Did you screw up? Or was this courageous?

June 25, 2012 1 Comment

It’s so fun to watch her on stage. My 16-year-old daughter has become such a beautiful dancer after years of training. So the look of shame on her face was un-mistakable to a mother. It flashed in a split second and was gone. But no mother could have missed it.  It had followed a moment of her dancing in highlight from the group. She had looked beautiful, so I wondered what was wrong.

“I was covering for a spacing issue” she told me later in the car.  “Someone else was in the wrong place, and I had to change the moves to cover it. I just didn’t know what else to do.”

It was such powerful mirror for me.  How often had I walked off stage after speaking thinking of the point I’d forgotten to say or the sequence I’d messed up, only to realize the mistake was invisible to the audience.  It was only my shame at it that might be visible – if I choose to make it so.

Are you getting stuck in your mistakes? Or are you courageously moving forward?

Self-forgiveness is an important topic to success in life, because without it, we draw others into our mistakes, rather than moving forward. Taking accountability for your mistake does not necessarily require public admission and scrutiny. Putting a smile on your face and moving forward can be an outward act of generosity, that you value other’s experience of the situation more than your own need to address the mistake.

Sometimes the most courageous move it to keep dancing.

 

I Forgive Myself By Monika Laschkolnig (Very Inspirational)

I forgive myself
For having made all the mistakes
Had I known better, I would have chosen differently
So I forgive myself

I forgive myself
For having felt hurt when I didn’t feel loved and wanted
They never promised me they would, so it was just my unmet expectation
So I forgive myself

I forgive myself
For believing them when they said I’m unworthy
They didn’t see my light and spoke out of their shadows
So I forgive myself

I forgive myself
For feeling scared and getting hurt when they acted out of anger
I know now it was not about me – it was their inability to cope with life better
So I forgive myself

I forgive myself
For the suffering when I felt I don’t belong
It made me journey inwards and find my spirit, my true home
So I forgive myself

I forgive myself
For feeling let down
They did what they believed was ok – my hurt came from what I wanted from them
So I forgive myself

I forgive myself
For having believed that my love is worthless
My love is precious – but they were too hurt to open up to it
So I forgive myself

I forgive myself
For having learnt not to love myself
I accepted it was right not to care about myself, but now I know who I am
So I forgive myself

I forgive myself
For taking things as directed against me
They were just events that took place because the doers were not happy with their life
So I forgive myself

I forgive myself
For having given my power away, letting them decide for me
I felt fear or didn’t know better, but now I’m ready to learn
So I forgive myself

I forgive myself
For having expressed hurtful judgments of myself, which made me judge others too
I’ve finally tasted the sweetness of love over the bitterness of the critique-poison
So I forgive myself

I forgive myself
For believing I’m unable, I’m small, I don’t count
I allow myself to acknowledge the truth that I have gifts and I’m worthy
So I forgive myself

I forgive myself
That it took me so long to learn to forgive
But I was willing to learn
So now I forgive and start to respect myself

Nothing releases STRESS from my body faster than FORGIVENESS

June 7, 2012 Leave a Comment

Forgiveness is about us first and the other other person second. You see, if we can’t forgive ourselves first for putting ourselves in a position where another person did us an injustice or harmed us in any way, we can never forgive the other person.  Forgiving myself  is the first action I must take if I want to forgive the other person and enjoy the immense benefits that forgiveness gives me.

Forgive means to: 1. grant pardon for an offense ; to absolve; to set free from punishment. 2. to cease to feel resentment against yourself or others.

When I forgive myself  I am set free to create what I want rather than being filled with feelings of resentment, anger and fear that stops me from creating what I want. The unwillingness to forgive myself for my mistakes makes ‘nasty feelings’ stick to me like SUPER GLUE.

The reason forgiveness works so powerfully in making me feel energetic and brand new again is because I know, the moment I forgive myself, God does too.

MY FORGIVENESS LIST FOR TODAY

I forgive myself for inadvertently offending some people yesterday.
I forgive myself for not making any money online yesterday.
I forgive myself for being too hard on myself.
I forgive myself for paying attention to the critic in my head.
I forgive myself for not living a more balanced life.
I forgive myself for trying too hard.
I forgive myself for upsetting people in ways I am not aware of.
I forgive myself for being a perfectionist.
I forgive myself for not being more grateful for what I do have.
I forgive myself for living too much in the future.
I forgive myself for not letting go of the past.
I forgive myself for thoughtlessly stressing myself out.

Whatever You Need Is In Your Life Right Now

June 4, 2012 Leave a Comment

Have you ever been asking for something only to find it was in front of you the entire time and you didn’t realize it?It happens. You get into a habit or routine and you overlook something so obvious.

When working with my clients, we discuss how to attract new clients, brainstorm new revenue streams, and identify resources to create new passive streams of income.  One of the first steps we take is to review what is already in their life.

The next time you are overwhelmed because you think you need to create something new or complete a task yourself, consider these tried-and-true steps:

1. Ask Yourself One Question. This simple question can give you the answer and the answer is a lot closer to home than you might think. When I was looking for a new assistant, I sat for a moment and asked, “Who is in my life right now?” Almost instantly, a former coworker came to mind. One phone call later, I had my assistant hired.

2. Utilize Existing Resources. If you’re a member of a networking organization, you are likely not utilizing all of the resources available to you, including advertising and marketing. Refresh your knowledge by attending your organization’s next orientation. They likely improved or added member resources that you’ve been needing, but overlooked.

3. Dust Off What Has Already Been Created. If you have a tendency to re-create the wheel, stop yourself and look at what has already been developed. When brainstorming with a client who had a training practice on how to create a product, she instantly remembered a training program she had just sitting in a folder. With a few modifications to the curriculum, she instantly and effortlessly developed a new revenue stream for her business.

4. Take Action. Have you been asking for a solution and received multiple messages, but ignored them by not making a decision or taking action because you didn’t want to spend the money on yourself or your business? If you’re seeing multiple signs, the solution may be as simple as taking action. Stopping yourself interrupts the cycle of reciprocity and the flow of your business. Once you decide and take action, watch how the flow begins again.

The most complex need or request can easily be solved by asking a simple question, making a decision, or taking one small step. With the internet, your answer is one connection away.  The next time you are faced with a problem or challenge, look around. Your solution is closer than you realize.
