The Goal Isn’t Big Enough (WT674)


WT 674 The Goal is not big enough

Ross and I have been thinking about and discussing our goals since we completed The Silva Method Mind Control course a few weeks ago.

We’ve been keen to implement our new tools to create and manifest what we want.

Something I discovered as I was working on my goals was that they were not big enough to be motivating or exciting.

I was discussing this with a colleague and mentioned that having a goal of 12 people in my August Leading Yourself and Leading Others experience wasn’t a big enough goal.

I recalled the goal we had of buying the motorhome and going travelling. We visualised. We acted as if. We went to caravan and camping shows. We joined the Caravan Association, even before we had purchased Contessa (the motorhome). We were totally focused on the what and the why. We didn’t concern ourselves with the how and miraculously everything fell into place.

It was a similar situation with buying our home. We wrote down a list of all the things we wanted in the home including the aspect, the number of bedrooms, the outlook etc. and miraculously it appeared.

In both cases we had made a decision and set worthy goals.

Back to my colleague, he suggested I reframe the goal for Leading Yourself and Leading Others and set a goal to serve 200 people over the next 2 years or even 1000 people over the next 5 years. Now that’s a worthy goal.

That’s a big enough goal.

That lights me up. That gets me into action because I love working with people and sharing what I have learned. My mission is to inspire, educate and support you to be, do, have and feel what you want. Oh wow! When I imagine helping that many people I get goose bumps (or spiritual bumps as Jeanine Sciacca calls them).  They’re like a message from the universe that this is a spiritual truth.

So, with my decision made to help at least that many people over the next few years, I am asking for your help. Who do you know who could use a dose of Shirley or as clients say, Get Shirlified?

I’m now in action. I’m visualising. I’m marketing. I’m having those conversations because that’s a goal worth pursuing.

I imagine a world where we can all have what we want.

I imagine a world where we are all assertive and when we express our desires, the people in our network support us. They say, “Great, how I can help you get there or get that?”

I imagine a world where we have great relationships because we listen to each other and we speak our truth and we know how to fight clean.

That’s my mission, vision and goal.

What’s yours?

Is it big enough to get you into action or more importantly, as my mentor Lou Heckler once said, if it doesn’t scare you, it’s not big enough.

Reply to this email and let me know what your goal is. I’d love to support you.

P.S. Our next Leading Yourself and Leading Others Experience starts Thursday 3rd August. Early bird discount will end 30th June. Mark your calendar for Thursdays, 3rd, 17th, 24th and 31st August. More details to come.

Mind Control – Yours or Mine (WT673)

Mind Control – Yours or Mine (WT673)


WT 673 Mind control, yours or mine

You know how Ross and I love to learn and grow and develop.

Last weekend we travelled to Sydney to complete the 4 day immersion into The Silva Mind Control Method.

I was surprised and fascinated at how many people backed away from me a little, when I mentioned what we were studying.

“Who’s mind control?” they would ask.

Smiling, I replied, “My mind. I can’t control your mind, nor would I want to.”

The Silva Method was developed by Jose Silva back in the 1940’s and he began teaching in the mid 1960’s. Since then, millions of people, ordinary people, business people, medical people, academic people have graduated.

Don’t be frightened by the words, “mind control”. This isn’t something out of a fictional sci-fi movie.

Mind control is about controlling our thoughts. It’s about paying attention to the words we say.

It’s about creating the life we want to create.

It includes learning about energy and how everything is connected. It’s about understanding the various frequencies of our brainwaves and how best to use them: Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta.

One fascinating study we watched on video demonstrated what Cleve Backster calls “Primary Perception” or the connection between all living things. He conducted an experiment where he observed a plant’s response to the death of a brine shrimp in another room through the use of a polygraph.

His results convinced him that plants demonstrated telepathic awareness. He argued that plants perceived human intentions, and as he began to investigate further, he also reported finding that other human thoughts and emotions caused reactions in plants, which could be recorded by a polygraph instrument.

There have been mixed reactions to Backster’s claims, however during the weekend, we developed our own intuitive processes to be able to find answers to questions and challenges we have.

This might sound a bit “woo woo” to you, however Ross and I believe this is knowledge that all of us can benefit from.

Another comment from the facilitator that also helped me to further understand the difference between conscious manifestation and surrendering to life is what she called “the paradox of universal laws”. Universal laws seem to exhibit paradoxes, where for example, we can manifest and create what we want and at the same time also acknowledge and accept that at times we need to surrender.

So, what’s the point of this week’s thought?

To open your mind and awareness. To encourage you to think outside the box. To cheer you on as you create and manifest the life, business, career, health, relationships and abundance that you desire.

I’m off now to relax and go deep into the alpha state where possibilities become manifest.
