    I’m in the process of preparing my house for sale. My youngest daughter graduates from high school this year, and I’ll be without a child in the house for the first time in 23 years. Having lived in the same house for nearly 18 of those 23, we’ve accumulated a lot of stuff.

    Critical to the way you use your available time is the number of skills at your disposal to convert free time into meaningful endeavours. If all you know how to do is play on that shiny console your free time options are severely reduced. So how do we start adding to our skill set? Where to start, where to end? What is Know What You Don’t Know? Know what you don’t know is a systematic process of working backward from a desired goal or skill detailing the knowledge you need to get from your current level of knowledge. Why use Know What You Don’t Know? The frustration caused by how vast a…

    “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” ― Nikola Tesla This is my review of the Unlimited Abundance Home Training Program with Christie Marie Sheldon. First let me say that I am an affiliate for Mind Valley which is the host company for the program: Unlimited Abundance with Christie Marie Sheldon. Secondly, I was given a free copy which makes it much easier to actually write a real review. One of the perks of being a blogger is getting free products and I love that benefit to say the least.

  • A Better Way To Think About Choices

    The Right Question
    James de Garmo
    10 Jan 2015 | 8:20 pm
    There’s a sketch by Mary Engelbreit, justifiably famous, of a girl setting off down a path into a forest.  She’s just come to a fork in the road.  One sign says, “Your Life”, and the other one says, “No Longer an Option.”  It’s brilliant.  But seldom are choices ever this clear. If only every choice was this clear! By now you know I’ve read an endless string of self help books.  And all had at least one good thing to say.  Despite my mildly skeptical stance on self help, what I don’t say as often is that without it, a lot of people would be…

Watch and be immersed by the story of Chris Gardner as he struggled with homelessness, taking care of his son and getting through going broke in his life. I watch this regularly as it honestly gives me the boost I need to continue working hard despite things seemingly looking completely hopeless.  2) The Secret Life of Walter Mitty Okay I know Ben Stiller gets a bad rap from time to time, but I honestly think he's really good in this movie.

  • How To Stay Sane in Your High Pressure Job

    Paul I. Breton
    26 Jan 2015 | 1:09 pm
    It’s almost inevitable that you’ll encounter some stress at work, but sometimes the pressures of work mount to worryingly high levels. What’s more, it’s not always easy to recognise when you've crossed the line and it’s all become too much. Instead of finding ways to really manage our stress, we take on more and more work and quickly burn out. As you're probably aware, stress taxes the body as well as the mind – high blood pressure, fatigue and reduced concentration are all common symptoms. In a fast-paced job it’s essential not to allow yourself to be overwhelmed, but how can…
  • 5 Easy Ways to Love Who You See in the Mirror

    Jermaine Harris
    25 Jan 2015 | 8:58 pm
    A poor self-image is becoming increasingly common in the modern world. One of my mentors once said “You can never ‘out-succeed’ your self image”. What he meant was, it will be extremely difficult for you to reach your goals and live your dream life if you have a negative self-image. To use my own life as an example; I used to see myself as an ‘Average Joe’ with less than satisfactory health, a mediocre physique and a middle of the road job. The only way that I was ever going to do something meaningful and create success in my life was to enhance my self-image. After developing a…

    Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain There comes a point in our life when we realize that we are meant for something bigger on this planet. Unfortunately, discovering what we really want and how to get it is one of the most challenging, stressful and frustrating process of our entire life. But, in the end, it's what define who we are and what we stand for. Since I was very…

    The theme for today’s post is conquering your marketplace through sales. To help you better understand the key elements of the sales process I started going through the catalog of the biggest sales I have ever made. I’ve made a lot of sales, but what was the biggest? Then it hit me! It was selling this smart, elegant, loving and stunningly beautiful Brazilian woman to marry THIS crazy red headed guy. The sales presentation I used on her is the same format you can use to sell most anything to anyone. Because trust me, it was a sale that was way above my head and…

    I have a problem. A very serious problem. It’s destroying my (productive) life. My problem: I am easily seduced. It seems I am weak. Every day I set out to be disciplined. Every day I promise I will not stray. But every day somehow the siren’s song of email, texts, phone calls and social alerts always prostrate me. I submit. I give in. And once again the grand intentions of my day are squandered in the vortex of reacting to the calls of other people’s agenda. But no more. I am no longer going to rely on my good intentions, my well-laid plans for the day…

