Be Cool With Your Bad Assness!

Be Cool With Your Bad Assness!

It's really exciting to see how many people from so many different walks of life are genuinely interested in entering the world of coaching! I had responses from former NFL stars, mothers of clients I've coached for years, uber successful sales team leaders, a Para-Olympian, authors, coaches and even retirees.

Orlando Shooting: The ONE Reason We Are Still Killing Each Other

We lack Emotional Mastery. The solution to all this killing, and violence in general, in the US, and in the world, has not to do with gun control. That's potentially a medicine, but it ain't a vaccine. Gun control as the solution is like treating obesity with diet pills. Stupid. You don't have to be shot to be a victim.

In my observation, there are two types of sport fishermen. The type that fish to catch fish, and the type who fish for possibility.

Lifers: An Interview on Mental Toughness Training with the Paolinis

  When they started their 1st round of Mental Toughness Training sessions, Brielle was 12 and Brinson was 9 years old. That was 13 years ago. And they haven’t taken a day off in the interim. Meet the Paolinis. To describe this sister/brother duo as powerful or impressive or even as three standard deviations above the norm in every measurable category feels like a miserably weak understatement.

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 […]

Is there something "wrong" with the fact that we generally prioritize sex and money over everything else? Absolutely not. Although our learned shame might have us believe otherwise. But each of us is an expression of Divine Grace in human form, so how could there ever be anything wrong with our truths?

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.

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.
