I need your inspiration

inspiration Jan 31, 2024

Today's post is a little bit of a role reversal.

Instead of me trying to inspire you, I need a little bit of your inspiration.

I've created a video about my talk about Belonging. 

You can see it here: www.drlauracole.com/belonging

This talk incorporates my new thought teaching and sign language. I'm passionate about both. And I need some inspiration from you:

Who could I send it to?

I've thought about churches and I've thought about new thought conferences, but I need your ideas of other places that I can give the message of what I teach and interpret through music and ASL.

So, if you have any suggestions, send me a note at [email protected].

I want to get out there and teach these principles to as many people as possible.

Thank you in advance.

I hope you have an amazing day!


The Tip of the Iceberg


Today, I want to talk about the tip of the iceberg – what's hidden under the surface of our lives.

There are two perspectives we can consider when talking about the iceberg...

1. Understanding Others

First, when we look at other people, it's easy to feel jealous of what we superficially see on the outside. It might be their success, their relationships, or even their material possessions. But you never know what's going on inside. What you see is just the tip of the iceberg. We all have struggles that no one else can see, so please keep that in mind.

2. Recognizing Your Own Power

Second, our physical self is just the tip of an iceberg that we can see above the water. There is a vast greatness and beauty in the invisible. It is the source, spirit, God (whichever name you use) who works in amazing ways!

Remember, our physical is limited. We can tap into that resource of spirit and love and all of that invisible power that we can't see. 

I want to encourage you to dive beneath the surface of the visible world. Tap into that invisible spirit. Let it know what you would love to achieve, and start chasing that dream.

Letting Go of Guilt


Living with guilt can destroy our lives.

Watch the attached video to learn how to let go of guilt and bring joy back into your life.

“The psychology of guilt is rooted in self-judgement.
It is the sense that we have done something wrong.
It is anger turned inward arising when we violate our belief system”

(from the book Life Lessons by Elizabeth Kubler Ross & David Kessler)

It is okay to feel guilty if you know internally you have done something wrong
because it keeps us guided on a better path.

BUT remaining in guilt and staying with the thoughts of I am not worthy is not good for us.

When you do feel guilty, make the commitment to make a different choice the next time and then FORGIVE YOURSELF.

You must move on and out of that negativity, so you can love yourself as others
love you.

Plan for Tomorrow, But Live for Today


I‌ ‌am‌ ‌back‌ ‌with‌ ‌you‌ ‌today‌ ‌with‌ ‌my‌ ‌beautiful‌ ‌niece,‌ ‌Emma.‌ ‌She‌ ‌has‌ ‌another‌ ‌lesson‌ ‌for‌ ‌me‌ ‌today.‌ ‌I‌ ‌call‌ ‌it‌ ‌“Planning‌ ‌for‌ ‌tomorrow‌, ‌but‌ ‌living‌ ‌for‌ ‌today.”‌ ‌

It‌ ‌is‌ ‌important‌ ‌for‌ ‌us‌ ‌to‌ ‌look‌ ‌toward‌ ‌the‌ ‌future,‌ ‌to‌ ‌keep‌ ‌making‌ ‌plans‌ ‌and‌ ‌taking‌ action‌ ‌steps‌ ‌to‌ ‌get‌ ‌us‌ ‌closer‌ ‌to‌ ‌making‌ ‌our‌ ‌dreams‌ ‌a‌ ‌reality,‌ ‌BUT‌ ‌we‌ ‌only‌ ‌have‌ ‌
today.‌ ‌We‌ ‌only‌ ‌have‌ ‌this‌ ‌moment.‌ ‌

For‌ ‌example,‌ ‌babies‌ ‌crawl‌ ‌for‌ ‌a‌ ‌very‌ ‌short‌ ‌period‌ ‌of‌ ‌time.‌ ‌I‌ ‌did‌ ‌not‌ ‌know‌ ‌this‌ ‌with‌ ‌my‌ ‌first‌ ‌child.‌ ‌When‌ ‌I‌ ‌had‌ ‌my‌ ‌second‌ ‌child,‌ ‌I‌ ‌did‌ ‌better‌ ‌at‌ ‌cherishing‌ ‌that‌ ‌time.‌ ‌

That‌ ‌is‌ ‌where‌ ‌Emma‌ ‌is‌ ‌right‌ ‌now,‌ ‌so‌ ‌I‌ ‌am‌ ‌cherishing‌ ‌every‌ ‌crawling‌ ‌moment.‌ ‌ ‌

Emma’s‌ ‌lesson‌ ‌for‌ ‌today‌ ‌is‌ ‌to‌ ‌continue‌ ‌to‌ ‌plan‌ ‌for‌ ‌the‌ ‌future‌ ‌and‌ ‌take‌ ‌your‌ ‌action ‌steps,‌ ‌but‌ ‌live‌ ‌for‌ ‌today‌ ‌because‌ ‌you‌ ‌never‌ ‌know‌ ‌if‌ ‌it‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌your‌ ‌last.‌ ‌You‌...

