Being grateful is just as important as breathing. Every human alive right now is breathing, but the act of breathing alone does not make for a happy, fulfilled person. It’s unfortunate how many people allow for their fear-ridden thoughts to control their lives and reality, when really ALL of us have the power to take back our mind and direct our energy in a positive way that serves our life and those around us. Gratitude is a major step in unwinding our negative mental habits. If a person lives their entire life not realizing how precious, miraculous and unique this life… Read more.

I help creative, entrepreneurial, freedom-seekers who are on a seriously awesome mission to share their gifts, serve the world and build a meaningful business that aligns with their passions to get clear, intentional & focused so they can create what they actually want in life.
I have consciously crafted my freedom lifestyle to align with everything I love most. I live in paradise on a small island with my wife and I am actively pursuing my life-long dream of playing professional golf. The way I fund my lifestyle is by creating transformatonial eCourses which have reached people in 27+ countries, producing comedy + music marketing videos with my best friends in my home studio and by coaching leaders and world-changers to rock their gifts and (#GSD) Get Shit Done while having fun!

By falling in love with life, we fall in love with ourselves (and visa versa). When we fall in love with ourselves we can access our true potential because we become willing to give ourselves the experiences, practices and beliefs that support us to succeed AND the self acceptance to get back up when we fail. If we don’t fall in love with life and ourselves, then we fall into the perpetual wheel of self sabotage, struggle and suffering. How I support people (starting with myself) to love life: I establish powerful, self-serving daily practices. Our habits make us who we become. Be… Read more.
Sometimes my fears get so intense. It’s like my heart is in a vice grip and it’s squeezing all of the optimism and positivity out of me. Fortunately this has happened enough times over my lifetime to know that those fears are not me. They are not my truth. They are seeds that were planted at one point or another and I choose not to give them my power any longer. This is why I celebrate my fears and the anxiety that tends to come with them. Because when it’s on the surface, in my face and surging through my… Read more.
I doubt myself, I trust myself. The vision is clear, then I’m in the fog. I feel powerful and then the next moment I feel like nothing. These are the cycles I go through again and again as I work towards the vision I want for my life and this world. Because I’m usually happy people get the impression that I don’t struggle or have difficulties. This couldn’t be anywhere farther from the truth. I live my life between the space of who I just was and who I am choosing to become. This practice of constantly stretching myself makes for a… Read more.
The death of Robin Williams this week has come as a great surprise. Who would of thought that such a brilliant comedian, humanitarian, loving, gentle and successful person could be in so much pain? The death of Robin has certainly caused me to look more deeply into my own patterns and the way I mask my own suffering through comedy and smiley faces. To the public, I am sure I come across as always being positive, but this is far from the truth. Watching and supporting my wife Celeste grieve the loss of her father after he committed suicide three… Read more.
Right now I want to share the success strategies I have followed to reach tens of thousands of people with my audio meditations, facilitate more than 400 meditation workshops, have hundreds of my articles published and create a business out of my greatest passions in life. I’ll give you a hint: I didn’t just “manifest it” like some law of attraction junkies believe happens to people who are living their dreams. I do want to address the topic of “manifesting” for a moment. I hear so many new age type people talking about manifesting their visions. But if you ask most… Read more.
Golf is first and foremost one of my paths to self- mastery. I don’t mean mastery as in being the best in the world or striving to be perfect, I mean mastery by being my best each shot and each moment. I know I am completely capable of shooting under par every time I step onto the golf course. When I don’t, I have the opportunity to look more closely at myself. Was it fear, underlying emotions, mental blocks, lack of presence or something to do with my body that stopped me? How can I improve next time? Each new round… Read more.
Are you suffering from “The Secret Syndrome”? You watched The Secret a decade ago, you’ve been visualizing what you want and now ten years have gone by and you’re still pretty much in the same place as you were then — minus a few free cups of coffee? Here are some ‘Secrets’ I have learned through the process of breathing life into many of my dreams. Turn these recommendations into habitual ways of being and I guarantee you will experience some tremendous magic bless your path. 1) A Clear Vision: Without a clear vision of what you want, how can you create the reality… Read more.
“I struggle with meditation, my mind is always going. How can I get to that place where I have no thoughts?” ~ Martin, Tulsa, OK Forget about stopping your mind and all those racing thoughts. For me, my meditation practice serves the magical purpose of celebrating my life. It is the opportunity for me to get fully present with the 60 trillion+ cells twinkling inside of me and simply be with my breath. Instead of trying to shut your thoughts off, distract or entertain your mind in a positive way by giving it a technique to focus on. For… Read more.
By Brad Morris. A Vision Quest is a turning point or right of passage for One to find themselves, their Spiritual direction or path in Life. And I tell yah, my life has been a non-stop, action packed, Vision Quest adventure these last 8+ years! I have been on a conquest to face my fears, know Myself and share my ultimate gifts with the world. Through walking my path clumsily in the darkness of the unknown, I have slipped, fell, hurt myself and got up again and again. I have fallen to my knees in tears, praying for an answer,… Read more.
Breathe in the Adventure of Life! Do not waste a single precious day or moment. Unplug from your technology, get off of Facebook and LIVE. Become the channel for Life to be expressed through you.

Show those self judgements that tell you can’t do it, that you CAN! This life will come and go quickly which means we need to Live Here Now. Do not let… Read more.
Living the GratiDude Way means remembering the power of “thank you.” In a world of duality, we are given only two choices really… we can either be grateful, or we can be ungrateful. Everything in life is a matter of perception. We are the ones who give each moment the power to be “good” or “bad,” we make the conscious choice of labeling it one or the other at the time of its conception. When we focus on what’s going wrong and what’s missing from our lives, we miss all the incredible things that we have to be grateful for…. Read more.
