Success

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” Albert Einstein
Imagination creates endless possibilities… Imagination + creativity +intuition + knowledge = success.
Taking Action
“Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.” Will Rogers
Yes, I agree. Movement is instrumental to progress and being “run over”.
Perseverance- Or?
“It’s always too early to quit.” Norman Vincent Peale
OK- I think we all agree that before “quitting”, explore all options. And, to be aware of “the tipping point”. Sometimes, it’s indicated “to quit”. Before quitting, if it’s a project or action you are passionate about, brainstorm with a coach!
Choice
“Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.” Dr. Wayne Dyer
Yes, discernment comes with maturity and experience. Meditate before choosing…

Centering

An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day. -Henry David Thoreau

Oh yes… and when your energy is down, or the weather isn’t cooperating, a quiet time and stretch-breathwork is a great way to start the day!

Love
“Bearing and nurturing,
Creating but not owning,
Giving without demanding,
Controlling without authority,
This is love.”
Tao Te Ching, Chapter 10
This is love of a person, family and a formula for successful relationship and team building within any context.
Love never claims, it ever gives; love never suffers, never resents; never revenges itself. Where there is love there is life; hatred leads to destruction.”
Mahatma Ghandi
We strive to be/do this.

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
Rumi
…and love will come. Be open and accepting; it will find you.

You yourself, as much as anybody in the universe, deserve your love and affection.” The Buddha
Self love must come first and more will follow.

There are really five ways you can be happier- there is an  abundance of research on happiness and positive psychology documents this.

Happy people generally are more forgiving, helpful, and charitable, having better self-control, and are more tolerant of frustration than unhappy people.

 A 30 percent increase in one spouse’s happiness boosts the other spouse’s happiness, while a drop in one spouse’s happiness drags the other down.

 Strengths Linked to Happiness

Certain strengths are most closely linked to happiness. They include gratitude, hope, vitality, curiosity, and love. These strengths are so important that they’re worth cultivating and applying in your daily life, even if they don’t come naturally to you.  Research suggests that  these qualities can help you weather the routine ups and downs of life and also build resilience for times of greater difficulty.

 Reap the benefits of your strengths,

 First self awareness is needed to know what they are! Unfortunately, according to a British study, only about one-third of people have a useful understanding of their strengths. If something comes easily, you may take it for granted and not identify it as a strength. If you are not sure of your strengths, you can identify them by asking someone you respect who knows you well, by noticing what people compliment you on, and by thinking about what comes most easily to you.  An additional route to gratitude and boosting happiness is placing your attention on pleasure as it occurs, consciously enjoying the experience as it unfolds.  Multitasking can be the antithesis of this.

Appreciating the treasures in life, big and small, helps build happiness.

 Yeats:  “We are happy when we are growing.”

 Did you know that the brain is stimulated by surprise?

 Samuel Jackson: “The business of the wise man is to be happy”.

 Research shows that acting in an outgoing, talkative, adventurous or assertive way makes people- even introverts-feel happier.

 Making and sticking to a decision is a source of happiness because it gives you a sense of control, of efficacy, of responsibility.

 At time of financial stress, taking control of your finances- even symbolically- can boost your mood because you’re taking steps to control and improve your situation.

 Gratitude is important to happiness.  Studies show that consistently grateful people are happier and more satisfied with their lives; they even feel more physically healthy and spend more time exercising.

 Gratitude fosters forbearance- it’s harder to feel disappointed with someone when you are feeling grateful toward him or her.

 Gratitude connects you to the natural world, because one of the easiest things to feel grateful for is the beauty of nature. 

 Studies show that happier people are more likely to help other people.

Happier people are more interested in social problems.  They do more volunteer work and contribute more to charity.

 One of the best ways to make yourself happy is to make other people happy.

One of the best ways to make other people happy is to be happy yourself!

 Publius Syrus: “No man is happy who does not think himself so”

Saint Therese:  I take care to appear happy and especially to be so.”

 A small child typically laughs more than four hundred times a day, and an adult- seventeen times. 

Laughter can boost immunity and lower blood pressure and cortisol levels and increases people’s tolerance for pain. 

 Often a laughter response to someone’s  exasperation turns the situation around.  A story from Saint Therese:  p.264 The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin

 Tolstoy: ” Nothing, can make our life, or the lives of other people, more beautiful than perpetual kindness.”

– Amsterdam 2012 –

Happiness is subjective, perception rules.  Yet there are some simple keys to wellness and happiness, which go hand in hand.  The thing about happiness is that the premise often flows and changes, depending on people and circumstances in our lives.  It’s important through all the changes to be aware of your core values and be in alignment with them.

 These simple truths are not always evident and hold the keys  to wellness and happiness:

  • Follow your passions; do things that bring a sense of fulfillment, joy and purpose, that validate your worth.  See your life as your own creation and strive to make it a positive one.
  • Pay close and loving attention to yourself –  tune into your needs on all levels.  Nourish, support and encourage yourself.
  • Release resentment, envy, fear, sadness, anger.  Express your feelings appropriately.
  • Visualize positive images and goals.  Whenever negative or fearful images emerge, re-focus on images that evoke feelings of peace and joy.
  • Create loving, honest relationships that allow for the expression and fulfillment of needs for intimacy and security. 
  • Heal wounds from past relationships and with parents.
  • Make positive contributions to your community through work or service that you enjoy
  • Make a commitment to health and well being.  Develop a belief in the possibility of total health – physically and emotionally.

“..The Whale… If you read a recent front page story of the San Francisco Chronicle,
you would have read about a female humpback whale who had become entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines. She was weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle to stay afloat.
She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, her tail, her torso, a line tugging in her mouth.

A fisherman spotted her just east of the  Farallon Islands  (outside the Golden Gate ) and radioed an environmental group for help. Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so bad off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her.

They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed her. When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous circles. She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, and nudged them, pushed them gently around as she was thanking them. Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives. The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth said her eyes were following him the whole time, and he will never be the same.

May you, and all those you love, be so blessed and fortunate to be surrounded by people who will help you get untangled from the things that are binding you.

And, may you always know the joy of giving and receiving gratitude.”

We create abundance by allowing it in, by letting go of resistance that manifests in the form of fear, anger and shutting down.    Each area of life must be consciously “opened” : relationships, career, financial, spiritual, health, recreational.  We can begin to do this by meditating with the mantras:

  • “let abundance into the area of…
  • allow $$ to flow freely into my life..
  • allow love into my life and allow me to send it out”.

This process is similar to  prayer, with more personal involvement. We must be very aware and alert to change to notice when the circumstances / conditions are right for abundance:  then it’s up to you to take action!! We must move towards success, it doesn’t “come” to us.

EFT is an additional avenue/tool to opening the gates of allowing. You may read more about EFT here

An example of an effective set-up phrase with the EFT “choice method”:

“Even though I am struggling with financial issues, I choose to allow abundance to come into my life.”

After  tapping  the points for 3 sets you will notice your perception of allowing abundance skyrocket!  Since I’ve been meditating and “tapping” with the art of allowing abundance,  I’ve seen amazing results as have my clients and groups.

Following these two modalities it is positive reinforcement to visualize your abundance as you want it happening in each area. Everyday go through these sequences. Of course, as previously mentioned, you must take action. If you find yourself procrastinating, then it is a sign that there is a fear around the action- since all procrastination is based on one or more of these fears:  of judgment, of failure, of success , of being controlled.  The same techniques may be successfully applied to getting into gear and transforming procrastination into positive, powerful action if you really want to do something.

If you would like to explore these and related areas with me as your guide and coach,  I offer thirty minutes complimentary telephone consult.
