Belief, Choice, and Hard Work

Small guys, hard work Originally uploaded by Javier Kohen A challenging year of growth started with the witnessing of a software tool that showed great potential for my own business. Given the nature of my history and talents, I was able to offer my services which in turn led to full time employment. Over the course of the year, I encountered incredible situations that challenged me. There were many moments of doubt about the choice […]

Success is Man Knowing Himself | Realization, Acceptance, Actualization

The world has the habit of making room for the man whose actions show that he knows where he is going. – Napoleon Hill. I enjoy the Napoleon Hill expressions myself and regularly get a daily dose. This one stirred more in me than expected, as often does a lot of phrases of advice that are well meant and often incomplete. While I cannot at all disagree with this expression, the nuance within the phrase […]

How to be positive

Hi, can you tell me how to be more positive? I am finding my self not to be positive about a lot of things. I sure can’t cast any stones for getting caught in that vice-grip. To change… wow… to change. It can be a journey, or it can be a decision. This is most likely the most accurate truth that can be offered. The Journey Not believing anything that your experience is teaching you, […]

Gratitude Excites Life | Feeling and Creating Success in Difficult Times

From the archives August 28, 2006 Getting excited about life can sometimes seem elusive when we’re dealing with many challenges and the associated stress. We always want to experience the best that life has to offer. At times, this preference may have us trying to avoid the challenges life throws our way. Regardless of my preference though, life seems to proceed and the challenge is survived. Along the way, as multiple challenging life situations are […]

Facing It Head On | Change Toward Success

This thing was eating at my gut. Sitting at the computer playing my little games wasn’t filling the time. Something is urging me toward action, toward more activity. Where, to what focus, and for what purpose? I log in to check my site stats. I’ve got lots of archived articles from the old scheduled for release this week. What else is there to do? As I ponder ever so briefly at my WordPress dashboard, eyes […]

Achieve Personal Potential – Are You?

Ralph Waldo Emerson once observed, “Our chief want in life is somebody who will make us do what we can.” I remember when I was parenting young children how rules, discipline, and boundaries created a stronger sense of security for both of the boys. For a time, trying to be ultra-modern and free, we offered much more leeway and freedom. We found during that period that the boys seemed to shrivel, become uncertain, and ironically […]

You know… No, really – You Know

Okay, so you might think I’ve got my act together with all the wonderful advice that seems to come from what I write. Why, how, where, what… ugh… Sometimes, I wonder where it comes from, why I have to share it, who really cares, does it really matter, and so on. Oops… Did I just admit that out loud on my blog? For all the great words of wisdom that seem to spout from lips […]

Christmas is Coming!

This has been an incredibly busy and fast-changing fall season; at least, for me it has. It’s strange actually, as I suddenly contemplate what next to say, that as I observe the difference of this fall season against the summer, that the fall season seems more frenetic. First it is the end of summer and getting all of our last minute summer favourite activities squeezed into the final days. Then its think about going back […]

She is Wonderful Beyond Expression

Sometimes we meet people who have a profound impact upon our heart. Two women friends came by for a visit and to take some flour off my hands; good intentions that long ago went awry. They stayed to chat for a couple of hours and somehow the conversation went into intimate and authentic territory without any effort. As experiences, observations, and insights are shared, a recognition of such magnitude arose that cracked the rumbling walls […]
