What if you could completely change the way you respond to the word “problem”?  It’s a really good idea to do so, because without problems, there can be no growth, no expansion, no improvement.  Problems, challenges, difficulties and obstacles are the contrast we need in order to get better at things and reach greater levels of success.  Know this, if you never have difficulties, you will never grow.  Not in your business, your relationships or as a person.  A problem-free life will be stagnant and static, not vibrant and evolving.  Welcome your problems!

An argument, disagreement or other discord in your relationship is a clear sign that says “here is an opportunity to get closer, to learn more about each other, to become better listeners, solution finders and partners.  Difficulties among your employees or failure in your productions line are chances to grow and improve; IF you get your mind on the frequency of solutions.  Embrace the problem and get your mind lined up with solutions.

Decide that when you encounter something that looks like a problem, that you will instantly redefine it as an opportunity.  An opportunity to look at things in new ways and to arrive at solutions that will have an amazing impact on whatever it is you’re working on.  “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”  Dr. Wayne Dyer

In the very early days of Be Happy First, my best friend said she didn’t really understand what I do and what exactly was meant by “Law of Attraction”. I found this explanation today and felt it was worth sharing again.

Law of Attraction, Power of Positive Thinking, Think and Grow Rich, The Bible, Buddha, Napoleon Hill……. References and teaching of these principles are ancient and widespread; only in recent years has the term “Law of Attraction” been coined. At the end of the day, these are all just words. The philosophy and science, yes science, (see quantum physics) and the message are the same. Thoughts become things. You get what you think about whether you want it or not. Birds of a feather flock together. The hurrier I go, the behinder I get. Lol! Sorry, had to include that.

It all boils down to this. We are the creators of our reality. Our thoughts have power and they mold the world around us. My mission is to teach people to be the “deliberate” creators of their own existence and it all starts with the thoughts we choose to think. If we can learn to turn our attention to the positive aspects of anything and everything, we attract more positive things and the negative aspects atrophy and go away from lack of attention.

Happiness and health and well-being are the birthright of every living creature, we just need to stop blocking the stream of well-being and get out of our own way. Be Happy First is a simplistic way of changing our thinking to unconditional happiness, instead of needing something outside ourselves to be happy. If our happiness is dependent on anything outside of ourselves, it is out of our control and we have given away our power.

Many of us think, “I’ll be happy when I lose weight” “I’ll be happy when I have more money” “I’ll be happy when I find a better job, a better house a better mate”, “I would be happy if YOU would just ________” fill in the blank…… the list of conditions we put on our own happiness is long. I’m not saying we shouldn’t all have perfect bodies, jobs, bank accounts and mates. We should and we can, and we will. We can be or do or have anything we want, but not from an attitude of lack. When we are focused on the lack of something, we just attract more lack. When we are beating ourselves up and hating our bodies, we just attract more qualities and conditions to hate.

The reward for being happy, no matter what, is that we begin to attract all of the things we thought we needed to be happy in the first place, and we enjoy them even more from our place of joy and peace. Instead of relying on outside factors for our happiness, we can be happy already, and then watch how the world around us changes. The beauty of this is that you don’t have to take my word or anyone’s word for it. This is very easy to prove to yourself.

Make the decision that for 30 days you will begin each day with just a few moments of deliberate thought. Make the decision that today I will look for as many positive things as I can throughout my day. I will turn my attention away from things that don’t please me. I will seek each moment to choose the thought that feels better and let how I feel be the very most important thing in the world. Then watch how the world around you changes.

People who annoy you no longer do, or they go away. Doors open for you at work, people begin to treat you with more kindness, things will seem more fun, money will start to flow, opportunities will arrive, traffic will open up for you…… you get the idea. When you choose to be happy no matter what, the universe must line up with your vibration and bring you matching experiences.

Try this for just 30 days and let me know your results. My promise to you is that you will notice significant change, with just this one simple shift. Happy New Year!

Many people have used fear as an acronym, I think this one is from Mark Waldman of Neurogym, but I’m not positive.

It’s completely true.  Many times we have fear that is completely unfounded and does not serve us.  Fear plays a role in our survival, don’t get me wrong, but false fear….  well that just cripples us and limits us.  It is in our best interest to put that kind of fear in its place.

My dog Raki, who is like my child, was recently diagnosed with diabetes.  I had a greater than normal fear and hatred of needles when I was told that me beloved pet would need an injection twice a day for the rest of his life.  I turn my eyes away when someone is getting a shot on TV, so this was terrifying news for me.  But I know better than to let fear dictate my life, I would do anything for my dog, so I put on my brave face and decided that I could be a hero for my dog and learn to give a shot.  After the first shot, I could not believe I had been so afraid.  It was completely simple, Raki doesn’t even feel it and he started to feel better almost instantly.

Don’t let fear keep you from living the life you love!  Put on your brave hero mode and put your fears in their place.  Have an amazing weekend!  Much love.

Being a happy, vibrant, healthy, joyful lover of life begins in this very moment.  You get to make a new choice as many times a day as you wish and you can ALWAYS choose to look for the positive.  Create a vision to be in love with for what you want for your life; look around for things to be in love with in this very moment, then open your heart and mind to watch for the path between here and there.  I promise it will unfold and you will love your journey.  When you find yourself feeling crappy again, start there!  Make a new choice.  Call to mind the things you love, the people, places and things in your life that you adore.  Focus on that, turn your face away from the “troubling” conditions, feel great ON PURPOSE.  Understand that you have all the power and make the choice that serves you.  Believing in you!  xoxo
