Monday Dose Of Inspiration: 4 Fs To Give In Stressful Situations

There's a look that's been haunting me lately. Actually, it's more than a visual thing, I see it and I feel it. I ask someone how they're doing and I can see the tension in their faces. Even when their words say they're okay, their reactions and the energy surrounding them tell a different story. I'm sympathetic because I recognize that look in myself. I've gotten used to that look. In the past, I convinced myself that it's the price you pay for what you have and where you are...

Your Opinion Of Me Is None Of My Business

Embracing this one thought will strengthen you. It will transform you. It will free you. One of the most poignant lessons I've learned is that the more you dare to walk your path, the more you dream bigger, to step outside of the norm, to use your gifts and thrive; the more you are vulnerable... the more you become exposed to other people's criticisms and opinions...

It's not the first time that this man has made an appearance over the past few years. The cops have been called many times, he comes back and then after a while, he disappears...

Pay Attention!

When we’re young, we dream about the future, when we’re old, we dream about the past. In our pursuit of everything but the present moment, we miss out on the beauty of what is. It’s time to start paying attention.

We Need To Talk About Your Purpose

I recently had the privilege of hiking up to the El Chorro waterfalls, located above the town of Girón, just outside of Cuenca, Ecuador. There's nothing like standing under 1500ft of pure power to wake you up and out of your daily slumber. As the cascading water crashed down on the rocks that formed the mountains around me, my heart sped up. There was a lot of noise but all I heard was silence. All I felt was absolute joy...
