Theresa’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool) Focus on the Positive   Leave a comment

We all experience discouragement from time to time. The key, when in the midst of challenge, is learning to focus on the positive.

“If you keep saying things are going to be bad, you have a good chance of being a prophet.” – Isaac Bashevis Singer

It’s easy to feel frustrated when things don’t go our way, or take longer than we wish. We may become discouraged, and think that what we long for will never come to pass. Over time, if we don’t change the course of our thinking, the things we tell ourselves will become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

If you would like a different outcome, and one that leads to your success, tell a different story, and shift your focus to your wins.

THIS WEEK’S TNT

Keep a journal of all that’s going well.

At the end of every day, add a daily entry.

It will help to change your focus and increase your happiness and energy.

Need some ideas? Here are a few to get you started:

You:

Caught an early bus, and made it to work on time!

Saw a friend you hadn’t seen in a while and enjoyed a lovely visit.

You saw a job posting in your field of interest, and filled out an application.

The sun was shining!

You took loving care of your body, and ate a nourishing meal.

You spoke up for yourself at a meeting.

Your car started!

Get the idea?

Experiment!

Try it for a month. Then, notice any changes in your outlook and your life.

It doesn’t matter how large or small the good things you notice are.

The benefits are yours to enjoy, and will come with daily practice.

With love, Theresa

Theresa’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool) Your Success Is On The Horizon   Leave a comment

Preamble

This week’s TNT takes us back in time to those inspired lyrics written by Nat King Cole – “Pick yourself up, dust yourself off…” (recall the words? You got it!) “…and start all over again!”

Theresa’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool) Your Success Is On The Horizon

“Pick yourself off, take a deep breath, dust yourself off, and start all over again.” – Nat King Cole

What great lyrics! What a great reminder!

I recalled the song as I was studying for my Italian class on the subway yesterday. (Thankfully, I have a few chapters of the textbook we’re using on my iPhone, which gives me much needed time to review as I am traveling to and from appointments in the city!)

I had read Capitolo Due (Chapter 2)  many times, but was still struggling with a few grammar points – among them the section on indefinite articles (hard enough to recall what the term meant in English!), particularly as it related to the world “buono,” and when to drop the “o” at the end of the word. (Yes, that’s right! It’s “good!” The jingle “Ronzoni soon buoni,” that I grew up hearing as a child finally made sense!). What a joy it was to have the lights turn on and finally understand the grammar.

We often go through the same process in life. Learning something new requires time and patience – whether we’re learning a new language, a new behavior, or a new skill set. Small steps, taken over time, lead to steady progress. Don’t give up before the miracle! Your success is on the horizon!

As always, I’d love to hear from you!

With love,

Theresa

Theresa’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool) Maybe So, Maybe Not

I facilitated a stress management program for the American Red Cross a few months following 9/11. The program focused on teaching participants mind-body techniques to help manage their stress and begin to gently move forward with their lives.

At the end of the workshop a lovely man, who I will call Bob, came up to speak with me. He had been working for the New York City Fire Department, and had resigned his post as a firefighter shortly before the attack on the World Trade Center. When he saw news of the event on CNN, he threw his old Engine House T-shirt on and ran downtown to help. He was running toward Twin Tower Two to join his fellow firefighers, when he stopped to help a man struggling to manage a fire hose.The delay literally saved Bob’s life, as minutes later, the building collapsed, with his buddies inside.

We’ve all heard stories of people who’ve avoided tragedies because of a delay, whether it was missing a flight, being late for work, or taking a wrong turn off the freeway, and thereby avoiding an accident. And of others, who have experienced a success, because their original plans fell through and hadn’t worked out. We can never see the entire story – we can only view the chapter that we’re currently living.

Should you feel frustrated with plans that have seemingly gone awry, and think things may not be working out in your favor, remember this famous Buddhist saying, “Maybe So, Maybe Not.” The block you are experiencing may be a blessing in disguise.
With love,
Theresa

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.

Theresa’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool) Get Organized and Kiss Your Stress Goodbye   Leave a comment

Preamble

Big projects (or those that stretch our comfort zones) can cause stress, slow us down and make realizing our dreams and goals feel cumbersome. This week’s TNT provides a formula to help you organize your project and get moving again.

Theresa’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool): Get Organized and Kiss Your Stress Goodbye

“The key to a successful to-do list lies in three little words: “simple,” “realistic,” and “accessible.” – Bob Adams

Enlarging our comfort zones, embarking on new projects, or making changes of any size can feel overwhelming and scary. Our minds may run amok and give us all sorts of reasons for maintaining the status quo. But if we pay attention we will notice that underneath the surface is a rumbling, ever begging us to fulfill our dreams and goals.

A key to breaking down the barriers that keep us stuck is chunking down our projects into small and manageable pieces. The following 7-steps will serve to guide you:

 1.  Write the project you wish to accomplish on a piece of paper. (It’s amazing how this small step can relieve the burden of carrying it in your head!)

2.  Make a list of everything that needs to happen in order to succeed. For instance, clearing a room of clutter may require that you sort through papers, donate books, and discard broken items.

3.  Prioritize your list in order of importance.

4.  Create a target date in which to complete each piece of the project. Make sure your timeline is realistic. Don’t stress yourself by taking on more than you can reasonably accomplish.

5.  Don’t focus on your “failures.”  Use them as learning opportunities. Be gentle with yourself; set smaller goals; seek support, if needed and; make a commitment to begin again.

6.  Take breaks, as needed. (Very important! Honoring your body/mind will help you create momentum and achieve success more consistently than plowing through.)

7.  Celebrate your successes. Have lunch with a friend or treat yourself to something special. Honor yourself in whatever way most pleases you.

Congratulations on a job well done!

As always, I would love to hear your comments! Just click on the “Leave a Comment” tab next to the blog title.

  • Caught the bus on time and even got a seat!
  • Had lunch with a friend.
  • Left work on time.
  • Began a project I had been neglecting.
  • Spoke up for myself at a meeting.
  • Etc., etc., etc.

Have fun with it!
