Inspiring Blog - Hollywood Journal by Eileen Grubba

Great blog from a great friend Eileen Grubba and a true Role Model of Possibility. Read it, share it and be inspired by it. 

Here is an excerpt that reminds me of a conversation I had last week:
" I went home and walked through my Mom’s kitchen with my head down. Suddenly I heard, “Stop! Come back here.” I turned to face my all-knowing Mom. She looked into my eyes and asked what happened. Choking down tears, I told her my date asked how I can cheer when I can’t even walk. Mom looked at me with empathy, then smiled and asked the golden question I wish I’d thought of an hour earlier . . .

“Did you ask him how he can talk when he can’t even think?”
-- Eileen Grubba from her Hollywood Journal Blog

I was speaking to a woman who is a life long Champion Equestrian rider and she told me she went to a doctor for a physical and he told her her blood pressure was low and she told him that it was normal because she is an athlete, He asked if she was a runner and she said no, she rode and jumped horses. He responded that she wasn't an athlete. I told she should have said she clearly a better athlete than he was a doctor."
This echo's Eileen's life lesson she shares in her blog.

Don't let others ignorance affect your view of your self.

Solution Seeking

Once I hear the problem defined my brain goes immediately in to solution mode. I'm always looking for the best and most elegant solution to any problem. Learning to not focus on the problem and what you don't want but instead to focus on the solutions and what you do want was one of the best lessons I learned in life.

Wednesday Book of the Week "The Power of Story"

"Your story is your life," says Loehr. As human beings, we continually tell ourselves stories -- of success or failure; of power or victimhood; stories that endure for an hour, or a day, or an entire lifetime. We have stories about our work, our families and relationships, our health; about what we want and what we're capable of achieving. Yet, while our stories profoundly affect how others see us and we see ourselves, too few of us even recognize that we're telling stories, or what they are, or that we can change them -- and, in turn, transform our very destinies."

100% Responsibility

What Ever Exist or Doesn't Exist in Your Life, You Are Responsible For. That Means You Are Responsible for the Good , Bad and Ugly in Your Life. 
So Get Busy...

Wednesdays Book of the Week - Abundance

The sub title sums it up, "The Future is Better Than You Think". The book counters the pessimistic view of our future and shows all  the opportunities and cutting edge breakthroughs that predict an optimistic future. Worth reading to counter all the negative news by a media that makes their money off of "if it bleeds it leads" stories.

In Memory and Support of our Brothers and Sisters in Boston

This quote is especially appropriate in light of yesterdays terrorist bombing in Boston. My sympathy and prayers go out to those killed and injured in Boston and to all their families and friends who will deal with this for a lifetime. 
The people of Boston are strong people as New Yorkers were after 9/11 and as Americans are and this tragic attack will make us stronger. 

And to all those who perpetuate terrorism and their supporters the words yesterday of Patton Oswalt ring true:
 "The good outnumber you, and we always will."
And I would add by the millions and "All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light from a single candle" and today there are millions of candles lit for our Brothers and Sisters in Boston.
