In order to find a solution we must first understand the problem. Yesterday my wife and I decided to start shopping for a new living room set. We’ve always loved our current sofa, chairs and ottoman. The dimensions are perfect and the leather finish is attractive and durable. The problem was the seat foam. Over the years it had compacted in our favorite relaxation spots. There seemed to be no way to replace the foam. Since we were about to toss them anyway I decided to make a slight incision in the mesh covering beneath each unit.
As I explored the underside I discovered the foam was supported by a series of straps. To compensate for the compacted foam I inserted some spare bed pillows in between the straps and existing foam. A perfect fix that cost me nothing but some spare time. Now my living room furniture is as good as new.
Life also has its simple little fixes. Sometimes it’s a decision to simply move through fear and try something new. Other times we must recognize the problem, understand it and compensate accordingly. The solution to our biggest problem could be a single decision away.
I’m sure we’ve all done it. You know, covered our tracks in regards to a perceived failure or inability to conquer a fear. Most recently I discovered a client who is partners with a family member doing just that. He’d been telling a story and has now adopted it as truth. Years ago he had a business in terrible trouble. He faced a total collapse of all that he valued as his lack of business experience put him in a compromising position with the IRS. He made it through the process with the help of a tax attorney but afterwards he couldn’t seem to get back in the game. Soon an opportunity arose to invest in his relative’s business. It wasn’t intended to be a partnership. Yet, somehow he interpreted it as that. He began to say he gave up his business in favor of helping with his relative’s business. This was not the case. He stepped into the business because he wasn’t ready to continue with his. The wounds were too fresh and he needed time to heal. The danger was he’d been telling his story so often that he came to believe it. This was his more palatable truth. He wasn’t saved. He was the savior. Well, at least in his mind. The thing is he hates that business and often states he’s only there for his family member. The discontent in his situation is very disheartening. It is also affecting the business in a negative way. His heart is not in it. If your heart ain’t in it you’ll never win it. Unhappiness is a tell tale sign that something isn’t right. Uncover the truth and forgive yourself while moving forward accepting responsibility for the past and forgiving yourself today. It’s time to stop building on the sand.
The mind wants to protect us from danger and failure through fear. There is a very limited time that we have to initiate an idea that may challenge us. I met a man named Dante today who shared in interesting story. When he first began dating he’d hold his breath as long as he could before talking to a girl he had an interest in. This was his countdown. Once he took that first breath the conversation just flowed. Today I met Dante, Marina and Nanita all because I decided to count down and conquer. I’d been procrastinating about driving for Uber since initially downloading the app months ago. I just couldn’t bring myself to try. There was always some excuse I’d make. Many of which were out of fear. It wasn’t until I realized it was time to count down from five and just do it. I got online with Uber and within a minute I received my first request. 5 4 3 2 1 and I was out the door and on my way. Remember, we have five seconds to make a decision that could add so much to the life we love. Don’t give your mind the time to count you out. You can count up to infinity or just count down and act now. 5 4 3 2 1 😁

“Ron Ash brought me on board to do a weekly love and self-empowerment advice segment for his popular radio show based in Rhode Island and broadcast worldwide. I have given advice on networks from the BBC to MTV and found Ron by comparison to be an incredibly giving, organized and hard-working Program Director and Executive Producer. In other words, Ron was as great as anyone I’ve worked with at any other network. It was such a pleasure to work with him!
As an on-air coach, co-host and advice giver, you seek partnership with the shows producer and host. Ron wore many hats in this capacity and never once appeared to be anything less than supportive and in control in the most positive of ways.

If your motivation for financial success comes from the fear of being broke than your concentration is on being broke and your possibilities for success will be greatly diminished. You may succeed, but if your success is based on the feelings and emotions associated with financial freedom, joyous experiences and endless supply you will be free of fear and success will be immanent. www.TheIntuitiveLifeCoach.me
New Years Eve is symbolic of life’s many endings and new beginnings. In Hinduism Kāli is the Goddess of time, change, power and destruction, but without destruction there cannot be rebirth. So, Kāli is really the Goddess of rebirth as well. There cannot be a new beginning without the ending of the old. In Christianity Jesus had to die through crucifixion to experience resurrection. Again, the destruction of the temple which was rebuilt in three days. You see, these things are a characteristic of life, There will always be endings and beginnings that follow. A new year is only our annual symbolic representation of that change. It’s nothing more than an opportunity to experience those changes that we all experience throughout our lifetimes. With these things in mind, be blessed and at piece as 2014 ends and 2015 begins. How we deal with change will have everything to do with how we experience life. Love & Life, Ron Ash
Dating in the forties is a problem just waiting to happen. It seems like men just want to “play” and women want to “stay”. Truthfully, I don’t think men or women in their forties know what they want. It seems like they only think they know. The best course of action is to enjoy each interaction for what it is. Sooner or later the right person will show up. Try to stay away from “type casting” your potential companion. For example, “A good man or woman does this or that” and never make your new interest pay for the errors of the last. You shouldn’t put love in a box in your forties. We’ve all “been there done that” and now it’s our time. Also, be honest with yourself and share what you’d like from your potential love interest right out of the gate. This way if they are not up to it you won’t be wasting each others time. Most importantly, know your value! We are more than our looks. Our value goes beyond our sex appeal. There are qualities within us all that will stand the test of time. You’d probably be very surprised what men in their forties see as beautiful. All you really need to do is be the light that you are and everything else will fall into place. Be Peace, Ron Ash

How do you look at the life you loved and tell yourself it’s time to walk away? You’re not the same person and no longer fit into that same old dream. Memories are only recollections of who you used to be. Now is the cornerstone for all the building blocks and the branches of a tree. Your roots will always secure you but it’s your leaves that make you free.
