Theresa’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool) 12 Steps to Organize Your Project   Leave a comment

“Sometimes if you’re not sure about something you just have to jump off the bridge and grow your wings on the way down.” – Danielle Steel

Today, I created a list of my top seven goals (who needs to wait until the New Year?); things I’ve been thinking about, but haven’t been acting on – at least not with an organized plan! Among my top three goals is publishing my next book, which will include 365 Tip ‘N Tools (one for each day of the year) on topics such as joy, health, safety, love, and belonging, among others. My mission is to inspire my readers to reconnect to their inner being, enhance their sense of happiness, and provide support to help them take consistent actions to fulfill their goals and dreams. The book will be based on more than 25 years of experience working with clients in the coaching, healing, and training fields.

I chose my writing project as the first among my seven goals to organize. Next, I created a plan to bridge the gap between where I am am now (just starting) and a date I deemed realistic for publishing my book. I then broke the project down into 12 steps I need to take, along with timelines, in order to reach my publication date. The process I just outlined helped me to organize and visualize my project in an orderly and doable way.

It’s easy to procrastinate on the things we would like to do, or experience, until we have a plan and take committed action. And when we do, we build our confidence, and feel energized and hopeful.

THIS WEEK’S TNT: 12 Steps to Organize Your Project

Step 1: Brainstorm a list of one to seven goals you would like to achieve, but haven’t yet acted on, or created a plan to attain it.

Step 2: From the list of goals you brainstormed, choose one that most energizes and excites you.

***Step 3: Decide on a realistic date for accomplishing it.***

Step 4: “Bridge the gap,” by breaking your goal down into manageable and achievable steps you know you can accomplish.

Stretch yourself, but make the steps attainable.

For instance, if you want to write a book, one step might be researching publishers who publish the type of content you wish to write about.

Step 5: Create realistic timelines for completing each of the steps you outlined above, in order to reach your target date.

Step 6: See if the date for completing your project lines up with your timelines, or if you need to adjust it.

For instance, using the example of publishing a book, if your target date for publication is February 30, 2019, but it will take you until April 1, 2019 to complete all of the steps in your plan, adjust your target date accordingly.

If you like, schedule each step into your calendar to remind you of your actions, and reinforce your timelines.

Step 7:  Print out your action plan and place it where you can see it.

Step 8: Create a plan to address resistance, when and if it should occur.

For instance, you can talk with a supportive friend, join a writer’s group (if writing is your goal), or hire a coach or other professional who can help you through the process.

You can also reflect on what’s getting in the way, and how you can address it.

Step 9: Follow-through on the steps you have committed to.

Step 10: If you find yourself struggling, imagine yourself being support, and carried along by the process.

Step 11: Acknowledge each step you complete and celebrate your successes!

For instance, as you complete each piece of your plan, stop and savor the feelings of satisfaction, joy, and achievement.  

Step 12: Use the same process to complete your other projects when you’re ready!

As long as you keep moving forward, you’re guaranteed to cross the bridge!

***Note: You can also write your timelines first, and then establish your projected completion date.

Theresa’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool) Celebrate Your Success   Leave a comment

This week marked my fifth anniversary as a Reconnective Healing Practitioner. While the work has made a huge difference in my life, and in the lives of many of my clients, I would have completely overlooked the date had I not received email from colleagues and clients congratulating me.

It’s easy to neglect our own successes. We may shrug them off or take them for granted and, in doing so, miss out on opportunities to acknowlege the work and accomplishments we have achieved.

Take a moment to celebrate your successes. Beginning an exercise program, changing your diet, cleaning a room or having more fun are all worthy of your time and attention. Soak in the good feelings and acknowledge yourself for a job well done. It will elevate your mood, bolster your confidence and, like medicine, improve your immune system.

Wednesday’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool) Inner Peace   Leave a comment

Preamble

Along with celebration, the holidays can also heigten our stress levels. So, I thought a little reminder about inner peace might be timely. The Symptoms were authored by Saskia Davis, R.N., a wonderful woman I met in Seattle some years ago. I added the scale below for fun!
If you’re courageous enough to assess your level of peace, then I invite you to rate each symptom on a scale of 1-10 with one being the least peaceful and 10 the most peaceful. If you are brave enough to share it, I would love to know your results!

And now on to the Symptoms!

Wednesday’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool) Inner Peace

If you would like to assess your level of inner peace, then I invite you to rate each symptom on a scale of 1 – 10, with one being the least peaceful and 10 the most peaceful. But watch out! If you score high, your symptoms might just be contagious! 

