PLAN FORWARD AND DON'T STEP BACK

go time.png

IT'S GO TIME

Saying you want it.

Visioning it.

Feeling it.

Dreaming about it.

Planning for it.


They are all somewhat beneficial pieces of the puzzle. Yet they are just that. Pieces.


Individually they render themselves useless.

Together they are just as useless UNTIL....


You pair them with forward action.


Suddenly you've created the WHOLE.


Until you are going to decide to take the next action and then the next action and then the next action, until that very thing is a part of your reality it will forever be a thought, a dream, a wish, a hope.


It will remain what others have and you wish you had.


You don't plan for and commit to it today and then promptly go back to doing what you would have been doing tomorrow if you had not decided to commit to it today!


Sound confusing?


A real life experience of exactly that....


It's taken 28 years for my man to come to the understanding that this stuff I talk about (ok maybe preach about) is not theory, is not fluffy, it not wishful thinking, is not woo woo, is not spirituality (well it is but not the way most perceive), is not hard, is not for a select few.


What it is about is your - his - my, ability to actually be integral across all areas of life in a way that allows us to be honest around:


What we truly want vs what we think we want

What has to be done in order to live that

If indeed we are willing to do those things...


In which case if we are not...it's simple.

You don't TRULY want it.


There is literally one question that is needed to move you from where you are into where you TRULY desire to be and in fact, deep down know you can and should be.


The answers that come from that question is exactly where "let it be easy" was born.


You sit down and you plan, you strategize, you think about all the available options, you feel good.


You get back to doing what needed to be done in your day and next thing you know your living yesterday all over again.


You suddenly realize you haven't given thought to that thing that needs to be taken care of 6 months down the road so you start planning for that.


So what's the problem here?


That thing you TRULY want, the one you committed to, the one that once it is your reality means that, that thing 6 months down the road (that you forgot to give thought to) doesn't even exist because it is no longer a part of your life or concerns.


AND YET

You are spending your time and energy getting ready and preparing for EXACTLY THAT.


So which one are you ACTUALLY committed to?

What you truly want or what has been?


Back to my man.


Of course I asked that one question. "So if indeed we already were living that, what would we be doing?"


Naturally him being him... he went to what he would NOT be doing, which is fine as it's one in the same in this case.


"I would not be heating with wood" was his response.


That response alone was enough for him to fully embody 28 years of my "nagging" and the "let it" be easy mantra.


You could feel him relax into to the freedom of not cutting 22 cords of wood a year. The freedom of time. The excitement of the other things we would be doing instead. The realness of it had set in and he GOT IT.


Now the interesting thing is that heating with wood is what he noticed first. There will be no heat source needed inside of our plans so wood heat is a mute point.


But this next part is incredible.


As we walked through the forest in knee deep snow last week, as he had to carry the dog because he couldn't walk any further he says to me.


"I have to start thinking about what area I want to cut from this year"


"Oh, tell me more," I said. "What are you thinking?"


He went on to discuss different parts of the property. I listened and when he was done I simply said, "gosh it sounds like a lot of time tied up in going back and forth?"


He was puzzled. "Are you going to want to travel back and forth to cut wood for someone else to burn?"


His eyes got wider, his smirk began to grow.


"Why are we talking about cutting wood when you already decided that was the thing that was absolutely not needed inside of what it is we ARE doing?"


"You have to plan forward and don't step back. Let it be easy," I reminded him.


"If you want to constantly plan around and act on what was required of you yesterday or last season or last year, you can count on being in that same spot tomorrow and the next day. It's why we have been talking about this "idea" for 14 years and it has never become our reality"


"You stepped forward now stop stepping back.

You have one direction to go and that is FORWARD"


The need to think about wood - was banished!


So the question becomes...


What do you truly want vs what you think you want?

What has to be done in order for YOU to live that?

Are you indeed willing to do THAT?


If it's not a yes, begin again and find a truer true.


AND THEN


Stop stepping back.


You see, this work - this is THE WORK. It is YOUR WORK. The only work in life that matters.


It's the work of integrity

It's the work of a life fully lived.

It's the work of willingness to see when you are not in alignment.

It's the work of mindfulness.

It's the work of awareness.

It's the work of commitment, to yourself

It's the work of expansion in all ares of life.


It's the work of walk the walk don't just talk the talk.

It's the work of stop dreaming it and start living it.

It's the work of inspiring others to do the same, to live their best life by you stepping into yours fully.


This thing you want. The success you desire. The experience and the feelings you long to live inside of. They all come from doing the inner work. You could call it mindset work but frankly it is SO, SO, SO much deeper and more than just mindset.


They are a result of the transformational work and ironically the duality in that is that we are not transforming anything.


We are getting you BACK to who indeed you KNOW deep down you have always been and are launching you into the life that you KNOW is waiting for you.

