The Value Of Silence


Do You Embrace The Moments Of Silence In Your Life?


We live in a world today that surrounds and consumes us with noise and information.

It is everywhere, from the fan on your furnace that blows air through your house, to the television, phone, cars driving by on the street…

Everywhere you go there is noise. Something that is there to distract you from the silence of being with yourself.

Most people have developed the habit of needing noise around them to be able to function. They have no idea what to do with themselves when the silence appears. It become a place of discomfort and fear for most of the people these days.

What has happened to us?

This is a tragedy in the making.

The fact that people don’t put themselves in place of silence is one thing…

But it has come to a place where most people don’t even value silence as being a core part of their life and who the be.

We are so frickin’ busy these days that we don’t know how to slow down, relax, take a deep breath, and be with ourselves even for a moment.

How did we get to this place?

What is it doing to us?

Silence is the most valuable part of our journey here on this earth.

It is the place were we find peace, joy, and true happiness among the busyness of our days.

It is a place of reflection and coming to know who we are and be at a level of connection and contribution that allows us to show up as our biggest selves in the world.

Allows us to dream, and to take the time to believe that it is possible.

So next time you are feeling the urge to turn on that television before you go to bed, or play the radio in the background, consider taking a moment of silence.

Reflect on what is happening in your life.

Think about your dreams and life of the future.

Be grateful for all that you have…

And Just BE With YOU!

It only takes a moment.

Will you take a moment of silence for your life today?

Go ahead… Just do it.

You’ll be glad you did.

Keep your dreams alive.

Your Philosophies


What Philosophies Run Your Life?


We all have governing philosophies that run our life.

Whether we know what they are or not they are they and define the choices we make and the life we live.

Want to truly change your life? Change your life philosophies.

If things just aren’t working out the way that you expect them to or even want them to, then you may just be stuck with a bunch of life philosophies that are holding you back.

So what is a life philosphy anyway?

They are those things that have been programmed into you that create your beliefs and views of the world.

It defines your perspecitive and interesting point of view you have of the world around you.


If you take some time to sit with yourself and dig deep inside, you will find what they are for you.

And the guess what you can do with them?

If you are an active reader of my blog posts then you probably know already what I am going to say…

You get to choose what you do with them.

You can give them up and say thanks for your work and support so far in my life… but it’s time to move on and you no longer server me in my dreams and desires.

They you can go out and get some new ones.

Image that.

Just Simple.

Choose and take action.

How does it get any better than that?

Take a few moments today with yourself and discover your life philosophies.

Then choose how they are working for you ( or not ).

And make some new ones.

Here are a couple of mine:

  1. What you give away you always get to keep
  2. You can’t complain about that which you allow
  3. On the path to success failure is the only option… Defeat is not

Share some of your life philosophies in the comments below.

I look forward to reading them.

Supporting Others


What Do You Do To Support Others?


Successful people do an amazing job of uplifting, loving, and supporting others.

Now I know what you might be thinking.

Most people people that in order for someone to get to the top and become successful, someone else has to loose out.


Is that your opinion of what it means to be successful?

Someone else has to loose?

Well guess what?

Although it may seem that way in some cases, the fact that someone has to loose is a truly and totally false statement.

What make people successful to me, is the leadership ability that is based on them being truly who they were born to be an allowing other to do the same. (Without Judgement).

It’s not your job. the size of your paycheck, the amount of money in your bank account, fast cars, and fancy houses that define success.

It’s all about who you BE and how you show up in the world.

How are you BEING in the WORLD?

Are you showing up at the true and real you?

Truly successful people have supported 100’s and 1000’s of people on their way to the top… and they continue to do so each and every day.

So what are you going to do to support someone on their journey today?

How are you going to be a contribution to who they are and who they be?

It’s your choice.

Which do you choose?

Start becoming the leader and success that you were born to be today!

Support the people around you along the way.

See you at the top!

The Blessings Of Miracles


What Do You See When You Look Around You?


Do you see miracles?


Look close… they are there.

