Letting Go


Have you ever wondered why you hold onto emotional and physical pain longer than needed?  There is a belief that we create and maintain problems to give us a sense of identity – to define who we are – to give us purpose.

Do you know of anyone who creates problems and then swoops in to save the day? Or someone who creates problems to then play the role of victim for sympathy and attention?

These behaviors, whether in ourselves or around us are due to the need to replay our past mistakes like a broken record in our minds which in turn builds feelings of shame and regret.  Carrying these burdens dictates the actions we take in the now.  In addition, we hold onto worry and frustration about the future creating unnecessary stress.  Stress has been linked to numerous health issues and the majority of us live with this fabricated stress every day treating is as our normal state.Letting Go

We all know that if we put a little energy to something we get a little out… the same holds true for letting go.  By letting just a little of your past and future regrets, you obtain a little peace in your life but if you let go of a lot, then you will bring in a lot of peace.  More peace equals less stress!  Isn’t the formula we all desire?

Here is a sampling of actions you can take today to begin to let go of the pain and allow peace into your mind and body:

  1. Meditation/Yoga
  2. Physical Activity
  3. Learn a new skill
  4. List out your accomplishments and continue to add to the list daily
  5. Focus your energy on that which you CAN control and not that which you CAN’T control
  6. Engage in a creative project (painting, crafts, gardening, book club)
  7. Write a letter to whomever you hold your anger for, then burn the letter
  8. Take responsibility for you could have done better
  9. Wear a rubberband on your wrist and pull it every time you begin to obsess on the angry thoughts
  10. Have gratitude for the positive memories and know that life is a learning experience
  11. Visualize how you were before the event and know that you now can be that again
  12. Take deep breaths and focus on your breath when you feel angry

BackpackerAnd lastly, fill a backpack with rocks representing your past hurts and take a hike.  When you are ready, remove one rock at a time, naming the rock with a specific memory or person or event that has brought you pain and release it.  You may find that you have packed more rocks than actual pains!

Letting go allows you to make space in your life for new and exciting adventures, experiences, loves, memories.  Letting go brings you inner peace and reduces stress.  Letting go allows you to view the world with new eyes ready to create, build and live that life you have always dreamt about.

Law of Prosperity


Spirit never expresses itself other than pure perfection, therefore, whatever imperfections do exist are always the result of our individual or collective thoughts.  Because this is true, it is not necessary that you hold onto anything for fear of losing it.  In fact, you will never truly enjoy anything you must hold onto because freedom in all areas of your life is absolutely essential for you to grow into the truly great human being that you are able to become.

These obstructions that we harbor are doubt, guilt, resentment, and thoughts of lack or limitation, including any negative ideas which have a tendency to block the flow of creative energy to and through you.

Prosperity

When we hold onto these obstructions, we are unable to make room for the image which we are trying to create. We must resolve to letting go of all of these obstructions so that we can make space in our lives for the good that we desire.

Make room for the new you that you are creating and for that which you desire. Allowing your mind to fill with things that you have no use for stalls your ability to achieve that which you want. Let go. Make space for all the good that is awaiting you.
Make room for new clothes – for the new you that you are creating.  Make room for that which you desire.  Not only do I encourage you to physically clean out your closet, I have metaphorically shown you how our minds get cluttered with those things that we no longer have a use for.  It is time to clean house and let go.  You must continuously make  space for the good that you desire – this is an exercise you will practice for the rest of your life. Let go of the old so you may make room for the new.

ACTION STEP #1 ~ Utilize the Lesson Evaluation Form and evaluate yourself regarding your doubt, guilt, resentment, and thoughts of lack or limitation. Where can you choose differently in these areas?

ACTION STEP #2 ~ What is one area you can make space for the new? 

ACTION STEP #3 ~ Take Action! Let go of what might be holding you back and make space for the new and the good! 

As you read this, TODAYRIGHT NOW can be one of those DECISION POINTS. Today can be the day you discover your potential. Today can be the day you spread your wings and start SOARING! All it takes is DEFINING the VISION, DISCIPLINING the FOCUS and ACHIEVING POSITIVE LEGACY!

