Difficult Things

Difficult Things

Numerous actors, athletes and performers have told us of the years that it took to develop and to be recognized for their abilities. Sometimes we forget especially as we get older, how long it takes to become really great and dynamic at something. The people that tend to achieve their goals are the people that are willing to be uncomfortable and rejected at times.

I remember somewhere along the way, I heard that the Beatles were told at some point in their career that no one would be interested in one more rock and roll group and doing the noisy banging on guitars. Of course, we know the outcome to this story. Every day give a few minutes to the goal or the project and pay attention to the people and events that will start coming together in new way. Take a small risk in a new direction and see if life meets you half way. Do not be concerned with the fear that naturally comes with it. Too many people stop a new adventure because of the inability to feel vulnerable.

When I first started to speak, I was terrified of being in front of an audience. My legs would shake, I would get sick, and I would hope that they would cancel the event so I wouldn’t have to go. I thought of everything I could to be worried and afraid. One day I realized that if I was going to make a living as a speaker that I had better let go of the drama before it took a toll on my health; and so the SHIFT occurred. Today I am a prolific keynote speaker, who ironically, teaches others how to speak with confidence.

What could you dare to do and how can you take a new step in that direction starting today?

You can make it happen!

Breaking Patterns That No Longer Work

Breaking Patterns That No Longer Work

We will always have one common thread on our journey: who we are being and what we are becoming. Those who continue to repeat everything will have the same everything they say they no longer want. Do you have any repetitive patterns in your life? If so, what are they? Where did these patterns begin, and what actions…

Why is Change Hard?

Why is Change Hard?

We often are determined to make change hard. I once saw a couple that was having major problems because the wife did not want to clean the house and the husband did not think it was his job. Except for this one thing, they told me, they were very happy. I said to them, “You…

The Kingdom is Yours

The Kingdom is Yours

Being angry and disconnected from the Creator who gave you life is like having a parent who, unbeknownst to you, is very, very rich. You have denied yourself a relationship with this parent all your life, and one day you realize that you could have inherited amazing riches had you been willing to open your…
