  • Ready For A Breakthrough?

    Ready For A Breakthrough?

    Today is all about you striding boldy in the direction of your dreams. I want us to talk about stories… about you telling a new story. What can you come up with? What’s the new story you want to tell? In the areas of your work or career? How about your health and weight? In your relationships? When […]

  • Everyone Dies, But Not Everyone Truly Lives

    Everyone Dies, But Not Everyone Truly Lives

    Ever take a moment in the middle of things to ask, “What am I doing with my life?” “Is this how I really want it to be?” “What the heck have I been doing?” Ever find yourself in that situation? Suddenly, you realize the job you always wanted is no longer ideal… you’re not living […]

  • Why Can’t The Good Times Last?

    Why Can’t The Good Times Last?

    Ever struggled through a real rough patch and someone offered you the phrase, “This Too Shall Pass”? I like the wisdom of the phrase.

You see, my kids’ mom is African American, so my kids are biracial. Austin, my son, favors his mother, so while he has a […]

  • Life Is Hard

    Life Is Hard

    How easy can you allow it to be today? Go ahead, let your guard down. Many of us have been programmed to think that life is a struggle. We have heard the quotes, “No pain, no gain,” and “Life is hard then you die.” Unfortunately, this outlook radically impacts how many of us live our […]

  • Just Do It

    Just Do It

    Have you ever been in a situation where you procrastinated from doing the right thing? We all have moments of indecision. Times when we are really stumped about which is the most appropriate path — right or left, fries or salad, sports car or hybrid, to stay or to go. While I have my fair […]
