Robert's insights & revelations as he shares his message.
The promise of the winter season is revitalization. It’s a time when things slow down. It’s a time to take inventory. A time to rest!
Have you made time to rest today? It’s in a resting mode that we notice the power of our breath! Are you holding your breath while reading this blog? I invite you to take in love and blow out fear, concern, anxiety, doubt, confusion, chaos, hurt, disease, disgust, indifference or pain!
Even leaders need to take a breath! Make time to stop and feel the power of your breath. It’s a life sustaining gift! Feel your lungs expand. Feel your heart rate quicken and then settle into a new rhythm. Notice if your thinking clears! And if you feel relaxed!
During the Fall, change is in the air. This maybe a perfect time to change or alter your connection to your breath.
Are you from the great state of confusion? The state of lack? The state of clarity? The state of happiness? Or the state of wellness?
When was the last time you stopped and checked your “state of being?” Our emotions are wonderful gifts! They tell us what’s going on in our lives. If we’re feeling happy then we can look at the behavior or choices which support the experience of happiness. If we’re feeling confused the same holds true!
Sometimes we refuse or are scared to leave our state! We make up if we leave the state of happiness we’ll never feel it again. Or If we travel outside of the state of denial we won’t know what to do and we’ll die. Human’s love predictability! And we will stay in a state we know doesn’t honor us or even does us harm because it’s familiar.
I offer you check the state you’re “reppin” (representing) and make sure it reps you back in a way that honors the gift you are to the world! Be willing to leave everything and move for the sake of your health. You are responsible for your current state of being. “To be or not to be?” This is your question!”
Take a breath!
A talent is a natural ability to do something. Someone sings well with no formal training. Another person plays an instrument by ear. Yet another can speak effortlessly in public. And still another person connects easily with children. Our talents are the things we do well without working hard. They foster a sense of satisfaction, pride and accomplishment. Our talents serve one of many gifts we have to share with the world. Talents are designed to take us to far off places, help us build relationships and increase our value and worth. The ways in which our talents can be used seems to have no end-no boundary! Meaning they weren’t created with limitations. However, in many human moments we’ll create situations and experiences which support us in abandoning our gifts. Some tells us we aren’t good at singing, we believe it and put down our singing talent. A teacher suggests we need to study harder, we make up we’re stupid and put down the gift of mathematical computation. A coach says our jump-shot needs work, or our dive made too big a splash or our cheer doesn’t have enough energy and for some reason we interpret that comments as, “I’m not good enough.” and from that one faulty interpretation we bring out the shovel and spend countless hours burying our talent. We’ve done our best to put a limit on something which is limitless. A personal act of treason! A self inflected wound! A denial of self! What if we got that our talent is our superpower! And when used for good (in service to others) we’ll be a hero to someone; not because we seek that title but as a result of the limitless ability of our talent to help, assist, nurture, heal, aid and inspire! What’s your talent? Are you using it to serve another? Where do you envision it taking you? Can you handle the truth that your talent can take you further than you can envision? Can you handle the responsibility of developing your talent? Are you open to the idea that using your talent fosters happiness, peace, self-love, self-worth? Can you embrace the notion that you may have multiple talents and each one is multiplied by limitless possibilities? So, how might you use your talents today? “I don’t know” is an unacceptable response given that your talent has no boundaries!!
