Let Go of Your Agenda to Be Rich.

Let Go of Your Agenda to Be Rich.

I fought challenges in my life with everything in me.

I've always thought that there is a "solution" to every problem.

As I get older and discover more depth and light underneath the dark corners of who I am and what I have experienced in this life, I'm convinced that my problems are not meant to be solved.

They simply ask me to connect, listen, and then lead.

For the last 50 years, my motto has been: Ask forgiveness, not permission. In other words, lead, listen on the fly, and connect? What's that!?

It's my birthday today.

I am 52, and I can honestly say that I am not where I thought that I would be by this point in my life.

I'm much, much better off than I ever dreamed possible.

This arrival at my heart's desires has been accomplished in the most remarkable and unlikely of ways.

I got here by letting go.

One of the first awarenesses I had, when I began to pay more attention to energy speaking to me through my life, was that I needed to let go of...

Break-Through-Compassion

As 2020 winds down, we're all starting to think about 2021. 

So much is unknown.

One of the hardest things for me is not knowing what is going to happen. No matter how much I pretend everything is ok, I get this familiar uneasy feeling in the pit of my stomach. 

Over the years, I've learned to be gentle with myself during these times. It makes it easier for me and everyone around me, and it also facilitates practical breakthroughs. 

That's why harnessing compassion is so critical for us right now. 

Our resistance melts. The confusion stops. We become gentle and kind to ourselves and others, and we tap into the power of transformation.

It feels safer for us to trust even though we have no idea what will happen next, and we start to notice the energy within our lives that wants to evolve and become whole.

When we tap into the power of compassion, we experience the co-creative practically applied Love...

Enlightenment, Bangalore Style!

 

Enlightenment, Bangalore Style!

 

We all want to lead lives that feel lighter, but we are so busy dealing with the heaviness of trying to solve life's problems that we miss our pathway to enlightenment.

I'm not talking about pie-in-the-sky enlightenment that gets talked about over a cup of coffee at the philosopher's cafe. I am talking about feet-on-the-ground real-world enlightenment that you feel in your bones.

Have you ever felt stressed out, overworked, or pressure in your life? In your neck? In your guts?

Then you know what I'm talking about.

Last year I went to Bangalore, India, for the first time to teach software engineers and agile coaches how to create a safe space in the middle of busyness.

I didn't know it at the time, but I was in for a real treat! Bangalore and San Francisco are within 150,000 square Km of being the same size in landmass. Still, with a population of over 8 million, Bangalore has ten times the people as San Francisco, which has 800,000 by...

Are you from another planet?

Are you from another planet?

Spoiler alert: I think you are, but then, I think we all are.

The world is noisy. We all know that. From the time we're born into this thing called life, it feels like our consciousness smacks us with lights, cameras, and then action! And we're off and running.

When we first arrive in the delivery room, we cry to announce our arrival and our initial impressions of this weird, wonderful world. Right after that, we meet the humanoids that are supposed to teach us planet earth's traditions and customs.

Have you ever felt like you might be an alien from another planet?

I think we all are.

I think we were all walking through an exhibition on planetary travel one day, going from booth to booth, looking at the different places that we could go.  

When we suddenly heard a kafuffle and saw a big crowd quickly moving toward one of the stalls. We couldn't help ourselves. Our whole body felt drawn by the energy we felt, and we had to go and see what...

Do You Need to Learn How to Parent Yourself?

Do You Need to Learn How to Parent Yourself?

"Feeling Safe Inside is so Subtle We Often Don't Even Notice We Need it..."

Children that are loved and accepted unconditionally feel four conditions naturally they feel:

Acknowledged...

Appreciated...

Accepted...

And they feel Allowed.

These 4 fundamental energies happen inside us automatically when we feel safe. 

The problem is most of us don't feel safe at all, but we don't even know it.

We feel pressure, and urgency, and uncertainty, and busyness, and anxiety, and problems, and challenges, but unsafe? 

The term that catches how people are feeling all over the world right now is V.U.C.A. This invented word stands for Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous. 

The US War College invented it to describe the political climate at the end of the Cold War. VUCA has become the term of choice to explain how most of us are feeling most days.

The bottom line is we don't FEEL safe.

When people feel safe, they're happy, they...

Do people feel safe around you?

Do people feel safe around you?

 

If you want to know, all you have to do is ask yourself three questions:

  1. Do people tell me everything, or do they leave things out?
  2. Do people ask me for help when they need it?
  3. Is there a sense of closeness, fun, and laughter in my presence?

Intrinsic safety is a feeling, and like all feelings, it might feel hard to get your head around it.

It's crucial to understand how to create a safe space inside you because people feel this before hearing you or any of your words. 

It doesn't matter whether you're a parent, a coach, a manager, or a doctor. We unconsciously feel each other's energy before we hear any of the words. We are listening to the words, but on a deeper level, we are really listening to the energy that is underneath them.

We're all doing a kind of energetic safety assessment, whether we're conscious of it or not.

The reason we do this is simple. We want to know whether or not the world around us is safe. We learned to do this...

What is it like to meet with your family this way?

 

It is challenging right now in our country and all over the world, especially as we get closer to Christmas and realize that many will probably not be able to travel and meet in the same ways that they are used to.

This has become an incredible opportunity for our family, and maybe it can be for yours as well.

My kids are getting to know their grandparents as real people, my family is talking with each other on a deeper level than ever before, and each person is feeling loved, accepted, and supported unconditionally.

The crazy part is that it's happening on an online meeting that we created that was different than anything we had ever done before.

Perhaps this is an opportunity to connect in a new way?

In the next few weeks, we will be offering our Free Create A Safe Space Challenge where we share the exact steps for creating a safe space for you, your family, and your team online.
