Excuse Me, Who are you?

If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!What if we forgot everyone we knew? Or forgot everything we thought we knew about a person? If we treated everyone BRAND NEW. If we shut off the tape in our heads that plays what we think they might say, what we expect them to do, destroyed the tape with all those preconceptions. What happens then? In a world brand new, where we are constantly learning an discovering, and not judging or assuming. What happens then? I challenge you to forget what you thought you knew and go learn someone in a new way. … …

How Are The Children?

Among the most accomplished and fabled tribes of Africa, no tribe was considered to have warriors more fearsome or more intelligent than the mighty Masai. It is perhaps surprising, then, to learn the traditional greeting that passed between Masai warriors: “Kasserian Ingera,” one would always say to another. It means, “How are the children?” It is still the traditional greeting among the Masai, acknowledging the high value that the Masai always place on their children’s well-being. Even warriors with no children of their own would always give the traditional answer, “All the children are well.” Meaning, of course, that peace and safety prevail, that the priorities of protecting the young, …

I’ve Been Set-Up!!

My whole life has been a SET-UP for right NOW. A set-UP for greatness, for success, for living life to its fullest.I have been generously set-up! The traffic ticket I couldn’t afford. The long line at the supermarket. The job I didn’t book. The break-ups. The petty bickering. The getting angry about nothing. The worry, the fear. The tears, of joy & sadness. The suffering. The unforgettable nights. The days that couldn’t end soon enough. They have all been a set-up, for right here, right now! How can I grow from this? How can I choose to use this to my advantage? All a part of the plan. Placed HERE …

ENOUGH

The Fear of “Not Enough”. The fear that WE are not enough. Everybody feels it – The Successful and unsuccessful, the alive and fulfilled, the empty. This deathly feeling of not enough. Everybody feels this in some context: Not rich enough Smart enough Playful enough Pretty enough Strong enough the list goes on… Now when we feel worthless there is no deeper fear than us being not enough; and because we are not enough we cannot possibly be loved; but only we can judge our self-worth, no one else. We are ENOUGH and so much more. Say it, Out Loud. Own it. The world is yearning to LOVE you, all …

Ask yourself

Did I live? Did I love? Did I matter? Did I grow? Did I learn? Did I break rules? Did I breathe? Did I slide in head first at least once? What will my obituary say? How will I be remembered? Did I do everything I wanted to do? What do i want out of this life and why do I think I can’t have it? What am I doing that I don’t love? These are the questions that matter. These are the questions that grab our veins and shake the dust, shake us from the inside. These are the thoughts that begin to tear down walls, move mountains, tilt the axis …

Bodies Like Machines

Like any other, and with the right tinkering, obsessing, and maneuvering we can make anything happen! “Ask and you shall receive.” Like in every other field and concept, the Human Body is no different. Ask – See the Big picture. Get Specific – Clear and defined goals. Start Now – Start right now and start small -yes, small. A thousand little changes over one drastic one is more accessible and easier to maintain. Understand that it takes TIME and EFFORT. Be prepared to put in the Work. it is easy to lose weight, it’s difficult to maintain it. That is why health, fitness, and overall well-being can not be a …

Go Home, Change The Story

Take all the Villains and turn them into Heroes. Take all the things that went wrong and make them right. Make what should have happened, what did happen. It’s not delusional, it’s truth, believe it. It’s not a lie, the lie is the dark and grim story you tell yourself. How do I know? Because we were not put on this planet to have or achieve or BE anything else but magnificent. Our magnificence, your magnificence. Don’t compare it to someone else’s. This is your story. For some the story ends as a president, for others, a doctor, a monk, a firemen, a wife, a school teacher, a poet, a …

What Unexpected GOOD Will Happen Today?

How many times have you asked that?? Are you ready for all the good that will come your way? Expected and unexpected greatness. Or have you feared the worst? Instead of fearing all the things you wish wouldn’t happen but most likely expect will happen, ask yourself – With the mindset that there is more than enough, nothing but enough GOOD to go around: What good!? All Good! What unexpected good will happen today? What great things will surprise me today? What does the universe have in store for me today? What beautiful lessons will I learn today? Who will I meet? What will I see? Where will the universe …

Efficiency Is The key

We can always do things smarter. Less time, smarter effort, allows us to do more of what we love. People set really unrealistic goals. So for instance, “write book” would be a terrible goal. It’s just not specific. It’s not measurable. I’m very big about setting micro-goals, or very, very small goals. So for that person who needs to write a book, for me a goal would be, “write a hundred words.” Progress is key, progress is hitting those micro-goals. Being “Over whelmed”, stress, lack of day all boils down to the same things – you are not doing what you really want to be doing. You are wasting your …

Just Open The Door

How many times do you see what they can not see? That he/she is no good for them, that job makes them miserable, that they are addicted to the pain, that they probably should order seconds, that they spend money recklessly, that they drink too much, etc… We can’t just tell them, because they might not listen, they might not be ready to hear; and who are we? We can’t tell them, but we can show them. We can open the door and remove a window shade so they can see, but they must make the final decision to walk outside, to tear down the wall, to be free from …
