Our Mind/Body/Spirit Story

What does it mean to Thrive?

Learning to Thrive means understanding our Mind/Body/Spirit story.

  • It means way more than physical pleasures.
  • It means holding the Elegant Arts (appreciation, patience, forgiveness, acceptance, freedom, silence, and trust) in an enthusiastic, vibrant embrace.
  • It means celebrating and sharing our connection to the wellspring of creativity, imagination, and inspiration on a daily basis.
  • It means embodying our highest source of Self and reflecting that Constant Traveler knowing (aka wisdom).
  • It means expressing love as relationship – love of others through service, and love of self as self-care of our body, our mind, and our spirit.
  • It means honoring our personal Standard of Excellence.
  • It means respecting and trusting our innate abilities to recover and rebound from hardship.
  • It means enjoying the ride as much as the destination.  Eyes on the Prize success is measured by how deeply we activate the process.

I enjoy the personality of The Count.  I am not referring to the Sesame Street Count (although he rocks!), but The Count on the television show Counting Cars.  His way of expressing himself sets him apart.  He is a super salesman, and believable when he shares his enthusiasm for what he calls a, “a sweet ride.” When he sees a cool vehicle, he beams from ear to ear.  It is clear that he enjoys the work he does and the clients he serves.  It is clear that driving a sweet ride is a joyful experience for him.

To Thrive means embracing, celebrating, sharing, embodying, expressing, honoring, respecting, trusting and enjoying…the ride.

Want to experience en-joy-ment?  Wrap your ride in joy.

Drivers Wanted…

The slogan for Volkswagen is “Drivers Wanted.”  I think it has been quite successful.  This slogan can also apply to a life designed to thrive.

As we sit in the driver’s seat and navigate the hills, valleys, plains, freeways, speed bumps, potholes, and parking lots (parking lots are anarchy!) of life, we’d best enjoy the ride.

Is your Mind/Body/Spirit story a tale of a life designed to Thrive?
