Hay House Writers Seminar in Sydney

Over the past weekend I had the amazing opportunity of attending the Hay House Writers Seminar in Sydney as I had been fortunate due to the help and support of many voting for me and had WON a free ticket to the event.
Talk about Awesome, I learnt so much and had many questions and thoughts answered in relation to my self-published soon to be BEST SELLING ‘4 Week Program!’ plus my marketing plan, my platforms, my websites and the way I am implementing my goals and book / program within the community.
The energy and vibration in the room was electric and I met so many wonderful friendly like minded people. I hung out with a lovely lady and made a new friend also a ticket winner being Melissa Gibson a psychic, we got along fabulously – the Butterfly Whisperer.
Now to finalise my Synopsis to present to Hay House!
Someone (or maybe more than one perosn) who attended the seminar will WIN a publishing package with them; I could be the next bestselling author accelerating my passion to “Get Australia Motivated!”. I hope so as I can feel it within my whole being!!

I had the pleasure of meeting and having a photo with the authors in order (the 1st four even before the seminar started!) as per my Law of Attraction photo print out (pretty powerful – reminds me of my Law of Attraction Donald Trump picture here) and the rest throughout the two days. I was also on the print out as a featured author as I will be speaking at the seminar in the future (L.O.A. at work). I even had a photo taken on stage with my book to assist my Law of Attraction processes! All the authors had such inspiring stories and were great at public speaking. Anyway the images in the gallery include:

-       REID TRACY President and CEO of Hay House Publishing the largest publisher of self empowerment books, cds, dvds and empowering live events in the world.
-       LEON NACSON Managing Director of Hay House Australia, and the author of nine books. His current International Best Seller ‘A Stream of Dreams’ has been translated into four languages.
-       PAM GROUT author of ‘E Squared’ – (who signed my book I bought from home and told her about my bean experiment lol I learnt to look at things from a different perspective – story here.)
-       BRONNIE WARE –author of “The top five regrets of the Dying”
-        MEGAN DALLA-CAMINA author of “Getting Real About Having It All”
-       MARTINA SHEEHAN & SUSAN PEARSE authors of “Wired for Life”
-       JESS AINSCOUGH author of “Make Peace With Your Plate”
-       JULIEANNE CAIRNS author of ‘The Seven Money Myths’ being released by Hay House in September 2015

Some of the Awesome quotes from the weekend:
-       “A blog is an important place to start. Show up every day and write a blog post with no agenda other than to be of service.” – Jess Ainscough
-       “Write every day, even if no-one is going to read it. Practice your voice.” - Jess Ainscough
-       “Whenever we’re rejected, it’s always because the universe is holding something better for us.” - Jess Ainscough
-       “There’s an entire world of natural healing out there. We can love food that loves us back.” - Jess Ainscough author of Make Peace With Your Plate
-       “Teach what you need to learn.” - Reid Tracy
-       “If it’s worth writing, it’s worth writing. Write because there is a market, because you have a muse. Write for yourself and write regardless. Just show up.” - Megan Dalla-Camina
-       “The more narrow your niche is, the less followers you need to be successful.” - Reid Tracy
-       “The point of a platform is for you to connect with people who care about what you have to say. This takes time, there are no shortcuts.” – Reid Tracy
-       “Focus in on one core audience that you’re trying to build. Know who you’re trying to reach. Ask people why they’re being referred to you to try to figure out who this is. Build an avatar for your audience based on gender, age, interests.” - Reid Tracy
-       “Books are intimate things. They’re one of the only things apart from your husband/wife/partner that you take to bed with you.” - Reid Tracy   (or if you are me it’s your Laptop to listen to Reid and Louise Hay lol)
-       “Ask yourself, what makes my book so different? So interesting? Don’t write to be a best seller. Write for and from your heart, not your wallet. Write something you want to be remembered by.” – Leon Nacson
-       “The hard part about writing a book is getting people to read it.” - Reid Tracy

After the seminar I ran 11.5km around Sydney for some exercise, even got my weekly stair runs in at the ‘Oprah’ House,  promoting the Fraser Coast Health & Fitness Community Action Group. I received quite a few looks and comments, it appears fluro yellow socks and runners are not very common in Sydney!
“Need A Hand?”
We need to have at least 1,000 people doing my ‘4 Week Program’ to create a flow on effect to change 20,000 people to achieve the goal of dropping the obesity / overweight statistic from 70% to 50% on the Fraser Coast! (this could be executed in as short a time frame as 12 months!) Just imagine how happy, energetic, motivated and productive everyone would be! Too Exciting! (Then I / We can start on the rest of the 63% of Australia!)

