    Why does it seem as if people are always holding on to their idea of who we were instead of who we are?Why can’t people see us for who we are as of today, and let go of any conceived notions of our past?I’ve done it myself, with others.  Most of us have a hard time letting go of our specific thoughts about someone, doubting that they could ever change.  When we look at them, we only think of what stands out for us which may have been terrible, or draining, or painful… but we rarely allow our mind to wrap around the idea that they are not whom they used to be.

  • Make Your Own Basics

    The Right Question
    James de Garmo
    17 Jan 2015 | 2:17 pm
    Cook it first, maybe? Or is that not a “basic”? If you’ve ever tried to master anything, you’ve learned the importance of “the basics”.  And there are a few things about the basics that it’s important to remember, re-learn, or learn the first time if you never discovered them. I’m going to share it a little anecdote here.  It concerns a monk who went to study martial arts.  There are many variations of this, but I’ll simplify it. For many months, the monk’s teacher told him to stand at a large bowl of water and slap the surface…

    Fear is nothing more than an obstacle that stands in the way of progress. In overcoming our fears we can move forward, stronger and wiser within ourselves.F.E.A.R. is False Evidence Appearing Real. Fear is a self-created feeling created from an imaginary belief based on the illusion of separation.Many people have fears about all kinds of things. The greatest ones may be dying, it may be rejection or it may be the commitment in relationships.Fear, though, is never in the present moment. Fear is either in the past or in the future.

The Right Question will be available for purchase on Smashwords and Amazon soon, but instead of providing an excerpt in the listing I’m publishing it on my site.  I gave it its own page here but am publishing a post about it as well since posts are included in various feeds (such as my corner of Alltop).

    Have you ever experienced that awkward moment when you see a group of people you know, maybe at a party, and you avoid them? You don’t look them in the eyes, you are nervous and scared. You feel inferior to them.How do you stop avoiding people and start accepting yourself?Basically, people who don’t accept themselves is because they try too hard to be liked by other people. But the truth of the matter is that when other people love you, it is not a prerequisite for inner wellness.When you accept yourself fully, that is the only prerequisite for inner wellness; because it all starts with…

    “There is no greater gift you can give or receive than to honor your calling. It’s why you were born. And how you become most truly alive.” Oprah The path to our calling is an evolving process. The path to my calling has taken years. I started my legal career as a lawyer and believed that was my calling in life but I soon found out it wasn’t. I’ve transitioned careers from law to policy to politics to community organizing. Each career change has brought me closer to my life’s calling. Today, I coach others to discover and stay true to their calling. Why? Because I believe we are…

    This month is the 18 month anniversary of my website and blog. In September of 2013 I finally launched what I had always dreamed of: my online wellness business. Coming from Corporate America, this was a scary thing. I used to keep a Mark Twain quote up in my cubicle. I can remember staring at it during stressful afternoons, and daydreaming of a life outside of the “normal” 9-5: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your…

    Okay, let’s admit it. Life sucks! You often utter these words, you might have said it a number of times in a day that, “My Life really sucks.” I’m amazed by people who are so dissatisfied with their lives it's as if they've never had anything positive ever happen. They are not at all contented with the things they own, their relationships, the food they are eating, the clothes they are wearing, the house they are living in, jobs they are doing and there are ‘n’ number of things of which they are so ungrateful for. And I’m sorry to say, you too fall in the same category.

    “You can, you should, and if you’re brave enough to start, you will.”  - Stephen King In many ways your daily rituals define who you are and where you are headed. For most people, some routines are rewarding while others prove to be cumbersome and extremely tedious. So does this mean eliminate routines all together? Not exactly. Fortunately, there is a way to maintain self-discipline while still spicing up your daily rituals. Instead of trudging through a monotonous workout plan or job assignment you can learn the art of fulfilling a task while still enjoying the process itself. Part…

  • What Makes a Great Leader? Part 3

    Darren Hardy
    24 Feb 2015 | 8:00 am
    To conclude our series on leadership, I feel it only fitting to conclude with another example of one of my greatest leadership heroes. One of the greatest leaders I think the world witnessed, during our lifetime at least, is Nelson Mandela. Nelson Mandela's life story has long since become a legend, one that transcends borders, race, language, or culture. It would be absurd--let alone disrespectful to Mandela's achievements--to suggest that the issues you and I face as a business leader are as grave as apartheid, or that the stresses you and I encounter can ever compare…

    Last week I shared a story of confidence and humility to illustrate the two most important attributes of being a great leader and strengthening the influence you have with others. To continue our theme of leadership, I’m going to share with you further leadership insights from several of my friends who many thousands of people pay big bucks to learn from—Mr. John C. Maxwell, Robin Sharma, and Brian Tracy. The answers and insights that I will be sharing with you today from each of these world-renowned leadership experts all revolve around these three questions: 1.

