Facing My Fears With Beyond Freedom Evolution

Facing My Fears!

Facing My Fears!

Posted By Lise R

In our Beyond Freedom Evolution curriculum, the current exercise (Decision book 3) I am working on in centred around fear. The exercise asks that you list your top fears then develop an action plan detailing how you will take on your fears and ultimately overcome them. This is a super-confronting exercise for me as I often hide behind my fears and use them as excuses for not doing something.

My three top fears include – 1) mice (yes, they are small but fierce!) 2) drowning (even though I am an avid scuba diver I have never really felt all that comfortable in the water) 3) walking alone at night (too many murder/rape stories). So there it is. I find it rather confronting even to list them out publicly. The fact that I am announcing not only my fears but my planned decision to confront them holds me rather accountable!

Here is my proposed plan of action to conquer my fears. 1) Mice- My best friend Chelsey had a pet rat growing up (yuck!). I have asked her to accompany me to our local pet store to hold mice/rats to overcome my fear. She will be there not only for moral support but also for the safety of the animals in case I decide to drop one! 2) Drowning- My mom and I are enrolling in swimming lessons at our local pool. I feel that in gaining confidence in the water and improving my skills the fear of drowning will dissipate. 3) Walking alone at night – This one will need to be confronted head on. I will walk alone at night around our neighbourhood. I will wear bright colours, bring my cell phone and tell my husband my route so that he can expect me home at a certain time.

I cannot tell you how nervous and excited I am to confront these fears. There have been so many situations in recent years where I felt that these fears were holding me back tremendously. Wish me luck!

What is your biggest fear?

The Entire Polaris Gig & BFE has Allowed me to Dream Again

Dreaming Again!

Dreaming Again!

Posted By Robert T

Hi everyone, it has been many moons. Something I wanted to share in relation to yesterday’s Alchemy call. Shane was speaking about space – giving space to others and ourselves which Is such a compassionate concept, perhaps a state of being is closer to a word definition. I learnt a principal in yoga linking space to presence, being in the present moment. Take the word Nowhere and put the space between w and h to make Now Here.

One more – I loved this, BFE in action! I have been seeing a beautiful, sexy grrrr white Jaguar XKR convertible recently in Hervey Bay. This delivers a feeling of admiration for the beauty, sensuality, poise and elegance of the design. Next thought
” But I have chosen a Mercedes SLK convertible as my dream car” What do I do? – Course correct and problem solved. So much fun playing with the concept. Then there is the Porsche 911, Bentley, Maserati, Ferrari Dino Ducati 900SS, Ducati 750SS, Moto Guzzi MGS01, Moto Guzzi V7 Sport, Laverda SFC, Laverda Jota and more mechanical delicacies designed for our enjoyment on this wonderful planet. It isn’t lust honest (chuckle, chuckle)

Tomorrow we sail in the last race for the Hervey Bay Yacht Squadron Summer Series, we are second placed and have a 50/50% chance of winning the series. I sail on Mayhem (Sydney 36). Appropriately named from many Mayhemic episodes.
So often I think “Man, I am lucky” so much good stuff going on. I have learnt to believe in my dreams again from BFE, the entire Polaris gig and this wonderful community we share.

POLARIS GLOBAL EDUCATION IS ALL ABOUT EMPOWERING US TO TAP INTO OUR AUTHENTIC SELVES…WHAT THAT MEANS FOR YOU WILL BE UP TO YOU!

So Grateful!

So Grateful!

Posted By Helen S

Well another valuable Alchemy training call from the Visionary of Polaris Global, Shane Krider. Each call seems to take me to another level of growth quicker than I’ve experienced before. I think it may be because it cements everything I’ve learnt from my Beyond Freedom Evolution right to the core of my being.

