Your Uncommon Diet Is a Social Advantage

Friday, January 3rd, 2014

I find it ironic (and mildly stupid) when people feel they’re at a social disadvantage if they eat differently from everyone else in a social situation, as if they have to conform to fit in. No, conformity puts you at an enormous social disadvantage. Being different is a godsend. Eating differently can enhance your social […]

Resting in Discomfort

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

At Rich Litvin’s coaching workshop that I attended earlier this month (partly to speak there and partly to learn), Rich talked about how he handles coaching situations where he doesn’t know what to say next. He said that when he doesn’t know what to say to a client, he pauses and says nothing. Rich pointed […]

Coaching Coming Together – Recap

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Here’s a recap of the audio recording project I shared in Coaches Coming Together and Why No Women. The recording project was an amazing success — even better than I expected. Over the course of 3 days, we recorded about 9-10 hours of very unique material. Our purpose wasn’t to create expert-style, how-to material. Nor […]

Overcoming Trust Issues

Saturday, December 14th, 2013

How easy is it for you to trust other people? Do you trust people easily? Or are you often suspicious of others’ motives? Do you trust life enough that you can quit your uninspired job as soon as you recognize it as such, and know that life will bring you something even better? Or do […]

Synchronicity

Friday, August 2nd, 2013

I’ve written many times about how synchronicities tend to increase when I’m in the flow state. I often think of synchronicities as acknowledgements from the universe when I’m successfully following my path with a heart. Let me share some specific examples of what these synchronicities look like. Lately I’ve been enjoying speaking about social skills, […]

World of Energy

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

Perhaps the biggest core mistake you’ll make along your path of conscious growth is subscribing to the belief that you live in a world of objects. You don’t. You live in a world of energy. Objects are separate. Energy is continuous. Objects have gaps between them; they can appear to be apart and not touching. […]

Your Beautiful Personality

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013

This is a follow-up to the recently posted article “Do Your Goals Conflict with Your Personality?”┬áIn that article I shared how understanding the core aspects of your personality can help you set better goals and help you achieve your goals more easily. In the 2+ weeks since I shared that article, I’ve spent a lot […]

How to Attract Quality Relationship Partners

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

On my Google+ page, I recently shared the following: To attract a happy relationship, define what you want in a partner, tell the whole world, and then filter and select for matches. It’s important not to waste too much time dealing with partial matches. Once someone has shared something about themselves that’s a mismatch for […]

How Obedient Are You?

Tuesday, May 28th, 2013

In the early 1960s, Yale professor Stanley Milgram conducted a serious of famous psychological experiments to measure people’s obedience to authority. A volunteer was instructed by an experimenter to help administer a simple test to a subject in another room. Cards were drawn to determine which of two “volunteers” would play each role, but the […]
