A Message From Atlas Lalanne

“That which does not kill us makes us stronger.”– Friedrich Nietzsche  Atlas the Mighty Mouse! Hey, listen. Mice like me aren’t born strong you know, and neither are you.  In fact, you human beings are born relatively weak and helpless! Without total care and support you’d die.  Your mothers (or other caregivers), God Bless ‘em all, keep you fed and warm and safe, day and night for weeks, months–even years.  But that support is only temporary. Eventually you’ve gotta stand on your own two feet and take care of yourselves as well as others. How do you survive when your mother’s support is no longer there?  You...

Life According to Plan?

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

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 wearing men; the Adjustment Bureau, whose attempts to keep them in line and make sure they stay on their chosen path proves...

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 true that your relationship with your children is totally different to the relationship that you have with your partner. That is...

A Tale of Two City Guys

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...

Stuck Part 2 – PULL!!

So Mini You has you on living on auto pilot eh…. You cannot change the things you want in your life? Well, congratulations! Huh??? Congratulations? Yes!! Congratulations! Why? Well, because at least you know what you want to change! You are aware that there is stuff you need to do. In order to know that there is work to be done you first need to realize that you are not where you want to be. So, this means that you know where you want to be. So you know where you are (A) you know where you want to be (B) and now all you have to know is how to close the gap. Most people are not even aware of B or A and they never will be. But you are, so congratulations! The good...

Stuck in a Pattern you can’t get out of

You will never know who you really are and what power you have if you never take a chance. There’s a part of you that is always fearful and only looks in the short term that screams murder when you want to do something that is potentially threatening to your survival. Let’s call it Mini You because that’s what it really is: the minimal version of you. According to Mini You a lot of things are scary: bungee jumping, driving a fast car, scuba diving but also a new job, a better relationship, going for your dream to live in another country, trusting people, sharing with others, opening up to name but a few. Mini You wants you to stay away from “risks” and do...

Eye of the Beholder

Eye of the Beholder

One of the greatest gifts, if not the greatest gift, of being human is our ability to choose. While it may not always seem like life is affording us the option to choose, we always have a choice. Chocolate or vanilla. Right or left. Smile or cry. Give or take. In situations where we can’t change the outcome, we can always change how we react to the outcome. In other words, even if the situation is out of our hands, what we do with it is always in our hands. We are 100% in control of  what meaning we give to the situation. We can’t control every single thing that happens in our own lives, let alone in the lives around us, or in the world. In fact if you wanted it to...

Choose your standards, choose your life

Choose your standards, choose your life

Everybody has a standard and everybody has the highest standard. Right! Most of us live according to our standard. Our standard in our finances, our relationships, our health and fitness and what we put into our body every day etc. This standard is often unconscious but it is certainly programmed deep within us. We learned them from our parents, our friends in school, the media etc. This standard determines what we expect and what we do. An example of a standard at work is when someone that never had money all of a sudden wins the lottery. Guess what often happens? They are usually broke in 3 to 5 years after winning the money. Why? Because of their standard. The...
