“It’s not an accident that musicians become musicians and engineers become engineers: it’s what they’re born to do.

Aloha, Have you ever heard of the Ghost of New Years Past? Me neither. But I think Dickens’ old story, A Christmas Carol, is a good analogy of how too many of us run our lives: We remember who we’ve been in the past, act it out again in the present, then project it into […]

Do It Again. And Again.

  A baseball swing is a very finely tuned instrument. It is repetition, and more repetition, then a little more after that. Reggie Jackson Aloha, In a previous post, I addressed the question I get asked periodically by my NLP and Huna students: “I was doing so well but now I feel stuck. What am I doing […]

“Hunger and self-control do not go hand in hand.” – Kathy Freston Like most of you, I’ve been seeing a lot of holiday ads lately. It seems like they started somewhere before Halloween this year, with stuffed Santa Claus’s showing up right next to the pre-lit pumpkins.  And now I hear that Black Friday was […]

Aloha, Some of you may have parents and family who have supported you 100% throughout your entire evolution. They smiled when you dyed your hair purple in 8th grade, applauded when you dropped out of college to hitchhike through India, yelled “Mazel tov!” when you announced your engagement to the lover who was 30 years […]

Why You Aren’t Who You’re Supposed to Be

Aloha, Over the years, I’ve run into students who are frustrated. No matter how hard they try, how many processes they do, how many goals they set, how many barriers they overcome, they just can’t seem to create the life they think they should have. In my recent Huffinton Post article, I address “Why You […]
