Take Risks, Make Choices, Create Change

If I could leave one piece of wisdom to the people on this planet before I go it would be that we always have a choice. We have a choice of not only what we put in our mouths for nutrition but also what we put in our minds and how we live our life. So much emphasis is placed on exercise and physical health, and that is indeed important. But we have to remember our emotional/spiritual health as well. We must choose to only accept positive thoughts, positive self talk, and remember with every exhale we have the ability…

How You Can Start Living Authentically

Over the course of my life I have been exploring parenting and other relationships and have found one thing to be of utmost importance, authenticity. What I mean by this is living what you think and believe. In order to do this you have to know what that is, and how it looks to you. There are two exercises which can help every person figure this out. The first is to write the eulogy you would like given about you, then live your life accordingly. The second is to write down your top ten values. Honesty, for instance. Then examine…

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,…

Don’t Sabotage Your Attitude

Superstitions are irrational beliefs - beliefs that are held in spite of evidence to the contrary. Do you carry the daily burden of irrational beliefs and/or earlier life transgressions that work to sabotage your good efforts and attitude? Are you going through difficult times with family members in rehab or with you personally with your addictions, diseases and problems? In my own life I have seen (and participated in) failed relationships, drug addiction and errant business ventures. When these things happen, it is easy to let these "failures" weigh heavily upon your shoulders. Some go so far as to willingly…

5 Ideas To Change How You See The World

1. All that really exists is the word YES. The universe is set up on a YES system, so whatever you choose to surround yourself with, you will continue to get more of. The universe just tracks all of your personal expressions and choices in life. There are no throw-away moments. Choose your words, actions and thoughts consciously. Choose your friends, partners and media influences wisely, because everything coming from us, and everything coming at us, profoundly affects our ability to be as intelligent and balanced as we want to be. 2. Change doesn't happen with the snap of your…

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…

Inner Brilliance and Reaching our Full Potential

Nearly five years ago, I went through a period of deep self-discovery. I was confused about who I was, where my life was going, and how I could ultimately make an impact. You see, through that process I realized that everyone wants to discover their inner brilliance. And with that inner brilliance, they want to make a difference. They want to make an impact on the world. Personally, I discovered that my purpose in life is to empower other people. And now, for the past several years, I’ve been able to fulfill that purpose through my leadership coaching, writing, and…

Sink Deeply into Bliss

Sometimes life is hard but it can still be filled with joy and happiness. You may not always get what you think you want, but when you grow older and look back on your life, you will see that you got what you needed. The pieces will begin to slip together in an awe-inspiring manner. While we all strive to find happiness, we must also accept that there is a natural ebb and flow to it and that when we experience hard times, those trials allow us to experience more profound joy. We cannot have one without the other, so…
