Be the Miracle

Who among us hasn’t dreamed of being extraordinary? To be noticed. To do things no one else is doing or go beyond what has been done before. You’ve probably never verbalized you want to “Be the Miracle”. But we all have high hopes for doing something incredible. This can be both rewarding and disappointing. Exhausting […]

A Glimpse Into the Future (2028)

Forecasting the weather seems like a hit or miss proposition. That makes me wonder if forecasting the future is any more accurate. Both meteorologists and sociologists use data, computer models, historical precedent, and any number of technological tools to produce scientific projections. Yet both nature and humans can be capricious and quite subject to change. […]

Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

Ever felt like for every two steps forward you wind up taking one step back? It seems to be a frustrating – yet normal pattern of progress. I’ll stand with Robert Brault, who quipped, “An optimist is someone who figures that taking a step backward after taking a step forward is not a disaster, it’s […]

Restoring Vision and Upgrading Dreams

In the past month, I have worked with hundreds of people on vision casting. It has been interesting to note how many struggle with giving their imagination free rein – even for just a few hours. It was Einstein who said, “Creativity is intelligence having fun“. How can there be such a disconnect between vision […]

The Power and the Promise

There’s always someone who seems to do it better than you. We are all surrounded by those who are more articulate, more dynamic, better looking, wealthier, skinnier, healthier, wiser.

5 Habits to Protect Your Joy

This guest post is by my fascinating friend, Jennifer Clark, owner of Back to Center Wellness Associates. “Death is gonna catch me eventually; but I tell you what young lady!

The Undeniable Power of RESOLVE

Don’t ever give up. Don’t ever give in. Don’t ever stop trying. You have what it takes within. I have never been a runner. Matter of fact, exercise has always been sheer discipline for me and not particularly enjoyable. Yet I ran a half-marathon. I can tell you how that transpired. The benefits outweighed the cost, […]

The Storyteller

“The Storyteller whispered the story so long ago that sometimes we think it is only a dream. The words and the music that once roared with the sea, flew with the wind, vaulted over the canyons, and hung upon the stars with such abandon are still there, though the echo and even the remembrance of […]

Cherish Your Vision and Your Dreams

I am a known visionary and dreamer. There was a time when I was reluctant to trumpet that fact. I’ve been scoffed at on national radio and criticized for having my head in the clouds. But that hasn’t deterred me from dreaming. Not one bit. I recently read The Dream Manager and took the challenge author […]
