Roadblocks to Creativity Are Illusions

Every moment, we are creating, whether it’s a conversation, a painting, our day, our relationships, work, an email, a new thought, or a sandwich. It’s almost impossible to not create.

Why Unconditional Self-Love is Key to Organizational Success

Let me be clear that unconditional self-love does not mean tolerating negative behavior. Nor does it mean being selfish or greedy. I'm talking about self-perception, which ultimately drives our ability to trust and believe in ourselves, which in turn affects how we perceive others and the decisions we make. Self-perception (including any limiting beliefs) is [...]

Is Your Mind Delaying or Driving Your Business?

Sometimes law of attraction can be a real bitch, especially when your subconscious mind is a runaway train creating circumstances that you don’t want. This notion that we create our own “realities” feels frustrating and humbling when we don’t know what thoughts are driving the train. Our minds can become like crowded train stations. [...]

Winter Reflection Photo by Artist Marielle Looking around us now in the winter, the trees are naked. Without their leaves and blooms, it’s easy to wonder if they are still alive. It may even be depressing to look at the bare limbs, as you recall the beautiful colors they once created in the [...]

Three Things You Need to Succeed When You Fail to Reach All of Your Goals

Confession: About five weeks after I wrote this inspiration-filled post about why I committed to run a third marathon, and about five weeks before my marathon, I gradually fell off the training program. I only trained up to 15 miles (instead of completing the two 20-mile runs proposed in the training schedule). So, how did I finish the full 26.2 [...]

How to Convert the Information Age from a Burden to a Gift.

Is the Information Technology Age a gift or burden? It’s up to you. Sensory overload is not the Digital Age's Fault. Last weekend, I lost my iphone in the Shenandoah Mountains.

FAQ: How are limiting beliefs formed, and why do I need help spotting them?

Most people deny they have limiting beliefs because they are held in the part of the mind that is out of our awareness. They are typically formed at an early age. Our subconscious, creative minds are dominant during the time we are focused on developing ourselves (0 to 10-12 years of age), and discernment is [...]

Finding the Valuable Coins in the Dirt

Yesterday, I was vacuuming so quickly that I inadvertently picked up some valuable coins in the dirt. It reminded me of times when I have been quick to judge and dismiss something that appeared completely useless or unwanted because I was not looking for the good or opportunity presented.
