Have a Magnificent Day!

Have a Magnificent Day!

You Can Get There From Here

posted by The MEGA Coach


What is, is.
Just acknowledge where you are, how you feel or what the situation is and allow it.
Just tell the truth of this moment and let go.

You can always start fresh.
This is a new moment.
The past does not equal the present unless you make it so.

“Because what looks difficult, challenging, confusing, is really our boundaries being stirred up in consciousness.”     David Matthew Brown

What is your vision?
What value do you want to create?
How can you contribute?
What is your purpose?

Positive thoughts, words and feelings lead to positive actions.
The more positive actions you take the more good you create.

You can do it.
Regardless of the challenges, you can achieve your dream or goal.

Keep seeing the outcome.
Feel how you would feel if you were there now.

What would you say to yourself?
What would your life be like.

Put one foot in front of the other.
Take one step at a time.

Keep your vision bright and clear.
Do what you can where you are with what you have.

Have faith and be positive.
You don’t have to know how, just trust and the how will show up.

Give what you can.
All things are possible.

There is GOLD DUST in the air!

The Cab Ride

posted by The MEGA Coach

from a friend….

I arrived at the address and honked the horn.
After waiting a few minutes I walked to the door and knocked.
‘Just a minute’, answered a frail, elderly voice.
I could hear something being dragged across the floor.

After a long pause, the door opened. 
A small woman in her 90’s stood before me. 
She was wearing a print dress and a pillbox hat with a veil pinned on it, like somebody out of a 1940’s movie.

By her side was a small nylon suitcase.
The apartment looked as if no one had lived in it for years.
All the furniture was covered with sheets.

There were no locks on the walls, no knickknacks or utensils on the counters.
In the corner was a cardboard box filled with photos and glassware.

‘Would you carry my bag out to the car?’ she said.
I took the suitcase to the cab, then returned to assist the woman.

She took my arm and we walked slowly toward the curb.
She kept thanking me for my kindness. ‘It’s nothing’, I told her.
‘I just try to treat my passengers the way I would want my mother to be treated.’

‘Oh, you’re such a good boy, she said.
When we got in the cab, she gave me an address and then asked, ‘Could you drive through downtown?’

‘It’s not the shortest way,’ I answered quickly.
‘Oh, I don’t mind,’ she said. 
‘I’m in no hurry. I’m on my way to a hospice. ‘

I looked in the rear-view mirror. 
Her eyes were glistening.
‘I don’t have any family left,’ she continued in a soft voice..
The doctor says I don’t have very long.’

I quietly reached over and shut off the meter.
‘What route would you like me to take?’ I asked.

For the next two hours, we drove through the city.
She showed me the building where she had once worked as an elevator operator.
We drove through the neighborhood where she and her husband had lived when they were newlyweds.

She had me pull up in front of a furniture warehouse that had once been a ballroom where she had gone dancing as a girl. Sometimes she’d ask me to slow in front of a particular building or corner and would sit staring into the darkness, saying nothing.

As the first hint of sun was creasing the horizon, she suddenly said, ‘I’m tired. Let’s go now’.
We drove in silence to the address she had given me.

It was a low building, like a small convalescent home, with a driveway that passed under a portico.

Two orderlies came out to the cab as soon as we pulled up.
They were solicitous and intent, watching her every move.
They must have been expecting her.

I opened the trunk and took the small suitcase to the door.
The woman was already seated in a wheelchair.

‘How much do I owe you?’  She asked, reaching into her purse.
‘Nothing,’ I said
You have to make a living,’ she answered.
‘There are other passengers,’ I responded.

Almost without thinking, I bent and gave her a hug. 

She held onto me tightly.
‘You gave an old woman a little moment of joy,’ she said.

‘Thank you.’

I squeezed her hand, and then walked into the dim morning light.
Behind me, a door shut.
It was the sound of the closing of a life..

I didn’t pick up any more passengers that shift.
I drove aimlessly lost in thought.
For the rest of that day, I could hardly talk.
What if that woman had gotten an angry driver, or one who was impatient to end his shift?
What if I had refused to take the run,  or had honked once, then driven away?

On a quick review,  I don’t think that I have done anything more important in my life.
We’re conditioned to think that our lives revolve around great moments.
But great moments often catch us unaware-beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.

PEOPLE MAY NOT REMEMBER EXACTLY WHAT YOU DID, OR WHAT YOU SAID ~BUT THEY WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HOW YOU MADE THEM FEEL.

Fear – False Evidence Appearing Real

posted by The MEGA Coach

 

One of my greatest fears was a fear of heights, so I jumped out of a plane with a parachute in a tandem jump in 1986.  The feeling was beyond words and to this day, I draw strength from it.
Such a powerful experience shattered those fears and belief systems and it turned out to be so much fun.

There is only a little difference in the tone scale of fear and excitement.
If you think you are becoming fearful, notice it and look for the fun and excitement.
Stay open, stay positive and encourage yourself with positive self talk and acknowledgement.

What is your greatest fear? What are your belief systems about it?
How do you allow it to hold you back from what you want?
What areas of your life does it affect?

Definition of fear:

False
Evidence
Appearing
Real

Have the courage to face and confront your fear and watch it dissolve.
When you shine the light of awareness and truth on fear, it becomes clear that it is false evidence that appeared real.

The power of positive thinking overwhelms and destroys fear and negativity.
It requires just as much energy to be negative as it does to be positive, yet the consistent long term results are very different.  Which do you choose now?

Creating a strong pattern of positive thinking creates an empowered life and success.
If you use that same energy in a negative direction the results are destructive.

Either way, you have to expend the same amount of energy.
Doesn’t it make more sense to be positive and create the life you want and deserve?

If you have a negative pattern or fear, consistent focus on a new, positive thought, pattern or behavior for 20 days will replace the old one.  Positive self talk is so important and powerful.

Scientists have discovered that over 95% of all negative thoughts and fears do not happen.
Negative thoughts are a waste of energy because eventually you have to focus on the positive and what you actually want to create and do it.

Why worry, it will probably NEVER happen.”

Change your thoughts and you change your world.”

Norman Vincent Peale

Consistent Correctness Turns Every Situation To Your Advantage

posted by The MEGA Coach

 

A powerful insight from the I Ching:

“A wind that changes direction often, even a very powerful one, will disperse nothing – it only stirs up the sky.  The wind that causes real change is the one that blows consistently in the same direction.

When faced with a difficult problem to resolve or a goal we wish to achieve, we often are tempted to take striking and energetic actions.  Though it is possible to achieve temporary results in this fashion, they tend to collapse when we cannot sustain the vigorous effort. 

More enduring accomplishments are won through gentle but ceaseless penetration, like that of a soft wind blowing steadily in the same direction. 

This is how you should seek to influence others.

1) Establish a clear goal
2) Eliminate your own inferior qualities and earn an influence over others
3) Avoid aggressive or ambitious maneuvers now; they are rooted in desire and fear and maintain a proper attitude

In your interactions with others, bend like a willow.  By remaining adaptable, balanced, accepting and independent and steadily moving in a single direction, you gain the clarity and strength that make possible a series of great successes.”

This is wise advice to achieve success in any area. 
By being focused with your energy, intent and action, you create the most powerful results and accomplishments.

Stay true to your vision and purpose and go forward one step at a time.
Be present, be here, be in the now.
The present moment gives you everything you need to succeed.

If you feel stressed, negative or fearful, notice it and take a few breathes.
Just release and let go…..it is temporary.
Return with clarity and joy to your vision and purpose and the task at hand.

“Why worry, it will probably NEVER happen!”

“Where there is vision, the people prosper.

Proverbs 29:18
