A common phrase I hear said so often from people is just how BUSY they are.

If this sounds like you and it’s a phrase you regularly use…then what exactly are you BUSY doing?

Quite often I find it is more a lack of direction than not having enough time. Everyone has the same amount of time in their day, no matter who they are, where they live or how much money they have, no one gets any more hours in a day. How is it that some people can accomplish so much and some so little?

Successful people and those who accomplish a lot in a day simply use their time differently.

For a start they do the following things:

1. Direction.

2. Focus.

3. A Plan.

Do you possess the above qualities?

If not then maybe it’s time you took a look at what you are achieving in a day….with Christmas coming onto our radar very soon it’s a good place to start making some changes and preparing yourself.

I personally love Christmas and sharing the day with family and friends it’s a very special day of the year.

I don’t find it stressful – I love the planning and preparing for the day and I find it very sad that so many people moan and groan about Christmas.

Every year I hear it constantly said…I hate Christmas and that time of the year. Now how sad is that….why would you hate Christmas? How boring would life be if everyday was the same and there was nothing to look forward to?

If you get organized and plan early then you will be able to look forward to the day with joy and that festive spirit…

Start with those above 3 points –

Direction…make some decisions and decide want you want for the day, what direction do you want to take? Where will you spend Christmas Day and with who? What do you see happening on the day and how does that make you feel?

Focus….now you know what you want for the day focus on how you will achieve this outcome and keep your focus on that every day.

A Plan…now write down your plan. Who will you buy presents for and what ideas do you have for what you will buy them? What food will you make and what ingredients do you need? Write down anything else you have to do and what is relevant to your Christmas Day.

On your PLAN work out from now until Christmas what are some things that you can do each week that will make it less stressful in the lead up to Christmas and on the day.

Each payday buy some presents and some food for the day. Wrap the presents up…start getting organized.

As you start crossing off some things that need to be done on your plan you will be less stressed about Christmas. Being organized brings much more joy to the occasion rather than being a grumpy, frazzled, worn out wreck on Christmas Day.

Some of the keys to success are preparation and being organized. Start with Christmas Day and see the difference it makes for you and make it a GOAL to continue being organized to bring so much more fulfillment, joy, fun and laughter into your life.

You have enough time for what is important in your life….stop making excuses and make it happen….know what you are BUSY doing and is it achieving anything for you!!!

Old ways won’t open new doors…

Set Yourself Up For Success

By | Blog

“Success doesn’t come to you, You go to IT.”
- Marva Collins

It is important to set yourself up for SUCCESS.

Have you had enough of hoping that you will get more success in your life, watching while it seems to happen so easily for others …have you simply had enough of the hard slog living from day to day – constantly living the same old stuff over and over!!

Hi…I’m Karen Scott – Creator of the ‘Unstoppable Life Program’ and I am here to help you bring ‘More Success into your life!
To Show You The Quick And Easy Way To Live The Life Of Your Dreams And It Can Begin Today….

How can you get started? It’s about applied consistent action, having a great plan and being disciplined to stick to it…taking the necessary daily steps.


Here are a few simple tips that may help you create the right first steps for you:

  1. Set some meetings up with successful people. Talk to people with the knowledge and skills that you want. Ask them questions. Importantly listen to their answers. When you keep talking you know that stuff but when you listen to someone else you can learn something you didn’t know. Don’t go in with a set plan just yet…be open to new ideas. Remember they have already got the success that you want. Don’t try and reinvent the wheel – they know how to do it and this can save you a lot of time and money. Good discussions with successful people can help you create your success more easily and effortlessly…A very worthwhile lunch date to organise I would think…..who better to learn from than an expert on the subject. Or you could ask if you can shadow them for a day at their work to better understand what their work is like. It is a great way to first find out if this is the direction you want to take. Go to seminars and listen to great speakers you always learn something and get a take home gem…when listening to other people’s successes ….its a great place to network you pick up great ideas and tips when talking to other like minded people.
  2. Read a few books that push your thinking. Books are a great place to get ideas… but don’t view a book, as the gospel truth on your topic, there are lots of different answers, but use it to expand your thinking to create new ways….. Many great things have been sparked from reading a book…. Don’t underestimate the power of this - it opens up your mind to other ways of thinking which is important as it is your own way of thinking that holds you back or propels you forward….Your thoughts create your reality…. There is an endless supply of information out there…millions and millions of books on every topic imaginable…. If you read one book a week look how much more knowledge you will have by the end of the year.“If you can dream it, you can do it.” - Walt Disney

