It’s the Launch of Mindfulness Monday™- and You’re Invited!

1 Comment »

Change Your World with Mindfulness MondayEverything that we say, do, and create first begins in thought. Everything.

I can’t begin to describe how powerful each of us is – how powerful you are. Every thought we have is creating. For better or worse. Individually and collectively.

Most of us have no idea what we’re thinking. We think we’re thinking positively, we’re not. We think we are focused on what we truly want – we’re not. We keep living each day like we did yesterday – stressed, uninspired, trying to figure out our true purpose.

The good news is we all have the ability to be aware of our thoughts, know if the thought is working for us or against us, and choose powerful thoughts that serve our purpose.

Mindfulness Monday isn’t about thinking “happy” thoughts. It’s about choosing thoughts that are in alignment with who we truly are and what we truly wish to create in this world.

We all have the ability to turn worry into wonder, fear into inspiration, stress into purpose. We do. It takes practice.

We’ve mastered all the thoughts that are not working for us. Now it’s time to master thoughts that serve our purpose.

A Year of Mindfulness

With 60,000 thoughts a day, you may be wondering where to start. Many people, having read my book or attended one of my workshops, have asked me for support and coaching, on a regular basis, to help them deepen their experience and make Managing Thought a way of living.

That’s why I created Mindfulness Monday, my new 52-week online course in Managing Thought®. I believe this is the very best way to change the way you think and re-open your connection with your highest awareness.

Mindfulness Monday gives you training a little bit at a time, spread out over a whole year.

A Guided Experience

I am your guide and mentor for this year of Mindful Mondays and I am committed to ensuring that you get what you need from this course.

Each powerful thought brings significant results. As these powerful thoughts are repeated and mastered gradually over time, we start experiencing our true nature: We are happy, healthy, creative, expansive, full of energy, and inspired. We are fully present, on purpose, at peace, and playful.

Our lives and our work are filled with joy and aliveness.

In addition, through the Managing Thought Community, you also give and receive support of a whole community of men and women who are practicing managing thoughts in all sorts of ways and places—businesses, churches, hospitals, schools, meetings, improving their relationships, taking tests, and raising their children.

Every moment is a new moment. And every moment we have the ability to choose who we are and what we wish to create in this world.

When we manage our thoughts, it is the best gift we give to ourselves, our family, friend and workmates and through the ripple effect, the world.

Confucius said way back when: To put the world right in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must first cultivate ourselves.

It’s my personal mission to help change the world…one thought at a time.

I look forward to sharing this adventure with you and invite you to sign up today at a special VIP price.

May your thoughts bring you peace and inspire you.

A Women’s Guide to Thriving After Prostate Cancer

1 Comment »

A Woman's Guide to Thriving After Prostate CancerI met Cindie Hubiak when I presented a workshop on Managing Thought® to the Board of the Arizona Society of CPAs. Cindie, the President of the Society, impressed me on so many levels.

First, that she engaged me. She feels very strongly in giving her members tools to help them thrive as CPAs, as business owners, as leaders, and as human beings. Cindie clearly understands the significance of self-awareness and choosing thoughts that are aligned with who we truly are and what what we wish to create in our lives, our businesses, and our relationships.

Second, her ability to involve and inspire her team and her members. She is clearly of highest and best service, has fun, and achieves significant and meaningful results.

Third, we both tell people we are glad they were born when we wish them a happy birthday. :)

What most impressed me is Cindie’s personal story and her commitment to helping women whose partners are suffering or recovering from prostate cancer.   She provides the tools to honor and grieve your losses, strengthen your relationship, and lead fulfilling lives — mentally, emotionally, sexually, and spiritually.

If you or someone you know is dealing with prostate cancer, order her book: A Women’s Guide to Thriving after Prostate Cancer.

Her book isn’t just for women. It’s for men who want to empower the women in their lives and ensure their relationships thrive.

Also, visit Cindie’s website It’s an amazing resource.

P.S. Thank you, Cindie for the difference you are making.  I am honored to be included in your book as a Resource for Moving from Surviving to Thriving.  You show so beautifully and poignantly how managing our thoughts leads to self-awareness, creativity, and a life of gratitude even when we are experiencing cancer.

We All Want a Life Well-Lived

A Life Well LivedWe all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same. – Anne Frank

In my Managing Thought® workshops, whether I am with 6th graders, teenagers, college professors, CEOs, soccer moms, life coaches, spiritual teachers and people of different religions and ethnicities – everyone comes up with the same list of thoughts that aren’t working for them and the same list of what they truly want from a life well-lived.

Most everyone is surprised by this. Anne Frank would not have been surprised. And I am not surprised.

We are like snowflakes. We are each unique AND we are all snowflakes.

The next series of daily inspiration thoughts of the day are powerful statements and questions on creating a life well-lived.  There are three posts a day.

Follow or visit Managing Thought on Twitter or “like” Managing Thought on Facebook to receive them as they post or come back to this blog daily and view the Daily Inspiration on Twitter feed in the right-hand menu bar.

If you want to focus on creating a life well-lived, feel free to take the Managing Thought® How Do Your Thoughts Rule Your World? ®  Self Assessment. You can store your results, re-take the assessment, and do side-by-side comparisons to see just how much you have changed. You can also set a reminder to take it again, see how you are doing and choose what you want to focus on next.

Special thanks to my FB Friend, Linda Swindling, Negotiation and Bargaining Expert, Author and Speaker extraordinaire, for posting this quote by Anne Frank.

Making a Difference

1 Comment »

Every moment, I am creating the future. Every thought, word and action of mine makes a difference—for  better or worse—in the lives of others. After I say what I say and do what I do, I don’t often know the difference I am making. Sometimes, my humanity kicks in and I wonder if a blog, or a talk, makes any difference at all.

A friend of mine called the other today to tell me about a blog written by Christy Morgan, a young chef, and a new author and speaker who made her debut at the French Meadows Annual Macrobiotic Conference and Camp that I attended a couple weeks ago. Seems I made a difference for the better.  To read what Christy learned, click here.

And while you are at it, check out Christy’s new cookbook Blissful Bites: Vegan Meals That Nourish Mind, Body, and Planet and Like her facebook page, The Blissful Chef.  Christy is making a difference in the lives of those who are busy AND are committed to eating healthy, naturally, and happily. I have already made and enjoyed several recipes from the book and they are quick, easy, and delicious!

The Books That Influenced Me

No Comments »

Books that Influenced Mary Lore I am often asked what are the books that influenced me.

For about three years now, it’s been my intention to compile and share the list. I can now do the happy dance because I have finally fulfilled the intention! And I expanded on it, adding links to Amazon and Barnes & Noble, if you want to check it out or buy it.

I am excited to share these books with you. As I was writing my comments on how each book influenced me, it struck me what a gift it is that writers and teachers give to the world. The ripple effect is of considerable magnitude.

I can see how my work continues the work of all human ancestors and I am so thankful for this opportunity to serve.
