Everything is Personal

There’s a lot of talk out there about how taking the things of life personally is a bad idea.

And it is.

But we do take things personally, because we are people… and simply deciding to stop taking things personally isn’t going to work.

Let me explain…

You’re a person. I’m a person. Anyone who’s reading this is a person (or perhaps an exceptionally smart dog). ūüėČ

We’re persons, so we have personal relationships. That’s the kind of relationship persons have.

We’re not robots, having robotic relationships. If we were, perhaps we’d be able to just flip a switch and not take things personally any more.

But, like I said, we are persons.

And as a person, not only do you make it personal when things happen to you — you do it in an instant, far too quickly to stop before it happens.

So the question is NOT “how do I stop taking things personally?”

The question is, “How do I handle it when taking things personally is messing up my life?” [Read more…]

Come with me as I take on an “impossible” weight loss challenge

A couple of weeks ago, on this website’s launch celebration call, I announced the next “impossible” challenge I’m going to take on.

I announced I was going to do something that a lot of people want to do, but aren’t able to accomplish.

I announced I would lose the excess 50 pounds I’ve been carrying around…

  • Without using self-discipline,
  • Without beating up on myself, and
  • Without suffering,

… And that I would blog every step of my journey. [Read more…]

This call — called “Healing for Achievement: How to use healing work to accomplish¬†things that seem impossible‚ÄĚ —¬†is in celebration of my launching this new website.

If you feel so moved, please leave a comment below and say “hi” — I think that’d be a great way to get some energy going on this brand-new website.

After I edited down the Q&A parts, the call came in at just under 27 minutes.

I think that 27 minutes will be of interest to anyone who wants to be able to use healing tools to accomplish real things in the real world.

On this call we covered…

– What to do when your inner dials of “trying harder” and “being smarter” are turned up to “10,” and it’s still not enough to reach¬†your goal,

– How to be transformed into the “next better version” of you, who can accomplish the goals that seem impossible for the “current version” of you,

– How “achievement and transformation walk hand in hand”…¬†and why trying to achieve, without emotional transformation,¬†is next to impossible,

РExamples of the transformations and actual miracles that occurred as I created my new website,

– Steps you can take to turn your impossible binds into “doorways” to transformation,

– A darn good Rumi quote,

And I also announced my next daring project: I’m going to lose the 50¬†pounds I have to lose — and that I’ve persistently shown I’m not capable of losing — by using NO willpower, NO beating myself up, NO suffering, and the tools I talk about on this call. (I’ll also be blogging every step of that journey for those who want to follow along.)
