The truth is that no matter why people call me in for help, it always come back to the core of where their heart is. Even if it is a corporate gig about employee satisfaction or performance, we end up in discussion about the happiness factor and how healthy the populus is. The conversation then gets into the health and well-being of the leadership, and no matter how high the passion for the mission of the business, if the personal reality is a hiccup off, there are problems that willl emerge.
You might be playing in your mind at this moment thinking that, of course, a psychologist would take this tact…..sure. However, what I find over and again is that where the mind goes, the energy flows and where the mind travels, so does the heart.
The teacher who has a difficult home life arrives to the classroom minus a percentage of the compassion and steadiness required to manage to see and feel the joy in the playfulness of the 5th graders in her classroom. The manager of the men’s department has less tolerance for his clerks when his home life includes a 19 year old son who is suicidal and entering rehab for the 3rd time. The bank President who has an addiction to pornography is distracted during the day and has not got the mental discipline to lead his people as his mind spins with ways to isolate himself on the Internet and engage in his perverse desires.
These are actual scenarios where I have been called in for a simple consult on a matter of employee behavior that was causing problems but the reasons for it were unknown. My job is to discover the basic causes so that we can move into solutions. I look for creative ways to make it happen. I also look for ways to, in the midst of these business consults, guide my clients into a zone of emotionality becasue I know it has an enormous, powerful impact upon their overall psyche and ability to be functional. We all know this, we have all been there–inthe land of the lost becasue of or emotions.
I often write about the beauty of life and the ways in whiich my faith guides each moment of my day, inspiring me to present my best from the core of me to my own self and to the world I reside in. I feel poetic and romantic about my ambiance in my home, the nature and quality of every friendship that I have, and with those I meet across the course of the day. I look for the best in others because I crave seeing it and experiencing it.
I know and acknowledge that the world is filled with bad news, evil, mean spirited activities–I know this. However, that drives me to put more goodness forward in an attempt to override it. We cannot sacrifice our own personal space and the joy we need to feel daily because there are riots in the streets in another country or even another city in the USA. We cannot live in a state of fear and anger over crimes that take place elsewhere or about the stressors in our daily life right here in our breath space, because they will quite literally kill you.
When I was in the early years of my career, I worked on a cardiovascular recovery program I created. I dealt with people who had heart attacks. It was my ambition to find their heart and soften it back from the attack they had experienced. Each and every one of them had stress that came over them and took control and landed them in the hospital, many of the them in a surgical procedure. The mind goes into terrain that the heart and the body cannot handle; we are more tender than we think we are.
I post joy, preach happiness, share my smiles, and profess well-being because I really believe in it. I do my best to reside in it. I bring it to every case, consult, seminar, and keynote that is mine to conduct and I deliver with passion the news of how best to touch your inner core to find the best of version of who you are. Build the Strength Within is the theme of my life, it is the inspiration that drove me out of my own sadness and fear and despair into a life of well-being where I reversed my weight gain, my impending illness, and turned back the cellular activity of my body to recapture my youth and wellness. My other problems and stresses dissipated as I worked on them in a mind set program I created.
At 61 years of age, I am vibrant and happy and healthy…….and I am eager to share my formula. Come join me on this magnificent journey of life and living and we shall prosper in the land of romance…..taking it with us wherever we go.
