What No One Tells You About Your Special Gifts

We could spend a lifetime searching and never recognize our special gifts. It’s not that we don’t have any, it’s just that we don’t know how to see what they are. Once discovered, these gifts are able to guide your life and allow you to stand in your power.  But the focus as children is to fit into the norm, to develop abilities that are sanctioned by parents, schools, jobs, and other social entities.This is misleading, for what may be necessary for a certain environment may not have anything to do with a unique gift someone has. It may be …

Are You Comfortable in Your Cage or is it Time to Fly Free?

Take the quiz and find out! by Diane Wing, M.A. Feeling restricted is a good indication that you’ve built a cage for yourself. Blaming it on circumstances and the way others have held you back exonerates you from taking responsibility for creating the situation. Saying that your employer, your parents, your children, your significant other, or the lack you feel financially have built the walls you hide behind. These relationships and circumstances reflect how you feel about yourself and your beliefs about what is possible. In some ways, there is comfort in self-imposed confinement. It provides an excuse for not …

What is Your Hope for the World?

by Diane Wing, M.A. We are a worldwide community. It begins with our little, personal space in the vastness and flows out, touching everyone and everything. Each person’s thoughts, emotions, and actions have an effect on every other person and living being. We tend to focus on what is best for us in our own lives and how we can improve ourselves. Let’s take it a step further and consider how the ways we improve have an impact on the global community. As we create hope for ourselves, how does that radiate out to improve the world at large? Start …

Stand-up to Your Harshest Critic…Yourself!

by Diane Wing, M.A. The world can be harsh. On social media, book reviews, Quora, in person, opportunities abound to be criticized for every thought and action. Your situation may also invite criticism from family, friends, colleagues, and bosses.  Even when you’re doing what you think is right, there is the potential for someone to say that there’s a better way or that they don’t like the way you’re approaching the task. With all of the critical bombardment, it’s not surprising how easy it is to go into self-critique mode. This mindset results from: – Fear of being criticized. The …

Don’t Base Your Future on the Past

by Diane Wing, M.A. We live in a different world today. You are a different person than you were last year or even last month. Things grow and change, and using self-awareness and intention, it’s possible to do so along with it. Being in the flow calls you to modify what you want your life to look like. Those who continue to seek goals in accordance with the way they were in the past and what they wanted back then, coupled with the way the world used to be, are cheated out of growth and a happier way of being. It results in …

How to Gain Resilience and Personal Power

by Diane Wing, M.A. Nothing stays the same. Change is inevitable. The wheel of the life turns and the way we weather the change is the key to finding our destiny. The natural rhythm of life ebbs and flows, waxes and wanes. Life has its ups and downs. There are times when we build toward a goal and a time to rest. There are times when we need a standstill to contemplate what has gone before and what is yet to come. Nature has its seasons, with each giving a specific energy. Spring is for new growth; Summer is the …

5 Ways to Stand Strong When You Feel Powerless

by Diane Wing, M.A. We’ve all been there, the moment where we feel completely powerless in a given situation or relationship. Powerlessness turns to hopelessness, a giving up response to a seemingly desperate situation. The experience may last a day or can persist over time. The danger in staying in a despairing state is that depression sets in and motivation goes out the window. No matter the circumstance, we always have choices. If in a bad relationship, we can choose to leave. If going through abuse at a job, we can bolster our skills and start working our network or …

Do Your Emotions Suffer from Using Generalizations?

by Diane Wing, M.A. Anger, depression, sadness, helplessness, and hopelessness are all exacerbated by using generalizations. These are statements such as, “I can’t do anything right,” “Everything in my life sucks,” “Everybody is stupid,” and “Nobody cares about me.” Challenging the veracity of these statements delivers you from suffering from the negative emotions they trigger. The italicized words are the generalization, applied to the entire scope of the statement. When you take a hard look at how you talk to yourself, a pattern of generalizations emerge. This negative self-talk promotes lower-level vibrational patterns that serve to upset, demoralize, and demotivate. …

Ban this Process to Achieve Your New Year Resolutions

by Diane Wing, M.A. The essence of the New Year resolution is change. You’ve decided to make a significant change to start off the New Year right, but historically, it has been a difficult road that leads to falling back onto old behaviors. The process goes something like this: You decide that as of January 1st it’s time to make a change in your _________ (fill in the blank – weight, living environment, financial condition, job, etc.). Then you let it go through the holidays, especially any hopes of dieting with all of the yummy foods available around that time, vowing …

The Value Of Solitude And Personal Power

by Diane Wing, M.A. Fiona felt as though her head would explode. Between the news broadcasts, social media posts arguing various points of contention, and her friends and family weighing in on her life, she was filled to capacity. She didn’t want to make people feel like they didn’t matter or be disconnected from the world, but her anxiety level rose to teeth-clenching range and it was hard to breathe or to think clearly. Sound familiar? If you’re looking for peace in your life, both within and outside of yourself, it can be problematic. Disconnecting from the bombardment of the …
