“Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.” – Steve Jobs
Changing Perspectives and Love
Letting go and surrendering our life’s outcomes and instead choosing the beliefs and perspectives that empower us is a pathway to mastering the life experience that we all came to this life to have.
Kindness is a superpower
Aside from the gender bias of Thomas Carlyle’s quote which I do not like, the essence of what Carlyle is saying is especially poignant in our current state of affairs in the wold. How we treat each other in our daily lives right now is a reflection of the greatness that we each have the opportunity to show each other. It is actually in our own enlightened self-interest, in which kindness and compassion can unlock life’s abundances through our collaboration with others. Kindness has a way of connecting self interest with collaboration. When we act in kindness toward any person we essentially join them in working toward a common goal. When we collaborate, are more successful and we are more powerful. As a matter of fact, when we act with compassion then collaboration seems to be the default.
A Time For Everything
“There are times to stay put, and what you want will come to you, and there are times to go out into the world and find such a thing for yourself.” – Lemony Snicket, Horseradish

Mastering The New Year’s Life With Gratitude

I Am What I Feel
Me backstage at the Masters Nationals in 2010. I placed 3rd in the heavies that year. I loved competing and did so from 1989 until 2015. Now I just focus on coaching my clients, working with my athletes and judging some of the IFBB pro contests. My life as a retired athlete was a hard […]
Belief And Faith Are Choices
Me at the top of the Willis Tower in Chicago, standing on the sky bridge! You think you won’t freak out but I definitely took a second to step out on that glass well over a hundred stories up! I fools your brain, you rationally know that you won’t fall but every instinct says “don’t […]
How Do I Always Get What I Really Want?
Here is a shot from me at the 2008 North American championships, back when it was held in Cleveland. I have competed in 57 shows in my lifetime, in just about every weight class. What a wonderful competitive career I have had. While I do not plan to ever get back on stage, I love […]
