You Are The Decision Maker For Your Life

“Life is the sum of all your choices.”
— Albert Camus

youdecideYou know, we can have the most enlightened beliefs about life and how life works but they can remain pretty much theoretical until we have an opportunity to practice our beliefs. [YAY Contrast?]

For example, I have for many years been aware of the power of choice. I have reminded myself on a daily basis that I get to choose. I have frequently tried to convince clients that they too get to choose. Perhaps this blog post will remind you of the awesome power of choice you possess. [Read More. . .]

A Complaint-Free Week

“When you complain, you make yourself a victim. 
Leave the situation, change the situation, or accept it. 
All else is madness.”
– Eckhart Tolle

Complaining, griping, kvetching – we all do it, right?
Complaining can be a habit and, for most of us, it’s pretty easy to get others to commiserate with us.  It can even feel anti-social not to join in someone else’s bitch session.  But is complaining really a habit worth continuing?

Facebook Memories reminded me I had engaged in a complaint-free week in 2011.  It was an interesting and revealing week.  Here’s a recap:

Day #1.  For the next seven days, I’m committed to living a Complaint-Free life.  Zero tolerance for complaining or blaming.

[I got the idea from Will Bowen, the founder of an organization called A Complaint Free World.  I posted my commitment and invited Facebook friends to join in.]

Day #2.  It’s natural to notice things we don’t like. That’s the contrast that inspires desire. The contrast also sets up a crossroads. We can complain and attract more of what we don’t like OR we can make peace with what-is, focus on what we prefer and attract more of the good stuff.

[I get to choose how I respond and it matters very much what I choose.  As A Course in Miracles proclaims, “I could choose love instead!”  Or fun . . . or joy . . . or . . . ]

Day #3.  I notice my tendency to complain when I have to wait – at the chiropractor’s office, checking out at the grocery store, etc. I’m wondering – Is complaining a response to feeling powerless?

[It may feel like I’m taking my power back when I complain, but complaining actually lowers my vibration and exacerbates my feeling of powerlessness.]

Day #4.  The weather forecast calls for a high of 108 here in Austin. Rather than complaining about the heat, I intend to appreciate the air conditioning and imagine cool crisp fall weather coming.

[My neighbor was bemoaning the heat wave that day and I responded that I’d love to join in but I had committed to a complaint-free week.  We both laughed.]

Day #5.  I bet if we REALLY got it that we create our own reality, instead of complaining about a reality we don’t like, we’d get busy creating a reality we prefer.

[Complaining only brings us more to complain about.]

“Instead of cursing the darkness, light a candle.”
– Benjamin Franklin

Day #6. If I say it’s too damn hot or this traffic sucks or why did she cut my hair so short, I’m complaining. If I say it’s really hot, there’s a lot of traffic today, she sure cut my hair short this time, I’m noticing. One is a complaint and one is an observation.  And the vibrational difference is huge.

[This was a fun realization.  I can notice what-is without complaining about it.]

Day #7.  Calls to customer service departments have often been less than a cakewalk for me so I set a strong intention before calling AT&T today.  It worked!  I sailed through the entire call without complaint and proved that – with the right attitude – I can enjoy every moment of this physical life experience.

[How empowering to know that it’s possible to enjoy any situation.  Well, if not enjoy, at least accept.]

Revisiting my Complaint-Free Week reminded me:

gold starhow much easier it is to maintain a high vibration when I refuse to give in to blaming and complaining.
gold starI can always choose a better feeling response.
gold starinstead of complaining about a reality I don’t like, I can focus on the reality I prefer and, thus, create a better feeling experience.

Today I’m beginning another complaint-free week.  I’m super determined to find something positive about every situation.  Why?  Because it feels better to light a candle than to curse the darkness!

Will you join me?

How To Make The Law of Attraction Work For You

Mastering the Law of AttractionOne of my stellar clients [they’re all stellar!] wrote on his Session Prep Form that he had received yet another promotion at work and his co-workers were teasing him about “building an empire.”

He also said co-workers have been asking him how he does it, i.e., how he continues to receive promotions and expand his team and excel at a pace that is unfamiliar for most. Plus, he’s only 31 years old and most of his direct reports are significantly older. [Read More. . .]

Having Fun Along The Way

“Life is a journey – not a destination.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

This journey is yours enjoy each and every stepHow many times have you heard the advice to enjoy the journey? I don’t know about you, but this guidance was not always so easy for me to follow. Even though enjoying the journey from where I was to where I wanted to be made perfect sense to me; for most of my life, I was way too goal-oriented to do more than merely acknowledge it as a good idea.

Over the years, though, as I’ve released my programmed tendencies to work too hard and push too hard and try to force square pegs into round holes, I’ve gotten better at enjoying the journey. [Read More. . .]

What’s Perfect About This?

heart with All is Well written insideI can tell you it didn’t immediately feel wonderful when my internet went down. Again! After I’d already had three service techs come out in one week [including one appointment that lasted more than 3 hours], each one assuring me I would have no more issues. It didn’t immediately feel wonderful. In fact, my stomach was in knots and I felt awful.

But the thing is I can’t stand to feel awful anymore. Its just not OK anymore.

So I did what I coach my clients to do – Step back and ask: “What’s perfect about this?”

Determined to feel better, I breathed, chanted and sincerely asked “What IS perfect about this situation I do not like?” In addition to sweet relief, I got these answers: [Read More. . .]
