1. Who Are You Listening To?

    As I approach being “retired” for almost a year now I find it interesting that some of the biggest projects I am working on were not even my ideas! The book, podcast, leadership presentations and a game changing collaboration with a couple other law enforcement power players, were not things I w…Read More

  2. Don’t Be Afraid of the End

    Life, like nature has seasons. Just like the beauty of fall turns into the harshness of winter. Deciding to change something in your life creates uncertainty, doubt and discomfort. However, we cannot have the fresh breeze, chirping birds and blossoming trees of spring without going through winter. Y…Read More

  3. Bad Moments or Bad Days

    I want you to think of one of the “worst days” of your life and what happened to cause it? Many times, it is a bad moment and our response to it that allows it to spiral into other bad moments or an entire day. “Bad” things will happen to us daily. The alarm not going off, traffic jams, rude…Read More

  4. Your Story is?

    We all have a story.  Where we are from, how we were raised, things we are good at, stuff we wished we would have done more of and things we regretted doing at all.  We all have scars on our bodies, in our minds and our spirits from the journey.  How we use them is our choice. They can become the…Read More

  5. Intentional

    The definition of intentional is to be done on purpose; deliberate. How many of us go through each day without having any intentions about our happiness, fitness, relationships, finances and our lives? We wake up placing all our hope in external sources that they will come through and provide these …Read More

  6. What If?

    No matter how hard we try to be our best, do our best and be perfect, someone, somewhere is not going to agree with what we are doing. They are going to have an opinion on how we could do it better or how they would do it if it was them. They have lots of advice on what you should do next, where you…Read More

  7. Wanting More

    Almost everyone we know wants more. More money. More freedom. More time. More meaningful relationships. More, more, more in all aspects of life. Yet shockingly many are unwilling to do MORE. They are unwilling to try something new, to learn a new skill, to join a new group, to take on a new challeng…Read More

  8. I Can’t and I’m Too Busy = I’m Choosing Not Too 

    I hear these two phrases far too often and it absolutely drives me crazy!  What makes the matter worse is that I’m not talking about hearing it from children or teenagers who are aren’t yet in control of their lives.  I’m hearing it from my peers, people my own age and it’s usually accompa…Read More

  9. Belief and Action

    I am truly appreciative of all of you that take time to read this weekly, and comment, like, share, or message us about it.  It is my hope the messages, self-reflection and honesty have brought about the same in you in some manner.  I must share that one of my biggest fears is that what we are doi…Read More

  10. Purpose vs Motivation

    This week I was asked to deliver a “motivational” talk with someone who was struggling.  It got me thinking that I don’t really like being “motivational”.  I would much rather have a talk in which people reflect and find their true “purpose”. When I think of motivation I think of vid…Read More
