Transformation

Uncategorized

“All transformation begins with the courage to explore and examine those beliefs that do not support us. We can then reinterpret how we see ourselves, others, and the world from a new perspective marked by compassion, understanding, and hope. ” [Dr. Joe Rubino)

We’re now one month into the New Year. How are you coming along with your intentions to tweak the areas of your life where you would like to see transformations? If you’re feeling the need to refresh your inspiration or motivation, you might start by taking a look at the following areas …

What beliefs will you let go in order to fully support your deepest aspirations? And remember, you can begin by integrating compassion, understanding and hope into all aspects of your own life:

1) Health
2) Finances
3) Relationships
4) Family
5) Recreation and Fun
6) Spiritual Development

People who wait for a magic wand fail to see that they are the magic wand.

Don’t you just love that quote from Thomas Leonard?

It reminds me of Gandhi’s wise words about becoming the change you wish to see in the world. Now that might involve dropping a few limiting self-beliefs and redefining who you are. Remember, your past does not determine your present, neither your future.

Are you defining yourself in ways that are limitations  or in ways that are enhancements? How do you define yourself? Who are you? If you were to goggle your name, what definition of you would you find? How about writing it down now?

Hmmmm, makes me think of that other wonderful quote about how we help no one by playing small! So, let’s think, feel and act as that magic wand today, and experience the difference!

 

Transforming small tasks

Uncategorized

Helen Keller has been a pillar of inspiration for several generations of people, including yours truly. She was an American author, political activist and lecturer, and the first deafblind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. Her life story has become known worldwide through film and stage productions of The Miracle Worker. Keller’s teacher, Anne Sullivan, believed in her student’s potential and helped her to break through the isolation imposed by a near complete lack of language. Helen blossomed as she learned to communicate, and her influence became widespread. Despite this, nothing was too menial or unimportant for her; instead, she found a way to make each undertaking meaningful. She wrote:

“I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.”

How do you transform your small daily tasks into something of value?

The choice is yours!

Have you ever been passionately moved by the inspirational words of a great speech?

Martin Luthur King, Jr, ‘I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.’

The power of words have the capacity to move entire nations, not just ourselves!

So, have you ever thought about the power of your own words to either empower or depress yourself?

Do the words you use to talk to yourself put you into a resourceful state …..or the opposite?

Uplift you or pull you down?

Do you realise that  you have the power to change your experience of an event IMMEDIATELY by the choice of words that you use when talking to yourself.

Inspire yourself or depress yourself – the choice is yours, use it wisely!
