The Value Of Reaching Out For Other Perspectives


We all have a lot going on in our lives and I also know that we can all use some help from time to time. Realizing and accepting that can be transforming.

Sometimes for a range of reasons, we may resist reaching out and stop looking for solutions to our perceived problems or our feeling of being stuck. Yet, by not reaching out, we are destined to stay in that place when asking for help could propel us to new and unknown heights and happiness.

Whether you want to grow your business, get on a more rewarding path personally, or just want some ideas to feel better about yourself, making a decision to reach out and ask for some help is a great thing to do.

Jennifer House Coaching can be of service when you are ready to reach out. Let us give you some clarity and a renewed perspective toward your goals and desires. Call 530-310-6123 and let's talk about it.

Celebrate Your Successes!



"Acknowledge Your Positive Past:
Because the brain more easily remembers 
events that were accompanied by strong emotions, 
most people underestimate and underappreciate 
the number of successes they've had
in relation to the number of failures, they've had.
One of the ways to counteract this phenomenon
is to consciously focus on 
and celebrate your successes."

-- Jack Canfield, 
Principle 26 of The Success Principles


Jack Canfield's book, The Success Principles contains 64 principles to success and all are short enough to read in a few minutes, come back any time, or just open the book where ever you might like and pull out a gem of wisdom.

This one is great because he says that we are trained in this pattern early with our parents and in grade school. A lot of people get upset if we don't perform properly and punish us or yell at us to help guide us to do better, but what really happens is we become more emotionally involved in the failures and that makes it seem sometimes that we have more failure than success.

Jack says, "the sad truth is that we all have many more victories than failures--it's just that we set the bar too high for what we call a success." He goes on to talk about a participant in one of his programs who told that he left Iran for Germany where he learned the language and became an auto mechanic. Then he had the opportunity to come to America, learn English, and was learning how to be a welder, but he thought he was not a success. Come to find out, his idea of success was having a home in Beverly Hills and driving a luxury car! Yet, to many others, his life was an ongoing massive success.

Jack talks about creating a Victory Log, which can be a fancy leather-bound diary or a spiral notebook. It is just something that you record your successes or victories regardless of the size of them to later show how many you have. Success needs to be reinforced.

He adds to display your success on a success wall and look at it often. Make it so that your successes, however minor they may seem to get the attention they deserve, or rather, you deserve to create in each of us a stronger and more risk-taking self-esteem. It's not about bragging, it's about putting things in perspective.

We may as well let our successes lead the way.

It's OK To Ask For Help. We All Can Use A Little Help!

"Help!
I need somebody.
Help!
Not just anybody.
Help!
You know I need someone.
Help!"

-- John Lennon and Paul McCartney




The song's first verse continues, "when I was younger, so much younger than today, I never needed anybody's help in any way. But now these days are gone, I'm not so self-assured. Now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors." I just love the last part of that verse: "now I find I've changed my mind and opened up the doors."

We all have a lot going on in my life and I also know that we can all use some help from time to time. Realizing and accepting that can be transforming.

Sometimes for a range of reasons, we may resist reaching out and stop looking for solutions to our perceived problems or our feeling of being stuck. Yet, by not reaching out, we are destined to stay in that place when asking for help could propel us to new and unknown heights and happiness.
