Why Are You Fighting the Inevitable?

Why Are You Fighting the Inevitable?

When we fight the inevitable, we are delaying our destiny. If something is clearly over and you are clinging to it despite the pain it is causing you, you are doing yourself an injustice. Don’t stick around trying to fix what is clearly broken. Know that you deserve the best and don’t settle for less. ‘Letting go’ is not ‘giving up. Don’t waste your time in mediocrity when you were meant for GREATNESS.

There are so many emotions on the path to greatness and living an authentic life. I think all of us can identify a time where we stayed in a job or a relationship hoping it would just resolve itself over time, and we lived life for a while feeling “stuck.” Think back to that time in your life. Did you feel grateful? Overjoyed? Probably not. Why? Because you were living a life of mediocrity. You weren’t living life wholeheartedly. Your true purpose in life was not being fulfilled. You were most likely afraid to step out of your comfort zone on the path to achieving more until things became so bad that you felt you had no choice. This can be a lifetime for some. Wasted time in that case. For others, maybe the lesson far outweighed the short struggle. Either way…our awareness of these circumstances and our courage to achieve more is a huge feat. Keep Going. Each step may get harder but don’t stop. The view at the top is BEAUTIFUL.

You Reap What You Sow in Life

swarcheck-Promo-empowerment

In life, we all have to deal with some kind of loss or disappointment: the loss of a loved one, loss of a job, loss of a dream, or even the loss of a relationship. It’s tempting to feel like something was taken away from us or something was stolen. You can have one of two attitudes. You can say, “It’s not fair. I don’t understand how this could happen to me?” You can get angry, bitter and pass blame. But what if you take that loss and sow it as a seed? By doing this I mean what if you approach loss with faith, hope, strength, and forgiveness? We believe whatever we tell ourselves. There is no reality – only perception. We trust ourselves…why would we lie inside our own heads? When we find the blessing or lesson to be learned, we can also find the strength we never knew we had and triumph.

The problem with life is there are so many outside forces that can impact the way we see the world and ourselves. Over time, this programming can force us to live our lives according to a false set of beliefs that we’ve held so long we take them as gospel truth. And when we allow past hurts, prejudices, and distorted preconceptions to take root and rule our lives, these negative assumptions can create a self-fulfilling prophecy because we’ll create the results we think we deserve.

The message here is to take a step back and try to look at situations more objectively. How can you do this? One thing you can do is take a break from the nightly news. Think about it, how much negative energy is generated from simply watching the news? The news is one of the biggest influencers of our distorted reality. Over 80% of the stories on the news are depressing, yet most of us choose to fall asleep at night watching these stories. The current state of your mind and your life can improve simply by making small tweaks in your daily habits such as turning off the news before bed and choosing to do something that will generate positive feelings and emotions. Over time, practicing new, positive habits will become second nature to you and will allow for better opportunities and growth. This change will allow you to start looking for the silver lining in life. It will allow you to step back and become more grounded in your thinking. Challenge yourself to stay on high alert for your own filters, unfounded assumptions, and distorted perceptions. Hold yourself accountable to continually test whether your beliefs are grounded in facts and cast away those perceptions that prevent you from realizing your potential in life. You reap what you sow in life; we can sow the seeds of a brighter future by opening our eyes to all the possibilities the world can offer.

Stay True to You With Acts of Self Respect

Stay True to You With Acts of Self Respect

self-respect-by-man

Our first and last love is self-love which is portrayed to the world through actions reflecting self-respect. Clint Eastwood once said, “Respect your efforts, respect yourself. Self-respect leads to self-discipline. When you have both firmly under your belt, that is real power.”

Now that I’m a parent, I often reflect on my own childhood and am so grateful for my parents teaching me self-respect from a very young age. It truly is one of the greatest gifts a parent can give to their children. I now know that self-esteem is built on self-respect, and showing respect is a skill that takes time to learn. When you are able to love yourself, it is much easier to take on challenges and bounce back from any fall. This resilience enables children to embrace opportunities in their path, and high self-esteem becomes their optimistic fuel for exploring the world. The good news is, it’s never too late to learn or hone this skill. That resilience that grounded me through my early life has been tested many times through parenting, especially now that I’m a single parent. Parenting through a divorce is one of the most difficult things I have ever done. I know there are many of you out there who know that all too well. I recently came across an amazing book on this topic entitled, Get the Behavior You Want… Without Being the Parent You Hate by Deborah Gilboa, MD. How many of you can relate to that title?  Parenting challenges us in SO MANY ways on a daily basis, and a major life transition can really make it difficult to push aside feelings of guilt and continue to discipline children through some rocky moments where it would be so much easier to give in. However, by staying the course, we are able to teach children a monumental lesson….A lesson in self-respect that will help them practice discipline in life and live a life they are proud to call their own.

Aligning on Your Path

Aligning on Your Path

walking path

Back in March, I had a wake up call that made me realize I was living my life on autopilot as I was simply trying to keep my head above water following the death of my mom and a divorce. I was so focused on making sure my dad’s and my children’s needs were met that I completely neglected my own. Grace intervened. Sometimes your soul is not hearing or seeing the warning signs that you are veering off your path and a greater force needs to wake you up. My soul was asleep due to my preoccupation with all my urgent tasks to keep my family on their path to their best life despite the hardships we were experiencing. Fortunately, I was open to leaning into all the pain and grief I had been stuffing deep inside of me and I opened the flood gates to let it all out. I cried for what seemed like a solid 24 hours and I felt 10 pounds lighter after releasing it. This was followed by a period of self-reflection, time with myself to listen to my gut feelings, an observation of the consequences I had created in my world every day and the realization that I alone was accountable and responsible for my life’s achievements and mistakes. Sometimes this realization is one people are never willing to accept, leaving them no choice but to live at the effect of life.  However, when you choose to live at the cause of life, you get to decide how the remaining chapters play out. I wanted to find out who I really was and what ignited that spark in me so I could begin to live passionately. I did some values exercises and gained clarity on what I desired in life and I put a plan in place to live according to those values. I hired a coach and she held me accountable. Soon, amazing opportunities started knocking on my door. It felt like a streak of luck and later I realized that the blessings I was receiving on a daily basis were the result of a shift in my thoughts, beliefs, attitude and actions. My conscious choice to align my life with my core needs and desires had put me on a path to realize my unlimited potential for success.

On Intentional Living this week, Steve McClatchy talked about his New York Times Bestselling book, Decide. He talked about two forms of human motivation – gain and prevent pain. Prevent pain tasks simply prompt us to do what we have to do every day…these are the urgent tasks that bubble up each day and often make us feel like our entire day is spent putting out fires. Gain tasks are not urgent. He explained how important it is to put gain tasks on your calendar every day to find fulfillment and live authentic to your core needs. Steve explained a scenario in which you have planned a vacation and you are gearing up for it the week before. Have you ever noticed how the prevent pain tasks are a lot easier to accomplish when you have something to look forward to? When we incorporate tasks that bring us satisfaction we increase our motivation to get the urgent tasks done and feel more energized. With each small step, you will see improvement and build momentum. Incorporating gain tasks allow you to reflect on the values you hold important and take steps to achieve important pursuits like going back to school or writing a book. Moving toward a meaningful goal that will improve your life helps you achieve balance and prevent stress. So when you approach your day today, think about how you want to spend your allotted 24 hours. What tasks can you incorporate today that will help you battle burnout and help you align on your path to live out your dreams? Decide to move your life forward…it’s all up to you!
