The truest mark of a seeker is the ability to approach life with the open-mindedness of a child. Ask new questions to old answers.
Mindfulness is often equated to relaxation, peace, and serenity. Tranquility abounds when you have let go of your own inner conflict. The mind is easier to quiet. Meditation becomes easier to practice.
Unlike people who are satisfied with one area of interest, you’re genetically wired to pursue many areas, and that’s exactly what you’ve been trying to do. But because your behavior is unfamiliar – even unsettling – to the people around you, you’ve been taught that you’re doing something wrong and told you must decide on one path.”
It's Transformation Tuesday and we're going to address why you adamantly, like a stubborn jackass who is settling in for an epic battle of wills, refuse to ask for help working through your personal issues.
“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
It’s no coincidence that I’ve found myself at a place in my life where I need to make some changes. Funny how easy it is to become complacent, even with our highest priorities. I didn’t just wake up one morning rejecting my former healthy habits – no, I let them slip away from me one by one.
Big breath in, as I continue working up to start juicing as a catalyst for improving my physical well-being.
In less than a week, my life may drastically change as I start juicing. Hypocrite : a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings" As much as I hate to admit it, I am currently a hypocrite.
I teach and preach holistic wellness. I coach other people on the necessity of a balanced life – the mind-body-soul connection. The majority of people I work with pay more attention to their bodies and mind, and need my help to address spiritual and emotional aspects. In the last year or so, you could find me at the opposite end of the spectrum. Sure, my emotional and spiritual health is sound, but I have paid very little attention to my physical body.
I’m finally ready to make the commitment to change, but I don’t want to jump in half-cocked. I’ve been diligently reading, prepping, getting ready to commit. I’m seriously contemplating a 5 day vegetable juicing cleanse, followed up by a 21 day sugar detox.

Here are 60 inconvenient truths about personal development to help you stay on track.
The acquisition of knowledge doesn’t mean you’re growing. Growing happens when what you know changes how you live. You can’t have good ideas unless you’re willing to generate a lot of bad ones. A good idea without action is nothing at all. It’s not so much about finding opportunities as it is about creating them. 10% of our lives is decided by uncontrollable circumstances. 90% is decided by how we react to those circumstances. What we don’t start today won’t be finished by tomorrow. If you’re waiting for the perfect conditions, ideas or plans to get started, you’ll never achieve anything.
Before you know it you’ll be asking, “How did it get so late so soon?” So take time to figure yourself out. Take time to realize what you want and need. Take time to take risks. Take time to love, laugh, cry, learn, and forgive. Life is shorter than it often seems.
Do you find when the going gets rough that you are simply enduring? Are you focused solely on getting through, just waiting for the end of the current trials? Or do you manage to thrive under less than ideal circumstances? Do you find a way to see the silver lining in every cloud, garner wisdom from every heartache, and recognize that you had a choice in your attitude all along?

"Surthrivers" are people who take what life hands them and not only deal with the situation, but find a way to thrive -- to grow stronger -- because of what they have survived. Surthrivers make their mark in the world by combining a realistic, hopeful attitude with one of graciousness and wonder. Things don't always go their way, but they play whatever hand they are given. Sometimes they win, sometimes they lose. Their joy is derived from simply playing the game.
