A Powerful Secret 2

I’m life coach and success catalyst Peter Winslow. In theprevious post I shared a powerful secret that can lead you to achieve your goals much more quickly and effortlessly. The secret: align your goals with your intentions.
Here are three coaching tips on how to do so:
1. Does your goal feel right to you? If it feels like something you SHOULD want rather than what in your heart of hearts you really do want, it's the wrong goal for you.
For example, I've coached many clients who wanted to leave the corporate arena because it no longer felt right for them. That's because their values and intentions were no longer aligned with their corporate goals and what it would take to achieve them.
2. Make your goal less about acquiring possessions and more about helping others. It is not necessarily wrong or greedy to be driven by personal gain. If one of your intentions is to be wealthy, you will find your goals for prosperity perfectly aligned with your intentions.
For many, money or wealth is not a strong motivator, which simply means their intentions do not reflect money as a goal. However, there are many ways to create prosperity, and the best ways happen when you focus on increasing your service to others rather than fixating on how much money you collect from them.
3.  Success-oriented people use intention to create the lives they desire, and so can you. How? Learn to create the authentic feeling of already having what you want, and then prefer more of what you already have. Start small and watch what happens over time.
With the alignment of your goals and intentions, you have a powerful formula for creating the life you desire—and you are well on your way to living it.

A Powerful Secret

I’m life coach and success catalyst Peter Winslow here to share a powerful secret with you to help you achieve your goals more quickly and effortlessly. The secret: align your goals with your intentions.
Many of my life coaching clients will ask, “What is the difference between a goal and an intention?” 
Answer: an intention is an inner state of being identified by the “feelings” that drive us. Feelings are the way we "tune in" to the world.
Intentions identify how we live—be it with happiness, courage, loyalty, joy, compassion or whatever personal values are most important to us. Our intentions are internal motivators, the inner guideposts and ideals we feel good about and naturally follow.
Goals are a different thing all together. They are the specific and measurable objectives we consciously choose to direct our lives toward.
You birth a magical combination when aligning your goals with your intentions. Goals set by intentions are practically unstoppable, and there is no need for pushing, driving, or forcing yourself to achieve your goal because it feels completely natural to you.
When you think of a goal, you think of what is going to be achieved down the road and what actions you must take to get there.  A more effective approach is to "feel" your way to success, which occurs when you align your goals with your intentions. Your goal feels like it is already a part of you; you feel what it is like to already have it. That’s the “electromagnetism” that brings your goal to you.
Now your intention is present in every action step you take.  As you align your feelings and intentions with your goals, they are much more quickly fulfilled.

Substance and Fortitude

I’m life coach and success catalyst Peter Winslow. Today I have some compelling questions for you and you’ll want to consider them carefully.
First, are you a person of substance and fortitude?
Think on this for a moment. Set aside the trappings of ego, the part of you that tries to control what you believe. Really and deeply consider what I'm asking you here: how able are you to live a life of meaning while overcoming that which no longer serves you?
Next question: if you found a way to address every challenge in your life, a way that could provide stability and acceptance through every obstacle, would you use it? Of course you would.
What if every challenging situation you face—be it financial, health related, relationship, personal—could be resolved with a single asset? How much energy could you recover and redirect toward acquiring that which you really desire?
Such an asset exists, and the good news is—you will soon own it free and clear. It is called confidence.
Confidence is the key to undo the fear and resistance that have long stood between you and your dream. When this key is fully integrated and applied, your “problems” become little more than steps to ultimate power through personal growth.
The challenges that had seemed so terrifying are then recognized as the experiences you needed to identify and hone your character. Your job is to be confident, accept what your challenges offer, and calmly observe as they work their magic and then like old skin, organically fall away.

Carpe Diem

I’m life coach and success catalyst Peter Winslow. Today where I live we had an incredibly lovely morning, and I was certain to make the opportunity to get out and enjoy it.
Notice I did not say “take” the opportunity; I said “make” the opportunity. Opportunities are often a matter of our own making, and we who live useful lives seize opportunity as we please. We realize that opportunities abound at all times; the question comes down to when to seize and when to pass.
For example, we're frequently given the opportunity to share our own unique gifts and talents with others, and many times we choose to pass. Too often this is simply because we doubt ourselves or our abilities.
Your personal gifts are an intrinsic part of who you are and when you share them with others, you touch their lives in a meaningful way. This means that every gift you possess has the potential to bestow opportunity on someone else.
To share your gifts with others is to demonstrate an understanding of the self. Are you blessed with the talent to awaken beautiful emotions in others? Do your aptitudes reveal more practical advantages? Your natural ability to listen, to cook, to crack people up, to organize, garden, or think outside the box can greatly empower the people around you.
Our inner gifts are a means through which we can make the world a better place. It’s as simple as this: by doing what we love to do, we provide useful opportunities to others.

The Real You

Hello, I’m life coach and communications expert Peter Winslow. I have a question for you, and I’d like you to pay attention to your own response. Here goes: When people watch closely and observe how you interact with them, do they ever see the real you?
We may see your facial expressions, the way you address and avail yourself to people, even your body language—but what's going on at a deeper level? What are you communicating to us with your actual presence?
Are we indeed more than our bodies, thoughts, and material experiences would lead us to believe? Do we also have an invisible dimension that broadcasts our intentions to the world?
We may not be consciously aware of it, but in the midst of body and mind is the very essence of that which comprises the wholeness of being, an aspect that spiritual masters often refer to as the “true self.” Every time we interact with others in a tangible way, they say, on deeper levels of being an invisible exchange of tacit communication is taking place.
Are you aware of what you unconsciously communicate to the world? Whether you know it or not, others feel you and there's just no way to fake it. That's a good thing, as we now appear to be moving through an era where the old manipulative practices and concocted illusions just won't fly anymore. The time has come to reassess our intentions, adopt new practices and raise awareness of our authentic selves.

Luck of the Draw?

Hello I’m Peter Winslow, a life coach in private practice. In my practice as a life coach I often encounter people eager to maintain that “luck” is the most powerful indicator for personal outcomes regarding an individual’s health and wellness.
It’s all due, they say, to the environment into which we’re born into. It’s the luck of winning or losing the genetic lottery; the fortune of whom we meet and who comes into our lives on a personal level; the grace of which tax bracket we fall into; on and on it goes.
Still others will tell me there's no such thing as luck—yet they’ll agree it sure feels like an apt descriptor of the conditions and situations they find themselves in.
As for outcomes, it is readily apparent that people look to the future from the perspective of their previous experiences and current circumstances. When being unhappy, the future is dim and `challenging; when joyous and elated, triumph is all but carved in stone.
The difference is found in our own personal biases which determine how we feel about whatever actually occurs. Knowing this, it becomes obvious that we tend to attract what we expect and therefore focus on. The upshot here? The days to come will be great for those who create greatness within themselves.
As such, nothing happens to you, until it happens through you. You are the filter through which your current experiences pass from perception into reality. The wise have often written that we always stand at a fork in the road; we choose our path and can only experience the result of that choice.
Which path will you choose?
