Hey Katie,

Great insight. The combination of being in the present moment and being disciplined is a winning combination. If we concentrate too much on one area, the other suffers. Practice makes perfect, so practice and enjoy the journey.

Hi Katie your last video touched on a very sensitive subject and reminds me of how hard it is for me to live in the moment when something horrific happened to me in my childhood.

If you would like to know more then email me personally as this is just to touchy for me to discuss here.

Hello Katie,

I’ve really been enjoying your blog, consider yourself tweeted and put on my facebook feed whenever you add something new! :)

I totally agree with you and always strive to live my life in the moment (get out of sync sometimes!). Not to do so I believe is a form of self sabotage. I used to take everything too seriously, especially work and although I achieved a lot I wasn’t happy. It actually took almost dying to realize that life has to be fun AND productive and the two get a long very well if you let it!

Take care and look forward to your next post.

Kind regards,

Emma :)


Scott Phares February 19, 2010 at 6:59 am

Katie – thanks for bringing this to the forefront and to everyone’s attention. It’s so easy to get caught up with what happened in the past or what you see/want to happen in the future and miss the NOW. When you stop to think about it, that’s all anyone really has … the NOW. A healthy cohesion of the joy of being in the present moment coupled with a consistent, disciplined work ethic is sure to be a recipe for success, both spiritually and financially. I think it will certainly take some practice and effort to “keep your feet in two different boats” at the same time, there will surely be some “falls into the water” at first. Great post, thanks again for sharing!

Hey Katie!

Bliss-apline… I LOVE IT!

It reminds me of my favorite quote:

“A happy life is just a string of happy
moment… but most people don’t allow the
happy moment, because they’re so busy trying
to get a happy life” – Abraham Hicks

The power truly is in the present moment,
and once once discovers that… life changes!

Thank you SO much for always kickin’ things
into high gear and pumpin’ out the VALUE.

I appreciate you:)

Hi Katie,
I LOVE this word – Bliss-apline.

It is so true, many people are so focused on their goals and getting to them that they do not take the time to enjoy the magical moments they are experiencing on the journey.

Happiness and fulfillment are not limited to the attainment of a goal, but are connected to the process that moves us toward the goal.

Thank you for sharing Bliss-apline with us today.

Hey Katie
I love that term Bliss-Aplinn (not sure if I spelled it right. I’ve been practicing living in the, “Now” it is stress-free!

I’m also learning more and more to “Give” with “No” agenda! Be a mentor with a “Servants Heart”, I think all this takes Bliss-Aplinn and knowing the, True-Pure self, living without the negative emotions of “Ego”!

(I love Dr. Wayne Dryer’s books)

Therese Miu February 19, 2010 at 9:26 am

Hi Katie,

Love this POST today 😉

My personal story is that I was always discipline since high school, getting good grades, etc..up until College and even with a career in social work. It wasn’t until I started TO READ some self-help books that I continually started to understand ‘Bliss-apline’–I have heard of the term. Yet in terms of really embracing the concept in comeplete totality–mind, body, heart, and soul. It was when I had my son. I really saw the world through his eyes of being blissful in every moment. Just simply watching him play. Being engaged in every moment of everyday with no worries. One quote that I even wrote as I observe his very essence & true “being” was Children spend most of their days in Imagination & Play while adults spend their days in worry.

As Benjamin Hoff once said
“But the adult is not the highest stage of development. The end of the cycle is that of the independent, clear-minded, all-seeing Child. That is the level known as wisdom. When the Tao te Ching and other wise books say things like, “Return to the beginning; become a child again” that’s what they are referring to. Why do the enlightened seem filled with light and happiness like children? Why do they sometimes even look and talk like children? Because they are. The wise are Children Who Know. Their minds have been emptied of the countless minute somethings of small learning and filled with the great wisdom of the Great Nothing, the Way of the Universe.”

Chuck Bluestein February 19, 2010 at 10:23 am

Actually you made a steak. My grandfatther would make mistakes on purpose to keep us (my brother and I) on our toes. Then when we told him, he would say that he made a steak (mistake) and we would correct him again. So are you trying to test us to see if we are really paying attention?

