Will Power – Won’t

The more things you do, the more you can do.

— Lucille Ball

Have you ever noticed how hard it is to pass up temptation when it’s there all the time?

Some of this problem is that once we decide that we’d really like that donut or mocha or french fry, it seems that they’re everywhere.  So, we don’t have to pass up the temptation once.  We have to keep making the same decision over and over.

It’s the same as the phenomenon of deciding to buy a red Explorer and then seeing Continue reading » Will Power – Won’t

Fascinating Goals Have Thrilling PULL-POWER!

Are your goals fascinating enough to pull you past your fear?

Goals without values are bullies that push you around. On the other hand, [goals] aligned with your values pull you toward them.

Have you ever played with [amazon-product text=”a fistful of magnets” type=”text”]B002N2NANW[/amazon-product]?  It’s a cool, hands-on way to experience the difference between feeling repelled and feeling attracted… one is unpleasant, the other intriguing.  Much like magnets, your goals can either push you away from, or pull you towards achieving new outcomes.

Fascinating Goals

What if we could create “fascinating” goals – goals that would literally pull us forward into bewitching futures? Sally Hogshead, author of [amazon-product text=”Fascinate: Your 7 Triggers to Persuasion and Captivation” type=”text”]0061714704[/amazon-product], outlines how to create goals that fascinate.

Find a goal that scares the crap out of you.

Do you have a goal that makes you a little uncomfortable?  You should. Continue reading » Fascinating Goals Have Thrilling PULL-POWER!

Feeling Good is Closer Than You Think

Forget love, I’d rather fall in chocolate.

— Anonymous

It seems that in my life, these last few weeks have had a theme to them.  We are not our feelings!  It seems strange to say, but it is true.

Just like Ellie said in yesterday’s post, “It’s amazingly easy to think that my view of the world is the only view – that my fishbowl IS reality, that my ‘story’ is THE story.”  It is also amazingly easy to think that my feelings are me, that they reflect reality.  My feelings are my reaction to my “story” in this moment.

Our Common Myth

Because feelings and story reinforce each other, we have a tendency to get caught up in what we’re feeling.  If we “feel good” then all must be Continue reading » Feeling Good is Closer Than You Think

Begin Again

How are those resolutions going?  Do you, like me, need a fresh start, a new beginning in order to persist in reaching your goals?

Life never presents us with anything which may not be looked upon as a fresh starting point, no less than as a termination.

Monday Morning

It’s Monday morning and I’m dressed, ready to go out for my walk – yet here I am, writing this post instead.  Lately it’s been a challenge to get myself out for my morning walk.  And an even tougher task to eat in ways that cause me to shed pounds.

Not too long ago I was cruising along doing both with ease.  No such luck now.  I can come up with every excuse in the book for not going out first thing in the morning.  And my sweet-tooth plagues me.

This has GOT to turn around.  Now would be a good time.  I need a fresh start at this losing weight and getting fit stuff.  I’m barely holding my own here.  And it’s waaaaaay too soon to be in maintenance mode.

Could writing this post serve as Continue reading » Begin Again

Having Fun is Essential to Resistance

Malibu ready to pounce

If it’s not fun, you’re not doing it right.

— Bob Basso

Boy, have we been having fun!  Malibu, the new kitten, put on 9 ounces in the week between vet visits.  Considering that when we weighed him the first time he was 1 pound 5 ounces, that’s an amazing 43% weight gain – the healthy kind.  He has been here about two weeks and he is the most spoiled kitty I’ve ever seen – and, trust me, I’ve seen some SPOILED kitties.

Every morning, after my prayerful meditation, I go into my office (also known as Malibu’s room) and before I even get to his crate, he is purring.  What a wonderful way to start the day!  He is so happy to see me!  To be honest, this is because Continue reading » Having Fun is Essential to Resistance
