On her knees, Hyvon triumphed! It was the most unconventional way I have seen anybody finish a marathon... #leadership #endurance
It was gripping as it was inspiring. On all fours and her chin she crawled. Deep inside her, she knew she had to finish. Why? She had conditioned her mind to fight to the end. Quitting was not an option. As 29-year-old Hyvon Ng’etich pushed through the pain barrier, I was in tears. The determination […]

Just at the “I do” part of their late afternoon ceremony, the setting sun suddenly showered through one giant stained glass […]

"Complexity is your enemy. Any fool can make something complicated. It is hard to keep things simple.” ~Richard Branson. Do you find yourself over-complicating your decisions? #goals   #leadership   #personaldevelopment  
At the center of human existence is a craving for freedom. Wars have been fought to preserve freedom. Men and women have shed blood to the point of death. Our desire is to live to our fullest potential. We will go to great lengths to become prosperous. Freedom is sweet and highly valued. Why, then, […]

New beginnings are difficult. They are messy. Challenges are strewn all over the landscape. And many times we may just resolve to keep to the tried and tested ways that seem to have worked in the past. However, this will this help you to thrive? Will it propel you to your full potential? #leadership #goals
Isn’t it amazing how complex our mindset is? We may not acknowledge or appreciate this, but unconsciously, we do what determines how we live, coexist or fight. How many times have you responded with “I am fine” even when you are struggling? Habit dictates that you may have unconsciously completed the title above with “…Go!”. […]

+Tal Shnall challenged my perspective when he asked. What is your one word for the coming year? What your word for 2015?
Have you ever struggled with making New Year resolutions? Does January 1st come and by the end of the month you are back to your old ways? To be honest with you, I find the whole resolution-making process tiring and cumbersome. Over the years, I have completely ignored making any resolutions. A good friend challenged […]
