October 21 - Is something missing? Do you feel like something's missing? Do you feel that you are missing out on your life in some way, but have no clue about why or what? Too often, in our world of to-do's and must-do's, we get lost in who we really are in order to meet the demands of day-to-day living and working. When you feel something is missing, it typically stems from the fact that you are not honoring who you are as a person. You need to stimulate "you" back to life again so you can feel truly alive and engaged in how you are living each day.
Oct 14 – Are you welcoming opportunities into your life? Are you effectively inviting opportunities in? One of the biggest obstacles in being able to shift into a success and satisfaction mode in your life is being able to identify and be receptive to opportunities placed right in front of you. This means not dismissing things at surface level and being open to exploring a bit more before determining its real value to you. It also means sharing in order to spark opportunities that only others may be able to see and bring to you.
Oct 7 - Is stress affecting your judgment or making you question things that you once appreciated or valued? The impact of stress on your well-being physically, emotionally, and mentally can cause doubt and confusion that is oftentimes displaced in ways you may not even realize. What was once valued and appreciated, you allow stress to distort, causing you to rationalize that even the good things in your life are not as good as you thought. What was once a source of confidence for you becomes infiltrated with doubt, causing you to question what you are doing and why you are doing it. Instead of allowing stress to take control, take charge of your well-being by putting your stressors into perspective. Don’t let what has been good and valuable be tainted by stress. Allow these things to empower your ability to overcome and take charge of your stress.
Sept 30 - Are you thinking too small? Are you finding that the goals you set are easily achieved or they simply don't excite you to begin with? What makes a goal exhilarating is in the journey and effort that is involved to reach it. If your goals are merely tasks with deadlines, then no wonder you find no passion or motivation associated with them! When you stretch yourself to set goals that go beyond the realm of your current abilities, reality or comfort zone, you ignite within you the spark of possibilities that you want to believe could be a probability. You give yourself something to look forward to, as well as something to focus upon, that moves you forward with each little and big step it may take.
Sept 23 - Are you starting to back pedal? Have you been going full force in pursuit of your dreams and now you're starting to feel hesitant? Have you committed to doing something and now when it is time to get moving on it, you're having second thoughts or finding every excuse or distraction not to do it? Whenever you are proceeding to unknown territory, it can feel overwhelming, uncomfortable, and even threatening. Confirming why you are feeling the way you are feeling is the most important next step you can take.
Sept 16 - Are you limiting yourself? Have you recently discounted a potential option or direction you could go because you made the assumption that it was not a good one? Have you not considered a suggestion someone has made to you because you simply didn't think it would work or was viable? Are you keeping too much about what you are doing to yourself, not sharing with anyone? It is important not be too hasty in jumping to your own conclusion when being presented with options, opportunities or alternatives. Your greatest power towards reaching your ultimate goals and desires is in being completely open to where various options and paths may lead. If you don't honor yourself by gaining more insight and understanding about each possibility, you may actually be pushing your efforts backwards without even realizing this is what you are doing. Don't allow assumptions to cloud your vision. Being open to possibilities means being open to other people and their possibilities.
Sept 9 - Wishing you could clone yourself? Do you find yourself wishing you had another "you" to keep things moving and progressing the way you envision? Are you feeling like there are not enough hours in a day to get all that you want to accomplish done? Are you frustrated by other people because their work or action are not being performed to your standards, level of passion, or competency, which is causing you to feel as though you are the only one that can progress things forward effectively? Nothing is more disheartening for a high achiever than feeling limited when you are doing everything you believe that you can do. The dilemma is that as you take on more and more in order to accomplish more and more, you are actually crippling your ability to achieve the things you have set out to achieve. No one can do it all alone. Other people bring unique talents that could manifest progress beyond what you are seeing now if you open yourself to the possibilities. By appreciating others, you open a world of probability in making what is possible real.
Sept 2 - Is what was working not working? Have you realized success through a certain way that you have approached an endeavor that is no longer reaping the results it once did? Do you find yourself perplexed by stagnant progress when you have been putting forth a great deal of effort based on past successes or achievements? Are you frustrated by the fact that what once worked seems to no longer to be working, and you now are uncertain what your next steps should be? Ever-changing times are an invitation to evolve to an even higher level of being and doing.
Aug 26 - Are you second guessing yourself? Are you doubting your next steps or how you are going about tackling a particular problem or initiative? Are you venturing into unknown territory, which is playing a head game with your confidence in being able to accomplish what you are setting out to do? Pushing yourself beyond where you've been is exactly what you need to do to succeed in life. Understanding what is happening inside your head is how you continue to leap ahead in whatever you venture to do.
