Self-Awareness: What You Don’t Know Could Hurt You

It’s scary how rare self-awareness is. Scary. One of the best examples of this truth was seen on American Idol. I used to love watching Idol, but I normally bailed on the show after the audition phase. I watched the entire season where Jordin Sparks won because she was from Phoenix, where I was living […]

Exercising Your Five Most Important Muscles

Are you happy? Let me be more specific. I’m not wondering if you skipped down the sidewalk today or if you’ve had a good deep laugh this morning. Are you satisfied with where you are? Are you where thought you would be? Content? I don’t think it has ever been more difficult to be satisfied and […]

7 Steps to Radically Change Your Friendships

Did you know who you’re with changes how you experience life? Scientific research has proven laughter is contagious and it grows in groups. (This explains why we laugh louder when we watch funny movies with friends versus when we watch them alone). We cheer louder and more intensely feel the action in sporting events when […]

The Resistance: 7 Ways You Can Stand Against the Wind

Have you ever been to Vegas? One of my favorite activities growing up was going to a Pirate Show. (I grew up in Las Vegas and the show was free!) If you’ve ever been to Las Vegas or seen pictures, you’ve likely discovered the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino. Steve Wynn is the brains behind […]

Be Present (Even When It’s the Last Thing You Want)

“Did she really just do that?” Those words flew through my mind one afternoon in the checkout line. My wife and I were shopping a local market. As we stood in the checkout line, the clerk scanned our items and we waited for the total bill. I scrolled through my emails on my smartphone, as […]

Preparation: What We Want in a Season We Hate

Aristotle once said, “Be kind, for everyone you meet is in a great battle.” Are you in a battle today? Each of us comes from a different background. Yet, one of the things which unites us is pain. Struggle. Suffering. While these occur for us at varying degrees, we’ve all been wounded, defeated and hurt. The […]

2016 Olympics: 3 Lessons from the Games in Rio

Are you an Olympics fan? The Olympics have a power to pull in even those people who wouldn’t consider themselves sports fans. Maybe it is the compelling story lines or the patriotism. Maybe it’s the intrigue of seeing if anyone will get sick from the green swimming pools. (I know some of you twisted people […]

Unlearn: A New Perspective On Change and Growth

Have you ever developed a bad habit which you had to unlearn later? Like you started chewing on one side of your mouth because of a toothache but never stopped? Or you hit the snooze button leaving you in a rush every morning? One bad habit has nagged me for years. I started eating quickly […]

Forgiveness: Because Ignoring the Pain Isn’t Working

At the beginning of 2016, I made a prediction while teaching a big group. “I promise you two things will happen this year – someone will disappoint you and you will disappoint someone else.” Now, this wasn’t the level of Nostradamus and no sports book in Vegas would’ve taken the bet. But I believed it. I’m […]

Compass or Map? Finding Our Way Forward

When was the last time you got lost? I mean, really lost! Our family moved to a new city recently and I’ve been really intentional about making sure I know where I’m going as I venture out and explore. I don’t like getting lost and I’m grateful I have ended up where I needed to […]
