Your Own Personal Mission Statement

May 27, 2023

Ok, so just got off the phone with a good friend. We were discussing the importance of defining your own personal mission statement.

Why are you here? What is your purpose in life? What is your life’s mission? What do you wish to accomplish? Where would you like to go? How can you help?

Life is short, and life is FAST… We are all on this sphere of electrons, protons, and neutrons spinning …at outrageous speeds. The circumference of the Earth at the equator is approx 25,000 miles. The Earth rotates in about 24 hours. Therefore, if you were Read more

8 Ways To Deal With Stress

May 25, 2023

Part of success in life is how well we deal with stress. The beauty of this is we can learn to deal better with stress so it is a life skill we can improve. No one can make us do anything. People and events do not cause us stress; it is our reaction to what happens that can or cannot cause us stress. The beauty of this is that we can choose to control our reaction.

The following are eight ways I deal with stress:

1. I figure out what I can control. stress for me is caused by situations that are out of my control. Even if this is the case, there is always something that I can do that is within my control. For example, I cannot control currency fluctuations but I can take actions that cause them to have less financial impact on me.

What’s Your Why?

May 16, 2023

This may be the most compelling word of all. “Why”. It motivates people to think and wonder. Children ask “why” of everything.

The reason “why” is so important in human thought is that thought revolves around meaning. If something has no meaning to us, we ignore it. When it takes on meaning, we fix our attention on it.

Without meaning, there is no internal motivation or purpose to take action and depression sets in. Without meaning, we don’t feel alive. That’s why it is so valuable to set goals for yourself. When we have a goal on which to focus, our life tends to reorganize itself around making it happen. The resources, solutions and answers start to appear.

Deep within you, you know what you are designed to do. There is a voice, a feeling, a sixth sense that tells you. We all have experienced the feeling that things would unfold in a particular direction, for a particular reason…destiny, fate.

I believe that all of us “know” our calling. We just fail to NOTICE. Marsha Sinetar wrote a book titled “Do What You Love, The Money Will Follow”. In my experience, that’s true. Things may not turn out as we originally hoped or expected, but the path is worth following.

Our interests and impulses are messages we should listen to. Follow your gut instinct. As Emerson said, “Desire is possibility seeking expression.” So, if something fascinates or fulfills you, you really should take notice. Your natural path may be calling you.

Improve Your Speaking Voice

May 4, 2023

The way in which a person speaks can contribute either positively or negatively to a perception of magnetism. Often, more significance is attached to the way something is said than to what is actually being said. A forceful voice, which includes a consistent tone without vocalized pauses, connotes power, control, and confidence, thus contributing to a perception of magnetism. On the other hand, a whispery, wimpy voice detracts from a person sounding confident and being able to take charge to influence others. Avoiding an annoying voice quality can have a positive impact on others.

One research surveyed a nationwide sample of 1,000 men and women, and asked the question, “Which irritating or unpleasant voice annoys you the most?” The answer was a whining, complaining, or nagging tone. The same research concluded that we are judged by the way we sound and that careers can be damaged by an unpleasant voice. People judge our intelligence much more by how we sound than how we dress. However, the conclusion that voice quality contributes to or detracts from magnetism does not imply that there is no room for individuality in this dimension. A nice, pleasant and magnetic voice can encompass a wide range of regional accents, such as the former business executive and Reform Party presidential candidate H. Ross Perot and financier Donald Trump. Read more
