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 […]

Life: Enjoy The Ride

September 16, 2020

I don’t believe that struggle is a necessary part of life, and here’s why: Life contains natural turbulence. Life is certainly not a smooth ride where everything goes according to expectations and plans. I view it as similar to getting on a plane. We choose our destination before the flight. We sit down buckle up and pull out our search-a-word book. The plane takes off and the seatbelt sign goes off. At some point, the captain says, “there’s going to be a little turbulence, so I’m turning the seatbelt sign back on.” Then we bump around for a bit and survive the turbulence. […]

Life on My Terms

September 9, 2020

When we started our professional development business, my wife Angie and I had two outcomes in mind: Success and happiness. We were tired of the hustle and the spinning wheel of career torture and sacrifice and wanted to enjoy ALL of life, not just some of it. Today, I woke up on my own terms, carried out my morning routine on my own terms, got in a lift on my own terms, then Angie and I went on a 2-hour walk. We stopped at a coffee shop along the way. This is not a vacation day. Just an average day […]

Beliefs Create Reality

September 3, 2020

Every discussion I have leads back to health, wealth, identity, and love. It always comes down to these four factors. When I speak with business owners who are struggling or have big goals, everything they want can be tied back to one of these areas, and sometimes they don’t understand that it’s not those things that they are seeking, but rather to show up in a state of internal, personal power. Internal power will unlock and open every door you desire to have opened. The answer is always inside, yet we always seem to look on the outside. A New […]

Know Thyself

August 27, 2020

If she attacks you, it’s because she doesn’t trust you, and you don’t bring safety, security, and love to your relationship. She doesn’t trust you because you don’t know who you are. She wants you to stand for something, and show up for something greater than yourself and your family. If you don’t know who you are and your greater purpose, how can you possibly lead yourself? If you can’t lead yourself, you can’t lead anything or anyone. Be purposeful and powerful. Demonstrate potential, not apathy. Define your purpose. Identify your values. Create your vision. Above all, know thyself and […]

Happiness Now

August 20, 2020

I was always scared to tell folks that they didn’t need more to be happy. I always felt like I’d be criticized and shamed by the hustle whores and grind gurus. It was enough to hold me back. My fear. Fear is stupid. Guess what? You don’t need more. You really don’t. The amount of peace and happiness in your life is exactly equal to the amount of peace and happiness you’re letting in. You control that level. You’re calibrated for a level of happiness, and you control the level. Most people are set to ZERO. When good stuff happens […]
