Make changes without criticizing the past — your future will thank you for it.

You don’t need to burn the dock to push off your boat.

You don’t need to dis’ how you’ve done things in order to do things differently.

There’s no need to criticize the past to validate the future.

But we do.

We look at how we over worked it, or how we missed the mark, or all the reasons it, they, you, me, we fell short. We start to shrink the value of the past so that we can justify taking new aim, or giving notice, or taking the leap that will move us in a new direction. We give ourselves and others logical — and often deprecating — reasons that it’s time for a change. We take a perfectly good essay of our life-learning and accomplishments, and we red pen it with margin notes of all that could have been done differently so that we can damn well do it differently next time.

Not only does dissing how you got to where you are dishonor your past and make for some negative juju, it weighs on your transformational process. How you regard your past influences how your future unfolds.

You did what you needed to do at the time with what you had to work with. Thankfully, praise be, alleluia! Now let’s move on to the part when you have a break through and wake up knowing more. It’s not about knowing better, it’s about knowing more.

And now you know
where you want to go
next.

The most powerful possible Yes to women

…to the dark, the spacious, the sweet, the jaded, the women who live as certain as light rays,
who renovate broken boardrooms and policies with justified anger and overwhelming Love —
Love of inclusion, of ecology, of bone solid Truth — Love of Love.

Goddess of Grief Danielle LaPorte

the goddess of grief: getting to the other side. (and there is always another side.)

Grief is one of the most powerful Goddesses. She swallows your agony and lets it tear her apart. Beautiful birds fly from her belly – each one an insight into life and your power. Grief brings the whole flock to your window and she waits and waits to reveal universal truths to you. She goes to the depths with you. She rises with you…

The Principles of Active Waiting vs. feeling-like-a-loser, losing-your-mind kind of waiting…

I was at a friend’s cluttered apartment and he was saying how much he wanted to have a live-in girlfriend. And I was like, “Dude, where would she put her stuff?” He got his tidy on to make space for the live-in love he was waiting to find. That’s active waiting — happily preparing for what you trust is on its way to you.

this video has been getting a LOT of attention

What are you willing to do for your creative dream? Are you willing to transform? To give it up; be the fool; re-write your story; not recognize yourself; believe differently; be something, someone, you have not yet known? It does take a “miracle mindset”. And…

Some marketing know-how. Cosmic meets pragmatism.

You were born for this. See what I mean…

We believe in something bigger than ourselves. We understand that the cultural obsession with productivity is killing our joy & harming the planet. We KNOW the world needs leaders who uphold a triple bottom line—economic, social, environmental. So. This message is for you. (Especially if you’re a Creative, a teacher, a leader, an entrepreneur—or want to be.)
