How Far Is Too Far?

We will only how far we are willing to go when we’ve gone too far. Most of our greatest accomplishments have arrived when we’ve extended ourselves beyond the self-imposed boundaries of the proverbial Box.
These limitations we place on our abilities are often borne out of Fear, Doubt and Insecurities that we have determined to be greater than the strength we possess to overcome such obstacles.
Listen to anyone that has shown superior character when faced with defeat or impossibility, yet still triumphed. They each tell a simple story of not letting conversations about circumstances, considerations or challenges rule their thoughts, whatever they may be.
Will things like limiting beliefs or lacking of confidence come up? Absolutely, yet it’s all in how we Respond and act in spite of such talk that makes the biggest difference.
A great question to ask is: “What’s in the Box that isn’t serving me?” The goal is to recognize when we stop, quit or give up, abandoning such smallness for greater results.  How far are you willing to go?

The Mystery of Life Revealed

The Mystery of Life is that there is no Mystery to it. Plainly, there is simply what is and what isn’t. There is what we know we know and what we know we don’t know. Beyond that, there is a whole lot of what we don’t know that we don’t know; that’s where learning and growth occurs.

We can call the unknown Mysterious, maybe even in some romantic or curious way. Should we choose to remain perplexed by anything, it will still be our simple Choice to remain there. We can also choose to investigate and inquire so as to further our knowledge.
This idea applies greatly to who we are as individuals and/or connected beings to the rest of our world. Until we decide to take a deep look into what is possible for who we can truly Be, we will be left with things just happening to us, thus becoming victimized or incidentally part of our own lives.
In taking stock of ourselves in an inquisitive, honest way, we will now have an opportunity to have a life filled with joy, wonder and magnificence for all that is.
The alternative is that people, place and things, conditions and circumstances, have control over our lives and we are left with powerlessness and defeat.
What’s most scary is that whatever outcome we get in our lives, it has been chosen by us and we have no one to blame, but ourselves.
Being responsible for our own results is the quickest way to remove the Mystery.

I Win, You Lose

What’s the deal? Let’s be real for a moment and ask when and where we are playing this game in our lives. Who is paying the price? How has it come to this? Our entire society is structured around winners and losers and in all actuality everyone can be a winner when we let go of the need to be victorious over others.
The real battle to overcome is within. When we encounter someone who has declared victory over their inner struggles, we stand in awe and shower them with praise, adulation and respect. The strength, courage and determination displayed by these people identify possibilities for us and our children.
It’s all good and well to play games and have activities where this experience can be had in fun and contextually with a high degree of sportsmanship. Yet, how can it be that life and the lives of others has become sport? We rack up trophies over those we’ve defeated with no regard for the impact on their lives or the lives of those that surround them.
The worst part of it all is that the outcome eventually turns to lose-lose. Is that how we really want it to be? Let’s ask ourselves how we can play win-win today and everyday thus making this practice a way of life and teaching others the depth of possibility in our world.

What’s In A Word?

The Value we place on our Word tells the world a lot about us. If we think Integrity is important, then how we maintain it with others, or not, will make all the difference if Trust has any chance to be developed.
We’ve all experienced that moment when someone breaks their Word with us.  How did that feel? We cannot feign ignorance and act as if we’ve never had that emotional reaction when another in essence lies to us.
Ever been called a liar?  Maybe not face-to-face, yet even if the other person didn’t utter the name, that’s what they felt; it can be counted on. Not being in Integrity with our Word is so damaging that some of us eventually become unaffected by it and we blindly pretend to not know the impact.
Of course, there will always be the litany of Reasons and Excuses. This is precisely what keeps the lies, deceit and nonsense alive. When we actively practice this behavior, people around us tend to not Trust, not count on us for anything! And, when they do, hearts will be broken yet once again.
The funny part is that when we act this way, we think that others don’t notice; they do. For those that play the: “That’s just how I am,” card, be aware that Words such as Respect, Honor and Trust are only used when describing what’s not there.  Worse, to be conscious about such behavior and still do it is blatant, selfish and just plain wrong.
Lastly, this whole message has been about Being on Time, in case you haven’t already figured that out. Been giving any other Words that are really lies out there?

