“Life should be a daring adventure or nothing at all.”
I love watching movies. Old movies that is. I am fascinated with movies that were made in the 40’s and 50’s. I find that most of them were done so well. The script, acting, cinematography, and production were first class. I do like some of the movies made today but I don’t go out of my way to watch them, so when I’m on a plane, I get a chance to catch up on the new releases. On my way home from Australia last month, I got caught up. One of the movies I watched was a National Geographic Movie, Free Solo. OMG, it was amazing. It made me think of what it means to be alive. To live your life like you were on the edge of life or death, literally.
It made me think of what the meaning of life really is and what is it that holds us back from living it full out. I mean, I don’t have the calling to scale mountains like Alex Honnold, but I do know my purpose and have a desire to reach more people through coaching because I love my work and I know it works. It made me think of what I need to do to become better, more focused and give it my all.
If you have a desire inside you, really ask yourself, what are you willing to do, to give up and practice to become your best? To live fully and be alive! Go for it. Reach inside of yourself for the answers. Stir up that juice that is calling you to something greater. Go watch the movie, maybe it will inspire you as it did me. You have greatness in you. What is calling you? Go for it! Seek it and you shall find! Risk Being Alive!

“Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.”
― John Lennon
I love this quote! So many times people worry over things we have absolutely no control over. We get so caught up with the negative “what ifs”? What if everything turns out horrible? What if we lose? What if it doesn’t turn out the way I planned? I’m sure you can think of other what ifs. But what if things turn out great? What if you could view life as a glorious adventure?
This reminds me of a folk story that brings things into perspective.
There once was a farmer who lived with his wife and only son in the country. They owned one horse that helped them till the soil and plant their crops.
One day the horse just decided to run away. All the neighbors found out and said, “Oh I’m so sorry for you. Now you are going to have to work so much harder.” The farmer kept his cool and said, “we’ll see.”
After a week the horse came back with a Mare. All the neighbors said, “Oh you are so lucky, now you have two horses to help work your land.” The farmer just said, “we’ll see.”
Now, their only son wanted to tame the new horse, however he got thrown off of her and broke his leg. Again the neighbors said, “Oh you poor thing, your only son that helps with so much can’t help you work.” The farmer just said, “we’ll see.”
A war broke out in the country and all the young men had to go to battle. However the farmers son could not go because of his broken leg. The neighbors said “Oh, how lucky you are, your only son gets spared from having to go to war.” The farmer again said, “we’ll see.”
So you see, the story of life has its good times, it’s bad times. Life has its ups and downs. There are highs and lows as well. How we face those times makes all the difference. Life is like a rollercoaster. You can enjoy the thrill of the ride or feel like you just want to get off.
Joe Biden, the former Vice President has a new released book entitled, “Promise Me Dad”, a year of hope, hardship and purpose.
He exemplifies what it means to have courage and faith. You too can set your own sail and find your purpose by choosing how you respond to life’s circumstances.
Look for ways to be of service. Go the extra mile, and make it a point to lift someone else up by giving a compliment. It goes farther than you can imagine.

Depression begins with disappointment. When disappointment festers in our soul, it leads to depression.
I was talking with a client the other day whose life was always filled with much joy, prosperity and purpose. He is two years away from retiring, from a job which he has always loved until recently. Now, somehow he has become disconnected and his fears are over taking him. Like many people who feel depressed, he is going through the motions without the passion and purpose in life. It is a tough place to be. It is debilitating.
I know, in my younger years I too felt alone, anxiety, sad and disconnected. I understand the grip of pain that latches on to your soul. This darkness grabs you and doesn’t want to let go. I put on a happy face but underneath I was a totally mess.
What I did was turn my mess into a message. That is what my client is now doing as well. It doesn’t happen over night. Our society has become so dysfunctional that it kind of reinforces depression, suppression, and oppression. Addiction is now considered a pandemic. Everyone has their heads down looking in their phones. No one is communicating face to face any more. The word communicate comes from the word commune, to come together. To commune with nature, to commune with our spirit, to commune with divine intelligence and even commune with our bodies in a healthy way. Through neuroscience we know that the brain can rewire itself. We know that the brain has plasticity. Which means that with the proper help, understanding and support we can reconnect to our true self and divine energy to lift ourselves out of a state of depression to an expression of joy!
Finding your joy and releasing your pain is the greatest gift you can give to yourself and to the world. When we do, we are actually creating a more peaceful place for all humanity. That is how big this really is! Here’s to you’re happy self.