This call really struck a cord within me, and made think about how far I have come in regards to my own personal development and growth, as I was taking intros for the call, I didn’t express myself as I would have really liked to, and began to think about apologizing for that with excuses, something held me back, a thought that said…..’OH WELL I did my best, next time it will be better’ which TRIUMPHED over the monkey chatter…’OMG that was not good or professional enough’……The reason I’m sharing this is because our call was about those thoughts, our self image, and thoughts of having to live up to others expectations, modeling ourselves with the labels that we feel equate to someone who is successful, we go from the negative labels which hold us back to more positive labels, though they are still labels.

The call made me realize something that I have been learning in my journey here with Polaris Global and continue to learn, an absolute TRUTH of what Shane Krider shared. BEING our true self in all we do, means FREEDOM….freedom from the good opinions of others, not only the negative opinions which hold us back, though also the good and POSITIVE. When we truly don’t care what others think and say about us, that’s when we achieve that freedom, and like Shane shared, ‘what others think of me is none of my business’ that’s when we gain true POWER and the energy of that power is connected to the Universe and that works it’s magic to manifest all our dreams effortlessly. Having the confidence to speak from my heart, giving myself the SPACE to do that, has been an awesome heart felt realization. I AM SO GRATEFUL to know this.

Sometimes what you’re looking for comes when you’re not looking for it!

Posted By Paulette A

It is truly amazing how this works!

There have been a number of things that have happened in my life when I wasn’t out looking for them. Of recent years it has come in the way of Personal Development.

After my second marriage breakdown I was wanting my life to change dramatically.
How? Well, that I wasn’t sure of. However the one certainty that I had was that my life needed changing.
At that time I was pretty devastated and very down.
After attending some talks during International Women’s Day I signed up to have an appointment with a Careers Coach and this is when the idea of becoming a Life Coach was born.

It was life changing for me. During my studies I learned so much about myself and so began my journey into Personal Development.
It continues today and the best part was when the Polaris Business Opportunity was presented to me.
I certainly wasn’t looking for another course to take although I always continued to update my knowledge and work on different areas of my life.
At my age I didn’t think I wanted to start a business either.

However what happened was I realized I could do something I had a passion for and at the same time have my own business.
I am so grateful every day for this business ‘coming to me’ because I can continue to learn and grow with the fantastic Beyond Freedom Evolution curriculm and at the same time earn an income.
How much better does it get?
Oh yes, it does get better because I can also help others do the same, WOW!

Clarity from today’s Polaris Global Team Call

Clarity!

Clarity!

Posted By Chris R

It has been said many times before that there is always a nugget to be picked up in all of the Polaris Global training calls.

This morning two guys did an awesome job on the Global Team Call – Paul and Simon.

I have always struggled with goal setting, going back many, many years to when I was in the life insurance industry and later when I was in real estate.

But Simon and Paul this morning gave me a clearer picture of what goal setting really is.

They told me, yes I thought they were talking directly to me personally, that I can’t make strategic decisions unless I know where I am going, know where I want to be.

I need a picture in my mind of my destination and my vision, my objectives, my purpose and my ultimate goal need to be crystal clear.

They used the analogy of me getting into my car and turning on the engine.

I don’t do it just for the sake of hearing the motor running.

I do it because I want to go somewhere.

I do it because I want to change my situation, achieve movement and motion, to arrive at a destination.

I might not consciously form a mental picture of where I want to end up, at the local Post Office for example, but I know this is where I want to go.

And, again not necessarily consciously, I map out a route that I am going to take to get there.

The post office is my ultimate destination or, to put it another way, it is my long term goal.

The twists and turns, the green lights and the easily found parking space will all chart my progress towards my destination and are my short term goals.

If I don’t get to these short term goals or way-points, then I am not moving forward toward my destination.

Sometimes I will strike a roadblock and have to make a course correction via a detour, but I am still progressing toward my destination.

As I reach these intermediate goals I gain a sense of achievement and if I am taking a trip in an area that I have never been in before, then I will feel a sense of excitement, maybe even adventure, as my destination gets nearer.

And as I gain confidence in my abilities, I will take a different route, maybe a more difficult one, the road less travelled.

This is progress with a capital ”P”.

