Be Content Yet Never Satisfied!Written by Charlene Rashkow
Continued from page 1
In my search I discovered a very fine line which could either turn my day into a more fulfilling, joyful experience or one that would prevent me from having and owning a sense of pleasure. I observed after making that big sale or having achieved at any level, whether feeling of contentment left quickly or stayed with me. If it left quickly, I would stop for a moment and give greater recognition to my successes in a more conscious way. It truly felt wonderful. Instead of keeping my eyes only on more, I began enjoying successes of day more fully.
It soon occurred to me how wonderful it was when I took time to acknowledge many delicious things that filled my life on a daily basis. Having practiced that for a while now, I've come to realize that life offers us a great deal consistently. But more important, I realized how often I had missed true meaning of contentment. Being so busy in search of more, I had often missed what was right there before me. Copyright2005

Failure is: Learning, (misspelled).Written by By Laura Burkey
Continued from page 1
Five weeks passed and I checked in with my client to ask her how her public speaking was going. She paused for a moment and responded thoughtfully, "Huh, it's funny, I don't call what I do 'public speaking' anymore. The experience has changed, and continues to get easier and more fun. It doesnít feel like work at all. Oh, and another thing, I am not afraid anymore. Not one bit".
The re-defining statement did more than change my clients focus, it changed her core 'self'. "I am a sharer" she had stated plainly yet confidently. Sharing has always come natural to me, and when I am sharing, I always feel a sense of warmth, grace and ease within myself. She continued to share that fear of failing no longer stops her from doing anything, because she really gets that there is no such thing. My client shows up to her speaking engagements, as well as many other challenges in her life, with an confident curiosity of what new thing or things she will learn and discover in activity she is engaged in.
So when you decide to spell failure as: L-E-A-R-N-I-N-G, you too can look forward to a new kind of confidence and fearless-ness swelling inside you. Go ahead and give it a try RIGHT NOW. Think about something you have been afraid to do (approach your boss about an idea, write an article, or speak before a group) and instead of worry about what you donít want to happen, turn up your curiosity! Turn it way up and know that when you do - you are on road, and moving in direction, to your success. How can you be sure this is so? Because you are doing and you are learning - and isn't that how YOU learned how to walk?
Begin it now and enjoy courage you have been longing for to pursue and live all dreams you have for yourself and your life.
