Redirect Your Focus to Head in the Right Direction

Redirect Your Focus to Head in the Right Direction

Why Redirect? When you find yourself going in the wrong direction, stop, look, listen; use all the tools available to you to find the right way to your preferred destination. The great thing about redirecting is that if you miss the mark and miss your goal, you can simply change course. When you are heading down a certain path, but you’re not sure if you’re going the right way, use a compass or stop and ask for directions—and sometimes, you might even choose to take another path.

Your focus Your energy Your priorities Your physiology Your conversation Don’t focus on what you don’t want, because that is exactly the direction you will be heading if you do. Instead, ask yourself what you do want and direct your attention and energy towards... read more

5 Ways to Recover from Adversity to Get Back on Track

Why Recover? It allows your body to heal, repair, and replenish your energy to return to a state of health and vitality. How many times do you say these things to others? “Get well,” “Hope you’ll pull through,” “I know you’ll make progress.” How about saying these same words of encouragement to yourself? While recovery is normally associated with regaining health after an illness, an addiction, or an injury, it applies to an unlimited number of scenarios and experiences which can set you back, keep you stuck, and cause suffering in your life.

10 Ways to Readapt in Times of Change

Why Readapt? Your ability to be resilient in times of change will empower you to thrive in the most challenging of circumstances. Change is going to happen regardless of whether you want it to or not. Expecting it gives you a heads-up and a head start. Your ability to adapt to it right away will determine your level of resilience.  Every time there is a change which creates a new and unexpected reality for your life, you go through a three-step process: orientation (comfort zone); disorientation (confusion); reorientation (a new reality). The speed at which you move from disorientation to reorientation will be determined by your ability to readapt—to find your feet on solid ground and step forward, no matter the weather. When you can do this in a healthy and thoughtful way, you will inevitably be more resilient. As a lifetime Floridian, I grew up with perpetual summer... read more

Care to Repair to Heal Relationships

Why Repair? Something valuable is worth saving. Some people come from the mindset that “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Life proves that sometimes things need to be broken, then repaired to make them right again. In our throw-away society, valuable things are too often trashed. Similarly, people can feel a loss of value, and literally discarded. The good news is that repair, within us, is always possible. What Might Need to be Repaired within You? Broken trust or a broken heart Tarnished reputation or status Damage done by an incompetent leader Damage done from a toxic person or a traumatic You Have to Care to Repair  If you have a car in need of repair which you don’t particularly care about, then you’d be happy to trade it in for a new one.

The 6 Must-Haves to Rebuild Anything in Life

Why Rebuild? Something’s current state is weak, faulty, fragile, broken and in need of restoration to re-establish a firm and strong foundation. After Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast in 2006, it left devastation in its wake. To deal with the destructive damage left from the storm, entire cities, towns, and communities had to rebuild. They had no other options if they were going flourish and thrive again. Have you ever experienced such a shattering season in your own personal life? A time where death, divorce, financial loss, failure, or disaster changed your world to such an extent that you weren’t sure how you could ever rebuild again?
