequent … keep listening to your voice and treat money as a friend.

I’ve put some words together for you Ferne to help keep you focused with intentional actions relating to money; always be curious, always create options, never stop taking actions. 

Ferne, When you go to buy something, figure out quickly if it is a need or a want.  If it is a want, put that money aside into an emergency fund until you have at least 8 to 12 months of emergency funds available.   A crises will occur in 2020 and you will be afforded some relief through subsidies .. put as much of this aside as you can into emergency funds, don’t spend it on wants.  You will have a salary decrease, when you’re salary increases again .. put that same amount, or as much as you can into your emergency fund.

Write this down and put inside your wallet :

100$ a month put aside into an emergency fund from the age of 25, earning over its life 12% return will give you 1M at 65 years of age.

100$ a month in the same scenario but from 35 will provide you 300K. You have just cost yourself 700K as you may choose wants over needs.

 Be strong in working on your fears, challenges and blockages to be the best YOU in this life.  Learn to listen consistently to your own voice, what is the story you want to be told at your Eulogy or researched on google when you are no longer here.  What actions are you taking from today forward to make that a reality – particularly relating to money and the life of passion and intent you wish to lead.

Choose a few people who will inspire you relating to the money sector of your life.  Listen, observe, learn, change learned behaviours from your childhood about money.  Conduct exercises that break down those blockages ‘money does not grow on trees’, ‘you’ve worked hard today – go treat yourself, you deserve it’.  Choose one or two financial super heros – LEARN! 

Just because money is coming in and going out does not mean you are ok if you do not have 8 to 12 months emergency funds.  It just means you are surviving, confront yourself on choices you make and the why you make them.  Stand in your truth ; look yourself in the mirror and be truthful about the choices you made that got you here.  THEN let the past go and focus on your next chapter.

Ferne, the main obstacle to wealth is fear.  You will become a leader in transformation change and help people every day with putting plans in place to mitigate fear in businesses and achieve their tomorrow.   Apply that same method, that same logic and action these steps NOW:

Find the answer to these questions: What is your fear in relation to money?  Why don’t you get pleasure out of saving money .. why do you get more pleasure out of spending money ….  And if you do get pleasure out of saving money, what is that driver you can leverage.  Unless you know the answer to these question you cannot create actionable intentional action to alter.  Find the answers then;

Put a crises management plan in place! What mitigations do you put into place to mitigate this fear from being realised.  If the fear is realised and becomes a real live issue, what are the actionable steps you agree with yourself PRIOR to the fear / issue occurring that you will immediately put into place to deal with that.  Write it down, sign it, then file it.  Making a plan about actions to take if the fear is realised when you are confident – when you are in hour power is key.  We do not make good decisions for ourselves when we are in the powerless or fear character.

Ensure your back yard is in order, that you have a Will you revisit every 5 years, that you have a power of attorney for medical and financial decisions, you have a medical emergency plan written and understood by your nominated authorised person, if you have minors you nominate your wish for them .. or nominate a few you trust to have a conversation and make that determination.  DO THIS IMMEDIATELY to mitigate the increased risk of something occurring to you as we face some global disruptions in years to come.

Then turn your focus to mitigations for the fear not to be realised, turn up your curiosity, map out some options, create actionable – tangible steps. Spend more time thinking of options and actions and TAKING those actions than you think about your fear.

Ferne, do not dwell on shame relating to money topics or choices that have been made in the past.  Stand in the truth, why are you in the position you are in now .  You have been brought up in your early life of hearing “we deserve to be treated, we deserve that holiday, we deserve to have that new phone, we wish to provide for others what we did not have .. we put things before money, YOU are responsible to alter that thinking to money before things” 

Create a strong value system relating to money Ferne.  I know you believe in being valued for who you are over what you have, but make sure you take actions based on these values.    

The past is the past .. it is only valuable if you learn from it . Right here, right now is what matters. Visualise when money comes in you will put money into an emergency fund , there will be another crises, don’t know when or what, but there will be more over your life.  

Think about the life that is possible if you treat money as a friend. 

