I can still remember my mother saying to me as a child, "Cheryl, I will not tolerate that behavior."


I can still remember my mother saying to me as a child, "Cheryl, I will not tolerate that behavior." Of course, at this point, I can't remember what I had done that she couldn't tolerate. However, at the time I knew that if I continued down whatever path I was on I would end up receiving a spanking. And yes, there were plenty of times I kept traveling the path.

Tolerations are those things we put up with. They can be a nagging pain in the back. It can be the disrespectful or inappropriate behavior of others. It can the unsupportive thoughts or words we say to ourselves. It can also include the ‘stuff' around us, like those junk drawers that are filled to the brim. A disorganized garage or an over-stuffed closet housing clothing in 3 different sizes.


Two of my tolerations include a bathroom drawer that holds many mostly empty lipsticks, blushes, and other makeup containers and the cabinet beneath that drawer which houses who-knows-what. I know it makes no sense that I hold on to these items. But I haven't been willing to get in there to clean those two places out. Yet, I know that once I commit and do it, my mind, body, and spirit will feel free.


Tolerating messy drawers and cabinets is the same as tolerating bad thoughts and outdated beliefs – both weigh you down and drain your creative energy. When you notice a repeating unsupportive thought like, ‘I'm not worthy enough,' ‘I don't deserve to have ___' it is important that you immediately pluck it from your mind and replace it with one of higher value and vibration. When you recognize and remove not only the physical tolerations in your life but also the thought tolerations, you will live a more vibrant, happy life.

Astonishing Results http://simplythebestresults.com/component/k2/item/32-astonishing-results http://simplythebestresults.com/component/k2/item/32-astonishing-results Astonishing Results

Astonishing results occur when you step out of your comfort zone.

Think about it. How often you do you take the same route to work or from work?

 

Astonishing results occur when you step out of your comfort zone.

Think about it. How often you do you take the same route to work or from work? I'd be willing to bet that you travel the same streets and freeways ninety-five percent of the time. In fact, you probably travel the same routes to and from so often that you don't even notice the individual cars and buildings along the way.

A week or so ago, I decided to step out of my comfort zone to attend a 7:30 AM book study group. This book study is unique in two ways – you need only show up for one meeting, and you don't have to read the book. The reason you don't have read the book is that someone else handles that and then provides a summary of the most important concepts. (This is my kind of book study.)

The book study also provides an opportunity to meet and connect with people that you might not have met in other situations. Because I stepped out and tried something new, I received an invitation to participate in the host's upcoming podcast. This is something I've been wanting to do.

When we do the same thing day in and day-out we establish patterns. Those repeating patterns make us feel safe and comfortable because they are familiar. But think about this. Staying in the same pattern, playing it safe, could be holding you back -– keeping you from experiencing something new and exciting? It could be keeping you from achieving greater heights?

Where in your life do need to step out a little more? Is it at work? Have you been wanting to learn something new, do a different job? Maybe you'd like to step out in your self-expression. Like learning to express yourself through art, dance, or music. Have you ever considered auditioning for the cast of a play?

Stepping out can be scary. Here are five ways to expand your awareness without taking a giant leap into the unknown.

  1. Change your route to and from work
  2. Purchase and read a magazine from an industry other than your own
  3. Attend a networking event and strike up a conversation with just one person
  4. Go to lunch at a restaurant you have never been to before
  5. Rearrange the furniture in your workspace or home

Simple actions like these can result in astonishing results. Try implementing a couple of them to see what can occur for you. You will likely be astonished.

Ta ta for now.

How I got past apathy and boredom at work http://simplythebestresults.com/component/k2/item/34-how-i-got-past-apathy-and-boredom-at-work http://simplythebestresults.com/component/k2/item/34-how-i-got-past-apathy-and-boredom-at-work How I got past apathy and boredom at work

You might think that earning a living as a professional speaker and mindset coach is a glamorous life. To tell you the truth, some weeks are more exciting than others.

 

You might think that earning a living as a professional speaker and mindset coach is a glamorous life. To tell you the truth, some weeks are more exciting than others. The exciting weeks often include travel to exotic places like Northwest Indiana and working with super cool people to dissolve the mental blocks that have them stuck. Yet, other weeks are not as eventful as the travel weeks.

As it is with many of my fellow speaking professionals, when we are not traveling or coaching, we tend to work in our home offices writing speeches, blog posts, and books, only accompanied by a canine or feline companion. (In my case, there are two high-maintenance canine companions, Pinot and Comet.) It can be a pretty lonely existence.

Recently, during one of those less eventful weeks, where there was little human contact, I started to feel apathetic. It was almost like I didn’t care about my work, my clients, or even the book I was about to release. The book release should have made this week an exciting time, but I wasn’t feeling it. Not only was I feeling apathetic, but I was bored. None of the tasks on my To Do List were remotely enticing or fun. Frankly, I just didn’t want to do them, so I didn’t.

Then one morning while I was sipping coffee seated on my office sofa (one of my many forms of procrastination), I had a thought, “Maybe I can change how I’m feeling.”

That causal thought was followed by a question, “What tool could I use to change my experience, a tool that would make my apathy and boredom go away?” I knew if I could clearly articulate what I was feeling, I could change it. The problem was that I didn’t have a clue about how to describe it. Was it really apathy? Was the feeling of sadness, resignation, or depression? Or was I just bored? I couldn’t figure it out.

So, I did what I often do when I’m having difficulty making a decision – I bypass my logical-brain and ask my subconscious mind to speak up. Other people meditate to get answers. In my case, I use muscle testing. It allows me to get past my conscious, logical-thinking mind and access a deeper level of knowing.

For those of you who are not familiar with muscle testing, it is a method to gain information by watching how a set of muscles respond to pressure. Muscle testing is a process that allows the body’s profound wisdom to answer questions without being influenced by an individual’s thoughts or emotions.

So, I tested. I asked yes or no questions to identify the beliefs and emotions that had caused me to feel apathetic. I asked questions like, "Am I unmotivated?" The answer was, "no." "Do I have a hormone imbalance?" The answer was, "no." I asked about four questions before I came to my first 'yes' answer. I asked, "Am I afraid that I will feel overwhelmed if I do all the things I’d like to do?" I received a strong answer, "Yes." "Am I afraid that I’ll not be able to keep up with the demand and will disappoint someone?" "Yes.” Do I believe that I am capable of doing all the wonderful and creative things I’m imagining?" "Yes."

It was at that moment, I realized that my unsupportive beliefs and fears of overwhelm and failure, were making me feel apathetic and bored. I wasn’t either of those things. I had developed a series of thoughts that caused me to believe that I couldn’t keep up with all that I was inspired to do. And as a result, I shut off my energy and excitement to protect myself. How silly is that? (Don’t answer that question.) I was holding myself back from performing the activities I loved. The actions that were actually going to raise my energetic vibration, enthusiasm, and excitement.

When I discovered the truth of what was going on, I knew I could change it. I cleared the false beliefs that were holding me back by using one of the twelve techniques in my book, Emotional Self Mastery. Afterward, I felt inspired, invigorated, and ready to kick-butt and take names for the rest of the day. My productivity was off the charts, not only for the rest of the day but for the weeks that followed.
 
Do you want to learn how you can change your unsupportive beliefs and emotions? Buy my book, Emotional Self Mastery, The Best Book on Regaining Personal Power, Self-Confidence, and Peace. Available December 12 on Amazon and Kindle.
