“Life requires of man spiritual elasticity, so that he may temper his efforts to the chances that are offered.” ― Viktor E. Frankl “Change is essential for survival. All life forms must adapt to their fluctuating circumstances. All form of life result from the process of variation, mutation, competition, and inheritance. The universe is in a constant state of chaos. We each have chaos implanted into our bones. Nature wires all of us for change.” […]

Our motives are goal directed activities that energize and direct our behavior. Our motives support what we do, how we behave and what we put forth in the world. Sometimes our motives are simply the presentation of how we hope the world perceives us. Powerful . . Intelligent . . Foxy. . . Strong. . . Compassionate . . . Sometimes though, we have to make choices. Choices between doing what we want to do and what we […]

I’m grateful for another chance. The opportunity to start from scratch. An opportunity to improve my attitude and behavior. This day is fresh, clean, unworn with emotional stains.  Nothing carried over from yesterday, just this rare and beautiful day, made up of many moments ahead, today is a day in my life, not my entire life. How will I use it?  What I choose to think about today will make me and much around me, […]

This post is for me, but if you read something that resonates with you, please let me know. Comment below or send me a tweet @marketcouncil.   I would love to hear your thoughts. The Way You Do Anything, is the Way You Do Everything I’m thinking about why my successes are not more consistent.

What Moves You Forward?

I wonder why you do what you do. What drives you through your day? Why I do what I do. Why do I desire deeper connections with people I love and admire? Because life would seem vacuous with anything less. It is important for me to feel connected, relevant, needed and valuable. Why am I  driven to understand where the world is headed? Because standing in the dark seems like such a frightening place to hide. It seems to […]

Know how to hit the headwinds. There is a fine line between saying who […]

As We Are, So It Is

Our perception builds and constructs our reality; which in turn becomes our life. With the help of our good, bad and indifferent judgements, our choice of language, our cognitive biases, past experiences and memories, we  assemble how we choose to see the world. All of these inferences paint the way we experience our lives and effect the lives of those closest to us. What we see is one thing, what we perceive is a completely different matter. Our reality is […]

The Goal: A Completely Transparent & Unclouded Mind I am not an online shopper. I don’t buy much stuff at all. But this week I’m anxiously checking my mailbox daily. I’ll try (almost) anything to tame my unsettled and restless monkey mind. What did I order, you ask? A brain boosting mushroom (minus the visuals ) coffee with lion’s mane (supposedly good for memory and in a category of safe, smart drugs or nootropics) as well as […]

True transformation, real personal change, can come from a spark of inspiration or devastating disruption. When you have been so turned on that your Hell Yes becomes your mantra for mind-blowing transformation or when you have dug yourself into such a deep hole that there is no way out but a mandatory intervention of something has to f😎king change. That moment that transforms your mind and ignites your soul can be fueled when you follow through with […]

I think to some extent we all want to improve our lives. We all want things to be better. A better career, more money, less weight, more adventures, loving relationships. Right? I don’t know if I have met anyone who doesn’t want some improvement somewhere in their lives. So what’s the problem? I think what’s difficult is the change that is required to improve. That’s where we get stuck. It’s really hard to change you, but it’s […]
