Weekly – What Color Are Your Thoughts?

Ready to do some colouring?

It’s February and there’s a lot of white around the nation. Skies are grey, the trees are bare and sometimes this affects our mood – my mood less since I paint my days in colour.

My mom used to say that it wasn’t smart to walk around with rose-coloured glasses on which I am now realizing isn’t completely true. Especially since I ran across this quote from Marcus Aurelius…

“Your mind will be like its habitual thoughts; for the soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts.”

Mostly I read about how to think positive, or think possibilities and I do and agree, but what about colour? What about using this simple visual tool to see your day differently, your environment and the people around you?

What would it feel like to bath someone you are gazing at in a soft amber glow? What if you looked at every paper you touched today with the colour of its importance rather than a stack of get-to-when-I can papers?

Recently I learned the importance of light when dealing with so much screen time and an associate showed me how to set my phone and computer up so that my screens change during different times of the day – more sunrise and sunset colours so that my body and eyes are not fatigued with the blue screen.

The point is that a change in colour and light can alter and improve your health.

So why not extend that to everything you see today?

Put a little colour on some normal or mundane things and see who life gets richer, better and more brilliant!

Oh – and change your screen colours – it’s cool and will help your health!

Weekly – Mastery of The Top Thing is Tops!

Are You a Master of Self Mastery?

This whole month our focus has been on internal work – from self-awareness belief commitment and now self-mastery – my themes revolve around that internal compass.

Note: Research from British biologist Robin Baker has actually confirmed humans have some internal sense of direction – so how does that apply to self-mastery?

It means that seeking to know yourself, understand yourself and what motivates you, fuels you and also what causes you to get off track are within your power to determine.

Is that the best news you’ve ever heard?

Okay – the caveat is that it’s a journey and can take a lifetime but hey, what else are we doing, right?

So here’s my weekly question for you: What are you doing to know yourself?

Here are a couple of helpful actions you can take:

Be silent – let your thoughts lead you places they haven’t

Meditate – stop your thoughts and see what happens from that

Ask deep questions – and ones that lead to answers – (more on that in another post)

This year I am asking better questions – spending more time in silence and will continue to practice meditation (though this is a new ability I am not well established in yet!)

Let me know how you are seeking self-mastery. I love to learn from you!

Weekly – Fear for the New Year?

What Holds You Back?

We’re in the third week of 2019 already – how are you doing with your goals? Any trepidation? Any huge successes so far?

Today my gift for you is this quote:

The loose definition of fear is:  an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain or a threat

In business, one fear is not being able to earn more than you spend, or how you will keep or manage those you bring on or have a catastrophe which would derail you. Note, these are worries that sometimes keep people up at night.

Are they also fear? They fit the unpleasant emotion part – and they fall easily into the belief part. There is an old adage (I think from the Bible) that what we fear will befall us.

So where does commitment come in? According to Sammy Davis Jr. – the other choice is commitment.  Do you agree?

For me, when I am committed (at all costs) to make something happen, get something written (hello this post) or to deliver on what I promise, it feels like a movement, like action, like motion and usually, there is no fear.

The reason I am taking action, doing the movement, writing the words is that I committed to doing it even if I’m afraid (unpleasant emotion-  Danger to my reputation) I do it despite those feelings.

So I’m on the side of Sammy here – and I freely admit that there are a few other emotions, choices I dance around with, however, when I commit – especially to a client or you my reader taking action is far easier.

How do you use commitment?

I would love to hear your thoughts! You can email me at Shawna@ShawnaSchuh.com

Weekly – Do You Have Unbelievable Beliefs?

How Might Your Beliefs Benefit You More?

This quote startled me:

“A belief is only a thought I keep thinking.”  ~Abraham Hicks

Really? It’s what I’m THINKING rather than what is true or what is written in a book, or what my parents insisted?

Right now you may be thinking, “That’s not right, there are things that are true and things that aren’t true!” 

And then we go down the slippery slopes we’re living in with people born one gender and identifying as another – what’s true there? Is it the body or the mind?

So let’s review this notion that I found so startling and which I think has merit.

A belief is only a thought I keep thinking –

This begs the question – What am I thinking?

And even more important to ask:

Is what I’m thinking helping me?

Is what I’m letting into my mind of benefit or detriment?

These two questions can make a drastic difference in your life, your results and potentially your happiness.

Today, take a look into your mind and think about your beliefs – and if they are only thoughts we keep thinking – are you thinking well?

Because you can change your thoughts you know!

Weekly – The Most Important Person in 2019

How Self Aware Are You?

Been thinking a lot about leaders lately. I’m working with them daily, reading about them all the time and having to make leadership decisions continually myself and everything is leading me to ask myself, and now you: How self-aware am I and are you?

The reason this is an important question to kick off this year is that being self-aware can give you and me a competitive advantage.

First, because awareness is key to any kind of improvement- an expression I use often with my coaching clients is: Awareness is first.

If you are not even aware of a habit or phrase or thought process you have, you have no idea how it may be hurting you and you have no idea you can alter and improve your situation. Basically, you are unaware. This is one of the main reasons professionals seek coaching.

Becoming AWARE – about your own thinking, how you are communicating and behaving will pave the way to improvement. It will make YOU the most important person in 2019 to you.

How do you become more aware which lends itself to self-awareness?

Ask yourself some good questions!

Here’s the one to start with this week:

Who do I want to be in this situation?

Anything you do – you can ask yourself this question before doing it.

Engaging with your own habits or poor choices:

ASK: Who do I want to be in this situation? Usually it’s not who you are being so then you can shift!

Someone treating you poorly in a restaurant or the road:

ASK: Who do I want to be in this situation? Forgiving and kind or a jack ass?

Calling a prospect:

ASK: Who do I want to be in this situation? Pushy and relentless or calling with a heart to understand and serve?

You get the idea.

When you ask yourself this question: Who do I want to be in this situation? You go deeper than others, you get to shift prior to mistakes and mostly you come to realize you create who you are with every decision you make.

It’s a brand new year so you can create an ever better version of you! You can do it and awareness is key, so start there!

Blessings, Shawna
