Do Your Thing. Don’t Be Intimidated By The Success Of Others.

April 26th, 2017

It’s great when we win. It’s great when we’re the best. But not everybody can be number one. Not everybody can make the A-List or the A-Team. But that shouldn’t be our definition of success. Success is playing the game. Success is stepping up to the plate and taking our shot. Expressing our authenticity. Living our dream. And we don’t let the success or failure of others discourage us from doing it. And we don’t let negativity from others or obstacles in our path discourage us either.

Sometimes Doing Nothing Is A Real Cool Hand

April 25th, 2017

There are times when we need to take action, to be aggressive, to make our case, to stake our claim. And then there are times when it is best to not take action, to hold our tongue, to wait and see, to not expose our hand, to not act impulsively. There is great wisdom in knowing when to do which.

Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff. Choose Your Battles.

April 24th, 2017

Don’t sweat the small stuff. We’ve heard it a million times. Most of us know it’s true. But we don’t apply it in our lives on a consistent basis. We get caught up in pettiness and pointless drama fueled by our ego and our harsh judgments. The end result is often resentment, anger, frustration, anxiety, depression, insomnia, time lost that can never be recovered, perhaps relationships damaged that can never be repaired. Better, perhaps, to overlook, let go of, and accept the minor annoyances we are confronted with in our lives every day.

Look In The Mirror. Do You Like What You See?

April 23rd, 2017

We look at ourselves everyday in multiple mirrors. But are we really seeing ourselves? Best, perhaps, that we periodically look in the mirror and do an inventory of our character and integrity, and work on those areas we might want to improve.

Focus On Today. Leave Tomorrow’s Anxieties For Tomorrow.

April 23rd, 2017

We tend to worry a lot about the future, about things that could cause anxiety some day. Better, perhaps, that we focus on those things that are actually causing anxiety today and leave most of our worries about the future for when there’s a real situation that warrants our concerns.

Get Used To Getting Old. You, Too, Millennials

April 22nd, 2017

Acceptance. That’s what it’s all about if we want to be happy as we get older. Best we accept the reality of age, falling apart and eventually dropping dead. Best we appreciate and be grateful for whatever phase of life we are in, maximizing its potential for joy and blessings.

Make Haste Slowly

April 20th, 2017

We want to accomplish great deeds. And so we plan and prepare. And we certainly want to be quick about it. We want to be efficient. We want to make the magic happen ASAP. But if we are impatient and so eager to make things happen that we take action before we are truly ready, it could prove to be a disaster. Consequently, we want to hurry up but also take our time.

Appreciate The Miracle Of Life. Smell The Roses. Be Grateful.

April 20th, 2017

Many of us are so caught up in our work, our projects, our hobbies and activities to the point of being unaware of and/or unappreciative of the beauty and awe of life and nature all around us every minute of the day. This, I believe, diminishes our potential for happiness and inner peace. Better, perhaps, that we not be in such a hurry and take a little bit of time to smell the roses and be grateful for the miracle of life.

Break Free Of Limiting Beliefs and Behaviors

April 19th, 2017

We often get stuck in habits, routines, rituals, behaviors we’ve done FOREVER because they basically work and we are comfortable with them, and we don’t like change. But change is usually a good thing. Being stuck in one perspective, one world view, one way of looking at life, with the exclusion of other possibilities, is, in my opinion, a mistake, a self-imposed limitation. Better to challenge our boundaries and “limitations.” Better, perhaps, to challenge our fears and our complacency. And we can do this in very simple ways, by doing routine things differently, and experiencing what that feels like. Best, perhaps, that we not hide in our room, but rather challenge our beliefs, think outside of the box, and manifest our potentials.

To stop a bad habit or change a behavior you don’t like, you first must catch yourself in the midst of the habit or behavior, and then stop it and replace it with an alternative action. If you do this repeatedly and consistently, you will succeed.
