Procrastination Sucks the Life Out of You

Procrastination Sucks the Life Out of You
What are you putting off to tomorrow that can be done today? I know you've been asked this question many times over, and, I could hear your voice echoing, "yeh, yeh, yeh, but..." But, really, when will you do the things you really want to do today rather than put them off until tomorrow?
When the kid(s) graduate. When I lose 30 pounds. When I'm retired. When I feel better. When the snow melts. When the snow falls. When I finish my undergraduate degree. When I get certified.When I meet the 'right' coach.When I have enough money.When I move back home. Blah, blah, blah, but...when? I don't know what it may be for you, at this moment, that is putting you off from doing the things you want to do in life. And, even you may not know what they are. However, you have a choice. You have a choice to be restrained by these reins that are holding you back (usually called beliefs), or to uncover them, face them, …

Allow Your Body to Speak

Allow Your Body to Speak
To move out from the emotional experience you are in, you must first move through the emotional experience, not hurdle over it. Hurdling means to reason or intellectualize. Hurdling means, rather than experience the emotion, you manage to project it outward onto something or someone else instead of feeling and looking within. Hurdling means, you're talking about it rather than being in it. In order to move out of the emotional experience, you must be in it and experience it fully, meaning, moving through it.

If you jump over it, and you don't allow your body to speak to you, life will guarantee you another go around, just a different scene with different people but the same lesson. If you don't allow your body to speak, these emotions stay buried deep within dictating your behaviour and your actions today.

When you bury the emotional experience, the emotions lives within the cells of your body and your subconscious, therefore, you attract all …

Get Grounded in Enthusiasm

Get Grounded in Enthusiasm
Enthusiasm is the mother of effort, and without it nothing great was ever achieved. [Ralph Emerson]
We're coming to the end of 2010, and I'm curious to find out if you started to look back to see your successes, even the ones that you didn't have written down as goals. Many of us are quick to see what we need to do to improve or change ourselves.  So why not first create a solid grounding of enthusiasm that will keep you inspired by asking "What successes did I achieve, beyond my expectations and perhaps others, that were both on my list and not on my list?"

Set the foundation to inspire yourself not only looking at what needs to be done; but, see your successes first. This is not always easy for many of us. We are quick to judge and condemn ourselves, and we look for what we didn't do or what we don't like about ourselves. We don't need anyone else to be hard on us, we are hard enough on ourselves, aren't we?

Are We Too Busy to Enjoy Life?

Are We Too Busy to Enjoy Life
"Everything in your life is there as a vehicle for your transformation. Use it!"
~Ram Dass
Synchronicity is everywhere. It's happening all around you. Have you been divinely connected noticing what messages are in front of you to lead you exactly to your divine right place?

I've noticed more synchronicity in my life than ever before, and to be honest, it's the most wonderful, goose-pimpley feeling you can get. Many times, I ignored them, hurrying to my next project, appointment, or task at hand. That was the past. Today, I've learned to listen more intently. Just when you least expect it, or just in the nick of time when you feel discouraged, exhausted, or confused here comes another message or messages shedding light on what you're not paying attention to. Receiving these so-called coincidental events are such a blessing. It's life speaking to you, showing you exactly what needs to be done next!

I will be back in U…

How To Have a Joyful Life With So Many Priorities

Are We No Longer Enjoying Life Because We Have So Many Priorities
THE SITUATION

In Washington , DC , at a Metro Station, on a cold January morning in 2007, this man with a violin played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time, approximately 2,000 people went through the station, most of them on their way to work. After about 3 minutes, a middle-aged man noticed that there was a musician playing. He slowed his pace and stopped for a few seconds, and then he hurried on to meet his schedule.

About 4 minutes later:
The violinist received his first dollar. A woman threw money in the hat and, without stopping, continued to walk.

At 6 minutes:
A young man leaned against the wall to listen to him, then looked at his watch and started to walk again.

At 10 minutes:A 3-year old boy stopped, but his mother tugged him along hurriedly. The kid stopped to look at the violinist again, but the mother pushed hard and the child continued to walk, turning his head the whole ti…
