A few of my clients came to me because someone gave them a gift of a series of sessions with me. Do you know someone who might be forever grateful to receive such a holiday gift? Is there someone who might be willing to give you coaching as a special present? Or might...
Today we’re looking at the interest-creating power of CHALLENGE.
Today, I’d like to highlight one of the four categories of interest that can help us engage our brains when something important needs to be done – NOVELTY.
Do you have this challenge? You have something that you know is very important to do. BUT you can’t get started on it or you can’t get yourself to complete it.
Do you ever have one of those days when multiple things seem to not go as you had hoped? I think we all have days like that.
Establishing and nurturing meaningful relationships can be a challenge for many of us. If there were a “secret sauce” that might ease your way, wouldn’t you want to know what it is?
Actually letting go of negative thoughts about others (and about ourselves, for that matter) is not as easy as you might think, but, WOW! what a difference it can make in your experience of life. Try it. But be patient with yourself; it requires a lot of practice to achieve this perspective for even a moment, and even more practice to begin to make it a habit.
We devote energy to the pursuit of changed life conditions at the expense of neglecting pursuits that might actually deliver the happiness we are looking for. In fact, “happiness” may not be the best word to describe what we are really looking for. I think what we are actually seeking is better described as fulfillment or deep inner peace.
Most of us find ourselves busily doing many things each day. Sometimes we do these things with strong determination and persistence – convinced that they are important to do. Rarely, do we feel the need to ask ourselves why are we doing what we are doing. We are often operating on auto pilot; we rarely pause to reflect on where we are trying to go and how well what we are doing is moving us in that direction.
The times we live in can also be seen as an ending as well a beginning. Adversity is often the harbinger of much needed change. It all depends on the lens through which we look at it and how we respond.
