Just Persevere TISW FB

I love to watch golf. It’s more than my love and passion for the game. It’s the individual stories behind everyone who plays. Every professional, amateur and weekend warrior has a story to tell.

We all have our reasons why we spend countless hours pursuing a game that challenges us to the core of our being. In the end, I have realized, it’s not even about golf.

Perseverance, Tenacity and Grit

It’s about believing in myself, never willing to give up on my greatness. It’s about perseverance, te…

Reverence for Life

REVERENCE FOR LIFE FB

This one precious life.

I hold it with deep reverence.

To live in the moment in full enjoyment with the people, work and surroundings I love.

It’s a get to.

Every breath I take is a gift.

A gift from the Divine.

I don’t ever want to take it for granted.

Reverence for life keeps me at peace.

The only way to bring world peace is to find that reverence for life within us.

We are one.

Can we simply create a win-win for all?

It starts with me.

It starts with love and peace in my heart.

I…

The Formula for Freedom

The Formula for Freedom

What does it mean to live free?

Is there a formula for inner freedom?

A way of Being in the world.

A way to be true to my soul.

A simple formula to live my best, most fulfilling life.

Truth + Authenticity = Freedom

That’s it.

Seek my truth.

Seek my own wisdom.

Trust my own intuition.

Listen to that still small voice.

I am the master of my own life.

Yes, there can be guides along the way.

But, ultimately it’s up to me to find my own truth.

It’s up to me to live my truth.

On the pat…

Embrace the Tree

EMBRACE THE TREE

All I have to do is be like a tree.

My feet are rooted deep into the ground.

I am unshakeable.

My spine is like a trunk of the tree.

I am grounded, centered and balanced.

My head is lifted tall like the tip of the tree.

I am proud of who I am.

My arms are like the branches.

I simply sway with the wind.

I take no thought of what I will eat or drink.

I know I will have enough for today.

I simply rest in being a tree.

A tree has nothing to prove.

It just has to be itself.

A tree provi…

Embrace Who I Am

Embrace Who I Am

I have tried to fit into the way I think the world wants me to be.

It has never worked once.

In my younger days I tried to be someone I wasn’t through heavy alcohol abuse.

It just about destroyed me.

I thought something was wrong with me.

Why don’t I fit in?

Walking into a crowded room with hundreds of different conversations brought me deep anxiety.

Being around too many people for too long drained my energy.

Loud environments are a lot to handle.

There is a strong sense that I don’t b…

It's Safe to Be Great

It's Safe to Be Great!-3

My greatest fear is standing out from the crowd.

Being different.

Not being accepted.

Not belonging anywhere.

You see, I have kept myself small to stay safe, to fit in.

I have shrunk back in my life time and time again.

The spotlight, no that isn’t for me.

It’s not safe to be great.

To put myself out there means the possibility of rejection.

It means I could be hurt.

But then the realization hits.

Who am I not to be great?

We all get to be great.

The world needs me to be great.

The…

Rise Up

Rise Up

Rise Up

Get knocked down.

Get back up again and again and again.

Rise up one more time.

Don’t stay down for the count.

Rise up into wholeness.

Rise up into oneness.

Perseverance is the name of the game.

With failing there is no shame.

Fail and fail some more.

Just fail forward.

What is failure anyways?

An opportunity to learn.

Or an opportunity to see ourselves as a failure.

What’s the difference?

I failed.

Or I am a failure.

The only way to fail is to give up.

We are warriors.…

Uninhibited

UNINHIBITED

What does it mean to live life uninhibited?

That is the question I have been asking myself.

Something I haven’t done very well in my life.

I have lived controlled.

I have lived self-consciously.

I have lived worrying about what others think of me.

What is the root of this inhibited life I have been living?

What do I need to do to live uninhibited?

To live from a place where I express my thoughts and feelings unselfconsciously and without restraint?

That sounds very freeing.

Somehow it …

3 Reasons Why I Love to Practice Qi Gong

Qi Gong

Qi Gong is the skill of working with energy. It’s the art of effortless power, mirroring the movement of nature. It originated 4,000 years ago in China. 

It’s a powerful practice that helps us to increase our energy and reduce our stress. 

We are energy, that is why I train my energy body through the Eastern bioenergetic practice of Qi Gong daily.

I Feel Empowered

I have learned the hard way that most of life is out of my control. At least the external circumstances are. Trying to control pe…
