Staying Focused

focus7da50

We understand that in life if we want to achieve or acquire something, it is important to set that as a goal in our mind and in our daily lives. We then make that our focus and work at it on a regular basis to achieve it. But often times by doing it this way we experience stress, anxiety and lack of presence and the result is diminished performance. By always looking at your goal, you are actually pushing it away as you are referencing your position to achieving it and it feels like you haven’t reached it.

When we let go of the attachment to the object or result that we desire and stay focused on and enjoy the experience of reaching that goal, our results are much better. You are experiencing fulfillment at every moment and also experiencing patience. This shift in perspective is subtle and small but it’s results are huge! You stop looking at your progress and enjoy the process. Progress is just a natural result of staying focused on the daily act, the process of whatever it is that you aim to achieve. You are focused in the present moment and your goal comes with ease without friction, stress or anxiety.

The experience you encounter of working towards your desire or goal is what you want. It will be one of presence. You will be engaged in the process and your performance will increase – which, of course then, you will be more likely to experience the outcome you so desire!

Life Coach, Eden Myers, challenges you to focus on the process of your goal rather than the goal itself. She is here to guide you as need be in achieving your desires to do more and be more!

Healthy Body Healthy Mind for 2015

Running_Healthy_Man_Woman3_7937

As the new year approaches, many of us set new goals for ourselves to accomplish.  We aim to eat more healthy.  We put together a new exercise routine to implement for a physically stronger and better self.

Often times we forget about our minds and how they are truly connected to our bodies.  Many think of the two as separate systems and that they function independently.  Science, however, has proven that they are not two but one and every part of the body is the mind expressing itself through that part.  When something goes wrong it is usually a combination of physical and emotional causes.  There is strong belief in the statement ” As you think so you become”.

We truly are in charge of our attitudes and feelings but we cannot determine the outcome of every circumstance in life.  WE DON’T CREATE OUR OWN REALITY BUT WE ARE RESPONSIBLE TO OUR REALITY.  Like a ship on the ocean, we can’t direct the wind but we can adjust the sails.  It is extremely important to guard our thoughts and the things that we allow to enter into our minds on a regular basis.  It is equally important to make available “quiet time” to feel what your body is feeling in order to awaken our intuition.  Partake of positive and healthy nutrition for our minds just as we do our bodies and counteract negative stresses in the form of mindful activities as we do with physical exercise for our bodies.

Here’s to a happy and healthy new year!   Don’t forget to submit your story and why you feel you would enjoy experiencing a complimentary coaching course with Eden Myers at edenmyers1@gmail.com.  As a certified coach and wellness advocate, she strongly believes in paying it forward and is anxious to share the benefits of this course with you!

Be a Diligent Guardian of Your Body

Most people would feel bad about destroying the property of another person. Yet they are not kind to the very property that they have been gifted………….their body! Guarding our body, mind and soul is very important. If it is not a daily practice now, we must protect our health first of all by paying attention to what we put into our mouths. Eat smaller portions. A plate full of greens and whole foods with a diet omitting ingredients that we cannot pronounce is an excellent way to care for this temple we were given.

Along with a proper diet and a practice of good habits, we must also protect ourselves from negative information and people. We often fail in this endeavor as we let useless information and stupidity into our minds. By watching television and listening to the media, we allow the trite and negative to enter our minds ever so slowly. From all of this we do not grow wiser but instead we become less informed, and poorer. Feed your brain with positive and empowering information.

Take a look at the people we let into our lives. Are we allowing in those who are negative, those who poison our potential? Are we always allowing ourselves to be hurt? If so, these people must go! Don’t think they will go on there own for they will stay around as long as we allow it. At the same time, it is uniquely important to surround ourselves with people who are positive, inspiring and possess a kind spirit. Invite them into your home, into your circle of friends and into your life.

It is up to us to be fierce guardians of our happiness and our humanity.

Eden Myers, certified Life Coach of the Proctor Gallagher Institute encourages one and all to be especially diligent during the holiday season when energy can run low, patience can run ragged and stress runs high. Go with the flow, live in the now and share the love in your heart! edenmyers1@gmail.com

The Wonder of Being Human

people_together

The wonder of being human is that we have the ability to change ourselves. First we must realize this power that we have and then harness it. When we begin to make changes the reactions we get from others may surprise us. The desire to make changes is there but our internal beliefs may not be strong. Many family members and piers will have the same beliefs.
They may try to pull you back to your old way of thinking – to their way of thinking. They may be convinced that they are helping you. You must move forward in the direction of the growth you desire otherwise you will live in limbo and continue to long for a better life – the life that you desire to live.

Three things can hold us back. Regret, indecision and fear. I remember the saying, ” Sorrow looks back, worry looks around but faith looks up!”

Regret can haunt our thoughts. What if I did this……..I probably would have got that promotion. I should have saved more money. If I hadn’t given in, I would not have made that mistake or if I would have finished school I would be farther ahead in life. Get clear of these thoughts and let go!

When we are indecisive, we will encounter circumstances that are positive but we interpret them as negative. Focused intentions are important. Focus on solutions to a problem and write them down. Ask others for ideas and options that can help. It’s better than sitting around and worrying. Force yourself forward!

Fear is the power of what if. Thinking right away of the worst that could happen, we talk ourselves out of ideas and solutions. Don’t focus on the problem. Focus on the opportunity.

Have a good plan. Focus on it relentlessly and look to the future for resolutions!

Are you feeling stuck in areas of life such as relationships, career, lifestyle or health? You are in the right place. You can write the pages of your life to create the life you have always wanted.

Get Out and Get Busy – Facing Fears

Power-pose

We all experience fear from time it time. Different things cause fear in every one of us. It can stop us in our tracks. For most people it’s something to be avoided. A thing to move away from. It’s an uncomfortable place to be.

Guess what? Fear is actually good! Why is that? It means we have kicked into survival mode and surviving is something we all must do. Having the proper perspective on fear is important because we are not meant to live in fear and just survive. We are meant to thrive and live past our expectations. We are meant to do more, become more, grow and change.

Seeing fear in a new way will move us forward and become unstuck. Becoming aware and having a different view of fear will cause us to change our actions and produce different results.
Fear can stop us and if we allow that to happen, we will become stuck, thus producing failure – the very thing we fear. We stop moving, stop making progress and then our fears materialize.
Unless we are in extreme danger, fear is actually showing us where we need to go.

When we follow our desires and our dreams we are inspired. We can also be terrified by them.
It’s important that we face that fear, step into it, expose it for what it is and realize it is the information we need to move ourselves forward to action and growth!
