Last year the internship program at Essential Coaching Services gave six college students some actual, on-the-ground work experience that supported their studies and helped them successfully compete in the job market.Read More
Back to basic physics today. I’m sure you remember that inertia ~ described by the first of Newton’s Laws of Motion ~ is a fundamental resistance to change. Things (and people) are likely to continue doing what they are doing unless acted on by an outside force. But did you know that there is another, more hidden force that can keep you from achieving your goals and dreams?Read More
I want to share a website that you might find interesting. The Blue Zones Project studies the longest lived people on the planet to try to discover why they have such incredible longevity. They offer a lot of great resources …. I personally love the happiness test best!
Remember your high school physics class? As it turns out, physics has a lot to teach us about life.
Among the first things you’ll learn in any physics class are Newton’s Laws of Motion. Newton was around before Einstein, so he didn’t know about relativity. Instead, he defined the basic laws about the motion of physical objects. The first of these three laws, the law of inertia, states that in order for the motion of an object to change, an outside force must act upon it. A moving object will stay in motion unless stopped, and a resting object will remain stationary unless pushed.
Although you might not think of yourself as a physical object, these laws relate to you as well. If you are on a particular path, you are most likely to stay on it unless some outside force pushes on you, causing you to change. If that path is defined by a commitment to your dreams, I applaud you. But if it is not, you are essentially stationary ~ and you are likely to remain so unless something happens to change that. In order to create anything different than what you have now, you must apply some sort of force to overcome your inertia.
So, my questions to you this week are these: are you in motion towards your dreams, or are you stationary? Is what you are currently doing going to take you into the future you want to have? And how big of a push will it take for you to shift?
Remember, you must stay in motion. Overcoming inertia is not something that occurs only once. Be vigilant, and give yourself the pushes you need to create the life you want.Read More
