Discover What You Really Want – Ask This Question

Kids Know What They Want When I was a child, it was easy. I’d sit down with a cup of hot cocoa, some cookies, and a sheet of paper to write my letter to Santa. I’d tell him everything I wanted for Christmas. I had no trouble identifying what I wanted. I didn’t worry about whether I thought I could have it, how much it cost, or what other people would think. I knew what I wanted and I asked for it! Sometime between those childhood years and becoming an adult, I became much less clear. What I wanted got lost in “shoulds,” obligations, other people’s opinions, and my own judgments. This seems to happen to most of us. We lose touch with what we truly want. And how can we create what we want when we don’t know what that is? If you long for more pleasure, passion, and …

Discover Little Known Secrets for Successful Living!

Being lucky in life is the result of putting yourself into action for good luck to happen to you. You’ve probably heard the statement “The harder I work the luckier I get”. Another way of putting it is “Whatever you are ready for is ready for you.” Are you satisfied with your life, the job you have, or the amount of money you’re making? Or are you not satisfied with the feeling that life is somehow passing you by? Chances are one of these reasons fits you because most people aren’t satisfied with their lives, and usually one of those reasons is the cause. Success is not a spectator sport, something that just happens before your eyes. It’s an experience, a game that must be played to be enjoyed fully. You need to get involved with life. You’ll need to get more involved with your family, friends, people you see …

Discover How You, Too, Can Have It All

Impossible? No – or yes, depending on how you see yourself and your environment. So much depends on our own perceptions and on our ability to discover that abundance is not just for others. If, consistently, we have more month than money it is natural to think that that’s the way it is and that there’s not much we can do to change it. Bosses don’t exactly dish out largess, do they? They run their business to make a profit and most of them tend not to pay employees over the odds. For this and a myriad of other reasons, debt is increasingly common … and when we are heavily in debt despair can quickly follow on. That is a sad fact of life. But by changing our thinking we can change our circumstances. Not overnight, of course. Nothing is that simple. The thing to remember is that contrary to …

Dip into Self Insight and Professional Growth

How to relate to self-insight by examining the cognitive approach Revolutionary changes unfolded in the past three decades whereas new points were brought into focus by psychology studiers, experts, and scientists. For this reason, we often see cognition (the ability to acquire knowledge) which is the mental faculties or processes that acquire knowledge by using perceptions, intuitions, and reasoning. This process has taking the lead over the 20th century disputes and theories that lead to behaviorist approaches. At one point, the C.E.O. workers aboard the psychology department were asked a question. The question revolved around cognitive approaches, which eight of the ten professionals agreed that cognition took the front. Many points has been issued that presented many views and questions. Many of these questionable views stream from the Western Philosophers, (Philosophy of the mind) and (Sciences of the mind) and behaviorists (sciences of behaviors) — (Westen, 2005) Jean Piaget became …

Digging For Gold

When I was a young boy in Santa Cruz, California I used to help my grandfather in the fields by his home. This was not his land but back in those days it was not unusual to barter with the neighbors to work it for them so he could grow the vegetables that he loved. He would then share them with the neighbor for payment. He grew corn, beans, peas, zucchini, cucumbers and garlic. And nobody could grow bigger dahlias than my grandfather. As I worked along side him he used to love to tell this story of a man named Giuseppe (Joe) and his wife who moved to a new farm with their three sons. They were settling into the new community when a nearby farmer told Joe that there was gold in the dirt of his new property. Joe took that statement as that there was actual gold …

Did You Know You’re Bleeding Money Because Of The Darn Phone??

You’re in the midst of work then … Aw… man. Or you’re finishing a 97% complete report then …. Okay. Familiar? I can imagine your blood pressure rising when that happens. What is an interruption? An interruption is anything that seizes your attention from an activity you have chosen to do to for an activity that someone else has purposely or inadvertently chosen for you. Interruptions are normally random and without any consideration for the importance of, or impact on, your time and your personal priorities. Interruptions chew up time and energy. They cost you loads of money if you consder wasted man hours. There are two primary causes of interruptions you face daily at home or at the office: telephones and people dropping by. The telephone rings, and you automatically pause what you are doing to answer it. The doorbell rings, and the same thing happens regardless of the …

Did You Fall Into The Biggest Trap of Goal Setting?

Goal Setting! It’s a wonderful thing. All you have to do is set a goal and now your life is on easy street. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. But wait a minute, I thought goal setting is all the rage? All I have to do is set a goal, everything becomes clear and all my next steps instantly appear. I guess that is possible, but you must avoid the biggest trap of goal setting. What about your big goals that haven’t happened yet? Most likely they will provide you with a very positive pay off and be good for all those around you. Is it just a cake walk when you go after your goals or are there obstacles? You have probably already encountered obstacles or you would have everything you ever wanted. What are these obstacles? Well, there is a huge variety of them. They can be physical, …

Did You Check Your Confidence Level?

