The Year of Magical Dreaming

Settling is Selfish

The very real thing about fear is that when we are stifled by it, we are not sharing with the world our true talents and giving forth the gifts we’ve been given. Each of us has our own very unique and special talents. One of my favorite Martin Luther King quotes: “If a man is called to be a street... Read More

because I said I would

Since 2008, I’ve read hundreds of personal development books. (You should check out the latest book I’m reading, btw … it’s amazing.) After a while, as you can imagine, you start to see similar themes. One consistent theme, discussed directly or implied, is being impeccable with your word: Randy Pausch in The Last Lecture, Don Miguel Ruiz in The Four... Read More

Don’t You Go Pointing Your Bone at Me

For as much as I’m intrigued by the placebo effect–I still can’t wait till Dr. Joe Dispenza’s new book You Are the Placebo gets to audio–the nocebo effect, although studied much more infrequently, is also fascinating.

I love his short posts, quick wit and no bs approach. He wrote, when you think, “I have no good ideas,” what you... Read More

Flow Mojo

“Most people live in a very restricted circle of their potential being. They make use of a very small portion of their possible consciousness, and of their soul’s resources in general, much like a man who, out of his whole organism, should get into a habit of using and moving only his little finger.” –The Rise of Superman by Steven...

Just Keep Showing Up

We essentially have two jobs: dream and show up. Dreaming can include things like visualization, musing, mapping, manifesting, diagramming, inventing, dialoguing, monologuing, singing, dancing, chanting, seeking flow state, seeking no state (meditation), intuitive recall, stream of consciousness writing, reading, gratitude, praying, and the list goes on. Showing up is a little different. Getting out of bed, making calls, coursework, networking,... Read More
