Five minutes of compassionate, gentle truth.
I don’t care if you’re 100 pounds overweight, $100,000 in debt, or 100% lonely.
You are beautiful, loving and loved…right now.
I see through the disappointment, frustration and desperation.
And I see it in that beautiful, morbidly obese woman at the gym.
Find your beauty.
And find someone else who has it too. Discover it in each other.
I have a good number of female friends and coaching clients. At some point in our friendship/professional relationship I refer to nearly all of them as something similar to the title of this article.
There are two main reasons for my use of that statement..
1. I mean it every time I say it. I find the beauty in each person I hang out with. There’s always something. A smile, long flowing hair, a lilt in the voice. In everyone who crosses my universe there’s something that’s adorable. Even if it’s not their defining characteristic, it’s there. I’ve done this with women age 14 to 70, and sometimes with my fellow males.
2. When I point out the gorgeousness of the person I’m hanging out with it tends to elicit more of the same. I try to be careful in the way I put it out there…always respectful and playful. Usually flirty. If someone’s not open to my brand of coaching and/or friendship I probably wouldn’t attract them into my life.
If they are in alignment with me they appreciate the positive attention. It’s absolutely amazing how people (not just talking women here) need to hear good things said about them. Most of us crave it, though we’ve been socialized not to own up to that fact.
I’ve seen people absolutely conflicted in their lives…twisted up like a pretzel. They’re scared, lonely, sometimes desperate and working on what they think is a challenge of their intellect.
Then they get reintroduced to their own beauty…in a loving and playful way. And a flood of emotions come forth. Profound stuff happens. Pain they’ve been hanging onto forever comes to the surface, then gets washed away.
Energy that’s been tied up in self doubt and regret is now free to go exploring. And those seemingly impossible life problems get solved in the most amazing of ways.
Know anyone who can use some loving kindness on your part? Try giving some away.
See what happens. Most likely both of you will start feeling your inner and outer beauty…
and your POWER.
Written in 2008. I’m practicing for when our kids fly back from seeing their grandparents in a few weeks. See if this gets you in the mood.
So I’m sitting outside Terminal Two at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix. Have a little time to kill before my flight leaves and I’m just taking life in.
One of the really great things about this particular spot is watching people being picked up. Twenty minutes ago I watched two twenty somethings – a man and woman – go absolutely crazy with joy over the young lady who picked them up. It reminded me of the zenith of joy I used to watch in people who won jackpots on the game shows I watched as a boy. Their relatives would come out of the audience and have a wild celebration with them.
About five minutes after that I saw a middle aged woman greet two younger men. Looked liked her son and his friend. More sedate, but she was obviously happy to see both of them. Hugs, not nearly as demonstrative as the twenty somethings before them.
And about two minutes ago, inside the terminal where I’m now typing two grown men in cowboy hats and jeans. Doing that fake slow motion thing that ended in a manly hug. I wondered – are they brothers? Old friends? Just two guys who really enjoy each others company and aren’t afraid to show it?
Yeah, this must be one of the most joyous places around. Sure, a few people are anxiously waiting for their parties or nervously checking on the status of flights.
And if you put your focus on them you’d come away with a completely different impression of airports and their emotional temperature.
Me? I’m keeping my senses open for signs of more joyful meetings, not to mention kids getting excited about take offs.
And in a few hours I get to have one of those happy reunions with my own loved ones!
Put those image in your consciousness for a while. See if they don’t put a little spring in your step.
I am AMAZED with the progress of the people who are playing with me in THE END GAME. There’s smooching where there was none before. There are school field trips being paid for. There is speaking engagements being booked, new clients, money being made, and lots of moods turning from fearful to confident. It’s all leading up to the next project.

Another one of those gym moments.
When you permit a different picture of yourself to be the dominant one you carry around in your head…
And when you hang with people who are where you’d like to be…
You BECOME it.
Like my lady friend at the gym did.
Four and a half minutes of out of breath wisdom.
The next project is rollin’ along. And soon enough I’m going to invite YOU to be part of it. Enter your name and email address on the form to the right to stay in the loop.
