Be the exception

Being the exception means you don't do everything others do.  It means you do different things.  You do things differently.  You do what others won't.  You see things others don't see.  You pursue what most don't.  You believe things about yourself most won't.   Being the exception means you live a…


A cranky world?

Did you ever notice that when you don't have enough sleep that the world gets uncooperative, difficult, dumb and impatient? Could it be mirroring you?


Opportunity = Danger

If we want safety and security, we have to forego opportunity.  We have to take risks.  We have to let go of our old status and comfort and security to become a different person.  We have to risk looking foolish, losing what we have, feeling awkward in a foreign world,…


Winners and loser both have goals

What's the difference? Focus, delaying gratification, willingness to get uncomfortable, self-discipline, consistency and ability to rebound from setbacks. You?  


Only action leads to outcomes

We want long term goals - health, to be able to run 10 miles, to be an expert at ____________ , to finish ______________ , etc. Now that we set goals we are willing to pay the price to achieve, we have to focus on the daily actions that will…


There are no mistakes

Only opportunities to learn and grow, understand and get better. If everything went perfect, we wouldn't be very good or very strong at all.


How to change your life

I teach a class called "How to change your life".   First, we have to know what we want, and what we don't want (anymore).  Clarity.  It's a big important word. Now, what people around you represent what you do not want?  Who has the habits you want to break and…


"Just taking it easy"

Recently a childhood friend I had not heard from in 40 years contacted me on Messenger.  "How are you doing?" he asked.  "Really great!" I replied.  "How are you doing? I asked.   He replied, "Just taking it easy for the next 8 years until I retire". People have different outcomes…


Bottoms up!

Get up off the couch and move that body! Get your internal chemistry lab going to make you healthier and feel better!


The "i" in illness

The I in illness is isolation. Don't isolate yourself.  Stay connected with other people.  Your health and happiness depend on it.


You can't be happy sitting on the couch

If you can not risk, you can not grow. If you can not grow, you can not be your best. If you can not be your best, you can not be happy. If you can not be happy, what else matters?


Self-development enables dreams

Every day, if you don't work on you, your skills and knowledge, your attitude and your ability to be of value to others, then you will have to reduce your goals and shrink your dreams. It's habits.  It's a lifestyle. It's a choice.


Your money beliefs

What we believe will drive out attitudes, behaviors and outcomes for the rest of our lives.  The good news is we can question and change our beliefs.  Ask yourself - What is your most powerful memory relating to money? What is your biggest fear about money? What were you taught…


Worry is Unproductive

Worry is living the worst outcome in advance. "Now that all your worry has proved such an unproductive business, why not find a better job?"- Hafez


Fail forward

"I tried it and it didn't work." Ok, you are smarter now because you know that when you do that in that way, it doesn't work.   Now get on with it and try it again, smarter!  Or go a different direction based on what you know.  There is no success…


You stressed you out.

When there is too much stress and worry in your life, you can look outward for the solution, but it won't help; at least not in a meaningful or lasting way.  For example if we blame others, we can absolve ourselves from responsibility, but now we are just angry at…
