When I think of Labor Day, I remember as a young girl that it was the end of summer, the end of my carefree life. The beginning of work as a full-time student for another year was about to begin. When I asked friends about their plans for Labor Day, they shared a schedule filled with weekend parties, cookouts, and festivals. A great time to relax and enjoy a day off.

 

My friends and I couldn’t recall the origin of the Labor Day Holiday, only that it had something to do with workers’ rights.  How about you? Do you know how Labor Day became a national holiday? I decided to look it up and learned that there were two key events that happened leading up to the creation of the Labor Day holiday.

If you were convinced that you could never make a mistake, what would you do? I’ve asked that question to dozens of people and they responded with descriptions of risk taking in business, relationships, adventure, and finances. It’s the fear of making a mistake that keeps people from taking these kinds of risks. Their goal is to avoid failure and disappointment.

 

It’s my belief that there are no mistakes.  There are only learning experiences.

 

Singer and songwriter, Dale Turner said;” Some of the best lessons we ever learn are learned from past mistakes. The error of the past is the wisdom and success of the future.” When you feel that you’ve made a mistake, remember that there is something that you can learn from the experience to help you in the future.

In one of my recent workshops, I had the pleasure to meet an attendee who shared a story about her past that brought me to tears.  By no fault of her own, she was a victim of a terrible act.  She told me this story because I had talked about how forgiveness benefits the forgiver and I went on to point out that as we remain diligent in our daily practice, we can transform the appearance of past events into something that we see as useful or helpful in creating the great life that we want in our future.  She didn’t see that as a possibility and asked me how to do that.

 

First, forgiveness does not condone anyone or any situation from your past that has been hurtful and unjust.  Forgiveness is for your benefit; to make room within you to receive more of the good things that you’d like for your life. As Desmond Tutu said “Forgiveness says you are given a chance to make a new beginning.”

 recently made a trip to St. Petersburg, Russia, and was amazed to learn the history of the city from people that I met. In the past 200 years, they have been through dramatic political and economic upheavals that have allowed them different levels of freedom with each change. They have had their city bombed during wars and have rebuilt buildings and their infrastructure into something that they feel is valuable in telling their historical story. Everyone that I met seemed to have a hopeful outlook for their future and demonstrated a sense of responsibility to use their skills and talents in a constructive way.

 

As I got deeper into some conversations, I discovered that the people that I met felt that they had something to contribute to their community and it was their responsibility to figure that out. Whether they were a tour guide who spoke multiple languages, or a grounds keeper at a public park, they said that they felt that it was necessary to give their best when doing their jobs and supporting their coworkers so that they, their family, their community, and their country benefited from their efforts.

I hope that you are enjoying lovely sights of spring, witnessing the rebirth of beauty that has been lying dormant all winter long. In my neighborhood, the flowers are blooming, the buds are blossoming, and the greenery on trees is waking up to the lighter and warmer days.  This time of year has the energy of life and symbolism.

 

With the Easter celebrations, we are called to “rise up” into a new life. Color returns in the form of decorations, flowers, and even those marshmallow bunnies and chicks that we layer in Easter baskets. Many people, who don’t visit a religious church or organization all year long, feel some attraction in joining their families for the celebration of Easter – a symbol of new life and hope.

Achieving what you want is not difficult, but describing properly what you really want can take some concerted mental and physical effort.  Often, we are too vague or describe what we don’t want – then we’re surprised that we get more of what we don’t want. As you change your words to describe a completed goal with gratitude, as though it is already manifest, you will start to see evidence of that occurring in your life.  To make this a new habit, you will have to practice this behavior repeatedly.

 

Remember when you learned to ride a bike, drive a car, read, or type?  All of these activities required you to practice and repeat the skills that you were learning every day until they became a habit. I know some people who can type as fast as they can talk due to repeating the behavior over and over. The same is true for any goals that we want to achieve.  We have to review what we want repeatedly in order to attract it into our lives. One of my favorite teachers is a 1920s author named Florence Scovell Shinn. She said “We can’t always control our thoughts, but we can control our words. And, through repetition we impress the subconscious mind and then become masters of any situation.”

Love is a Choice, Not a Feeling

During the month of February, we’re encouraged to show our love and appreciation for those that are close to us and shower them with affection and perhaps a few gifts as well.  No matter how you express your love for someone, remember that to love is a choice, not a feeling.

 

Many of us have heard people say that they “fell in love” with someone or “fell out of love” with another. And, while your relationship may change from being close as an intimate couple or friend, to not being in relationship at all, love has nothing to do with it.

Start 2017 with Good Financial Habits

 

I had an opportunity to be on the New Day Northwest Show here in Seattle earlier this month (http://www.king5.com/mb/entertainment/television/programs/new-day-northwest/start-2017-with-good-financial-habits/381965861) to talk about Good Financial Habits and I thought I’d share a few tips with you.

 

After the holidays, many of us review the previous year and make plans for a better New Year.  Issues around money and our financial position tend to be near the top of everybody’s list for improvement. There are some practical steps that you can take to enhance your finances for 2017 and I’m delighted to outline some of these for you.

 

First, decide what you want. Answer the following questions to help you to create your powerful goal statements:

 

  • What amount of money do I want to be financially free in 2017?
  • How will I feel having met my goal for improved finances?
  • What will my life be like with that financial freedom?
  • Who will I be with and where will we be?
  • What talents and skills will I be using?

 

Now create goal statements that you can use in your daily morning practice as described in my book, The Path to Wealth; Seven Spiritual Steps for Financial Abundance. e.g. “I am so grateful that I now have a minimum or more that $___ to use and enjoy, bless others with, and invest and increase as my CSO guides and directs me to do so. I’m delighted that I live financially free and that my family and I enjoy a sense of satisfaction as we easily and joyfully live within our means with all of our needs met in a beautiful home that allows us to feel happy and loved. I’m so grateful that I use my remarkable skills and talents in meaningful ways to help my company accomplish our mission and that I appreciate my coworkers, customers, and vendors and feel valued by all related to my work.  I love my peaceful and joyful life of financial freedom!”
 

Next, each morning write down your goal statements, read them out loud, and imagine seeing yourself in your financially free life. Throughout the day, expect and watch for possibilities and intuitive directions to take steps that will help you to achieve your goals.
