Worry is one of the biggest obstacles to creating what people want in their lives. Most of us grew up with the idea that if you weren't worrying you just didn't care about the outcome. I've heard parents say, "It's my job to worry about my children." Worry comes up because you fear you won't get what you want or that something bad will happen. Or, you might think that worry will cause you to be prepared in the event that things don't work out.
Worry is a lack of trust in the Universe/The-All-That-Is/Source/God. It's a lack of trust in ourselves as creator beings. The truth is that we aren't meant to struggle. We're meant to thrive. Life is supposed to be fun and easy. When you are in alignment with what you want, you embrace a feeling of lightness, joy, appreciation and trust. Worry actually keeps what you want away from you. If you are sending out a vibration of worry, then you simply attract more worry.

3 Reasons Working Alone Can Kill Your Success

By W Timothy Johnson

One of the biggest problems people have in achieving their Goals is that they get discouraged, distracted or diverted from the end result. Given the level of cultural noise most of us experience today, it can be extremely difficult to focus on what needs to be done. I speak from experience here. I find myself torn in multiple directions, less because I'm trying to do than having legitimate responsibilities that pop up.

So, how do we handle these situations? For many of us we try to power through what's going on. We try to get it all done in the same time it would take to do a quarter of what's landed on our plates. We try to go it alone. We work long hours and become exhausted, unable to get anything done, much less all of it.
In these situations the common factor is often that we're working alone. We're working on our Goals alone. We're working on our responsibilities alone. We're working on the solutions alone. That's one of the wors…

By Richard Brody

Although, many individuals, either, are elected, selected, and/ or, ascend, to certain positions of leadership, no one, earns the right, to be considered, as a genuine leader, until/ unless, he can be counted on, to effectively, LEAD others, in a meaningful, relevant, service - oriented manner! True leaders avoid blaming, and complaining, and are willing to assume personal responsibility! How can anyone, make a difference, for the better, and earn the necessary respect, unless/ until, he clearly demonstrates, he will be a vehicles, for quality, relevant, sustainable, change? With that in mind, this article will attempt to briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means, and why, it's so essential, to becoming a true leader.

1. Listen; learn; lessons; leading: One must be ready, willing, and able, to listen, effectively, and thoroughly, far more, than he speaks, This is often challenging, because, for many, their favorite…

Using Pleasure to Create the Life You Want

By Dr Kate Siner

Our pleasure shows us where we are in alignment. It is a natural built-in system that shows us what is right for us. However, not all experiences we might label as pleasurable are created equal.
It is helpful to learn to differentiate between types of pleasure. For example, eating a piece of chocolate cake might feel good in the moment, but that does not necessarily mean it is in alignment with you. To determine whether it is or not, you need to pay attention to the entire experience. How do you feel after you eat the chocolate cake? Does it continue to be a pleasurable experience?


It is also helpful to pay attention to the quality of the pleasure. Is it consistent throughout the layers of the experience? Using the same example of the chocolate cake, it might feel good in your mouth but not in your body. Or, maybe it negatively impacts our emotions because it's more food than we actually need and we know it, and so we feel a little uncomfortable about having eaten it…

By   |  Your morning ritual is a special promise you make to yourself. And while the promise is important, it's KEEPING that promise that builds self-trust and sustains you.
In solitude, and in the promises you make and keep, you craft a bridge between your essential self and the challenges you meet as you go about your day.

TIP #1

TIP #2

Create a rewarding intention for your ritual each morning.
It is a simple way to affirm your power to bring happiness into your day. Begin your morning ritual describing just how you would like to support yo…
