The Art of Creating, Part One – The Big Nothing

One of the things I love about writing relatively short blog posts on a relatively regular basis is that I get to experience the whole of the creative process from start to finish. I begin each week with some kind of nothing (more on this in a bit), and by the time... read more

Who are You, Really?

Over twenty years ago, I was living in London and reading an exceptional amount of Eastern spiritual writings when I stumbled across a book called “The Teachings of Ramana Maharishi“. There was a simple practice outlined in the book where the reader was encouraged to... read more

How to Love the Year Ahead

Since 1994, I have begun each year by going through a wonderful process developed by Jinny Ditzler called Your Best Year Yet. I would review my achievements and failures from the year before, look for any limiting beliefs that might be holding me back, check in... read more

“I Know it’s Just my Thinking, but…”

In 2012, three years after having successfully launched an international training school for coaches called Supercoach Academy, I put the school on hold for a year because I noticed something was “off” in the way people were hearing the principles

What’s the Difference Between a Goal and a Miracle? (part one)

A Whole New Way of Thinking About Rapport

When I started my training as a coach back in 1989, one of the most important things they taught us was the importance of rapport in relationships – that feeling of goodwill between you and your client, customer, or loved ones that both greased the wheels of any interaction and served as a safety net for any time you needed to “go out on a limb”

From Tiny Acorns…

In 1999, one of my mentors took me to one side and said “The problem with you is that you’re too creative for your own good.” Not yet sure whether to be insulted or flattered, I listened on as he continued “You come up with all of these... read more

In Praise of “Average”

I was talking to the supercoach Steve Chandler once when he said to me, “Have an average day!” A bit taken aback, I asked him what he meant. After all, isn’t the idea to have “great” days, or even “exceptional” ones? He then told me the story of one of his mentors, a... read more
