change your life by changing your perspective

On fear and it's impact on life.

I spend my days trying to teach kids that those fears we harbor inside ourselves can actually keep us from achieving, doing or becoming what we want most. They inhibit success and can trap us. Nothing is worse than not knowing what could have been, that is why you just need to reach for your dreams and get over being afraid to fail. I am not sure exactly what shaped my thoughts on fear. I know when my mom felt trapped in marriages I picked up on it but I think there must have been something more that made me so set on moving beyond fear. Fear is supposed to help protect us from injury right? Walking down a dark alley makes you fearful because it is a bad situation and you...

Reflections on past present and future.

Do you reflect on your life journey? Do you see how one thing leads you to another, does it help you to face the future and the present? Looking back and reflecting upon the journey is something I tend to do. It gives me perspective on the current events when I look back to see how we got here. I always try to see the positive side of things when I reflect and I seldom have regrets about things. I tend to look back and reflect after the accomplishments in life, it comforts me and gives me the strength to face what is in the future. N got the official "we want to fly you out here for an interview" communication yesterday after applying to a number of different places. He has...

The job search begins!

The resume tape is just a bout done, there are about 4 months left on his contract and the job search is under way! Job searching can be a tedious and stressful time for anyone. You sift through the possibilities, talk yourself out of the ones you feel are unachievable and then you pursue the ones you feel best suited for. Eventually you end up with another less than fulfilling job somewhere else but is it the job for you? The worst thing you can do is sell yourself short when job searching. This is something N and I learned first hand a few years back. It's natural to not want to feel rejected so your tendency is to not be willing to put yourself out there when you aren't sure you...

We all end up where we are meant to be eventually.

I just read a great blog post about U-turns and life. The author articulately compared life is with getting lost while driving. Oh, Dang! I just closed the tab for the blog I was wanting to link to. The blogger just left me a comment so now I have the url again, yay! Follow the link and read the post for yourself! Eventually we all end up where we are meant to be, the route and surroundings may not be preferable at the time but it gets us to where we are supposed to be sooner or later. This is perfectly obvious in my life right now. Today marks the day when my partner reached a goal that he set out for over 5 years ago. Today marks his first day...

Happiness is…

Everywhere you turn someone is talking about how to achieve what you want or how to be happy. Books like The Secret and Social Intelligence: The New Science of Human Relationships all talk about how those things you choose to surround yourself with can have a major impact on your happiness and success and they are right. Do you feel like you are happy with your life? How is your mood and outlook on a day to day basis? Do you think you have room to improve? The people you surround yourself with can have a major impact on your mood and you also impact their mood whether you believe it or not. Have you ever found yourself feeling drained, stressed or down after talking with someone who was not in the...

Staying positive and motivated in life

I just read a blog post over at http://ProBlogs.com about staying positive. I believe that your outlook on a situation can and will influence the outcome of the situation. I see it everyday as a teacher. If you expect people to fail they usually do but if you have hope in them and if you believe they are capable of greater things they will also begin to buy into this belief. Once I heard a motivational speaker say that if you act how you want to be you will eventually be how you how you are trying to act. We are truly capable of anything we believe. Along the way hard work is necessary but if you are committed and you really want it you will make it happen. The power of...

Think outside the box!!

Unhappiness is a sign that something is out of whack, it is usually something you have control over but tendencies will lead you to blame others. This weekend personal discoveries took place at my house. What about you? Have you ever been upset about something that you thought you could not control? Have you felt that you did not have the power to make things turn out differently? Everyone has heard the phrase “you are either part of the problem or part of the solution”.. Which role do you play and how? Thinking outside the box has helped me to see issues from different angles, it has also allowed me to grow on a personal and professional level. In what ways have you moved beyond the box? ...

Learning to attract what you want….

“The THOUGHTS we choose to think are the tools we use to paint the canvas of our lives.” - Louise Hay So much of life is a self fulfilling prophecy. We can very easily become products of our environment if we allow it. This is a very difficult concept for people to understand and it is even harder for those that have had trauma in their lives. It is so easy to believe that bad things are bound to happen to you especially when that is all you have experienced up to this point. but think about it, you were expecting bad things to happen right? Then they did and you proved yourself right which in turn solidified your belief in the notion that bad things are bound to happen to you...

"You must be the change you wish to see in the world."

I took a moment to reflect upon that statement, it truly is an empowering and insightful statement! What displeases you about our society, world, town etc? How are you acting and reacting differentially to improve the situation around you? Essentially we must reflect our visions in order to make them a reality. That means leading by example, actions speak louder than words and all that good stuff. If we truly desire positive change we must be the pioneers. Today I find myself surrounded with chaos and turmoil. Not in my own personal life but in the lives of my coworkers and friends. All the conflict and drama seems to be resulting from the lack of consideration for other view points and experiences. People tend to only see things from their own perspective,...

Destiny and the journey of life- everything happens for a reason.

Control is an illusion that we all struggle with. Do you believe you have control over your life? What does it mean to control your life? Can you control death and various other life changing events? Can you control the direction your life is headed? Your answers to these questions make you the person you are. When life-changing events take place many of us begin to analyze our lives and the steps we have taken to get to where we are. People ask "why me?" or "what could I have done differentially?". When we loose someone close to us we wonder why and we often do not understand the loss. Some will become angry or resentful others will learn and grow from the experience. I strongly believe that we are presented with...
