Do not leave your happiness up to random chance like I had done for the majority of my life. Thanks to podcasters like Tim Ferriss and digital content creators like Evan Carmichael I now wake up with purpose and intention to give myself the best possible chance of experiencing happiness each day.
A Thirst For Inspiration
There is a reason that self-help and personal development are an 11 billion dollar per year industry. Life has a way of throwing an unending parade of stressors and difficulties in our path. Couple those challenges with that feeling in our gut that there is something out there in the world that is better for us and you can see why many are seeking to grow and find more fulfillment out of life.
There are countless personas within the world of creating empowering content who have authored books, made audio recordings, and delivered soaring motivational speeches in halls across the world.
The access to this life-enriching content is mostly available right at our fingertips to stream on demand for free. Whether you are looking to shed an old destructive habit, start a new business, or undertake a new mindfulness practice, there is sure to be a message that can speak directly to you.

The Power Of Meditation
Inroads To The Mainstream
Meditation, or the general practice of mindfulness, seems to be slowly making inroads into the collective consciousness of the mainstream.
Just about anywhere you turn these days you seem to run into an article, podcast discussion, or some sort of social site mention about the benefits of meditation.
I understand the desire of those who practice meditation to want to share with the world the benefits they have been experiencing, but in the past, I have found myself a little hesitant to bring up the subject amongst my peers.
Something about voluntarily sharing that I meditate felt like bragging and maybe even coming off as slightly pompous, so I have kept my practice close to my heart until recently.
I can no longer hold back, though, from sharing the many benefits that meditation has brought into my life.Read More

A Spiritual Quest
I am hesitant in writing anything about spirituality for fear that my thoughts could get wrongfully conflated with reverence for organized religion.
Much about organized religion sends me running for cover. I do recognize and appreciate it does bring some peace and comfort into the lives of some people.
Unfortunately, even the solace it brings to some can at times be draped in the type of detrimental dogma that ultimately provides a net loss for society as a whole.
All that being said, I am on a spiritual quest. Make no mistake about it.Read More
