BE Your Best goals Makes you go hmm Personal Who We Are

Let’s Get Real about Changes…

In my quiet within, I have been sensing that it is time that I make this blog more personal to benefit those who are considering a life change or ten . What does it look like and how does it feel to experience change?

Since 2008, I have been blogging about life skills from different approaches, results people have, quotes, videos, and ponderings; some might say meanderings. LOL

All of that is available in this blog…with the caveat that I had to restore this blog and that backup file did not have the pics and links in all posts prior to 2020. As I can, I’ll go through some old posts to restore the links and pics.

All the info is still here. Search your curiosities about self-improvement. At the bottom of each page, Click a topic in the interest cloud or select a category.

As an engineer, I can easily do all the behind the scenes maintenance and make changes. But design!? What? Me? Opportunity: If you are drawn to what I write here and have blog design skills. Contact me. Let’s work something out.

Intent of sharing more personally

I intend to share how I felt during changes so you can relate.  Share when I was limited. What were my fears? What I did to break through those limits. How it felt and what came to me when I was expanding in life. How I fell into lulls in life and how I navigated out of them. Hopefully, you will relate so that it empowers you, enlivens you, and inspires you to go for it.

I do this to be transparent in how I have used these multitudes of skills from several systems and their approaches to self-betterment.

The feedback I get from students and clients, often, is that I am authentic. THAT is my goal at the core of me. I cannot live my best life and accomplish my purpose while hiding out. I cannot guide others from a false place. This life is so full of potential, regardless of age.

What is that nudge inside that you feel at times to make a change?

I invite comments, questions, and discussions.

“Wisdom comes from experience. experience is often a result of lack of wisdom.”

Terry Pratchett

My come from

I do not like to be the person up on stage for visibility purposes. I have learned how to be comfortable so that I can speak and train others. And, I do stand on the stage built by my tears, revelations, hurts, mistakes, risks, forgiveness-es, learnings, lessons, joys, loves, passions, adventures, manifesting, coming out, accepting me, and accepting the Vision I have received as my To Do  in life.

All of that plus what I am still pondering because of a great friend, J.M., who is my muse for viewing, connecting, changing, and working with the quantum energy that is vibrating within us, as us. Some new ideas are floating around in my head on how to direct this for our good.

Let’s get down to it

We can learn theory all day long but it doesn’t mean a thing until the rubber meets the road; until we practice it. The very process of experimenting with new skills helps to develop life skills in a way that works for you.

I tell clients and students to not believe what I say and present. Life is an experiment. Try it out and see what happens in life. Change a thought and watch the result. Modify and repeat. Through your experiences with these ideas, you will develop the beliefs that work for you and where you are going in life. Along the way, you are empowered with new life skills. It is a win-win situation.

Nothing in our life, externally or internally, changes without us first becoming aware that we can actually change. Then we begin. This can be simple. And it can feel insurmountable. It will seem less so once the choice is made to make a change

A beautiful reminder that change begins within each of us: Michael Jackson – Man In The Mirror (Official Video)

You are just one new thought away from having
what you want and being who you desire to be.

I really like this version by Siedah Garrett who wrote Man in the Mirror for Michael Jackson. She sang it at the Agape International Spiritual Center AgapeLive.com the Sunday after he died. So Beautiful

What is your inspiration? Where do you feel it in your body?

I am so grateful for the thing within my spirit that came to this planet to make personal changes; not just accept what is. Thankfully. I heard a very clear message at 6 years old during a violent event in the household. I was holding myself, on the floor, in the corner, door closed, crying. Shaking. Frightened. Alone.

I then heard a voice say: “Lamar. Don’t worry about this. You are going to learn how to do life better.” It was a thought that had the volume turned up loud enough inside me so that I would hear it. Listen. And heed it. Plus, it came with an overwhelming sense of peace and calm. That was not the energy I had felt in life until that moment. With these good feelings that swept over me, that goal/directive was planted within me. That voice has guided me in important moments in life. That is my inspiration and push to keep going.

We are all living in a Feeling Universe. Feelings with ideas register in our system. Ideas alone stay as untapped potential until an emotion fuels it into becoming.
