We underestimate the power of the mind and, more specifically, our thoughts in shaping our lives so frequently now that I’m not sure many of us are even trying anymore. We can think anything we want, relatively speaking, and yet how few of us actually try to think the truth. Instead, we allow all sorts […]
I am a personal development and relationship coach, blogger, speaker, and thinker. And I recognize that realizing our transformative potential is the result of the right mindset. I change mindsets.
We live in a society of low (and often twisted) expectations. And sadly, in many respects, it’s only getting worse. In our increasingly smug culture, most of our societal expectations are setting us up for personal and professional failure. And, other than our general dissatisfaction with life, many of us struggle to know it because […]
Are we justified in our indignation of Hollywood, because I’m struggling to see much of a difference between them and us?
We have to be very careful living in a society in which the voices of reason are constantly being shouted down and drowned out – a society that values, almost overwhelmingly, vice at the expense of virtue. Because no one is immune to the influence of their surroundings. It is like second-hand smoking. Regardless of […]
If you’re like most people, you’re probably waiting for someone or something to miraculously intervene to save you from the mediocrity and despair of your life. In many ways, we’re actually conditioned to believe in the naivety of this supposition. The truth, however, is that no one is coming to save you, at least not […]
Paradoxically, people are unhappy because they don’t know how to realize the purpose of their lives; which, incidentally, is to be happy.

I had returned home from work and had planned on going for a jog when my four-year old daughter began begging to go with me. I was putting on my running shoes while attempting to help her understand that she couldn’t go jogging with me because she wouldn’t be able to keep up. She began […]
I’ve noticed an uptick in the personal development world of ‘gurus’ becoming increasingly more comfortable using four-letter words. I guess it’s what the cool kids are doing these days. And I’m not talking about the occasional use of colorful words like hell or damn, but rather the repeated use of, for example, the f-word. In […]
I believe the idiom “it takes two to tango” is dangerous, relatively speaking. Generally, this idiom is used to suggest that in a struggling relationship both parties are equally to blame. Of course, there are instances in which this is true. However, it is delusional to think that another’s misdeeds justify our own, which is […]
Certainly, there is no decision more important or more consequential than in choosing whom to marry. In fact, it is the single greatest factor in determining our overall success and happiness in life. I don’t care how well everything else might be going in your life, if your marriage is struggling, my friend, enduring happiness […]
