Directing the Movie Called "My Life"
As a coach, I've spent a significant amount of time supporting hundreds of people in their quest to change or grow in some part of their life where that change has eluded them. Of course, I've also been focused on refining this skill/capacity in generating my own dream life for over a decade. I wouldn't be much use as a coach if I wasn't walking the talk, right?!
But there's an interesting phenomenon. While there are many (nearly infinite) internal paths, external frameworks and thought leaders out there that promise us change and more of what we want, I've been interested in why some of them "stick" longer for me and some of them fade quickly in their usefulness. Have you noticed this in your own life?
Some of it, I've learned, is down to life stage and/or changing priorities for growth vs. other pursuits. In other words, sometimes we don't really want to learn and grow... we might rather have some adventures or simply relax for a while. But sometimes we really do want to grow and change and we are frustrated that we can't seem to make steady, sustainable progress, or, better yet, experience a dramatic breakthrough.
I've learned that there is something that's going on, operating mostly in the background of our conscious mind. It's a deceptively simple, yet profound, tool that anyone can use. And, I've been practicing and applying it in my own life for years. The experience of using it is something akin to becoming the director of my "life movie" rather than being an audience member. I invite you to find out more about it later in February. I typically offer this information in this way only a couple of times a year. So, if this article speaks to you, consider this your invitation to follow the white rabbit down the hole and begin a new journey of exploration into what makes you tick!
And, if you're busy having adventures or relaxing... enjoy! :)

If you're not yet schooled on the influence the foods you eat have on your body's constant fight to maintain the optimal pH for proper functioning, I invite you to read two doctors duking it out over how important it is.

Having just spent some time in Leicester, England, the birthplace of the philosopher James Allen AND having the joy of a newly sprouted garden, I'm inspired to share this quote:
"A man's mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind... A man sooner or later discovers that he is the master-gardener of his soul, the director of his life."
