    Have you ever felt like you're unhappy and it's not exactly your fault? More often than not, somebody said something you don't agree with or some little thing happen.

    This year marks the 20 year anniversary of meeting my personal mentor, Jim Rohn. There is no question I would not be the man (or achiever) I am today if not for his mentorship. Jim cemented my philosophical foundation and nourished my mind with ideas and ambitions never before imagined. Jim chiseled my character seminar by seminar, tape by tape, book by book, then CD by CD, hour by hour. Jim emboldened my belief, in me and in my most daring dreams. When I fell and was bloodied, Jim was there with encouraging words to help me get back up. When I didn’t think I could go on, Jim convinced…

    When I was in college trying to figure out what to do with my life, I did many things to help me find direction and guidance. I was in search of my meaning and purpose. “What am I here to do?” “What does the universe want me to do? What’s my life mission?” While I was asking myself these profound questions, I regret that I went searching for the answer in the wrong places: parents, college counselors, and society. See, when I was asking this question to my Indian parents, the answer was direct and to the point. Regardless of what I wanted or even imagined I wanted, my parents…

    As a society, we always seem to be searching for a hero. We need someone to look up to. We seek others to inspire, guide and lead us. In my interview with Simon Sinek, he says, “As social animals, we need and seek leadership. We cannot live without leaders. We are naturally hierarchical. We’re always looking to someone like a child looks to a parent for protection. We look for them for guidance and direction, to point a way, to give us something to belong to.” From our seats as spectators, we admire our leaders’ and heroes’ great confidence, strength and…

When you are working on a degree or a diploma, there are core courses and electives that you have to take, but when your study is more self-directed, the possibilities are endless, which makes the process for deciding what courses to take more difficult. I decided to go the informal route because I already have two business degrees, and I didn’t think that I needed to take on the expense of taking formal courses when there are so…

    Are you afraid of some condition in your life? Here’s a life-transforming secret: that seemingly scary condition, whatever it may be, is not the problem. It is your reaction that is fearful. This is why if you will become conscious of your condition instead of afraid of it, you will change forever your relationship with fear. It is only within this special kind of inner-relationship that there is real safety, because now you are interacting with fear in an entirely new way. You are no longer letting it dictate to you how to act or what to do. Instead, you are aware of the fear. You are…

It’s like being in the hustle and bustle of a busy marketplace. In the marketplace, people talk aloud, shout and try to attract people to their stalls. It is the same inside the mind. There are many thoughts coming and going, constantly trying to attract your attention and make you follow them. Thoughts occupy your mind all the time, hardly giving you any free moment.

    Everyone has things to do, tasks to complete, and chores to carry out. Sometimes, these are not tasks or chores you really want to do, but you have to do them. At other times, they might be things you want to do and enjoy doing. The problem is that most of these tasks and chores, often, take too much time. They take too much time because you are not focused and your mind is often ‘hijacked’ by other things. This has much to do with your attention span. Does your attention easily wander away? How long is your attention span? Can you measure it in seconds or minutes? Most often, the…

Its leaves shriveled, and it seemed as if it was going to wither. I gave the plant, some water. In just a little while, the plant changed completely. The water suffused it with life and energy, and it regained its fresh look. It stood straight once again, with all the leaves looking fresh. Think about what happened. The water entered the roots of the plant, and moved fast through its branches and leaves, giving it a…

  • Are You Blurring the Line between Work and Play?

    Bev Webb
    28 Jul 2014 | 4:00 am
    This one is for the self-employed multipotentialites. Have you found that the line between your personal and business passions is so blurred that it’s pretty much non-existent most of the time? With a job you get to “go to work” and then “come home” from work and leave that part of yourself behind at the end of the day. When you work for yourself, the dividing line between the two can be much more fuzzy. As a personal experiment, I set out to find out whether it’s okay to blur the boundaries, or whether we need some degree of separation between work and play.
  • Socializing as an Introvert

    21 Jul 2014 | 4:00 am
    My mom likes to tell this story about me as a child. I don’t much remember the day in question, but I have no doubt that it happened, as it is a perfect representation of an aspect of my character that I know well. I was five years old. My mother and I were at my best friend, Alison’s house for her birthday party. There were half-a-dozen little kids there. The moms were drinking coffee in the kitchen. Alison, my best friend since the age of 3-months, was and still is, extremely extroverted. According to legend, on this particular day she was running up and down the hallway with a…
  • 9 Ways to Explain Your Multipotentiality to Non-Mulitpotentialites

