Build Your Own Dream

March 2, 2013…

It's your life. Yours. You get one.

With this being true, why in the world would you ever want to waste time living someone else's goals or dreams? Why would you want to follow in someone else's footsteps?

It Always Seems Impossible At First...

March 1, 2013…

It ALWAYS seems impossible at first.

Looking for a new job. Starting a new career. Building a new relationship. Anytime the word "new" is attached to an idea, some will just think "impossible."

When One Door Closes...

February 28, 2013…

"When one door closes another opens; but we often look so long and regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the one that opens
for us." - Alexander Graham Bell

Think Before You Say "No"

February 27, 2013…

Are you running scared from a new opportunity? Has a new possibility shown up in your life, and you are deciding to let it pass thinking you're not ready...that later will be better?

It's my experience that unique, risk-taking, step-out-of-the-comfort zone amazing opportunities never come around twice.

Our Thoughts and Feelings Are a Real Life Magnet

February 26, 2013…

What kind of thoughts are you thinking? What kind of emotions are you feeling? I am a big believer that we absolutely become what we think and feel.

Do you feel successful…or unsuccessful? Do you feel alive with a desire to take risk…or fearful of taking any kind of chance? Do you feel like you attract money…or do you feel unlucky with money?

Which Will You Choose?

February 25, 2013…

Today is NOT just another day. It's unique in it's history…and it could be unique in it's opportunity.

Life Is Too Short To Stay Stuck

February 24, 2013…

Staying in a job you hate or a relationship that is unedifying because you are afraid to start again is understandable. We all feel the fear of starting over in various degrees. Nonetheless, choosing to stay in a lousy situation is a lousy idea.

Transitions Are Inevitable

February 23, 2013…

One thing you can surely count on in life is the need to adopt to transitions. Jobs, relationships, family, moves, health, is full of then, and there is very little that can be done to stop them from happening. Sure, you can stay in the same home forever...and never leave your job or marriage, but still, not all transitions are avoidable.

No matter how hard you try.

The Human Spirit Has a Never-Ending "Reserve Tank"

February 22, 2013…

Sure, it's hard to get up again after life kicks your tail to the floor. There's no doubt about it. I've been knocked down 100x, and I know what it feels like to have no "juice" left in my "desire tank."

Looking for a Dramatic Change in Life...Overnight?

February 21, 2013…

Looking for a dramatic change in life and expecting it immediately?

That may be possible…but just not realistic.

It's impossible to go from "ice cold" to "red hot" overnight. I wouldn't suggest that you expect it. What you can expect, however, is that you can grow to "red hot" if you hold yourself accountable to taking at least one baby step forward each day.