    Does the idea of your own death inspire you? Let me share a story of how it did for this one man: Imagine waking up tomorrow morning, grabbing your cup of coffee, and opening up the newspaper to find your own obituary. That’s exactly what happened to Swedish chemist Alfred Nobel in 1888. Ludvig Nobel, Alfred’s brother, had passed away, but a French newspaper mistakenly thought it was Alfred. They printed Alfred’s obituary instead. Alfred was an armaments manufacturer and the inventor of dynamite. For his accomplishments, the premature obituary named him the “merchant…

    Life has become very dependent on the cellular phone. People can’t go out of home without it, and if they forget it at home, they feel as if they have left some important part of themselves at home. It is true to say that the cellular phone, and especially the smartphone, has turned into an extension of the human body. Let me ask you, what would happen, if you leave your phone at home on purpose? I mean, for just for a few hours. Would you feel bad, stressed, unsafe and unhappy? What would happen, if for just a few hours you don’t see what your friends wrote of Facebook, or other…
  • Do You Think Inner Peace Is Important Enough for You?

    Remez Sasson
    10 Jan 2015 | 1:39 am
    It seems few people know what inner peace means. Actually, it is not something people think about, or even know it exists. Inner peace is not peace between countries and nations. It is something that happens inside you. It is a complete change of your inner world, and therefore, of your attitude, how you look at the world, and how you behave. This of course, affects your environment. People talk about peace in the world, between nations, but without inner peace, any external peace has no real roots. Everyone has worries, fears and problems. There is also strain and anxiety, due to work,…

    Keep a record of your progress. Keep a record of the things that you are improving so you can measure and manage your growth. You can’t accomplish an abstract goal. You’ll never be sure if you’re finished or not. You want to become a better manager. You want to be a better parent. You want to be a better father. Many of us have these kinds of hopes — vague hopes. The problem with these kinds of hopes is that they are not specific. They include no step-by-step directions and no outcomes. You want to be a better manager. Well, what does that mean? How does someone do that? How will you…

    Never be contented with the size of your vocabulary. Learning new words everyday can help leaders grasp ideas old and new.  Every idea requires a word. The more words you know, the greater is the opportunity to make sense of who you are, what you must do, and what the world needs from you. I will always be thankful to Dr Celodonio Aguilar for he required us to look for five new words everyday and use those words in five sentences. He required us to write, not type, our sentences because he wanted us to make sense of each sentence. Grow your vocabulary. An enlarged vocabulary is a visible…

You have too many things to offer to the world. Remember, the eagle looks the cloudless sun in…

It was such an insult to his intelligence that he walked out of my office never to return. I was fired. It struck me just as funny then as it does now. “I had assaulted him in a way I would have never thought was an assault. It was a mere suggestion, but it was mind-bending to him. You would have thought I was trying to convert him to a bizarre new religion.” It’s all too easy – especially…

    In the Harry Potter books and films, the main characters are often threatened by evil forces, in the form of both human and not so human entities such as Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes). Author J.K. Rowling says, “I feel very strongly that there is a move to sanitise literature because we’re trying to protect children, not from the grizzly facts of life, but from their own imaginations. “We need to fear and need to confront fear in a controlled environment and that’s a very important part of growing up.” [] Literature and drama, including movies, can…

Being a visual person has made looking at list upon list a big chore and with no picture clue, I would easily forget why I had bookmarked something in the first place.This was regardless of whether I had arranged the bookmarks into folders and subfolders. So when Pinterest came along, I was very curious to see if it would work as a visual bookmarking tool for me. This blog post will hopefully explain how I use Pinterest and how it works for me. As I have already mentioned, I use Pinterest mainly as a…

    A long while back, I wrote a post about the mumborg entitled 'Taking the piss! literally' but it could have only be taken literally, if you knew what I meant in the non literal sense. If that even makes sense? I have friends from all around the globe, thanks to blogging, so they are usually the victims of my creative license, especially when it comes to 'British Slang'. I like to throw words at them, that can mean many many different things.  To be honest though, it is generally myself that ends up being confused.For some reason, the words that are the most fun, are the ones that…

  • Cheap or Frugal, which Are You?

