The First Step

The first step in any change is releasing the idea that no change is necessary.  Put another way, change can only take place when our beliefs in our old limitations end.   Our ingrained beliefs are very powerful things.  They can actually set up protective barriers to prevent them being released.  They are self-protecting and …

Shifting responsibility

When we are “shifting responsibility”  it means trying to place blame on someone else through carefully crafted wordsmithing.  Call it what you wish, placing the blame on someone else to get us off the hook is bad ju-ju.   Look around you, you know someone in your circle who is very skilled at shirking responsibility for …

Finding Your Own Level

Well, just like about a billion of my closest friends I just finished watching the Super Bowl.  Team favorites aside, the lesson on display during the last half of the game was one to remember.  Down by over 20 points, history against them, odds against them, statistics against them, the Patriots never the less tied the …
