A secret to writing even when you don’t feel worthy

One of the hardest things about writing is saying something worth sitting down to write. I know. I’m feeling it right now, as I’m trying to write this. And that’s the thing about writing; it’s often based on our feelings. When we write, we can feel not only that our work isn’t worthy enough, but…More

Blog change

If we don’t evolve, we die. Or, at least, we stagnate. That also goes for this blog. So, I’m shaking things up. For a while now I’ve felt like I’m not giving you my very best with my writing here. Sorry. But it’s true. And now, I want to do something about it. I’ve wanted…More

A Way Towards Prosperity and Peace

Worrying is such a waste of time. Your mind is consumed with all of the things you can’t control: the future, the pandemic, your kids.

Make the time to do what you love by thinking like this

Sometimes we can think that we don’t have the time to pursue what we’ve always wanted to do. But, you do. You always do. Do you know why? Because following our dream is a choice. You can choose to reprioritize your time, what you do with it, how you fill it. Stop saying yes to…More

You need to know this about failure to succeed

Failing isn’t just failure. It’s a sign that you are trying, attempting—alive. When you fail, it doesn’t mean you’re silly or a loser or even a failure. No. It says you tried doing something outside of your comfort zone. It means you’re an explorer, adventurer, believer. You’re courageous. You know that life isn’t just about…More

To succeed you need to know this

Failure is a part of the process of succeeding. You can’t have one without the other. So don’t despair when you don’t see the results you want, make a mistake on that project, or fail to find the right answer. Learn from it. Grow from it. Walk away stronger, smarter, better, and persist in pushing…More

This is one of the smartest things you can do

It’s easy to feel stupid when you’re trying something new. But you’re not. I’ve been there. I felt that when I started this blog, my businesses, and pretty much every other venture I’ve tried. But you are not stupid for trying. It would be stupid not to. There are too many people who’ve lived halfhearted…More

One of the best ways to get a growth mindset

Growth happens when we try something new. But starting that new thing can be difficult; sometimes it feels impossible. It doesn’t have to be that way, though. You can break free and grow in ways you never thought possible by doing this.   Experimenting. More

One of the best things you can do to create

Sometimes to make creative work, the thing we need most is this. Rest. You’re at your desk, sweating (metaphorically) and pounding away (literally) trying to get a good idea, but the only thing you produce is nothing. “Maybe I just need to work harder,” you might say to yourself. And still, nothing happens. So you…More

This is the best way to see your story

The story of your life is unfolding right now, at this very moment. Choose what you will do today, how you will invest your time, what you will learn, how you will grow, who you will be. The pen is in your hand; the ink is flowing. Tell your story. Tell it the way you…More