Law of Vibration


change-your-vibrationWe are all connected.  If you took a powerful microscope and viewed your hand, you would not be able to differentiate where your hand begins and ends.  All things are in a constant state of vibration.  The only difference between one thing and another is in the density or amplitude of vibration. Therefore, we are all connected.

When you have a thought – your brain sends out vibrations.  Sometimes these are positive thoughts and sometimes these are negative thoughts.  Either way, the vibrations are sent out.  If you concentrate on a thought, you are increasing the density or amplitude of the vibration of those cells and the electric waves become more potent.

Those electrical waves are originating in your mind and you are choosing the density of the vibrations.  Think about how powerful that is – you are choosing the density of the vibrations of your thoughts!

Everything is a manifestation of the same thing. The difference is the rate of vibration or frequency.  When you are in harmony with something, you resonate with it – you are in harmonious vibration.

By concentrating on and sending out vibrations of an image in your mind, in the present tense, you are vibrating in harmony with every particle of energy that is necessary for the manifestation of your image on the physical plane.  By holding that image, those particles of energy are moving toward you and you toward them – that is the law of vibration.

Think about the law of vibration – take some time to really think about this – ask questions – gather information – form an idea – test this law.

You will see that through the law of vibration, you will attract to you exactly that which you resonate with, that which you are in harmony with, that which you expend energy thinking about.  If you think about lack – you attract lack.  If you think about abundance – you attract abundance.

ACTION STEP #1 ~ Utilize the Lesson Evaluation Form and evaluate yourself regarding the vibrations you are sending out and you are receiving.

ACTION STEP #2 ~ What is one step you can take to increase your level of vibration when it comes to those things you say you want? Write it down and take action.

ACTION STEP #3 ~ Take Action! 

As you read this, TODAYRIGHT NOW can be one of those DECISION POINTS. Today can be the day you discover your potential. Today can be the day you spread your wings and start SOARING! All it takes is DEFINING the VISION, DISCIPLINING the FOCUS and ACHIEVING POSITIVE LEGACY!

Inspiration


 

InspirationWhere does your inspiration come from? Does it come from your family? Is it passed down generation to generation?  Is it your grade school teacher? Your big sister?  Your relationship with your creator? Where do you get your inspiration and how do you channel it?

We all hit a block at some point in life – sometimes more than we care to talk about and we need a little inspiration to re-light our fire and let our creativity flow freely again.

This morning, do you remember waking up and what you did for that first hour?  Can you recount all the motions you went through?  If not, then you need some inspiration.  You need to mix up your routine and throw in some spontaneity into your life.  Stop and smell the roses.

The older we get, the busier our lives become and we take for granted all those little things that we were in such awe of as a child.  It’s time for a life reboot – to untether ourselves from our everyday doldrums and take a moment or two to see what we have been missing for a long time now.

It is time to get inspired!

  1. Have a plan – not a detailed plan – but something that you would like to stop and do for a moment that you have either wanted to do for a long time and couldn’t find the time or something that you used to do that you miss very much.  But not too planned – in the event while executing your plan you find yourself wanting to do something else, be flexible and go with the flow.
  2. Pay attention to your surroundings.  Smell the flowers, notice the older couple holding hands, see the children running through the park, smile at the dog with the pink studded collar… don’t follow the tour guide at the museum – be your own tour guide and spend longer at an exhibit really taking in the intricacies of the piece.gorillia smelling the flowers
  3. Document your experience.  Bring your camera and whatever else you need to capture these moments.
  4. Bring a friend.  Take the time to explore somewhere with someone you care about and share this experience.  Create memories.
  5. Stay away from subways.  Sounds odd but if you are travelling underground how do you get to enjoy what is happening?  Walk if you can and then when you need to rest – find a place to sit and people watch.  Recharge your internal batteries and then go again.