Just waiting for you to reach out your hand and receive them.

So if miracles and blessings are all around us, why do most people not see them?

It is like they have a blindfold on going through the motions of life and not seeing what is right in front of them.

This blind fold keeps them stuck in the rut of their current existence and struggling to move forward into the life of their dreams.

Well if the miracles and blessings that will take you to where you want to be and desire in your life, then what will it take to through off the blind fold, reach out your hand, and experience them for yourself?

Unfortunately for most people, they are living in a state of wanting more and worrying about what they don’t have and even what little they do have in their life going away.

These things drive them and creates the results that their life is on the outside that you see of them.

Can you relate? Do you know anyone like this?

I have met many people like this on my journey of life, and as I reflect back, I can even see times in my life where I was blind to the miracles and blessings that surrounded me.

So if you find yourself in this state where you can’t see things around you remember this…

“You can’t see something outside of you that you first don’t see inside you”

Life is an inside job. You can read more about this on my post about Who You Be Is What You Do

What you create on the inside always determines what you be and do on the outside as well as what you see around you.

Think about if for a minute…

“Is it possible to see something that you don’t know about?”

Well of course you can’t. It’s impossible to see something that you don’t know.

But what you can do is believe that there is something greater than what you see for yourself.

And to do that it starts with Gratitude.

Gratitude at two levels:

  1. For you and who you be right now and all that you have in your life.
  2. For all the people and things around you that are there to support you on your journey towards your dreams and desires in your life.

Here’s something you can do today to get started…

At the start of each day, right when you wake up, think of three things that you are grateful for, and write them down. Then at the end of each day, do the same thing, think of things that you are grateful for and write them down. This will take no longer than about a minute each time. Don’t over think it. Just do it. Ask yourself the question:

“What am I grateful for at this moment?”

and write down whatever comes to your mind.

Let it flow.

Do it for at least 30 days and watch your life transform.

The miracles are there to bless you with.

Remove the blind fold that has been keeping you in the dark from receiving them.

Start today.

You deserve to live your life to the fullest.

You deserve to have it all and live your dreams.

It’s there for the taking… Are you willing to stick out your hand and receive it?

Keep your dreams alive!

100% Responsibility


Are You Willing To Show Up As The Best Version Of Yourself Today?


Of course you are… RIGHT?

Most people in the world have the intention of showing up BIG in everything that they do, but that doesn’t always happen as they progress through the activities of their day.

You see… the moment you believe that someone else is responsible for your results, is the moment that you completely give up your personal power and your ability to show up BIG in the world.

It is so easy for most people to want to blame, judge, or criticize other people for what is happening in their life. And if their life is not going as they planed, hoped, or dreamed… then the blaming goes to a whole other level.

Have you notice this happening in your life?

What have you done to work through and overcome this type of thinking?

The best thing that you can do for yourself when this kind of thinking shows up is to STOP… right where you are for a second, and recognize that this is what is happening.

Awareness is the first step in being able to change something in your life. In fact, how can anyone change something that they are not aware of in the first place?

Let me tell you a secret that all successful people know and do…

1. They alone are 100% responsible for their life.
2. They take 100% responsibility for EVERYTHING that shows up in their life.

How powerful is that?

Now I know what you are probably thinking…

Can someone really take 100% responsibility for their life all the time?

Well, it’s not easy… but what is easy is for us to blame other for the stuff that shows up and that’s what’s keeps up held back from the life we desire and dream of.

So isn’t it worth it to step up and take the road less traveled even if it maybe a bit hard to do?

YES! And you will be glad every time you do.

It can be easy to get stuck in the “Blame Loop”. That cycle that keeps you going around and around in circles living the same life you have always lived.

Being stuck in that loop will suck so much energy out of you that you will not have any left to show up BIG in the world.

But the worst thing about being in this state of not taking 100% Responsibility for your life is…. you will start to not TRUST People.

When that happens, people will also start to not trust you either.

You definitely don’t want any of that for your life… RIGHT?

