A note from Mark Felber
As we individually aspire to realize our dreams and aspirations for 2009, keep in mind the words of Abraham Maslow, "Self actualizing people have a deep feeling of identification, sympathy, and affection for human beings in general. They feel kinship and connection, as if all people were members of a single family."

Finding an Antidote to the Poison of Shame

Every time Grace--a gifted drama teacher--taught a class, she returned home with an awful sinking feeling. She didn't understand why. "I had such fun and did a great job," she thought to herself. Yet, rather than expand from the delight and exuberance of her time in the classroom, she contracted.

Grace's contraction comes from the experience of shame, a poison that keeps us from experiencing our own joy and disconnects us from the aliveness within and around us. Whereas guilt is associated with a particular memory or event and having done something wrong, the feeling of shame is about being wrong at our core. It is a debilitating feeling we have about ourselves that comes from a core belief that we are basically and unalterably flawed.

The Fears That Prevent Us from Speaking Up

Do you value being seen and heard?

Do you want to have truly successful relationships?

Do you want to make an impact on others?

Then speak up!

Of course, for some people, that's easier said than done. You might prefer to train wild lions than tell another person what's really on your mind. But it is possible to develop an assertiveness connected to head and heart that clears the way for honest, empowered living--without being rude to others or surrendering to "nice-itis."

Go to full story.
