Taking The First Step


Quite a few years back I discovered the “law of attraction” and the philosophy behind the concept.  It took quite a long time to envelop this into my lifestyle.  I woke up every morning that today was going to be the best day ever and then of course something would set me off course and I would doubt that I was ever going to be in the “Zen” world I was desperately searching for.

I have since worked extremely hard to fill my life with positive thoughts and actions that have led me to great successes.  Success is measured in so many ways and in my mind it corresponds to happy, healthy self, family and friends.  Well of course we all want the financial success and I truly believe that this too is connected to finding happiness in its’ truest form for oneself.

I have had many incredible clients come my way in the last few years and all are so diverse and were their challenges.  Some came in moments of complete fear and others filled with anger and regret. There is where I discovered my greatest challenge; how do we direct someone towards happiness and freedom of doubt when they can’t see the path?  Many times they can’t see one step ahead of themselves because the fog is so thick in their minds.  The sky is dark without any stars to guide them and my role is to guide them through the darkness.

How do we let the light shine when the bills are persistently coming in to be paid, our support system is non-existent, our career is at a dead halt and the world seems angry?  The increasing numbers of angry, frustrated, fearful people are continuing to rise.  So I look at this situation think, what is the one small act I can do today to make a change.  It doesn’t have to be a big act but SOMETHING!!!

Here are some simple acts to allow more positivity into your day:

  1. Decide to smile through your day.  Check the mirror often and keep a smile on your face.
  2. Greet people! A simple, “good morning” can make brighten someone’s day and you created that brightness.
  3. Take your bills and pick one and make a payment.  It doesn’t need to be paid in full if you are unable; however yourself the payment allows more money to flow into your hands.
  4. Take five minutes out of your day to enjoy your senses.  You can speak loving words, hear the birds sing, watch a child play, touch the hand of a parent, spouse or child, or taste the sensations of your favourite food.
  5. Decide your day is going to be filled with adventure and allow the ride to be wonderful.  For instance, if you get a flat tire look at this as a means of getting to know the tow truck driver and see life from his/her perspective.

You alone have the power to change your life….take the first step.  And feel free to contact me if you have trouble as I know the first step can also be scariest.
