Do You Have A Business Meeting With Yourself Every Morning?

April 18th, 2017

Consider treating your life like a business. At the beginning of each day have a business meeting with yourself and review all your projects and goals, what steps have been taken, what still needs to be done, and prioritize what needs to be done that day as well. This will lead to greater clarity and focus, greater efficiency, and greater success.


Accept What You Can’t Change and Stop Complaining

April 17th, 2017

The Serenity Prayer reminds us to accept the things we cannot change, to have the courage to change the things we can, and to have the wisdom to know the difference. And I have added that when you are accepting the things you can’t change, don’t complain about it. Complaining is actually a demonstration that you are not in acceptance, and only makes everything worse.


Use Laughter To Heal, Not Hurt

April 16th, 2017

Laughter is a powerful emotion that can produce endorphins, reduce stress and strengthen the immune system. As a defense mechanism, humor enables us to discharge negative feelings in a healthy way and it can bring people together. However, humor, such as sarcasm and ridicule, can be very mean-spirited, shaming, humiliating, and destructive.


It’s Usually Not Smart To Poke A Stick At An Unstable Person

April 15th, 2017

When we recognize that a person is unstable, irrational, angry and/or impulsive, it is best not to provoke that person because it is likely to escalate them to the point where they engage in very unpredictable behaviors that could have serious negative consequences for us and others.


Sodas Are Bad For Our Health. Duh!

April 12th, 2017

Most sodas contain a massive amount of salt and sugar in quantities which are definitely not good for us. One might say that every Big Gulp brings us one beverage closer to diabetes, a heart attack and a shortened lifespan.


“Easier Said Than Done” Is A Self-Sabotaging Message From Our Inner Critic

April 11th, 2017

When someone makes a suggestion and we say, “Easier said than done,” what we are really doing is allowing our Inner Critic to use its negative self-talk to discourage us from making changes that might improve our lives. It is a device to weaken, not strengthen, our resolve. Best that we get that phrase our of our vocabulary, and when someone suggests something that will require a lot of time and effort, instead of saying “Easier said than done,” we say, “Let’s get started.”


Fast Food Is Slow Suicide

April 10th, 2017

Fast food is, for the most part, hazardous to our health. Like anything else, moderation most likely won’t hurt us but constantly assaulting our bodies with trash food… I mean, fast food… is simply increasing the odds of our having a variety of illnesses and impairments as we get older. Bottom line: We are what we eat. And that’s no baloney.


Contempt Prior To Investigation Is Self-Sabotage

April 9th, 2017

Many of us, when given guidance from others, immediately reject their suggestions without having any knowledge or experience to base our rejections upon. This is our resistance to change. This is self-sabotage. We need the courage to deal with our problems, no matter how difficult or threatening that process might be, or else we will never heal, change and grow.


Anxiety & Panic Disorder Triggers

April 8th, 2017

The best treatment for anxiety and panic disorders is to identify the thought that is triggering the anxiety and then look at the data to see if it is a rational or irrational fear thought. If it is irrational, acknowledge it and release the anxiety. If it is a rational, realistic fear, then choose to do something proactive to address the situation or find a way to accept what you can’t change.


Slow Wins The Race When Repairing Relationships

April 4th, 2017

In general, it takes years for us to neglect and abuse our partners before they finally get fed up with us and leave. So why do we think, when we are trying to change, that we can repair all the damage in a few weeks? Wishful thinking i guess. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. It takes time to repair a relationship. And patience. And acceptance. And humility. And a whole lot more.
