Are you grateful and joyful, ready for a nice rest and some dedicated family time over the holiday?
I have been thinking deeply about that old saying “You reap what you sow.” Of course it refers to the metaphor of farming; planting or sowing seeds to reap the harvest the next season.
As I reflected on this year I really realised this. I’m really happy with my year because I consciously created it, I sowed the seeds of focus, hard work, exercise, eating well, regular rest, family time, all year long and now I am reaping the benefits. I am so grateful for the joy and benefits I am experiencing now. And I had an epiphany because I almost didn’t mention that bit in this post, sometimes I feel like I’m lucky to live this life, but I realise now that I am not lucky. I created this “luck” I sowed it. While I was telling myself that I’m lucky or blessed, I was discounting my own actions that created my experiences.
So often when we experience goodness in our lives, we don’t fully acknowledge it, honour it and accept it in with gratitude. Charging on to the next task or goal without fully celebrating the achievement of the last.
Or when we experience challenges, we blame, judge and excuse. Creating drama and gossiping, fuelling negative energy and draining our own.
When we do either of these things we fail to find the gold in EVERY situation. We fail to fully experience the joy of our wins, and we fail to learn, grow from and overcome our challenges.
Each and every experience you reap in your life is something you have created through your actions in the past. The seeds of actions, thoughts and being-ness that you planted last year, least month, last week (even in previous lifetimes!) are what will come back to you in your life. If you sow focussed action, gratitude, compassion for self- and others, honouring your body and health, you will reap health, happiness, joy, gratitude.
If you sow gossip, drama, overeating, disorganisation, quick-fixes, avoidance and “poor-me thinking”, you will create Depression, anxiety, stress and disease.
When you realise that every event in your life, is not just some random assortment of events, or things happening TO you, but instead a flow of energy FROM you out into the world and back again, you honour and recognise your power to CREATE your life.
You have the power all the time. The power to create a mind-glowingly awesome experience of life, or a ho-hum, drama-filled experience of victimhood.
Honour your wins, acknowledge the work that it took to get there, give yourself a pat on the back, smile and do a happy dance.
And reflect on your tough times, bravely face the knowledge that you were a part of creating the challenges that you experienced, and decide what behaviour you would like to continue to sow into the world and which ones are best left as lessons in the past.
As you reflect, remember self-compassion nobody is a saint or perfect, everybody has their fair share of virtues and vices, challenges and support. It’s all masterfully designed to encourage your growth through contrasting experiences.
Here’s to you, all of your days of 2013, the tough ones and the awesome ones, and to an amazing and growth-filled 2014…
“Having ongoing training is essential for our team and our business. It’s important to look after the people that look after others. Kylie has the experience, professionalism and knowledge to engage with our team and help them understand about human behaviour and why people do what they do. In the wellness and health industry it’s a different sales and service delivery and it’s imperative to keep on top of these understandings to perform at our best to help others. We couldn’t recommend Kylie high enough.”
“I have worked with Kylie over many years. She has helped me as a Business Mindset Coach, as a motivational speaker for my gym clients at both Vision Personal Training & now at Flow Athletic. I bring her in to train my Personal Training teams in mindset, communication and how to coach our clients better and excel in our own personal mastery as fitness leaders. At my recent Fitness Business event, my gym owner colleagues were blown away by her talk, saying she is the best speaker they have ever seen. After every event we always get rave reviews about her talks and training. I highly recommend Kylie’s work as a coach & speaker.”
“I finished the Spiritual Awakening Course yesterday and I found it truly amazing. An incredible next step after our coach training. I feel so much more enlightened and “opened-up”. It has really opened my eyes to the power of the universe and the energy flowing in each of us. I loved it – thank you.
I am feeling so lucky at the moment. So many things are just falling into my lap. I visualise it and set my intention to manifest it and it comes. Things such as getting more clients, needing help to put my business online, not knowing how to get known in my local community etc. Courses / insights / clients have just fallen into my lap at the right time.”
Of course I am still learning and growing, but the course has really helped. Thank you”
“Before I signed up with Kylie I had a busy PT business… I was exhausted and on the brink of burnout and no matter how hard I tried, I had reached a ceiling in my income that I just couldn’t break through. After completing my NLP Coaching certification, I found my true voice and the energy of my business has been completely transformed. I’ve created an online program, up-levelled my entire business and totally smashed my previous income goals. I make decisions more confidently and I can help my clients create change in their life even faster. On a personal level, NLP gave me the inner strength to leave a toxic situation and rebuild myself which lead to me discovering the love of my life! Today I am living the life that I’ve always wanted – but just hadn’t been able to put into words. I have never been this happy or this powerful. If you want to manifest the life of your dreams I would not hesitate to reach out for help from Kylie.”
I signed up with Kylie because I knew that to have a bigger effect as a PT I needed to improve my understanding of how the mind works. Through NLP Coach training I now have great coaching techniques that break through all sorts of negative behaviour patterns. I’ve noticed big improvements in all areas of my life including my own personal finances and my client retention. This has allowed me new freedom to work on scaling my business and helping even more people with less one on one time from myself. The coach training has given me the ability to fully unlock the power of your mindset and those that don’t have this skill are only tapping into a small amount of their potential.
This morning I had a kick-ass coaching session with Kylie Ryan. We’ve been working together for a couple of months, and she’s the perfect person to help me integrate the rapid transformations I go through regularly. I’d been getting this vision of my fully mature creative and entrepreneurial self. His discipline, commitment, and command of wealth was 10x what mine is now, but it wasn’t really about money for him. Our coaching sessions usually roll with me saying, “Kylie, I want to be, do, and have EVERYTHING” and Kylie helping me find the archetypes and parts that aren’t integrated and bringing them together. MAGICK HAPPENS EVERY TIME.
