    POWER PAST STRESS

    POWER PAST STRESS

    Everyone always advises taking the “long view” of life—that today’s troubles aren’t forever.  There’s truth to that.  But for people under stress, it can be unwieldy to think too far in the future.  A focus on today—in fact, on this very minute—can unlock reservoirs of personal power.  Can you breathe for a minute?  Can you take a walk for 15 minutes?  Can you work for an hour?  Can you commit to the journey through one day, come what may?  Of course you can.

    They Want to Cut Your Vocal Cords

    They Want to Cut Your Vocal Cords

    What do you really GET for speaking your mind, even if so many people in America want to shut you up?  You get stronger.  You get a spine of steel.  Everything that works against resistance works better, in the end.  So, don’t be muzzled or (as Anthony Fauci did with dogs) have your vocal cords cut.  Say what you think.  Mean what you say.  And don’t back down for anyone.

    You Need Never Be Without Personal Power

    You Need Never Be Without Personal Power

    Viktor Frankl, the great psychiatrist imprisoned for years in a Nazi death camp, gave us the tools to unlock the God-given, indestructible reservoir of power inside each and every one of us.  It can be tapped in the face of any amount of pain—if you know it’s there and resolve to use it.

    Remember Your Metaphorical Cup of Coffee

    Remember Your Metaphorical Cup of Coffee

    Sometimes it really helps to remember that the creative and economic stresses that those of us who are fortunate enough to be able to pay our bills can still feel, along with the sense of impending doom that  visits us despite relative peace and prosperity, are created by us.  We conjure them up.  It’s almost as though we suspend disbelief and generate a false narrative of our lives that makes it seem life threatening if we don’t climb the next rung on the ladder of success or meet rather artificial deadlines or milestones.
    Sometimes, we should just sit back, realize there are no holes in our jeans (unless we bought them that way or like them that way), remember that we won’t be at a loss to buy our next $4 cup of coffee and let our lives and hearts and minds breathe a bit.

    Climbing to Success Comes from the Core

    Climbing to Success Comes from the Core

    While the ego climber might think that the ascent to wealth or fame or admiration or a remarkable physique is indistinguishable from the growth and achievement that comes from expressing one’s true self and true goals, that isn’t so. There’s something infinitely exhausting about ego climbing.  That’s because the peak of the mountain keeps receding as you approach it.  You can’t ever get that feeling of having reached the pinnacle because that kind of celebration and sense of SELF-satisfaction are reserved for those who climb to meet themSELVES at the top of the mountain, not to escape themselves.
