July 2015 – Take Small Steps: Connect to a Higher Purpose

July 2015 Blog Post

Have you ever noticed how often those who are self-absorbed and focused on their own wants and needs are unhappy and desperately trying to fill a void?

Have you ever asked yourself, “What’s this life thing really all about?” Do you ever wonder if things happen for a reason, or if there’s a “master plan” for your life, even during the really bad times?

Think about how content you feel when you engage in an activity you know will make a difference in the lives of others.

Data has shown that helping others on a regular basis can reduce early mortality rates by 22 percent. So finding your “bliss” and sharing it with the world not only feels good but is good for you!

Take Small Steps.
  1. Take time to think about what’s really important to you, your “essence,” and “the real you.”
  2. Then, consider ways to utilize your gifts for the good of others who do not have your constel  lation of skills, talents, or way of being.
  3. Read Fast Exercises To Find Your Purpose And Passion For Work.

June 2015 – Take Small Steps: The Golden Rule

june 2015 blog post image

We’ve all heard “treat others as we would have them treat us.” Well, the Golden Rule is golden for a reason. Have you noticed how much better you feel when you are around people who are just naturally kind, considerate, actually listen, and make eye contact with you? They seem to be happier, more relaxed, less bothered by life’s little irritations, and are more resilient when something bad happens.

Though there will always be grumpy grinches and evil people in the world, kindness and compassion are infectious—just like laughter and the flu—and are gifts that just keep giving. Never underestimate the power of a smile, opening the door for a person burdened with packages, or saying hello in passing in the hallway. These little gestures may be just the thing that a person needs in that moment to make the difference between a good and a bad day.

And…doing for others is good for your health! A recent study reported in the journal BMC Public Health found that helping others can reduce early mortality by up to 22 percent. 

“The thoughtful little things we do each day have an accumulated effect on all our tomorrows.”  ~ Alexandra Stoddard

Take Small Steps.

  1. For one week, suppress the urge to verbally complain to others. I think you’ll notice a change with some of the negative energy removed, and you may find you have less to complain about.
  2. Take the time to smile and say hello to colleagues, neighbors, and friends. See how much better you feel, and notice the positive impact it has on many people.
  3. In this day and age when civility is sometimes in short supply, see what magic can happen with a simple please and thank you.
  4. In your next interaction where you find yourself at odds with someone, stop for a moment to take a step back and try to see things from their perspective. You may find it is a simple matter of misunderstanding or misinterpreting their actions.
