I’ve come to realize that my attitude will dictate every result I get in my life. I’m sure you heard this message too growing up. Things like; if you had better attitude, you could get better grades in school, or, with an attitude like that you can go to your room, right? The only thing is no one ever told us how to get a better attitude. What is attitude anyway? Well the dictionary describes it as;
1-A position of the body or manner of carrying oneself, indicative of mood or condition.
2-A state of mind or feeling about some matter.
3-A way of behaving; disposition.
In other words, my thoughts, feelings, and actions must all be aligned in a positive way, for me to be perceived and received as authentic. When this happens, I will radiate with confidence.
To do this, I have to be willing and able to honestly look at the results I am presently getting in my life. I know that at the center of my being is love, truth and a life that is connected to a higher intelligence. I also know I have gotten mixed messages about myself and the world as I was growing up. These negative messages have formed my behaviors and beliefs. Even though they didn’t feel good, I grew up not realizing how these limiting beliefs affected my attitude and everything in my life.
Now I know that I can change my perception about those beliefs. I choose to align with my higher self and develop an attitude of gratitude. Once I begin to make that shift, my whole world will reflect these results back to me, as a mirror reflects an image. Choosing to take responsibility for your attitude will improve the quality of your relationships which will bring unimaginable abundance into your life. Learn how you can tap into your truth and form a positive attitude.

“Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.”
― John Lennon
I love this quote! So many times people worry over things we have absolutely no control over. We get so caught up with the negative “what ifs”? What if everything turns out horrible? What if we lose? What if it doesn’t turn out the way I planned? I’m sure you can think of other what ifs. But what if things turn out great? What if you could view life as a glorious adventure?
This reminds me of a folk story that brings things into perspective.
There once was a farmer who lived with his wife and only son in the country. They owned one horse that helped them till the soil and plant their crops.
One day the horse just decided to run away. All the neighbors found out and said, “Oh I’m so sorry for you. Now you are going to have to work so much harder.” The farmer kept his cool and said, “we’ll see.”
After a week the horse came back with a Mare. All the neighbors said, “Oh you are so lucky, now you have two horses to help work your land.” The farmer just said, “we’ll see.”
Now, their only son wanted to tame the new horse, however he got thrown off of her and broke his leg. Again the neighbors said, “Oh you poor thing, your only son that helps with so much can’t help you work.” The farmer just said, “we’ll see.”
A war broke out in the country and all the young men had to go to battle. However the farmers son could not go because of his broken leg. The neighbors said “Oh, how lucky you are, your only son gets spared from having to go to war.” The farmer again said, “we’ll see.”
So you see, the story of life has its good times, it’s bad times. Life has its ups and downs. There are highs and lows as well. How we face those times makes all the difference. Life is like a rollercoaster. You can enjoy the thrill of the ride or feel like you just want to get off.
Joe Biden, the former Vice President has a new released book entitled, “Promise Me Dad”, a year of hope, hardship and purpose.
He exemplifies what it means to have courage and faith. You too can set your own sail and find your purpose by choosing how you respond to life’s circumstances.
Look for ways to be of service. Go the extra mile, and make it a point to lift someone else up by giving a compliment. It goes farther than you can imagine.

If we open a quarrel between past and present, we shall find that we have lost our future.
The one person that is standing in your way of living your best life is YOU!
I can remember my self-sabotaging behaviors when I was younger. Boy if I only knew then what I know now. I was getting in my own way of success but didn’t see it. It’s not easy to see your blind spots. Until I started working with a coach I was continually shooting myself in the foot and blaming someone or something else for my setbacks.
Taking responsibility for my thoughts, feelings and actions requires disciple. To take an honest look at what I’ve been doing or not doing also takes courage.
What I’ve learned was to stop over analyzing. I must get in the zone and just be and do. I had to visualize myself as the person I wanted to be and then act the part. The minute the monkey mind started coming in my head, I was cooked.
The results are sneaky but can start to show up causing dis-ease, bad relationships, lack of money, loss of a job or any other place.
It takes continued focus and practice to learn how to stop the monkey mind from taking over. That is why a coach is essential in helping you.
So, if you’re having a quarrel between your past and present, you too have lost your future. And without a future you’re not going anywhere.

