Really love today’s message from Neale Donald Welch, it says:
…that all change is change for the better.
There is no such thing as “change for the worse.” Change is the process of Life itself, and that process could be called by the name “evolution.” And evolution moves in only one direction: forward, and toward improvement.
Therefore, when change visits your life, you can be sure things are turning for the better. It may not look that way in the very moment change arrives, but if you will wait a while and have faith in the process, you will see that this is true.
How many times that we refuse to changes? Because we we fear that we will lose everything we have. When we attaching to that fear, we stuck. It is so true that change is the process of life itself, no matter how tight you hold on it, it will happy. Today, I am practicing on surrender myself on the changes and embrace the moment of uncertainty and have the faith that it will change better!
I read an interesting article last Friday, the name is 30 things stop doing to yourself. After two days, the whole idea is still running in my back brain, then I realize that there is something there for me to learn. Since I am a coach, I don’t like the way to say stop doing, I am going to add my comment on what we should do instead. After all, the universe needs to know what we want, instead of what we don’t want. right? 🙂
1. Stop spending time with the wrong people. – Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you. If someone wants you in their life, they’ll make room for you. You shouldn’t have to fight for a spot. Never, ever insist yourself to someone who continuously overlooks your worth. And remember, it’s not the people that stand by your side when you’re at your best, but the ones who stand beside you when you’re at your worst that are your true friends.
I recently went to Puerto Rico with bunch of friends. I shared room with two other beautiful girls. I have not share room with others for a while, then I realized something new. One girl wake up 90 minutes before we go out everyday, makeup, clean up and be well prepared. The other girl wake up 30 minutes before we go out everyday, do the same thing. When it came to me, I only wake up 10 minutes before we go out everyday, clean my face, put some lotion, then go out. When they are impressed how fast I can be, I am impressed how enjoyable when they can take things slow.
I went to ski in Tahoe last weekend. Not a first time skier, but this time I decided to take some class to ramp up my skill. So I took a whole day lesson in Northstar on Sunday. Jim, who is my ski instructor, asked me at beginning: where are you at now? I said, I know how to stop, I know how to make turns, but since I am right dominant, so it is easier to make left turn than right. He told me to ski a bit for him, then he stopped me. He asked: Did you realized what happened? I said no. He said, when you turn right, you need to make a big turn from your left feet and use to left feet to support the turn. I see that you make a hopeful try there, but it doesn’t help. I need you to be really determined on your turn, be firm and see what’s happen.
I often hear people talk about office politics, which made them feel cold, suffering and not comfortable. They either needs to to do something to protect themselves or need to pretend to be someone they think they should be but not themselves. We only have 24 hours per day, we use 8 hours to sleep, 8 hours to spend time with family and run all kinds of errands, for the most quality 8 hours that when we awake, we come to office and work. To sure the 8 hours of good sleep, we need a good bed. To ensure 8 hours of quality family time, we need to find ourselves a good life partner. But what shall we do when we need more happiness at work? I had a great pleasure to attend my favorite mentor Karen Kimsey-House’s ‘Air’ presentation last night. She introduced a model that brings aliveness to corporate. Which it very simple, just AIR.
