The North Star of Happiness Beckons

Earlier this year I wrote about my intention not to do things that suck :). My “No More Suckiness” Philosophy resulted from life experiences that really sucked. After all the confusion, lack of clarity, and unhappiness created by not checking in with how things felt for me, the “No More Suckiness” commitment is a comical […]

Eventually Water Always Wins Out

This worked last week, so I’m gonna try it again. Here’s a quote from “The Vortex,” by Esther and Jerry Hicks: A belief is only a thought that you keep thinking–it is only the beliefs that you hold that keep you from the things that you want. The Vortex, p221 Discuss: I have heard Abraham […]

You Cannot Criticize Yourself to Success

This is from “The Vortex,” a book by Esther and Jerry Hicks: Whenever you criticize, or push against, anything, you hold yourself outside of your Vortex. Flawed premises hold people outside of their Vortices of abundance and prevent them from the ease and Well-Being that they deserve. You cannot “criticize yourself ” to success. You […]

The Empire Building of A Young Schwarzenegger

I am currently reading Arnold Schwarzenegger’s autobiography “Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story,” a book with a title as big as the man himself. I’m still in the first part of it, where Schwarzenegger is still establishing his career. I am enjoying it very much, particularly Schwarzenegger’s focus and positivity as he goes about […]

Stumbling My Way To Clarity

In the past, when I heard about highly successful people and their ideas, a curious thing often happened. I was constantly studying success because I believed it would help me be happy and, of course, successful. I was often genuinely inspired by the examples and ideas I learned about. However, very often, though I was […]

Progress is Inevitable

This morning at the cafe I was writing about yesterday’s triumphant running experience which, to summarize, was my third time running 20 miles, yet my first truly satisfying 20-mile running experience. As I sat there writing, the following thought occurred to me: You are seeing the inescapable fact of progress towards what matters to you […]

The Blog Where I Throw Rocks At Myself
