The Daily Echo: Do you have “The Vision”. April 12, 2018

April 12, 2018

Great video today featuring Les Brown, Wayne Dyer, Neil Gaiman and Jim Rohn. How often do you take time to plan and see what you really want. NO I don’t mean dream and fantasize….. I mean time to realize what you want and take time to plan, prepare, WORK….. See the obstacles that will keep you from the goal and develop a plan to conquer those obstacles. The illusion of having a vision is you just have to think about it….There is far more than thinking about it but THINKING usually starts the process and can’t be eliminated.

The Daily Echo: Agency and Anger (Lynn Robbins). April 8, 2018

April 8, 2018

Just this past week I was discussing the topic of Family and Anger with another person. There had been a death in the family of this person and the settlement of the Will had left many of them on Non-Speaking terms. I believe the family is the greatest place we find joy, happiness and love. So why then does this same family union also have moments of anger, despair, and pain. On today’s echo I share a video from an older talk by Elder Lynn Robbins with added examples. Anger many times is the culprit of these hardships in our families. How often have we used the phrase, “I am sorry I just lost my temper”….Hmmm Lost? Take a listen and all of us can do a better job of love and compassion in our most treasured relationships on earth.
