How Your Positive Thinking Helps Us All

Thinking ‘We’ Helps ‘Me’ Do Better Many of us now realize that the kinds of thoughts we think throughout most of the day create our reality. We try to program ourselves with positive self-talk, such as: ‘I am going to have a great day. All good things will flow to me, and everything that’s supposed to happen will happen.’ This approach works (and there’s been a good deal of research into it, detailed in my book The Intention Experiment ) because our brains, clever as they are in most other regards, cannot tell the difference between an action and a thought. Most of the research on self-talk and mental rehearsal has focused on internal pep talks by individuals about themselves, but Veronica Son and Deborah Feltz of the Department of Kinesiology at Michigan State University designed an ingenious study to test what happens to individual performance when participants concentrate their […]

10 Powerful Benefits of Change: Why Embrace It

10 Powerful Benefits of Change: Why Embrace It

“If you do not create change, change will create you.” ~Unknown We are often resistant to change, and we don’t realize that change itself is constant. Even if you resist it or avoid it, it will enter your life just the same. When you initiate the change yourself, it’s pretty easy to adopt to it, since it’s a wanted one. But are the unplanned and unexpected changes bad? What if all changes were good by default? I have been embracing change since a young age. During my life I have lived in five countries and in over twenty-five apartments, changed five schools and about five different careers. At first it is a bit difficult and annoying, but after a while you get used to the change so much that if it doesn’t come for a while, you end up moving the furniture at home in order to feel something changing.

Who Is On Your Speed Dial Circle?

Who Is On Your Speed Dial Circle?

When you are sick, you are miserable. And because you are miserable, you try your best to regain yourhealth as quickly as possible by any means possible. You take the right medicines; eat your chicken soup;rest; drink lots of fluids – but, there are times when this is not enough. You are just too weak to do this on your own, and you need help. If you are single and you don’t have a significant other. If your family doesn’t live nearby, this can be a real problem. You really don’t want to pester your friends when you are sick, but once in a while you have to speed dial a sister friend to come to your aid. If you are lucky, she will act even more quickly than an ambulance. Recently, I had a frightening health event as I was driving home from New York. My heart was beating […]

Why Not Me!

Why Not Me!

On April 1, 2013, I celebrated the 45 years of my life on this earth. As the day approached, I began to think about how I wanted to spend my special day…perhaps an intimate gathering in my home or a big party at a nightclub, or just dinner with a few sister friends. After tossing all of those options in the air, I decided that instead of being with others, I preferred to have a little “me time.” Quiet time when I could reflect on my past and think about my present. I decided to spend that time in Anguilla, BWI and that was the best birthday present I could have given to myself. On the morning of my birthday, I opened an email that read, “On your birthday, stop focusing on your age and start meditating on your life at this exact moment. How can you make it better? […]

Lesson From My Son

Lesson From My Son

We can learn a lot from children. In a world where adults place so much emphasis on the past and the future, children live in the moment…the “right now.” Whatever happened last month, or last week for that matter, is a distant memory. They could care less about what is going to happen tomorrow. When they rest their heads on their pillows at night, I’m sure they are not wrestling with tomorrow’s worries as they try to go to sleep. I recall a time when my son had done something that upset me. I began to explain to him the domino effect of his actions and how each action impacts other areas of his life. But I didn’t stop there. I repeated it, embellished it and repeated it again. Our “talk,” or shall I say my lecture and his silent reaction, finally concluded and he retreated to his bedroom. Meanwhile […]