    26 Jan 2015 | 12:03 am
    Rich people are cheap! I normally avoid generalizations, but here a few examples to prove my point. J. Paul Getty, a certified oil billionaire had a pay telephone in his home, Warren Buffet drives a Cadillac (replaced his 8 year old car last year), and Donald Trump has his wife cut his hair.  Sure, you do not have to be rich to be cheap or frugal. Frugal is not cheap!! Geography matters In Los Angeles, I see rich people all the time! They drive Bentleys, Ferraris and other expensive exotic cars. They live in Beverly Hills and other parts of Los Angeles where homes begin at million or even…
  • Do you have enough retirement savings?

    23 Jan 2015 | 12:07 am
    Do you have enough retirement savings?  It should be no surprise than too many Americans have not saved enough for retirement.  So much has been written about baby boomers and retirement, but a Los Angeles Times  article shows how it is not limited to them.  10,000 baby boomers turn 65 years old every day and will for the next nineteen years!  Will you have enough savings for retirement? Reality Pew Charitable Trust says Generation X (38-47 year olds.) lost almost half their wealth in the great recession between 2007 and 2010.  Young baby boomers (48-57 year olds) lost nearly 28% of…
  • What is Prosperity and how do you get there?

    21 Jan 2015 | 12:01 am
    Economic prosperity is not really a road!  In fact, it may not be much more than a path.  It is not a location and it can only lead you to a goal.  It is filled with many curves, dead ends, U-turns, attractions, amusements, distractions and pitfalls. Google or Yahoo maps will not help you get there!  It starts with a goal and a plan.  It is taking that dream you have and making it a reality!   What stops you?  Is it fear of the unknown or ignorance?  Ignorance can be cured, if you are willing to do something about it.  I often hear young people complain about their chosen career or…

    Is your financial health important to you? If your answer is no, stop here! I learned a long time ago that I cannot influence everyone so I focus on the people who realize that my information is important to them. An annual checkup involves a physical examination, laboratory tests, vital signs and monitor any changes in health. An examination of your financial health is an opportunity to monitor your progress. Medical Checkup A medical physical involves determining your physical health and a financial checkup is an examination of your financial health. Similar to a medical checkup, it…
  • Negotiating Is Easy!

    16 Jan 2015 | 12:01 am
    When you ask a question, you are negotiating!   Negotiation is a dialogue between two or more people or parties intended to reach an understanding, resolve point of difference or gain advantage in outcome of dialogue, to produce an agreement upon courses of action, to bargain for individual or collective advantage.  Don’t you negotiate all the time in your personal and professional lives? Kids know how to negotiate! When you were a child you were a natural negotiator!  Your negotiating style was fairly limited though.  It started as soon as you wanted something.  You cried and cried…

    Critical to the way you use your available time is the number of skills at your disposal to convert free time into meaningful endeavours. If all you know how to do is play on that shiny console your free time options are severely reduced. So how do we start adding to our skill set? Where to start, where to end? What is Know What You Don’t Know? Know what you don’t know is a systematic process of working backward from a desired goal or skill detailing the knowledge you need to get from your current level of knowledge.

  • Do You Overcommit? How To Deal with Problematic Multipotentialite Patterns

    Bev Webb

    Like a kid raiding a candy store, I’ve found that it’s all too easy to amass a huge heap of delicious projects to gorge on. Unfortunately, like that kid who will more than likely end up feeling queasy from eating all that candy, I recently discovered that my eyes are bigger than my belly. In the mad rush to satisfy my multipotentialite craving to to push forward on all my shiny new projects, I realised I’d overcommitted. I’d overcommitted my time, energy, brain power, and every other resource at my disposal. You may well find this scenario very familiar. You too may…

I’ve struggled with this ‘problem’ for as long as I can remember– having varied, multiple interest and goals and cycling through them on a regular basis. It’s has caused me much anguish throughout my life, since I thought there was something truly wrong with me. I just never stopped to think that there were others out there like me. Nor did it ever occur to me that maybe it was okay to be this way. Just reading the website for 30…