So how do you break out of this “Blame Loop” and get back on track with the life and business you have always dreamed of?

Well, you can’t change what other people do to you, you can only choose to change how your react to these situations.

As you practice taking responsibility for yourself, you get to the point where you are grateful for everything that shows up in your life as it will allow you to always show up BIG and continue to Grow each and every day.

Taking responsibility for your life give you the power and energy you need to act quickly, make decisions, and take action towards your desires and dreams.

Giving it up to others takes your power and energy away.

What will you choose?

Decide now to show up BIG in everything you do in your life and take 100% Responsibility for all of it!

Watch how all your dreams and desires you have every had for your life and business will start to show up in ways you never could have imagined before.

Go Ahead.

Start NOW!

Lean Into Your Future


When Faced With Obstacles And Challenges… What Do You Do?


Do you back away? …

Hide under your desk?…


Do you lean into it!

All people who have achieved great success in their lives have done so by standing up to their fears, kicking the to the side, and taking massive action in line with their dreams and desires.

When fear shows up in your life… What do you choose?

Be courageous, make a choice, choose for your future self and all your dreams and desires will come true.

Push through your fears by leaning into your future now.

I know there are times when things feel so tough that you just don’t want to go on. I’ve been that, done that, and wrote the books about it along with the made for TV movies.

I get it. I know what it means to be straggled by fear in your business and life.

But let me share with you one thing…

When you finally decide to face what you fear and put it aside… it is so much easier and yes, the grass is greener and smells way better on the other side.

What the heck is this thing called fear anyway?

It is a thought that comes from an experience you have had in your life that triggers a feeling that give rise to an emotion that makes you feel afraid.

Right, it’s that stuff that makes you feel bad when you play it over and over again in your head. It’s the same old same old stories that you tell yourself. Check out this post if you want to discover how you can start telling a different story in your life.

Fear always starts within your mind based on how you understand a specific situation.

So if that is the case, then in order to get rid of our fears, we can just choose to think a different way about things and situations in our lives.

How awesome is that?

Yep, it’s that simple.

And when we are pushing back against something, we don’t need to ram our head into it full force.

We can just lean into it.

Take it with ease and joy as you move towards your dreams and desires for your life and business.

Go ahead…

Make a choice.

Move forward taking massive action!

and Lean into your future TODAY!

Kick fear to the side.

Start living for you today!

You’ll be glad you did.

Unlearn Your Way To Success


What If Everything You Know Is What Has Been Holding You Back From The Success You Deserve?


What do you think keeps you stuck where you are on your life journey?

Is it the stuff that you don’t yet know?

The things that you haven’t learned yet?

So many people get stuck on the things that they don’t know how to do and allow that to keep them from doing the things that they already know how to do.

A mentor of mine would always remind me…

“If you would only do what you already know what to do, things would be better.”

In fact, if there are things that you don’t know that you don’t know how to do, how can you do them anyway since you don’t know.

This is true about stuff that we are not skilled at and it holds people back big time in both their business and their life.

It has certainly happened to me from time to time on this glorious journey.

Has it happened to you?

Well what if you are doing all the things that you know how to do and things are just not going the way that you expect them to?

What if you are not getting the results that you desire to have in your business and life?

What if there is another side to this thing about learning and doing.

There always is another side. Everything has at least 2 sides to it.

You can’t have one without the other.

So with that said…

What if the things that are keeping you stuck are not about learning something that you don’t know how to do at all?

What if it what is holding you back is what you already know and all you have to do is unlearn it and you will instantly breakthrough?

Now I know what you must be thinking… This is obvious. We have to get rid of old habits that no longer serve us.

I get it. But most people are focused on the next thing that will take them somewhere rather than looking at where they have been that has got them to the point they are at right now.

