What You Can Do to Find Your Path to Success.

You’ve heard the term to take the path of least resistance. There is a reason for that. It’s the easiest and simplest way as evidenced through nature.

Water takes the path of least resistance. A river flows through mountains, hills and valleys and all the while finding the easiest way to flow. If there are hills and rocks in the way it goes around it. And another thing about rivers, there is a part of it that has a groove or channel where the water flows faster.

What has this all got to do with you? Picture yourself as a river. When you are using all your talents and strengths to your best ability that is when you are in your groove. That is when you flow. Ever have a time in your life when you were in the zone, hitting on all cylinders? If you look back you were likely not only using your talents and strengths but doing what you love to do. Wouldn’t you like to get that feeling back? You can.

Often times we get distracted by what other people are doing, wishing and hoping we were as good as they are. Instead you should be concentrating on what makes you unique and special. What attributes do you have that could be put to better use? If you want to get back in the zone, you need to do what you do best. It’s that simple. Don’t worry about what other people are doing. They are in there own river. Your river flows in a different direction and in order to get it to flow effortlessly you need to take the path of least resistance by using all the resources you possess.

Don’t know what they are? I can help you with that. Check out “Discover How Smart You REALLY Are and Boost Your Level of Success or Discover Your Five Strengths and Boost Your Level of Success” at www.yourtrueheartsdesire.com.

Hey, Did You Read the Sign?

Signs are all over the place. I’m not talking about the advertisement or freeway signs; I’m talking about the signs that are meant especially for you. You know, when you’re on your cell phone while you’re driving and ran through a red light or you reached to put in a different CD and almost hit the car in front of you. These are all signs. The sign is you should pay attention. The next time you might not be so lucky.

There are other signs that you might be getting but aren’t paying attention to. I’ll give you a personal example. In high school I always got A’s in speech class. When I went onto college I also aced speech class. I never gave this much thought or credit. Quite a few years later I took a facilitator course through work. For three days I listened attentively and took notes. On the last day we each had to give a presentation. After I finished mine the other students gave me feedback. They were shocked that I was so enthusiastic and full of energy because while as a student I was very quiet. My presentation was well thought out, organized and presently very professionally. I basically “turned on” when I got in front of a group. I realized much later that I received basically the same type of feedback when I interviewed for a position. They were shocked because I was bubbly, as they put it, and yet when it came to answering a question I was very knowledgeable about the subject. For years now I have been a member of Toastmasters International and I get the same kind of comments. I have very natural expressions and mannerisms. I exude enthusiasm and energy when I speak and that I’m knowledgeable in what I speak about.

The point with all this is that I was given signs of my ability to speak and express myself throughout my life but I wasn’t paying attention. I didn’t give it the credit it deserved.

My question to you is there signs that you have been given that you haven’t been paying attention to?

Life isn’t fair. Who said it was supposed to be?

It just doesn’t seem fair that your sister is better looking than you

It doesn’t seem fair that you brother is smarter than you, or is he?

Life isn’t fair. Who said it was supposed to be? In fact, it is not about being fair. It’s about doing the best with what you have. However, sometimes people are so focused on what others have that they don’t see the fine qualities that they possess.

If they did they’d realize that even though their sister is better looking and their brother is really smart- they have different qualities that the other two aren’t as gifted in. It could be that they have the ability to connect with others in a short about of time. Or that they have been blessed with the ability to speak well, to use well crafted words to illicit the response and emotion that they intended. These aren’t things that are measures in educational system and yet they are a tremendous asset.

A case or push needs to be done to address this omission of these under looked talents that people posses. Credit needs to be given to those who are people, nature, body, verbal, emotional, social, picture and music smart instead of basing someone’s intelligence strictly on logic which is evident in the sciences. Life isn’t just about science, math, and reading. Don’t get me wrong, these are all important. However, what about all the people who aren’t talented in those subjects? They go through the school system believing that they won’t be successful just because they didn’t excel in the core subjects. They aren’t failures. What about building up their self esteem by giving them credit for what they are talented in?

