An impossible position

Share this:

An impossible position  Whenever we try to be responsible for another person – their happiness, their success, their mood, their well-being – we are setting ourselves up to suffer. We are putting ourselves in an impossible position because we are not in charge of that other person’s brain. We don’t have the power to make […]

Time to reevaluate

Share this:

Time to reevaluate   I have been writing the Daily Dose of Jonathan for years now. And, almost every Dose has been written on the day it was sent out. My story for doing it this way rather than having them queued up in advance is that it honors my freedom and spontaneity. However, it […]

Relax your way to success

Share this:

Relax your way to success  We were tossing a frisbee last night and – my daughter’s tossing has room for improvement. She was muscling up and trying too hard rather than letting aerodynamics do its job. From my limited golf experience, I know that muscling up and trying too hard pretty much guarantees a shank. […]

What are we waiting for???

Share this:

What are we waiting for???  It is amazing how easily we can come up with stories, and reasons, and excuses for not being in action, for not doing the things that will help us to become the person we want to be and to have the results we want to have. However, this is an […]

How willing?

Share this:

How willing?  How willing are you to listen to those little God whispers and then act on them? The other day, I heard the God whisper and then acted on it even though it was far outside my comfort zone. It had a big positive impact on that person. Tonight, someone did that for me. […]

MasterCard, Visa, or Discomfort

Share this:

MasterCard, Visa, or Discomfort  If we want to get from point A to point B via airplane, we will need a ticket. There are some costs involved in getting this ticket – time, effort, and money. If we want to go from where we are now to better results or a better life, there is […]

It is what we do next that matters

Share this:

It is what we do next that matters We are all going to at times make some mistakes, behave in non-ideal ways, and seek comfort instead of being bold. When those things happen, what matters most is what we do next. We can either clean up our mistakes or hope that no one noticed. We […]

Your Inner Marine

Share this:

Your Inner Marine Marines are trained to move towards danger. What if we sort of borrow a page from their playbook and train ourselves to move towards discomfort. What if that becomes our instinctive response – to go ahead and do the things that scare us because we know that they move our lives forward. […]

Out of Control Optimism

Share this:

Optimism is a good thing. But when optimism becomes mandatory, when people have it that there is no other option but to be optimistic, optimism can cause real problems. There is a fine line between optimism and delusion. When we have to be optimistic, we cannot see what we need to see. We cannot see […]
