My goal for February was to read the book "The Success Principles" by Jack Canfield AND do all the exercises in the book. In the introduction Jack recommends reading the entire book first and then go through it a second time and THEN do the exercises. Boy was

I'm not sure if men do this or not, but women, when confronted with a compliment, will jump through hoops to explain how it is they come to have such a beautiful sweater, or swear that it was nothing to get up at the crack of dawn to start preparing

I love to run. I was in track when I was a kid and I always enjoyed running, especially around my neighborhood at night. I've never had the urge to get crazy about it and undertake a marathon but nothing feels quite like it. About 10 years ago I had given it

I have often heard that the Universe rewards action. But, not necessarily in ways that make sense or that I can attribute a direct cause and effect relationship to. This month I'm reading a book about how to become successful. I've been doing the exercises

Tomorrow my mom is going into the hospital to have her second knee replacement surgery. The first one went so well last year and she got so much relief from all the pain she had been in, she decided to get the other knee done. It's always a bit scary when

Well, there are two big lessons that I'm taking away from my recent reading. 1. Visualization of one's goals is a key component of success. 2. Take action! I've heard about visualizing what I want in as much detail as possible, blah, blah, blah for years. The

Fear of failure or fear of success?

Posted on: February 2, 2011
Tags: 2011 goals

I had never really thought about the idea of the Fear of Success until a few years ago when I read about it. I always assumed people wanted success. Who doesn’t, right? Well, lots of folks want success but they are afraid of what else might come with

Well, I successfully (mostly) made it through January making a blog post every day. I missed one day due to some poor planning but I’m happy to say that it wasn’t any more than that! I have to say that I really like setting a goal that I commit to

Lately I’ve been feeling a bit anxious about things that feel out of my control. Now I know that literally there is nothing actually in my control except me. The more enlightened part of me knows that. It also knows that I am powerful beyond measure.

Recently I was at a Toastmasters meeting. We have a new location as of January 10, 2011. We are now located at a church that has a gymnasium next to our room. Last Monday there were a lot of shoe squeaking sounds coming into the room. I got up to close the

Where are you looking?

Tags: 2011 goals

I’ve noticed lately when I walk I tend to look down. Obviously I look up when I come to an intersection or often enough so that I don’t get lost (much) but for the most part, I’m looking down just a few steps ahead of where I am. Then today

Today I noticed that it was still light outside at 6:00 pm. I always get so excited this time of year when the days are getting a little longer all the time. I love the cold weather but I'm not so fond of all the darkness. As I begin to notice the increased

The magic of music

Tags: 2011 goals

I love music. I love listening to it, making it and dancing to it. My tastes run from one end of the spectrum to the other (except for non-melodic jazz). I can listen to Aerosmith on day and Josh Groban the next. I can always find music to either fit the mood

Expectation vs. Reality

I heard a saying once that went something like this: Blessed are those with no expectations for they are never disappointed. I’ve always liked that saying and try to keep it in mind whenever things go other than planned. (I will admit that I still have

Most of us have been exposed to the idea that we create our own reality, that the choices we make give us the life we are currently living. That applies whether we’re happy or unhappy. It’s a bit of a hard pill to swallow to know that each of us

This year I have decided not to make any resolutions for the new year but to look at what I want to differently in my life from a monthly perspective. Planning for the whole year is too much for my ADD-like brain to focus on and execute. So, this year
