College Seniors, DON’T GET A JOB!

If you or someone you know is about to graduate from college, please advise them NOT to get a job! Jobs are becoming obsolete. If your friend loved listening to music, you wouldn’t advise them to go out and get some tape cassettes of their favorite music. You’d advise them to at least get a cd, or to download the music into their ipod. Cassettes are to MP3’s as jobs are to passions. Inherent within our passions are the mechanics for success, fulfillment, and the greatest contribution and impact. When we are engaged in a project about which we are effortlessly and intrinsically […]

Charlie Sheen is a Mirror

Last week my Miraculous Life email Bulletin elicited some pretty strong reactions. And that wasn’t my intention. I don’t post things for shock value or to simply stir the pot. Everything I ever write and submit publically is done so with the intention of somehow raising the bar on how we, as a collective, view the world. Charlie Sheen’s recent public presence and persona is, on many levels, disturbing. If he was my friend, I’d be legitimately concerned about him and I would be reaching out to him – not simply writing about him. Many of his behaviors seem clearly indicative of […]

Deepak Chopra + Chris Dorris = Miraculous Life

This truly is a Miraculous Life we’re living. Every day is pure potentiality. A realm of infinite possibilities. Here’s a story of a trip I took a year and a half ago to India.  It’s a story that illustrates the power of several of the Mental Toughness Tools or Technologies that I incorporate into my Individual Personal Transformation Coaching Experience and my seminars, lectures and workshops. Tools like, The Decision Distinction, Abundant Thinking, The Power of Intention, Courage, Disciplined Action, and Divine Selfishness, to name a few. When we learn, integrate and practice these tools, and we engage in the […]

HOT STEAMY SEX!!!

Click this link to watch the HOT STEAMY SEX VIDEO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7g3llP64HPg Right now, after you read this sentence, stop for a moment, close your eyes, and answer for yourself the questions: Why did I open this message? Why did I open it right now, as opposed to later? Was I affected by the title/subject line? Two of the top 5 most expensive domain names in history include sex.com and porn.com (which sold for $12-14 million and $9.5 million, respectively in the last couple years). The other 3 of the top 5? Insure.com, Fund.com and Business.com. So, what do we care about more than anything […]

TBOLITNFL and ALL-INness

Miracles are happening in my life right now. Each of these miracles was born from a decision that Arizona Cardinals Offensive Lineman, Duece Lutui, made on September 7th, 2010. The power of being in a state of ALL-INness is immeasurable. If you like miracles, and if you like creating them for yourself, then watch these two videos. In them, I tell the story of what’s been transpiring since the first miracle that happened at 9 pm on Wednesday October 27, 2010.

It’s done! As I say in the video above, the reason there’s not been a blog post in the last 3 months is that I’ve been consuming myself with this creation – the most valuable creation I’ve made to date. It took a lot of time and work, in part because it’s all new to me and have never done it before, so there was new technology to learn – BUT, it took this long primarily because I […]

Tiger Woods’ Lesson for Us All

I was amazed at how quickly people went to the effort of creating Photoshoped images and posting condescending YouTube videos about Tiger Woods and the drama he created. Tiger has given us an infinitely convenient opportunity to practice something here that it simply not useful - aligning through negativity. More specifically, his story has given us the opportunity to pretend that we , ourselves, are beyond transgression.

How to Develop A Disciplined Mind: Three Steps to Toughness

It takes a disciplined mind to be able to return to the creative state - the state of mind that is necessary to create the life of your dreams. And we must return to it again and again, as we experience the challenges that life brings. In fact, the disciplined mind is not only less vulnerable to such challenges, the disciplined mind is enthusiastic about them. To the disciplined mind, life would be boring without the downs that give meaning to the ups.

The COURAGE to believe!

Without Clarity on how it is that one wishes to most profoundly use their life, they certainly cannot create the dream. But that clarity is not enough. In order to manifest the life of your dreams, you must also establish the Courage to reprogram some extremely powerful conditioned beliefs that tell you you can't have what you want, or be who you want, or follow your passion and still thrive.
