The Weekly – When You Change, Everything Changes

Back with a new set of eyes!

So many things I study all lead to the same thing – which is internal growth, external growth and the idea that we continue to evolve – or not.

After some study of Feng Shui (The Chinese art of placement) I got the notion that when you travel or go through a change, it’s smart to alter or change or shift something in your environment.

Doesn’t that make sense?

You leave your house, office, barn (in my case) in one place, one frame of mind and then you grow, you learn, you are challenged or confronted with a limiting belief, or you meet someone or some people who allow you a glimpse into another way to live.

Then, you are different.

Coming back to your house, office, barn, you see the environment you left (hopefully in a nice and tidy way) but there is a small feeling of unrest. There is also a wonderful feeling of relief and joy and wonder at how great your environment is (hopefully).

I know sleeping in my own bed is past wonderful after seven days of horse camping!

The unrest is what I want to talk about now.

That feeling is from the changes in YOU.

So doesn’t it stand to reason that your environment must change to reflect some form of difference?

The tip for you today is this:

When you return from travel, from an expo, a class, learning, growing, sharing,  do something, anything, even a tiny bit of change, altering of where you live, work and live.

I’ve just come back from my 100-mile horse trek, uncertain what changes I will make as I write this, however I will, because when you change – and I have, everything changes, even if it’s subtle.

How will you use this to your advantage? I’m interested to know, so you can email me if you wish.

The Weekly – How Do You Handle Fear?

You Can’t have Two Emotions At the Same Time

Recently I read or heard that you can’t have two emotions at the same time. That got me thinking…

So, you can’t be angry and grateful at the same time?

Can’t you be happy and depressed at the same time?

In thinking about it, you can’t!

Don’t you love this?

How can you use this knowledge to the best effect?

The best way I’ve figured out, and that I help my coaching clients with is actually the key to any kind of shift or improvement. It’s AWARENESS.

Here’s how it plays out:

You feel yourself getting angry, frustrated, upset…. And as you feel this, it gets stronger and before you know it you’ve lashed out at someone, or said something unkind to a stranger, or stuffed something in your mouth you didn’t want to eat to stop yourself from saying anything. (This has been one of my top tactics in the past, and I have the extra poundage as a result I’m sad to say)

Here’s how awareness can shift this scenario going forward:

You feel yourself getting angry, frustrated, upset…. And as you feel this, you decide to:

Count your blessings – and make a goal to count 10 blessings before you speak

Take a breath and visualize something you love for 20 seconds and that tiny bit of time turns your thoughts to love or admiration.

You clamp your lips shut and turn the corners up into a grin (yes, it may appear at the beginning to look like a grimace but it will turn into a smile if you leave those lips turned up!)
