Recently a good friend shared a picture with me and wow the flood of memories began. This reminded me to have tremendous respect and admiration for the people who are authentic, people who happily acknowledge their family and cultural roots, and who never forget where they come from. (more…)
I love a cocktail myself, but it doesn’t love me back.
A cocktail may relax me for the time being, but the next day, I always feel confused, anxious and like I am contemplating and critiquing all of my life decisions. My buddy recently told me that he refers to this feeling as the “Sunday Scaries…” the impending doom you feel after a Saturday night of boozing. (more…)
A lot of people are good at what they do. Some are even elite. A select few are completely unstoppable.
Those who are unstoppable are in their own world. They don’t compete with anyone but themselves. You never know what they will do — only that you will be forced to respond. Even though they don’t compete with you, they make you compete with them.
Are you unstoppable? By the end of this blog you will be.
Let’s get started: (more…)
Picture yourself standing in the middle of a crowded area. You’re in the heat of competition in front of 100,000 screaming people, and at least half of them aren’t cheering for you.

It’s sad to me that many people don’t have the courage or the drive to follow their heart. Often people have dreams and goals in life but they’ve already subconsciously made up their minds that these dreams and goals are not obtainable. They become content with just going through the motions in life because they believe that “this” is what life has offered them. “This” is the hand that they were dealt. “This” is their life so they better get comfortable and just get used to it. Often times, They live each day wondering about the “could of, should of, would of’s” but don’t do anything about it. (more…)
Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams to achieve, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. (more…)