Don’t look for inspiration.  That sounds funny but this is an exercise in creating inspiration through your environment and not by creating false inspiration through planned events.  Be free and enjoy what is already around you!

ACTION STEP #1 ~ Utilize the Lesson Evaluation Form and evaluate yourself regarding your inspirational abilities. What areas in your life can you become more INSPIRED?

ACTION STEP #2 ~ What is one step you can take to increase your INSPIRATION when it comes to those things you say you want? Write it down and take action.

ACTION STEP #3 ~ Take Action! Look for things that inspire you and better yet contribute and inspire others. 

As you read this, TODAYRIGHT NOW can be one of those DECISION POINTS. Today can be the day you discover your potential. Today can be the day you spread your wings and start SOARING! All it takes is DEFINING the VISION, DISCIPLINING the FOCUS and ACHIEVING POSITIVE LEGACY!

The Law of Curiosity


In John Maxwell’s Book “The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth” Law Number 12 is the Law of Curiosity…this law states:

Growth is Stimulated by Asking Why?

“Some men see things as they are and ask why.

Others dream things that never were and ask why not!”

~ George Bernard Shaw

3d_man_and_question_mark

Where does curiosity come from you might ask? Are we born with it or do we discover it?

My belief is that we are born curious. If you don’t believe me take a look at a young child, as they move from an infant to a toddler…..their world is nothing but curiosity. They crawl and find things..and where is the first place it goes……right into their mouth! See, that is their world…it is how they discover..through taste, then through feel…that is why they lick the television!

As we grow, sometimes this curiosity is programmed out of us. How many times were you told, “Curiosity Killed the Cat!” The second part of that statement that we were seldom told was “Satisfaction Brought it Back!”

Curious people possess a thirst for knowledge. They are always interested in life, people, ideas, new experiences. They aways live in a state of wanting more. These are the dreamers that look at things that never were and ask why not!

Asking why not verses why will open our mind to the reception, the new frequency of a new idea. See, the answer to the why, gives us a response to ‘why‘ and can be a danger, a danger of limiting our curiosity to look at new ways.

How to Cultivate Curiosity?

I so love being around curious people, people that are always excited for the new learning and the knowledge. The best thing I enjoy about these types of people, is that their mindset is contagious. These are the people that will move an organization forward, new products, new ways to do things. These are the people that create! Create things that we didn’t even know we needed.

Steve Jobs was one of those……he was a master of curiosity, he was always asking why not. Henry Ford was another. When he was told that his dream of have an opposing cylinder V8 engine was impossible, he didn’t believe them, he kept asking “Why Not?” He challenged the common sense of the situation.

First Step!

reaching_for_the_stars2_pc_1600_clr_2462

If you are reading this and you are not curious, you may be asking “How Do I Start?”

Believe You Can Be Curious!

Most people today are filled with limiting beliefs, lack of personal self confidence and self-esteem. These issues, these limiting beliefs put the limitation on our thinking. They stop us from asking “Why Not?” They stop us, not from the lack of capacity, but because they are unwilling to break free and expand their beliefs.

Maxwell Maltz in his book Psycho-cybernetics, clearly defines that we cannot perform on the outside, if it does not match who we are inside.

BUT! Here is the great news, we can change our thinking and as a result our life.

Importance of Belief


Belief

It is essential to have an attitude of believing the best in others; understanding this concept can have its challenges.

The self-fulfilling prophecy refers to the idea that when someone creates a belief in something that is not yet true, and expects something with certainty, it will become true.  With people, it suggests that as we communicate our expectations, they will conform and deliver the appropriate results.

When working with people, this is critical.  When you express a lack of confidence in someone, it is returned with mediocrity, however if you believe in them and expect them to do well, research has shown that they will live up to that expectation.

What we expect, all too often, is exactly what we get.