People demand freedom of speech to make up for the freedom of thought.”
Thinking is the highest function we are capable of. It requires concentration, self discipline and creativity. Everything that we see in the material world came from someones thought power. So why do we have so much poverty, unhappiness and sickness? What are we actually thinking about anyway? Or are we thinking at all?
George Bernard Shaw said; “Two percent of the people think; three percent of the people think they think; and ninety-five percent of the population would rather die than think.” Thinking is hard work. Actually it is the hardest work you will ever do. Staying with a problem to find a solution requires effort. James Allen Said; ” Until thought is linked with purpose there is no intelligent accomplishment.” These three men were all great thinkers. Thinking is a gift from source energy. We have the freedom to choose any thought we want, yet we use our minds for small tasks rather than accomplishing great things in our life.
We all want things in our life. Those things require thought power. If you want a healthy body, you have to eat healthier foods, exercise, and use disciple to see yourself being that person with the lean body. If you want to have a higher position in your company, than you must learn what it takes to step into that role. Ask yourself some powerful questions. Who do you want to become? What do you really want from life?
You can have it if you take the time to think about it. Hiring a coach is one of the best ways to move the creative process along faster. Two minds are better than one.

“The most important physiological discovery of the century is the discovery of the self image.” Maxwell Maltz
Who really are you? What are your beliefs about yourself? We are the person we believe ourselves to be. Henry Ford said,” If you think you can’t do something you’re right, If you think you can, you’re right too.”
Maxwell Maltz was a renowned plastic surgeon back in the 1930’s and 1940’s. He saw that after removing scars and preforming other procedures on peoples faces to improve their appearance, they still didn’t feel any better about themselves. He found this remarkable and later went on to write a book Psycho-Cybernetics, were he introduced his idea that a person must have an accurate and positive view of themselves before setting goals; otherwise they will get stuck in a continuing pattern of limiting beliefs.
If ones self image is unhealthy or faulty, everything he or she does will end up in failure. A healthy self image is the key to your success.
The good news is you can change your self image through awareness, study, understanding and diligently applying the principles to become someone new. If you want a new personal reality, you need to create a new personality.
If you want more success, if you want to aspire higher, or if you just want to feel better about YOU, reach out. It will be a grand step in developing an outstanding self image.

“Nature yields her most profound secrets to the person who is determined to uncover them.” Napoleon Hill
I love older classic movies from the 1940-1950’s. I find the acting and stories so compelling. There were no special effects to entertain you, so the dialog had to be intriguing, intelligent and emotionally gripping. There was’t even any color to enhance the scenes so using shadows and playing with angles left much to your imagination.
One movie I watch last week was Bird Man of Alcatraz, a true story based on the life of Robert Franklin Stroud. He was incarcerated for 54 years of his life with 43 of those years in solitary confinement. In that time he became a respected ornithologist (bird expert) and educated himself in many subjects.
It made me think of what we are capable of when we join forces with this universal intelligence. We don’t have to go to solitary confinement to uncover our talents and gifts, but we do need to sacrifice something of a lower nature for a higher one.
When we go into the solitude of our minds, nature will begin to reveal her secrets to you too!
Are you ready for a revaluation?

Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.
Don Miquel Ruiz- The Four Agreements
This lesson was one of the most difficult for me and I believe most others as well to learn. The fear of criticism is one of the greatest fears. That is why people would rather die than speak on stage. I used to be petrified to speak in public. My voice would crackle and my body would shake from fear. However now I absolutely love it! By facing your fear, it will loss its hold on you. If people criticize you for doing something that isn’t to their liking, it’s their issues, not yours. They owe it, not you!
Be true to you and give no attention to the people how put you down. Give your best, be your best and let the rest fall away. Own your power!!!
