Identifying Talents and Skills

May 31, 2016 by

Talents and Skills   All of us have a magnitude of talents and skills, but that does not mean that we are supposed to use them all to follow our purpose.  In fact, just because we are good at something does not mean that we have to do it or that it will bring us joy.  For example, I may be good at data entry (truly I am not) but does that mean that it is part of my purpose? Well, it would depend on whether it made me feel alive while entering all that data and filled me up with joy!  Clearly for me that is not the case.  But there is more to purpose than joy.  Maybe that skill was or will be useful at some point that will help me along...

Personality: The Path To The Authentic YOU!...

May 24, 2016 by

  What Does Your Personality Say About You?   The whole science of personalities intrigues me because so much has been written about it.  Personality is the unique combination of patterns that influence behavior, thought, motivation, and emotion in a human being.  Personality is a person’s unique behavioral and cognitive patterns; OR, a person’s unique consistent pattern of thinking, feeling, and acting. In everyday terms, personality is who you are inside and how you react to certain stimuli.  It helps us to understand what motivates you, your feelings and thoughts. Personalities are said to be defined by “types”.  When you know your personality type it can help glean important insight and understanding into who you are authentically.  Even more importantly, when you understand your personality type you get that much closer to gaining clarity...

  Searching for Authenticity?     Have you arrived at this place in your life where you wonder whether you are who you were meant to be or simply who others think you should be?

Everything Happens for a Reason...

May 10, 2016 by

    Everything happens for a reason…     Whether that means our lives are predestined or that we create blessings out of curses, at some point our curiosity will lead us to this exact place…a place where discovering how to excavate our deepest calling in life and live our greater purpose becomes an urgent nudge that can no longer be ignored.      Purpose is not defined…Purpose is discovered. Your purpose has never been lost to you. Your purpose is unique to you and your journey and therefore no one can define your purpose for you.  This is an inside job in which active participation, reflection and introspection is required so that you may answer the question…What is my purpose in life?   Everything happens for a reason…this is a phrase we hear...

In Search of Your Inner Child

May 4, 2016 by

The Inner Child There has been a lot of content written over a span of years about the inner child.  No doubt you’ve heard or read some before, but I let’s touch on the subject further.  Everyone has an inner child.  The inner child represents life lessons either learned or challenges you’ve endured or been subjected to as a child.  Often time those challenges are unresolved and can linger on through our growth into adulthood.  Sometimes the inner child resides in a place where dreams are held waiting to be fulfilled.  Getting in touch with your inner child shines a bright light into those darkened corners and when done strategically…you just might stumble upon your “Authentic Self.”  At any rate…this journey to the village of the inner child is truly a worth – while...

Authenticity: Essential Tool for Personal Growth...

Apr 26, 2016 by

  Personal Growth…   I read some place awhile back that personal growth is not about adding to the person you are, but more about peeling and stripping away the layers you’ve added over the years. These layers cover and conceal your authentic self.    I completely agree.   Infants Just Know…   As infants we’re in complete touch with the person we are…our needs and feelings. As we grow into children, we naturally move toward the things that are fun or stir up our curiosity. However, as we get older, we’re taught that certain aspects of our behavior are unacceptable and if we want to be loved, we’re going to have to fall into step. To fit in we give up our hopes and dreams. We become mirror images of the people in our...

Are You Asking The Right Questions?...

Apr 19, 2016 by

  Does this sound familiar?  You push yourselves into confusion and despair…and as a result you’re left with the difficult task of figuring a way out of the hot mess you’ve created.  I know it resonated with me.  I am just being honest.  Want to know why?  It’s because we’re asking ourselves the wrong questions. The reason you’re not achieving your goals, don’t feel fulfilled and aren’t living your best life is because you haven’t asked yourself the right question.  That’s right, YOU!  There’s nobody else to ask that could answer truthfully better than you. What are the right questions?  I’m glad you asked!       What motivates you in life right now?   Why do you get up in the morning? What is worth getting out of bed for? Is it the...
