It is impossible to outperform your self-image

Share this:

It is impossible to outperform your self-image  In his book, Psychocybernetics, Maxwell Maltz said, “It is impossible to outperform your self-image.” It is impossible to do better than your opinion of yourself. One example of this is the shockingly large percentage of lottery winners who lose all their winnings in a matter of years. Being mega-wealthy […]

We see what we expect to see

Share this:

We see what we expect to see  So often we see what we expect to see, rather than what is actually there. I remember the first time I went to Panera Bread. I went to get a glass of ice water. I filled my glass with ice and then started looking for the little water […]

Pavlov’s Dog and Our Brains

Share this:

Pavlov’s Dog and Our Brains  Pavlov and his dog are a famous psychology experiment about stimulus – response loops. Pavlov would ring the bell and then feed the dog and he kept repeating this. Soon the dog became conditioned to expect that when the bell rang, he would be fed. As soon as the bell […]

Trying too hard

Trying too hard  Whenever my setting in volleyball gets inaccurate, it is most likely that I’m trying too hard to give my partner the perfect set so that he can crush it. I just need to breathe, relax, have fun, and get my mind out of the way so that my body can do what […]

Gratitude for things we take for granted  We are members of Monroe Organic Farms (community shared agriculture). Yesterday I went to the farm for member picking day. I spent about 3 hours picking tomatoes, chili peppers, poblano peppers, jalapeno peppers, and onions. By the time I finished, it was 90+ degrees and I was hot, […]

Super frustrating

Share this:

Super frustrating  I’m not sure if there is anything more frustrating than doing what seems to be all the right things but not getting the results that you should be getting or that others are getting. This can just about drive a person crazy. But there is more to this than just what we are […]

Simple math of thinking

Share this:

Simple math of thinking  Most people are wishing for positive results but mainly thinking negative thoughts. This is a seriously defective strategy. The good news is that this habit of how and about what we think can be upgraded. When thinking becomes predominately positive we become happier, life becomes more enjoyable, and positive results become […]

Change happens in moments

Share this:

Change happens in moments  Of course, we want big sweeping instantaneous change. However, that is not the way change usually happens. Changing habits, ways of being, ways of thinking, ways of acting – this happens in moments. Moments strung together become minutes. Minutes become hours and hours becomes days. Focus on the moments. Appreciate the […]

Nice vs Kind

Share this:

Nice vs Kind   Nice and kind are not synonyms. Nice is a surface quality while kindness comes from the heart. We can act nice while feeling the exact opposite. At times, acting nice can be the opposite of kindness. For example, let’s say that I ask you to listen to a new talk I’m […]

Darth Vader’s less scary brother, Darth Cupcake

Share this:

Darth Vader’s less scary brother, Darth Cupcake  “Darth Vader” that just sounds tough, scary, and evil. The effect would not have been the same if they called him “Darth Cupcake”. That sounds silly, wimpy, and even emasculating. We can do ourselves a huge favor by giving disempowering, silly, or emasculating names to those characters in […]