Everyone is talented in something. Sometimes you have to look deeper to figure out where you stand out. Ask yourself which of the intelligences you excel in. Pinpoint exactly what it is that makes that great. Figure out how you can you that to your advantage. Lastly, design your life around what you are naturally gifted in.

What is the Avatar Message?

If you listen closely to the movie you could to with any number of messages. Let’s see, there is the disregard and disrespect of another person’s way of life, how there are more important things than the possession of things, or your way isn’t always the right or best way. There probably are more but the one I connected with and had the most impact was the message that they were all connected. The trees, animals, plant life and environment were all connected through the source and that source was Eywa.

Eywa to me is like Mother Nature here. She is always in perfect harmony and that is what they said Eywa did – keep everything in balance, harmony. But the interesting part is that they were physically connected. In the movie they used colors and the cord receptors from the Na’vi natives to the animal to illustrate the point. Through this connection the Na’vi could feel the animal and become one with it. Everything has a life force, not human, but still a life force.

This is interesting because here on earth everything has a life force too. Everything is energy but in a different form. Energy never disappears, it just changes form. It always exists. The molecular structure of a rock or wood has movement (energy) within it but at a very slow rate. The same goes for the chair you’re sitting on and the pen you hold in your hand. Plant life also has molecular movement but it moves quite a bit faster. The interior of a human being has an even faster energy movement and yet to the naked eye it appears as if all these things are motionless.

It says in the Bible that we were formed from dust and from dust we shall return. The same goes for all living things; animals, plant life, even water recycles.

How we here on earth are connected is evidence through the Butterfly Effect which basically states that even one butterfly can have an effect on our world even though it’s thousands of miles away. You can read more about this effect by doing a search for Butterfly Effect on the internet.

We humans affect water. All you have to do look into the work of Masaru Emoto to know that our thoughts and language effects water at the molecular level as shown in the movie, What the Bleep Do We Know. But you don’t have to watch the movie just to view the crystal images that were transformed through music and language; you can watch this video and see for yourself.


What I think is interesting is since we are made up of 70% water, how is our language, the conversations we have and the music we listen to effecting our bodies? I also wonder what effect tattoos have on our bodies.

Are we also connected to our surroundings just like the Na’vi people? I’d like to know what you think after you watch the Messages in Water video.

Labor Unions Killing Business Success

Do Labor Unions serve a purpose? Yes, I believe they do because there are always some unethical and indecent business practices being done by shady and greedy employers.  Someone needs to keep them in check.

However, my issue is not with pay or benefits but with seniority.  The effort the unions will go to in order to guarantee senior employees the prime positions is in essence damaging the very business that is employing them. Not all union contracts are set up this way but some are and those are the ones I'm addressing.

Let me explain.  I've worked for an organization that by contract has to guarantee that the senior employees have a position even though a junior employee is by all accounts better equipped to do the job.

In the work that I do, it's all about using the right person for the right job. Seniority plays no part when trying to match the most qualified person for a position. What sense does it make to place an employee who isn't a people person in front of customers while making the employee who is great with people do back room duties?  Any reasonable employer would want to place the most qualified person in the customer service position, by that I don't mean senior person, I mean the person who has the social intelligence and disposition to work well with customers. What has seniority got to do with that?

You've probably experienced yourself situations where the person behind the counter should really find another line of work because working with people isn't their forte.  The smile isn't there. Without saying it, the customer service person leaves you with the impression that you're bothering them and that they'd rather be doing something else. Well then, go do something else that doesn't involve interacting with people.

What it really is saying is that the union values their members over the customers and the long term survival of the organization that is employing them. When you value seniority over the best qualified candidate, it becomes politically motivated over common sense. The contracts need to value the individual talents a person has to offer over seniority, when that happens, you end up with everyone giving their best. It's the American way.

I can understand an employee wanting some security in their job, however when employees realize that they can't "get by" by using the number of years of service then the customer wins. It increases the organizations bottom line and ultimately leads to retaining employees.  In the long run it makes good business sense.

What say you?
