Many years ago, I received an invitation to travel to Dharamsala, India, the seat of Tibet’s government in exile, to meet His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
The group I represented at the time was to be interviewed to see whether or not we would have the opportunity to co-facilitate three week-long meetings with the Dalai Lama and other world leaders, to discuss how to solve the world’s most pressing problems.
Naturally, I said “Yes!”
Everyone knew that for over 40 years, the Chinese government had been actively working to destroy…

When I was growing up, every Christmas, my dad would tell us a story about how love manifests through human beings.
The telling of this story has become a holiday tradition in my family.
My sons now tell this story to their children at Christmas, and one day, my grandchildren will pass it on to their children, too.

How to share short stories of gratitude and thanksgiving to make your holiday even more meaningful
Sometimes it’s easy to forget that Thanksgiving isn’t just about turkey and pumpkin pie.
And while a Thanksgiving feast is certainly a part of how we might choose to celebrate, Thanksgiving is really about reflecting on and appreciating all of the good things that we have in our lives.
Think about your Thanksgiving Day last year. How did your family tune into a sense of gratitude? If you’re like most people, you probably sat around the Thanksgiving dinner…
Do you feel that your relationship has lost its spark?
If so, you’re not alone!
Over the years, I’ve worked with countless clients who looked like they “had it all” from the outside: fulfilling careers, comfortable lives, and beautiful families.
Yet after just a few minutes of speaking with them, they’d often confess that something BIG was missing from their lives.
Despite their success, they found themselves struggling to connect with their long-term partners.
And every time I meet someone who’s run into this kind of roadblock in…

One evening in a New York auditorium changed my entire perspective on wealth and abundance forever.
I’ve been studying transformational principles of success since 1971, and early in my education, I traveled across the country to see a famous spiritual teacher speak in an…
So many of us strive for perfection in our daily lives.
In the media and all around us, we are continually exposed to images of the perfect body, the perfect family, the perfect career, the perfect life, and the perfect home.
The pressure to be perfect can sometimes feel overwhelming, and this can cause us to make an enormous effort to ensure that nobody finds out what’s really going on “behind the scenes” of our life.
Many of us spend a great deal of energy hiding what we perceive as our imperfections…
Have you ever found yourself pretending to be someone you’re not in front of someone you wanted to impress, only to have it backfire on you in the end?
So often, we pretend to be someone we’re not around people whose approval we crave, instead of being authentic.
We may stifle our true feelings, and not express ourselves fully, in order to gain love, respect or acceptance from friends, family, colleagues or clients — and sometimes, even total strangers.
Have you ever found yourself pretending to be someone you’re not in front of someone…
Do you write down your goals and dreams on a regular basis? Or do you simply think about them, without actually recording them anywhere?
As it turns out, your answer to this question has a HUGE impact on your odds of transforming whatever it is you desire to be, do, have or give into your reality.
Why is the power of writing down your goals so important?
Dr. Gail Matthews, a psychology professor at the Dominican University in California, recently studied the art and science of goal setting.
Albert Einstein once said,
“The most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or hostile Universe.”
Deep down, we have all made a decision about what kind of Universe we live in, and our life reflects that.

This is an important question because the frequency of your thoughts determines the type of life you’re going to have, so it’s vital to keep your vibrational thoughts in alignment with the life you…
