8 Success Tips for Living Happily

Here's what I believe to be the success of living happily... 1) Have a dream. It may be lofty or small - but it should be yours. And it must do two things. It should make you happy. And it should be of value to others. 2) Live your dream with passion. Passion is the energy that fires the spark of your desire, fans it into a glorious flame, and shows off your radiant brilliance. 3) Pursue your dream with determination. Believe with all your heart that it will come true, no matter how remote or difficult or impossible it…

Accepting Responsibility for Where You Are

The greatest power that you hold is the power of choice, because every choice you make dictates every result you get in your life - good or bad. And most importantly, every decision you make starts in your mind. All of us start out with this incredible power, yet so many give it away by refusing to step up and be accountable for their decisions. Sadly, most people choose to be a victim of circumstances and others, and never recognize that they are choosing that position. Look at some of the most successful people in the world, or even those…

3 Steps to Live Intentionally

There is absolutely no reason for anyone to live a dimmed existence marked by resignation, suffering, struggle, scarcity, strained relationships, ineffective communication, and diminished self esteem. When we can embrace life as a learning process that is full of exciting opportunities for us to learn, break though our stops and limitations, and experience new possibilities to become our best, we give up our right to be invalidated or disempowered. We know that the seeds of our growth lie in that difficult person, that challenging relationship, and that problem that keeps us from effortlessly skating though life. So, not only does…

20 Tips That Will Change Your Life

Here’s a list of 20 things that I have learned in life and would like to share with the rest of humanity: Spend money on experiences instead of things. Having fun in life is unarguably important in life, so pull pranks on people you love. But remember, every time you pull a prank on someone, you should expect one in return. Learn the difference between knowing when it’s appropriate to laugh at yourself and when it’s time to take yourself seriously. Don’t ever smoke cigarettes - kids don’t like the smell. Write a book. To start, create 3 folders (on…

Don’t Do, BE

We spend too much time doing and not enough Being. Our lives are structured around activity: work, raising children, hobbies, exercise or sports, studying, entertainment (concerts, restaurants, movies, video games, reading), traveling, having sex, and so on. The list of things we do is practically infinite. Even when we aren't doing much, we're mostly likely thinking about or planning things we want to do in the future. We spend very little time just Being. We don't even know what this means and why it's important, let alone how to do it. When we are Being rather than doing, we have…

Understanding Life After Death Frees You to Live Now

All of our lives here on Earth, we are learning lessons. In my life, I have learned from many teachers, both alive and dead. And I've always said that if everyone knew what I knew - how we go on in spirit form after we die our physical death, and how beautiful and perfect it is on the Other Side - they would not longer be afraid to die, or be afraid to live. Here on Earth, all of our words and actions are subject to the spiritual laws of cause and effect, also known as karma. Anything we say…

We Are All Connected

From my very earliest memories, I have had a love affair with Nature. I have stayed in touch with that love and know that there is a deep benefit that comes from an ongoing relationship with Nature. I tap into this love every day in my work as a poet, an artist, a writer, a therapist, mother of two sons, and a teacher of creativity. I am such an advocate of the importance of encouraging our children to have a relationship with nature because I attribute much of my strength and creativity to that connection. The best way to share…

The Importance of Being of Service to Others

"The greatest among you, shall be your servant." This has been one of the verses I have lived my life on and want to pass on to you. If you believe that you are created in God's image, and every other human is too, that will translate in every facet of your life. My son asks me, "Why do you do things for others?" I say to him, "Son, I am serving another of God's image bearers." I show him that service is an important part of life by exemplifying in my life. Our words can never speak more loudly…

6 Easy Steps to Reach Your Dream

When I personally set off to visualize a dream or a goal, I use the letters of my name, G.A.R.C.I.A. as a formula or guide to focus my vision in the area I am pursuing. You might try this with your name. Go for it. I visualize my goals. All I have to do is simply recall that as a young boy, I could barely speak English and my education was suffering, and that I worked under the blazing sun for 12-13 hours a day, as a laborer, for 40 cent an hour. I remember that I felt like I…

Tips for This Journey Called Life

Participate in life or it will pass you by. What does participate mean? It means to reach out and seek everything. Taste every flavor, smell each aroma, see every facet, hear every note and touch every texture. Life's a huge smorgasbord, with so much variety that it is impossible to taste everything. Life is also like a big washing machine, churning and mixing all its ingredients all the time. At the smorgasbord or in washing machine, we find people, opportunities, challenges and the failures. It is ultimately up to each of us to decide who or what to choose. We…

Forget Your Obsession With Shiny Objects

Ours is a world focused on "shiny stuff". An endless parade of shiny new things that will supposedly make us happier. Whether it's a new baby doll or toy car, we are taught from the earliest age to strive harder, to be better, so we can get more shiny stuff. Soon we learn that shiny stuff isn't what it's cracked up to be. The wrapping paper goes in the trashcan, and the shine begins to wear off. It's time to donate the old stuff to make room for the new stuff.... "Do you have something shiny?" we ask.... And so…

Staying On Target Despite Obstacles

If there is a light at the end of the tunnel, do you see it as a train getting ready to hit you, or do you see it as your ticket to a better life? If I were you, I would hop on that train. In almost every instance, it will take you to a better, happier place. If the road you are traveling is paved with a) detours, b) brick walls, c) closed doors, d) distractions, and e) personal issues, don't give up! Think of these things as speed bumps -- glitches or annoyances. Things happen for reasons you…

4 Guidelines for Finding Inspiration

Keep your eyes wide open for inspiration! Look for a beautiful sunset. Feast your eyes on the perfection of flowers - the perfection of their colors and of their conformation.

Take Your First Step

One of my favorite figures from history is President Theodore Roosevelt. He lived an amazing life. He accomplished so many big things - he built the Panama Canal, won a Nobel Peace Prize, started America's national parks system. But he received a great deal of criticism during his lifetime, exactly because he dared to do big things. After his presidency, he gave a speech in response to all of those who had been hollering and sniping at him through the years. In it, he said that "it is not the critic who counts. The credit belongs to the one who…

Stop Living in Fear

There are many ways to live in fear. When we hear the word fear, many conjure images of death, destruction, abuse, abandonment.... Of course, all of these situations would likely cause fear to arise in most of us. Fear's power, however, is not limited to such severe conditions. In fact, I believe that fear's greatest damage is done in the subtlest ways, oftentimes when no one's even paying attention. The little girl who sits on the bus so quietly, praying that she won't be noticed, and bullied. The mother and father who regard their little boy playing in the playground,…

Sometimes it's fast and exciting; at other times, it can be trying and painful. It is through the hard times that we grow and realize the people and causes that bring us the greatest fulfillment. It is during these times that we have an opportunity to see our life through a different lens, one that brings us closer to our true purpose and reveals different perspectives and priorities. I…
