The Mind Body Spirit Connection – Part 1: Energy

The Mind Body Spirit Connection – Part 1: Energy

If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration. ~ Nikola Tesla

Note: The Mind Body Spirit Connection is not something easily explained in one article.  I don’t even think a full-length novel could describe the intricacies of how these fundamentals of life react and work with each other.

And what makes it even more difficult is I am by no means an expert!  ::giggle::

My attempt will be to deliver a series of articles over the next several weeks giving us a basic understanding on what this connection is, what it does, and […]

5 Ways to Kick Off 2017 on the Right Foot

5 Ways to Kick Off 2017 on the Right Foot

A year from now you may wish you had started today. ~ Karen Lamb

At a very young age, I was taught a simple philosophy … early in the day, early in the week, early in the month, early in the year.

That philosophy became even more cemented when I read a book by one of my favorite human potential gurus, Brian Tracy … Eat That Frog.

The theme to both is very simple; start early … even if the task is something you don’t necessarily want to do.

Since we are only guaranteed this moment, we need to do everything we can now […]

Support: Overcoming Perfectionism

Support: Overcoming Perfectionism

If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place. ~ Nora Roberts

Let me tell you a story about a ceramics teacher who divided her class into two groups. She gave each group a separate assignment. One group’s focus was quantity and to make 50 pots. The other group’s assignment was on quality making the perfect pot.

At the week’s end, they were to judge who had the best pot. To their surprise, the quantity focused group won. Why?

The group concentrating on […]

2017 Word of the Year: HONE

2017 Word of the Year: HONE

Focus on something that you have a passion for and hone that skill; it will make you feel confident about your ability. ~ Victoria Justice

It’s that time of year.

The time where we reflect on the old and plan for the new.

Every year, since 2009, I have chosen to dispense with resolutions/goals and instead choose a word as a touchstone through the upcoming new year.

As a bit of history, my previous words were:

  • 2010 Emerge
  • 2011 Clarity
  • 2012 Jubilee
  • 2013 Liberate
  • 2014 Shift
  • 2015 Harvest
  • 2016 Breathe
  • 2017 Hone

Each word I chose helped me stay focused on my goals.

Take Breathe for example.  Whenever I had a decision to make, […]

Success: Tonya

Success: Tonya

Before working one on one with Biz, I lost weight with original protocol easily, but struggled to get through the days without feeling very deprived by the end of my rounds. This always set me up for failure in P3 & P4. I didn’t have the tools or the mind set to be able to keep the weight off long term.

Biz is truly a blessing. I have learned so much from her through my daily check in. Biz has been very supportive, and always offers helpful suggestions along the way. I’m so thankful to have her by my side in […]

Success: Diane (Updated)

Success: Diane (Updated)

I’ve lost weight before….several times actually. My focus was always an upcoming wedding, or event, or some deadline date by which I felt like I needed to lose weight.  I lost weight, then would regain it quickly. I repeated that cycle over and over. This time, after a year of feeling sick and overwhelmed and stressed and very, very tired, I decided to make a big lifestyle change and instead, focus on my health.  But this time, the weight loss is secondary. I feel healthier than I ever have in my life and I’m about to turn 40 this year.

Conquer Negativity and Stay Inspired

Conquer Negativity and Stay Inspired

Dwelling on the negative simply contributes to its power. ~ Shirley MacLaine

Staying inspired requires doing one’s best and avoiding negativity.  When our focal point is unhappy things, they only seem to multiply squeezing out inspiration. Finding or unearthing the good in a situation or circumstance takes work and is an art form.

Negativity surfaces in many forms. Sometimes people we are close to see every inconvenience as a crisis. At times trying to share inspiration and joy with someone results with them wanting to shut you down and then their proceeding to complain about life. Similarly, you may endeavor to look at the […]

Shoot for Long Term, Focus on Short Term

Shoot for Long Term, Focus on Short Term

Goals are a means to an end, not the ultimate purpose of our lives. They are simply a tool to concentrate our focus and move us in a direction. The only reason we really pursue goals is to cause ourselves to expand and grow. Achieving goals by themselves will never make us happy in the long term; it’s who you become, as you overcome the obstacles necessary to achieve your goals, that can give you the deepest and most long-lasting sense of fulfillment. ~ Anthony Robbins

What I like most from the quote above is — achieving goals isn’t what makes […]
