We Believe That Not All Choices...

We believe that not all choices......are created equal. Here is an interesting fact to consider. Human beings are the only species on this entire earth that has the capacity to limit our potential. You can't ask a tree to grow to half of its size. You can't ask an ant to limit its activity in search of food and shelter. Because of the genetic code they know no other way. ...

The 74-minute Hour Does Not Exist

The 74-minute Hour Does Not ExistHere is a question that begs asking. "How much of your work day feels rushed and out of control?" If you are in the majority your answer is "most of it". Here is something we hear said in public over and over and no doubt hear ourselves voice this silently as well. "There are just not enough hours in the day". The truth is ...

What If You Had This?

Confidence that is. I had the chance to attend a presentation on financial planning by one of the top in the field. The speaker was fascinating and along with a number of interesting points I took away, the most lasting impression was just him. His presence. His command of the room. Here is what was at the root of all of this and I believe the most powerful attribute he brings ...

Find Your Other Soul Mate

Find Your Other Soul MateThe process of finding love is perhaps the least understood and blissfully so. This is an area where I pray science will not prod, poke and distil down the emotional and biological components and unseen forces of energy involved into a test-tube so we can then take a pill or wear a patch to find true love. Fascinating really when you consider that at this moment ...

The Voice of Intuition

The Voice of Intuition Women are said to have it. Intuition that is. While genetic maternal instincts may in fact hone this skill sharper than men, there is no question that we all have it. Here is what intuition or "intuitive thought" almost always is. Right. What happens most times is that in that microscopic gap between correct thought and the intrusion of engrained psychological excuses, we too often lose the ...

Sometimes you have to stop...

Sometimes you have to stop... ...but rarely. I have discussed at great length before that ultimately what happens to negate the achievement of a goal is that we stop. We discontinue the activity that was moving us forward. The goal may be to finish a presentation or to reach the top in our field or to build a financial wall around our family that nothing can get through. All goals are ...

The Smallest Acts

The Smallest ActsFreud once surmised that everything we do in life is based upon sexuality. All that we do he mused was entirely driven by sexual urges. I believe it is much more simplistic than that. I believe that all human action and interaction is based upon 11 muscles in the face. The muscles that make us smile. All activity and all endeavours in life have the desired end result of ...

Faith And Doubt

Faith And Doubt The cornerstone of all personal and professional growth comes down to this. Belief or doubt. Whatever you believe you are good at generally turns out well. Whatever you doubt generally does not turn out so well. "I really don't think I am a good public speaker and in fact I'm afraid of it" says the man; and so the speech goes poorly, stuttering and stammering and losing his ...

The 95 Factor Of Life

The answer is so much more than you realize. The question really for us all is what are we doing with what we have been given? Most of what happens in our ...

I'm Becoming My Parents

Im Becoming My ParentsWe have all heard this adage in life. We tend to hear it more and the notion becomes more apparent after we get married, have our own children and then begin to hear statements come out of our own mouths that we heard growing up from our parents. I was listening to a commercial on the radio today that was talking about hockey and the voice said, "...
