Restoring Hope

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

Lacking clarity about what you want to experience in life is a common problem. Another problem is having a reasonable sense of what you desire but feeling blocked in moving forward. With either of these problems, you may experience a feeling of stuckness, sometimes even hopelessness. One of the main causes of this stuckness is […]

Crossing the Bridge

Monday, February 27th, 2012

It’s difficult to create a life of abundance until you have a truly inspiring vision of what life will be like on the other side. Many people try to move towards abundance because they’re fed up with scarcity. They’re tired of working at jobs they semi-dislike just to pay the bills. They notice the years […]

Getting Back to Growth

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

After shutting down the discussion forums a week ago, I took some time to think about my major focus for 2012, as I like to do at the beginning of each new year. To wrap up 2011 and transition to 2012, Rachelle and I went to Phoenix for Raw Spirit Fest, and then yesterday we […]

Why Logic Always Fails You

Saturday, November 26th, 2011

What part of your life always seems to be on the back burner? Is it a certain relationship? A hobby you’ve always wanted to enjoy? A spiritual pursuit?

What Is Commitment?

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

Put your head underwater and keep it there for a while. You’ll soon realize that you’re 100% committed to breathing. Notice that you don’t make excuses not to breathe. Notice that you don’t worry about motivating yourself to breathe. Notice that you don’t need to justify your desire to breathe. You just breathe. Commitment is […]

Arbeit Macht Frei

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

The harder I work, the luckier I get. – Samuel Goldwyn Arbeit Macht Frei is a slogan on a sign above the entrance to the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland (among other concentration camps used by the Nazis). It roughly translates as, “Work sets you free.” What the Nazis expressed with cruel irony, I say seriously. […]

Love Your Customers

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

Let me share a possibly unorthodox angle on customer service. One reason my business has been successful is that I enjoy running it. A big part of that enjoyment is that I genuinely like the people my business attracts as long-term customers. I include many of them among my friends and hang out with them […]

How to Achieve Travel Goals

Tuesday, August 16th, 2011

Are there some places you’d just love to visit? How long have you dreamed of doing so? Years perhaps? When you see movies about visiting certain cities, or hear about people traveling there, does a certain part of your psyche salivate with desire? Do you have the thought, I really want to go there someday. […]
