What do we need to do in order to be more successful?

Tweet In order for us to be more successful requires our first determining what is it that we want to accomplish.  In other words, we need to make a decision and establish a reasonable goal that we can accomplish within a reasonable period of time.   We may first think we have to make a list of all things we need to do to complete our project.  We may then look at the calendar and see when we are available to do the associated tasks.  And if we are really determined and focused on accomplishing our goal, at some time we …

Happiness is Your Natural State

Tweet Happiness exists in everyone.  Happiness and love are your natural state of being.  All the happiness that you can possibly imagine exists within your very Self being right in this moment.  This is good news!  The happiness that we are seeking is right where we are says Lester Levenson, founder of the Release® Technique method.  We may mistakenly believe that happiness comes to us via people, places, or in things.  These beliefs cause us to look for happiness where it isn’t.  Anything we perceive as making us happy can only be enhanced once we know what real happiness is …

Turning failure, disappointment, and frustration into accomplishment!

Tweet What if failure, disappointment and frustration are only a perception?  What if so called failures are actually launching pads for incredible motivation and inspiration?  What if the only thing that is stopping us from turning our perceived failures into accomplishment, is simply a decision?  Truthfully, anytime we accept apparent setbacks as an opportunity to achieve something greater gives us a new point of view… a new focus… and a new adventure.  If we are motivated to overcome the apparent setback, we’ll find a way to move beyond the apparent limitation.  If we are lacking motivation or feel defeated, we …
