I Flopped

May 8, 2019

Did you ever try something and just flop? I was asked to be one of the  speakers for a start-up TV internet show, which I’ve done before. I mean, this was not my first rodeo. I’ve spoken many times before, but this time, I just flopped. I could blame it on the stage, the distractions that were numerous or any number of other things, however the bottom line is a screwed up. I had my talk memorized, I practiced over and over and over again. I recorded myself, I read it out load so many times I can’t even count. I wrote it on index cards, nothing helped. And it wasn’t even like I got nervous, it was just this weird brain freeze that occurred. So, I just improvised. Everyone in the audience said it was great, but I know what my good is and it was far from that. But you know what? I was okay with flopping. I didn’t beat myself up over it.

In the past, I would have been so hard on myself, but now, I strike it up to experience. I get back up and go do it again. Sometimes we get knocked down. Sometimes we fail, sometimes we make mistakes and some times we don’t make the grade.

I ask myself what did I learn from this experience and how can I improve?

Nothing helpful will come from beating yourself up over a failure. It is all about failing forward. failure is part of success. If you haven’t failed most likely you won’t succeed. So the next time you flop, brushed yourself, congratulate yourself for even trying and onward and upward.

I’m So Frustrated

March 13, 2019

When you are learning something new, do you get totally frustrated if you aren’t picking it up as easily as you would like? Learning a new skill requires effort, focus, concentration, repetition, desire and a host of other things that keep you engaged. It can be frustrating!

It is part of the learning curve. I’m going through this right now. I am involved in 3 online courses that has got me screaming sometimes. I have so much work to do. I feel like I’m back in school. Well I am kinda. I love to learn. I love to dig deep into subjects of the mind. It’s my addiction. I am fascinated by how the brain works so I’m studying neuroscience. It ain’t easy. I just want to throw all the books up in the air sometimes.

 

Thank God I know this is a part of the learning process. I know I will get really good at understanding how the brain works when I keep learning, studying and applying this material to my every day life.

So how about you? What would you like to learn? Maybe you would like to learn a new language. You might suck at speaking it for awhile but with practice you will get better and better.

How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice, Practice, Practice…..


Your Power Within

October 6, 2015

your invisible powerWe all have a power within us when realized and activated can alter your reality. Your dreams and desires have been given to you to make manifest. A quote from Genevieve Behrend in her book, Your Invisible Power that was written in 1912 says; ” When your understanding grasps the power to visualize your heart’s desire and hold it with your will, it attracts to you all things requisite to the fulfillment of that picture by the harmonious vibrations of the law of attraction.” Let’s break this down so that you can understand it better. First, understanding comes from study. You must amerce yourself in studying the natural laws of the universe to become aware of the infinite potential in the quantum field. Then you imagine and visualize what it is that you would like to make real. Remember, every thing is created twice, once is your mind and then that energy transmutes into the physical. Your heart’s desire has to be felt through out your body in intense emotion ( energy in motion). In other words, your mind and body must become one and the image is so real in your mind’s eye that you are experiencing the image as already manifest. Keep your attention on that image and be thankful that it has already been created in one form. Now all you have to do is believe, take action toward your desire and it must come to you because you are radiating the frequency out, like a radio wave into the universe. Practice, and study. The power is within you.


Living in Faith

March 3, 2015

faithFaith is finding answers in the heart. Sometimes life can be very challenging, and we’re, not sure how to move forward. Faith, will always guide you when you just take that first step. Faith cannot be seen by the eyes, or heard by the ears, but rather, felt by the heart. It is a trusting that all is moving towards the good when you take that leap of faith. You must first feed your mind with encouraging words. Then translate these thoughts into feelings that will begin to be supported by faith to begin believing in yourself. Every step you take to empower yourself, you are stepping into faith. Your faith will get stronger and stronger as you continually trust in yourself.

Faith comes from within. Nothing in the physical world will give it to you. You must develop it from within your mind and spirit. Fear will always test your faith. Whatever beliefs you grew up with that are keeping you stuck in feelings of lack, limitation, or unworthiness, needs to be transmuted into a life of faith. Faith can be developed, by meditation, study, prayer, forgiveness, love, and practice. Every day you can either live in fear, which will hold you back, and keep you imprisoned or move forward with faith. Life becomes a glorious adventure of freedom when you trust in your higher power and live in faith. I choose faith and freedom. How about you?


Practice, practice, practice

practiceHow do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice, practice, practice. How do you get to be in the Olympics? Practice, practice, practice. How do you get great at anything? Practice, practice, practice. Practice does not make perfect, however it does make it permanent. You can become a master at your craft and it will appear perfect, which is all well and good, but the main thing is that it will become permanently engrained in your being. You will become one with your craft. Therefore, you will unlocked the key to discovering your truth and gift. By practicing over and over and over again, what you do will appear easy and flawless. You will be giving the world your highest form of express. As I watch the winter Olympics on television, I am in awe of the talent, abilities and sheer determination of these magnificent athletes.
They not only practice physically but rehearse there sport in their mind over and over and over again. What  do you what to master? All you have to do is practice, practice, practice!