To get discipline you can become a marine. The black slaves got lots of discipline. If you are not a good parentt then you discipline your kids, like spare the rod, spoil the child. In prison you will get discipline. If you have a husband that is a control freak, you will get discipline. So you can tell your friend that she is using the wrong word. It is good to consult a dictionary sometimes. Here is Merriam-Webster online:

1 : punishment
2 obsolete : instruction
3 : a field of study (a discipline–like learning to fence)
4 : training that corrects, molds, or perfects the mental faculties or moral character
5 a : control gained by enforcing obedience or order b : orderly or prescribed conduct or pattern of behavior c : self-control
6 : a rule or system of rules governing conduct or activity

Many use discipline to train dogs. You mean self-discipline. Scientology has found that misunderstanding one word can ruin someone’s understanding of something. So discipline would be like parents punishing a child all the time. I just saw Oprah a few days ago. She had on it a man that was forced to have sex with his mother when he was a child. She used severe discipline on him to get him to do this. It is like confusing rape and sex. You do not want to say that people enjoy rape when you mean to say that they enjoy sex.

So I am not like that man on Oprah. I was brought up like a prince. Chuck is a nickname for Charles so that reminds me of Charles, Prince of Wales. The way you put down or insult a Jewish woman is by calling her a princess– JAP (Jewish American Princess). Now Paris Hilton is not Jewish but she was treated like a princess. So I am an expert on self-discipline whereas the guy on Oprah was an expert on discipline.

I have been doing yoga since age 12. I then started doing martial arts like tai chi and Kenpo karate at age 12. Note that my instructors worked for me. I paid them. So I practiced self-discipline. Psychology has studied being very happy thoroughly. They created positive psychology to study happiness. One guy in is called Dr. Happiness. They get big grants to study this.

A very famous American psychologist, Abraham Maslow (1908-1970), said “I can feel guilty about the past, apprehensive about the future, but only in the present can I act. The ability to be in the present moment is a major component of mental wellness.” In fact the purpose of psychology, Scientology and The teachings of Eckhart Tolle is to get people to be in the present moment. But the first 2 use therapy wiith the past. Scintology explains it this way.

You have attention units trapped in the past with traumas that are not healed. So you heal them in psychology and in Dianetics/Scientology. The those attentions are free and return to the present moment where they belong. So this is what prevents being in thepresent. Note that Dianetics came first and it was all about healing traumas. Then Scientology came later with ‘exercises’ to help someone to be in the present.


Katie Freiling February 19, 2010 at 10:57 am

Thank you Chuck! Yes, I definitely was referring to self-discipline :)


Michelle February 19, 2010 at 10:27 am

Hey katie,

I love your energy, so true..Bliss-apline Rocks!!
I am already practicing this. To attract what you most desire, thought and feeling are so important- it is key. In order to create your destiny you need to master the art of- think it-feel it and belive it,(and take action). and in turn you will send out the right frequency/vibration back into your life.

Happiness and wealth what a great combination-The perfect package.



Chuck Bluestein February 19, 2010 at 10:48 am

Continued: In positive psycholoy they study the peak experience of happiness. They found that yoga and martial arts are the best things to help develop this. Most of the pro sports people are good at this peak expereince that they may call being in the zone. They are paid millions of dollars to do something that they love more than life itself. It is not the sport that they love but the feeling they get while doing it that is more enjoyable than anything else. Some are totally in the moment at times while playing this sport. I also felt it playing volleyball and soccer.

There was a classic book written 3 decades ago called Be Here Now. The director of the Positive Psychology Network is Dr Selegman (Marty). He was elected president of the American Psycholgy Association by the widest margin ever. He is the 13th most cited psycholgist of all of them living and dead. He literally wrote the book (college textbook) on modern psychology.

I was brought up in a Jewish family and I was treated well like Paris Hilton but I was introduce to the joy of reading. People can feel that peak experience to some extent while reading. In psychology it is called the flow experience but it is different than being in the flow.

In his book, Authentic Happiness (© 2003), Dr. Seligman describes the flow experience like this: “When does time stop for you? When do you find yourself doing exactly what you want to be doing, and never wanting it to end? Is it painting, or making love, or playing volleyball, or talking before a group, or rock climbing, or listening sympathetically to someone else’s troubles?”

