Regret

I attended a funeral of a dear friend yesterday. I’ve gotten to the point in life where I don’t generally attend “celebrations of life” because I have my own way of resolving losing someone. This one I was called to because for some reason I couldn’t create resolve. This particular friend was someone I had…

Big Bazooka’s

Have you guys ever been in a situation where your acting in opposition with your soul? If you could see me you’d be seeing me raising my hand. I choose to believe that humanity is for the most part good, and at our core self we know what is right and what is wrong. Yet…

Liberate

There have been many times in my life when I have felt depleted. I’m not sure about men because I’m not one, but for women most of us know about “the wonder woman complex”. Yes, it’s true I have that, and so do many people I know. It’s been hard to balance work and home…

Why Why????

Ok, by now we all know I am not a lover of goal setting because most people are not taught how to set the goal. We’ve been taught that the goal is going to lead us to some sort of destination, and while that may be true, if we have no purpose or no why…

Mastery

There is a book I read a few years back written by author Malcolm Gladwell called The Outliers. It was a interesting book based on a theory that it take 10,000 hours to achieve Mastery. Gladwell gives examples like Steve Jobs and The Beatles to prove his theory that it takes time to master a…

Reflection and Success

Often times we get to a point in life where we are confused. What do we do next? Where do we go from here? What’s our purpose? What’s our contribution? What we need is clarity, and clarity only comes when we take time to reflect. We all have those times that are game changers. Game…

My thought for the day.

Almost everyone would agree that the an organizations biggest asset is the people that work within the organization. After all without a team, a tribe, a staff how would an organization function? Many people feel that “their value” is based on what an organization pays them. The MVP gets the biggest piece of the pie…

The Infinite Game

“Only those who have learned the power of sincere and selfless contribution have learned the power of fulfillment” – Tony Robbins The word fulfill means to make full or to satisfy. I associate fulfillment with contentment, or a state of being happy with ones life. When we think about our lives in the sense of…

How To Achieve Loyalty

I belong to a few business groups both online and live and in person. People seem to really be stumped on how to motivate others to; get the work done, grow a business, win the game, get good grades, achieve the goal, succeed. I hear the word “energy sucks” a lot. How’d ya like to…

Why Women are Natural Leaders.

In the 60’s the women’s movement defined the idea that women could have “it all”.  When I think about that statement I wonder what “having it all” really meant. Over the past 55 or more years women embarked on an endeavor to have it all, myself included. It’s really been a defiant move against men…

What’s Your Monster?

I was in the 4th grade when I decided that reading was not one on my skills. I didn’t consider myself a very smart person. I was never a very great student. Mostly because I had a hard time focusing. I would begin reading and my mind would just wonder off…LOL. I guess I’ve always…

In The Reflection Of Steel

“An idealistic heart can often create a doubters mind”    – Kim Hansen I have always been an idealist. This is one of my strengths, which I’ve been told is also a weakness. I see the best in people. What they can become instead of who they are. It is also a source of frustration for…
