Follow the Rules or Follow Your Heart?


They told you to follow all the rules and you’d be happy and successful.

You gave it your best only to find yourself far down the road and not as fulfilled as you’d hoped.

What gives? Nowhere in following all those outside rules and prescriptions for your life did they tell you that what fulfills comes from within and flows outwards not the other way around.

Thankfully, you have an internal compass that knows where your bliss lives.

Follow your heart. It knows the way.

Wherever you are on your journey today, remember you are awesome!

Our Thinking Will Decide the “New Normal”

We’re hearing a lot these days about the “New Normal.” We must not simply sit back and let others define that for us. We must be active participants in deciding what that new normal is and in taking responsibility for the thinking and paradigms that create it. This is a moment of opportunity. Let us seize it to move the world forward.

I captured my thoughts about this in a quick video today. I’d love to hear your thoughts and the hope and the challenges the “New Normal” presents.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you ARE awesome!
