Life According to Plan?

Posted by on Dec 8, 2011 in Emotional Mastery, Freedom, Gratitude, Life Purpose, Mindset, Responsibility, Success | Comments Off

So, last nights movie was The Adjustment Bureau with Matt Damon. I had no idea what it was about, but I figured I couldn’t go wrong with Matt Damon right? Turns out it’s about an affair between a politician and a ballerina affected by mysterious forces keeping them apart. A romantic tale of “you and me against the world,” and in this case the world is the hands of fate; Destiny. Two lovers apparently not meant to be together, it doesn’t fit the plan. The “hands of fate” in this case is a team of fedora...

The Need for Love

The Need of Love in difficult situations. How does this work? Love should never have to be a choice. But when it comes to difficult situations like the choice between you, your husband or your children what happens then? Well they cannot take care of themselves, they are apart of you and it’s your job to look after them, you have a duty of care of them because they are not adults, you are the one to make empowered decisions and choices on their behalf. What happens when they grow up? How would that leave your relationship with partner? It is...

Are You A Bouncing Ball? … Checking In On You!

I have had several people recently tell me in their own unique ways that they felt something like a bouncing ball in life. Trying to juggle work, school, health and family responsibilities can be overwhelming, leaving someone to feel out of balance, disconnected and unfocused. Many of us can get caught up in busy and active lives. We start treading water and just surviving rather than making purposeful choices and actions with ourselves and others. This can be slippery slope in any relationship. I think it’s important to take a quick...

Playing full out!

This is a video of the great Maya Plisetskaya dancing the dying Swan. She is 61 here. You see her dancing like this at 61 and you think to yourself: “There’s a woman who plays full out! Who is living life to the fullest! Squeezing the juice out of life!” You are probably imagining her activity filled days, her rehearsals and the rigorous training she still has to undergo to keep her body and her skills at a high performance level. This is someone who clearly pushes her own limits! But here are her own words as she describes working for...

Of Eagles and Mer-people

What do you think of dreams? That they are messages from the unconscious, that they are the result of the mind processing the days events, that they are prophetic or that they have no meaning at all, and are just nonsense? A dream I had two nights in a row this week left me with a feeling of the numinosity of dreams and their meanings, and made me recall another magic dream from years ago. I dreamt that my husband was looking for a house in the city for us to rent. The first one was okay, very ordinary and nothing to rave about. The second...

So what is coaching exactly?

What is coaching? Coaching is the practice of supporting, challenging and empowering an individual or group/team through the process of achieving a specific personal or professional result via cutting edge strategies and change techniques. It is distinct from training and mentoring, in that the coach/client relationship is one of trust, accountability and responsiveness.

Why do people unsubscribe or even block you?

Why do people unsubscribe or even block you?

It is very easy to take this personally. What did you do? Did you offend them? How can you fix it? Don’t they  like you? You can really beat yourself up over this, But  people are people, they will do what they do best which is take offence, be prejudice and state their opinion. The important thing to remember is Never Take it Personally. They may have issues: Actually we all do but some handle theirs differently to others. Some handle this by excluding instead of including and finding out any needed reasons. Email overload:...

I love shopping! I don’t care what it is, I’ll offer to help my friends shop. Need a car? Oh, let me go online and research for you! Need to find the perfect dress? Please, let me go with you! Yes, I love to shop! Shopping for a coach? Well, maybe not so much.  But, I look at this this way…. When it comes to choosing a life coach, finding the right one for you is like finding the right running shoes. Sometimes, off and running, you find a pair that fit just right.  But, sometimes you have to try on a couple pair and...