    Jo Moore
    14 Jul 2014 | 4:00 am
    Most people struggle at certain points in their lives, with being asked what they want to do or what they want to be. As teenagers, we get used to fending off questions from well-meaning friends and family about the career we want to pursue. But for multipotentialites, the struggle doesn’t stop once we get our first jobs. Time and time again, strangers, friends, and colleagues tilt their heads to one side, look at us, confused, and ask us once again to explain what exactly it is that we do. I’m travelling around Europe at the moment, seeing new places and visiting old friends.

    At the time of writing this, World Domination Summit (WDS) is coming up. WDS is a popular conference for bloggers and entrepreneurs that’s held in Portland, OR each year. This year I’ll be hanging around on the fringes as an un-conferencer. I went to at least ten unofficial meet-ups last year and, even though I didn’t attend the actual conference itself, I got a lot out of meeting people. I got so much out of it that I decided to slow travel my way around the world. I haven’t looked back since I made that decision. I currently balance my time between SE Asia and the…
  • How To Be A Mindful Multipotentialite

    7 Jul 2014 | 4:00 am
    Editor’s Note: this is a guest post by Natalie K. Stickel As a multipotentialite, I often get distracted. The demands of my many projects sometimes make it difficult to remain in the present moment; there are always so many people to contact, places to go, tasks to check off. Last night before going to bed, as I squeezed toothpaste onto my brush, I couldn’t stop thinking about tomorrow. Sure enough, as I started brushing, I found myself wandering away from the bathroom to go add to my to-do list, jot down an idea, and text a friend. But then I stopped. I’d been reading Being Peace…

But what few realize is that the way we tend to “fight” bad habits actually makes them unstoppable.

  • How to Fight Procrastination By Overcoming the Fear of Failure

    Guest Author
    14 Jul 2014 | 3:45 am
    I’m happy to present an excellent guest post written by James Frankton, who writes at Why Am I Lazy. James tells us about the connection between the fear of failure and procrastination. The solution he recommends is simple, yet effective (just the way I like it). Thank you James! Do you often find yourself procrastinating because you are worried that you won’t succeed? Have you ever put off doing something because you were concerned about what others will think if you failed? If so, then it’s likely that you have a procrastination problem that is caused by the fear of failure.

    “Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.” John F. Kennedy Direction is everything in life. If you know where you’re going, you can dodge obstacles, plow through resistance, and do whatever it takes to get there. Not knowing what to do is bad to the same degree that knowing is good. Before we talk about knowing what to do, let’s explore the consequences of not knowing what to do. One thing it seems to do in my experience is decrease motivation. I’m least motivated when I don’t have a specific target. There is a segment of…

Shoot high, don’t bowl. - John Abraham Quotes like the one above tend to hit us as inspiring and sound like good advice. But reader beware! There are two possible scenarios for John Abraham above: he gets 20+ sacks or he gets less than 20 sacks.

The shoulder is still tender when I move my arm overhead but I can now do shorter stride front crawl and even butterfly strokes using an even shorter arm stride. The cardiovascular side of my fitness is back to where it should be so despite the injury, I also able to do the full 70 pool lengths rather than stay at the 50 length pool workout that I normally start the season with.

Even though I have been playing it with my acoustic guitar, ie., unplugged, I will opt to play it with…

    Scuba Certification Course So two of my lady friends recently decided to take a scuba diving certification course, the same basic one I took many years ago.  However, both of these ladies are not very technical (as many are not too) and both apparently failed their written exam. Yes, the scuba diving certification course (as opposed to just the short resort course many tourists try out during vacations), does have a written exam that one must pass as part of the overall certification process.  There is a lot of technical concepts and terms based on physics involved in scuba diving.

