Imagine if 2019 was the best year of your life….
Focus on habits
Autopilot habits = consistently done over time, creates automatic routine.
Problem is that if we don't set our habits up for success, we get stuck in our comfort zone on autopilot. Habits create neural pathways - paths of least resistance.
What is a neural pathway?
Why it’s hard to change.
Strategic action will help you develop a new habit that then will become your new autopilot.
Exercise/working out example.
It takes conscious effort to create new automatic habits.
If you want to create 2019 to be your most powerful business year, start now.

Today’s Topic: One strategy to implement, if you're feeling stuck.
All of us feel stuck sometimes - myself included.
Being stuck = unconscious fear that's blocking us from taking forward action.
Examples: Fear of success. Fear of failure. Fear of losing friends. Fear of outshining other people. Fear that we won't be liked. Fear that if we advance to the next level, we won't be able to handle the advancement.
The one thing that you need to do is take a step in the direction of the fear.
Joseph Campbell says, “The cave you fear to enter contains the treasure which you seek. “
I love this quote because to me it means that we need to take that step in the direction of our fears
because that's our guide post for how to grow and transform into something new and bigger.
Growth happens in the formation of a spiral cycle.
Every iteration you keep evolving and growing into the next, bigger, bolder, more...
Intro and why does maxing your potential matter?
Max potential pillars:
1. Personal Power
2. Connected Relationships
3. Mastering Your Money Mindset
This week’s topic is: ARE YOU FEELING UNDERVALUED IN RELATIONSHIPS?
Undervalued = feeling resentful, like other people are better than you, not knowing how to speak up.
The problem of feeling undervalued is an area where many people struggle. Could be in intimate relationships, at work, with your kids, or in friendships.
Rooted in holding yourself in the pit and the other people around you on a pedestal.
Dr. Demartini, one of my mentor’s philosophy.
This framework of thinking has to do with realizing that we all have equal value but if you recognize your value, you're going to devalue yourself and overvalue others.
You’ll put yourself in the pit and other people on a pedestal, which gives them the unequal power distribution in relationship.

Hello, growth-minded friends!
Dr. Amanda Barrientez here with ABi Coaching. Today I want to talk to you about THE CURSE OF THE COMFORT ZONE.
The reason I want to talk to you about this is because I hear so many people saying things like, “I'm fine.” “Life is going okay.” But they're longing for more. They're in a job where they know they deserve more. They want to experience more. They want to feel more. They want to thrive and feel alive…EVERY DAY!
They might be in a relationship where they feel like, oh, you know, it's fine. Everything's going well. Nothing's bad or broken down. But they don't feel the connected juice and fire that they used to feel when they started dating. Maybe they haven't had sex in months or they haven't gone on a special date to connect with each other in a long time.
Or it could be that people are making enough money at their job. They're getting go on vacations. They can put...

Today's topic is what to do when you're NEEDING INSPIRATION.
This is one of my all-time favorite quotes and it's proclaimed by most of the personal growth and development powerhouses. It was made famous by Viktor Frankl in his book, Man's Search for Meaning, where he wrote about how he fixed his mindset on his unique why in order to survive the Nazi internment camps during the Holocaust. If you haven't read it, buy it today. It is an absolute must read that will leave you deeply inspired!
Your why is your...
This is a common struggle among my coaching clients and was my own reason for stepping onto the path of personal growth and development. Unfortunately, we aren't directly taught any relationship skills in school - there aren't any required courses - so we figure out how to do relationship from the people around us. Sometimes this really helps and sometimes it really causes us to have relationship struggles - because RELATIONSHIPS ARE A SKILL and we need to learn relationship skills in order to be good at doing them.
I was in a 15 year marriage, and left the marriage by having an affair. Then my next relationship was challenging. I kept falling down and couldn't figure out how to do it!
Until one day, I realized that I'm the common denominator in my relationship issues. So, I took...

If you're someone who feels like - I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY, then this video is for you because I'm going to teach you the first critical step to help you build your wealth.
Well, maybe not everyone, but most people would agree that they want to have more money in the bank, and the people who say that they don't have enough money, yet want to be rich, often are the people who are stuck wishing, hoping, and dreaming, but they never make it big.
Why is this the case? I think it's because most people think that money and wealth building are a magical mystery that just happens to some people.
What they're not...

Today we're going to talk about how having a SCREW PERFECTION attitude will help you play bigger so you can maximize your potential.
We don't usually think about playing small as trying to be perfect, but let's look at some of the sneaky ways that perfectionism shows up in our lives.
Let's use the example of writing a book. Say you've been writing a book for years and you keep working on it and you keep working on it, but you tell yourself that it's taking you so long because it's such a big project.
Or let's say you were recently divorced and you want to get back in the...

The vast majority of us are overwhelmed with a lot on our plates and it's hard to know how to structure our day and week to get the most done so we can accomplish our goals.
For many years I was a Ph.D student and single mom. I remember one of my most intense days where I had so much on my plate…
There was a snowstorm and I had to get my kids to and from their schools and activities. This took four hours. I had a graduate seminar I...