Here are 3 things that most people need to unlearn in order to unlock their success:

  1. Addiction to the Outcome…

    Most people are so stuck on the outcome that they desire to have that it totally blocks their awareness of possibilities that exist for them to achieve all that they desire in their life. This focus on outcomes is based on the goal setting paradigm that has flooded the business and personal growth space. What if instead of focusing on the outcomes that you allow yourself to keep your vision in tack, through away your goals, and create some targets that you can shoot at and if you miss, you simply choose new ones or shoot at it again. Drop your need to achieve the outcome in the way that you envision it to be and watch how you can move forward with more ease.

  2. Knowing all the Steps…

    All people who are stuck in their lives are focused on knowing every detail of what it is going to take to make it happen. The step by step plan that will get them there. What if this was holding them back? What if it was keeping you from even getting started in the first place. When you can see all of the steps in your mind of what it will take to get to a certain outcome, sometimes it tricks your mind into believing that it has already happened and you end up doing nothing, where in reality nothing has even been started. Through away your desire to know all the steps and just take the first one and the rest of the path will appear. You can choose at each step along the way which one to take.

  3. Success of Others…

    Seeing others having success at the same thing that we have in mind to do and be holds a lot of people back. In business it is all about the competition. I talked about what the real competition should be in your business in this post here. Rather than having it make you stuck, use the success of others to help you move forward by knowing it can be done. Don’t let others success and competition hold you back.

On the journey towards the life of your dreams and desires, there are both learning and unlearning that will lead to your success.

What will you choose to unlearn in your life today?

Take action to breakthrough now.

You’ll be glad you did.

Keep your dreams alive!

Things Left Unsettled


Do You Leave Things Unsettled In Your Business?


How many times have you left things unfinished? not closed off? up in the air? still hanging?

I know that most people do this a lot… And I have been one of the guilty parties right at the scene of every instance of this in my business and life in the past.

So when we leave things in this unsettled state, how does it make you feel?

Do you feel like you are low on energy? Down on your luck? Just not very motivated?

When you are constantly living in the state of unfinished and unsettled business in your life, it can be very draining of your energy.

It is like and open door or window for the energy that fuels you to rush out of it.

Think of it like and open window on a cold day with all of the heat rushes out and the room is left feeling cold and empty.

Is that how it make you feel when you leave things unsettled?

So why do we do it?

What makes us leave things unsettled and never close them off?

  1. Fear…

    We are afraid of what might happen if we confront a situation. So instead of taking care of it and closing things off, we just leave it and hope or wish that it would go away. How has that worked out for you thus far in your life? I bet it has not been very energizing of fulfilling. RIGHT?

  2. Distraction…

    We live in a world where we are constantly inundated with information and stuff in our lives. Sometimes we get so busy in our busyness that we forget about some of the things we have opened up and started that need our attention and to be finished. I am sure you can relate to this. Especially in the online universe!

So if we know realize that the energy that we want to have is leaving our body through these unsettled things that we just have left open, what can we do about them.

Here are 3 simple things that you can do to help limit your unsettled business:

  1. Taken an Inventory…

    Unplug yourself from what is distracting you in your life and reflect and write down on the things that you need to take care of. Then take action and get them done.

  2. Have a Plan…

    You have most likely heard the saying… Failing to Plan is a Plan to Fail. Well if you don’t have a plan how can you know if you are getting better at what you are doing? How do you know what you really need to be doing in the first place? Take your dreams and vision and write out a plan for what you will do today to take you one step closer to it. Include in the plan on unsettled thing that you need to take care of today.

  3. Choose…

    Choice is the greatest gift that we have been given in this wonderful world and journey we are on. Decide today that you will choose not to leave things unsettled in the future. You will always finish what you started from now on. You can do it.

This are things that have helped me to take care of the unsettled stuff in my business in life…

What are the unsettled things in your life and business that are holding you back from the life of your dreams and desires?

Go ahead and close them off today.

Make a choice to shut the door on them for good and take back your power and energy to move your forward on your journey.

You know you can do it.

Just Frickin’ Getter DONE NOW!

You’ll be glad you did.

Delusion by Comparison


Are you feeling like you are not having the success that you deserve in your life and business?


Do you look around and see other people succeeding where you are not?

