I subscribe to his mailing list and was interested to see his latest email which read: ‘I posted a video on YouTube that, frankly, isn’t what I usually post. It was on a super soft topic: LOVE.’
Here is the video: LOVE: Finding it, Opening to it, Generating it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afcPtpH9QUw
It includes an eyes closed process where Brendon invites you to see the faces of those who love you, to feel them as if you are embracing them right now….
I found myself sharing this link on Twitter; there is a line in this video that particularly resonated with me:-
….embrace them with the spirit of love that you have been giving to your career”

Love is who you are, we sometimes forget this when we are busy forging a career
You must first give the gift of love to yourself.
Those of you looking to get a work life balance will know how easy it is to take for granted those around you, the people who love you and who are already on your side. (Including yourself, be your own best friend). Do not take anyone’s love for granted, in my opinion, there is nothing worse than achieving and having no one to share your joy with.
Make time to define what is important to you, what you value, who and what you hold dear.
Our values can change over the decades – it is worth taking stock at least every 7 years or whenever you feel unfulfilled
Give yourself the gift of defining specifically what you VALUE in life and in your career. The two are intrinsically linked – when you find the work you love it will not feel like work.
My Myers-Briggs psychometric profile switched from ENTP to ENFJ around 7 years ago.
My top values in life are Love, Courage and Fun. I create the possibility every day to notice when and where those values occur.
Changing direction and learning new things can make you feel un-certain. Stress is a feeling of being out of control. The irony is life begins at the end of our comfort zone. Our level of happiness is in direct proportion to the amount of un-certainty we can comfortably live with.
The Opposite of Love is FEAR (Hate is just a bi product of fear) Gratitude; being thankful dissolves fear.
When singer Jane McDonald wanted to overcome stage fright her coach said switch you energy from fear to excitement
False Evidence Appearing Real or Feeling Excited And Ready? ~ The energy of excitement is such FUN and the decision is yours.
Courage is mastery of fear, not the absence of fear.
When feeling stressed ASK yourself WHAT would LOVE do?
☆¨¯`♥ ¸.☆¨¯`♥ ¸.☆¨¯`♥
Love will increase your confidence, your courage, your creativity and your self-worth
Love is who you already are, before you take stock or do any type of values exercise, stop and think about what you are already grateful for.
