Here are a few diverse posts that hilight interesting perspectives on how to be at our best (or avoid being at our worst).
First up, Mark over at the Never Eat alone blog talks about overcoming shyness. I love this line:
I've often decribed myself as a founding member of the "dread going, but glad I went" society.
Me too! Oh, how I dread social events, but then I am glad when I nudge myself out.
From the Achieve-IT! blog comes this post called, 10 Steps You Can Take to Guarantee Failure. I like this one:
5. Don't Do - Talk - Because talk is easier than action, this step one of the easiest steps for you to take. Try to fill up as much of your day with socializing as possible. Talk about all the things you will do someday or that you were gonna do. Just make sure you don't mess it up by doing anything productive. Action is your enemy. Embrace your excuses!
Funny.....I get the point here and you know I am a HUGE fan of being in action and unstoppable. The right conversations, however, can also be powerful. Even so, all talk and no action will not cut it.
And here's a review of a DVD and book from Steve Pavlina (The DVD is The Secret and the book is Ask and It is Given). It's intriguging and the book sounds like something I would like. I must admit that I find the whole thing of people who channel other people a bit unsettling and don't quite know what to make of it. Here's an interesting quote from Steve's post:
If you feel happy, joyful, passionate, or otherwise positive, you’re successfully thinking about what you want. If you feel fearful, depressed, angry, or otherwise negative, you’re thinking mainly about what you don’t want, so you’re using the law of attraction destructively. Hence, at any given time, you can simply check your emotional state to determine whether or not you’re in or out of alignment.
Great inspiration for the weekend!
