  • The Cardinal Quest

    23/01/2018 Duração: 18min

    Could you be your own worst enemy? If you constantly do things to betray your own goals, you need to know why. Self-knowledge gives you a 50% rate of victory against an unknown and a 100% rate of victory against self-sabotage. If we can be our own worst enemy then beating ourselves at our own game should be our cardinal quest. It's not what life hands us, but how we respond to it that shapes our future. Knowing yourself means that you are better equipped to interpret adversity and use it to your advantage. If you are responsible to find yourself, see yourself, heal yourself, correct yourself, love yourself, be yourself, honor yourself, build yourself and grow yourself...then you better know yourself.

  • The Well of Inspiration

    09/01/2018 Duração: 13min

    "Be a fountain, not a drain", has been a saying we've heard and aspired to fulfill. But we all find different environments either draining or fulfilling. We can't be a fountain if we find ourselves without the resources to stay full. It is our responsibility to identify what inspires us and what drains the life out of our motivation. Finding and collecting inspiration can give us critical clues about our own ability to inspire others. Once we identify what fills our well of inspiration we can begin to cultivate the ideal environment we need to succeed.

  • Raw Materials: Time

    01/01/2018 Duração: 15min

    We don't actually need all things we think we do to create the life we envision. In fact, the infection of perfection can inhibit our ability to risk dreams and ideas and to put forward the priorities to pursue space to create. All the master artisans throughout history were particular in the design of their Atelier' (workshop) but didn't get hung up on perfection - they prioritized the mess of the process. They didn't stall and pack up their creative methods in order to appease on-lookers. We too must recognize that there are only a few raw materials needed to dream and to DO. They are few but they are vital to identify and protect. Drink: Lady Gray by Twinings. Read: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.
