"My childhood was very difficult. My dad died in my arms when I was 14 and my mother was physically and emotionally abusive. We were poor, dysfunctional and quite unhappy. Maybe it was my own struggles that led me to know when I was 12 that what I wanted to do in life was to help other people suffer less and laugh more.”Lindsay Kenny

"The reputation you have with yourself – your self-esteem – is the single most important factor for a fulfilling life." - Psychologist Nathaniel Branden. What is self-esteem and how can we encourage a healthy self-concept and positive self-regard?
“Collectively, we're only manifesting a tiny fraction of our potential in the areas of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health and well-being. When someone begins to manifest thriving health on each of these levels, they naturally contribute to the creation of a healthier world on all levels as well. Therefore, this is another one of those ‘acupuncture points’ where you can have a major positive impact, while getting paid.”

"At Google, bright young engineers have been sitting in front of screens for most of their lives. They are outer focused. Data driven. They all had the education and intelligence to get to Google. But they didn’t have very well developed self-awareness or awareness of others. I developed a course for them, a practical, real-world meditation the employees can take with them wherever they go."

A psychologist declares fear is not a disease, and many actors and other artists embrace fear in their work, but anxiety can interfere with creativity.
Ben Stiller stars in and directs a movie version of Thurber’s famous story “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.” He comments about his own choices as well as the story: “At a certain point, you want to be taking chances. That’s when you’re having the most vital experiences.”
I’ve recently read Jungian analyst James Hollis’s book, The Middle Passage: From Misery to Meaning in Midlife. It is one of the best books on this developmental phase, and its many opportunities, that I’ve read. The author says that childhood lasts until around age 12, the first adulthood from around ages 12 to 40, and the second adulthood–if a person chooses to progresss–from around age 40 to old age.
Many people never pass from childhood to adulthood developmentally, but are overgrown children, and many people never pass from the first adulthood into the second, and thus have unlived lives.
Hollis writes that the middle passage presents us with the opportunity to reexamine our lives and to ask, “Who am I apart from my history and the roles I have played?” It is an occasion for redefining and reorienting the... (click title for more)
People who feel like impostors will often "play it safe" by not even attempting a creative project, out of a self-limiting belief of being incompetent.
Actor Emma Watson commented about its impact for her:
“It’s almost like the better I do, the more my feeling of inadequacy actually increases, because I’m just going, Any moment, someone’s going to find out I’m a total fraud, and that I don’t deserve any of what I’ve achieved.
"Too often we lose sight of the fact that vulnerability is the birthplace of joy, belonging, creativity, authenticity, and love.”
Dr. Brené Brown has interviewed hundreds of people as part of an ongoing study of vulnerability.
“The research shows that we try to ward disappointment with a shield of cynicism, disarm shame by numbing ourselves against joy, and circumvent grief by shutting off our willingness to love,” explains Dr. Brown.
“When we become aware of these patterns, she teaches, we begin to become conscious of how much we sacrifice in the name of self-defense—and how much richer our lives become when we open ourselves to vulnerability."
How much of our lives are impacted by our beliefs? "All beliefs are limiting...You are what you believe you are (for you) and anything else is absolutely not true (not possible). Your beliefs about people and life also create boxes; what’s outside the boxes literally does not exist for you...It is more important to live as the creator of your life (as the sculptor) rather than as any specific creation." - Morty Lefkoe
Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) or Tapping is "a healing modality that combines ancient Chinese acupressure and modern psychology."
Cheryl Richardson on the free Tapping World Summit that begins on Monday, February 24, 2014. "While flying with my husband, Michael, we hit rough weather and I began to panic. Because he was trained in the tapping technique early on, Michael knew how to quickly turn my panic into peace. Within fifteen minutes I was riding the rough air without fear. None. And I've continued to fly with ease ever since. That's when I decided to learn tapping myself. I've used it with family, friends, and workshop participants and it's the easiest, quickest method I've seen for dealing with all kinds of issues...like physical pain, weight loss, anxiety, healing your body, overcoming emotional obstacles, and much more."

There are things you don’t know that you don’t know. And that fact is keeping you from having the best life you could possibly have.
"Knowing that you don't know is the first and most essential step to knowing, you know?" - Claire Keen (Michelle Williams) in "Synecdoche, New York" (a line perhaps inspired by Mark Twain.) Are you aware of what you think you know that "just ain't so"?
"Being an artist means: not numbering and counting, but ripening like a tree." Rainer Maria Rilke
Tama Kieves includes this quote in her book, and adds: “Can you really know what the perfect timeline is for forging one extraordinary life? How long does it take to heal inside, learn to breathe large, and meet the world unconditionally with love, conviction, and talents you didn’t even know you had?"
