Another Way Coaching Works

I read and listen to a lot of self/personal development stuff. But all that reading and listening doesn’t amount to a hill-of-beans (speaking of which, has anyone ever seen an actual “hill-of-beans” and is one all that desirable?) without application.

I betcha the Dalai Lama has a pretty good “money consciousness” (MC). I’ve been listening to an audio book in the car by the DL (that’s what I sometimes call him, cuz we’re down… ) (How To See Yourself, if you’re wondering) and when he mentioned money he got me to thinking. Thinking about how …

What’s Really In Your Way

“A man’s doubts and fears are his worst enemies.” – William Wrigley Jr. This is the fear Roosevelt was talking about… We each create our own reality (by how we think). When we think optimistic and* realistic thoughts we can meet any situation with strength, confidence and intelligence. When we don’t we will be hesitant, …
