Life is a game of Chess

I’ve lately become addicted to a simple game on my iPhone – CHESS. It’s quickly becoming an addiction; Reason being is that I see so many similarities between the game of Chess and the Game of Life. We all must play on the same board. We’re all made from the same substances. He who thinks many moves in advance is the one that wins. The parallels go on and on, but have you ever stopped to think about the pieces […]

The Life Diet

Lately, I’ve been blessed with some amazing friends who take health so seriously that I can’t help but want to make better decisions. My good friend Julian’s one of the most disciplined people I’ve ever met when it comes to health and life, (check out his amazing podcast) and my friend Laura D has lost over 100 pounds NATURALLY. Being around them has inspired me lately. I think in anything if you want to be something, hang around people who […]

A Letter from a Special Person

I used to sit on my couch and think to myself, “man if someone just believed in me, I could really be something special.”  I assumed that my “big break” was in the hands of someone else and if someone would just give me the opportunity of a lifetime, my whole life would change. But that never happened.  No one gave me the winning lottery ticket and Oprah never invited me to sit on her couch.  Warren Buffet didn’t seek […]

How to Avoid Being Down to Your Last Dollar

Several years ago, my mom received a 2-dollar bill as change from a grocery store and gave it to me. I was amazed, I didn’t know 2-dollar bills existed. It seemed like a rare treasure that no one on the planet had, except me. I put it in my wallet way back then and never spent it because well, “why would you spend the only $2 bill in the whole world?” I loved that 2-dollar bill. Years would go by, […]

Success: The “Chocolate Milk” Way

I’m privileged to be able to speak to some of the top companies, universities, and athletic teams in the country.  No matter the venue or needs of the success-driven audience I’m speaking with, the question that needs solved is usually this: How do we build (or continue building) a winning culture? That’s precisely what I’m in the business of doing – building winning cultures by instilling winning mindsets in teams and creating great leaders to drive them.  I’m always looking […]

It only takes One

How many of you like to bet or gamble?  It doesn’t have to be in a casino, or for money, but we all make gambles of sorts in our lives.  Whether it be in an investment scenario, whom we choose to date or marry, or even as simple as who we choose to spend our time with, knowing that time is the one thing we can’t get back. All of us have dreams and ambitions.  Some may have more lofty […]

The Blank Page: Creating A Masterpiece

The cursor blinks at me as stare at the blank page. What should I write about? What direction should I take this blog in? This chapter, this narrative? Where should I begin? It’s a question I’ve asked myself on various occasions and I’m sure you have too. I used to be a chronic procrastinator. I would lie to myself and say things like “I work better under pressure,” or “I have time” but the reality was this – I honestly […]

Winning Lessons from the Runner-Up

I’m an avid fan of competition and the art of winning. That being said, I watch all sorts of different sports to study elite athletes competing at the highest level.  I look for commonalities between winners in various sports and apply them to myself and my work.  This week I found myself watching the Australian Open.  I don’t even want discuss the heartbreak during the women’s tournament when the sure-victor Serena Williams was upset by… hold on let me google […]

Beauty in Failure

I am a sore loser.  I absolutely hate to lose, at anything, no matter how big or small.  I’m the type to race my teacup yorkie to the mailbox and congratulate myself on a victory.  That’s how much I love to win. I hate to lose.  Losing to me is failure and the taste of failure is a lingering one; so I avoid it at all costs. Another truth?  I’ve failed so many times at so many things because of pride.  I […]

Life is not a Race

Most of us have a fascination with speed. We love watching the insanely fast Usain Bolt break world records. We admire young business minds that quickly rise to the top of the Forbes list.  We worship pop singers and their music releases that skyrocket up the charts. And our jaws drop in awe over the latest sports cars as they whiz by us. Our society loves to go fast. We love to be first. Is being first a bad thing? Not […]
