How Being In The Moment Completes Great Projects

There are two fatal errors that keep great projects from coming to life:

Not finishing

Not starting

-Buddha

Many people stop just before the diet really works or right before they finish a project that could lead them to a new sense of accomplishment. It is too easy at times to walk away and “get by” with just enough at the end of the day rather than asking ourselves, “Did I give this day, this moment, this relationship, this patient all I have”…..I realized a number of years ago when I would see someone for counseling that they would talk about every subject in the world…until we got to the last five minutes and then they would start addressing the real issues.

Don’t wait in your life, at your work, with your friends or colleagues for t he last five minutes. Be dedicated to be authentic and give all that you can in this moment. When you are at work…focus your attention there, when you are with your child do not think about work….being present is so crucial to benefiting from the magic that lives right now…

Nike expressed the concept best when their advertising campaign stated, Just Do It! Get started on that dream, the letter, the yard, the great things you are waiting to have happen….break your projects into tiny ones…in other words rather than waiting a day to read a good book…read a chapter a day….you can read a few books a year this way versus never reading at all. Instead of waiting to redo your home…do one area at a time….remember to keep it simple….if we make a new idea overwhelming we will not start it…or if we do….we will not finish it.

If the true intention is to feel better about yourself….then make sure what you are finishing or what you are starting falls into that paradigm.

Sending you the energy of Love, Joy and Abundant Blessings.

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

I have been doing christening ceremonies for the past twenty-three years, and each time I invite everyone from the immediate “village,” who are there to support the child to come into a circle. I always ask, “What do you wish and pray for with this child?” The answers come quickly: to live his dreams, to…

Chipping Away

Chipping Away

As we do our work…. Imagine your life as a giant block of stone. The stone has potential and purpose, but in its current form, it doesn’t speak to your soul. So you get out a chisel and start chipping. You chip away bad habits. You chip away unnecessary material goods. You chip away ideals…

“Whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” Mark 11:24 Several years ago, I was training employees at a healthcare facility when one nurse asked to see me during lunch. “I don’t know why I feel so strongly about showing these photos to you but I feel…