I am sure I will think of this analogy every time I seat myself behind the steering wheel in the future.

And I am equally sure that when I sit down to reconsider my personal and business goals, the process will be a lot easier and my goals a lot clearer.

Thanks guys for a great call!

What Am I Waiting For?

No time to wait...

No time to wait...

Posted By Rose P

I had a great time on the sovereignty live cruise. On coming back from there, I set my mind to making changes and I started investing in myself and taking real steps toward my dream goals.

Now my world has just gone crazy and not in such a good way.
I have had to deal with health issues, not only mine but my daughters. Things have been going generally wrong in my business and in my personal life to the point where I am looking at it and saying to myself Why? I have had some weird things happen that are basically unexplainable. Obstacle after Obstacle keeps turning up in all I do. What happened to all those good vibes I walked off that ship with.

So all the questioning starts coming up, What am I doing wrong, why is this happening, am I doing the wrong thing here and is that the reason these obstacles are turning up or is it that the radical changes I want to make are creating confusion. I am so thankful that I have beyond freedom evolution to help me make sense of what it is I am creating here.

I would like to share the lyrics of a song I heard while I have been in this confused state. On hearing it, it just went straight through me resonating with where I am at right now. The song is “Maybe” by the Sick Puppies.

“Maybe”

Maybe I’m a dreamer
Maybe I’m misunderstood
Maybe you’re not seeing the side of me you should
Maybe I’m crazy
Maybe I’m the only one
Maybe I’m just out of touch
Maybe I’ve just had enough

Maybe it’s time to change
And leave it all behind
I’ve never been one to walk alone
I’ve always been scared to try
So why does it feel so wrong
To reach for something more
To wanna live a better life
What am I waiting for?
‘Cause nothing stays the same
Maybe it’s time to change

Maybe it’s hopeless
Maybe I should just give up
What if I can’t trust myself?
What if I just need some help?

Maybe it’s time to change
And leave it all behind
I’ve never been one to walk alone
I’ve always been scared to try
So why does it feel so wrong
To reach for something more
To wanna live a better life
What am I waiting for?
‘Cause nothing stays the same
Maybe it’s time to change

I can see what a wonderful opportunity Polaris is.
The training and support is excellent.
I know it is time to change so the question is What am I waiting for?

Thankful for more than Beyond Freedom Evolution

Posted By Chris R

Beyond Freedom Evolution teaches us that we should adopt an attitude of gratitude. And the benefits of doing so became immediately obvious to me when I started to apply it.

In an email that I get from “Starts at Sixty”, today’s articles included the one that follows, in which the writer talks about starting a daily gratitude journal.

And I love the Buddhist quote right at the end….

“What exactly are we grateful for? From where I’m sitting there’s a long list of things we should be grateful for but many of us are in such a rush trying to keep up with our idea of “life” that we just don’t see them

“Now I know many people are doing it tough and are probably wondering exactly what it is that they should be grateful for but I truly believe that we could all express a little gratitude daily. You see, we’re not talking about being grateful for a big house, a high paying job, beautiful jewellery or a fancy car. It’s the simple things in the present that we need to be focusing on.

“I love the idea of keeping a gratitude journal and in January this year I set out to hopefully complete one for 2014. On some days gratitude comes easily to me, other days I really have to think – which is the whole point of doing this exercise. It makes you aware that there are indeed many small things to be thankful for. Of course being grateful for family, friends, good health and a roof over your head are the big-ticket items that most of us would put at the top of our list. But try writing your journal daily without repeating yourself and you’ll find a myriad of simple pleasures are waiting to be discovered.

“My routine is to write in my journal before going to sleep each night. Some nights I crawl into bed feeling bushed and perhaps a bit miffed at the day’s events. I take out my journal and ponder the good stuff that the day brought. You can do it – simple things evoke real feelings of gratitude!

“After a very hot day recently I went to bed feeling completely exhausted and a tad ticked off with the heat. The feel of those cool cotton sheets as I slid into bed was heaven!

