Judging vs. Creating

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

I recently asked some people to explain the difference between being judgmental and being selective. I received dozens of different answers. Some people said that being selective is milder, more logical, less emotional, or more practical than being judgmental. Others felt they were just different words to describe the same thing. And still others had […]

Branding is Fear-Based B.S.

Monday, July 30th, 2012

Branding, brand management, and brand strategy are rooted in fear and are completely unnecessary. This is true whether we’re talking about business, product, organizational, or personal branding. The primary aim of branding is control. But people don’t generally like to be controlled. So branding is largely done at the subconscious level; if it were done […]

How to Stop Being Disappointed

Friday, July 6th, 2012

If someone is late about 70% of the time, and you expect them to be on time, that’s a rather foolish prediction, isn’t it? They may be on time, but they probably won’t be. What many people will do is get angry with the friend who’s frequently late. Does this usually change that person’s behavior? Perhaps […]

Free Audio on Goals, Life Purpose, and Relationships

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

Last week I shared a free audio program from Hale Dwoskin, author of The Sedona Method. Several thousand people have already listened to it, so it’s been pretty popular. I’m happy to say that Hale created another free audio on goals, life purpose, and relationships, and this one is free as well. It’s under 22 minutes, so […]

Why Are You Hiding?

Wednesday, April 4th, 2012

In case you thought it was for real, my previous post about the Domination-Submission Workshop was indeed an April Fools joke. Anyone who clicked on the “Register Now” button would have seen the “April Fools” message. I still think the phony D/s workshop sales page was pretty awesome. I also had way too much fun […]

New Domination-Submission Workshop

Sunday, April 1st, 2012

Originally I had planned to hold off on doing any new workshops till the Fall, but I got inspired by an idea for a new one, and I know from experience that it’s important to take action when inspiration strikes. This idea also meshes nicely with the social expansion I’ve been enjoying lately. I’d normally […]

How to Create Intimacy

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

In this post I’ll share some deep thoughts on how to consciously create intimate connections with other people. I’ll also explain the mindset/heartset that can help you overcome any fear of rejection. The Myth of “The One” When I first started out in business (developing computer games in the mid-90s), I sank into debt for […]

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 […]