Remember,

Life is not meant to be hard. Let it be easy!

YOU ARE WHAT YOU NEED

Untitled design (7).png

STOP HANDING OUT PHOTO COPIES

You are what you need

The problem is you have your nose up in everyone else's business.

What are they up to?

What are they saying?

How are they doing it?

How can I make that work for me?

YOU CAN'T because it's not you, it's not meant to be you and it's not soul aligned for you.

You've proven it to yourself over and over and over again and yet - continually you:

Cruse the groups

Peruse their words

Dissect their actions…

and carefully craft a second hand version of the same, while screaming from the mountain tops....

HELLO WORLD I'M OVER HERE!

You've proven to yourself over and over and over again that "it" will never work for you BECAUSE YOUR STILL STANDING HERE DOING THE SAME THING REPEATEDLY.

If it worked, it would have worked by now AND more importantly you would NO LONGER need to continually repeat the process.

Now let's jump to the point...

This tactic will absolutely grab the attention of a few.

It will most certainly stroke your ego

Your mind will be beyond ecstatic

AND

Your soul will be deep inside softly whispering "AGAIN?".

You see your soul will NEVER scream for you or at you, it will continue to whisper until the day finally comes that there is NO OTHER OPTION but to sit your ass down and listen to it's whispers.

AND IT WILL HAPPEN just like tonight the moon will come out regardless of if you see it or not.

It will happen because as quick as your ego and mind are flattered....the cheerleading squad will loose their cheer, burn out will set in and your passionless purpose will no longer be fulfilling.

Cruse the groups

Peruse their words

Dissect their actions

"Again?" she whispers.

"I have so much to share!" she nudges. "Don't you trust me?" she asks. "When is it our turn?" she inquires.

She assures you, "I'll be here waiting until it get's quiet enough for you to hear me."

Dormant she sits while you continue to...

Focus on what they are doing

Try what they are trying

Ignoring her plea...

You are WHAT you need. YOU are WHO you need.

The YOU is what will endlessly fuel your passion and purpose.

The YOU is your content.

The YOU is your unique selling proposition.

The YOU is THE ONLY thing you have that NO ONE else has.

You are the ONLY thing that is NOT duplicatable (given that you are actually being authentic).

There is no rule book of doing you.

But there is a MASTER COPY.

If there is nothing else you take away from this, write this down.

"You are either being a Master Copy or You are handing out someone else's PHOTO COPIES!" © angie peladeau 2018 (because well - you know)

And that my friend is what I see spreading like WILD FIRE.

Photo copies!

"50 Shades of COPY" © angie peladeau 2018 - How long will it take for someone to knock that one off ?!?!

If you are in business to make a difference in the lives of others then it's time to dissect the most basic of business principals.

You spend 80% of your time creating 20% of your results.

You spend 20% of your time creating 80% of your results.

That has been scientifically proven, it's not up for discussion!

That being said, let's take it a step further.

When you find yourself wondering why you are not where you desire to be.

When you find yourself frustrated that you are not seeing lasting results.

When you find yourself tired of the boom and bust cycle.

STOP doing what you are spending 80% of your time doing - BEING A PHTO COPY.

That quick hit of dopamine you get, that fast ego fix, the massive mindfuck that's at play… is it really worth settling for the 20% it's bringing you?

OR

Shall you try sitting your ass down to curate your own thoughts.... while listening to your soul for the whispers that are being gifted to you? The ones that will direct you, STEP by STEP to the very SUCCESS you desire. Might that be worth actually giving AT LEAST 20% of your time to, in order to INCREASE your results by 80%

Just a thought... it's up to you.

That was my 20% for the day - sermon complete.

I was being a little facetious with that statement, but not really.

You see today was one of those days.

I had nothing to say. No agenda to draw upon. I was feeling pretty uninspired and felt like a two year old ready to have a temper tantrum screaming -” I don't want to write, I don't feel like it, why should I have to?”

I started and stopped 7 times. I made a latte, got some chocolate, face timed my daughter, i did everything I could to get out of it AND THEN it all happened effortlessly.

The fingers started typing, I got out of the way letting soul come through and TRUSTED that the Message would be the message and that, THAT was all I was required to do with my 20%.

The other 80% of my day - IT'S MINE to do as I will.

It would have been easy when I was lost for words to spend time

Crusing the groups

Perusing their words

Dissecting their actions

All in an effort to see what and how they get their 80% worth of results but the simple truth is, I would have to give 80% of my day to actually replicate their systems and words in a ay that would make any kind of lasting impact in my own business at which time I would only get 20% of their results anyhow.

So it's up to you.

PS The EXACTIFICATION SMACKDOWN has arrived.

