Airing Out Your Compartments

Saturday, October 10th, 2009

If you think you hate your job, consider that the job may not be to blame. It may be that you’ve unwittingly taken the wrong approach to compartmentalization.

To become a professional in almost any field, it is usually necessary to compartmentalize – to separate one’s personal life from one’s work. A criminal lawyer can’t kick back with clients the way she would with friends. A CEO may call the employees of his company a “family” – but he would be a fool to relate to them in the same way he does his actual family.

While the need for distinguishing the personal from the professional is obvious enough, it’s also clear that compartmentalization can lead to dishonesty and dissociation from one’s true self. It can bring about a cognitive dissonance that separates oneself from one’s spirit.

Finding Your Divine Purpose

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

At one time or another you’ve probably asked yourself, “What is the purpose of my life? What is its meaning? Why am I here on Earth, and what am I supposed to be doing?” Chances are, you work hard, whether you take care of a household or have a job outside of the home.

Your days are filled with seemingly endless chores and tasks like getting the oil changed in your car and going to the grocery store. Perhaps sometimes, when you get tired or stressed out, life can seem like just one long and meaningless “to do” list with a bland retirement and a gold-plated watch at the end of it.

Are You Feeding Your Potential?

Monday, July 28th, 2008

Whilst goal setting, positive affirmation and dedication are major keys to achieving your true potential, if you don’t feed the physical body that houses your incredible mental power you’ll struggle to find the strength to achieve your dreams.  It’s like trying to run your car without putting in gas, oil and water.  Likewise, your mind could be infinitely more powerful, focused and alert if you gave it the nutrients it needs to fulfill its potential and drive your dreams to success.
