Great article and questions that help you dig a little deeper into your purpose. Ultimately, our purpose is joy. Your job is to determine what brings you the most joy in life and to then follow the path that leads in that direction.
Recently, I’ve noticed 5 and 10 day gratitude challenges circulating around Facebook. I’ve enjoyed reading some of the posts and thought it a bit humorous when a few began to grumble about running out of ideas to jot down on their lists. Since today is my 105th consecutive day of writing 10 DIFFERENT “things” each day for which I am grateful, I thought I would share how this practice of gratitude has changed my perspective and my life.
The key to creating abundance in any area of your life – financial, love, peace, joy, fulfillment, health, etc. – is feeling abundant NOW. You have to feel it in your bones every minute of every day. Read More
If you’re unhappy at work, frustrated because you can’t find that perfect job or angry at co-workers or bosses who are ruining your life at work, I have some wisdom to share…You’re looking for “love” in all the wrong places.
Our happiness at work, and everywhere else in life, is 100% dependent on what we think about ourselves and whatever is going on in our current experience. Being happy is a choice that we make every moment of every day. The challenge is becoming aware of our thoughts and then consciously choosing thoughts that cause us to feel better about ourselves and our work.
Here are some simple things YOU can do to bring more joy and happiness into your work experience: Read More
Chances are, no matter what your current job is, you have the opportunity to fulfill your calling right now. Many of us think that a “calling” is about a specific job or profession, and sometimes this is true. For instance, most artists – from musicians and writers to wood workers and painters – feel that they are called and well equipped (meaning they have the talent) to do and be that. I have always felt that these people are truly blessed to know exactly what brings joy to their hearts and to be able to then monetize it. For the rest of us “differently” talented individuals, our callings are a bit more elusive and can take us half a lifetime to figure out. It doesn’t have to be this way though.
Our calling, or purpose, unfolds throughout our lives. It even changes depending upon our experiences and the opportunities that we dive into along the way. Our calling evolves just as we do over the course of our lives.
So what if you’re in an ordinary job, surrounded by ordinary people? Read More
For a while I have known that job search coaching is not my passion but rather something that I just know and am comfortable providing my expertise. It does not rock my world though because most people get caught up in the resumes and cover letters, and a great job search experience with awesome results is a lot more about a person’s mindset and their appreciation of their own value than about paperwork. So in May, I entered into a 12 month coaching certification program and began thinking about the possible niches that I felt compelled to serve. One of the downsides to being a person that sees possibility and opportunities all around me is that I often feel overwhelmed with the myriad of options, and inevitably I get stuck and end up in limbo until something pushes me one way or the other.

This is a wonderful article about creating “balance” and joy in our lives just by doing a little mind works.
The greatest danger related to looking for a new job while you’re currently employed in a job you hate (for whatever reason) is that you are very likely to end up right back in the same situation, just at a different location with different characters. Why? Because like attracts like, and your negative energy cannot attract anything but similar people and experiences into your life.
Emotions are energy in motion. They create a vibration that emits from you out into the universe. If you are angry, your vibration takes on an angry “frequency.” Just like a radio… Read More
I want to teach the world to “breathe LOVE.”
Take a deep breath. Let it out slowly…and again…and again. As you breathe in, think of whomever or whatever you are wanting to uplift or support or connect to with your love, and FEEL the essence of that love deeply and unconditionally. Just FEEL the love. As you exhale, release each breath slowly and attach to its flow the love you are feeling in this moment. Do this for 68 seconds, approximately 6 to 8 deep breaths in and out, at least once each day. I recommend this as an afternoon rejuvenating exercise. In fact, I propose we start a new workplace practice called, “the LOVE break.” J
Why feel love and why 68 seconds? Read More
