How do I get over a scarcity mindset?

Rarely is this question asked this way, but today it was and the conversation continued for over an hour. I’ll do my best here to break down some of the basics. First, it’s important to understand that on the opposite side of scarcity is abundance and gratitude. This is important to realize because when in a state of abundance or being grateful, you can’t be in a state of scarcity. Second, it’s good to know a little…

Feeling trapped?

This is more common than most people care to admit – especially with business owners and CEOs.  They have a great idea, start a business, dot their I’s and cross their T’s… … then they put their head down and get to work.  They’re capable of handling more work than most and that’s why they so often get trapped.  These successful business owners, and CEOs, push the line to the max.  When they pick their head up, they realize they’ve…

This is why you procrastinate

When there’s something in your life you want, big or small, and you find yourself putting it off time and time again, then the reality is that it’s not that important to you. What’s happening is that you’re associating more pain to taking action than you’re currently experiencing from not doing anything. Of course, you could just be enjoying the excuses. Many do, though few want to admit it. But let’s say this isn’t you. You don’t enjoy playing the…

5 Reasons You Might Want To Sober Up

As a coach, I get the opportunity to look inside the lives of my clients. It’s a privilege I don’t take lightly. These high-performers can push the lines in all areas of their lives. Their ability to push through is often one reason they’ve become successful. Often times, this drive also causes them to find ways to decompress with equal vigor. Over the past week, I’ve had two people reach out to me and share their desire to stay sober.

Do you pay it forward?

Do you pay it forward? Darcy, my right-hand woman, and I decided to head out and work from a coffee shop. She was visiting so we could do some planning for a project we’re launching in 2019. Darcy ordered her drink, then I ordered mine, but I couldn’t help but notice the woman sitting at the bar looking at me as I talked to the barista. Obviously, she was checking me out… …except that she wasn’t. As I pulled out…

What is the lie at the center of your life that makes your life not work?

What is the lie at the center of your life that makes your life not work? I’m not good enough.I can’t afford to do it. I’m not worthy. The timing isn’t right. There are a lot of variations of these, but most of the ones I hear revolve around a few central themes. Chances are, yours does too. What would your life be like if this subconscious belief didn’t guide you? What would life be like if you knew in your heart…

What would your day look like if you didn’t have to sacrifice yourself… or something else?

Coaching and mentoring allows me to look inside the lives of successful business professionals. Not always, but usually, when they have been successful in business, they have done so by sacrificing their relationships and/or their health. Even with my background in health and fitness, I did this too. It’s an easy trap to fall into. One day you look in the mirror, or at your partner, and realize that something slipped through the cracks along the way… and worse… you…

Have you ever been screwed over?

Have you ever gone out of your way to help someone only to have them stab you in the back? I have. I’m going to guess you have as well. For me, this happened recently and I’ll share the story with you. I was helping a struggling gym owner who was six months behind on his rent. He was down and I felt bad for him, so I wanted to help him get back up on his feet. I have…

I never knew how people could do something like this…but now I do.

Have you ever flown into the wrong airport? I just did. Never knew how people could do something like this, but now I do. As I sit here typing this at a coffee shop outside London, I’m struck with the irony that I also happen to be reading a book titled “The Surrender Experiment.” When I booked my tickets, the email came back with “London/Heathrow” as I had expected. What I didn’t do was check the…

Pasty white and fat? The result stunned me!

Growing up, I was always a chubby kid. I was bigger than most of the kids my age and certainly more physical. The result of having two athletic brothers who were 7 and 10 years my elder, yet encouraged me to compete at a high level. I excelled in sports and played all day every day – but I was also a fat kid. I was also, and still am, pasty white. Although I spend my youth in Southern California,…
