Choose to Shine!!


I have returned to Marc and Angel Chernoff’s first book 1,000 Little Things Happy Successful People Do Differently, which was the book I discovered this remarkable couple through – Get on Board. Using my write about the page you open to, I am writing about 12 Choices Winners Make Every Day. How do you relate to the term winning: Here is what Marc says about it:

‘Follow in the steps of a winner. Don’t wake up at seventy-five-years of age, sighing over what you should have tried. Just do it, and be willing to fail and learn along the way. At least you will know you gave it your best shot.

At the end of the day, whether you chose to go with it, flow with it, resist it, change it, or hide from it, life goes on. If what you did today didn’t turn out as you hoped, tomorrow is a new opportunity to do it differently or to do nothing at all. What’s important to realise is that you have a choice.”

Here are the 12 choices they suggest:

  1. They don’t give up on the things they believe in.
  2. They work with and spend time with, the right people.
  3. They concentrate on the present.
  4. They maintain a positive attitude.
  5. They endure the pain.
  6. They ignore the naysayers.
  7. They live through Love.
  8. They accept 100% responsibility for their current situation.
  9. They take action and plant the right seeds.
  10. They don’t lose themselves in the commotion.
  11. They appreciate what they have.
  12. They make a positive difference.

A pretty great list – let us look at winning:

win1

1. A definite win in your life when this happens.

win2

2. You don’t have to win every battle, choose wisely which ones you fight: Battle Hymn of The Republic.

5. Another way to spell winning.

win14

14. Internal not external: You can get it If You Really Want It.

win15.jpeg

15. Show me new ways, and then I can win at what I previously lost at.

Zig Ziglar has a great saying about winning: “You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.”

Today’s playlist begins with the United States Army Field Band, then pop diva Meghan Trainor. Bruno Mars then funks it up, followed by a Queen rock anthem. Then two females – Vanessa Carlton and Madonna, finishing with Jimmy Cliff.

Love and Respect for All, Everyone Included until next time, my dear friends.

Self Love 9

A Hero is Someone Who Understands


We all tell stories, our lives are made up of them. From our childhood to the day we die there is a story for each day. But do we take radical responsibility for these stories? Clinton Callahan in his book Radiant Joy, Brilliant Love: Get it here, free postage worldwide. writes:

Human Beings are massively creative. We do not usually think of ourselves as creative. We allow that we might be a little creative at Christmas time when we wrap presents or decorate the house. But in every moment we are creating the stories that we tell to ourselves and to other people – the stories that give meaning to what happens in our lives. We do not tend to notice how vicariously we produce stories, because every three seconds the Box generates regenerates stories identical to what it created for us in the previous three seconds. That is how the Box keeps things the same: it ongoing creates the same stories.

There are two classes of stories that we can create about what happens. By far the most common story we create characterizes us a victim of the circumstances. That we were a victim seems completely inarguable. The inarguability comes from our habit of interpreting “the facts” to show how we were hurt, insulted, abandoned, betrayed, abused, neglected, etc., forcibly establishing ourselves as a victim of a low drama. Telling a victim story from the Parent or Child ego states creates an ordinary human relationship.

But we can take the exact same circumstances, the same incident, the same people involved, the same actions, and we could create a responsible story about being involved in these circumstances. Responsible stories place us “at cause” or “at cause” for the circumstances. Responsible stories come from the Adult responsible ego state and create an extraordinary human relationship.

How do we as people relate to being responsible, and what do we write about it, here are a few of my favourite sayings:

response1

1. Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, known by his stage name Molière ( 15 January 1622 – 17 February 1673), was a French playwright, actor and poet, widely regarded as one of the greatest writers in the French language and universal literature. His extant works includes comedies, farces, tragicomedies, comédie-ballets, and more. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed at the Comédie-Française more often than those of any other playwright today.

response2

 

2. I think if you are being responsible for your whole life the accountability and ownership will be a natural follow-on: The Power of Responsibility.

response3

3. Simone moves it up a notch or two.

response4

4. Joyce Meyer is an American Evangelist whose motto is Sharing Christ, Loving People. Her love includes lessons for them such as the one above: Song for the Asking.

response5

5. As the name after suggests, plugging up your excuses allows those changes that you want to make to fulfil your dreams to start happening.

response6

6. Clinton calls this getting feedback and shifting forward: Slow Down.

response7

7. Yes, those poor me stories you are telling years later, they control you.

response8

8. Wikipedia gives a choice of Ruth’s mother in law from the old testament or a WWE wrestling star for Naomi, my inner gremlin likes to think it could be the latter: My Boomerang Won’t Come Back.

response9

9. From the man who is not your Guru, comes some fine words as to what responsibility can offer you.

response10

10. You have charge of yourself and your reactions, be responsible for them on a daily basis: Changes.

You Will Not Know How Powerful You Are!!


