Quicksand: Blazing Saddles Revisited

It is so easy to fall into the quagmire of a dry spell. Much like quicksand, they suck you in and immobilize you. As you get deeper into them, they smother your drive, your ambition, and and ability to move in ANY direction. I speak here from experience. I’ve been in and out of dryContinue Reading

Centering

NOTE: I originally wrote this in August of last year and posted it on my other blog, “Fascial Voice.” We hear so often the term, “centering”.

Fear, The Only True Obstacle

What would it take for you to be fearless? What would your life look like if fears didn’t hold you back? Please keep these thoughts on the back burner as you read this post.

We are energetic beings. We live in an energetic universe. Those of us that have done energy work know of its power to effect change. Not long ago, my wife had her hip replaced.

The biggest step in goal setting is the smallest step. The smallest step is also the most significant, for without it, there is no attainment of the big goals. What is the Big Step? The first step!

Goal Setting Part 4: The Big Reach

Everything of substance that mankind has ever created began the same way. First there was the idea, then the vision, and finally the plan. Every building, every bridge, every book, every painting, every musical masterpiece has the same genesis. Likewise, so has every enduring business. The Big Reach is about planning. As mentioned in earlierContinue Reading
