What Is One of the Keys For Success ? It is Strategy My Friends !

What I learned is that behind any goal you want to achieve, you need to have a robust strategy. In a nutshell, each goal you will achieve is purposefully connected to your ultimate goal.

The idea is, like a new building, you’re going to work on the foundations, the materials, the design before making it real and this is exactly what you need to do for the achievement of your goal. It’s like mapping the way to your goal/ desire/ wish. Because your focus is always directed to the success  of your goal, you will not be side-tracked or demotivated.

The key is to have a reminder of your purpose and knowing that we are getting closer from it daily, weekly, monthly is like from a telescopic view, we will create a kaleidoscope view which is your goal vision.

Because we are so much bombarded by information and so many choices that we can lose the plot and truly lose our focus. And it can happen BUT we have the power to say NO and to do massive action for change. And this is YOUR power. When you embrace change, everything you desire is going to happen my friends. Dive into it and enjoy the ride !

Be Inspired, Motivated, Empowered by Gaëlle !

You may have noticed that the name of my blog changed. It’s not Be Yourself by Jolia but Be Yourself by Gaelle. A small change which translate my desire to do not hide anymore behind my nickname on Internet Jolia and to embrace this change wholeheartedly… because it’s TIME !

I used to navigate on Internet with this name since Caramail (which mean it has been for ages !!!) and I feel this drive to connect my true identity with my blog that I love.

I think it is truly the time for all of US to take action, step into our power and be unapologetically ourselves. It is a door for more authenticity, an identity statement to rock 2018. So with this new intention,  you will hear much more about me my friends to inspire, motivate and empower You !

How To Set A Powerful Intention This Year

What is an intention ? It’s the decision to make a choice and direct your energy by doing so. For instance, you can set up your intention to have a day filled with gratitude and joy. By doing so, you will focus your energy to anything bringing this outcome and attracted by you, (the Law of Attraction is a cheeky player), you will see, witness events, circumstances, results leading you to live in this state. Everything is Energy. The key is to know and direct your energy to what you want.

What is even better to set up intentions that you will achieve successfully is to create an intention from your soul and not your ego.

An ego intention is for instance to lose weight to do not feel judged or because you lost your boyfriend. The feelings behind such intention is often struggle, anxiety, lack, fear and a lot of should. An ego intention is rooted in the desire to be validated by the society, by others. Whereas if you choose to lose weight  to be fit and healthy, behind it, lies a beautiful idea of love, expansion and limitless possibilities that your soul aspire to. To reach a state of wellbeing and being comfortable in your own skin for yourself. The roots of this intention are so meaningful and positive that you will remember about it and naturally your mindset will shift to reach this intention.

So take the time to think about what you want to achieve this year and identify if your intentions are from your ego or from your soul. It is a fantastic empowerment exercise that I learned yesterday from Marci Shimoff and Debra Poneman and I loved it !

 

How Can You Empower Yourself With Kindness and Celebration ?

When time is given to us like now, reflect of what we achieved is the perfect time. Because we are in a state of relaxation, joy and kindness, go back in the past is a step you can do with more ease and focus. And it is most of time revealing of the huge work/ projects we completed this year. We are easy to judge ourselves and look for better but the secret is to celebrate any victory, success, failure because ultimately all these steps lead to ongoing learning and personal growth. And this is a subject close to my heart to embrace our uniqueness and empower ourselves.

Empower yourself is not only finding the products, methods or online courses which will undoubtedly open your perspective and change your understanding of you and the world, it is truly be open to learn in an unconventional way to challenge the status quo and put to light what is not working for you right now : judgements, preconceptions, media, society definitions of success, beauty, education in a nutshell brules as defined by Vishen Lakhiani, founder of Mindvalley.

It is also, learning from your life journey, failures, comic situations, achievements or circumstances getting you out of your comfort zone to truly experience and live.

So, take the time to enjoy your loved ones and reflect on the past 12 months to identify what you want to achieve in 2018.

Ask yourself : What do you desire the most ? Why is it so essential to have what you desire ?How can you achieve it? What’s stopping you ?

These questions will guide you to uncover your real desires, the purpose behind them and your inner limiting beliefs and/or roadblocks to give you the opportunity to blast them off. If you need more guidance to replace them by empowering beliefs, do not hesitate to contact me, as your cheerleader, I will be happy to empower you and help you transform your life in an authentic way. 2018 is the perfect time to dare, to rise and to shine.

How Can We Truly Connect With Our True Self ?

I attended a Neom Organics event two weeks ago and the subject the Art of Connection really resonated with me. What is the art of connection nowadays? Are we able to connect authentically and most importantly how?

When I was in holiday, I reprogrammed my mind to disconnect from the digital world by switching off my mobile. It’s simple, easy and straightforward but what’s happened when you are back at work? How can we truly disconnect and connect with our true self?

1.Blast off these notifications

Between the promotion emails with tons of discounts, great deals with the brands I love, the social section of my Gmail exploded since I am part of several Facebook groups and to the last the emails, the real emails I need to give my attention to are increasing every day. How can we organise this constant flow of information ? By setting bridges to stop this flow. How ? Let me tell you : I switched off all the notifications disempowering me, i.e. that I took the bull by the horns and decided to receive only reminders for the calls I need to give, for my meetings and tasks to do per day. Asana is awesome for that. Since then, freeing myself from these tech reminders made me feel like a million bucks and my self esteem and confidence skyrocketed! Use the technology to serve you, not to be a slave of the digital world.