At last, it was time to grab hold of the tangle of dreams in my head and to tease each out into a concrete goal for 2015. I’d been thinking about these projects for ages and I knew that 2015 was going to be the most fun year ever. It would just be a case of waking up a bit earlier, squeezing this project in here and that project in there, and cutting down on procrastination. I wasn’t 100% sure how it was all going to work but nothing could wipe the…

    Have you ever made plans for the next day? When the next day came, did you remember the plan, but start procrastinating anyway? What went wrong? I’ve already talked about the reason why we procrastinate, and within that reason is a small, but critical detail that many of us—myself included—fail to internalize and implement with regularity. Failure to do it means you’ll fail to take action every time. In order to take action, you must first terminate deliberation. When we make decisions, first we deliberate (i.e., weigh our options), and then we implement. But before…

Opportunity cost asks, “What is the cost of doing this instead of all the other options?” It highlights what could be rather than what is. “What is” is a lot of people sitting on a couch for five hours every day passively absorbing data from a screen. Now let’s look at what could be. Since TV isn’t all bad, we’re going to see what life could…

The town next to Monterey is Pacific Grove, and one of my favorite places to go there was a grove of eucalyptus trees – this was the winter home of the monarch butterflies. When you walked into the grove and see towering eucalyptus trees, you’d think you were seeing their leaves draping down from the top of the tree to near the ground. Then…

    True transformation occurs only when we can look at ourselves squarely and face our attachments and inner demons, free from the buzz of commercial distraction and false social realities. We have to retreat into our own cocoons and come face-to-face with who we are.  We have to turn toward our own inner darkness.  For only by abandoning its attachments and facing the darkness does the caterpillar’s body begin to spread out and its light, beautiful wings begin to form. ~Julia Butterfly Hill __________________________ This past month, I’ve been supporting the 24 people who are going…

Back in those days, the music soundtrack was usually on a cassette tape through a boom box at the division ring or if a tournament was large enough, it would be played through a PA system. This was an exciting time since the whole concept of using music in martial arts was so new and many of us felt that…

    Negotiating: Speak With One Voice When you are engaged in business (or other) negotiations on behalf of your company or team, be certain that you are always negotiating with one voice. Negotiating as an entire team (or as a fragmented group) will almost always work against you and your team in arriving at agreements, settlements or arrangements with vendors, investors or any other outside third party.Amateurs in the art and science of negotiating often speak with multiple voices when dealing with their counterparts on the other side of the bargaining table, and this usually yields poor…

In the process we lose parts of ourselves.Here are my tips on how to stop waiting for acceptance.Stop being a people pleaserYou can’t please everyone so do yourself a favour and stop trying.People pleasers go out of their way trying to make sure everyone is happy, often making…

The collective mind is something we all share via the body and brain. The brain can tune into whatever aspects of the collective that it is tuned into. So, if you are experiencing emotional unrest that is because you are tuned to that frequency. Question: How do I change the tune?

  • 5 Harsh Truths of Life You’d Rather Not Think About

    Steve Errey
    21 Jan 2015 | 1:00 am
    Life is a whole lot of things all smooshed together. You can literally quote me on that.It’s cruel, beautiful, harsh, joyful, mysterious. Sometimes it smells like herb roasted chicken. Other times it stinks of piss. Sometimes it’s just hilarious (I like that bit) and you want to keep laughing until your eyes dessicate, but it’s also a real bitch who’ll slap you hard in face without warning and then tweet to the whole world a red-faced picture of you in tears, with the comment “Stop attention seeking you prissy little cry-baby.”I’m all for prodding…

Which is why I’m working with a new coach to kick me up the ass.I got in my own way. I let little things divert me and big things stop me. Which means I have work to do.I figure you can relate.The things you want to work on and the texture you want your life to have will only happen once you get out of your own goddam way.

  • The Difference Between Self-Doubt and Second-Guessing

    One big reason people end up lost, afraid and without confidence is because they’re full of self-doubt. Another is that they’re always second-guessing themselves, but not much thought is given to the difference between these two experiences and what it means for how you handle each of them.So here’s the difference.Second-guessing is wondering if your actions are enough. Did you take the right job? Did you move to the right city? Are you dating the right person? It also projects forwards. How do I know which job is the right one? How do I know where I should move to? How do I…

    Having friends of opposite sex when you are already committed to someone else is not wrong, unless you try to cross certain limits. Cheating in a relationship is not just when you sleep with someone else, there is also something what we call Emotional Infidelity. One can trace physical infidelity easily but it is quite tricky to spot emotional infidelity. To emotionally cheat on your partner is when you share a much stronger emotional bond with someone else than your better half. When you love to spend a great deal of time and energy to know this new person in your life and you start ignoring…
  • How serious can the impact of age difference be in a relationship?

