Make a Difference in the World: Be the Punchline

Once again, a perspective shift is where it’s at. For example:

  • Your client wants to ask for a raise but dreads having to “sell” his manager on the idea. What if he could endorse the idea of educating his boss about the situation instead?
  • You’re worried your client is disengaged because she’s been very quiet of late. What if it was because she found the material so valuable, she started taking notes?

“You’ve been set up. Again.” Be the punchline.

How could you or your clients benefit from a fresh perspective?

The Best Holiday Gift: A Life Well-Lived

Start the New Year right, by making a few changes today.

While I love lists, I don’t promote very many because each one usually has a few points I can’t get behind. This list, however, gets my vote from top to bottom. Why? Because:

  1. it’s a comprehensive list of insights that will rock your world, whether you’re 17 or 97
  2. even if you only embrace one or two tips, your life will change for the better: more freedom, more peace, more love, more success
  3. you can use this list to launch the New Year by sharing it with your clients and asking them which ones they most want to master
  4. I couldn’t have written this list any better myself

Enjoy! And as always, thank you for your continued support – we wish you a very happy holiday season!

Wash Away Stress with Gratitude

What better topic to bring into focus during this busy month than gratitude? In an article from Pathways to Wellness, author James O’Dea writes:

Your body loves gratitude! Not a superficial “oh gee, thanks” but a deep, heart-connected appreciation that carries love and acceptance from a place of higher consciousness and well-being.

Your body loves it because it washes away the biochemistry of stress and insufficiency and replaces it with the alchemy of flow and emotional warmth. … In the field of appreciation, we create a healing and reviving antidote to psycho-toxins such as “I don’t have time,” “I don’t have enough,” or “I am drained.” (Full article here)

Where can you boost the role of gratitude, both in yourself and your clients?
