Plug Into The Power of Happiness

I am very grateful to be able to plug into the power of happiness. Just as exercise strengthens the body, meditation strengthens our connection to the power of our soul. With physical exercise, when you first begin, you may feel some pain afterwards or have sore muscles. If you continue to exercise routinely that soreness subsides but you still feel the muscles you worked for hours afterwards. The exercise brings an awareness of your body into your consciousness.

Ten Ways You Can Boost Your Own Happiness

Photo of TerriIs it really possible to choose happiness? If that is true why is everyone not happy all the time? To answer this question we need to define what does happiness mean. According to the dictionary happiness is to enjoy, display cheer or emote joy.

We Are the ONE

How is it possible that we are the One? When I was young and in Catholic school I had a teacher state many times over that the Bible tells us the world will end when we all are of ‘ONE’ mind. She usually stated this after some kind of squabble or upset, and then she would add, so I guess the world is not ending today. As a child I pondered those words often. Continue reading

Thoughts for Living a Happy Life

Here are some of my thoughts for living a happy life. Sometimes we face many obstacles that can get in our way to living happy, if we allow them to get in the way. Over the past few months I have been dealing with several of those obstacles.

First, my house has stucco issues due to windows that have been incorrectly installed. Insurance will not cover the expense and it is too long to go after the builder. The estimates run between $25,000 and $32, 000. Quite a shocker to me, and this news had my thoughts on a carnival ride at first. “How can this be?” “Where is this money coming from?” “This is not fair!” and on and on. Continue reading

Do You Know the Secret to Success?

Do you know the secret to success? What makes a person successful? With hindsight I can see clearly what developed my successful career in sales, and to my own surprise it is not the hard work that I did or the long hours. Funny, because that is what I was taught…you have to put your nose to the grindstone… but hard work is not the main ingredient to success.

Success begins in thought, as does everything, and then the work follows. Success is a mindset. When my career in sales began I was living with horrible circumstances where I needed to train my brain to stay in the present moment or be swallowed by the sadness. During that sad time I made the commitment to be happy, which has proven to be my biggest accomplishment. Continue reading

The Funny Thing About Today

The funny thing about today is that: Today Matters! So often we get caught up in all the things that we have to get done and we forget to do the most important thing… to Live. This really sounds stupid but how often does a day go by where your focus is anywhere else but today?

Whatever we are doing, the power of life lies in our focus today. Whatever you are focused on is where your energy is going, and that is the direction you are taking yourself. Where are you heading? Sometimes we live in the future waiting for that big event or worrying about something that may or may not happen, and we lose the power today holds. Often we live in the past reliving an event or regretting something that we did or that happened to us. Continue reading

Can You Feel This Moment?

Always do your bestThe other morning while doing my exercise routine listening to music the song, ‘Feel this moment,” came on by Pitbull and Christina Aguilerra. The song really got my adrenaline going and my mind began to wonder about all the moments that get lost in thought during the day. How many moments do we really experience fully? Continue reading

Have You Seen the Light?

Have you seen the Light? We all have heard of people who have come back from being dead for a short period. Many report seeing a light. Also, a common practice for hospice attendants is to tell the dying person to go into the light. What is this light source and why do we have to wait until death to join its force?

The truth is: We do not have to wait until death. The light source is living within our body. This source is in all living matter. When you consciously connect to this light source while you are still alive and surrender, you allow your soul to take over. When your soul takes over you will be amazed at how marvelous everything works out. All is possible when you take into consideration the spiritual realm. We limit ourselves to what we can see with our human mind. Look beyond the physical and know that you are unlimited in what you can achieve. Continue reading

My Adventure to Jackson Hole, Wyoming for a Winter Escape

My adventure to Jackson Hole, Wyoming for a winter escape came to me as a pleasant surprise. Every year my boss takes his top producing managers and a guest for a beautiful reward trip.

My job title is: Corporate Trainer and Business Development Manager.

MMCO Auto has several franchises in the Philadelphia area: Porsche Conshohocken, Audi West Chester, Audi Wynnewood, Audi Reading, Volkswagen Reading, and four used car facilities. Needless to say my job keeps me busy. Continue reading

What Can You Do When the Going Gets Tough?

some daysSome days are easier than others so, “What can you do when the going gets tough?” Sadness, stress, depression, loneliness, anger and the list goes on. The many daily struggles that face us all and suck up our positive outlook and happiness. Once the negative takes us it is a bigger struggle to get back on the positive side.

The easiest way out is to change what it is you are focused on. Sounds easy but easier said than done…but it can be done with concentration and practice. Focus on what you want not on what it is that is wrong. I’ve been practicing this for years and the more you change focus the easier it becomes. Continue reading

How Do You Measure Your Happiness?

How do you measure your happiness? Funny how life happens. The very day I sent my book off to be published the door to a job opened after twenty-two months of unemployment. Talk about Divine Navigation. The car business is not exactly my first choice for employment, mainly due to the long, long hours, but back to automotive sales management I go. My trust in the way life works gives me the acceptance I need to make the adjustment without resistance. This is no easy task. I leave my house at 7:30am and return home between 9:30pm – 11:00pm Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday I get a break and leave home at 1pm and return home between 9:30pm – 11:00pm… you get the picture? Long, long hours and never two days off in a row. I do get Sunday off with a day off during the week, unless it is the end of the month or we have training.

The heart is the first organ of the body to develop and when the heart stops beating the Soul departs the body and causes death. So all makes perfect scientific sense. Continue reading

Is Happiness Overrated?

 Is happiness overrated? In my opinion, happiness is underrated. Most people I know are so busy getting through the day they do not take the time to focus on happiness. The Law of Attraction tells us simply that when we are happy we will automatically attract more things that make us happy. But most of us are focusing on all that needs to be done and what we get are more things that need to be done. Continue reading

Feeling good is a Great Start

6Feeling good is a great start to any day. What do you do to feel good in the morning? My routine is a bit much for most people but it makes me feel so good I actually feel as if I am getting younger. The way I feel most days is what gives me the discipline to do all I do.

Let’s take today for example: First thing was an hour meditation, next I took a break to drink my supplemental GoChi juice along with a healthy shake I made with fruit and all kinds of heathy seeds and nuts. Delicious! Next, prayers then forty minutes on the treadmill to great music while smiling as much as possible. Continue reading

Get Fitted For Attitude

Get fitted for Attitude. How does your attitude fit your life? We get our clothes altered to fit our body, but what about our attitude? How often do we even think about our attitude or make adjustments? As a recruiter and sales trainer my job is to motivate others and I often tell my team, “Attitude, more than aptitude, will give you altitude in life.” In order to motivate others I need to keep myself in a positive state. This is something I work on every day. For me, the attitude of gratitude works the best. If ever I feel a bit down I make a list of all that I am grateful for. Gratitude brings me right back up.
