Out With The Bad, In With The Good

Out With The Bad, In With The Good
Likely the greatest challenge we will ever face in life rests between our ears.  Overcoming the voice in our head that so often speaks counter to what we are looking to achieve and what direction we hope to move towards is the nemesis of growth.  It really is a basic formula of mathematics.  The more information that ...

The Two Most Important Days In Life

The Two Most Important Days
There occasionally are ways of looking at life that provide the answers to the great questions that many of us search for.  These ideas or "perspectives" provide insight so clear and concise that they can form the foundation of our philosophy. I recall years ago hearing a statement from Jim Rohn that encapsulated the entire proposition of personal growth.  He ...

Shelter From The Storm

The Shelter From The Storm
Twenty minutes ago I was sitting on the counter in the bathroom upstairs talking with and listening to a great Cinderella story from my 5-year-old daughter Faith who was in the tub and we were talking about the movie frozen.  Directly over the bath is a large skylight. Looking up in anticipation she said, “When will it be winter daddy?  "Can ...

Find Your Happy Place and Stay There

Find Your Happy Place and Stay There
We all want to just be happy. To have that euphoric feeling pulse through out body and mind. To replace stress and fear and doubt with the feeling of being happy.   Everything we do is driven to accomplish that simple human emotion. Freud purported that everything we do and everything that drives us is related in some way to sex. That ...

The Line Is Shorter

The line is shorter
The most damaging refrain we all hear throughout life is "Are we there yet"? It's a voice we begin hearing as a child that becomes progressively louder throughout life. The persistence necessary to continue on with the activity that will see our goal come to fruition is challenged at every corner. The truth is that it is just a voice. Just a thought ...

The Days We Get Paid For

The days we get paid for
Here is an absolute in life. The road is never flat. Often what stops us from winning or succeeding are the bumps along the way. The obstacles, roadblocks, detours and just downright challenges that give us pause to ask, "Can I really get over or around or through this and keep going?" If the answer is "I don't think so&...

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 ...
