Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down – Karen Carpenter –

It always fascinates me how many ways we limit ourselves on a daily basis. We have created a belief in limitation and when we put boxes around situations they become true for us. Some people feel that they will always have the same sickness that their parents have… or they will die at the same age their parents did… or that true love will not happen to them. Some people feel rainy days make them depressed.. while others thrive when it rains… love to go play in it… and knows that the flowers benefit tremendously. After having my own business for so many years, I was so shocked when I returned to the corporate world and realized how many people are living in small mindsets. One guy spent the entire day on Monday trying to wake up. All day long on Monday he would complain that he was so tired… and on Wednesday, he was happier because it was the middle of the week and on Friday he was preoccupied by what he and his kids were doing for the weekend. He spent his time walking around the office and just looking at what others were doing. It appeared he would only work three out of the five days he was at work. I guess we could say that if anything… he was consistent. However, he robbed an employer that paid him good money by a reality that he created for himself and then he wondered why he was not a great success.

Think this week about your beliefs and how you set yourself up. Do you say before you even enter a week how tired you are going to be… or before you ever date a new person that love will let you down.

Change the patterns that keep you from realizing your highest potential.

Do you have any repetitive patterns in your life? If so, what are they? Where did these patterns begin, and what actions…

Why is Change Hard?

Why is Change Hard?

We often are determined to make change hard. I once saw a couple that was having major problems because the wife did not want to clean the house and the husband did not think it was his job. Except for this one thing, they told me, they were very happy. I said to them, “You…

The Kingdom is Yours

Being angry and disconnected from the Creator who gave you life is like having a parent who, unbeknownst to you, is very, very rich. You have denied yourself a relationship with this parent all your life, and one day you realize that you could have inherited amazing riches had you been willing to open your…

Your Amazing Riches

Your Amazing Riches

Who birthed us (our earthly story) is small compared to our sacred story (our creation story), which we should recognize and honor. Until we connect with our creation story and recognize the Creator who has given us life, we will be incapable of truly living and being born into our magnificent selves. Being angry and…
