Why Do We Resist the Process of Life?

Resistance. A very common automatic response to what doesn’t “feel good.” It shows up in all areas of our life on a daily basis. Relationships, occupations, driving on the road, standing in line, our general interactions with people, etc. You name it. It is there at some point. When Jim asked me to write another […]

Do What You Love!

Passion is actually doing what you love. It could be wanting to be a professional golfer or as simple as having a quiet life, living in a small cabin in a rural area, and going golfing every day. In both cases, it’s your passion that’s driving you. Some people will say that the person wanting […]

Experience Can Be The Best Teacher

Experience can be defined as “something personally encountered, undergone, or lived through.” I think all of us could agree on that definition. Only you can fully know and understand your past and present experiences and how they have affected you on many different levels of your life. You can try to explain them to others in […]

Come on, Get Up

There is a great saying: “It Doesn’t Matter How Many Times You Fall. What Matters is How Many Times You Get Up”. Life throws a lot of things your way. It could be medical, family, work, etc. And the list goes on. There are going to be a lot of struggles in life and many […]

The Power of a Smile

Power behind the Smile

Where Are The Men?

This question took shape in my mind while preparing breakfast for my partner one morning. We were discussing the coronavirus (Covid-19). The lack of action by the president of the United States is a glaring example of a man not taking charge of a dire situation. Everyone in the entire world is concerned about this […]

Why is Personal Growth such an Important Aspect in Life?

What is personal growth and what does that mean? Personal growth is an ongoing process of understanding yourself on a deeper level in your life from where you stand right now. It encompasses maturity, perception, and overall happiness in life. It can make a strong impact on your emotional, physical, and spiritual health. It creates […]

Do Companies Have Leadership Positions?

Have you ever seen an opening at a company for leadership positions? I’ve seen openings for a supervisor, manager, director, etc. but never an opening for a leader. Even in sports, there are openings for a wide range of coaches from a position coach to the head coach. But once again, I’ve never heard of […]

Competency

How Does One Develop Competency? First of all, what is ‘competency”? Webster defines it as “the quality or state of having sufficient knowledge, judgment, skill, or strength”. We all want to be competent in what we do from a child learning how to walk, to and adult learning a new skill, such as developing websites, […]

Wow, What I Took for Granted

Changing World

The world as we knew it has changed since the outbreak of the coronavirus. My personal life has changed and it is amazing the things I took for granted that have either changed or temporarily disappeared. The simple things of just going to the grocery store or bank have changed.  Other things such as going […]
