Fuel for My Dreams

December 23, 2020

Years ago I made a radical shift in my life, identity, and what I stood for. My entire life shifted quickly, and it’s evolved from that day forward. But I first remember thinking, “I can’t be different, what will they think?” Well, that was because I had people in my life who cared more about how I fit into their world and what I did for them… Instead of caring about me, what I wanted, and who I wanted to be. You can shift at any time. On a dime. I made the decision to be prepared to lose everyone because […]

I Choose to Not Care

December 16, 2020

It’s not that I don’t care about chaos in the world… It’s that I can’t care and still live the life I desire to live.  I used to turn over my success, happiness, and freedom to others… The media… Religion… Politics… Economics… Social drama… I used to decide if I could be happy based on what was going on around me. I never stood a chance.    Serving From My Perspective The greatest purpose that I can serve to the world and society is to turn my complete and full attention to my own health and well-being, my business impact […]

The Stories We Tell Ourselves

December 9, 2020

Byron Katie once said, “When we believe in our thoughts, when we tell ourselves a story, we suffer. When there’s no story, there’s no suffering.” The stories we tell ourselves are based on our beliefs. Our beliefs create our reality, so when we decide to believe painful things, we are making the decision to choose a painful life. As children, we might not be able to discern, but as adults, we certainly have a choice. We can choose the most loving beliefs and the ones that promote joy, happiness, success, and freedom, instead of the ones that make life difficult. […]

Why Not Choose Easy?

December 3, 2020

Do you believe you can have it all without killing yourself? You have dreams of being able to enjoy life, but you still find yourself sacrificing each day. You still do things that you “have to” do to keep it all together.  Can you imagine living a life you “get to” live instead of one you “have to” live? I’m talking about enjoying 100% of every single aspect of how you show up in your love life, in your health, in your relationships, and in your business. But, here’s the real reason you continue to fight: You are addicted to stress […]

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 […]
