“A low self-love in the parent desires that his child should repeat his character and fortune; an expectation which the child, if justice is done him, will nobly disappoint. By working on the theory that this resemblance exists, we shall do what in us lies to defeat his proper promise and produce the ordinary and mediocre. I suffer whenever I see that common sight of a parent or senior imposing his opinion and way of thinking and being on a young ...
Who’s driving your car?
You know how it works, you are a passenger in the car beside your spouse, family member or friend and you give unsolicited directions. “Turn at the next corner, it’s shorter.” “How come you don’t change lanes?” “Slow down! (to a crawl) – I am nervous when you ( not me) drive.”
It wasn’t that many months ago that it occurred to me after the words slipped quickly from my lips, that I may be not only trying to ...
First off, I felt my quote was a lame post with no blog added. Not a bad quote just lazy on my part so decided to write something that the quote triggered in me, discernment.
How can we be more aware of this mismatch of standards ahead of time or deal with it when it happens? Being discerning is pretty important in business. We often do not have choices who work with or for. Deciding how important your sense of well being ...
Quote; “A great source of stress in personal and professional relationships is the mismatch of standards you aren’t aware of when you make the initial agreements. Unfortunately you usually only recognize your own implicit expectations of appropriate behavior when they are violated.” David Allen in David Allen’s Productivity Principles
A client of mine suggested that some people might like to peek into the lives of others being coached. You may want to see how coaching works, like being a welcome voyeur. An eavesdropper! Clients that have offered to let me write about their sessions in this blog. You may not have heard of Life Coaching or have but don’t get it. Or maybe you do but aren’t sure if it’s for you or a ton of other reasons, you do ...
My Commitment to Myself as the Woman I was Meant to Be
I have stepped over the line.
The decision has been made.
I won’t look back, slow down, back away or be still.
My past is redeemed.
My present makes sense.
My future is secure.
I am finished and done with low living, colourless dreams, and small vision, cheap living and dwarfed goals.
I will work daily towards my goals. I will write daily for my spirit.
I now live by Faith, lean on my Higher Power through prayer, ...
I read somewhere that “habits are like children, fighting with them is pointless. What they need first and foremost is love and acceptance.”
I don’t know about you but when I thought about 10 daily habits, I thought about flossing my teeth, running or maybe even dusting. (Oh, how I hate dusting- and running and flossing for that matter.) I am talking about the kind of habits that feed you. Give you energy and make you feel fantastic!
Now maybe my things don’t ...
I am having a blast at #impact2013 ! What an amazing group of folks I have met so far!
Curiously, he looked off the dock at the lake in Hudson, Quebec. A bit later I noticed him looking into the in ground pool. Every time he would take a small step forward, he would take an even greater one back. It was as if he was wondering if he could walk on it- but wasn’t sure. Though this happened repeatedly throughout the day, he never did jump into the water.

I have done many things and not done even more. Some of them were things I “tried” then failed. Maybe I was not invested, or even believed that I would fail before I started. But the things that were successful, were all worthwhile because I did them. They didn’t have to be “change the world” things, just maybe “change me” a little things. Like losing weight, or reading something positive daily or even writing a blog. Stuff I did then forgot ...
