  • Ready, Fire, Aim: The Advantages (and Disadvantages of) Acting First and Thinking Later

    Brett Keenan, Principal and Founder, BRKeenan & Associates, LLC

    Inertia is the enemy of growth, standing between us and our desired outcomes. Too many of us have been captured in the bog of procrastination or in the slow death of "I'll do it tomorrow". From boot strap start-ups to training for a marathon, the process of "Ready, Fire, Then Aim" is more than a miracle worker -- it can the difference between success and failure. In this presentation, we will explore how action, almost any almost action, is an excellent way to begin, since learning to crawl quickly leads to walking then running. No infant ever thought about crawling; they just did it. So can you. MORE >

  • Accelerate Your Mojo: 7 Simple Steps to Ignite Intuition, Shake the Fear, and Unleash the Real You

    Allison Sutter, Founder, Living 360, LLC

    Do you put decisions such as sharing your authentic Self with others, your health, forgiveness, loving yourself fully, or living the way you'd prefer because of fear or doubt? MORE >

    Does it feel too hard to change the way you're living so instead you just settle for an uncomfortable status quo, hoping that ache in your gut, or low-grade stress or anxiety, will just disappear somehow?

    Do you hide who you really are from the world or worry what others think of you and your choices because rejection is too painful?

    If so, this talk is for you, or your group.

    Hello. My name is Allison Sutter. I'm the creator of the Accelerate Your Mojo (AYM) formula.

    Accelerate Your Mojo is a simple 7 step formula proven to ignite your intuition so you always know what your next best step is and feel confident making it. It's a unique and sustainable way to swap fear, doubt, and anxiety for ease, clarity, and excitement in life.

    The seven AYM steps are:

    1. Ask ... (for what you want).
    2. Desire ... (is a potent fuel. The force is in you).
    3. Beliefs ... (must be analyzed. They are the fabric of your reality).
    4. Allow ... (in the good stuff you asked for in step one, got all excited about in step two, and went to the trouble of changing your beliefs for in step three).
    5. Focus of Attention ... (is the power that creates your world).
    6. Inspired Action ... (is different from struggle and trying really hard. This action starts within, not without).
    7. Detached Optimism ... (is the paradox of increasing positive manifestations. Focus with intense excitement. Then, let go of what you think needs to happen).

    This 60-90 minute AYM workshop (I ask for audience participation) is designed to stimulate clarity, increase self-confidence, and foster emotional stability all while helping you understand HOW to get tangible results that thrill you, as you connect more deeply with your authentic Self. The AYM approach to life requires a willingness to entertain the idea that the real you is an infinite, loving, non-physically focused energy, which has chosen to experience the physical, human perspective, for now. This boundless, timeless, loving energy has often been called soul, or spirit.

    This AYM talk dispels the myth that the spiritual you and the physical you are separate, and that only those who have 'spiritual practices', or look, act, and talk a certain way, are allowed to call themselves: spiritual beings.

    Being a talk specifically designed to unleash the real you, it highlights on how you can use this idea of being a spiritual being to help to solve everyday problems, repair relationships, increase abundance (in all forms), as well as helping eliminate the mental and emotional discomfort that comes from thinking you are 'less than' or need to have more (time, money, health, happiness, success) in order to be worthy, or feel safe.

    This talk has nothing to do with religion, and everything to do with using the idea of who you are, and the resources and knowledge you have at your disposal today (intuition and love), to live a more awakened, empowered, happy life.

    During our 60-90 minutes together (depending on your schedule), you'll learn more about each of the 7 steps, determine their value and purpose in helping you achieve your specific desired AYM transformations, and deep dive into step one. You'll walk away from our time together knowing exactly how to utilize step one in your own life and the benefit it has FOR YOU.

    For more information about the AYM formula and a free e-book, visit this link http://bit.ly/2aQJzWm or my website www.living360coaching.com. The free e-book contains the self-assessment (below), and much more, to ensure this talk is right for you and/or your group. A quick google search using 'Allison Sutter' and keywords such as 'visualization', 'power of focused attention', and 'Accelerate Your Mojo' will also bring up interviews I've conducted in the past giving you a better idea of who I am and my teaching/presentation style. Causal, loving, and patient are good words to describe my teaching style.

    The self-assessment questions below will help determine if this is the right talk for you. Please answers yes, or no, to the following questions on behalf of your group, or read them aloud to your group. If you answer yes to any of the follow statements, the AYM talk can help provide sustainable solutions and jumpstart your desired AYM transformations (listed below).

    1. I want to get to the root cause of my emotional discomfort.
    2. I struggle to make decisions because I worry I'm not making the right choice.
    3. It feels as if fear and doubt are stopping me from having the awesome experiences I want in life.
    4. Sometimes I say, "I feel stuck," or "It feels like something keeps getting in the way of success."
    5. I experience strong thoughts of self-doubt, anxiety, or unworthiness.
    6. I can't seem to figure out why what I asked for in life isn't showing up.
    7. I often think, "Why does that keep happening to me? I'm a kind, positive person."
    8. I keep some aspect of myself hidden from others because I worry I won't be accepted as I truly am.
    9. The unknown aspect of new experiences, and even my future success, makes my uncomfortable.
    10. I experience skepticism or emotional discomfort even when things are going great in life.
    11. I desire a more in-depth conversation about how I create my own reality as both a physically and non-physically (spiritual) being.
    12. I want to uncover why problems and challenges (which Allison refers to as contrast) are a necessary aspect of life and foster appreciation for them.
    13. I want to learn how to use both positive and negative feelings as a diagnostic tool for empowered, happy living.
    14. I tend to put the needs of others before my own and experience resentment, disappointment, frustration, or anger because of it.
    15. I want to be a good person and help others, but sometimes I feel depleted in the process.

    The transformations from implementing the AYM process are:

    1. Clearly understand the root cause of your emotional discomfort and free yourself from its burden.
    2. Always know what your next best step is in any situation and confidently take inspired action.
    3. Use fear, doubt, and anxiety, as well as positive emotions, as the guidance they're designed to be. You'll uncover restricting beliefs and definitions of yourself and life, and rescript them ensuring more ease and appreciation.
    4. Experience daily thrill bumps of self-love, self-appreciation, and witness how life is always working out for you.
    5. Be comfortable in your skin and enjoy the good things in life, fully and unapologetically.
    6. Practice your way back to centered stability; uncork your natural vim and vigor for life.
    7. Clarify your true spiritual nature, embracing this aspect of yourself as your most cherished, trusted, and dependable relationship.
    8. Fully understand why contrast (problems and challenges) are a necessary part of life and how to use contrast as a diagnostic tool for positive transformations, instead of a reason to feel victimized, depressed, angry, or jealous.
    9. Learn to be selfish in a healthy way, benefitting both yourself and those you connect with daily. Own and honor the idea that wen you're depleted mentally, physically, emotionally, or spiritually, you can't truly help others anyway.

    While we cannot cover all these topics in one 60-90 minute talk, I'm happy to share which steps offer solutions for the specific challenges audience members are having.
