In Our Own Minds

Posted Posted in Can

Our only limitations are those we set up in our own minds. Napoleon Hill Hmm. All in our minds, eh? We can certainly find plenty of evidence that says our problems are out there, not in here. We might be right but is it helpful? Try this. Ask, “What’s the worst that could happen if […]

We Can Always

When faced with big or continuous obstacles, we can say, “I can’t,” “This is impossible,” “That’s not the right process,” “There’s something wrong with me/you/them/it,” “Maybe someone else will figure it out.” “It’s not my fault.” “You can’t make me.” “You gotta take the bull by the horns,” “The early bird gets the worm,” “I’m […]

Happiness Is…

Despite what we may sometimes wish, happiness does not come from wiping out our problems. We can’t wipe them out. Like ocean waves, life is full of problems and solutions that never stop coming.

Any focus on the who, how, and when without really knowing the what and the why explains most of the resistance, pain, or frustration we experience.   In your corner, Mike PS: Yes. Resistance, pain, and frustration are […]

Overwhelming Good

A very small proportion of happenings at work, home, and around the world are negative. But it seems that the negative things capture our attention. That is odd because we are doing mostly fine. Perhaps the positive things happen so frequently that we hardly notice them. Don’t let people (particularly pundits, politicians, and other predators) […]