THE MINDSET AND STRATEGY FOR CRUSHING YOUR GOALS FOR DRIVEN, HELL-BENT HUSTLERS WHO ARE READY TO GET RESULTS.

And all within the 20% - leaving you the 80% to live your life.

The 80% will be smacked right out of you.

LIVE ANOTHER YEAR BACKWARDS..... KEEP MAKING IT HARD

angie peladeau

I’ll be the first to admit, when I first began to learn that none of this was hard and that we totally do it all backwards I was so resistant.


Naturally it felt like I was a child being scolded, like someone was saying, you idiot you’ve done it all wrong.


In return I fought against it, stopped studying everything I had been studying, threw the books that spoke of it aside, unfollowed anyone that preached about it.


Actually truth be told I had a mentor at that time, my resistance was so strong that my ego quadrupled in size and I responded to one of her emails telling her to get me off her list, that I had unsubscribed on my own already, she was still targeting me and that it was now harassment.


ONLY TO resubscribe a few weeks latter once I had dropped the resistance, leaned in and became curious. As soon as I stopped making the idea that there was another way mean that I had been doing it wrong EVERYTHING changed.


Here we are years latter and I am not to proud to say YES all of it was true, there most certainly is another way and it certainly is not (at first) logical. It absolutely is NOT intuitive.


Now,


While many are gearing up for the year ahead,

I am gearing down.


They’re thinking about who they want to become,

I’m thinking about what I’m releasing and who I will no longer be.


They’re thinking about what they will begin to do,

I’m thinking about what I no longer desire/need to do, shouldn’t have to do.


They’re planing and strategizing how their life and business will look.

I’m dancing with excitement that my mind has so much time off, knowing there is no need for that.


They are plotting out the “how” to do it all and make it all happen.

I’m sipping a latte, going for walks, getting a massage or maybe getting my hair done - knowing that IS the how. 


Intuitively we humans lean into hard, difficult, complicated and challenging.It’s the only logical thing to do simply because the minds ONLY job is to keep us in conflict.


To step into a life of flow, of soul alignment, of letting it all be easy is to be in direct opposition to the mind.


Ya, ya you want it to be easy…I know, I know. I argued that for years.

Wanting, allowing and making it easy are VERY different things.

Wanting will not change a thing.


Deciding and THEN leaning into understanding how so that you can take action from that space and place WILL change everything.


Had I leaned in a whole lot sooner.

Had I dropped the resistance that I had carried for years.

Had I had noticed how big my ego was and what it was doing.


Things would have become so much easier, so much more relaxed, so much more exciting a whole lot sooner.


So while they are plotting out the “how” to do it all and make it all happen.

I’m sipping a latte, going for walks, getting a massage or maybe getting my hair done - knowing that IS the how.


I’m not at all thinking I’m doing it better, I’m not for a second thinking they are doing it wrong.


What I am doing is remembering when I was the one trying…..… for years and years.


What I am doing is extending an invitation to you to lean in, open up, become curious and LET IT BE THAT EASY.


Just for a moment lean in, grab a pen and paper and without thinking respond to this journal prompt. Let what naturally flows out of you land on the page.


If I truly believed that it was allowed to be that easy I would ………….

If I truly believed that it was allowed to be that easy I would no longer ………


Cheers to Next Level You

Remember,

Life’s not meant to be hard,. Let it be easy.

PS Soul Alignment and why I can pretty much promise you, your keeping yourself from it. A quick snippet right HERE

So here’s there thing that many “successful individuals” rarely share.

poker.jpg

This shit is not at all, all roses.

2018 was a fabulous year, I remember the day my pen journaled on my page I would live in another country 3 months a year. That was at the end of 2015. And here we are completing 2018 with me having done exactly that. ✅

It was 2017 when my pen would write, “what if you simply showed up authentically as 100% you and invited others along the journey and were handsomely compensated for it?” ✅

On an on it goes, the checks beside the words that landed on my journal pages, unknown to me feels great.

The  ✅’s are amazing and exciting and incredible and DON”T HAPPEN BY THEMSELVES.

What they don’t tell you is that between the checks there is a lot of crap that needs to be shovelled.


It’s not all pretty and exciting.

There are days when we don’t feel like it.

There are day’s that we are too exhausted.

There are days that other people need us so much that there is nothing left on reserve for ourselves.


These are the days that many, dare I say most…. throw in the towel. Why? Because, if you don’t recognize what’s happening, if you get so far down the rabbit hole you can’t see the light, if you do not know how to change direction and change it fast, it is all consuming.


I have lived both my dreams and my demons. I am ULTRA human. I am humble. I am an EXTRA - ordinary, human. NOT an extraordinary one.


And through it all what I have learned on a cellular level is, 


YOU GET TO CHOOSE WHEN IT STOPS BEING SO DARM HARD.

