I'm a giraffe....I'm a giraffe....I'm a giraffe...

Don't you sometimes feel like a giraffe trapped in the body of a pug? Knowing you are this tall majestic being full of purpose and adventure... but somehow you're stuck seeing the world and experiencing the world from the view at 1 foot.... no more in 2013! Time to SOAR!

Today I posted a picture of a pug in a giraffe suit...just an image I found online.... you can see it on my facebook page : www.facebook.com/wowyourlifenow

On a usual basis (previous to late Feb) I averaged 35-50 views from my daily wow tips! I listened to a Facebook marketing webinar and with implementing 3 tips I went from 35 views on average to 150 !!! - And this tip has yielded me my biggest view to date 203!

This little picture prompted several things.... a couple of people saw it which prompted dialogue and the conclusion saying " I'm a giraffe!! I'm a giraffe, I'm a giraffe!!!
Often we feel trapped by our outer circumstances....and so our outer transforms or directs our inner.. which means we are tossed to and fro based on what's happening... where's the power in that?

You've got to choose to let your inner direct your outer....the pug is a cutie...lovable, huggable, cutie that gets the attention of others...If you goal is to get attention then be the pug.... but if your goal is to soar...to see beyond what is just in front of you, to move quickly, to eat from the 'high' fruit.... you can either be a pug dressed in a giraffe outfit or you can be a giraffe.....

I know it sounds simple but you have to decide your goal...then transform your inner to experience your outer... know you deserve it then take action to receive it...

I heard someone say..."If someone gives you a million dollars, you better hurry up and become a millionaire!!"....

Valarie Johnson

0-10: During this decade my life was filled with chaos and coping.

I learned how to survive and go into myself in order to survive

Because sexual abuse happened to me I now feel empowered to be an example of what happens happens FOR you, not to you provided your mindset transforms and you know God uses ALL things to elevate you toward his purpose for your life.

When I think back to this time I feel glad about it


11-20: During this decade my life was filled with change and plans and dreaming and setbacks that led to setups.

I learned the power of speaking something into existence and getting the heck out of what doesn’t work

Because leaving for college happened to me I now feel I can leave and go for it anytime!!

When I think back to this time I feel amazed that I even survived.


21-30: During this decade my life was filled with newness/defeat and incredible growth.

I learned what it means to have low self-esteem and how it has chased me all my life and all I had to do was turn and face it.

Because this attack of low self-esteem happened to me I now feel like a great champion of people to share with them how to defeat it

When I think back to this time I feel grateful for those amazing lows because the bounce back has been what I build my coaching practice on.


31-40: During this decade my life was filled with God’s presence and a newness or rebirth

I learned how God uses every experience in our lives to evolve us and when we accept this as truth we have a peace that surpasses all understanding

Because my growing relationship with God happened to me I now feel empowered, with healthy self-esteem, I feel like a thought leader in my circle of influence and I feel like every day is a gift to behold and LIVE!

When I think back to this time I feel ready for the next level.


41-50: During this decade my life was filled with manifestation of my biggest boldest desires

I learned to be led by God and to share my life with others.

Because the daily renewal (in Christ) I now feel like I deserve the mega success (spiritually, financially, physically and just overall in my life) I’m blessed with!


Before you read another self help book!

Reference (5 facts): http://www.onlinecollegesanduniversities.net/blog/2011/15-surprising-facts-about-the-self-help-industry/

And FYI self help includes iLiving App, Health Supplements, Health Juices ..... life coaches, nutrition specialist, fitness experts, psychologist, authors, network marketers and more...
Here are 6 facts about the marketing strategies, profits and success of the industry.

1- Women are the new target audience: All right, maybe this little fact isn't totally surprising. But the intensity with which the industry prowls for female consumers — and virtually ignores male consumers — is still remarkable. If you count prophets like Oprah as major promoters of the self-help industry — and you should — many American women have become insatiable when it comes to New Age spiritualism, snapping up books like Eat, Pray Love and all kinds of products designed to make them look and feel beautiful.

2- Americans spent $11 billion on self-help in 2008: Despite — or even as a cause of — the recession, the self-help industry's profits continue to swell. Marketdata Enterprises released an $11 billion estimate for what Americans spent on self-help books, coaching and similar products and services in 2008 alone.

3 -"Self-Help" dates back to 1859: The term self-help may have been coined in its modern form in 1859, when a Scottish social reformer published the first self-improvement book titled, "Self-Help." But the idea has been around much, much longer. Many ancient cultures in India, Greece, Rome and East Asia created better living guides and touted principles designed to improve ourselves, from the Stoics to Proverbs and beyond.

4 - Infomericals pull in the largest sales volume: The most profitable sector in the self-help industry is infomercials — yep, you're not the only one watching those fitness or wellness spots late at night.

5 - Over 13 million relationship self-help books were sold in 2007: Yes, someone is buying those ridiculously titled self-help books you laugh at to your friends. In fact, 13.5 million relationship self-help books were sold in 2007.

Now I'm sure you've probably read many self- help books last year and may have a book list for this year....How do you measure your ROI for the time, energy, effort and purchase price of this book?

The Energy of THANK YOU

A few weeks ago I offered a challenge to anyone who desires to BE..DO..and HAVE.. more in 2013! More sales, more revenue, more vacation time, more family fun, more spiritual connectedness, more LIFE!! and more of the good stuff that makes life grand...
It was such a simple challenge that I believe in it's lack of complexity it's effectiveness was lost! 

