What stops you? What stops you from achieving, from manifesting that which you want? What stops you, gets in your way, weighs you down?

Whatever name you put to “it,” “it” is fear: fear of failure, fear of success, fear of disappointment, fear of getting hurt, of rejection, of illness, of death, or life.

Today, Our Lady of Weight Loss (she who encourages you to lighten up in all ways) and Janice Taylor (your Life and Wellness Coach—that’s me) offer a platter full of fear quotes that can help you to look at, push through and live with fear!

How to Courageously Scare the Pants Off Yourself!
10 #Fear Quotes

Men go to far greater lengths to avoid what they fear than to obtain what they desire. ~ Dan Brown, The Da Vinci Code

There are two kinds of fears: rational and irrational- or in simpler terms, fears that make sense and fears that don’t. ~ Lemony Snicket

Laughter is poison to fear. ~ George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

There is no beauty in sadness. No honor in suffering. No growth in fear. No relief in hate. It’s just a waste of perfectly good happiness.~ Katerina Stoykova Klemer

There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life. ~ John Lennon

The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek. ~ Joseph Campbell

Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity. ~ Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

Have no fear of perfection—you’ll never reach it. ~ Salvador Dali

Anxiety is the dizziness of freedom. ~ Soren Kierkegaard

I must say a word about fear. It is life’s only true opponent. Only fear can defeat life. It is a clever, treacherous adversary, how well I know. It has no decency, respects no law or convention, shows no mercy. It goes for your weakest spot, which it finds with unnerving ease. It begins in your mind, always … so you must fight hard to express it. You must fight hard to shine the light of words upon it. Because if you don’t, if your fear becomes a wordless darkness that you avoid, perhaps even manage to forget, you open yourself to further attacks of fear because you never truly fought the opponent who defeated you. ~ Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Coach Yourself Thinnish: Enough Already???

Practice Gratitude ...contact Janice Taylor, Weight Loss SUCCESS Coach, Author, Artist, Positarian

Practice Gratitude …contact Janice Taylor, Weight Loss SUCCESS Coach, Author, Artist, Positarian

What will you do when you are rich enough, thin enough, smart enough, when you have enough? Seriously, if you are not seeking more, striving, pushing, accumulating, what will you do?

I’m guessing, given the culture in which we leave, a society that promotes the pursuit of mo’ money, mo’ power, mo’ accomplishments, mo’ things mo’ self-improvement that we haven’t fully explored the concept of “enough.”

Just for today, give yourself a break. Practice self-acceptance, compassion and gratitude. Derive contentment, satisfaction and happiness from every good thing that comes your way.

Enough already?
Practice Gratitude…Sometimes it’s just that simple!

Kick in the Tush Tuesday: It’s NOT About Your Fat; It IS About Your Life

Are You Ready to LET IT GO? ~  contact Janice Taylor, Weight Loss SUCCESS Coach, Hypnotherapist, Author, Artist, Positarian

Are You Ready to LET IT GO? ~ contact Janice Taylor, Weight Loss SUCCESS Coach, Hypnotherapist, Author, Artist, Positarian

Just the other day, I was talking to a client and sharing the metaphor some of you may have read in my book All Is Forgiven, Move On or heard me speak about on the radio. I thought it worth reviewing today and taking it one step further.  Ready? Good!

Have you ever watched an Olympic swimmer push off the side of the pool? It is quite amazing, isn’t it? The thrust, the power, their determination is enormous. Often the strength of this one solitary push can propel the Olympian right straight into the middle of the Olympic-sized pool.

When we decide to go on a ‘diet,’ we essentially push off from the side of the ‘pool of discontent.’ We gather a vast amount of energy from not liking ourselves, being disgusted, and ashamed of how we look. We don’t like ourselves; do we? No, we sure don’t.

Sometimes this energy takes us half way to our goal weight. Sometimes all the way … 10, 20, 30, 100, 200 pounds lost. Then what?

Unlike the Olympic swimmer who has a plan; who is moving toward her big win; who sees herself as a champion and knows with every cell and fiber of her being that she is the victor, we only know ourselves to be losers. We are basing this attempt on past attempts to lose, which have failed.

It is easy to get lost if you don’t know where you are going. If you want to be victorious at the game of Permanent Fat Removal, then you need to have a compelling future. You need to have a plan that says, “This is what I am aiming for; this is the direction in which I am going. This is what I want; this is what removing those excess pounds mean to me.”

The diet and exercise plans do not live alone. This is a holistic event.

It’s about your life, not your fat.

Where are you going?
What is your compelling future?
It’s not about just losing weight, is it?

As human beings, we are generally either for or against something; we are moving toward or away from something. As is the case with the swimmer and the dieter; the swimmer is moving toward her victory, the dieter is moving away from discontent, self-loathing, and unhappiness – a variety of negative feelings.

No one I know has ever woken up and said whoopee, “I’m fatter than ever. Think I’ll go on a diet!” Moving toward something or being for something is far more motivating and powerful when it comes to inspiring change than pushing away from something. Think about that for a moment in terms of your inspiring your own change and motivating yourself.

When moving toward something, as if by magic, a compelling energy ignites. The powerful energy flows from your constructive core; from your positive intentions.

When you are for something, there is an air of optimism that surrounds it. When you are for something your positively charged energy ripples out into the universe and the possibility of transformation exists – not just for you – but also on a global scale.

Your positive thoughts and actions, which represent your values, are in a sense bigger than you are. They ripple out into the universe. Did you hear that? I’ll say it again – your positive thoughts and actions not only have an effect on you, but they also ripple out into the universe. The possibility of transformation exists – on a global scale.

I know I am repeating myself; but I really want to make this point.
You are bigger (in the best possible way) than you.

What are you for?
How will you move toward it today?

Have you ever heard of ART? Not as in art that artists create, or Art as in Art Garfunkel, but rather ART a.k.a. Attention Restoration Theory? ART asserts that people can mull over, chew over, focus and contemplate more keenly and attentively after spending time in nature, or even looking at scenes of nature.

It’s mystical, it’s magical and yet, we all know at our stardust cores that nature restores mental health similarly to the way that food and water nurture and bring our bodies back to health.

When we encounter an onrush of scenery, when we breathe in air, stretch our eyes to the mountaintop and listen to the birds sing their songs, we feel happier.

On this glorious spring day, I invite you to click through “The Birdhouse, the Cactus and All” (a photo taken by Janny Taylor—that’s me—from my Courtyard series) and contemplate your next nature-move.

Will you go outside, seek a quiet place where you can be alone with the heavens? Will you smell the dirt? Will you breathe in and out in accordance with the pace of nature and learn her secrets?
