An Ultimate Lifestyle Secret – The Power Of Integrity

Wikipedia defines integrity in the following way. “Integrity is the basing of one’s actions on an internally consistent framework of principles. Depth of principles and adherence of each level to the next are key determining factors. One is said to have integrity to the extent that everything he does and believes is based on the same core set of values. Behaviors within the concept of integrity include: honesty, sincerity, truthfulness, keeping one’s word and agreements, punctuality, ethics, fairness and justice.” The power of integrity is realized when you discover that everything you do and say is guided by the above behaviors. When they become the yardstick by which your life is guided, you have the power, the will and the …

An Old Message For A New Age

Do you consider yourself a seeker? I have a feeling if you’re reading this article, you do. If so, how exactly do you define it? What does it mean to you to be a “seeker?” For me, the definition is constantly in process of clarifying itself, shifting in and out of focus as I ask, “What is it that I’m seeking?” There have been times – days, weeks, months, dare I say years – that it felt like wandering, lost and lonely, in search of a nameless, faceless something that seemed forever before me, but like a mirage, moving farther away the closer I drew. I could not grasp it, but I knew that when found it would make all …

An Interesting Twist On Success Breeding Failure

I make it a habit of listening to successful people. I read their books, and follow their articles, and research some of the same topics of interest they have. I wish I had known this secret when I first started in business 30 years ago. Lou Gerstner is known as the man who turned IBM around. He stepped in as CEO in 1993. The company was bleeding to death internally and literally had 100 days left before it would run out of money. Saving one of the biggest companies that ever existed must have been an extremely difficult under-taking for Gerstner and reading his story is definitely a must. I found myself inquisitive about something he said during a CNN …

An Immensely Rewarding Philosophy I’d Like To Share With You

“May my soul bloom in love for all existence.” Rudolf Steiner Does this sound familiar? Paul wanted to change some situations in his life. He wanted to be able to go into a room full of people and feel confident. He wanted to be in a meeting at work and feel comfortable and go for a bigger contracts so he could earn the extra money for his family to live without penny pinching. But something stopped him. He’d tried hiding from his failings for a long time, but he admitted he’d got to the point where he now hated himself and was beginning to resent his family. He’d tried a confidence workshop, he’d tried reading books, he’d even tried just …

An Example Of Allowing A Desire To Arrive On Its Own

I don’t know why, but it seems we trip over the “allowing” part of the Deliberate Attraction formula more often than the other two parts. The Deliberate Attraction formula gives us a simple description of how to leverage the Law of Attraction so we can attract more of what we DO want and enjoy. The three steps are simply: 1) Become very clear about what you DO want. 2) Raise your internal vibration, through removing doubts and fears, so you are a vibrational match for your desire. 3) Allow your desire to come to you. Much has been written already about the first two steps. You’ll find lots of personal stories and succinct teaching in my articles at YouCanHaveItAll.com. But …

An Atypical Success

Melba Rae likely never traveled the world. It’s likely that she never rode in a limousine. She had none of the trappings of fame and there was probably very little fortune. She was just an ordinary woman that was extraordinary in her ordinary profession. Most of us have many teachers in our life. As we think back on our years in school we can often recall the names and some of the characteristics but there are not many who have a lasting place in our hearts. Melba Rae was different. I am sure that she holds a lasting place in every one of her student’s hearts. High School students tend to think that they are all grown up. Of course, …

An Attitude of Gratitude

Well, it’s Thanksgiving again for the Canadians, and here in Germany we have celebrated our Erntedankfest, but anytime of the year is a good time to practice an attitude of gratitude. William James said, “The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind. “ So many times people become discontent with their lives and surroundings and is it any wonder? There is a whole industry set up to make us feel inadequate. We are not thin enough, or not rich enough, or not hip enough because we are not buying the latest products on the market. The message rings loud and clear: We are not good enough!!! . How …

An Attitude Change Is The Biggest Change You Will Ever Make

You may have heard it said before that an attitude change is easy. All you have to do is change everything about yourself. As crazy as it seems, it’s the truth. A change in your attitude will eventually involve everything about you. It’s easy and yet, the fact that you have to keep at it day after day after day is what makes it really hard. An attitude change requires a long term perseverance that few people have. That’s what makes it the biggest change you will ever make. Attitude changes typically take place when something monumental happens in a person’s life that suddenly makes them see everything differently. This may be a near-death experience or some kind of tragedy …

Alternative Ways To Help Quit Smoking

The methods used to help a person quit smoking are as varied as smokers themselves. Some people find that they can quit smoking just by will power alone, going cold turkey and butting out forever. Others may find that in order to stop smoking they may have to enlist the help of others in the form of a support group or other network. Others turn to methods such as the patch or some types of chewing gum. As cultures begin to merge, however, there are more and more medical practices that have previously been unknown to Western science that may have many benefits to those who wish to stop smoking. Some of these alternative methods are discussed in this article. …

Alleviating Suffering

When we see real and unavoidable suffering all around us—on television and even within our own communities and families—we may experience helplessness or guilt. We know that these two responses do not serve others yet we don’t know what else to do sometimes. It may seem particularly indulgent and selfish to focus on ourselves when others are struggling with basic survival. How can we let ourselves get wrapped up in figuring out whether we should go back to school, start a new career, or even what to do about a problematic relationship while others are worried about having enough food or shelter or medicine? The answer I offer is that it is an illusion to think in such either/or terms. …

Anger and Hurt; another lonely place!

Being human can really be challenging, to say the least. We feel emotions with every breath we take, every move we make. Some emotions are so sweet that we never want to lose that feeling. Other emotions cause us so much anger and hurt that we are paralyzed with pain. Our minds use anger as a memory of a hurt that we have experienced. The memory is usually due to the fact that we neglected to express our hurt at the time for one reason or another. We tend to not show our anger or hurt because we do not want to cause a conflict or hurt another’s feelings or ever admit those feelings. We also hang onto it because …

Anger: To Control or To Learn

Many of us will do anything to avoid another’s anger, yet may be quick to anger ourselves. Many of us dread another’s anger yet continue to use our own anger as a way to control others.
