The Reality of Finding Balance

The biggest issue people have when trying to schedule their upcoming week is they are attempting to bring this "Work-Life Balance" theory into the realm of reality. The thing is, this "Work-Life Balance" notion is a completely hypothetical theory - and not a fact-based practice. Believe it or not, motivational speakers can make a handsome living simply by inserting the words "work", "life", and "balance" into any seminar title. I receive phone calls regularly from people who want me to help them achieve this critical balance between their work and their lives. It seems that balance is something that most…

The Power of Confident Belief

Believe in yourself. To be successful in your personal and business life, you must display confidence for others to also believe in you. When you are uncertain about performing well, seek expert help to get you past your fear and uncertainty. Help may come in many forms including self-help, reading materials, taking a class and hiring a coach. Once you do take advantage of the expertise of others, you will possess the knowledge you sought and become more confident than ever before. For instance, early in my sales career, I would become a nervous wreck in anticipation of meeting with…

3 Practices to Light Your Life

The greatest gift that I have learned in this lifetime is to live my life by these three phrases: Love your ego, love your life and lead by example. Like many souls, I once believed that enlightenment was reached by ridding oneself of ego. In my early teens, I was so frustrated by the power my ego had over me that I broke down in uncontrollable tears. I asked the divine why I was struggling with detaching from my ego. Then, like a divine lightning bolt hitting me I realized, "trying to rid yourself of ego is your ego's work".…

This Is Your Special Day!

How you are greeting this fine day? Are you bringing to it high energy... fresh from pleasurable dreams and a good night's sleep? Or are you slumping tiredly from your bed...and slowly creeping your way into the physical world? Either way is fine, because here's what I know to be true: You will figure this day out... just like you've figured out all the days of your life so far. And, with a little guidance, you may even find perfection in whatever comes your way today. How do I know this? Because I have lived so many days... woken up…

Today’s Brilliance from Kris Cahill

Have you considered that following your heart is a gift to the rest of us? If you've been of the mindset that taking care of yourself first, and listening to your own true desires is selfish and unrealistic, here's some good news for you. Though it's not always the easiest thing to do, listening to what it is you want and following your own internal guidance system will help you to create a happy and fulfilled life. You will also never be bored if you are interesting to you. The way to be interesting to you is to find out…

Follow Your Internal Compass

There's a compass in your gut that points two directions: EXCITING and DRAINING. No matter what advice anyone gives you, you need to let this compass override your other decisions. Whatever excites you, go do it. Whatever drains you, stop doing it. You have to pay close attention to that compass, even in little day-to-day decisions. You get offered a gig - they're on the phone waiting for an answer - is it exciting you or draining you? To make a new website is going to take about 10 hours of work. Does that excite you or drain you? If…

Time To Clean Up

The body, brain, emotions, thoughts, and surroundings are the playground of energy in our lives. Our playground is often cluttered with non-essential toys and gadgets, words, beliefs, patterns, programs, attitudes, and is often overgrown with these weeds. Because of this, our energy playground needs to be cleared regularly, so that energy is flowing and abundant for the ultimate benefit of the human form. This playground of energy is usually only taken into consideration if or when something is breaking down or not working. By ignoring our energy until there is pain, loss, breakdown, etc., we are ignoring the fabric of…

Today’s Brilliance from Dr. Tomi Bryan

My life changed for the better when my oldest son Shep asked me, "Mom, what do you think the movie of the decade is?" An innocent enough question, one would think, for late December 2009. However, I kept hearing the word "decade." DECADE! It was screaming at me. All I could think was "We are at the end of another decade." The first decade of the new millennium gone! And what did I have to show for the last 10 years? As the new year started, I shouted these questions to all who listened: • "What is the reward for…

Why You Stop Working Towards Your Goals

Achieving a goal isn't about the goal; it's about the motivation to achieve the goal. Can you maintain motivation, or do you find yourself psyched about achieving a goal, with a good plan and a detailed picture in your mind, only to find yourself not working on the goal anymore? Maybe your work schedule is super busy, or your emotions are tightly wound because you're having trouble in a close relationship. There are seven Motivation Assassinators and they are the reasons we stop working on our goals. But they are easily identified and easily overcome. Do you know what yours…

Finding the Upside When Life Takes a Downside

What do you think of when you hear the word upside? Simply speaking, it is something positive that follows a downside. It is the promise or potential of a given situation. It's finding some clarity in the midst of chaos. Once the dust settles in your life, there is a little light or glimmer of hope that appears. But you have to be willing to reach out and grab the opportunity, nurture it and turn it into something meaningful. For example, I had a downside experience - a severe stress fracture in my leg, which laid me up for many…