Often when we talk about helping poor communities, we’re actually working not to save a life but to offer more choices. That’s how we improve our well-being – by enabling choice.

The above statement is from Seth Godin’s inspiring little book: We Are All Weird: The Rise of Tribes and The End of Normal: Link to Buy It. I like the testimonials – “This is a book about giving a damn. It’s about caring about what you do and (as important) who you do it for. Professional apathy is a relic of a dead era and, as Seth teaches brilliantly, a mentality you cling to at great peril. Everyone with a pulse and a paycheck should be living, We Are All Weird – Chris Taylor, founder, Actionablebooks.com.

But it is Sherold Barr’s testimonial, who describe themselves as a  Master Coach and Freedom Fighter that impressed me the most: “This book will resonate with anyone who wants to lead a tribe, be authentic, dance to the beat of their own music, and make a difference in the world. If your inner critic (the resistance) has been telling you that you are not enough, your work is not good enough, and who do you think you are to make a difference then buy this book. Let your freak flag fly high.”

So how does the world present enabling choice? It actually goes to many places and here are some of them:

choice1

1. How often do we forget that the person we must first enable is the one looking back at us in the mirror?

choice2

2. Rosemary Edghill (born 1956) is an American writer and editor. Some of her work has appeared under her original name, eluki bes shahar (lower case intentional). Her primary genres are science fiction and fantasy, but she began by writing Regency romance novels. The publishers of her first novel felt that “Eluki Bes Shahar” (her legal name at the time) sounded insufficiently English to attract readers, so she adopted the pen-name Rosemary Edghill, which became her legal name in 2004. Not really an enabling choice when you think about it: Choice.

choice3

3. Relationship experts say that choice has nothing to do with who you fall in love with. I think that is what this quote is pointing out. Our heart doesn’t seem very logical at the time.

choice4

4. Those people that are no longer in your life for an excellent reason, they didn’t stay around long enough to discover how truly valuable you were: Don’t Give Up

choice5

5. Victor Hugo is the poet my brother took his new name from when he changed his given name to create a new identity.

choice6

6. It’s the behaviour that rankles, stopping one person will not cease the violence committed against women by men. Its behavioural change that is required not naming the perpetrators: Bon Appetit.

choice7

7. It’s become less and less that I wake up these days thinking of the opposite of this.

choice8

8. You can choose to make a difference with your life or not, really, really, truly:  Where’s The Love.

choice9

9. A title like Chief Executive Officer does not make you a leader, try Nobel Peace Prize Winner or something in that ilk.

choice10

10. Sammy Davis Junior rose to the top of the entertainment tree in America at a time when African Americans had to sit at the back of the bus in most states, he had a commitment: Mr Bojangles.

choice11

11. How often has it been said a particular person had the ability, but that person never chose to utilise it. That’s why it is the people who make the tough choices rise to the top.

choice12

12. One may say, impossible, because they have to want to, you can not make them do it: Tough Lover.

choice13

13. In psychotherapy and mental health, enabling has a positive sense of empowering individuals or a negative sense of encouraging dysfunctional behaviour. One must choose to give up the latter definition and allow the person to do what they need to so they can move forward.

choice14

14. Don’t be forced into a hasty decision, what occurs in your life is your choice, not others. Unfortunately, I think 90% of the human race forget this at times: Thinking Out Loud.

choice15

15. If you are making no decisions in your life there is nothing that is important to achieve, so how can your day to day actions be significant?

Today, some people can make a living as painters or professional bowlers or even poets. There are ten million households with a net worth of more than a million dollars. And there are millions (perhaps a billion) people who make enough money from their day job that they’re able to pursue something they enjoy with their spare time. More and more often, the thing they enjoy is something weird. Choice is what we choose.

