The flame reignited. Individuality was to be celebrated not downplayed, to be shared not hidden, to be cultivated not deprived.
With the fire building, life unfolded leading me from teacher to teacher… and then I found home – 20 years after it had burnt to the ground. It’d been right there, with me… inside of me… the entire time.
My journey has been and is filled with amazing people (many of whom you’ll meet through interviews, blogs, and events that I host for their inspiring choices), an amazing community (specifically the students and alumni of the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching – iPEC), and an amazing environment (the surroundings and situations in which I regularly find myself and these incredible individuals).
What I have come to recognize was that my life changed because a series of moments. For a long time, life was happening to me, creating me. But something clicked in me, that fire inside gave me insight and most importantly in gave me awareness. It led me to become a more conscious person.
I can see how sometimes the simplest of moments can serve as extraordinary catalysts for growth and change; and that, if you start to look for those moments, prepare for them, and go into them consciously, you can intentionally create an inflection point for yourself that propels you towards who you want to become and what you want to achieve and experience.
Creating those moments and turning those moments into powerful and yet effortless momentum begins with CHOICE – the choices we make, the choices we don’t realize we make, the choices we want to make and how all of these choices impact the way we show up in our lives.
I can tell you is that it’s possible to create a ripple effect – with every choice building on itself and the many made before, that the choices get bigger, bolder, achieve more, drive more action, create more motivation, make your thinking and dreaming bigger… it begins in a moment and snowballs into momentum.
I know spend my days through my work as iPEC’s President, as a coach, husband, father, and friend helping others to find their natural, authentic rhythm to life so they too can experience life more fully and deeply than ever before.
