It might sound scary or unrealistic to just stop doing something you don’t like, especially without a backup plan. But creating the life you want requires setting limits with a fierce determination to be true to yourself. You have to weed out the stuff that you don’t want and increase the time you spend doing what you do like. This aligns you with the right vibration to attract whatever is in alignment with your joy. Alternatively, you could drop all the negative stories around what you find unpleasant and start looking for the good now...

Same result.

Steve and Jarl

Five star restaurants, luxury cars, famous friends, chic clothing and well-heeled zip codes are alluring objectives that you can spend a lifetime trying to accumulate. But after you’ve chased them down and experienced the cold impersonality of the gold in the treasure chest at the end of the rainbow, you know that they don’t provide fulfillment. Happiness requires nothing more than a decision on your part. A choice to thrive in this moment…

 

Lean into it.

Holding on to perceived injustices only hurts you. You’re the one who lives with the unpleasant feeling as part of your ongoing reality. You’re the one who recycles and recirculates the hurt by repeatedly reminding yourself of it. If it’s hard to drop the matter in spite of the clear benefit in doing so, remember that everyone’s trying to figure out how to best pursue their own desires. Their behavior is rarely about you, so don’t bear the burden of harboring resentment and bad will. All that will do is make matters worse. Letting go…

Lightens your load.

When you’re nervous about how something will go, keep visualizing what you want. But don’t confuse preparation with worry. Preparation involves taking steps, both mentally and physically, to promote the results you desire. Worry involves entertaining fearful thoughts to the point of uncomfortable anxiousness. If you take the actions you consider to be appropriate and then consciously choose to view whatever happens as an opportunity, not only will you be more peaceful in this moment, when the event eventually rolls around, you’ll be poised to discover just how it… 

Benefits you.

Your amazing mind can instigate miraculous healing or generate enormous stress; produce profound works of art or keep you stuck in a box. It can exhibit generosity, kindness and compassion or cause limitless pain and suffering. It can conjure up unreal boogie men or visions of joy. Your mind creates the quality of the life you inhabit. It’s the architect of your world. When you recognize this truth, you also realize that the world you create can be the one…

You want.

Steve and Jarl

Some days things are a little out of kilter. You spill the coffee, there’s serious traffic and you’re late. It seems like the world is against you. Since you really just want to feel good, reevaluate whether it’s worth getting upset over these inconsequential details. Everybody experiences setbacks and inconveniences, but how you hold them is what determines how you feel. When unwanted circumstances appear in your day, don’t carry them on your shoulders like enormous boulders. These details are not you. Let them go by allowing them to fly away…

Like feathers.

What does being perfect even mean? That you always please everyone, including yourself? Does it mean that you never do or say anything wrong? Since opinions vary, it’s unlikely you could ever fulfill either of those criteria. The only thing you can be perfect at is expressing yourself with complete authenticity. When you do that, you breakthrough to a level where perfection is irrelevant. Just you…

Being your glorious self.

Everyone wants to be happy. But the journey through life inevitably includes emotional states ranging from deep dissatisfaction to total fulfillment. And, even though you will experience the normal flux of conditions and circumstances, you can live in a way that minimizes the unhappy times and maximizes the good ones. The sustainable way to do this is to develop your sense of purpose and contentment from within. When you’re balanced and living in alignment with your core values, you travel through rough periods with equilibrium and sail through the good times…

With joy.

When you get to the end of your life, you probably aren’t going to wish you’d worked harder or been more famous. Legacies are for your ego. What will be important to you, is how much you loved and connected with others. Take inventory of how you use your precious time. Your mission isn’t to accomplish things that impress others, it’s to be in alignment with the authentic you. You aren’t here to do, you’re here to…

Be.

Steve and Jarl

As far as the Universe is concerned, nothing is good or bad. It just is. This truth can be a hard pill to swallow when you think that what you deem right and wrong actually matter in the big picture. Criticism and judgment are tactics used by the ego to separate and distinguish itself. Accepting what is and responding with love and compassion are tactics used by your essential self to foster…

Connection and awesomeness.

Steve and Jarl

When you really love something, it’s easy to develop an overwhelming desire to hold on to it. Appreciation is wonderful, but worrying about losing what you have reduces your ability to enjoy it. Since you’re actually already living the loss, your thinking can turn your focus into a self-fulfilling prophecy. The way to cure your fear of an unhappy, hypothetical future is simple: fix your complete attention in this moment and fully enjoy what you have right now. It’s called…

The gratitude switch.

Steve and Jarl

When you’re overly concerned with a particular issue, it’s easy to lose sight of the big picture. Stress shrinks your world and reduces your effectiveness. With your attention fixated on a problem, possibilities seem incredibly limited. Next time you find yourself anxious or stressed, think of something (anything) that makes you feel better. It’ll relax your energy and you’ll be more capable of formulating creative and thoughtful solutions. When you uncork the bottle of self-imposed pressure, you access the power of your…

True geni(us).

Do you ever get over-identified with your ego and act immaturely? When you do, it’s not unusual to say something that hurts or offends a loved one. While it’s perfectly human for it to happen, don’t let it go unaddressed. Own your part and apologize as soon as you possibly can. They’ll feel better and so will you. Next time you even think that an apology might help to heal the situation…

Make it.

Steve and Jarl

When someone criticizes, cheats or insults you, don’t hurt yourself by taking it personally. Anyone who behaves this way has problems. The best thing you can do is refrain from engaging your ego and distance yourself if possible. Set appropriate boundaries and let them know that there are consequences for their behavior. When you don’t add your energy to the situation by taking their behavior personally, you neutralize its effect. Don’t be surprised if your mature response inspires them to improve their own behavior, too. And, even if it doesn’t…

You’ll be happy about yours.

No matter what’s going on, you’re free to rise above the details and choose how you want to feel about it. You do this by identifying that crucial moment when the matter pops into your head and your mind starts wrapping itself around the issue. In that split second when you would normally be categorizing it and developing a story, make a point of saying to yourself, “This is neither good nor bad.” It won’t impair your ability to discern rationally, but it will help you to

Prevent emotional clogs.
