If you let your background keep you from moving forward you will always be a background singer.

Creating Your Success Self-Concept

Some of the things I would suggest are to work on your self-esteem, take care of your health, and to give to others. Too many people have low self-esteem and it can impact all of us. People tend to behave in alignment with their self-concept or their beliefs about themselves and who they are. So here’s what I suggest: create a success self-concept for yourself. When you are the success you wish to be, based on how you define success, what would your behavior say is true of you in terms of your traits, qualities, and characteristics? Would it say… Read more.

One of the most magical facts about the universe is that there are no human duplicates. There never has been, nor will there be, another person like myself or any one else.

Making Art Out Of Life

Relationships have the brilliant power to inspire. To be inspired is to breathe in and out with the joyous certainty that you are loved for who you are. My favorite poet, Pablo Neruda, wrote metaphorically about the inspired individual in one section of his epic poem entitled “The Great Ocean”: The wave that you let loose, Arc of identity, exploded feather When it was unleashed, it was only foam, And without being wasted came back to be born. All of your strength returns to its beginning……. What was expelled by the action of your abundance, All that was left of… Read more.

A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.
If what you dream wasn’t already inside of you, how could you even dream it?

7 Ways to Slow Down and Live Full Today

Often times, our days get ahead of us and by the time night falls, we cannot even remember what we did or how the hours passed by so quickly. Here are some ways you can catch yourself from running blindly through your day like a tornado, missing everything, so that you can live fully and with intention.  Set intentions. This may sound silly, but the way in which you wake will determine much of your day. When you open your eyes (before anyone – human or companion animal – notices you are awake), take a few moments to pay attention to… Read more.

It is time to embrace the GREATNESS that is you!

The Power of TRY

My message to the world comes down to one word: try. In my lifetime, I have seen too many people afraid to try; too scared to try new things, to try new places, to try meeting new people. Watching them place needless limitations on themselves meant, sadly, watching human potential go wasted. Great ideas, solutions and relationships were never realized or even attempted because they were too reluctant to try. They feared what others may think, they doubted their own abilities or they feared what may or may not happen. Yet, trying can be liberating, empowering, and even exhilarating. Trying leads… Read more.

Loving ourselves is the beginning of all the love we can offer.

Let the Movies Teach You

The life we live is the life we each create for ourselves. So, if we want that life to be the one that we crave, then we had better pay attention to what we bring into being! As a practitioner of conscious creation (sometimes called the law of attraction), I’ve come to understand that the reality we experience arises from within each of us, based on the beliefs, thoughts and intents that we hold. So, to materialize the reality we want, we must pay attention to what we’re thinking and feeling in the first place. And, to achieve the results… Read more.

Love deeply and believe completely, speak truthfully and listen openly. Pray faithfully and act courageously, share passionately and sleep peacefully.
You do not have to be great at everything you do. The value comes from enjoying the experience. So, have fun and lighten up!
I have lost most of my sight, but I have a huge vision for my life and the world.
I believe people are not looking for the meaning of life, but rather are looking for meaning in their life.
You cannot take a future or a past breath. The breath is definitively always in the present.

Top 5 Ways to Truly Love Someone

The word “love” is one that is thrown around perhaps more often than it should be. We all want to share love with someone, to receive love, to feel loved. It’s a driving force in our lives. But, the term “love” has so many different versions that its meaning has become rather subjective. “If you do this, you love me…” So on and so forth. We find ways to measure someone’s love – and our own – and use that to build a case for or against them. Love is used as a guise for fear, insecurities, voids and deep-seeded issues… Read more.

The more we tune in to our intuition, the better off we are. It will never lead us astray. Trust it.
Tune into your heart, and explore your part!

Your Creative Compass

I am convinced that our hearts are made to heal. Instead of carrying around habitual suffering, our hearts can be cleaned of the hurt that we have lived through. Not only does this free us up to be more full of life, but the whole process can be enjoyable when we use artistic expression as our means of healing. My musical journey has been a simple practice that changes old pain into compassion and bliss. For me, songwriting has been a discipline that I call cardio spelunking. It is a deep dark adventure to retrieve bright treasure, and it would… Read more.