    Great leaders are the backbone of our society, the foundation of everything from families, communities, spiritual organizations, major corporations to entire countries. I’d like to point out what I think are two of the most important attributes of a powerful and influential leader through the example of one of the greatest leaders the world has ever known—Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln did the impossible as a leader.  I am not just talking about reuniting a country ravaged by civil war.  He combined two traits as a leader that are seemingly incompatible…

    Today I am going to give you what I consider THE Secret Source Code of Achievement. Most people won’t tell you this. Why? Because one, they don’t know what’s REALLY running their motor. They THINK it’s for all these projected altruistic motives, but the REALITY is it is rooted in something much more raw and profound. So I ask you, what do you think ignites motivation? Come on now, I mean the REAL answer—not the cutesy ones written on motivational posters and coffee mugs. Why do some people try so hard, fight so intensely and strive so…
  • Time to Get Vulnerable

    Darren Hardy
    27 Jan 2015 | 8:00 am
    When you hear the term leader, most likely an array of adjectives come to mind. Some may include courageous, strong, powerful, assertive, and so on. Rarely would you think of vulnerability as a trait equating with leadership. Those within leadership positions in a company may even believe that displaying signs of vulnerability to your team is a sign of weakness. But I’m here to tell you that view is wrong. And they couldn’t be more mistaken. In reality, vulnerability is a strength. All great leaders have vulnerability. So, in order to help you grow into a more powerful…

Based on what is going on the novels, I would say that the stories are set in the 1800s. Written by Robert J Thomas, the author will not win any book awards for these books because there isn’t much depth to the stories, although there is depth to the character, Jess Williams. I have read about seven of the 36 books so far in the series, and I do so when I need to engage in mindless reading. I am going through a rough patch, trying…

    “If you don’t like something change it; if you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.” – Mary Engelbreit I know a lot of people who don’t like changes in their lives. They prefer to stick to their familiar life, with the same habits and behavior, the same job, and the same house. They fear change. I also know people who love and welcome change, and are not afraid of it. Actually, I think the middle way is to be preferred. This is my opinion.

Without it, we would be like lost sheep, wandering aimlessly in the fields.

    Remez Sasson

    A few days ago, I read how young elephants are trained in India. The young elephant is tied to a tree. It tries to free itself, but since it is not strong enough, it cannot get loose. After trying for a few times, and discovering that it cannot get loose, the elephant accepts the situation. Afterwards, when the elephant grows and becomes big and strong, it doesn’t try again to get itself loose, even though now, it is strong enough to pull and tear the rope easily. The elephant learned that it cannot free itself, and therefore, it never tries again. It believes that it’s not…

You are not expected to deliver the same keynote speech anywhere. A famous speaker may be invited to three conventions on innovation and technology.

    As a leader, you want to speak fluently. You want your ideas to flow smoothly to your audience. Anything that will hinder the flow must be eliminated. Mannerisms hinder the flow of communication. Oftentimes, it diverts the attention of your audience from your message to mannerisms. There are physical mannerisms. There are thought mannerisms. And there are verbal mannerisms like ahs and Ums. All of these mannerisms can be managed through practice. I think there are people who believe that ahs and ums are cool.

The only exception is when you are silently talking to yourself. It is not public speaking that you conquer, but the fears, real and imagined, that you associate with it. Most of us fear the judgement of others. We assumed that everyone who listens to us measures us.

    As Shakespeare noted, we are subject to numerous “slings and arrows of outrageous fortune” and the “heart-ache and thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to.” But many people also suffer abuse and traumas that go beyond those “natural shocks.”  Learning how to regulate emotional reactions to trauma and abuse is important for anyone, but essential for sensitive and creative people. Psychologists who help people deal with the consequences distinguish two kinds of trauma. The category of “big T trauma” is associated with Post-traumatic Stress…

  • Can You Handle Tough Interview Questions?

