You Didn’t Start Acting This Way the Day You Came Out of Your Mom

I have a friend who’s in several Entrepreneur masterminds… but confessed to me he never feels comfortable in them. I was actually shocked to hear this successful CEO doesn’t feel comfortable around other people (who aren’t his family or super close friends) in general, almost all the time. He feels weird, like he can’t fully […]

Why the people who want to change the most often have the hardest time changing

Some people want to change, or heal, or get better, or improve SO badly… …they try and invest in EVERYTHING. They take the courses, read the books, visit all the professionals, sign up for all the seminars. They bounce from tactic to tactic to tactic, investing their time and money into things that appear to […]

As an adult, you can uncover clues about ‘Why You Are the Way You Are’ when you listen to your parents talk

I remember getting a text from my mom on the way home from the gym a few weeks ago. At the beginning of a particularly booked-out week, she’d asked if I wanted to catch up on the phone and talk. I told her it wasn’t a good week to talk, I was unusually slammed, but […]

Here’s What That Badass, Beautiful, Powerhouse of a Businesswoman REALLY Thought of Me…

Last night I found out “the truth” of what had ACTUALLY been going through someone’s mind over the past 18 months. See, about about a year and a half ago I was at this really amazing event. I knew almost NO ONE there. At one point, as I was standing around, drink in hand, I […]

The Realization That Allowed Me To Stop Hating My Body For The First Time Ever

I’ve always drawn a clear line: I can help with nearly any mind/thinking/mindset challenge you have… UNLESS IT’S RELATED TO THE BODY. If you’ve got a body challenge, I send you elsewhere. I’ve never understood body stuff. Then, I had a hit-me-over-the-head-and-knock-me-down realization about my body that looks like it’ll change the direction of the […]

The One Question That Can Uncover Hidden Blocks Preventing You From Experiencing Change, Relief, or Progress

This week, two friends of mine broke through long-term blocks that’d been keeping them stuck for YEARS. The magic question that allowed them to do it was simple. Its power lay in how it got them to explore the -hidden- perceived negatives of getting exactly what they wanted: “What would happen to you if you […]

A Hidden (But Super Common) Cause of Procrastination

Oftentimes, books and coaches suggest procrastination is a result of poor time-management skills… or less-than-stellar work habits… or lack of focus… or laziness… or “just not really wanting it.” What we’ve seen (over and over and over again) this year is a large number of people who avoid work and procrastinate for exactly NONE of […]

Living Life As an Ex-Perfectionist

(And before you ask: Yes, this story is real with no exaggerations) A while back I gave a virtual keynote presentation to a group of entrepreneurs. The moment before the talk started, I watched my desktop freeze. Oh boy. No worries, I’ll just use my laptop. 25 minutes into the conversation, my laptop screen dies. […]

You may actually NOT be an introvert

A guy I know, we’ll call him Sam, worked as a programmer. For nearly a decade and a half, his entire identity was, “I’m an introvert. And I don’t really like people.” He insisted he was an introvert because: he abhorred the idea of going to social events he’d taken many personality tests (including Meyers […]
