Victim or Creator?

 

Connect with Julianna

Hi it’s Julianna Lyddon here and I have a couple of concepts that I want to throw your way. These concepts have been helpful for not only my clients when I bring them up, but for my students. I teach incoming freshman. Also its great to use with your employees. Its wonderful to use with your children and again these are fairly easy or simplistic as I say, but they are concepts that we don’t always think about.

So when I throw the word victim out there, what comes to mind? What do you think about? Because the individual that acts as the victim, is that person that likes to blame everybody else. That doesn’t want to take responsibility. That doesn’t like to be held accountable. It was her fault. It was his fault. The teacher just doesn’t like me. My boss doesn’t understand me. Right? There’s always an excuse. We know these individuals. Maybe there’s been a time in your life where you have been that individual. Right? Okay so when I throw this other word out there, the word creator, what comes to mind when you think about that? Well when we are the creator, we are the individual that sees opportunity everywhere.

Hi its Julianna Lyddon here and so today I want to talk about something that came up my classroom. I teach college kids, incoming freshmen in Arizona and today we were talking a little bit about habits and how we can stop behaviors before they become habitual and having that real awareness of what a habit is and how long it takes a habit to be actually formed and really getting in there and making that unnecessary shift.

Some of the kids brought up….. we have such great discussions …and some of them brought up this concept of relationships and marriages and how complicated that can be when two people have very specific habits. And how they come together in a relationship and how it can be extra difficult at eradicating or even really making the shift that’s very necessary so then the conversation kinda parlayed into someone asking if I believe in premarital counseling and so we had a discussion about that and I absolutely think that if individuals would go to see someone before they get married or even moved in together more marriages would be salvaged… would be saved.

I want to share something about our thoughts. We need to know how powerful our thoughts are. And when I say that, you may be saying, I know… but you really may not know! They really really are powerful. I do a workshop on imagination and how powerful it is when we really tap into that place. I don’t think people realize that thoughts really are powerful.

We see those quotes on facebook and elsewhere and as cliché as it sounds those are out there and people have known this since the beginning of time that thoughts are energy and what we are thinking absolutely permeates our physical body and even more importantly funnels into our world. And it is part of what creates our reality.

Think about this, everything we see in our world, this computer I am working on, the microwave behind me, the tv, our cars, a jet engine, everything in our world was first created by a single thought that came up as a thought in someone’s mind and then moved into their imagination and they started to created it. Now maybe it took years to bring it to fruition or teams of people to actually bring about maybe a vaccine for an illness. Maybe it took many many years but every single thing in our world was once just a thought in someone’s mind.

So if you think about that, you begin to realize how amazingly powerful each and every one of us really is! I mean we have the ability with every single thought we have to shape our world on a daily basis.

And it gets even cooler than that!!  because With every thought that we have we are consciously making a decision. Click To Tweet

That decision either brings us closer to our dream or further away from it.

Connect With What Lies Beneath

Connect With What Lies Beneath

 

Connect with what lies beneath… What does this mean?

So many of us go through life so busy and running in so many directions that we don’t always take the time to see what’s under the surface of our lives, what lies beneath. This relates to so many different aspects of who we are and how we see and react to all those experiences. We have been conditioned throughout our lives to respond a certain way…we learned many of these behaviors, thoughts, actions, while growing up. Some good, some bad.

Mean Girls

I get heated about this subject….”mean girls’!!

Mean Girls

 

My recent TV segments were all about how to identify these traits and how to teach your daughters to protect themselves.

I had the pleasure of meeting an incredible sixteen year old girl who was being mistreated at school. These stories are awful and I am always shocked at how cruel kids can be (boys and girls). She came in with her head down and her mother sat and shared a lot of her story. She was pretty much resigned to the fact that this was her life. She had been through years of therapy and was coming to me because, as people often do, they want something different than the traditional method and I offer that hybrid approach.

I listened and asked questions of both. Basically she said that she didn’t think this [therapy] would work and that sharing her feelings won’t make a difference. As I listened and watched, I realized that this girl – like many others who are bullied or mistreated – was indeed a special person. I continued to weave the tapestry as the mother spent her time explaining what she saw and what she expected. They were both so tired and I could feel their desperation for something new, but more importantly, I could feel the girl’s lethargy, her defeat and her sorrow.