The playlist begins with Bollywood superstars Miss Pooja and Manjit Rupowalia, followed by Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush with one of the great duets. Kate Perry adds some Pop Diva, then the Black Eyed Peas sing a sultry number before Sammy Davis Junior takes us back to another era. Christine Aguilera and Ed Sheeran close out the list: You Will Not Know How Powerful You Are.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends.

I didn’t have to work hard for that!!


Universal Lesson: When we forget our peaceful nature, we can ask the Universe to remind us of what is real. From Gabrielle Bernstein’s The Universe has Your Back it states if you have gone through a particularly rough period of time the act of praying to your dominant life reality soon restores your belief in the planet and yourself.

So how do we determine our realities? A lot of it is gained through our childhood, our formative years and our education. Yet many of us do not exist in these realities as life deals us another route. Can we get back to them, let’s  have a look:

reality1

1. I am an English tutor, a Community manager, a dancer, a brother, an uncle, a son. What do you add after these two vitally important words?

reality2

2. What would it be like to free yourself from limitations and soar beyond your boundaries? What can you do each day to discover inner peace and serenity: Limits.

reality3

3. It is often what we are taught that creates our reality. Paulo Friere used critical pedagogy: Advocates of critical pedagogy view teaching as an inherently political act, reject the neutrality of knowledge, and insist that issues of social justice and democracy itself are not distinct from acts of teaching and learning.

reality4

4. Remember that you do not need to change your reality just because someone else disagrees with you, after all, it is only their opinion: All We Know.

reality5

5. Its interesting quotes can be printed with spelling mistakes, running is a way to change your reality, but I think the earth spins beneath your feet.

reality6

6. Probably the most famous reality quote in the world, Chinese philosopher is claimed to have written the iconic Tao Te Ching, which seeker of the truth does not have a copy of this in their book shelf:  Forest.

reality7

7. Perhaps a little graphic, this quote points to the face that sometimes we are blinded to what is our current reality.

reality8

8. I sometimes hanker for childlike innocence over wisdom, how about you: Agnus Dei.

reaality9

9. Joseph Campbell was an American mythologist, writer and lecturer, best known for his work in comparative mythology and comparative religion. His work covers many aspects of the human experience. His philosophy is often summarized by his phrase: “Follow your bliss.” Yes Please!!

reality10

10. I have found time and time again that this statement is true, my soul is where my reality lives: Heart and Soul.

reality11

11. We have a lot of realities during a calendar year, here’s a hint how many.

reality12 

12. Imagine if all our realities were dreams competing with each other, that would be an interesting world to live in: Imagination.

reality13

13. How do you create your reality, with action or words? I’m a fan of the former.

reality14

14. Deepak Chopra questions standard medical genre with the belief that “human aging is fluid and changeable; it can speed up, slow down, stop for a time, and even reverse itself,” as determined by one’s state of mind. His books are worth a read: Re-inventing the Body.

reality15

15. Finally, let your passions create your reality, why wouldn’t you.

You and I , we are ultimately responsible for which reality we hang about in, a statement worth examining day by day.

Namaste until  next time, my dear friends.

Is it a Reality?


Thinking of what to write about today the word fantasy came to mind. We all have them and each of them is different, imagine if 7,000,000,000 people fulfilled theirs, what a different place the world would be. Mine is to have the ethos Love and Respect for All, Everyone Included be the prominent discussion on the planet.

To get this to happen I have created a Facebook group called Interculturalism. It is a place for all peoples of the world to spread great stories of different cultures learning about what they have in common. Join in, I have 4 countries at the moment and the  more the merrier.

What do people sat about having a fantasy out there. I have chosen 15 random quotes that cover several ways of looking at it. Lets begin our journey.

fantasy1

1. Remember back to the time you were excited by adventures of the imaginary such as Alice in Wonderland. These are two of my favourite lines from that delightful jaunt.

fantasy2

2. Lady Gaga is someone who definitely has led a fantasy life. From wearing a meat dress to singing at the Oscars she is one of the great fantasy survivors. Here’s my favourite Lady Gaga song: Born This Way.

fantasy3

3. Considered the worlds most eminent scientist by some, Albert confesses that it was the gift of fantasy that was his key driver.

fantasy4

4. The fantasy relationship lives in the heart not the physical presence of each person. That feeling of only being apart one minute when you see each other.

