An Attitude of Gratitude Today

In May, I introduced the concept of the Happiness Advantage. I provided you with a list of Happiness Boosters. Today, I want to add another happiness booster. Gratitude. I spent the weekend with my family celebrating my father’s 85th birthday. How can one not be grateful for the ability to experience this major event with one’s parents? I began to reflect upon how easy it is to be grateful for the big things yet how often we forget about for the small things. Click here for the full article.

Regaining Momentum for Change

It’s the middle of the year and many of us have lost momentum on what we wanted to change or improve upon during 2011. This is very normal-as humans we get busy doing what we have always done and lose momentum in achieving goals we set for ourselves. When you asked yourself at the beginning of the year what you wanted to change in 2011-what led you to your decision about what you wanted or needed to change? Did you choose your goal or did someone else guide you in the selection of the goal? We know that unless the goal is freely chosen by you, it’s going to be more difficult to achieve.

Happiness

Last month we focused on changing our perspectives on mistakes, obstacles, and disappointments. This month I want to focus on Happiness Boosters. But first, let’s talk about happiness. In Shawn Achor’s book, “The Happiness Advantage”, he reveals a different view of happiness from what we have been taught to believe. Happiness actually comes before success. Yes, that’s right-countless studies with thousands of people have proven this point. Working hard and achieving success actually comes after we find happiness. Optimism and happiness are fuels for success. How does Achor define success “The joy we feel striving for our potential”. So the question for readers is “Do you want to be happier….do you want more joy in your life?” I think we all could say that increasing our happiness quotient could definitely make our lives better.

Oops to Eureka

“Only those who dare to fail greatly can achieve greatly” -Robert Kennedy I am working on a presentation for our team on Happiness using the book “The Happiness Advantage” by Shawn Achor. This blog will focus on one specific chapter entitled “Falling Up” which discusses the opportunity to turn failure into success. As a coach I have had many clients, in fact most of my clients, have faced some type of adversity which they believed created a failure for them. The clients who were able to see the opportunity in the challenge rather than looking at it from the perspective of total failure were able to make the most progress with turning the opportunity in to a future success. In Improv, this realization is called “Oops to Eureka”. What we think of as our greatest failure can sometimes be turned into a great success. Click here for the full article.

Spring Cleaning You

March is the month that we begin to feel the effects of Spring weather. It’s wonderful to see new blooms as we cast off the dreariness of winter. When I lived in Ohio I used to give my house a Spring Cleaning. We can use this analogy when we think about spring cleaning ourselves. Ask yourself-what do I need to clean out; what do I need to let go of? Where are the cobwebs? Click here for the full article.

A Passionate Life

"Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm."— Ralph Waldo Emerson It’s February-a month associated with love and passion. I want to focus this month’s blog on doing what we love. I have worked with clients who are extremely successful, yet are not doing what they love. This seems counterintuitive because most of us believe that if someone is successful that person must love what they do. This is not always the case. Tama Kieves in “This Time I Dance” talks about her own evolution into doing what she loves. She was a very successful lawyer yet found herself lamenting to a friend that she wasn’t sure she LOVED being a lawyer. Her friend asked “If you are this successful doing work you don’t love doing, then what could you do with work you love doing?” I think this is a great question for all of us as we connect the word love with work Click here for the full article.
