Authenticity Matters

In life, love and leadership, authenticity is the only currency that matters. 🦋

A Divine Spark

When we change our inner world of thoughts and feelings, our newly aligned behaviour begins to effect our outer world and we awaken to what we innately know that ‘yes’ we are a spark of the divine creating the moments of our life. 🦋

The Root of Our Unhappiness

We all have two lives. The life we are living and the unlived life striving to come alive.

What lies between our two worlds, is our daily practice of yielding to a dysfunctional and crippling force within us, our inner resistance, our irrational fear of living true.

The struggle and inevitable suffering that we feel is largely due to the frequency we acquiesce to our resistance. We give in to or go along with our fears without much awareness let alone protest.

We inadvertently up tick our self-loathing, we bury the best version of ourselves and we abandon the life of our dreams. We innocently move along the continuum of life in misery, believing that this is our lot in life. Although our safe, secure and comfortable life choices may be leading us down the road of unhappiness, blah lifelessness, we can at least rationalize the trade off. Right? Yes of course but at what cost?

The antidote? To accept that resistance is and always will be an essential aspect of of our psyche. It helps us to survive in the face of actual life threatening danger. However, we don’t need to yield to it’s misinterpretations and self-sabotage our intentions. We can learn to manage and transform its energy, to leverage our power to proactively thrive and live true.

Self-empowerment is a daily practice that affirms that we are the sovereigns of our life and to rule well is a disciplined thinking skill. 🦋

Why Do We Struggle?

Do you ever wonder why you are struggling with the quality of your life, a relationship, financially, health and well-being, perhaps with your career or with your leadership?

Compassionately and with curiosity ask yourself ‘why am I struggling with _________?’

Observe, not only the thoughts that bubble up but also your unpleasant feelings.

Every struggle is a treasure trove, embrace it, accept it, feel it, and then decide how you are going to turn it around and start moving in the direction of a better experience.

And The People Stayed Home

And the people stayed home.

And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still.img_3564

And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently. And the people healed.

And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.

And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.

Life’s Secret Sauce …

Self-love is a divine illumination that liberates our hearts and minds to be an authentic force for the goodness of ourselves and others. It is the secret sauce for a beautiful life lived well.

Self-love is the transformative alchemy we are all searching for to fix our messy lives, to cast out the darkness from our hearts, to right our wrongs, to breakthrough the barriers of our misguided creations, to reimagine our destiny and to recommit ourselves to the infinite wisdom of our collective oneness – we are in this game together.

Unfailing Success

While each of us has a personal understanding of success, it commonly means ‘a favorable or desired outcome’. When we aim and effectively accomplish or attain a desired end or object, we experience the glorious splendor of success.

In this moment, each of us is as successful as we believe we can be and the potential to experience greater success is always a possibility ready to be realized. In theory, all personal, professional or business success begins with an idea which then flows into a decision to ‘do it’, from which action steps are identified and taken to manifest the idea.

Although we may have personally experienced this straightforward approach to ‘having it’, an idea does not always successfully transform into reality. Why? I believe that most often than not the nuances of the creation or manifestation process is significantly influenced by the purity of the creator’s intent, will and faith in his or her self to actually ‘have’ the desired outcome.

As a transformational coach and consultant, I have had the privilege of assisting individuals and businesses to achieve heightened or expanded levels of success. Throughout the past thirty years, I have identified and facilitated seven fundamental principles that have empowered men and woman to successfully take their idea from being a vision to full realization. These seven simple, yet powerful principles can easily be applied to create success in all areas of a person’s life, work or business endeavor.

Unfailing Success:

  1. Clarity
  2. Confidence
  3. Commitment
  4. Concentration
  5. Communication
  6. Connection
  7. Continuous Right Action

Appreciative Inquiry:

If you as an individual, group or a business are experiencing challenges with attaining or accomplishing a desired outcome, I invite you to ask yourself the following questions and to truthfully answer them:

  1. Do I have a crystal clear vision of what I am aiming to accomplish or attain?
  2. Do I believe that I can realize my vision?
  3. Am I 100% committed to realizing my vision?
  4. Am I willing and able to focus my attention, abilities and resources on the attainment of my vision?
  5. Am I connected to individuals and/or organizations that I can collaborate with, to leverage or pool talent and resources?
  6. Am I effectively communicating my vision?
  7. Have I identified the necessary action steps for realizing my vision? Am I continuously taking the steps? Am I adjusting and updating the steps as required?

If you answered ‘yes’ to each of the above inquiries, then you are well on your way to succeeding. If you answered ‘some what’ or ‘no’ to any of the above questions, then I encourage you to act now on the missing or partially engaged principle. These seven principles will guide you on your journey into new vistas of success. Enjoy your journey.

Mirror Mirror On My World

Mind is the master power that molds and makes,

And we are Mind, and evermore we take

The tool of thought, and shaping what we will,

Bring forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills.

We think in secret, and it comes to pass –

Our world is but our looking glass.

~ James Allen

Appreciative Self-Inquiry:

As I look at every aspect of my life, what personal empowering beliefs are reflected back to me [the areas of my life that I am feeling satisfied and fulfilled] and what personal limiting beliefs am I ready to transform [the areas in my life that I am unhappy and dissatisfied with]?
