Change Wishing Into Doing
Are you ready to go from Ordinary to Extraordinary?
Last night Pete & I watched ”New Girl” definitely not a PG! family type of show, nevertheless it was funny and I did Laugh out Loud!
So there’s one male character who’s a wannabe and he tries to hook up with every girl who breathes! What I liked was how they bash him for his crude behavior and more so, how his guy roommates keep him accountable for it with what they’ve dubbed a “Dou... B..” Jar. Every time he makes a “DB” comment or displays “DB” behavior, he has to pay up and contribute to the Jar! For example, the “New Girl” was crying her eyes out over a breakup and he proceeds to take his shirt off to show off his pecks, I would imagine to take her mind off things…lol
I recently read a blog post on leadership and some quotes that reminded me about the infinite power we all have to be the best we can be! One of my favorite quotes is:
“We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions; so we have to know how to act.”
I was honored to be invited to be one of the Coaches who took part in the “Above Board” Chamber of Florida‘s panel discussion “How to be a Better You in Business.”
One of the questions asked related to how the word “integrity” is being used so loosely and has become a “buzz word” in business and networking. My response ended with, “when your actions and behaviors are consistent, ultimately those “acts” will tell the story, for better or for worse.”
In August of 2007 I wrote a blog post that I was reminded of when I heard my Pastor’s sermon yesterday entitled ”Is Your Tank Full” His message was one of enlightenment. He perfectly makes things real. He made us all realize that we have a choice to keep ” our tanks” filled and more importantly, we get to choose what we fill our tanks with. Thank you Pastor Jay for that reminder!
Upon further reflection of my old post, I realized how much I have grown spiritually and how the same post would be somewhat different today. When I wrote the original post in 2007, I was full. I was grateful, I was aware and I was serene. I was content and extremely satisfied with my life. Today, I see my life the same way. Yet, I realize it is so much better because I know mind, body and soul, it is all possible because of the faith upon which it is grounded.
C.O.R.E. is a collaborative effort of two Professional Coaches, Eluise Gambino & Mary Anne Cipressy with a common desire to share the CORE principles of understanding one’s own self-empowerment! In doing so, each individual discovers their own inner greatness and creates their own opportunities to live their best life now!
Our mission is to become the catalyst for change in order to create opportunities for discovery, awareness, enlightenment and motivation so that you as an individual can design a life of real empowerment.
I read many blogs and articles that span a variety of topics. What stands out for me the most is any topic “of value”. I read personally to build a better future, by gaining knowledge, expanding my thoughts, raising my awareness and becoming well rounded. On the other hand, sometimes, it’s nice to just read something that gives you that warm, fuzzy feeling, one that lifts you up or just makes you smile..
Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world. –John Milton
An inspirational story about raising our own vibration
Gratitude, appreciation, trust, hope, and sharing are contagious…
Gratitude - Pass it on!
Feelings are Energy.
Thoughts are Energy.
Positive feelings and thoughts of awareness, appreciation and gratitude are the “fuel” that energizes your day.
Positive people produce positive energy...
Once, perhaps twice, but no more, in an entire lifetime will a person have an opportunity of life-changing magnitude. When such an opportunity knocks, it’s up to you to accept it and make the most of it - or to simply let it pass by. ~ Winston Churchill
Are you listening to the messages around you?
When opportunity knocks will you be ready to open the door?

“No one can give you wisdom. You must discover it for yourself, on the journey through life, which no one can take for you.”
I posted a quote yesterday about Life’s Purpose and read it to a group of women as I Co-Facilitated a Powerful You! meeting last night. Only to come home and find Sue Urda’s article (Co-Founder of Powerful You!) in the current newsletter, highlighting the same subject. Talk about purpose! Was it a coincidence or truly intended to be in my mailbox when I got home? I guess Sue and I were on the same path when she drafted the second edition of the Powerful You! newsletter, see below!
“Many years ago, but not so long ago, there were those who said, Well, you have three strikes against you: You’re black, you’re blind and you’re poor”, But God said to me, “I will make you rich in the spirit of inspiration, to inspire others as well as create music to encourage the world to a place of oneness and hope, and positively. I believed Him and not them.” ~ Stevie Wonder
What is your life purpose?
What motivates, inspires, and energizes you?
Are you repeating the same routine over and over and never moving off the rock? Do you feel stuck? Do you have a vision of what you wish your life could be like?
Before a caterpillar becomes a butterfly it must shed the protective coat of the chrysalis so it could fly and reach its full potential. As humans desiring development, we too must go...
The coaching process focuses on you and your agenda, supporting your efforts as well as managing your obstacles or challenges. A successful coaching relationship is always a partnership. To succeed, that partnership must be based on a solid foundation of trust.
