Wayne Dyer, an amazing teacher for all generations

When clearing out mom’s apartment there were many books on her bookcase shelves from her nursing days. Her career is one of her proudest achievements, rightfully so.

As I started to pack each book into boxes my hand landed on one of Dr Wayne Dyer’s books. If my memory is right it was Change Your Thoughts – Change Your Life. This brought a smile to my face as I was finding more commonalities than I was aware.

There are a few books of his I read along the way. Two still on my bookshelves including, Getting in the Gap: Making Conscious Contact with God Through Meditation.

Maybe that was one of the appeals of Wayne Dyer who died late August at age 75.

#RomanceAwareness Month: Are Introverts Hard To Love?

We’re winding down this month’s theme around romance.

As synchronicity would have things Michaela Chung‘s recent email to her subscribers, of which I am one, spoke to me to reach out to her to offer some of her thoughts about loving introverts. Here is an article just for you, by her:

#RomanceAwareness Month: Are Introverts Hard To Love?

I am an introvert. I have loved both introverts and extroverts.

And yet, I often feel like it’s difficult for others to know how to love me.

Don’t get me wrong.  We introverts are indeed loveable, and I know that I am no exception.  The thing is, people often go about loving introverts in all the wrong ways.

Whenever I think of one of my extroverted exes, a particular image comes to mind.  I imagine that I am a little blue bird in the palm of his hands. He is trying to show me affection, but ends up smothering me with his large clumsy hands. He doesn’t know that you can’t hold on too tightly to an introvert.  We need space to spread our wings.  introvert-holding-hands

I don’t blame him.  Nor do blame the countless people I’ve met who don’t understand how to love an introvert. Extroverts have no frame of reference for our behaviour. Our needs are foreign to them, and our subtle ways of expressing them are easily misunderstood.  

Unfortunately, these misunderstandings can lead introverts to believe we are just too different, or quiet, or sensitive to love.  This is far from true.

#Romanceawarenessmonth How to love or fall in love again with your work, or business

Remember the movie “Romancing the Stone”? Whether you do or not is fine because this is not a blog post about the movie. This post is meant to be a metaphor of this phrase jewelers use to refer to a step to prepare a gem for use in jewelry.

How do we romance our business to turn our unique, maybe unimposing stone into some more attractive and significant jewel?

No matter what model or size your work or business is, it might be the time to cut or polish a stone into a jewel.

2 Ways Introvert Personality May Impact Career Goals and what to do

This article came from one of the many introvert authors or coaches I connect with online. Rather than my weekly round-up – find your introvert freedom this weekend with Dorothy Tannahill-Moran’s insights on:

2 Ways Introvert Personality May Impact Career Goals and what to do

If you’re reading this, chances are you are an Introvert, or think you are. That probably means you have some idea of specific behaviors associated with your personality.

The question I would like you to ponder about your personality is: When or where is your introversion creating issues in your career?

I believe it’s important for you to understand as much as you can about your Introvert personality. I also think you need to have awareness of where it might not be serving you so you can pursue meaningful improvements.

In my work with “our type” of career clients, I started seeing some trends of challenges that were limiting their professional potential. I’d like to bring these to your attention for some self-awareness and at the same time, offer some solutions.[Continue Reading…]

When Will You Dump Your Significant Jerk?

It’s another one of those bizarre holidays to celebrate! Dump Your Significant Jerk is both a day and a week celebration, just in case you need a while to work up the courage.

Dump Your JerkWhen will you dump your significant jerk?

This holiday launches the week before Valentine’s Day. Each is a total opposite of the other and yet, they do go hand in hand.

We might be a jerk to others, I hope I’m not and I certainly don’t have these people as friends.

Or we might be a jerk to ourselves. In either situation, we need to know how to identify either the jerk around us or the jerk within us.

Can’t we all be a jerk at times?

Or we talk to our self like we are one?

Here’s my own introvert perspective on how to say good bye to either in our life because being a jerk knows no type style boundaries.

But maybe someone in our life is a jerk. Certainly, if you have a boyfriend or girlfriend you want to say goodbye to, then consider this week as your perfect opportunity.

But I’m too long married for this! Besides my husband is quite lovable, and far from a jerk, most days. He even does the dinner dishes.

But it could be your chance to say “hasta la vista.” [Continue Reading…]
