#30 - What Would Your Life Look Like If You Went All Out?

6/16/2018
More
What Would Your Life Look Like If You Went All Out? Acting on anything is a matter of priorities, and the truth is that you do have the time for the things that are most important. Sure, you may be scared, you may harbor resistance, but don't act like time or resources are stopping you from dedicating some form of practice every day. That's an excuse and a pitiful one at best.

5/10/2018
More

The more you have these at a young age the better, because they are the wake up calls that most people won't face one until they are forty; till they have spent the greater part of their life and their foundation on things that likely didn't pan out how they'd hoped.

#24 - That Confidence Game

4/5/2018
More
That Confidence Game The confidence you seek cannot help you in the same way the cart cannot pull the horse. Just like most good things in life, it comes through the method which tries the least to achieve it. The method that involves having bigger things on your mind than the outcome that can be prestigiously shown.

3/29/2018
More

This is the eternal story. Not an evil one and not a just one, but none the less the one we have. In understanding these forces at play, the forces living through our finite lives, could we perhaps hold some compassion for each other? "They" are needed as you are needed, and through a sincere recognition, we...
