I Am...A Dreamer

Your vision becomes clear when you look inside your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” 
~Carl Jung~

In my post, "Don't Let Anybody Talk You Out of Your Dreams!" I wrote, "Our happiness is directly influenced by the level of the progress we are making in life." WE are divinely designed to learn, grow and expand our consciousness and ways of being. We be our best, do our best, and live our best when we are growing and flourishing in life.

Besides major challenges and adversity, it is my belief that much of the unhappiness we experience in our day to day life comes down to our choice to settle for the "status-quo" while we dreams in our heart beckoning us to do something about them. When we settle for "what is", yet,we desire better, we are resisting our divine nature to learn all that we can learn, be all that we can be and do all that we have the power to do to achieve our aspirations.

From time to time, all of us hit rough patches in life when we don't feel like we have it in us to do more than what we are currently doing. We watch from the sidelines as other people make progress in their life and wonder why we don't have the drive to make more happen in our lives.

What I have learned from these experiences in my life is this:
  • We have to make a decision that a temporary state does not have the become a permanent state in our life. 
  • We have to back that decision up with action that creates results. Baby steps is a great way to build self-confidence. 
  • As we begin to make progress toward the vision of better we have in our mind, we begin to pull ourselves up out of the slump we were in. 
  • Over time, the consistent application of effective strategies elevates our thinking and our life.

8 Reasons You Feel Emotionally Exhausted

If you neglect to recharge a battery, it dies. And if you run full speed ahead without stopping for water, you lose momentum to finish the race.
~ Oprah Winfrey ~

How often have you thought, “Where’s my get up and go? I’m tired all the time. But it’s not my body that’s tired. It’s like it’s me that’s tired inside my body.” So many of us are caught up in an energy rat race”, according to Mira Kirshenbaum, author of The Emotional Energy Factor: The Secrets High Energy People Use to Beat Emotional Fatigue. She says, “The demands of life, if not managed, will exhaust our emotional energy.” Emotional energy is defined by Kirshenbaum as “the preconditions for everything we care about. Everything worth doing that’s difficult gets lost without it. Marriages fail when we run out of the emotional energy to reach one more time across the divide of anger and silence. Dreams die when we lack the emotional energy to hang in there in the face of all the obstacles.” In my blog post, Simple Steps to Mana…

Managing Your Greatest Workplace Frustration
