What is your purpose?

  I've been battling internally with that question for some time now. "What in the heck am I here to do? Where do I go from here?" "Is what I "do", and how I make money the same thing? Should it be, and can it be?" "Should I live for my days "off"? Is there more to life than just "the weekend"?" "If so, how on earth am I going to find out what my purpose is? Is it the…

You Gotta Have A Goal. Negative Ned, Read This.

Lately things have just been working out. My relationships are great, I've got money in the bank, I'm healthy, and I'm hopeful; but it hasn't always been this way. In fact, life can change for me so dang fast. In only a months time I could be struggling to pay my electricity bill, stressing over doing wash (yes, I know, talk about petty), arguing with my fiancé, and feeling like a sack of rocks, looking at life like a mule…

Don’t Make Life So Hard.

One of the most life-changing books I've ever read is "The Four Hour Workweek." By Timothy Ferriss. He included this story in his book and I just had to share it with you. If you're more interested in YOUR version of success and not the dinosaur ideals most people consider "success", this book and the following story is for you.

Being an ambitious guy, I tend to get life out of whack by pursuing, working non-stop, and getting caught up on minutiae. My mom and I…

Redefine Success. Or live your life as a failure.

What is "true" success? What just popped into your mind? Unfortunately I'll bet you 20 bucks that what just flashed through your subconscious were images of the "trappings of success" but had little or nothing to do with your own success. I'll bet you just lost 20 bucks didn't you? I'm tired of the misconceptions to be honest, so it's time to put them to bed. For good. Say "goodnight misconceptions"! To do that, let's turn our attention to the…

So you didn’t win the Powerball. Now what?

When the Powerball hit 1.6 billion what did you do? Did you run to the gas stations or corner stores, eager for your chance to play your lucky numbers? Did you play more than once? Did you start dreaming like a kid again? Did you tell everyone you talked to how much you'd be sharing with them. Did you share all the great things you were planning to do if you won the Powerball? I personally was promised 50 thousand…

My morning ritual

Every morning when I wake up, my phone alarm goes off right under this shelf. These are the first items I see. The compass reminds me to stay aware of my direction in life. The wooden carved turtle reminds me of my love and respect for the outdoors and wildlife. The multi tool reminds me of the importance of always being ready, no matter what life throws at me. The books including the Bible remind me to stay humble and…