Kahlil Gibran, author of The Prophet, says “There is a cup of joy inside of you, but you cannot drink from it save [unless] you forget the past and renounce the future.” To renounce (give up or refuse) means to have nothing to do with it anymore. See Wikipedia for more about the flow experience. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flow_%28psychology%29

Being in the present helps you succeed with whatever you try to do.


Jan E Hale February 19, 2010 at 11:18 am

You are so right about this Katie, as I was watching the video I realized why I was so happy with learning and doing internet marketing, I was thoroughly enjoying the process. I have already determined my future so I don’t have much attention on that, so I can really enjoy the present. (which by the way has all my favorite people in it). It reminds me of sailing…I have been sailing with people who say “It takes so long to get where you are going” and I think to myself “Hey, the fun is in the sailing, who cares where you are going!” Thanks for bring this to our attention, you always brighten up the present.


John McGinn February 19, 2010 at 11:40 am


Love the concept(and the new word)! The mental balance game of being fully present and visionary. Without a promising future there is little power in the present.

Good post Katie! Thank you! As always you give nice content. This reminds us to grow as persons. I read few days ago: If you don’t realize about the beauty of life which passes in front of your eyes everyday better review which are your goals in life, what’s your motivation…

It’s my first post here, so sorry about my english, sometimes it’s difficult to find the right words for me :)


AffirmingSpirit February 19, 2010 at 1:13 pm

Katie, I’ve been practicing this for years and take it even several steps further:

The items on my To-Do list are not just *gotta DOs* ~ I follow only *inspired action*. That is, the night/week before, I meditate on what I want to accomplish and get a *knowing* of what feels good/right to do. Those items always have an energy that ensures I want to do them. Then, I put it in my calendar.

Similar to Gary V, “if it doesn’t feel good, I don’t do it”. Not feeling good is an indicator that either the action isn’t right for me OR I’m not *yet* ready to benefit from that action.

Throughout the day, I’m constantly checking in, taking action that feels good (because that feel-good energy is an indicator of the outcome from the action). Sometimes the idea comes in advance, sometimes it shows up *that day*. Either way, if it is inspired, then I know it is for me to do and beneficial.

I also *intend* before I take any inspired action ~get clear about how I want to *feel*. Many people are stuck in the mind and don’t realize that we never take any action except that we believe the outcome will lead to a feel-good experience. Create that feel-good energy up front, then every action you take will have a feel-good outcome.

I meditate, visualize and affirm my intentions daily (throughout the day). I look at every bump in the road and ask, “How is this a blessing?” <–THAT, alone, shifts so much that I am seeing reasons to feel blissful on a moment-to-moment basis. The more you look for blessings and bliss, the more you find it! 😀

There's more, but you get the picture. It is possible to not only be conscious, but build a very successful business! Clients sense when you are acting from desperation versus when you are acting from inspiration.

Many *blessings*,

Hey there Katie, thanks for another great post! I’ve been doing my best recently to “live in the now” and have found some successes with it… I often find myself getting sidetracked and sometimes even let down when thinking about the past or future, but in the moment there is no disappointment, just endless abundance! Thanks for helping to keep people mindful of that.

Ian Brown February 21, 2010 at 1:13 pm

Hmmm. Blissipline. What a concept!
You know it is so easy to get stuck in the past trying to keep hold of something or to focus on the future, that thing or things you are going after, and totally miss the present moment.
But it is the present moment where you happiness or bliss is. And it seems so many of us do not spend much time there.
You are so right. You need to amalgamate living the present moment and bliss with your self disciplined work routine to gain ultimate success in your life.
Blissipline is a mindset change and so will take perseverance and practice. But what a huge payoff. I am starting today.
Thanks Katie for sharing this!

Soomin Kim February 21, 2010 at 6:09 pm

I think one of the greatest killers of “blissipline” is wasting the present moment with time-killers such as “lazy Facebooking” , and getting caught searching random youtube videos (i just caught myself going from a business video to a shark attack! LOL). I don’t mean social networking for business, but many times people can waste so much time online without a plan, especially working the social networks… that leads to wasted time and very little productivity. Leaves one asking what happen to those 2-3 hours and longing to catch up in the future of productivity missed. Total blissipline killer! Hope that makes sense. Much love everyone, have a plan when you decide to sit in front of your computer as online marketers! -sK
