Embracing the Good, the Bad and the Ugly!

When we learn to quit complaining we learn to embrace life and that includes the good the bad and the ugly! We learn to stop resisting things that are “Happening to us”, we learn to transform our tendency to feel like victims and instead, we take full responsibility for our lives.

Writer Andrew Solomon has spent his career telling stories of the hardships of others. In this moving, heartfelt and at times downright funny Ted talk, he turns inward, bringing us into a childhood of adversity, while also spinning tales of the courageous people he’s met in the years since.  Solomon gives a powerful call to action here, a call to stop resisting our lives and to forge meaning from our biggest struggles.

What if instead of “finding” life meanings we actually “forged” life meanings because of (or thanks to) the hardships that are inherent to each one of our journey?

What if instead of complaining about what happens to us, we turned our struggles into inspiring lessons?

If you realize that complaining is a habit that robs you of enjoying and seeing the full potentials of living… why not use this month of September to establish a new powerful way of functioning, by joining the 21 Day Challenge to Quit  Complaining and Bitching at any time, it is free!

Becoming entrepreneurs, and not victims, or our lives is not always easy but it makes us feel fully ALIVE!

Maybe there is more that brings us together than we think!

Three beautiful minutes!

Thank you TV2 Denmark  for this video, I shared it recently on my english Facebook page.

It brings up interesting and relevant points about how different we are… and, despite those differences, the communality of our human experience.

When we get rid of the habit of complaining in our lives, we begin to create space to see the beauty all around us, and the beauty in people different from us. The habit of judging others disappears…

 

Join the “I quit complaining {…and bitching}”  challenge at anytime… it is free! Become part of the growing movement of people who choose to refuse to be victims of their lives and of others!

How to take action and go change your life? Interview by David Laroche

How to take action (2)

Some time ago I was interviewed by David Laroche who is France’s youngest motivational speaker. David was in the US on a road trip to interview experts like Seth Godin, Mark Victor Hansen, and Brian Tracy to name a few. And he invited me to meet with him in Beverly Hills.

The main focus of our talk was “How to take action and go change your life?”

I was delighted to share with him my own experience and the biggest lessons I had to learn on my journey to transform my own life from ordinary to {extra} ordinary.

The topics addressed in this video are:

  • Everything is created twice, first as an idea and then as an action.
  • The only way to create perfection is through imperfect actions.
  • There is no luck in this game. In order to create a good life for myself, I had to keep taking action even in the face of financial and personal struggles.
  • Why nurturing our inspiration is a priority (not a frivolity).

I hope this video inspires you and I would be honored to read your comments on this page!

The surprising science of happiness!

This interactive video is at once intellectually stimulating and funny.

What makes us happy? Harvard psychologist Dan Gilbert, whose book “Stumbling on Happiness” is a bestseller says that our beliefs about what will make us happy are often wrong

 

Definitely some compelling information on the subject, some of which may challenge your beliefs!

Winning or losing, finding a life partner, getting or not getting a promotion, even winning the lottery… all these factors have far less impact on our happiness than we think.

Happiness is synthesized, it is not something to be found… We are the only human species with a well-developed frontal lobe – the prefrontal cortex – which allows us to orchestrate thoughts and actions with our internal goals. In simpler terms this part of our brains allows us to act in accordance with our intentions. We can’t control our thoughts but we can control our actions.

 We can train our brain to find happiness within each and every one of our days and the 21 days challenge to quit complaining is an amazing game to play with yourself!

Gilbert talks about unbounded fears and ambitions. The prefrontal cortex gives us the capacity to inhibit these elements in our lives and to accept and make the most of the things that are ultimately out of our control. He even claims that freedom to choose is the enemy of synthetic happiness!

This reminds me of the sentence “please grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change” which stems from the well-known prayer by Reinhold Niebuhr used in twelve steps programs.  Most of our happiness comes from making the best of our situations in life. Abraham Lincoln famously wrote: “We are as happy as we make up our minds to be”!

Can we believe that not getting what we want can make us as happy as getting it? Gilbert gives some great examples of people who in hindsight found that they were happier than if they had gotten what they thought they wanted.

How to tap into your creativity?

This video is awesome! I was lucky to meet Sue Morter and to listen to her talks many times LIVE in Los Angeles (and to dance with her). She always has this talent for combining science, spiritual wisdom and inspiration.  You’ll be transformed by watching it.

When science meets what we intuitively know… we are what our minds tell us we are!

Do you feel that you are not a creative person? If that is the case you are not alone. We are all creative beings but sometimes we have a hard time tapping into that creativity. We feel stuck,  we limit ourselves and in the end, we can’t see the possibilities for creation.

One of our biggest source of complaining is the feeling that we are not self-fulfilled, the sense that we are not fully activating our lives – an intuition that we are living our lives half-asleep. Chasing after time and money, running after deadlines, feeling sometimes like a hamster in a wheel, feeling overwhelmed… and wondering if we are going anywhere.

When I decided to quit complaining, I learned to activate my creative potential. I learned to tap into my creativity to solve problems in unexpected ways, I learned to tap into my creativity to feel and express myself… that creativity transformed my life!

How can we tap into our creativity?

-When we step outside of the box (and stop thinking of ourselves as victims).

-When we create space through the heart, we then receive creative energy and that energy gets into our full human experience.

The human heart is more powerful than the brain in creating energy. These energy fields penetrate every part of our bodies and provide a coherent message that bombards the physical body. We are deeply affected by these energy fields our bodies receive and they become our thoughts! The thoughts that come from the heart space are the creative thoughts.

Watch until the end to practice deep breathing and movement exercises that will help you to release obstacles –  energy frequencies and thoughts – that may be standing in the way of your creative potentials.

How do you feel after doing those exercises?

Today is not just another day !

Today is not just another day… This day has been given to you. It’s a gift!

Open your eyes and look at the sky, at the face of people around you. Open your heart and see the beauty that is surrounding you.

Gratitude: The Short Film by Louie Schwartzberg from ecodads on Vimeo.

We are so good at complaining about all those times when life (and others) don’t meet our expectations. As 2016 is just starting, how about letting go of our resistance to enjoy our “not always very sexy lives”?

How about learning to embrace this life as it is. Simply beautiful and perfect (despite all its imperfections !).

Interview with Lilou Mace: I Quit Complaining and {Bitching!}

Throwback Thursday, I don’t think I shared this video with you yet… I had the pleasure to meet Lilou Mace in Los Angeles a little while back for an interview about my French bestseller “J’arrête de râler!” – I Quit Complaining!

The conversation was so juicy we decided to do a little segment in English for my US audience. Here it is!

Lilou Mace TV is a free webTV dedicated to awakening possibility, passion, and purpose in people all around the world. Since January 2011, Lilou has traveled the globe interviewing thousands of individuals throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, Japan, Mexico, and Asia. To date, Lilou herself has posted over 3,000 videos on YouTube and received over 30 million videos views.

While the magical interviews delight, entertain, and inform, each contains a deeper message as well: a belief that within every human being is the power to unlock their unique genius and find fulfillment in whatever they do.

Lilou is also the author of 3 books: I Lost My Job and I Liked It (2009), I Had No Money and I Liked It (2011), I Have No Religion and I Like It (2015)

Enjoy, share & please leave your comments!