    25 Feb 2015 | 12:01 am
    Can you handle tough interview questions? Have you ever been in an interview and the interviewer asks you an off the wall question to see how you think?  Every interview should have these questions and the good ones always do!  Interviews are opportunities for the employer to learn about you and demonstrate your skills to convince them you are the right person.  How do you prepare for them? What do you do? Can you prepare for something when you do not know the question or the answer?  It is very difficult and maybe impossible.  What do you do?  I think it is a little like sports, you…

    Is networking over for job seekers? A few years ago, I read an article called ”Has Networking Become a Waste of Time for Job Seekers” on discussing the new way of networking.  Each year new college graduates enter the job market. What should they do to get their first professional job?  Social media or face to face networking? Here are some online resources Interviewing on campus, internships, or online job boards? The article suggests social media can help students be seen and heard in their target industry and by their target employer. Things have…

    In this weeks guest post Julie Crowley focuses on that subject of your niche. Why do we have to niche our services? By Julie Crowley I know that the general advice is to niche your business services so that clients can find you (/me) and ‘we’ stand out from ‘the crowd’.   But which crowd? I am pretty sure that most if not all of us have, at one time or another, questioned this aspect of our ‘business’ (versus service provision).   Do you agree?  Should you and I niche to satisfy the marketing advisors? But maybe it isn’t about the clients, or the marketers or about our…

  • The Multipotentialite Morning: How to Work on All of Your Projects Before Lunchtime Every Day

    Jo Moore
    9 Feb 2015 | 4:00 am
    As a multipotentialite, my huge would-like-to-learn list is pretty overwhelming. Add to that my would-like-to-brush-up-on list and it’s no wonder I always feel guilty for neglecting my interests and not making progress with my projects. It’s hard to find a balance between work and play. And while drawing up a schedule to try and strike a healthy balance is a great tactic, when either the “work” or the “play” part of your life contains more than just a few activities, it can seem like there’s never going to be enough time in the week for everything. I recently started a new…

Nonspecialist, she refused restriction, scorned the limiting identity of expert. She would rather have been considered a collector, connoisseur, sad pervert–anything but an academic.” -Wayne Koestenbaum, writing about author, Susan Sontag We so often view “expert” as the goal, not recognizing the restrictions it imposes. You don’t need to be an expert to do brilliant work. You don’t need to be an expert to be…

This is a live class that I’m teaching with Michelle Nicholaisen starting in mid-February. I’m really excited about it.

    Like a kid raiding a candy store, I’ve found that it’s all too easy to amass a huge heap of delicious projects to gorge on. Unfortunately, like that kid who will more than likely end up feeling queasy from eating all that candy, I recently discovered that my eyes are bigger than my belly. In the mad rush to satisfy my multipotentialite craving to to push forward on all my shiny new projects, I realised I’d overcommitted. I’d overcommitted my time, energy, brain power, and every other resource at my disposal. You may well find this scenario very familiar. You too may…

    Emilie, I found Puttylike today while searching the web for advice on how to settle down and focus on just one interest in life. I’ve struggled with this ‘problem’ for as long as I can remember– having varied, multiple interest and goals and cycling through them on a regular basis. It’s has caused me much anguish throughout my life, since I thought there was something truly wrong with me. I just never stopped to think that there were others out there like me. Nor did it ever occur to me that maybe it was okay to be this way. Just reading the website for 30…

  • How To Live Like A Snake

    Stephen Guise
    20 Feb 2015 | 9:55 pm
    Nice eyes (for a snake). Snakes aren’t found atop the “favorite animal” list of many people any person, but we can learn from their slithery ways. About a dozen times per year, snakes shed their skin and leave their old skin on the ground for someone else to clean up (I’m looking at you, park ranger). One way to live like a snake is to be messy and make other people clean up after you. Call me an optimist, but I think we can find a nicer way to live like this hissing reptile. Why Do Snakes Shed Their Skin? You are better than a snake. You know why? Yes, there are…

I have no plans other than to: Sleep in hostel See volcano Beach myself Write  Other than that, it’s all up in the air. It’s funny to me how some people script out their entire trip like a play, only because I’m completely opposite in my approach.

  • This Small Oversight Can Make You Procrastinate

    Stephen Guise
    26 Jan 2015 | 10:10 pm
    Have you ever made plans for later, remembered the plans, and procrastinated anyway? Why does that happen? I’ve already talked about the reason why we procrastinate, and within that reason is a small, but critical detail that many of us—myself included—fail to internalize and implement with regularity. Failure to do it means you’ll fail to take action every time. It may in fact be the crux of inaction for most procrastinators. In order to take action, you must first terminate deliberation. When we make decisions, first we deliberate (i.e., weigh our options), and then we…

    Thailand temple door / photo: Maia Duerr When I was a kid, I wanted to be a magician. My little friends often invited me to do magic tricks at their birthday parties; I even had an old, cast-off brown suitcase where I stashed all my magical accoutrements – the wand, scarves, cups and balls, a deck of cards, and much more! With a big black magic marker, I wrote on the outside of the suitcase: “The Great Duerrini.” Over the last few years, I’ve been re-visiting my love affair with magic, only now I understand it in a new way. Here’s what I believe: Magic happens when we take another…

