What is “Overcoming Everything”?

What is “Overcoming Everything”?

I came up with the title “Overcoming Everything” many years ago and then decided to see if that name, the URL, was available. To my surprise it was, and that told me that probably most people figured it was not possible to overcome everything and that was a pretty ridiculous goal to have. Well, I decided that it was my goal.

I have lived a life that afforded me many great opportunities, successes, and Incredibly happy times. But I also encountered many difficulties, hardships, illnesses, diseases, addictions, losses, failures, financial disasters, and generally a feeling of being completely lost. More than 35 years ago I decided I had better go on a personal journey to change all of this or I would not be alive. That is precisely how it felt to me at that time.

So I began studying anything that I could that offered any help whether it be a personal improvement book, a self-development seminar, a religious study, New Age thought, or anything I could find I that would offer some clarity or relief. Over the years I began finding those keys! It took decades for all of this to make sense to me, and I always had the nagging question of why all of this life had happened to me, and what was I supposed to do with it? When I had that question, I also heard the answer. The answer was I was to take everything that I had learned, whatever knowledge or wisdom I had gained through all those experiences, and share them with the world.

I then began to remember all of the exercises and processes that had helped me. All of the inspirational speeches, stories, and even my personal experiences had brought me proof of how effective and useful all these things had been. Now I had the idea of putting them all together for others so that others need not search as long as I did. All of this led to “Overcoming Everything – a Self-Guide to
Empowerment.”

Empowerment became the most important word to me, and it became clear to me that’s what I had been attempting to achieve in my life, and when I had an experience of feeling empowered myself, I knew that anyone could do it. There was nothing exceptional about me the caused me to come through all of these things other than I kept going and I was not willing to give up. Now, I know that saying you can overcome everything to most people will sound impossible but you have to understand that I meant overcoming in a completely different way. It doesn’t mean that you forget or not acknowledge the things that have happened in your life, but it does say that you can overcome them if you start to see them differently, and you are determined to use them in a manner that helps you rather than hold you back. Sometimes overcoming might mean that we don’t change something that is in front of us, but we learn how to embrace it and again use it for our good.

The gem that I discovered was that the key to my success and what I was able to accomplish came about because I was able to begin asking different questions of myself. That is truly the crux of “Overcoming Everything”. It was my dream to give people a tool to use, a place to come for inspiration that was always available, and the ability to know that they have the talent to create and be whatever they want. My goal as an empowerment life coach is to help the individual discover what’s been blocking them, see the truth of who they are, find out what they sincerely want to do in their lives, and come to know the purpose that their lives hold for them. I know that I could not find my purpose for many many years, and I could not find any meaning in my life for many many years, but then I did, and that’s why I know everyone else can as well.

You were reaching for self-reliant

You were reaching for self-reliant

February 28, 2018

You were reaching for self-reliant. All of those words were used intentionally. The word reaching will elicit the idea of moving to or toward something, which you have been doing.

Self-reliant then conjures all manner of things, all of which will be felt by you on a visceral level now. You wanted to know you trusted yourself without confirmation from others. You wanted to know that the opinions of others were not as important as your own. And finally, you wanted to know that you hold all the responsibility for your life, especially emotionally. That is self-reliant.

Uncomfortable and worthwhile

Uncomfortable and worthwhile

February 27, 2018

It may take a while for you to understand and accept this message fully and absorb the wisdom it was intended to impart, but do your best as it will be worthwhile.

As you grow in your awareness or become more aware of who you are, it is not possible for you not to notice the times in your past where you did not operate in a manner that served you, and you see what you had been willing to accept.

In your moment of recognition, it is easy to become angry,
uncomfortable, or even depressed. But now you also recognize that when those things come up, you understand they are helping you, and you move through them much quicker. That is also empowerment.

Stop cutting off your air

Stop cutting off your air

February 26, 2018

Stop cutting off your air is a directive you have used in your work, but it can also metaphorically be used in every aspect of your life. You, in essence, have been cutting off your air, so speak.

The technique you devised, you also explained as being
counter-intuitive, meaning that you operate in a manner that seemed contradictory to a natural inclination. Now, that is precisely what you would be wise to do now to stop cutting off your air.

Make new choices now that are counter-intuitive to your old self, and you will breathe easier.

You will shout finally when you find yourself

You will shout finally when you find yourself

February 25, 2018

Finally, is the word that you proudly exclaim and sometimes even shout when you come to understand and then fully accept who you are and the true nature your being.

You had several instances that point out how much you have doubted yourself, but more importantly, you did not trust the intuitive nature of your being. The intuitive part means that you come to “feel” who you are, and all of your characteristics, and not see them as wrong or bad. You know all those things have helped you be the person you are now, and then finally, again, you proudly own you.

This message will change your life

This message will change your life

February 24, 2018

This message will change your life, even if you only absorb a portion of the wisdom contained.

Some time ago you wrote a message about requiring proof before you would believe something. Now the big surprise is, the something you were attempting to believe is you.

You stumbled upon the concept or theory of electromagnetic thoughts or ideas, which you had studied decades ago; assimilated the information, and operated in that manner. The information was not continually in your conscious awareness, but it was there. (The word stumbled is being used in jest.)

Then you stumbled about a video that brought to your awareness your propensity for giving so much to others, for which you also received criticism, but you knew that because of every principle you know, your behavior could only cause you to receive more as well, in so many ways.

How much more proof will you require before you believe yourself?

You could not have done this before

You could not have done this before

February 23, 2018

You could not have done this before. While you have had this conversation previously, it is always a good time in your moment of now to remember.

You have a habit of coming to, what seems to you, to be a new awareness, and then immediately wonder why you did not know that before or why you did not act differently. When you do this, you slow down, as it were, your natural progression. You have introduced the notion that something was wrong with you before, and that is never the case.

When you accept that evolving is progressive, you will do more.

You came to do something important

You came to do something important

February 22, 2018

You came to do something important. That sentence is one that you and everyone else has felt, on some level, wants to believe was there, and live your life in a manner that denied the fact or possibility.

Then, as you experience, through a series of seemingly
incomprehensible or even illogical events, you come to know, believe, and own that very first sentence.

The emotional feeling you experience when this occurs is exhilarating, and inescapable by you. Then you know the important thing you wanted to do was to have all others experience the same.

You are forcing yourself to become more

You are forcing yourself to become more. While force is a powerful word, it was used to describe the feelings you experience at times when it seems to you that some outside force is causing you to do something or act in a particular manner. You are doing that!

In actuality, it is what you can think of as the higher part of you that knows everything you want and desire, but at times you are just too frightened to go there, so a gentle push was required, again, by you. Bravo.!

Finding your way home

Finding your way home

February 20, 2018

You were struck by the memory of the story of Hansel and Gretel, and for a good reason. As you remember in the story, they used breadcrumbs as markers to find their way home. The reason you resonated with the story is that this is what you are doing in your life, as do all others.

You recently called these breadcrumbs in your life, little glimpses of who you are. Those glimpses are the good feelings and emotions that arise when you know you are doing what you love in your life. Now you find your way home.