Today’s Brilliance from Timothy Carroll

How wonderful it is to wake up to another fresh day - every day. It is easy to take this simple daily gift for granted isn't it? One of the most positive people I encountered was a lady named Elizabeth. When I last met her she had almost run out of days. She was actually lying on her deathbed on the day before she died. Elizabeth was resigned to her fate but beautifully at peace with the world in a helpful state of mind that could only be described as happiness. She had let the cares of her world fall…

Are You a ‘Grow’ Model?

We often hear the term "role model" used in today's society. Role models range in profession, from super athletes to hometown heroes to entertainers and authors. They inspire individuals to reach for their dreams and complete the extraordinary. Of course, the context of extraordinary varies for everyone and dreams can vary from running a half marathon to winning a Grammy award. However, for a person to be a role model, they don't need to know the individual they are impacting. Most people may never meet their role model. For example, mine happens to be Oprah Winfrey (if you're reading this,…

How to Make Sure Your Glass is Always Full

Money does not make you rich, character does. There are lots of wealthy people who are absolutely impoverished in character. You cannot buy a reputation for being a person of good character. It is earned by being a respectful, kind and responsible. You are truly wealthy when you accept the greatest legacy you will ever leave is choosing how well you live. Be genuinely grateful for what you have in life and tearing up the list of what you do not have will be gratifying. Attitude is everything. Have an attitude of lack, and life will be a never-ending search…

Surviving Life’s Storms

Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo! I used to sing this and dance to it when I was four years old. My father had given me the most wondrous magic wand made from cardboard and wrapped in aluminum foil. It sparkled like a star! I believed in magic – my wand and my paintbrush transported me to the Invisible World. I lived then, and still live now, with wonder and excitement. Life for me has been a magical journey. I have learned in my life that with every step we take, every thought we have, we are nourishing the shadows – or nourishing the Light.…

19 Lessons for Leaving a Notable Legacy

What I have learned in my life and career as a Registered Nurse Entrepreneur is that life is fragile and can change in an instant..... 1. Enjoy life, this is not a dress rehearsal. 2. Create your own positive events to nourish your mind. Even the strong require sustenance to survive, especially when they aid the weak. 3. Do not expect miracles, rely on them. We have all seen turnarounds from positive life steps and direction. 4. Things are not always what they appear to be on the surface. Investigate. Evaluate your perceptions. 5. Fight back against injustice to yourself…

The Power of Self

Self is inward. It is private. Self is your deepest dreams and greatest aspirations. It is your assets, vulnerabilities, body, mind and spirit. It’s your truth; what you want, who you are and who you want to be. I don’t think I ever thought about self as its own entity. I’ve thought about self-confidence, the times in my life when I’ve had it and times when I’ve needed it. I’ve thought about words like selfish and selfless, but never about self as separate. Then I began my journey of self-discovery. A difficult divorce forced me to acknowledge that while I…

Ways You can Choose to be Inspirational

You are not a result of your circumstances, you are a result of your choices. It is not the experiences you are presented with in life that define you, but instead how you deal with them. It is how you grow from them. It not the fact that you have faced difficulties in your life, but instead it is who you become while facing them. You are not a result of your circumstances, you are a result of your choices. In every moment you get the choice to be inspirational. Or not. In every moment you get the choice to…

People Matter – Including YOU!

People matter. Within the circle of your existence, you have been given a "tribe" consisting of your family, your friends, your irritating neighbor whose dog barks 24/7, and the co-worker who borrows your "Best Person Alive!" coffee cup and leaves saliva marks on the lip. Because of your unique relationship with each of these people, only you can reach them in the way you were designed to do so, and while yes, there are other neighbors who can smile stiffly at yours, there is no one who can take your place in the family setting, or within your friends' hearts.…

22 Steps Toward a Soulful Life

There are many things to learn. As we get older, we see how these lessons impact us, the lives of those around us, and the world we inhabit. Here are a few things I have learned in my life: 1. All forms of life are equal. This is not an optimistic hope or an idealistic dream, but the knowingness uncovered from experiencing consciousness beyond the individual mind. 2. The secret to a fulfilling life is to seek and live out your karma, aligning your personality with the inherent wisdom of the soul. Strange as it might seem – you already know.…
