It’s All Invented Anyways!

The stories we tell ourselves about ourselves and the world are invented. So instead of continuing to live a disempowering narrative about how the world is against you, invent an empowering story that provides you meaning and enhances the quality of your life.

Flip The Script

Every problem, every dilemma, every dead end we find ourselves facing in life, only appears unsolvable inside a particular frame or point of view. Enlarge the box, or create another frame around the data, and problems vanish, while new opportunities appear.

Presence Is Positive, Resigned Acceptance Is Not

Being present isn’t the same as accepting the negative parts of your situation in a resigned manner. You can’t eliminate the negative in your life fully.

What You Focus On, Grows

The more attention you shine on a particular subject, the more evidence of it will grow.

If you focus on the negative in your life, it will flourish. But if you instead focus on the positive parts of your experience that you can be grateful for, you will find that life is a lot lighter than...

Your Life Force

The Life Force for humankind is, perhaps, nothing more or less than the passionate energy to connect, express, and communicate.