YOU GET TO CHOOSE WHEN YOU WILL STOP LETTING IT CONSUME YOU.

YOU GET TO CHOOSE WHEN YOU WILL BEGIN TO TRUST THAT IT CAN BE EASY.


Trust is a choice YOUR CHOICE.


If there is anyone that has the right to speak about trust it is ME and I certainly would not have chosen to have that right. If we were to look at nothing else but the two most all consuming things of this year…


This year I had to trust that a 9 year old car accident that went to trial would not leave us owing 1.3 million dollars. A court case my husband would have to testify at DURING OUR 2 MONTHS IN BALI. Which would mean he had to fly back to Canada and then back to Bail again.


So how does that break down?

Trust that you will still have a home.

Trust that somehow you will be able to feed your family.

Trust that you can keep yourself contained in a way that will not worry the children.

Trust that you should continue living and not start stock piling every cent you have.

Trust that you can connect to your soul and stay in the energy you need to be in to do your work.

Trust that you can somehow stay healthy and not relapse into ptsd and anxiety.

Trust that your marriage will survive the stress of it all.

Trust that you should still go on said trip as it was booked before the trial date was set.

Trust that in the points of complete panic you will be able to pull yourself out of it and come back to trust.

Trust that trusting is enough.


That trust brought forward - us not owing a dime and his flight to go back and forth and hotel accommodations were paid for in full by the insurance company.


To trust something that you have no evidence or good reason to trust is NOT a natural instinct, it is a learned way of showing up in this world.


This year I had to trust that after being hit by a drunk driver 8 years ago my court case would be settled out of court and I could breathe again rather than it going to trial. I had to trust that for whatever reason I had to live being broken down and torn apart by the drunk drivers insurance lawyers. 


I had to experience sitting in a room where they tell you your a fraud, with then watching you for 8 years, with them telling you that they see you smile on social media, that they are going to find your clients and tell them you are a fake when you say your life is good. 


I had to trust that experiencing that was the exact example I needed of what people do when they are not comfortable with you being comfortable and grounded in yourself. 


I had to experience knowing that if I went to trial I was 100% at risk, that no one would insure my case as it wasn’t strong enough (who knew there was such a thing) that my cost at that point was well beyond $200,000 and if I was not found to have life long/altering injury then I got to foot the bill for my side and theirs. 


What a joke who wants the label of life long injury, I’m smarter than that, be careful what you call in. I had to trust my soul when it was in direct opposition to my own lawyer and say, “NO! THIS IS HOW THIS IS GOING TO GO.”


The case settled, no court, they paid out, don’t get excited I got $7,500 which was exactly half of what it cost me out of pocket for treatments after the accident.

Never was I in it for the financial gain. I was sucked into in a way that was not in integrity, it looked nothing like what was explained to me and in the end I knew if they didn’t settle (which why would they, we had already had two pre trials and they refused) I couldn’t even afford to bail on the case financially. I’ve always been an all or nothing gal, but this was beyond anything I would have played my cards on. TRUST was the only available option.


I could go on and on with all the everyday this and that that could have sent me into a tail spin this year, all the reasons I could have bailed, all the reasons many would say I should have… but the simple fact is - 


I trust,


and in the moments I find myself in anything other than trust, what do I do?


Come back to trust.


Trust is a choice.


The only time you will ever be certain that you actually have the faith you think you have is when there is absolutely no other option than to believe.


So there it is, it’s been an absolutely incredible year and probably not in the ways you might have expected me to brag about it.


The moment that stands out most in my mind this year was running into an old friend after getting back from Bali. His greeting was, “hey how are ya, life’s hard egh?” 

He was just being his sarcastic self. Naturally he had no idea of anything except the glorious moments and thought he was a real smart ass.

I responded “Ya!” He looked at me side ways and I followed up with, “when you make it that way”.


I believe that with every cell in my body.


It is what it is and that’s all that it is, in any given moment.


We can choose to create a story around it or we can choose trust. Both are a choice.


So thank you 2018 for teaching me lessons I never asked to learn.


Thank you for shaking me to the core.


Thank you for teaching me what standing in your truth no matter how many millions it may literally cost you is ALWAYS the right thing to do.


Thank you for teaching me that I have what it takes, I am more than enough, I am allowed to take up space, it is safe to show up and speak up and that I GET TO DECIDE what I’m going to choose and I get to expect it to look exactly as I expect it to look.

2019 Next Level You - let’s do this

Remember,

Life is not meant to be hard, let it be easy.

You have to choose to see ALL THAT YOU ARE. You have to want more of you in this world. You have to be ready to say:

I have what it takes, I am more than enough, I am allowed to take up space, it is safe to show up and speak up and that I GET TO DECIDE what I’m going to choose and I get to expect it to look exactly as I expect it to look.

Next Level You - it’s waiting for you right HERE
