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 […]

You Can’t Control Your Environment

Along the seeker path, a strong desire builds to experience peace as a continual state. A common error often occurs, whereby the initiate seeks to choose their environment, thus beginning to shut out perceived negative energies from their experience in order to create more peace in their life. I won’t say this is wrong, it is a step along a path. Along my own path, I was in the same place five years ago and […]

Mind Emotional Human Potential: Sink or Grow Rich

The Secret, The Power of Intention, Think and Grow Rich, and a myriad of other top-selling spiritually-minded self-help books send off a vibe that life is easy. Well, they don’t say it directly, however, as an audience we hear all the promises for potential and miss a good number of the steps necessary to get to that state. Let me explain. Earlier in my life, I recognized the hardships, endured, and grew strong. Leading into […]

Gates of Perspective

How you look at things determines what you see. Difficult experiences cast a shadow upon the lens of the soul, as many express the limiting perspectives these experiences create. Recognizing and making choices to push beyond a limiting perspective yields enormous potential. The challenge I’m finding now is combining head and heart without burning out.

Watch What I Say? Watch How You Hear!

When communicating something difficult, or even something simple, the delivery comes from the lips of one person’s personal point-of-view. It’s not about opinion, it’s not about truth, it’s not about being wrong or right, it is only a phrase born from the combined forces of an individual’s heart, mind, education, socialization, culture, and personal experiences. They have bitterness in their heart, there’ll be traces of bitterness. If there is hurt, traces of hurt. If there […]

Arrogance Doesn’t Become You

Okay, I admit it. Sometimes I can come across as arrogant. In fact, sometimes I probably am acting arrogant. How else could I recognize what I’m about to write? Recently, I became involved with an organization building community. This transition didn’t come easily for me, having to overcome a number of personal challenges. We could likely agree that challenges are humbling experiences and great growth and learning periods. I’d also say the influence of the […]

Life Changes a Man | Man Changes Life | Transformation Journey

A lot can change in a man’s life, and a lot in life can change a man. This is my story. In the past, my site was my business. I am a Professionally Trained Life Coach from the highly acclaimed Coaches Training Institute. That training was pivotal in providing tools to engage and struggle through a transformation’s final stages. Now, moving to a new chapter, my coaching remains part of my toolbox while my career […]

Life After Death

Death is not a topic many people could say they enjoy. Strangely, today and recently I’ve had numerous conversations with others about life, death, and god. There is a peace that comes with exploring the balance, meaning, and experience of these three topics. A portion of expanding thoughts includes influences from science as well. Today, at the local coffee shop, a chance conversation explored life, death, and god, integrating senses with fact and theories based […]

Life’s Beauty and Mysteries Squashed & Found

The conflicted craziness that observes our current cultural and societal reality tears at the heart and mind from time-to-time. Today, being pointed to one of Einstein’s writings, I picked the following that resonates with a strong value I hold dear. The really valuable thing in the pageant of human life seems to me not the political state, but the creative, sentient individual, the personality; it alone creates the noble and the sublime, while the herd […]

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. […]
