Much of what’s going on in today’s world makes us focus on ourselves. We’re supposed to look out for our best interest, compete with others for the best job, the biggest car, and the nicest house. We’re surrounded by advertisements and media messages that encourage us to be very self-centered and ego-centrical.   When we start […]

Today, I want to talk about values. They guide our lives and are like a compass to keep us on the clear and narrow. We learned basic values as young children, and then continue to evolve and adapt them as we grow into adulthood. Along the way, things can sometimes get murky. Part of growing […]

Are you a worrier by nature? Do you spend your time worrying about anything and everything that could go wrong? I’ve been there and done that. It’s not the most pleasant or most productive use of your time. When we worry a lot, it tends to paralyze us. We’re too worried about everything we don’t know yet, […]

In yesterday’s blog post we talked about the time we spend vegging out in front of the TV or computer and how that time slips away from us. Today, I want to tackle another big-time thief – social media. Don’t get me wrong, it’s an amazing tool, but it can also be quite distracting. It doesn’t […]

Here’s a scary question for you. How much time do you spend each week sitting mindlessly in front of the TV, surfing the internet, playing video games and such? If you’re anything like the average American it’s a lot more than you’d like to admit or even think possible.   Don’t get me wrong. It’s fun to sit […]

We all get stuck in a rut sometimes. We go through the motions and have the days roll by without much fun or excitement. We are doing what we’re supposed to be doing without questioning things or changing them up. We’re all guilty of this at some point or another. We get into a comfortable […]

We live in hectic times and our most precious commodity is and always will be time. You can’t grow more of it and when it’s gone you can’t get it back.  How often do you tell yourself that you can’t do what you want to do because you don’t have the time? We all do it. We want […]

Day 7 – Your Purpose Doesn’t Have To Be Huge To Make A Difference

When we think about finding our calling or our life’s purpose, it’s easy to get caught up in these huge visions. We think that it has to be something along the lines of what Gandhi or Mother Teresa accomplished in their lifetimes. If you think that your purpose has to be this all-encompassing lifelong body […]

Finding and following your calling is a big part of living with passion & on purpose. Finding that calling though, can be a pretty big and intimidating task, particularly if you put yourself under pressure to come up with the perfect answer right here and right now.
