1. To have miraculous things happen, figure out what you really want

I’m a big believer that you can’t get what you want if you don’t know what that is. Nebulous and undefined is not a roadmap. So I started this One Wild Life list. (Here’s how to make your own.) It’s filled with all kinds of things I want to do/experience while I’m still around.

For some of them, they were easy and I knew I could pull them off without much of a problem (buy a plane ticket, finish the work, play with ingredients in the kitchen, etc.).

But for others, I added to them to the list because I knew I wanted them even if I didn’t have any idea how I would get them. It didn’t matter to me how “impossible” they felt; all that mattered was that I wanted them for my life, so that was reason enough to include them.

2. To have miraculous things happen, say yes

If you want to have miraculous, heart-pounding things happen in your life, you’re going to have to say yes. There’s no way around it. The minute you say no, well, your journey down that particular path ends.

Take heart if you’ve said no: you can always change your mind and say yes again. And once you do, your journey down that path will begin again.

3. To have miraculous things happen, step out in faith

Stepping out in faith doesn’t require you to be fearless. It only requires two things:

  • You to be open and willing. Nothing new can come into your life when you’re closed off to it (see Step Two above).
  • You take a single step in the direction that you want to go. So take a deep breath, grab someone’s hand if you need to, and take a step out of your comfort zone.

4. To have miraculous things happen, keep going

Fear is the number one reason that people don’t go after what they most want to have/be/do/say. It’s the reason that people back down and say no and tuck themselves deep inside their comfort zones. It’s also the reason that people live lives that are unsatisfying to them.

To overcome fear requires one thing:

  • You keep going. It doesn’t matter how slowly you go. The only thing that matters is that you keep moving through the fear and you don’t stop. If you’ll just do that, you’ll come out victorious on the other side.

5. To have miraculous things happen, trust yourself

When you trust yourself, you will keep you moving forward no matter what gets thrown at you because you’ve got a rock-solid foundation (yourself).

  • Trust you know what you most want.
  • Trust you know what you need to do to get it.
  • Trust you can handle whatever comes your way because you are strong, tenacious, intelligent, brave, and more than capable of saving your own life.

6. To have miraculous things happen, trust the universe

There is some kind of force out there that makes things happen that you, yourself, couldn’t do. That force makes everything align so that:

  • opportunities come your way
  • people with expertise, encouragement, connections, etc. come into your life
  • you get what you need (money, guidance, support, etc.) when you most need it
  • and on the list goes.

I believe wholeheartedly that some kind of force exists because I’ve seen it work too many times in my life not to. Thing is, you’ve got to be moving and taking action in the direction you want to go for that kind of aligning magic to happen.

So trust and believe that the universe wants good things for you. Once you wholeheartedly believe that—the universe is a friendly place that wants me to succeed—well, that is the story you will live out in your life and you’ll find yourself getting opportunities that you, alone, couldn’t pull off.

My weight loss transformation & how it can help you have miraculous things happen in your life

You absolutely can break the diet cycle. I got free. Your life can be that way too.

I made my own path because I needed to get myself out of the crazy-making behavior I was having around food. I needed:

  • no more dieting.
  • no more restrictive eating.
  • no weighing and measuring food.
  • no off-limit foods.
  • no more judgment around food.
  • no more trying to figure out healthy eating or just what healthy foods to eat.
  • no more judging my self-worth based on the scale.
  • no more you’re-not-doing-it-perfectly diet rules that were only fueling my constant thinking about and obsession with food.

I needed to stop: searching for weight loss tips, wondering how to lose belly fat fast or how to lose weight fast, worrying about how to eat healthy or finding healthy snacks for weight loss, coming up with yet another healthy eating plan, trying to have quick weight loss, or forcing myself onto yet another weight loss diet. What I needed instead was to find, out of all the weight loss programs out there, the best weight loss program for me. Turns out, the best way to lose weight was to find out what works for me and do that.

  • I’ve lost 160+ pounds naturally by simply trusting myself and listening to my intuition (mindful eating and eating intuitively).
  • I have maintained that weight loss for 9 years and counting by trusting myself and listening to my intuition (mindful eating and intuitive eating).
  • I no longer have any eating disorders, including bulimia (bulimia nervosa) and binge eating disorder (compulsive overeating).
  • I no longer have a fear of food.

Just imagine what you could be doing with your life if you’d just commit to having your own before and after weight loss success story. You could be: following your own dreams and reaching your own goals, cultivating your own passions, and making both your inner and outer worlds a more blissful and peaceful place.

I got that for my life. I want it for yours. I will teach you how.
