The Price

Thursday, June 21st, 2018

No ContactWhether you’re getting the price or giving it there is one brief moment where all eyes are focused on that number and there is this palatable pause.

There is a stillness.

There is quiet.

There is focus.

Valuable information is being imparted and for that one brief moment life actually takes a breather.

This moment is about more than the sale. It’s about the pause, the connection with another person.

When we create these moments in life we are taken away from the high-speed chaos we’ve grown accustomed to.

We have this moment where we are not jumping ahead to the next thing because the thing that is in front of us is where our focus lies.

We need more of these moments. In fact we need to be these moments. Just imagine if each conversation we have with another person is one we are totally tuned into. Nothing else is pulling us. Nothing else is distracting us. We are right in tune with this other person in the here and now.

We can do this because we need these connections. We need to feel that our words are valued so much that the person we are in conversation with is giving us their undivided attention.

We need to give others our undivided attention. They will notice the difference. We will notice the difference. Life will change. In fact, the others you know might wonder, they might be curious, they will pause at the very real difference they feel in your presence.

Let’s do it!

Let’s live it!

The price we pay for not listening and not being listened to is HIGH. The reward we all receive for listening and being listened to is immeasurable.

To Destress

In order to destress, the kindest thing you can do for yourself is to do one less thing you feel you must do for something or someone else and give that moment to you.

The Prize

Saturday, January 23rd, 2016

When I was a kid I used to walk down to the neighborhood little store and buy treats. One of my favorites was a box of crackerjacks. I especially liked buying this candy because of the prize that I knew was somewhere in that box.

I knew there was a prize and it was coming.

It was the excitement of not having and then suddenly having.

Going to the fair and doing ring toss, darts, and the penny toss are still fun for me.

Getting an expected or unexpected something is gigantic bonus. Who in the world doesn’t need this–especially when the chips are down?

When all in life is going south just one small something is exactly enough.

It doesn’t need to be enormous like winning a lottery.

It doesn’t need to be fancy and expensive like jewelry or a new car.

The best prizes make us feel special and amazed all at the same time. We’re singled out for a moment and that is FANTASTIC!

When my children were small and either they or a neighbor child came to me with a flower–usually a dandelion–it absolutely made my day!

Once at one of my window treatment consults the son of my customer came up and handed me a drawing he’d made for me.

I loved it.

These are prizes–and they are wonderful.

The best is never the most expensive tremendous or stupendous.

It’s not the most mind-blowing and jaw-dropping either.

The best comes from the heart and it’s got soul written all over it.

I hope you have a prize moment today and if not today real soon. One that makes you immediately think–ah-ha! That’s it! Yes!

The Moment

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

The moment you realize you’ve had it and you are done

with things the way they are

you’ll know what you need to do to make things better.

You’ll need to risk and perhaps

even take a bold action.

Once you stand up to the thing you

fear and look it in the eye

you will breathe a sigh of relief

because you’ve made it to a pivotal moment

and at that point you will feel strength and

calm and belief that you are on your way.

Monday, November 3rd, 2014

You can’t always wait for the perfect moment. Sometimes you must dare to do it because life is too short to regret and wonder what could have been.
