Our personal power starts to end the moment we begin to blame someone or something else.

It does not matter what they did, or what happened to us, it only matters that we allow the circumstance to dictate our reaction.

Our power come from our presence and our ability to decide how we choose to respond to any given situation.

Blaming and making either someone else or the situation wrong, merely takes away our ability to move past it.

When we decide how we want to be in the situation regardless of the truth of it, then we are exercising our most important muscle.

It is the muscle of choice. It is the muscle of our spirit. It is the muscle of our divine right to create our life anew.

Resisting what is only causes us pain and keeps us stuck where we are.

To acknowledge the truth of the reality of the situation yet not allow the truth to dictate our behaviour the surest way to build our personal power.

Being present to a situation that is unpleasant is a choice. Being present with compassion and love for ourselves is one of the greatest choices we can ever make.

So let’s stop resisting the reality, let’s stop blaming anyone or anything else, and let’s focus on what we can do instead.

When we shift from blame to choice we empower ourselves beyond measure.

Life is always a mixed bag.

It is a mix of what we want and what we don’t want.

It is a mix of what thrills us and what brings us down.

It is a mix of people we enjoy being with and people we don’t.

The contrast is always there, yet ever-changing.

We can’t get rid of the contrast, and indeed we probably shouldn’t because we learn so much from it.

The bag will always be mixed.

The key is to focus on the parts of the bag that we enjoy, that uplifts us, and that supports us.

The parts of the bag that don’t are also there for a reason. Let’s learn from them and not judge them.

Ultimately, all the parts of the bag make up life. They are all part of the whole.

So let’s have a little more compassion for the whole bag, and know that there will always be a mix.

What is it that pulls us forward into a better life?

It is not a better job or a better partner.

It is not more money or more contacts.

It is the vision we hold of our future selves.

How we envision ourselves in our future is what pulls us forward.

It calls us to do more, be more, and serve more.

When we see ourselves not only achieving more in our lives, but contributing more to the lives around us, that’s what inspires us to become more of who we really are.

We can only grow to the extent that we envision ourselves changing.

We only strive to the level that we see in our mind’s eye that’s achievable for us.

Our life is a creation of the vision we hold for ourselves and the belief that that vision is real and possible.

Can you see yourself a week, a month, or a year into the future?

Can you see the beauty you will create, the good you will do, the inspiration you will spread?

Time to envision more, feel it more, and allow it to pull you forward.

Being truthful is not about telling the truth to others.

Being truthful is not about not telling lies.

Being truthful is about being honest with yourself.

Before we can begin to beĀ authentic in public, we first have to be in alignment within ourselves.

How can we speak truth to our tribe if we do not even know it ourselves?

Too often we find people who will say one thing in private, and another in public.

Regardless of the validity of the statements, if we are not sharing the same message, whether in private or public, we are not being truthful.

Does this mean we have to tell everyone everything? No, of course not. What it means is that we are clear in our intent and with our presence. It means we are being the same person with our families, our friends, our business associates, or our tribe.

Our essence is what matters. Our presence conveys our essence. Our words reflect our essence.

The more true to ourselves about ourselves we are, the more true we can be to other people.

Responsibility is a word that gets a lot of use.

We are responsible to our shareholders, our customers, our family and our society.

We are responsible to provide value, to contribute, and to be productive.

We are also responsible to be honest, to have integrity, and to reflect.

Ultimately though, our greatest responsibility is to life. We are responsible to support life and be supported by life.

We are responsible to the planet, and all the various forms of life on the planet.

We are responsible to feed ourselves, not just our bodies, but our spirit, our soul, our essence.

We are also responsible for the energy we bring with us throughout the day.

Are we cheerful or depressed? Are we focused on solutions or problems? Are we supportive of those around us, or are we only concerned with ourselves?

There’s a lot of responsibility to go around, and it is not all ours. What is ours, however, is no one else’s.

Let’s be a little more responsible to life and a little less responsible for harming others.
