FRESH JUICE Because Life is Juicy
September 2006 (814)880-7319

As the school year begins, I would like to dedicate this issue of Fresh Juice to learners of all ages - in the hope that you will decide to step out of your comfort zone and sign up for a new class in Living Full-Out. There is open enrollment in YOU101 and no waiting in line for the life is yours to lead.

I recently tried on my version of courage and took a surfing lesson. As someone who has experienced nightmares of tidal waves all of my life, it was a big deal for me to actually choose to put myself in the mouth of a wave - even if it was puny in comparison to my mind's picture of terror.

The result is an unexplainable connection to the water and to surfing in general, as well as an increased sense of who I am and of what I am capable. I actually can stand on top of all of that rushing water, and move with the force underneath me rather than get pummeled by it! Risking my place of comfort gave me the confidence to translate that one success into everything I choose. I'm learning to "surf" with what bumps come my way, and ride the waves of my days with a big fat juicy smile!

Here's to you finding your version of courage and success, and as always, to living on purpose, Stephanie

    New Doorways
    open door to light

    "If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success." -John D. Rockefeller, Sr.

    For many, September is a good month for opening new doors, even if entering the next grade in school is no longer what creates the push into new and uncomfortable situations. You may protest, "Why would I want to feel UNCOMFORTABLE?"

    Because as a student entering a new year, along with that uncomfortable, don't-know-what's-around-each- corner feeling, new territory was conquered! Each interaction was rich with possibility as you made the choice to act either in old familiar or new expansive ways.

    The end of the first day or week of school also presented an original perspective: surviving new and uncomfortable situations gives you more confidence to move forward. When the next big adventure knocks at your door, you are more willing and able to answer the call. Sure, there are rough spots. But in the end, like an awkward colt learning to walk, a new applicable life skill is the grand result!

    As adults, taking a class is one sure way to open a new door, but it can be as easy as taking a swim in the ocean if you usually only sit on the beach. Perhaps it is a stretch for you to enter into the world of your child (at any age) for a set time and let go of any control of how the play or talk will go. Get curious! See what comes up in the space of these new endeavors. This is the recipe for true learning, growth and success.

    Perhaps because as adults we know we have this amazing ability to recreate our life in each single moment that we allow so many to pass us by without change. But what if this is all we get? What if we are in the PhD program of our life now? What new door will you open to make this your best school year to date? What teacher will best support this learning for you? As always, only YOU know.

    Space to Breathe
    window by the sea

    Space to Breathe is the monthly section of inquiries designed to use when journaling, dreaming, or when you just plain have a minute to yourself. It is designed to give you a springboard for self- discovery.

    What new skill (personal, professional or otherwise) are you yearning to apprentice with or master?

    "What is possible for me in my life by stretching the boundaries of my comfort zone and daring to investigate new territory for myself?"

    "True life is lived when tiny changes occur." - Leo Tolstoy

    Take a look around you. What is working? What could use some fine-tuning, and what is asking to be revealed from within? Chances are you are able to think of one thing you have wanted to be, learn or do that is, up until now, unrealized and could be acted upon.

    Take advantage of one of best ways to catapult your life into your right action with individualized whole life coaching. Apprentice with your true self, and learn how to create the path to your fullest future.

    If not now, when? When will you consider yourself worthy of pursuing such deep learning within yourself? What's at risk if you don't take the stand to demand your full expression in the world? No one else can do it for you: it is up to you to take the first step. In the voice of a classmate from years past, "I dare you!"

    Trust that still, small voice that says, "This might work, and I'll try it." -Diane Mariechild
