Captain’s Log 001: Origins of The Mindset Marathon Tribe & A Prayer to Change Your Life
The Mindset Marathon Tribe is only 2 weeks old, and the response has been overwhelming.
It makes me realize is how much work there is to do in this area, how much we all need and want it, and I want to express my deep gratitude for those who have joined me on my journey. I didn’t offer anything specific except to join me on my own personal journey and the tribe gathered like water gathering under a ship…
I’ve got a huge change coming up in my life – I’m about to move to Australia with my son.
Since his dad and I separated in November 2018, I’ve spent the best part of 10 months in denial, wondering what I was going to do – stay in Switzerland where I’ve lived for 13 years or go back to Australia to be with my, our, family.
I realized pretty quickly that no matter how much mindset work you’ve done, no matter how spiritual and connected you believe yourself to be, when you’re faced with massive challenges in your life – like your business isn’t bringing in the money that you want, or your relationship is painfully strained, or you aren’t even in relationship because you just can’t bring yourself to, or you can’t find a scrap of time for yourself in the day – you finally discover that ALL of these things are “thinking” issues.
In fact, everything is a “thinking” or mindset issue.
A few weeks ago, I launched my previously very successful online Live Video training course to crickets. Not one sale, not one cent in income. Nuddah. Zip.
I sat down with myself and said, “You’ve got to work on your mindset woman, you need some abundance work…” and suddenly there appeared a “golden” opportunity for me to invest in a proven “business in a box” program. It cost just shy of $USD30 000. When I heard how much it cost, I laughed! “Are you kidding? $USD30K ?!”.
Yet, before long, I found myself seriously considering paying $USD30K to buy into it – an excellent mindset program – and I would then become a coach in that style.
Then the magic started happening – within two days, I started to find some money!
As quickly as my mind had raced towards the possibility, I slammed the brakes on and asked: “Do you really want that pressure? When you are just about to pick-up-sticks and move to Australia, do you really want the pressure of having to pay that money back as well as the pressure of finding money for rent and for everything else you will need, known and unknown for the move?”, and I was still so incredibly tempted to say YES to it.
In the end, it became crystal clear that I didn’t want the pressure right now. However I realized that what I really craved was to work in the mindset-shifting field because I absolutely LOVE it, have loved it since I was 20 years old and I know it works. The most exciting thing about being a birth educator and a live-video coach was always the transformation of the thinking, the mind-set and the success I saw my students have because of it.
What dawned on me when I was considering investing in the expensive training program was that I know enough already to get myself where I need to go. I’ve read many of the books the program recommends – I’ve read them, but I realised I wanted and needed to read them again. I thought: “You know what Michelle, you’ve just got to take action with what you already know. Don’t think you can just chuck a whole bunch of money at somebody to solve your problems”- and $USD30K is a whole bunch of money for me right now and of course no guarantee of success…
But there’s never any guarantee of success except in your own head. Ask any top athlete.
Then THAT thought got me following the rabbit even further down the rabbit-hole of possibility.
“How can I strengthen my mindset shift? How can I do that?” and decided I’d set myself the goal from now to February 2019 to completely overhaul my thinking-system.
Then clear as a bell it came to me: “There must be so many other people out there that feel they want to do something the same,” because they’re also stuck somewhere in life.
Now I’ve got to admit something very full-on…
Prosperity is my biggest sticking point. After looking at the rent prices in Sydney, I woke up the next morning in a sweat, and it was then I suddenly realized that’s where I’ve got to do my work because that’s where the fear is. It’s just blocking me, and I’ve got the tools, I know what I’m supposed to do.
How many people are there who aren’t getting the results in their business and not seeing “that part” of their energy flow? My friend and Shaman, Marian Nielson Joos said “Michelle money is a symbol, and it’s a symbol of the flow and how the flow of creation is moving through you”. Each one of us has the right to stand in that flow and to have money coming to us but for whatever reason, our thinking gets in the way.
Perhaps you were brought up in a household where there was a scarcity mentality even if there was plenty of food on the table. We can grow up in the most wealthy environment but our thinking is set by the adults around us – that there’s never enough or it won’t come to me. So this is the thing I want to start working on right away.
Why did I call it a mindset “marathon”? Because a marathon takes preparation and commitment and it takes daily work. It feels like moving to Australia is something I need to prepare for in the same way that I would prepare for a marathon, but the marathon that I’m running is in my head.
After I looked at the houses online, I thought: “Now that you’ve seen what’s out there and how much it is, start to visualize what you actually want. Don’t think about price, just visualize how you want to live and what that house is going to look like,” and I started doing that, so my mindset has started shifting already.
What is the prayer to change your life from today? It’s a Morning Prayer from Dr Joseph Murphy, author of “The Power of Your Subconscious Mind”. Say the prayer every single day. Learn it. To learn it, I used to say it every single day at least five times.
Divine order takes charge of my life today and every day.
All things work together for good for me today.
This is a new and wonderful day for me. There has never be another day like this one.
I am divinely guided all day long, and whatever I do will prosper.
Divine love surrounds me, enfolds me, and enwraps me, and I go forth in peace.
Whenever my mind wanders away from that which is good and constructive, I immediately bring it back to the contemplation of that which is lovely and good report.
I am a spiritual and mental magnet, attracting to myself all things which bless and prosper me.
I am going to be a wonderful success in all my undertakings today.
I am definitely going to be happy all day long.
Please learn it – just trust me, learn it and watch it work magic in your life
