The Joys of Discomfort

One of the greatest words I have ever discovered and one of the main contributing factors to my personal growth is discomfort. The opposite of discomfort is contentment, which in many ways can be the “killer of dreams and aspirations,” because it somehow convinces you that you have arrived in a “safe place” and you should have enough common sense to remain there. I was at that place of contentment in my life. In fact it was more like I had decided to just accept the unfortunate cards life had handed me. I was a high school dropout, failed recording artist,… Read more.

Stop Waiting for It to Get Easier

I learned 13 years ago how precious life is, and how short it can be, when I was diagnosed with melanoma. Having cancer was a defining moment in my life and I realized that that no matter what goals and dreams I had – the time to make them happen was now.  I still run my life and operate my various businesses with that same sense of urgency. As a coach to entrepreneurs and small business owners, I hear about ideas for growth a lot. And whether the idea is based on a new product, a new or improved service,… 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.

The Hidden Secret of Success

You may be familiar with Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, considered by many to be the precursor to the psychology of success programs we have today. Andrew Carnegie commissioned Hill to find out why some people are successful and others who work just as hard are not. Carnegie introduced Hill to the most successful men in the world and gave him the opportunity to question them regarding their philosophy for business and life. Hill looked for the things that made these people different from the average working person. He shares many ideas and concepts in the book but one is at the hub:… Read more.

Become a Realistic Idealist

I’ll confess that I’m an idealist at heart. I feel shy admitting this because idealism has a pretty bad reputation. Most of us think of idealists as people who dream big dreams but who don’t know how to make things happen. Idealists are known for being impractical and naive. They often see the world as they would like it to be, not as it really is. But I’d like to make the case for a specific kind of idealism: Realistic Idealism. Before I get to that, I’ll say with absolute conviction that anything great that has ever been accomplished has… Read more.

Sometimes you just have to jump into things instead of dwelling or meditating on them for days on end, because hesitation may result in a missed once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Are You Creating the Future You Want?

At this very moment, you are creating your future. Some people believe that life just happens and that there is nothing they can do about it. Don’t make this mistake. You will limit the abundance that you are meant to have in your life. There are bad things that happen and there are circumstances that cannot be changed. However, in every situation, you can make choices. If you truly want to live a good, authentic and rewarding life, you have to internalize the fact that it is your daily choices that decide how your life will turn out. Each minute… Read more.

Be a Mentor and have Infinite Impact

Life today can provide us with many new challenges that can be difficult to work through. For some, especially youth who lack experience relating and responding to these situations, life’s challenges can bring with them even greater feelings of emotional distress. What I have learned in life is that we each have the power as mentors to help others face challenges and come out stronger, wiser and more confident. If you are sharing your life experiences with the hope that you are providing guidance to another, you are being a mentor! You are positively impacting the life of someone else. You possess mentoring capabilities… Read more.
