When One’s Imagination and Perception Becomes One’s Reality

Monday, September 1st, 2014

Even though most of us believe that our imagination and perceptions are accurate, when they are confirmed it is very reaffirming.

During my yearlong journey of gratitude, some five years ago, I traveled around the United States and abroad to meet with 44 people who have been very important in my life.  During these visits I was very explicit in my expressions of deep appreciation for all that they had done for me. It was not only a gratifying experience but I also imagined that I would never have any regrets in the future for things I wish I had said when any of these 44 individuals pass on.

One of the 44 on my journey was Dr. Fred Jervis.   He was an extraordinary human being and no one taught me more about a way of thinking than Fred.   He was a real life changer for me and for many of the people I have coached over the years and for thousands of others.

As a student at the University of New Hampshire, he played varsity baseball and basketball. His education was interrupted by war. As a lieutenant in the 11th Armored Division, he lost his sight in a mine explosion in Germany.  Notwithstanding, Fred completed his education at UNH and earned a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Columbia University. He served as Director of the Counseling Center at UNH and then as Professor of Psychology. He also completed a post-doctoral fellowship in organizational theory at Harvard Business School. Fred left academia after 20 years to found the Center for Constructive Change in Durham, along with his wife, Janis. The Center provided educational and consulting services to a wide array of individuals and entities and I was blessed to be one of them.

It is not possible for me in a short piece to adequately express how much this man meant in my life.  When I visited with him in his home in New Hampshire in 2009, I was able to more fully express the specific ways that he impacted my life.  It was so gratifying to have made this opportunity.

At the time, I both perceived and imagined that when Fred passed away that I would not have any regrets for things I wish I had expressed to him.

Sadly, Fred passed away last week.  I indeed felt no regrets for anything I might have said.  It reconfirmed what I had previously imagined and perceived and it was very reaffirming indeed.   Losing someone who has been very special in your life is always difficult and sad but to not have any regrets for things you might have said makes this passing less painful.

It is with this new “reality” that I encourage each of you to express your gratitude while everyone is alive and well.

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

When I was first approached by Hay House to write my book, This is the Moment! about my yearlong journey to express profound gratitude for the 44 significant relationships in my life, I did not realize how influential Louse Hay was in the transformational arena.  I have since learned more about this amazing woman and her talent for helping so many people make significant changes in their lives.

With the help of Hay House publishing I welcome the opportunity to share with you one of Louise’s latest projects. Details are below.

For countless people around the world, the words of Louise Hay have served as a beacon, leading them out of the darkness of despair and into the light of a better life.

Take a peek into their new book with this excerpt:

It’s a warm November day in Tampa, and Louise has just delivered the welcome address to more than 3,000 attendees of Hay House’s “I Can Do It” conference. Standing at the side of the room, I watch as the sold-out crowd erupts in affectionate applause when she announces that she’s in her ninth decade, and it’s the best one of her life so far. It’s such an inspiring moment…

I wonder what beliefs have served Louise as she’s aged, and she gives me a big smile. “I believe that I am a big, strong, healthy girl with lots of good energy. I am so pleased to have the energy I do, to be able to live the life I do, and to enjoy the company of fabulous friends. I believe that Life loves me. I believe that I am safe at all times. I believe that only good experiences lie before me, and I bless others and know that Life blesses and prospers me. I know that all is well in my world.

“I also believe that laughter is more important than worrying about wrinkles. I find myself laughing more. Fewer things bother me. As a matter of fact, I feel freer than I did when I was a child. It’s as though my good thoughts have returned me to a state of innocence that feels blissful. I kid myself and make jokes more often these days. I have cultivated a mental outlook that allows me to see life from the most positive advantage. This positive, loving, grateful, joyous outlook attracts to me the greatest life—and that’s why this is the best decade so far.”

The candid conversations between Cheryl and Louise will empower you, open your heart and mind, and give you the tools you need to create the exceptional life you’ve always dreamed of.