The town next to Monterey is Pacific Grove, and one of my favorite places to go there was a grove of eucalyptus trees – this was the winter home of the monarch butterflies. When you walked into the grove and see towering eucalyptus trees, you’d think you were seeing their leaves draping down from the top of the tree to near the ground. Then…

  • The 3 Building Blocks of Transformation

    Maia Duerr
    2 Nov 2014 | 1:05 pm
    True transformation occurs only when we can look at ourselves squarely and face our attachments and inner demons, free from the buzz of commercial distraction and false social realities. We have to retreat into our own cocoons and come face-to-face with who we are.  We have to turn toward our own inner darkness.  For only by abandoning its attachments and facing the darkness does the caterpillar’s body begin to spread out and its light, beautiful wings begin to form. ~Julia Butterfly Hill __________________________ This past month, I’ve been supporting the 24 people who are going…

Honestly, when I wrote up the September list it didn’t cross my mind that I was using the same name as a fantastic magazine. But now that I get that, I’m sending a big nod of recognition and thanks to the original YES! magazine, which has long been one of my very favorite publications. Any resemblance between this list and the magazine is coincidental, but I highly encourage you to check them out. So here we go into the September Yes! list……

Admittedly, it’s been hard to slow down and relax. I find that most days I’m cleaning, working out, organizing, or otherwise trying to find another project to do in the early hours of my day. I’m…

    “Our fears make up the stories we tell ourselves.” In case you are wondering, I did not read the book 50 Shades of Grey nor have watched the movie. However, I thought it would be interesting to share a perspective on 50 shades of fear, since I specialize in doing emotional work with my clients. As we already know, fear can manifest at different levels and degrees of negative emotions; which is influenced by the story that our minds tell. For instance, fear can be in the form of worry….or in more severe cases, it can grow into depression. Fear can also be in the form of…

  • What To Do When Waiting On God

    Maria Erving
    1 Mar 2015 | 7:34 am
    Something is always brewing, we’re always in a process of moving forward with our dreams, desires and plans (even when it seems we’re not), but sometimes we get in our own way by stubbornly trying to make things happen when only God can make them happen. As human beings we are not always ready for something when we think we are, and sometimes we need to grow first, to develop or learn something, like for example trust and patience. That’s why I always mention the importance of asking for wisdom and understanding when we pray. We have to grow so that we can come to a place of…

  • “I’ll leave love to fate.” 5 Myths Keeping You from Finding Love, Debunked

    25 Feb 2015 | 3:03 am
    For a long time, I wanted to set up this friend of mine. She’s attractive, smart, and an overall great catch. But every time we talked about love, dating, and possibly setting her up, she’d respond with, I’ll leave things to fate. At first I thought, Okay, maybe she’s just not ready. But then one year passed. Three years. Five years. It’s been six years, and she’s still single. While there’s nothing wrong with being single, my friend does want to be with someone, but she does nothing about it, instead always saying, “I’ll leave things to…

We were talking about relationships (both of us were single), and he asked me how many relationships I had been in before. I was 27 then. “None,” I said earnestly. His face paled. “…None?” he repeated. “Like you’ve never been in a relationship before?” “Yep, been single my whole life,” I chirped, while ignoring the grave look on his face. I had been in a couple of short-term relationships up till then, but they were high-school…

    I saw an incredible movie recently, Buck. It’s a documentary about the real “Horse Whisperer.” It got me thinking about something that must be talked about, but is hard to talk about in public. So let me try. I’m goin’ deep and gettin’ personal here about the roots of painful shyness. The film told the story of Buck Brannaman, who is known for his gifted connection with horses, and training horses without using harsh methods. (His story was fictionalized in the book and film, The Horse Whisperer.) When you watch him with a horse, you can see why they call…

    “What do you do?” seems to be one of the most dreaded questions. Especially for people in transition or who feel like what they’re doing might be judged. It makes us squirm a little…. or a lot.

No more extrovert mask to fit in! And you think self-employment might give you the freedom to create work the way you want it. (Yes!) But, you’re nervous about what self-employment avenues will work for you as an introvert. (“Ack, and what about marketing?!”) Sound familiar? You’re not alone.

How many of us would like one of these for our lives? Every morning you could wake up, open up the app, and have an idea of whether your day ahead will be smooth sailing or have inconveniences along the way; whether the next season of your life will be full of break-out moments or break down…

Or perhaps you were like me who thought that what you wanted was too much for God and that you would be happy with anything/anyone really. This describes my journey of finding love. It was filled with excitement, doubt, frustration, growth, and…awkwardness. There’s a movie called “He’s Just Not That Into You” that I wish came out while I was in high school. It could have saved me some awkwardness though then I wouldn’t have good stories to share. I…

See for a long time, I was taught to eat my fruits and veggies, drink my milk, and eat my protein…so I did. But then I learned something that shocked me. The food I was eating was not real! Gasp! I learned that you share the same name as the good stuff. But you don’t have the same goodness within you. It’s like finding a treasure chest with no treasures inside…an empty treasure chest? Gasp! What happened? How did you come to be? Will the real food please stand up?

