I frequently get people asking me profound questions that uncovers great wisdom that I feel should be shared with others. If you have your own questions that you would like an answer to, feel free to fill out the “Ask the Coach” section at the bottom of this page. Personal information and names will not be published if your question and answer is shared in this section. Also, take some time to read the questions that others have asked and you may find the information you are seeking, or possibly an answer to a question you didn’t even know you had. Hopefully this section will awaken, empower and inspire you.
I recently was interviewed by Karen Harkness on Blog Talk Radio and you can listen to the interview here:
It is truly my desire to finally live more comfortably and not have to feel I don’t have enough money. I am tired of living off my credit cards to make ends meet. How can I change this in my life?
When it comes to money it is so very important to realize that our personal worth and the money that comes our way are very connected. The more you believe in yourself and the better you feel about yourself the more monetary energy will come your way. We must feel worthy of receiving copious amounts of money or it will not come. If we feel lack we will get lack, but if we feel abundant about ourselves we WILL attract abundance. It’s all about how we feel about ourselves.
It’s hard to be a good person especially living with others around you that are mean. A few months ago I was scammed out of a lot of money. The police won’t do anything and the court system is just ridiculous. How can I be good when I got hurt badly and the system we live in sucks? It’s hard to be good when we live in a society that scams, steals, hurts and whatever. How can I let go of the anger and negativity ?
I know that life can sometimes be very challenging. It has been said that our life on the outside is merely a reflection of what is going on inside of ourselves. From what you are telling me you must be feeling a great turmoil inside of you. You cannot control others and often our institutions seem unfair, but it is important to realize we are in control of how we respond to what is going on around us.
If we come to realize that no matter what goes on around us we have a choice in how we respond, then we are taking our power back from those we think did things to us. For me the way I was able to let go of the anger and negativity was to come to the place where I went inwards and began to change my belief systems and the way I thought. You see it’s all about perspective. We truly do get to choose our reality. No matter what anyone did or said to you it is you that gets to choose how you respond, how you think and what you believe.
What if you changed your perspective about the things that have happened to you? What if you looked at it differently? What if you stopped blaming others for your circumstances and took your power back? What if you truly worked on being a good person and didn’t care if others were mean? What if you started to realize that a society that hurts you and scams you is hurting just as much as you are? I believe that people are not inherently bad, they often just do bad things because they are wounded on the inside just like you.
If we are to change the society we live in we must first start by changing ourselves. It was Ghandi that said “Be the change you want to see in the world”. You can choose to let go of your anger and negativity if you really want to. I have done it and helped many others change their perspective so they could as well.
What if you ignored everyone around you and you took the personal responsibility to change yourself so you could move to a place of greater peace, tranquility, joy and happiness? It can be done as I have done it and I know many others who have done it as well. It does take moving away from blaming others and life’s circumstances and beginning to change yourself.
