The Good Stuff

The Good Stuff

I had a great conversation earlier in the week with some people about living a life filled with thankfulness. We talked about how wonderful and amazing life really is when you become conscious of the blessings surrounding you.  We also agreed that the more thankful you are for the things you currently have, the more likely you are to start stock piling more stuff that will bring you that same feeling of thankfulness. It's the law of attraction at its finest.  Actually, it's the simple yet miraculous principle of reaping what you [...]

Think About Yourself, Will You?

Think About Yourself, Will You?

You've heard the expression, "you always hurt the ones you love", right?   In fact, you've probably experienced it to some degree.  It's okay to admit...we've all been there. One of the reasons that we sometimes end up hurting the people we care most about, at least in my opinion, is because they're the ones we're the most honest with.  So, when we're around them, we have no problem blurting out whatever happens to be on our minds, and we end up throwing some real zingers out there...in spite of our good intentions. Usually, the [...]

Fear, Itself

Fear, Itself

Fear sucks. It paralyzes.  Physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. It stops great things from happening. It causes otherwise successful people to quit whatever they are pursuing or to not even muster the strength or courage to get started. It's a monster of the ugliest and most dangerous type. Edmund Burke once said, "the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing". I would say the same thing about fear.  In order for fear to grow legs and become real, we have to check out and do [...]

Knowing You

Knowing You

One of the key elements to the successful process in any area of your life is a solid belief in yourself.  You have to believe that you are capable and worthy of whatever it is you desire.  If you do, then your potential to achieve is only limited by the roadblocks you create for yourself. In other words, like W. Clement Stone famously said, "Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve". And in order to believe in yourself at the level necessary to start moving those proverbial mountains, you really have to get to [...]

You Are Here

You Are Here

What if you're living your perfect life right now? It may not be the greatest version yet...but what if it is perfect, nonetheless? I really believe that we're always living our perfect life, in a very real sense.  We're just living it in different stages, and have our own unique opportunities for growth.  And I think all of us have the potential to accomplish amazing and miraculous things.  We can be whatever we want to be and have whatever we want to have, as long as we believe this, and take the cues from around us to pursue our [...]

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 [...]

What If You Do?

What If You Do?

What if the secret to being happy was simply making the decision to be happy? What if the secret to living an abundant life was simply looking around and being grateful for everything that you already have in your life? What if the secret to success was believing that you were already successful and then just getting busy acting like it? What if the secret to achieving anything you wanted was to simply decide to be focused and persistent? If all of these were true, how would you feel about yourself, the world around you, your [...]

The Meaning of Life?

The Meaning of Life?

At one time or another, I'm sure you've asked yourself something like, "what in the heck is this life all about?"  Or maybe more specifically, "what am I here for?"  I know that there have been times in my life where I have definitely wondered such things. Well, I think I have the answer for you and me and anyone else who has ever wondered such things. For starters, think about the one thing that you can do better than anyone else on the planet.  It should be obvious...but I know it's not.  Don't over-think this, just use your common [...]

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 [...]

Circumstantial Evidence

Circumstantial Evidence

If you can change your perspective, you can change your circumstance.  No matter what it is. Bold thing to say, right?  And I suppose that I should follow that type of statement up with something like, "of course it's easier said than done".  The thing is, I don't even know if I believe the whole easier said thing.  As far as I can tell, something is only easier said than done if you don't ever do it.  Know what I mean? The truth is that we've all become conditioned to react to circumstances in a certain way.  We hear specific [...]

If You Must, Then You Will!

If You Must, Then You Will!

Well, here we are!  The end of another year.  A chance for all of us to reflect on the last 12 months and all of our achievements, and a chance to start over with a clean slate, a fresh list of resolutions and a renewed attitude.  Same as it ever was...same as it ever was... Chances are, you didn't do a whole lot of what you should have done in 2010.  However, I'll bet that you did everything you absolutely had to do.  What do I mean by that?  Let me explain it. One of my mentors is Tony Robbins.  In fact, he's one of the most [...]