    Tupac Shakur was always a controversial rapper, partly because he was about more than hip hop or music, he was in another category separate from art. He was extremely curious with bringing about changes, exactly like his very own song, changes. He was passionate about making music that helped change the way people lived, the way people were treated and he just strongly wanted to get that message out there. And for great, great reason. With people like 2pac, changing the world is not some fun expression or quote, it’s about persuasion and really making people see a different way. And…

Dr. Seuss was a genius because he knew that everyone else was, he also knew we all needed to be tapped into realizing that genius within.

You see – she was having problems with her manager and this was clouding her thinking. She just couldn’t figure out if it was the manager that was the problem – or if it was the job its-self. She’d found in recent months that there were aspects of her role that she didn’t enjoy and she wasn’t really that good at. They just didn’t come naturally to her.

    For every head, there is always the right hat to wear. The same holds true with your wealth success. Yes, you heard that right. The key to achieving your success in wealth could very well depend on the hat that you put on your head. Let us take cue from two iconic childhood characters, which have been admired for the hats they wear. Just think about it, if only The Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland worn the appropriate hats throughout the story, he would not have gone as twisted or bonkers as he was. To quote the character, “I knew who I was this morning, but I’ve changed a few times…
  • Be an Effective Public Speaker: Communicate to Influence

    Jacky Lim
    27 Jan 2015 | 2:42 am
    “If you just communicate, you can get by. But if you can communicate skillfully, you can work miracles.” Nothing holds more truth to the importance of communicating with influence and persuasion than this inspiring quote made famous by American entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker Jim Rohn. Whether you are interacting with just one person or addressing a crowd of people, there is always that end goal of eliciting a response. Not just any response. But a response that is positive and one that you want. Communication is a basic skill used in human connection. But as basic as it is,…
  • How NLP Can Lead You Towards Your Path to Wealth Success

    What is the measure of success? For a lot of people, financial success is their ultimate benchmark. To some extent, some even equate success with money. After all, having stable financial resources means that you can live life comfortably and on your own terms. But a lot dispute this by saying that money is not and should never be the measure of success. You should take higher importance on the relationships you build with other people and even the difference that you make in other’s life as true measures of success. Now, I understand that you may feel a little bit of guilt to admit that…

    If you were to be asked right now what your greatest fear is, what would it be? It would not come as a surprise if the fear of public speaking is the first thing that comes to your mind. Just the mere thought of speaking in front of a group or, even more daunting, a huge crowd of people peering their eyes directly at you is just enough to squeeze out all your sweat and send shivers because of sheer nervousness. Jerry Seinfeld has even joked about it saying that, “I read a thing that actually says that speaking in front of a crowd is considered the number one fear of the average person. I…

    How do you achieve success? How do you fulfill your life’s desires? Best-selling self-development books and motivational speakers would probably have one common answer to those hard-hitting questions. It is all about Personal Power. It has been used one too many times that its essence and definition have become all jumbled up and has even become a cliché that has lost its meaning. But let us gear back and put substantial meaning into it – the NLP way, of course. The Many Definitions of Personal Power It would be no surprise to you if I say that personal power is the key to personal…

    In my first full-time job, I had the privilege to work with a strategic, smart and shrewd thought leader we all called ‘Boss’. He saw potential in me, gave me a lot of unmerited exposure, and helped me hone my abilities. One day during an off the hook appraisal chit chat, Boss started reflecting on his own career, and then he gave me the piece of advice that has stuck with me from that early period of my career till today. Late last year, I came across an article titled ‘The 60-30-10 Rule. The Secret To Career Success’. It was written by one of my favorite LinkedIn…

    Almost certainly in today’s workplace, you will send emails more than you meet people in person. That means your email address goes a lot more places than you do personally. So if people spend a lot of hours and money on their physical appearance for meetings, why don’t they just spend a few minutes making sure their email address is clean and professional? Want to check if your email address is professional? Write it down and ask yourself these three questions:   TEST1: Does it raise eyebrows?

