What Are You Waiting For?

 


Have you been busy, getting ready to get ready?

Maybe you would like to learn to play the piano.  You research teachers in your area and maybe even call around for schedules but then you stop short of setting up your first session.

Why is this? Why is it so hard to get started?

It’s very simple. Fear.

Fear is a debilitating emotion that can keep you from reaching your full potential.

We all have fears and many of us have learned that until we conquer our fears, we are stuck.  We can’t start that project or that goal or achieve that which we so desire.

How do we start...

Do You Have A Road Map?

Imagine taking a trip without a map.

Imagine building a structure without blueprints.

Imagine going through life without a plan…

(I know, for a lot of us, this isn't imagination, right?)

 

Are you drifting through life, letting life happen TO you?

Does it make you anxious, maybe keep you up at night, knowing you have a higher purpose, but you just don’t know where to start? 

How do we get out of that existential "funk" and begin to create the life we want to live?

 

Crafting a life plan is not a simple task, and will not take an hour to complete.

You will...

The Consistent Common Thread Of Successful People?

 

If you knew what 500 of the world’s wealthiest people knew...

Would you do as they do?

Napoleon Hill, author of the bestseller "Think And Grow Rich," dedicates an entire chapter of the book to the practice of Persistence.  Your paradigms will shift when you consistently feed your mind with repetitive information.

Hill describes the four steps that lead to the habit of persistence as:

  1. A definite purpose backed by a burning desire for its fulfillment.

  2. A definite plan, expressed in continuous action.

  3. A mind closed tightly against all negative and discouraging influences,...

What Is The Key To Better Decisions?

Uncategorized Sep 13, 2018
 


Decisions are a mental activity every one of us engages in on a daily basis.  From deciding when to wake up, to what to eat, to how to spend our day, to where to spend our money, to whom to spend our time with... decisions are part of our daily life.

But just because we do it often, that doesn’t mean we are good at making decisions

Many of us make very bad decisions every day, and only a few of us make good decisions consistently.

Why is there such disparity in this?

What keeps us from making sound decisions? 

Did you know that you could virtually eliminate conflict...

Why So Serious?

 
How important is having a good sense of humor?
 
Don’t ask a "humor researcher." They're already fighting an uphill battle!
 
Laughter is one of the first things a newborn exhibits.
 
Try going an entire day without even a small laugh and see if you can – I bet you can’t.
 
People don’t typically, actively AVOID pleasure.
 
Typically, many of the decisions we make are based on HOW MUCH pleasure will come from our choices. 
 
Laughter is the best medicine.
 
We have all heard that saying.
 
And when things...

Is It Time For Some House Cleaning?

 

What does your closet look like?

Is it all tidy and color coordinated and arranged by season?

If so, move on… No need to read anymore.  :)

For the rest of us who have closets full of clothes from ten years ago that we will fit into one of these days – or that style will surely come back – or this is a classic – it will go with everything…

You know who you are…

Or maybe you can’t even close your closet because the shoes are spilling out onto the floor…

Life is like a closet

We hold onto past thoughts and emotions and we think if we...

Uncategorized Jul 26, 2018
 

Being thankful every day for what you have is a mind-altering experience.  Try this quick and easy exercise every day.  Wake up and immediately say what you are grateful for.  It could be as simple as another day on earth.  Your feet touching the ground. The ability to breath… or get more involved – and be grateful for a specific person, condition, thing, whatever it is in your life that you are grateful for. 

There are half full and half empty people on this planet.  The half full group has their glass filled with gratitude.  Gratitude is one...

Looking For A Change? Here's Where To Start

Uncategorized Jul 19, 2018
 

If the facts don’t fit the theory, change the facts. ~ Albert Einstein

I love that quote!

Change is that scary word that most people shy away from.  I don’t want to change. Why should I change?  Why doesn’t everyone else change to accommodate me?  If I change, then I will be out of my comfort zone.  Why change something that isn’t broken?

  • Change.

    Asking someone to change is like expecting the sun to not rise.  Isn’t it a pointless request?  Change comes from within.  Change is something we do with ourselves.  Only we can...

Three Key Steps To Changing Behavior

behavior Jun 01, 2018
 

Behavior defined can be a physical thing one does such as a morning routine and it can be non-physical such as replaying negative thoughts all day long.   A few behaviors are instinctual and built in while the rest is learned through meeting needs.  What this means is that our behaviors are motivated by our needs and therefore we can be manipulated as well as manipulate to have our needs met.

 So when we have negative behaviors and we want to change them, we find it isn’t always so easy because these learned behaviors that we exhibit are actually rather complex.