Would you like to be confident? Your answer may be – YES. I do want to be confident. However, this answer lacks the impact. It is too generalized. Just like everybody wants to do well in life and be rich but not many ever realize this wish. This is because to actually get somewhere in life, you need to quantify your confidence. You need to define the task for which you need to be confident so that you can execute it successfully. A mere wish to be confident won’t take you anywhere. The dream must have a deadline as well! Self Confidence might mean different things to different people groups. For a child it might mean to be able to recite the poem to her teacher the next morning. For a business executive it might mean to be able to present the business report to the Board of Directors. For …

The Road to Intuition

Have you had that experience when all of a sudden you just had this huge hunch that something is about to happen, and to your surprise, that intuition was eventually translated to reality? When you feel strongly about something without logical basis to it, that’s called intuition. It comes in three impressions: clairvoyance or “the third eye”, sensing clearly and feeling through listening. Clairvoyance is when your eye goes beyond what it can see. This is when you know what is happening somewhere. Sensing clearly is basically what we refer to as “hunch” or “gut feel.” This is the time when you are overwhelmed with a feeling and you can’t explain it and all you can say is “I just know.” On the other hand, feeling through listening or clairaudience is being able to “listen” between the lines. Intuition also happens at times when a certain sound, whatever it is …

Development Of The

Last week I noticed my brother trying to teach my three year old niece to say “I” – “I would like an apple…, I would like some grapes…” But she insisted that it should be said, “Vaishali wants an apple, Vaishali wants some grapes…!” Have you ever tried arguing with a three year old? And what is more, she was right. Because right now at the age of three, she has not started to create her identity. When you are born, you are whole, complete and perfect. Then what happens? The illusions of life begin to shroud your vision of reality as you begin to create your own map of the world. In fact, the creation of the identity occurs because of the basic principle that we are “meaning making machines.” Something happens in our life and we pass the information about the situation through the filters of deletion, distortion …

Developing Your Inner Spiritual Guidance

As the world becomes more connected through the technologies of communication, it is also becoming easier to become disconnected from our own selves. The necessary quiet time that develops our natural, inborn connection with intuition and spiritual guidance is no longer easily found in our daily lives, and this can cause feelings of overwhelm, meaninglessness, and an inner sense of disharmony and emptiness. In today’s world as we face unprecedented challenges both individually and collectively, there is also a very high level of daily stress that is constantly affecting our bodies, minds and emotions. Our daily lives are filled with intensity as we witness widespread social, political and climate change, uncertainty about the future, and fear of the unknown. If these weren’t enough, there is also the effect of greater spiritual light expanding on the Earth, which is helping us to awaken spiritually, but is also creating a major cleansing …

Developing the “Both and” Mindset

Clients often share a situation or challenge with me and as their consultant they ask me to advise them on a course of action. Often during the conversation, the Client will identify two distinctly different courses of action – that may at first seem to be in opposition. The question is basically formatted as an “either or” question – “Should I do A or B?” Often, my answer is “yes.” After getting a confused look, I explain that the answer lies not in one or the other of the alternatives, but in exploring and doing both. This is what I call “both and” thinking. Collins and Porras in their book Built to Last call it “avoiding the Tyranny of the OR, and embracing the Genius of AND.” “Either or” thinking is pervasive in our world. Let’s take the example of the common phrase, “black or white.” When we think of …

Developing Self-Discipline And Moderation

What is self-discipline exactly, and why is it important? I think many people in our modern society struggle with self-control (I know I do). There are so many temptations staring us in the face each day. Advertising is purposely geared to appeal to our emotional desires of wanting to be attractive, admired, successful and content. We are always on the search for the next best thing that will make us feel better about ourselves or enhance our lives in some way. There is nothing wrong or immoral about our desires, except for one thing: When we consistently allow the desires of the “flesh” (i.e. physical selves) to overtake our minds and spirits, we eventually become very weak, and it becomes harder and harder to resist further temptation. Before we know it, we are unable to resist even the smallest desire, and we lose control of ourselves and our lives. We …

Developing Patience

Webster’s defines be patient as bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint, or being steadfast despite opposition, difficulty or adversity. I believe this why patience is called a virtue. It is little practiced, but much needed. At the first sign of difficulty, many jump to an easier, smoother path, hoping to avoid the pain and suffering that is necessary on the road to personal growth. But it is only by taking this rough road do we gain the experience necessary to develop our character. Impatience robs us of these types of life experiences. How would your world be different if you practiced more patience? Patience is the ability to hang on when everyone else has given up. Patience is ability to release your need for immediate gratification and wait for the things to come in their own time frame. Patience overcomes criticism and intolerance. Patience develops committed relationships in …