    Dr Prem Jagyasi (c)
    22 Jan 2015 | 9:55 pm
    One of the most touted topics regarding love relationships is the age gap or difference of age between two partners. Some say it does affect a relationship, while others believe that there is no such difference like the age difference, which comes in the way of love relationships. The ones who favor the age difference in relationships say that it is a good thing, as the younger partner gets to learn so much from the elder partner. On the other hand are the people who are against this notion and believe that the age difference in a relationship only results in emotional hang-ups. Well, there…
  • Behavior and style that make PDA cute, not disgusting

    Dr Prem Jagyasi (c)
    20 Jan 2015 | 2:32 am
    Public Display of Affection (PDA) is a thing that many people find cute and lovable, while there are some who think of it to be disgusting. Well, both these opinions are correct because people who think it is disgusting are the ones who have seen the bad side of PDA, while the ones who find it cute must have seen only the good side of it. There is a thin line, if crossed makes PDA a vulgar and an obnoxious behavior. On the other hand, if people respect that thin line and the boundary, there is nothing cuter than PDA. It is tricky though, but if you know how to do it right then there is…

  • How to make him regret breaking up with you

    Dr Prem Jagyasi (c)
    15 Jan 2015 | 2:32 am
    A break up with your ex depends upon many factors and the after effects of a break up depend upon the factors that had led a split. If both the partners took the split up decision in unison then it is fine but if one partner leaves another without any valid reason, and especially when the reason is some other girl or a boy, it is damn painful. For instance, a boyfriend leaves his innocent girlfriend just because he starts liking or gets hooked up with some other girl. Poor girlfriend is all shattered and broken. However, in such circumstances, one should not feel sad and broken; rather one…

      Here’s a question, are you a sheep? Did you know that if you get a pack of humans to walk a certain direction, others will start following, just like sheep? In this video Joe Rogan tries to awaken the world into noticing, and better yet, claiming their own individualistic place in the world. From Rogan’s perspective, society has made people into sheep following the peer pressure of their culture, media, friends, family, fears, and worries into everything they really don’t want to do. This leads people into having jobs they dislike, to buy things to impress others they…

I should know–most of those closest to me consider me more or less a pessimist, and never fail to remind me of it. I’ve always kind of felt they were a little off in their evaluation, though. Like, a naturally negative person? Me? It doesn’t seem right. My observations don’t seem negative to me; they just seem real. They just reflect reality. And besides, if I really…

While this is all great in theory, I think often we can get sucked into other people’s dreams…we end up setting goals because we feel like we should, we start going to the gym because that’s what should happen at the start of the year, we look at new career options when we don’t really know what we want.

As a coach, in 2014 I made a conscious decision to bring my focus to help others do work they love – mainly because it’s such a HUGE part of life! And I’m all about successful living. The time we spend ‘at work’ far outweighs many other aspects of our lives, yet we so often fall into jobs by accident and end up doing work we definitely don’t love.

    A person told me a touching story at the gym today and I wanted to share it with you.  I was sitting in the sauna and an older gentlemen came in and immediately started to speak to me.  He was the kind of happy person you don’t see enough of these days.  He was so exuberant that his head could not contain the many thoughts and words he wanted to share. They came out quickly and with urgency. He was a good friend to have if you’re a good listener… He started by telling me of his early morning routine and how every day he is awoken by all the birds chirping in his yard.  It turns…

