It usually happens when I declare I am going to learn something new.  Like right now, I am learning how to film and edit with Adobe Premiere Pro. Hours can go by and I don’t even know what happened. I am so involved in the process. Struggling through learning something new on After Effects, I look up and it’s 11 pm. My Fitbit app telling me it’s time to get some rest.  I like this […]

It’s pretty damn simple really. It all boils down to how we experience our lives. How alive we are in the moment. How we show up. How we experience life depends on how conscious we truly are.   The question is, how deeply awake we are as we experience our life. If we were radically honest with ourselves and woke up enough to notice, we’d admit that the majority of us are just sleepwalking children. Everything we […]

So why did I start this blog in the first place? I started because I knew I had to grow. I knew I had to grow emotionally, spiritually, professionally and physically. I knew that if I didn’t grow and change and adapt, I would be stuck. I don’t want to be stuck and I don’t want to stay the same. It’s not serving me well. At each level of your life, the world demands a […]

Surrender and Slow Down Expect some pain today. When faced with problems during the day, I like to think of them as growing pains. You see, the counter-intuitive (and funny) thing about embarking on the path of personal growth is that it’s not going to be all cake and cookies. Read: 7 Harsh Truths About Personal Growth. However, whatever you do, don’t add to your pain and problems. Slow down, see life as it is, not […]

Four weeks into The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity and I am drowning deep in dark emotional pain. Ugggghhhhh, I have protected myself from this real work for way too long. I knew it would be hard, I have avoided facing the truth about what I really fear for a very long time. Looking for short cuts, life hacks. . .rushing through self-repair is never really possible. And damn it, I knew that. I raise my […]

 In my playbook, every day is Thanksgiving and I bet a lot of you reading this feel the same way. As we remain grateful this holiday, let’s take a moment to consider how fleeting life really is. . .memento mori. A Life That Matters  (A Non Religious Funeral Reading) Ready or not, some day it will all come to an end. There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours, days. All the things you collected, […]

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. Why my life seems so yo-yo-ee.   A bit up and down.  Why I haven’t achieved all that I want by […]

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 […]

All the power that we need is within us and will set us free from a life of regret. All unnecessary worry and anguish melts away when we become more self-aware of our strengths and our weaknesses and realize that our greatest moment is the one right in front of us. Our lives become more peaceful and our minds become stronger. Our lives become better when we become more self-aware. “He who knows that power is […]

  Three things that are helping me grow right now . . . 1. Understanding Certainty vs Accuracy The Quest:  How to know the truth. Understanding that just because someone appears confident in what they are telling you, meaning they seem to be 100% certain about their story, doesn’t mean that the story is 100% accurate. Be careful and cautious about believing what you hear, read and watch. “Certainty” does not always equal accuracy. Stay cautiously skeptical. 2. […]
