Motivation doesn’t really work as it comes from external sources and isn’t sustainable. We often confuse motivation for inspiration.

The most inspiring and powerful people are not perfect. They respond to their imperfections powerfully. This means that they own their “failures” and their “shortcomings” and are comfortable with them, they commit to growing and doing their best as they learn, and refrain from beating themselves up or dwelling in...

We have been somewhat trained to feel guilty for things like being happy, having success, having wealth, having something come easily, or simply feeling good. Of course, this guilt doesn’t allow us to fully own any of the things listed above, which has a huge impact on us. It robs... Continue reading

Often, opportunities to create exactly what we want look like problems at first. When we have visions of the lives we want, especially when they are different than what we see examples of on a daily basis, we can forget that bringing that life into reality takes creativity, solutions, and...

I know there are things happening for you that you didn’t plan for and that you didn’t prefer. Now it’s time to rely on your perspective. You get to choose whether or not your circumstances are happening to hinder you or to help you with something. There’s no right answer,... Continue reading

You’ve dealt with problems before. You’ll deal with them again. This one right in front of you isn’t a big deal. You’ll work through this one as well. What if you took the perspective that happiness doesn’t come when we have a problem-free life. What if our happiness comes from... Continue reading

My life works better when you do what you deeply want to do, not what I want you to do. Your life works better when I do what I deeply want to do, not what you want me to do. Especially when it’s challenging to see it. When we all... Continue reading

It’s likely that no one is going to randomly call you today and give you permission to do the thing you’ve been wanting to do. This is because you don’t need it, and because people don’t know know to do that. When we find ourselves holding back our of feeling... Continue reading

Give yourself permission to try again. Have faith in yourself. You're different now. You've learned so much. The same challenges aren't going to have the same impact on you. Bumps in the road won't take you out like they used to. It is even possible that you can view things... Continue reading

Our computers, phones, televisions, tablets, and all of the other amazing technology we rely on now only do their magic if they are charged up or connected to the right source of power. Otherwise, they are just well-designed machines, not fulfilling on their potential. We as human beings are the... Continue reading

Choosing to feel happy when life seems challenging helps us see solutions. Choosing to feel unhappy when life seems challenging has us see what could go wrong. Love begets love. Fear begets fear. Fear does not beget love. Our work is to create what we want to be able to... Continue reading

What we put out has a lot to do with what we take in. Both the quality and the quantity of what we put in. The legacy we leave behind and the impact we make come as a result of what we put out into the world with our energy,... Continue reading

It is most important to give ourselves a fresh start in the areas that we think it’s time to give up in. In the areas that was have failed multiple times, been less than we were committed to being, and have solid past-based “evidence” that it is extremely unlikely we... Continue reading

We are each designed with the capability to understand what others might be going through or experiencing, and it isn’t always our first instinct to do so. We usually see things through our own perspective first, and we often get stuck in our own point of view, not realizing we... Continue reading

Sometimes moving forward into what’s next looks like letting go of the “progress” we have made in one direction. We must turn around and go the completely opposite or a completely new direction for a while. Our work in times like these is to remember that the effort we put... Continue reading

Many tiny transformations are what add up over time to create big change. We cannot change everything at one time, and we can change everything if we take it one thing at a time. Our work is to trust ourselves to start from right where we are today and to... Continue reading

Maybe you don't need to learn another thing in order to fix yourself or make yourself better. What if, instead, you took inventory of all of the things you already know in your gut to be doing and aren't doing, and start doing them one-by-one? We often look to something... Continue reading

The only perspective we will ever have is our own. Even if we do the important work to put ourselves in the shoes of others and broaden our own perspective, we will still only see through our interpretation of what another's perspective is. There is nothing to do about this... Continue reading
