Hi Team..

SO, yesterday was a big day for me: My Birthday!

A great day... since I am surrounded by amazing people.. family, friends, clients, and an amazing amount of support from so many I interact with from all over the World....

Every year, I love to take a good 30 minutes in the morning on my birthday to do a little thinking and reconciling of my thoughts...

It is a simple exercise that has tremendous meaning to me as it keeps me even.. and moving forward with a fresh, clear, neutral headspace that is filled with a focus on forward and high levels of enthusiasm about what it is I get to do going forward....

So, today, I wanted to share some of my biggest take aways:

  • Trust The Process... because life is and always will be a process...
  • Celebrate The Victories.. never forget how good it feels to win...
  • Success Over Time.. delayed gratification is a blessing...
  • Always Believe In Yourself.. probably the most important lesson...
  • Run Your Own Race.. remember, you are the only horse in the race...
  • Work From The Inside Out.. do not be influenced by a world of influencers...
  • Your Timelines Are Often Not Reality.. things happen how they should..
  • Trust That It Always Works Out How It Is Supposed To...

Look, these lessons are only of value if they are understood and applied.

Having coached so many great people through the years I have learned that most people do things because they think they have to...

Meaning, they live by default and not on purpose...

They give so much of their own originality away by trying to be like others rather than embracing themselves.. the full package...

I wrote to you today to share some ideas that can help you lead with your best foot forward...

Doing things that may not make sense to others.. but make sense to you.


Look less for external validation and validate yourself by working at your own pace on the things you love the most with people that get the job done.

Surround yourself with amazing people that support the cause and love what they do and most importantly love you.

When you get this right, you win. 

You will always win.

Live your life like a Champion.

You only get one life- make it great and do not stand for anything less.

Live on Purpose.

Let's GO.

Love you all!

Your Coach,