10487281_680988041991592_2288476146231887826_nJeanette Maynes and Carol McNaughton have joined forces together to put into action our passion for creating lifestyle change. We want to let people know there are those of us in the community that are vested in and extremely passionate about showing and teaching others a new way of life that is healthy, exciting, fun and will make you happy! We want to share with you our enthusiasm, motivation, encouragement, support, our life experience on this journey, our extensive knowledge and most of all to show you the Power of the Mind!

photo 1Thursday the 14th August saw the launch of Fraser Coast Health and Fitness Community Action Group. After months of us talking about ideas to convey our message to the Fraser Coast broader community and also realising that those in the health and fitness industry already proactive are still only just talking about what should or shouldn’t be done. We couldn’t see where a proactive interaction with the community was happening. So we are making this interaction come to life and now a real reality. With keeping to our way of
10603541_679985385425191_7122032113163858206_nthinking, we will focus purely on the positive thoughts, actions and processes. Nothing negative here, do not want to attract it. ‘Law of Attraction’ working here. What you think, you will achieve, what you want, you will do!

“We MUST Visualise – See your life as you want it. You must visualise this in your mind and see it as already completed to have success! See your life, your home, your figure, your fitness, your finances, your relationships, your education, your goals as already being accomplished! The law of attraction doesn’t know or care whether you’re imagining something or whether it is real. The law of attraction receives those images as though you were actually living them, and it must return them to you.”


A quote of some sort here perhaps STATISTICALLY: The FRASER COAST has NINE of the FATTEST suburbs in Queensland! plus 70% of the Wide Bay is Obese or Overweight! The Wide Bay region also has one of the highest levels of diabetes in Queensland. We want to make a change to the excessively high statistics on poor health within our community.

10469218_677169005706829_7849952730221950490_nOk I hear you saying now, “WHAT’S DIFFERENT WITH THIS GROUP, WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO TO HELP ME!” Awesome question, so let us explain ……………… Today is the first day of the rest of your life, so Let’s Get Excited!

Our objective is combat the 70% obesity that plagues the Fraser Coast. So seeing as the population is 100,000 people of the Fraser Coast that’s 70,000 overweight or obese people that require our help.
We have a desire and are passionate about 10599128_683753285048401_6702237048320214612_nreaching out to the 70% overweight population, but we cannot do it on our own. This is why we need everyone to become involved at the same level of passion. We want to provide knowledge, education, events, classes, activities and healthy food choices along with retail shopping for 70% of the population that needs our help. The services we seek collectively are already taking care of their own health and fitness so we need to join forces and pass this vital life skill on to those that do not know where to start.
We need all modalities of massage therapists, personal trainers, life coaches, councillors, gyms, doctors, physiotherapists, chiropractors, naturopaths, USQ and TAFE to teach courses, healthy restaurants, fitness instructors, sports clothing retail outlets, sports clubs and the list goes on.

With 70,000 people to help there is no need to compete with each other, we need to become a team and promote each other’s services. The weight loss journey is ongoing and varied in every individual, it doesn’t stop when you are fit, it turns into a life style. We both personally choose to pay to utilise a gym, buy healthy choices at food outlets, pay for much needed massages, pay to participate in local sports events / runs, pay for barges to go run on Fraser island and pay for beer afterwards, pay for new runners, sports clothes and equipment – this is all money we are injecting back into the local community via our healthy lifestyle every week. So could 70,000 other members of the community creating jobs, profit, more energy and more productivity.
Together we will network and unite with each other to empower the Fraser Coast Health & Fitness Community Action Group.

E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality

The Superhero Principle – e2

Your Thoughts & Consciousness Impact Matter:
Recently I conducted an experiment from the book I’m reading e2 with the help of my Dad.
I have attached the experiment info, but what I did was will the beans on the LEFT side of the carton to grow quicker than the right.
The more energy aimed at the beans on the left apparently the quicker they will grow.
“With my innate energy, I will that the beans on the left side of the egg carton grow faster than the beans on the right!”

