What Do Pokémon Go and Job Hunting Have In Common?

The game world is abuzz about Pokémon Go, the new online game that was recently released in July 2016.

Developed by Niantic for iOS and Android devices, the app has been downloaded by 75M people. Cra-cra!

In September 2015, Niantic announced it was developing and publishing Pokémon Go in partnership with Nintendo and The Pokémon Company for iOS and Android.

Nintendo has benefited immensely from this partnership. Since the release earlier this month, the company’s market capitalization has doubled to over $42B.  In addition, Nintendo’s stock recently broke the single-day trading record in Tokyo this century, with $4.5 billion of stock changing hands.

To be up front, I know nothing, nada, zilch about Continue reading What Do Pokémon Go and Job Hunting Have In Common?

What Will You Do When Everything Goes South On You?

As I finished my day of client calls and teaching life coaching classes, I grabbed the remote and unconsciouslly clicked the channel changer thumbing my way through the 64 or so stations available to me here in the Philippines.

I happily stumbled upon one of my favorite motion pictures of all time: “The Martian.” Spoiler alert! If you haven’t seen the movie and plan to do so, go pop a big bowl of popcorn, watch the flick, then return here to finish this post.

The First Step Is The Hardest To Take

Although it’s hard for me to believe, today is my 250th blog post in 250 weeks.

At the top, I want to personally thank all of my readers who have taken the time to not only read my posts but also pass along my essays to their sphere of influence. Thank you so much!!!

The hardest part in beginning my blogging journey was taking the first step. In a minute I’ll reveal why most people fail or put off taking their first step.

Eight years ago I made an impassive first attempt at a blog.

After two posts I caught a convenient case of excuse-itis and found numerous reasons to quit: my writing wasn’t Continue reading The First Step Is The Hardest To Take

“There Are No Mistakes” Oprah Winfrey

Many of you have an endgame.  An extraordinary goal, challenge or dream you want to slay to make your life more fulfilling, meaningful, complete.

You begin the journey bubbling with excitement as if you’re about to plan the vacation of your life.

But then your itty bitty shitty committee starts to whisper sweet negatives in your ear.

Your self doubt kicks in wondering whether or not you’ll be able to stay the course and cross the finish line.

Instead of keeping your eye on the prize, Continue reading “There Are No Mistakes” Oprah Winfrey

Consistency Wins the Race – A Thought From A Chiropractor To Improve Your Life

Last week while perusing Facebook I came across Dr. Joe Borio, a practicing chiropractor in Cicero, NY since 1991, doing a livestream seminar he was hosting for chiropractors in Chicago called Achieve Excel Master.

I started seeing Dr. Joe for my aching back in the mid 1990’s. I was extremely satisfied with his chiropractice services, positive outlook on life, and the attention to detail regarding every aspect of his practice. (Which reminds me, I need to find a local chiropractor while living here in the Philippines.)

From the moment I walked into his charming colonial offices with the giant model spine out front, stressed to the max with a knot in my lower back, to the time I left feeling relieved, healthier and more alive, every step of the way I genuinely felt he was earning my business.

I didn’t watch the entire livestream Facebook event, though I Continue reading Consistency Wins the Race – A Thought From A Chiropractor To Improve Your Life
