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.

The PETER Moment

It was day 3 or so of my Neuro Linguistic Programming Practitioner training. There are many more days to go but fireworks are already going off in my mind and the whole class is devouring all this new information like hungry wolves. The instructors are incredible. It’s great. I couldn’t wait for the training to be over so I could be licensed to help as many people as I can and help them live better lives.  As we began to wrap up for the day, something magnificent happened…something that humbled me. It was as if the forces that be knew exactly what I needed to hear at that moment…what I needed to see…to feel.

I know… but that’s not enough : A reader’s thoughts

I have never done this before. I mean I read EVERY…yes EVERY comment that posts on the blog from readers because I am still eager to learn and you…yes…you readers teach me with your responses. Many readers write me “off record” and some are my life/motivational coaching clients…but I have never done this before….responding to a reader’s comment and using that response as the basis of a post. However, this initially off-record email I got was so directly related to my thoughts on the epilogue for the “I know…but that’s not enough” series that I feel this is the best way to do this. So I contacted her and got her permission to do so. You are reading this because she said yes. We will call her “X”… Read more

I know…but that’s not enough – Part 3

You deserve to be loved by your loved ones. You do. Is it too much to ask? Nah. You should be loved. The problem however, is that there are so many variables about love. There are so many pieces to the puzzle when it comes to getting good love. Sometimes it’s our interpretation of love that gets in the way. He brought chocolate, what you wanted was time. She offers sex and all you want is to be allowed to take off your superman cape and be vulnerable for a day.Other times, it’s our ever changing circumstances that are in the way of getting good loving. Our inability to deal with stress makes us unlovable, our insecurities cause us to always have our pistol loaded to fire away at any emotional taunting. After a while, we come to the awareness that we don’t feel loved. (Regardless of whether or not the reasons are “self” or “other” inflicted) We don’t know why or how…all we know is that we are “alone”. We don’t feel the love. We feel this black hole of disconnect.

I know…but that’s not enough – Part 2

You’ve just come to that point. That point where knowing you’re loved is not enough…that point where you want to feel loved. You need evidence. You are restless about it (and perhaps rightfully so) and you are getting the bold blood flowing… You’re ready to hold an emotional gun to our significant others’ head and demand that love. You want to tell them to get on their emotional knees and fork out the money love. We don’t even realize when these thoughts pop in and how we make these decisions. All we know is how we feel and that we don’t feel loved. Then it starts…without even thinking much… Read more

I know…but that’s not enough – Part 1

“How come the only way you know high you get me is to see how far I fall.” It’s a line from one of my favorite songs- “Heartbreak Warfare” by John Mayer. Beautiful. My version: “How come you have to see me in an emotional wreck just to prove to yourself that I care about you…how come you have to see me desperate before you know I need you?”
I think can help John…and probably you too… Read more

When I grow up, I want to be like…TIME

Yea. Time.
There are so many qualities that TIME has, that I wish I had. Just imagine what life would be like if you were like TIME. Imagine how much you could impact the lives of those around you. Imagine how the quality and value of your life would dramatically change. If you understand these qualities of TIME and apply the lessons where they fit, that just might be one of your greatest tools of self leadership and ultimately, leadership of others.

Why this obsession with Time? 7 powerful reasons… Read more
