Let me be the FIRST to congratulate you on your success!!
“But Chelsea, I’m not successful. I work a dead end job, I am not super talented at anything, I lack motivation, I have no time, I have no money… I don’t even know what I want.“

What is the Main Objective?
But first…What is success and how can you define it?

How to manage your emotions effectively:
There are SO many ways to manage your emotions! Choose whichever works best for you!

The Heart of Success
Failure is TAUGHT to us
Faith separates the winners from the losers
Do not let other’s lack of faith determine yours
How to start believing in yourself
- Make a list in your journal of your accomplishments. Identify patterns in the things you have had success with to have a deeper understanding of your skills. Write those skills down on a separate list. Find activities that allow your skills to really shine and seek out opportunities to help people with those skills.
- Set goals for yourself. By realistically giving yourself something to work towards, you are telling yourself you believe you can achieve them or you would not have even set them to begin with.
- Give yourself permission to experiment with new things. You never know what lies ahead. By allowing yourself to step out of your comfort zone with full faith that you are prepared to handle whatever the outcome, you can take on the world!
- Positively reflect on events of the past. Were you once a clarinet player in the high school band? Maybe you were first chair. How awesome! What did you do to get there? Obviously you CAN do something that brings you joy and succeed at it because you have done it before.
- Write yourself a check for 1 Million Dollars. Seriously. I did this and put it in a secret place. I plan to cash that bad boy one day!

- Action (or lack thereof) is all about symmetry and balance. Basically, what you get (out of life) is DIRECTLY PROPORTIONAL to what you give.
- Reaction does not work properly if the action is taking. If you want something, you must first provide something of equal or greater value. (Many times what you receive in return for giving something is far greater in value than what you originally gave.)
- By increasing negative or destructive habits and behaviors, we decrease successful habits.
How to manifest anything you truly want
Easy! Act on your intentions and provide some sort of value to The Universe.
6 Steps to creating successful habits:
- Take an inventory of your habits. Write these habits down in a journal. Even things such as how long you sleep, what time you complete projects and what you eat, are all habits that should be kept track of. » I used to have the worst habit of being “fashionably late” to everything.
- Change the easier negative actions first. I realized the main reason I had trouble reaching places on time was due to lack of planning. Now, » when I have appointments or anything to do, I plan ahead and leave a little earlier.
- Reward Yourself! My treat to myself for getting to places on time seems small, but is a strong motivator for me personally. » I reward myself with a peaceful drive on the way to work. I listen to something motivating that I carefully chose ahead of time. I know how the traffic will be, I know I have a full tank of gas, and that this trip should be relatively smooth and less stressful because I am not rushing around. (can you see the faith?!)
- Reap the Rewards. As a BONUS reward of enjoying my car ride to work (because The Universe loves to give back, and then some!) » I am able to start my day on a positive note. I am excited and ready to start the day because of the motivational audio I listened to while enjoying a pleasant car ride because I planned a positive habit of getting to work on time and took action on that habit.
- Rinse and Repeat. Repeat this same process for every single aspect of your life. » Identify actionable moments and ACT ON THEM.
The Flow of Energy Through the 3 Pillars of Success
The action we take fuels the desire based on the results we get (no matter how small) which causes our faith in ourselves to boost tremendously!
