Less Bark More Wag-Live Your Best Life

Lily swing

Animals provide tremendous insight into everyday living.  In the spirit of sharing wisdom from a “best friend” perspective…this guest post is by My Best Friend’s Dog, Lily.  

Yup, you read that right.  Lily is a DOG… and she consistently Delivers Observable Goodness in her petite Bichon-Shiatzu frame. Lily is smart, sensitive, sometimes sassy and a super hero of sorts.

Lily’s Full Disclosure
“This is new for me – a bit of a stretch – to share personal thoughts and experiences in human speak. I’m excited to take the leap and give it my best. With that…let’s get started.”

Showing up matters – being authentic
For some reason people make such a fuss when I’m out and about town. They stop, point, start oohing, ahhing and then the cameras come out. I’m not kidding!  You’d think I was a rock star on tour.  Shutters start clicking while I’m at the bank, relaxing on the beach, letting the wind blew through my hair, blissing out on my favorite chair, and even waking up in the morning. (You’ll see some photographic evidence.)

No Matter What is Going On…

Never Give Up MTNSCP

 

 

 

 

A Beautiful Message from the Dalai Lama…

Never give up.

No matter what is going on…

Never give up.

Develop the heart.

Too much energy in your country is spent developing the mind instead of the heart.

Be compassionate not just to your friends but to everyone.

Be compassionate.

Work for peace in your heart and in the world.

Work for peace and I say again…

Never give up.

No matter what is happening,

No matter what is going on around you,

Never give up.

7 Questions Every Leader Needs to Ask Herself Today

f8d5586f800a4ef0b0eb13bfbb7961deLeadership is evolving and how you show up impacts more lives than you’ll ever know!

Early on in my corporate career, I reported to an officer in the Power Industry who fully lived and embodied the expression, “The one with the most toys win!”

Creative Energy at Work

3 Energetic Ways to Bring Life to New Ideas

 

1.  Be Curious
Curiosity is the gateway to new experiences. Exploring and asking questions blossoms creativity.

BeCurios-LWL

 

2.  Be Playful

Creative ideas show-up when there’s ”free” time – time for fun. When we take off adult glasses and see things through the eyes of a child – we get to experience a world that’s more fun and playful.

3.  Be Resilient

You have within you … the ability to bounce back and recover (just like this soap bubble) from outcomes that are different than you expected.   Creativity prevails.

It’s Happening Again

It’s Happening Again…

Emerge-ecardThe past several weeks have been ordinary in an extra-ordinary way.  I feel happier and more excited about everyday kind of things…exercising, preparing new dinner recipes, the direction of my business and enjoying TV as well as relaxing in the evening with a good book.  All very ordinary kind of things.  

Yet, there is something else going on.  A new me is growing and emerging. (Reminds me of one of my Flashcards for the Soul (TM) – each tiny red leaf in this Emerge image was smaller than my pinkie fingernail and  yet the leaves emerge through a thick layer of pine needles.)

As for the new me, I’m breaking through, growing and magnetizing exciting opportunities, again – much like a seven-year stretch between 1999-2006.  During the seven years it was a common occurrence to quickly attract exhilarating opportunities, projects, and leisurely travel.  Then, the synchronicities slowed down.

Inspired By…

Lights

I love the energetics of inspiration.  Inspiration is a powerful and dynamic flow of purposeful and productive energy that creates life magic. It’s like being lit up from the inside out.  When one is inspired, there is hopefulness, joy, and enthusiasm.

In fact, the extraordinary is possible when you harness the energy of inspiration.

In his book, “Power vs. Force, The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior,” David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D. writes that “Great works of art, music, and architecture … [Read more…]

Personal and Leadership Development

LWL Women

Imagine . . .

Who you would BE  . . .

What you would DO . . .

If you could leap without limits?

 

Leap Without Limits is more than personal development and self-discovery.  It’s access to your genius and stepping into your role as a leader!

It’s going beyond your limitations to transform your life and leadership.  When you’re really clear about who you are and why you do what you do (your intention), your life opens up to amazing possibilities and synchronicities! [Read more…]

Entrepreneurial Genius

Lead.Leap.Inspire dots wolSomething amazing happens when an entrepreneur’s mission, purpose, and service (their passion filled “work”) align.  The entrepreneur feels vibrantly alive and knows she’s here to play a much bigger role in her “service” business.

It’s easy to thrive in a passion-filled business when there is . . . [Read more…]

Corporate Innovative Leadership

corporate buildingsIn this fast paced changing world, companies are faced with re-inventing their business on a daily basis.  Legacy systems and processes that worked smoothly and consistently yesterday are outdated and demand extra resources today.  Project teams are working around the clock to reduce current expenses and find new revenue streams by looking at productivity and innovation.

Yet, it’s the engaged employee and how she/he energetically shows-up that drives future success.  Research shows that engaged employees [Read more…]
