How to Change Your Mood in a Minute!

Apr28
First, I have a confession to make: I’m a reformed news junkie: The New York Times, CNN, the local newspaper and anything else I could squeeze into the cracks of my all-too-busy life. The news made me feel knowledgeable, easy to converse with, fairly interesting and a bit of an intellectual snob. The other thing it made me was sad. Very sad. All day long I’d flash back on something I’d read or watched, and I’d feel my bo...

The One Line You MUST Cross if You Truly Want to Be Happy

Dec19
You've probably already noticed that, of late, people are 'coming out' in a myriad of ways having nothing to do with their sexual preference. People are becoming more authentic with us; more transparent with who they are and how they got to this particular place in their lives. They're sharing their back-stories, their triumph over defeat, their recovery from addiction or their tale of domestic violence. We're hearing stories about every...

Welcome to the World of Permission 2.0

Mar20
Prefer to listen? An MP3 download and Transcription are available at the end of this post. When I first coined the term Permission 2.0 in 2004, I was looked at rather oddly, and I was frequently asked to repeat myself (neither of which is actually rare). Reminiscent of the 1950’s, the notion of permission still carried with it the stigma of political incorrectness. I found that people either denied its role in their succe...

Are You Choosing or Deciding? It’s Your Choice.

Jan22
Prefer to listen? An MP3 download and Transcription are available at the end of this post. Someone recently asked me why I spend so much time talking about choice. Why it’s such a big deal to me. My answer? There’s no bigger deal than having the privilege of choosing the direction of one’s own life. Just ask anyone in our country or abroad, who doesn’t have the luxury of choosing his or her own existence becaus...

THE Most Stupid Myth About Money and Work

Jan10
There is a myth so well know amongst women, that many actually mistake it for the truth. What is it? That doing what you love doesn’t pay the big bucks: that in order to make *serious money, in order to live prosperously, you have to sell out, buy in, or give up. This is an outrageous lie! In fact, it’s crazy. It’s a lie we’re told by others, and one that (left unchecked) we repeat frequently to ourselves. Here’s what the lie s...

What Do You Want?

Dec25
Imagine, for a moment, that you’re hungry. Your tummy is growling, a headache is galloping toward you, your mood is having more ups and downs than a carnival roller coaster, and the idea of eating is eclipsing all other thoughts. Imagine, for a moment, that you race into the kitchen, throw open the fridge and devour it’s contents. Indiscriminately you pull food from the cabinets, open cans, pull apart boxes and stuff food into your ravenou...

You Were Born to Have Impact!

Dec04
The rumor is true.... I did disappear for the past three weeks. I've been cybernating (as in hibernating in cyberland). In no time at all I went from cyber klutz to cyber savvy. For those of you who know me: It's been transformational. I have a few more finishing touches to put on my website in time for its debut this coming Monday, January 4th. Until then, I wanted to share this inspiring, heart opening, hope-filled video. Enjoy and do share ...

The Great Debate

Oct11
All this talk about happiness and passion and purpose got me to thinking about what would happen if we fought for our bigness with the same gusto that we argued for our smallness. I mean what would our lives truly look like if we all reached that potential we’re always talking about? If we climbed that mountain, or wrote that poem, or started that business, or made that contribution, or dared to sit still for a moment with the only goal bein...

The Age of Happiness

Sep20
Today I learned that the publishing industry has decided that the market is glutted with books on happiness. Hmm, given the current state of affairs on Earth, I personally think that there are no amount of books on happiness that would be too many. But, then again, I’m in the business of coaching people to happiness, so I may be more than a bit biased. I did a quick search on Amazon. com which revealed that there are about 474K titles with t...
