We cannot solve our Problems with the same thinking we used when we created them. – Albert Einstein
I once read a book by Brian Klemmer called “If How to-s were enough, we’d all be skinny rich and happy! Obviously its not the knowing “how” we all know that, but the Thinking we do that leads us to believing we are capable of achieving that together with action and persistence in the face of all odds that brings about change.Let’s face it! We live in a world of people who watch each other and try and emulate the people who we think are successful, by attempting to do what they do. With that, it is possible to get some results, no doubt. Because Taking Action is Key to our Success.
Argue for Your Limitations, and they’re Yours! – Richard Bach
I really believe that once we start defending our lack of resources whether spiritual, physical, emotional, mental or financial ….we actually create more of that lack.
For example if we keep saying, I am not smart enough because I did not get an education, we remain stupid. If we say, we cannot afford it, we remain poor.
It is time to stop this Universal Illusion of Self imposed limitation and start reaching out to embrace the concept that we are Abundantly Resourced and Behold! That begins to happen.
It’s like Magic!! But it takes work to shake off the paradigms of the past… Read More→
I have often regretted my speech; Never my Silence! – Xenocrates
In a noisy world of other people’s opinions, subliminal marketing messages to buy things we do not need and our own busy minds, we forget that Silence is sometimes a luxury we have the right to give ourselves!
Now I am not referring to the Miranda Warning with which we have all become familiar despite not having led a life of undiscovered crime, thanks to all the detective shows on television!
It requires an officer of the law to inform an arrested person of interest they are taking into custody for interrogation that they do not have to answer any questions but that whatever they do say (or do) can be used in court as evidence against them.
The Miranda Warning goes like this: Read More→
Jealousy is the tribute mediocrity pays to Genius – Fulton J. Sheen
Nisha (not her actual name to protect her identity) is a client of mine who has achieved phenomenal heights of success once she started getting her head down and going for her dream with every thing she had! This has taken her two years of concerted effort, determination and sheer grit. For someone who had sold out on her dreams because the world had told her she did not deserve it, it was not worth pursuing and that she was not good enough to compete with other big names out there, she has earned her new found success.
However, she stopped right in her tracks when she began to face the fire of jealousy and envy that was being hurled at her. She got flak even from her own family members and her children turned on her accusing her of self centred motivation and neglect. Her mother and sister accused her of being too big for her boots and she started crumbling. She came to me in tears for her coaching and mastermind session and it was all we could do to keep her fixed on the goal of her Dream. Read More→
Eighty percent of Success is showing up. – Woody Allen
Some think that Showing up is showing off. It is NOT. There is a BIG difference. I am giving you fair warning. This might be a slightly deeper topic than you may expect to read. I have been giving it a lot of thought and reflection.
A friend of mine, (let’s call her Moira) who is brilliant at what she does and could inspire many just by her example, hesitates to do so. She says she is afraid of sharing her success with others for fear that she may be viewed as a Show off. Some people may very well come to that conclusion but that might be because of a lack of discernment.
There is however a big difference between showing off and Showing up.
On the one hand lets consider the Show Off. He never engages the community at large in a helpful way and only shows up to show off.
