When Is It Time To Let Go Of Dreams So They Can Find You?

As I walked on the beach last night, or at least the little of the beach that was left because the tide was high, the lyrics “the tide is high but I’m holding on” played through my mind.

I’ve been holding onto a dream, sometimes too tightly and other times pretty loosely, yet still holding on. I’ve come to realize that sometimes it is best to let dreams go and let them find us, to allow them to gracefully unfold instead ...

When The Seas Of Change Swirl Around You, Will You Stand Strong?

When change happens do you fear you’ll lose yourself? This is a common fear, one I’ve shared with many of my clients. Before I removed and transformed this fear, we feared if we allowed a specific change to happen that we could lose the life we created. Lose the life we spent years building, only to risk it for something greater that we believed could be truly possible.

Our lives can be a constant sea of change. This change can be ...

Love at Work Really? Really!

What is your initial reaction when you hear that successful CEOs, owners and executives want more fulfillment, love and meaning in their businesses, not just their lives?  If your response is, “Love at work really – come on, work is not the place for love!”   Then possibly it’s simply a difference in definitions, beliefs and expectations of love that creates this misunderstanding.  Before you read on it would be helpful for you to consider and answer:

When You’re Meant For Even Greater Things, Which Path Will You Choose?

When You’re Meant For Even Greater Things, Which Path Will You Choose?

A time comes in our lives when we reach a major crossroad or what I call a defining moment. These moments are defining because the choice made is an immediate, life-altering decision that impacts our present and shifts the direction of our future. It is a choice that requires courage regardless of which path you choose.

One choice is to follow that gnawing sense deep within that believes you are not achieving your full potential, that you are meant for even ...

Is It Time To Change?

Things happen in life that encourage and sometimes demand we change.  These things range from subtle messages to significant events to catastrophic losses with several iterations in between.  Like me, I’m confident you’ve had many of these opportunities to change too.

While these events happen to get our attention unfortunately it’s common for the underlying message to be unnoticed, the lesson to go unlearned and/or the direction to be unchanged.