Be grateful that you have a wonderful mind and thought process that enables you to think of various ways or channels to create multiple streams of income from things you are passionate about.  Those memories you create with people from experiences you enable.. don’t ever stop doing that, but do it AFTER you have your emergency funds tucked away

Live below your means but within your needs.  Take these actions at least until you have 8 to 12 months emergency funds available.  Every time you go to buy something ask if this is a want or a need.  If it is a want .. walk away and put that money into your emergency fund

Do not complicate definition of a need .. a need is food, medicine, travel to work or job interviews, minimal clothing for your needs . A want is food at a restaurant, travel to visit friends, a fourth pair of shoes, the next version of i-phone

And Ferne, this one is a hard one for me to talk to as I know your future and you do not as yet.  My word of advice when it comes to romantic relationships and money.

Communication with your partner relating to money is critical especially when you come from different backgrounds, different experiences with money, different messages, different fears and blockages.  If you have a partner and you have one vision and treat money with the same value you have a formula for success.  If you do not your formula needs to be adjusted – amended or there will be challenges and the saying ” to death us to part, quickly alters to, to debt do we part’. If you have one vision and your partner has another vision you will be in  different vehicles, and that is ok until you hit a bumpy road or a crises and the vehicles end up going in different directions.

Get into the same vehicle with any future partner you have!  Know about financial behaviour before you get deeply involved, and be prepared to address head on any disconnect to make it work – BEFORE a crises occurs.  It is like a business continuity plan .. create a crises plan before a crises occurs.

In wrapping up Ferne, I ask you to please reflect on these statements

  • Get as much pleasure saving as you do spending
  • An emergency fund is a non negotiable, at least 8 to 12 months
  • Power attracts opportunity and money
  • Powerless repels opportunity and money
  • You are in the drivers seat of your life, what gear are you in, what road are you taking on your journey to success relating to money, who are in the passenger seats
  • Address your fears and challenges, get answers – turn up curiosity=options, then create actionable steps- and TAKE THEM
  • Communicate and get in the same vehicle, relative to money, with any future partner
  • Ensure your own back yard is in order relating to what occurs to money if you are compromised, and the less you have the more important this is
  • Be more to have more 
  • To be more you need to know more about how you deal to money

My NOW story! Ferne Eliz King in April 2020

My NOW story! Ferne Eliz King in April 2020

  In a consulting job where we defined the strategic direction and actions for a business  the marketing agency recommended to start the messaging from the future .. make that the starting point. It also reminded me of great advice from one of our worlds leading CMOs to write a newspaper article as if in the future.  Writing it today but putting yourself in the future looking back at the achievements and successes.

Im going to take their advice in this blog.

  My story starts at my eulogy.  I do an exercise when mentoring executives, getting them to write their eulogy.  I know it sounds morbid for some .. but it is SO inspiring.  Its like writing that future news article about your business – but it is about you.   If writing a eulogy is too confronting for you, write a google search response .. what would google have recorded about your life when someone searches in the future.

Questions I ask.  What is it you wish to be known for, what differences – influences in this world do you wish to make, what is your passion and mission.  What is the experience you would want people to have having known you, your profession and vocation.  What experience and memories do you wish to be remembered for as a parent, as a child as a sibling as a partner, as a colleague as a boss as a neighbour etc etc, what have you done to proactively sustain good health and what is it that you are good at. What is your stand out characteristic that you are proud of when you look in the mirror every day. Really stretching to think of this in a future timeframe.  I utilise an Ikigai Japanese method in this experience.

Quite a confronting task for some.

Then in true consulting style, what is the gap analysis between the desired future state and now.  Then what are the actions to take in what prioritised order to get us to the outcome we wish.  What are the external dependencies we need to rely on to achieve the outcome (typically to do with personal growth and mindfulness).  What signs to look for to adapt, stop, defer – re-prioritise our actions usually driven from environmental change impacts, like the one we are having now!

Very rarely should we alter our end goal of what we are wishing to achieve, but being astute enough to know when to change the actions, being adaptable, resilient and having a belief in one self is critical to know when to alter the actions.   The alternative is to keep following the planned actions but due to environment and circumstance those actions would no longer realise that outcome for you. 

