If we understand how we got to the unfavorable destination we are in, then we can trace our steps back. If we know how we got to the favorable destination we are in, then we can decipher how to stay there or go even higher. As a certified Neuro Linguistic Programming Practitioner and Motivational Coach, I am always looking to helping people answer tough questions about relationships, leadership, communication, personal growth, motivation, and faith. You’re in for a good thing. I hope that you meet that better version of yourself here.
What’s the point of praying or worshiping right now? I don’t feel like it and I’m pretty sure that since I haven’t done either one the way I know I should lately, neither one will rise past my ceiling.
I recently had a conversation with a friend and we both started talking about this feeling.
I don’t know about you…but sometimes I feel like my faith is running on empty. Like if I prayed right then and then, God would call my bluff and shake his head at me. You’ve probably been there before…where you feel like you are disconnected from God and somehow just going through the motions. Read more
Sexual Temptation.This is just one of THOSE topics. We dont talk about it enough and when we do talk about it, men typically dont leave this conversation feeling empowered or encouraged. More like Guilty.
It’s like this awkward place no one wants to go…this box where we both (a) somehow assume it is a male problem and (b) somehow believe that Godly Christian men should be allergic to sexual temptation, and the ones who feel tempted are obviously not Christian enough. Read more
Yes. I am going to go there. Why? Because the issue of timing, proposal, and “taking things to the next level” is one of the most frustrating and confusing aspects of dating.
Both men and women see this as a “very touchy” issue. Women are frustrated because they think men just stall for no good reason and Men are frustrated because they feel the pressure to propose and their reasons for waiting never seem to be good enough.
Women are frustrated because it just seems so logical and easy to “take it to the next level”, and Men are frustrated because they cant seem to properly articulate the deeper reasons why “popping the question” is not as easy as it sounds.
It’s a mess. Read more
Tony Robbins said it best. “Life is the dance between what we fear the most and what we want the most.”
I recently published an article on fear titled “Fear may be secretly destroying your life and relationships…See how and conquer it”. It explored the different ways fear creeps in and holds us back from our best relationships and lives.
Someone read the article and asked a very important question: “How does one balance between fear and being careful?”
As I thought about that, I started to get even deeper perspective on fear.
Here is what I have come to find out about the balance between fear and caution in life and relationships. Read more
Fear is nasty. It doesn’t play fair with you and it is out to kill you. I don’t think I could have made that lighter. It uses every method available within itself to cripple you and make you miserable. It wants to make your relationships and your life suck and snuff the life out of you…..and that’s not even the scariest part…. Read more
Part 1 dealt with the first few. This is another set of critical behaviors and thought processes that men bring to a relationship AT THE START that are just incredible advantages for the relationship.
I know how this sounds already. Men…better at something that has to do with relationships? What?
Again, it doesn’t mean that men are better AT relationships (not even a little bit) but GOING IN…at the start, the mentality most men come in with could really help set the foundation for a healthy relationship. Read more
