Well, Well, Well: A Deep Topic

Written by Sandi Lynn

Recentlyrepparttar facilitator in my classroom discussion group asked each person to describerepparttar 123915 three greatest problems that troubled them. As we did this we became so depressed that we could not completerepparttar 123916 assignment. We found that most of us were familiar, too familiar, with these troubles so sharing them made life increasingly disheartening. We concluded thatrepparttar 123917 source of our suffering isrepparttar 123918 corruption found in contemporary society. It touches everything.

As we consideredrepparttar 123919 source of our corruption one participant offered: "Aren?t we like a frog living atrepparttar 123920 bottom of a well and thinking thatrepparttar 123921 sky is a plate?"

We acknowledged that althoughrepparttar 123922 frog?s error in judgement aboutrepparttar 123923 sky brings little harm torepparttar 123924 frog, contemporary people believingrepparttar 123925 sky was a plate would obviously corrupt our thinking along with our relationships withrepparttar 123926 world and each other: - Our explanation for where water and air came from would be wrong. - The value ofrepparttar 123927 wind, landscape and ocean would be unknown. - Thoughts of Earth and Nature's beauty might be considered insane. - We would hold a corrupt view of howrepparttar 123928 world worked and would relate to each other accordingly. - Our life goal might be to train slaves to be strong enough to throw garbage out ofrepparttar 123929 well sorepparttar 123930 slave owners could live better. Some group members said that sounded too familiar for comfort.

I sharerepparttar 123931 frog metaphor here because it pertains. There is a similar but very real and destructive corruption in our culture. It erodes our every potential. It produces our justified lack of trust in our institutions and each other.

Fortunately there is an antidote for this corruption. A readily available process now exists that enables anybody to reverserepparttar 123932 polluted thinking that contaminates most relationships today. Our presently deteriorating situation will vastly improve if some open-minded "frogs" simply supportrepparttar 123933 process and its use. Is that something you might be willing to do?

An article: "Found: Nature's Hidden Voice?Good or Evil?" describesrepparttar 123934 Process and is posted onrepparttar 123935 internet. Many of us have witnessedrepparttar 123936 validity ofrepparttar 123937 unique anti-corruption toolsrepparttar 123938 Process offers. We personally experience and teachrepparttar 123939 Process and know its beneficial effects. We have observed its contribution to correcting deteriorated individuals, relationships and natural areas. We have documented that this process helps people reduce a wide range of personal, social and environmental disorders.

An Obstacle to Success

Written by Myrtis Smith

Whether you are starting a business, changing careers, or heading off on an adventure, it is natural for a little self-doubt to creep in. Do I really have what it takes to do this? Will people take me seriously? What will happen if I fail? Self-doubt can be difficult to overcome. It is quite possiblyrepparttar biggest obstacle that individuals must conquer in order to be successful. The world is missing out on many great inventions, talented art, and critical businesses because of self-doubt. People question their knowledge and ability torepparttar 123914 point where they would rather do nothing than to take a chance. But inrepparttar 123915 words of Mark Twain: "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed byrepparttar 123916 things that you didn't do than byrepparttar 123917 ones you did do. Sail away fromrepparttar 123918 safe harbor. Catchrepparttar 123919 trade winds in our sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

If you find your own self-doubt hindering your personal progress, try these tips:

1. Listen torepparttar 123920 people around you. Most of us have friends and loved ones that we can count on to give us honest feedback. Ask those people to tell you what they think are your strengths and talents. You will surely get a laundry list of things that prove you are more than competent enough to pursuerepparttar 123921 task at hand. But here's a tip: Ifrepparttar 123922 people around you can't give you those motivating messages, that's probably one source of your problem; you need to upgrade your associations and surround yourself with more positive, supportive people.

2. Review your track record. Look back on major accomplishments in your past. Recognize what it took for you to make those things happen and remember how it felt to achieve a goal. One of my greatest memories is fromrepparttar 123923 summer that I completed a 3-day 60-mile walk for breast cancer. I had sprained my ankle during training and it never healed properly. When I think back on that experience I remember my commitment to train every day and my determination to completerepparttar 123924 final day even though I was limping most ofrepparttar 123925 way. But most of all I remember how good it felt to crossrepparttar 123926 finish line. I am able to use that experience to push me through many difficulties that I encounter today in building my coaching practice.
