Belief, Fear and Success

Do you ever have one of those mornings when you wake up scared? Scared that you don’t know how you’re going to do something that needs to be done? I think we all share this from time to time. That feeling of uncertainty, that fear of the unknown, that discomfort with stepping outside of the box we’ve been living in for so long. We say we want change and that we want to play a bigger game. Well, along with that comes unknown territory, and along with that comes fear and trepidation. It’s our body’s survival mechanism kicking in to… Read more.

Just Getting Started

Okay, call me an optimist, but at age 60, I am just getting started. I still have much to learn. However, as I look back, my most important learning has come through my spiritual experiences. At age 19, I first learned meditation. I spent 22 years in the ashram (residential learning facility) with famous spiritual master from India, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, guru of the Beatles and of Deepak Chopra. And I spent another 20 years studying and teaching New Thought. When I was under the tutelage of Maharishi, I used to meditate from 5 to 20 hours per day. I… Read more.

Want More Friends? Be One First

A few days ago I had a new contact on Twitter send me an @ message asking how he could increase his number of friends. I found it interesting that his message was sent to me in all capital letters like he was shouting at me. It read, ” I NEED HELP HOW CAN I GET MORE FOLLOWERS”. I took the time and politely wrote several 140 character private messages back to him and recommended that he follow the folks listed as Twitterati on AllTop.com, that he comment on the blogs of the biggies listed in the Technorati top 100,… Read more.

Be The Change

Yesterday our 44th president was sworn into office. Regardless of who you may have voted for, I think we would all agree that something’s going on in America. The air is abuzz with possibility and hope. For me, this is the first time I’ve witnessed people come together regardless of age, background, ethnicity, political party, gender or economic diversity. It’s a beautiful time of hope for the future. For so long many of us have complained about the way things are, but did little to improve the situation. But things are changing. There’s a new energy building. Everyday people are… Read more.

Gary Vaynerchuk Labels Global Hug Tour “Freakin Awesome!”

Yesterday I had the honor of speaking to Gary Vaynerchuk in reference to the Global Hug Tour. I’m at the Affiliate Summit in Las Vegas and Gary was the keynote speaker (check out 44:25 on the video link). In a room of thousands, during the Q&A section after his presentation, I briefly explained the Global Hug Tour and asked him for his recommendation on how to best share our story with the world. Gary’s thought the idea was “freakin awesome!” and said he’d personally hug everyone in the room. He went on to say that in order to get the… Read more.

Lessons from a Mountain Lion

Yesterday on the drive home from Nashville, across the prairies of Kansas and Eastern Colorado, hawks were my constant companions throughout the drive. Today, while sitting down to write some text for our Global Hug Tour, I looked out the window and saw a huge mountain lion about 40′ away from our deck! We live in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, in Boulder, CO and although mountain lions live here, we’ve never seen one at our home. Seems Mother Nature is talking to me lately and I’m now listening. The past few weeks I’ve been swamped with the details… Read more.
