I know your type.
You run all day, likely holding your breath, you rarely (or never) have time to enjoy a relaxed dinner with your family, and you wake up every morning dreading the day ahead.
Imagine if you could be in Bizarro World and you suddenly open your eyes feeling enthusiastic about your life, you browse a bookstore on a whim, and even have a quiet mind for most of the day.
Call me crazy but this is possible.
Ask yourself: What is really ...
I have done many things and not done even more. Some of them were things I "tried" then failed. Maybe I was not invested, or even believed that I would fail before I started. But the things that were successful, were all worthwhile because I did them. They didn't have to be "change the world" things, just maybe "change me" a little things. Like losing weight, or reading something positive daily or even writing a blog. Stuff I did then forgot ...
Have you let yourself off the hook too easily?
“Stand up for yourself!” This statement was used by someone who thought they were encouraging a meek or quiet person who was being bullied in some form or another.
To stand up to yourself is another thing altogether. For some of us there is two differing thoughts on occasion; the one for us and possibly one against us. The negative part of your self that seems to work against everything your true and whole ...
Why not become proactive in your commitment to transform, adapt and move your business forward?
The answer to “What’s holding you back?” is typically yourself. We usually have a list of excuses why we aren’t moving forward very fast or at all for that matter, but most often we just haven’t learned how or acquired the tools and skills to do so.
Becoming “proactive” is about actively learning something new. It’s also not just a lack of time, but time spent in the ...

Decisions, decisions! As a business owner I am sure you may feel that you are always making choices of some kind or another. Some are easy seeming there was no decision whatsoever and others are more difficult. You weigh the pros and cons of each decision, then trust your intuition with the final choice. The good news is that you can always make another choice in the future!
The decision I have made affects all of you, my faithful followers. I have ...
The Unknown Quote, "The Road to success is dotted with many tempting parking places" has definitely shown up in my reality.
I have been lured to park on many occasions. Sometimes I parked for just enough time to reenergize and other times it was a time for reflection. Only you know if this sounds like something you have experienced in your life.
Maybe you have seen it differently. It may have looked like procrastination or even busy-work, but you may have been parked, nonetheless.
The temptation of ...
I was looking through some images thinking about what to write about the uncluttered mind. This really struck my funny-bone. Drinking coffee is what some do when they are looking for energy, inspiration or just procrastinating. The busy head will do anything to stop thinking and take a “mental” break by going to have a cup of coffee, or tea in my case.
Coffee is a real stimulant so if you have not been inspired you may just have added to your ...
Remember the times when the teacher did roll call in class and the answer after your name was called was “present”? You were fairly present at the moment you heard your name. I don’t know about you, I was somewhere else for most of high school.
Today BEing present actually shows up by participating in the moment you are in, completely. Multi-tasking be damned, just doing one thing at a time and not wandering off in body or mind to another task, ...
There have been days as of late that I find myself standing in the middle of a room spinning. Not the kind you do as a kid with your arms wide looking up to the sky with puffy clouds and the sun peaking through. The kind where you can’t decide what to do next. I do know that this is temporary. My environment is not optimal at the moment with moving boxes everywhere and none of my “STUFF” anywhere nearby or ...
