GRATITUDE is Always the Answer

Pam Grout is the amazingly awesome author of #1 NY Times Bestseller E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments that Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality, and yesterday I had the pleasure of speaking with her.

I told her about a young woman I met (who, interestingly, stumbled upon me because of a comment I left on Pam’s blog. Whaddaya know!) who is struggling with feeling depressed and worries that she will never feel better again. Lana, which is not her real name, said she’s “tried everything” and nothing seems to work. We had a good conversation and I gave her a few suggestions, which should help.

I asked Pam what she would suggest for someone who is really feeling STUCK (physically, emotionally, financially, creatively…) and she said, without question,


When we shift our focus away from what’s wrong and towards what’s right, our reality shifts, almost immediately. Our problems might not instantly disappear, (unless they do) but they do begin to improve, almost immediately.

Pam said “If you have a closet with a change of clothes and a refrigerator to keep your food cold, you’ve won the lottery! And the best way to create “riches” is to see and appreciate all the blessings you already have, like the sun coming up and your heart beating…”

She went on to say “Certain things do need our thought, so spend a certain percentage of time thinking about those things, but then spend an equal percentage of time thinking about the possibilities. We only continue to create the same-old-same-old because we continue to punctuate it in our mind; we continue to think about it constantly, when there is so much more that is possible.”

And there you have it~ Gratitude is the answer. It is always the solution to the problem. If in doubt, just ask Pam Grout. laughter In fact, her newest book, (with a kick-butt title, which I promised not to share) which is due out soon, is

Annoyed? Think INSIDE the Box

Last week in my Outwitting the Devil classes, we discussed something the devil says about Definiteness of Purpose, which is essential for our success. He says:

“Anyone who submits to annoyance by things he does not want is not definite. He is a drifter.”
(FYI, being a drifter is not a good thing.)

My Bad Day was a Great Day~ Relatively Speaking

Two weeks ago I did something absolutely terrifying~ a webinar.

A webinar is like a teleseminar, except instead of speaking into a telephone, you speak into a microphone on your computer. And instead of being invisible, participants can actually see you and your slides.

Unless they can’t. Continue reading
