Can you imagine what the Earth would look like if humans had never ventured out of our early settlements? We certainly wouldn’t have grown very much as a civilization. We wouldn’t have explored every continent, the deep oceans, the tall mountains.

When you feel uninspired, unfulfilled at work or with life in general, what do you notice happens with your confidence? Confidence easily freefalls into a downward spiral when you are unhappy. Disappointment so easily leads to the “not good enough” feeling because we take it personally. We feel like we are directly responsible for our unhappiness. But you know what’s great? We are also directly responsible for our happiness. It’s
You’ve probably heard of people who are “birds of a feather” or “peas in a pod,” but why do you think that “like” hangs out with “like”? It makes sense, of course, that you would join with others who you share a commonality with in some way. This is how we’ve found friends since we were little.

If your life were a movie script, what would you highlight? What would be your legacy? Would people want to buy tickets? We both know that you are ready to play a bigger role in the world, so the time has come to define your legacy. What will it be? Who will it affect? What will you change for the better? The most important question, of course, is who will
Finding your inner compass is the first step in the challenge of navigating the waters toward your goals. Once you know what your goals are, how are you supposed to set the coordinates? When I talk to fellow travelers, the “how” tends to be what stops them in their tracks. How am I going to find my way? How am I going to reach my goal? When the goal seems
There are times in each of our lives in which we know the sun is there somewhere, but we can’t see it behind the clouds. Maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed by responsibilities. Maybe you feel like you’re living someone else’s life and tired of the inauthenticity of it all. Maybe you’re just plain stuck in a rut! Help is here! The trick is to will those “clouds” out of the way.
“But if I do this, I don’t think my parents will be happy.” “Wonder what my husband will think about this decision?” “I would LOVE to…but what are my friends going to think?” When you’re faced with a decision, can you make your choice confidently without looking back? Or do you find yourself hesitating, crushed by the weight of others’ expectations or worries about their judgement? Life is too short
Are you living your purpose on purpose? Living life intentionally is about knowing the reason behind your daily tasks—your Why—not just what you do day to day—that’s your What. When you know the answer to your Why, you can create the vision behind the tasks. This, in turn, drives you from where you are to where you want to be. It helps you meet your goals and, ultimately, achieve your
One shot. That’s it. Do you want to stay where you are or reach for the stars? For your life to be an incredibly awesome ride where you can have it all, your dreams are happening, the real you has emerged, you LOVE what you do, you’re attracting the right people to support and inspire your journey, and so much more, you have to be ready to move outside your
I want you to take a hard look at where you are now. Really consider your current situation. What do you not like about it? What drives you crazy? What do you think will be a thorn in your side for the next five years if you don’t take that next big step? Ask yourself what playing small is giving you in life. Did you scare yourself?
