It seems like we’re always struggling with some area of our lives. We struggle to lose more weight. We struggle to do more meaningful and important work. We struggle to make more money (lots more!). We struggle to be better partners and stellar parents. We struggle to be more productive with our time and not waste it. The struggle is real and for most of us it feels natural. But is it?
Does water struggle to flow?
Does grass struggle to grow?
Does wind struggle to blow?
Does rain struggle to fall?
Does the sun struggle to shine?
Of course not! So why do we struggle to succeed?
Do you have some dreams that have yet become a reality? Why? What’s keeping you from making them happen? If you’re wanting this to be the year that closes the gap between your dreams and your reality then this video is for you!
The truth is, there’s a silent killer that might be robbing you of the life you really desire and deserve. It’s sneaky. It’s insidious. And it’s always there…tempting us away from what really matters to us and keeping us stuck. What is it?
Well, I guess I’ve always known what it was but I met it face-to-face on the top of a sand dune at Lake Michigan last year. I tell you all about it in the video…
If you’re like me, you’re thinking about 2018. Most of us do around this time of year. Every New Year is time’s great gift of a new beginning. It allows and encourages us to hit the reset button and get a fresh start which is especially appreciated if your year didn’t go how you thought it would. But where do you start? With so many opportunities, so many options, and so many distractions how can you avoid making a mistake that will cost you more time and leave you no closer to making the life of your dreams a reality?
If you want to avoid the biggest mistake I see high performers make when setting their course for the year ahead then allow me to show you a surefire way to make your New Year better than your last.
Have you ever noticed that some trees just don’t seem to let go of their leaves? I mean, it’s not like they don’t know the winter is coming and is almost completely upon us. Am I right? But still they hold tight to their last few leaves, waiting for that moment that makes it absolutely necessary for them to completely enter in their season of darkness. It makes me wonder, are we not also the same way? Do we not also have leaves (old growth) that need to die in order for new life to spring forth after a season of winter?
This picture was taken just outside my home on my morning walk. I took it because it struck me just how important the lesson was that nature is trying to teach us if we’ll only be present enough to listen.
The answer, of course, is yes. Winter is a season that reminds us that it’s time to let go of our old leaves so that new life can emerge from within us.
Are you a parent who’s ever been accused of over-reacting? If so, then this video is for you! I’m telling the story of one of my biggest lessons from a recent trip with my son to Spain and how him being bullied taught me something that I had to share with you.
Sometimes on our parenting journey we get surprised by a difficult situation that our kids are going through. And sometimes those situations can help us learn a LOT about ourselves…
Even if you’re not a parent, you’ll still get something from this story that will help you shortcut your success in everyday life and avoid one of the biggest mistakes so many of us make in our interactions with others.
Watch me tell the story and be sure to tell me what you think in the comments!