The four key principles of the self-fulfilling prophecy:

  • We form certain expectations, or beliefs, of people or events based on our own perceptions and experiences
  • We communicate those expectations through our behaviors in a way that we would not have done without the belief
  • People generally respond by adjusting their behavior to match
  • The result is that the original expectation becomes reality

Based on these principles, we can conclude that the expectations leaders place on their team determines the quality of the teams’ output. A study of 100 self-made millionaires  has shown that the most common characteristic in the group was the desire and ability to see the good in others. They were people builders, not critics. They empowered and supported their team to be their very best through positive means.

Believing the best in people is a critical piece of building successful viable relationships.

ACTION STEP #1 ~ Utilize the Lesson Evaluation Form and evaluate yourself regarding your beliefs and expectations.

ACTION STEP #2 ~ Assess these Beliefs and Expectations and determine the impact they are having on you and those around you.

ACTION STEP #3 ~ If your Beliefs and Expectations are not moving you towards your goal or are stopping you in your relationships……Take Action to change them!

Generosity


generosity-no-text

Generosity is the selfless act of giving with no expectation of anything in return.  The beauty of being a generous person is that even though intentions are to receive nothing in return, the giver in fact receives tenfold.

How can that be?  Why if being generous is so fruitful more people would engage in this behavior?  Simple, in today’s society, we are accustomed to the hear and now –  at microwave speed.  I give you something and you give me something in return right now – today – this minute.  Immediate gratification.

If I donate my time and energy for a cause that is fundraising money to build clean water wells in Haiti, I won’t see the fruit of my labor today and in fact I may never see it in my lifetime.  But giving from my heart – giving knowing that a person who drinks from that well won’t be knocking on my door handing me a couple bucks for my time, but knowing that a person will one day be drinking clean healthy water and live a healthier better life because I took the time is worth more than a couple bucks.  I traded my time to help someone better their life.   And we may never meet.

I didn’t need that instant gratification.  What I got back was knowing that somewhere, someone in the future is benefiting from something I did today.  I gave of myself knowing I will not get anything tangible in return.  I gave from my heart.

We can give of ourselves each and every day by smiling at a stranger, helping an elderly person put groceries in their car, working at a food bank, shoveling a neighbor’s driveway, cutting someone’s lawn… that selfless act of paying it forward through generosity.  What a beautiful concept. I think this graphic displays the true results of generosity. Thanks to www.generositypath.comgenerosity-spiral-both-vertical

ACTION STEP #1 ~ Utilize the Lesson Evaluation Form  to assess your generosity and find ways to increase it in your life. Also start monitoring how you are feeling during the opportunity to be generous. This can be through a daily journal. Document the feeling and assess the impact it is having on you reaching your goal.

ACTION STEP #2 ~ Develop a mindset of generosity. This does not have to be only financial. Be aware of what the feelings are when you are generous and when you withhold generosity.

ACTION STEP #3 ~ Practice true generosity and watch how the world around you changes and what opportunities come into your life.

ACTION STEP BONUS – Be generous with this blog, share it and send it onto someone who you think might need these words today!

Forgiveness


forgiveness

Ask anyone you meet if they have ever been hurt by another.  You will hear a resounding YES! Now, ask how they handled the hurt and you will hear many different stories about resentment, revenge, internalizing, depression, anger, and sadness but few stories about forgiveness.  Why?  Why would anyone hold onto pain if they don’t have to?  What is it in our nature to harbor ill feelings or hold onto past pain?  Studies show that holding onto emotional pain transpires into physical illness.  Dis-ease has been linked to our mental well-being.  If we have the power to heal ourselves, where do we start?

Some call it letting go; others call it forgiving.  Not only forgiving others, but  forgiving ourselves.  Forgiving someone doesn’t mean denying the other person’s responsibility for hurting you.  Forgiving someone isn’t excusing the act.  Forgiveness is a practice for compassion, empathy, kindness and peace.

Forgiveness is letting go of the need for revenge and releasing negative thoughts of bitterness and resentment.

For some people, the beginning stage or a beginning stage of forgiveness is anger. They feel angry at someone who did or said something to them in a way that brought about harm or pain or sadness or disappointment. We feel stung and pained.  Sometimes surprised. Burned. Crushed. Upset. Stunned.

