If something is not working in your life Change Your Approach

Today I went to to read some articles. I was having fun reading and making comments when I discovered this video that Tony Robbins had on the Home page.
Tony Robbins is a well know author and obviously a motivational speaker, whom I have followed and admired for years. I remember the movie, Shallow Hale when Tony Robins gives advice to Jack Black (Hal) and was able to change Jack’s perception of women. The art of suggestion is what I call it.
Well, on this video Tony talks about Sylvester Stallone and how basically he had nothing and broke. Sylvester is a personal friend of Tony Robbins by the way. The message was to “change your approach” if you do not get the results that you want. Even if you get a million and one No’s a day, keep going and change your approach until you do get the results that you do want.
What I learned is that Sylvester Stallone’s dog is in the movie and his name is Buttkiss I believe.
Not only did Sylvester write his movie “Rocky” and was the star in the movie there were many who did not believe in the script that he wrote for it, until one day he got a YES and he won an Oscar for it. This is a man who went from broke to “changing his approach to getting what he wanted.”

Do you forget your Passwords?

I don’t know about you but I forget my passwords all the time. I like this new thing that a lot of networks are using the Facebook button to login to different networks.


I wanted to say HAPPY MOTHERS DAY to everyone!  Here is one experience I have had on Mother’s Day to touch your heart. 

I went to my Catholic Church around 20 years ago.  It came to the part when the Priest told everyone to turn around and tell the person next to you to wish them a happy Mothers day.   It could be a grandma, mother or woman.  Well, that is all good and great unless you have NO MOM.  So, I was not a mother yet and My Mom died when I was younger.  I was 5 she was 33.  So imagine me standing alone in the pew as all the women were wished a Happy Mothers Day and no one to do it to me and I to them. 

My message to you is that even if you are not a mother or have a mom, you are important too! 


Make your life complete

Offer assistance

Take nothing in return

Have “intuition


Remembers you in special ways

Special in many ways

How to be Positive in Negative Economic Downturn?

As we all have experienced our economy has taken a downturn. It seems like there is no “quick” fix. Each day there is more bad economic news. All of these occurrences can make it easy to fall into a negativity.  Negative conversations are plentiful. But, let’s find out how to be positive in a negative atmosphere.

Things You’ll Need:

  1. Perseverance

1.       Stop murmuring and complaining.

complaining can be very draining and immobilizing. People get tired of listening to negative conversation. They will even try to avoid those who are chronic complainers. Reject those who cause your problems to look even more insurmountable. Fight back with positive and optimistic faith that the situation will change and good will come out of a bad situation.

2.      Be proactive.

When disappointments and discouragements come like a flood, don’t give up. Regroup and explore new options. Press on because there is an answer and you will find it.

5.  Be thankful for everything.

Spend time thinking about the things that you have to be grateful for. Don’t dwell on the “don’t haves” but dwell on the blessings. It will surprise you how blessed you truly are!


Are you the “Authentic Self” you need to be today?


As I sat pondering the issues of the day, I realize each of us should seek to find the path to an “Authentic life.” What does it mean to be “True to Ourselves?” That means being true to yourself and embracing God’s plan for your life. I know for many people this is a deep concept and feel they are too busy to even consider what this would mean for their lives. I can tell you it would mean peace, joy, and fulfillment with yourself and your life. It is a journey that happens when you wake knowing you have been given a gift. A gift of another day on this earth. The question is…“Will you fill it consuming stuff or empowering yourself to listen to your inner voice that has been trying to get your attention for a long time.” That voice that will guide you to who you are and how you can experience real and sustaining happiness. When you are on the path to an “Authentic Life” you will find your world-changing. You may find old friends leaving your path and new one’s coming into your life. When buying shoes, clothes, and more stuff use to be top on your list of priorities.  It is funny how the change in your life happens. It doesn’t come at a certain age… or experience… it comes gradually and over time it evolves and you realize you are different. You are clear about what is important to you and what you want to see in your life. The process for many always has a spiritual awakening. That doesn’t mean you have just found God. It means the relationship has become stronger…intimate and living in you in a way that you must experience to truly understand. The stress of everyday life doesn’t have the same effect it use to. You know all will work to the good and the outcome will not have a negative effect on your life. Joy is something you experience more and more for know particular reason. It’s like a rebirth to the person you were meant to be and you like her or him and you accept all the imperfections with a smile. Are you asking yourself the following questions? What do I want  when I grow up? Can I really make a living doing what I love? What is my life’s work? The following situations may fit you: Are you in a career transition? Are you in a relationship change? Can’t seem to get ahead in your career? Feeling burned out, stuck? Starting a new business and feeling overwhelmed? Need to develop your leadership/management skills? Are you nearing retirement and would like direction as you enter this new, exciting phase of your life? These are signs that you are seeking change…change that allows you; to be true to yourself. Your inner voice is getting stronger and directing you to what you need to feel complete. Directing you to an authentic life that allows you to cleanse yourself of old worries and embrace a simpler lifestyle that has room for you. This is a perfect time to start a journal on what you are feeling and what you want. This will be useful when you start to put your action plan together to live authentically. Remember, writing down your thoughts will make your needs real and desired outcome a reality. Some Ways to Live Authentically… Know your purpose – Are you wandering through life with little direction – hoping that you’ll find happiness, health and prosperity? Identify your life purpose or mission statement. This will help you stay on track to your goals. Know your values – What do you value most? Make a list of your top 5 values. Some examples are security, freedom, family, spiritual development, learning. As you set your goals – check your goals against your values. Know your needs – Unmet needs can keep you from living authentically. Take care of yourself. Do you have a need to be acknowledged, to be right, to be in control, to be loved? List your top four needs and outline how to get them achieved. Know your passions – Honor those things that make your heart sing. Whatever it is, do more of it! Live from the inside out – Increase your awareness of your inner wisdom by regularly reflecting in silence. Commune with nature. Breathe deeply to quiet your distracted mind. Honor your strengths – What special talents do you have? List three – if you get stuck, ask those closest to you to help identify these. Are you imaginative, good with your hands, etc? Express your authentic self through your strengths. Take time to play – Give yourself time to recharge doing things you love to do or by just doing nothing. Be aware of your self-talk. Are you blocking your potential? Check out your first thoughts when you wake tomorrow. Are they supportive, encouraging or positive? Surround yourself with inspiration – Keep a success journal. The last day of each month, write down all your accomplishments, both big and small. Serve others – When you are true to who you are, living your purpose and giving of your talents to the world around you, you give back in service what you came to share with others – your spirit – your essence.
