If I’m any kind of life coach at all, it’s essential that I get some perspective from the personal events of today and extract the lesson for myself just as I would for a client. So here goes.

Stop lowering your expectations. In fact, raise them. A lot. You deserve fantastic, exceptional, luminous.

Listen to people when they tell you who they are. Seeing the glass half-full is a nice default way of being, but it’s not always your best route. Sometimes realistic trumps idealistic.

Manifest the vision, baby.
