I wanted to hop on and give you my fundamental mindset philosophy: Gratitude. It is so simple and it's so sublime and it will change the trajectory of your life if you practice it. And I'm talking bow down to your knees gratitude. For the simplest, tiniest things, every single day. I want to share about my practice and how it works, how I use it every single day and what that's brought me in life even as recent as this past weekend. When I focus on what I have versus what I don't have, I unlock even more. It's just amazing and it seems like magic and it's so simple and it's the easiest thing in the world once you just start to put that into practice. And it's the teeniest things. Not for "I'll be grateful when I get that one day." Be grateful for what you have now.
Time Stamped Notes
[1:43] Michelle usually puts her phone in her dresser across the room so that her phone is not the first thing she sees the moment that she opens her eyes. When she wakes up, she floods herself with gratitude for as many things as she can come up with. She just primes her heart and she lines her mind with this gratitude for the simplest things.
[4:19] After flooding her system with gratitude, Michelle then does incantations. These are strong statements of declarations of who she knows she is, with emotion and meaning attached to them. Usually, Michelle has about three to five incantations. Then she will do a Tony Robbins priming exercise. This is through an audio program which is about 10 minutes long. Michelle just primes her mind and she lines her heart to just completely be grateful, to understand the blessings in her life and also to get very clear on what she envisions will happen next. So Michelle does the gratitude every single morning and the priming exercise on some mornings.
[5:40] Michelle will then look at her phone as she's feeding the animals. She will check out the wonderful things happening on social media, but she tries to avoid the path of diving into social media for too long because she doesn't want to come up with the comparison game that can keep her small or make her feel limited. She just responds to certain messages and DMs and then she starts her day with whatever was on her to-do list that she had done the previous night.
[8:37] Michelle has learnt that when she focusses on what she has versus what she doesn't have, she can unlock even more. It's the tiniest things. Don't be like, "I'll be grateful when I get that one day," be grateful for what you have now. There's so much to be grateful.
[9:00] Michelle just arrived from the Unleash the Power Within, Chicago event by Tony Robbins. There she was able to show up and step up by saying "Yes" to any single new level. In the event, she did things she normally would have been scared to do and things she had felt vulnerable to do or things she had earlier avoided to do because she was worried about what other people would think of her. She may have experienced her old limiting beliefs, however, she realized that this is the very thing that stops so many of us from ever doing the things that we feel called to do. So she had to burst through, catch it, pivot, and course correct. Michelle shared this experience through her social media platform and people were able to share the similar experiences they had gone through.
[11:51] Michelle approached Dawn Cooper at a Tony Robbins event. Michelle shared with Dawn her vision for training of large groups of people. They eventually became really good friends. Dawn then organized for Michelle to be a Chairman's Invited Seat at a Tony Robbins event. From this experience, Michelle has learnt that, we all have to step up. She didn't get to know Dawn because she got seen or someone noticed her. She made the move to go to her and it took courage for her to have the audacity to say some of the things she said.
[17:00] Michelle extended a platinum ticket for the Unleash the Power Within Seminar event in San Jose to a lady from her mastermind group. After the seminar, Michelle asked the lady what major goal she wanted to achieve in 90 days. The lady wanted to complete a manuscript for a book she had started a few years back. Michelle challenged her to think of a bigger goal like publishing the book after 90 days. The lady agreed and by the end of 90 days, she had her book for sale on Amazon.
[20:09] Michelle believes that her upward spiral of abundance has been because of her gratefulness. She is so deeply grateful for all that she has and all the blessings. The smallest, tiniest, treasures in her life is what attracts more. Then she gets out and she gives back tenfold. What happens is that it comes back tenfold. She then continues to give more and get more in return.
