WHAT WE NEED TO DO DIFFERENTLY IN THE 21st CENTURY

Wondering about how to respond to today's challenges?
I had the opportunity to be interviewed by LinkedIn specialist Beth Granger. You can see the full interview.  We covered neuroscience, change, vibrational voting and why coaching emerged to assist during this time. 

Who do you want to BE during this time?
21st CENTURY THINKING

We are living in interesting times!  The 2020's will be one of the decades that transforms life as humans have known it into something very different and new.  
 
It helps me to believe we chose to come to the planet at this time to experience and participate in the most enormous shifts in human consciousness we’ve ever experienced as a species.  It’s truly chaos – great opportunity riding on dangerous winds.
 
David Houle, futurist and author, says we are only now moving from Legacy Thinking (20th Century) to true 21stCentury Thinking.  He adds that it will be normal to experience cognitive dissonance as we go back and forth between the two during this time of transition.  Author Jean Houston says we’re being upgraded to a whole new operating system.  We can expect the ride will be a bumpy one, but exciting.
 
What is 21st Century thinking?
 
It involves new skills including communication, collaboration, critical thinking, coaching and creativity as we remake our human institutions to suit the needs of this time.   We will have to unlearn old ways of being and thinking and embrace, learn and re-learn these new skills. is a text block.

WHAT WE FOCUS ON EXPANDS

“I was once asked why I don't participate in anti-war demonstrations. I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I'll be there.”  Mother Teresa
 
The recent US events spurred by the murder of George Floyd have created many “anti-racist” memes, themes and organized efforts to eradicate racism.  We are all called to examine how we as a culture have allowed injustices to occur and what can be done to create change.
 
I want to remind everyone who will listen that a metaphysical truth that what we focus on expands.  What we resist, persists. (The actual quote is from Carl Jung noted Psychiatrist and says, “What you resist not only persists, but will grow in size.”) 
 
The war on drugs has helped to create a nation of addicts. https://lagunatreatment.com/addiction-research/war-on-drugs/
The war on crime engenders more crime. https://time.com/3746059/war-on-crime-history/.  Being anti-racist will prolong racism.  Let’s focus on what we DO want:  being pro-respect, pro-kindness, pro-fairness and pro-justice.  This is the frequency I want to attune myself to.  I hope you join me.
