Happy Holidays

What the world needs now is more kindness, compassion and peace.

Wishing everyone a most joyous, peaceful and loving Holiday.

 

Prayer of St Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.

Amen.


Hoo Hoo Hoo Tis the Season!

“When the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught, the last river poisoned, only then will we realize that one cannot eat money.”

Hoo Hoo Hoo, Tis the season! As I watch television it seems like every commercial is about shopping and buying. Sales, specials and bargains are every where!  Every year the commercialism seems to get more and more frenzied. What is it that we yearn for? Is it really more stuff? I mean, I like nice things but the older I get the less stuff I really want. I really love connecting with people. I love sharing ideas. I love good stories. How much money do we need to feel secure? We can’t eat money  If we took the time to educate, empower,reward and train people we would have a stronger and healthier economy. Our economy would be healthier if we invested in educating the people. Our planet is not doing well. She is melting, burning, choking and suffocating. This is our home. Our earth and our heart. They are one and the same.

As we get closer to the holidays, why not forfeit gift giving with relationship building. Invest in giving away things, invest in healthy conversations, and invest in supporting a cause. Things that will last and pays dividends over and over. Let’s return to our hearts to heal the earth.

 

 


I Promise!

December 4, 2019

“Most People fail, not because of their lack of desire but of their lack of commitment.”

Vince Lombardi

Can you believe it’s December of 2019? Where has the time gone? As we complete yet another year on the calendar, what have you done this past year that makes you feel good that you committed to? Have you kept your commitment and promise to yourself on accomplishing your desires, goals and aspirations?

If you haven’t, what do you think is holding you back? What is it that gets you so pumped up and excited about starting something and then that drive slowly vanishes? I know for myself, that when I’ve planned on eating healthier, getting in better shape or developing my business goals, and I overdo it, I slowly start to make excuses to myself why today isn’t a good day to continue. Then little by little, I’m right back where I started, and nothing improves. Now I know that to get lasting results, I first must make a commitment and a promise to myself that I am going to follow through on what I truly desire. Second, I do not overwhelm myself with an all or nothing mentality. I have learned the Kaizen Principle. Kai=Change

Zen=Good. It means to become good through change. This is a Japanese philosophy of continuous improvement. It is a series of small incremental and daily routines done over long periods of time that will result in dramatic and lasting improvements.  Wow, this has made such remarkable improvements in every aspect of my life! This was something I could commit too. With small incremental improvements, it’s like compounded interest. You get better and better at something over time. What do you want to change and commit to in the New Year? What ever it is you want to improve and change, you can make it happen. If you commit to taking little steps every day, where you will be at the end of 2020 will amaze yourself!

It’s always best to have an accountability partner to support you and keep you on track, so reach out and hire a professional coach that will encourage you on the days you want to quit.  2020 is the year of clear vision. Get started now. Change for the good is possible.
