Your life is begging for this…NOW

You’re talented but restless
 
You’re made for more but confused 
 
You have dreams but no vision
 
You need to figure out the WHEN, WHAT, WHERE, HOW, WHO…

This Thing is Everything – New Life Resolutions Pt 8


At the start of every year, I publish a post in the New Life Resolutions series… Its one of the most important posts of any year. I have done this for the past 7 years and the idea behind the series was born out of a response to (and as an alternative for) New Year Resolutions.

Meeting (and Keeping) Quality People in Your Life


By now, most people fundamentally understand the value of being surrounded by quality people. In fact, many people have it as a resolution for the year.

You’ve heard quotes like:
“Show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are” OR “You are an average of your 5 closest friends”

I DON’T Wish You a Happy New Year: New LIFE Resolutions Pt. 7


Because happiness is not enough…
Because you can be confused and happy.

No. I don’t wish you a Happy New Year. What I REALLY wish you…is a year of MEANINGFUL PROGRESS. PROGRESS. PROGRESS. A “kick butt-destiny changing-dream building-kick doors open” year.

Now before you get all juiced up and fired up…I need to bring you down from cloud 9 and tell you the truth:

Socio-relational Addictions You Might Not Know You Have (and How They’re Messing with Your Life)


Sure there are the usual suspects when we talk about addiction. You know them well. Alcohol, Drugs, Pornography and all that.
I need to tell you though, that there are some socio-relational addictions (addictions that have to do with our social life and our relationships) that I perceive many people are dealing with, without even knowing the issue exists.
