The Secret to Your Success

What is it that differentiates those who are happy, fulfilled, successful, and living in the flow of the life they are meant to live?  Sure it’s the natural abilities, talents, and resources they possess.  But everyone has natural talents, abilities, and resources.  What determines who realizes their potential and who doesn’t?

The answer is mind-body skills.

Whatever success means to you, these four skills will determine if you achieve what you desire or not.  They are the secrets to your fulfillment in all dimensions of your life.  So what are these mind-body skills?

1. Body Awareness: the ability to sense inside your physical body and with that the ability to relax and be present and centered.

2. Emotional Awareness: the ability to feel your emotions and with that the ability to understand what your emotions are telling you and to use emotional energy to fuel your life.

3. Mental Awareness: the ability to know your thoughts and beliefs and with that the ability to clear and focus your mind.

4. Spiritual Awareness: the ability to envision “who you are” and “what you are here to do” and with that the ability to actualize your authentic possibilities in service to the One Life that we all share.

Mind-body training is about cultivating these skills.  This blog is about sharing tips and resources to help you practice them on a daily basis.

Enjoy your practice!

Own It To Change It

We learn at a very early age to say things like “I didn’t do it,” “It’s not my fault,” and “They did this.” On the surface, this seems like a solid strategy to make your life easier. In reality, it’s only a good strategy if you want to live your life as a victim of circumstances.

As you journey through life you’ll likely discover that “I didn’t do it” is a belief that will get in your way. When you don’t see the part that you play in what is happening in your life, you have no power to create positive change. That statement keeps you trapped in cycles of victimhood in which everyone else is to blame.

At some point, it’s important to “own it to change it.”

When you see anything in life that you don’t like, when you experience anything frustrating, painful, or unfortunate, your power lies in taking personal responsibility for it. If you are willing to step up to the plate and say “Yes, I did that” or, at least “I played a role in what’s happening,” you’ve taken the first step toward personal power and positive change.

Only when you own your part in what is happening do you gain the ability to do something about it. If you can be specific about exactly how you are contributing to what is happening, you can take specific action to remedy the situation. By seeing exactly what you are doing you’ll see exactly what you could do differently to create a different result.

In highly complex situations, you may not be able to discern exactly what you can do to change them, but you can begin with this attitude: “I played a part in this, please forgive me, I’ll do what I can to make a positive difference.”

If you take that approach whenever you see something that you don’t like, you’re on the road to real transformation and making a positive difference for us all.
