1. Keep Showing Up!

    We are almost through the first quarter of the year and by now many have forgotten their New Year’s goals or resolutions. Many have settled back into the same routines and habits that left them wanting more just a few months ago. Many of us get discouraged when the results don’t immediately make…Read More

  2. Purpose of Pain?

    Pain is our notification that we have lost something important in our lives. It could be a portion of our health or wellness, the loss of someone special, the job we always wanted, a relationship we neglected, a sporting event we had committed everything to, or even a reminder we have lost sight of …Read More

  3. Grinding Without Belief?

    We are constantly hearing the terms “Grinding, The Grind etc..” coming at us from motivational speakers, ads and across social media constantly. Everyone is “grinding” away at their days, working hard, getting up early, staying up late and touting the struggle of the process. We can work our…Read More

  4. If You Want More Give More

    This week I was fortunate to spend 45 minutes with a young man working on his mma skills and discussing life in between our drills. He spoke honestly about his life and his struggles and allowed me to share with him some of my experiences and perspective. He’s a young man that sadly feels many hav…Read More

  5. Just Decide

    I was asked this week about what kind of courses I had taken to learn about leadership and coaching. While I do love learning, reading and following great people.

  6. When Good People Go Silent

    I had an interesting conversation with some friends the other day and one of the topics that got me thinking was about the negativity in our world, our media and even in our social media. Several people including, I, proudly proclaimed that we did not watch the news or follow much media coverage as …Read More

  7. Passion vs Calling

    This week I was blessed to have been posed with this question from a longtime friend:  Am I pursuing my passions or is this a calling?  I was caught off guard by the question and had to take a moment to come up with my response. Passions are emotions which can come and go. They can burn intense fo…Read More

  8. Quit Looking for Perfect!

    We are so concerned with getting things right or perfect that we spend far too much time analyzing and gathering data, information and sometimes our courage. It’s easy to dismiss our lack of action because we are still researching the best or perfect way to do something. We find a video or article…Read More

  9. Accountability and Forgiveness

    There are all sorts of buzzwords going around as people look to recreate themselves for the new year. To me these two words are extremely important and while they seem to be opposite forces, I believe whole heartedly that for either to be truly effective they need one another. We need to be accounta…Read More

  10. Happiness

    It is one of the most misunderstood and elusive words in our language. It is unique to each of us and can be different from moment to moment.  Many of us look at happiness as a random act that just happens sometimes and does not at others.  I believe happiness is a choice, an intentional frame of …Read More
