I have noticed a trend in the people I work with with. There is a striking difference between those who have great lives and those who don’t. The key ingredient is commitment. There are a hundred and one reasons not to change, just as there are countless things that could go wrong when you take the risk to follow your dream of the great life you could be living. Those who actually get there, those who have well-rounded, grounded, full lives, they are the ones who don’t let the reasons and the obstacles become excuses. They are committed to finding a path, even in the midst of personal trauma, family dysfunction, and world catastrophe. Those who have great lives didn’t just stumble upon them, they cultivated them. If you take every interaction and every challenge as an opportunity to grow intellectually and emotionally, and see adversity as a chance to test what you are made of, good things start to happen. I was inspired into this line of thinking by Dr. Wayne Dyer and his book Excuses Begone, where he shows the flaws in every last excuse that we use to avoid change. Whether you are telling yourself you can’t afford it, you are too young/old, you aren’t talented/smart enough, or some other thing, I challenge you to stop making excuses. It’s only when you fully commit that change is possible.

Because we limit the number of participants, it will also allow you to move quickly through your life’s challenges in a supportive and transformational environment.
Returning from holidays always gives me a fresh perspective on my stuff. I look around my home, and the things that seemed so vital to me a few short weeks ago now seem old, dusty, and irrelevant. After being surrounded by other people’s things day in and day out, I had a mind-shift. I realized that all this stuff isn’t bringing me what it promised. It’s time to de-clutter….
