The Road Less Travelled

A path less travelled is not so much about milestones and destinations, it is more about the values you are honoring to get there. As you travel this unique journey; live in your values, trust your intuition, and act. This road will pave a path of happiness for you and the many others you meet in your life. – Barney Feinberg

Choose Your Destiny

Commit to Your Dreams

Until one is committed there is a hesitancy, the chance to draw back; always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans:

That the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way.

I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe’s couplets:

“Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.” – W.H. Murray – The Scottish Himalayan Expedition

Achieving Life Balance

“Achieving Life Balance is not to be stationary like a rock; life is in constant motion, balance comes from choosing intuitively the actions to take in the moment and freely taking them.” – Barney Feinberg

“How to Let Go and Get On With Your Life”

How to Let Go and Get On With Your Life

 Who hasn’t been worried about the future or angry about something; letting your uncontrollable emotions get the better of you, feeling stuck, unable to let them go?  You know this is not a helpful or healthy place to be but changing it is, “easier said then done.”

 Many would like to know how to just let go of that unwanted emotion and replace it with a value that honors who they want to be, such as happy or confident.  To accomplish this shift one must first recognize what they really want. 

 If you sit on the fence and feel that the emotion you are experiencing, such as worry or anger, motivates you to action then you will continue to hold on to it.  Sometimes you are choosing to hold on, other times these emotions are choosing you and you cannot escape them. A good gauge as to whether you are choosing them or not would be to determine how much action you are taking and how comfortable you feel taking it.  The less your action and comfort the more likely you are not in choice. When you notice that you are not choosing this emotion, how do you let it go?

 Your mind is unique; the way it operates is one of a kind.  Yet, like cable TV, you have hundreds of channels and being stuck on one emotion or channel is similar to your remote control not working.  What you must do is physically either fix the remote or get up and change the channels manually until you come to the one you want to listen to.  

 To paraphrase Yogi Berra, speaking of baseball, “Life is 90% mental the other half is physical.”  I have found one way to change your emotional channel it is to physically do something.  One excersise that works for me and can be done anywhere, is to get in touch with one or more of my senses; sight, sound, touch, taste, or smell.  Then I bring myself into the moment by focusing on things such as; seeing the colors in a room, hearing the sounds on the street, touching the bark on a tree, tasting the flavors of a meal, or smelling the flowers.  Exercise, such as yoga, is another excellent way to focus in the moment. 

 Be with whatever you choose to focus on, NOW.  When you have reached being in the moment, change the channel to a favorite movie, book, or experience that honors the value you want to own.  A favorite movie of mine is, “It’s a Wonderful Life,” chock full of values such as friendship, love, family, humor….

 When you focus in the moment you will take the focus off your worry or anger.  Once in the present you then have a choice; either go back to the emotion that is bothering you or replace it with a value you would prefer to honor which, in turn, will change your emotion.  This takes practice, like building a muscle; it can take time to master. Once you do, being able to choose the channel in your mind will open up a world of possibility.

Action Speaks Louder…

From Chaos Comes Order

The world at times can seem chaotic. What one day we take for granted can suddenly disappear. On any given day job security can be lost, good health change to bad; money once plentiful, dry up.

With change in perceptions comes the unknown which can seem dark and dangerous;
an area we are often thrown to avoid, wanting the answer; wanting to stand in the light. We can struggle here trying to get out, fearful of this unknown, but like a person in quicksand the more we struggle the faster we get sucked in. This fear creates stress and like a thief in the night robs us of our health and confidence.

As I talk to people who have lost their jobs and are fearful of the unknown I have found that some are seeing opportunity in their life transition. They have discovered a freedom which defies the perceptions of fear. In the chaos they are taking a stand that this unknown is allowing them to reinvent their life with possibility not desperation. They trust themselves and instead of running from the unknown are embracing it like a friend with a flashlight.

From chaos comes order. When you stand in possibility and confidence, surrounded by chaos, the order that evolves will be a reflection of that energy. Acting in fear will result in a reflection less likely to answer your dreams.

An athlete who thinks and plays in fear is easily defeated; whether they win or not the joy is missing. When you play with possibility and confidence you will be passionate to continue in the game; defeat only comes when you give up.

Embrace the dark as you would the light, make it your friend. Adventure and discovery come to those who enjoy being in the unknown and are confident they will find what they want. Use patience as your walking stick. – Barney Feinberg