2.Unsubscribe

I cannot tell you the number of emails I received in my personal inbox per day and I was litteraly losing a previous time to read, organise and respond to everyone. What I did firstly is to unsubscribe to all the emails I am happy to receive but pure temptation for my monthly budget. It’s when you start to get tired that you start to resolve your shit and one day, illico presto I did it.

Every email received, I asked myself this question : Is this email is adding value to my day, my objectives ?

Yes – I read the email.

No – I unsubscribe from this mail list immediately. Pronto.

3.Connect with Your Tribe

When you feel bored, not challenged intellectually, going through the motions without being very present, give a call to your friends. The friend who will tell you the truth with no flowers, the girlfriend who will get you out of your moodiness and push you to fight, the brother who is always here to support you no matter what, each of them know you from the core and are the best to elevate you, push you to be yourself and become what you want to be. They believe in you, they love you and this is priceless. Look after your tribe.

4.Develop Your Awareness

Being aware is the gift from the Universe. Seriously, because with this power in your hands, you know, you see, you feel when you are in misalignment with your vibes. Meditating is opening the doors to new perceptions of the world around you because you are willing to see it, to open your mind to it and this is the first step. Secondly, you deepen  your empathy, your kindness, you re-learn to being compassionate with others. Why ? because you understand on a higher level the world, the power of your ego and intuition and make the choice daily either to fight for love or for hate. Headspace is awesome for beginners and Ziva is the best meditation I have ever tried.The power is in your hands, my friends, it’s time to harness it.

Tracy Anderson London Vitality Week – Day 1 : Being Yourself

My God guys, I went to the first day of the London Vitality Week with Tracy Anderson and it was epic. You know when you are following the founder of a fitness method, different from any other workouts in the world, buying her DVDs , following her workouts via streaming, seeing her in real for the first time is amazing !

Particularly when she is everything you expected and she manage to even exceed your expectations, it’s being filled with joy for all the day. Tracy is down to earth and so nice that you feel reassured that you are trusting her to sculpt your body.

More importantly she is an advocate of being yourself, own your body and knowing yourself and this is the epitome of connection I feel with her. Why ? Because I am your cheerleader to celebrate your uniqueness and we need to empower ourselves with the right tools to own our body. Being yourself is a journey because different parameters need to be in balance : emotional, psychological, physical and energetic (spiritual) part of you. Each of these parameters are interlinked and we, as individuals need to understand these parameters to fully be connected with our mind, body and soul.

It is for the above reasons that I love the Tracy Anderson Method because this workout is pushing you to tune with your body and mind to a level you cannot imagine, it’s like a constant detox for your mind (removal of your old or limiting beliefs), for your body ( removal of your stress and emotional baggage) and tap into your inner energy to become what you want to be. And such transformation  requires persistance, determination and consistency. When you truly want to reach a state of balance where harmony or balance is your mantra for each day, you need to keep going, to believe in yourself and work for it.

The music and the heat create an intense environment where you are challenged, to find your balance, to unleash your desire to push yourself, move like you want and have fun. Everything is done for your mind to be totally focused on the moves, on you and what you can do. It is slowly but surely a creation of your own flow where this deep connection allow you to speak with your body.

I truly think that consistency and perseverance is the price to see the results you want whatever you are talking about fitness, career, entrepreneurship or relationships. It’s achievable if you decide to have the right mindset for it, to focus on the positive and do not give a damn about what other people think !

This method is giving you much more than your dream body : you will build and develop your inner flexibility, your own dynamic to feel yourself and feel confident in your body. It is really an empowering process which requires reflection, analysis to learn about yourself , what are your weaknesses, your strengths, your limiting beliefs and your resilience. And this is where your transformation will start.

Happy or Bad Day ? Do We Have The Choice To Decide ? Yes, You Do !

I am counting my blessings everyday recently and my vibes are more louder, positive and vibrant. The law of attraction is really working, what you give is what you receive and I set my intention to give a lot of love, light and support to my loved ones and my friends.

Helping them daily to focus on their happiness, to be grateful to what they have now is key to truly staying positive and make your dreams come true. I know some of you will tell me “easier said than done” but the beauty of it is when you are making the effort to do it, it works. It empower you proving that your attitude and mindset are your power to manifest what you want in your life. No need to rush, to run, to react, just choose to make a meaningful choice : to let it go or to stand up. You can do it.

Gabby Bernstein – The Universe Has Your Back

I have been intrigued by so many books in a short period of time that it took me some time to figure out THE book I will definitely read. I am still reading it, to be honest, a bit like ” The Power” because each time I open this book, synchronicity is playing in the background and the guidance I got is exactly what I need to read right now. It’s crazy right?! Crazy or not, honestly it does  not matter, what matters to me is to have the book, where each word will resonate with me, touch my heart to the point where I will surrender to open myself to new beliefs and possibilities.

The book pushing you to dig deeper and open yourself to a new level of understanding is ” The Universe Has Your Back” from Gabby Bernstein. It is not a traditional book, it’s more a modern guide to build your relationship with the Universe or God (whatever you want to call it) to live your life as you want with a fantastic Universal team behind you. Yes, He has our back and it’s time to know it to cultivate our happiness to bring what we want in our life. As simple as that.

This book is like a map into a world you always be more or less aware about it, but this time, you have a compass in your hands to guide you, to help you develop this connection with the Universe to find your direction. With meditation and prayers and plenty of personal stories… and let’s not forget a no bullshit attitude, Gabby is opening a door where it is time to be your own sunshine and fire up the light within you to be your authentic self.

In a nutshell, a fantastic self discovery, a journey to empower yourself and connect with your spirituality. It is for these reasons that I really recommend you to read this brilliant book !
