Growth

For the sake of writing! There has been a hesitancy, even a fear or sense of dread, about writing on the blog pages of One Man Can. You see, the whole premise of the site, the writing, the coaching, the encouragement, was and is intended to lift people up, challenge people positively with their thinking, relationships, and professions. Instead, I found my own life being challenged and myself having difficulty being positive with the unfolding […]

Teasing the Writer

It can be seen by the lengthy distance between the dates for each blog post, the writer that creatively tells stories that inspire has been lost in the quagmire. Okay, so bad pun! I gotta play with what I got and get the juices flowing again! Of course, with the fingers off the keyboard, the mind was dancing with many turns of phrases that told a story. Laptop not ready, clumsy fingers on a tiny […]

Opportunity or Disaster? The Bane of Change

A fog rolled in, quietly slithering in low to the ground, imperceptible at first until it was too late to escape the chill soup. It’s not You, it’s the It! What the…? Do you even know what you’re talking about? It! It’s the It, man! You’ve got it, and typically, we’ve all got it in some way, shape, or form. The beautiful thing about it though, is that It isn’t You. It just is what […]

How Could It Be?

Yesterday I shared a significant insight from my own journey. It’s interesting to note that often a powerfully resistant question crops up almost immediately. “What do you mean?” It is a powerful disbelief because this realization places even more responsibility on my doorstep than I had otherwise felt real. This is where the sh1t has to get off the pot. I’m shaken to my core, fully recognizing and not wanting to look, that I simply […]

Where ya been?

Ha! I said I’d be posting something every day. Did you see what happened over the weekend? Nothing! Absolutely nothing! I had time, or could have made time, I’m sure. So what happened? I see hidden in the corner of my [[consciousness]], this petulant brat who wants to snub his nose at all the demands of people. He just wants to be selfish. He wants some attention, some care, and some love. He didn’t want […]

Accountability’s Trick

Accountability is taking ownership, or personal responsibility, for circumstances brought about through their conduct, or choices. There are so many occurrences in our lives where we are called to make decisions, that thousands and millions of decisions were made without even thinking consciously about them. Sort of like flicking away an annoying insect while engrossed in a conversation. Today, as conversations delved into the topic area of [[accountability]], the issue of fate and the mystery […]

Communication Breakdown

Filters represent the tint from which we view life, the interference that distorts our audio, and the perspectives that taint our language. I’ve worked through many, and I still have many to recognize and grow through. We’ve all been doing this for a long time at varying rates and by varying degrees. A failure to recognize and control these impulses, perspectives, and opinions can have a negative effect on our relationships due to communication breakdown. […]

Relationship To Everything

Relationship is the problem with everything, and it is the opportunity with everything. That being said, the human tendency is to make it about what is [[external]] rather than [[internal]]. I’ve learnt this through a series of challenging circumstances, observing my actions and reactions, cause and effect, and experiencing some things from different perspectives. You know how it is said, “the only thing you control is your [[attitude]].” “you attract what you are.” and that […]

This Blog’s Plan

For years I’ve been writing bits and bobs for my website. Prior to the internet I was an avid journal writer. Often times, my writing was very similar to the style of writing in my blog. Often inspiration, more or less conversational, and yet, while it may seem I am talking at you, I’m in fact talking at me. Why else would I be questioning in the first place, to only have an insight or […]
