SHIFTing One Thing

"The freedom we are looking for is the freedom to be ourselves, to express ourselves. AND if we look at our lives we will see that most of the time we do things just to please others, just to be accepted by others, rather than living our lives to please ourselves. That is what happened to our freedom."
Don Miguel Ruiz - The Four Agreements

5 Guiding Principles of Success SHIFT-ing:

S = Self first -- its important to truly put yourself first - your self care is essential
H = Come from the Heart -- what makes you tick? Always follow your heart's true desire!
I = Inspiration to take action
F = FUN - if it's not fun, don't do it!
T = Trust your intuition, as it is connected to a powerful source

Here's to SHIFTing to have what we say we want!

Take the tme to acknowledge!

We are all craving it! We began life getting lots of it. We threw fits when we didn't get it. We still do. What is 'it'? It's acknowledgement!

Who is more acknowledged -- a 2 year old or a 30 year old?

Much of a no-brainer -- a 2 year old certainly! Why is that? They are cuter? They are more demanding of attention? True. And they are so vibrant when they receive it!

I just heard a statistic that Disney did a study on people receiving constructive feedback on perfrmance reviews. They reported 30% did something about it. On the other hand, when given acknowledgment for what they were doing right, 90% continued to do the behavior / task which got acknowledged and went on to improve it.

I don't know about you...I think I will be acknowledging someone today! I like the odds!

Relationship Improv!

Have you ever heard the expression, "Stop the Insanity?" The definition of insanity is doing things the same way and expecting different results. Nothing rings more true that continuously looking for ways to 'fix' relationships! The real truth: Nothing is broken. Everyone is great. Everything is great. We just need other tools to deal with them.

Relationships, both personal and professional, are the most complex activity that we humans participate in. There is no Relationship 101, 201, 301 offered in schools, and yet we are all expected to relate to each other easily. And when we don't, things get caught in resistance, judgement, opinion, making others wrong...need I go on?

The Rules of Improv when applied to relationships, can help to bridge the ever expanding communication gap widening in this world of high tech communicating. We are forgetting how to talk to each other.

This three session, highly interactive teleclass will give you simple tools to help you be successful in stopping some of the insanity in your life and attract the relationships, personal and professional that really work for you!

Learn how to use the rules of Improv to SHIFT the dynamics of any relationship in your life. These rules and the information you will obtain will help you to relate better to clients, bosses, co-workers, relatives, and even those significang others in your life.

This teleclass is great for you if you are single, married, partnered, or just curious! If you are having trouble connecting with Mr. or Ms. Right, with co-workers, the boss, clients, staff -- maybe you need to change the rules of the game!

Relationship Improv will assist you to:

Listen more respectfully
Pick up on subtle cues
Demonstrate trust
Value opinions
Be more authentic
Be more flexible with people
Build trust and express themselves more effectively

Answer: Untold millions! It's happening every day all day in companies, families, and communities.
