Get Up Again When You Get Knocked Down

Some days are brutal! I know you know what I mean. We’ve all had them! I’ve had so many metaphors run through my head for how this feels. Keeping your head above water when the world is pushing you under. (I thought it sounded to much related to cash) When you feel like a bobbing yo-yo. (a what?) That’s enough of that, the title says enough – like that song, “I get knocked down, but […]

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 […]

Clean Out Your Own Basement | When Things Go Wrong | Change Starts Within

Whenever things aren’t going well in life, it can be observed long after we’ve survived the struggle that all we had to do was make a change we didn’t want to, or were struggling with, or didn’t want to change. As the year of transitions to end a decade of transitions continues, I have at times been perplexed at the trouble climbing the hill. Try as I might, I kept stumbling and falling down. Recently, […]

How?

There are times when so much change is underway that the forces can be felt pushing from all sides. Weathering this pressure isn’t the real difficulty – performing is. The mind’s ability to think clearly with focus becomes obscured. At least, this is my experience. Regrettably, without knowing this and remembering too, this becomes stressful and adds to the crisis. So when it is happening, do your best and go easier on yourself. The change […]

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 […]

Courage & Love Prevails

Weary to the bones, feeling the heaviness and despair, the fatigue demands you to sit and breathe awhile. As you sit and withdraw within the burdened mind and heart, you pant for breath, for life to return. A gust of wind stirs and refreshes you momentarily, clearing away the dark thoughts of the day, the months, and the years, and you raise your head and eyes to observe. “How did I not notice this?” you […]

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 […]

Relax, Flow Through It

Relax, Flow Through It First video log for the One Man Can blog. Off the cuff improvisation results in a flow of consciousness that brings a little wisdom back to life from the movie American Beauty and the great ending lines of the movie by Kevin Spacey. Give me your feedback, tell me what you liked, what could be better, and offer up any “Talk Topics” you’d like to hear me chat about.

Changes, Changes, Changes: Hang On!!

Need I say more? Dealing with the turbulence that comes often with changes, I can lose my cool, lose my patience, lose my calm, lose my mind, and even lose my way. This happens as the physical calm of routine vanishes and the mind enforces new routines and both the mental and physical aspects of our experience need to adjust. Fancy explanation for the jitters. So what the heck can you do to weather the […]
