Power of Story Telling - the power is in your story

coaching, podcasts No Comments »

Those who do not have power over the story that dominates their lives, the power to retell it, rethink it, deconstruct it, joke about it, and change it as times change, truly are powerless, because they cannot think new thoughts. —Salman Rushdie

We are all born story tellers.  We tell stories about our life, our families, our careers, our present, past and future, where we came from and where we are going.  We learn, socialize and communicate by sharing stories, funny stories, sad stories, angry stories, happy stories. Our stories are how we creatively convert our lives into more powerful and meaningful experiences.  However if we tell our selves the same small limiting story, then we will live a small limiting life.

What are some of the stories we tell ourselves?

• I have no choice.
• It’s just the way things are
• Why does this always happen to me?
• I am just not lucky enough.
• I just keep attracting the same type of partner in my relationships.

Are you sick and tired of hearing yourself repeat the same excuses and justifications all rolled up into a tiring storyline?
Don’t you wish you could just get rid of the old worn out script?
Are you ready to let go of the drama?

Power vs Empowerment

podcasts 3 Comments »

Virginia Woolf once said “To enjoy freedom we have to control ourselves.”

To empower is to call forth the power within.   Empowerment is not about giving people power, they already have it - their strengths, talents, skills, abilities, experiences, knowledge and their wisdom. Empowerment depends on strong beliefs, faith and trust in someone’s potential, holding a vision for them even when they can not see it for themselves.
Empowerment is the process of developing our personal power - responsible choice - so that we control our own life,  leading to personal freedom.  Responsible Choice is one of the essential skills you will need to create authentic power.

Join me on and Empowering Space - Your Hour of Power as my guest Sheila Radha Conrad of Life Mastery Skills and myself speak about power versus empowerment. Thursday 22nd October at 8:00pm EST www.blogtalkradio.com/empoweringspace

  • What is empowerment?
  • What is the meaning of power?
  • what is true authentic power?
  • How can I recognize when I am stuck in victim mode?
  • How can our language rob us of our power?
  • What competencies need to be developed to live an empowered life?
  • Are you a Victim or Creator in your Life?

Power of self acceptance - loving who you are

, , , , articles, podcasts No Comments »

vWe see things not as they are, but as we are….Immanuel Kant

  • Why is it important to accept myself just as I am?
  • How can I accept myself when I am in a negative space?
  • How can I accept myself when I know I am insecure?
  • How do I know whether or not I accept myself?
  • What is the difference between self awareness and self acceptance?

The beliefs we have can shape our entire lives and we may never know what they are. Find them. Then shape them so they work FOR you. Your self image is the lens through which you see the world and upon which you base all your decisions.  Your perception is a projection and the world is a mirror.

Join me Lydia Mattison host of an Empowering Space- Your Hour of Power on Thursday 20th August 2009, with my special guest joining me for a second time, Dr. Sheila Radha Conrad as we discuss the Power of Self Awareness.

Sheila ’s titles are diversified: a Spiritual Guide, Philosopher, Truth Seeker, Aritist, Dancer, Lover of Life.  She describes herself as a seeker of truth, equality and human justice. She has been a transformation counselor for 36 years.  Her purpose is to assist people in coming to clarity and alleviating their suffering, so their innate joy, wisdom, and beauty will arise.

What is the balance point between self-acceptance and personal growth, wanting to grow and improve ourself?

Self acceptance - accepting yourself - the good, the bad and the ugly, without guilt or a sense of inadequacy versus setting goals and wanting to evolve and grow and experience something even better than you experience now?

How do we resolve this conflict?

What do we accept?

What do we change?

The Self Principle according to Robert Holden is an essential key to potential, and talent, transformation and growth, success and happiness.  “The Self Principle states unequivocally that: the quality of your relationship with yourself determines the quality of your relationship with success, happiness and love, God, money, time, health, luck and everything.”...Success Intelligence - Robert Holden Phd.

  • What is the relationship you have with yourself at this moment?
  • How is that mirrored in your other relationships and your environment?
  • How do the beliefs you hold about yourself create your reality?
  • What beliefs have you accepted about yourself as truth?

Power of self awareness- Awakening the inner self

, , inspirational moments, podcasts No Comments »
  • Who am I when I am alone?
  • What have I given up on in my life?
  • How do I sabotage myself?
  • What are my strengths and weaknesses?
  • How do I learn?
  • If I knew I could not fail, I would……
  • If I could do anything in the world, it would be…..

How well do you really know yourself? Are you aware of your thoughts, your beliefs, your motivations? Why do you choose to do some of the things you do? How do your thoughts and words impact your emotions? What is the impact of your words on others?

Developing self awareness does not happen through reading self help books.  This may help, as it opens your mind to new thoughts,  ways of thinking,  and new perspectives, but who is really the expert. YOU.

Developing self awareness is a skill that requires patience, persistence, presence, and compassion. Self awareness is a practice. Through inquiry, we increase our power of observation.

“Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is enlightenment.” - Tao- Tzu