    Magnetizing is having the things you want in life:  material possessions, people or experiences, line up and come right to you without struggle. It is deliberately shifting your conscious mind to focus on the feeling of what you want to bring into your life experience. When you are fully focused on feeling what it would be like to have what you want, the magic begins and the things you want, the people you want, and the experiences you want show up. Think of your "mind" as the magnet.  It is knowing you have the ability to create by choice what you want in your life. You…

Studies indicate that women, especially, display avoidance behavior. With a phobia, the fear is excessive. For instance, you can have a fear of killer sharks. However, your fear can be so great that it manifests as a phobia, should you avoid swimming altogether. Money phobic women tend to have confused ideas about finance. They prefer to leave all the money talk to their spouse or partner. They are likely to react in ways…

We are afraid that we do not have enough for our needs such as old age, a bigger home or university fees for our children.

    Energy flows where attention goes. Distractions divide your attention. You lose focus. According to Gloria Mark, a leader in interruption science, the average knowledge worker switches tasks every three minutes, and, once distracted, a worker takes nearly a half-hour to resume the original task. Distractions can be useful for temporarily removing anxiety. For example, a doctor may engage in small talk with a toddler while he administers an injection on her arm. He draws her attention away from any pain that she may feel. She feels a prick but her attention is placed on the conversation with…

  • Did They Actually Plant a Tree?

    Maria Erving
    28 Jul 2014 | 1:46 pm
    Inspirations sometimes strikes out of pure annoyance! Life is great that way, it’s always inspiring and giving if we choose to see it that way. I saw this picture on Twitter, and I see these types of pics now and then, I’m sure you all do. I wonder how many of these people who re-tweeted and shared this pic with their friends and followers actually did something? Like actually planted a tree.  My bet is that a very (very!) low percentage actually took any other “action” than to share this pic with others. Thus no help was actually given. This is something that really annoys…
  • What Is An “Attitude of Gratitude”?

    Maria Erving
    25 Jul 2014 | 7:00 am
    Gratitude is a feeling, it’s an attitude, and it can’t be forced or manipulated. It’s fine to do gratitude lists, they do affect perspective and experience, but if it’s only on a thought level it’s not going to do anything else but maybe help you feel “good” (or better) right then and there. And to just repeatedly write things you’re “suppose” to be grateful for in order to please a God so that he will give you your desires is futile and spiritually immature. Some people even strain to “feel grateful” for something difficult or challenging in…
  • God Is Not Testing You

    Maria Erving
    21 Jul 2014 | 4:23 am
    Just before a breakthrough in life there’s a time of trials and challenges (not always, but usually), and I too, like many people do, used to think that God is testing my faith, or God is doing this or that to test my strength and dedication. God is not doing any such thing! There is no God out there, observing you and keeping track of what you’re doing and playing these twisted and sick little games with you. The sad thing is that most people to some extent believe these things; that God is testing them and making them suffer. I’m not even going to get into all the hell…
  • Faith is a Productive Force

    Maria Erving
    16 Jul 2014 | 6:20 am
    Nothing is more powerful than a changed mind – and when a mind is transformed and restored to Truth there can be no more fear or worry. Faith does this to us, when we keep going and doing our thing despite of what appearances tell us and regardless of if people are hearing us or not; we just keep moving with that which is of importance to us.  Anything we do, whatever goals we have, whatever desires and hopes we have for ourselves or humanity, none of them can become reality unless there’s faith involved. Most important is having faith because when faith is lacking there’s…

  • Tough Times Don’t Last!

    Anthony Basich
    12 Jul 2014 | 8:08 am
    Tough times don’t last. Tough people do. And they last by working hard through their obstacles and challenges. No matter how tough the going gets, the tough get (and keep on) going. They last by perseverance. They last by self discipline. They last by determination. Sometimes hard luck is just inevitable. But it is your attitude toward your hard luck, and how you react to the situation, that determines what your outcome will be. A great example is a story that comes from “A Tale of Two Men,” by James Allen: I knew two men who, at an early age, lost their hard earned savings of years.

    What do you really get as a reward for your achievement? Well, I hate to break the news to you but… It’s not the million dollar bank account. It’s not the flashy Lamborghini. It’s not the perfect Soul Mate. It’s not the beach front dream home. It’s not the tropical vacations… Nope… The “real” gold when you hit paydirt is who you have become through the process.  Think of what you have really gained and you will see the true value of your achievement: It’s the new skills. It’s the priceless knowledge. It’s the self…

    Responsibility. It’s the one thing you need to take in order to achieve ultimate success and live the life that you have always wanted. You are responsible for 100% of everything that happens in your life: Your successes and your failures. Your wins and your losses. Your love and your hate. Your abundance and your debt. Your happiness and your sadness. No matter whether in your career, your relationships or your health, you are responsible for what happens. No one can cheat you out of ultimate success but yourself.

