Deluxe. Several times I was moved, elated, bouncing and feeling so happy being right here, right now.

 

In the last month I read all four Twilight books and I was so blown away by how it made me feel.

 

I’m sitting here thinking. Where have I been?  What have I been doing?  What have I been waiting for?

 

When was I going to start appreciating art, beauty and artistry again?  After I achieved what?  What does achieving have to do with appreciation?

 

I remember being a teenager and I was moved, touched, inspired, sparked, enraged and validated by song, art, film and theater. I would get enraptured by sporting events rooting for the underdog!!

 

Where did that go?  I’ve been so busy creating a life that someday I can enjoy, I’ve completely ignored my natural appreciation. Why has my hunt for success, fortune and fame been so all consuming?

 

Today I just got present to how The Drunk Monkey has owned me for the last 20 years as I chased the elusive destination called success. Now I’m here and I can’t believe I wasted so much time on it.

 

I didn’t need to live in a multi-million dollar house, burn through luxury cars or have 20 pairs of pimp shoes. I could have been appreciating, digging, grooving, dancing, singing, cheering on the under dog, and moved to tears the entire time. No stuff is required to feel and experience.

 

As I wipe the tears from my eyes, I realize that I’m happy that I went for the elusive prize for you.

 

I’m grateful that my heartache can be a marker, a beacon for you. So I can share with you my journey and tell you its not worth obsessing over the destination called success. No matter how much I achieve I still haven’t proved to the elusive “them” that I’m good enough or a part of the group or worthwhile or even of value.

 

The rules I was taught don’t apply. The promises that I was sold on didn’t get fulfilled. So I am going out on my own and making up my own rules.

 

Live now!  Appreciate now!  Listen to more music, roll on the ground with your kids, forgive your parents, smell the roses, stare at sunsets.

 

I know it sounds like sappy self help bulls*** but no matter how much stuff you have it doesn’t change your ability to appreciate.  And achieving success will not change your experience and appreciation.

 

I dare you to stop and appreciate everything you come across today and see what happens.

Life Coaching – Law of Attraction Explained

There are two ways you can approach life. You can approach life as if you are at the effect of things or like you are the cause of things. Both are true. The way you focus creates your reality. It’s clear that you are being the cause of your life because you are reading this blog about self improvement. The only question is, “Are aware of what you are causing?”

What To Do When Things Don’t Manifest – Life Coaching Programs

I’m sitting in row 20 seat E. That’s the middle seat at the back of the plane. This morning, not knowing what seat my assistant had booked me for this trip I wrote in my intentions, rather spontaneously, “I am so thankful to the universe for providing me with first class seats on the way up and back to Seattle this week… or something better!”

Even great parents screw you up – Life Coaching Program

No matter how great we think we are as parents, our children will misinterpret our actions, our words and our intentions. The Drunk Monkey’s job is to protect us from the scary world out there. Unfortunately, every single client we coach (no exaggeration) whether they had wonderful, kind parents or tyrannical, mean parents, they all end up misinterpreting something early on.

Cognitive Blind Spots and New Year’s Resolutions

Each year, many of us make New Year’s Resolutions but we can fall short of our goal. Often we give up before our brains have a chance to fire and rewire. Meaningful and resilient change is challenging but not impossible. Coaches, teachers, and mentors can be the missing factor that can help you push through the very human tendency to default to familiar patterns, even when a better you lies just below the horizon.

How Do You Love the Work That You Do?

How do you love the work that you do? So often the work that you are doing doesn’t feel like it is necessarily your life’s purpose. And yet, you were drawn to this work. If you’re interested in finding work that is your life purpose, and you don’t feel like you are there yet, there is a way to get there. You need to actually begin to accept, appreciate, and honor the work that you do.

How do I Stop Compromising?

I got an e-mail in from one of my clients asking this question, “How do I let go of the destructive need to please others over myself?” She says some examples of this. She says, “When I was in high school, I secured a part in the play, and then my friends got kicked out of the play. And so I walked out with them. In going to college, I wanted to go to Stanford. My dad didn’t know Stanford. He wanted me to go to MIT. So I chose MIT just to please my father.

How to Combat Stress – Stress Management Tips

There are physical ways to combat stress. There’s exercise, diet, meditation, things like that. 100 percent, yes. Do all that. But I’m not going to focus on those. The most effective way to combat stress is just to realize that stress is an illegitimate response to danger that doesn’t even exist in your life.

Why Your Last Coach Couldn’t Coach You and How to Make Sure the Next Coach Can

In life coaching, your coach simply wants the best for you. But your mind is not designed for change. Your mind is designed to keep things the same. Your mind is designed to keep things going in a similar direction, because your mind is designed to keep you safe.

Why Your Mind is Not Your Friend – Life Coaching Programs

As a life coach, my job is to help you remove barriers to happiness and success. One big barrier is your mind. I often ask my new clients, “Have you ever considered that your mind is not your friend?” Most are stunned by the idea of it. Your mind, which I call The Drunk Monkey, is just a biological mechanism designed to keep you alive longer. Your mind’s job is to help you to avoid danger or become better.

Let me tell you something. There is an elusive “them”. To everyone in this world who has ever felt stomped on by “reality”. And there are plenty of people who feel like they got a raw deal. Let me tell you this. There are one million reasons why they do and no alternative other than success to overcome it. There are plenty of regular working people who feel like they have been stepped on too and they work a 9 to 5. Respectable ! But no its not good enough anymore because of the elusive “them” who exist no matter what you “say” will always be better or have more money I don’t care what kind of things you say because yes it matters a hell of a lot to every one cept you because you are all ready rich. Why do you think Obama won the presidency. Because people are pissed off. They want change and they don’t want to stop and see a sunset because for them its looking like a pretty crappy rest of their life. They need change they need to get the hell in college and they need to be successful because the elusive them just keeps shoving their crap down their throats. The haves the have nots. don’t think that you would want to give your 20 years up and not be what you are today. You wouldn’t be happy for one freggin second. If you think you would be able to reach this zen point in your own life without the pain and struggle you are lying. Bull SH You wouldn’t have sustained happiness without having the resources you have now. How can you be a life coach???. I am asking you a serious question. This is my honest response to the article. I don’t hate you.
