May 14: Results Don’t Lie

Take an honest look at yourself.  Are you where you want to be in your life?  Do you have what you want?  Do you live where you want to?  Do you make the money you desire to make?  Are you the kind of person you imagined yourself to be three years ago?  Results don’t lie.  All we have and all we are as humans are the direct results of the choices we have made.  If we want different results, all we need to do is CONSISTENTLY take different actions and make different choices.  The capability of doing this comes from what we believe about ourselves, and how we think and feel.

This is a hard truth that not many people like to hear or face.  It is sometimes difficult to accept full responsibility for all of the results of our own life, especially when things aren’t going well.  When we do, however, we begin the process of building credibility with ourselves and others.  Personal accountability results in Self Awareness and EMPOWERMENT.  The more we do about it, the more our self-confidence grows.  People begin to respect and trust us more, and we also tend to respect ourselves more, and we learn to trust our own judgement.  These are things that are earned with time, consistent efforts, and practiced discipline.

Regression and Contraction = Regret

Progress and Expansion = Happiness

Each moment of every day, we are either going one way or the other.  Our trajectory is ENTIRELY up to US.

To identify as a LEARNER, to adopt new practices, habits, beliefs, and perspectives, and then to implement and integrate them CONSISTENTLY is to constantly upgrade, optimize, and change our results.  THIS IS MEANT TO BE A LIFE-LONG PROCESS.  We are here to experience and learn all we possibly can.

To have an education and to know things is USELESS, unless we take actions relevant to the knowledge acquired that produces the results that were the entire reason for acquiring the education and knowledge in the first place.


EFFORT is what creates results, and WE are 100% responsible for our efforts.

The shift of change in our lives starts small.  It can literally start with simply thinking different thoughts.

What are the exact results that YOU want for YOURSELF?  Where do you want to be in a year?  In ten years?  What are the exact results you desire?  It is okay to dream incredibly big.  It is important to have a detailed vision of everything we want to create for ourselves and the people we love.

Christina Archer shared this on her Instagram feed:

We can reverse engineer ANY success, break it down into daily tasks, and accomplish ANYTHING we choose.


Now it is time to prove it.  What small, incremental, daily, consistent changes can you make to get the results you want in the next three years?  Now is the time to decide what you will do consistently, every single day, in order to make it happen.

Every action we take is the child of a thought.  Every action we take creates the reality we live; therefore, ALL we are in human form, all we have, all we create, and how we live life, is the product of what we think and how we feel about what we think.  WE CHOOSE our thoughts.  WE choose our feeling states.  WE CREATE AND PROJECT our personal realities.

How we start our day, including the methods we use and the level at which we prime ourselves to show up, begin in the very first moments of the day, creates momentum, and fashions a blueprint of feeling power, which will be used the entire rest of the day.

Today, if I haven’t already, I will make a checklist of smaller, easy things I can commit to on a daily basis.  I will remember it is important to start small and keep things simple and easy, adding one thing at a time until it is a habit, and gain momentum and confidence as I go along.
