Google+ How To In Life - with Dr Edith Johnston Google+


Welcome to “How To” Life Consultants from Edith Johnston on Vimeo.

Is This ME?

Do you struggle with keeping quiet and being exuberant with ideas to make things better?  Do you see patterns, connections or solutions that seem obvious and yet others wonder where you are coming from?  Are you expected or expect yourself to settle on one career and yet so many things interest you?  Are you excited easily and also hurt easily?  Do you have lots of energy?  Do you often feel out-of-sync with others? Do you have a vivid imagination and are driven by your creativity?  Do you often question authority?  Do you need periods of contemplation?

These characteristics have been identified as a person with extra intelligence (Kuplers & Van Kempen) or gifted (Jacobsen or Streznewski or Silverman).  The key is you have high ability and are multitalented.  We need to understand ourselves to overcome the frustrations we experience with limiting our expression of our potential.  We are driven to be who we are, but have established strategies to fit in and not be noticed.  Yet, the spark remains within that wants to be fanned so that we can be a contribution.  Let’s do that today!

Understanding What Makes Me Different – Thinking It Through

White Hat B

We are different.  We think differently.  We feel differently.  We sense differently.  And we put it all together differently.  However, that also makes everyone else different from us. We need to understand how we are different and that our biology is part of that difference.  We need to understand what contributes to the way we […]

Transitioning to Sleep

Multi-talents most often experience an intense high energy day, every day.  Time for relaxation and rejuvenation are important.  Which means a good night’s sleep comes in handy.  However, going from a rocket ship pace to a moment of stillness can be difficult and requires applying the brakes.  The brakes are creating a transition that slows […]
