Create Your Own Support System

November 25, 2020

Desire is natural and healthy. Desire or wanting more is genetic hunger, a life expanding itself through you. If you pretend you don’t want more, or that you don’t desire things, you’re only lying to yourself. The desire for more will never go away, but you don’t have to be a slave to your deepest craving. Some people will always have more, and some will always have less. That’s not a factor in how you appreciate right now. Make sure you’re not sacrificing now for later. Enjoy Life Now If you don’t give yourself permission to enjoy life now, why do […]

My Beautifully Glorified Life

November 18, 2020

I’ve got to be honest… I’ve never found glory in hard work, working hard, or sacrifice. I’ve worked hard and took the path of most resistance many times in my life, but it sucked and deep down I knew I was acting out others’ ideas of what life’s supposed to look like. I think it is the silliest concept man ever created… Let’s kill ourselves to live. That lifestyle is fine for some, just not for me. I Shamelessly Desire Ease I demonstrated struggle for my daughters. I taught them life needs to be hard and stressful. Now I’m showing […]

Life Loves You

November 12, 2020

Life loves you. It really does. Life’s your biggest fan. Your prayers are already answered. You might not believe it, but life wants the very best for you, and life wants you to have whatever you want. If you don’t have what you want it’s because you don’t trust life. And it’s lack of trust in life that makes life so difficult. Just stop fighting. Let life prove to you just how much you’re loved and just how valuable you are. When I was young I didn’t trust myself, others, or life, and was scared of everything because of extreme […]

Transparency Resolves Shame

November 4, 2020

I’ve lived in shame of my body. I’ve lived in shame of my hidden gluttonous urges. I’ve lived in shame of my memory of insignificant details. I’ve lived in shame of my shame. I’ve lived in shame of my talents and gifts. I’ve lived in shame of not being perfect or not knowing. I’ve lived in shame of my desire to accumulate wealth. I’ve lived in shame of having everything I need, and still wanting more. I’ve lived in shame of being molested. I’ve lived in shame of my heightened sexual desires. I’ve lived in shame of abusing and manipulating […]

This is THE WORK

October 28, 2020

You are not here to live anyone else’s vision for your life. Yes, you play a part in others’ stories, but you are not here to be whom they decide you can be. You get to figure that out all on your own, and then others get to decide if they want to continue in your story. Likewise, no one is here to comply with your wishes or expectations.   Find That Sweet Spot The sweet spot in life is not dependence, codependence, or independence. The final resting place is interdependence. Interdependence is when two complete and fully authentic and […]

My Proudest Moments

October 14, 2020

I have a ton to be proud of over the past four years since I’ve rebuilt my health, built a business that lights my soul on fire, and rebuilt my family. What is the one thing that I’m most proud of? I am proud that my family embraced the journey of discovery to find my purpose, my passion, and my mission in this lifetime. Our Collapse Lead to a Rebuild One of the reasons I became a 300-pound, suicidal alcoholic who got fired from two executive positions in 20 months was because I was so far out of alignment with […]

Life Can Be Easy

October 7, 2020

Life is not about unnecessary stress and struggle. As human beings, we are addicted. We seek it out. Life never needs to be hard and you don’t need to sacrifice your life, health, or family for your dreams and your enjoyment. Seriously. Do only things you love. Get clear about what you desire. Embrace what you deserve and expect it to show up for you. Receive it when it shows up. Throw a party and celebrate and be grateful for the awesomeness you are and the process of creation you get to enjoy! It never needs to be hard unless […]

We ARE Divine

September 30, 2020

I’ve struggled with many things in my life, but most of my stress and struggles revolved around food, money, sex, and God. Let me explain. I Wasn’t Worthy Since I was a little kid I’ve felt powerless in this world. I felt like everyone else was important and significant, and I was just an afterthought — a waste of space. In Catholic school, I was taught that I was just a fundamentally flawed creature, and I should be ashamed of even being born. The guilt and shame ran thick in my Catholic family and religious upbringing. Guilt and shame were used […]

What Are You Allowing?

September 23, 2020

One time I was asked to counsel and provide support for a group of business partners. They were struggling to align in the vision for their business and in their trust of one another. Within seconds of my introduction, one of the partners immediately began to challenge my credibility and questioned why he should listen to me. Without hesitating, I challenged his level of respect, his lack of tact, and how he showed up in an undignified manner. I challenged him and asked how this was showing up in his relationships and his business results. I made sure he knew […]
