Here’s a Quick Way to Flourish

Dr. Caroline Leaf, in her book, Who Switched Off My Brain, writes that there are only two types of emotions—love and fear! Every emotion is either one or the other. Guess which one messes with the chemistry in your brain flushing your body with toxins?

Dr. Orv Owens, in his book, The Psychology of Relationship Selling, says that 95% of the population is fear motivated while only 5% is love motivated. Guess which motivation thwarts your influence making you toxic in the marketplace?

Dr. Alejandro Junger, in his book, Clean, writes that “90% of the time, people complain about everything and everyone.” Guess what makes you and everyone around you toxic?

Do you see an emerging pattern?

If flourishing means being fresh, green and productive over sustained periods of time, then it would appear from the good doctors that we most need to

1. Pursue love motivation as our #1 priority.

2. Establish new patterns of conversation that weed complaining from our vocabulary.

Unless of course, we really do want to continue the “cycle of quantum toxicity.” (I just had to include Dr. Junger’s quote—it so utterly describes old repulsive patterns.)

Assignment:  Take a piece of paper and draw a line down the middle from top to bottom.

Label one side Love and the other side Fear. Now log every emotion that you can think of on either one side or the other. You will find your list a great road map in navigating your flourishing life.

About Your Flourishing Life

As a child, Marlee Huber loved to ramble through gardens sampling juicy berries and delighting in the heady fragrance of roses. As an adult, she thrills at maintaining a country garden in the foothills of the Washington Cascades. Something happened in 2012 that changed everything for Marlee. She followed the love of her life as he bicycled across the continent from their home in the NW to his brother's home in the Virginia. Ninety days later she came home and has never been the same. After photographing the backroads and hamlets across America--all on auto, she came home and took an online photography course, read dozens of books on technique and vision and stepped out into a new career. Her passion is coaching young people to discover their brilliance. She calls it Life-Themes Coaching and during one nearly half-day session, she unpacks what makes you brilliant and one of a kind. Then she matches the discoveries with a photography session where she tells the story of your life with her camera. In her personal life, she is a wife, mother, and grandmother delighting in her flourishing family!
