Language provides the key for many of our current views and beliefs. Unfortunately, we rarely listen to ourselves with conscious attention and so we miss many clues that could help us understand our behavior. Here are three areas where it would benefit us to pay particular attention while we are speaking. Very often the blocks to our success are revealed this way. 1. Words that... Continue reading

1. Look at life as a journey and enjoy the ride. Get the most out of the detours and realize they're sometimes necessary. 2. Do your best, but if what you're doing has caused you discouragement, try a different approach. Be passionate about the process, but don't be so attached to the outcome. 3. Wish the best for everyone, with no personal strings attached. Applaud... Continue reading

Working with a variety of people from all walks of life has given me some insight into the process of success. Regardless of our background, skills, experience, or attitude, we can't be successful until we feel confident about who we are and what we're doing. It's one of those cart before the horse things, since we tend to think that being successful will give us... Continue reading

I forgive people, but that doesn’t mean I trust them. I just don’t have time to hate people who hurt me, because I’m too busy loving people who love me. The first to apologize is the bravest. The first to forgive is the strongest. The first to move forward is the happiest. Be brave. Be strong. Be happy. Be free. Refuse to be unhappy; be... Continue reading

Your life has been designed to work, and your hidden potential contains what you seek and all that you need in life. It is OK to be who you are and choose what you have. The Quakers call it the "still, small voice within," that place of full awareness within that is in touch with the entire universe and is the source of wisdom. In... Continue reading

Decide what you want. Believe you can have it. Believe you deserve it and believe it's possible for you. And then close your eyes every day for several minutes, and visualize having what you already want, feeling the feelings of already having it. Come out of that and focus on what you're grateful for already, and really enjoy it. Then go into your day and... Continue reading

Life is a balance of light and dark. Happiness comes not from being attached to the good days and dreading the bad days, but by accepting that both are a part of life. When you accept this, you are able to live from a more balanced perspective, with equanimity, enjoying the good times, learning from the hard times, and appreciating that both have an important...

Remember that every moment counts. Every second matters. Honestly, whatever is given is a gift. So don’t be so satisfied with the success stories of others and how things have gone for them that you forget to write your own. Unfold your own tale and bring it to life. You have everything you need to become what you are capable of becoming. Incredible change happens... Continue reading

Do you condemn yourself for things which you did--or failed to do--in the past? Everyone does this at some point. However, if you want to lead a successful and productive life, it is imperative that you release the past and not blame yourself for events which have already transpired and which cannot be changed. Ask yourself this question: has "beating yourself up" about the past... Continue reading

Your job in bringing about change is the easy part. Just two steps are required for unleashing metaphysical energies and laws, bringing about what others will likely call miracles, luck, destiny, divine intervention, coincidence, and the like. And if you simply take both steps, and keep on taking them until there are results, as long as you aren’t tripping over the nuances named in the... Continue reading

All relationships, whether they’re on an emotional, physical, mental, or spiritual level, are part of the never-ending learning process and enlightenment of the soul. No matter what category a relationship falls into (and I appreciate that there are many), it becomes a teaching tool, and with every new insight and lesson, your soul learns from these experiences and becomes stronger and richer. A relationship can... Continue reading

Stop jumping to conclusions. There are two common ways this habit increases people’s difficulties. First, they assume that they know what is going to happen, so they stop paying attention and act on their assumption instead. Most of what they assume is wrong. The second aspect of this habit is playing the mind-reader and assuming you know why people do what they do or what... Continue reading

How can you stop fearing what everyone thinks of you? Let’s take a look: 1. Get comfortable with not knowing what other people think. When I first started writing on this blog, I’d agonize over whether people would think what I was writing was good enough. I desperately hoped they’d like it, and oftentimes I’d catch myself imagining they didn’t. Then one day I realized... Continue reading

The power of our belief systems is unquestionable. Our beliefs shape our thoughts, provide fuel for our emotional reactions and shape our reality. If we can change our beliefs, well, we can change anything! Think about the placebo effect in science. The power of a “fake” sugar pill has been proved thousands of times. The work of biologist Bruce Lipton takes our understanding of how... Continue reading

''To gain happiness, you must learn to enjoy that which you have. It is not how much you have. It is what we think about that which we have that produces happiness. In building a happy, contented life, you must give happiness to others. No one living unto him or herself will ever be contented with his or her lot. Your happiness is reflected upon...

A positive attitude opens you to the flow of life. If you are depressed, angry, and unhappy, no one wants to be around you. You literally push people and opportunities away. The wonderful thing is that you have the freedom to choose which attitude you want to adopt. There is no perfect way; each way is unique to each individual. Knowing that you can choose...

Do you realize that the life you are living is a result of your thoughts? Do you realize that the power of your thoughts is what brings positive or negative things to fruition in your life?

How might we make the world a better place? There are many ways. When someone asked Mother Teresa how he might help her, she simply said, "Come and see." We can simply observe what needs to be done, and do it as best we can. This might mean providing physical help (such as cleaning or giving a ride) or giving a smile, a listening ear,...
