Freedom… Enjoy It!

“Freedom discovers the man the moment he loses concern over what impression he is making or about to make.” – Bruce Lee To be free… that is the desire of all men and women isn’t it? But what freedom means to one individual may be the opposite of what it means to another. And a person may appear to be free in some ways while completely enslaved in others, as in an addiction to alcohol or drugs for example. So relative freedom is desired by all if not most and we work to find that balance of freedom in our lives. We’d love to have absolute or complete freedom over…

It Does Get Better

I guess it does get better. If there’s one thing I've got used to the past few years, it’s that when things go wrong - they go seriously wrong. It doesn't do any good to second guess or beat myself up about how life unfolds. I was making my bed a long time and as the saying goes - ‘you made your bed now go lie in it.’ So here I am – lying in my bed – my huge California King sized bed of life. If there was a way to kick my own ass, I would. Like that scene in the movie “Liar, Liar” when Jim Carrey beats…

Living life in “the In-Between”

Recently, I reflected on how I’d lost more than a few long time friends in death over the past several years. Some had been battling sickness for awhile, but most of them were untimely, due to a sudden illness – and still relatively young in age. It hit home how fragile our lives really are. I wondered how many had really lived the life they wanted. We come into this world with nothing and we leave with nothing. What we do in between is up to us and becomes our legacy. Today, I feel more strongly than ever, that the relatively small amount of time one has to live should be spent in as…

Become the Definition of You

When you hear the name Michael Jordan, what do you think of? How about Warren Buffett? What mental picture forms? When you hear the name Tiger Woods do you think of him a bit differently than you did say, several years ago? These men are popular in every sense of the word and each has in common a distinct definition associated with their name. They are defined by their outstanding achievements within their individual fields as well as by their respective actions outside of it. They've created a persona, a brand, a definition of who they are and just the mention of their name alone brings it to mind. Popularity simply expands our definition to…

Life – Ride It!

Life comes at us with a relentless voracity intent to destroy us - or make us more than we ever imagined we could be. Thing is, life doesn’t care what happens to you. It just keeps plowing ahead. If you do little to affect life’s force, be content with the mediocrity it will bring. That’s ok if that’s what you want. If you’d rather stand up to life and say “hell no!”, then you have a fighting chance! A chance to take life by the reins and ride it as you see fit! We can compare life to breaking in an untamed colt. If you mount life timidly, it will…
