You might be surprised to learn that most of the modern self help ideas that we practice today aren’t new ideas at all. Every modern book that you’ve read on self help, including The Secret, The Power of Positive Thinking by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale and so many others, came from ancient ideas.
Not only are many “modern” self help methods not so modern, but many ancient practices are experiencing a Renaissance in contemporary society, although often in a watered-down form. Did I just say that? Yes, I did. There’s nothing wrong with something being watered down if we can recognize the we’re only eating a bite of the meal and not the entire meal itself, as in the case of most yoga courses, qigong, and a f...Read more

5 Tips for Mental and Emotional Health
In this post I’m going to be talking about 5 tips for mental and emotional health. For some reason, in today’s society, we equate being healthy only with being physically healthy. Being healthy only means getting the right amount of exercise along with eating the right foods, according to most people. This might be the case with our physical body, but health includes far more than that. Everyone has emotions, and everyone has a mind, and both affect everything about our physical health. In fact, we cannot separate physical, mental and emotional health and well-being from each other; to do so is a mistake.
We exist as a whole person who inhabits a physical body with feelings, thoughts, pas...Read more

Innovation & Overcoming Obstacles – It just happened today!
Here’s my story of overcoming obstacles. Yesterday I had worked for several hours on two blog posts. One was on writing articles for a marketing blog and website that I have, and the other was on self-esteem and how to improve it. Both articles had a unique twist to them. For example, in the self-esteem article, I wrote about the dangers of an inflated self-esteem and the need for esteem to be based on competence and real word results. They were both coming along nicely, and I had worked on them for about five hours. Then, I noticed my computer seemed to be freezing up. A spinning wheel appeared where my cursor was.
I started to feel a bit anxious, as the cursor sto...Read more

Let me tell you a story. One day I was thinking about how to reach more people. How to engage more people in conversations about change and overcoming obstacles. You see, I’m a big believer in the capacity of the human spirit to overcome obstacles and to achieve what can, at times, seem impossible. History is full of examples of people who have come from humble beginnings, risen above poverty, horrible circumstances, or impossible odds to achieve greatness. Look at Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Gandhi, Winston Churchill, Martin Luther King Jr. and so many others.
So, I was pondering how to help people to see the seed of greatness that they have inside. The part of themselves that they may have abandoned, let go of, or forgotten about; d...Read more

It’s pretty amazing really, the capacity we have to create our future, to make our dreams reality. Think about it for a minute. What have you created in your life? Ideas you’ve had that started in your head, and you translated into reality. It could be as simple as thinking, “I’ll bake a cake.” and then presto a cake appeared. In my case, it meant that I went to the store and bought a cake, but the idea is still the same. Think about this with something bigger. You thought about buying a house, and you made that happen, getting a car, a job, or creating some other outcome in your life. It’s amazing really, our capacity to think about things and then act on them and make them real when we choose to. That’s one of the incredible gifts of being alive and being human. We have the power to dream, to think, to plan, to choose, to act and to create. Sometimes we create wondrous things…new opportunities, relationships, businesses, and sometimes terrible things…destruction, pain, suffering. But, we have within us the ability to create, and that’s so important to recognize and to consciously nurture. Like a seed, you can water and grow your ability to create wonderful things, but your mind will play tricks on you telling you,”You’re not good enough. Who do you think you are?” and other nonsense that people have probably said at one point or another. It’s important to recognize that our minds are word machines, endlessly babbling, sometimes it’s good news, and sometimes it’s bad. So, when your word machine tells you a story that interferes with your ability to weave your dreams into reality, gently say to yourself,”Thanks a
Like a seed, you can water and grow your ability to create wonderful things, but your mind will play tricks on you telling you,”You’re not good enough. Who do you think you are?” and other nonsense that people have probably said at one point or another to you. It’s important to recognize that our minds are word machines, endlessly babbling, sometimes it’s good news, and sometimes it’s bad. So, when your word machine tells you a story that interferes with your ability to weave your dreams into reality, gently say to yourself,”Thanks a lot mind, for that story of how I can’t do anything, or amount to something.” Then carry on with your goal, bringing your dream into reality, just like you did with so many other things in your life before.
