Morning Mindfulness - Two Positive Minutes to Start Your Day

This podcast is about mindfulness. No, no, no, not about just sitting and doing nothing and emptying your mind. That is not mindfulness, that would be mindlessness. But we are talking about mindfulness. It is about being in the moment. It is about paying attention. It is about nonjudgmental attitude. It is about awareness. It is about making wiser decisions.

Quite a few hears ago I watched a movie Phenomenon with John Travolta. In that movie something happened to his brain, and all of a sudden he became a genius reading several books a day, learning language in 20 minutes. Wouldn’t that be nice?..

One of the frequent questions I’m asked is about controversy between chasing the dream for greater live vs. being happy with what we have. Before I answer, I tell you a tale...

I can recommend a couple of things. One, I can guarantee that no matter where you are in life, you can do better. This is what champions do. They strive for a little better every time. Use a coach if you don’t know how. Two...

I like looking for some wisdom everywhere I go. So today is another episode of my extraordinary mindfulness, so to speak. And this one comes out of the shower. Wait, wait, I won’t say anything bad!..

Have you ever wished you had a magic pill? For anything. For personal and financial success, for health, for fitness. I know many people who’d love to have it. I think the history of magic pill goes at least several thousands years back, whether it was a pill or a potion, or whatever...

No matter where in life we are, we have a tendency to compare ourselves to others, and put “right or wrong” labels on everything. This is quite obvious when people...

I often hear something like, “Oh, the traffic was horrible!” I can totally relate to that because I used to be that way too. But I realized that if I keep thinking about how bad it is...

Most of us are talking a lot every day. What are we saying?
Working with people, l had to train myself to filter every word coming out of me. Some of these things I learned from not so pleasant experience...

Do you ever think how you sign your name? I know in most of cases I don’t. I just sign it. How about signing it with your other hand? Ok, ok, let’s do it with your writing hand, but sign it backwards. Can you easily do it?

Sometimes people can make life changing decisions based on this 2-dimensional snapshot of what happened. They throw assumptions and they may not even bother to come closer and see, what has exactly happened there...

Some people like cats, they just like sitting in the box. But I’ve met quite a few folks who are genuinely looking for a way out, but they only focus their attention on the closed door. They miss so many opportunities!..

Nov 6, 2017

I recently read a quote online, and that brought to memory a story I heard many years ago. There was a method described how to catch a monkey. Some variations talk about spider monkey, but the meaning is the same....

This is a conclusion of the week, and we’ll talk about communication. In my opinion, it’s failing in two areas: 1. In many cases we are listening to others to answer, not to understand. 2...

Nov 2, 2017

Sometimes I feel that our communication is going in a different wave frequency, like radio. We talk to each other, create noise, but it does not register...

Nov 1, 2017

I see people coming up with wrong statements, wrong assumptions, and even totally bizarre facts that they think up. If not corrected, this false information may become permanent very quick.
