Mind Meals

January 27, 2011
One of my clients is a very successful corporate executive who engaged in a six-session life coaching process with me.  After our very first session, this man called me on the phone and said, “Paul, it’s like my mind was hungry for this.”  Many of us don’t realize that we feed our minds daily – the question becomes WHAT do we feed our minds.  To intentionally consume mind food that inspires, uplifts, enlightens, and encourages will go far toward assisting you to remain in a paradigm of positivity and production.
 
If you would hit the mark, you must aim a little above it; every arrow that flies feels the attraction of earth.

What DO You Have?

January 6, 2011
I was reminded recently of a story from the rich Christian tradition of the New Testament wherein Jesus was teaching a large group of people and they became hungry.  He told his disciples that he wanted to feed them, and the immediate response of the disciples was one of scarcity, almost as if they were saying, “Look at all of this food that we DON’T have.”  They were focused on their lack of resources.  Well, that wasn’t very useful to Jesus who redirected them by asking, “What DO you have?”  That’s when they came up with the inventory of a few loaves and fishes, leading to the miracle of abundance.  Focusing on what you DON’T have will do nothing more than leave you feeling frustrated and discouraged.  What DO you have?  Now that is a useful question.  Bring what you have and start with that to create abundance.

Vision is what gives us the power to initiate movement.