fantasy5

5. And we do, we are just not very good at telling each other what they are. In this time of privacy the art of telling each other our sacred stories such as our fantasies seems to have disappeared.

fantasy6

6. It is always good to remember that fantasy is not always a positive thing, you can have a fantasy, but if you don’t do anything about it happening don’t expect it to happen.

fantasy7

7.  Theodor Seuss Geisel was an American writer and illustrator best known for authoring popular children’s books under the pen name Dr. Seuss. His work includes several of the most popular children’s books of all time, selling over 600 million copies and being translated into more than 20 languages by the time of his death. That’s a lot of fantasies for the children of the world fulfilled.

fantasy9

8. This is a great space to live in so that the negativity of the mainstream media doesn’t not influence you.

fantasy10

9. Iris Murdoch  was an Irish-English author and philosopher, best known for her novels about good and evil, sexual relationships, morality, and the power of the unconscious. She wrote about the subjects of the human fantasy world, not the humdrum of reality.

fantasy11

10. Norma Jean AKA Marilyn Monroe was considered the sex goddess of her time. She was every red blooded male’s fantasy. They were not thinking about coming home to her after work. Marilyn was a singer too: One of her Fantasies.

Fantasy12

11. Itzah C. Kret author of My Nutty Neighbours is world famous for the above quote, pointing out that if you see what you want to, the world can be a fascinating place.

Fantasy13

12. On Google there are 3,000,000 hits for books about falling in Love adding strength to the above premise.

fantasy14

13. I chose the title for this blog Is this a Reality for a reason. Always remember your fantasies exist in reality, all you need to do is take action towards them on a daily basis.

fantasy15

14. What are the ingredients that make up your fantasy. I include star seed and maybe I’ll throw in some Pixie Dust.

fantasy16

15. Don’t you love those Keep Calm quotes for every little circumstance on the planet. Here is my great secret I know to be true, Unicorns are real. I belong to a group of friends who shares every Unicorn picture and quote they come across on Facebook.

Lets all stand for fulfilling all our fantasies, it would be such a much better world to ride our unicorns on.

Namaste until next Monday, my dear friends.

Can You Hear It?


I have recently been reading Lissa Rankin’s third book the Anatomy of a Calling, you can check it out at Lissarankin.com. Her premise is that every single one of us are heroes. We are all on what Joseph Campbell calls “a heroes journey”, we are all on a mission to step into our true  nature and fulfill the assignment our souls were sent to earth to fulfill. Navigating the heroes journey is one of the cornerstones of living a meaningful, authentic healthy life.

There are times on this journey we wish we were on another persons, I know for myself that I could have done with the five Pysch unit admissions that took six months out of my life but now realise that I needed to go through this to get to the point I am at now with my own business and being the most relaxed I have ever been in my life.

Often we receives phone calls towards our true calling that we are not ready for as we have not travelled or completed our heroes journey as yet, how do we find our true calling and what has society said about people who confess to being on theirs. Here are 15 cuts at it:

Calling 1

1. Remember that first time you fell in love, the ecstatic humming and ability for anything to feel good. Don’t give that feeling up when the earth states to shake.

calling 2

2. Yes as you expect, Oprah has commented on this. Its like having a Spirit Bird.

Calling 3

3. Many people receive their calling as a spiritual adventure, exploring all the possible paths available to achieve the outcome. Steve Vai, the legendary guitarist does it through his instrumentTender Surrender

Calling 4

4. At times on the journey you will need faith because it certainly won’t be looking like you have imagined it would.

Calling 5

5. Melanie Moushigan Koulouris has a Youtube channel dedicated to her beautifully uplifting quotes, this is one of many that could get you closer to your calling : Melanie’s Quotes to Your Calling.

Calling 6

6. One of the actions Lissa took on her journey was to ask herself the question, what would Love Do, what’s your answer?

Calling 7

7. Time to open your heart and soul and hear the call.

Calling 8

8. They say it is good to get away from the bustle and bustle of the city to the serenity and call of the ocean which covers the majority of the planet. Its helps you hear what is truly in your heart.

Calling 9

9. George Bernard Shaw, known at his insistence simply as Bernard Shaw, was an Irish playwright, critic and polemicist whose influence on Western theatre, culture and politics extended from the 1880s to his death and beyond. He wrote more than sixty plays, including major works such as Man and Superman, Pygmalion and Saint Joan. With a range incorporating both contemporary satire and historical allegory, Shaw became the leading dramatist of his generation, and in 1925 was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.

