How to get back in touch with the source of your motivation

The video covers…

  • How being in touch with what you long for sets the stage for everything you do (or don’t do) in your life.
  • How being in touch with what you long for is the source of motivation to really “go for it” in your life.
  • The deal we make with ourselves that kills motivation and puts off going for what you want til a mythical “later,” and
  • The simple “first step” you can take, right now, to get your motivation back.

The fundamental mistake that causes you to lose heart, and how you can avoid it

Why can’t you just visualize a crosswalk, then step into traffic?

The fundamental mistake that causes you to lose heart, and how you can avoid it

There’s a Fundamental Mistake at the core of every loss of heart:

Believing that if you can’t see a way towards achieving your heart’s longing, it means that there is no way forward.

There you are, pursuing your heart’s longing. Perhaps it’s to find a great job, or to build a great relationship, or to lose weight and develop stellar fitness.

You’re buzzing along, but then something gets in the way.

There's no way forwardWhat “gets in the way” will vary. It may be that you’ve tried everything you can think of, but still can’t seem to land the job you want. Or it may be that you’ve tried “spicing things up” with your spouse, but your spouse hasn’t responded. Or it may be you tried dieting, but diet food all tastes like sawdust and is flat-out boring to eat.

You hit a problem that is in the way, and you can’t seem to get past it.

In the face of that problem, you make the Fundamental Mistake: On a subconscious level you conclude, “I’ve tried everything, and nothing works to bring me closer to achieving my heart’s longing. Therefore, there must not be a way forward.

And that’s the moment you lose heart. [Read more…]

Maybe you shouldn’t jump off a cliff

Have you ever thought about taking a risk in your life, only to have a well-meaning friend urge you to do it, because

“In life, you should jump off the cliff. You’ll find either you’ll be caught, or you’ll grow wings and fly.”

If you want to take a risk, this saying says, you should take it. Life will support you. Everything will be fine.

It’s a new-agey greeting-card saying that’s been around for a long time.

And I think it’s just bunk.

Sure, when you jump off that cliff you might be caught. And you might grow wings and fly.

But this bit of advice leaves out another, much more likely option:

You might hit the ground.

And you might hit it pretty hard. [Read more…]

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). 😉

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…]

This call — called “Healing for Achievement: How to use healing work to accomplish things that seem impossible” — 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,

– Examples 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.)
