Completion

What does being complete look like? How about...not having any regrets...saying what you need to say...apologizing where an apology needs to be made...saying thank you and showing appreciation...and having your integrity in place... Being complete creates the peace of mind that gets rid of all Would-have, Should-have, and Could-have kinds of thoughts!

Being Thankful

Without question the last several months have been really rough on a lot of people… their families… their businesses. It is a tough time for many to think about being thankful, but it isn’t impossible! Think about it: Do you think it is possible to be thankful for what we have (and not worry about what we don’t have) by simply changing how we think? As we get ready to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, I think it is important for all of us to: Get out of our heads… Stop feeling sorry for ourselves (if that is where we are)… And get present to what we have to be thankful for!

Life never gives us a break – there will always be more “stuff” waiting. The key to not getting caught up in negativity, and instead being powerful in your own behalf, is to stay present to your power! My challenge to you as we enter the last weeks of this year is staying present to this power by living from the 80% of life that is great, having a plan that gets us from where we are to where we want to be and having a clear vision that allows us to see what’s next in terms of prospects for our future.

Whether “your guy” won or not, the success of our collective future and your individual future does not rest in who will be sworn in to office in January! Your success and the success of our nation rests on us – the citizens of this nation – to be active participants in creating and building an outrageous future! None of us can expect to get to where we want to go, if we fail to get into action in our own behalf… and if we fail to tell those who are in leadership positions what we want! So what do you want your future to look like? And are you willing to participate to make it happen?

Truth

The word “Truth” conjures up many thoughts about what truths one could be referring to. But the truth that I most want to address with this show is are you being true to yourself… and are you living a life that makes you happy? Asking these questions of yourself – and being truthful with the answers – could be difficult! None of us are comfortable having the “mirror” held up in front of us, but if we don’t willingly take a look at how we feel about the life we live, the person we are, and the difference we make on the planet… how do we know if we are being true to ourselves?
