The Power Of Kindness

June 27th, 2017

Most of us don’t give much thought to the power of kindness. Most of us don’t go out of our way to help others. But what if we did? What if we chose to spend one day going out of our way to do as many self-less acts of kindness as we possibly could? What would that feel like? What impact would that have on our self-esteem? On our joy and inner peace? On world peace?


Are You Master of your Fate or Victim of a Hostile, Chaotic Universe?

June 26th, 2017

Although there may be such a thing as good luck and bad luck which blesses or curses us accordingly, many of us create our luck by the choices we make. Perhaps there are some of us who are masters of our fate by virtue of our vigilance, our commitment, our discipline and our consistency.


Pay Attention To Red Flags. Take Action.

June 25th, 2017

We ignore the red flags in our lives and then we complain how unfair the world is when our lives don’t work the way we want them to. The time to respond to the handwriting on the wall is immediately upon seeing it, not days, weeks, months or years later after suffering the consequences of inaction.


Stop Re-Living The Past and Fearing The Future

June 20th, 2017

We beat ourselves up with thoughts of guilt, shame and failure from the past. We terrorize ourselves with catastrophic fear thoughts about the future. In other words, we make ourselves miserable. It doesn’t have to be that way. We can discipline our mind so that we are in control of our thoughts rather than being victimized by them. It takes vigilance and practice to do this. To Be Present in the Here and Now. It’s not easy. But it’s worth it because that’s where the real fun is. That’s where the joy and spontaneity of Life Happens.


Are You Superstitious? Or Perhaps Extraordinarily Intuitive?

June 19th, 2017

If you are superstitious, you are told you have irrational beliefs. Beliefs that are not grounded in fact. That are illogical and unscientific. But what if they are only irrational beliefs because science has not proven them to be facts yet? Intuition, for example, is a belief that generally can’t be validated. When it is validated, this occurs after the fact. Point being: Perhaps everything is connected in ways we cannot see or conceive of at this juncture in the evolution of our consciousness. Perhaps one day we will discover that the Mind is All-Powerful and that anything is possible.


Words Matter. Choose Your Words Wisely.

June 18th, 2017

Our words define us. They tell others what we believe, how we feel, what our intentions are, among other things. Therefore it is best that we choose our words as precisely as possible so that they don’t misrepresent us and contribute to misunderstandings.


Want To Repair A Relationship? Be Loving. Be Patient.

June 17th, 2017

Many people wait too long to attempt to repair a broken relationship. Best to nip problems in the bud rather than wait until there is a huge chasm dividing the two of you. And when you do start repairing it, the key to success is to be loving, be giving, be generous, be forgiving, be gracious. And, above all else, be patient. It took time to break down the relationship. It will take time to restore trust and build it back up again.


Can People Change? Where There’s A Will There’s A Way.

June 13th, 2017

People can change. But it is extremely difficult. It takes vigilance over our thoughts. It takes impulse control. It takes thoughtfulness and mindfulness. It takes practice and persistence. It takes consistency. It takes a commitment to rejecting the negative influences of our inner critic and the reactions of others who fear our changing will distance us from them. Above all else, it takes motivation. You’ve got to really want to change if you’re going to be able to do all the other things that are necessary. Change is growth. Change is self-esteem. Change is usually happiness and success.


Self- Sabotaging Behaviors Getting In The Way Of Our Success

June 12th, 2017

There are many self-sabotaging behaviors that we engage in every day. Some of these we are aware of. Others are less apparent to us. All of them are choices we make that keep us from the things we say we want, including success, happiness, health, and satisfying relationships. When we eliminate the self-sabotaging behaviors our lives become more effective and are goals become more attainable.


Be Authentic. Be Your Own. Don’t Be A Clone.

June 11th, 2017

We tend to copy others we admire. That’s nice. But what’s nicer is choosing to be yourself. Discovering your own uniqueness and expressing it. Embracing your authenticity regardless of the reactions of others. Take home message: Be fearless. Be You. Everybody else is taken.
