You may have heard me speak or read my books and articles about gaining freedom from fear. This topic is so important as fear is the leading cause of stress. What we know, though, is that most often, fear is just a result of an overactive imagination of some perceived threat. It's just an irrational thought that creates this uncomfortable feeling or emotion. The good news? You have the power to change all of this.
It’s not the thought that matters as much as the feelings (or energy) behind the thought. As I have explained many times, your reality isn't necessarily created by your thoughts, but instead, the energy, or feeling, behind your thoughts creates your reality. We all have thoughts of fear. Some are fleeting, while others linger for a lifetime. Here’s a secret — it’s more difficult to try to control all of your thoughts than it is to simply cultivate the uplifted feeling of freedom from fear.
Have you ever been so immersed in something that time seems to just pass by without you even noticing?
Has there been a time when you were so open to possibilities that a solution to an ongoing problem or an idea that never occurred to you previously presents itself almost miraculously?
Have you ever thought of something, and all of a sudden, someone who can support you in achieving your goals reaches out, and it seems like an incredible coincidence or pure serendipity?
It’s not, really. It was you. You created the opportunity for these things to happen. Just like an athlete who scores the winning point or an artist who creates an inspiring piece, you too can harness your power and get into the flow anytime, anywhere, and I’m about to tell you how.
Many people live their lives and pursue their goals by struggling against mental and emotional walls of resistance, causing stress, burnout, overwhelm, and unhappiness. This is not...
High achievers are always pursuing the next level of success, even in areas that seem to be good already. They continuously ask themselves, “How can things be better?” in both their personal and professional lives. They don’t settle for mediocrity or the status quo. They are clear on what they want, and they find ways to keep achieving.
Many people do not do this because they feel they must stress and struggle to go after more. Because of this, they are afraid that they must pay a steep price, so they settle for what they have here and now. But the day you stop desiring more is the day you stop truly living.
The key point to understand is that you do not need to “kill” yourself to achieve greater levels of success. I’ve discovered that the less you stress, the better you feel and the more you enjoy the process of striving for...
Do you experience what you believe are impossible situations (or mountains) in your life that you can't change?
Are you hitting your head against the wall trying to solve a problem and feel hopeless?
Have you tried everything to resolve a concern or achieve a goal but feel frustrated and ready to give up?
Well, I was there too.
After years of searching for solutions but feeling like a piece of the puzzle to living a successful life was still missing, I made a discovery that changed everything. Once I learned how to harness the power of what I discovered, I moved what appeared to be impossible mountains, which cleared the path to a better life in many amazing ways.
What's fascinating to know is that I did this without stress and struggle. The stress and struggle I was facing before only made the mountains more massive and intimidating. Once I learned to shift something inside of myself — which is far easier than moving an actual mountain — the mountains not only...
After 20+ years of research on the world’s most successful people, the High Performance Institute discovered that highly accomplished people are very clear about what it means to be their best. Highly accomplished people understand how they want to show up in the world, communicate with others, and take on the qualities needed to succeed. They keep these ideas front and center, so they are sure to live as their best selves every day.
When I work with people as part of my high-performance consulting and success coaching program and through on-site workshops and off-site leadership retreats, I share the concept of gaining clarity on what it means to be your best. I then stress important tools and strategies everyone should use to remind them to live from their best throughout each day.
This may sound obvious at first, but are you doing it? Many people just stumble through life and hope for the best. However, people that live successful lives don’t just hope; they...
If your response to the question “What does success feel like?” is “I have no idea” or “I think I know but I’ve never experienced it,” then you’ve already identified the problem holding you back from achieving a successful life.
The secret to success—both personally and professionally—is creating feelings within you that emanate an energy matching the life that you want. You get back what you give out, so what are you giving out from an energy perspective? Once you know this, all you need to do is generate energy within you that matches the future you want. Soon after, more opportunities to experience that life will start to arrive with ease instead of stress.
Let me explain more clearly. Ask yourself these questions:
Energize and empower yourself by understanding that everything is energy.
Once you understand that everything is energy, you can stop feeling like a victim of outside circumstances and regain your personal power to create a successful life.
Researchers have discovered that within every atom, nothing is solid, and in fact, everything at the sub-atomic level is actually energy. They also have begun to uncover that the focus of your thoughts and feelings creates an energy that emanates from you, which affects the reality around you. Why does that matter to you?
I’ve discovered that this energy gives you more power over the outcome of your life than you may have ever imagined before. Everything in your life is a reflection of the energy that you give off. The more you elevate and expand your energy (or the way you feel), the more you elevate and expand your life, leading to greater success levels. Once you recognize this, you’ll want to start enhancing, uplifting and...

Being happy, vibrantly healthy and full of vitality – this is the secret to a good life.
Thomas Jefferson once wrote, “Without health, no pleasure can be tasted by man.”
Feeling alive and full of energy and experiencing the fullness that life has to offer – this is the answer to loving life, loving yourself, and loving others. I ask you today to think about what love means to you in your life.
Think about someone or something that you love. It can be a friend or family member, your pet, your home or your car, the beautiful trees, the mountains and the sky, the glistening white snow, or your favorite comfy chair and your favorite cup of tea. Whatever brings you joy, you will find it is a source of love and therefore a source of good health. The love you feel in your heart brings happiness to...
“Life is Short. Kiss slowly, laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly.” –Paulo Coelho
This is a powerful quote from a great author, but what if you feel that love is missing from your life?
Are you waiting for some great love to show up at your door, hoping your significant other will change so that you can experience more love, or relying on someone else to make you happy?
If so, you may be missing a key point that is blocking love from your life. You’re giving all of your creative power away to some outside person or circumstance. It’s time to take back your inner power and create more love in your life. This article will not only help you improve your current relationships, but it will also help you create new, more fulfilling ones too.
Let me ask another question to make a point: If you are feeling angry, bitter, lonely, needy, unlovable, unattractive, etc., would you want to hang out with yourself? Probably not.
What you feel inside creates...
You can spend countless hours writing and repeating your goals, but I’m here to tell you that you won’t experience positive change — which you deserve — until you change your energy.
So, what do I mean when I say “energy”? I’m talking about the energy that emanates from you based on your feelings. You can think about achieving certain goals all you want, but if you’re not feeling the expansive energy of positive expectation, those goals won’t come to fruition. Or, achieving them will be very difficult, leading to a result that wasn’t quite what you envisioned for yourself. From an energy- or feeling-based perspective, what you give off is what you get back.
You are a magnet to the feelings (not the thoughts) that you generate from within you. What happens around you is a reflection of what is happening inside of you. So, it is critical that you improve the way you feel while you define and...
