Stop Complaining and Start Working

stop complaining

Stop complaining if you spend your free time watching Netflix…

Was talking to a guy the other day when I was out and he said something interesting:

“Donald Trump was given all his money.”

Oh here we go.

Yes, Trump inherited a sizable sum of money from everything I’ve read…although nowhere even close to what he is worth now.

‘So what’s your point?” I asked.

“That’s the only way you get wealthy.” the guy answered.

I just shook my head.Continue reading

Does Positive Thinking Really Work? Maybe Not

does positive thinking really work

Does positive thinking really work? Some research suggests not in the way society typically applies it

We hear it and read about it all the time.

The power of positive thinking.

Most of it centers around affirmations we’re supposed to tell ourselves:

‘I am doing this.’

‘I am a good parent.’

‘I am successful.’

It’s the process of affirming or declaring something to be, if you will.

We’ve all also had those moments when we try to pump ourselves up for a task or challenge ahead:

‘I know I can do this.’

But does positive thinking really work??

Some researchers say no…Continue reading

You Screwed it Up Again…and It’s OK


you screwed it upThey are all surprised you screwed it up.

You made a mistake.

Maybe you betrayed a friend.

Maybe you committed a criminal act.

Maybe you even committed adultery.

Maybe you even considered ending it all.

People are shocked you did the ‘unthinkable’. But maybe those very people threw stones with a vengeance…and a guilt.

We’re all so frickin’ concerned and horrified we might screw the pooch. Crash and burn. Commit an error.  Mess it up. Royally f#%$ it up.

The universe laughs at this. The universe laughs at you.

Why?Continue reading

6 Ways How to Deal with Self Doubt

how to deal with self doubt

Learning how to deal with self doubt is vital if you want to grow

We all go through it.  I mean…everyone.

The gripping anxiety of self doubt.

But not just doubt.  Self doubt and fear.  And they often go hand in hand…

Just last week, I was working on a part of my business (we’ll call it Project X) that I was overhauling to improve going forward.  This is something I really want to conquer to take my business to the next level.  It wasn’t going well and I was frustrated.  But then it started happening:  That feeling of doubt and questioning in my mind…in my body.Continue reading

Beware of the Self Appointed Expert

The self appointed expert

We’ve all been bombarded by the self appointed expert…

We’ve all had (or have them) in our life…the self appointed expert.

It’s that person who seemingly knows everything about all subjects and is always ready to let you know that they do, all the time.  And here’s the thing: they usually have no knowledge whatsoever of the subjects they speak about.

Just What is a Self Appointed Expert…or Self Appointed Authority?

Now, if you read the definition of ‘expert’, you get:

‘A person who has a comprehensive and authoritative knowledge of or skill in a particular area.’

Yep.  This person knows his or her stuff about a particular subject or field.

The self appointed expert definition according to Collins Dictionary is:

‘…having assumed authority without the agreement of others.’

In other words…Continue reading

Do You Act Like You Already Have It??

Do you act like you already have it?

Do you act like you already have what you want? (me in my rock and roll days…)

Years ago I had a friend I was in a rock band with (my previous profession was as a musician) who was, shall we say…crazy!

His name was Chris.  He was a singer and was not lacking in confidence.  Ever.  We were both starving musicians (a common occurrence) trying to climb the rock and roll industry ladder.Continue reading

‘You Have the World by the Tail’

We all have the world by the tail

‘We have the world by the tail son’, he said to me just after I snapped this pic this morning

He was a tall, older, bearded man…weathered but wise looking.

As he walked by me I said ‘good morning’ and smiled. I was drinking my coffee and feeling really good as I appreciated such a unbelievably beautiful morning in the desert (see the picture above).

‘Good morning’, he replied back and as he walked by he stared straight at me…as if to make sure I was listening. Then he said:Continue reading