For me I have been very clear on my end goal, my objective for the past 15 years. I know my eulogy, I know my google search response I wish to have appear.  I know the characteristics I wish to be remembered as having.  I like the person I see in the mirror each day.  I exercise every day in health, mindfullness and growth.  I OFTEN alter my actions, but rarely do I adjust my end goal – my ultimate passions in life.

I deliver transformation change, it is in my blood, my DNA to constantly questions are these the right actions to take based on the end result needed and the current environments issues and risks. 

A big component of my ‘what I love’ in my passion and mission is to help individuals to Love Life Love YOUR Life.

The attached video is 5 min of my now, what actions I started taking 12 – 18 months ago to realise my passions and how the journey may assist ONE person on their journey over the following 30 – 60 – 90 days.  Many of us dont have the luxury of 12 months to learn the lessons I have.

Be curious, accelerate your learning or options from others that have looked at alternate ways to earn income, many of you need to make a determination in the next 7, 30, 60 days. 

The call to action for you is a 30 minute chit chat with me being curious about learnings I’ve had in redirecting my activities, securing the outcomes I wish to have in my life.   It would assist you in choices and options in your next 30 – 60 – 90 days.   No gimmicks, no sales, no scam .. just a good hearted chat about your options. 

Why am I qualified to have that chat with you?  Because I know you, I know the professional world, I know you want to find solutions for a problem.  What I am offering is to help accelerate you looking at options with some lessons I have had in rethinking – re looking at what I do. 

What I do ? Management consultant specialising in strategic portfolio management.  The right investments at the right time aligned to a corporates future direction and priorities and delivered in the right way.  Which also complimented my journey of leading large complex transformation change programs all over the world with wonderful experiences and awesome people!  Some with significant challenges and at times failures, some with exceptional results.   There have been merger and acquisitions, down sizing, up sizing, right sizing.

I also earn passive income to boost my superannuation plans in two ways on line.  Ive made mistakes, I took some wrong advice, I corrected, I strengthened and now its good, I feel I have options, there is hope for continous income in the future.

Have a listen – have a chat.

5a.m. the hour when legends are either getting up or going to bed

5a.m. the hour when legends are either getting up or going to bed

5a.m. the hour when legends are either getting up or going to bed

He swears we will feel more energized and productive. He tells us that Mozart, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Ernest Hemingway made a habit of rising early.

He promises that if we wake up at 5 every morning and follow his 20/20/20 formula for what he calls a “Victory hour,” our life will change. Our creativity and or productivity is going to soar, our fitness will improve, and we will just generally feel better about ourselves.

But.. Can we do it? What is the reward? Will it stick or be a one week wonder?

Sharma, the famous Canadian personal success guru and author of many best-selling books including 1997’s The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari. Wrote The 5am Club.  Told in parable form, the story features four central characters: The Spellbinder, The Homeless Man/Billionaire, The Artist, and The Entrepreneur. Through the course of the book, the Artist and the Entrepreneur go through a complete life change due to the teachings of The Spellbinder and Billionaire characters. The main point of their lessons is, that the two should get up at 5 a.m. and structure their days according to Sharma’s formulas.

When the clock strikes 5am we are to begin our days with the 20/20/20 formula that is to change our lives.

Robin Sharma is the son of Indian and Kenyan immigrants to Canada. He says he came from humble beginnings, and the immigrant mindset that drives so many high-achievers took root in him from an early age. He graduated from law school and became a successful lawyer at a big firm in Toronto.

“But when I would wake up in the morning and look in the mirror, I didn’t like the person that was looking back at me,” says Sharma. “I was very empty. There was an angst.”

He turned to education, this time studying the lives of the great women and men of the world, looking to understand their tactics and methods to implement those practices in his life. Out of this transformation came his first book, 1994’s Megaliving.

Despite some difficulties as a first-time author, Sharma was able to sell enough copies of the book to begin his career as a speaker, author, and personal success guru. Out of that moderate success, Sharma started to dream bigger. His second book, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, caught fire and launched Sharma into global fame.