  3. Start an ideas notebook. Begin to research and collect ideas and interesting examples for your new business, or products. Cut out pictures to look at daily. Being able to see things visually or to feel and touch them sparks off that mental picture and you get the clarity that then motivates you. The motivation gives you the momentum to keep searching…Writing down your thoughts and creating a file for inspiration can help your ideas emerge and grow…. Or put up a wallboard and put notes on it with your ideas. Get a little quick stick pad and just jot your thoughts and ideas down and stick it up on the wall. They can easily be removed or added to as your idea takes shape….Share what you have learned with someone you trust and get their input.
  4. Watch Great YouTube Videos or Podcasts. There are many great TED Talks and thousands of other speeches you can listen to. There are speakers on almost any topic available to you. Take notes and write down important points that can help you develop your own plans. Determine how to translate your key points into action and get started. It is so easy to search on the Internet and find the help and information you need.
  5. Create the vision and impact you hope to have. Ask yourself some questions… ‘What will be happening when you are living the life you want…visualise and what do you see?’ What will the impact be for you and others? How do you feel about it? Don’t worry if you don’t know your exact goal and the specifics yet. You should know your “why” though. When you come up with a big enough ‘WHY’ to do something you can figure out “HOW’ to do it. It doesn’t matter what you want in life – if you can figure out ‘WHY’ you want it, it gives you the absolute drive, the absolute power that gets you going. What is your purpose for doing something, the reason you are doing it. You have to know… What Do You Really Want For Your Life? And Why Do You Want It? When you know these answers with certainty you can really focus on what you need to do to achieve the result you want! And also ask yourself what will it cost you over the next 6mths, 2yrs, 5yrs if you don’t take action towards getting the life you want?

How Far Can You Go

By | Blog

How do you know how far you can go - until you try to get to somewhere you have never been before?

Too often people decide without even trying that they can’t do something just because they have never done it before. Crazy eh who would want to do that?

How Can You Possibly Know What You Can Do If You Have Never Tried.

All it takes to achieve something new is to set the goal to get there and put realistic steps in place.

Learn to not listen to negative messages in your head…it is just a bad habit you have got into and the more you listen to those inner voices the more negative you become.

Before you know it you will be saying to yourself there is no use even trying because I know I won’t be able to do it. Control those negative thoughts before they control you.

With this defeatist attitude of course you won’t be able to.

Learn new positive habits and train yourself to look for the outlook you want with a knowing that you can do it. Stop the woe-is-me stories that you tell yourself and others…don’t live as a victim.

The more attempts you make to think positive thoughts, the more positive you become and that brings creative solutions to the situation.

Only those who risk going too far can find out how far than can go. Always look ahead for the next journey you want to go on. We all have an Everest that we want to climb…find what it is for you. You can do remarkable things. You can be UNSTOPPABLE!

You’ve got to want it more than you don’t want it.
To win you have to love winning more than you hate losing. If you start fearing losing then you can be beaten because that is what you will be telling yourself.

Everything you want in life you have to make a decision and every decision has a consequence. Learn to focus and visual what it is you want…see the whole journey in pictures…visualise all the steps and how will it make you feel.

Sit next to a successful person – talk to them and learn what they have done….it cuts out a lot of wasted time and mistakes when you learn what not to do from them…their experience is priceless.

You can do any damn thing you like if you have enough passion – enough commitment – are prepared to take risks – just go for your dream. You want to die with lots of memories not lots of unfulfilled dreams.

Stand outside of yourself and take a good look at who you are and see how others would see you….If you were looking at you as another person - would you be happy with what you see, or is there anything you would want to change about this person?

It is helpful to be able to see ourselves as others see us then we are more open to receive and accept compliments or take criticism as we know these are helpful when we take a constructed view of our life.

There is no can’t …what you really mean is you won’t – humans can do remarkable things its all about attitude.

Learn skills to create a brighter future, rather than just letting life happen to you. Create moments that will take your breath away….magical moments ….MAKE IT HAPPEN by living a limitless life and becoming an unstoppable person!