The anger we hold exists as a response to pain that has been inflicted or that we feel has been inflicted on us. We can stay stuck in this angry place for a long time. In fact, some people stay there forever. And I angerdon’t have to tell you that being stuck in anger is not fun. In fact, it can suck the life out of a person. It can be all consuming in the most negative way.

Holding pain inside is a breeding ground for negative feelings.  Negative feelings in turn come out through anger, resentment, and the desire to seek vengeance.  Negative feelings also keep us from enjoying the present; turning into depression and anxiety ultimately sabotaging those relationships we hold so dear.

Most people hold in these feelings, the pain, the anger, keeping the negativity and the poison inside, allowing it to grow and fester and expand. The strength of the anger is in direct proportion to the amount of pain, of anger, that we hold inside. Don’t get me wrong, anger is not always a bad thing. We need to feel it in order to eventually let it go. Trying to hide the anger or stuff it way down or dismiss it is not going to make it go away. In fact, it is going to make it worse. Because it is only once we allow ourselves to feel the anger and acknowledge what it feels like, and that we feel it in the first place, we can set the stage for letting it go. And only through letting it go can we truly forgive. The opposite of letting it go is holding it tight and allowing it to eat us alive.  The opposite of letting it go is withholding love. It is holding on to little complaints and little grievances one at a time. Maybe slowly, but certainly surely, we start to become toxic around this issue. And this issue can and often does spawn off additional other issues. The more this cycle continues, the more your growth is stunted. Your dreams are thwarted. Your energy is sapped and sucked out until you have little left for yourself or anyone else.

Practicing forgiveness is a commitment to change.  Moving away from a victim role and taking a more proactive and positive stance on your well-being will move you toward a more peaceful and enjoyable life.

forgiveness2

Sometimes an act seems unforgivable.  Place yourself in their shoes.  Consider how you would have reacted or behaved if it were you. Accept that we are all human and have occasional imperfections. With any decision to make a change, journaling is an easy way to document and reflect on your feelings, which will help move you toward your goal.

Forgiveness is within you, there is no guarantee it will change the offender or future acts and therefore it is important for you to know that forgiving someone may not give you the immediate outcome you desire – this is an internal practice that will ultimately change your external world – it is a personal practice and not a means to change someone else.

ACTION STEP #1 ~ Utilize the Lesson Evaluation Form and evaluate yourself regarding forgiveness and assess where these might be stopping you!

ACTION STEP #2 ~ Determine who must be forgiven.

ACTION STEP #3 ~ Take Action! Go to those that need to be forgiven…….and remember to look at starting with yourself first!

As you read this, TODAYRIGHT NOW can be one of those DECISION POINTS. Today can be the day you discover your potential. Today can be the day you spread your wings and start SOARING! All it takes is DEFINING the VISION, DISCIPLINING the FOCUS and ACHIEVING POSITIVE LEGACY!

Fear


Fear is critical to our survival!

It keeps us protected from legitimate threats and danger.  If we only had life threatening fears, we’d be a very different society.  Instead, we have additional irrational fears based on traumas, bad experiences, or those all too often handed down fears from our ill-advised relatives.the_closet_monster_1600_clr_5623

Looking at your fears, take a quick inventory in your head of what you are afraid of.  Heights is usually at the top of the list and a legitimate fear, although some go to extremes, but there is a danger element in falling.  What else makes your list?  Wild animals? Spiders? Rejection? Pain? Flying? Swimming? Public Speaking? Relationships? People? The color blue?

Fears are thoughts that we create based on experiences either that we have had or others have had and have imprinted onto our minds.  Yes, sometimes we accept and take on the fears of others. These fears are created, perpetuated and held in our minds, sometimes even becoming too intense and then we develop anxieties and find our fears crippling our progress.

One definition of Fear I have heard and really like is False Evidence Appearing Real!