    The just ended AFCON is full of lessons for anybody who is interested in becoming a better person, whether or not they follow soccer. One of the biggest lessons is on the role of Asamoah Gyan, Ghana’s most consistent tournament appearer, leading worldcup scorer and current captain of the Black Stars. As things stand, Asamoah ‘Baby Jet’ Gyan has already made his mark in Ghana’s footballing history. But he is a man who is praised and insulted in equal measure. Without any support from home, Captain Asamoah Gyan led a team no one cared about from the start of the…

    Ghanaians are going to remember the evening of February 8, 2015 for a long time. For the second time in twenty three years, Ghana lost an African cup final to Ivory Coast on penalties. In the hours leading to the game, many Ghanaians thought it was going to be an end to the nation’s 33-year search for an AFCON trophy. When the Black Stars put up a very good performance on the night, the country became more optimistic. Unfortunately, a dramatic penalty shoot-out denied Ghana the chance of lifting the trophy on the night. The result broke our hearts, but this painful match plays out five…

Two perspectives, one special relationship, and, to top it all, she’s stealing my clothes, shoes, and jewelry.

    One of the worst things you can do? Create a business with absolutely no foundation other than it seems like a cool idea. When I left corporate America and entered into the world of entrepreneurship I thought that being a smart business woman gave me a leg up. Boy, was I stupid! I had a very cool idea, all my friends and family said so! But I did no research on my market. I didn’t know who my buyer was, and what’s worse I couldn’t reach enough of them to support my business. So guess what? 13 months, tons of lost time, tons of lost money, lots of tears later – big…

    If you want to grow your reach and make more money in your business the process by which you make that happen is called marketing. 1 million new micro businesses start up every year (A micro business is made up of 1 or 2 people.). 80% of those 1 million businesses won’t break 50K in annual revenue (Notice I didn’t say profit- I said revenue). Why? There are lots of reasons but in many cases marketing is the missing piece. They’re too small minded about their business. (Sorry, I’m not trying to be mean here, just honest :-).)

Given the right person that’s willing to roll up their sleeves and get really serious, I can succeed every time. However, one of the things I learned first as a sales trainer back in my corporate days that still holds true today in my life as an entrepreneur mentor is that people who are messy and unorganized will struggle. You cannot build profitability in chaos. When I was a…

After my first business failed and I lost a ton of money I learned the error of my ways before going into business number two.

This book is doing just that.

Like any good hostess, I've paid attention to what it was trying to tell me...rather than multi-tasking, not making eye-contact, and only half listening.

    We always have the option to open up the door to greater insight and clarity. It is often our thinking mind that blocks the creative stream of consciousness, but when we allow the door to open, we release the floodgates of our potential.Because that’s all we ever are: unbound potential.  We seem to have bought into an illusion that we are limited in some form or another when we are in reality, limitless.  It is true our brain is limited, and so is our body, but more and more we are awakening up to the incredible potential of our souls.For it is our souls where we find…

    Why does it seem as if people are always holding on to their idea of who we were instead of who we are?Why can’t people see us for who we are as of today, and let go of any conceived notions of our past?I’ve done it myself, with others.  Most of us have a hard time letting go of our specific thoughts about someone, doubting that they could ever change.  When we look at them, we only think of what stands out for us which may have been terrible, or draining, or painful… but we rarely allow our mind to wrap around the idea that they are not whom they used to be.

    The internet is an amazing and terrible place.     It allows just about any joker to write things and broadcast it to fairly wide audience.  I probably fall into that category as well, but I always make an effort not to seem dogmatic about my views and recognize that everyone's body is going to work differently and will respond differently to pretty much any circumstance you can think of.  I'm also not an expert, but I do have some personal experience to work from.   That said, I find myself

    When I graduated high school, my sister gave me a book called Letters To A Young Poet and I've been trying to finish it for over four years.  The book is a collection of letters written by the German poet Rainer Maria Rilke just after the turn of the century to a young man who attends the same school and happens upon Rilke's published works.  In addition to the letters is some background on Rilke to give you some context as to what is going on in his life as he's writing these letters.   It
  • Some Things Are More Expendable Than Others

    26 Jan 2015 | 5:55 pm
    Some things that you buy are expendable by nature, it's just one of those things you have to accept.  When you're a musician, particularly a drummer, you find this is overwhelmingly true.  Drum heads break, guitar strings break, you lose guitar picks, you lose drum keys, cables go bad; you get the idea.  Drum sticks are usually among the most expendable items for me, but every now and then you find one or two sticks that hang around without breaking for what seems like an egregiously long time.

