Self improvement is a big topic. I find that it’s better to work on strengths than to focus on weaknesses. Remember the “F” in FARE talks about how what we focus on expands, so we want our focus to be something we WANT in our lives, not what we don’t.

Clients come to me with lots of beliefs about their past or their future. The past does not exist. It is gone - The only thing that exists is what you create in your mind at any given moment about the past- it’s either the good part or bad part, not the entire thing.

Last Friday I posted a Friday Photo with a quote from Stephen Covey - “We are not a product of our circumstances. We are a product of our decisions.”

I’m on a retreat with a few other women hypnotists - A meeting of the minds so to speak. I thought I’d post something a past client of mine sent me. She knows I love stories so I thought I’d share what she sent to me:

As a hypnotist, I’m keenly aware of the power of words. The last couple of weeks we’ve been talking about the words “I’m sorry.” A few of you wrote with alternatives in reacting to ‘bad’ news.

Last week we talked about apologizing in a way that shared our gratitude instead of negativity. What about saying “I’m Sorry” when we really aren’t sorry. You know what I mean - someone tells you sad news  or something terrible and you automatically say “I’m sorry”.  “I had to put my dog to sleep.” or “My child is going to have to repeat the 5th grade.” or “I have cancer.”  We shouldn’t be apologizing, but we don’t know what else to say. Sorry can be used to express pity, regret, or sadness, but most often the word doesn’t convey what we’d like. I’ve actually had people say, “There’s no need to be sorry. You didn’t do anything.” Sound familiar?  I’ve been thinking about how to reframe this automatic response and I thought I’d put this out there to you, my listening audience. Obviously various scenarios may require specific responses, choosing another word, perhaps. I’m wondering, what’s another way to express ourselves in reacting to ‘bad’ news other than saying, “I’m sorry”? Email me your thoughts about this and I’ll follow up with another blog.  Don’t forget to join me this Saturday and call in with your questions - online or on the radio - at 10 am for ‘Minding’ Your Health - Take Back Control on AM950 radio.

Last week we talked about the negativity bias. A past client of mine sent me something interesting that I want to share with you and I think it’s a perfect extension of last week’s blog. “I’m sorry.” We use these words in many ways (i’ll talk about another next week), but today we’ll focus on apologizing.

I attended an amazing talk this week by Vikas Narula, founder of Keyhubs. Vikas has created a software program that provides insights on influence of people and projects from informal networks within organizations. He talked about how typical hierarchies in organizations and groups cause division, but informal networks can serve to bridge those divides.

  It’s that time of the year when you start thinking about New Year’s resolutions. Resolutions and affirmations are effective when the conscious mind is in agreement with or trying to bolster the beliefs in your subconscious mind.

For most people, it’s that time of the year to talk about gratitude. In reality, acknowledging and expressing gratitude is something that we should do on a daily basis.
