Get Rid of Your Rear View Mirror

Lately, I’ve been distracted by my rear view mirror. I can’t get into my car any more without glancing at it and recalling a passage I recently read in a book called Miracle Morning by Hal Erod. In it, Hal says one of the most crippling causes of mediocrity in life is a condition he calls Rear view Mirror Syndrome (RMS )....

Snake Pit

  I believe that until we take full responsibility for what shows up in our life, we will stifle creativity, passion, and the potential to breathe life into our dreams. Shakespeare’s most recognized soliloquy is the moment when Hamlet ponders this question of whether the unknown experience of death is easier to bear than living....

Let Your Light Shine

When I learned that this series of Best Year Yet® articles was about the shift from a self-centered reality to one devoted to helping those around us and beyond, this idea of serving others rang true for me. For me, service offers a heart-centered experience, one that comes from our willingness to give our gifts and talents in unconditional support for the highest and best in another person....

The World Beyond These "Walls"

“I have come to the realization that my job is all-consuming. Between my job and my family, I have no other life!” I was meeting with a woman who was a member of a leadership team I was coaching and she had just completed her own individual Best Year Yet® plan as part of the program. Although I had not had this discussion with her before, her words sounded familiar....

Move from ‘I’ to ‘We’ – Your Success Depends on It!

I was traveling with the President of our company on a flight from Boston to New York after giving a client presentation. I was physically and mentally exhausted.  I had worked around the clock to get this presentation prepared and perfect. The presentation was a success! After waiting for just the right moment, the president said, “The client is worried about you and is not sure you can continue on the account.” I was dumb-founded and devastated....

Unmasked

  On the last day of 2011 when I took stock of the year, answering the ten questions within the Best Year Yet® system, I uncovered a surprising limiting belief that needed inquiry. While on the fourth question, a new insight caught my attention and made me rethink my approach. The question is, “How do I limit myself and how can I stop”?...

Impossible Dreams Do Come True

On a rainy afternoon 5 years ago fifteen members of the Aspen Executive Service Corps participated in a brainstorming session with a youth services organization called YouthZone.  The question Executive Director Debbie Wilde posed: “Should we take what we’ve built so far and expand its reach to youth services organizations throughout the U.S.?  If so, how?”...

Are You Ready for a Change?

One thing I know for sure is that we are more powerful than we know. We are created from greatness, a source of help greater than ourselves with the strength, courage, and faith to live empowering and fulfilling lives. Yet when we forget this truth we give life a different meaning, one of struggle, hardship, limitation and uncertainty.  Fortunately, there is good news. Regardless of one’s circumstance in life, help to change is always available. When we’re willing to ask for and accept help, we ...

Working Miracles For and With Africa

What a boost to open an email that said “You and Best Year Yet have worked miracles for us!” And a far cry from the call I had received from the same person three years earlier:  “We need help!” Ruth and her husband are the founders of a small non-profit organization called Computers for Africa.  Staffed entirely with volunteers, their work had grown until Ruth and Tim realized they needed to formalize their structure with a real board of directors that took over some of the work load – and the ...

Trigger for Transformation

  Life has an amazing way of causing us humans to change direction or get a move on when we get bogged down. These “Triggers for Transformation” are many and varied and are usually recognizable after the event. My nephew, a talented musician, went to Los Angeles for a year to discover his calling and find a niche in the mammoth music industry. He was reasonably successful in scoring a few gigs and nearly getting to be the keyboard player for a big name band. When he came home to Sydney for the ...
