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 [...]

Some Words for Life

Some Words for Life

Every so often I like to share an inspirational or motivational poem that I come across, hoping that you will find it to be both timely and purposeful.  I know for me, a great quote or a moving poem really motivates me to reflect on my life and look inside myself for the opportunity to learn and grow. Sometimes the words can be somewhat trivial, but even so, there is often a hidden gem in the midst of them which can, if applied, become the catalyst for amazing transformation.  It sounds a little kooky, I know, but words [...]

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 [...]

Quality Control

Quality Control

The quality of your thoughts will determine the quality of your life. Sounds reasonable enough, right? So what are your predominant thoughts?  And how's the quality? I guess the best way any of us can answer that question is by looking around and assessing the quality of our lives.  The place we find ourselves in physically, emotionally, spiritually, and financially.  Where do you live? Is it where you want to live?  How much jack do you have sitting in the ol' bank account?  Is it as much as you want?  How's your health?  [...]

Me, Myself, and the Birds

Me, Myself, and the Birds

I'm sitting on my back deck as I write this, and I'm watching the various songbirds and squirrels that visit my yard.  I have to tell you, I find it extremely peaceful and very cool to just enjoy the quiet nature of the whole scenario. One of my favorite things to do is to watch the birds.  I have hummingbird feeders, songbird feeders, places for the finches to get their thistle, etc.  And I've been doing this for a long time. Yes, it's true, while I consider myself to be a man's man...I was watching UFC 131 last night and enjoying [...]

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 [...]

You’re a 10…Right Now

You’re a 10…Right Now

Is it possible that you're living your perfect life right now? I know that might seem absurd to you if you happen to be struggling in any way.  In fact you might think I'm a little nuts for even asking that question.  But I want you to stay with me on this one and hear me out... The reason that I've been thinking about this lately, is that I'm a huge believer in the fact that you can have anything you want in this life.  You can be who you want to be, and you can go where you want to go.  The universe is unlimited in potential and [...]

Your Every Day To-Do List

Your Every Day To-Do List

How would you like to hear about a four step process to achieving anything you want in your life?  Sounds pretty good, right? Well, I will warn you; it sounds so ridiculously simple, that your first inclination will be to dismiss it as trivial and silly. You may also think that it sounds like the stuff in fairy tales.. I might remind you though, in fairy tales, they all live happily ever after... Seriously, you will read this and do one of three things; you will either A. Dismiss it as dumb and move on, B. Think it sounds like [...]

Let Go and Live!

Let Go and Live!

One of the most tiring, emotionally draining, and energy-sapping practices that any of us can ever take part in is that of holding on to resentment.  Not only does it put you in a lousy state of existence, cause you great stress, and make those around you feel uncomfortable...but it literally drains you of the strength you need to pursue your real passion and make your own life as productive as possible. I read a great quote the other day.  It was about how holding onto hatred or bitterness actually ends up hurting the person doing the [...]

Why Phil Jackson is the Best

Why Phil Jackson is the Best

When the NBA season came to an unceremonious end for the Los Angeles Lakers last weekend, all of the attention turned to their Hall of Fame head coach, Phil Jackson.  Jackson has announced that he is likely retiring from coaching basketball, at least for now, and so the talk of his career achievements were in all of the sports headlines. Most NBA fans believe that Phil Jackson is one of the greatest coaches of all time.  His 11 NBA World Championships are the most all-time by any coach, and in age of free agency where there seems to be [...]
