Stop Waiting.

The time is always now!

For what, you ask?…

Happiness and fulfillment! Millions, perhaps billions have missed out because of a misunderstanding on where the opportunity is. And many more left earth without understanding this one key concept. They expected that tomorrow would happen and that the pains and fears of their yesterday’s would suddenly and magically clear up. But procrastination, they discovered, is a lie and destroyer of dreams, lives, and futures.

Peace, joy, love, fulfillment, abundance, and happiness all live in the NOW! This truth is easily observable. Study the lives of successful people, anywhere- from great business leaders, standout achievers, world-class creators, and spiritual masters. Here’s what you’ll discover. They ALL take advantage of the present moment. They live there. They act now.  And much of what they strive to do is focused on improving the effectiveness and quality of their connection to the present moment. Why?… Because opportunity lives there.

The next move. The right investment. Peace. Enlightenment. It’s all there.

They know the wellspring of meaning, success, and abundance is the present moment. So if you have a dream, goal, or vision for your success and happiness and are not acting on it- get started. NOW! If you’re afraid to leap, that’s ok. Just simply take a step. Any step, even a baby step. What’s important is that you move forward. You’re willingness to act NOW is what matters. This starts the process to unleash the magic and power of the present moment!

Amazing Outside, Amazing Inside Too

Why is it so easy to be amazed by the beauty outside of ourselves and not see it within?…

Think of the last time you looked at a mountain, coastline, or bird in flight and thought, “that’s just not right.”

Likely that hasn’t happened. If it has, oh well. Move along to the next article.  

The reason that doesn’t happen is it’s obvious that nature doesn’t make mistakes. But why are we’re so quick to exclude ourselves from that mix? We are also a part of nature!  We are packed full of amazing just like everything else we see in life. Granting ourselves this simple yet important courtesy is a powerfully positive act. If we refuse to do it, we deny our very nature.  And then we suffer.  

So do yourself a favor. If you are judging yourself, stop. If you’re telling yourself that you’re somehow uniquely flawed, broken, or incapable, STOP.  You are not.  You are exactly who and what you’re supposed to be. Start giving yourself the credit you deserve. You are a truly remarkable being.  You and I have been granted a gift that separates us from the rest of the animal kingdom (or so it seems). We are able to see and acknowledge the beauty of all things! In case you missed it, that’s sorta a rarity!

So the next time you pause to take in a mind blowing sunset, a picture-perfect landscape, or any other of the billions of miracles of life, save some awe and wonderment for yourself!

Amazing outside, amazing inside too!

Jump. Today and Everday

Every day we have to jump.

But who do we jump for? And why? For whom do you take the risk?

Questions like these can help blow through the barriers and fears that comes with taking risks for ourselves in life. There are risks, always, but the reality is that we take risks daily for others that don’t benefit us at all. The safety we like to imagine comes from depending on others is an illusion keep us from taking any true risk. We are equally susceptible to loss and failure living to build some one else’s dream. But the real risk comes in living out a life where we have cheated ourselves of our dreams and growth because of our FEAR of FEAR itself.

Jump today folks. Jump!

Life Seeks Adventure.

What does it mean to be alive?.. To truly connect, grow, and evolve our lives and relationships?

It’s easy to bury powerful questions like these while attending to our daily lives. Life can become a relentless pursuit of the things we hope and imagine will deliver us our dreams. One way to bypass the chase and recharge your body, mind, and spirit is to PLUG back into the basics. And I mean the basic basics. Go primal! Unwind by allowing yourself to engage the thrill of a genuine adventure. So fire up your instincts, you were created to explore! Each of us is hard wired to not to just survive – BUT THRIVE! And adventure is the gateway to thriving. Or if you’re already fully engaged in a purposeful life, give yourself permission to do things differently. Even if just for a couple of days, shift and seek out an entirely new adventure. Learning happens in the space EXPLORATION, so it’s important to try things that are NEW. LIFE surges and seeks out the UNKNOWN spaces to make use of them. Life’s very purpose is to thrive there! Apply this to your own life. Supercharge your success and happiness journey by diving into a true unknown. Fire up your spirit for a genuine adventure!

Don’t quit, let go!

How do I know when it’s time double down on a commitment or push through? I had to learn this lesson the hard way. At 19 I voluntarily exited the Navy SEALS program. I secretly languished over my decision for months before ringing out.

One thing I came to realize is there’s a big difference between quitting and letting go.

Quitting is often a byproduct of fear. Because I feel stuck or overwhelmed I say, “I guess I was never meant to do this!” So I create a phony belief to support my fears and self doubt. I AVOID the pain of the moment as well as a confrontation with my false beliefs.

So how can I tell a desire to QUIT from a genuine need to let go? Consider these guidelines:A quit always detracts from the self. Power, energy, confidence, and self esteem is drained. I lose the I need energy to live my life and fulfill my dreams.

Letting go, on the other hand, is life affirming – an investment in the self. As I move forward I GAIN ENERGY, confidence, and the clarity needed to realize my dreams. 

We are all human. People make mistakes. It’s healthy to acknowledge that fact. By letting go I allow myself to be flexible and use my choices to embrace opportunities that better honor and serve my needs. Adjustments are part of a path to purpose. Letting go isn’t a quit. It’s often a very difficult step. It takes COURAGE TO INVEST IN A MORE AUTHENTIC AND BETTER ME. The EGO would prefer that we believe we don’t make mistakes.

 
So if you are considering stepping away from a commitment -first off, don’t rush! Good decisions are SLOW in the making. If you hitch your wagon to a passing feeling, you could be in for a painful ride. So ask yourself “do I have a larger vision I’m moving towards? Does it serve, honor, and empower a better me. Can I better serve those those I love? If the answer is YES you are likely preparing to LET GO.  

And do BE AWARE because big steps like these can generate alot of fear. It takes courage to adjust and carve out an AUTHENTIC path. Also be prepared for judgement. Just because you’re aligned with your vision doesn’t mean others are. Remind yourself that the thoughts and opinions of others are OUTSIDE your control. Falling into the trap of doing things to make others happy will get you stuck all over again.