  • The Wisdom of Water
    2 Jan 2015 | 11:26 am
    One of my favorite wooded areas to walk in has a beautiful winding stream next to a walking path.  Hardly anyone goes there so it’s a wonderful place to find some solitude and peace.  One day as I was sitting by the bank of the stream, a small voice spoke in my head and whispered “Be Like the Water”.  I looked at the flowing stream for a while trying to understand the message.  I watched as the water flowed on its path, coming up against small obstacles – a fallen tree, various large rocks, and overgrown bushes reaching out and into the stream.  But no matter what came in its…
  • Let it Flow, Let it Flow, Let it Flow
    26 Dec 2014 | 5:18 pm
    The secret to achieving ‘Flow’ is to understand that what is flowing is Energy. Especially the high vibratory energy of Love. Love is the fuel that the Universe and all of Consciousness runs on, everything else is just fumes. Whenever we act in a manner that is not in the direction of love (in relation to ourselves or others), we create an energy block. Things then don’t go our way.  Sure, through sheer human willpower we can sometimes temporarily break through those blocks. But it doesn’t last (Lance Armstrong, Tiger Woods, and Bill Cosby are all good recent examples).
  • Holistic Intelligence – Don’t Settle For Anything Less
    22 Dec 2014 | 6:00 am
    As we enter the midpoint of the 2014 Holiday Season, the best and worst of humanity is on display.  Making people work on Thanksgiving a few weeks ago to increase already robust corporate profits is just the tip of the iceberg.  You may wonder, how can a nation that is full of “intelligent” people allow this to happen? Intelligence can be a very subjective thing.  As we come to know more of the human mind’s effects on our personal and professional lives, we start to see that intelligence is much more than what is routinely captured in IQ scores, grades, standardized tests, or…

  • 5 Thought Provoking Questions That Will Challenge You

    Ikechi Awazie
    25 Jan 2015 | 7:00 pm
    A cocoon of a butterfly was once found by a man . A day came that a small opening appeared in the cocoon. This made the man so curious that he sat and watched the butterfly for several hours, as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. At a time, the butterfly seemed to stop making any progress. It was as if it had reached its limit and could go no farther. The man then decided to help the butterfly and took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon which made the butterfly emerge so easily. But then the butterfly developed a swollen body and small…

She talks about why people make excuses to avoid working on themselves. Enjoy this post and be inspired.   We have all been there. Laziness, blaming others for our own problems or seeing the world through gloomy glasses – we have all experienced one, but most likely all, and there’s nothing wrong with that. The problem begins when we start making them a habit. When we start making excuses in order to avoid having to put in the work to change ourselves. I have…

  • 3 Powerful Dieting Techniques That Add Control Towards Endea

    13 Nov 2014 | 4:45 am
    For many people, portion control is the biggest hurdle. It is a common grievance among my friends and co-workers. They claim to eat all correct meals yet have a problem with their weight. Part control is more essential than anything else. Training your system to regularly overeat turns off the satiation indicators in your brain. As time passes, it becomes increasingly tough to turn those receptors back on, ultimately causing bad waistlines and a society wondering what took place. Eat until youre complete, then pay your fork, its as simple as that.# 1 as soon as your working out program can be…

    Jacky Lim
    13 Jan 2015 | 7:50 pm
    What is the measure of success? For a lot of people, financial success is their ultimate benchmark. To some extent, some even equate success with money. After all, having stable financial resources means that you can live life comfortably and on your own terms. But a lot dispute this by saying that money is not and should never be the measure of success. You should take higher importance on the relationships you build with other people and even the difference that you make in other’s life as true measures of success. Now, I understand that you may feel a little bit of guilt to admit that…

    If you were to be asked right now what your greatest fear is, what would it be? It would not come as a surprise if the fear of public speaking is the first thing that comes to your mind. Just the mere thought of speaking in front of a group or, even more daunting, a huge crowd of people peering their eyes directly at you is just enough to squeeze out all your sweat and send shivers because of sheer nervousness. Jerry Seinfeld has even joked about it saying that, “I read a thing that actually says that speaking in front of a crowd is considered the number one fear of the average person. I…

    A nation’s progress and socio-economic development is dependent on so many factors.

