Empowered Inside Out: How to Upgrade the Operating System Inside Your Head

by DeeAnn Lensen

Are you satisfied with your life, or do you see glimpses of your dream life just out of reach?

Many powerful human gifts that could be used to bring extraordinary joy to the user and those in contact with that user are squandered, lost forever, as millions opt to just get through life, rather than LIVE, REACH and CONTRIBUTE with every cell they have been entrusted with on this earth.

We robotically allow our minds to think random thoughts that generate equally random emotions, actions and even chemical changes in our bodies, such as increased cortisol, which causes accelerated aging and disease.

Sadly, this autopilot way of being is how most of us get through our lives. What would happen if you were able to program yourself to find joy and satisfaction thanks to a new operating system? Suddenly, rather than just getting through life, you could create the life of your choice while learning to use each day as a means of experiencing satisfaction and bringing joy to others.

Guess what? I discovered that we are still programmable at any age, but usually we don't know where to start, much less how to succeed in reprogramming ourselves for joy.

Mysterious system failure is reported to have ruined many a person's chance of reaching their potential. The most advanced systems designed to increase wealth, produce perfect health, guarantee beauty or get you married to a cutie are only effective if YOU embrace them effectively. This is why you need a system and a support community.

But there's more: none of the above will work if YOU don't believe you deserve to BE the person you are striving to be. Any program loaded into an operating system wrought with self sabotage and/or low self esteem 'viruses' will fail. After leading and coaching people for over twenty years in the direct marketing and spa industry I felt compelled to create a User Manual, which includes these 11 steps:

Step 1: Measure your aspirations against your current reality.

To successfully install a new program, you must first assess your current operating systems. Determine if the life path you are on is one that you chose, or the results of slap-dash habits. Understand what it takes to be the architect of your future.

Step 2: Look your gremlins in the eye.

Access whether or not you currently have enough space and energy to run your desired program. If you find blocks, take steps to free space. With the use of multiple exercises, muscle testing, and coaching, you can be guided to uncover a myriad of beliefs that you hold deep in your conscious and subconscious mind that control you.

Step 3: Adjust your default response.

Humans default to the negative. We naturally look for what's wrong or missing and, if we were cave men, it would keep us alive. Similarly, the ego wants to win at almost any cost, like a cave man saying, "If I don't win, I won't eat!" How do these traits serve you now?

Step 5: Understand fear.

Resistance to growth wears many masks and can be powerfully convincing. If you change your programs, you change your way of being, which can invoke fear in others. Similarly, you fear change because, you ask, is this new unknown way of operating worse than what you are living now?

Step 6: Mirror, Mirror.

We are attracted to people who have traits we value in ourselves. We're repelled by people with traits we dislike or fear in our own personality. Learn to "be the change you wish to see in the world." As a result, collect supporters who will help you make the life changes you desire.

Step 7: Talk yourself into healthy relationships.

We talk ourselves into and out of relationships every day.

Step 9: Entitle-itis.

Not all dependency is bad but, if one of your gremlins is, "I deserve to be taken care of," and no one is waiting in line for the job, you may be pushing people away with an entitlement mentality. Not to worry, great joy can be found in healthy dependence and independence.

Step 10: Say yes to life.

Once you've defined where you want to BE, and have utilized tools designed to reprogram your operating systems, it's time to look the universe in the eye, connect, and just say yes. This is a very important part of the life journey. It's where belief is either born or given new life. Without belief, there will be no fertilizer for the ideas and goals you have just planted.

Step 11: Give and it will be given unto you.

Once your gifts have been acknowledged and gently escorted into plain view, it's time to learn how to share them and, in doing so, leverage your chances for creating the full life you were intended to lead.