  • Why You Should Stay Positive While Working On Your Goals

    Atiba Shaikh
    22 Dec 2014 | 9:10 am
    Positivity is greatly encouraged these days, be it in the everyday life, for working on your goals and dreams, coping with the setbacks or finding solutions for your small-big problems. But it is hard to adopt positivity as a way of life and become a total optimist if you don’t know the uses of optimism and how exactly positive thinking helps you. If you are unable to have a blind belief that ‘if you think positively, positive things happen’, you may find it very difficult and even irrational to stay positive in every situation without any reason whatsoever. So, today…

  • Why And How To Let Go Of Perfection

    Atiba Shaikh
    2 Dec 2014 | 8:17 am
    There have always been mixed views about perfection. The two schools of thought regarding perfection are: 1) You should strive to be perfect or the expert in whatever you do, and not get complacent and think that that’s all you are capable of; and 2) Perfection is bad as it makes you forever dissatisfied, no matter how much you have achieved. It affects your happiness & growth. As you may have guessed from the title, today, I won’t be focusing on the pros and cons of perfection. I’ll simply go with the latter point and discuss various ways in which perfection is bad…

The past hurts, failures, fears, grudges will keep holding you back for as long as you don’t take action to remove them – they will keep controlling your present and future and prevent it from being as great as it can be. You keep hearing similar phrases. Most of the time, you are also aware that how holding on to your past or a grudge may be affecting your growth and happiness. But no matter how hard you try, you are just unable to ‘move on’. All…

    Truman Capote was a witty guy. Famous for his conversational prowess and slightly ridiculous accent. He once said: “A conversation is a dialogue, not a monologue. That’s why there are so few good conversations: due to scarcity, two intelligent talkers seldom meet.”If a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist is doubtful about the potential for a good conversation, the rest of us is screwed, right? I mean, it’s crazy how difficult it is to hold a genuine conversation. On top of that, it’s really easy to stress out if the thoughts that you are having are really important.What if there…

There are times when someone asks you “How are you?”, and you don’t feel like answering and just say “I’m fine”.The reason why it’s not good to answer “I am fine”, whenever you feel down and out, is because you are essentially suppressing your feelings and making it harder to get through the “down and out” state.Once you begin to say “I’m not fine. I’m really angry. I feel sad. I feel confused”, who knows? The person in front of you could assist you or you could get into a great conversation and learn…

You feel inferior to them.How do you stop avoiding people and start accepting yourself?Basically, people who don’t accept themselves is because they try too hard to be liked by other people.

    The Right Question

  • Perfectionism is Totally Flawed

    James de Garmo
    15 Feb 2015 | 10:28 pm
      For many years, I was what the average person would call a “perfectionist”.  This meant at the time that I wanted to make sure everything was just right before I’d call it acceptable.  I wanted every detail perfect.  I prided myself on my perfectionism. With the benefit of hindsight, I now fully understand that all I was doing was revealing how afraid I was that things wouldn’t be good enough.  I was worried that people would judge my standards as being too low if I allowed something to be called ‘finished’ when it wasn’t perfect. However, I want to illustrate some…

    Cook it first, maybe? Or is that not a “basic”? If you’ve ever tried to master anything, you’ve learned the importance of “the basics”.  And there are a few things about the basics that it’s important to remember, re-learn, or learn the first time if you never discovered them. I’m going to share it a little anecdote here.  It concerns a monk who went to study martial arts.  There are many variations of this, but I’ll simplify it. For many months, the monk’s teacher told him to stand at a large bowl of water and slap the surface…

As I cover in The Right Question, you don’t necessarily know that.  There are a lot of reasons for this, but the most important reason is that it simply isn’t real yet.  So there’s no reliable way to tell exactly what you’d do.  You probably think you know, and I’m sure you’ve thought about it, but you can’t know.  None of us really can. I remember once when I got off the…

  • Law of Attraction and Allowing: 3 Tips for Getting Out of Your Own Way

    Kelli Cooper
    2 Mar 2015 | 2:26 am
    One of the appeals of working consciously with law of attraction is the idea things we want can come to us with ease and joy. We don’t have to suffer; we don’t have to worry about anyone else being able to mess things up for us. It’s pretty freaking great how the whole system works. But, as we all know, getting into a space of true allowing can be one of the hardest things to do. We have pesky resistance, issues of deserving, and a bunch of other crap gumming up the works. It can take a bit of time to really shift our energy. Conscious decisions have to be made to start…

What a stupid question they may think..of course I believe I am entitled to happiness. But, I’ll let you in on a little secret…we often don’t feel that way. The degree to which we don’t can vary significantly between people, but issues of worthiness and deserving are something most grapple with. And working consciously with law of attraction can really trigger all of that big time. You may begin thinking back to all…

I have gained a deeper understanding of how to practically apply the principles, and it is my favorite topic to cover on my blog. Why? Because I know how frustrating it can be to try and work with a process that is supposed to be so damn simple, but feels really hard, especially when we first start out, or have set our sights on something big and important to us. The essence of LOA is pretty basic. Ask and it is given. Believe you can have what you want. Act as if you already have…

We would all just focus on own happiness, and making our little corner of existence as awesome as possible. The need to judge, criticize or try to impose our will onto others would be absent. But, alas, that really isn’t how it goes much of the time, and pushback from others, and caring a bit too much about what other people think, is probably one of the biggest barriers to living as we truly please.

