Yard Work

Yard Work

"So if you think your life is complete confusion because your neighbors got it made, just remember that it's a grand illusion, and deep inside we're all the same" - lyrics from "The Grand Illusion" by Dennis DeYoung of Styx It sure is easy to look around and think to ourselves that life would be a whole lot beter for us if only we had... (fill in the blank) It's a challenge for sure in this Infomation Age, which was ushered in on the heels of the Sit-In-Front-of-the-TV-for-Eight-Hours-a-Day Age. I mean, if you live in America, you're [...]

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 [...]

Hey, Are You Alive?

Hey, Are You Alive?

"The real question is not whether life exists after death. The real question is whether you are alive before death"  Where are you living? No, I don't mean your address...I mean where are you really living your life?  In the past, in the present, or in the future? Truthfully, we tend to live in all three of those places, at least some of the time. For example, it's really easy to get caught up in memories, great ones or bad ones, and it's also easy to get stuck there.  Sort of like a brain freeze, just picturing the events that [...]

The Best Kind of Bold

The Best Kind of Bold

Sometimes it seems like arrogant people are more bold, doesn't it? And it sure feels like those conceited, ruthless, greedy people are a lot more powerful than the rest of us, right?  (I'm assuming of course you're not one of the conceited, ruthless or greedy people I'm referencing). Sure, they can be louder in social settings, and they are truly adept at putting other people down, often in front of their peers.  But the truth is that the loud, obnoxious, cocky, and entitled among us are really cowards. Weaklings cleverly disguised as [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Let’s Die, Living

Let’s Die, Living

I was sitting around the other day thinking about death. Now, before you start imagining that I've lost whatever part of my mind is left, and that I may be heading for a real dark place in this post, let me explain. I found myself with an opportunity to lose myself in some quality quiet time earlier this week, and so I decided to dive in.  Somehow, I was drawn to start thinking about life.  The whole cycle;  the experiences we all have, the things we all learn (or don't), the places we go, and eventually, I started thinking about our [...]

Your True Best Friend, Within

Your True Best Friend, Within

How much quality time do you spend with yourself each day? Think about it before you answer. I mean, look, you're always there for you.  I just can't help but wonder if you're really take advantage of that. Everywhere you go, you're right there with yourself...everything you think about, you're thinking about, it too.  You follow you around like a shadow, waiting to help, whenever you give you the chance. Do you trust yourself?  Would you go to yourself for advice?  Do you love yourself?  Do you respect yourself? Your life [...]

The Law of Distraction

The Law of Distraction

Is the law of attraction real?  Absolutely. Do I believe in it?  I sure do. Has it worked its "magic" in my life?  Yup. Am I consumed by it?  Not a chance. You may be wondering why I would say that.  Allow me to explain myself... I honestly believe that the majority of the people who can't seem to get in the groove with the law of attraction make a huge mistake when they become totally consumed by the law itself.  Or the idea of the law.  They completely obsess over it.  LOA becomes all-encompassing, and nothing else [...]

You’re In There Somewhere

You’re In There Somewhere

As I sit here typing on my computer, I realize that I'm becoming one of them. I'm watching TV, listening to an iPod, I have Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus open in separate windows on my desk top, I'm monitoring my laptop, and I'm texting on my phone.  Hang on...okay...just had to finish that text. Seriously, have I lost my freakin' mind? Before you answer that question, check out your own surroundings and make sure you haven't become one of them, too.  How about it?  How many masters are you currently serving? They've been [...]

A Subtle Shift in Power

A Subtle Shift in Power

Have you ever noticed how resilient you become when you absolutely have to do something? Think about it. When you don't have any other choice but to get it done...you become one seriously persistent chick or dude!  And, as a result of this, it gets done. Whatever it is that you decide has to be done will ultimately get done.  And the reason is because you just don't stop until you've achieved your goal.  It could be fixing the leak in your water main, finding that special pair of earrings, climbing to the top of a mountain, getting [...]