#1 Nature does not strain to do anything! The acorn becomes a mighty oak with no stress, strain or manipulation....it just Becomes ...

#2 Complexity is the work of the EGO
--It's gonna be hard ....EGO
-- This is taking too long...EGO
-- I might not reach my goal....EGO

And the EGO's job is to Edge God Out.....

on 1/29 I had one of those God Ideas... a flash of inspiration! - my EGO tried to talk me out of taking this opportunity and since I recognize it's voice it was easy to dismiss and move forward...
5 phone calls resulted in ...
1 no, 1 left message and 3 meetings with decision makers who are ready, willing and able to partner with me for Life Coaching Services!

What were the 2 words and what is the challenge....
Were at the end of a new month and a perfect time to start a new process.... do this for the next 28 days and see what happens in your world....what have you to lose?

Thank you....

A heartfelt thank you will shake mountains, move souls and change the heart of even your hardest critic.....the energy of gratitude is enormous!

Here's an opportunity for you to harness the energy of gratitude and learn to use it to change your world and add to the harmony that sometimes seems lost in the chase to be rich....

#1 go to https://www.box.com/s/hsoiez2xxbam0jsim5ob and DOWNLOAD the gratitude matrix
#2 read the script and adjust according to your taste
#3 Starting Feb. 1st.... USE IT... 5 minutes before you begin any work, read the script and with a sincere heart give thanks to whomever you are going to contact or work with at that time. Send blessings their way, in fact blast them with blessings
#4 Chart your progress
#5 Don't give up or think its too simple to work....remember complexity is of the EGO, simplicity is the spirit and SPIRIT is connected to the source of all that is and ever will be!

Let me know - on March 1st, your results!!


How to turn everything and everyone into soldiers fighting FOR your success

Soldier: (a) one engaged in military service and especially in the army (b) an enlisted man or woman (c) a skilled warrior (d) a militant leader, follower, or worker (source: Merriam Webster)
Souldier: a person connected to others, soul to soul, fully engaged in helping one soul reach it's desired end result or vision or dream of success, in any God glorifying way he or she can!
I'm Valarie Johnson, Certified Life Coach, MBA and Personal Strategic Planning Professional - dedicated to being a souldier/soldier for your success....

My Mission: To use my ENTHUSIASM AND CREATIVITY to TEACH AND INSPIRE OTHERS to use their own unique STRENGTHS, TALENTS and ABILITIES to live the life of their DREAMS.

How can YOU turn everything and everyone into soldiers fighting for your success?
With a very simple technique, so simple that you may even laugh at its simplicity, you can use 100% of what has some your way....with one simple adjustment....
And, like the others, I won't charge you for this valuable nugget! I won't even ask for your email address.......all I ask is that you use this process for the next 7 days....bypassing your small inner voice, Mr.Small,  who desires to keep you less than the greatness your soul promises.... and allowing the process to become a new way of living...

#1 Whenever something goes great, just as you desired, be sure to express authentic gratitude!
#2 Whenever something goes wrong....no matter what it is....whether it's a traffic jam, spilled coffee on your fav. suit, a loss, getting yelled at, losing a sale..... whether big or small.... whatever or whoever creates a negative thought or action.....ask yourself the following...
yep that's it....the moment you feel discomfort, IMMEDIATELY, ask and answer this question....
When you do, you turn everything and everyone into soldiers fighting for your success...because no matter what they do, you will find a way to benefit and succeed!!!

Can it be that simple? - let me know in a week and you'll see!
#1 Print this or write out the statement
#2 read the statement often
#3 Believe that it will help you!
#4 Use the statement from now on.... it will take time to get used to and in doing so you begin to CHANGE YOUR MINDSET......
#5 Share this with as many people that will benefit (fyi, that's everyone! )
Have a wonderful week!


Acknowledge what you feel, then cling to - - - -!

What goes around comes around......

Do you realize that when you relive the terrible, awful, unspeakable wrongs committed against you and feel the pain, angst, heartache and anger over and over and over and over.....

At some point you have to decide what you believe...do you believe that
....what goes around comes around?
.......we reap what we sow?
----------I'm just this helpless thing and stuff is happening to me?
.................turn the other cheek and get out of the line of fire?
........................payback evil for evil, hate for hate, force for force?
...............................it's all random and therefore there's nothing I can do....

Even if you haven't named it, you have made an agreement...and it shows up everytime something doesn't go your way.... you need only review how you handle situations to reveal the agreement...then ask yourself does this agreement really serve me? Serve me for the good? Or has it just become this bad habit? If it's become a bad habit....DROP IT LIKE IT'S HOT....

The agreement I've made with life is as follows:
#1 Anything and everything that got to me went through God....
#2 Which means it's not happening to me, it's happening for me....
#3 Which further means that there's something greater on the spiritual nonvisible level occurring even when it's disguised as something bad... meaning my human senses (sight, hearing, feeling, tasting and smelling) recognize the visible/surface level as an unfortunate event... but those senses are just the tip of the iceberg...and the larger part of the iceberg is the spiritual real side... that's a completely different story...
#4 That story is this is happening FOR me, for my greater good and the greater good of any impacted and it's my job, my role and my pleasure to exclaim Thank You God!!! For I know in ALL things you are working for my good! My faith in action is praise!! So here/hear I am Lord, and the words I say are Thank YOU!!!

It's a matter of acknowledging what I feel....then clinging to LOVE... LOVE expressed as Thank you!

I encourage you to review your own process and see if it serves the tip of the iceberg or the entire iceberg......
