The Scientific Secret to Happiness

I happened upon this amazing TED talk that really helped me to understand what so many profess (without really understanding why) is a key to happiness.  If you are an inquisitive person and/or have a penchant for asking why before jumping into something with both feet (like me), then I suggest Continue reading

Are you Getting it?

I recently came across an article about employee engagement in the US, and it referred to a recent Gallup Poll survey that found that 71% of employees are NOT ENGAGED in their jobs.

At first I was shocked by this figure but then I got to thinking about people that I know and how they feel about their work and I have to say that it sort of rings true. Continue reading

Day 1 – Purpose Driven Life Journey Discussion

purpose driven life bookI would like to share the 40 day Purpose Driven Life journey with you so we can share our thoughts and enlighten ourselves by learning from each other.

Let me preface this discussion by stipulating that although Rick Warren’s book is geared toward Christians, I don’t want to limit this discussion to religious beliefs.

We are all in search of our purpose in life.  I want to use the chapters laid out in Pastor Rick Warren’s book as merely a starting point to see where this discussion leads so please, no judgement on the beliefs of others who post comments.

Let’s see where this goes! Continue reading

So if you haven’t heard, we packed up and moved to Morocco last summer.

Settling in was quite an experience and still every day there is something new to deal with but here is the really cool thing; Continue reading

Overcoming Limiting Beliefs

Well, I have to admit I was a cautious skeptic when it came to the Law of Attraction and how it related to limiting beliefs.   But, I was also curious, so I bought books and watched videos.

It fascinated me how so many people could say the Law of Attraction was true – so I just kept researching.   But, it wasn’t until I listened to a speech by ViSalus Sciences co-founder Blake Mallen that it just seemed to click for me.   Blake actually explained the science behind perceptions, beliefs, and reality.

So a couple of weeks ago, I had set a goal for myself to reach Regional Director and earn my BMW bonus.  I realized that I was preventing myself from achieving it because of my own limiting beliefs.  I was restricting my own reality because of it…So I shifted my beliefs and it WORKED!

After realizing and overcoming my limiting beliefs, I was so convinced I was going to achieve my goal that I acted and carried on as though it was a certainty.

But after realizing what they were and overcoming my limiting beliefs, I was so convinced I was going to achieve my goal that I acted and carried on as though it was a certainty.  I found this shift increased my confidence – obstacles I previously found intimidating seemed to dissolve, and opportunities that would help me get to my goal seemed appear out of nowhere…..I even pre-ordered my reward gift because of my new found certainty.

So I am no longer a skeptic.  I have found a new power that I intend to explore even more.

Here is the recording of Blake Mallen’s “Living off the Script” speech. I highly recommend your listen to the entire thing.

Please let me hear about your own experiences with limiting beliefs…
