Do Your Thoughts Lift You Up?

By |2017-09-15T12:27:02+00:00September 29th, 2014|MindShift Monday|Comments Off on Do Your Thoughts Lift You Up?

Thoughts are powerful. They have the ability to move us forward or stop us in our tracks. Your mind is like a computer. The messages that you put in affect your feelings and mood, and your feelings influence your actions. Henry Ford said it this way, "Whether you think you can, or you think you can't -- you're right." You become what you think. Your thoughts shape your reality. Here's a story I often share to illustrate the power of thoughts. I told myself, "I have to work hard for everything I get and nothing comes easy." The story came [...]

What’s Your Purpose?

By |2017-09-15T12:28:50+00:00September 22nd, 2014|MindShift Monday|Comments Off on What’s Your Purpose?

I read the book, The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho recently. I loved the story of the young shepherd, Santiago, who sets out on a journey to find and fulfill his Personal Legend. The book describes a Personal Legend as "what you have always wanted to accomplish." For me your Personal Legend is your purpose -- it's the difference you are meant to make. I believe everyone is born with one. No matter who you are or what country you live in, you have a purpose. Several years ago, I was leading a small group, and we were reading the book, [...]

What Are You Not Trusting and Why?

By |2017-09-15T12:31:13+00:00September 15th, 2014|MindShift Monday|Comments Off on What Are You Not Trusting and Why?

The biggest part of my personal transformation has been learning to trust myself. When I look at all the limiting beliefs that were holding me back, I discovered TRUST (specifically self-trust) was a major factor keeping me from making a bigger difference. When you don't trust, your journey will always be difficult, blocked, stuck, lonely, and slow. You will second guess your decisions and actions and just about everything and everyone around you. You will attempt to control every outcome in your life and if you can't control it you won't risk it. As a result, you sabotage your success [...]

Is Your Word Really Your Bond?

By |2017-09-15T12:39:18+00:00September 8th, 2014|MindShift Monday|Comments Off on Is Your Word Really Your Bond?

Integrity is the key to achieving your goals and dreams. It's about keeping your commitments, to others and to yourself, and doing what you say. Integrity is being aligned with your truth. When you honor your word, extraordinary things start to happen. If you are committed to making a difference, integrity is a must. Imagine pushing a shopping cart with a wobbly wheel through the grocery store. As you move along, you struggle to steer the cart in the direction you want to go because the wobbly wheel pulls in the opposite way. You have a few choices: You can [...]
