A Dose of Power Living…

Remember Who You Are

As Dr. Seuss said, “Always remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think and twice as beautiful as you’ve ever imagined.”

How do you see yourself? No matter how accomplished you are, the biggest Achilles’ heel for most people is the feeling of not being good enough. In our “look at me” society, it’s easy to get caught up in comparing yourself with others or to “ideal” (and unreal) magazine images. We can become our worst critics. For example, when supermodel Cindy Crawford was younger she wanted to get rid of the “ugly mark” on her face. Her mother convinced her to keep the mole that has become her trademark. Every day, take time to remember who you are. Look in the mirror and affirm that you are brave, strong, smart and beautiful. What you think is a flaw, could be a special “design feature” that makes you unique. You are one-of-a-kind and are meant to shine. You have been given special gifts and talents, and are equipped for any challenge. Don’t fear, success is right here. Live from within and you will never be without.

Until next time, remember-it’s your divine life, live it to the fullest. The power is in your hands!

With Purpose & Power,

Terri

7 Ways To Experience Peace Right Now!

Many people make peace conditional. In other words, they say things like “I will find peace when I make enough money,” or “I will feel peace when I work out the kinks in my relationship.” Peace becomes dependent on something external happening. In reality, peace is not as complex as one may think and it doesn’t have to be a distant goal. Peace is a feeling that can be experienced every day.

7 Ways To Renew Your Life Today

Just like a loaf of bread that’s been left out too long, life can sometimes seem stale if we let routine take over. We get comfortable with what is and ignore what could be. Being present is important — it’s the foundation of Power Living and experiencing the special moments in life. However, actively claiming your future is key to growth. Balancing the two modes is the trick. Read more to find out how to renew your life today.

7 Ways To Love Yourself

How committed are you to your own happiness? If you were dating yourself, would you be blissful or ready to break out of the relationship? Self-love is an active process of becoming aware of who you are and appreciating all aspects of what makes you unique. It is a practice of self-care and self-compassion that affirms, “I Am Worthy.” Nurturing yourself is imperative to what I call personal sustainability. Read more to find out how to step up the love.

7 Ways To Optimize Your Brain

Given advances in imaging technology, we now know that the brain is affected by every experience, thought and emotion. Brain stimulation can increase neuroplasticity (the ability of the brain to “rewire” itself) and neurogenesis (the formation of new nerve cells). There is no specific prescription that works across the board for brain fitness. Instead, experts talk about the following “pillars.” Read more to find out how to optimize your brain.

The Power of…

The Power of… JOY

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, ““There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behavior, like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us.” What makes your spirit smile? Are you experiencing at least one instance of pure joy every day? Do you regularly share acts of kindness? It’s been said that pleasure is in the body, happiness is in the mind, and joy is in the heart. Both pleasure and happiness are fleeting. Joy, on the other hand, is a fruit of the Spirit – a deep-in-the-soul feeling…  Learn more in The Power of… JOY.

The Power of… LETTING GO

Lao-Tau said, “…having without possessing, acting with no expectations, leading and not trying to control; this is supreme virtue.” Do you get upset when things don’t turn out the way you expected? Is your mind cluttered with regrets and resentments? What are you holding on to that is holding you back? I used to hang on to just about everything – worn-out clothes, old papers, even my previous job identity. I was following the “just in case” philosophy. Read more in The Power of… LETTING GO.

The Power of… PRACTICE

Matthew Arnold said, “Use your gifts faithfully, and they shall be enlarged; practice what you know, and you shall attain to higher knowledge.” What is your daily practice? Are you practicing peace or anxiety? Are you practicing how to succeed or simply survive? Are you putting into practice what you already know?  Learn more in The Power of… PRACTICE.

The Power of… CONSCIOUSNESS

Ernest Holmes said, “The Spirit can do for us only what It can do through us. Unless we are able to provide the consciousness, It cannot provide the gift.” What is your mental atmosphere? Are your internal dreams reflected in your external reality? Do you wonder why some people always seem to attract good and others are a magnet for misfortune? Learn more in The Power of… CONSCIOUSNESS.

Surviving in the Shadows: Voices of Change in India

My only hint of what was to come was the little girl in the parking lot scratching at my window asking for money. She kept her hand on the car as we drove away. I had just arrived in Mumbai. I was told that begging is a business in India and yet it still touched my heart to see this child in need. Although I did encounter my share of outstretched hands, it didn’t seem much different than the gypsies I came across while studying in Rome. The scale was just larger. As a Young Global Leader for the World Economic Forum, I was participating in a Learning Journey hosted by the Gates Foundation… Read more in the three-part series on Impatient Optimists blog.

How Faith Can Forge Myanmar’s Future

Despite Myanmar’s most recent conflicts being attributed to religious differences, the country’s deep spiritual roots may be instrumental in its current economic, political and social transformation. With over 100 different nationalities, 90% of its people follow Buddhism, 4% are Christian and 4% are Muslim, with others practicing forms of Animism and Shamanism. In advance of the World Economic Forum on East Asia, a group of Young Global Leaders took part in an Impact Journey aiming to explore the country’s diversity of religious thought as well as shared spiritual values… Read more on World Economic Forum blog.
