Physically and Mentally Strong

With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.

— Eleanor Roosevelt

Are there things in your life that you’re tired of “dealing with?”

Have you wrestled with something most of your life and still not managed to conquer it?

The first thing that comes to my mind is the constant effort to get/be fit/trim.  It’s certainly something that many of us struggle with year after year.

I’m the kind of person who believes in possibility.  For years, if I had a problem, I believed that the way to solve it was to Continue reading » Physically and Mentally Strong

Where there is perfection there is no story to tell.

— Ben Okri

Today, many people in Western countries believe in their ability to change, to improve themselves.  For me, the idea of progress through change is a fact of life.  It had never occurred to me that people didn’t always believe that change was possible.  But, as Martin Seligman points out in Continue reading » Happy Un-Birthday to Imperfect Me

Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow.”

— Mary Anne Radmacher

We’ve all heard the old saw about – If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.  The part that they leave out is that if you just keep doing the same thing over and over, in most cases, it’s not going to lead to success.  It’s going to lead to frustration.

I find myself falling into this mistake every once in a while.  Usually, I do it with physical tasks – something requiring manual dexterity.  You may find this hard to believe, but I was born without Continue reading » If at First You Don’t Succeed, Try Again Differently

Starting over

Spring Has Sprung!

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.

— Maria Robinson

Spring has sprung… or at the very least is springing.  It’s a time of new birth and rebirth and the perfect time to get un-stuck and get started again.

There is an essential difference between a professional and an amateur.  When a professional makes a mistake, they know that they have to learn from their mistake so they can take the next opportunity when it shows up.  The amateur can choose to Continue reading » Spring Has Sprung!