  • The True Reward for Your Effort

    Anthony Basich

    It’s not the money. It’s not the fame. It’s not the trophy. It’s not the expensive new car. It’s not the big house on the hill… It’s what you become as a person that is the true reward for the dedication, determination and discipline that you put forth in your conquest. The metamorphosis that you have gone through is priceless in comparison to any material object that you can buy or social status that you can achieve through your trials. The highest reward for a person’s toil is not what they get for it, but what they become by it.” ~John Ruskin So when you are…

    Justin Mazza
    28 Jul 2014 | 6:25 pm
    Okay, some of you have read my story about how I became a Tony Robbins student. Long story short, I was just moved out of my father’s basement (17 years ago) and into a little studio apartment. I thought I would be happy to be on my own. Long story short; I wasn’t happy at all. In fact I became a little depressed to say the least. That is until one night, (around 2am because I couldn’t sleep) I happened to be watching a late night Tony Robbins infomercial on QVC. The truth is, I couldn’t fall asleep that night and I was hoping that the infomercial would dull my mind enough so…

We are evolving toward more and more energy even though retaining some degree of physicality. Now we simply create an energy field that is dense enough for a soul to take form in if it wishes to belong to our society. It does not happen any longer within the body. Does that make sense? Q: Yes. B: We no longer sleep, no longer eat, we take energy directly; but we used to. Q: Do you blend your energy with another, like a male and a…

Medical studies have proven that unrestful sleep may lead to a host of health problems like weight gain, mood disorders and high blood pressure to name just a few. Wouldn’t it be nice to be one of those people that can just fall straight into a deep sleep, the moment their head hits the pillow? Unfortunately, not everyone is blessed that way. Many people spend endless hours staring up at the ceiling each night, wondering whether blissful slumber will ever arrive. And if you’re one of those people, I’d like to introduce you to a brand new…

    Does it seem that only people like Stephen Hawking, Steven Spielberg, and Steve Jobs use their brainpower efficiently? So stupendous do their talents appear to the rest of us, that we tend to look upon such geniuses as divinely gifted, endowed with super powers. But… what if you could develop superior mental powers similar to those from the greatest minds of mankind? Dr. Win Wenger’s 30 years of study shows that genius is not a result of genetic superiority, but a pattern of mental conditioning. This means genius is within your grasp, and you can prove it to yourself during the…

    Is this you? You realize you lean towards introversion and that’s an OK thing! You’re thinking maybe you just need to find the right path that fits your introverted style. No more extrovert mask to fit in! And you think self-employment might give you the freedom to create work the way you want it. (Yes!) But, you’re nervous about what self-employment avenues will work for you as an introvert. (“Ack, and what about marketing?!”) Sound familiar? You’re not alone.

I call it Analysis Paralysis. I was part of a discussion online about the overthinking loop, and my friend, Alison, offered these fantastic tips. These tips are tried-and-true and easy-to-do.

    [Image: Ever feel like you don't want to come out and be seen?

It’s very important, for everyone’s well-being, that we understand the difference. Let’s clarify this… First, Some Definitions of Introversion and Shyness Shyness is a feeling…

    I think we all tend to confuse extroversion with confidence. So let’s re-think it. I’m an introvert and when I speak up confidently about something, people sometimes say, “You must be an extrovert.” Hey, I can be an introvert AND be confident and out-spoken. (I can hear my confident introverted friend Jenn saying “Hell yeh.”) Do you think introversion and confidence can go together? Think about it. I was painfully shy in the past and I’m not anymore… but I’m still an introvert. I believe that no matter how shy or anxious you might feel in…

    Arrogance. It’s the thing that separates the can-do’s from the can-do-way-better-singlehandedly-with-my-eyes-closed’s, and it’s the quality that rubs you up the wrong way faster than an amorous Edward Scissorhands. Common perception is that there’s a fine line between being confident and being arrogant, when in fact the gap between them is as wide as the Grand Canyon. But I have to admit to times when someone’s screwed up or dropped the ball when I’ve been known to say, “Yet another reason why I should run everything”. The thought that I…

