Living Your Life Purpose

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

You may recall that a few months ago I did a survey to see what kinds of products people would be interested in seeing me create. Among other insights this provided, it helped me see what the most requested topics are. Where do people need the most help? One of the top requests in that […]

Are You Faking Progress?

Monday, April 25th, 2011

One of the big traps in life is believing that you’re making progress when there’s no actual evidence of it. It’s easy to keep learning and studying new ideas, methods, and techniques that don’t improve your results… while convincing yourself that you must be making progress simply because you’ve invested a lot of time and […]

The Best Guidance

Monday, February 21st, 2011

In his recent book Manifesting for Non-Gurus, Robert MacPhee contrasts two different methods for making your desires a reality. The first method is to define your outcome and then dive right into massive action. Adjust your approach along the way, and keep going until you get there. This approach is easy to begin, but as […]

Military Intelligence Officer Interview

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

Here’s an interview I recently did with a British military intelligence officer. We met last July in Las Vegas and talked for a few hours about military strategy, Iraq, Afghanistan, blogging, and many other topics. I thought that some of what we discussed would make an interesting blog post, so I suggested that we do […]

On Tuesday, December 7th, I’ll be hosting a men’s group meetup in Las Vegas. If you won’t be in Las Vegas on Dec 7th, or if you’re female, you can stop reading now since the rest of this post won’t be relevant to you. The meetup will be led by Peter Myers, who has experience […]

30-Day Supertrials

Monday, November 15th, 2010

For years I’ve been recommending theĀ 30-day trial as a way to install a new habit or replace a bad habit. Many people, myself included, have used this practice to successfully make behavioral changes — and have them stick. Now it’s time for the advanced version: The 30-Day Supertrial.

The Power of Connections

Friday, November 12th, 2010

One of the conscious growth principles I’ve been teaching for years is the principle of Love. This principle states that you’ll grow significantly faster — and enjoy the process of growth much more — when your life is rich in supportive, encouraging connections. People violate this principle constantly — and to their detriment when they […]

Subjective Relationships

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

“What is the primary goal?” “You should know, Professor. You programmed me.” – War Games Well… this 30-day trial of inspiration is absolutely amazing. I’m so far down the rabbit hole of subjective reality that I can perceive little else but rabbits now. And there sure are a LOT of rabbits down here! Today is […]

An Inspirational Week

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

I spent last week in Santa Fe, NM for a Transformational Leadership Council retreat. These TLC retreats are held twice a year, and this is the third one I’ve attended. It was also the largest, with about 80 members (out of a total of 114) present. The atmosphere at TLC is like a big family […]

Suspending Judgment

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so. – Mark Twain Whenever I write about certain topics, especially those that seem contrary to mainstream conditioning, some people voice very strong opinions. They communicate their thoughts with a high degree of certainty, as […]