Suddenly, Sharma was a man in his early 30s speaking to audiences of thousands all over the world. His morning routine and his disciplined life that had been shaped in his 20s were vital to helping him avoid the pitfalls that so many people experience when fame and success come their way.

What will you do today to ensure your tomorrow is different than your yesterday?

So, do we just get up at 5am and get the housework done before the whole house awakes? Do we get on the computer and get on top of emails and our to do list for the day then sit with our cup of tea trying to figure out where to start?  Go to the fridge to eat something while I think about it (or that bottle of vodka!  If I’m feeling overwhelmed).  Is that how we get ahead and stay ahead?

Nope … that is NOT the answer.

Sharma lays out a detailed routine in the book and claims it’s what has helped billionaires, superstar athletes, and others with whom he’s worked through the years.

Action Plan Here’s how the 20/20/20 formula is broken down:

The first 20 minutes of your day are for sweaty exercise. Sharma’s “Billionaire” character gets deep into the science of why sweating and getting your heart rate up early in the morning are so good for you. In summary, you’ll increase your feel-good dopamine and serotonin levels and kickstart your metabolism while lowering your levels of cortisol, essentially a stress hormone.  For me, Ferne Eliz King I get into my infra-red sauna I have in my bathroom (I will post the benefits of infra-red saunas on another day) and mix it up between this and taking the dogs for a brisk walk.

The next 20 minutes should be quieter, dedicated to journaling, meditating, planning, reflecting and contemplating. This should get your mind, heart and soul in the right place for a day that promises to throw all kinds of difficulty and stress your way. Taking this time to be quiet and still will increase your gratitude and your happiness.  For me, Ferne Eliz King I use an application for mediation called Synctuition.  20 mins is equivalent to 2 hours ‘old school’ meditation.   I also have beautiful journals / books to write thoughts down.   I have one for inspirational ideas, goals, plans.  I have one for my feelings / thoughts and what I am grateful for and the reasons why. In my ideas, goals and plan book I also write down the emotion I will feel when those things come to fruition, what I will feel, whom I will tell, what emotion they will have.  I put myself into that future moment in time.

While the exercise piece is a pretty specific and, in Sharma’s terms, “non-negotiable,” piece of the 5 a.m. puzzle, the reflection portion allows more creativity for you to do what is most comfortable for you. But one part that Sharma insists should be included in your second 20 minutes is journaling. Writing down your goals, plans, commitments, and the things you are grateful for will shape your day more positively.

The final 20 minutes allow for even more customisation. The “Grow” period is left for you to learn whatever it is you feel like learning.  So, if you want to listen to a podcast about successful entrepreneurs, or read a great book, or work on a language you want to learn, all of that is in play in these 20 minutes. The goal is to stimulate your brain and improve your intellectual capabilities.  For me, Ferne Eliz King on the last Sunday of each month I spend a bit of time making a list of things I wish to read, listen or view in the next month and I reward myself when I have achieved my list.  I purchased some really good Bose earphones so I can listen to material while I am going about my day – not wasting a minute.

How consistent can one be?

Have you done that analysis that advises what character you are as to what times of day it suits best for you to work / sleep… it’s very cool..

For every Hemingway the book uses as an example of an early riser, there is of course a Winston Churchill, one of the most prolific writers and human beings ever, who would write until 2 or 3 a.m. and stay in bed until the late morning. Surely there are those who are built for the 5 a.m. club, and there are those who are more suited for the night club.

For me, Ferne Eliz King, I used to be a night owl, I would stay up to the wee hours of the morning working on spreadsheets, client reports, analysis, leadership – sleep for 3 to 5 hours and then do it all over again.  OR I would be out partying and networking until the wee hours climbing into bed at 5am.  Every 6th to 8th day I would have a good long sleep.  THOSE DAYS ARE GONE. 

I now have a 6 year old ad I’m in mid 50’s!!!  I have my 84 year old mum living with us, independently in our back yard, but still an extended household.  I’m going through a separation from a 15 year relationship.  I don’t function the way I used to.  

