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

If not, why are you doing it? Or at the least, why are you doing it with the attitude you are doing it with? If you are doing it, and it is is not supporting you, whatever "it" is, you are likely doing it out of some sort of "should,"... Continue reading

Sometimes we take advice from "experts" who are further down the path than we are. This is a valuable thing to do, as long we can see that their advice is simply their perspective, from the past. What can happen if we are not careful, is we can let their... Continue reading

Being responsible for our past is different than being constrained by it. Being responsible means that we are interested in what has worked and what hasn't worked up until this point, from a place of curiosity and commitment to being our best. It means that we go back and apologize... Continue reading

There are things in our lives that we can only learn through experiencing. There are things that we can only learn through going through a series of actions or steps that together produce and end result. These many distinct steps are the things that help us grow. Often, our growth... Continue reading

Hope is a beautiful thing, and by itself isn't enough. There are times when we need to realize that hope its not a strategy and it is time to get to work. However, if we act on it, hope can be the thing that leads to change. Hope is the... Continue reading

There is no one right answer. There are only choices. There is no guarantee that the choice you make ends up being the "right" one, especially if you look to someone else to make the choice for you. Your best chance of knowing that you made the right choice comes... Continue reading

The thing that there actually is to do or say is simple. It is worry that makes it seem complicated. If you find yourself in a state of confusion or complication, ask yourself, "What is it that I am worrying about, that if I were to stop worrying about, the... Continue reading

If you practice your faith (taking action in alignment with what your highest self believes in) during a challenge, you will come out on the other side stronger, without a doubt. If you abandon what you believe and practice fear and doubt instead, you may get stuck inside of the... Continue reading

Just because you can, doesn't mean you have to. And just because you don't want to, doesn't mean you shouldn't. Our work is to stay in our listening and curiosity long enough to notice our initial reactions and shift into responding based on what we are truly committed to at... Continue reading

Backing off doesn't mean stopping. Bringing in some ease doesn't make us less committed. On the contrary, if we do these things intelligently, they can help us stay in our process and be even more committed. We are designed to grow through challenging things. We need to move through challenges... Continue reading

The experience of being disorganized will inevitably come with moving into a new goal. This is a good thing. It's how you know you are on to something. When you change priorities and focus, you must also change how you allocate your time, focus, resources, and energy. This will lead... Continue reading

Today's resources (your time, your energy, your attention, your money) should be used for today's opportunities, not yesterday's problems, or even yesterday's opportunities. Our desire for comfort and a clear path keeps us focused on yesterday, even when yesterday isn't useful anymore. It is our job to look every day... Continue reading

Positive change comes from being open- open-minded, open to being impacted, open to new possibilities and opportunities, openly expressed with your useful thoughts, feelings, and requests, vision, and goals. If we are closed in any of the ways listed above, we will remain mostly stuck, and at the least, only... Continue reading

That feeling when you know you don't want to do something, when you know you aren't going to do something, when you know it's not the best option for you... and you override that knowing and say yes anyway. What if you never, ever did that again? What would that... Continue reading

Your next step on your path is just that, it's a step. You have many more steps after this next one. All you need to do is take the next step for right now. The right step won't be permanent. When you're moving along your path at the correct cadence,... Continue reading

For most of of the choices and decisions we are hesitating on making out of resistance, it is important for us to see that we could totally live with the downside if it didn't work out. Meaning we could handle the experience of failure or not looking good. We could... Continue reading
