BE A DREAMER

I am a dreamer.  It’s part of the fabric of my being.  One of my dreams as a kid was to play football professionally for the Minnesota Vikings.  I was on that path until a devastating knee injury in college changed the course of my entire life.  

That unrealized dream has lead me...

ONE Million Starts with ONE

In this world of follows and likes on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, LinkedIn and however many more social media platforms we have it is so easy to get caught up in numbers.  Believe me I have fallen into that trap many times myself. 

I often times wonder what our life would be like if we went back to the days before social media.  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think social media is all bad and I certainly use it to share my story and encourage others, but I...

Personal Internal Commitment

As I walked into the tattoo parlor totally out of my comfort zone and quite honestly a little freaked out I heard a voice coming from above.   “Come up here.”  Is that you God?  Are you trying to tell me something?  As it turns out it was just the owner upstairs where they do all of the tattooing.  There wasn’t anyone on the main floor and they have video cameras to see when someone enters the building.  It wasn’t the voice of God,...

The Next Chapter

It has been about two years since I left the comfort and security of my six figure pharmaceutical job and moved to Colorado after living in Orlando for the last twenty years of my life.   I left behind comfort, safety and security for the great unknown.  What a faith adventure God has me on. 

I would love to tell you since moving out here it has been all sunshine and rainbows.  It hasn’t been.  There have been many ups and downs along the way.  ...

Does Life Really Have to be so Hard?

DOES LIFE REALLY HAVE TO BE SO HARD?

Does life really have to be so “hard?”  Does it always have to be a struggle?  It seems in my own personal and professional life I have become really good at making things hard.   I have always been hard on myself.  I have always demanded perfectionism of myself and when I don’t live up to my own expectations I beat myself up mentally and yes sometimes even physically.  Damn, that’s a hard way to live...

Rise Up to the Murph Challenge

When was the last time you got out of your comfort zone?  When was the last time you pushed your physical limits beyond what you thought you were capable of?  When was the last time you have felt fully alive?

In this day and age it’s easy for us to get soft.  We have 200 channels on the TV to choose from.  We have fast food restaurants on every corner.   We have phones that keep us connected to the world 24/7.

I don’t know about you, but I am about...

Creating the Habit of Greatness

Whether we want to admit it or not we are all creatures of habit.   The vast majority of us do the same things day after day.  We eat the same foods, we think the same thoughts, we drive to work the same way.

Of course that is good in many ways.  Thank goodness we don’t have to re-learn how to drive a car every day.  We have that habit instilled in us to the point we often times drive somewhere and have no recollection of how we even got there. ...

One Word Can Change Your Life

Abundance-1.jpg

2018 has come and gone.  For me 2018 was the fastest year on record.  It went by like the blink of an eye.   It was an amazing year in so many ways, but also very challenging.  As always the two parallels of life.  The good and the bad.  The triumphs and the failures.   The moments of love and then heartbreak. 

The biggest thing I learned from 2018 is to embrace uncertainty.  To be OK with not knowing.  To completely trust God and...