I need a refreshed way to approach my day!  And the added stress and strain of this current Coronavirus outbreak .. mmmm .. let’s not digress to another topic.

Robin Sharma himself says..

“I slip all the time. I think most people do. Each day is simply about fighting the disruptive currents and getting back on track.”

So, what does this look like in my house?  I use the old way of waking myself up.  My dad told me many moons ago (an outdoor man and never traveled with an alarm clock – something extra and useless to carry he would say).  Bang your head on the pillow for the time of day you wish to wake up.  I have used it when I cannot rely on my phone and it works.. So, whether you head bang or use an alarm clock, I will leave to you.

For me, I wake often with my 6 year old entwined over, on, under, around me.  It takes me a few minutes to untangle myself.  I love that little arm across my neck!

I sneak out of the bedroom, I turn on the infrared sauna (I’m still trying to figure out the timer!!) – or I put on my runners and grab the dogs and go out into the dark morning.  They are excited to get the first fresh smells of the day and chase the kangaroos and every now and then chase the sound of the deer that come to eat our grass.

After the sauna or workout / walk.  I get my special magic water (I drink Kangen water) and set myself up in my special beautiful space in my ‘ladies lounge’.  I meditate, journal and reflect.  I often extend this to 40 minutes if I have not meditated the night before.  I try and have the habit of meditating before I go to sleep – I find I have a better quality and quantity of sleep when I do this.

I then spend the final 20 minutes of my learning time multi tasking.  I will either read, sitting in my space.  Or listen or view something online.  If it is the latter, I will quite often do this while multi tasking doing something else as well.   A definite focus on LEARNING and EXPANDING my knowledge or thinking.  I have my special LEARNING journal that I carry around with me during this step.

Ferne Eliz King journals:

  • inspiration, goals, actions, new ideas, strengthening current ideas
  • feeling, thoughts, gratitude
  • learning, expanding my knowledge

It’s now 6am or 6.20am …

Now it’s shower, personal care and looking myself in the mirror and liking who is looking back at me. I feel inspired, energised and clear to start my day ahead.

My productivity in my day has expanded.  I have wobbly days for sure, but they don’t last long, I’m able to kick myself back into gear quite easily without a lot of effort.

And to tell you the truth, there are a few mornings a week I start this routine at 4am or 4.30am depending on my evening prior.  I try to be in bed by 9pm, meditate and asleep by 10pm at latest.  Some nights I am in bed at 8.30pm.

I try to plan my meals a week in advance, I try to cook and prepare on a weekend so that I am not at 3pm starting to stress about the evening meal.  I’m fortunate in that my ‘ex’ partner cooks much of the time during the week.  With the current situation we still share the same property and the care of our daughter and treat each other kindly which is GREAT. I’m grateful for that.

One of the impacts I found is not checking my phone or computer until AFTER I have got myself ready for the day.  Prior to this I would often be still sitting in my PJ’s at midday as I had got ‘caught’ in the virtual working environment and getting into my work before I was personally ready to do so.

There are days when I am not consistent at this routine.  There has been a few days where I wake up and go.. ‘oh this is too wonderful to get out of’ (the little arms wrapped around me and the comfort of my bed).  I do a quick equation of the impact of staying in bed and then make a decision.  If I decide to stay in bed, I do not beat myself up.  But I only allow that to occur once or twice a week.

Robin Sharma advised a journalist. “I slip all the time. I think most people do,” says Sharma. “One time the pilot on a little plane let me fly a little bit, and as I was holding the yoke, I noticed the plane was constantly being pushed off course by the winds. My goal was to make sure that we stayed on course. That’s what happens every single day to every single one of us. There are temptations and distractions that get us off our habits and our priorities. Each day is simply about fighting the disruptive currents and getting back on track.”

Knowing that many entrepreneurs slip, makes it easier to put boundaries and limits to not ‘being perfect’ at this plan. 

I do feel the difference, I feel I can manage my day and week in a better way than I did before.  I feel the difference which is all I needed as evidence of the benefit to continue with striving for a 5am start to my day.

What will you do to ensure you tomorrow is not the same as yesterday? Will you start that thing today?
