It’s a Living…

It’s a Living…

If you're not living the life of your dreams right now, it's not because you don't know how. There's a good chance you know exactly what it is that you love to do.  It's that thing that feels totally natural.  The thing you do that you feel like you could do all day, every day and never get tired of.  When you do it, that's when your true talent and unique gifts are being used to their fullest. So why aren't you doing it every day? There's nothing or no one that can stop you from doing what you love.  Provided of course that it's [...]

You Will if You Have the Will

You Will if You Have the Will

What does it take to be successful? It takes clarity of purpose, absolute focus, faith in yourself, a belief in your dream, heart felt determination, and unwavering will. And what kind of will is unwavering, you ask? I would say the kind of will that refuses to stop until the goal has been achieved.  The kind of will that won't entertain the words of doubters or anyone else who seeks to knock you off your course.  The kind of will that sees obstacles as opportunities. That's the kind of will that allows you to achieve anything [...]

Think It Through

Think It Through

There is a poem that I have kept with me since I was a kid.  It has been a source of inspiration for years and I really wanted to share it with you tonight. When I mean that I've kept it, I mean that it has either been up on my office wall, or tucked in a notebook in my room, and it seems that I've always been able to access it when I have needed to for the last 30-some-odd years.  Of course, this is not hard now that we have the internet, and I'm pretty sure that I found the latest and greatest version that I have online. In any [...]

It’s Now or Never

It’s Now or Never

If you're wondering when the time will be right for you to get started pursuing your dreams, goals, or desires, it's the same time that as it has always been.  In fact, it's the only time  that you can ever accomplish anything.  It's NOW. Learning to act in the present moment is the single most important lesson that any of us can learn if we hope to achieve anything worthy in this wonderful life. The thing is, it's sort of a foreign concept to most of us, because we've spent the majority of our lives either thinking about the past or [...]

Your Inner Child

Your Inner Child

I was playing with my kids today and just having an absolute blast. I love the opportunities I have as a father to spend time with the kids, especially on a lazy Sunday afternoon, when none of us are thinking about anything other than the moment.  Plus, the sound of my kid's laughter is one of my all-time favorite things in all of life. Often, when I'm done having a blow-out time with my son and daughter, I reflect on the beauty of being a kid.  The honesty, the fun, relying on imagination, and that endless supply of energy and [...]

Believe You Me

Believe You Me

Belief in yourself and belief in your own ability to be, do, or have whatever you desire, is ultimately what will get you to that point. Have you ever listened to the people who have accomplished amazing things in this life?  I mean really listened to them? Whether it's an athlete who wins an award or championship trophy, a movie star who accepts an Oscar, or the kid who takes 1st place in the 8th grade science fair,  they all sound a lot alike when describing their monumental achievements. They say things like, "No one thought I [...]

How Do You See It?

How Do You See It?

In my opinion, there's only one way to be in this life.  Optimistic. Without question, all of us have a choice as to how we decide to view the world around us.  We can think that for the most part things are good, or we can believe that in spite of all the hopes and dreams we may have, something lousy will usually happen to spoil the party. The quality of our life really comes down to the quality of our perspective. You've probably heard someone say, "I'm a realist", right after they have made some pretty negative statement and [...]

Believe it or Not

Believe it or Not

I heard someone say the other day that there are really only three possible answers to anyone's genuine prayer.  They said the answer is either "Yes", "Not Yet", or "There's Something Even Better". I really think that's the best way I had ever heard this concept described.  I think it's exactly right.  And its also incredibly empowering. No matter your perspective on prayer or asking, you have to love the idea that is being presented here.  It seems to echo the Biblical principle that you will receive whatever you ask for, if you [...]

Jailbreak

Jailbreak

"So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains, And we never even know we have the key" - lyrics from "Already Gone" by The Eagles One of the most liberating things you can ever do for yourself is acknowledge that you, and you alone, are ultimately responsible for your life. It can be like the wake up call that starts the most incredible day of your life. And the day that starts the journey toward everything you have ever dreamed of... This is not to say that there haven't been many influences on you, or that [...]

Counter Punch

Counter Punch

You know, I got to thinking after yesterday's post... Another thing that a good punch in the face or a blast of adversity will do to you is WAKE YOU UP! Oh, if you didn't read the last post, you probably didn't get the whole punch in the face thing.  Sorry about that.  If you would like to read it, it's called New Plan and in it, I referenced mixed martial artist Mirko Cro Cop's quote, "Everybody's got a plan, until they get hit". I love the quote, not just because it's great smack talk, but because it applies to our lives so [...]

Believe In You

Believe In You

I found a short but great inspirational poem about believing in yourself that I thought I'd share.  You may have read it before, but even if you have, take a look at it again and see if you can pick up anything that you may have missed. If you haven't read it, soak it up and see how it speaks to you.  It was written by Lili Dauphin and she was obviously inspired when she wrote it. Believing in yourself is a requirement if you're going to experience growth and achievement in your life in any truly meaningful way. I was having a great [...]
