That One Thing - Monday Morning Motivation

This weekend while interviewing singer Margaret Bell for my podcast, I asked her the question that I ask all artists, "Do you do this full time?" To my delight, her answer was, "Yes." She went on to describe how she believes that we've all been given one thing, a gift or talent that will sustain us throughout our lifetime.

Think about how divided our attention and energy is. What if we just devoted it to the one thing that we know we are extremely gifted at?

I ask this often and I'll ask it again...What if you gave that one thing and 8 hour day, like the day you are giving to your employer today? What if you gave that one thing a 40 hour week? What if you spent 30 days brainstorming and planning how you might transform that passion into profit?

What would life feel like if all you were doing was that one thing that you loved and were great at?

I'll give you a few never dread waking up and getting out of bed. Most of your tears are happy ones. The main, and ofte ...READ MORE

Mayweather Defeats Pacquiao, Will Retire After September Fight

In what was a historic night for Floyd Mayweather as he turned in a vintage performance against career nemesis, Manny Pacquiao as he earned the win via unanimous decision with the scores of 118-110 and 116-112 times two, the same score ITR Boxing had. "He had moments in the fight, but I outboxed, I was a smart fighter...and I did what I had to do." Mayweather explained after the fight. "When the history books are written, this was worth the wait!"

The first round started with Mayweather taking the center of the ring as he asserted control early. With in seconds into the round, Mayweather landed a straight right that moved Pacquiao back, but in the middle of the fight Pacquiao attempted to leap in on Mayweather who caught him crisp with a straight right hand that rocked Pacquiao. The second round saw a more aggressive Pacquiao, but still doomed to fail as the more precise fighter, Floyd Mayweather, continued to land the right hand every single round. The third followed suit as well ...READ MORE

    "What Moves You?" - Monday Morning Motivation

    "What Moves You?" - Monday Morning Motivation

    Monday Morning Motivation - "What moves you?" Last week I had the pleasure of meeting a wonderful woman who shared her passion for collecting with me. I watched her eyes light up with joy as she described the adventures that led her to the Disney dolls and Mikey Mouse memorabilia.

    It made me realize how I've allowed the busyness of the world to whisk me away from the simple pleasures of life.

    In an attempt to help me decide what I might collect, she asked me one simple question, "What moves you?"

    It was a question so simple yet so profound that it helped me to uncover how past experiences can leave you with scar tissue so thick that it leaves you numb. It made me think about how present responsibilities and worries of the future can surround you with an impenetrable fog and leave you stuck in haze. All of this leaving you with an inability to feel and truly experience the beauty that is life.

    So what moves me? What moves you? The process by which I came to answer this q ...READ MORE
