Consistency

We depend upon consistency in our lives.  We crave being able to be confident that people around us will be consistent in what they are telling us, how they will react to situations as well as their viewpoints.  We build our world around these “Knowns.”  Problem is; people change their minds, people change their views, …

Look UP!

Look UP!  Yes, I invite you to think about this; when we walk with our heads down we may indeed prevent ourselves from stubbing our toes, but we are far more likely to bump our heads!  In body language, those who walk looking down are out of their power, they are sad, feeling low in …

Don’t take it personally

As I continue my review of the wonderful book by Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements, and compare the suggestions contained in this book shamelessly with those contained in my own book It’s All About Me, today we look at the idea of being more impersonal with our work with others. Certainly somewhere along the line …

Your condition is not your reality

I do not have to define for you what your condition is, your know what your condition is.  Whatever that “condition” is called, it is not your reality.  Is your condition an illness?  Is your condition your relationship status? Is your condition related to your body shape?  No matter how you define your condition, the …

I just don’t see it

No matter how deep the love is someone is offering you, no matter how much money you might have in the bank, no matter how good your health is, if you cannot see it for what it is, it simply does not exist. In It’s All About Me I quote a friend of mine, Ted Farrell, …

Please Like Me!!!

I guess somewhere along the line the phrase “like me” has shifted from being a needy demand and therefore not especially desirable, to being a perfectly normal, healthy  request.  Honestly, I am having a little challenge around that! I do know we have entered a “like” race wherein pages with the most “likes” are deemed …

Paranoia will destroy ya

For the past few weeks it seems every newscast included some mention of a movie which was to be released on Christmas.  Sony Pictures computers were supposedly hacked; e-mails leaked, threats made, and on and on.  At first the blame was laid at the door of North Korea, prompting some people to demand retaliation.  Then …

Gimme My Stuff

OK, so I know you have read my two previous postings: What do you think, and Thinking or Believing, and now you are saying “I thought about it, and saw that I did not actually believe what I was saying, so I realigned my thinking and believing, now, gimme my stuff”.  Well if you managed to …
