Being Clear

It is vitally important to be clear about what we want in life in order to achieve it.  It is also somewhat of a challenge to truly be clear about what we want in life.  Many of us believe that we are clear about our wants/goals.  I was one of those people.  It took me…

Getting in the Flow

There’s a lot of discussion about what makes life work best.  Is there a secret or magic?  What about the Law of Attraction?  Is it secular beliefs or spiritual beliefs? Is it being fully present in the moment or exploring the possibilities of the future? The options are, literally, limitless.  After many years of reading,…

Coincidence?

How many times do we hear people, including ourselves, say something is “just a coincidence”?  I hear it quite often.  I used to say it quite often.  Now I almost never use the word coincidence unless I am discussing someone else’s idea that something is coincidental. I used to be surprised when things would happen. …

Believing

What do you believe in?  Personally, professionally, spiritually, we all have things that we believe in life.  We have things that we believe are “supposed” to happen and we have lots of scenarios that we believe to be accurate.  Then, life steps in and our beliefs are shaken to the core and we are left…

Business is Business

Today’s post is both informational and a bit of a rant, so please bear with me.  I have had clients many times not understand why a service isn’t covered or why insurance companies sometimes don’t seem too concerned with the people they serve.  After all, look at the advertising on television.  Agents and adjusters who…

Who’s Responsible For How I Feel?

It has recently come to my attention that people forget who is in charge of their feelings.  In the past few weeks, I have been very busy and it has been awesome, but I keep hearing a message that bothers me, “so and so makes me feel…..” and the people saying it truly believe it…

Be a Fan, Not a Fanatic

As we get into the big games in football, baseball season is approaching, and hockey and basketball are in full swing, I think it is important to recognize the difference between being a Fan and being a Fanatic. I know that some of you may be thinking “fan is short for fanatic” and there is…

Changing the Inner Tapes

We all have things running through our brains that we are well aware of and we call these things thoughts!  But we also have many thoughts running through our brains that are out of our conscious awareness and we are affected by them, but we may not be very aware of them and therefore, we…

It’s What You Believe That Matters

Don’t the image fool you, this is about more than sports alone, but since sports is a big influence in many people’s lives, the football playoffs have started and the Olympics are coming, I chose this particular image.  Whether it’s sports, your career or life in general, what we believe to be true is a…

Judgement: Good or Bad?

We’ve been hearing and talking a great deal about judgement as we have entered the new year.  Someone very dear to me recently commented that they didn’t believe that it was possible not to judge.  That inspired this post, to be honest, because it really got me thinking about this topic of judgement. One dictionary…

2018, The Best Year Yet

It’s that time of year when we review the past and look forward to the future.  I know it’s been said so much that we don’t really pay attention, but today truly is the first day of the rest of your life (and mine too!).  Yesterday, last week, last year, whatever, is long gone and…

Happy Holidays!

Things have been very busy the last couple of weeks!  I want to take this time to wish everyone a happy holiday season, whatever holiday you celebrate!  This is the time of year for reflection and hope.  Reflecting on the year that is about to end and paying attention, not only to what we want…
