Blog from above the Palm trees…Still looking for more contributors for my upcoming Adoption book, if you are interested please just send me an email to Annie@AnnieMeehan.com with the word Adoption in the subject line……On to the Blog Nature vs. Nurture
I’ve always been so fascinated by the nature versus nurture conversation. As a birth mother with adoption as part of my story, I’m typically very curious to see how things play out.
When adoptees reunite, they discover so many things they have in common with the other person even though they’ve never been a part of each other’s lives. Then, on the other hand, many kids who grow up in the same home with the same parents end up being so much different.
As you know, I speak a lot about choices which has always led me to wonder is it more about personality, family, or choice? When it comes down to it, should we place the blame of our successes and failures on another person, or ourselves?
As I meet more people I’m starting to notice, no matter how they were raised, that a majority place credit, or blame, on their mother rather than anyone else or themselves for their successes and failures in life.
The most heartwarming to me is when I meet someone with a powerful, maybe even painful story who now has an abundance of hope and healing in their life. It can be astonishing to meet someone who has taken total responsibility for getting themselves to where they are now.
No one else made it happen for them. They decided to focus on what they had versus what they were lacking and chose to remake an incredible life for themselves. The more stories I encounter the more I ask myself, “Were they able to accomplish that because of nature or nurture?”
This week, I encourage you to reflect on where you stand in the age old question of nature versus nurture. Is it up to us to create our stories, see our successes through, and overcome our struggles or should we rely on others to rescue us and help make it happen?
What does living your exceptional life look like to you? Is your life path a result of nature or nurture? Do you give credit to or place blame on your mother or yourself as you experience successes and failures in life?
Do you believe nature is best or nurture? Why? #adoption #LifeAbovethePalmtrees #mentalwellnessexpert #naturevsnurture #celebratinglife

It is often said that Leaders are Reader and I don’t disagree, I really believe Leaders are learners. I have a learning difference, I am not an excellent speller (People playing scrabble for FUN pains me) I can read but I am slow and it is challenging at time. Though I know I am a Leader, an Influencer and a Life long learner. I learn most often from Video, Trying new things hands on, Going to conferences and from the people around me. There are many ways to learn and I am not sure one is better than the other. It is just more about growing your mindset daily. How do you learn best? Leaders are learnings and they learn in many ways from listening, to reading, to doing. I try to learn from many difference sources in many different ways, never assume we all can or should learn the same things in the same way. Be open to growing your mind and your friend circle. #mentalwellnessexpert #leadersarelearners #hopehealthhappiness #keynotespeaker #inspirationalpresentations
Stop sitting on the fence, believe in yourself, and do whatever you need to do to get things done! As much as I love dreamers and their dreams, myself included, I’m starting to think I love action even more. I often meet people who have big dreams then get sucked into and stuck in the small decisions. What I’ve learned over time is I need to write my dreams down, set action steps, and hold myself accountable by sharing with someone else otherwise my dreams rarely become the reality I desire. To me, a dream without a plan is just a vision. Think back on some of the dreams you had last year. What did you want for your relationships, health, finances, or career? What did you do to turn your dreams into reality? Many times when we get stuck in the small decisions, we get slowed down or even halt the progress we’ve made entirely which is where your action steps and accountability shine. Now I want you to think forward into this year and ask yourself, “Is this the year I’m ready to turn my dreams into reality?” This week, I encourage you to focus on a single dream and write down your first five action steps, then share them with me. It can be hard to rely on a friend as your accountability partner when everyone is so busy with their own lives which is why it’s helpful to work with me as your coach! I will walk alongside you offering encouragement, support, and accountability to keep your action steps on track and remind you why you chose this dream. If you’re ready to turn your dreams into reality, I would love the opportunity to visit with you and see how coaching will help you create the life you’re dreaming of! What does living your exceptional life look like to you? What dream are you committed to turning into reality this year? Let Annie know what you think! What small decision are you stuck in? What are your action steps to make forward progress? Who will you ask to keep you accountable? Why? Are you dreaming of writing a book this year? I plan to release 2 and maybe 4 new books this year…Make your dreams a reality!!!
