The Fountain Of Youth Is Faith

November 16, 2017

             You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt: As young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear.                                                                                                                                                                                        Samuel Ullman

This was the message from the crypto- quote I like to do every morning. This really hit home with me. When I doubt myself I question my ability to continue reaching for my goal. When I have a big goal it can be challenging. If I allow the doubt to take over it feels so heavy, which can make me feel older than I am.  With doubt my desire can weaken and it pulls me down. But when I am taking positive action and feeling good, faith creates a feeling of youth and vibrancy in my body and mind.

The same is true for when I feel confident. I feel young and ageless. I can go on for hours performing a task and stay focused on my purpose. But when fear creeps its ugly head into my day, I feel tired, and just want to give up and tune out.

That’s why it is so important to keep your purpose, vision and goals in your mind at all times. Surround yourself with positive people who will lift you up and help you stay in the mind frame of faith and self-confidence.

Everyone can feel defeated at times. Life can be tough.  With passion, faith, confidence and perseverance, you will have the energy, to get through those doubtful and fearful moments. Show up for yourself and be the best you can for today. Do what you can just for today and you will feel young and vibrant to follow through on your goals.

Are You A Genius?

August 17, 2017

 

IQ is the measure of someones intellect. EQ is the measure of someones emotional intelligence and CQ is the measure of someones ability to communicate intelligently. But what really makes a genius a genius? Albert Einstein was a genius. Stephen Hawkins is a genius.  Michelangelo and Leonardo deVinci were also geniuses in their own right. Marie Curie, Virginia Wolf and Ludwig van Beethoven were considered genius, and the list goes on…

According to Websters dictionary Genius is defined as:  exceptional intellectual or creative power or other natural ability.

Is it something in the brain that makes a genius? Is it intelligence, creativity, perseverance, or simply luck? Is it something from the divine?

Just because you are really smart and have a high IQ does not make you a genius. Through my studies and understanding, EQ and CQ are just as  important as IQ for getting the results you want in life. However that still will not make you a genius.

What if we can nurture someone to become a genius? Maybe the more we allow creativity, imagination and create a nurturing environment to become  part of a child’s life the more they can develop their brain to become geniuses? Through neuroscience we are getting closer to understanding what parts of the brain get activated when we use our creative skills.

I believe that you must have a strong purpose, have passion, perseverance and determination to unleash the genius inside of you! You also need support!!! Someone who believes in YOU!

If you need a coach, hire one, it will be the best investment you can make! Don’t be a smarty pants,thinking you know it all. Be a genius!!


Pay Now, Play Later

May 11, 2017

“I’ve never known a man worth his salt who in the long run, deep down in his heart, didn’t appreciate the grind and the discipline. I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour-this greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear-is the moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle-victorious.”  Vince Lombardi

You can either play now and pay later or pay now and get to play later. In other words, if you put in the work required to achieve a desired result now, the rewards are that you can relax after the work is done.

If you choose to play now, well your going to have to pay twice as hard and maybe never stop paying for the consequences.

This is a valuable lesson to learn. Which do you choose? Sacrificing something of a lower nature for something of a higher one takes disciple, commitment and perseverance.
