The Power of Positive DOING

Dear Walk the Talk Friends,

One of Walk the Talk’s favorite authors, BJ Gallagher, has entered a grant competition sponsored by Free Range Studios, the fabulous folks who make viral internet movies designed to make a positive difference in the world. They are offering two YouTopia Grants; one will go to a non-profit organization and the other will go to a socially responsible for-profit company.
 
BJ’s project is entitled “The Power of Positive DOING: 101 Strategies for Challenging Times” and she describes it best:

“Millions of people around the world are feeling anxious, confused, frustrated, and angry. They are reeling from the global recession and worried about the future – with good reason. I am writing a handbook entitled “The Power of Positive DOING: 101 Strategies for Challenging Times” and plan to make a training video (produced by Walk the Talk),- to be used by organizations to help people help themselves. Positive thinking isn’t enough … positive DOING is what’s needed. Action alleviates anxiety. With Free Range’s assistance in developing this project, we can spread the message about the Power of Positive DOING and show people how to create – or REcreate – a new future for themselves.”

 Would you please take a couple seconds to make a difference and vote for this worthwhile project (it is VERY easy)? Here is the link:

The Power of Inspiration
“Making the decision to thoroughly enjoy this or any other day is pretty simple,” writes Karen Casey. “It relies on our willingness to not let the actions of others over take our minds. We are in charge of what we think, what we say, what we do. Grabbing hold of this principle will change everything.” In Let Go Now, we are encouraged to embrace detachment from the lives of others. And it is through this detachment that we are able to have peaceful hearts. If you could use a little more peace in your life, please take a moment to learn more about Let Go Now.

Excerpted from Let Go Now by Karen Casey
Detachment frees us from overreaction.

Overreacting to the myriad situations in my life, whether bona fide major ones or extremely minor incidents, was once standard practice. Maybe you can relate. It made little difference what my spouse or a friend or a co-worker did; I was capable of taking their actions or words quite personally and then acting in ways that were seldom fitting for the situation. The idea of considering how I wanted to respond and then actually responding in a sane way had never occurred to me. For decades I had watched my family of origin react to whatever happened, and I was a great imitator.

Learning that there is another way to see, to interpret, to respond is like being given a second chance at life. We are on this path with others because of what we each have to learn. We are journeying together. Intentionally. We are not making the journey for each other or as each other. Doing for others what they need to do for themselves prevents the learning that needs to occur, both ours and theirs. Stepping aside and watching others handle that which is theirs to handle, and not letting what they do determine how we feel, is the “real stuff” of this journey. Discovering this makes every minute pretty exciting.
