Summer’s Here!

As I started my Sunday morning brick workout, I wasn’t necessarily thinking about the significance of the day. I was carrying some extra emotion considering that it was my first Father’s Day! What I wasn’t thinking about at 5:45am but was quickly reminded (before my first mile) that yesterday was the first official day of […]

The Value of Vulnerability

  How many friends would you say that you have at this point in your life? I don’t mean co-workers, I don’t mean your workout partners and I certainly do not mean your Facebook friends…. I recently read a study that stated the average number of friends that any one person possess has dropped from […]

Your Purpose is NOT Your Own…

It took me the better part of 25 years to discover my purpose and even if you are 25 years beyond what you thought was attainable in the first 25 years of your life – it’s not too late you aren’t perfect, I’m not perfect…nobody that has ever walked the face of this earth has […]

Passion is the Picture of Purpose

Pain is part of life, if you can learn to anticipate to plan to persevere, I’m confident you will find your passion, whether underwater basket weaving, triathlon racing – as in my particular case – or whether it is helping others who are in significant need, your passion is personalized and you and only you […]

Perseverance Pays

So with pain comes the need to persevere, which naturally is the fourth step on the purpose process. Perseverance is the successful overcoming of whatever it is that you consider pain to see through it to the other side. Now we talked about anticipation, if you can actually anticipate that pain ahead of time you […]

Pain is Progress

So moving right along to the third step in this journey is simply pain. Think about the many sources of pain in your life, I know there are many of my own which we won’t get into the details, but if you can considered all that might be involved from a negative standpoint considering this […]

Pursue with Fierce Abandon

Potential is meaningless unless you move into the 2nd step on this journey. Which is simply pursuing your potential. So, officially step 2 is Pursuit. What is one thing you can do today that can close that gap between where you are and where you want to be, notice how I said 1 thing – […]

First Stop: Potential

I feel here are 6 primary steps along the journey to your purpose. It starts with your potential. If you think about the basic concept of the word potential, we were all created with capabilities. Some of us like fruit, some of us like to play soccer, some of us prefer individual sports. The difference […]

The Process of Purpose

The goal of life is NOT perfection. I chased it to the point of death (literally) but lived to share my experience. My book “The Problem with Perfect” will be released on August 13th and I could not be more excited. In the meantime, I wanted to take the next several weeks to give you […]

No Regrets

When its all said and done, what will your life reveal about your intentions? Will you have lived them out with fierce abandon or will you have built a track record for consistently falling short? Your life will be rewarding or regretful, and its up to you to decide. The sooner you find your purpose, […]

If You Care, You’ll Share

Ok, so I told you we were starting a new series today… Would you mind if I share one more thought before we get down to the details? On Friday, I wrote about passion. I even went so far as the show you my passion in play. I love the sport of triathlon and feel […]

Passion is the Payoff!

Passion is the result of perseverance. Perseverance is the decision that must be made to overcome pain. Pain is the result of change. Pursuit is what causes pain. Potential is the reason for the pursuit. On the other side of passion is your purpose. Your purpose will not be perfect, but it must BE. Today’s […]

The Choice is Your’s

How badly do you want it? And on that note…what is the “it” in your life at the moment? Your purpose is out there somewhere, but are you willing to find it? Remember, pain is your compass. Moreover, have you decided on the front end to remain resilient no matter the cost? Desire is not […]

Community

Life is not a solo journey… The best laid plans will fail without consistent input from friends and family. You may feel like you are smarter, stronger, more capable and that others are often nothing more than distractions. I am confident that my life at this point would not as meaningful without my community. Taking this […]

Adventures are Awesome!

My adventure has taken from me Nashville to St. Louis onward to Minneapolis with a side of San Antonio and Austin! From the Longhorn state to New York City, ending with a […]
