It is said that what we focus on increases. In this episode, Connie Benjamin describes why this happens and how we can shift our focus to create the results that we want.
More About This
I vividly remember going through life feeling like something was wrong with me because I did not feel in control of my emotions. I am a fairly passionate person; and although this can bring many blessings, it also requires temperance to be the person I want to be. I recall feeling the massive ups and downs of my emotions that seemed to turn on a dime depending on the circumstances I was facing at any given moment. If things were going my way… I felt happy and excited. If things did not work out, I felt disappointed, frustrated, and angry. The funny thing is that when I think back to that point in my life, it didn’t actually matter what circumstances I was going through, what truly mattered was the meaning I gave to the situation and how I chose to feel about it. What do I mean? I mean simply that sometimes I could experience the very same situation, but I would feel completely differently about it.
As I’m writing this, I think back to one time when my daughter, Zoe, was acting out and she hit me. I wanted her to be respectful, and felt exasperated and frustrated when she lashed out at me. As much as I hate to admit it, I started asking myself questions like “why is she being such a brat?” I recall another time when Zoe was doing the very acting out with the same behavior but this that time I was not angry or frustrated with her. I was able to give her consequences her in a loving way and feel compassion towards her. So what was different? How could I feel and respond in a completely different way when the situations were exactly the same?
I struggled for years trying to figure that question out. I wondered how I could be more loving with my husband and my children, and how I could be more of the person I wanted to be, even when going through stressful circumstances. I know that this life has ups and downs, and I didn’t want to only feel happy during the summers of my life. I desired to have the capacity to enjoy the wintery seasons of trials that would inevitably enter my life. I knew that doing this was critical to embracing a life of joy, authenticity, and love no matter what circumstances the journey I was on or life brought me.
In my search for answers of how to create a more happy, more loving and more consistently incredible life, I finally found the answer. In a moment when I learned the 6 Secrets to Purpose, Profit, & Passion from my mentor Brandon Broadwater, I finally understood how powerful state of mind is, and how our state of mind affects how we perceive and experience life. I understood that the ups and downs of emotions inevitably happen when we do not manage our state of mind. A fire lit within me and I became willing to do whatever it took to be the person I wanted to be for myself, my Creator, and my family.
In this episode and an upcoming episode “Empower Your Body To Empower Your Life”, I will share with you what has helped me to feel more peaceful, happy, and more connected to the people I love. I will share one of the pillars of state that has made such an incredible difference in my life, and how it will help you to feel even happier in your own life. I can’t wait to share this with you because it has made such a difference in my own life!
Who is Connie Benjamin?
Connie Benjamin is an international speaker and author of the upcoming book Women With Fire…6 Secrets to Purpose, Profit, and Passion. She is also the host of My Fire Within Radio. After sharing her message from the stage with thousands of people, she realized women entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs who want to make a difference in the world through their work without losing their family, or their sanity needed a book to guide them in how to do it.
Connie discovered it was possible to have it all, at the right time, and in the right order, after she learned about Higher Laws principles. Now, she dedicates her time to sharing her knowledge with female self-starters to help them improve their lives. These principles helped Connie restore her marriage from feeling disconnected to being better than the day she and her husband Andy were married! These principles also helped her replace her day job income, as she found renewed love in being a stay-at-home mom with her three daughters, and recovered her health.
Connie knows how essential it is to give back, so she is donating all the profits from the first edition of her book Women With Fire to charity to help families in developing countries access clean water.
