The heat is on!!!
Well for some places, it seems. Boy it has been very nice on the West Coast, but our friends in the Middle and East Coast have really been suffering! We hope you have been able to find creative ways to keep cool and that you celebrated Canada Day in style!!
Al and I headed up to our quarterly seminar with our mentor Andrew Barber Starke the owner of ProCoach, which has merged with Anarag Gupta and The Difference Engine principles.
We learned a lot doing the exercises in our meeting. In one scenario, we were working on breaking free from our past. During the exercise, we learned how we have a tendency to make up stories in our lives from the past.
For instance, when I was a teen I remember my dad was upset with me for not doing my chores to his standards. As a result, I believed my whole life that mistakes and failures are bad. I have come to learn that mistakes and failures are actually good and they should be celebrated for the growth they provide. I now have let go of that story.
In a lot of situations, we may take a fact or something that happened to us, and create a big drama in our mind. In order to break free of that story in our mind, we might consider asking ourself “Why did I make it to mean that?" What stories have you made up about your life as if it were true-- and how has it limited you?
Sometimes we may even make up stuff about ourself, others, and the world we live in as if it is true. If you have found yourself doing this, remember... It is just a story you made up. At any time you have the ability to change the story.
Have you ever thought something was impossible, but found out later it actually is possible? Studies have shown that most people won't do something or even attempt it, if they think it is impossible to do. People generally don't take action unless they believe it is possible.
This month, you might want to raise your awareness and try to expand your mind and believe that everything is possible! When the impossible becomes possible... you become a believer and miracles can happen..
