Live As If It Were Impossible to Fail

Here’s what I’ve learned in 27 years… Family is everything. It is so important that no matter what you do or where you go, keep family at the forefront. In your dealings with all, strive to be the greatest provider of Value – shun the quick profit and maintain integrity. This will bring you much honour, respect and lasting prosperity. There are so many ways in which we are often expected to govern our lives – some of these ways work and make sense; others do not work and do not make sense. The trick is to find the way… Read more.

Overcoming Fear

Fear is a very real emotion that can render us powerless. It can make us choose what we believe will keep us safe, even when the opposite is true. It can make us believe that we can’t do it, we are wrong, the cost is too high, the path ahead too difficult. But every time you choose fear, you lose sight of your highest aspirations and fall prey to being controlled by your history instead of rising to the future you desire and deserve.

En-courage Courage!

If there is one piece of advice I would offer you, it’s this: never – and I despise using absolute words like “never” – never stop encouraging yourself and others in the pursuit of worthy goals. This advice is inspired by the definition of the word encouragement, which is “to give hope and confidence to.” Can you imagine what this world would look like if we were constantly infusing others with hope and confidence? What would this world look like if EVERYONE was walking around with hope and confidence – despite the challenges they face in life? With successful strategies, always… Read more.

Finding Serenity

If you’ve read any of my books, you’ve read about the “Serenity Prayer.” This is a simple prayer, first used by Reinhold Niebuhr around 1934 and later given, by him, to Bill Wilson for use in Alcoholics Anonymous. This simple prayer became one of the “tools” that saved my life more than once when I was in the early days of my recovery and trying to piece my life back to together. I would recite it every day as a way to keep things in perspective and it has been a great help to me since. There are many times in our life when… Read more.

Courage is Heart: 5 Daily Reminders for Women

Most of the time we think courage is a big emotion we muster up in times of need, when the clouds descend and life collapses around us with loud booming noises. But often, the opposite is true. Sometimes it is the quietest of moments, when we can barely hear our own heart speaking, that require the most courage. We are taught that courage is having the heart of a lion – but a lion doesn’t always roar. Watch carefully; each move a lion makes is calculated and graceful. In fact, a lion is still for a good portion of time… Read more.

Compassion, love, courage, patience, kindness, forgiveness and faith. These are basic tenants found in most philosophies, spiritual practices and religions globally. These are also answers to many of the pains that you may experience. Find out the power of these principles through practice. It seems that there is always an opportunity to express one if not all of these in any given situation.

The Courage To Follow Your Heart

During my 61 years on this earth, I have learned that living life successfully requires great courage and risk. While I think I always knew this simple truth, I didn’t find the courage to follow my dreams until I was 48. And I have never looked back! My life today reflects the dreams that I had 50 years ago, when I was 11 years old. I wouldn’t have the life I have today had I not taken the risk–learning from the turtle that you only make progress when you stick your neck out. We are continually faced with great opportunities… Read more.

5 Tips to Improve Your Life

#1: A lack of empathy creates most of the world’s problems. When you have empathy for yourself, you’re able to have it for other people. Without empathy, we become products of violence, addiction, deceit, disease, and heartbreak. Everything in life is about relationships – your relationship with yourself, others, and a higher power. The healing and nurturing you do with yourself (often with the help of a trained professional) directly reflects the love you give and receive from others. #2: You create your own reality. If you can see it in your mind, you can create it in physical reality!… Read more.

To attain the next level, we must dig deep to find what holds us back. And have the courage to face and fix what we find.
