Do you know where you’re going to? Do you like the things that life is showing you? Where are you going to? do you know? Do you get what you’re hoping for? When you look behind you there’s no open door What are you hoping for? Do you know?
Many of you have already invested in getting a copy of The Big ASK so some of this content is going to piggyback many of the principles in the book. (Sidebar: Please take the time to write me a review on Amazon. Reviews on Amazon are like gold nuggets.)
The one question I get all the time about productivity and The Big ASK is: How do I get clear on my wants, needs, and desires? Having a Big ASK is getting so much emphasis nowadays for two reasons.

“The Passion + Purpose = Profit event on Friday night was super inspiring. The panelists, who included Tiara Williams, Monique Rodriguez, Tamika Mallory, Lucinda Cross, Tashera Simmons, Bershan Shaw and Precious Avorkliyah-Evans, encouraged everyone to put themselves first and do what makes them happy.
Either you can be Passionately Poor or you can be Passionately Profitable. When you are Passionately Poor it means that you are passionate about something, and people see your hard work, but you’re not getting paid. Passionately Profitable is when you are dedicated to your passion and do whatever it takes to brand yourself, and turn that into profits.
Each and every person’s passion is organic. Your Passion is created from what you LOVE plus what you’re GREAT at. If you don’t know what your passion is, you need to get out and experiment with different things you like to do onestop plumbers. If you try something you thought you liked and it does not work, you get up and try the next thing, and then the next thing and then the next until you have found your passion.” —Recap article featured in EGL written by @Tawana Coleman, Speak Free Communications
In our interview with Lucinda Cross, she drops some amazing jewels on how to Activate Your Life Now and how she helps amazing entrepreneurs such as yourself get started. She gets down to the nitty-gritty on how procrastination can be your ultimate downfall unless you learn how to master your mindset, so that your not just allowing life to happen. Lucinda has taken the world’s best kept secrets and helped them to gain exposure. She has assisted numerous Reality TV Stars with understanding how to maximize and monetize their rise to stardom. Lucinda instills in her clients two main principles utilizing 5 Pillars of Excellence:
During the half time in a game, the entertainment comes out, the players get a rest, the coach reviews the game plan and motivates the team, a discussion happens as to who is not performing at the highest and best, and whether or not they need more defense. There is a lot of activity going on during half time that motivates the players to finish the game with intentions to win.
Plan Out Your Time: If your intentions are to win, win, win, no matter what, then moving past the half time to the finish line is important. Beginning a new thing or a new project is exciting, but you must be selective with your time and how you use it. Keep the end result in mind. I like to create a small vision board for my major goals with a list of of my minor goals that will get me closer to accomplishing my major goal. Each major goal should have a timeline and focus days that you dedicate to your completion date.
Get Rid Of Perfectionism: What happens when starters get to the half-way mark is perfectionism. Perfectionism leads to procrastination and gets in the way of making it to the finish line. When procrastination takes over you no longer see yourself at the finish line. You begin to get tired and overwhelmed. The best way to get rid of perfectionism is to keep it moving with a sense of urgency.
Commitment Is Key: Give yourself permission to end a project if it’s really not in line with your vision. If you are at the half way mark in your project, focus on finishing what you started. Take this time to look at the game plan and see what needs to be changed, added or omitted. How you started may not be the way you finish. Some of the team and support you started with may not be there with you at the finish line. That’s why half time is so important.
Make A Plan And Work Your Plan: Rely on your half time strategy, planning and process, not your own willpower. You want to create a mindset and working environment (associates, partners, volunteers, advisors) that will pull you and push you forward towards the finish line. Answer the following questions:
What do you need to do to stick to the plan?
What is the outcome you desire?
What will it look like when you have attained the desired result?
What will it feel like when you have reached your goal?
Who will you be celebrating or sharing this moment with?
Where will you be sharing the moment?
How will your life be different from that way it is now when you have crossed the finish line?
What aspects of your life so you have to overcome or change in order to cross the finish line?
Half Time Tip: if you want to stay motivated to complete what you have started, to move past half time, then you must do one thing. Celebrate. Celebrate during half time; congratulate yourself at that midway mark. This will heighten your motivation and determination to complete your project.

La felicidad a través de los ‘vision boards’ o mapas de los deseos.
Hablamos con la escritora y ‘coach’ estadounidense Lucinda Cross, una de las gurús internacionales en el arte de la visualización creativa.
los 18 años le condenaron a cuatro años y medio de prisión por narcotráfico. Durante su etapa en la cárcel, Lucinda Cross-Otiti se refugió en la fe y participó activamente en todos los talleres que le ofrecían. En uno de ellos encontró la inspiración. Las conferencias de Tony Robbins y Les Brown le dieron la pista para volver a imaginar su futuro. Se empapó de lecturas sobre desarrollo personal y pensamiento positivo y decidió aplicarlas a su vida. El día que la liberaron se propuso tomar las riendas de su realidad y dedicarse a ayudar a los demás.
Así es como esta neoyorquina se convirtió en una de las mujeres más respetadas de su país en el campo del desarrollo personal. Sus investigaciones sobre la práctica de la visualización le permiten hoy recorrer Estados Unidos al tiempo que ofrece charlas, cursos de formación y asesorías a multinacionales. Ha escrito varios libros y colabora periódicamente en la edición estadounidense de The Huffington Post. Además dirige la iniciativa Activate your life today. ¿Su especialidad? Los vision boards o mapas de los deseos –también conocidos como wish boards–, una vieja técnica de crecimiento personal popularizada hace una década por la escritora Rhonda Byrne y la presentadora Oprah Winfrey. La idea consiste en diseñar un tablón con frases y recortes de revista que nos ayude a no perder de vista aquello que deseamos. Hablamos con ella para saber más sobre el cambio, la felicidad y la conquista de los imposibles.
