What Do You Want?

What do you want? This is one of those questions that elicits some vague memory of past dreams that never came true. Typical answers range anywhere from; I want to win the lottery, be happy, find my life’s partner, have a house on the beach, quit my job, lose weight, all the way to – I don’t really know what I want anymore. And, that last response is closest to the truth than any of the other answers. Most people simply don’t know what they want. Even if they do know what they really, really want – 97% of them won’t...

Living With Regrets?

If you’re alive you have experienced feelings of regret. We all have things we’ve done or said that we wish we hadn’t; we wish we could take things back, do things over or perhaps we wish we had reacted in a better way. We’ve all made choices that we wish we could go back and undo. And, we realize that if we had made different choices; our lives would’ve turned out differently. If only, woulda-shoulda-coulda is not that way to live your life. Unfortunately, if not put in check we can get caught up in these wrong choices. We go...

What is the Picture in Your Mind?

What is it that you wake up and think about in the middle of the night? When you catch yourself day dreaming where have you projected your mind in that moment? Are you thinking of anything good or do you find yourself in the middle of your problems? Are you having imagined conversations with someone who has upset you or do you find yourself dwelling on what is wrong in your life? Do you go over and over the same scenarios wishing things were different and do you replay the past and live with regrets? Now first let me say,...

How Do You View Things?

First, let me say, thanks for all of the well wishes for my trip to Peru…It was simply AMAZING! The Andes Mountains are truly majestic. I was blessed to be able to experience such a beautiful country and culture. I REALLY had a great time. I even hiked the death defying (Waynapicchu) Huayna Picchu. Now, let’s dive in. We’ve talked many times about how your beliefs about something have a direct impact on how you experience whatever happens to you in life. I know that most of you get it, but when the rubber meets the road, do you live...

Believe It or Not

What is belief? According to Webster’s dictionary it is confidence, faith and trust in something being true. What is faith? It’s a firm belief in something for which there is no proof; complete trust. What do you believe about yourself and your life? And, where do you place your faith? Really think about these questions. When you dig down deep enough and find the answers you will begin to understand why your circumstances are what they are. You know the old saying, “I’ll believe it when I see it?” This kind of thinking is what most people live by. The truth...

Make a Decision Today

Every day we make choices; what to wear, what to eat, what to say, what not to say, which way to drive to work, what chores to do first, who to go to lunch with, how much time you spend doing something and on and on. Most of these decisions we make unconsciously. It’s just part of the routine and we don’t even notice ourselves making them. Then there are the big decisions that really take some time and thought such as which car to buy, where to live, should I buy or rent and on and on. But there...

A New Beginning

Every day is a new beginning especially when things don’t work out the way you hoped they would. My best friend’s sister has been out of work for 7 months like many other people in this country who have lost their jobs. The other day she was so excited because she was offered a job with an ad agency. But, she would be making $25,000 less than her last job which she worked at for 15 years. She wondered if she should try and negotiate a little more money and decided to go for it. They told her to forget...

When Will You Be Happy?

Okay my friends listen up. I have been talking to a lot of people lately who are not happy and 99% of the time they blame it on someone else or something else. Well here’s a news flash: no one can make you unhappy but you! Yes, things are going to happen in life you don’t like. Things will happen that will rock your world and turn it upside down. But… Remember, it’s not what happens to us in life that matters, what matters is how we CHOOSE to view it. Your interpretation of what happens is how you are...

Pay Attention

Pay attention to what you pay attention to. Most people aren’t aware of what they are focused on because they are sleep walking through life so to speak, they live on auto-pilot. And, 70% of the time people are paying attention to what they are worried about, what they don’t like about themselves or their life and who or what has them upset. Then there are those who know what they are paying attention to because it consumes them. They feel hurt, betrayed, fearful, worried, full of doubt, full of anger and just plain miserable. You know you should stop...
