This is a reprint of an article I wrote 2 years ago. Happy Thanksgiving! Please share.
Although many of the First Nations in Canada had a long tradition of celebrating the harvest and giving thanks this time of year, the very first formally recognized Thanksgiving Day began with Martin Frobisher.
Frobisher and his crew had been trying to find a northern passage to the Pacific Ocean and to celebrate a safe return from that search Frobisher celebrated with a Thanksgiving celebration.
In the year of 1578 he held a formal Thanksgiving celebration in Newfoundland. This was one of the first Thanksgiving Days held in Canada.
You may not have taken on something as risky to personal safety as a search for the Northwest Passage but life can get very challenging at times and it can be difficult to see the positives or reasons to be thankful.
There exist as of recent years a full body of research based on Positive psychology; the basis of which states that the more positive one is the higher your degree of life satisfaction and the greater your wellbeing.
To me giving thanks, or let’s say, finding reasons to give thanks can be tied closely to Positive psychology…so why not give thanks....be positive...benefit greatly from this mind set.
Life Coaching Activities for Thanksgiving
1. If you don’t already have one, create a gratitude list. At the end of each day note at least one thing for which you can say thanks or be grateful.
2. This weekend or sometime this week email, phone or a drop a note to someone, possibly from your past, who was a help to you in your career or life. Won’t they be surprised! They may even copy your actions.
3. Daily, give a recognition to those at work or in your life who are integral to your success but sometimes are taken for granted.
4. Become aware of your personal health and abilities and give a thanks to yourself for all that you have accomplished.
5. Create a Focus of Gratitude. It creates a Positive energy and flow and benefits you and everyone around you.

It is like a moan and groan epidemic.
Did you know that moaning and groaning are not good for your health?
Did you know that your thoughts direct your behavior?
Did you know that your thoughts influence your health?
Did you know that you become what you think?
Each and every one of these complaints results in:
Think about it! The Woos lead you to both physical and emotional dis-ease. You have a choice. Choose to let go of the complaints. Switch your Focus to all the Positives you have going on. They are there, take time to look.
My Mother always said, ‘if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all’.

Hope everyone had a happy and safe summer! The weather here on the east coast of Canada was amazing....lots of time for golf and bbqing.
I have been busy with business and family weddings. My youngest son was married in June and now my second oldest son is getting married in mid September....lots of planning happening around here.
Planning, planning and more planning. That's it isn't it? For everything to turn out the way we want, we need to plan..........for success to happen, we need to plan.
I call it the 3 Ps....Plan, Plan and then Plan some more.
Planning for Success
I would like to share with you Life Coaching Questions that I use with my clients, starting with a favorite quote of mine.
In Lewis Carroll’s book, Alice In Wonderland, Alice asks The Cat which way she should go.
Alice: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?
The Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.
Alice: I don't much care where.
The Cat: Then it doesn't much matter which way you go.
This question is crucial...the answer to the question is key to success. Give it thought. Write it down. Writing it down gets it out off your head and makes it more real.
Make sure the answer you give is one you want. It should be appropriate and realistic. Dream, infact dream big but make sure your goal is yours.
Write down each question or enter into a computer program. Next take time to think about your response to each. Note your answer.
Life Coaching Questions to Motivate and move to Success
1. What do you really, really, really want?
2. Why do you want it?
3. What is success to you?
4. What does it look like?
5. How will you know when you have become successful?
6. How will you know when you have found it?
7. What is holding you back from getting it?
8. Do you believe you can get it?
9. What motivates you?
10. What are your intelligences and talents?
11. How can you make the greatest difference in your own life?
12. Who do you have to Become in order to achieve what you Want to achieve?
No body can move you, you must take action to move yourself!

