The One Goal Appreciation Challenge

I believe life is a treasure hunt, and that we consciously or unconsciously are engaged in the hunt at all times. 

If I focus on finding positive things in my life, there suddenly seems to be more and more positive things in my life. Sometimes I have to discipline myself to “find” something to be grateful for, other times, I seem to be on an appreciation slipper-slide. 

If I focus on the negative things in my life, repeating bad experiences in my head, regurgitating traumas to my friends; basically trying to get anyone, someone to agree with me that, “Yes, that was a bad experience,” and “Yes, you have it bad,” the result is that the negatives in my life seem to increase exponentially. They certainly take up more space in my head.

What you focus on grows.” – Dr. Wayne Dwyer

Not long ago, I read the research on the incredible benefits of making a daily / nightly habit to “Write five things that you are grateful for at the end of your day.” I bought a special notebook and began the challenge. It changed my life

… and I had the hardest time sticking with the habit. 

The challenge:

My solution to sticking with the goal was to focus on just one goal, and I changed the goal I focused on each week. 

Each night, I’d write down five things to appreciate about my day that some way were evidence of my goal getting closer to manifestation. Soon, I began seeing the path to my goal so clearly, making it a reality became an expectation rather than a hope. 

As we celebrate Thanksgiving, try out this “One Goal Appreciation Challenge” for the week and let me know how it goes for you!

Bottom line: CALL AND BOOK AN APPOINTMENT WITH SALVATORE!!! He really is a gifted Feng Shui practitioner! Now, for the rest of the story.

I was in a transition in my life and was feeling very STUCK! A friend of mine recommended his Feng Shui consultant, so I gave her a call. Well, she never returned my call or responded to my emails. That’s when I turned to YELP.

I looked at a number of Feng Shui consultants, but I kept coming back to Salvatore’s page. I went to his website and watched his video on his website. I know it sounds cliche, but I really liked his energy and how he came across. So I contacted him. Am I glad I did!

He responded promptly to my request for more information with a brief, yet thorough explanation of his services which included energy clearing and a thorough analysis of my interior and exterior space. In addition he would make suggestions for enhancing the flow of energy and remedies for correcting negative situations. I booked an appointment.

He arrived at my apartment at the appointed time and after the initial exchange of greetings and introductions, he went right to work. First he evaluated the external energy flow of the exterior of my apartment, then on to the interior.

Initially he engaged me into a thoughtful inquiry as to my goals in life and where I was feeling stuck. Then using the Ba-Gua map, we went room by room and he made excellent suggestions including paint colors, and where to place plants, furniture, crystals and mirrors to indeed enhance the flow of energy in my home and my life! This process took about 2.5 hours

After our initial meeting, Salvatore made it clear that I could contact him at anytime to ask him some follow-up questions or run things by him. I did, and he always responded to my inquiries.

I couldn’t agree more with what a prior YELP reviewer said about Salvatore. He is indeed a “kind, intuitive, funny brilliant and compassionate man” and I too highly, highly HIGHLY recommend his services

Work Life Balance

Work Life Balance

Five principles to help you create the Work-Life Balance you want.

This year, I had to make my way back from burn-out. I was working too much and living too little. I set out to shift my life and came up with five principles of a Work-Life Balance. This Fall has become the season of “More Being and Less Doing”!

The Elusive “Work-Life Balance”

It is a stand-out goal for most, and yet, the concept of a work-life balance is still vague at best. Part of that is in it’s uniqueness to each individual, and part of that is the difficulty of quantifying what it means.

Secrets to Vision Boarding

Secrets to Vision Boarding

In 1992 I created a collage of images that inspired me. Immediately, things started shifting in my life that were inexplicably synched up to that collage, and the shifts continued unfolding for years. My accidental discovery of the art Vision Boarding sparked a thirst for just how it is that we can create and turn dreams into reality.

Having taught, written, and practiced Vision Boarding over the decades, I’ve learned secrets that separate successful vision boards from those that are just pretty images.
