{RBB} Consistency = Brilliance

I started the month of with a simple focus: Consistency

Seems easy enough right?

My challenge ~  I hate routine. It feels like rules, control and boring.

 

There is nothing motivating about that, however I am learning that the most successful people have a routine.

So I knew I needed to change my thinking on that if I was ever going to be successful in the way I want.

 

running

 

 

Here’s what I did.

 

I read about and interviewed individuals that are successful. I dug into their minds  to see how they think and what their daily routines are like. This allowed me to start to see how routine created success and figure out how to emulate it.

 

The secret I came up with?

 

 

Routine is not about creating strict rules or eliminating spontenaity. In fact, it is the exact opposite.

 

 

Routine is about creating a container ~ space to be free, to create, to do.

 

 

You see, if you want to make changes in your life and you don’t create space to do it … then it will never get done. You and I both know, when we ‘try to fit it in’ ….IT NEVER HAPPENS.

 

There is always a reason, however, creating a routine, forces you to create time for IT and then the simple act of showing up allows the universe to do it’s work.

 

My new definition of consistency: Creating a container for brilliance, grace and beauty.

 

Sounds better doesn’t it!

Start creating a routine and your life and see when your brilliance shows up!

 

Here’s how things are looking so far:

    July                    Aug                      Sep                            Oct                            Nov

(control group)

Weight                 255                  255                    249                        253                       249

Income                 $4000                $4000              $8088                    $6090                   $9720

Worthiness             5                    6                        6.5                          6                           7

Opportunities        2                    5                        6                             4                           8

 

 

Worthiness scale is 1-10 with 10 being the highest (this is a personal view of how I felt about myself this month…no concrete data. Just an honest, open assessment.)

Opportunities = income increasing opportunities that presented themselves (may have saved me money or made me money)

 

 

 

 

My interpretation:

I am not going to lie. I stumbled, fell on my ass and stood myself up for several dates. However, from each one, I self- corrected faster, reached for help sooner and jumped back on the routine quicker. And I think the results speak for themselves.

To up my game, instead of  partnering with her, I have hired Michelle as my coach

…And I have also reached out and found an accountability partner. Each day, we tell each other what our workout goals are and then we have to follow-up and share how we did. Now that is some serious accountability!

Next month: Cardio and strength training. Until now, my exercise has consisted of walking and stretching, but I’m ready to kick it up a notch!

 

Love Yourself, Love Your Life,

Women have lost the ability to trust in their own heart, listen to their bodies and believe in themselves and that is fueling our life of fear and scarcity.

It is part of my life’s purpose to help every woman reconnect with themselves and live a confident , prosperous life where you have the money, time and freedom to explore and create the life of your dreams.

It all starts with believing in you.” Jenean Zunk

{RBB} Sometimes its overwhelming

Sometimes life gets so overwhelming

and you lose focus.

thCAO901OX

That’s what happened to me last weekend.

I was on a roll, doing great at drinking 60 oz. of water a day and then it happened.

Drama and stress arrived at my doorstep and I invited it in.

You know those times where everything seems to shift to crap in one day?

That’s when I did it: I stopped focusing on caring for me and started caring about my to do list.

This, of course, added more stress and you know what I did to counteract it…I ate.

I stopped drinking water and grabbed the sugar.

This lasted for 3 days before I was able to see the light, refocus, give myself a much needed hug and get back on the rockstar train.

 

As of Monday, I am back and more determined than ever to shift into awesome.

 

Now to bring this back to money…

Many times we set this big goal and somewhere along the way we slip up. We begin to beat ourselves up for not being perfect, but you know what….screw perfect.

When you slip up.. no need to torture yourself, use it as an opportunity to learn more about yourself, like I realized stress had a huge impact on my weight because I go into autopilot and eat everything!!

The important part is consistency and commitment.

If you fall off the proverbial wagon….get back on.

Wanna have an emergency fund?

Start putting away $1 a day. Seriously….

The simple act of putting away money every day, will allow your energy to shift to that of abundance and gratitude (read: love) and more will come your way.

This one act will actually save you more money that putting $30 each month….pssst. it’s the consistency that is the secret.

Don’t believe me? I challenge you.

Put $1 in a jar, every day for 180 days and tell me if you don’t end up with more than $180.

Money attracts money, so the act of increasing your wealth daily with the $1 will allow more money to flow in from another channel.

Try it…I dare you.

If I’m wrong you have my permission to say I told you so and sing the I was right song.

Happy Hugs,

Jenean

PS: Summary for those of you that are just tuning in.

Rockin B & B Challenge (Bod and Bank Account)

Theory: My Weight = My Worth = My Money

Challenge: Improving my health will increase my self-worth which will increase my income.

Deets:

Timeframe: (8/1/13 – 7/31/14)

Each month I will implement one new health action and one mental shift into my life and I will track the results to determine if the above theory is accurate.

I will share the journey each week to include a detailed summary at the end of each month.

Outcome:

If it fails – I’ll  be hot

If it succeeds: I’ll be rich and hot

Either way….I win!!

August:

Health action:Increase water to 125 oz./ daily (1/2 my body weight in oz.)

Mental shift: Focus on smaller goals to ensure lifestyle change and reduce overwhelm

I have teamed up with Michelle Greenman: Women’s Wellness Coach to make sure I am doing this the most natural and healthy way possible.
