  • Joseph Campbell

    When we talk about
    settling the world’s problems,
    we’re barking up the wrong tree.
    The world is perfect. It’s a mess.
    It has always been a mess.
    We are not going to change it.
    Our job is to straighten out our own lives.

    Joseph Campbell

    If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, then, you are an excellent leader.

    If you went back and fixed all the mistakes you’ve made, you’d erase yourself.

  • Are you a good role model?

    Take a minute to think about the person you are. Who can you look at as a role model for your life – the parts you feel good about. It’s ok if it is one person or several. What specifically do you try to model?

    Do you think you are a good role model? If you knew, for certain, that someone was modeling himself in some way after you, would you act differently?

  • Imagine what our world would be like

    Imagine what our world would be like if everyone loved themselves so much that they weren’t threatened by other people’s opinions or skin colors or sexual preferences or talents or education or possessions or lack of possessions or religious beliefs or customs or their general tendency to just be whoever the hell they are.

    Imagine how different your reality would be (and the reality of everyone surrounding you) if you woke up every morning certain of your own lovability and your critically important role on this planet. And if you poo-pooed shame, guilt, self-doubt, and self-loathing and allowed yourself to be, do, and have everything your little heart desired.

    THAT’S the kind of world I want to live in.

  • More Like You

    When you get to heaven God is not going to ask you why you weren’t more like Mother Teresa, Billy Graham or Bono. He’s likely to ask you why you weren’t more like you. Your responsibility and source of real freedom and success is to discover who you are. Lead with your own unique talents and personality. Be authentically you and let God use you.