As residents of a country, we all want water flowing through our taps daily, we want to enjoy uninterrupted electricity, fast internet connectivity, and reliable telephones. Everyday, we ride in vehicles, reside in houses, and use roads. None of these could be possible without the technical know-how to execute them. What is Technical…

  • Not Broken; Just Piecing (Peace-ing) It All Together (Part 2)

    22 Jan 2015 | 5:48 am
    (To read part 1, please click here)I've been on this planet for 48 years now and over that course in time I've learned something very important…. We're all GREAT works in progress. Having said that,  I'd never admit to having it all figured out, because I don't. I'm constantly learning and subsequently growing and I like it that way. The past year, particularly, has been filled with tons of learning, growth, and change. As I mentioned in Part 1, I'm learning to feel my feelings through (rather than stuff them) which takes being more vulnerable than I've ever been…
  • When Fear and Vulnerability Butt Heads

    8 Jan 2015 | 5:28 am
    I'm a big believer that when something keeps showing up, I'm meant to sit and pay close attention because the Universe is trying to tell me something.  Over the last week the topic of vulnerability has poured itself some coffee and joined me for a cup multiple times. Like any good hostess, I've paid attention to what it was trying to tell me...rather than multi-tasking, not making eye-contact, and only half listening. What became apparent; recently I've been treating vulnerability as that "awful" word that implies weakness. Instead of putting into practice what I know to be true,…
  • Manifesting Cool Stuff

    30 Dec 2014 | 6:10 am
    For years I've created vision boards at the start of each new year. It's always been a fun process, picking out pictures and sayings that are connected with the things that I want to come to fruition during that year. While I'm still a big proponent of vision boards, especially for those of us who have troubles visualizing, I've found something that has more manifestation power. (At least for me.) Now, before the new year announces it's presence with all it's glitter and glitz, I choose a word. Just one word to set the tone , one that I can focus on throughout the year.  One that helps…
  • Negative Thoughts Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid

    10 Dec 2014 | 10:45 am
    Ever since I was about 10 years old, give or take a few, I've battled with negative thoughts. I didn't just battle them, I was terrified of them. Terrified that because I was having them, they would then come to fruition. My reaction to those thoughts had always been to push them away. To negate them. To plead with God, The Universe, and my spiritual team to ensure that they didn’t happen. When the Law Of Attraction hit my scene many years ago, I became even more concerned about the impact of my negative thoughts. "Thoughts become things." "What you think about you bring about." "Holy…

    What would we do if we felt 100% worthy?Would we move across the world, diverting our career path in favor of the unknown?  Would we leave our partner, finally searching for someone whom respects us the way we wish to be respected?  Or perhaps, we’d simply respect ourselves and fail to make excuses for anything.Every day gives us an abundance of choices to either move towards our goals or to move further away from them.  We are guided by our choices because they create the next outcome in our life and therefore it is important to take a step back from our thoughts and…

    Not everyone is whom they claim to be.What is the worst part about this?  Most people spend their time seemingly coaxing us into believing them - giving us a false sense of safety because, in those moments, they are being honest with themselves and us.What do I mean by this?  I mean that we all show others the side of ourselves we want them to see.  Quite simply, we do our best.  There’s nothing out of balance in this formula that we should point a finger of blame at.Sure, it can be heart-wrenchingly difficult to open ourselves up to someone else only to have their…

    Why is it that we place such prominence on the things we can physically or scientifically prove and so often discredit what make sense to us through our feelings and intuitive guidance?We live in a society that seems to be so sure – yet our problem is that we have no idea what we are sure of.  Many of us love to talk about making changes and what we dream of, but fail to follow through on the promises we make to our-selves.The truth is that we are often confused, hard-headed and the only thing I myself am sure of while writing this is that most of us need to make room for…

    Our worth is not dictated by the things we have to defend in life.  Rather, our worth is defined by the things we have no need to defend. So, why are we as human beings, being asked to defend our freedom?Why are we being forced to stand up for what is rightfully ours, and what can we do to make a move towards safety and unity?When we are facing the sort of wake up calls that we are as a world, it is important we address the issue rather than shy away from it. What is not spoken about is never resolved, and it is only when we face our issues when we will see these…

  • Some Things Are More Expendable Than Others

    26 Jan 2015 | 5:55 pm
    Some things that you buy are expendable by nature, it's just one of those things you have to accept. When you're a musician, particularly a drummer, you find this is overwhelmingly true. Drum heads break, guitar strings break, you lose guitar picks, you lose drum keys, cables go bad; you get the idea. Drum sticks are usually among the most expendable items for me, but every now and then you find one or two sticks that hang around without breaking for what seems like an egregiously long time. On
  • Dreading Pace Day

