You Are Here…Today

You Are Here…Today

I found myself quiet this morning...which isn't always an easy thing to pull off on a Thursday...and in that quiet and still place, I became lost in a thought.  The thought itself was simple enough; life is a gift.  However, the more I thought about it, the more I became inspired to reflect on an extraordinary benfit to this great gift from God.  And that is, the unique opportunity each of us has, every single day, and for as long as we draw breath, to invent and reinvent.  And really what I mean is, the chance to reinvent [...]

It’s Time to Travel Light

It’s Time to Travel Light

How's your stress level? If you're like the rest of us, you could probably afford to let go of some of the stress in your life. I've got a tip that I think will make all the difference in the world for you, but it's going to require you to change the way you think a little bit.  I know, changing anything doesn't really sound like much fun at first, but I assure you the payoff will be beyond fantastic.  Besides, if you keep doing what you're doing...you'll keep getting what you got. So are you ready to try to shake things up a bit [...]

Sharp Axes

Sharp Axes

"If I had eight hours to chop down a tree, I'd spend six hours sharpening my ax" - Abraham Lincoln There's an analogy I love to use when I'm talking to people about continuously working on their craft, and why it's so important that they never stop.  And whether you're a salesperson, an actor, a business owner, a stay at home mom, or anything else, I hope you can learn from this one. Think about the World Series.  The match up between the two best baseball teams in all of the major leagues.  These are some of the absolute best [...]

A Little Magic

A Little Magic

Are you ready for a challenge?  It's not a ridiculously hard one, and it's not one that will take you more than 48 hours...but it's one that has a really cool payoff.  Are you interested? Okay...try this little experiment for two days. Whoever you interact with; at home, at work, at the grocery store, in church, at school, on the street corner, or wherever...interact with kindness and love in your heart.  Look for the goodness in every single person that you speak with.  Greet everyone with a smile, and make sure you say something [...]

Control Freak

Control Freak

You can react to any situation any way that you choose. You can cry at a wedding or laugh at a funeral.  It's  really up to you. Once you realize this and start to put it into practice, it will empower you beyond belief.  In fact, it may be the single most valuable life lesson that exists, if it were possible to rank such things. Not so you can start making scenes at memorial services, but so that you can demonstrate to yourself that outside circumstances and other people have no inherent right to dictate your mood, attitude, or to [...]

Two Things You Can Do

Two Things You Can Do

Life is a gift. And as far as I can tell, we should be savoring as much of it as possible while we're here.  So, how are you doing? If you answered with anything other than totally awesome, here are two quick suggestions that will help you start getting the most out of each and every day. 1. Do something you're passionate about every single day. Whatever it is, take the time to do it.  It could be spending time with your family or friends, cooking a fabulous meal, reading a book, running around the block, listening to a piece of [...]

Get Really Good at Failing

Get Really Good at Failing

A lot of people think that failure is the opposite of success. It's not. Failure is actually a big part of success. In fact, without failure, it's likely that there will be no success. That might not make much sense if you're thinking of failure in terms of it being permanent. So I would challenge you to think of failure a little differently than you may have to this point. Failure is temporary, in the truest sense. It really only becomes permanent when you accept it as permanent and quit whatever it is you were doing. Failure should [...]

Let’s Get Something Clear

Let’s Get Something Clear

"And so castles made of sand fall in the sea...eventually" - Jimi Hendrix If you're going to build anything substantial, you need a solid foundation.  If you're going to achieve anything extraordinary, you need that foundation in the form of a clear vision. Having clarity of purpose is the first step to succeeding at anything in life.  It is the bedrock of any remarkable thing you will achieve.  Whether it's a project at the office or a life long dream...you have to be totally clear with your vision.  Clear as to where you are, and [...]

Three Steps to Achievment

Three Steps to Achievment

Accomplishing your goals really comes down to having a definitive plan and being able to execute it. In fact, one of the reasons that so many folks get sidetracked on their way to achieving their goals is that they don't have a plan at all.  Because a plan is so important, I wanted to share something meaningful with you that would have the greatest positive impact. So here are three steps that I have found to be incredibly effective in achieving anything you want in life: 1. Decide what it is you are trying to achieve Seems like a [...]

The Power of Presence

The Power of Presence

If you're a parent, you have no doubt experienced a moment or two when you wonder if you're doing the best job you possibly can.  I actually believe that's a good thing, because, the way I see it, if you're actually concerned about the job you're doing, that means you care.  And if you care, that's a great place to start. I think the best parents are just like the best people in any other endeavor in life.  Always searching for new and better ways to do things, reading up on tips, asking questions, setting goals.  A serious and [...]

Right Here, Right Now

Right Here, Right Now

One of the most miraculous and wonderful things about this life, is that you can be or do anything you wish to be or do. Now, what really gives that idea power and makes it truly liberating for you, is that you can get started on whatever it is you wish to accomplish right now.  Right where you are, regardless of your circumstances. That's the beauty of it all! No matter where you are, you can begin to change your situation and begin to move in the direction of whatever it is you wish to achieve.  It may not happen overnight, in [...]
