Self-Coach Sunday 87: Zap Those Pesky Imperfections

You have been busy perfecting the present moment, now it is time to perfect your body. A perfect body is not only healthy and fit, but it can reflect who you are.  There is a link between our mind and our bodies. So if there is something about your body that bothers you, take care of it – zap it! These little imperfections can prevent you from being your best and drain you. If you feel great in your own skin, it will show.

I am not talking about supermodel perfection here. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach. I ask you not to compare. What I am suggesting is that you pay attention to the parts of your body that you worry about. These worries might be preventing you from engaging with others and being your full self. Go ahead, if your tooth was knocked as child and turned brown, take care of it; a mole that bothers you – remove it. Are you 50 pounds overweight and not bothered by it, then its not a problem. It is only a problem if it is getting in the way of you being your best.

Self-Coach Sunday 82: Stop Trying to Change People

Trying to change people is a waste of time. The only thing you can do is be a model for them. If they don’t pick up your modeling, move on. Life is too short.

People in our lives are often mirrors of ourselves. If you don’t like something in someone else, it is probably a mirror for the same trait you don’t like about yourself. Instead of changing the other person, look within and see where YOU can improve yourself. Learn what you can from other people, but forget trying to change them. Even better – see if you CAN”T find faults in others.

Self-Coach Sunday 57: Work On A Special Project

If you are looking for ways to discover your special gift or talent, consider working on a project that really lights you up. This can be a home, work or community project that sounds fun and exciting to you. Or, take a course in something that you’ve always wanted to learn. You might also decide to create a project on a more personal side: run a marathon, write a novel, do something to enhance your community.

What special project would you like to start?

If you are not the “start a project type”, then join someone else’s project.  This type of work can be inspiring and evoke from you what it is that you love to do in life. This may just attract a new career, friend or other opportunities.

Self-Coach Sunday 47: Date Your Spouse

Often, our spouse is our biggest support. They are the ones who cheer for us, hold us tight when needed, love us flaws and all. How much time to you spend one-on-one in conversation with the love or your life? The national average is 27 minutes. We assume our spouse will always be there when needed, but somehow that time gets eaten up with busy-ness.

If you want a nurturing, loving, supportive relationship, date your spouse or partner once a week. Try to break that national average. Keep the romance alive and nourish your relationship. You don’t have to go someplace fancy, but do go out. Something as simple as a walk will do. Consider avoiding topics you know will cause trouble and stick to romantic stuff. Nurture the most important relationship in your life and he/she will give you the energy you need to go out in the world.

Self-Coach Sunday 41: Build Powerful Relationships

When asked, successful people will say that they did not achieve success alone. We need support, encouragement, ideas, friendship, love and kindness from others. Having those connections and knowing powerful people will greatly increase your chances of success. This is not about going around and collecting a bunch of business cards. It is about creating deep and lasting alliances with good people.

The next 10 blog posts I will be sending out (over 10 weeks) will help create these deep alliances.  Please continue to follow along with me as we reach for this goal. It may be helpful to revisit (or visit if you missed them first time) my blogs about “Increase Your Natural Power”: Eliminate all those petty annoyances, Plug the energy drains, Install 10 daily habits, Eliminate the “shoulds”Establish big boundaries, Don’t be a duck, Raise your standards, It’s all good, Have something to look forward to every day.