What is There For Me to Do?


So many of us are falling into victim mode. We are complaining and focusing on what we are not able to do. We are only focusing on the terrible experiences in our life and not keeping our eye out for how we can serve. 

I get it. As a sign language interpreter, I have not worked since March 9th because of shelter in place. I also have not been able to present as a life coach. 

BUT I have been given the opportunity to watch my niece Emma. She is beautiful, and she is perfect. Because she lives so far away, I would not have the time to bond and spend time with her. But because of this tragic pandemic, I get to fill my days with this beautiful, baby girl.

I know we are having a hard time with COVID-19, and yes, everything is different, but we could look at our situation from another perspective. 

Instead of being in the victim mode, we could step back and ask, “What is there for me to do?” 

For you, it might be to make a phone call or wearing a mask. Only you know the answer. 

When we contribute, it takes us out of the victim mode and put us in a more peaceful state of mind.

So, what is there for you to do today?

Overcoming Fear


I want to talk to you about a tough subject…fear.

We often experience this in our lives through worry and anxiety.

The good news is fear is simply on the border of what we currently know. It doesn’t mean we can’t. It only means we haven’t taken that next step. 

Fear is feedback letting us know we are on a new green growing edge and are stepping out of our comfort zone. 

COURAGE is moving ahead in spite of our fear. So today I want you to wrap your arms around fear and say THANK YOU because it means you are growing into so much more.

You are getting out of your comfort zone and doing something new. Instead of going into fear, go into gratitude and say THANK YOU.

You are taking that courageous step to create a life you love. 

Question for the day: Where can I move ahead in spite of my fear?

You’ve got this!

Who Do I Trust?


Question of the day: How do we know who to trust?

You turn on the TV and one station says these people are right and you turn the channel and tell us another group is right. There are different ideas and variances, so who do you decide who to follow?

You have been given something amazing and that is called your INTUITION. You can tap into that to get the answers from within yourself. Don’t just blindly follow others. Don’t only look at Facebook. Instead do some research on the topic and then get quiet. 

Get still and really feel how your body is reacting and listen to what your mind is telling you because you have the answers. We don’t want to get the answers outside of ourselves. We want to go inward and dig deep to hear what our own mind is telling us. 

So today if you are confused with the media and don’t know who to trust, take some deep breathes, sit down and do a little meditation and ask yourself “WHAT FEELS RIGHT TO ME?” 

Keep listening to your intuition because you have the power within you to make the best choice.

Be Easy on Yourself


Good Morning! This week I am continuing to respond to questions people have asked me to talk about what they are dealing with during this COVID-19 pandemic.

Many individuals are being down on themselves because they feel like they are not doing enough. They feel like they are not staying up to the standards that they had been living pre-corona virus. 

I want to say that is cruel and unloving to yourself. We are in a different time. We are going through a different experience, so love yourself. Maybe it’s time to sit back and enjoy your time. 

I got a wonderful meme today that says…"You will get to know yourself during the hardest times, but you probably won’t recognize it until hindsight" - Stacy Martin

I love that because it made me think about when I went through one of my worst breakups. Even though I had worked hard MY ENTIRE LIFE (looking back I was probably a work-aholic) for a year, I just sat. 

I still got up and did what I needed to do to take care of my kids, but I wasn’t up until midnight every night and then working again in the morning at 5 am. I was so down on myself and then I had a revelation.

During this time because I am not working in my office so hard, I’m spending more time with my kids. Which I have always said is my number one priority, but I found that work was taking over.

Right now, maybe you are being down on yourself because you think you are not doing enough, but realize what you are doing. You are having self-discovery. You are discovering what you would truly love to be doing during this life. Deciding if you really want to be in this relationship.

So be easy on yourself today. In hindsight, it’s going to be okay. Enjoy today and take care of yourself.

This is Dr. Laura Cole with Inspirational Outcomes. I hope you have an amazing day!