The results and what I learn’t:


Two beans sprouted on the left and only one on the right (on day eight, three beans had sprouted on the left and still only one on the right). So which side grew more?

Well the left grew more, as we were focusing on the left, but they were supposed to grow the tallest so really the right won this experiment.

Then I looked at my rules again “With my innate energy, I will that the beans on the left side of the egg carton grow faster than the beans on the right! … is not two beans faster than one?
I now realise it doesn’t say anything about height …. ha ha science always setting quantum lessons to figure out!

Perception is everything, how we see things in our mind may not be how they really are. We may stress ourselves out for no reason at all because of our mind and it’s beliefs.
Look at something from a different angle or perception and it could be a complete SUCCESS!!! Like my Beans on the LEFT!!

The Four Agreements

I so love this image.


I have removed all negative gossipers from my proximity ( actually they themselves have drifted from my circle of friends as I chose to grow as a person ). In replace I attract positive kind people that like to discuss life and exciting ideas not people.

I have become pretty good at this

I always communicate with others especially when they hurt me or let me know if I have upset them. I always try to correct a miss understanding. It is sad when you approach someone several times to communicate, and they don’t, for it is then I realise the hurt was intentional.  Well it’s not that sad, I just revert my thinking to #2!!!

My life goal! I only ever compete with myself.  And choose to lead by example! It’s very important to ‘Walk the Talk!”

If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away.
If he doesn’t want you, nothing can make him stay. Stop making excuses for a man and his behavior. Allow your intuition (or spirit) to save you from heartache.

Stop trying to change yourself for a relationship that’s not meant to be. Slower is better. Never live your life for a man before you find what makes you truly happy. If a relationship ends because the man was not treating you as you deserve then heck no, you can’t “be friends”. A friend wouldn’t mistreat a friend.

Don’t settle. If you feel like he is stringing you along, then he probably is. Don’t stay because you think “it will get better.” You’ll be mad at yourself a year later for staying when things are not better. The only person you can control in a relationship is you. Avoid men who have a bunch of children by a bunch of different women. He didn’t marry them when he got them pregnant, why would he treat you any differently? Always have your own set of friends separate from his. Maintain boundaries in how a guy treats you. If something bothers you, speak up. Never let a man know everything. He will use it against you later.

You cannot change a man’s behavior. Change comes from within. Don’t EVER make him feel he is more important than you are. Even if he has has more education or in a better job. Do not make him into a quasi-god. He is a man, nothing more nothing less.

Never let a man define who you are. Never borrow someone else’s man. If he cheated with you, he’ll cheat on you. A man will only treat you the way you ALLOW him to treat you. All men are NOT dogs.

You should not be the one doing all the bending… Compromise is two way street. You need time to heal between relationships. There is nothing cute about baggage… Deal with your issues before pursuing a new
relationship. You should never look for someone to COMPLETE you. A relationship consists of two WHOLE individuals. Look for someone complimentary… not supplementary.

Dating is fun… Even if he doesn’t turn out to be Mr. Right. Make him miss you sometimes… When a man always know where you are, and you’re always readily available to him ~ he takes it for granted. Never move into his mother’s house. Never co-sign for a man. Don’t fully commit to a man who doesn’t give you everything that you need. Keep him in your radar but get to know others.

Scared of being alone is what makes a lot of women stay in relationships that are abusive or hurtful: Dr. Phil says… You should know that: You’re the best thing that could ever happen to anyone and if a man mistreats you, he’ll miss out on a good thing. If he was attracted to you in the 1st place, just know that he’s not the only one. They’re all watching you, so you have a lot of choices. Make the right one. Ladies take care of your own hearts… ❤

Unleash The Power Within

Last weekend I participated in one of the most amazing experiences of my life, ‘Unleash The Power Within’, a 4 day seminar with Tony Robbins in Sydney.

The main reason of attending was to firewalk which we did on the first day on coals between 1,200 and 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit.

I’d seen a picture on Tony’s website of Oprah doing the fire walk and I though, if Oprah can do it, I can!

I didn’t feel any heat what so ever, must of had my mind focused!

From then on what happened was so profound.

I completely reprogrammed my mind and have removed negative experiences from my life / childhood and created a new timeline.