People demand freedom of speech to make up for the freedom of thought.”
Thinking is the highest function we are capable of. It requires concentration, self discipline and creativity. Everything that we see in the material world came from someones thought power. So why do we have so much poverty, unhappiness and sickness? What are we actually thinking about anyway? Or are we thinking at all?
George Bernard Shaw said; “Two percent of the people think; three percent of the people think they think; and ninety-five percent of the population would rather die than think.” Thinking is hard work. Actually it is the hardest work you will ever do. Staying with a problem to find a solution requires effort. James Allen Said; ” Until thought is linked with purpose there is no intelligent accomplishment.” These three men were all great thinkers. Thinking is a gift from source energy. We have the freedom to choose any thought we want, yet we use our minds for small tasks rather than accomplishing great things in our life.
We all want things in our life. Those things require thought power. If you want a healthy body, you have to eat healthier foods, exercise, and use disciple to see yourself being that person with the lean body. If you want to have a higher position in your company, than you must learn what it takes to step into that role. Ask yourself some powerful questions. Who do you want to become? What do you really want from life?
You can have it if you take the time to think about it. Hiring a coach is one of the best ways to move the creative process along faster. Two minds are better than one.

We must be willing to get rid of the life we’ve planned, so as to have the life that is waiting. Joseph Campbell
When a crisis hits you like loss of some kind, an accident or illness, you can either rise above or sink into the abyss. The choice is yours. There have been a few times in my life where I was at the edge of despair. We all go through times that can rattle us to the core of our being. We plan our life, set goals and work hard to accomplish them and boom, something happens that takes you in a completely different direction.
For awhile we feel sorry for ourselves and wonder why this is happening. However if you have a strong inner drive with purpose and passion, you will soon see the silver lining in that seemingly misfortune. ” Every adversity, every failure, every heartbreak, carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.” Napoleon Hill
With guidance, perseverance, and faith you will rise above. Stay true to being YOU!
You must jump into the unknown, for it is there that the answers to your search will reveal themselves.
To find out how you can discover your best life, call for a free consultation and begin living with passion and purpose!

Creating the life you want requires a shift in consciousness. The old way of doing this was work hard and you will have a good life. Or just get a good secure job and your life will be good. Well, that doesn’t quite cut it in the world today. There are no long term secure jobs and working hard does not guarantee a good life.
I have learned that envisioning the life I desire and meditating on it will bring me much more success that trying to change the outside world. All change starts from within. It is a shift in focus and perception. You must go into the nothingness and create the something. From no where to now here!
The most difficult part of doing this is blocking out a chunk of time every day to go into the quantum field of possibilities and imagine the life you desire. See it as if it has already manifested. Feel yourself in the picture, and be so grateful for it is yours! Every thing is created twice, once in the mind and then into the physical form.
Need help creating your passion and purpose. Give me a call! You can life your best life!!!

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time. Thomas Edison
How many times have you hit a brick wall when you’re working hard on a project or idea you want to manifest? You just find that you’ve tried and tried but nothing is showing up. Do you give up or to you continue?
I’ve heard it said that the difference between try and triumph is a little umph.
In Napoleon Hill’s book Think and Grow Rich, he talks about a true story of a man who discovered a gold mine but he needed money to purchase the tools to excavate the mother load out of the ground. He borrowed money from his relatives to buy the equipment necessary to dig for it. Unfortunately he hit a wall and found no gold, so he gave up 3 feet from the where the gold was to be found. He sold the equipment to a junk yard dealer who was smart enough to hire an engineer who knew all about how gold is mined, and eureka he discovered the gold.
I know it can be really challenging to keep going when the money gets tight or you’re not seeing what you want. But if you believe in your dream, if you have a strong vision, calling and purpose, keep going. Ask for help and keep moving forward with a positive attitude. You could be 3 feet from your own gold.
If you’re feeling stuck, I can work with you. Let’s talk.
