The Emperor of You

The wise man knows it is better to sit on the banks of a remote mountain stream
 than to be emperor of the whole world. " - Chuang-tzu

With each change in season, nature reveals opportunities showing the flow of moments.

Control comes from choices as one moves along with life's stream.

All you really need to do is accept this moment fully. You are then at ease in the here and now and at ease with yourself.
- Eckhart Tolle

Find solace by finding water's movement.  

Observe with all the senses.

Become the Emperor of You.

Yes. Yes. Yes, and . . .

Do you even feel that NO! has become the most overused word in the English language? It deters us from creative thought and action.

In a moment of decision, consider what YES would bring to the situation.

Dutch author, Berthold Gunster, inndicates we need more, ‘Yes, and…’ He explains that ‘Yes, buts’ get in the way of creativity and innovation. We think: Yes, but it didn’t work before. Yes, but what if it fails. As a result the’ Yes, but’ creates limitations, hazards and obstacles.‘Yes, and ‘ looks at possibilities and process.  

Notice opportunities to Yes your way to success.

Gunster says, “Start by looking at reality in a different way and deconstruct a problem into a fact so you can move from ‘yes but’ to ‘yes and.’ Look at the bare facts and examine what you can do with them.”  

Also find creative solutions when you find yourself in a 'yes but' situation.

Gunster leaves us with the notion, “Yes, and people invented the airplane; Yes, but people invented the parachute."

What will 'Yes and' do for you today?
