You Can’t Train Against Nature

I love watching Cesar Milan, The Dog Whisperer. And though he is sharing his thoughts and experience with dogs, much of what he says relates to humans too, including this one – you can’t train against nature. Some dogs are born to run, others to sit in our laps. Confine the herding or hunting dogs … Continue reading

Who Are You Wearing?

The big award shows – the Emmys, the Oscars, etc. – crack me up. Though they are ideally celebrating the accomplishments and work of artists, they start the evening with the superficial, “who are you wearing?” All the fanfare about who is wearing whose gowns and tuxes, who looks amazing and who will be called … Continue reading

Go For Bold!

You were born awesome. I love saying that. I love seeing people’s faces when they hear it. It isn’t just to say something flattering – it is the truth. Science, religion and philosophy rarely agree, but they all agree that we each are born with unique and amazing abilities – gifts. In other words, we are born … Continue reading

As I travel to teach, coach and speak, I hear some of the most amazing stories about how life is for people.

Life’s Too Big To Play Small

I was traveling this week – two trips. Airports are wonderful places to people watch. Sometimes, all I see is the frenetic running in all directions. But today was different. Something big was going on. Let me tell you what I mean. At virtually every turn I met, saw or spoke with someone who was … Continue reading

Make Room for New Things

We just came back from a trip to Costco – the freezer is now full. The bananas on the counter, now starting to over ripen, need a place to go to hold them for an eventual smoothie. I have to make room in the freezer. So for the bananas to go in, something will have … Continue reading

Be “the” Best vs. Be “your” Best

I remember back to when my kids played soccer in my town’s youth league. Though we all wanted our kids to play well and make a difference on the team, one parent was obsessed with their daughter being the “best.” This parent moved her daughter to teams she thought would win, paid for personalized coaching, … Continue reading
