I focus on the word “be”
The word “be” can be turned into action on a daily basis. I constantly ask myself: Who am I being? I take the word “be” and remind myself to be aware of my own actions and behavior. #wordsintoaction #being #authenticity

The workplace is the last frontier of spirituality
Employers can benefit from creating a culture where people want to come to work every day. Creating that culture means infusing the workplace with purpose and a kind of professional spirituality. #spirituality #work #purpose

AO Contributor Feedback
It’s one-stop shopping for wisdom
I love The AO Project. It will probably save people money on therapy, because it’s like one-stop shopping for human wisdom. Having access to so many insights based on personal experience is a powerful tool. #TheAOProject #wisdom #therapy

Finding & Fulfilling Our Purpose
I had to peel back my own layers to help others
As an executive coach, I help others find their purpose. But before I could do that, I had to peel back my layers to find my own purpose. I’m better equipped to help others because I’ve gone through that self-exploration. #purpose #selfawareness #selfanalysis

Stop and ask yourself: “Who am I being?”
I was running late for an appointment when I stopped and asked myself: “Who am I being?” I realized I was being impatient. But being is a choice. When I asked myself, “Do I want to be impatient,” the answer was no. I use questions like those to turn the word “be” into action. #wordsintoaction #being #selfawareness

On Death: Fear & Other Feelings
Don’t race through sad feelings
Mourning is excruciating but necessary. I’ve tried to accelerate the mourning process; it doesn’t work. To truly heal, give yourself time to feel sad. #death #deathanxiety #sadness

The Pursuit of Happiness
Declare happiness right here, right now
Like love, happiness is a state of being. It’s something we can choose. Even when everything seems to be falling apart, we’re capable of taking a breath, counting our blessings, and finding happiness in whatever moment we’re in. #happiness #choice #gratitude

On Death: Fear & Other Feelings
I tried to stay connected with my parents after they passed
Parents are our first expressions of love. When my parents passed, the physical loss was a jolt to my system. But I still felt they were present in my life, and I even talked to them around the house. It gave me a sense of connectedness and warmth. #death #deathanxiety #parents

Bonds, Breakups & the Essence of Relationships
To be part of a healthy relationship, be healthy
Healthy relationships are only possible between two whole and healthy people. The idea that partners should complete each other is Hollywood fantasy. #relationships #healthy #pain

Good, Evil & Drawing the Line
Focus on action, not evil
Many bad things are happening in the world right now. It’s important to move past labeling things as evil, and to instead take actions to stop it. That puts us in a position of power rather than fear. #goodandevil #takeaction #fear #power

Finding & Defining Love
Don’t find love. Be love.
Love is not something to find; it’s something to be. Practice being love with your friends, your neighbor, and even your mailman. Paradoxically, being love helps us find love, because we attract what we are. #love #kindness #attraction

Loving Yourself
As a child of God, I am loved and lovable
Even though I grew up with loving parents, it hasn’t always been easy to love myself. I often turn to religion to remind myself that, as a child of God, I am loved and lovable. #selflove #religion #god

Bonds, Breakups & the Essence of Relationships
While dating after a divorce, I’m careful not to lose myself to pain
I’m recently divorced and dating again. After a breakup, I found myself sad and in pain. I realized, however, that staying in that place of pain is a choice. I chose to leave it by looking for lessons in the relationship. #relationships #breakups #pain #divorce #lessons

Being Alone & Feeling Alone
After divorce, I recognized loneliness as an emotion
Being alone is a state. Loneliness is an emotion. I learned to differentiate the two after my divorce. Now I know that I can be alone without being lonely. #loneliness #aloneness #divorce

Finding & Defining Love
I didn’t love myself to attract the right partner
In a previous relationship, I discovered that I didn’t love myself enough to attract the right partner. Like attracts like, and I attracted someone who needed to love himself more in order to be part of a healthy relationship. Now I ask myself how much more self-love I need to uncover before I begin a new relationship. #love #relationships #selflove

Money, Society & Status
Pursue wealth to feel good, not to impress others
One of my role models is Oprah Winfrey. She’s one of the wealthiest people on the planet, but she doesn’t flaunt. Like her, I try to spend my money on things that make me feel good, regardless of whether they impress others. #money #wealth #happiness #ego

Money, Society & Status
My working class background made me glamorize success
My family grew up in a housing project in Queens. I dreamed about becoming successful. I’ve been fortunate to find that success, but I’ve also realized that the dream of success is elusive. It’s hard to be happy if you think your happiness depends on certain achievements. #money #success #happiness

Money, Society & Status
Don’t allow your economic status to define your happiness
If you do what you love, the money will come. But it may not come right away. I remind myself everyday that I can make the choice to be happy. That choice doesn’t depend on my economic status. #money #lifepurpose #happiness

Dealing with Anxiety & Depression
Angst comes from the stories we tell ourselves
Quite often, my anxiety over a situation stems from stories I tell myself about the situation. Those stories aren’t rooted in facts. When I recognize the difference between stories and facts, my anxiety dissipates. #anxiety #arguments #mindfulness

Dealing with Anxiety & Depression
How I cope with the anxiety of parenting
As a mother, I get anxious about my son’s safety. Is he making the right choices? Is he safe? When this anxiety becomes overbearing, I remind myself that anxiety is a feeling. It has a source. When I identify that source, I am better able to cope with anxiety. #anxiety #parenting #mindfulness

Finding & Fulfilling Our Purpose
Look to childhood and friends to find your purpose
I recommend that people examine their childhood to find their purpose. Often, what was natural to us as children feels just as natural as adults. I also recommend people ask friends to tell them what they think are their gifts and talents. #purpose #friends #childhood

Loving Yourself
Our upbringing influences our capacity for self-love
Often the way we were raised influences our capacity to self-love. Those who were abandoned as children may find it more difficult to accept their own worth. #selflove #childhood #upbringing

Finding & Fulfilling Our Purpose
A childhood pastime foreshadowed my purpose
When I was a child, I loved to play teacher. As I got older, I pursued a different career. When a friend suggested that I would make a good coach, I saw the connection between my childhood pastime and my purpose. #purpose #childhood #teaching
