LIAM 444 – Choose to Be Happy

Are you stuck in a "I'll be happy when..." mindset? This mindset is common in our culture. The mindset looks like this: You'll be happy when you get the money, the job, the house, the car, the health, the relationship, etc. It's a lie! The money won't make you happy unless you choose to be happy when you've got the money. The key is the word "choose." Happiness is a choice. It is choice to think thoughts, in the moment, that produce feelings of happiness. You can choose happiness right now!

LIAM 469 – The Truth About Fear

Fear is something we all experience has humans. For some, fear keeps us from enjoying life. But here's the truth about fear: Fear is not true. In fact, you are not actually afraid of the "thing" you say you are afraid of. You are afraid of what the "thing" might do. Fear is a story about the future. Armed with this truth, you can radically change your experience of life!

LIAM 183 – Just Do What’s Next!

I believe everyone should have one or two BHAGs (Big Hairy Audacious Goals), goals that are so big you have no idea how to achieve them. However, many of us, look at that goal, fail to see how we can achieve them, and give them up as unrealistic. The problem is, because we can't see past steps 6 & 7 in our planning, so we don't bother with steps 2 & 3. Take a deep breath and just do what you can do today. Just do what's next! Listen as I explain:Listen on iTunes or Listen to/download this episode here: Mentioned in this show: Worry No More! book Download: Affirmations for Abundant Living LIAM Team Life Coaching CommunitySubscription/Social Links: Subscribe on iTunes!

LIAM 431 – Positive Focus

We always get more of what we focus on. We always become what we hold as our self-concept. Do you have a positive focus for your thoughts, feelings, imagination, and actions? Positive focus is different that positive thinking. With a positive focus, you can allow negative thoughts, recognize them for what they are, deal with them, and continue to move your life in a positive direction. Listen as I explain:Listen to/download this episode here: Listen/Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | Google Play | Stitcher | RSSThis episode is sponsored by Holosync®, the most powerful meditation, brain enhancement, and stress-relief tool in the world!

LIAM 364 – Goals, Lies, Broken Promises

Many people have given up on goal setting. Even more people set goals, yet procrastinate on doing anything to achieve them. The problem isn't with the goal itself. The problem is with the lie that we have believed that our goals will give us a sense of worth, accomplishment, peace, security, etc. Each time we reach a goal, we expect to feel these things, but we don't. The goal has broken its promise. However, the goal never made that promise to us! The goal is not capable of giving us anything. Stop believing the lie, stop focusing on the broken promises, and start living in the creative freedom of the now!

LIAM 472 – Visualization, Meditation and Creativity

When you're stressed out and consumed with thoughts of how to solve problems, you are not in an energetic state where health and creativity can exist--you are trapped in a Beta energy. Through the proper use of visualization, you can quickly shift into Alpha and Theta energy states. This is where life's magic happens!

LIAM 200 – Common Limiting Beliefs

I have not met a person who doesn't have any limiting beliefs. I'm sure some people like that exist, I just haven't met them yet. A limiting belief is something that you think about yourself, other people, or the way life works, that keeps you from living to your fullest potential.

LIAM 218 – Focus on What You Want to Feel

One of my favorite mental exercises is to put myself into the future and think about the past. If I have an event coming up, I imaging the event is already over and I ask myself "How did it go?" Most importantly, I ask myself "How do you feel about the event?" By imagining how I want to feel when the event is over, I can actually bring those feelings, that energy, into the event before it actually begins. I recently explained this to a man who has an important interview coming up, and, where he was anxious, he is now excited!

LIAM 460 – The Hardest Thing You’ll Ever Do

Most people think the hardest thing they will ever do is accomplish some goal, or get through some very difficult circumstance. Those things may be difficult, indeed, but they are actually made more difficult by the actual "hardest thing you will ever do." There is nothing more difficult for humans to do than to think according to truth, regardless of appearance. Thinking according to appearance is easy. Thinking truth, regardless of physical appearance, is the hardest work we must do--and we must do it every moment of the day! Listen as I explain:Listen to/download this episode here: Subscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | Google Play | Spotify | Stitcher | RSSSocial Media Links: www.BruceVanHorn.com Bruce Van Horn on Twitter Bruce Van Horn on Instagram Bruce Van Horn on Facebook

Are you currently struggling with worry, doubt, or fear that something is not going to happen soon enough, or that you won't have enough of something when you need it? This is a common story, but a story that does not serve you well, nor will it actually get you want you want. You have lived through difficult days before, and, if you will carefully examine your past, you will find that everything you needed to get you to where you are now showed up at just the right time. Trust the process. Trust that everything you need will come to you at exactly the right time. If it doesn't, it wasn't what you really needed, or it wasn't the right time.

LIAM 415 – Transform Your Mind

Transformation means changing, and changing means growing, and growth is scary and often painful. For a seed to reach its fullest expression, its shell must crack and come completely undone. There are 4 stages of transformation and stage 2 is the hardest and where most people give up and go back to being what they've always been. It's the cracking of the old shell, the growing into a new way of thinking, living and expressing your true self. If you can break free, however, there is a beautiful, fulfilling life ahead of you!

LIAM 406 – Let It Go

We all know the phrase "thoughts become things." It is true: everything that exists started as a thought. However, scientists have proven that thoughts and emotions in the human body emit a specific energy wave, each having its own unique vibration. So, thoughts do not just become things, thoughts actually are things. If we can objectively identify our thoughts, we can decide which ones are serving us well and which ones are not. If a thought is not healthy for us, we can let it go. "Let it Go" is step 4 in "The 7 Steps of Stress Mastery" that Bill Cortright and I teach in our workshops and coaching practices.

LIAM 400 – The Origin of Fear

Do you live in fear? Your initial response may be "no," but fear is a sneaky energy that shows up in the most unexpected places. Our desire to belong to a certain group, wear certain clothes, have certain friends, etc., is a desire that often originates in fear. What about lies? Have you ever told even a small lie? All lies are born from fear. In this episode, I talk about the origin of fear by looking at the origin of mankind.

Don't let people "should" all over you, and don't you "should" all over other people! This episode is a continuation of the previous one about our desire to fix things that might not need to be fixed. When you think thoughts about what other people should or should not be doing, you are creating a negative energy within yourself that is highly toxic. That toxic energy is not healthy for you. You are also assuming that you know what is best for that person, or you are ignoring what might be going on in that person's life that could be causing the behavior that upsets you. Let's take a deep dive into the idea that everyone is doing the best they can and is behaving exactly as they should in any given moment. Listen as I explain:Listen on iTunes or Listen to/download this episode here: Love the show?

LIAM 259 – Love Your Life, Not Theirs with Rachel Cruze

Have you looked at photos of another family on Facebook and thought yourself "I wish I had their life!"? I think we all do it from time to time. However, you need to hear this message loud and clear: STOP IT! The comparison game is a game that you will never win. First, know that the photos you are seeing on social media only show the surface that they want you to see, not the truth of what their lives are really like. Rachel Cruze is the daughter of Dave Ramsey and has been speaking for many years to her peers, and to anyone else who will listen, about the power of loving your own life, and being grateful for what you have now, as the best way of getting the life you want. She has written a wonderful new book on the topic: "Love Your Life, Not Theirs!"

Are you consistently vibrating positive energy or negative energy? We do not attract into our lives what we want. We attract into our lives what we essentially are.
