The Power of Plan B

Plan BMany of my clients worry about not having enough money, especially during retirement. Our first strategy is to recognize the roots of their Fear-based scarcity mentality and exchange it for a Love-based abundance mindset. From that healthier, happier perspective, we develop an “Anabolic Plan A” for their future, one that is based in fueling their Core Energy with:

  • Love: I nurture and encourage myself in healthy ways.
  • Respect: I honor my choices. I do the best I can with the Love and Light I have at the time.
  • Curiosity: Instead of judging, I wonder why.
  • Compassion: I acknowledge and value my feelings.
  • Gratitude: I appreciate my life. Everything’s an opportunity.

Empowered by a more-constructive octane, they more frequently find themselves living in a state of generous, effortless, gracious Flow filled with:

  • Faith: I am confident that Love is the greatest power in the Universe;
  • Hope: Universal Love is always unfolding the Highest Good for all, in all, through all;
  • Prosperity: My Universal Source is excellent, limitless and reliable;
  • Peace: I relax into all that was, is and will be; and
  • Joy: Whatever my circumstances, I know Who I Am and Whose I Am.

Despite the best intentions, anyone can have a day when Hope is hard to find. For just such times, I recommend having an “Attractive and Affordable Plan B.” The mindset is not one of running away from Scarcity but embracing as-yet unexplored options for greater Prosperity. There are many incredibly desirable and cost-effective places to live. Magazines such as International Living specialize in helping you identify your particular dream destination.

I used to refer to this as the Belize Plan, but given the ever-expanding list of options, I now just call it Plan B. Whether you resonate to Bali, Ecuador, Italy, Costa Rica, Spain, Belize, Ireland, Panama or another paradise, there will always be a place where you can live comfortably while being of service to others.

About djwlifecoach

As a retired board-certified coach, author and Reiki master teacher, I continue to share hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world. What's love got to do with minimizing stress and getting unstuck? Everything! My book, "Choose Your Energy: Change Your Life!" (Hay House/Balboa Press 2013) shares my story and the stories of 10 of my clients along with my signature Discovery Framework. During my 30 years as an organization transformation consultant, I served as a senior partner in four of the world's largest, most prestigious global professional services firms. In 2005, I took a five-year sabbatical to find healing and peace because non-stop work had taken its toll. My recovery from burnout, including a sustained 80-pound weight loss and freedom from 10 years of debilitating depression, led to finding my purpose sharing hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world. Through healing and self-exploration, I discovered that loving yourself unconditionally is the key to transforming your personal life, your work and the world. With attention and intention, I learned to live in alignment with love through a wealth of energy-shifting tools and techniques that help me reduce stress, anxiety and overwhelm by releasing limiting beliefs, emotions and habits. My books, blog and radio episodes help individuals and organizations harness the transformative energy of love to turn unexplored possibilities into fulfilling realities and step into their greatness.

I live in Williamsburg, Virginia with my husband, Wilson, and the coaching cats who manage my life—SiddhaLee and Maisy Jane.
