Every year, an average of 500 people worldwide are killed by elephants. That's a tiny fraction of the world's population. So, chances are good that none of…Continue

I read this sentence about 9 months ago and was affronted by its bluntness. “You don’t understand,” I wanted to yell at the author who wrote it! “That is just the problem, I DON’T have the time to do what I want to do!”
Then an unexpected thought crept into my head.…Continue

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. ~ Steve Jobs…
Searching for the space in which her creativity could breathe and be turned loose, she, like a lot of people, overlooked her own emotions and saw, instead, the need to perform, pretend, and postpone. (Jump to the…Continue

I recently spoke with a friend about a serious financial crisis he was going through. Worry was a constant, draining battle, he declared with a sigh.photo by ewar woowar
Worry is a strange creature, much like the caterpillars in the picture above. It builds its nest, using our mind to…Continue
“Quite honestly, I can’t imagine how anyone can say, “I’m weak!” and then remain so. After all, if you know it, why not fight against it?” ~ Anne Frank (15 years old)
Understanding that we are weak - and be willing to admit it - takes courage…Continue
I started to blog after realizing the power of networking with others through social media. I figured it could benefit my forthcoming book sales and it was fun. I soon discovered blogging was therapeutic and perhaps I could inspire someone, somewhere. I had no idea what it could lead to at the time.Continue
[The trick is] to realize that the pain isn’t something awful to be postponed and avoided, but a signal that you’re getting stronger — something to savor and enjoy. It’s what makes you better. ~ Aaron Swartz
I've been fighting a cold all week. It is kicking my butt and drains me of all…Continue

I recently mentioned one of my blogs to someone and after explaining the fear tactics organizations use against their employees, her response was: "Well, that's human nature." I was stunned momentarily. I had forgotten people are so busy trying to fit-in, wanting to be liked and somehow have to justify other's bullying style of actions. I had forgotten in a similar way, I had once been like her.

Can fear of success really inhibit us from moving forward? It can, and here are a few reasons why.
Some people remember the exact moment in time when man first stepped foot on the moon, or news reached them that US President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.
There are a few moments in…Continue

Only fear can defeat life. It is a clever, treacherous adversary, how well I know. It has no decency, respects no law or convention, shows no mercy. It goes for your weakest spot, which it finds with unerring ease. ~ Yann Martel, "The Life of Pi"

Much study has been done and continues to be done on the connection of the mind and the body. Scripture tells us “as a man thinks, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7) and science continues to verify this truth. Every thought and emotion we have produces specific energy and vibration that impacts the chemistry of our physical…Continue
I've come to realize that everyone is just like me, trying to make it and live out their dreams one day at a time. What stands in the way of fulfilling those dreams? FEAR!
It's not the critic that counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or whether the doer of deeds could have done them better...The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust, and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and often comes up short again and again. Who…

"Tomorrow is often the busiest day of the week." ~Spanish Proverb
Planning, goal setting, dreaming, visioning are all really great to do. But waiting until "tomorrow" to start the process is what defeats all of these things. No one and nothing can make these supposedly important things take place unless…Continue

Jesus’ disciples didn't become spiritual juggernauts overnight. They didn't really understand who Jesus was until later in His ministry. In the first century, most teachers had students—also known as disciples. These were people who put themselves in a position to learn from a master teacher. Those who followed Jesus initially viewed Him as a great teacher, but they didn't understand the fact that He was the…Continue
