ON DOING BETTER

On Friday I really liked the "no one is perfeck" quote. It made me think that so many of us were raised with a "practice makes perfect" philosophy. I believe it is really a false premise.

For one there is really no such thing as perfect. For two athletes,musicians,actors, etc. practice a great deal and still goof at times. The same with workers who do their jobs every day and make errors on occasion.

Practice does improve our performance and increases our accuracy or appropriateness.Even people I help report that practicing better ways of responding are able to use that under more stressful conditions.Practicing stress management tools as taught in our Tranquility Center improves your ability to induce a relaxed state of mind and body. Call it calm on demand! Call Mimi Gegg for your complimentary visit.

So, strive, not for perfection, but for doing better and better. Set realistic goals and be realistically optimistic. Most of all enjoy today.

Bye For Now,

Bill

  1. Thank you for mentioning our Tranquility Center. It may not be clear to some of our readers and visitors so here is how it works. Anything and everything is confidential. I talk with you for a few minutes to identify those areas you believe are stressing you. We then enter the tranquility chamber I call it a chamber because we are somewhat secluded, the floor is yours so-to-speak. It is an intimate and private setting. The visitor sits in a large oversized recliner, in front of a large flat screen tv. There are different levels of relaxation; the visitior can simply enjoy the quiet environment with beautiful images and images of interest. Participate in guided imagery which is way to relieve some of the barriers to your personal development working toward a more, authentic, natural you. As your facilitator, I guide you toward a more peaceful and forgiving place. Deep breathing is an ongoing part of activities we do in the tranquility center. The basics of meditation are offered, with a training CD you can view at anytime in our facility along with Dr. Penzer's new cd. For pain management we like to work with bio-feedback. Dr. Penzer chose the "heart-math" program as it dipslays your heart rate while you are practicing your deep breathing and relaxation. This produces working the synchronation of the heart and mind; technically, a good learning tool. There are challenging and fun activites that go along with this program as you practice, they are user and even kid friendly. (ADHD kids do well with relaxation). My goal in helping you is to help you help yourself. Specifically working with you from where you in your life now, to where you can and desire to be. Dr. Penzer's qote in last weeks blog stating that "you can't change your beginngs, but you can share change you future. Become more being accepting of who you are now. As Dr. Penzer echos in his Pledge to Myself, We work toward Becomming a More Compassion Self.

    This projejct is also focus/performance oriented in that once you master your heart-mind harmony, it's pretty hard to fall off track.

    Joy to you and yours,
