If not now, when?

When you look at your life, do you feel like not much has changed?

This is such an interesting question because I had assumed, at least for myself, that a lot had changed. But when I dug deeper I realized that I was not so sure. Much to my disappointment, I have the about the same amount in my bank account and the scale hasn’t moved much one way or the other. My satisfaction level with my life and relationships is holding steady but nothing is significantly different.

So, what is so bad about keeping life on an even keel? Absolutely nothing, unless of course, you want something to change and it has not. That is where the problem comes in, desiring change and not being able to attain it.

If I have learned anything this last year, it is that change requires not only willingness, but consistent and purposeful action toward the goal, whether it is personal or professional. It is true, you can’t do what you have always done and expect a different result; something has to change.

I have learned that you need to set yourself up for success by breaking the goal into small manageable pieces that you can do everyday. Case in point, I had been wanting to write my second book for for 5 or 6 years, always putting it on the back burner. One day a fellow writer and friend challenged me to get it done by September, which was 5 months away. After I tried to talk myself out of the idea, as I always do, this phrase keep coming back to me, If not now, when?  It would also mean breaking all the pieces down to small steps and accomplish a little over time.

That simple phrase helped me to shift my perspective from I can’t to Yes, indeed I can! It does not matter if your goal is big or small, you need support and a path and a plan to reach it. I challenge you to enlist someone that help you make a path and a plan and support you in the process.

Simple, Profound Wisdom

Every day we make thousands of decisions, some big and some small. Then there are some that need to be made and yet we sit on them, analyze the pro’s and con’s to death and never really make the decision. Maybe fear takes over or we are not confident in our ability to do it. Whatever it is, we stay stuck.

This past summer my granddaughter came for a visit and she taught me a simple, but yet profound piece of wisdom.  I took her to the amusement park at MOA to ride the approved rides, basically nothing that turned her upside down or was a roller coaster. However, the minute we walked in she spotted the roller coaster and wanted to ride it.  I explained that she would not like it and that her parents had told me she was scared to death of these rides. Doing my best to discourage her but nothing worked, as  she was determined to ride it.  After a careful assessment that she would be OK, I decided to let her try. Long story short, she came off that ride beaming from ear to ear, so proud of herself for doing. She rode another 3 times!

On the way home we talked about how she overcame her fear and how courageous she was for doing something that scared her. Then I asked her why she decided to ride it and she simply replied, “I just decided it was time and I did not want to be scared any more”. My jaw dropped at her wisdom and I wondered how many times fear kept me from making a decision.

I figure that if my granddaughter can overcome her fear just by deciding to do so, then I can too! How about you? Are you willing to make a decision that scares you?

Are You Being True to Yourself?

Those of you who know me, know I love my morning reflective time. This year I have the added benefit of reflecting on my life while watching a sunrise over the ocean.

This particular morning I was reflecting on my new book, Change Your Perspective, Change Your Life, and the reasons I wrote it. I know what it is to live a pretend life, I did it longer than I care to admit. It was not that I wanted to be phony, I just did not know how to face my doubts and fears and still fit into the world around me. Everyone looked like that knew how to navigate life, except me, so I pretended to be happy and have my life together, while I was dying inside. When a friend challenged me to make changes, the charade was over.

That is how my journey began. Once I started looking at my negative thoughts and limiting beliefs a whole new world opened up to me. When I realized how long I had lived like this and how good it felt, I wanted to help others do the same. Was I scared, of course, but the confidence far outweighed the fear.

That is why I tell my story as honestly as I can, became a Life Coach and wrote my latest book. If you have questions or just want to talk to me, just reply to this email. I promise I won’t bite and it won’t coast you a penny.
