The Age of Happiness

Book Recommendations:


The Zimmers – Grace Cook

 

Grace Cook 9- – 3 Rules of Happiness

  1. There is no need to whine and complain about the problems of life or age.  There is no sense in it.  You need to get up and do something.
  2. I forgive everything.  I don’t know why there is a need to be angry at anyone.  Listen to people. Just listen and try to understand what they are talking about.
  3. Life whatever you shape it to be.  Be happy – that’s the most important.

 

Keep on Smiling

“Never let an old person sneak into your body” Wayne Dyer

“You are never too old to do anything your body will allow” – Barbara Sheer

“It’s never too late to be ‘who you might’ have been” – Mark Twain

“Frequently remembering we will die, will increase the quality of our lives” – Buster Benson (creator of 750words.com)

“When your glimpse your own mortality you grow up real fast” – Peter O’Connor

 

  • Life is about possibility
  • It’s very important to have an interest, doesn’t matter what it is, just as long as it’s interesting and stimulating and/or creative for us, (it’s not about anybody else),
  • Keep up the curiosity, ‘Oh the places curiosity will take us and oh what we will learn and discover is anyone’s guess and this is what makes it exciting.
  • Movement is IMPERATIVE – do balancing exercises or juggle. It supports the left side of our brain and helps with memory. Ride a bike, stand on one leg, hula hoop, bounce from one rock to another ……. as if we were children!
  • see video clip for more information.
  • Start a course, any kind of course, florist, photography, cooking, do a uni degree – anything if this is what you want to do

  • Ask yourself – What is the worst thing that will happen? and sit with the answer before making the next move.

Look at what FEAR stands for – let it go. False – Evidence – Appearing – Real

CP56 – The Power of Vulnerability

 

 

Being honest, authentic, courageous and risking emotional exposure.

Dictionary meaning:

Vulnerability is the state of being open to injury, or appearing as if you are. It might be emotional, like admitting that you’re in love with someone who might only like you as a friend, or it can be literal, like the vulnerability of a soccer goal that’s unprotected by any defensive players.

  • It’s okay to be yourself
  • All we want in life it to belong
  • Know we are worthy
  • Love our self
  • We are deserving
  • Let go of perfectionism (it holds us back from living our life),
  • Ask yourself, ‘What would I do next time?’ Make our life different and learn from the shortcomings, challenges or things that didn’t go according to plan. They are only mistakes if we do not learn from them.
  • Treat Self kindly
  • Let self be seen
  • Just be grateful
  • We need to be able to ask for help or say ‘I made a mistake’
  • People connect more with those who show their weaknesses
  • Vulnerability is about uncertainty, risk and emotional exposure. Its about showing up and being seen

CP55 – Embracing Change

 

David Bowie ‘Changes

“It’s not the blowing of the wind that determines your destination, it’s the set of the sail”

     –  Jim Rohn

 

To the degree you try and hang on it, it’s to that degree you will suffer.

 

Let change flow through you, don’t resist it – this is where we grow.

 

The questions you are prepared to ask yourself determines your outcomes –

  • What’s great about this?
  • What is my part in this?
  • What could be great about this if it could?
  • Is it true?
  • What exactly is happening (this allows the space and thought to really look at the issue)
  • What is the worst thing that will happen?
  • What’s in my control and what is not?

 

Allow emotions to flow if they need to (acknowledging them is key to growth and moving on – creating change).

 

Nurture our changes all the time.

Notice the people in your life and the relationships it creates.

Change is inevitable.

 

It’s important to acknowledge the grief……..a lot of change has grief behind it as we are often loosing something, someone etc.

Put our hand up and ask for help – we don’t do this enough and people like to help. Accept the help offered.

Communication is key (speak it, put it on the table, share it – with a friend, family member, practitioner or a coach).

Reframe the change – take a new approach, get support in doing this, a coach will absolutely support you with this.

Why, Why, Why do I want to do this? What action can I take?

 

MOST IMPORTANTLY – Have Fun!!!!!! And know, FEAR is simply False Evidence Appearing Real.

Ask yourself “What was my part in this?” will take you to a different place and create calm thinking in the situation.

Say to yourself “I choose peace” this will also calm us in a difficult/noisy/troublesome place.

Wayne was a catalyst for other people to get there work out into the world. He helped Anita Moorjani and Bruce Lipton promote their books.

Your Erroneous Zones was his first book and sold 35 million copies.
