Are You Comfortable Being Uncomfortable?

The standard of being “comfortable” today is far different than even 50 years ago.  I went through my years thankful for having a safe, comfortable home in a suburb of Cleveland.  I always had enough to eat although my mother’s cooking allowed me to stay underweight for years.  I had a decent education.  I was […]

Servant Leadership and Money…

“Servant Leadership” is a new buzzword phrase lately.  Have you heard of it?  If you have not, there are plenty of books out there about it.  I am not here to give you a book list.  I am not here to load you down with definitions.  I feel that I have been a servant leader for […]

Think Big, Start Small

It would be great to be able to talk to creatures in nature to see what they are really thinking.  Just look at the photo above, taken by me at a local nature spot close by.  Two caterpillars, one large and one small, or is it just the perspective of the photograph?  And do either […]

Now, begin to dream…the next step…

Making the decision to find joy, tranquility, and peace with money was also the signal to find joy, peace, and tranquility in all areas of your life.  If you try to separate them from each other, it will be like a dog chasing its tail.  Do not try to segregate, just start living your life, and that […]

Meeting You Where You Are…in Life

Great thoughts come to me during meditation…remarkable thoughts, in fact.  As I prepare for a business expo next week which will cover The Empower Excellence Experience I was thinking way too hard when the Universe delivered to me, as it usually does, an exact thought that I needed to explore, and I did.  That thought […]