We lost our water for the better part of 3 days. A pipe hidden behind a basement wall froze 2 different times. It killed our water supply. Fun times. It’s surreal when a modern convenience is taken away. It felt like we were camping in the 1790’s, but with lights, heat and Wi-Fi. The first time the pipe froze we cursed nature.

Bosses are many.  Leaders are few. Leaders set the tone.  Leaders make everyone around them better. One of the leadership secrets I’ve learned is that leaders are developed, not born. Leadership is not given by a title or position. Leadership is attained by INFLUENCE.

Then you have the people (call them what you want) who will save the tea bag, just to get more tea out of it to drink, by using 2 to 3 used tea bags to make 1 more cup of tea.

    ONESelflessDean Smith did not want to be praised for his accomplishments.  He was a very shy person and did not think it was fair for one person to receive all the recognition for a team's effort.  Former Tar Heel basketball players describe the way that Smith treated them like family, no matter how talented they were.  In 1986, Smith requested for the Dean E. Smith Center to honor the players as opposed to him.Greek proverb states, "A society grows when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in."  Dean Smith was selfless.  Throughout his life,…

  • 3 Victory Lessons From Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady

    1. Deflate the CriticsPrior to the Super Bowl, the only thing on everyone's mind was the 'deflate-gate'. Tom Brady simply explained that he did not take part in any wrongdoing involving deflated footballs and the critics went crazy.  An NFL investigation found that the footballs supplies by the Patriots were 2 pounds below standard. When footballs have less air in them, they are easier to throw and catch.  As Brady explained, this was a distraction.  When you are in a position of power people will attempt to bring you down.  Critics do not hesitate to throw rocks at the…

  • 3 Problems of a Fixed Mindset

    Jeff Waller
    1 Mar 2015 | 11:12 pm
    Albert Einstein once said, “We cannot solve the problems we face with the same level of thinking that created them.” To him–and I agree–the definition of insanity is “doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” Our mindsets have gotten us where we are, and they’re exactly what’s in the way of us getting where we want to be. In our research, we came across enlightening insights in the work of Dr. Carol Dweck. In her book, Mindset, she describes having a “fixed” mindset as “attaching one’s sense of self-worth to extrinsic or…

    If you’ve ever had goals and dreams that didn’t come true, you’re not alone. An astounding 92% of people say that the goals and resolutions they set each year simply don’t get achieved. With stats this high, I knew there had to be something in common that was holding them back. After studying the 8% who do accomplish their goals, I was able to determine exactly what these high achievers do differently. It’s important to note that these 8% come from all walks of life. They can be married, single, or divorced; highly educated or high school dropouts; middle class, wealthy, or even…

  • 5 Ways to Have a Success Mindset

    Jeff Waller
    11 Feb 2015 | 8:15 pm
    My son’s soccer coach uses an age-old mantra that “Attitude is everything, and everything is attitude.” Give him a player with a good attitude, and he can work wonders. If a kid has a bad attitude, he/she will struggle to succeed…plain and simple. Moreover, the player with the bad attitude adversely impacts his team and drains much of the coach’s time and energy. As with soccer, our outlook and the emotions we maintain dictate so much of our success in life. How we feel and the energy we put off impacts our relationships, our performance, and the nature of what we take out of the…

    Teaching is one of the most rewarding professions a person can choose… except when it’s not.  Sometimes, after a long day of giving it your all, your fuel tank is on empty.  You possibly ran out of energy even before lunch.  And, if you’ve been teaching for quite some time, you may start to dread the daily routine before the day even begins.   Maybe you haven’t hit this wall yet, but you probably know a few teachers who have. They’re easy to spot.  They make their way slowly–heads down–from the parking lot to the classroom to begin their self-imposed…

    Anything vegan or vegetarian is a hard sell for my carnivorous husband. Dinner just isn’t dinner for him without some sort of meat on the plate. When I was whipping up dinner for a friend recently, who happens to be eating vegan, and offered to make some for our family too, Brance wasn’t so sure. He was […]The post Amazing Vegan Chili appeared first on A Life Enjoyed.

    Sidewalks in South Boston have become more like tunnels. The snow in the picture above is piled up taller than Brance on both sides! There are enormous snow piles on almost every corner. Sometimes they block off the sidewalk entirely, so people are mostly walking in the streets. And to think we are still supposed to […]The post “All that deep, deep, deep snow, all that snow had to go” appeared first on A Life Enjoyed.