    There’s an expectation out there that to get ahead you’ve got to be “alpha”, at least some of the time. You’ve got to go out and get it. You’ve got to ask people for what you want. You’ve got to put yourself out there, and you’ve got to stand out in the crowd. Other than their potential links with the cult of hustle, these more outgoing, extroverted tendencies are good, reasonable things. They can play a part in getting what you want and can surely help you find meaningful success. I’ve got nothing against them. Other than the fact that if…

    I attended a dating event a few years ago where I was coaching singles who wanted a little help with their nerves. It was a dressy affair in London, so I wore my sharpest suit and I swear I walked a little taller and with a little more swagger than normal. I strode in, believing I was all that and a bag of potato chips, and for the first 10 minutes found myself eager to demonstrate my alpha qualities to all around me. I was on a brief power trip until I realised that I was behaving very much like a prize asshole, so I gave myself a metaphorical slap around the chops and cut it out.

For context, here’s what he was sitting on the very top of: When asked if he was afraid up there, Tom answered with a simple “No”. He wasn’t afraid, he just wanted to do it.

There is a fine line, however, between missing somebody and loving them a lot of for it, and missing somebody to the purpose of stress on the connection. Time apart will truly strengthen a relationship: that point and energy you pay missing somebody will build even as a lot of of a bearing because the time/energy spent on one superb date. However time apart strains a relationship too; “out of sight, out of mind” plays a task in cheating. But, then again, if you are missing…

    It happens to us all. We have ‘one of those weeks.’ Where the seemingly stable ground is whipped from beneath us and before we know it we’re freefalling through uncertainty. I don’t know about you, but it always seems to sneak up on me when I’m not looking. It’s usually when things are going great, everything’s amazing and life is just flowing. And then out of nowhere. BOOM. Something happens that changes everything. And we go into meltdown. The self-doubt appears. The ‘what ifs’ rear their ugly heads. And we’re left questioning. Why me? Why now? Just why?

    23 Jun 2014 | 5:33 pm
    I was talking to an old friend yesterday and he was asking me if I was happier since I’ve started my coaching business. Here’s what I said: “I would say that I’m more fulfilled since I’ve been coaching others. I feel like I’m positively contributing to the world in some way and this feels good. I’m not sure that that consistent happiness is viable…we get fleeting moments of happiness and then it escapes us…it’s fulfilment that’s more important.” Here’s what he said: “I don’t feel fulfilled I guess…always feel like I could do more. Maybe I’m just bored of…

    Deepak Chopra said that recently in an interview with Oprah Winfrey regarding how he feels of what others think of him and it has become one of my favorite things to recite during times of stress or irritation caused by someone else.  It was a brilliant one-liner which goes to the heart of understanding the place of the Ego in our life and the lives of others.  At the core of Deepak Chopra’s statement is the realization that what other people do and say is really about them – their own mental and emotional state, level of consciousness, and overall phase of evolution.  We can…

    We need to turn our brains into noise canceling headphones. – Shawn Achor, Professor of Psychology at Harvard University,  and author of The Happiness Advantage We need to decrease both the external noise and the internal noise in our lives says Professor Shawn Achor.

  • Imperfection merely means Incompletion
    9 Jun 2014 | 6:09 pm
    Practice “self love and love of all others–and love of the imperfections you imagine you see in both. In truth, both are perfect in their ‘imperfection,’ for ‘imperfection’ merely means ‘incompletion.” Neale Donald Walsch I can’t get that line out of my head – “imperfection” merely means “incompletion”. In relation to our view and judgement of other people, it implies and requests a level of acceptance that most of us don’t achieve on a daily basis. The sentiment resonated especially strongly today, as I ran into an old colleague who I…

Well it has, but while it’s been distracting it has also been eyeopening and new and exciting things have lined up on the horizon. Just typical!

    You’d think the little voices in our head would be on our side, but truthfully they’re not always. They might think they are, trying so thoughtfully to protect us from the bold, adventurous moves we wish we’d make. They act as guardian angels, placing a precautionary blanket around us and a safety net below us to prevent our determined actions from crashing us down. They’re words of comfort, with good intentions, only they prohibit us from breaking through the realms of our fears into a world were our dreams can actually exist. Every successful person knows that while…

He is in pain management care, and not a good pain management clinic at that. His doc shows up smelling like he's been drinking. You can smell the doctor's breath though it smells partly like mouthwash too. This is sad, because my friend is taking his meds, drinks too, because his medication is not working well.