  • A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than from fear based on past experiences.
  • An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment.
  • Loss of interest in judging other people.
  • Loss of interest in judging self.
  • Loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others.
  • Loss of interest in conflict.
  • Loss of ability to worry (Very serious symptom!)
  • Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation.
  • Contented feelings of connectedness with self, others and nature.
  • Frequent attacks of smiling through the yes of the heart.
  • Increasing tendency to let things happen rather than making them happen.
  • Increased susceptibility to love extended by others as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend love.

If you have all, or even most of these symptoms, please be advised that your condition of PEACE may be so far advanced as to be incurable! If you are exposed to anyone exhibiting several of these symptoms, remain exposed at your own risk. This condition of PEACE is probably in its infectious stage.

If you would like to deepen your level of inner peace, Email Theresa@reconnecting2you.com and schedule a 30-Minute Complimentary Coaching Session

Wishing you a peace filled week!

Love,
Theresa

Happy Mother’s Day to One and All! Quotes to Inspire.   Leave a comment

Preamble

Wishing a Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s out there! And, as we all give birth to ideas, dreams, and the lives we create, we are all mothering something!  I wish each and every one of you a happy, healthy, and joy-filled Mother’s Day! May you give birth to the gifts and talents you are here to share and treat them with loving care.

Happy Mother’s Day to One and All! Quotes to Inspire

“Hear Your Own Music.” – Dr. Eric Pearl

We all have special gifts and talents to share. So,in our own ways, we are part of the creation process, giving birth to new ideas through our words, our thoughts, our actions and imaginations. The things we create, whether tangible nor not, are like our children – and we must care for and nurture them in order for them to excel and grow.Whether we birth something tangible, that we can hold and touch, such as a baby, a book, a product, or birth something such as peace, love and gentleness, when we act from inspiration, our creations bring greater Light and Joy into the world and are part of our personal stories and missions. They feed us as much as, or more than, they feed and nourish the world.As I was sitting at The Red Pipe Cafe yesterday, in between coaching clients, I was inspired to include a few of my favorite quotes in this week’s blog. May they inspire your creations.
“Begin to practice taking small steps, doing the things you’ve avoided doing before, experiencing “little” risks and “little” adventures until your love of doing what you want and your experience at taking risks makes you confident enough that living your biggest dream is only one more “little” risky step.” – Barbara Sher
“Everyone has a purpose in life…a unique gift or special talent to give to others.
And when we blend this unique talent with service to others, we experience the ecstasy and exultation of our own spirit, which is the ultimate goal of all goals.” – Deepak Chopra”Success comes when you move unerringly forward, rejecting all that tends to distract you from your master plan.” – Catherine Ponder”Think of your work life, therefore, not as separate from your spiritual life, but as central to your spiritual life. Whatever your business, it is your ministry.” – Marianne WilliamsonAnd one of my own:
“What scares you can free you when you start taking steps to have what you truly desire.”

Wishing you a very happy, healthy, joy-filled Mother’s Day!  May all of your relations be filled with joy, peace, beauty and love.

Enjoy What You Have   2 comments

Preamble

This week’s blog comes from an entry in my book, Messages from the Divine, a series of inspirational writings that stem from my morning meditation. While they are answers to questions I ask for myself, they are universal in nature and may be helpful to you, as well. My vision is to have them available as a series of recordings, as well as in written form. This one was written on March 2, 2013. I hope you enjoy it.

My life has no purpose, no direction, no meaning, and yet I’m happy. I can’t figure it out. What am I doing right?

– Charles M. Schultz

Life  – your life – is a celebration and there is always something to enjoy. But first, you must begin noticing the many blessings that are already present in your life. There is no need to go searching for them. You simply need to open your eyes. Look with wider vision.

The miracle resides in every breath you take. They are in the everyday blessings that are here for you to celebrate. And the more you acknowledge them, the more Life rushes in to greet you.

Give thanks for all you already have. The phone that connects you to the people you love and care about. The bed that allows you to sleep comfortably and peacefully through the night, and the pillow on which you rest your head. The car that starts when you insert your key into the ignition and turn it, the books you read that provide you with wisdom and pleasure. The dog that runs to greet you when you enter your home. The cat that lies on your lap and purrs, filling you with pleasure as you pet it. The toaster that toasts your bread and the butter your palate enjoys.

There is so much to celebrate. Focus your attention on these things. Expand your awareness to include the many ways that you are already blessed, and so much more will pour through you and to you, and you will become a channel of greater blessings and inspiration to others.

Many blessings,

Theresa
