Trying too hard?


Are you trying too hard?

I discovered an important lesson, accidentally.  Isn’t that how it always happens, accidentally.  The lesson was that sometimes we try too hard to make things happen.  Sometimes they just need to grow on their own, organically.

I seem to get in my own way at times.  Oh yeah, I’m human.

I’ve been struggling on looking for my passion.  Well I think I was trying way too hard and it was getting frustrating.

I learned along time ago on how to change the frustration feeling into a positive feeling.  I look at frustration as a trigger to tell myself that I’m getting ready to learn something new and make a breakthrough.  The “learning something new” works for me, replace your frustration with your own trigger.  Have fun with it.  It truly works.

So I took a step back to gain a different perspective and out of nowhere, all of a sudden I was presented with some clarity and direction.  It resonated so well with my morals and values.  I felt a feeling of relief as if a light illuminated the darkness that was heavy and overbearing at times.  All gone with a single swoop of inspiration.

I will be documenting my journey any comments are appreciated and…….

Search Inside Yourself

Search Inside Yourself

siyA course in understanding yourself utilizing Mindfulness

As anyone who really knows me, understands my journey to find enlightenment in this crazy world.  We all struggle through the mundane choirs of our daily existence.  It’s only when one realizes the potential in themselves that they are able to change the world.

Some of us want to change the world, however in my opinion we need to change within ourselves before any lasting change in the world can occur.

I’ve started another journey with the help of this amazing book “Search Inside Yourself”.  This is a course developed at Google to enhance leadership and their employees on how to understand each other better to establish a more cohesive and creative working environment.

I will be journalling my adventure as I go.  I hope this will help others as my goal is to assist anyone who needs some guidance.

Remember – It’s only stuff
