Be Your Own Best Friend

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

It is not possible to be your own best friend when old beliefs about yourself–I’m old, too fat, too skinny, unlucky, too weak, cowardly, stupid etc keep entering your thoughts. These are old ideas you’ve allowed to hang around. The only way to get rid of this stuff is to condition your brain to latch onto the truth about who you really are.

The negative is only there because you don’t fight hard enough to keep it away.

There have been times when in a new situation–like with a group of people at a networking event, where I tell myself all sorts of things–you wore the wrong thing, why did you say that, or why didn’t you say something…I’ve beat myself up to the point where I can’t wait to get out of the place.

There is no place you can be where being your own best friend won’t work in your favor. If you are some place –like a work meeting, employee gathering, networking or some place else where you feel little sense of comfort, be okay with just being in the moment and soaking it all in. There is nothing you have to do as long as you are present. Take it all in, observe, smile and then when it’s over be proud that you kept your poise and made it through!

From a Place of Strength

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

When you come from a place of strength you can get through situations that make you nervous or highly anxious.  Think about how strong and capable you are when faced with fears you can’t run from. Center yourself in your place of strength. It will calm you down and keep you from panicking.

Anxious times drive us away from our midpoint. Push your way back there in order to maintain your distance from the edge.

On Meeting New People

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

When it comes to meeting new people don’t worry so much about the impression you make. Think more about the opportunity and that no matter the outcome, you have another experience under your belt that becomes a reference point when you meet new people in the future.
