Nemo, Upbringings and Comparisions

1
  1. What does Dory from the Disney movie “Finding Nemo” have to do with human being upbringings and comparisons?
     I love sitting down with people with different backgrounds  and upbringings. It fascinates me to learn about their path and journey to where they are today. Yesterday I had a fantastic meeting with Jenifer M. and she mentioned something she has learned that really is quite impactful that I asked if I could share it.
    “Don’t compare your insides to others outsides”.
    Love that! Why do we compare ourselves to others? We have no idea what path and journey they are on and if they are “living their truth”. Things might look all fine and dandy on the outside but I’ve realized, through my coaching and training practice, that we all have things we are working on…myself included. :-)
    So in the words of the great “Dory” from the movie Finding Nemo,
    “Just keep swimming” aka  Stand Up And Lead

Dost thou love life?
Then do not squander time,

We all have a gift, it is the ones who follow it that truly prosper…in more ways than one, and I don’t just mean materially prosper…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  Well Said Mr. Jobs.
I find it interesting for me personally that every time I tend to stray away from my purpose and don’t follow my Intuition things arise that I really don’t want, but when I listen to my heart and my intuition everything aligns and opportunities present themselves that normally would not occur. It takes courage, but I believe you can make it happen for yourself as well. :-)

It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.” – Theodore Roosevelt

 

 

Wise words and another great message from Mr. Kirk West. Thank you Kirk!
What do you all do to “Battle Uncertainties” in your life?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This reminds me of a combination of two great men I have had the honor of knowing in my world. Both own their own business and do just as the note suggests. They have great hearts, have found their passion and give of themselves , in service to help others. A wonderful lesson for us all to take with us as we go throughout our days.

"You are so worth it, go for it Today!" - Chris Teehee

Inspirational Notes and Inspirational Quotes – July 19, 2012

Most of the shadows of this life are caused by our standing in our own sunshine.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Today I challenge you. I challenge you to step into the sunshine, to “Go for it” as the sticky below from Chris Teehee suggests. You are worth it and the world deserves to see you shine. It is when you shine that you unconsciously give others the power within themselves to shine as well. It is a ripple effect that starts when you decide to Stand Up And Lead for yourself, for the power and passion you have within to make a difference for you and thus the world at large. It starts with one, why not you?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I heard this from a good friend the other day and I loved it so much that it truly deserved to be on a sticky note. :-)