Life Performance Coach
Good morning to all my subscribers! Hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer season. Wow, life has been very busy for me with two family weddings this summer. Wonderful but BUSY!!
The other day I was feeling somewhat overwhelmed with all this busy and struggled for awhile until I took a deep breath and reminded myself of what I would offer my clients who are overwhelmed.
I sat down and with my favorite 'pen & paper' I started my list of everything that had to be done. I would like to share that with you as summer is for relaxing but weddings, family visits, camping, travel can overwhelm and spoil the enjoyment.
Hope you find the following useful.
Get Pencil(pen) & paper....I call ...........
Think it. Ink It
When things stay in our head they get all jumbled up and can seem overwhelming.
Exercise # 1.
(a). With paper and pencil(pen) write out everything that you can think of that needs to be done over the next month.
(b). Now next to each item categorize them by A, B, or C, with A being the most important thing to be accomplished...B being the 2nd most important and C being not as important as A or B.
(c). Okay, now create separate lists; an A list, a B list and a C list.
(d). After each item on the A list write down a completeion date for each item.
(e). Next take the first item on List A and write out the smallest steps that you have to take to make it happen. Ask yourself, 'what is the very 1st thing I have to do to make it happen'? Example. If it means making a phone call then the first thing is to get the correct phone #.
REPEAT (d) & (e) with List B and List C.
Hope this helps bring more relaxing time to your life.
If you don't use this summer it may come in handy as September approaches and kids head back to school.

Good Monday morning, it is sunny but cool here today in Florida. It is Monday so that makes it a writing day for me. I have just finished the first draft of my 3rd life coaching book and hope to have it published by mid March; maybe I'll wait until the 17th, St. Patrick's Day to celebrate my Irish roots.
On the weekend one of my future daughter-in-laws ( I have two ) sent me a list of 37 Tips For a Better Life...author unknown. I have taken 20 items from this list for you to think about, use and share.
I keep saying that life is not easy but a great deal of that 'Better Life' is up to you; it is in your hands.
20 things to Better Your Life, taken from 37 Tips For a Better Your Life....author unknown.

Life Coaching Activities & Powerful Questions
Monday, January 30, 2012
Valentine's Day, is an annual celebration of love. The day is named after Saint Valentine and is a day of chocolates and flowers; of hugs & kisses; heart shaped everything and the color red.
I thought I would ask some Valentine Day/ Love related questions to get you in the Feb 14th
mood. And help you create more love awareness in your life. Note, I said I’d present the questions…it’s your Life….. I’ll leave the answers to you.
I will also offer you some Valentine love quotes….use them if you like.
What is love?
How often I wonder has this question been asked. I'm sure there are many who would say there is no such thing as love.
I remember years ago working with a young woman who was totally controlled by her boy friend…she thought this was love.
No doubt our definition of love will come from our personal experiences and perceptions.
Early February sees young children busy preparing cards to send to favorite friends.
Grandparents are purchasing red items of clothing for grandchildren, to avoid the sugary gifts.
Lovers are searching for, ‘the just right’ gift.
Red heart shapes fill the shops.
Valentine’s Day Life Coaching Questions
1. What is love?
2. How does it show itself?
3. In red boxes of chocolates? In a dozen red roses? Maybe.
4. Or is love shown in other ways?
5. How were you shown love as a child?
6. Did it only happen on Valentine’s Day?
7. How do you show love to your children? Grandchildren?
8. How do you express love to your spouse; partner?
9. If I asked them that question, what would they say?
10. On a scale of 1-10 with 1 being ‘almost none’ and 10 being awesome…..how much love is in your life right now?
11. How do you define love?
12. Do you love yourself?
13. How do you show self love?
14. Do you think self love is essential to give you the ability to love others?
15. Do you want and need more love in your life?
Valentine's Day Love Quotes...share them...use them with your loved ones.
"Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit." Khalil Gibran
"Looking back, I have this to regret, that too often when I loved, I did not say so." David Grayson
"Two lovers in the rain have no need of an umbrella." Japanese Proverb
"Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs." William Shakespeare
"Her lips on his could tell him better than all her stumbling words." Margaret Mitchell
Wishing each of you all the love you deserve.
Now a quote from me:
"Love yourself to the fullest and your life will be filled with love, always." Phyllis Reardon