Does that makes you feel like crap?

Does it make you question whether you can ever have success in what you really want to do in your life?

I have met so many people to get stuck in the Delusion by Comparison trap that keeps them stuck in their business and life.

They are constantly in a state of looking around at what other people are doing and allowing what they see to make them feel lousy about what they are, or are not, doing.

From their point of view, these people are doing much better, are further ahead, and these people have come to believe that there is no way they could catch up.

With the information available on the Internet and right in your face while you browse Facebook, these beliefs and comparisons are killing people’s hopes for their dream life before they even can get started.

Can you relate?

At one time or another, everyone has probably been in that state. Unless, you have lived in silence as a monk on top of a mountain with no interaction with people or connection to the Internet for the past 40 years of your life…. But not many of us are doing that.buddhist-monk-on-mountain

So for the rest of us who have not turned to the monk-hood, let’s look at what is going on for a person in this state.

The first thing to consider it that the things that these people are thinking about themselves when they compare to others, are just that… Thoughts!

And the best thing about Thoughts are, they are not real. They are just things that we are thinking in our head.

It is only when you choose to Believe in the thoughts in your head as True, that these thoughts actually become true for you.

Believe it or not… your thoughts can be changed through what you choose to believe.

So the next time you get into the Delusion by Comparison of your life to another persons, stop and think for a minute. Ask yourself this question:

“Is this thought that I am thinking true for me?”

I’ll let you in on a little secret… 99% of those kinds of thoughts are totally false and have not place in your mind let alone in your believes.

Challenge your thoughts when you get into this state on your journey towards your dream life.

Separate your thoughts from your truth.

Align your focus and actions along the path of beliefs that will take you there.

Stop beating yourself up with judgement’s that you have based on what others around you are doing. Just STOP IT NOW!

You are progressing at the pace that is right for you and your current beliefs.

Want to change that pace, change your beliefs.

Show up BIG EVERY DAY and continue on your journey.

You will be triggered emotionally from time to time as you observe what others are doing around you. Take it in, let it out, and continue on your path.

As one of my mentors taught me …

There is no right way, There is no wrong way, There is only your way!

Be You and make the change in the world that you were born to give.

Keep your dreams alive!

Choosing Possibilities for Success


What are you choosing for yourself today?


For most people, when things show up in their life that could help them achieve their dreams and desires, they don’t always see them for what they really are.

What I’m speaking about here is the difference between Possibility and Loss OR Opportunity and Cost.

For most people in the world, when a possibility shows up in their life to move them forward, they quickly go to asking the questions:

“What will I have to give up to have this?”


“What will this cost me?”

But if you truly what to have the success that you have always dreamed of in your life, you might want to re-consider the perspective in which you are looking at the possibilities that are showing up in your life.

You see, all Super Successful People see the greatness in the possibilities of things that show up right in front of them rather then the challenges and cost of the things around them. And they are willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen in their lives. To allow for the greatness of what they see to go from their mind into reality.

On the other hand, those who choose not to see this in the things that show up in their lives, are really struggling with giving up and loosing what they already have, and what makes them feel good at this moment in time. (Even though the things that the perceive are making them feel good are the things that are killing them and holding them back stuck in what they already have in life).

So rather than sit in the crap of what you are already experiencing, the next time something shows up that you know inside of you will help you get to the next step on your journey, ask this questions of yourself:

“What will I gain from this?”

“How will this make my life better?”

“What contribution can this be to my life?”

Doesn’t that just feel better when you ask those questions to yourself rather then the others we mentioned earlier?

Of course they do. They invite a positive possibility energy into your that makes you feel good!

And who doesn’t want to feel good… RIGHT? 🙂

So the next time you see a possibility for transformation in your life showing up right in front of you, look for what it will add into your life and how it will help you move towards your dreams and desires. Then use this as the fuel to move yourself into action and do whatever it takes to have it all in your life.

Choose the Possibilities for Success in your life today!

You deserve it!

Keep your dreams alive!