    22 Jan 2015 | 11:53 am
    I had been almost dreading my 4 mile run at target pace - 9 minute miles -for about a week before it came up on the schedule. My runs previously had all been about a minute per mile slower than what I was aiming for so I wasn't too sure how it was going to play out. Back in September or so, before I started having trouble with my hamstring, I had put in a couple 3 mile runs at about an 8:30 per mile pace, but that was a couple months ago and at a shorter distance. Usually I get amped before my

    I've personally been kicking my own ass with these exercises for a couple weeks now, so I can vouch for their ability to make you work hard. The nice thing is that they're all very scaleable to different levels and don't require any workout gear. There are countless circuits of similar exercises across the internet, but I worked this set up myself over some trial and error to get every major part of the body going in less than half an hour. I'm in reasonably good shape and I have no trouble
  • Beautiful Weekend Weather

    18 Jan 2015 | 10:38 am
    Saturdays are the long run days for the training schedule I'm using to get ready for a half marathon, so I had a nice 6 miler yesterday. For those, there isn't any target for the pace necessarily, but I kept my average below 10 minute miles. I've decided that if I can keep my miles under 10 minutes, I'll be satisfied, but if I get them down around 9 minutes, I'll be happy. Yesterday was another nice day for a good long run, too: not terribly cold for this time of year, not too windy, and the sun
  • Run In The Fog

    15 Jan 2015 | 7:56 pm
    I got up nice and early this morning to get a little 3 miler in. It's typically tough enough to get out of bed knowing I'm going to get outside and run in below 30 degree temperatures, but then I looked outside and saw how foggy it was and was even more discouraged. Fortunately, the fog burned off relatively quickly and I didn't have to feel quite so much like I was running through a half evaporated lake. It feels incredibly good to be back running 4-5 times a week. I had no idea how much I had

    Why do most people stop at the first hurdle? What happens when we are faced with obstacles and challenges? Some of us tried to jump, duck, dodge and some of us get hit in the face.There are people who have a passion or a vision for themselves, but they keep procrastinating. They are afraid.

    How can you overcome self-doubt? Doubt is related to fear. We have to do the things we are afraid of. Do the thing you fear the most. Plunge yourself into the moment.Many people think about overcoming self-doubt, but it rarely works. The more you think about your doubts, the more your doubts multiply and will never disappear.Think of thoughts as frozen actions. The heart has no fear until you think about it. Once you can move out of your thinking, out of your mind, out your head and get more into your body, then you can overcome self-doubt.A lot of our doubts are present because of what we…

    The Right Question

  • Make Your Own Basics

    James de Garmo
    17 Jan 2015 | 2:17 pm
    Cook it first, maybe? Or is that not a “basic”? If you’ve ever tried to master anything, you’ve learned the importance of “the basics”.  And there are a few things about the basics that it’s important to remember, re-learn, or learn the first time if you never discovered them. I’m going to share it a little anecdote here.  It concerns a monk who went to study martial arts.  There are many variations of this, but I’ll simplify it. For many months, the monk’s teacher told him to stand at a large bowl of water and slap the surface…

    Let’s face it, we’ve all done the “what if” scenarios, as in, “what if you had unlimited time and money”.  Where would you go, what would you do, what would change, what would be the same? As I cover in The Right Question, you don’t necessarily know that.  There are a lot of reasons for this, but the most important reason is that it simply isn’t real yet.  So there’s no reliable way to tell exactly what you’d do.  You probably think you know, and I’m sure you’ve thought about it, but you can’t know.  None of us really can.

If only every choice was this clear! By now you know I’ve read an endless string of self help books.  And all had at least one good thing to say.  Despite my mildly skeptical stance on self help, what I don’t say as often is that without it, a lot of people would be…

    We are basically comprised of two parts—big us and little us. Big us is our soul, spirit, higher self, or whatever you want to call it, and is directly connected to All That Is. This part of us is vibrating high and is pure love, happiness and all other sorts of warm fuzzies. It knows what a powerful creator we are, and that anything is possible for us. It knows our true purpose here is to create what we want, and simply be happy. Then there is little us, human us. This part is not totally connected to All That Is.
