Get Out…….

AppleTreeComplete that statement:  Get out……..

Get out of here!
Get out of the box!
Get outside!
Get out of your office!
Get out of the car!
Any other ways you can complete the phrase?

ClimatisAll of those statements mean the same thing to me: shake things up and GET OUT — move your body!  Every day is an opportunity to reconnect with the healing power of nature and restore the amazing powers of the mind and body.  Do you take advantage of this incredible opportunity which  is so simple, costs nothing and has the ability to have such a positive impact on your life?

Here are my top 3 reasons to GET OUT!
1.  It helps me relax which leads to greater creativity.
SweetWill2.  It clears my head of clutter which results in great clarity and helps me refocus on what I truly want.
3.  It’s just DARNED FUN!!  When I’ve worked myself into a frenzy about what I didn’t do, what I need to do and what I should be doing and I’m feeling exhausted and overwhelmed, I know it’s time to take a break! I’m always amazed at how spending time outside mowing the lawn, gardening, blowing bubbles, playing with my horses, fishing, walking in the grass with my shoes off, blowing dandelion puffs into the wind or just sitting on a bench and taking in some fresh air restores and re-energizes me.

TODAY’S TIP: Get outside and reap the benefits of reconnecting with nature.  Have a FANTABULOUS FRIDAY!

Hello? Are you there?

I’m doing an informal survey and I’d love your help!  I’ve listed the questions below. It should take abouta cash gift five minutes to complete the survey and send me your responses.

What’s your money story?  I don’t need to know all your personal financial details.  I’m not looking for bank balances or how you’ve made or lost fortunes. I just want to hear about the way in which you think about money.  Are you someone who grew up with the “money doesn’t grow on trees” outlook?  How about the “time is money” view? Did you hear “pinch your pennies so you can make it stretch”?  Feel free to send two or three of the statements that reflect your story or write a paragraph or two.

The second question is: on a scale of 1-10, how happy are you with your current financial situation?  One means “I’m totally and completely unhappy” and ten means “I’m THRILLED beyond measure.”

And my final question is this:  How do you have fun with money?

That’s it. My entire survey. I’ll be waiting to hear from you. Please post your responses below or send them to Jean@JeanMorehouse.com.  Thanks for your help!

What’s the catch?

catchHow many FREE offers do you receive a day in your email box? I haven’t counted recently, but I’m pretty sure I receive at least ten a day.  Because of what I do as a coach, I’m on LOTS of e-mailing lists.  I receive newsletters, offers for teleclasses, offers for free conversations, and offers for free resources every single day of the week.  I’ll be honest with you, sometimes I gratefully accept the offers and sometimes I decline. And, when I look at the offer, I often ask the question “What’s the catch?”  I wonder if the experience will be helpful or a waste of my time, if I’ll make a real connection with the person who made the offer or if I’m just another ‘potential’ client or customer.

I also wonder if my fear, concern or skepticism prevents me from taking advantage of a gift that could be really helpful.

How do you respond to free offers? What do you consider? How do you decide where you will invest your time and energy?

Fun With Money

American Dollars Falling from the SkyCan we talk about your money for a few minutes?

What happened when you read that question? Did you get excited, nervous, anxious? Did your heart rate increase? Did you feel yourself tighten up?

Money is such an important and prevalent part of all of our lives, yet I think it’s one of the least talked about. Money takes the blame for a lack of happiness or success and often gets the credit for happiness and success. We have a love/hate relationship with money. Money triggers our emotions. We may not know it or admit it, but we all have a relationship of some kind with our money. It can symbolize caring, power, control and freedom and it can be a major bone of contention. And, many of us are really uncomfortable discussing money.

What would it be like for you if you could give up worrying about money and start having fun with it? What might happen if instead of money conversations triggering anxiety, fear, frustration, and resentment, your money conversations created new, more powerful and positive thoughts and emotions?

Keep the Momentum Going

Yesterday I had you check-in with your happiness-o-meter.  How did that go for you? What did you learn about happiness in your life? It went so well for me I’ve decided to keep the momentum going and deem today ON-TRACK TUESDAY!

What I learned from yesterday’s exercise is that I have a tendency to have happiness ups and downs and large portions of gray areas, plateaus or times when I’m not aware or paying attention. And, I learned that that’s OK! It’s the way I function.

Another thing I realized is that I have had a story about happiness, learned from my earliest days on this earth, that has had a major impact on the happiness in my life. My happiness story taught me that it’s important to parcel happiness out because there’s only so much to go around. The theme is something like this: “Happiness isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. You can’t be happy forever. You’ve got to pay your dues. Don’t get too happy, because it’s gonna be really hard to deal with it when it’s gone.” So, as I thought it about happiness yesterday, I realized I’ve been afraid to truly embrace it because I DON’T WANT TO LOSE IT! I’m afraid it won’t last!  That was a profound revelation for me. Instead of choosing to live in happiness, I think I’ve been pushing it away and living in fear! And when I do experience happiness, I make sure (sometimes consciously and sometimes unconsciously) that it’s only in little bits and pieces because then it might last longer and won’t be so bad when it’s gone.

And — here’s the REALLY profound connection and learning for me — this has shown up in other areas of my business and my life, too! It’s been the kind of relationship I’ve had with money, success, leadership, and in relationships.

EXCITING NEWS: I’m experiencing huge changes for the better in my business and life because I’m choosing something better! Not only are BIG shifts in my awareness and behaviors relating to the happiness factor in my life taking place, I’m also seeing BIG changes in my relationship with money. Now that I know the story that’s governed my understanding and experience of happiness, I’m writing a new one that has already resulted in greater happiness in my business and life and around issues related to money! I’m using the gifts of my Sacred Money Archetype, which is a model that exhibits particular patterns of behavior, to help me take control, plug my money leaks, tame my fears, end my struggle and stand in my power around money and money issues. As a result I’m generating more income and experiencing more freedom, happiness, and fun in my business and my life.

Old School

Heard on the early news this morning there are now a myriad of ailments attributed to the use of technology including old schooltexting thumb, cell phone elbow, and various neck, upper back, arm, wrist and hand pain.  As expected, all of these can be easily remedied by cutting the amount of time we spend using our cell phones, e-readers, ipads and computers. Other benefits of turning off and powering down include the opportunity for more physical exercise and having live, real-time, face-to-face conversations with living, breathing people.

How many hours (or minutes) in the day are you off-line and unconnected?

TODAY’S TIP:  Have an old-school Sunday by unplugging, disconnecting, and powering-down.  And, please post what you did instead below.

Today I choose….

chooseWhat happens when you have a choice?  Do you know what you want? Are you confident in your decision? Are you able to make a decision or do you simply defer?

Hundreds of times a day we make decisions both consciously and unconsciously.  We choose what we want to eat and what we want to wear for the day. We decide what we’re going to do next. And, yes, believe it or not, we even control what we think about, where we focus our energy and how we feel.

So, today is a clean slate.  You get to choose.  What do you want to do?  Where do you want to focus your energy? What feelings to you want to experience?

TODAY’S TIP:  From Dr. Robert Holden’s Shift Happens! Daily Inspiration on May 2, complete the following sentence five times —  “Today I choose……..”    Have a (USE THE ADJECTIVE OF YOUR CHOICE) Friday!!
