Distracted by the Noise

What distracts you from your goals? What leaves you questioning the path you are currently on? All around you are distractions and noise. People, places, and things clamouring for your attention, for your time, and for your energy. Some may have your interests at heart, while most have their own interests in mind. Sometimes, your interests may align but this can only be possible when you know what you need and want, outside of the noise. The noise can be overwhelming and supremely ...

Reality is What You Make It

Despite how we talk about it, reality isn't one thing. One stream. One truth. Reality is defined and designed by you, the individual. And, by design, you get to decide how "real" you want your reality to be.

All Opinions Are Not Created Equal

People will always have their opinions. And some of them may be about you, and about your work. An opinion is simply one person's point of view, one person's way of seeing things. It's no stronger or weaker than any another perspective. It's no more true or false. It's simply one person's judgement. Nothing more. It's the way in which one delivers their opinion and why, that allows their perspective to hold more weight or less. How do you deliver your perspective? And why do you ...
