A few years ago, I started signing off on emails with, “Make it a wonderful day!” I originally wrote, “I hope you have a great day!” but realized that wasn’t appropriate to an audience interested in personal development.

I’m still an avid soccer player although I’m well past my prime. One difference that has become obvious to me over the years between those who make goals and those who never do is the willingness to take a shot. It’s the same difference between those who are wildly successful in life and those who

I recently ran into this little comic on Reddit. I love this little sketch because it’s exactly like life. When we get outside our comfort zone, it’s…uncomfortable! On the other hand, if you look closely at the comic, you’ll notice that the little red comfort box is just a little larger after the guy gets

People always want to become the best versions of themselves. While it is easy to create goals, like eat healthily, be fit, and become a better person, they are challenging to achieve.

I visit with a steady stream of business owners and CEOs as a business coach. Nine times out of ten, I find that they are overcomplicating their lives and need to do LESS rather than MORE to improve their results. One of the richest men in the world, Warren Buffett had a 5/25 rule. Write

If you’re in your twenties, it’s possible you feel torn. Some people are telling you that you have “all the time in the world” while others are pressuring you to make big decisions. It’s difficult to know what exactly you’re supposed to do with this decade. Neither camp is completely right and neither is completely

It took me a long time to find “my people” and embrace who I am. Even though tens of thousands of people follow me for some reason, I’m an introvert and admittedly a bit of a nerd. I don’t like going into social situations where we talk about the weather for an hour or go

I’ve started many groups over the years. An online Toastmasters club where people become better speakers, business owners’ groups, church groups, pick up soccer groups, fitness groups, and this site with all the associated social media groups. I want to tell you that it’s easy to start new things when you know how, but that’s

As an executive and business owner, I have to chuckle sometimes when I see books like “The 4-Hour Workweek.” Work-life balance is not a 4-hour workweek. Don’t get me wrong, I actually like that book, it has some solid advice. But I feel like the expectation that material like that sets up is completely unrealistic

Glancing through our most popular posts today, I was a little appalled when I realized that the article, “I’ve lost my passion for life. How do I renew it?” had taken over the top slot. I’ve been through depression, and it’s scary to think that millions of people are flocking to articles like that during this crisis. I
