We are always growing through life – sometimes intentionally, sometimes unintentionally, and often on autopilot. Messages are planted – through experiences, teachings, victories and defeats. These messages become what we believe to be true about the world around us and ourselves. Some grow stronger while others fade away. The only difference between what sticks and what slides slimily down the wall is what we have, water and prune. Basically, what we focus on. People often find themselves surprised at the very weeds they have been focusing on growing about their feet. Is this you? Which Messages do you believe most about yourself? Are they messages of victory or defeat? Read more »
R. Mordant Mahon and I are focusing our thoughts and messages to give practical ways to level up your lives as we level up ours. This is my first shot in hopefully many to come of not just rambling about my life, but focusing on the level up. I talk about NMX thus year and last, how I realize we live moment to moment, and how you can intentionally use that to get through the tough times. #levelup
Between The Lines has opened the doors for persons or businesses interested in sharing air space to help educate and empower its audience to live the life they were meant to live, have the successful business they were meant to have and generate the visibility and credibility they were meant to achieve.
Many expressed an interest but few were chosen. One of them that I have the pleasure of introducing to you today is McFall and Mordant – their names sound like a dynamic duo; and that’s really what they are!
Any who have ever planted in the hopes of watching something grow from the earth know there’s more to it than making a hole, setting some seeds in the ground, then walking away and forgetting about it until things come to fruition. There’s the watering, the fertilizing, and other important “ings” to worry about.
The same can be said of most aspects of your life – your business, your relationships, your hopes and dreams. All these need watering, fertilizing, and other “ings.” Or, as they said on the “Gilligan’s Island” TV show, and I’m paraphrasing here, “…if that doesn’t work, try 1 part Sunshine, 2 parts Water, and 3 parts Prayer.” (“Gilligan’s Island” – “V” for Vitamins – S2E30) Read more »
Procrastination is that word we use to express the art of putting things off. But, it goes by many names. Names like Avoidance Behavior, Resistance, and Taking a Break to name a few. What is Procrastination and why do we embrace it with such reckless abandon? Lord Chesterfield said “Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today” about Procrastination. Conversely, Mark Twain said “Never put off till tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.”
What is it that enables us to avoid the important “stuff” we should be doing? Stuff which might take only moments to do, often with very little effort, and would instantly relieve the pressure building in our brain? Why do we choose Stress over completing a task? Read more »
Temptation is the name of the game – and we all play it from time to time. Whether tempted to cheat on a diet, taxes, or a commitment, we’ve all had that little voice in our head that says, “C’mon…try it…makes you cool and feels so good. Everyone’s doing it.”
The truth is, if it’s detrimental in some fashion or another, it’s not that cool and it often doesn’t wind up feeling like you thought it would. Just a few short moments of Whoopee and then “The Guilts” set it. Nobody wants that…but we all go through it, don’t we? Soooo…what can be done about these oh-so-common, often-too-much-fun-for-our-own-good situation? Read more »
