Are You Chasing Happiness or Fulfillment?

How many of us yearn to be truly happy in life? I would guess pretty much all of us! It's a noble and aspirational pursuit. But are we chasing happiness? Do we feel as though we are going after a moving target? For instance, do you hear yourself saying any of these things: 'once I get this, or once I have that, or once I achieve this goal I will be happy'? Again, we should all be able to have our moments of happiness, but I want to challenge the notion of whether or not it is worth chasing...

When Will “Someday” be Today?

We all have big dreams and aspirations to do great things. And yet, how often do we convince ourselves that "today" is just not the right day to take action?  Someday, but not today. How does putting these things off serve us? And what if someday never comes?

Who is Standing in Your Shadow?

How many of us have risen out of someone's shadow in our lives or careers? A parent, boss, mentor, teacher, or coach... They prepared us to step out of their shadow and take the lead in our own life. Take a moment a think of who those people are in your life... Now, ask yourself "who is standing in MY shadow right now?"

Are you a Future Legend?

What does the future hold for you? What does the future hold for any of us? Will it be filled with memories of great accomplishments, experiences and realized goals, or will it be filled with regret for not doing the things that truly mattered? Since we don't really know what the future has in store for us, perhaps the more appropriate question is what do we believe that we can do, be and become in the future? So, what do you think? Are you a future legend?

Embrace New Beginnings

Often times it is tough to close the door on one phase of our life or even one event in our life.  Endings are difficult - no doubt about it. Whether that ending is a season of life where you came away with the championship, or ended up winless, the fear of what's next can be very real. During times like these, we must remind ourselves that every ending is the opportunity for a new beginning.  A fresh start that is full of new possibilities. Where are you in our own cycle of endings and new beginnings?  Are you stuck in the past - afraid to let go, or are you hungry and ready to embrace a new beginning and all the opportunity and possibility that comes with it?

Time for a Detox

We are surrounded by incredible resources - foods, technology, information, entertainment, etc. - all of which can have a positive impact and influence on our lives... in moderation. However, when things like social media, sugary foods, caffeinated beverages, streaming media, 24/7 news feeds become so ingrained in our lives, we run the risk of becoming overwhelmed, burnt out, and just plain unhealthy. Sometimes... it's time for a detox.
