Pretty darn good friggin question –huh???

Now I know I am dating myself just a bit with the Robert Redford one—but I still think he is VERY hot—and Kevin Costner with all that boyish charm—-YIKES——Okeedokie—I will come back to earth and to the point at hand—-

We all have heard it said so many times that ‘Thoughts become things’.

Is it really true? Do all our dominant thoughts actually really materialize? Wellllllll of course not, or all of us would be living our fantasies and giving up the day job, to live on a vineyard in Italy—or on our yacht, or with Robert Redford—or the hot young flavor of the month.

The whole ‘thoughts become things’…thing… has been repeated so often that it’s sort of a cliché now. But what does it really mean and, more importantly, is it true?

Well, many people will tell you that it translates very literally. Every thought you ever had, are currently having or ever will have is alive and well  somewhere in the Universe just waiting to interact with something else, take solid form and manifest into our lives as a physical thing.


Well, honestly –given that no one can either prove or disprove it by any means that scientists agree on being accurate, it’s a bit of a moot point. That said, we do know from physics that energy is neither created nor destroyed, it merely changes form. That is a scientifically proven point!

Hmmm—so from this one perspective alone then a thought IS already a thing…..

But—- can that thought energy be manipulated and used to bring what’s in your mind to life?

HOLY MOLY—-That is the real question– isn’t it?

Well, you only need to look around you for your answer!

Every single piece of clothing you’re wearing right now, every piece of jewelry, the house you’re standing in, the car in your driveway, all of it, every last thing started out as a thought in someone’s head yet now as you glance around you it’s a real thing in real life.

These thoughts have already become things, right?

But the thoughts become things crowd aren’t really using the statement in this way are they? They’re saying that any thought held for long enough in your mind must, by law, become that thing in reality.

“Think enough about earning a million dollars and it’s yours”.

That’s what we tend to hear…

It is true???—— trust me—there is more to it than this.

If it were as simple as we’ve been told—- then 16 year old boys would be the happiest people on earth.

You’re gonna love this—

Ok—Just ask your average hot-blooded 16 year old boy what they’re thinking about and if they’re honest enough to answer they’ll tell you that they’re thinking of— girls, girls, girls.

Doesn’t matter where they are, what they’re doing or who they’re with, they’ve got girls on their mind in some way, shape or form. Anybody who’s been around 16 year old boys—knows that to be true!

Now—using the law of –“thoughts becoming things” — the likelihood of this young boy achieving his goal of manifesting at least one girl into his room is pretty high.

After all, he’s thinking about them all the time, he’s certainly desirous of having his girl–ooops— I mean goal—- come to life and his thoughts are so consistent and intense that he should practically be able to materialize a girl in front of him right now….just like a genie!

Yet that doesn’t quite happen does it?

Not for this teenage boy, not for the house you want or the car, the relationship  or the money either.

Here’s why.

Thoughts DON’T become things.

Thoughts CAN become things.

Are you just a bit confused?

Don’t be– it’s pretty simple to understand.

It means this; just because you think about a thing, it doesn’t mean it will appear in your life. You think thousands of thoughts a day yet you don’t see them all magically appear around you– do you? In fact, most of the things you think about don’t show up in your life at all.

But—- they could.

Ok—here we go—are you ready for the answer????

If you had the EMOTION and then took the ACTION required to turn a thought into a thing you could take any thought and bring it to life.

The best way to understand what I’m talking about is this.

Just because you bought all the ingredients for a chocolate cake, doesn’t mean you’ll be eating cake for dessert tonight does it?

There are things you have to do to take the yummy pile of ingredients on your kitchen counter to turn them into a scrumptious dessert or they’ll simply remain ingredients won’t they?

You have to weigh, measure, mix and cook them in just a certain way before they make the transformation from ingredients to the end result of your intention—- a deeeeelicious chocolate cake don’t you?

It doesn’t matter how much you think of the cake, how positive you are, how good you feel or anything else you may have read about bending the Universe to your will, the truth is, if you want to be eating cake after dinner tonight, you have to DO something to those ingredients.

Thinking alone just won’t cut it.

So back to — turning your thoughts into things.

The great news is that it’s a pretty friggin simple process to make the transformation .

It looks like this:

Thoughts ==>Feelings ==> Emotions ==> Actions ==> Results (Things)

Let me explain it a little more. This is six-year old simple—and I like simple.

Thoughts when held long enough create feelings of some kind.

Feelings held long enough become emotions.

Emotions when intensified enough drive us to take certain actions.

Actions create reactions or, what we would call results or ‘things’.


Nothing too mind-shattering there. Hardly rocket science is it?

Yet —do NOT let the simplicity of this success ‘recipe’ fool you.

It is the most powerful thing you’ll ever learn in your lifetime. It’ll bring you anything you want!

Here’s how.

1. Think about the thing you desire –and BE SPECIFIC.  Remind yourself about how serious you are about having it come to life by writing it down on a card or piece of paper, carrying that card with you everywhere you go.

2. Strengthen those thoughts by paying attention to how you feel about the goals. Make yourself positive, optimistic and truly excited by getting it. If you do not feel good about the goal—then it is the wrong goal!! This is a major point to pay attention to!