I realised I was living my life with excellent standards but to reach the next level in life you must have ‘OUTSTANDING’ Standards which is only a 2mm gap you need to close. This will be beneficial in all aspects of my life especially my business.

On the last day we heard about nutrition which I also learnt some very profound new information and found this extremely interesting as I am studying to be a personal trainer.
I am now on day 7 of a DETOX Tony put us on and am loving it!!! No alcohol, caffeine and an alkaline diet + a few other new healthy & positive habits to incorporate.

This seminar was such a precious gift I gave to myself, the information was priceless and the results truly invaluable!!
Thank you Tony, you certainly did create value and more than expected!!!

Please, please, please start teaching your program in schools you could revolutionise the world even more by programming correct mind, body and nutritional habits from an early age!!!

Some other information I learnt from my notes:

- Emotion is created by Motion.

- Put yourself in a PEAK STATE!

- Who you spend life with is who you become.

- People lives are a direct reflection of the expectations of their peer group.

- Find a peer group that has higher expectations that your own.

- Find a team that is going to challenge you.

- Every single person has 2 primary fears: 1. You are not good enough  2.  You won’t be loved

- The only thing that stops you getting what you want is the story you tell yourself.

- Problems & Happiness have no relationship.

- Wire yourself for certaintly and you will find the skills

- We live what we hold in out subconscious

- Secret to wealth and happiness; to be a team player

- Treat people well who treat your poorly

- Life is about LOVE

- Proximity is Power!

- “If I can’t, then I MUST!”

- The secret of life, STANDARDS!

- Want to change your life then raise your standards.

- Raise your standards means turns your shoulds into musts.

- Compete with yourself.

- See things completed in your mind first.

- How much you earn or who you are in a relationship with comes down to your beliefs or values.

- Our rules & values can make it impossible to feel good.

- More joy = less or better rules

- When you are grateful there is no anger or fear.

- The secret to HAPPINESS is PROGRESS!

- I am not what I eat, I am what I digest & assimilate.

- 5mins of anger suppresses your immune system for 6-7hours

- Stress is the basis of what makes the body break down.


If you want to know the tools and strategies for an OUTSTANDING LIFE, book your spot for the 2014 seminar, it will change your life forever!!!! Click here to book!

- Learn the secret to peak performance that Anthony Robbins has used to transform the world’s elite athletes, entertainers, and business leaders.

- Discover how to break the unconscious fears that are holding you back.

- Storm across a bed of hot coals between 1,200 and 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. (You don’t have to, but you’ll want to!) Once you start doing the impossible (or at least what you thought was impossible), you can conquer the other fires of your life with ease.

…You’ll test and amaze yourself. But, most of all… you’ll grow.

The purpose of life is to be happy? Right or Wrong?

Thank you Mr Pitt for your wise words last night on Sixty Minutes, people put too much pressure on themselves believing you must be happy all day everyday!!
Content is good!

TARA BROWN: That’s OK. I guess the point is are you happy or are you unhappy?

BRAD PITT: I think happiness is overrated, truthfully. I do. I think sometimes you’re happy, sometimes you’re not. There’s too much pressure to be happy. I don’t know. I don’t really give a shit. I know I will be at times and I know I won’t be at times. Satisfied, at peace, those would be more goals for myself.

TARA BROWN: So, is Brad Pitt content today?

BRAD PITT: Content. OK, I will go with content. Uh, I dare say so. I probably won’t be next week.

But then you will be the week after?

BRAD PITT: But then I will be the week after, so I’m content with that.

What is happiness or success to you? Pleasure or Pain?

“Successful people admire other successful people; unsuccessful people resent them. If you view wealthy people as bad in any way, you can never be rich, because how can you be something you don’t like?” - T. Harv Eker

“Happy people admire other happy people; unhappy people resent them. If you view happy people as bad in any way (no matter what it is to the individual that makes them happy or successful; family, community work, achievements, money, career, their looks, their friends….), you can never be happy, because how can you be something you don’t like?”

Who’s to say what is real and not real, or important or not important, successful or not successful to them but the individual themselves with what they know in the present moment?

Is it OK to be happy, successful and have money as long as long as you do not RELY on this for inner happiness?
The Dalai Lama is one of the happiest people and his organisation one of the wealthiest in the world, having won numerous awards and is surrounded by luxury, people pay top dollar to listen to him speak about inner peace … yet his life is based on Three Main Commitments for his inner happiness and not the above.

