We are all unique, have our own strengths and skills, but what good is it if all we can do is accept our diversity? What we really need to do is not only accept and appreciate our differences but leverage our diversity.

6 Straightforward Tips for a Better Life

There will be many people you meet in this life that do not like you; don’t be one of them. Place your concern on the opinion of the person you see most – YOU. You owe it to yourself and the Universe to make peace with whatever is causing you pain. Be kind, forgiving, and patient. Know that you deserve — and are worthy — of your own love and respect. When you believe this with every ounce of your being, everything else will fall into place. There is a lot of negativity in this world; don’t let it bring… Read more.

The circumstances of your life do not describe and can not constrain the greatness of your soul.

Stopping the War Against Yourself

On a daily basis, I pause, put my hand on my chest and whisper, “I will not make war against my own heart.” I have many opportunities to practice, as I make many mistakes. Each time, I want to jump on myself. Each time, I choose: do I judge myself or let it go? This is an act of courage for me, as it goes against ingrained habits of beating myself up. It’s an opening, an embracing of all of life; an embracing of all of me. It is unconditional love. It’s not easy. The mind loves to judge. To… Read more.

Never before in the history of the universe have you existed and when you are gone YOU will never repeat. That’s how important you are.
Love everything about yourself, knowing you are the sum of all of your parts.

Energize Your Life With Self Awareness

You are not diminished by your pain. Your spirituality is not measured by the presence or absence of difficulty in your life. Challenge is not a punishment or a reward. It is not a reflection of your value to the world; it is a reflection of your choice to grow and learn and make mistakes. Although your thoughts and attitudes attract and create your life, you are not your thoughts. “Your thoughts control your experience of reality. But your thoughts cannot affect, or change, or control, or even touch who you are.”~ Paul Williams, Remember Your Essence Remembering your essence will… Read more.

You already are the magnificence that you seek.
This scenery pales in comparison to YOUR magnificence!

You Can Do No Wrong

Let go of being connected to the results. Just do and be because you are inspired and passionate about what you are doing regardless of anyone else. This is how you know if you are fulfilling your soul’s purpose. The most important task is to love and accept yourself. You always receive the answers to your questions. It just might not be what you were expecting. Life is like a treasure hunt. Half of the fun is figuring out the clues and overcoming the challenges to finally get to the treasure. It wouldn’t be the same if someone just handed… Read more.

Remembering What You’ve Learned

Do not wait to be extraordinary before you accomplish the extraordinary. The greatest lessons and wisdom that we receive in our lives can often come from those who did not know we were watching and listening. An elderly woman born in the late 1890s who was blind and in her 90s when I met her, told me that she understood what I was going through in my marriage because she had gone through the same 70 years prior… My mother, who shared her wisdom with me until the day she died, never knew that her wisdom would live on long… Read more.

Making the World a Better Place

Understand that YOU were born into this world to make a difference by giving back to others in some way. When you share your gifts with the world, you begin to receive the most amazing gifts in return with a more fulfilled and enriched life. You’ll know when this commitment of giving back feels right because you will truly be living and breathing your own legacy… yes, LIVING your legacy… not leaving it behind when you exit the planet. If you have ever been mentored, guided or coached by someone in any way, you understand the feeling of being supported by… Read more.

What You Need To Know About Spirit

You are loved and held safe beyond anything you can imagine. As you live your life, know that even when everything seems like it’s falling apart, the whole world is in chaos and you can’t make sense of any of it – you are loved, and you are safe. You are with Spirit. You are a light in the world, a light of infinite joy that can never be put out or hidden. You are a blessing born from the heart of Spirit, and so long as you remember that you can and will find peace in any situation. As… Read more.

We all have greatness in our ‘hardware’ – we all signed up for greatness when we came into this life and we are simply learning to awaken it in one another.

People Matter – Including YOU!

People matter. Within the circle of your existence, you have been given a “tribe” consisting of your family, your friends, your irritating neighbor whose dog barks 24/7, and the co-worker who borrows your “Best Person Alive!” coffee cup and leaves saliva marks on the lip. Because of your unique relationship with each of these people, only you can reach them in the way you were designed to do so, and while yes, there are other neighbors who can smile stiffly at yours, there is no one who can take your place in the family setting, or within your friends’ hearts….

To better see, the eyes do not expand, they contract: these days are darker but a thousand fold the light they extract.
Know that deep inside, you are resilient, brave, and so much stronger and more powerful than your fears.

Dare to Dream

I am sitting in a self-development workshop. The year is 1989 and I am 52 years old. The leader asks us to think of three things we’d love to do before we die and likely never will. My “Bucket List”… climb Kilimanjaro, climb the Matterhorn and see Everest Base Camp. What, I’m not a climber? Little did I know where those wishes would take me. Fast forward to May 22, 2007. It is 8:08 in the morning and I am standing at 29.035′ on the top of Mt. Everest, the world’s tallest mountain. Aside from two Japanese people, I am… Read more.
