What If It All Goes RIGHT?

INSIGHTS AND INSPIRATION FROM MENDHI AUDLIN

The Three Priorities

April has been a whirlwind. This morning, I sat down to regroup, refocus, and reprioritize.

As I reflected on my priorities, I realized that my top three priorities are universal. They never change.  And, in fact, if I continue to focus first on my top three priorities, everything else will likely fall into place.

Priority #1 - Managing how I feel.  This is an internal quest.  My first priority each day is to notice how I feel inside... about myself, about my day, about what's...

The Invincible Strength of the Human Spirit

I'm struggling to put into words what I've experienced in the past 24 hours...

I'm in California this week.  Yesterday, I had the honor of presenting a keynote address at the 2019 CalWorks Conference. CalWorks is an organization committed to lifting California families out of poverty through education.  There were more than 400 people in the room, representing Community Colleges, County services, and students who are using the program to radically change their...

How to Rally when you Feel Defeated

Sometimes you win. Sometimes you lose. But ouch. Sometimes a defeat can hit us hard.

This past week, I've had the opportunity to witness disappointment, ego blows, and outright failures.  While it my be natural to feel frustrated, saddened and discouraged sometimes, it's useful to have the mental capacity to rally.  To shake it off.  To learn the lessons, find the wins among the loss, and move forward.

For this week's "What If Wednesday" brainstorm, I'm reaching out to all of...

Who do you think you are?

We took a deep dive last night in our monthly What If Up Club online coaching call... daring to explore our thoughts and feelings about our own sense of identity.  Who have you been in the past?  Who are you now? Who are you becoming?

So, this week, for What If Wednesday, we dare to ask the question:  Who do you think you are?? 

What if your sense of identity focuses on your strengths, your gifts, and your willingness to grow and expand?

Playing on the Thin Branches

Here's a big question for you.  Be honest.

How willing are you to learn? To change? To grow?

Most of us nod our head and affirm that we are open and eager to learn new things.  But what happens when those new things land us in new uncharted territory?  Are we still so eager?

This week's What If Wednesday possibilities rant is inspired by a beautifully honest comment in our What If Up Online Community:

"I'm a few years into studying metaphysical teachings and the classes are...

A Rising Tide...

You've probably heard the aphorism, "A rising tide lifts all boats," right?

Usually, the phrase is used in an economic context, but for today's "What If Wednesday" possibility, a different meaning comes to mind...

What if elevating our mood and expanding our capacity to experience and express joy and love are the secret to up-lifting all the circumstances in our lives?

What if are highest priority is not to set goals and intentions, but to focus our energies on how we feel about...

The Luck O' the Irish

I was talking with my friend Robin yesterday, and I mentioned to her that I was considering doing a special What If Wednesday this week to celebrate St. Patrick's Day:  

What if today is my lucky day?

Robin is a masterful What If Upper, so she immediately plussed my possibility:  What if EVERY DAY is your lucky day??

It turns out, there have been clinical studies that demonstrate that our belief in our own "luckiness" actually creates better luck.  Consider this...

What's Your Story?

Seen any good movies lately?

Personally, I love gooey cheesy chick-flicks.  In the beginning, it may look like things aren't working out, yet I know, in the end, a predictable blissful ending is inevitable.  I count on it. 

What is the story that you tell about your own life?  Are you the courageous hero?  Are you the unsuspecting victim?  Are you destined for happy outcomes no matter how bleak the circumstances may be? Or is there always a villain that...

The Happy Dance

When is the last time you did your "Happy Dance"? You know the one...  Yep. That one.

What was the occasion?  A celebration?  The arrival of good news?  A special accomplishment?

What if we don't need a reason to feel happy?
What if, today, you do your "Happy Dance" just because.
What if you take a moment, right now, to lift yourself to a state of sheer joy?
What if you share that joy with someone just for the fun of it?

This week's invitation is to choose happiness....

Space to Breathe

Ever feel like you've got so much on your plate, there's never a chance to stop and breathe?

Yet, something inside you knows that you do have the time. To take a breath.  To regroup.  To step outside. To open your eyes and savor the beauty-full life you've created.  

What if we allow ourselves to have more of these moments?

This week, I'm grateful for divinely timed weather delays, unexpected changes of plans, and ideas that "didn't work" disappearing from my overloaded plate.
