Are you feeling overwhelmed and looking for a solution? If we were to film you for one hour at your busiest time and then play it back in slow motion we would see very clearly that you may have thought that you were multitasking but actually you were doing only one thing at a time. You may flit from moment to moment from one task to another but you are doing only one thing at a time. So, if you are only doing one thing at a time where is the feeling of being overwhelmed coming from? Your mind! Your thoughts are flooding your awareness with everything that has to be done at any time by you. The solution lies in the application of organization and courage. First you must organize on paper what your tasks are and what their priority levels are. Second, you must have the courage to say no, not just to another person but more importantly to yourself. You must have the courage to say no to worrying about how it is all going to get done. You must say no to any feeling of reg ret at the end of the day for what you didn’t do. You must say no to endless thoughts of inadequacy and start appreciating what you do. Most importantly you must stop thinking and saying that you are overwhelmed. Feeling gratitude for a very full life is a much better thought.

Master Hypnotist

November 22nd, 2010

One thing I do know about you is that you are a Master hypnotist and it has affected every area of your life. “You must be thinking of someone else, Patrick!” No, I’m thinking of you and me. You see, we are all masters of self hypnotism. We have told ourselves what to believe based on what other people have said to or about us and we have repeated it over and over and over again until we take it as fact. If someone said something cruel about us at any age, we try to refute it with different thoughts each time it comes up but every time we bring up what they said it is exactly the same words and emotions. Constantly repeating the same words with the same emotions is the bedrock of hypnotism. Pretty soon what we totally disbelieved when we first heard it has now become a powerful influencing factor in our lives. Since you are a Master hypnotist, why not use it for your benefit? Pay attention to the phrases or thoughts you are repeating and if they are deleteri ous in the slightest way, get rid of them! Start using your power to say different, positive words in their place EVERY TIME! You are the master of your life and you are also the programmer. Program yourself to discard those thoughts that inhibit you and program yourself to constantly and repeatedly think thoughts that make you feel better. You can do it, you’re a master at this.

Your Power

November 15th, 2010

We have all heard about giving away your power to someone else and we take it as a real possibility and something to watch out for in case we just inadvertently give away our power to someone. It’s nonsense. You cannot give away your personal power any more than you can give away your breathing or your digestion to someone else. You have great power all of the time. I repeat -YOU HAVE GREAT POWER ALL OF THE TIME. You can’t give it away or throw it away or walk away from it. All you can do is use it or ignore it. If you decide to ignore it you will gravitate towards those who are using theirs and you will follow them. If you decide to use it you simply decide to follow your own intuition and the more you use it the clearer it will become. Will you be right 100% of the time ? Of course not but better to suffer your own mistakes than to suffer another’s. If two people in a relationship, whether it be family or marriage or friendship or work, decide to operate from person al power and follow their own intuition tempered with love and compassion for the other person, how can there be anything but harmony and growth for both? If we have been ignoring our personal power how do we start using it? Slowly is the key. If you suddenly try to use your considerable power when you haven’t been using very much of it, you will feel overwhelmed and you will rush right back to the comparative safety of someone else’s power. Affirm often each day that you are powerful and capable. When you feel indecisive, force yourself to choose and accept the victory or defeat as another step forward in using your power. Make decisions. Act! Follow your heart. Forgive your mistakes and don’t look back. You have always had the power that you have been searching for. It’s time for you to start using more of it. Today.

It’s Monday and you are tired. What are you going to do about it? Hang on, muddle through, promise yourself that you are going to bed early tonight? Or maybe, you’ll get mad at your work, your relationship, your weight or your finances or just everything. May I offer a suggestion? How about just this once you intentionally forget about being tired. How about you suspend all judgment on your life and work. How about, just this once, you say to yourself (and mean it) that “I’m finished with feeling bad!” “I am so over being helpless in any area of my life!” “It is up to me what I focus on and from this moment on I’m focusing on anything that is going right!” “I’m tired of whining at the bottom of the mountain. It’s time I started climbing!” “You are either going to see me at the top or you are going to pick up my crushed body at the bottom. I’m going for it!” “If I really am what I think about, then, by God, I’m goi ng to think the very best about me that I possibly can.” If you have any resistance in your life to being happy, get rid of it! You don’t have to analyze or figure out anything. Just set your determination right now to the highest level. Make a pact right now with yourself that you are going to ride on top of all the blessings you have and not cower under all of the worries that you have created. Know this above all things, YOU deserve to be happy. Smile, it’s a good start.

If you were cold and uncomfortable sitting inside a very cold, dark house and you looked out the window and saw that it was bright and warm and sunny out there, what would you do? You would go outside as quickly as you could! In other words, YOU WOULD TAKE ACTION! We have all been blessed with the knowledge and vision of a better life for ourselves. That might mean more money or better health or following our dreams. Everyone has these visions but only a very small number will see their visions come to life for one reason. The one reason is that most people won’t act. You have always known that you are blessed and gifted. You have always had the feeling that someone was watching over you. All of this is true but what are you going to do with it? An inch worm could cross the country if he kept at it but a person who puts off acting upon their dreams will never progress. Right now decide what is the next step that you can take in a direction of happiness and fulfillment and take it! Can you send for a brochure, buy a book, sign up for a course, turn down a dessert, make a call, write a letter, write down a goal, plan a vacation, make a commitment to improve in any area of your life? Every one of those is action. Every one of those can get you out into the warm sunshine. Go ahead, take even the smallest step and you instantly make today special. It’s the day that you started to take the action that changed everything.
