The Challenges are Here

These are challenging times. Challenges offer both dangers and opportunities. It is up to us to look at what is going on and the best thing we can do in any current situation.   Only each of us can turn our work into success or failure.

We have to have one of those ‘Person in the mirror’ talks with ourselves and ask a few questions. The questions are relatively straightforward. What do you want, and what are you willing to do to gain your objectives. It is up to you to balance what you’re ready to put into a project to get the desired output.

Only you can chase your dreams. Only you can decide what you need, what you want, and what you were willing to do to grab the brass ring. If you are not journaling, this is the Time to start. Only you can do this, and if you don’t take notes, things can get very chaotic very quickly.

I cannot do this for you; however, if you truly desire to talk with someone, I am here. In two weeks, I will be starting group sessions online where you can speak of these things and share with others to get more views and facets of the diamonds you are building.

If you are interested in joining the group, please contact me at The group is free for the rest of the year.

Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again tomorrow.

Greed or Fear

I am tired of living in fear of losing a job that does not help me as a person.  I am also not as greedy as others may think.  I measure my wealth in the service I can do for others and the joy I can share.  My goal is to help where and whom I can, stay clear of those who would entrap me to feed their greedy goals, and do my best to live rather than fear.

I do not believe this makes me a pioneer, or a pirate, a mutineer, or just not one who follows money first, a renegade, or just resigned.  I know that in no fear, there is freedom.  Moreover, in not chasing the currency, a public feast of looking at the world through a different set of needs and values appears.

Do I suggest everyone stop work and let the economy come to a halt? Absolutely Not!  I propose that we take the time to look at the person we see in the mirror.  Look closely and see if that person is someone you would like to be.  If not, maybe consider what would help make the person in the mirror equal to your expectations of them.

When you make plans, plan how you can meet your obligations for yourself, your family, friends, and culture while staying true to you.  Being true to yourself is not greedy.  It is planning to reach your full potential.  Greediness would deny your best work to the rest of the world.