There are so may ways to feel rich inside.

What is happiness or success to you? Pleasure or Pain? And who is the judge ….. you??? Do you make conscious decisions? or follow the opinions of others?

[Anthony Robbins]

Who do you feed?

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, “My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all.

One is Evil – It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good – It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked the grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee replied, “The one you feed.”

Live below the line!

How cool is this, if I wasn’t going on holidays for two weeks I would SO do this!!!!!! Always next year!

Live Below the Line is an incredible new awareness and fundraising campaign that’s making a huge difference in the fight against extreme poverty.  

“Join thousands of Australians Living on $2 of food a day for 5 days and help fight extreme poverty.”
If Hugh Jackman can do it, I could do it!

$10 for groceries for 5 days, hhhmmmmmm I think I would require frozen vegies, lots of bread (fills me up), pasta, eggs & some oats.

The week of Live Below the Line is a week like no other.

You Can Heal Your Life! by Louise Hay

I have finally found what I would call my BIBLE!

…. something that makes clear and concise spiritual and life sense to me! Finally!

Beginning my spiritual journey over five years ago, when I finally realised I can make choices and changes in my life, I had heard of Louise Hay but never picked up her books.

OMG her philosophy based on forgiving your past, reprogramming our negative and self destructive though patterns and learning to love ourselves is universal to every human being!

We are each responsible for all of our experiences.
Every thought we think is creating our future.
The point of power is always in the present moment.
Everyone suffers from self-hatred and guilt.
The bottom line for everyone is,
“I’m not good enough.”
It’s only a thought, and a thought can be changed.
We create every so-called illness in our body.
Resentment, criticism and guilt are the most damaging patterns.
Releasing resentment will dissolve even cancer.
When we really love ourselves, everything in our life works.
We must release the past and forgive everyone.
We must be willing to begin to learn to love ourselves.
Self-approval and self-acceptance in the now are the key to positive changes.
When we really love ourselves, everything in our life works.

I have been learning abit about Buddhist meditation but feel being brought up Catholic and finding that too constricting in my life I don’t really want to take on another religion at this stage plus focusing on different breathing patterns and counting colours associated with calm abiding meditation was not especially what I was looking for. But I agree with Louise’s comments on meditation and think I will give that ago:

Meditation in any of its forms is a wonderful way to quiet the mind and allow your own “knowingness” to come to the surface. I usually just sit with my eyes closed and say, “What is it I need to know?” and then I wait quietly for an answer. If the answer comes, fine; if it doesn’t, fine. It will come another day.

This is another concept I like and see a lot of people struggling with:

So many of us feel that money is the most important thing in our lives and that we could not live without it. This is not true…. Our breath is the most precious substance in our lives and yet we totally take for granted that our next breath will be there. If we did not take another breath, we would not last three minutes. Now if the Power that created us has given us enough breath to last for as long as we shall live, can we not trust that everything else we need will also be supplied?

Being brought up Catholic and taught as a child that sex before marriage is a sin, I also absolutely love this philosophy now that I am free to chose what I believe is right for my body and values…

Who told you to deny any part of your body? Certainly not God. Our sexual organs were created as the most pleasurable part of our body to give us pleasure. To deny this is to create pain and punishment. Sex is okay, it is glorious and wonderful. It is as normal for us to have sex as it is for us to breathe or eat.

Just for a moment try to visualise the vastness of the Universe. It is beyond our comprehension. Even our top scientists with their latest equipment cannot measure its size. Within this Universe there are many galaxies.

In one of these smaller galaxies in a far-off corner, there is a minor sun. Around this sun a few pinpoints revolve, one of which is called Planet Earth.

I find it hard to believe that the vast, incredible intelligence that created this entire Universe is only an old man sitting on a cloud above Planet Earth … watching my genitals!

This book is also amazingly illustrated by Joan Perrin Falquet!
I thrive on colour and this version of the book is full of it, creating a positive happy vibe.

Reading this book feels to me like what I think winning the Lottery would feel like!!!!
I hope you feel the same when you read it! x
Don’t delay like I did!

Thank you Louise, all my love Jeanette xoxo
