‘300 Affirmations for a Positive Life’

300 affirmations for a positive life I once heard that we actually listen to what we hear ourselves say internally and respond to it. We process it and our lives are a reflection of what we hear from others and ourselves.  I tested this out once when I recorded my own voice saying things I wanted to hear. I began to feel differently as the words penetrated my mind. I have since assigned this exercise to many of my coaching clients with much success. However, not everyone is ready to record their own voice for various reasons, with the most common being, they don’t like the sound of it.

So, I created this MP3 because like many people, life gets filled with negativity and even I need to hear positive thoughts. I recorded 300 affirmations to cover many facets of life to bring new perspectives into all areas.

I truly believe that we can change our thought process by retraining what we allow ourselves to hear and how frequently we hear it. I listened to this mp3 over and over until I felt better. I hope you enjoy it and that it makes a difference for you as well. I have also included a downloadable document that you can read along with the audio and maybe one day, you will use it as a template to make your own recording. Enjoy this free download.

The Gentle Giant


Can you be gentle and still be successful? Can you be kind, patient, thoughtful and full of integrity while moving up the ladder of life? I do believe it’s the way of the future.

As we become more adverse to hard sales, domination, intimidation, bullying, and just plain power struggles, it’s nice to know that there are those who are doing it another way.

If you have been affected by the harshness of your environment, know that there are those who support a quieter and gentler path to greatness. Yes, there are MANY who have reached mega success following a less stressful path.

For today, observe those in your industry, your social environment, spiritual community and any other circle you are in to look for the gentle giant. You may not have noticed them before, but now that you know they exist, you will see them. If this way of being appeals to you, try it on for size. At the very least, it will feel much more comfortable.

Enthusiastically,
Fran

Alive and Kicking – Making a Difference in a Childs Self Expression


I know of a woman who allows her children to write on the walls of her home. When I questioned this she explained that she didn’t want to thwart their creativity and full self-expression.

Being from a wonderful albeit structured family environment I had a hard time imagining myself condoning this exercise. I am a Life coach for goodness sake. I encourage my clients to live out loud and live a life by design – their own design. Wouldn’t that be the case for children too? So which is it then? Provide structure and strong guidance or support the ‘anything goes’ attitude?

Someone else I know feels that she was a square peg forced to fit into a round hole during her childhood. She wanted to dance and they asked her to sit and behave. She brought home animals and they asked her to stop. She thought differently from the rest, and they demanded she conforms. Now in her late 50’s finds it difficult to stretch herself beyond her comfort zone and realize her visions.

I remember at 10 years old sitting next to a woman at a wedding. I had never met her and yet she spent a lot of time talking to me as if I was an adult. She looked into my eyes; She asked me open-ended questions and made me feel like a star. I am eternally grateful to what she gifted me that day and have thought of her fondly ever since. I have also made it a point to do the same to other children.

Where in your childhood did someone profoundly impact who you are today?

Being a part of the growth of any child is an honorable task. What a gift to be able to support the individuality and identity of another. I suggest we step up a bit and see what we can do today to make a difference in a child’s life. Where can you challenge them to do something unique, say something they’ve never said, experience something they haven’t yet experienced? We may never know the impact that act has on them for life, however, I venture to think they will never be the same because of it. Dare yourself to be alive and kicking and pass that on to someone else.

Hmmm, I wonder, if my clients had the opportunity to draw on a wall or dance in the rain if they would have needed to come to me to learn how to live out loud!

Enthusiastically,
Fran

Severing a Painful Relationship – Or NOT?


[tweetmeme]Often we find ourselves in a relationship that tugs at our patience. Whether it is due to incompatibility, intolerance, control or disrespect, some people sit uncomfortably with us or downright annoy us.

I remembering hearing for years how important it was to sever such relationships for self preservation. It was a way to relieve ourselves of all the discomfort. While at some level it made sense and still does, eventually you might find yourself disconnecting or running from anyone and anything that challenges you. In time, some of us begin to feel as though all we do is end relationships and wonder if severing is the only answer. Is that you?

There are times when we can’t or no longer want to cut the cord with others. This could be because they are family or co-workers, colleagues or friends. Whatever the reason, you are not willing or able to separate yourself from them. What do you do then? Stay miserable every time you are in their company?

There is another way. It may not be as easy as cutting them off, however, it could restore your sanity when cord cutting is not an option. Severing the AFFECT that others have on you keeps you in the driver’s seat of your life. Let’s face it; people will always get your goat. They will say and do things that annoy you, they will run you off the road, they will be embarrassing to be around and they will suck all of your energy. You can’t kill them all off. So the next best thing – maybe even the most self empowering action – is to release the affect they have on you.

Easier said then done? Yes, it takes practice and intention to carry this out. Once you commit to protecting your own boundaries emotionally and physically, others will no longer have the same impact on you as they once did. People can only affect you when you allow them to infringe on your personal boundary. When you stand strong on what you will and will not let into your own thoughts, feelings and physical self, you become the keeper of your mood, your power and your sense of well being.

Options – sometimes that’s all we need to know in order to feel better in these situations. Knowing that we can choose to sever or not provides a sense of relief. So, the next time you are feeling completely affected by someone else and severing is not possible, know you have one more resource. Know that you are in charge of your boundaries. Know that you can learn to rise above and even beyond the impact others have on you and your world.

Enthusiastically,
Fran
