Just say NO

You feel it rise in you.  Anger, jealousy, resentment, envy, hate.... You are human and these emotions are in you for survival in a time that has past. They aren't very useful anymore. Say no to destructive emotions. Recognize that you are better, happier and healthier without them, and let them go…

You have two essential tasks in life - to be a good person and pursue an occupation that you enjoy and will give your talent fully in service to others. How are you doing on those?  


The Serenity Prayer in Action

Make the key distinction between that which you can control and that you cannot.  Ignore what you cannot change (like things that happened in the past). No amount or intensity of getting upset will change it. In fact, that just makes your life more negatively dramatic.  Instead, focus on what…

It's not what I wanted.  It was embarrassing/humiliating/disappointing/broke my heart. This stuff happens to all of us.  But it happened once.  Yet, how many times will we relive…


Unpreparedness = fear

You have a presentation to do for a group. You don't really know your stuff and you aren't prepared. You are nervous and worried. It's time...and you have to summon courage to get up there. You line up at a race. You have never done this before. You aren't really…


Is Genius Self-Bestowed?

"Mediocrity is self-inflicted. Genius is self-bestowed." - Glenn Clark, from "The man who tapped the secrets of the universe" We can develop genius in one or more areas with passion, focused concentration and practice to tap into the universal intelligence that is within us. We can also inflict mediocrity on…


How we do anything, is how we do everything

"If anything is worth doing, do it with all your heart." - Buddha Bring love and excellence to all you do. "A menial task which must be mine, that shall I glorify and make an art of it." - Walter Russell