By giving in and accepting our fears, we cannot move forward.  We cannot grow.  We are stopped in our tracks.  For example, fear of failure is common in varying degrees.  It keeps people from progressing in their careers, relationships, commitments.  People who exhibit this fear tend to stay in dead end jobs, stay in bad marriages, take the hand that’s dealt to them.  Accepting life as is and not daring to risk failing, so why bother, why try?  How about fear of rejection?  I’m not good enough anyway… I can’t do that job, I don’t have the credentials or experience and they won’t like me anyway…

I have also seen a fear of success stop people. I love this quote: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.” ~ Marianne Williamson

So frustrating, right?  We all know someone like this.  Maybe it’s us?  Maybe we need a little push, a little self confidence, a realization that the fear we carry with us is made up, make believe. We can change our thinking and let go of whatever trauma we hold on to that makes the fear so real – so tangible – so part of our lives that we accepted long ago that it just is.

The key to change...is to let go of fearSometimes we need help from others to work through our fears.  A great coaching relationship will help us address and move past these fears. Sometimes we need a trusting mentor to show us the way, to gently guide us on our journey and break free of these fear chains we have grown to “love” so much. It is very hard to rid ourselves of these fears on our own…why cause they are our fears!

ACTION STEP #1 ~ Utilize the Lesson Evaluation Formand evaluate yourself regarding fear and assess where these might be stopping you!

ACTION STEP #2 ~ Determine the validity of those fears. Are they irrational fears? Are they fears that you can overcome with help?

ACTION STEP #3 ~ Consider a coach or mentor to work with you to overcome these fears and move past the barriers that stop you from achieving your full potential.

Enthusiasm


10337420Enthusiasm is that place between perseverance and defeat.  It is what makes someone stay motivated and keep going and others give up and quit.  Enthusiasm.

So how does one get it and how does one keep it?  Look at your own life experiences to times when you lost your desire to work at something whether it was a marriage, a career, or something less dramatic as painting a room.  So you didn’t finish the room or you were too tired to touch up the trim.  Maybe you don’t call it quitting because it is insignificant on the giant spectrum of life but with something like a marriage or career, the results could be disastrous.

Imagine you want something so wonderful – so out of reach – anything – a car, a career, a house, a spouse, a smaller waistline, whatever it is – imagine it.  Do you feel energy inside you – don’t worry about how you will get it – just imagine it.  The how isn’t important – release that from your mind.  OK, you have that image now.  Now think about that every day.  That image.  Keep that image alive.  Every time you think about it you can add more detail to it.  If it were a house, you can start to add furniture and accessorize the house.  The color of the walls, the carpet or tile or wood flooring.  The light fixtures.  Every time you think about it feel the energy.  That energy is enthusiasm.

So now you know what that feels like – let’s build on that feeling and keep it alive.  You have a job to do, some task, and you aren’t feeling too motivated or enthusiastic about it.  You can use self-talk to give you energy.  You know that if you do it now you will be grateful later.  You know that this task is the right thing to do and the benefits will outweigh the energy spent on the task now.  Focus on the end result to build your motivation.

Sustain enthusiasm by understanding what the outcome is to your actions.  Enthusiasm is an emotion that you show and feel and sometimes when you aren’t feeling so enthusiastic about something, you can pretend to be and the more you pretend, you trick your mind into believing that you actually are enthusiastic.  It is a phenomenon that will help you sustain your enthusiasm when you aren’t feeling very motivated or full of energy.

Being enthusiastic about a task at hand will spill into other areas of your life and you will see that your positive enthusiastic attitude will lighten up a room.  You will become that person others are drawn to.

ACTION STEP #1 ~ Utilize the Evaluation Form  to assess enthusiasm and find ways to increase it in your life. Also start monitoring how you are feeling during times of trials and tribulations. This can be through a daily journal. Document the  feeling and assess the impact it is having on you reaching your goal.

ACTION STEP #2 ~ Develop a mantra, saying or some way to break the defeating emotion and bring back the excitement and enthusiasm.

ACTION STEP #3 ~ Practice true enthusiasm and watch how the tasks become easier and more fun!
