Catching Up Day.

A living cell requires energy not only for all its functions, but also for the maintenance of its structure.  ~Albert Szent-Gyorgyi Doug thought we should spend some time working on our foundation today, instead of writing a new post. I agreed with him… Our blog is growing much quicker than I expected. I wanted to […]

Enlightened Monkey Knows Himself.

A human being has so many skins inside, covering the depths of the heart. We know so many things, but we don’t know ourselves! Why, thirty or forty skins or hides, as thick and hard as an ox’s or bear’s, cover the soul. Go into your own ground and learn to know yourself there. ~Meister […]

Persistence Of The Monkeys…

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.  ~Calvin Coolidge Knowing who you are and where […]

Monkeys To The Rescue!

It’s a great feeling to finally know what you want to be when you grow up. It took me 42 years, but I think I’m ready to move out of Mom’s basement (just kidding, my mom has passed on to monkey Nirvana, and she didn’t have a basement). At the rate I’m going, I should […]

Anyone who poops in their hand to throw it at a frustration clearly has not thought the process through… It’s time to review what we’re learned about ourselves and our desires. There’s more work to be done, but a bit of pulling together and distilling of […]

Criticism Isn’t You.

How do you feel after the last  exercises about the inner critic and the exterior critics? If you’re like Doug and me, you’re miffed that all this baggage has had a hand in shaping your self image. These unconscious ideas were planted by others into our young fertile minds. After awhile, we became our own […]

To The Other Critics (Yes You).

Doug and I felt good telling our inner critic exactly how we feel. We thought if doing it once feels good, doing it twice will be three times better (monkeys aren’t great at math).  There are lots of people who held us back in the past. Others have purposely or maybe unintentionally undermined our dreams […]

I’ll Show You!

Doug and I feel a great deal of relief now that we realize that much of what’s holding us back originates inside our own heads. This is something that can be changed. We looked at the picture of our inner critic and decided to write him a letter. Our inner negativity needs to know that […]
