Manifestation is an interesting word

Manifestation is an interesting word. I’ve heard it a lot when the movie The Secret came out. This was because it was trendy and popular. The term seemed to die off a bit and I was fine with that. Once again the word seems to have sprung back to life, but more likely, it’s the books I’m reading and the people I’m hanging out with that is the real cause of me hearing and seeing this word over and over.

Being Authentic Is The New Black

Being authentic is the new black. We’re all tired of the fake appearances people give on social media… … and in real life. I’m guilty of it. I was raised with the notion that you don’t share your dirty laundry. Well, no one wants to wear my dirty laundry… or my clean laundry for that matter (style’s not in my in my zone of genius apparently). Yes, authentic is the new black. Last night my wife and I went…

“Going to prison was the best thing that could have happened to me.”

I watched a documentary about a man who spent time in prison. He didn’t feel the punishment was befitting the crime as he didn’t think there was a crime.   But, when they were interviewing him, he said something that struck me:   “Going to prison was the best thing that could have happened to me.”   My initial reaction was that he must be playing for the camera. I wouldn’t blame him.

Change is inevitable.

My wife and I often say that we want our son to stop growing up so he will stay the cute little boy he is. Of course, we don’t really want that for him, and we also know that change is inevitable. There have been several books written on change. For many people, when things change, they can…

What can I learn from this experience?

This is a compelling question and a complete paradigm change from most of the stances we take when we feel something needs to be changed or fixed. When we’ve determined something is wrong, such as not having enough money, being too fat, in a bad relationship, etc., we turn our minds into a negative “what’s wrong with me” mode and then resort to trying to fix the problem from…

Welcome to the New Year!

As hard as I try to pretend that it’s just another day, there is something undeniably special about the New Year. Perhaps it’s the #1 on my calendar, or the first month of a year, or the first day of a quarter… or perhaps, it’s the fact that I’ve been conditioned to think of it as a blank slate. Whatever it is… I like it. Each year I set a theme for…

What are your wins for the week?

What are your wins for the week? Do you write them down? I take a siesta each day, but right before I do, I write down my wins for the day so far. I repeat the process at night (mostly). I make…

The dreaded 404 error

The dreaded 404 error. This is the error you get on your screen when you click on a link and it takes you to a dead end – a page on a website that doesn’t exist. This is frustrating, but at least you get an easy to recognize error message. In…

More Fun = More Success

During my morning meditation, a thought came to mind. I’ve always had the most success when I was having fun. This is true as an athlete, where I felt like I was in a state of flow – in the moment. The game seemed easier to me and I would laugh (which would worry people).

What’s your #1 top priority?

What’s your #1 priority? Really. What is it? Not your, “this is what I wish it were” #1, but the real #1 priority. About six months ago my wife and I hired a coach. An intimacy coach. We…
