Quiet Excellence

Quiet Excellence
The noise of the world is very loud most times. Shouting of this accomplishment or paying undue homage to the supposition of an activity yet to actually take place. One morning I was provided with a very unique perspective into this from the side of quiet. I spoke this morning to the administrative staff at the cities largest rehab center. Walking into the facility provided a very visual, ...

The Lazy Man's answer to success

The Lazy Man's Answer To Success
I have come to know absolutes in this business of personal growth over the years. I know absolutely that we were all born perfect. I know absolutely that the challenges we may face on our journey relate to the experiences we have had and conversely the affect they have on our belief system. I know absolutely that any doubt can be changed into a ...

Change Happens At The Speed Of Life

Change Happens At The Speed Of Life
Change is like the elusive rainbow. We know they exist but it's all but impossible to watch one form. In a group coaching session we were talking about one component from the program, which is what I call "Current Moment Consciousness" or improving the ability to focus. I commented that if I were a child today I would likely have ...

DON’T HAVE A PLAN “B”

Don't Have A Plan
Oh, how often we allow ourselves to get faked out into settling for less than we want. Less than we deserve. I spoke with a client who is going through a challenge. We all go through them. During the conversation about this challenge it was brought up that what had been defined as their goal would now likely have to change as a result of the situation. ...

IT’S NOT ABOUT THE STUFF

It's Not About The Stuff
A client told me of a fascinating story that left me thinking a great deal today about our connection to stuff. The story was about a man in the news who has backpacked around the world for the past 10 years. He spent most of his time travelling around third world countries. Amazing in itself and you are likely thinking that this is a great example ...

I finally got around to booking a haircut. While waiting my turn I thumbed through a magazine that was there in a stand. I am always amazed that every magazine in hair salons are for women only. For all the men like me who enter these hallowed vestiges of style, it makes us feel like secret agents on a mission of espionage, looking to spirit back ...

What We Take In

What We Take In
During seminars and coaching sessions I often ask clients if they allow their children to watch violent video games or movies. The resounding answer is "no, of course not". When pressed for their rationale, I normally hear back, "Because it will affect them in some way. It could affect their behavior". Sound reasoning and realistic logic. Amazing then considering this that we ...

Anything Is Possible When You Have Faith
My little girl will turn 6 in the spring. Amazing how time marches on.  Last week and I was looking through pictures and mementos that have gathered along the way. Going through everything I cam across this perspective that was written 5 years ago and wanted to share it with you. Here it is.  
We often reflect on the perceived challenges in ...

Why Not?

Why Not?
I sat down one evening to work on creating an edition of "Perspectives". It is a fascinating process everyday to just allow the day to happen and trust that an event of the day will inspire me enough to want to write about it and share it with you. I read a quote that caused a movie to play back in my mind from a very ...

The Lessons Of Failure

The Lessons Of Failure
An unfortunate aspect of society is that we are trained to believe that to fail is to, well fail.  Not true.  All you need do is look at every aspect of your life and you will see that failure is the very reason you have accomplished anything.  Failure to grasp an object when we were very small led to incredible determination to persist ...