    I found this inspiring quote on happiness – “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to turn on the light.” So is happiness like a light bulb that you can turn on with just a flick of a switch? Image source: A lot of people think that happiness is uncontrollable and dependent on external factors that influence your state of mind. But this really is not the case.

Education for the Home Business Entrepreneur – Managing Overwhelm Today I read this article by Mashable called 3 Phrases That Actually Make You Feel More Overwhelmed and I had an epiphany. Basically the way you express your lack of time creates a bad mindset – which I totally buy into. Your mindset is the foundation that every business is built on. The article says instead of saying, I don’t have time,…

    Take a moment of self-reflection. How do you take in information? Do you absorb it? Do you read it and think to yourself that you need to do it? Then a few seconds later the dog barks and you need to take him out – then the thought is lost? Do you revisit it? Do you just move on? The entrepreneur that thrives in today’s world is the one that admits they’re guilty of being complacent and creates systems in their business (and lives) to defuse it.  They know that the key to growing a business is having the appropriate steps in place to avoid falling into complacency.

    It’s not rocket-science the world around you is changing. The Internet is growing and expanding. As it expands, it creates change. The Internet will create opportunities – coincidently it will also end many industries as we know them. Some businesses will survive – some won’t. The pendulum has swung and now it’s time to get onboard or lose money in your business. My guess is you’re already leaving some money on the table by not understanding how online marketing works. The largest oversight of most businesses is the consumer – the very consumer they…
  • Behaviors Determine the Success of Entrepreneurs

    I get the pleasure of working with entrepreneurs every day. I’ve worked with some that have experienced huge success and I’ve also worked with some that just couldn’t get it together. Over the years I’ve learned the traits that divide. It’s not whose the prettiest or the smartest, those assets don’t have a lot weight in the entrepreneurial game. It’s the behaviors and mindsets of the individuals that separate. Some entrepreneurs are successful at creating the behaviors that equal success whereas others will spend most of their entrepreneurial journey…

    Last week in my blog I wrote about something that’s literally the core of all success, the mindset. I wrote about the 6 attributes that separates mediocre entrepreneurs from extremely successful ones. This week we’ll stay within that topic but talk about a different angle, the art of persuasion. Being able to persuade others is critical to an entrepreneur’s success. I was talking with one of my friends about this and the funny thing was when I mentioned having a talent to easily persuade others, she took that as a negative thing. I found it interesting how she related…

  • Can You Be Too Practical?

    Mind Snapshots
    23 Jul 2014 | 3:49 am
    Have you ever stopped yourself from doing what you wanted because it wasn’t practical? A lot of the choices I made reflected back on what I deemed as practical. I missed out on a lot of things and ultimately became unfulfilled. I didn’t live a life based on what mattered to me. I didn’t do a lot of things I really wanted to do because I labeled them as impractical or not needed. I failed to try new things or to go on adventures because I was too busy being practical. I’m not saying we should be careless and just be selfish. But I do know what it feels like to constantly choose…

    On October 9, 2012, a 15 year old girl was riding the school bus on her way home when a gunman charged the bus, asked for her by name, pointed the gun at her and shot her. The bullet went through her head, neck and into her shoulder. All this happened because she wanted to go to school. Some people did not want her to learn for fear that education would give her power. So they decided to assassinate her. Her name is Malala Yousafzai. Malala started getting involved in social justice at an early stage because of her activist father.  Malala is one of the world’s most inspiring and…

  • Are You Unhappy With Your Situation Yet You’re Not Doing Anything About It?

    Creating a life you want. Sounds good, but what if we don’t know which path will lead us there? What if we’re confused about what direction to take? What if we don’t have clarity on which steps to take? What if we fear we make the wrong choice? We are always plagued with conflicting thoughts and because we are confused we’re afraid to make a decision. When you are torn, making a decision feels like you’re going around in circles. Have you noticed that? One minute your mind tells you one thing, the next minute it tells you another. It’s an endless cycle. Irony is, the more we avoid…
