Presencing Your Life (Part II)

“The world will tell you that success is achieving what you set out to do. It will tell you that success is winning, that finding recognition and / or prosperity are essential ingredients in any success, but they are not success. What the world doesn’t tell you – because it doesn’t know – is that you cannot become successful. You can only be successful. Don’t let a mad world tell you that success is anything other than a successful present moment. And what is that? There is a sense of quality in what you do, even the most simple action. Quality implies care and attention, which comes with awareness. Quality requires your Presence.” -Eckhart Tolle

Presencing Your Life (Part I)

You know that person who makes you feel like you’re the only person in the world? Who looks at you and listens with their entire being?  You feel completely seen and heard. Sometimes it’s overwhelming because it feels like someone is looking into your soul. I can count on one hand how many people have made me feel this way. It’s extremely rare. Then there’s that person who’s already thinking about her response before you’ve finished talking. Assessing how it relates to her life. Formulating advice. Interrupting because she got so excited.

FORGET New Year's Resolutions

What I have found to be much more helpful is to reflect on what happened this year.  One question I ask many executives I’m coaching is when do they have time for reflection?  Few set aside time. If you don’t make time, it won’t happen. So now’s an opportunity to do this. Especially if you’re the leader of an organization. This exercise will be more helpful than any “strategic planning” exercise because it will give you REAL concrete examples from your own life. Any future vision, life plan, or process will be much stronger if you’ve reflected on what actually happened.

3 Keys to Harness Your Energy

We all have gifts to contribute to this world that carry boundless reams of creative energy. Yet we don’t always know how to harness our energy effectively. To the contrary, we often restrict our own energy, which inhibits us from tapping into a higher intelligence and higher wisdom. We try to control things, which diminishes our true potential. What do we get? Suboptimal results. In fact, sometimes the results actually suck. How we harness our energy will affect absolutely everything in our life: work, love, food, health.

Do You Listen to Your Body?

The body is amazing. It will tell you exactly how it’s doing and what it needs. We just need to LISTEN. If we are in constant overdrive, we won’t hear it. Too often we push these messages aside because we’re too busy. We numb ourselves to pain or learn to deal with it. Chronic illness does not happen overnight. It happens little by little until one day you’re in crisis - and then it’s often too late. When you start to pay attention and get to know your body intimately, you will hear exactly what it’s telling you, and what you’re meant to do.
