Happiness Is The Means With Its Own End

 “There is no way to Happiness, Happiness is the way.” – Wayne Dyer What Is Happiness? According to Wikipedia, one definition of Happiness is: “a mental state of well-being characterized by positive emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy.” It’s What Everybody Wants I think it would be fair to say that just about everybody wants to be happy all of the time.  Who wouldn’t want to live every day within the range of positive emotions between contentment and intense joy? It’s pretty much a universal goal.  And yet, with billions of people on the planet striving to be happy, there aren’t that many succeeding on a consistent...

A Tale of Two City Guys

If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment. – Marcus Aurelius Do you know when Marcus Aurelius said that? Almost two-thousand years ago! And yet, it still bears repeating on an almost daily basis to remind ourselves when we face our inevitable external challenges that there is always a choice to be made: how we feel about them. Keep this in mind. The Tale Once upon a time, there were two young city guys, Marvin and Peter. Marvin had an old motorcycle that wasn’t particularly reliable, but it sure was a lot of fun. Together they shared the many...

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 the first time with Roland Petit, on the production of La Rose Malade: Roland himself rehearsed with me, not trusting the coach....

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 compare. Still other times, you have to run around the block a couple times. Sometimes people finally cultivate the courage to...

Start now!

 If you’re reading this, I’m hoping that you, like me, know that you have a soul and that it is eternal. And hopefully you know that your soul came to this world with its own promise. Its own mission. Just like 007. Well, maybe not with the gun and the cool car, but you, too, are meant to do something in this world that only you can do. And whether you refer to this as “answering your calling” or “doing your life’s work” be aware that forces stronger than your dreams are trying to prevent you from living them and keep you just where you are. In comfort. But it’s never too late to change. We are often bombarded with our own...

The self-fulfilling prophecy

Often what we tell ourselves about the events of our lives and the meaning we give our different life phases can affect not only the way we see ourselves, but also affect our future. I know many people who believe their best years were when they were growing up, or when they were in their twenties. Others still believe that they reach their prime and have their best years in their thirties, and then after that it’s all downhill. Still others think that they only reach their peak when they hit forty, and it is common now to hear the phrase that the fifties are the new forties – who knows what after that! This belief always fascinated me, because I remember as...
