Move Forward With Grace

Move Forward With Grace

Where in your life do you feel an expectation wasn't met?  It could be from a family discordance or a life situation you weren't equipped to handle.  And, at the time, it probably wasn't something you dealt with right away, nor did you realize the extent of your disappointment.  Eventually, life just went on. What happens to all the issues you cover up?  They become automatic reactions. When triggered, they carry resentment, anger and disappointment.... and even long-term riffs.  Some things may even manifest physically as migraines, stomach issues, or body aches/pains.  Fear, hurt, guilt and shame often accompany the symptom and create an overall sense of disappointment.   When you experience situations you aren't ready for in life, they can really eat away at you.  Until you get to a point later when you realize you have to get to the bottom of things and resolve them.  You just aren't quite sure how. One thing you know for sure is that you want to go forward with grace. Find...

Stop Taking Things Personally

Stop Taking Things Personally

"We often add to our pain and suffering by being overly sensitive, over-reacting to minor things and sometimes taking things too personally." Dalai Lama Taking things too personally can add unnecessary stress to your life.  Sometimes it's hard to avoid, right?  Something may be going wrong in your personal life and then you get on a call with a colleague, sponsor or prospect, and then BAM!, something they say triggers you.  You internalize and react, rather than listen and respond.  Not a good call. Let's face it, when you aren't a good match for someone else, it's challenging to not let their words affect you.  You may find that happening quite a bit due to your sensitive nature or that you are going through a stressful time in life. If you find yourself feeling offended by others remarks or actions more often than not, you'll end up limiting yourself.  It's a waste of energy to experience things at the levels that cause you...

Going For Gold

Going For Gold

Can you recall a particular instance when you went all out? I mean, when you really put your heart into something. You prepared yourself as much as possible, with whatever resources you had at the time. You were focused and knew what you wanted as an outcome - to have better health, build your business, give yourself the freedom you desired. You went for the GOLD. You may have had excellent, mid-range or poor results. The fact is, you went all in and landed somewhere.... much like an Olympian. With all their training, GOLD is the goal, and sometimes they fall short - for silver, bronze... or last. Because going all out for best results means you're doing it from the heart. The summer Olympics in Rio reflect the reality of it's hosts resources. It isn't as flashy as opening ceremonies or coverage in the past... it's pretty bare bones, and Brazil acknowledges that. Priorities and circumstances shift which affect you personally and...
