King Warrior Magician Lover

November 1st, 2015

Recently, I’ve been thinking deeply about this… What are ways to look at ourselves and others in a way that enables us to understand how and why we behave the way we do… I really enjoyed the King Warrior Magician Model by Robert Moore: Here’s an amazon link to the book: http://www.amazon.com/King-Warrior-Magician-Lover-Rediscovering/dp/0062506064



Once you familiarize with the model and even take a test that allows you to see how you are expressing the 4 archetypes in your life… the question becomes: how can one consciously express and cultivate these energies in order to play to one’s strengths and to shore up weaknesses through self-improvement and partnerships?

Here are some ways… not an exhaustive list of course… but a great place to start. Source: http://www.integralpsychology.org/a-journey-for-men—whats-your-archetype.html

Lessons from Basic Seal Training

May 25th, 2014

Start each day with a task completed

Find someone to help you through life

Respect everyone

Know that life is not fair and you will fail often

If you want to change the world, sometimes you have to slide down the obstacles head first, if you take some risks, step up when the times are the toughest

If you want to change the world, don’t back down from the sharks, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden

If you want to change the world, you must be your very best in the darkest moments

If you want to change the world, start singing when you are up to your neck in mud

If you want to change the world, don’t ever ever ring the bell

Everything that you fear, you have given your power to

How To Defeat Worry
in sanskrit, symbol for worry and funeral pyre are similar
worry burns the living
funeral pyre burns the dead

Today’s world there are many reasons to worry

Eliminating worry leads to a bulletproof mind, bulletproof business, etc.
Starts with mindset:
-victims are frightened by change, leaders are inspired by change
– this is a great time to be in business, this is a great time to be alive
– oppportunities to live best life and do best work

If mind full of worry, miss opportunity because we’ll miss

1. Model Bruce Lee – dump worries onto a piece of paper
Worries lingering in mind take away from two assets: mental focus and physical energy
Write on paper and then rip up a piece of paper
Then your mind has a space to work

2. Worry beans/beads
Excuses prevent us from taking action
Every time you worry, drop a bean into a glass… this makes us aware of how worry is affecting us
With more awareness, we make better choices, better choices, giving us better results

3. Stop complaining – Complaining is worrying made verbal
– watch words
– CHANGE words
– words you use rewire beliefs
– as you start using language of possibility of I CAN versus I CAN’T you will start to see the world through a positive set of lenses

4. Gratitude
– record gratitude
– Shift from scarcity to abundance
– if you are focusing on what is working in your life
– every morning, write down 5 things that you are thankful for
– do it for 40 days to rewire brain

5. Start to see problems as good things
Being alive means you will have problems
– problems breed innovation
– they help us grow
– they are good things

6. List out problems and then take actions on every problems
– take action on every problem

7. Look for the lessons in every problem
What is the opportunity here?
For every one of the big problems that is consuming my energy, what is the lesson?
Inside of every single problem that is causing stress for you is an opportunity to build a better business, life, install change, etc.

Man in the Arena

February 23rd, 2013

Man in the Arena

“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”

Teddy Roosevelt

On Pain – Khalil Gibran

January 8th, 2013

On Pain

Kahlil Gibran

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.
Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.
And could you keep your heart in wonder at the daily miracles of your life, your pain would not seem less wondrous than your joy;
And you would accept the seasons of your heart, even as you have always accepted the seasons that pass over your fields.
And you would watch with serenity through the winters of your grief.

Much of your pain is self-chosen.
It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self.
Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquillity:
For his hand, though heavy and hard, is guided by the tender hand of the Unseen,
And the cup he brings, though it burn your lips, has been fashioned of the clay which the Potter has moistened with His own sacred tears.