Under A Spell

The beautiful magnificence of life surrounds us in so many ways yet we are often completely absent to how blessed we truly are. What would it be like to be Under A Spell of wonder and curiosity for what is possible? Versus the Choice of being in constant stress and worry?
The simple solution is to Surrender. To what do we Surrender? To attain true, authentic Freedom, we must learn to allow our Choices to simply Be. To become fully in alignment with what is, we get to be conscious of when we Submit to the Fear, Doubt and Insecurity that’s killing us.

Believe to Receive

Ask any successful individual and they’ll quickly tell you that Belief is a critical element to creating results. To generate or manifest what we want, we must have the opening to Receive what we want. This opening must be wide enough to take in what we desire. If we close our opening, we end up with whatever we get and that usually isn’t what we’ve designed.
A process I’ve developed, called Open Up Your Cup, has us putting the base of our hands (where the palm meets the wrist) on our temples. Now we can see what the size of our Cup could be. With fingers straight up, that Cup could equal the size of our ego. We could expand our fingers to widen the Cup or close our fingers, making a little bit of a dunce cap, which would limit what comes in.
Next, what we want to do is take our hands away from our temple, moving them straight up and out. That can now be the size of the Cup. When we commit this idea to memory, we have the opportunity to remember that our Cup can be wide open and we can effectively receive all that we ask for.
So…Open Up Your Cup!

I Get No Respect

This quote, made famous by Rodney Dangerfield, can sometimes be the exact experience we are having.  The truth is that Respect is not earned, it is given and we won’t get any unless we give it.  Sadly, we can give it to folks that don’t know how to give it back.  In that case, it wouldn’t be about us as much as it is about the person choosing dis-Respect.
If someone in our vicinity is going about their life dis-Respecting all the people, places and things around them, we tend to appreciate that perspective as one we don’t care for or want to have.  This is not about judging other’s behavior as much as it is simply recognizing what is and what isn’t working.
For us to have any chance at garnering that golden trophy of Respect from others, personally or professionally, we must start with giving it to ourselves first, then to others.  And, as giving goes, have no expectations about the return.
Additionally, if we go about getting Respect by our actions or deeds, it might be a good idea to look at our motivation.  It can be asserted that wanting Respect is ordinary yet needing it is likely about our fear, doubt or insecurity and speaks to what our ego desires as opposed to a natural, organic expression of our Being.
Like many areas of our life, we can simply let go of need, access our true, authentic power and have what we want manifest gloriously.  That is when respect from others will come.  So, let’s check our motivations and act accordingly. We might be pleasantly surprised at how people respond.

Fear of the Unknown

What is it about Change that we’re so afraid of?  Likely, it has to do with going to an unfamiliar place and not being clear about the outcome.  Our thoughts race and we become centered on self. What will they think?  How am I supposed to act?  What should I say?  These questions flood when we are in fear of the unknown.

Maybe if we shifted the thought from Change to Create, we might have the opportunity to be present and actually enjoy the process.

We often discover many great and wonderful things when we let go and simply participate.

Don’t Give a Bleep!

To say that attitude is everything is an understatement.  We can benefit by not letting the judgments and interpretations of others affect us.  Contrarily, we can further our smallness by not paying attention to what people observe about us and ignore their feedback regardless of its delivery.  When the message comes, it may be useful.
The critical element is to care enough about the information to consider it as beneficial.  Then, after review, we can look to implement a plan, strategy or alternative behavior to improve our situation.  Not a bad idea if we intend to make great things happen.  By not caring, we can lose sight of opportunity.
It is important that we be ourselves.  This authenticity is what others find attractive.  That courage to stand our ground and not be waylaid by the opinions of others is what we yearn for.  Funny thing is that when we let our ego be part of the equation, all bets are off. The reason for this is that the mechanism that the ego uses for its survival is determined to maintain scarcity of resources, disease and disconnection from those we love.
So what options are we left with?  How about an earnest practice of selflessness that puts others first?  If the case be that we must take care of ourselves before being able to care for others, it may be wise to inquire as to where we can give back to ourselves in a meaningful and beneficial way.  Examples might be as simple as maintaining a diet plan, exercise routine or ensuring that our surroundings are clean and organized.
Whatever the action, be aware that it is preceded by mindset and unless that process starts with true, authentic care for ourselves and others, we can virtually count on failure, challenge or struggle and likely will not have an outcome that we desire.
Basically, if we don’t give a bleep, we can expect great amounts of that same bleep to show up, because that’s what we will be sure to get!