Calling 10

10. At times you will think your journey has gone astray and the above is happening: Van’s excellent Wild Night

Calling 11

11. I have recently spent quite a bit of training doing breath and body work, it is remarkable how much it wakes you up to what your calling is.

Calling 12

12. Here is a man who found his calling, John Muir was a Scottish-American naturalist, author, environmental philosopher and early advocate of preservation of wilderness in the United States. His letters, essays, and books telling of his adventures in nature, especially in the Sierra Nevada of California, have been read by millions. His activism helped to preserve the Yosemite Valley, Sequoia National Park and other wilderness areas. The Sierra Club, which he founded, is a prominent American conservation organization. The 211-mile John Muir Trail, a hiking trail in the Sierra Nevada, was named in his honor. Other such places include Muir Woods National Monument, Muir Beach, John Muir College, Mount Muir, Camp Muir and Muir Glacier. In Scotland, the John Muir Way, a 130 mile long distance route, was named in honor of him.

Calling 13

13. You will meet people on your Heroes journey that before they speak you will both know that you have been calling each other for lifetimes. I have several of these in my life.

Calling 14

14. to cultivate relationship with your calling, practice becoming the consciousness that witnesses the dialogues in your mind. You can then chose the above.

Calling 15

15. What’s that ringing sound of worry and anxiety, mark it down as a spam call. Move forward towards that irresistible calling that you have wished for your whole life.

Lissa also talks about the greatest tool we all have on our journey, our Inner Pilot Light. I love the ones she sends to me and write some of my one now.

Namaste until Thursday my dear friends.

There was No Peace!!


One of the things I do is tutor refugees who need to Improve their English. At the moment I have very two different students. One was born in a refugee camp in India 25 years ago, yes thats right, she had been in a refugee camp 25 years. Then she was put in three detention centres by our government before being released. She has lived in a free community 4 months of her young life. The other is a doctor who was on the council of the capital city of the nation she comes from , I asked her why she left. Her reply was poignant , there is no peace Teacher, she calls me teacher. I have a sense they will both be great citizens of our country given what they have been through.

I have been thinking about that statement , there is no  peace since, what truly gives us peace, is our nation of Australia we live in relative peace from war but to a lot of people They do not feel so, ramping up the threat to our nation. So I have chosen 15 wide ranging statements about peace to comment on the subject.

Peace1

1. That great philosopher Unknown comes up with on of the most powerful definitions to my mind, peace belongs in our heart not the physical surrounds that we are in.

Peace3

2. Peace has a few allies in making the world a better place, I love the last one Everybody not just us, no hate, no war.

Peace4

3. Maura is 9, with more people of her age thinking like that I give Peace a Chance, Join in with John and Yoko.

Peace5

4. Be in the Now, that is where peace lives, I resist this a lot. Need to read The Power of Now again.

Peace6

5. Robert Brault is a writer of forty years standing, he points to the fact where our peace really lives, within.

Peace7

6. We have all seen those silly cartoons with aliens looking on as there are explosions all over our world. Silly or Not?

Peace8

7. One of the world’s great peace activists, a man who lead a nation to freedom peacefully, hits the spot with this one. Makes me think of Cat’s Peace Train.

Peace9

8. A disturbing image with a powerful message. Yes its up to you to be a Rider of the Storm

Peace10

9. MLK, in my favourite top ten speakers, I listen to him regularly, his passion for peace was extraordinary.

Peace11

10. To one of the young things who have replaced Martin Luther King, the youngest recipient and possibly the most deserving winner of the Nobel Peace prize. Malala speaks the words of peace for her generation.

peace12

11. Closer and closer, the world is becoming a smaller place, may we use the words above in our recipe.

Peace13

12. I’m sure each parent wishes this for that bundle of joy they hold in their arms as they raise them with love. A question though, How does war replace this scene later in Life?

Peace13

13. One of John Lennon’s more obscure Peace quotes, but a chance to listen to You’re not the only One.

Peace14

14. Yes a cute dog photo peace quote, works for me. Who is Antsy McClain, watch this: Living in Aliminium.

Peace15

15. And finally a Sacred Meditation to complete with, may there be peace in your life and the world.

Namaste until next Thursday my dear friends.
