Tracking your integrity. (Because reliability is damn sexy.)

Ask three friends this question:

“On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being ‘unreliable loser’ and 10 being ‘phenomenally rock solid’, how reliable would you say I am?”

It takes some daring to ask this question of others. But if you wanna go pro in the integrity department, sometimes you do have to keep score.

Think of a few occasions where you were a bonafide flake and let someone down — not because your car broke down, or an act of God held you back — but because you spaced out, or let fear get the best of you or were less than awesome. (Think about your acts of loser-ness without coming down too hard on yourself. We’re just doing some research here.)

So, how did you feel being a bonafide flake?

And, what feelings are the opposite of the emotions you felt from letting someone down?

Who’s the first person/thing that comes to mind with this question: Who are you trying to impress?
Positive or negative, how do you feel about trying to impress someone?

Back to the bright side …

Recall some times when you came through with flying colours for your friends, family or team. You did exactly what you said you were going to do, and then some.

What feelings do you associate with reliable?

Integrity tracker. Optional. For fun. Maybe.


For one day, or even a week, keep track of all the things you say to people that you’re going to do for them.
Transactional, promises, on-going commitments, big new intentions, wooing. Pay attention to what comes out of your mouth, “I’ll send you that link, I’ll be there at five, I’ll call you and let you know, I’ll talk to you soon.”

Do you do what you say you’re going to do? Precisely? Loosely? Thereabouts?

The power of your word is in direct proportion to your self awareness.

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.
