FLOW: Following Lovingly Ordered Wisdom

Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

In light of expanded study, I'm evolving my language choice again. However, one term remains inviolate: flow. In my book "Free to Move," I define it as "Following Lovingly Ordered Wisdom." Although we never really "control" the circumstance, we feel like we have greater locus of control as our physical, mental, ...

How much Poise in your Power?

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

This is my yoga teacher, Amma. A tiny woman who so effortlessly transcends a struggle that some may be able to overpower, but which she does with blissful grace. Her example makes me aware of the unnecessary burden of strife, and "lightens" my load. Reading Shakespeare, I was struck by one ...

The Perfection You Seek - Seeks You

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

"The perfection you seek seeks you... Love itself describes its own perfection... Look at your body. What perfection it has." These three separate poetic thoughts by Rumi congealed for me this weekend. What awe that I have brought myself to the point where I could discover yet another dimension ...

“There is no Failure, Neo.”

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

Yesterday I met one of the most brilliant leadership coaches I've ever had the privilege of experiencing. She reinforced a critical reframe in perception: like the Matrix' character Neo, there is no failure. It is not the event which fails; only the perception of its ultimate value to your growth. Success ...

To Stretch, and not Over-Reach, your Limits

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

1. Everything works for 2 months. If you find yourself on the cycle of getting results, getting bored, getting hurt - then remember it’s not breadth of experience, but depth of exposure which matters, because it’s not about the program. It’s about you. Programs are vehicles. ...

No Steroids Needed.

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

My friend Dave "The Blonde Bomber" Draper, at age 25 and age 70. No Limits - Only Summits. (With regards to the recent rash of accusations of steroid abuse of those depicted in my photos...) You may be frustrated by your lack of results, disappointed by your lack of will-power, and confused ...

Paying off the Sleep Debt

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

Sleep debt is the difference between the amount of sleep you need and the hours you actually get. Every time you sacrifice on sleep, you add to the debt. Eventually, the debt will have to be repaid. It won’t go away on its own. If you ...

Spending or Investing in your Exercise?

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

So many us think of exercise as merely removing stored excess. Avoid the mindset trap of: "I'll eat this [crap], or skip this activity, and just workout harder tomorrow." If you want to have an awesome workout, then pre-load yourself with active recovery the two days ...

#1 Cop Killer in USA? (Not what you think.)

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

Today's seminar I taught for the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center' symposium in Fon Du Lac, WI introduced an unaddressed irony: police can be mis-perceived as getting paid for the job they do 3% of the time (protecting innocents from active hostile encounters), but it's the ...
