What would you love to be, have or do?

Many people today feel unfulfilled in their work or some area of their life. This impacts their health, relationships and the quality of their work.  Studies show that when people have a vision and link their purpose to their work, they are happier, productivity improves, profitability increases and the workplace is more enjoyable.

Yet while some may have written a vision and mission statement at a place of work, its framed it on the wall somewhere, gets passed by as a novelty – just words ...

Letting go to make way for the new –

We all know or at least have heard that we have to let go of the old to make room for the new.  This is the basis for a number of businesses – from Fung Shui and decluttering to recycling, consignment and “pre-owned” stores.

We refresh our bodies with sleep, and most of us cleanse regularly.

Yet what about our thoughts – particularly about past experiences that are painful, sad, hurtful or otherwise challenging?  Most of us haven’t thought of letting those ...

Dog Days of Summer

We are now into the last few weeks of the traditional “summer holidays” in Canada, and the back to school vibe is already here.

Have you taken time to relax and refresh over the last few months?  

Now, don’t get me wrong, action is essential to build lives we’d love.  Yet there is inspired action, and there is action based in old patterns of thought.

Up until a few years ago, much of my life was dominated by push energy.  I didn’t know any different. I was ...

The Envelopes

Pretend that someone is handing you 2 envelopes.

In the first is the list of benefits you receive by taking greater and greater command of your thoughts.  You are now a creator and are creating a life you would absolutely love – a life you design. 

In the second envelop is a list of consequences that result when we allow our thoughts to wander along the same paths they have been trained to be on – paths of not measuring up, of fear, doubt, worry, ...

Reflections on Garbage Thoughts

I really appreciate the services we have for garbage here in Canada.  A truck comes once a week and picks up old stuff and garbage and takes it to wherever it goes – the dump mostly I believe. 

Awhile back I was taking the garbage bins to the curb for pickup, and it caused me reflect. 

Do you ever have garbage thoughts? You know – ones that are limiting, unsavory, old, ugly, rotten, or that you’ve just plain outgrown or really ...

The Conductor

I once heard a story about a woman who went to the symphony.  She noticed the discordant cacophony of sound as the musicians were tuning and warming up.  Then, at a certain point, amongst all of that chaos, the conductor, picked up his baton and went “tap, tap, tap” on the podium.  The musicians stopped what they were doing, became quiet and were ready to begin.

The woman later asked one of the musicians how she could hear the conductor’s baton in all of that sound.  And the ...

Back of the Bus

Last year I visited the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit, and sat in the seat where Rosa Parks sat.  Now, I’m Canadian and we have a different collective story, though one no less challenging to some in that way.

Rosa Parks’ stand for refusing to go to the back of the bus is a stand that each and every one of us can make. 

On a personal level, we must take a stand to command our own minds if we are to truly live lives that we love ...

Making Meaning

A few months ago, I had a few experiences in the span of several weeks, that seemed odd.  I didn’t think much of any of them… on their own.  In fact, I thought I’d handled each situation pretty well, and seen them for what I thought they were (reactions of others 😊).  Then one more situation occurred, and I was triggered!  It was the proverbial the “straw that broke the camel’s back”.

I thought I’d let each prior incident go, yet my mind had gone into a different modality.  ...

You are Unique!

Do you sometimes compare yourself to others? 

People say, “well that’s normal”.  Maybe it is…

I don’t know how you feel yet whenever I fall into comparison “mode” it doesn’t feel very good.  So why is that?

When we compare, we are looking at someone’s outer results from a lens and our own feelings of inadequacy.  That’s pretty strange, if you think about it. 

Do flowers compare themselves to others? Other animals? I suspect not.

Now, comparison despair is very different than looking at others results, celebrating them and aspiring to ...

Eve Wahn presents at LSO conference

I was recently privileged to present a workshop, “The Power of Vision: 3 Keys to Creating the Practice (and Life) You Love”, to a full capacity room at the 14th Solo & Small Firm Conference of the Ontario Law Society. Like others, many lawyers are living life by default rather than design. We (like others) often have a mindset that says, “work harder” or “work smarter”. Yet push energy can only take us so far. ...
