5 Steps to Take Action

Take Action! So many of us wait for things to be perfectly aligned before we take action. I’m not talking about following a specific timeline that gives you the necessary steps to reach your goal. I’m referring to those who wait for things to be aligned just right before they make a move. We wait for the perfect time to get married. The perfect time to own a home. The right time to have children. The right time to start a business. The right time to take a family vacation. The right time to make a business decision. The right… Read more.

Are You Ready to Embrace Adversity?

Live your life in such a manner that it makes yesterday jealous. Always seeking, always hungry, always yearning for greatness. Attach a purpose to all that you do, understanding that it is on purpose that you are here. Never take for granted this purpose, by remaining forever grateful.

How to Transition From Cancer to Calm

In 2013, our dreamy life changed dramatically when my husband’s barber asked, “What’s that on your neck?” David saw three doctors and had six procedures by the time we heard the five words that rocked our world, “You have stage IV cancer.” The lump protruding from his neck was a malignant growth that had metastasized from the base of his tongue. Four days prior, our thirteen-year-old son was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. “What’s happening to our family?” I thought desperately, trying to make sense of it. Life was going along nicely, when suddenly our roles changed: husband and son became… Read more.

5 Ways You Can Stand Up to Challenges

I started writing inspirational poetry for people 30 years ago. It wasn’t because I was a master of the English language; it was because I heard the poems when people would tell me about things in their lives. I didn’t pay much attention to it at first. But after the first hundred you start to notice that there’s something more going on. Over the years I’ve written poems for people facing just about every challenge imaginable. I’ve seen the same themes repeat themselves. For anyone facing challenge in their life, here are 5 things I’ve found to be true for… Read more.

Invite the Lightning Bolt of Change into Your Life

There is a moment when the dirt and the dust rises up in your life, maybe it is abuse, lack of money, lack of kindness, whatever it is. There is a turning point when you stand still in time. Everything stops. It is very quiet. You say, this is going to change. You become a radical demand for change in your life, and in that moment, the world shifts. It is a glorious shift into the light when you know you’re knowing, again. When you stand in the brightness of you. This is you that everyone else always knew and you… Read more.

Challenge is nothing more than the seed of opportunity.
Persistence in the face of adversity prevents defeat.
The only reason we want to understand our problems is because we are planning to have them again.

Achieving Your Potential, Despite Adversity

Life is an adventure, a journey through many valleys with many mountains to climb. You’re going to get tired, you’re going to be hungry, you’re going to feel lost. Some nights will be cold and filled with scary things. Some days will be long, hot and without comfort. Take the time, even when it’s hard, especially when you don’t feel like it, to stop and look back to see how far you have come. Look at your life in awe for what you have accomplished and know that you have the ability, the grace and the wisdom to continue moving… Read more.

Choosing Your Response to Challenges

We all inevitably face challenges in life. Situations that rock us to the core and challenge us to keep moving forward. I ask YOU the question, “If tomorrow wasn’t promised, what would you do for today?” My mother’s death, 11 days before my eighth birthday, left a cavernous hole in my universe. Yet though my mother passed away all those years ago, not a single day goes by without the reminder that she helped me become the man that I am today. Her strength, her love, her work ethic and her legacy live on through me, through the family I… Read more.

A Blessing in Disguise

I have always had a fondness for inspiring legends or tales that have a nugget of wisdom attached. I recall a Chinese tale from Huai Nanzi about an old man who lost a horse. This fable seems very relevant in today’s world: One night the horse broke out of its pen and ran away. The man’s son cried, “Father, our prized horse has run away! How could this happen? This must be the worst day of our lives!” The father smiled and calmly replied, “Is that so? Are you so certain?” Shortly after the horse came back and along with… Read more.

Share Your Gifts to Overcome Adversity

Over the past few years, every one of us has been through some form of adversity. In fact, many of us have been hit by more than one serious, disruptive challenge. In this “perfect storm”, everything that we have come to trust and believe about ourselves and our lives has come under some form of attack. Whether it is an illness, loss of job, erosion of wealth, divorce, or a death in the family, it seems as though the path on our journey has gotten a little more difficult. As we stand here looking into the future, looking for answers,… Read more.

Rehab for the Soul

Enjoy the brilliance of this world while you can, but more importantly learn to understand this world’s limitation. The world is an amazing and inspiring place, but only for those who have the patience and the perseverance to truly understand the greatness behind the tests we face during our lives. Seeking to skip the struggle, is seeking to skip the meaning. In my experience, our lives have been conceived so that we may pull ourselves out of our old ways of being. It works to abolish these older versions of ourselves so that we may live a more inspired existence,… Read more.