*** Remind yourself as often as possible that it’s not a matter of IF you will achieve your goal or not, but WHEN.

3. Strengthen your feeling about the goal by becoming truly passionate about having it come true in your life. Add as much emotion to the thoughts as you possibly can by listening to uplifting music, dancing, laughing and engaging in other positive experiences while thinking about it. Take NO MORE than 5 minutes a day—to visualize your goal—and see yourself IN the picture—and then ADD the feelings…lots of feelings…..and remember it needs to feel really really good—I mean luscious, yummy good—the kind of feelings that automatically bring a smile to your face.

4. Use the feelings and passion for your specific goal to motivate you into taking at least one small action toward it every day without fail. Come on now—one small action—towards that which you so deeply desire—is way not too much to ask!

It doesn’t get any simpler than that, does it?

Now here’ s the thing— you could just jump straight into the final step of taking action, like a lot of people do, but you really gotta —I mean really gotta—have the emotion and feeling to fuel you to keep moving forward…….consistently.

So—how about some chocolate cake tonight?????

Oh yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Five quickie tips to motivation!

Motivation—-YES!! You gotta have it—and it is an essential key to success.

Do you know that research actually shows that motivation is the key behind the expert minds? Are you ready for some tips so you too can join in with those expert minds?

Before we jump in—let’s talk reality. It’s not easy to be motivated, let alone be motivated for the whole day. There are times when challenges and problems happen and make us feel sort of crappy and definitely not so motivated. It could just actually be one of those days that we are just not at our tip top energy level. It happens because life happens.

The good news is that are some simple things you can do to keep that motivation turned up and be motivated and energized throughout the day ! HOOORAY! Here is how:

1. Rise early–or earlier!
I don’t know about you, but for me, rising early is not always easy – yet there is a kind of magic….when I do it! It makes me feel more enthusiastic and energized throughout the day. Maybe it’s because by rising early I can start the day fresh without having to rush on everything. It really helps me to have more time to be prepared mentally and physically to jump into the day. Instead of hitting the snooze button it will be as if you are hitting the motivation button!

2. Pick a “quote of the day”
Pick a favorite quote in the morning and keep it in mind throughout the day. Of course, the quote should be something that motivates and inspires you. Sign up for one of those quotes of the day e-mails and refer to it throughout your day. It will give you that boost. There are a lot of them out there! One of my favorites is from TUT—“Notes from the Universe” They are fun, playful, very powerful and very motivating!

3. Find the positive side of everything
One main cause for losing motivation is thinking negatively about the events which are happening to us. Every time you think negatively about something, you actually lose a part of your energy. YIKES!! It is as if you are choosing to deliberately send your energy to that negative thing. OH BOY! Do that for any part of day and you will feel very exhausted. So choose to find the positive side of everything. See that glass as half full. Remember that everything happens for a reason. That reason just may be to push you to look at the positive side and flex those muscles of freedom of choice.

4. Focus on giving
It is in giving that we receive. Contributing to others is always motivating. It works for me. Whenever I am feeling a little less than what I want to feel or just a tad bit down—I give something to someone. A greeting, a dollar, a hug, a smile, a phone call to see how they are—it gets me out of me. It helps me to immediately shift the focus. Also, there is something about giving that gives you extra happiness.IT TRULY DOES! Brighten someone else’s life today and I guarantee you your life will also be brightened.

5. Decide to be a winner
Whether you think you can or you think you can’t you are right! It is your decision that makes the difference. This simple, yet utterly powerful singular thing can change your entire life! So decide to be a winner. See everything as a win. Heck- it is getting you closer to the next win! Who can resist you then?

Have a marvelously motivating day!
Gail 🙂

Have you TRIED to do something lately?


How often do you use the word “try”? If you are like most of us —you use it often. It is very often the default response when we are not quite sure whether we really want to do something. It can also come about when we have some doubt as to whether it will work. “Try” may feel safe to us.

Basically by “trying”—we release our responsibility. Oh boy—the bottom line is that this will not get us what we so desire in our lives. It will get us just exactly what we are stating. It will get us a whole lot of trying. It will not get the results. Sometimes we can get quite elegant in our trying. The truth is –it is still just trying.

Remember your words are powerful. Your words send a direct message to you unconscious mind. Your unconscious mind is the Captain of your ship. The Captain wild follow your directions. It does not judge what you tell it, it only follows your commands, not some of them, ALL of them! WHOA! Think about that. I know you know what that means!

Okay—lets have some fun right now! I want you all right now to TRY to read whit I am writing. I want you to try really heard to read these next words—Ok—here it is—the words are -ACTION IS THE KEY.. Did you try really hard, I mean extra hard to read that word? Come on– I am serious about this. If any of you actually read those four words, then BRAVO—you will not get the trying award for today. If any of you actually di not read all four of those words, then I applaud you for being successful in the trying department. The thing is that now you do not know the secret to success, because you were so busy trying!

Our faithful Star Wars friend Yoda says: “Do or do not, there is no try”.
Simple, straightforward and powerful.

I beckon you to take notice of the use of the word “try” in your daily life. Have some fun with it—no judgment. Just notice.

Hooray for you—just by dong that you are already in action mode!

Cheers for now—I am off into action!
