Can You Control It?

A tremendous amount of stress occurs when you don’t understand and accept your limitations. When you attempt to control something in life that is not within your sphere of influence how do you feel and react? What is it like for you to experience powerlessness? Can you control another’s thoughts, behaviors, and attitudes? Are you able to make it rain or snow? Can you make a family or friend’s cancer go away? It may be easier to consider these questions from a detached perspective and say to yourself, “No, I certainly cannot control these areas.” However, it’s surprising how much of life folks struggle over which is not within their control. More often than not, you are not aware that your lack of peace has to do with controlling or worrying about something outside of your grasp. Independence worldwide is growing stronger, and what a fine attribute to claim for yourself. Yet, as in many of the ways people and nations grow, the pendulum often swings too far. Nowadays it’s considered a character flaw if you cannot control everything. Ever look at a parent and their child in public and think, “Boy, I sure wish she’d get control of HER child!” How much control can or should a mother have over a 6-year-old child? There are many organizations, beliefs, and traditions to draw from when seeking help in this...

What Is Life Coaching?

A coach guides you in identifying core life desires, uncovering authentic talents and in applying your unique qualities in pursuit of your goals. Stephen Covey gives a nice sense of the outcome of coaching when he says, “How different our lives are when we really know what is deeply important to us, and, keeping that picture in mind, we manage ourselves each day to be and do what really matters most.” Today, life is more full and fast-paced than ever before. One might assume that a sense of personal fulfillment would accompany this process. Sadly, the reverse is true...

Playing Tetris With Time Management

There I was, running around trying to juggle umpteen items and doing only a fair job of it at best. There was my therapy business, and I have been putting big pieces into place to add coaching to my business along with having to prepare a presentation for an annual convention. Then there’s family, kids’ needs, marital needs… You know what I mean. Suddenly I thought about my wife. I began to notice how smoothly she manages tasks in her life. It would have been really easy to miss because she really does make it look effortless, but when...

It’s The Thought That Counts!

Ever have an insight or gain knowledge that both excites and scares you at the same time? I am a fact guy. Use decent scientific method, and prove it to me, and you’ve got my attention. Well, something got my attention this week. We’ve believed in the therapy field for years now how powerfully impactful thoughts are on the quality of your daily life. In the last year, I’ve gone as far as to publicly say that you manifest everything in your life through your conscious and unconscious thoughts. The good and the bad. In doing so, I’ve put...

How Well Do You Know Your Partner?

For my birthday last year my wife made up a beautifully framed picture of my name, and then underneath it, she listed 32 positive qualities I possess. Needless to say, it was one of the finest gifts I have ever received. Some of the qualities even taught me about me. After that wonderful gift, my wife, son and daughter (kids are 6 and 4 years old) put together a similar “Greatest Daddy” list for Father’s Day last year that warms my heart to this day. It lists both behaviors and personal traits of me as a father. Today’s topic...
