What if you were “off to see the wizard” -- I mean THE wizard, someone who could give you everything you want.

Ask yourself:

  • What would you want added to your life?
  • What would you want removed from your life?
  • What one thing would you like to know?

Well, if you’re ready to get ALL of these wishes, then it’s time to step out from behind the curtain and BE the wizard in your life > > >

JumpStart - The Ego Trap

JumpStart - The Ego Trap

February 25, 2021

So imagine you have this “friend” who hangs around with you all the time.

And, this “friend” keeps telling you to do things that are hurtful to yourself and to others.

Then, when you’re tired, sad, angry, or perhaps a little inebriated, you finally give in to one of these bad suggestions only to then be ATTACKED by the very “friend” who told you to act this way.

Crazy, right??  Well, that’s the ego trap and chances are you’ve been stuck in it many times.

In this JumpStart, learn:

  • How to recognize and counter your ego
  • How to use self-compassion to erase the ego’s power
  • How to APPRECIATE the ego’s role in building your mental muscle (In spiritual terms, “no temptation, no christ”)

If you’re ready to break out of the ego trap, let’s get started now > > >

JumpStart - Drifting

JumpStart - Drifting

February 24, 2021

About 2 weeks ago, I had my mind blown when one of my great teachers mentioned a book by Napoleon Hill that I’d never heard of -- “Outwitting the Devil.”

I’ve been listening to it and learning so much and in this JumpStart I want to share with you the concept of “Drifting,” which according to the “devil” in the book is one of his most powerful weapons.

(BTW, don’t get caught up on the concept of the “devil” -- this is NOT a religious book).

Today learn

  • What drifting is
  • Why we drift
  • How negative experiences cause to STOP drifting

Drifting and being “unawake” in Buddhist terminology is the same thing, let’s explore how to WAKE UP > > >

JumpStart - It’s The Hope That Kills You

JumpStart - It’s The Hope That Kills You

February 23, 2021

One of my favorite scenes in any movie is the compelling scene in “Jaws” where Robert Shaw tells about being in the Navy when the USS Indianapolis is shot out from under him and his shipmates. 

For three days, he witnessed his companions being devoured by sharks and he was sure that was his fate as well. 

But then, something came into his life they gave him fear – it was hope.

  • As we begin to see the light at the end of the pandemic tunnel, it’s easy for us to actually get more fearful.
  • Learn why this fear is natural
  • Learn how to prepare for and overcome this fear

We are all getting through this together and part of that is understanding the struggle of seeing the end in sight...

Ego trap

Do wrong, blame you for doing wrong > > >

JumpStart - Help to Not Be a WPOS

JumpStart - Help to Not Be a WPOS

February 22, 2021

Last night, I was watching a Masterclass taught my Aaron Sorkin (think "West Wing," "Sports Night," "Moneyball," "Steve Jobs," and more) when I heard him say that after going over a new script with his friend and trusted producer, he often felt like a "Worthless piece of s***.

What, seriously?

Just one meeting with a friend and ally puts the Great Aaron Sorkin into a funk?

We tend to:

* Overstate the accomplishments of others

* Diminish our own accomplishments

* Take feedback too harshly

So, if this is true of Aaron Sorkin (and me) how can we use this to our advantage?

Here's how > > >

JumpStart - Lessons from Ted p5 - Winning & Losing

JumpStart - Lessons from Ted p5 - Winning & Losing

February 19, 2021

Without a doubt, Ted Lasso’s views on winning and losing are the most galling to the British press. 

“I believe you can have the most points on the scoreboard and still lose.” Ted said.  “Whereas, I believe you can have less points and still win.”

As a fan, this is a maddening philosophy but as a player...it’s absolute freedom.  Today…

  • Stop living by the scoreboard
  • Play for the love the game
  • Celebrate the wins of others

A real winner wins from within regardless of what the scoreboard says > > >

JumpStart - Lessons from Ted p4 - “The First Rule of Ted’s Fight Club”

February 18, 2021

Here are some common things people say about fighting:

  • “The closer together people are, the more likely they are to fight”
  • “Fighting is healthy cause it brings all the emotions to the surface”
  • “Fighting is a part of human nature; you have to fight to establish yourself”

Well, maybe there’s another way to look at fighting that we can get from our TV mentor coach Ted Lasso.

Ted says, “The first rule of my fight club is…” > > >

JumpStart - Responding vs Reacting

JumpStart - Responding vs Reacting

February 14, 2021

What we’re going to discuss today is something that, honestly, I’ve struggled with my entire life; although I’ve made some BIG gains in the last 10 years.

It’s learning to respond to things rather than to react and, as usual, it comes down to our own inner dialogue; discover..

  • How “Oh yea??” is the ego’s first line of defense
  • Why “Where do I want this to go?” is a much better question
  • How to distinguish the ego’s voice from your own, highest self so you can respond in love rather than react in fear

It all comes down to “Mastering the Gap” > > >