“On another occasion I’d had a rather ordinary day and was feeling a bit average. My daughter’s new puppy jumped into my lap and covered me in puppy kisses and my day suddenly turned around. A drive into the country to my hairdresser, playing silly games with my two year old nephew, a lovely meal cooked by someone else, water lilies flowering in the pond at the Botanic Gardens, a cup of tea in bed in the morning made by my hubby, the luxury of time to spend with family and friends – you see how easy it really is once you’re aware?

“Focus on the present, be mindful and it’s amazing what you’ll see! We spend too much time mourning the past and worrying about what might happen in the future. I recently heard a Buddhist monk explaining that we shouldn’t dwell on the past as it is part of our present and that worrying about the future is of no value as it is not yet here. Why is it that Buddhist monks always seem so calm and wise? I don’t know but I’m grateful for their advice!”

HOW I DECIDED TO JOIN POLARIS GLOBAL

My Journey to Business Owner

My Journey to Business Owner

Posted By Roberto K

Hello, I’m Roberto K from Guatemala C.A., married with the most wonderful woman on earth, we have two beautiful sons (15 and 18). As a kid I was raised in California USA. I consider myself to have the best of two worlds being “Latin” and growing up in the US; English was my first language for a while however after 35 years living in Guatemala Spanish became an important part of me. I studied Computer Science and graduated in 1987 at a local University.

I have worked in Sales 20+ years for major technology corporations (IBM, Microsoft, LG Electronics). During these years I learned about my passion “Working with Customers” and bringing value to them showing empathy to their needs and being part of their success.

Recently I lost my job (I´m currently 50). At this point like everyone else, I had bills to pay, my kids in school and college and suddenly found myself unemployed. My first reaction was to hunt for a new job, so I dedicated all my energy to contact headhunters and emailed my resume to all my contacts hoping a new opportunity would come soon.

I started my MBA in 2012 and one of my courses was about “Competitive Strategy”, the objective was to teach new entrepreneurs how to accept the challenge of creating a company based on a Business Model that would bring something totally new to the market with the following aspects: a. Uniqueness, b. Relevance, c. Sustainability and d. Innovation. I would add having Fun. All these five words needed to be part of a great concept “a Disruptive Business Model”.

This helped me to start thinking “Out of the Box”. My mind was viewing things from a different perspective.

This is how I found “Polaris Global”. During my Job Search activity (in a job board) I filled out my information, next I was contacted by my Polaris Global director, I hope she is reading this “Gracias”. Polaris Global was my answer to all the business aspects I mentioned above. I am new to Polaris Global but very excite to make this happen.

Best regards, Roberto K (orgullosamente latino)

SHANE KRIDER – THANK YOU FOR BEYOND FREEDOM EVOLUTION and POLARIS GLOBAL

Posted By Fay L

Some would say it’s uncanny how Beyond Freedom Evolution and Polaris Global came into my life, ‘at the right time’, although I know that ‘thoughts become things’! I have been constantly thinking about having my own home based business and over the Christmas break was talking to my youngest son about it nearly everyday, trying to think of what I could do….

It’s amazing, I thought I’d been following the right steps to achieving a successful, fulfilled life….I watched the DVD ‘The Secret’ on many occasions, I had a vision board that I looked at daily, I had 3 pages of affirmations & statements that I read every night and I have always had wins in my life. (Don’t get me wrong I wasn’t always positive…I was asked to leave home at 16, I’m a divorced single mum and recently retrenched from my corporate management position) however I decided long ago that I am worthy of an enriched life and so set about creating it or so I thought….

Thanks to Beyond Freedom Evolution, in only 4 weeks my positivity has risen to an optimal level, my goals and desires are clear and my vision board has been updated. I now know & understand that belief, vision and my efforts combined are instrumental in achieving my goals, not working for a boss 9 hours a day plus 2 ½ hours travel. I’m so excited to be working on my business with Polaris Global (and who wouldn’t be with the amazing compensation plan). The future looks awesome!
