Opportunity or Obstacle

“The biggest obstacles in our life are the barriers our minds create.” -Unknown

An opportunity or an obstacle? Yes, that’s this week’s message. I bring it to you as I had this great realization as we were driving in the car yet again. Many of you know we travel quite a bit in our car to watch our daughter play softball, (by the way they won their conference championship- Go Upstate Spartans)

While I am in the car, I’ve always told myself this story of how I get car sick. I can’t do anything while I am in the car except; stare out the window, listen to music, or close my eyes.

Well, this past week while we were driving I had this incredible idea come into my head. This teaching that I wanted to do and I knew I had to write it down. What was I to do? This time I choose to take out my notebook and start writing.

Guess what? I didn’t throw up and I didn’t get a total headache! That is when I realized I had been telling that story of not being able to do anything while I drive in the car and I was letting it hold me back.

Are you doing that? Are you telling yourself a story that creates this obstacle that you never turn it into an opportunity? Check out this article for “10 Strategies for Turning Obstacles Into Opportunities.”

I would love to know your thoughts. Feel free to email me at info@ninaobier.com.

The KEY is in your Morning Routine

P.S. I am grateful for the intentional action I took a few months ago when I published my second book, “My Daily Clarity- 90 Days to Connect.Create.Communicate.Celebrate” It brings me joy to watch others use this tool consistently and have tremendous shifts in their daily routines that have created space for their absolute Yes’s. Be sure to grab your copy and see what clarity putting pen to paper can create. Maybe grab a few trusted friends or colleagues and start your own accountability group too!

One Moment At A Time

“Wherever you are, be all there.” -Jim Elliot

One moment at a time. Yes, that’s this week’s message. I am constantly being reminded of this lesson. Cherish the moment. The actual moment of being present wherever you are.

I know it can be hard. We have so many distractions in our lives. We have the physically distractions and sometimes more difficult to escape the mental distractions. Did you know we have about 90,000 thoughts a day?

The greatest gift we can give ourselves and others is in the moment. This past weekend we were celebrating my daughter’s graduation from college. At the same time, we have another daughter who was playing in her final home college softball series game of her sophomore year.

Seeing as one was in Florida and the other was in South Carolina we could not be in two places at once. What we can do is live in the moment, be fully present. It is the only gift we have.

How successful are you with being in the moment? Being fully present? Check out this article for “11 Ways You Can Fit Mindfulness Into Your Busy Life.”

Action

“You can’t build a reputation on what you’re going to do.” -Henry Ford

Action…speaks louder than words. Yes, that’s this week’s message. Not a new message. Why do a new message, when this one still needs to be learned?

This past weekend I FINALLY launched my retreat. I have been thinking about it since last October. Don’t get me wrong, being the brain trainer that I am, thinking about it, is a great part of the process. I also know intentional action creates momentum.

We don’t get momentum if we are only talking about it, or writing about. Even though I am all about putting pen to paper, if that is your only step, you are allowing your dream to stay a dream.

That’s what I loved most about this retreat. We did plenty of deep thinking and a ton of writing. In the end, every single one of those women ended up with a blueprint, an action plan. They are launching. The best part they now are part of an accountability group which will hold their intention, cheer on their action and lift them up when they need.

I would love to know your thoughts about action speaks louder than words. Feel free to email me at info@ninaobier.com.

Travel Light

“The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel.” -Steve Furtick

If you want to travel far and fast, travel light! Yes, that’s this week’s message. This is not a new message. I’ve talked about this one before.

Why are we so focused on what others are doing? Why can’t we let go of fear, bitterness, resentment, and anger? That stuff is dragging you down.

I don’t know about you but every day I try to choose JOY as my compass. Instead of looking around at what everyone else is doing, I remind myself that I have a unique purpose, vision and mission that I am to do in this life.

I said this a couple of weeks ago, comparison is the thief of joy. If this is true then I am going to do my best not to compare myself to others.

Lessons From An Egg Hunt

“Blaze a path of your own brilliance and illuminate the world.” -Unknown

Lessons from an egg hunt. Yes, that’s this week’s message. I bring it to you as I reflect on one of my favorite moments from this past weekend, which was when I participated in an Easter egg hunt.

There were about 100 eggs for 5 of us to find. It was night time which made it more exciting. I remember the adrenaline rush when we ran out into the yard to go find the eggs. I watched as people were finding eggs in the cars and the plants in the front yard. So, I followed their lead. I too started finding eggs. Then it dawned on me and I asked myself, “Why am I following other people, when I could blaze my own trail?” At that moment, I took off into the backyard and that is when I found the most eggs.

I remember thinking to myself “I am such a rock star! I am doing so well at this.”

We then went upstairs to count our eggs. Guess what? I came in…last, and it didn’t matter. I learned these lessons; I totally enjoyed the journey and focused on being the best version of myself. When I took the focus off what others were doing, when I choose to be a leader, that is when I found the most eggs.

I would love to know your thoughts. Are you blazing a trail, finding your own path, and being the leader of your life? Are you enjoying the journey? Or are you comparing yourself to others? Getting down on yourself for not “winning” the hunt? Feel free to email me at info@ninaobier.com.

How’s That Working For You?

“Stop worrying about what can go wrong, and get excited about what can go -right.”  Unknown

Pay more attention to what’s working positively in your life than what is causing you trouble. Are you more focused on the criticism? Either criticism from others or the criticism you give yourself? If things are going wrong, is that where your energy goes?

How’s that working for you?

I believe this is a simple concept. May not be easy. Simple. Focus on what’s working positively in your life. If you have trouble thinking about it, take out a piece of paper and a pen, start writing down all the good things that are going right. Get your brain focused on what’s working for you.

I would love to know your thoughts about this simple concept of focusing on the good. Feel free to email me at info@ninaobier.com.

Everyone Wants To Change The World…

“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”  -Unknown

Everyone wants to change the world but no one thinks of changing themselves. Yes, that’s this week’s message. In my weekly video, I explain what I mean by this concept.

Do you agree that the way to change the world is by changing ourselves? I absolutely believe this to be true. It is my passion to lead others on their personal development journey in a FUN way.

This is why on April 28-30, 2017 I will host my first retreat. The weekend retreat includes an 8-Hour Transformational Blueprint for Success Workshop on Saturday. During the workshop you will discover and create a plan for your purpose, vision and passion. We will spend two nights in a beautiful location. Breakfast Saturday and Sunday. Happy Hour/Dinner Friday Night. Dinner Saturday Night. Pajama Party/Game Night Saturday. PLUS Special connection time Sunday morning. There are only 4 more spots. More details HERE 

Are you ready to be the change you wish to see in the world? Be sure to email me at info@ninaobier.com to officially grab your spot at my first retreat.
