Your Story: Surviving Childhood Abuse

This story is not fictional. The woman who shared this story with me, did so in order to let anyone else who has experienced what she has gone through that you can not only survive, but create a new life and thrive. As a disclaimer, the identity of the person I spoke to has been protected, […]

The Painful Perils of Persistent Pessimism!

You know what I’ve learnt from most millennials? (That’s anyone born after 1988). Optimism, and anything to do with positive thinking, is for suckers. Suckers with no life, no game, and absolutely no swag! (Am I allowed to use ‘swag’ in 2015?) It is waaayyy more cooler to be a skeptic. A cynic. A pessimist, who […]

Why Being Openly Defiant Keeps Me Sane

I have always had an aggressive streak. I’ve had temper problems and been rude… you name it, I’ve been it. I haven’t always been a nice person. During the height of my “issues” back in 2008 and 2009, my father described me as “constantly argumentative.” I have mellowed out over the years of course, and […]

Remove the clutter from your life

GET RID OF THE CLUTTER!

I have to admit, I have been seriously off track for the last couple of weeks. I will be honest that I still have self-sabotage eating at the routines that I diligently created for the past year. I am not immune to self-sabotage. In fact, it has been with me for decades. When you spend […]

New Video: Let’s Talk About The “F” Word!

I had a wonderful Skype call this last week with a great friend of mine about failure. It boggles my mind how crazy and warped our views are on failure.

Video Of The Week: Don’t Ever Quit!

“Until you have had the taste of finishing, you will never respect yourself.” ~ T.D. Jakes   I resonated so deeply with the above motivational quote, because I discovered self-respect for myself when I made the decision to be consistent, for ONCE in my life. Since starting Push Factor, I had a lot of energy, […]

Why You Must Do The Things That Scare You! (Plus Pics)

“May you always do the thing that you are afraid to do.”   “Everything you want is on the other side of fear.”   “Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.”   I love quotes on courage and positive quotes about fear. I have […]

9 Excuses Why You’re Life Isn’t Changing Fast Enough!

Let me get straight to the point: You are comfortable. Very, very comfortable. And if you choose to remain this way, if you are doing nothing, making no plans right now, or taking any steps towards improving the circumstances of your life, then your future is very predictable.

10 Things You Ought To Give Yourself Permission To Be And Do

This fine, chilly morning, I woke up, walked up to the mirror, looked at my reflection and said, “Relax. You’re doing just fine.” I read somewhere that when most older people are asked, “what would you tell your younger self if you had the chance?” the most common answer is “You’re doing fine.” I had […]

12 Reasons Why Greatness Is Scary

12 Reasons Why Greatness Is Scary As Hell! (And Why We Should Pursue It Anyway!)

I don’t like preachy articles, and I hope this one is not counted as one, but if it is… OK! I hope we can all one day see the God in us. Most of us will probably never find out what our grandest selves are like, so I sometimes write idealistic articles such as this […]
