10 Days Can Change Your Life

10 Days Can Change Your Life…. Will You Take the Challenge?

One of the things that I miss about college is the feeling of accomplishment and sense of completion you got from finishing a semester. After finals, the classes I was taking were over, never to be revisited again. The next semester would start fresh with new classes, new schedules, a fresh outlook and a renewed commitment to do my best. As the calendar turned to the new year, I got the same feeling of completion, renewal and commitment to be the best possible version of myself.

To make any meaningful and last differences requires the commitment to a refined way of thinking. One of the modern day masters of influence and human behavior is Tony Robbins. Tony has always shared an empowering message of being personally accountable for your actions and outcomes. I graduated from Tony’s Mastery University Program back in the late ‘90s and it remains to this day one of the most powerful learning experiences I have had. At the program Tony shared something he called the “Ten Day Mental Challenge.” Like most things, it is easy to talk about, but extremely challenging to do. The benefit of accepting the challenge lies in something Socrates said, “Once a man’s mind is stretched, it will never go back to its original shape.” Once you feel how people and situations magically change around you when you change, you will become addicted to this new way of thinking. As you start your year with the commitment to be your best, read though the challenge and see if you are committed enough to fully embrace the 10 Day Mental Challenge


Distractions Be Gone

Posted: May 17, 2019

It’s sad, but true; many people are already losing their way on their New Year’s resolutions. With increasing emails, texts, Facebook, phone calls, day to day life, demands and the occasional crisis… are you surprised? I think the only shot we all have of reaching meaningful long term goals is to take control of the noise. One of my commitments this year is to get distracted less. I want to focus my time in a way that allows me to get the most from each and every day. I will give little or no time to things that don’t benefit the advancement of a worthy goal or provide the recharge I need to consistently be the best version of me.

Three questions to ask –

1. What is the highest value activity that I should be doing right now?


Speak in a language understood

"If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.” - Nelson Mandela

With the passing of Nelson Mandela recently, it seems appropriate to highlight some of his philosophies. And while we will most likely never be called on to free a nation, his quote above can have impact for each of us in our daily lives. How many of us take the time to think through the language that will most easily be understood by the people we are communicating with?

Most of the time conflict seems to stem more from a perception someone has of the way we speak rather than the content of what we say. Taking time to show this level of respect for the people we are communicating with increases the rapport we will have with them and our chance for a positive outcome.

How do I know if my child is attracting bullying?

By Master Christopher Rappold

It can be embarrassing and awkward to find out, but sometimes we can all be the source of what is bringing on our problems. To figure out whether this applies to you, communication is the key: communication with your child, communication with the teacher and communication with the other parents. It’s important that you keep informed. Ask your child questions beyond, “How was school?” Probe to see how they speak to others and how they react to situations. When they share something that happened in their day, follow up with specific questions that will reveal their behaviors and perceptions of events.
