This Positive Shit

This Positive Shit

I can still remember the conversation. My wife and I were talking about some of the good things that were happening in our lives, which hadn't been the case for quite a while. We had, for what seemed like a very long time, been powering through some pretty difficult and trying times, and there now seemed to be a little bit of positivity seeping into our otherwise rocky set of life events. To the best of our knowledge, the only thing we had consciously done differently during this particular series of hardships was change our way of [...]

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 [...]

You’re Still the One

You’re Still the One

Would you really like to stand out from the crowd?  As a business owner, as a professional, or even as a person? Then here's a solid suggestion that will allow you to separate yourself from the status quo or your competition, and put you on a path to achieving amazing results in your life.  Are you ready for it?  Here it is: Be yourself. As simple as that sounds, the truth is, being yourself is the one way you can truly stand out from the crowd.  You're a unique individual, and the best way to start to express that [...]

Beyond the Plateau

Beyond the Plateau

"It's what you learn after you know it all that counts" - John Wooden Ask most personal trainers in the gym about the value of cardio and they'll tell you it's essential to good health.  Most will say that at least 30 minutes of exercise a day is key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and prolonging your life.  Ask them what makes the cardio most effective and they'll probably say something like, "that 15 minutes longer" than the 30 minutes a day you're doing is where you really make a difference for yourself. The push up after the [...]

Eviction Notice

Eviction Notice

It's that time of the year, people...out with the old and in with the new! So let's get 2013 started the right way. If you're harboring any bitterness or anger or even hatred inside yourself because of something some numb skull did to you at the office, or maybe because of some silly comment your sister made about you in public...it's time to cut it loose.  The old stuff has simply got to go. It's easy to take on the responsibility of lugging around negative thoughts and bad feelings.  In fact, it almost feels like your duty when [...]

Due To Circumstances Beyond Your Control

Due To Circumstances Beyond Your Control

Bill Cosby is credited with saying, "I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody". I think those are wise words, and should also serve as a bit of a warning for all of us. As strong as that desire may be within you to make everyone happy, or every situation harmonious, if you're measuring your ultimate success by the degree to which you accomplish this, you're in for a monumental letdown. No matter how awesome, cool, and wonderful you are, you can't make everyone happy.  And regardless of [...]

First Things First

First Things First

Okay, I want to jump right into this. I talked about posting daily questions or challenges or thoughts that we could all apply to our own lives in the hope that those things would lead us to a place where we are all living with passion and purpose, and following our hearts to the truest extent of those words.  Of course this was really inspired by listening to all of the tributes to Steve Jobs in light of his passing from this world the other day. If you didn't read the post I'm referring to, you can check it out here, so you'll know [...]

No Regrets

No Regrets

"Running through the changes, going through the stages, Coming round the corners in my life, Leaving doubt to fate, staying out too late, Waiting for the moon to say goodnight. And I could cry for the time I've wasted, But that's a waste of time and tears, And I know just what I'd change if I went back in time somehow, But there's nothing I can do about it now" -lyrics from "Nothing I Can Do About It Now" by Beth Nielsen-Chapman Willie Nelson sings that song and it's one of my all time favorites.  I [...]

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 [...]

The One Thing That Changes Everything

The One Thing That Changes Everything

Life is what you make it. You can choose to be miserable or you can choose to be content. Regardless of what you have or don't have. You can choose to be happy or you can choose to be upset. Regardless of the circumstances that you think are defining you. You can choose to sit on your butt and do nothing or you can choose to get out there and LIVE your life with passion and purpose. Your choice. No matter what. And that is the plain, no-BS, absolute, bottom line, truth of all truths. You get to choose how you take the [...]

It’s Time to Get Your Positive ON!

It’s Time to Get Your Positive ON!

Everybody needs a little positive mojo in their life.  Even the most optimistic among us can use encouragement each day.  Let's face it, the world can be a pretty negative place sometimes. You may be one of those optimistic people who make the conscious decision each day to be positive.  If you are, I think that's awesome, and I say congrats to you!  You might also stay focused on your goals most of the time.  If so, again, I say to you, I love it! However, in the same breath, I would also tell you that you still need some of that [...]
