Embrace Your Emotions and Lean Into Change.

A new normal is coming and you can chose to stay stuck in the past and in fear or lean into your emotions and start to make changes for the future, now.

When new challenges and new pain comes our way, old ways of dealing just won’t get the job done. This means new tools, new resources and new ways of thinking are required.

Change isn’t coming, it’s already here. Are you ready to embrace it?

A Changing Social Life = A Changing Life

When we change one thing, we change everything. When we change a big thing in our lives, we transform our lives.

Now that the dust has started to settle and we’re hitting our third week of our extended home-stay, new habits and new normals are getting engrained into our lives and minds.

I’ve noticed a stronger sense of calmness and a stronger sense of “now is the time to make change” this week for sure. How about you?

What You Don’t Want > What You Do Want

Life has changed in a a big way right now, and this isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

If we chose to, we can use this extended home-stay to take a look within, decide what’s working in our lives, what isn’t and start to pivot and make major changes for the better. We can do all of this and use this time as a transformational container or we can continue to distract ourselves and do nothing. The choice is really up to each of us to decide.

The “Sweet Spot”: The Intersection of Happiness and Success.

Most of us have no idea what we want, many of us don’t even know what we don’t want.

We then wonder why we are not happy; we then wonder why we are unfulfilled; we then wonder why we can’t get to where we want to go.

How can we honestly expect to achieve our goals and create our dreams if we haven’t defined our destination?

We wouldn’t do this in business, we wouldn’t do this with a personal trainer, it would be a waste of time and maybe even get someone fired.

But, for some reason, when it comes to our happiness and dreams, we think the rules are different.

They are not.

3 Simple Steps to Find Your “Sweet Spot” and Create Success in Your Life and Career.

The teachings I throw down are meant to be tried, tested and then used, but only if they work.

The same goes for all spiritual teachings of the world; I’ve notice however, that we tend to not embody them, rather we tend to just quote them or stick them up on our social media accounts.

I always want to know as a student myself and always want all students to strive to understand how lessons or teachings apply to our daily lives. Everyone, especially in cities like San Francisco, L.A. or New York with fast paces, big lights and stressors galore need tools. Big tools.

Part of what I’m here to do and part of my expertise is to distill metaphysical teachings and put them into layman’s terms. This got me thinking, and got me excited to share a teaching I recently found in a business book.

In the book “The Real-Life MBA”, by Jack Welch, the author outlines what he calls the “Area of Destiny”. This is a cutting edge philosophy, where Welch delivers a framework to discover and create exactly what you want in your life and career.

Welch, challenges the reader to line their life up in a way the creates an intersection of what they are good at and what they like to do.

This is profound . This business man is offering sage advice.

The Path to the Perfect Body and Why You Don’t Want It

I recently found a picture of myself from three years ago. I could not believe how ripped I was! Muscles everywhere, almost glistening in the light.

At the time, I was laser-focused on my diet, weightlifting program and yoga practice. I was enslaved to my body’s form – obsessed with how it looked and what it could do. I was in physical pain from exercising so much. If I missed a session, I got a workout in guilt.

My body looked better than it ever has. But I could not see or appreciate it. I thought that my body was not in that good of shape.

Your Relationship Is Your Problem

We obsess over our relationship status in our society.

Can I call her my girlfriend yet? When is he going to propose? Can I leave her and start over? Can I omit that I am a divorcée? Will my tombstone read: “SINGLE”? And maybe the most troubling: Am I lovable?

As we fixate on a relationship with a partner, we overlook that we are all in relationship, at all times, to everything in our lives. How we are in these relationships determines how our experience looks and feels in every moment of our lives, which is longer than most romances endure.

Our relationship to our world ultimately determines our levels of stress and, as a result, our levels of happiness. So let’s pay more attention to it.Read more
