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 […]

Privacy, and What is at Issue?

Are people shy? Or are they ill-behaved? Can you imagine that this question even enters our thoughts when we’re reading news reports that seem so slanted toward the negative views. My memory banks recall they also want us to be impacted by a lot of the negative media about war, death, terrorism, and who is the best politician, etc. No, there is never any bias there. In this world online, we have an opportunity to […]

Vancouver Timeraiser Event | How to Get Volunteers

How can we change the world? This is such a big question upon so many people’s minds as they look around them to a world with so many issues that seem apparent to each particular individual. Note it is issues that seem apparent to each particular individual, as the experience of one reflects issues important to the individual. Each of us has a sense of heart-driven desire to see a positive outcome occur for our […]

Limiting Perspective, Limiting Beliefs: Might as well Sell Your Soul

Can’t it predict my future? No. Nothing in this world can predict your future better than you can. When told recently it is an unethical world, I felt a number of warning signals flash in my body. Exploring the information received from the experience, and subsequent reflection, I realize the limitations introduced through such beliefs. This brought on the question “Why?” when considering the originating source. When someone insists upon a world with a negative […]

Balance: Flow and Faith

I found the following, written August 17, 2005, related to the same topics I’ve been revisiting recently. If you’ve ever heard of Spiral Dynamics, I mention it since I can see how the more recent experiences have taken me deeper. In so many areas of life we must always be vigilant of our mental, emotional and physical health. Getting involved or caught up in too much of one thing can create a multitude of problems […]

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. […]
