Have An Open Heart

The magic of LIFE begins with an open Heart. Where do you see yourself being able to have more compassion? How do you allow yourself the blessings of forgiveness to be present in your life every day. What can you do to serve a higher purpose in life? These are all great questions as you continue to take a look within yourself and see the divine essence of who you really are. To Have An Open Heart is always the first place we must begin our journey from. Can you allow yourself the opportunity of expressing your true self in all you do? Do you hold back your feelings because of some imaginary thought that causes you to forget your authentic self? LIFE is meant to be lived from a place of acceptance and awareness. Today make sure you practice these qualities as you give yourself permission to Have An Open Heart for all to see.

Deep within our being is a place so pure that no thing can ever disturb the tranquility and peace that is always present. In this very moment you have the capacity to connect with that place and begin anew and see yourself for all the magnificence that you are. You are the life force that energetically shapes and decides how you want to choose to show up in the world. Whenever their is a disturbance of your heart their is a feeling tone of disease that accompanies the disturbance. Your heart is the center of your being and we sometimes tend to protect it from the pain and fear of being hurt. Rather than live life this way Have An Open Heart for all to see and live with a love for all. This will insure you that your heart will always be ready to receive the love that pours forth to you as well as giving the love you are born with to share. The key to your LIFE starts in your heart be brave and bold and live authentically and give your heart in all you do.

"To Have an Open Heart is to Honor Everyone Authentically as you recognizes the truth about their beauty and beingness"

I see light in all the eyes I look into
I know that I AM blessed
I open my heart to give and receive love
I AM a magnet for joy
I accept my authenticity
I AM a divine expression of Spirits Creation
I AM what my heart calls me to be

It's your day....MAKE IT A GREAT ONE!

Seven Critical People Rules to Live By

1. Listen without judging.
Encourage open and honest feedback between yourself and all of your people. Determine what they want to get out of the job: What are their goals? What do they need? What obstacles are they facing? Approach each topic or concern by really listening with your heart and without judgment. You must encourage your people to share their needs, dreams, and obstacles with you. You need open, honest discussion and feedback to help them achieve excellence.

2. Empathize and show compassion.

Spend time with each of your people and find out what is happening in their lives—not only at work, but in their personal lives as well. Empathy is the ability to actually feel the pain or joy of another person. Empathy helps you understand someone else's position, and is the first step to showing compassion. I see compassion as " the commitment to connect with passion." Whenever your employees make the effort to share feelings, concerns, suggestions, or constructive criticism, you need to show that you care. By taking a true interest in your staff, you will relay to them that your company not only cares about its bottom line, but it also cares about each individual working there.

3. Be authentic.
Reflect often on your goals for people, making sure they come from your heartfelt desire to improve your employees' skills and their lives. Understand that people need to feel challenged and believe that their work adds value. By treating your employees as people (and not simply as a means to increase revenue), you will gain their respect. They will genuinely work harder because they believe in the work that they are doing and in you as a leader. This can absolutely be compatible with your desire to improve results.

We have to get our heads and our hearts reconnected. We have to get our hearts connected with other people's hearts. It means leading with the wisdom in your heart.
-Amanda Gore, motivational speaker and connection expert

Permission To Grow

Where do you hold back from expressing all the excellence that you are? What makes you second guess yourself from stepping into and being the brilliant light that is within you? Who and what creates a roadblock to your success because you are afraid to let go of the old idea you thought you were so you can chart a course and begin the journey to becoming more and more of who you really are?

These are great questions to contemplate on and to answer. Truthfully and authentically. The natural state of our being is one of anything is possible and therefore the choices we make and the actions we take are already in complete alignment with what our divine appointment is. Then something happens...we give up on ourselves, we let others determine our path, we give in to the fear of not being enough, we forget what our dreams are and we settle for living a mediocre existence rather than striving for the natural magnificence that we are.

It is only when we give ourselves Permission To Grow to reach our true potential that LIFE recognizes our willingness to courageously break free form limiting thinking and accept that our life's are full of abundance and prosperity as the universe seeks to give us everything we need to manifest all we desire.

There is calling in each and every one of us that speaks so beautifully in ways that encourage us to step into the grace and presence of who we are. This voice of nurturing sees the essence of who we are and is always sending supporting ideas and thoughts to us so that we may step into our power and claim our destiny. The only thing that stands in the way of our reaching all the goals we set for ourselves is the limited thinking and beliefs that we make up.

There is no lack and limitation in the universe there is only abundance. Of course their are challenges but you get to choose to see them as obstacles or opportunities. You get to choose how you are going to react and what actions you will take to continue to blaze a path of success in all you do. You get to give yourself Permission To Grow and become all you know you are. Always remember you are a unique human being gifted with extraordinary talents to achieve anything you set your mind on.

No thing can hold you back except you. Begin today with a whole new attitude and accept that you are magnificent, excellent, creative, amazing, gifted, dynamic, courageous, talented, and just plain old gloriously splendid and take back your power and begin the best day of the rest of your life.

"When you realize that right where you are is all the power and presence of the infinite Spirit within the only result that can occur is the magnificent YOU."

I AM blessed with all the talent I need to express my greatness
The power in me is dynamic and free
I see infinite opportunity everywhere I look
I know that I can have it all
I say yes to all of LIFE'S infinite wisdom
Today is the best day of the rest of my life

It's your day...MAKE IT A GREAT ONE!

Change Is Good…You Go First

Change is not easy. But it is simple. Things will always change. We don’t have a choice about that, but we do have a choice on how we react to change. The choice really boils down to this: Either we manage change, or it will manage us.

As a leader, however, deciding to make changes is the easy part. Getting your people on board is much more difficult. Why is that? Quite simply, change is an emotional process. We are all creatures of habit who usually resist it, and welcome routine. Unchartered waters are scary! In the long run, however, sameness is the fast track to mediocrity. And mediocre companies won’t survive. Tuli Kupferburg said it best…“When patterns are broken, new worlds emerge.” And that is your challenge…to convince your team that the new world you are trying to create is better than the one you’re in. Is it easy? Of course not. It takes planning, commitment, patience, and courage.

The truth, of course, is that change can be a wonderful gift. In fact, it is the key that unlocks the doors to growth and excitement in any organization. And, most importantly, without it, your competition will pass you by. A big part of success, as a leader, will be your ability to inspire your team to get out of their comfort zones; to assure them that even though they are on a new path, it’s the right path, for the right reasons.

Change Is Good…You Go First is a book with great ideas to inspire change in your organization. I’d like to share a chapter titled “Change What Needs Changing, Not What’s Easy.” Enjoy!

Your Habits Will Push You To Success

First you make your habits, and then your habits make you.

Break those habits that can break you.
Adopt those practices that will become the new habits that will help you achieve
the success you desire.

Your habits are a form of exercise.
The harder you work at something, the harder it is to quit.
The easier it is to do, the harder it is to change.

Your habits are either the best of servants or the worst of masters.
You are what you repeatedly do.
